Global Warming Solutions: Can I Really Help?

This is my last post on this blog site, and I wanted a sense of closure, which is why I made the title “Can I Really Help?” Now it should be apparent that most people who write on this blog site believe in climate change and that we all want to save the world, but is it really a viable thing for average humans to accomplish? What I am basically trying to say is what can one man do to save the world? Sure he can recycle and buy energy efficient lightbulbs, but will that have any impact on the fate of the Earth or the condition of out atmosphere. Unfortunately, the answer—at least in my opinion—is no.

While the above statement is true, there is more to it. The problem with this mentality, is that if everybody thought like this, the whole world would get worse. While one person’s fight to save the environment won’t make a difference, if the whole human race were to convert to energy efficient lightbulbs and start driving hybrids the combined effect of everybody going green would have a huge impact.

So if you really care about the environment, you should start by taking steps that you would want other people to take, then you should go tell your friends and family about the fate of Earth if we continue on this path and maybe, you can even send them to this site.

    Arman,
    Loved the sense of closure in this post. This was a great way to wrap up the class and answer the question that everyone has and wanted answered.

    I love this quote because it perfectly explains the situation. The problem with this is that we need to know how many people it would take. I don’t think there will ever be a complete closure. Our future in involving other people isn’t looking to bright either.

    I love the quote, Arman. It explains the situation clearly and what is happening in the world literally right now. I think you can help, but it would probably take more research. You could have explained some things that helps the world become greener than just hybrids and light bulbs because you could have sparked some solutions between us.

      Firstly, thanks for the feedback! While writing this post I wasn’t really sure what to say which is the reason why it is so small. If you check back on sunday it will be longer and I will try to use your advice in my re-writing.
