    Default Our Planet.

    The Earth are we killing it ! the waste we produce climate change etc.
    In a modern throw away society are we frankly just wastefully using our natural resources to a point of no return.?

    No disrespect but you haven't got long left, why do you care about saving all the muslims and gays? They're going to flourish whilst you (and me) rot.

    @Lyle, Walrus, Miles, Brock, Alpha - educate these "media led saps".
    First off that's not the way to @ me to get my attention Fenster.


    Secondly I'm not likely going to be lectured on the climate and what society must give up by someone who lives like DiCaprio does or Al Gore. It's like being lectured on the benefits of Socialism by Tom Morrello, Bernie Sanders, or Billy Bragg...yeah I'm sure it's a beautiful thing (like everything else) when you have enough money for it.


    I've got a smaller carbon footprint than any of those guys even if you factor in their indulgences I mean "Carbon Offsets" . I hunt, I garden, I have chickens for eggs, I use everything I can either to eat, feed my birds or pets, or feed my plants. I've also got a house that is probably the size of a garage Leo has in one of his many many MANY houses.


    So yeah I'm doing my part....oh and I don't litter either, I don't even leave shell casings behind

    I'd like to not have to go to the grocery store ever again for meat or veggies that I can grow. Haven't had to buy eggs in a while now and chickens are very similar to goats in that they'll eat anything. They eat ticks which is lovely as well, couldn't mow the yard last year without having a tick or two on me.

    I'm not going to become a Luddite, but I am going to limit screentime like a motherfucker as far as the little one is concerned. I was limited in my tv/video game time as a child, probably could have been more so. Most of my childhood before my teens was going outside to play or ride bikes.

    I've added in the garden for a specific reason as well. As early as possible I'd like to get the little one to "help the family" by having little chores like feeding animals, picking vegetables, washing vegetables, etc. I figure the more responsibility they can shoulder at a young age (no pressure mind you, I'm not sending the tyke to a salt mine or anything) then some of life's lessons start sinking in earlier than what other children get. These are also activities we get to do together away from distraction which will be nice. Working together to achieve a common goal builds cohesion and teamwork which is of course brilliant for families to have. You establish trust, work on your communication skills (that's a big one right there), and you figure out what roles you can play within a group. You'll also run across conflict resolution and those skills are beneficial in life as well.


    but anywho, yes nature is extremely important and it is a damn shame more people are not better stewards of the environment but at the same time the Paris Accords were absolute crap as they were unenforceable and regardless of what other nations do China and India on their own will shit out enough garbage to compensate for everyone else attempting to be tidy. If China was held to the same standard as the United States then maybe we can talk otherwise it's just feel good legislation that hurts business and does fuck all for the environment....oh it'll line some pockets of certain well connected former politicians and big CEO's but the little guys, nah they won't be able to compete.

    China and India are two of the worst country's for polluting there inviroment chemicals pumped into rivers vast amounts of air pollutants etc.
    They are industrial giants but very poor standards in basically cleaning there emissions.
    Basically there are GB and the USA in the 50s
    we cleaned up our act but producing cheap steel plastic etc comes at a price.!

    When mother earth is ready, she can flick us off her like a flee collar to a cat. We will sooner destroy each other before we destroy a close to indestructible object; a friggin planet.

    Only time will end this floating ball. Myself I look at climate change from the perspectie that if we treat mother earth right, she will treat us right. If we don't? We go the way of all previous said ruling nations.
    All's lost! Everything's going to shit!

    I don't think it is overly complicated and I repeat the same thing again and again. The human population is expanding far too quickly and thus more and more resources are consumed, more and more waste produced, and the oceans increasingly turn to fragile baths of death. Nothing is infinite and my views on this issue are not aligned with Peterson, but with David Attenborough, in that I think the best way to help the planet is to be self disciplined, have self responsibility and to consider your impact and that impact comes from not increasing the population so dramatically. Incremental change can be managed, but seismic change cannot. On a personal level, I will drive and listen to Springsteen all I like as it is far less destructive than single Mum with 3 kids with 3 different Dad's which will then multiply ten fold in a couple of decades. I have no guilt as Thunder Road cranks up and the AC flows. Yep, a touch hypocritical but I gotta go to work unlike single single Mum with 3 different kids with 3 different Dad's!
