More citizens of the world need to agree:
It’s the greenhouse gasses.

Ticking

Global warming is predicted, in the not-too-distant future, to cause some level of havoc on a grand scale. The prudent thing to do is to act ASAP. But there is resistance. It is possible to understand why that is: the idea of individuals saving a whole planet may sound absurd, or at the least feel overwhelming.

Addressing the causes of global warming does mean big change. That is why people look to government, business, and institutions to provide solutions – things like home lighting, efficient appliances, electric vehicles, solar panels, heat pumps, etc. These have allowed individuals to participate in saving the planet at a modest inconvenience.

These actions aren’t enough: if we don’t address the big-ticket items – greenhouse gas production, electrical generation and transmission grids – consumer actions alone won’t fix this problem.

A fork in the road

World populations are stuck at a fork: take action that dramatically reduces greenhouse gas production now, or ride out the consequences.

NGOs are stuck too.

When overwhelmed, sometimes the best thing to do is to take another look at the resources you already have.
