My Greenmagination has been running wild lately with all the media coverage of Global Warming, and the media's use of the phrase World War III. This British 8/2/06 article says: "Alarmism about global warming in Britain is tantamount to "climate porn" as it arouses people without encouraging them to take action, a leading think tank claimed."
That article goes on to say: "It criticised the alarmist approach of depicting climate change as awesome and irremediable, prompting a "we are all going to die" response. But it also attacked the "small actions" approach." While a small amount of actions by a small amount of people should be criticized, this Eco-Congregation site says it all: "Small actions add up to big results." Just think about all the people and companies that bought and promoted war bonds during World Wars I & II.
Americans can be very resourceful in a crisis, but do most of us (as well as major corporations) believe there are urgent crises, and ones that we can all help do something about? Here's what one of the world's leading theoretical physicists (Dr. Stephen Hawking) says about the survival of the human race.
