This post may sound stupid to some but it is time that we take Mother Earth more seriously. Her resource cannot last forever, especially after squandering so much of them, like forests, water, crops and many more.
Its so marvelous that it took Earth millions of years to build it and we have managed to destroy it withing a few thousand years of inheritance. We think ourselves to be the 'God', to waste as much as we can...without the care for the other living animals. ( We treat humans like animals...thus it is obvious that we would pay much less attention and care to the "real" animals out in the wild!).
Acres of forest are being cleared everyday around the globe and some of us aren't even aware of the things going on. Ice caps and glaciers are shrinking like never before and it is estimated that 20% of Florida, Northern California, london, NYC will be e flooded within the next Millennium! But some people are trying to get these into the focus ( thanks to the directors like James Cameron). We have taken Earth as granted, did whatever we felt like, tried to take over Nature. But its enough. Now we should do something, not only for our sakes but for the future, a more eco-friendly future.
Let us try to make this world a better place to live in. We can all contribute IF we WANT to. Being Ignorant won't help...you cannot tick nature, you cannot over power it. I just want to make you feel, to look around yourselves and SEE that there IS a world outside the Playstation 3, Xboxes and the Hollywood film stars. And that world is reaching its doom!
I urge you people to contribute, no not by money, but by saving resources. Individually and by individual million we can contribute a lot. This is not a "****"...but just an appeal to my friends, brothers and sisters. We can make a difference if we all WANT to. Ignorance can lead us so far. Ever since childhood I have been trying to make these things known to my community, who are basically poor Indians. And since you people are mostly from the "developed" countries..I am sure that you will understand much better.
I know that there will be, and bound to be a lot of negative comments but I wont be discouraged, as I know that there are people who are willing to support this.
Let us not waste water..remember that many people (in thousands and perhaps millions) have to walk scores of miles to get a pot of water. Secondly please don't use your Cars and Motor Bikes to go to school...save fuel. I wish the Captain Planet cartoon was being aired here! It is us who can prevent the third World war, which is going to be fought over Oil and Water.
I have created this thread so that we may bring in new ideas about how to save our Mother..to make it more sustainable, healthier and cleaner. Lets make a smarter planet, and to make this we have to be smarter. I didn't find any worth post in this forum for sometime now, and thought to put something worthwhile. Something to think and ponder upon. Just remember that we have nowhere else to go, our only hope is our Mother Earth and if we kill it, we will die. NASA people hasn't yet found out a habitable place in the universe!!
Please post any ideas that you have to make this world a better place to live in!
