Colleague at work recently said 'It's up to the government to combat global warming, not the businesses, it's not profitable'
I say - no. It is everyone's responsibility. We all live on this planet, we must all, collectively, look after it. Just like a mould growing in a petri dish, if we consume every mineral, there will be nothing left and we'll die out.
I say everyone can help.
Everyone can recycle.
Everyone can save power and fuel.
Everyone can write to their MP.
Everyone can sign a petition.
We are not alone and there are many celebrities also trying to help - Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Mark Ruffalo are just a few names of people that have put their reputations on the line to say what really matters.
There isn't ever a future where we have to stop worrying about our environment and can do as we please. We will always need to recycle and always need to use renewable energy. Fossil fuels will become our past, and we will become something of the past if we do nothing. Resources will become scarce and prices will continue to rise - this isn't scaremongering, this is our fate, unless we prevent it.
This planet is worth saving. Save it.
