What is the most you would sacrifice to prevent this impending climate change?

Asked by benjaminlevi (2982points) June 29th, 2009

If you are not concerned with our impact on the climate or think we somehow don’t have an impact, please skip this question instead of posting about how global warming is fake (as there are many other threads devoted to that topic already)

Whatever is required. The costs of doing otherwise are much greater.

I can’t place limits on what I would/will sacrifice to prevent this. I will do anything I can for the enviornment. I think it’s important to realise that everything eco-friendly makes a difference. Don’t wait for other people to act. Be pro-active.

I wonder about this too. It’s easy for me to say I’d do anything but in reality I find it hard. A couple things I have given up on are driving and eating meat. That’s roughly a 30% reduction in greenhouse-gas emissions. For me to reach the required 90% i’m going to have to do a lot more…

I’d give up my car if it would make it quit being so darn hot.

I cannot give up my car, but I just bought a Ford Fiesta Econetic with a mileage of 65 mpg. I’ve installed a 5.5 kW photovoltaic system on my roof. I also cut down on my meat consumption which is not only healthier but also helps mitigate climate change. I order more and more from the Internet not only because it’s more convenient but it also makes more sense that 1 van drives through residential areas dropping off 100 packages than 100 cars driving to stores to buy 1 package of something.

I’m afraid we can’t reverse it…....Of course we can help to eliminate more destruction. It’s just so darn hard to do our part, when the BIG problems don’t go away. Oil in the gulf, shuttles to the moon, the list goes on. I recycle everything I can, will that really make a difference? It’s such a drop in the bucket, when government waste and projects are at a high….........I honestly don’t think we can solve this. We cannot save enough, I’m afraid. The end is neigh!
