Okay so you know about all that "Go green" and "Save the World" stuff right?

Honestly i think about the world and i feel sad and i actually do stuff like leave my house and turn off all the electricity and sleep outside on the grass somewhere and stuff.. but i don't do this often.. I know all the problems with the world and i know its our fault..

Do you guys do stuff to take care of the world? Like What?

If you don't try to take care of the world, why not? Don't you feel guilty about being a part of the destruction of our home?

Edit

Okay this isn't really exactly about being green but look at this sad clip about this cat who got hit by a car and the male cat is mourning and trying to revive his mate :\

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BlAui75C5s

Even though that isn't exactly about going green, i still think i want to put my opinion here..

I blame all of us humans for wanting convenience and comfort so badly... Honestly we don't need computers, cars, supermarkets, online shopping and all that stuff.. I know im kinda hyprocritical for saying this since im probably not going to stop using computers, supermarkets and sitting in the car with my dad.. But i honestly think we do not even NEED all these things.. we are getting what makes our lives more comfortable and more convient.. at the extent of the lives of so many other creatures out there??! are we inhumane?

Okay honestly i want to freak out... We are so selfish as humans.. i know we can't just take back all the convient and comfortable technology we have and go back to the cave men time cuz no ones gunna do that... but at least guys.. at LEAST.. can we try to hold back? and make it easier for others to live around us? Every time you use your water, your computer, your electricity, your car etc.. you may be causing another death in the world. Gas pollutes the air, Electricity contributes to global warming.. and COMPUTERS use electricity in case u didn't know. Water takes away water from all the poor people out there and the animals who innocently just want to survive :\ Here we are, not only surviving, but feeding ourselves with things we dont even need.

yeah well i do... but at times i can forget, i feel extreemly bad about what were doing to our world but hey you know what?? its actually improoving the so called "hole" in the o-zone layer is actually closing up its not so much of a problem as it was 10 years ago and scientists are almost certain in another 10 years it will be gone!! so YAY!!! we are infact taking better care of our earth than ever before, as we are getting smarter but its true it depends on the contribution of everybody but it seems that at the moment were doing an ok job!

REally? im so glad (: though you have to recognize that i pointed out these scientists or something found out that the percentage of americans that care anymore has DRASTICALLY dropped... you can probably guess why :\ But because of that, we have to realy be careful and recognize that even if we're kinda safe now... there are still many other bad things going on.. Like Polar bears losing their homes..

I saw this documentary.. about earth and all that. It said that many animals had to migrate from their natural habitat to another place.. like these kind of insects that eat pine trees are forced to migrate to this other place that has pine trees, and they are practically destroying the whole forest there :\ What is happening is not only wrecking the ozone layer, it is driving animals crazy to the extent they are going to wreck havoc all over the place as well. And imagine ice fish or polar bears in the arctic places.. they might have to migrate one day cuz of this too, therefore imagine fish and polar bears that don't belong, attacking places like new york!! O__O (im exaggerating, but still there are other kind of possibilities that we dont noe of :\ )

I recycle and use stick deodorant rather than aerosoles -- every little helps right?

I do nothing.
Though, you should be impressed to here we have energy saving lightbulbs. But I'd rather we didn't, you can't freakin' see anything .__.

IT'S A CONSPIRACY.

You use electricity, water, and transportation vehicles right? If you use that and dont try to contribute something by taking care of the world, you are pretty much contributing small bits of destroying the world :\ I know its comfortable to not think about this, but seriously, you're "not doing anything" is actually helping to do a LOT of stuff that will kill many innocent creatures out there and in the end destroy us as well :\

I don't think you can do anything about it even if u care. Sure there's many more problems that we face in todays society but thinking about them doesn't really relate or give yourself a sense of joy that you're actually saving some bears. I think your thinking to deeply into a topic that doesn't really have much thought into it.


It may be that im thinking too deeply into it... But honestly, all i want is to try and see if other people are aware :\ cuz i noe you don't have to think too much into this, but some people dont think AT ALL about this. And to me that isn't okay at all, because people, animals, and nature is dieing out there because we dont want to step out of our comfort zone for even a second :\

Edit:
I am not just softening a solution, i am trying to test the awareness of others about their surroundings... Cuz totally not caring i dont think is okay :\ Caring enough will lead to action (unless ur the inconsitent kind) and even small bits of action contribute and contribution is just what is needed

You just made me turn on everything in my room, even water.

Good thing the rent is fixed, so I don't have to pay extra for electricity and water. I can just let it run the whole night.

You are one of the people that make life hard for others, just because you are a selfcentered, brainwashed little kid.

Going green is a turning into a fad. Even that term is a gimmick nowadays. Everyone says, "Oh, we're going green, it's good for the environment!"

Then they go and do the minimal of what they can and feel good about themselves. And they justify it by thinking, "well, if we all did just a little bit, the Earth'll be better for it!"

Woot, I bought a few light bulbs and recycled some bottles, boy did I just save the Earth!

The hell, if you really do care, go join Greenpeace or something.


AND, why the hell is energy efficient things or things that are made so that they are better for the environment, MORE expensive than their commercial counterparts? That makes no sense, and gives little incentive to change our ways.

In the end, it's all a conspiracy to end up making you pay more for things you already have.
