Looking at global warming articles online, I came across this article that I thought was interesting.
What I thought was interesting was the lengths that people go to get their idea out about their beliefs about global warming. Whether you believe in global warming, or if you think is alot of bull, people are very passionate about it. This reminds me of how people feel about politics and religion, whatever side you are on, you generally tend to be very passionate and stubborn in your beliefs about it.
I think this article brings up some good points, ie. it shows how hard it is to cut your "carbon footprint" down and how if people need to join together to really make an impact. Also shown is how modern day conveniences are very hard to give up and are such an assumption and ingrained into our lives, basically since we are born. Examples of this are washing machines, hair dryers, ovens, basically any appliances. Can we imagine living without these inventions of the last 100 years or so?
I wrote in an earlier blog about how people who feel very strongly about their belief that global warming is occurring sometimes go overboard and look "silly" to the everyday person (see Gore, Al). Does "Ethical Man" go to far and do more harm for his side of the story than good?
