Global Warming is a popular topic in the media. What’s worse is it’s a partisan issue. If you’re a Democrat, it seems, you are concerned with Global Warming, and if you’re a Republican, you think the Democrats are over reacting.
Instead of harping on Global Warming, which is hard to define and harder to stop, focus on waste. Waste will more likely cause significant harm to the earth, and possibly space, far more than Global Warming. The elements of Global warming include waste. Greenhouse gasses are produced by waste (generally in the form of pollution).
Waste comes in many forms, and is different for everyone. For instance, to the Amish, the most conservative, middle-class American is wasteful. American here is used to describe those from the United States. To the middle-class, the excessive frivolities of the upper-class is wasteful.
It is very difficult to function in the mainstream of the United States without being wasteful. Commercials tout the latest products that are a must have if you’re anyone. Inadequate public transportation in many cities makes it nearly impossible to use everyday. In most states, you have to buy an overpriced, poorly built house. If you rent, are you wasting your money because it isn’t going toward equity? How do you waste less?
