Every small steps on doing something will somehow lessen the pressure on the environment, it is better than doing nothing.
I'm not the typical "environmentalist", actually the term itself is use in wrong people, it is a shortcut for environmental scientist, people who have knowledge on how the ecosystem works and ecological environment. They should be called advocates, actually marami akong kalaban na tulad nila, since I'm working for sustainable development projects, anti talaga sila (like greenpeace). These people, just like Bambi said, OA.
The problem sometimes is, people tend to decline on believing the science kasi may kinaiinisan kayo (like Al Gore) or hindi kayo pabor sa mga changes o programs na ginagawa. Same mindset of businessmen, hanggat makakagawa kayo ng paraan, pipigilan at pipigilan ninyo (like what happened sa Kyoto Protocol, wala pa ring kapalit, delaying tactics at its best lalo na ang US).
How many times na explain, even sa net available yun, kung bakit ganito ngayon, the problem for some people, they are narrow minded and don't have enough knowledge and still they keep insisting their beliefs. Why not do something na kahit simple, may mawawala ba sa inyo? Takot kayo sa changes na mangyayari and even sa taxes na binabayad ninyo?
You rather pay for the feeding and pro-poor programs, but you ignore the fact that the over exploitation of resources and dwindling will cause increase in poverty and hunger rate?
This is a finite earth, the carrying capacity of the planet can't handle our population, our needs.
I just can't believe that some people will choose to ignore this and wait what will happen.
