"climate change or lifestyle change"

April 6, 2016 8:31am CST
We see it, we feel it and yet there has been some or the worse not even an ounce of action being taken. We do know that change starts from us hence, we are expected to lessen or delete the unnecessary things that leads to our death. Yet, knowing that climate change is happening we still do the things that needs and must be abolished as simple as burning some plastic bottles and turning on your air-conditioner and throwing your plastics anywhere and anytime. They say that lifestyle needs to be changed for us to stay healthy and fit. So others go to the gym, eat healthy and nutritious foods. After being fit, some post it on their social media site to be "recognized", I reckon, and still drink and sometimes eat unhealthy foods. So basically are there any changes at all? well, aside from the climate that is. If we want to lessen the burden of mother earth have we taken any actions?

I guess it is the bi-product of technology.. People, being people, think of ways to make life a very comfortable one that we often fail to see things beyond. In their minds, what mattered is the "now" and that they never though of the side-effects. However, there are still those environmentalist who finds ways to somehow lessen or eliminate these negative effects to mother earth. There are still those who chose to live a life naturally. And there are also those who continued to research more about technology but is more bio-friendly...

But do really think that these so called "bio-friendly " technology is indeed an environment-friendly per se' ?

@talktoryan there will still be some effects but at least not the same as the non-bio-friendly ones

@Dextoi so is it suffice to say then that there is NO cure.?

Drinking and eating unhealthy foods from time to time does not make one unhealthy nor does it mean that person has not changed his or her lifestyle. Also, there are some people who need air-conditioners due to breathing problems, but that does not mean that they have not taken other steps to help the environment.

Point taken that some do need air-conditioner for breathing. But I must say, per experience, there were days that these "technology" did not exist/matter. For there is wind that is free and enough to sustain our needs.

@talktoryan In the days where air-conditioners did not exist, people were not living as long, and more people were dying from breathing issues or complications due to breathing issues, such as pneumonia and bronchitis. People with asthma, emphysema, and COPD, for example, need air-conditioners, especially when the weather is very hot and humid. Otherwise, they can literally suffocate and die.

@talktoryan It should be better if we accompany it with action.

Sustainable development gets into the scope right now. I think Lifestyle and nature should go hand-in-hand.

I agree with you on that ajmal, but the question remain: "action" has there been any?

@talktoryan Yeah most of the people arent aware of the severe effects of their actions. Awareness should be given to all. By that we can bring the 'action'.

I think the climate change is partly due to our lifestyle change. If we do not have cars, planes, and people still go around by walking or horse riding, we probably will not feel the climate change so much.

Sure... like socialize online instead of going visiting. Use cell phones to communicate and reduce movements. What this does is, it reduces competition...keeping up with Joneses mentality, in the process we don't need large homes, to own somethings that we did not want in the first place. It brings down demand for things that are unnecessary, and reduces fighting jealousies, unnecessary fuel consumption either for movement or for manufacturing things, or shopping, and in general promotes austerity which is what has gone out of window these days.
