Look at the envirinmental problems in nowaday,and we will all agree that it is just so terrible and we have to do (at least say )something about it.Otherwise ,we may treat ourselves as an outsider of this world.Once,I thought that it is too late to do something to this extremely polluted world now.But later on, I think that if everybody just think it that way,the world will just keep going worse and thsi is not a positive attitude at all.Well,if you will only give one opinion to this world on environment problems and solution,what will you say?

I differ a little on your assessment of the issue, but one challenge that I see is to continue the rise or to start the rise of the standard of living throughout the world. Raising the standard of living does several things to improve the environment: people who are not living in a subsistence culture have more time to research new technologies and to worry about the cleanliness of the air. I think that the challenge is to raise the standard of living in a sustainable way. Another challenge is to maintain the standard for developed countries in a way that is sustainable. Moving to an alternative source of power is not going to be easy, cheap or clean at first. I think that is sounds good in a sound-bite from a politician, but behind every great movement was much pain. But our politicians and scientists should not have to lie to make their point. There is a good reason to move toward alternative fuels...independence from oil and the corrupt dictatorial regimes that oil supports. My personal opinion is that independence from these regimes is enough of a reason, the environmental argument is just more grist for the mill.

I think that the most important thing that we as human beings need to do to help with the problems that there are in this world with pollution, is that we all need to be innovative in coming up with ways that we are able to reduce the dependence on fossil fuels. We are all dependent on vehicles these days and these vehicles typically run on oil. There needs to be more innovation in ways to operate motor vehicles. There should be rewards for people that are coming up with better ways to fuel vehicles.

Get rid of the poluting industry, brown coal mining and replant area's were coniferous forest disappeared. Get back that 50 % of forest. Maybe a solution would be investment in New economy, new technology, ICT, hydrogen economy (fuel cells, new energy centers), service and thoeries oriented businesses and import energy instead of producing polutting energy!

I agree that recycling is one solution. I've been recycling some things for years now although we get paid for the cans and bottles. Although I recycle mostly pop cans, I wonder about the soup and food cans. I think they should be recycled too.

All I could say start being environmental awareness should start at home and stop dumping waste and instead find something good out of waste such as recycling. Finally start caring and stop being selfish all this campaign should not be depending on other groups concern but everyone need to take a hand to volunteer itself beginning the practice at home so when you come out of the house the strategic plan to help the environment does not stay there but it is contain within the mind and should be acted afterward.

My opinion will be plant more trees, reduce the usage of chemicals,avoid more usages of vehicles and love and thankfulness towards our planet. If we have the thankfulness, we will not cause these pollutions which is now the threat for the world.
