It's OUR own dumb fault ! !
Humanity's fate is ALL about the overconsumption of Energy. Yet, AMERICA Continues to WASTE over 70% of the Energy it Consumes. OUR hedonist energy waste is culturally pervasive, inexcusable, and suicidal.
(1) 100's of millions of lights unnecessarily burn energy every day and night.(2) We over heat, over cool, and over light our municipalities, businesses, offices, homes, churches, SCHOOLS, etc… (3) Over packaging is the norm, and recycling is inadequate. Our landfills are busier than ever. Plastics (all of which are derived from petroleum) are the cause of most cancers.(4) Most Americans do not minimize their driving; road congestion is horrendous.(5) America's incessant obsession with driving and road construction is the ultimate contradiction to sustainable living.
The only way to eliminate waste and over demand for energy is by using the economic impact of taxing energy. Crude oil must be taxed at $160 per barrel(42 gal) and this 'energy consumption tax' be offset by making Federal Income Tax begin at $60k. Only with a substantial and tangible dollar consequence/reward will there be the incentive to conserve energy. Until the price of gas is $6 to $7 per gallon, Americans will not significantly reduce their over consumption and energy waste.
Ford, GM, and Chrysler continue toward bankrupt, yet basically continue to do business as usual. They must transition to the lucrative business of building solar and wind 'energy producers' for the world's 6.7 BILLION people reason$. They already have the needed infrastructure to mass produce, sell, and install these products. Failure to innovate the auto industry away from energy consumption to energy production will cause the ruin our economy and the environment . Energy demand cannot continue to support dwindling fossil fuel 'supply'.
China, India, and other former 'developing countries' have just begun to compete for the world's remaining fossil fuel. Continued global demand for energy can only be satisfied with conservation and renewable sources.Global warming continues to increases with our persistent waste and overuse of fossil fuels. Human extinction will be the reward for our failure to rapidly and broadly implement renewable energy supplies. The incentives necessary to implement sustainable and renewable energy supplies can ONLY occur when we employ the economics of TAXING ENERGY.
Use your influence and resources to promote Energy Conservation. Americans need to be ever reminded/told to STOP the/our/your Energy WASTE !

Yes and Amen from your English cousin! How about looking into the vastly underated and unpublicised area of meat production in the world, which arguably contributes to an immense waste of resources- meat needing two and a half times land than veggie diet, or 5 times the land than vegan diet. Add to this the whole meat production industry's pollution and CO2 production, let alone the greenhouse gas methane produced by all ruminants being far more destructive short term than CO2, and the awful...

Add to this the whole meat production industry's pollution and CO2 production, let alone the greenhouse gas methane produced by all ruminants being far more destructive short term than CO2, and the awful psychological dependence people have on eating meat. All the inhabitants of mother earth have the right to life, including the forests. We all need to raise consciousness...

All this is well put and it is the reality, however like Hilary Saunders mentioned, you completely overlooked the number one destructive force on this planet (aside from the human greed and ignorance) is the animal agriculture. The environmental impact is the worst hands down, winning over the whole transport and auto industry. We are killing 60 billions of land animals per year, we are killing this planet and us and our future and most people are just blind to it. This planet has to raise...

We are killing 60 billions of land animals per year, we are killing this planet and us and our future and most people are just blind to it. This planet has to raise its consciousness on every level and the most important and pressing matter is to create a vegan world.

Dude..First off, you REALLY need to stop drinking the Kool-Aid, and go get an education. Global Warming(LOL) has be proven to be NOT man made. Have you not read the papers released by the scientist who first stated it was man made, but now confess,they were PAID to say that because they cannot PROVE it, even at that, what we produce in pollution, is equivalent to trying to change the PH level of the Ocean by pissing in it.

SECOND, to raise taxes on oil would CRASH our economy and millions would lose their jobs, and go hungry, crime would increase to an historic level. Anarchy would soon follow and Millions of people like you, would die. As someone who works in the Wind Industry, I can state for a fact that if we put a Wind Turbine on every square foot on the planet, it would still not produce the amount of energy needed to sustain life. You see, we need energy to live. It keeps the pumps running to provide water to humans, it keeps filtration systems working so that we have CLEAN water. It keeps the heat on in the coldest parts of the planet where people would die without it, and cool in the hottest parts of the planet.

The planet has gone through periods where we were a fire ball, and then an Ice Planet. Mother Earth has regulated herself for Billions of years before humans even arrived, and will continue long after WE are gone.

We have enough energy both above and below the ground to last 1000's of years right here in the U.S. you need to know the FACTS....and do yourself and the world a favor, read, learn, and educated yourself!

There are no clean sources of energy; all energy has a downside. The use of palm oil creates habitat loss, and the loss of many endangered species. Not only are the orangutans impacted by the loss of habitat, but as we lose rain forests and other habitat, we do not know what other species we are losing.

Watch the David Triplett video where he clearly cures his skin cancer with hemp oil, according to Rick Simpson who is trying to get the laws regarding this cure changed. It's been legal without restriction since BC and was used in his holy annointing oil called Kanneh Bosom regarded as an expensive oil. Your Bible has been altered by King James the book of enoche is proof enough for me. Also check out Alex Jones at Boheimien grove and realize that big pharma and ptrochemical companies are...

Son de difíciles entendederas. Aún no aprenden que de los árboles, selvas, bosques, plantas verdes en general y plancton marino, depende la mayor producción de oxígeno en nuestro planeta. Bosques y selvas, constituyen los mayores "pulmones" terrestres. Ayudémosles a comprender este asunto que a los "pobrecitos" avaros que quieren transformarlos en oro, cual torpes reyes Midas, se les hace tan duro de entender.
¡Bienvenidos a esta causa!

The growing use of palm oil around the world is causing untold destruction to rain forest and the accompaning habitat and biodiversity. There is nothing good going for it except to line the pockets of greedy companies. AS USUAL! I try very hard to not buy products with palm oil in it but it has crept insidiously into all manner of things. Biscuits and other food stuffs, shampoos, etc etc. The world today has so much to answer for in the slow destruction of our planet. Makes me cry with sheer frustration.
