What will it take for us to take the dangers of Global Warming seriously? We read about it, hear about it and see the evidence all around us, but we shrug our shoulders when asked to do our share to fix the problem. Yes, it seems like a problem that’s too big for one person to solve, but you’re not just one person. Your efforts when mimicked all over the world will make a big difference. But if everyone starts thinking that nothing can be done, then we’re doomed.
Global warming has the capability to wipe humanity off the face of the Earth. Our planet is warming up, but it’s been warmer in the ancient past – Mother Earth can handle herself. It will go on revolving around the sun, but without us. We will not survive.
Read these alarming facts about global warming. These are not invented to scare people as most detractors of Global Warming claim. These are facts.

It may sound like doom-saying, but the picture painted by these facts is the result of our actions. They are future outcomes, not future events. These events are happening now. As you read this, the glaciers are melting and the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere increases.
It will take all of us to make a significant change, from the individual to the biggest companies. But until the magnitude of the problem is understood by every human being on the planet, it will be very hard to prevent the possible disasters that global warming can bring.
We need everyone to do at least one thing to lower their carbon footprint. We need people to make other people aware of the seriousness of global warming and spread the word. Every one of us who lives on this planet should raise their voices so governments will double their initiatives to lower carbon emissions.
You’re not just one person. You can do so much to start a ripple of actions that can change our global habits. We need these ripples to turn into one global initiative! We didn’t live like this many centuries ago. We weren’t so wasteful then.

Let’s wake up and look at the elephant in the room. It’s there and it’s staring us right in the face. Global warming is here and it’s a threat to life as we know it.
