Global Warming

I am no expert on global warming, far from it, I am just an average joe, well an average Dean to be precise, that is a little confused or concerned about the whole issue.

We get reports how global warming will increase the earth’s temperature by so many degrees over the next 50 or 100 years. The weather reports talk about el nino and la nina effects and how that will bring rain to some areas and droughts to others. In Australia we are seeing massive floods along the east coast for the last couple of years while the centre and western parts see record fires and droughts. We hear reports of the polar caps melting and the sea levels rising. We also hear so many conflicting reports from boths sides of the argument if these are just cycles or really the effect of global warming. We get reports saying that even if we do something locally that it will have little or no bearing on the global situation. It is little wonder that many people are either confused or apathetic about the whole thing.

In my opinion the governments of the world are going about it the wrong way. They set up the grand departments to research climate change and global warming and introduce taxes to encourage the big polluters to change. Taxes will just make it more expensive for the consumer unless there are real incentives to change.

I am a big advocate of ‘think globally - act locally’ whereas governments seem to want to act globally so people think they are thinking locally. Politics in the main is all about popularity and the perception of going a good job so they can get elected next time.

I feel that to tackle global warming we need to worry about what is happening locally, after all that is the only thing that each of us individually can have some control over.
Global Warming or Pollution Reduction

What is the root of the whole global warming problem, is it not pollution. So why do we not bring the whole campaign back down to something that people can have individual control over.

The scientists continue to talk about things happening in 100 years, well most of us, unless they discover some miracle drug to keep us living longer will not be around to worry about it. Yes I want the planet to be a better place for my kids and grandkids and for generations to come but we need to start now and tackle the root problems in a way that the average person can understand and do something about.

I can look out my window right now and see for kilometres, the blue sky, the trees, the birds chirping, the dogs barking, the water flowing down the mighty Torrens River, local joke as it is mostly just a trickle at the best of times, the simple things that make life worth living from day to day. I live in Adelaide and I think we are very fortunate that our pollution levels are low but I would hope we never get to the levels of places like Beijing where the smog is so thick that you can only see a few hundred metres in front of you and people are encouraged to wear masks to avoid breathing in the pollutants.

Don’t get me wrong, I think we need to have long term plans and governments are in the best position to do that but I also think we need to stop the ‘look how good we are’ policies and actually put things into action that will make a real change.

Here are a few things that I think we can all do to make it just a little better for each of us locally.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Ride / Walk to work instead of using the car
Catch public transport if it is too far to ride or walk
Plant a tree
Grow your own vegies
Put your rubbish in a bin
Buy products that use environmentally friendly packaging
Compost your food waste
Buy local to reduce transport needs
Convert to an energy efficient car

I truly think we need to promote the reduction of pollution rather than Global Warming.

If you are a sceptic about global warming then reducing pollution is still a good thing, if you are an advocate of the scientific evidence that global warming is happening then reducing pollution is a still good thing. Then promote reducing pollution and it is a win-win for all rather than confusing people with something that may or may not be occurring.

I would be interested in hearing your opinions on the global warming and pollution reductions.

Yours in Success,
