Philosophy is the study of everything. That’s my favorite definition, at least. We are all, for practical social purposes, physical beings. And what does the entirety of a physical being depend on, if not its environment?

These days we hear all sorts of hubbub about climate crises and rising oil costs, environmental iniatives and sensationalist chicken-littling. A lot of us feel like we should do something. A lot of us don’t. I fall into the former category, and I hope you do too. If you don’t, keep reading, and I hope I can sway you.

I’ve been working with 10-yr.-olds recently, and whenever one of them hears the words “global warming” he yells “GLOBAL WARMING! WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!” I always feel like telling him that he’s missing the point (of course he doesn’t care). We are all going to die someday; that has nothing to do with global climate change. But what is it that is so frightening about it? Should you and I be scared? And if we are concerned, what should we do about it? I feel like a lot of people feel like “Oh no! I should do something! But, as I don’t know what I should do, and don’t really feel like changing my lifestyle anyway, I won’t do anything.” I want to provide in this blog some insight in to what you and I can do to help the environment in which we live, and why we should. Enjoy.

  1. I had no idea you were interested and can only applaud your blog and hope you will keep it up. Of course, I am discovering it several months late. And, you are starting another blog, and I know how hard it is to write two blogs at once. Still, I hope you will find time to continue this one with at least a blog a week.
