The recent trend of abnormal weather patterns and the spread of pandemic-in-waiting avian influenza are just the stark reminders of Nature's cry for help. These are the grave consequences of Global Warming, and, with the ever rising of industrialization worldwide, they will only become more frequent and severe. We're witnessing the dramatic shift and diminishment of the entire ecosystem and we can neither escape nor deny its existence. We can't escape because we're living under its cover and every change to it will inherently affect our lives, such as the weather, and weather-induced disasters and health related problems. We can't deny it because it happens to our neighbors, be it a deadly landslide, or an extreme cold snap on another continent, or the asthma attack on Johnny, the kid next door.
If we don't wake up in time to save the environment, we'll only further alienate and expose the next generation to an eternity of greater risks, significant nature disasters, and the decimation of the ecosystem and its inhabitants.
By standing up for the environment, we may not enjoy much in the beginning but if it means for the survival of the next generation then it is all worthwhile.
Think about it, let's stop the infighting amongst humans and the clash of religions. Instead, let's concentrate on the rescue of the next generation.
