Concerns Planet Earth
All around there is a buzz about global warming, the effect of fossile fuels, the co2 in the atmosphere, the vanishing of glaciers in various areas from pole to pole and in every continent as well - Himaalaya, Andes, Alps, Kilimanjaro, - and then there have been forest fires with devastating effects, even within the natural phenomena....
All around there is a buzz about global warming, the effect of fossile fuels, the co2 in the atmosphere, the vanishing of glaciers in various areas from pole to pole and in every continent as well - Himaalaya, Andes, Alps, Kilimanjaro, - and then there have been forest fires with devastating effects, even within the natural phenomena.
Some of us are convinced by the science and the scientists, and some can see it happening around them too; others are more concerned about the effect of such a belief on their lives immediately (do I have to stop driving to feel guilty, is my biofuel or even just the regualr steak afftecting the hunger in Africa, I don't want to feel guilty, they must be lying about global warming, it snowed yesterday); and still others say, why not do something that would promote health for everyone, after all the air and water ought to be clean for the future of everyone, our children the future of humanity.
So - how about it, would you like to join in the concerns many of us have about the future of humanity and our only home, the planet Earth?
As usual, few rules - in short, keep it decent.
Feel free to start discussions but keep them within the scope of the group's concern (we can always have another group for discussing other pressing matters, or even not so pressing ones.)
Same thing about adding books to the group shelf, feel free to add any book that is within the scope of the subject for this group, in the "we are reading" category (there is no category at present for "reading suggestions", for one thing, and unless we have read it as a group "have read" does not fit). But if you wish to suggest any book that is not within the subject to the members, don't do it by using the group shelf, however excellent the book - use the specific option of "book recommendation" on the site generally.
And generally as far as possible avoid any controversy that can get personal for anyone.
