Before you start rolling your eyes and fleeing from my blog, let me just say a little something. This post isn’t to try to convince you to vote for who I’ll be voting for or to brainwash you. I’m not going to mention any candidates or even argue for or against any beliefs. Hear me out.
By now we all know what this blog is about: living a healthier, happier, more independent life. In my life in general I do my best to be a good person. I do things with the express intention to not harm you or me or anyone. So when the topic of climate change comes up I kind of lose it. I honestly don’t think it’s a topic most people can speak on because, quite frankly, most people aren’t scientists. Most scientists are not studying the climate or its possible changes. So why don’t we all the butt out and think for a second.
Here are a few things I consider when thinking about climate change:
- We are all in the same Earth boat.
- We are using natural resources faster than the Earth can create them.
- There is no con to living a cleaner life.
- There is no con to having a cleaner planet.
- Leaving a better Earth behind for posterity is a good thing.
That being said, I’m not sure where the argument is. I don’t see why politicians are squabbling about climate change. Whether or not you think it is real doesn’t matter, there is no reason to perpetuate unhealthy practices. A healthy planet and population should be prioritized before the money you can make keeping it dirty. If, hypothetically, our emissions are not harming the environment and causing global warming, they are still absolutely terrible for us. They are the most literal form of carcinogens. It’s pollution and it is hurting you and me. So forget the politics, improve our world so we can be healthy.
