Saving Ourselves

May 5, 2008

This really struck me.

Climate change is not going to end the world. The warming atmosphere simply means the Earth will change.

What we’re all working for, is not saving the world, it is saving ourselves.

One Response to “Saving Ourselves”

    Yes! I think it makes such a difference to look at it from this perspective! Reminds me of an Amnesty International pin badge i was given that says “Protect the Human”. I sometimes worry that people see what are typically considered as ‘environmental issues’ as distant from their everyday existence and so easily become disengaged/fail to engage with them. One hopes that by bringing it home that it’s really about saving ourselves, a whole new level of motivation and action would emerge.
