The approach of explaining the effect of global warming is somewhat like this, “Do you know doing this can harm our planet and the effects can be severe after few thousand years.” The person who listens to all this thinks, “What have I to do with what can happen after few thousand years?” Sometimes I think that my approach of explaining the effect of global warming is somewhat foolish. Who is concerned about what will happen after few thousand years? Do you think the generation on earth thinks of something beyond their own life and the life of their children? This approach therefore should be corrected. The people need to be told the immediate benefits of living in a healthy environment. The talk on future should not go beyond their children. People take steps when they understand and for understanding one needs knowledge. What percentage of people living on earth at present have the knowledge and understanding to take steps to prevent what can happen after few thousand years? Then why this approach? Let’s accept the fact, people believe in God not global warming. We are making a place for the concept of global warming, we can introduce it but cannot make it rule the human mind…not at this time at least…not so soon it will be possible.
