I'm a firm believer that global warming related climate
change is not a possibility in the future, but that we are living in an age of
rapid climate change now. While we can't prevent changes
from occurring, the human race must act swiftly to minimize the
number and severity of negative effects in connection to our
I first became aware that "something was in the air" as
a child; but disregarded this notion later and put it down to an
overactive imagination. Climate change was brought to my attention
again in the 80's while working as a fisherman; listening to stories
of older fisherman who used to be able to predict the weather, but
could no longer do so. Again, I ignored this largely, choosing to
live in a business as usual way - but never quite being able to
shake the feeling that something serious was going on. The
environmental events and influx of information over the last few
years has left me with no doubt.
I've always had a great love of nature and our planet; not so
much so what we humans do to it. In recent years, I've seriously
questioned my own role in the degradation of the environment and I'm
now in the wonderful process of transition to a lower impact
lifestyle. This has included offsetting all my home and business electricity usage with
green tags - even this site is powered via the same means!
It's important to note that global warming isn't something that
we can just buy our way out of through the purchase of tags and
offsets. In the western world, we just consume too much - many of us
having an ecological footprint so great that it would require
several Earths to support our lifestyle if everyone lived the same
way. Offsets are a last resort for addressing the excesses in our
lives that we haven't been able to tackle as yet and to go some way
to help repairing the damage we've done to this point.
