I guess the earth is technically OK in the long run, but we aren't, nor are a whole lot of animal and plant-species.
so the question should be: how do we save mankind(or to be PC the human race), along with nature as we know it?
the good thing is that there are many different ways to do this, but the important thing is that we should always start with ourself.
it is through our concious choices and actions that positive change will come.
the only positive change we can do to others and to the earth is to start with positive changes in ourselves. positive changes in your everyday actions, positive changes in how you relate to others, and on a more material note positive changes in how and what you spend your money on.
the same goes to what we see and read: you can chose what you read, and what you take in. keep it on a positive note rather then reading about the daily petty violence, child molesters, Celebrity divorces, tragic murder cases and abductions. stuff that in the true sence of what is news worthy, really doesn't qualify.
It doesn't improve your life, it doesn't fulfil you, it doesn't give you information on which you can make informed decisions or improve your health, life or society. it doesn't prepare you for anything, and lastly it doesn't make you feel better about yourself.
so be the change you want to see, and unhinge yourself from the claws of the sex and fear based media machines, and believe me, they are working overtime to keep you distracted.
