In a nutshell our evolving civilization is the cause of global warming impacts we are facing and which is silently killing us but nothing has been done so far apart from adapting gracefully to the changes: changing of light bulbs to cut the cost and power consumption, purchase of organic foods, recycling of materials and listening to the empty rhetoric from our politicians.
we should stop our daily complaints of asking what the government has or is going to do for us instead we should ask ourselves what we are doing for the government and realize our part in every development initiative, more so on our deteriorating condition of our biosphere
