  • Protecting the environment is crucial to, not only the quality of life for humans and animals, but to protecting our economy and wealth as well.
  • For future generations, we believe that we should leave it the way we found it or better.
  • We need to meet Kyoto targets ASAP.
  • North American Carbon Footprints are much too high. Instead of flattening, our Carbon Footprints are still growing! Even if we are able to flatten it, the globe will still get warmer. We have to reduce our Carbon Footprint to stop Global Warming.
    • House sizes have exploded but family sizes have shrunk.
    • North Americans have been brainwashed by car marketeers into thinking that driving a S.U.V. makes them more rugged and outdoorsy.
    • S.U.V.s have 500-700 extra pounds of gear to enable them to drive over rivers and logs and yet, almost nobody does this. It has become one of the most superficial and pretentious fads in our society. At the same time, it has been extremely damaging to our environment, but making millions for car-makers.
  • Due to human over-population, we have livestock over-population. According to a 2006 report from UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), livestock produce more Carbon Dioxide than all of the cars, freight trucks, railways, airplanes and container ships in the entire world. The planet's livestock animals breathe out three billion tonnes of Carbon Dioxide a year. Humans breathe out two billion metric tonnes of Carbon Dioxide a year. Quotes from article:
    • "UN...described the spiralling increase in greenhouse gases from livestock as 'massive' and asserted that the world governments must urgently address the problem.
    • "As Pogo astutely observed so many years ago: 'We have met the enemy and he is us.'"
