How can we protect future generations from climate change?

    I think that we can protect future generations from climate change by reducing the amount of toxins, pollutants, and contaminants that we are omitting as a human race. There also needs to be an increased awareness among humanity concerning our own individual negative impact on the planet. As we have witnessed currently with the Obama Administration, there is a concern for the state of our planet, however economic issues are the main priority right now. Unfortunately, in my opinion, it is a catch 22 situation in supporting our current economy and the way that society is set up because it is in direct conflict with what is the best for our environment. Each person right now has to take responsibility and do the very best they can with what they have to reduce their carbon footprint for the sake of future generations.

    At this point, protecting future generations from the effects of global warming is probably impossible.  While there are certainly things we can do to slow global warming down (specifically by reducing green house gas emissions and taking steps to remove green house gases from the air), it’s unrealistic to believe that we can stop it or reverse it quickly enough for future generations to not be affected by it.  I do think that one of the most important things we can do is to educate our children about climate change, as well as other environmental issues that they will likely be faced with, to enable them to live a less harmful life than past generations have.  And of course, as part of educating our children, it’s important to set a good example and show them what you are doing to support the environment, in the hopes that some day they will be able to do even more.
