If you were to ask me my opinion on the whole global warming debate in contemporary culture, then I would probably say that I'm not really sure what to think. I'm certainly not a scientist, but I'm still not convinced that what we're experiencing with "global warming" isn't just a cycle that will change in the future. Anyway, without getting too political, I do believe that we have a responsibility for caring for our environment in a better way. For instance, I have half a closet full of plastic bags that I get every time I go to the grocery store. Do I need all of those plastic bags, or am I just contributing to a land fill somewhere? I decided to make a big purchase yesterday when I was at Wal-Mart buying some cold medicine. It was about 1:30 AM (don't ask why I was up so late), and there was a cotton/canvas type bag hanging at the checkout counter. "How much are the bags?" I asked. "$1.00. Do you want one?" "Sure." So now I'm contributing to a cleaner environment, and it only cost me a dollar. I just need to remember to take my bag with me next time I go to the store!
