It's a wasted situation!

Forget the sciences, ignore the statistics...
because you don't need them in this case.
The only problem that EARTH faces at present is the mistakes that we make and then ignore! Later when these mistakes all combine and kick our ass, then we wake up to it and try to resolve it, but sometimes its too late...
One of the serious one is the problem of excessive wastage that we do since the time we wake up in the morning till the time we sleep at night.
Leaving taps open while getting ready in the morning, especially while brushing teeth, not using
"use-me"s and wasting food (one of the most common problem) etc.
All this sounds kiddish and trivial, but the fact is, problem of global warming, poverty, pollution... all this originates from our wasting resources and our reckless behavior...

I trust a normal human mind to be able to recognize that something is being wasted when it is being wasted, but we don't seem to care.
To be honest, making communities, going for rallies and discussing statistics and sciences don't always help, and sometimes become a waste of time, when some people are too stubborn or dumb to understand. So keeping it simple is better, i.e., the idea of not wasting things around.
That is why, the thing that we really need is self-awareness and knowing when we are being wasteful and stopping ourselves from doing so.

The best part is that everyone can help. A normal human mind always knows when wastage is being done, so we should shrug off our laziness and stop wasting (which doesn't mean using them
sparingly!) resources. Stopping wastage would promote hygiene and cleanliness.
Wastage is done for a lot of reasons, some of which are out of our control, for eg: industrial wastes, or wastage to earn profits etc. but if everyone stops wasting in his/her life, then I don't think anyone need be concerned what's happening outside their lives and EARTH would be able to bear our burden, even if we double in number.

Thank You for patiently reading it. :)

P.S. - I really respect the people who do the cleaning stuff... I can bet you it's the most difficult thing to do, to clean something that others can't tolerate the presence of, but wouldn't even get rid of, while it gets accumulated... :)
P.S. - I'm not a Jerk ! I'm trying to paint the correct picture, which people ignore and think,
"chalta hai" ! But I guess, NATURE doesn't think so. :)
P.S. - Ignore the informal slang language... that was just for fun :)
P.S. - Hyderabad Bloggers meet was on 1st March... had a good time.

"To be honest, making communities, going for rallies and discussing statistics and sciences won't help, it's a waste of time... it's better to watch TV or hang out with friends...
I dont agree. Such things are done so that people start realizing about it. Only when you know the gravity of the situation will people start thinking about it.
Meanwhile watching TV only increase global warming :D

Nice post!
Global warming is more of a moral problem and problem of omni-dimensional understanding.
Global warming is due to Exploitation of nature. Exploitation of nature is due to Consumerism. Consumerism is due to lack of understanding in every dimension of mu living. Every dimension includes self, family, society and nature.
When I do not feel prosperous or I feel that I "lack", I exploit. Exploitation leads to corruption, opposition, struggle and ultimately the war.
Unless I feel prosperous I can not stop exploiting the nature. To understand prosperity we need knowledge.
By decreasing wastage we can just delay the extremes of global warming but I can not permanently eradicate them, because problem of Global Warming is not where we feel it is. It is somewhere else.
Making communities, rallies etc, or decreasing wastage do help but not permanently. There is a need for a permanent solution.
Permanent solution is omni-dimensional understanding in every individual, which will lead to feeling of prosperity in every family, which will lead to fearlessness in society, which will lead to co-existence in nature.

@Karan: Maybe I wasn't clear enough in what I said. What I meant was that after all the awareness efforts taken by a small group of people, the situation doesn't change much. Many of the things that we do which should be lessened/stopped can't be lessened/stopped!
What I also meant was that the regular advices and measures which are spread during rallies/discussions or through media, are not enough. "Wastage" is the root cause... we focus on partial solution, not the complete one!

@Karan: And yeah, I'm editing my post for making my point clear and avoid confusion... thanks for pointing it out! :)
