The issue seems to be that rainfall (snowcover) will be our saviour. It won't. As a very astute friend pointed out to me, "the lakes have to freeze before we see the levels increase". I thought," WTH does that have to do with anything?"
Well, here's what it has to do with anything. If the lakes don't freeze, the winter evaporation increases. This means that every year that the lakes don't freeze, they get a little smaller due to evaporation.
What we need to remember is the Gobi desert was once an inland sea.
Do we really need two or three (or more) cars per household? Do we need to drain the lakes so we can have pop and reverse osmosis
water or produce steel
Remember, you make these decisions, not the car or the soft drink companies.
You are the ones that can make the change.
Will this help? Who knows.
Maybe this is one of those cycles that the earth has been doing for a while without our help. All I know is that it can't hurt.
Drink clean water even if you have to filter it yourself without the aid of Pepsi or Coke (Aquafina, Dasanti ). Stop buying
it and they will stop producing it.
Walk FCS. We are the most obese generation ever (this isn't MacDonald's fault. You're the one asking for the Big Mac with fries and the supersized beverage. Take responsibility for yourself.). We don't need to drive for two blocks. If you need to do so for safety
, you need to rethink about where you live or talk to your congressperson and get some strategic help. This part of the equation is solvable.
I'm pretty sure that it isn't the boaters we need to convince of this but maybe we could help spread the word.
Is this the solution? Probably not. Can it hurt? No. Can we help? Yep. Can we help people get a little healthier? Yes.
Give it a go. The worsted that can happen it the neighbour you hate will stop talking to you (kind of a win/win from what I see)
