More Deaths? No Thanks!

This morning I was reading an article in the economist about the link between pollution and premature death. According to people qualified to make such claims, a delayed response to global warming (which is advocated by corporations who want to make money from fossil fuels as long as possible and then sweep in with a 25th hour solution to make even more money) would be VERY costly in terms of human loss of life. If we continue to consume at our current rate, by 2030 the ozone pollution alone will result in four times more deaths! YOW!

Whoah! That's scary stuff!

If only more people would wake up out of their consumer bound lives and see what's really happening, then maybe there would be a chance.

At least we're doing what we can to spread the word :)
