Abstract: Everyone knows that we're living in the midst of an environmental crisis. Or really, one should say, many crises. There's too much carbon dioxide being created by our activities on the planet, too little water in many places, too much deforestation, species extinction, pollution, consumption, too many people, too little thought given to the future. Too much, too little, too many. That about sums up the situation today for both humans and numerous other life forms that depend on us for habitat and survival. The problems seem overwhelming; but we must never give in to discouragement or evasiveness, especially when the stakes are so high. If you ask yourself, 'What can I do about it all?' your response is likely to be directed toward saving water and electricity, driving a more efficient car, recycling, donating to environmental protection organisations, and the like.
