“A greener, better, us.”
I am quite unfamiliar with the going green campaigns that have been going around. But to me, it sounds pretty interesting that we could possibly see ourselves living a better, cleaner society. For now, we only have photos that are two dimensional models of what possibly could be for the future. As you can see, the photo at the top of the page is an example of what could be for a city going green. And if you know anything about the geographical landscape of the globe, trees help protect us from carbon dioxide in the air. So when you think about going green it makes sense to green a lot of our lives in the future. But what has caused this phenomena in the recent years? Well, for starters, it has a lot to do with the industrialization in our global economy.
Over the past 100 years in the United States, America has engaged in the industrialized marketplace. We heavily relied on factories for decades coming out of the 1800’s. And now that we have entered this new tech space, we are also making adjustments to the lifestyles we lead. In the past no one really knew that the gases that we were taking into our bodies were toxic working in these
factories. We didn’t realize the other chemicals we were exposing ourselves to while we worked long hours. But now that we know more, we have had to ship jobs overseas; in addition it saves a lot of money. Jobs have been lost, but productivity is more efficient and goods are cheaper. Besides our health and a new industry for employment, what are other benefits of a green society?
Well, plant life is a lot more lush because we were killing them by tainting the air quality. Like I said prior, the industrialization created a lot of jobs and opportunities. But the problems weren’t just health issues, we were constantly pumping gases into the air, effecting the quality. With this new push for a green society, we have animals and plants that were once facing extinction, able to restore themselves on our planet. And what was once thought of as a planet where we destroyed everything in our wake for capital gain, we would become more conscious. And that consciousness will inevitably aid everyone; both humans, creatures, and plant life.
In the end, it’s a topic that I am still glancing at every now and then. But over time, I think that more and more, I can see myself delving into this area. Going green is still fairly new for us right now, but as time progress, it will catch on because it will ultimately aid in prolonging our lives on Earth.
