After reading the article on the Amazon Rain Forest, I was intrigued by the discussion of our Socratic seminar. Prior to the discussion, I was one-sided with my original thoughts. However, after hearing the others talk and discuss the view points, many of them made sense in the way they were described.
My main concern is where do we as humans stop relying on our non-renewable fossil fuels and truly focus on long-range plans. We all know the fossil fuels will ultimately run out or we will have stripped everything available. Then what?
I fear we currently only consider the quick fix for the immediate solution on our fuel dependency that is convenient now but none of the “decision makers” seem to be willing to fully commit to looking at other solutions.
I often wonder and worry what will our children will have?
