For this weeks journal entry I was asked to evaluate my activities and the affect they have on the environment. Some of the things I do on a typical day have a big impact on the environment. For example I consume meat, ride the bus, use plenty of electricity( laptop, T.V., printer, alarm clock, video game, etc.) However, I believe being a typical American you must and will use the earth resources careless because it is the American Dream. For instances this very assignment has to be done on the internet which has an affect on the resources of earth.
The second part of this prompt, I was also asked if possible would I be willing to alter my life style in order to save the environment. Many claim that they would change their life routine in order to save the earth, but were would you start? In a society that demands so much the tasks seems impossible. For example if I stop eating meat, that means I will have to look for a more EXPENSIVE alternative (SOY) which would still use the earth natural resources. Personal changing to me seems purposeless one because not every is willing to make a change so why try. (And don't give me that if everyone jumped of the bridge speech, because its the truth.) Second I don't use as much energy as a normal person. I ride the bus and stay active instead of being a couch potato.
