The World Watch website highlights eco-blogs that fall under four categories: climate and energy; environment and society; food and agriculture; and the state of our world.
The viability of a blogger is determined by the variety of sources and the knowledge of what biases they are advocating.
World Watch offers an international perspective on issues and often highlights other countries than the dominant west powers.
The site has an article about the Dominican Republic and its apparent hypocrisy regarding coal.
Although biases are not considered a crime in the context of global environmental protection, they can be seen as a problem.
This blog is to the credit of the author, who never assumes that the issue will be solved. They also use statistics to support their arguments.
Peter Sogaard Jorgensen, research assistant at the Center for Macro ecology, Evolution and Climate, University of Copenhagen, runs this blog.
His blog is primarily focused on environmental degradation statistics and the causes that cause them.
In one article, he examines the impact of a country’s GDP on its carbon dioxide emissions.
The majority of articles focus on the science behind emission changes and not the angry rhetoric directed at governments.
As with all writers, there are bound to be biases and conjectures, but in this case, I was happy to see that they were kept to a minimum.
It seems that man and nature are constantly at war.
The danger is coming as the nature slowly declines.
Blogs suggest that there are a lot of nature seminars and summits being held to discuss ways to reduce pollution, but that they haven’t been able find any solutions.
The year 2009 saw a significant drop in carbon emissions. However, 2010, on the other side, has maintained high levels of emissions (Jorgensen).
The use of fossil fuels does not appear to be decreasing.
Imports of fossil fuels hover around 85% (Konold).
While I believe that summits and policies may be helping society reduce pollution and support sustainability, it is not possible to sustain sustainability in the environment until there is a nature dualism.
My view is that individuals should embrace green consumption and support sustainability.
Many people have begun to believe that gold should be ethically mined and that they should buy gold to support workers.
When they travel to tropical lands, people forget about the poverty in their society.
It is up to each individual to determine and to understand the future for the next generation.
The government should be able to show the future they envision for the next generation.
It will be beneficial for society if the people understand the dangers ahead and understand the importance green consumption.
