As a member of the Save Energy Campaign, I raise money to develop alternative energy sources. I am concerned at how developing countries suffer as a result of larger polluters.

The drastic changes we are seeing now are definitely something we should take more seriously. I am not sure about collective action, but I think individuals can make a difference.
We don't have enough information to firmly establish whether global warming actually exists. The changes may be a natural pattern similar to that of the last Ice Age. If so, we can't stop it.
The scientific consensus is that we have reached a point of no return, we are no longer living in equilibrium with our planet. Governments need to make radical changes to policy.
I believe no one really cares enough to do anything about global warming and now it's too late. We can't reverse everything, but now we should be more active in tackling the problem.
We need to make fundamental changes to the way people live, but the world economy couldn't cope with the drastic action necessary to affect the pattern already in motion.
