What is the most important environmental cause?

If you could only support ONE environmental cause, what would it be, and why do you feel that is the biggest priority for you? Water pollution, climate change, landfills, deforestation, endangered species, etc...

Given the interconnectedness of it all, I know it's tough to pick one - but if you had to, or have, which is it?

  • If we don't get a hold of our greenhouse effect the climate will become more unstable, more extreme weather patterns. The CO2 emmissions from fossil fuels as well as deforestation are major contributions to the green house effect. Which in turn is a contributing factor for climate change. If our climate is not stable we can not sustain plant life and therefore our livestock and human food chain would be broken. Not to mention breathable air and potable water.

  • Deforestation...if we have no plants to produce oxygen we cannot breathe and if we have no forest animals/birds/insects/etc have no where to live.

  • To bring back the Victory Gardens. Basically to have everyone who can do small scale vegetable gardening, square foot gardening or container gardening. This would reduce the fuel needs to transport vegetables, reduce the use of pesticides on a commercial scale, with the addition of rain barrels, reduce the water usage from aquafirs and with composting enrich the earth without the need for heavy fertilizers that pollute our waterways. Excess produce, which there would be could be donated to food banks or directly to those we know who are in need.

  • I don't really have one. I help in little ways for each and every one I can. But really don't put one above the others. I think that they all go hand in hand. With the loss of trees comes cliamte change... it's a big endless circle and I see each little piece as just that. If we could cure one we would end all... But we can't. So I see them as equil. All in need. And all worthy causes!
