The paper provides the rationale for a proposal to consider the causes and implications of global warming. The paper reviews several environmental indicators which are only a few decades or years old that show how global warming is real and is already making its increasing presence felt by human beings living today. The paper then looks at several other sources which consider the role of lifestyle in global warming.

From the Paper:

"At this point in the history of our species, it has become essential to consider the very like and increasingly urgent consequences of our mistreatment of the environment, our destruction of the earth's natural bounties and our consumption of its resources. Within the scientific and public discussions, there is an unmistakable tone of pessimism about the coming ecological circumstances. The scenarios that are claimed in various discussions of global warming, or global climate change, suggest that without a dramatic change in the way we live and consume, humanity will face a very bleak environmental future."
