Curbing global warming or adapting to it?

It pains me to hear that some people have given up on their efforts to curb global warming. They are now up to save humans once again by adapting to the changes brought about by our own doing.

Should we curb to save mother earth and moderate our way of living? Or adapt and focus more on the human race than mother earth?

  • Jun 20 2013: In either case we all will have to stop using un-needed, unnecessary, unwanted, useless things which do not affect quality of life and quality time. According to me there are thousands of such things in the world. But can we? In this world of so called progress,development, growth for very few, will we have courage not to be with the society or our peers? Can we walk alone? Once many start walking alone they will not be 'alone'! We are regressing and not progressing.
