Have you not heard?
“Temperatures are going up. Springs are arriving earlier. Ice sheets are melting. Sea level is rising. The patterns of rainfall and drought are changing. Heat waves are getting worse, as is extreme precipitation. The oceans are acidifying.”
But people generally do not understand that the problem is urgent — that the fate of future generations (not necessarily that far in the future) is being determined by emission levels now.
Moreover, the average citizen tends to think there is more scientific debate about the basics than there really is.
“Nobody on this planet is going to be untouched by the impacts of climate change,”
“Throughout the 21st century, climate-change impacts are projected to slow down economic growth, make poverty reduction more difficult, further erode food security, and prolong existing and create new poverty traps, the latter particularly in urban areas and emerging hot spots of hunger,”
The world survives by way of an ecosystem and that system is the core of all living things. For many years now scientists have warned that our cavalier attitude toward preservation of the ecosystem will cause it to begin breaking down, however, their warnings often fell on deaf ears.
WHAT CAN BE DONE ABOUT IT NOW.
IT IS MY BELIEF THAT SINCE MAN STARTED TO OWN THINGS HIS GREED STARTED TO DESTROY THE VERY THINGS HE OWNED IN THE FIRST PLACE AT THE EXPENSE OF EARTHS NATURAL RESOURCES FOR SHORT TERM PROFIT.
EVERYTHING BECAME A COMMODITY TO BE SOLD. THE LESS OF IT THE MORE EXPENSIVE.
IT HAS TAKEN MILLENARY TO SEE THE REVERSE HAPPENING.
IF WE VALUE THE ESSENCE OF LIFE, WATER, CLEAN AIR, ENERGY AND FOOD THERE IS NO APP TO DOWNLOAD. WE MUST MAKE GREED PAY FOR IT. ( See previous blogs )
