I watched a kids show this morning, and the theme was trash. It was a whole hour devoted to garbage in cyber space where these little fellows hung out. Then in the news I see someone has invented a Waste Shark to “eat” the trash in harbors.
Further reading in the New York Times has an article about our diminishing glaciers. Every week the PBS station does a story on the Antarctic ice shelves that are breaking off.
On YouTube, a music video warns that we have 12 more years of grace period before the planet heats up to the no return point.
So- the governments of the world have recognized that we are on the brink of destruction through our own fault.
It is not a natural cycle of warming and cooling due to “natural forces”.
We are to blame for our own demise, and our great grandchildren will know this.
How do we combat this?
First control the burning of fossil fuels, and stop polluting our oceans. We depend on sea life to support our life.
Short sighted people will still think it is not our job to do anything about this warming, as it would “destroy jobs” and give Big Government too much power and interference in our lives.
Global pollution and warming is a fact.
No matter how it got that way we should make the greatest efforts to save the planet from dying.
We are supposed to be celebrating the advent of a renewal as in a mythical resurrection from the dead, and the return of Spring.
It looks suspiciously like the God we honor and revere has declined to interfere in any matter on this planet.
In fact the holidays seem to be a signpost for terrorists to set off bombs and shoot up churches.
Maybe that is their God’s way of sending a wake up call?
I am wondering just how bad is it going to get before we make any real progress at controlling violence both to our bodies and the earth.
