It's autumn and time to celebrate cider, pumpkins and Halloween fun. We love the merriment, but even with good things to enjoy, it's sobering to think how some people still believe global warming is a 'Chinese hoax.' We've just been through Harvey, Irma, Jose and Maria plus 2 giant quakes in Mexico in the last few weeks. And that's the tip of the iceberg coming our way. These 'hoax' folks would be best served to stop dressing up like ostriches, and realize that we're on the razor's edge. Nobody said humans were 100% responsible for ALL weather situations, but you can bet your bottom dollar the warming of ocean waters that spawn these monster storms IS in part attributable to the human condition. And it's the water temps that feed these hurricanes that make them ever more deadly.
We need to take responsibility for the planet we ALL share.
We need to stop pretending that someone else will clean up the mess we're creating, ourselves.
We need to take action, and NOW is almost already too late.
If you are a human on Earth, PLEASE show up and do what you can. See what you can do to help Mother Earth survive into the future. Little things count.
It's not ok to pass the buck to the next chump further down the line.
Pretty soon there will be no line.
