Folks, this is real.

I would like to take a moment and say I am sorry to those that have been affected by Hurricane Ida and her remnants as she rips across the country. This has been devastating to learn the extent.

In the same moment I hear they are now evacuating more and more people in the California fires. If only we could use the much NEEDED water on the entire west coast. Between the drying up water spots from Colorado to New Mexico and these fire riddled areas.

This continues to prove to me that climate change is real folks. It doesn’t matter what President is in office or the verbage he/she speaks. It doesn’t matter which party they affiliate with. Its cold hard science that proves the climate change has everything to do with the growth of these problems. Take the politics out.

This isn’t just America either. It is everywhere.

Time to make sure we do our part. If anyone has any tips or sites to share about climate change and the things we can do please share.

❤❤

  1. It’s worrying to think these things could become even more frequent. The damage is immense. It’s hard for me to imagine even with seeing the horrifying videos and photos as I’m in the UK, but it seems like there’s a lot of crazy weather all over.
    To all those in affected areas, stay safe and we’ll be thinking of you.

    1. I really feel for the many bone-dry-vegetation areas planetwide uncontrollably burning. As a lifelong resident of southwestern B.C., the unprecedented heatwave here in late June, described by meteorologists as more of a ‘stalling heat dome’, left me feeling I could never again complain about the weather being too cold. …

      I find hope, however, mostly in environmentally conscious and active young people, especially those approaching or reaching voting age. In contrast, the dinosaur electorate who have been voting into high office consecutive mass-pollution promoting or complicit/complacent governments for decades are gradually dying and making way for voters who fully support a healthy Earth thus populace.

  2. Whether it is unprecedented wildfires due to unprecedented heat waves, ‘stalling’ hurricanes, Europe’s wettest/hottest year on record, off-the-chart poor-air advisories, an exodus of sea life due to warming waters, the mass deforestation and incineration of the Amazonian rainforest, record-breaking floods, single-use plastics clogging life-bearing waters, a B.C. (2019) midsummer’s snowfall, the gradually dying endangered whale species or geologically invasive/destructive fracking or a myriad of other categories of large-scale toxic pollutant emissions and dumps — to date there clearly has been inexcusably insufficient political courage and will to properly act upon the cause-and-effect of manmade global warming and climate change.

    Neo-liberal and conservative politicians everywhere appear overly preoccupied with vociferously criticizing one another for their relatively trivial politics and diverting attention away from some of the planet’s greatest polluters, where it should and needs to be sharply focused. Granted, it appears to be conservatives who don’t mind polluting the planet most liberally.

    Without doubt, mass addiction to fossil fuel products helps keep the average consumer quiet about the planet’s greatest polluter, lest they feel like and/or be publicly deemed hypocritical. It must be convenient for the industry. The industry and corporate-orientated governments can tell when a very large portion of the populace is too tired and worried about feeding/housing themselves or their family, and the devastation being left in COVID-19’s wake — all while on insufficient income — to criticize them for whatever environmental damage their policies cause/allow, particularly when not immediately observable. Indeed, I have not heard Greta’s name in the mainstream corporate news-media since Covid-19 hit.

    As individual consumers, far too many people still recklessly behave as though throwing non-biodegradable garbage down a dark chute, or pollutants emitted out of exhaust and drainage pipes, or spewed from sky-high jet engines and very tall smoke stacks — or even the largest contamination events — can somehow be safely absorbed into the air, sea, and land (i.e. out of sight, out of mind); like we’re inconsequentially dispensing of that waste into a black-hole singularity, in which it’s compressed into nothing.
