Our home is burning.
Fires range in the Amazon, life giving lung for our planet. They burn too in the northern lands, home of ice, tundra and polar bears. Record breaking heat waves in Europe and Asia kill the weak and vulnerable. The seas will rise, the coral reefs are dying, our powerful allies the mangrove swamps are casually cut down and out watersheds deforested. Our plastic garbage chokes us.
The people who seem to be taking this seriously are the very young, school aged children, rightly afraid for their future. Activists, some opposition politicians and a few governments in small progressive countries add their voices to those of the immense majority of scientists and climate change specialists. The crisis is upon us NOW, not in some politically comfortable future. WE MUST ACT NOW, systematically, radically, creatively, collectively and individually or we risk the crashing of our global civilization or even extinction.
The majority of our leaders are still playing at petty power politics as the storm of climate change gathers unstoppable strength. Shame on them and shame on us for allowing this suicidal use of their power.
Act now to save our home and give these young people and all living creatures the future they deserve.
