I read a headline today that Al Gore compared climate change denial to racism. On actually reading the story he did nothing of the sort, but meant that hopefully, one day… the climate change for/against won’t be a conversation we need to have, people will realise it is happening and WE have to do something about it, along with the silly idea of the earth having infinite resources we can keep pulling out of the ground… there isn’t anyone else in the universe (that we know of) that can clean this mess up.
I was having a chat with my wife yesterday and I asked her if she thought there was an increase in natural disasters or is it just that with news and information so readily available to us from every corner of the globe, we see more of what happens in the world everyday and there is no increase to the amount of terrible things happening… is it just the same as it was? We were both left very perplexed…
I’m pretty sure human beings have an adverse effected on the weather of our planet through climate change but I don’t go as far as to think it is signaling the end times as some very left-leaning environmentalists say, nor do I believe anything the climate change denialists have to put on the table either… the debate seems very “extreme” on both ends of the argument. And then you have the earthquakes which just happen because our little blue planet is made up of lots of plates all floating around on each other… stuff moves, things shake.
So today’s image… you’d think I’d have some awesome rationale about why and where and who and when but I just wanted to draw some sticks. 🙂
