I’m too full of anger, despair, fear, and frustration to write anything at present.
The planet burns. We do nothing.
This image is from https://showyourstripes.info/ and shows Australia’s warming, one stripe per year from 1901-2018, by the average temperature in that year. Blue is colder, red is warmer. The nearer to today it is, the redder it is. #showyourstripes
Why are we not in outright revolution? Human survival is at stake. Life itself on this small blue planet is at stake. Now. Climate change is happening and it is serious.
If I look in to people’s eyes and I don’t see fear, I know they don’t get it. If they understood – if you understood – you would be afraid, very afraid. And you would be right.
These are not tea leaves or tarot cards we’re reading, this is thousands upon thousands of scientists reporting that the natural world is falling apart because of our actions. And we are the natural world. We are falling apart.
We should be afraid. We need to change in the small window of time we have left, and we’re not. If we do not change, it’s over.
Be afraid. You should be.
