Soon we may not have a planet to hate or debate one another on.
It appears climate change could be the toxic smoldering hill of ash humans die on if we do not change. Not even the Mile High City sky could escape Dixie’s toxic touch, as a hazardous haze invaded the air. Climate change is real, made worse by gender reveals, which aide Earth’s over heating zeal.
Humans are in have to mode, as in humans have to change. We are on the precipice of no return and we only have ourselves to blame. Apathy is not acceptable, and anger will not absolve us.
Humans won’t get another chance to course correct and choose a different path. The path is sure to be marred by our previous choices, yet if we do what we have to, it will be a path with life and mitigated strife.
Climate change is not a deity, it doesn’t require your belief. One may worship a political party, and perhaps a religion too. Neither a prayer nor a PAC will cure climate change, however if masses of people prioritize air over anger, and action over apathy, we could provide a livable planet to kids with breathable air, no child deserves this planetary inheritance.
Embers of burning egos are lights of caution in this fable of human frailties, fraught with fear and full of fabrication about the pandemic and pollution.
Humans have willfully changed the climate, we cannot now refuse to change ourselves – the change is connected, whether we want it to be or not. So, let’s change our impact on the planet…humans need the planet, not the other way around.
“In science it often happens that scientists say, ‘You know that’s a really good argument; my position is mistaken,’ and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn’t happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.” Carl Sagan
