Unhappy The Earth is what matters

It’s a real shame that this has all been so politicized and skewed. The earth really deserves better – as do the people on it.

The earth’s climate is changing. That is something that we do know.

What science doesn’t know is why.

All this wasted time over how much or if humans caused it – totally disrespectful to the earth and life and any sense of interconnectedness, in my opinion.

Does it matter why its happening when the tsunami hits and now toxic waste is in the ocean because one corporation or the other didn't want to build the nuclear power plant away from the coast?

Does it matter when the gulf is full of oil because the dikes were built “strong enough” but not “strong enough to withstand a storm we couldn’t imagine or didn’t want to believe could happen”?

Does it really matter?

One thing science knows is that more heat in the atmosphere changes the weather – we get extreme weather – tsunamis; tornadoes – this causes havoc and costs millions of dollars when a country is hit not to mention the devastation to human psyches or animal life.

Global warming really should be called climate change – pure and simple – it’s real, it’s here, get used to it – stop arguing about the why’s and stick in some infrastructure on a local or national level, who cares which – and use some common sense to protect people and the environment from the devastation these environmental changes will cause.

Now that’s a nice idea no matter what the catalyst!
