Before It’s Too Late

It’s a cautionary tale I’m telling you. We are destroying our planet and leaving behind a scorched earth for the generations that follow us. Yet there is a large part of our society that is in denial, as if they are under some sort of hypnotic trance.

Don’t blame me. I’m just the messenger.

It’s time to come out of the corner and step into the center of the ring. This is literally a fight to the finish between those who wish to save our future and those big money interests who continue to pursue their own short-term, unenlightened self-interests.

We must act. Before it’s too late. If it’s not too late already.

    Well done, I watched a show on BBC yesterday about climate change, and the warnings scientists made. There were some leaked e mails which suggested they falsified the data, but they didn’t. He said two things would happen forest fires and the melting of the ice caps, which are both happening in our lifetime.

    Great take on the prompt Fandango. Sometimes I wonder what those idiots will do with their money when it all ends ☹️

    An effective write. It should be considered an emergency. But humans tend to dawdle. 🙂

    Yeah, I feel like I am in a terribly backwards area when we don’t even have curbside recycling yet!
