Whew! We survived the Rapture back in May, only to learn that the date has been moved to October. Then theres the end of civilization that the Mayan calendar shows for December 2012. Truth is, no one really knows for sure except the Creator. However, Id like to enter my guess for sometime in the next 30 years.
The wacky climate-change skeptics still claim that CO2 levels have nothing to do with the health of our earth, and they laud the benefits of CO2 to back their claims. I would like them to tell me how long a person could survive in a room filled with nothing but CO2. It would kill them in pretty short order, yet they still cling to their beliefs. Like the 400-lb. fat person stuffing himself with candy bars, potato chips and pot, they live in denial. Its too bad. They watch the corporate TV ads about clean coal and green nuclear and buy that malarkey hook, line and sinker. They arent a bit concerned about the worlds drinking water as corporations push for unregulated gas fracking. They scream for more offshore drilling and give no thought as to why the fishermen are harvesting less and less seafood from our oceans.
I am so glad I was taught the respect and care for the world where we experience our earth walk. I think that sustainability classes should have been mandatory for everyone through their childhood years. Maybe its already too late. Maybe theres not enough time left to develop a sustainable world, but is that any reason to excrete in our own nest? Or havent you noticed what is happening?
