But, we do have among us certain people who have studied the recorded information, have translated that information into meaningful instruction and who have an understanding of our relationship to the climate. They have been warning us for the last few decades.
Against those warnings, we have also among us those who have made a lot of money and continue to make a lot of money by abusing the environment. At one time, we could turn a blind eye to that abuse because we didn't understand the implications. Today, those on the side of making more money from environmental abuse seek to confuse us regarding the implications of climate change and global warming.
In this new year let's resolve to work toward solving our two biggest problems as human beings living on planet Earth. Those problems are war and global warming.
To make improvements in the issues surrouinding war, it would seem, at this stage in human development, with our knowledge of science and history, that we could simply deal with the realities facing us and work things out without attacking each other. Or, we could continue to attack each other. The choice seems that simple. And, with what we now know, the real question becomes, 'just how stupid are we as a species?'
Climate change requires a lot more of us. History is not an ally regarding this issue. We as humans have no historical record to help us. The geological record doesn't seem 'personal' enough and appears so far removed from us that it becomes meaningless.
Science is united in claiming that our human activities as we make more money are at the root of global warming. Science is united in predicting the outcomes involved with additional global warming.
Let us all together resolve to make significant progress against the two issues that threaten us the most, global warming and war. Let us make this the year in which we 'turn the corner' regarding the future of human life on this planet.
If we wait until the inevitable ocurrs, there may be no turning back. Or, we can make this the year for real progress. It is not yet too late, and that's the truth !!!
