Climate… We Have 7 Years To Turn This Thing Around, And We Can Not Rely On Government Alone To Do It

Posted in Environment, Life, Writing with tags , , , , , , on September 30, 2020 by darkjade68

For America, the reality is this… In regards to Government, we’re likely to have a fight on our hands should Biden win

This will take time we do not have, but it is what it is

If Trump wins, that’s a whole other huge issue… Which will take even longer to deal with, and will likely push our Country and Planet further down the Rabbit Hole

The reality is, no matter what happens in Government, it’s not going to be enough to achieve what we need to achieve as a planet in regards to our Earth’s Climate

We, as a species, have to attack this issue ourselves above and beyond Government

We have to make changes, and we have to make them now

So many of the things a lot of us have heard about for at least the last 20 to 30 years or more are now on the table before us, with a 7 year ticking sound coming from the core of our existence

Don’t look away

Don’t shrug this off

Don’t wait for the Activists, or the Government to figure it out and fix it

It needs to be us

It needs to be now

We the ones who do, and have nothing but contribute to our Crisis hold the Majority in regards to numbers of us

Which means we have the greatest responsibility, and we have the greatest opportunity to have the greatest effect/impact

I’m not trying to shame those that have left these things unattended to as they focused 24/7 on their individual lives

I get it

But now, if we are to survive as a species, in addition to taking care of our individual lives and needs, we also need to put an effective amount of time, thought and effort into reversing what we’ve done to our home, and what we are still doing to our home

I have Recycled for 30 or so years (Only to recently find out the company that picks our stuff up, only actually recycles the things that they make money for doing)

I have been a Vegan for 7 years (Yes this has saved thousands of animals, but beyond the humane element, Animal Agriculture has a huge destructive impact on are planet)

But these things are not enough

There is much more that we can, and need to do

My girlfriend who is an Activist, and has been on the frontline of helping to reduce Animal Agriculture for the last 3 years, is now working for a B Corp Company

Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. … B Corps form a community of leaders and drive a global movement of people using business as a force for good.

We should all look to use B Corp companies for whatever products we can, as to support a ‘Sustainable’ existence on our/this planet

The greatest thing I took from last nights Presidential Debate, is we can’t wait around for our Government to improve, and reverse the reality that is upon us

Please don’t disregard this Post

We can do this

If not for those around you, then for your kids, or grandkids, or the kids and grandkids of others in the world who we have brought to this planet, and deserve a shot not to live in the shadows and devastation of what we have done here

Have hope, get involved

Peace

I turn 51 in a few days, so I’ve been around long enough to hear people around the world talk about Climate Change for at least 20 to 30 years.

And now the youth is hitting the streets, with over 4 Million World Wide showing up for Climate Change Marches around the world a couple days ago

The clearest thing about Climate Change, is it’s gone beyond the point where people are crying out for the need, it’s now hit a point where effects from our current Climate are starting to show up all over.

The View From Our Home Last Year Just Prior To Evacuating

From breaking Heat Records, to rampant moving Fires (Which I experienced myself last year, living in California… I couldn’t believe how quick the Fires moved)

And the list goes on

It’s a time where Environment and Climate really need to be at the for front of all of our minds, and until governments and all of us fully engage in reducing our Carbon Footprint Etc., I’d recommend figuring out what you can do to support companies that are better for our earth, and leaders who plan on being aggressive about trying to save ourselves.

Because we’re running out of time.

Thanks for listening, this is a Creative Writing Blog for the most part, but like I say, I feel the Earth and our Climate need to be at the for front of our thoughts, and more than that, our actions.
