To see food piled so high at supermarkets when a significant part of the world is troubled and starving, this is hard for me to …. stomach.
The poor folk of Afghanistan and the Yemen, etc would indeed be sickened to witness such gluttony. My view of how the Yanks and the Brits pulled out of Afghanistan is its tantamount to a war crime.
I think all of society already knows web addiction is a real and present difficulty, so what do kids receive around now, an avalanche of laptops, tablets, i-phones, xbox and games. Oh dear!
I know of a couple of kids that their greatest gift would be to receive some quality time with an intelligent adult, but they’ll never receive that!
Those without friends or family of any sort find it difficult I’m sure, to wonder what the heck this annual ‘spendathon’ is all about?
Me…. I’d perhaps be better with one of my pet dogs from years ago, thereby able to enjoy being in the countryside, but thats all dead and gone literally. Photographs are a useful reminder how active we were, the wonderful places where we could really soak up being in nature, gain intimate knowledge. Luckily I’m quite work orientated again and increasingly see this as a means to counter the effects of old age. It doesn’t seem a good idea to retire people as we do, mine is more a hobby activity in it is light manual, provides satisfaction and self esteem. Luckily I can say until its the very end I’ll always have the need to be dextrous and to get things done. Luckily also my house is lined with books, so many immediately triggering memories and pleasant associations of knowledge and things revealed; likewise a not small garden filled mostly with things grown as cuttings, everywhere I turn in my life there is abundance and things to engender a lively mind.
Keen .... interested and don't like being fooled. Since I 'turned on' to climate change in Nov 2017 its instantly become all important to me.
So many aspects to consider, loss of sea ice, Arctic methane in its three forms (geological, frozen hydrate and microbial) insane (and deceptive) weather modification programmes, diatom loss (and algae and plankton) therefore loss of Pacific coral, Antarctic ice shelf set to begin collapsing, the methane time bomb, worldwide glacial melting, methane release from permafrost, global warming, Pacific contamination from Fukushima, Jet Stream disturbance, unstoppable feedback loops and the interconnectedness of natural forces and systems .... probable mass extinction etc etc.
I cannot see how there can be such a thing as 'climate change denial'.
I'm very tuned in to being outdoors, I've seen things few other people have ever seen or realised ie plants, animals, signs of our ancient ancestors; rocks, landscape, topography; the microscope, diatoms and algae. And of course the more I learn the greater my humility at how little I know.
Please realise though 2 or 3C sounds nothing it has triggered along with higher CO2 levels our weather systems to go into a self perpetuating feedback mode from a previous 'steady state' and this planets life-forms to be severely thrust into turmoil. Less ice means greater heat absorption, a black algae contributing, jet stream now slit in two and thrusting warm air and damp into the Arctic, These things are real and HAPPENING. Polar bears, the saddest of sights will soon only exist as memory, can you see as many bees in summer? We are losing Arctic and Antarctic ice, at the North Pole it is stupidly over-heated and now exists only as water, you cannot walk there, ie this is now and is now plain fact.
Food production will be vastly hindered, is already inoticeable, also the to be dreaded and increasing chemtrails hinder crop growth, the aluminium we know for fact promotes plant disease, hinders solar energy production and destroys ozone. Aluminium from chemtrails has destroyed waterborne entomology ie insect life, as well as I'm guessing diatoms and algae (and as not yet discussed coral reef destruction, the bryozoanss have lost their diatom partners) .... bees now battle with dementia from aluminium. One part say the lower part of the food chain cannot be taken away without all collapsing. Witness the much under-reported Pacific sea bird collapse of 2015. SAVVY UP - BE AWARE !!!
