So, when was the last time that it was almost 70º outside in January? I’m betting never. (And please do not correct me if I’m wrong.)
When was the last time the polar bears went extinct? Never.
When was the last time carbon dioxide levels were higher than ever?
Why, why, why can’t people realize that it IS HAPPENING?
Ok, so if I were a dinosaur and it was right before that meteor hit the earth, I’d be thinking, “Hey, cool, a light!” and then I’d die. I wouldn’t think any grim or intellectual thoughts right before I died, I would just be doing dinosaur things.
If I were a mammoth on top of a glacier that was melting, I wouldn’t be thinking about my inevitable death, I’d be thinking mammoth-like things, like not getting eaten.
Since I’m an intellectual human, however, I think about things. Perhaps too many things.
I want to live long enough to see my kids grow up in a non-polluted, non-warm world.
I want, I want, I want.
I want to live forever, and never die.
I want to dramatically decrease the impact we are making on our world.
But I fear any attempt to fix the mess we’re in will be too little, too late.
Why? I really don’t want to die.
I want to accomplish things in my life before something terrible happens.
I want to live, live, live.
That is all I ask.
That is all I will say.
Will you agree?
Will you join me?
