Climate Change

Climate change is real. I won’t say that it’s here because it’s more of a process than a thing. We are undergoing that process. Humankind will have to adapt or go extinct. That’s why we have the weather we’ve been having all over the world. Did we cause it? Well, no, but I don’t think we have helped it. Can we stop it? I don’t know. I don’t even know if we should try to stop it. Nothing stays the same so why should our climate? It has changed before and it is a simple, natural phenomenon.
There are things we can do to mitigate its effects, though. We can look for alternate forms of energy. Some of us are doing that. Others just try to find more of the same sources. That’s causing issues, as some people hoard what they have. I’m not talking about the survivalists, individuals who fear the worst. I’m talking about nations. If it’s on their land, it’s their right. They should consider the future for their own people.
That said, I would say that they might find, if they cling to the past too tight that they will get left behind. New forms of energy are available. They are becoming more common, where they were once scientific oddities. Electric cars are on the road even now. There’s talk of powering those cars from the roadbed itself, which would be a boon. The air would be cleaner and we’d have a zillion toll roads, but that’s a price we must pay. We are a mobile society. I’m talking the US here.
Going back to the world. Can humans pull together and change as a group? Going by the news reports, I’d have to say no. so it will likely be everyone for himself or herself. Whether the human species will make it through this climatic change is debatable. Should we make it through? That’s a moral dilemma. We are not the nicest animals on the planet; then again, climate change is not a moral decider. It doesn’t care how good or bad we are. It will kill us if we don’t make the right changes or it can make us stronger if we do. It’s our choice. There’s no putting it off. Gather the facts. Make the choice. Change or die.
Humans have to adapt. We can’t cling to the old ways because things are changing. So what do you think? Should we cling to the past and try to stop climate change, something we might not be able to do? Or should we embrace the challenge and evolve to meet it. Change with the climate or die, that’s the choice we have to make. We stand on the threshold of the future. Our decision here will not only affect us. It will affect future generations. We must choose with wisdom.

About

I am not one who is comfortable talking about myself but here goes. I enjoy writing, family history, and reading. I decided to do this blog because I wanted to try something new. I decided to make it a weekly blog because I wasn't sure that I could keep up with a daily one, and monthly seemed like I was writing a magazine. I think I did ok with my choices. You'll notice that there are not a lot of graphics on my site. That's because there are graphics plastered everywhere on the Internet and those sites sometimes take forever to load. This blog is a place where you can kick back, relax and be ready to be amused. At least I hope I willbamuse you. This blog is on a variety of subjects from my ficitional cat agency, the FFL, which is monthly, to instructional blogs to editorials, which are my opinions only. I admit that I don't know everything and could be wrong -- I frequently am. Now, stop reading about me and read what I have to say!
