This is my home. It is precious to me

 

While I am not an environmental extremist, I do believe that we must take responsibility for the damage we are causing our earth and to prevent a man-made global warning event. We have to change our way of thinking about how we use the resources we take from the earth and start pushing for change. We have to take the world back from the corporations that strip and plunder our natural resources and pollute our lands, waters, and air. We have to take responsibility for our own lives and our actions.

Think about it. NASA has been collaborating with scientists around the world for decades, doing research and gathering information of the climate and environmental changes our earth has been undergoing since around 1600’s, give or take.  These studies indicate that mankind is playing a dominant role in the accumulation of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, and that the rise of these gases has paralleled our own industrial growth and population growth for centuries. These studies also show that our earth has reached the point of no return; in other words, our earth cannot heal itself from the damage we have caused on its own. At least, not in the next hundred years. Greenhouse effects will continue to rise, and Earth could wind up dead and as inhospitable as the planet Venus where temperatures average around 870 degrees Fahrenheit.

My Home Earth

I made this to express my sentiment. If you like it, you are welcome to use it as long as you don’t use it to promote anti-environmental sentiment.

I think there is hope, however, despite my concerns. I think we have the ability to save our world from a runaway greenhouse effect.  We have brilliant scientists who are doing the research and we do have good ideas in the works.  I love some of the amazing technologies that we are using today to provide cleaner energy sources and eliminate pollution. And the word is getting out and people are getting educated. They are taking action to reduce waste and pollution in their communities and in their personal lives. And we are seeing some benefit to it. We are still a way off from cleaning up the mess we have made, but we are making progress. We just need to make more progress, and now!

Well, thank you for reading my rant. It tells me that you do care, and I appreciate that. If you are interested in more resources and information on the global warming and environment issues. please check back in a few days. I am working on gathering those resources now. In the meantime, here are good posts on global warming in the news.

Other Global Warming Resources

  • Union of Concerned Scientists on Global Warming – “The Union of Concerned Scientists puts rigorous, independent science to work to solve our planet’s most pressing problems. Joining with citizens across the country, we combine technical analysis and effective advocacy to create innovative, practical solutions for a healthy, safe, and sustainable future.”
  • National Geographics on Global Warming – “The current cycle of global warming is changing the rhythms of climate that all living things have come to rely upon. What will we do to slow this warming? How will we cope with the changes we’ve already set into motion? While we struggle to figure it all out, the face of the Earth as we know it—coasts, forests, farms, and snowcapped mountains—hangs in the balance.”
  • Natural Resources Defense Council on Global Warming – “NRDC is the nation’s most effective environmental action group, combining the grassroots power of 1.4 million members and online activists with the courtroom clout and expertise of more than 350 lawyers, scientists and other professionals.”
  • NOAA National Climatic Data Center on Global Warming – “One of the most vigorously debated topics on Earth is the issue of climate change, and the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) data centers are central to answering some of the most pressing global change questions that remain unresolved. The National Climatic Data Center contains the instrumental and paleoclimatic records that can precisely define the nature of climatic fluctuations at time scales of a century and longer.”
