SEVERE WEATHER, the impact of CLIMATE CHANGE, Time to face the facts!
Dear Earth Citizens:
It is a fact that in 2010 several regions of the world expereinced severe weather related events. These included Flash Floods, and widespread flooding in large parts of Asia and parts of Central Europe. These regions were also affected by heatwaves and drought in the Russian Federation, by mudslides in China and severe drought in Sub-Sahara Africa.
The build up of greenhouse gases in the earth’s atmosphere during the 20th century is the result of growing use of energy and expansion of the global economy. I understand that humanity needs to grow, find new technologies to make our lives more confortable, but we must do it in a responsible and sustainable manner.
It is well known fact that many scientists warned us that if the climate change crisis is left unchecked, we will see devastationg effects in coming years. We are currently seeing the impact. From what I am observing while watching the devastating impact of SANDY, in the news, it is my opinion that the cost of action on Climate Change is significantly lower thane the cost of inaction.
So today as we watch images of the devastating impacts of “SUPER STORM SANDY” and after we pray for the victims and families facing these difficult times, I hope you will understand that it is time for us to take the Climate Change Crisis seriously. Find a way to learn as much as you can from credible sources to help you take action to reduce the impact of this crisis and be prepared instead of reacting. Climate Change is now not in the future.
You might say what can I do? what can one person do? but if all of us “HUMANITY” take this crisis seriously, the action of the collective will make a diffrence.
Peace and Blessings,
