Misty sea and sky, on the coast, this summer. I think we were staying in Wales, in Llandudno, before the fires across the world, before the yellow clouds of smoke obscured other peoples views. Before rainforest burnt in South America, or woods burning in Australia. People, animals, birds, need clean air to breathe, like the air at the coast. They need gentle breezes, or moderate winds, not storms that are getting faster, tornados that rip houses apart, hurricanes that drown landscapes, Tsunami and mega Cyclones. But we keep burning gas and electricity, chopping down forests.
The world’s scientists say we only have twelve years before we reach a tipping point where we won’t be able to stop global warming. Yesterday it was announced that Carbon Dioxide levels have risen again to something like 147% of what they were in pre industrial times. We knew about this in the 1970’s but no one did anything to resolve it….
Well this has got cheerful….
