FINALLY, the climate crisis is spreading across the headlines like an unconfined forest fire. It’s long overdue. As the world snickered at such climate activists as former Vice-President Al Gore and teen Greta Thunberg, it’s slowly dawning on people that they were/are right. This isn’t a normal change in the climate but one that we’re responsible for creating. The ironic aspect of this crisis is that it’s a crisis for everyone except for political leaders, who could actually impact change. Will it become a crisis when more (beyond the current 735 million) face hunger due to droughts and storms decimating our food crops? Will it become a crisis when our oceans continue heating killing marine life, decimating another food source, and making it impossible for anyone to enjoy being at the beach? Will it become a crisis when more constituents cry out in frustration because they can’t get basic home insurance due to insurers discontinuing business? Will it become a crisis as more people die from extreme weather events – heating, snowfalls, flooding, tornados or hurricanes? It will be a crisis until politicians realize they no longer have a choice but to recognize, admit human involvement and actively create policy that starts to lessen the damage humans have already done to the planet. It will be a crisis until global leaders join forces to save our planet — from and for us! Go beyond the headlines…
