I keep hearing the refrain to explain why more isn’t being done in regards to the climate crisis - “its just not time, people are not ready to deal with it.” That’s true it isn’t time, its way past time and now we have an emergency on our hands.
If we hope to salvage enough of the ground we’ve lost to ever even hope for a livable planet in the near future we had better move this concern to front and center of our lives.
The political apparatus at every level from city, state to federal is dragging its feet on creating actions that address what is already transpiring. What more has to happen to get things moving more rapidly?
The world is literally on fire!
Many climate activists, including myself, are suffering from burnout from having rung the alarm year after year only to get a cool response and the warning, “better not alarm or scare people.”
Well, guess what? We should be darn scared at what is taking place before our eyes and even more scared at what isn’t happening - like people not taking notice and not acting effectively to combat the crisis.
Get going people and shake things up.
Find and elect officials that care because the ones we have now are not doing nearly enough to save the day. We are in serious trouble and need to act that way because the denial of the facts are not going to save us.
