LONG TIME GONE
Somehow I stopped posting here but I'm back today - August 20, 2015. For some reason I've been reading books related to desertification and a sixth extinction on planet Earth. The descriptions are dire. The news is filled with Climate Change (is it or isn't it) (man-made or natural). It hurts to see how little heed is given to all this. It hurts to know there are people somewhere going without food while here in the US obesity is a problem. Water is becoming increasingly critical as drought leads to wildfires through much of California and even in Alaska - who'd a thought Alaska could burn like this!
There is some attention being given to Climate Change - great topic for politics - but will the attention lead to real action and will it be enough or in time?
