Climate change is back!
My wife recently tried to interest high school students in a free showing of the movie, the 11th hour. She went to 5 local schools with a total student population of well over a thousand. They were offered free tickets.
The movie was shown on two dates. Total attendence was 6 and 5 of those where from a Waldorf school that assigned the movie for credit and a required report on the movie. Truly incredible. But it reflects the general lack of interest in CC. And the same on my original post.
Many posts denied such a thing was happening or that if it was it wasn't caused my man. So here we are way behind much of the rest of the world. Germany for example has large numbers of solar panels. This is smart not only to help CC but to cut down on the damand for coal and oil.
Now if we had a government that was behind an effort to combat CC we might have the same thing here. Just imagine those billions on war in Iraq and Afghanistan turned to better use here at homw. Instead we have an Administration that sides with the oil, coal and auto companise and actually censors government scientists who try to warn about the dangers from CC.
So we are faced with first trying to educate people, a long road, and then convincing them that sacrifices are needed. Then doing it. Now if we could have elected Al Gore and saved the disasterous war in Iraq! He would have lead a real fight to face the reality of CC. Instead most people followed the media's example and made fun of him. Something that was even evident in comments in posts on my thread on CC.
I read a long article about drought in various parts of the world, which we have in parts of the US, the Southeast and Farwest. What was unusual about the article was the absence of any mention of the causes of this.
CC it seems is just an interesting phenomena that will go away in time. Before it bothers us to much.
