And here is some more Good News ~~~~~~
A follower of my blog once asked me to write about the possibility of world peace. I believe it is possible and I believe that the issue of climate change will be the vehicle that ushers us into an era of peace.
We must work together as humans to preserve the environment that allows us to survive on the earth. This goal should surpass all others. It must take precedence over political, religious, national, and cultural differences. We must unite to save ourselves.
The task for all humans who are living on earth during this period of change is to renounce violence and division so that we can slow the pace of global warning and create sustainable systems of adaptation that will enable humans everywhere to thrive.
Our biggest challenge may be our biggest blessing.
Slowing the pace of global warming provides us with the incredible opportunity to work together in peace as inhabitants of the same amazing planet….the planet that provides us all with sustenance; that gives all of us immeasurable beauty to behold on a daily basis; that supports over 7 billion people; that became your home, your only real home, the day you were born. Even after you die, your body will eventually return to the earth and become part of this planet. You are part of it and it is part of you.
And, even though, there are so many things that confuse us about what it means to be humans living on Mother Earth together, we are part of each other.
We are inextricably tied, one to another, each of us to all of us, because we share the Earth as our home.
Our task lies shining before us – save the ecosystem that sustains us all. People from every country, every village, every tribe, every family – each one, and every one, we all have a part to play in working together to save our home. We can not wait. The time is now.
