Happy Earth Day. David Attenborough in the incredible BBC Earth and Life series, helps us understand the effect that changing weather has on animals, oceans/lakes/rivers, and people and how that changes how we survive. Animals that depend on certain seasons and temperatures for mating, gathering food, and survival, are challenged when it becomes unpredictable. Not enough ice to migrate when walking, not enough oxygen in the water, Temperatures of water not suited to current underwater populations, and food not available where needed as it has changed its timetable as well.
The Derecha that struck the American midwest destroyed homes and property and killed off 43% of Corn and Soybean crops affecting both the economy and the food supply. Are we really so important that we can’t come to grips with our effect on our world? A bit of recycling is helpful but not the big solutions. Carbon emissions do most of the damage. So, on Earth Day another chance to RESTORE OUR EARTH ~ It’s up to you and me.
