This is now a misnomer, Climate Change is now the name. Why? There are individuals looking for any kind of excuse. There was record snow fall this year in parts of the country that no longer anticipate this type of weather. So they laugh at Global Warming, call it a sham. How is this for Global Warming, Vermont has been 40 to 60 degrees for most of March, there is no snow, was hardly any snow, and now my grass is turning green. This spring has sprung at least a month before anticipated. It is no longer even muddy, mud season be damned. You can’t help but enjoy the sun in Vermont, but it is with a heavy conscience, and still, still there are those who deny the climate crisis. I wish we could arrest those individuals for crimes against humanity.
There are suspicions, there are feelings, and yet it’s no time to panic. I don’t believe we will panic until the ball is rolling down the corridor pinging off the sides and you stand trapped and small. We must oppose the entrenched interests, climate change is not a dream, a fantasy, it is the bed wetting nightmare for children, young adults, the middle aged, but perhaps not the old. It is time to ready for the panic.
The amount of unnessecary waste I see on a daily basis is numbing. Recycling is a way to offset, but it is not a solution. Coffee cups, the doubled up cup with the lid, straw, sleeve, you name it and the consumer will use it, and then casually toss it away. If we can’t change our disposable habits, then we should be charged for our pollution.
