Well it’s blog action day. As a good active Meezer, I will be writing a short post about the environment.
I wanted to do something positive, rather than decrying the state of the environment and how much there is to be done. There is a lot to be done. The best line in any work Al Gore has done on the environment, was when he said in Earth in the Balance, is that the book doesn’t go nearly far enough in what needs to be done.
We know there is much to do. We see it in our daily lives. We hear it on the news–even when they are trying to say that there is no climate change. It’s there. We do need to change. We often are waiting to see just how we need to change.
It may not sound like much, but consider how much we AREN’T doing. If we manage to find good stories of surprises and what comes back, think of what we could if we made changes?
While we have impacted the earth on a much larger scale, I know the earth can come back. We lived in the shadow of Mt. St. Helen’s for years. Watching the park come back after the eruption was a fascinating lesson in how tenacious life can be. Let’s make the changes so that our world can look more like a 25 years later shot on St. Helen’s rather than a just after.
Happy Meezer Monday to all as well!
