Click the picture below and watch the video clip from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. It shows members of the United States House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space And Technology posing ridiculous questions to a scientist concerning climate change. I don’t think it is funny at all – I think it is incredibly scaring. Because it makes me believe that our political systems are not capable of dealing with the crisis we are in.
Soon it will be too late to stop the global warming. The damage will become irreversible, and it will not matter what we do. What if it is already too late? May I be witnessing the beginning of the end of the era of the human race?
Even life in the oceans is now threatened by our greed and our ruthlessness. It really makes me sick.
What is there to do? I have decided to do as best I can, even if I expect to lose. I can support politicians and organisations that are fighting for a change. I blog and I write on Facebook and Twitter. I try to make changes to the way I live. I eat less meat. I choose ecologically produced food. I try to save energy. I try not to buy things that I do not need.
Because I love nature. The earth could have been a paradise – if it hadn’t been for the greed, the fear and the ignorance of humans.
