IT'S REAL... NOW WHAT DO WE DO?

Updated: 2 days ago



Global Warming, aka CLIMATE CRISIS, affects our entire environment.

Think about why 'nature' is special to each of us.

Many of us spend
time outdoors: we travel; we camp & hike; we swim & fish; we cook out.

WHAT DO YOU
LIKE TO DO?

But we are losing some of our outdoor places due to Climate Change. Floods have literally washed away parks, drought has dried up places, and fires have destroyed still others.

(Yosemite Valley, 2020)


Question: Why are these events happening?
Answer:
-Most people (scientists and laypeople)
believe that humans have upset the
balance of nature.

Question: Why should I care?
Answer:
-we risk losing more of our favorite outdoor places
- our food and water is jeopardized
-more people will die from extreme weather events
- more people will lose their homes, schools, businesses
- increasing numbers of species are becoming extinct
- it's most unfair to poor people.

Question: So what can I do about it?
Answer:
-financially support agencies who litigate polluters
-support individuals and groups in their efforts
-pick up trash whenever, wherever I find it
-gently remind others to do the same
- volunteer with others to take care of nature near me
-buy only products from renewable sources
-practice the 3 Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Even if we work just to keep nature safe for our enjoyment, there are many other important reasons for protecting our planet. More about that in later posts.
