My compositions posted here are likely meaningless if the hope is to have the powers that be – to hear my most reasonable [and true] notion and declaration; instead, maybe one day history will judge myself, and other thoughtful folks, to have been on the right side of thinking [in regard to understanding, looking forward, and planning when considering Climate Change.
Climate Change is real.
[However] Climate Change is not driven by man [although our actions do contribute to polluting our air, water, and soil]. We ought be more concerned with our polluting EVERYTHING with our plastics and petro chemicals. Further, let’s stop raping the earth and find better ways of sustaining the lifestyles so many seem to embrace. THAT is another story though.
This is about our need to PLAN for Climate Change, and Water Levels Rising … because there is no stopping it; and, it will effect major civilian populations around the world.
It seems many areas of land were developed in ways that were/are [mistakenly] considered ‘permanent’; … however, along shorelines, coastlines, in basins, and low lying areas … these areas, and many others [in my opinion] ought never have been considered permanent.
We tend to believe our cities, our buildings, our communities – even in these questionable areas and times – are indestructible; in truth, they are neither permanent nor indestructible.
Oceans and climate change … in any decade or century or millennia – can (and soon) will claim many areas around the world and logic, even wisdom, suggests – these are the decades, the century – we will see such change in these areas – [making them much more difficult, if not impossible, to remain habitable].
The earth lives, it changes, and it too, has cycles. Cycles of heating and cooling is one of them – be it that the cycles and events develop slowly as the world ‘turns’ [as the natural result of time] or by catastrophic events – like a heavenly body impacting the earth… the earth, it’s climate, its weather patterns, its geological processes … ‘change’ – in the most natural of ways.
In the past, mostly we adapted; today, we have the organization to PLAN for the changes because they are happening and there is no sense in denying the facts.
(And separately), but ‘Man’ is not to (primarily) driving it.
I’m Just Sayin’ … .
