GLOBAL WARMING - FACT OR FACT?





The world seems a bit topsy-turvy. Fires, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, and political posturing that sounds more like kindergarten bullies except that nuclear weapons are in the mix.

  My life too is filled with chaos, even though I've not suffered any of the catastrophic natural disasters mentioned. In the midst of it I'm struggling to write, even the basic. This blog is no exception.
  I wanted to discuss the topic of global warming, to keep in line with my story, Ever-Ton, in the IWSG anthology, Parallels: Felix Was Here. Instead, my listing of blog sites that touch on the topic are all I've got to offer. A copout? Maybe. If so, my apology.

The catastrophic storms and incessant heat that hit this year, has made the impact of global warming all too real. Unless, you prefer to think it's all part of earth's aging. A normal change, as changes go.
Or maybe you're of a mind that what we humans have done with our time on earth has sped up the process. Whichever camp you're in. Current events do make one stop and wonder.
If you are suffering due to excessive water, heat, or smoke? Or your life has upended in other ways? Please know you aren't alone. My wish is for a speedy solution to all our problems and less chaos now and in the future.
In the meantime, if you've a mind to ponder the situation. Consider these articles. And please offer your own argument, article, or words of wisdom or advice.
Take care my friends!

  1. I think it's a combination of nature and man affecting the world.
    The seahorse photo was sad.

    1. We are doing our best to tear it apart. And the damage goes on!

  2. Like Alex, I believe climate change is a combination of nature and man. We're not doing the Earth any favors by trashing our home.

    1. Nature does seem to be replying to our abuse!

  3. There are just as many facts pointing to it being natural, so I don't think it's all us but a combination.

  4. We had horrendous forest fires throughout BC, Canada this year. It was devastating. I have faith in Mother Earth, tho. I think she is capable of undermining what we so carelessly put her through. At least, I hope so. Another reason I have always believed in doing my part to save her for the generation that follows. I hope they'll be more careful than this generation.

    1. It does seem that Mother Nature is rebelling against our failed stewardship, but while we may disappear, Mother Earth will survive long after for sure! Thanks, Joylene!

  5. With so many disasters it's hard for me to understand why anyone denies global warming exists, and that it's taking it's toll and that we need to do things differently. I'm really troubled that we seem to be going the opposite direction with this administration of deniers.

    Thanks for the visit. Sadly, I've had many friends near the fires, others where the hurricanes have hit, others ok from the wind, but trouble with the flooding.
