The Heat Is On

Everyone is talking about global warming.  Pretty hard to ignore really when there’s a massive heat wave breaking all kinds of records in Australia and a freeze in the UK that is dumping snow in a usually snowless London.  You can’t really ignore global warming now… it’s here and it’s happening.  Question is, what are we doing about it?

I think there are enough blogs out there that discuss philosophically and literally what needs to be done.  Sometimes though, it’s the smallest thing that can make you realise just what the impact is likely to be in the future.  For me, it was a couple of photos below… the fact that humans are destroying this planet and while we go on about the impact on future generations (of humans), let’s just stop for a minute and think about all the other living things on this globe that don’t really get a say in how their planet is treated.

I just received this on an email…. 

It has been so hot in South Australia for over a week… 40+ degrees Celsius everyday, very dry also.

A guy lives at Maude.   His wife sent him these photos of a little Koala which just walked into the back porch looking for a bit of heat relief.    She filled up a bucket and this is what happened!

Speaks volumes really, doesn’t it?  It’s cute yes, but also horrifying that an animal that would usually steer clear of humans is reaching out to them now for help to cope in these extreme conditions.

Makes me feel sick to think of all the carbon energy that was used in the last week with airconditioners…..
