Climate Change is Real

The Year 20/20 Clarity. The sharpness of vision. The quality or condition of being clear or easy to understand. The 50th Anniversary of Earth Day is April 22, 2020, and us Earthlings are not in any way closer, it seems, to recognizing climate change is happening right in front of our eyes. Icebergs that have never melted before are melting now. Polar bears are showing up in urban areas, and on city streets, because their tundra is melting, and in searching for and finding food, they must leave what’s left of their natural habitat to traverse city streets sneaking into backyards and trashing garbage cans. We, humans, are a pathetic race. Climate change is real. We have now witnessed snow in Houston, Birmingham, Alabama, and Miami. Chicago enjoyed a record high seventy-nine degrees in late March, a month that the average temperature reaches fifty degrees. Floods have consumed Nashville, the states of Mississippi and Kentucky. Tornadoes are appearing earlier each year it seems and bent on destroying Oklahoma, Missouri, and Kansas. Why do we celebrate the Earth? Why not? The Earth supplies our food, water, and shelter. Earth is the only place, at this time, we can call home. We celebrate Earth to raise public awareness about pollution and demonstrate support for environmental protection. The sun and moon rise and set on this great planet. Yes, I said it. This. Great. Planet. The big blue marble. Join Clean-Up Day. Clean-up of green spaces, urban landscapes, and waterways. Eat Less Meat. Take the Pesticide Pledge. Plant a Tree. Support Organizations that Protect Species and Habitats. Recycle; Reuse. Peace.
