One of the urgencies humanity is facing at the present time has to do the way we’re degrading our Planet. The Planet that is our common home.
There are so many indicators that Mother Earth is suffering. Suffering badly, truth be told.
One of those clear signs that this is happening is that it’s been unusually warm in Siberia this year. Scientists are now seeing temperatures that have never before been recorded north of the Arctic Circle.
It’s just one more piece of evidence. As though more were needed.
Stay engaged. Don’t let yourself slip into hopelessness and despair.
We’ve got to keep shining a bright light on the crises we’re facing on the environmental front.
We’ve got to learn all we can, stay engaged and put our hands to the work.
There are so many on the front lines–volunteers, laymen and professionals–engaged in this work, giving their all to make a difference.
We can support them by contributing our time, contributing financially and by refusing to let other priorities–as urgent as they are–keep us from addressing the singular problem that can render all of the others insignificant.
