Climate scientists are doing great work, trying to get ahead of some of the many problems we’re facing as the damage we’ve done to the Earth becomes more and more apparent.
The way rainfall is distributed around our planet is changing. And, as you might imagine, those changes will become more pronounced going forward.
It’s a bleak situation and the effects are being felt over large portions of the Earth.
The good news — if there is any — is that we have climate scientists who have their eyes on this, and so many other urgent issues arising out of our collective failure to care for our Planet.
The bad news is that there are still many citizens — and governments, sad to say — who don’t believe any of this is real. Or that it arises from human activity.
To have a look at a CBS News article from last week that shines a light on this bleak situation, just follow this link.

I am a man who strives to be compassionate and believes that the life and teachings of Jesus still show us how to live and how to treat others in the 21st Century.***I believe that the tide of ugliness coming from elected officials and so-called leaders of the evangelical churches is a tragedy and must be countered with a renewed emphasis on modeling the compassion, teaching and life of Jesus.***I also believe that we have failed miserably in our stewardship of the Earth, our common home, and that this is also a grave failure of our corporate will and must be addressed.***These two horrible trends--the abrogation of the clear teachings of Jesus to follow in his footsteps and our failings to care for the Earth and all its inhabitants--must be resisted, must be countered with clear teachings and committed actions.***That is the mission, the driving force, behind our movement.
