هنا When we hear about climate change are we actually listening?
هذا المشنور Our selfishness could mean that the world will be a very different place for our children’s children.
انتقل إلى هذا الموقع How many times do we have to be told that we are destroying our world, asthma what will it take for us to act, sale not in the future but act now ? Maybe the lights going out or not being able to use our cars as there will be no fuel.
مدونتي At the United Nations climate change summit , medic the president of the Maldives appealed for help, as he has done for the last 20 years, he said, “We stand here and tell you just how bad things are. We warn you that unless you act quickly and decisively, our homeland and others like it will disappear under the rising sea, before the end of the century, but it falls on deaf ears.”
راجع هنا I watched an item on the news a while ago, that showed how desperate things have become. Men, women and children in Bangladesh were building mud dikes with their bare hands in a vain attempt to stop the ever encroaching seawater flooding their village, it happens every time the tide comes in, seawater destroys crops and prevents reuse of the soil, so these millions of people will have to be re-housed somewhere.

If we continue to carry on as we are, there will be no future for our grandchildren, certainly not a future we would desire for them.

Never going without, if things got a bit tough the state would prop us up. Not any more.
Our children had everything, never went without, as they became adults they never saved and waited for anything, they just went ahead and bought whatever it was they wanted, most likely with a piece of plastic, not real money. They never really owned anything. They are now spending their hard earned cash trying to play catch up, being the consumer and forever in debt.
But what about their children, our grandchildren, what is going to be left for them?
It seems likely that they will be faced with power cuts, scarcity of some foodstuffs, shortage of fuel/oil, and a desperate struggle for living space.
A very different world indeed.
We have to stop the deforestation of areas, stop hoovering up all the fish from our seas, the UN say that in 40 years the seas will be empty, we need to look at population and make some very difficult decisions.
All countries need to research alternatives including fusion power.
The government produced a storybook for children on the subject of climate change, was it hard hitting enough? I am not sure.
I finish with these words for you to consider,
“Gran, what are اذهب الى هنا you doing to stop this happening?”
