I appreciate the world around me. I always try to save what we got from our ancestors and protect them to give it to our future generation. I will always remember “everything is beautiful in some way”. I clicked this picture on a stormy day. it was freezing cold but I enjoyed it a lot. in this picture I can see how beautiful are the waves produced in water with the flow of wind, but I also realize that the tree beside me is so sad and crying. They are struggling because of us.
The snow in this picture is melting so fast my sons had to hold the snowman together so I could get them a picture. That’s how I feel we’re “tackling” climate change: holding it together, looking for the upside. You need hope to inspire action, but if you fail to plan that action – you’re planning to fail. Climate Change means seasons don’t act like they’re supposed to. So more snow-man snow days than our cold winter months used to give us means less food in the garden, better odds of a house insurance claim, more bugs invading and killing that wouldn’t survive an “old” winter. I’d feel better about our ability to thrive despite climate change if we were actively changing to accommodate our changing world rather than just trying to hold the old together.
I have started being mindful of serving only as much I can eat. We can always go for some more in the second helping if need be. With climate change arises the problem of food insecurity. Crops are failing because of unusual changes in temperature. Save food for the hungry.
The three days of summer camping at Fort William gave me a chance to get closer to the nature where I tried to eat less meat. This trip reminded me to live like a human being, rather than a citizen. When people live more like a human they can produce less emissions than before.
