Your Move …

This was a recent post on Facebook. It’s short but oh-so-powerful! Couldn’t resist sharing.

Hi, Conservatives of Middle America–

I’m sorry to be the one to have to tell you this, but if you keep voting for politicians who are content to let the planet die, the coasts will keep burning and flooding, and all us liberal coastal elites will be packing up our gay agendas, vegan cookbooks, and evolution-based science curriculums in our Priuses and moving DIRECTLY into your neighborhoods and voting precincts.

Your move, assholes.

Climate Change Wakeup Call

Another article I came across that I feel needs sharing …

The Future Has Arrived.
These explosive fires are our climate change wakeup call

Too much of the western United States is on fire, and many areas not suffering directly from fire are enveloped in choking, acrid smoke.

Sidenote: The US is set to exit the Paris climate agreement on November 4, 2020.

Plastics and Recycling

EXCELLENT article (with images) related to recycling.

Plastics: What’s recyclable, what becomes trash — and why

Where I live, we can no longer put any kind of plastic in the recycle bin … only cans and cardboard boxes. We do take our soft drink cans and bottles to a local recycle center, use cloth bags for grocery shopping, and ask for paper at other retailers. But there’s still SO MUCH that we must toss in the regular trash.

One can’t help but wonder where all this is going to end up. We worry about climate change, but the plastics may take over the planet long before the weather does.

*Sigh* Human innovation may be the death of us all.
