I’m going to show you two pictures of two places. You tell me in which place you’d rather walk or cycle. 1 or 2.
Is it number 1? With its rolling hills and thick luscious green grass? With its big blue skies and wonderful sunshine? Or number 2, where there is nothing? Well, my answer is number 1. And that brings me conveniently to this weeks topic:
WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE!!!!
Well, that is true. We are also all going to suffer greatly at the hands of anthropogenic climate change which will eventually bring upon the human race the karmic apocalypse it is long overdue. As a collective we are pushing the environmental features on which we as a species have evolved on and depend upon for survival to the edge. Some time soon we could all well face the consequences of our own recklessness. It will not be quick though. It will pull through the world population like a scouring pad on an old pan thick with grease, picking up a little more every time. The rich will last the longest. They will quarantine themselves away in literal bubbles. Will North Devon be the part of the world they will make their bubbles? Maybe, maybe not.
If we want to preserve North Devon and preserve this world we live in we need to do things to save the environment. I’m doing my bit by getting a wood pellet burner (I got a cheap supply of wood pellets from Liverpool Wood Pellets, they deliver!) and i’m using that to warm my house and heat my kids this winter. Because I care. Do you care? Do you actually care? Do you? Do you care? Well it is time to show it.
The world and the people of the world, both present and future, need you to care. It is time. Let us begin.
