Whatever the cause, our earth's climate is changing. No one can deny this as it affects every human on our small planet. But, people still try to.
I believe it's a problem of denial. People are in denial of the fact that, whether or not we've caused it, our planet's climate is changing. They
come up with ideas and solutions to keep our Earth the way it is. It is most definitely in our interest to reduce our pollution greatly, at the least
for our own health and the health of future generations. We need clean water, safe food, and highly efficient forms of energy if our species is to
survive and thrive. The problem is the rampant denial that we must adapt to our environment rather than change our environment. We must adapt.
Ice ages have come and gone. Glaciers melted in the north and slid down into the United States. They sheered off the top soil of what is now northern
Illinois. This top soil was pushed into southern Illinois and is the reason for hills, bluffs, and the abundance of soil that is perfect for farming.
This could only have happened if our Earth's environment had changed as it did.
People like how they live, from the warm air and sun all year round in Florida to the huge snowstorms in Minnesota. They have come to accept that this
is how things are and it is how they should be. They are resistant to change.
I know this may sound like a rambling thread. It's late and I need sleep. I just wanted to share my thoughts. I'd like to sum it all up with this:
If we aren't willing to evolve, adapt, and progress then we are doomed to fail. The world is changing and it's a challenge we all have to face.
I don't mean to paint a bleak picture of humanity, but this is how I see it.
