i rarely feel the urge to run with the pack
this year BlogActionDay has climate change as the theme.
there's are several issues i feel are getting insufficient attention.
rainfall in Australia has been shifting in pattern
the mountainous regions are getting less rainfall
other areas are being burdened by excessive falls
over-zealous development plans are chewing up the last remaining
agricultural areas in South Australia
and outrageous irrigation practices will undoubtedly
destroy the world-famous Barossa wine region within 20 years.
if carbon were really the culprit in terms of climate change, we'd be leaving coal in the ground
and STOPPING the decimation of old growth forests NOW.
not chopping down trees would have to be the simplest way of ensuring that the carbon they contain remains stored in a stable fashion.
next time you buy toilet paper, read the fine print on the packet. harvested from forests?
use the recycled stuff
go plant trees
the world needs them.
