Thursday Theories – Dinosaurs vs Humans

Climate Change is a … HOT … topic! See what I did there.

Anyways, I saw something recently from a “I.T. Specialist” who said that it was

 it is absurd and arrogant to think that we, humans, are a threat to the planet AND that we can modify the weather. If we try to accomplish this we will only ensure our extinction.”

Well…I gave him a few actual facts, and I quote myself here…

“It’s absurd and arrogant to think that human beings play no part in changing the climate. While our ancestors have been around for about six million years, the modern form of humans only evolved about 200,000 years ago. Civilization as we know it is only about 6,000 years old, and industrialization started in the earnest only in the 1800s. Dinosaurs went extinct about 65 million years ago (at the end of the Cretaceous Period), after being on Earth for about 165 million years. The rate humans are going, we wont even survive half that time, maybe not even a quarter.”

200,000 vs 165 million … Even if you include our ancestors 6 million, is still less than a quarter of 165 million. By the math’s, one quarter of 165 million = 41 million, 2 hundred, 50 thousand…So yeah, 6 million, still isn’t near to a quarter.

I often sit and wonder how on earth, we are screwing up the planet so badly. Not only that, but too hear those climate deniers.

Maybe the animals are smarter.

It’s weird, right?

Maybe a little early for this subject, but here we go:

I just think it’s weird to be “Pro-Life” but be against or think against climate change. If you are so “for life” wouldn’t you want life on earth to be as clean as possible? All those “humans” you want to save against abortion, shouldn’t they have a clean and healthy earth to live in? You actually have no say in what other people do with their bodies, but you CAN do something to help the world a cleaner place to live for future human beings…That is being Pro-Life to me!

Weird random thought, I know

24 hours to Earth 2016

Just a little friendly reminder that in 24 hours exactly from now, it will be Earth Hour 2016. So how are you going to “celebrate” it? One of those most well known way to honour Earth Hour is to shut off all lights and all devices, and to sit in candle light. You can support it in your own way of course. As mentioned on the website it is best to use 100% beeswax and/or soy candles.

Earth Hour aims to encourage an interconnected global community to share the opportunities and challenges of creating a sustainable world. Below I have posted some links of sites and social media outlets, where you can take a look at some more information and see what you can do  to help.
