You Know That We’re In Trouble When…

Reports like these surface: 

It appears that the dire consequences of global warming are bearing down fast on our generation, in spite of the numerous efforts which have been set in place to step up action against practices which are bound to destruct the Earth.

The signs are there. The possibility of the complete melting of the Arctic ice cap as early as this year has compounded with the earlier reported issues of rice shortage / oil shortage / quirky weather patterns (floods in India during a dry season and vice versa; extremely hot summers in the US, just to name a few).

On the individual level, perhaps it is really time for us to listen, to leave our complacency and procrastination aside, and to get out of our comfort zones. And actually ‘go green’. The rising sea levels the melting Arctic ice is bound to result in will certainly cause catastrophic damages to the world, so what next?

At the rate things are going, perhaps it will not be so surprising after all if Nostradamus’ end-of-the-world prophecy in 2012 actually comes true.

    Good point there..

    Who knows; possibly endangerment or even extinction of certain breeds of polar bears? After all, they’re running out of habitat to lay claim to for survival.

    It just blows my mind………
    In this age, if it isn’t outside your front door, no one thinks it’s real. I mean you see EVERYTHING you could imagine on TV and we think that is real, but once you shut it off – it’s gone, forgotten. Talk about inconvenient truth.
