I think I have been given my answer to when this world will end as we know it.
We have been told that we have 12 years at the max to make drastic changes in how we manage our environment.
As you know, we will not do it, because no one wants to give up their cushy life style here in the US.
We refuse to quit buying new I-Phones each year, we refuse to adapt to biodegradable single use plastics, we refuse to even acknowledge that we have a problem.
So consequently, in 10 to 12 years, we will have crossed a threshold that we cannot reverse. Our children, our grandchildren, and our great grandchildren will pay the price. Disease will multiply and become resistant to all our manufactured drugs, thereby killing millions. Natural disasters will become worse each and every year. The elevator in our oceans is slowing down, due to fresh water melt and overheating. If that stops, our world dies, no food!
People buy millions of single use plastic bottles of water every day, and most of it goes into our oceans. And most of the water is filtered tap water. It's ridiculous!
I for one will not be here to see it, but my great grandson will, and his mother doesn't seem to understand that her decisions (or non-decisions) will help create this mess.
Mankind will eventually vanish from this Earth, but not until he has killed off everything that he can before he goes!
We have been taught from birth that consumerism is good, capitalism is good, until it runs amok. Greed will be the end of us.
What we do now will affect the remainder of our time on this planet, and I know for a fact we will not change before it is too late. Think about that for awhile and then do something about it, whatever it is will help.
May peace be with you and may you finally wake up, we don't have forever.
