I really *did* want to keep to a light theme this week, with blog posts about how things are slowly starting to swing Mother Earth's way, and with all the ways people around the world are trying to turn this Titanic of climate change around.
But then I got *this* (IPCC's climate report) in my email today (yes, I get distracted by emails, just like everyone else): and despite it being yet another dark, foreboding disaster whistle-call, I feel it necessary to bring it to your attention, dear reader.
Why? because if you're reading this blog, you care about the planet; you care about humankind's future existence. And this BBC article shows what steps countries -- not just as individual citizens -- need to take to stand with science and actually move on it before we obliterate ourselves...
Be prepared; the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's report is *not* a light read. But it, along with the BBC article, has the gravitas needed to motivate us, *if* we ever decide we want to stop being our own worst enemies... along with, of course, all the species surrounding us. Except maybe tardigrades. (More on them in the next post. Stay tuned!)
