Not a happy, pie in the sky blog today, folks. This country (and world) is in serious trouble and it is happening faster than you think. The picture on the left is from a county in Illinois where over 90% of the counties in that state have been declared disaster areas due to the lack of rain. Scientists estimate that this is the worse drought America has seen in over 50 years. The impact will be immediate and long term. Food, fuel, other products will increase in cost and hit hardest those who are already having a tough time in this economy.

It is time to stop the senseless argument whether this is due to scientifically proved man-made climate change ot “just a cycle” that we’ll get through it. No we won’t. Demand that your local, state and federal government, and businesses and institutions stand-up and face the fact we all must work together to make it together. Now more than ever we need people to get very, very, serious about this and not chuckle when there is a snowstorm about “where’s the global warning now, ha ha”.
Get mad, get active, demand accountability from those who say they are leaders. There are related articles below that you’ll find helpful.
