I feel that this year we are experiencing a different planet to that which we are used to. There doesn’t appear to be any corner of the globe that in some way or other hasn’t been affected by unusual weather patterns. Flooding has been occurring year upon year and many places that were considered to be safe and untouched have had deep torrents rip through houses leaving thick sludge over floors and furnishings. Month after month of persistent rainfall has caused mud slides and rock slides. Whilst some have experienced being scorched crisp until the ground became like broken rock. We are being told that even the ice caps are melting with an increasing speed that is unknown in our history. Yet, how soon we put this aside and choose to forget when our own regions, our own circumstances are back to normal.
Perhaps, it is time to grow up – take responsibility – clean up our act – change what we are doing before this beautiful planet becomes an alien world and we no longer recognise any part of it.
