CNN broadcast of Al Gore’s town hall on the climate was excellent. Great information and an elevated discussion that contained many conceptual nuggets of gold.
Gore spoke about bright economic futures in the solar industry. Wind turbine maintenance and manufacturing jobs seem very promising.
Spiritual issues were brought up. The connection between helping the Earth vs helping ourselves. Indirectly funding the decline of an environment in which people can live, breath fresh air, drink clean natural water.
A warmer environment benefits microbes, mosquitos, and other biology adverse to people. Viral mutations that undermine people in the womb, adult, and all in between. All amplified by climate change.
The good news is simply changing habits, what we consume, and how we dispose of consumables can reverse the dangers. Can it be done? Does the discipline and embrace of different habits exist?
