The Heatwave in Europe

There’s a heatwave in Europe. 

I know, for most of us, that seems like something we don’t need to worry about. After all, we have plenty on our plates as it is. But we do need to think about this. The UK, for instance, is known for being cool and damp. It’s not today, my friends. It’s hot enough to kill people. 104 degrees F. That’s hot. And only 3% have air conditioning.

Our world is changing. It’s like watching a disaster movie. And that’s exactly what it is, a disaster. Huge waves in Hawaii, Miami threatened by rising water due to melting of glacier ice in the arctic and antarctic. Wildfires all over the world, caused by increased global temperatures. 

So why do politicians deny this is happening? Or downplay global warming by saying it’s a natural phenomena. It’s simple. Money. The big oil companies put millions of dollars into convincing politicians to stop legislation that can help our world survive, and to help convince people that what we do doesn’t matter.

It matters. Do some research. NASA has a link.https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?hspart=iba&hsimp=yhs-1&type=zopr_5056_CHW_US&p=nasa%20climate%20change&param1=RypDRDjp20T5Vc76fV

What do you think about global warming?

Do you have any ideas for ways for the average person to help?

Do you vote based on politicians’ views on the climate? Should you?

Until next time,
