Believe It or Not!

Well, here we go… Climate change is not real.  Climate change is real.  Well, that settles it.  Now we can all relax and enjoy our lives and just go on and enjoy our lives like nothing we do affects anything else.  Well where is my free space?  I want to get my little circle (no I don’t) of space and cry “this is my space and you don’t have the right to pollute, or impose your environmental impact in my circle…” (I stole this from the college no free speech zones (silly)).

Do we have to really debate the harm we cause to our planet, warming, cooling at all?  Look to the droughts, deforestations, hunger, and increasing struggles. Our neighbors and friends are continually enduring and overcoming. Yet those that be look out for themselves and concern is for the almighty dollar, do not care for not only what brings them success and a great life. They are intelligent, and stupid to think wear and tear on anything, even the earth causes anything to not work as well over time.  And it will break down and eventually stop working for you.

Over 250,000 Animal Feeding Operations (AFO), where CAFO (Confined Animal Feeding Operations produce 250 million tons of animal waste annually (of the 500,000 million tons).  When appropriately applied to soil, it can fertilize crops and restore nutrients.  However the threats outweigh the benefits by posing threats of sickness, disease and death from the excess Ammonia, nitrogen, phosphorus, organic, solids, pathogens, and antibiotics and by the way, promote the development of harmful plants and organisms.

Think about this again.

  • We struggle, work to have a good home and food & have a basic good live
  • We push out the natural plant & animal life to grow a few non-nutritious plants
  • We centralize or regionalize the food stores where they are production processed
  • We add fillers (Soy oil, Palm oil, Corn fructose…) that our immune system fights
  • We increase our visits to the doctor
  • We wonder why more kids have peanut and other allergies
  • We increase our prescriptions for ever increasing ailments
  • We can’t find that local small town farm and fruit/vegetable stand
  • We don’t know our neighbor/s because the “community” is missing
  • The old get older and the young are given the opportunity to remember
  • Youth have less reason to stay in the small town
  • Small towns get smaller
  • Urban areas get bigger
  • Production foods increase
  • And then we struggle some more

Hopefully, all these above are opportunities for us to work in the local communities, in order to experience and reclaim what was good, before it is too late.  Go get involved today!
