2016 - We Need to Preserve Our Past AND Our Future

"The Union of Concerned Scientists, a group of over two thousand scientists, has concluded that global warming is beyond dispute, and already changing our climate. The last 30 years have seen the warmest surface temperatures in recorded history, and the past several years have been among the warmest on record.

Scientists have concluded that human activity, primarily the burning of fossil fuels, is the major driving factor in global warming..."

Sadly, our leadership either does not care or is too stupid to realize they need to care. Either way, this is going to have to be a grassroots fight. We can do this if  we find ways to prove to the masses that the entire future of this planet depends upon it. Each one of us needs to reduce our carbon footprint.

In future posts, we will explore ways to preserve both our past and our future. We will offer interesting articles and tips on what each of us can do. By becoming more aware and making (in many cases) minor changes to our lifestyles we can live healthier lives while ensuring that our children and grandchildren have a future as well as an appreciation for the past.
