Climate Change.

Friday, February 14th, 2014

Is climate change happening? YES! Look out of the window. Is it our fault? I’m not so sure, don’t get me wrong, I know we’re a filthy species; we leave death, destruction and dirt wherever we go. Any excuse or reason to get humans to clean up their act has to be good but I think it’s typical human arrogance to assume we’re responsible. We seem to assume we have ‘inherited’ the Earth; it’s finished, it’s done, it’s a completed project… It isn’t. Climate change has always happened and always will. The Earth is constantly evolving and changing; the beautiful landscapes of Scotland were formed when Scotland was a volcano field. Immensely violent forces produced those stunning views. The breathtaking valleys of Wales weren’t all formed by erosion; most were formed when landmasses collided and the land literally corrugated. In 2011 a massive earthquake moved Japan by eight feet. Eventually Australia will collide with Asia. This stuff is happening and will continue long after our grubby species has gone. By all means recycle your rubbish and drive electric cars but don’t kid yourself that we run the world.
