So how did we humans kill all the dinosaurs? Or cause the ice age? How about continental drift? The climate has been changing from the beginning of time. It will continue to do so until the end of time. Meteorites has ploughed into us over the years. Huge volcanic activity has changed the face of the planet. As long as there is human habitation of this planet, we will have an effect. We may speed up the effects, but change will have happened irrespective. We're just passengers hitching a ride.The word "sad" doesn't even begin to cover it. And I'm more angered than sadden by these images and what's going on down under. Why? Because it's blatantly evident that this is "man made" disaster and yet people in high places deny it only because of one thing: money. Well, scratch that. Two things: money and power. Everything else is irrelevant to them. Global warming or climate crisis doesn't bond well with their interests so it's easier to deny the facts.
PS -I am in no way condoning greed, wastefulness or or purely destructive behavior. Good housekeeping makes it a more pleasant place to be. Enjoy the ride
