People cause their own disasters

Are we all trapped?<br>Are we all doomed?

Are we all trapped?
Are we all doomed?

We have major occurrences in the world and we often try to blame something or someone. We are the blame for more than half of the disturbances we fear are the end of time. In the Bible it speaks of people's own foolishness will cause destruction to the earth.

Coal companies not only pollute the air but take away the soil that has kept people from having disastrous storms such as tornadoes and flooding. We have tornadoes now because our mountainous region is slowly becoming flat land.

Coal companies are using the coal to sell for power. Their big equipment they use need diesel fuel and their exhaust is breathtaking. They destroy our ozone layer more than anything with all that exhaust.

Global warming is on my mind all the time because I have noticed the weather changes. It seems to me that summer starts sooner than usual. We have had drought more than I can remember. The icebergs are melting and animals are dying. The waters are rising and soon will cause major flooding for low lying countries.

We are going to be seeing a lot more of disastrous events in our lifetime. I just wonder if there will be a planet for my child to live on.

We have destroyed our loving God's creation. We are the cause for all the destruction. We have left our children nothing to look forward to.

I often wonder if things changed and laws took place to stop pollution, would it save it? I think it may last longer but not totally save it because you cannot take back the years of destruction and pollution we have caused.

I think our pollution probably has effected other planets too. It affects the inside of the planet. I think it could the outside too.

Our days are numbered but we have caused it all. From the beginning of time we have misbehaved. It is starting all over again.

Barry's Response - Revelation 19:20 goes like this: ...the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshipped his image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. (NIV)

Not my idea of a picnic. Hopefully not exactly our fate either.

Good one
by: Ken

Yeah, I strongly agree with your point. We always try to blame on others for what we do, even at times I do the same. I think its human nature. Concerning global warming issues, people are blaming industries but if you look closely we also contribute to it.

Barry's Response - Greatly!

I have had a few people tell me, when I'm cleaning up on a beach, that I'm fighting an endless battle.

To think like that, means you have already given up. You have become like many, just taking up space while doing nothing. I, myself, would rather go down fighting all the way, doing what is best for the planet, those who need my help and myself.

We will not know when the end is till the end is here, and in the meantime we all should all be doing the best that we can, to save the only place that we know for sure, our home,Earth.

We deal with the now, because that is all we have, one day at a time. We, in our own little way, reach out. We can stencil storm water drains and clean up nearby water streams and lakes including their shorelines.

Where we live, we set examples. Do you realize that if you change 10 people on how they think, and they start setting examples, and if they also each change 10, it you see where I'm going with this? It could make an impact.

We can heal the world if we all get started now.
Settle in the past. Engage in the present and prepare for the future.

Don't ever forget, We all have the potential to change the world. One random act of kindness for the helpless at a time, could make the difference of a better life now and a better life (IF THERE IS AN AFTER.)

People Hear What We Say, But See What We Do, And Seeing Is Believing

So true! I also find that many people talk the talk and seldom walk the walk, If any of us want to save our Earth, we need to take an active part without waiting for our Neighbors. By setting examples ourselves, one can start impacting others by what I call Waster-Sizing. It helps both you and the environment.

Promote care and cleanliness. Many, like children, have no idea where our storm drains go for instance. Seldom is this being taught in schools, so we all need to become teachers to those that need it by talking and by doing the things we want them to model.

If you leave the world a better place and remember the 3 R's, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, you start setting that needed example. Here are more examples: when you shop bring your own bag, if you smoke, keep your butts to yourself and out of the gutter. You can use a water bottle in the car with a little water to put your butts in, with no smell, no fire and no dangers to others.

Pack it in? Pack it out. Every "Litter" Bit Hurts. We who care, need to become teachers. It is up to US. Thank you for the soapbox.

Do you have concerns about air pollution in your area??

Perhaps modelling air pollution will provide the answers to your question.

That is what I do on a full-time basis.  Find out if it is necessary for your project.
