I read on the Internet where global climate change has increased the intensity of the storms and climate scientists are now seeing moisture thrown up 60,000 feet from these storms which is blowing holes in the ozone layer of our atmosphere. Extremely dangerous to our health. A reality that is inconvenient to those who think it is God's will. I think this God threw up his hands long ago and is now overseeing another planet.
I also read where climate change is causing more dangerous anomalies and "If global warming approaches 3°C by the end of the century, it is estimated that 21-52% of the species on Earth will be committed to extinction (3). " If you love watching your head explode over multiple graphs with bad news, read the above article from the Columbia University Earth Institute. If not, just take my word for it...we are in deep doo-doo.
I cannot watch TV because both Presidential candidates realize that negative ads are much better than actually focusing on solutions to problems. Of course, if Obama focuses on the accomplishments he made in spite of a constipated Congress, he is accused of bragging in dire times. And facts be damned.
The Internet is filled with discussions about schizophrenia and automatic weapons with neither side even bringing forth ideas of worth. Banning automatic weapons...really??
There is a very good chance that food next year will cost 5% more due to the global drought. Since I need food more than Television, I called Comcast and asked them to drop all my premium channels immediately and the sports package that my SOL added over a year ago. (He had to watch games while he visited!) I saved over $54.00 a month with that little move. You can close you mouth before you catch a fly.
On a lesser note, I planted sunflower seeds not once, but twice this summer, and lost 99% to deer, ground hogs, rabbits, and a tiny cutworm that I found at the bottom of one seedling tray. I gave up. No sunshiny yellow happy faces to improve my mood in the simmering days of summer.
Yes I could focus on all my many, many blessings...but right now I want to moan and groan...so shoot me.
