Climate Change – A Great Documentary and Current News

I am back because I feel strongly about this issue and want to spread the word as far as possible.

Rosana had recommended a documentary, which I saw yesterday.  I am speechless, really!  I knew, as many others, that climate change is real, but was not aware to what extent. This documentary is a great example of what one person can do – or better, try to do, only to be squashed by some countries – China is the biggest offender.  If the carbon emissions cannot come down to the safe limit of 350, this planet, as we know it, is doomed. And the culprits are the people.  Some are still blind.  When I commented on the fact that some years ago it snowed in Buenos Aires in July 2007 – the first since 1918 – someone asked me  “Where is this ‘global warming’ they are talking about?”  It’s “climate change”, you ignorant people, and if we don’t stop it now it will be too late for your grandchildren. It may not happen that soon, but it will eventually.

If you can, please watch this:

About martisima

After over 50 years of teaching literature to undergraduate and graduate students, I feel I have earned my retirement (it happened when I was 72, five years ago). I do miss the classroom, however, but not the meetings and all other requirements of the profession. I love teaching, and wish I could still do it. But now I read for pleasure, and watch films, and listen to all kinds of music (no TV, though). I love to travel, and hope I can resume doing it soon. I need to get over my health issues caused by thyroid surgery three years ago!
