We have bad news.
We are destroying our "home" (Earth)
at a rate that we don't fully understand.
The "global warming" dialog in political
circles is generally naïve, counterproductive,
and heavily influenced by the energy sector.
We must reduce CO₂ emissions now!
Many people are not fond of "science"
but do like watching movies.
If you watch just the first 20 minutes
of a Netflix movie called "Chasing Coral"
you will better understand how URGENT
man-made global ecosystem crisis is.
If you study global warming, you will
quickly learn that a more appropriate
label for the phenomenon is ENVIRONMENTAL APOCALYPSE.
People are slow to appreciate the
magnitude of the problem because
it is growing over years and decades
rather than minutes and hours
the way other "newsworthy" items are.
A fair analogy of our stewardship
of our environment goes like this:
We're driving a big bus with
brakes that aren't as good as we think,
down a hill that is steeper than we think,
and the curve in the road just ahead
is sharper than we think.

Once upon a time,
in a place far, far away called "Wisconsin,"
couple fell in love and married.
Doris & Jim met each other at a Friday night
on December 16, 1949.
Mom sez, "...at this point [above], we weren't
even really serious about each other."
Dad sez, "I was serious." Somewhere down the road,
they both got serious & something clicked...NINE times. When we were young
our parents moved a lot,
but we always found them.

How shall we care for this amazing vessel that affords us life and comfort? Shall we fill the oceans with plastic? Shall we shower it with nuclear radiation? Shall we pump CO₂ and poisonous NO₂ into the air until it resembles the uninhabitable planets we're so anxious to explore? Let's not.
Planet Earth is orbiting the sun at about 67,000 miles an hour.
Resting near the equator, you are spinning around the molten center of this supersonic projectile at about 1,000 miles an hour.
Our magnificent sun is about 93 million miles from our planet Earth.
Our entire solar system is just a microscopic speck within our own Milky Way galaxy.
The Milky Way contains hundreds of billions of stars...including our sun. Our galaxy is NOT expanding the way the universe is.
Our Milky Way galaxy is just one of billions of galaxies in the "known" universe.
The Andromeda Galaxy is moving towards the Milky Way and will collide with us in about 4 billion years. Humans will orchestrate their own "end times" many times before then, but mother Earth might actually survive this collision.
The currently observable universe is about 100,000,000,000 light years in diameter and expanding. That's 100 billion light years. One light year—the distance light can travel in one year in space—is ≅5,878,499,810,000 miles.
Here's an illustration of how fast light is: Earth is 24,901 miles around at its center. If earth had no atmosphere to slow light down, light skimming along its surface could lap the equator nearly 7½ times every second.
If only you could travel at the speed of light for billions of years, you'd muster the true concept of how vast our universe has become over its multi-billion-year lifespan.
As our universe expands, there is a distance in every direction from us—on the fringe of our known universe—where the recession velocity of galactic objects exceeds the velocity of light, which means luminous objects beyond that distance become invisible (and unknowable) to us. So we can't even tell how big our "universe" is. ∞ will have to suffice for now.
Enjoy a good laugh (but do be sympathetic to the ignorant!) when someone confidentially assures you that the earth was created "thousands" of years ago.
Regardless of our significance (or lack thereof), we must do our best to make our situation better for those around us and those who will follow in our footsteps.
There comes a time in your life when you just walk away from all the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living. Every day is a blessing. While you soar through space in this amazing place, take a deep breath. let go of your anxiety, and be perfectly still, loving & serene.
That's something you can do for this world.
World peace starts in your mind.
LOVE your day and your day will be better.
Gratitude—savoring the POSITIVE circumstances of life—will make you happier.
When you're happy, others around you are happier.
ALLOW. Sometimes what you resist persists. Resisting or "embracing" a painful experience can wear you down. Try to just "allow" it for a spell.
Are you now ready to spread peace, love & happiness?
