Common Sense Gone

I realize that myself along with billions of people around the globe are all in the same boat, or in other words, we are all on the same planet. The planet is heating up, we see it everyday all over the World. London England was recently the hottest place on earth. Unprecedented heat waves all over Europe, floods, wild fires, oceans warming, animals dying, tornados and other weather phenomenons. We do not see our World leaders acting to confront the crisis. Science has been shouting warnings to governments for years of this coming situation, yet all have fallen on deaf ears. I look around my own nation, what have my leaders done? Unfortunately not nearly enough, weak half  efforts, rebates on Electric cars, E bikes. Charging an already struggling people a carbon tax, a less than perfect recycling system, failing to curtail pollution. Over fishing the oceans, poisoning the land with chemicals and so many other dangerous activities. I glad I’m old because what I see all around me is the death of common sense. We have a Pope flying (pollution)here to apologize! We have a Prime Minister flying (pollution)to greet him. We have big corporations pushing government to do their (pollution)bidding. We have people demanding freedom with huge truck convoys. We have people demanding more guns and others demanding less. Here on PEI we have a handful of people demanding we change the name of Savage Harbour!  My God! It’s about time this world got its priorities in order. If we do not act now, very soon no one will care about the Popes apology or what name changes happen. Pretty soon it will be too late for us and the planet.
Sorry for this depressing Monday morning blog, but it has to be said while we might still have time.
God Bless and pray!
