What the World Can Learn From New England About Living in Changing Climate

Follow Me on Twitter     Message Burl Hall

Do we keep our heads in the sand regarding climate change? Can we see the patterns across arenas such as politics, business, education, and health regarding how these patterns affect us? Could one of the roots of the problem be standardization and the goal of never-ending growth? Dare we identify our corporate "never ending growth" mentality as one with the definition of cancer, which speaks to cells whose growth has gone wild?

Is the demolishing of our lands the result of a cancerous growth we call progress? And what happens to the host of this progressive growth when it has taken over the whole body?

We simply die. Our children die, our loved ones die and the Earth becomes as lifeless as the moon.

The following contains an excerpt from an article presented in the Huffington Post. I am quoting the beginning of the article:

While our hearts are heavy as Paris, the city of lights, dimmed for a moment in the face of recent terror, the world will not let acts of terrorism keep us from what could be the most important climate change negotiations of our lifetime.

This past weekend, in spite of a crackdown on large demonstrations in Paris, more than 600,00 people in 175 countries held climate marches demanding a clean energy future. And today, President Obama and leaders from more than 190 nations are opening the Paris Climate Conference, also known as COP21 (the 21st Conference of the Parties).
