I blog about environmental and social justice issues because I am very concerned about the health of the interdependent web of life of which we are a part.

Is Anyone Else Seeing a Pattern Here?

Recent news:

Yup - there's a pattern - extreme flooding.  In fact,extreme weather events are becoming more common.   

The work shows so-called “blocking patterns”, where hot or wet weather remains stuck over a region for weeks causing heatwaves or floods, have more than doubled in summers over the last decade.  http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/aug/11/extreme-weather-common-blocking-patterns
 So - maybe we should take climate change seriously. Actually do something, I mean.   Whaddya think?  Wanna keep rolling the dice - gambling that serious effects wont' happen while you're alive?   Looks like that's a bad bet.....
Write your MP.    Lobby the provincial government.
