The Enemy Is Climate Change

I was thinking about things lately. If the human race is going to survive we will have to give up fighting each other and work on keeping all of  us alive. Our enemy is climate change, not other people.

There is a video that I have loved ever since I first saw it years ago. I call it the,
"Trudge. Trudge." video. It kind of gives an idea of what we need to do.

Here is a link to it on youtube:

We all need to face this problem and get to work on it fast. There is not much time left for us to make the changes we need to stop climate change from getting so much worse that it will not be possible to stop it. 

Human beings are not yet able to live without the Earth. We can not live if we change the Earth so that we can not live on it any more. We are busy doing that now. We have already passed a danger point that can make climate change speed up faster than anyone expected, even the pessimists. 

This danger point is having too much carbon in our air so that it causes the warming of earth to speed up out of control. The danger point of the amount of carbon in the air that we already passed is 350 parts per million carbon molecules. We have gotten up to 392 already. It is possible for us to get it back down to 350 by making very fast changes by not putting so much carbon into our air.

This means we have to stop using fossil fuels like oil, gas and coal. It won't be easy to do because we are used to using a lot of fossil fuels to live. We have forgotten how to live without fossil fuels.

It has only been about two generations that have been very dependent on fossil fuels. 

For most of the history of the human race, we have lived without much or any use of fossil fuels. It is not as if we can not survive without fossil fuels. It only means we have to live differently.

The internet is full of clever ways to stop using fossil fuels. We are not using these wonderful ideas. We need to do this to save our lives and keep human beings able to live on Earth.

I have already written about some of those clever ideas to avoid the use of fossil fuels. One of these is the, "Rocket" stove. Many of you have already looked at my posts about rocket stoves. I have several of them posted on this blog.

I hope more of you will look at rocket stoves and figure out how to use one yourself. Many youtubers have done this and made amazing improvements in rocket stoves. People are now working on pellet fed rocket stoves. Some of them are making pellets out of waste paper, sawdust, grass clippings and other wastes.

Some of you readers can surely come up with other good ideas to make rocket stoves better, cheaper, and easy to make and use. We all need you. The whole world is waiting for you.
