I reside in southwestern B.C. (Canada), and the unprecedented heatwave a few weeks ago, described by meteorologists as more of a stalling “heat dome” phenomenon, left me feeling I would never again complain about the weather being too cold. I recently read a Metro UK online piece that’s telling its local readers their internet signal may be disrupted by the extreme heat.

Clearly there has been discouragingly insufficient political courage and will to properly act upon the cause-and-effect of manmade global warming and climate change. Neo-liberals and conservatives are overly preoccupied with vociferously criticizing one another for their politics and beliefs thus diverting attention away from the planet’s greatest polluters, where it should and needs to be sharply focused. (Although, it seems to be the â€˜conservativesâ€™ who do not mind polluting the planet most liberally.)
But there’s still some hope for spaceship Earth and therefor humankind due to environmentally conscious and active young people, especially those who are approaching/reaching voting age.
