We’re facing the world’s biggest crisis, and it wasn’t even brought up during the presidential debates. It’s just unreal that not one moderator decided to ask why it is that 2014 was history’s hottest year ever recorded, until it was broken by 2015, of course. Any bets on how long that record will stand?
Talk about same old, same old! Let’s just continue doing nothing and see how many more heat records we can break, how many hurricanes, droughts and forest fires we can bring on, how many species we can wipe out, glaciers we can melt, how many island nations and coastlines have to drown before we realize we are in serious trouble here?
In fact, one of our presidential candidates actually refuses to accept what global scientists, our own defense department and even the major oil companies are all saying about climate change.
Get real, folks. You can start by tuning in to National Geographic Channel’s new documentary series, “Years of Living Dangerously,” which airs Wednesday at 10 p.m.
Never miss a local story.
