Happy Earth Day: Doubt climate change? Just be patient and watch

Don’t like those odds? Then stop, now.

Some of them were angry,
At the way the Earth was abused
By the men who learned how to forge her beauty into power.
And they struggled to protect her from them, only to be confused
By the magnitude of her fury in the final hour
When the sand was gone and the time arrived …

Remember, the amount of human emissions in atmosphere has doubled since 1992, about when the leaders of the world claimed to begin to take this seriously.
