An Invitation and a Challenge
At last, the jury is in. The verdict is out. And the verdict of UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is: Yes, the earth has fever, high fever. We, the sons and daughters of Mother Earth have given her the fever. The fever is rising alarmingly. Worse, unless we control the fever within the next 15 years, it will be too late. Life on earth will then begin to trundle down towards destruction and death, towards complete extinction.
With this threat looming over us, are we going to just keep looking at the thermometer and shaking our heads in desperation? Or are we going to throw ourselves into purposeful action and pull life on earth out of the jaws of death?
Who is going to give the earth the right medication? Us or, as usual, somebody else?
