That Really Burns My Biscuits! #5

burnt biscuit

Ya know what really burns my biscuits?

People who deny climate change!

I think part of the problem stems from people referring to it as global warming. People (at least in my neck of the woods) feel the cold and scoff at the idea that the planet is warming, even though polar ice caps are literally melting….

Anyway, climate change is a much better term for it, and I don’t understand how people can deny the reality of it. Wake up and look at the weather patterns going on around you! Bizarre things are happening, we have blizzards hitting the south, while it’s 60 degrees in the Appalachian mountains, in FEBRUARY!

I get that people are scared, they don’t like change, and they are too proud to admit that they have contributed to all of these scary changes happening to our planet, but if every single one of us doesn’t start taking the necessary steps to reverse the damage of climate change, there won’t be a planet left to save, and your children and grandchildren won’t have a future. Let that sink in a minute….

And please, refrain from posting some ridiculous political comment because all it’s going to do is make me sad for you. Sorry, but if you have no regard for the planet we’re living on and lack the respect to try and preserve it, then I pity you and have no sympathy.

I think we all could use some more Captain Planet in our lives!!

What about you? What burns your biscuits?

Love & life lessons,

Kristian

    I am with you sister. I cannot fathom how anyone can refute the obvious science. They might as well go back to thinking the earth is flat and the sun revolves around our planet. (Scary thought is some of them probably do) Now, I am hungry for biscuits…this happens every time…๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿช

      Right?!?! Oh, I have listened to some people who believe the earth is flat. Their stupidity blows my mind!! Lol. It’s crazy! Haha. I feel like I should send you some homemade biscuits since I’m always making you hungry for them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Mine too! Itโ€™s an attitude of burying our heads in the sand and that can only result in more damage.

    It’s bizarre that people distrust science so much they’d rather keep their heads stored up their butts.

  5. Totally understand! I cannot fathom how it is that people cannot see the damage we are doing and have done to this planet. I want to leave my child a planet that is not going to die out in his life time. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s a lot more complicated than we’re being told. Unfortunately, it’s a vector where science and politics collide. Of course the planet is warming, and it was warming before the populations of the Earth were as large as they are today. The Earth reached its last glacial maximum about 20,000 years ago, when the planet started its warming cycle. The Younger Dryas reversed the warming trajectory about 12,800 years ago, and plunged the Earth into cold period which was concurrent with the megafauna extinctions in North America. Then slowly the planet started warming up again. The problem is, people will go on about ‘obvious science’, when it’s far more nuanced. Included in the equation is the precessional cycle of the planet along its oblique orbit around the sun, which also plays a role. Do I think we need to be the caretakers of this planet? Of course I do. Move away from fossil fuels? Absolutely. But, when someone is called a ‘denier’ or a ‘flat earther’, it’s divisive and not conducive to find out the solutions needed to understand all of the mechanisms involved with a warming planet. But, I do love your burned biscuits. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Thanks for your input, Rob. I understand that there are issues with the world that are beyond our control. There are solar storms happening and things out in space play a part too. However, I do believe that with cleaner energy, recycling, etc… we can help prolong our beautiful Earth. I also agree that divisiveness is not conductive to finding solutions, however; we all need to work together, and when people bury their heads in the sand and say that they are not contributing to climate change, or climate change doesn’t exist, what would you call it? I’m not trying to point fingers or call people names, it’s just a fact that some people “deny” climate change is a thing. It’s baffling, and quite honestly, a bit scary. Thank you, as always, for reading and for your support. I really do appreciate it. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Mankind has had a definite impact. Yes the earth goes through cycles naturally. However, us putting billions of tons of carbon and pollution into the air has a huge impact. They can look at ice cores from the arctic and see that when the industrial revolution started the carbon in the air sky rocketed. We may not be the sole cause, but we sure as hell accelerated the process. It is a complicated situation, anything involving planet wide conditions will be complex. We have to do something regardless. While we sit here and debate well this much is man and this much is natural, it’s not getting better.

      There are people who deny that any change is happening. Those who say that it’s all a hoax and that the melting caps are not real and staged. Those who say it’s just a phase and it’s just a liberal way to get rid of coal and gas. Those are the people who need to get out of the way.

        Well, actually, debating is part of the process, don’t you think? It’s imperative to find out how much is natural and how much is man made. For example, Krakatoa erupted in 1883, and 25 cubic kilometres of rock and ash were sent into the air, causing global cooling for years, and the planet started to warm again. Yes, man plays a role, and some would suggest a big role. But what I’m not ever going to accept is anyone shouting down dissenting opinion on this, because that never works. Let it weave its way through the peer review process without the influence of politics.

        We need to find out how to slow it and give us time to adapt. Yes, the why is vital, but we can’t get caught up with that and waste time doing something. I do agree the further politics is from the process, the better.

    While Iโ€™m not denying CC, I am an agreement with the comment above. The Earth has gone through many dramatic cycles and will continue to do so. Humans like to believe everything is about them however… weโ€™ve definitely affected the planet tremendously because there are so many of us. Perhaps the Earth will do something about that as well…

      Interesting insight. Perhaps it will…. And I am in agreement with you & Rob by the way. I just also believe there are things we can do to prolong the Earth’s life while we are here. I do agree that one day the Earth won’t be here, and there isn’t anything we can do about that, just like one day the sun will stop shining. I understand there are things beyond our control, but I also believe there are things we can do to help our planet and reverse some of the damage we have caused. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Whether you believe in climate change or not, you have to agree there is a lack of respect for this Earth. We do all need to chip in and try to reverse what we can. Why do people litter? Why do they throw garbage in the ocean? Why do they still use pesticides?

    Here is a countervailing point of view. It is not a denial of global warming by any means. I agree that things need to change, however saying things need to change and actually doing something are completely different.

      I hear what this is saying, and I totally understand where they are coming from, however; the longer things stay the same, the worse the climate will get. Do I think the world is going to end in my lifetime? Probably not. In my grandchildren’s (if I ever have any) lifetime? It’s a good possibility. I can’t change the world, but I can change mine. And I have. I recycle, I avoid buying plastic where I can & buy glass instead. I stopped using products with harsh chemicals that are harmful to the planet. I rescue bees, & I do my best to eliminate waste. I realize this isn’t much, but it’s a start. And if every single person in the US alone made those same changes, think of the difference it could make!!

        I agree with you 100%. However the US only produces 14% of world CO2 emissions. We should never stop working to do more to better ourselves we need to keep the reality that if we were to sacrifice everything, China, India and Russia may very well just negate all that we do. It truly has to be a global effort.
