Earth’s not feeling well, Mr. Stark

Elijah Kesh Rosales ||

Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Imagine the expanse of the azure blue sky as it blankets the world in its entirety. Imagine the waves that paint and distort reflections of the very same sky in shades of blues and hues one’s eyes can only ever imagine. Imagine the animals that roam the surface of great mother Gaia, the birds that dance so gracefully in the air, the fishes that glide through the crystal blue waters, and the land animals that graze the fertile soil. Now open your eyes and pray with all your might as it is inevitable that all will disintegrate into dust, vanishing before your eyes. You better memorize all of the details and intricacies of our world in your head, because all that beauty is going to go “I’m not feeling well, Mr. Stark” soon in a fiery red hot ball of tragedy that nobody can escape from.

I think we all know and recognize at this point that climate change and global warming is a very real issue that we have virtually no escape from. If you still don’t believe in it, then frankly, you should evaluate yourself. I personally believe those who haven’t taken the time to learn about this pressing matter must share the same amount of brain cells with a sea sponge. Funnily enough, I’ve always said that climate change is like a government; it’s of the people, by the people, and for the people. This awful atrocity didn’t happen overnight as it didn’t pop up suddenly in one day like that zit which appeared out of nowhere during hell week. Climate change is a beast that humanity has been feeding and nourishing for years, which will eventually eat them up too. It’s a ticking time bomb waiting for the right time to snap. The question now lies in whether or not we can do anything about it. Can we?
