Seniors: Whatever it is, the Weather Sure is Changing

Feb 4th, 2011 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

Argue as you will, the weather is changing.  Deny climate change or global warming of any other label that may apply, something is amiss.  The plummeting temperatures, the record breaking snow, the historic across the continent brutal cold, something is up.  Fantasy and denial won’t make it go away.  There is something in the air, there is something happening to the oceans, there is something occurring at the poles.  

Historians and climatologists claim that there is a shift in weather patterns.  Some, who never read much or listen much, claim that those guys don’t know what they are talking about.  Say what you will, something is going on. Our world is like a child’s toy spinning in space, until finally it spends itself to a stop.  Its energy threatened, its stability questionable, its world wide repetition of disasters and powerful forces constant.

The “oh, well this too will pass” may be right, but at what consequence, after what cataclysmic upheavals.  There may not be much we can do about the events affecting our world and its patterns.   The ostrich like behavior of many will surely not change real and evident change.  Some of us won’t live long enough to witness the continuing spiral of rapid cause and effect.  Some will just choose to ignore and off put the evidence that looms before us. 

What some concern themselves about is what happens to those who are left with the poor choices and the blind dissent of many adults, not giving thought to those who must live with and in whatever is left? Hope is a refuge for some.  Espousing the armageddon doctrine is the retreat of others.  Whatever the escape routes that are chosen, why is it we had rather surrender to the worst than to offer our best in entertaining prevention?
