Thursday Thoughts – Climate Change vs Personal Change

Who remembers the climate cooling Apocalypse warnings of the seventies? No? You too young?

Debunking Inside Climate’s “5 Shades of Climate Denial ...

This image stayed with me for a very long time… until I worked out that it was all bull… just like the ozone hole hoax and the drama of the earth running out of fuel by the year 2000. Just by the way… if you still don’t believe all that shite happened way back then, I’ll leave you with just this one link… you can find out for yourself! Yes, take a bit of time, educate yourself and then those closest to you.

The doomsday prophets back then also scared children but our parents told us to believe truth… not lies. Also… we were blessed back then… we didn’t have 24 hour per day social media and fake news onslaughts on our minds and on our reasoning. Like the children have today. Then you wonder why you hear stories of children suffering anxiety attacks?

That my friends, is what you get when you allow yourself to believe all the bull that’s going around! So… here’s a though…

Instead of worrying about climate change… rather concern yourself with personal change!

I thank my good lady for vocalising the thought. It happened while we were chatting about what our grand-kids are going through with all this Greta-mania. So… we decided to stress to their parents that they start thinking of personal change, like focusing on pollution.

Pollution of body, mind and soul!  

There are simple step any household can take.

  • Reduce the amounts of processed foods and carbohydrates that come in through the front doors.
  • Buy local fresh produce… supporting small farmers who don’t prop up their practices with chemically enhanced mono-culture methods.
  • This will lead to less waste and a healthier diet.
  • Also, find out what your children are taught at school.
  • Last but not least, challenge your local government representatives. Levying a carbon tax on people is taxing them for breathing!

OK… I’ll leave you with this lovely image… and the prediction that my great, great grand-kids will most likely play on or near this beach at some point in their lives… maybe even with their grand-kids in tow…

And guess what? Yes… the climate will still be changing… and carbon dioxide will still be a non-toxic essential element for life on earth!

Happy Yappy…

Something a tad different today. We don’t have pets… we left our dog behind in South Africa when we left there about nineteen years ago. Our cat, Fuzzy, passed on to that kitty palace in the sky earlier this year and we just haven’t had the heart to sully his memory by inviting another pet into the house.

However, I really enjoy watching dogs having fun at the beach or at the river… so, I had almost as much fun on Sunday capturing some of these photos. Here’s a gallery taken… of me enjoying the happy yappy in full flow. No, the river was in full flow… the happy yappy was in full fun flow! Yep, I know I’m not supposed to take pictures into the sun… but hey, it adds a bit of sparkle…

Macro Monday – Another American Beauty!

I left a comment over at Irene’s Sunshine’s Macro Monday issue eleven roundup… that I may just return to New York for today’s challenge. So, here we go… back to Brooklyn Heights… where we spotted quite a few Monarchs. I really don’t have to say much more… apart from asking why you’re not taking part in Irene’s weekly macros challenges? OK, that’s if you’re not already participating.

NOTE: Again, just a reminder – I’ll place the ping-back link as soon as Irene does today’s challenge post… done. However, note that Irene has created a whole new site for the Macro Monday’s posts… enjoy!

Friday’s Fun Foto… Red – Glossy Red

A flash of colour… adds to our Friday series of photo fun, wouldn’t you say? Taken somewhere along a pedestrian walkway in Brooklyn, New York. I vaguely recall where but don’t ask me to pinpoint… I was far too busy pinpointing the camera at the flashy colours… and other associated scenery…

Thursday Thought – Carbon Calamity – How DARE YOU!?

Greetings fellow carbon constituent creatures! Yes… you read right! I’ve done just a bit of pilfering over at Wiki-P… just to prove a point! Here’s the link to their page on the matter of carbon as a constituent of the human body… read for yourself if you don’t believe me! Also, I have “lifted” the very illustrative diagram from that page… to emphasise what I am attempting to show.

So… may I wonder (aloud) what all the fuss is about carbon? I’ll suggest that the control freaks haven’t quite worked out that we are all carriers of this dreaded toxin. No, maybe they have… that’s why they’re demanding we pay a carbon tax? I’m just a little perturbed though… people don’t seem to want to ask questions about the subject… rather they believe all the hype… but don’t believe me, do your own research, come-on…


Also… it seems only the western world is burdened with the carbon load… or am I wrong? OK… just before you shout the latest buzz phrase at me, I’ll mouth it at you…


Yes… like the whim of the wind with the dandelion fluff… so the prophets of false doom will have their ideas blown away… I mean, the truth should set us free… eventually!

OK… here’s you entertainment for the day… the lighter moment… with a message.

Right… before you go off half-cocked at me… follow the whole thread posted on the last few Thursdays… and also visit the above Our World page. And, as always, educate yourself… it is your responsibility to find the truth… not that young girl’s to brainwash you!
