Remember how I noted earlier this HM that March came in like a lion? Well, contrary to the old saying, it’s beginning to look like March is going out like a lion too.
Big rain storms here in MyValley & lotsa snow up in the mountains. We are hoping & some are praying that the snow pack will reach normal for this time of year. Snowbank is our H2O Savings Account, ya know. At least if we reach average we might have enough for a couple of years of drought, which no one can predict whether drought will occur again or for how long it will last. So we’re wishin’ & hopin’ & thinkin’ & prayin’ for an adequate snow pack.
Down in SoCA they are experiencing major big rain storms. Their mountains along the coast, where my cuzzins live, aren’t high enough to get snow. So all that water can come rushing down & create flash floods in the burn areas. Seems like that area already flash flooded once.
In the east, where we got friends & relations who are experiencing tornadoes in FL, where my BFFs Annie & GMama live. I don’t think they got blown eastward cuz they’d wind up in the ocean. At the same time, New England, where my UncaT & Auntie Teach live, they got the 4th Nor’easter in March goin’ on.
I know. Some, perhaps many, humans chose not to believe in Global Climate Crisis. They think the best way is to ignore it & pray it’ll just go away. Poof. Gone. But that doesn’t seem to be happening. If anything weather patterns are getting more radical.
I dunno. We, here at Todo Chronicles, think it would occur to these super smart systems analysts, that when you tweak & fiddle with a system, which AnimalPlanet.com is, eventually all the little small fiddles & tweaks lead to a breakdown of said system. Which seems to be the case these days. Humans cut down rain forests. Toss emissions of destructive gases into the air, water & ground. Alter the shape of landscapes. Pave over big big areas of ground so rainwater can’t seep into the groundwater system. I mean the list is endless of the many ways humans have altered a system not of their design.
But even if you chose to pray the crisis away, it seems to us, here at Todo Chronicles, that humans would want to do things to reduce the risk to life & property. And, by the way, reduce risk to all life forms since humans aren’t the only living inhabitants of AnimalPlanet.com. They also might want to think about altering their ways & preventing damage & loss before it occurs.
Humans have the capability. We, here at Todo Chronicles, think they lack the motivation until Climate Change actually affects them, personally, right in their own back yard. When the costs of repairing damage & rescuing the impacted get higher than the National Debt. Humans many be smart (or not) but they certainly lack the ability to see beyond the end of their noses, which are too short in any case.
