Mother nature is turning the world of science upside down. This past summer in North America the heat waves brought devastation and destruction to the living food supplies for animals. By mid_summer farmers were feeding their livestock ‘hay’ since the farm animals had insufficient food on the ground. At the same time, monitors of sea life warned that the current trend of ocean depletion will bring death to more than 60% of marine life in the oceans of the world by 2050. On top of this the Antarctica ozone hole is increasing to the largest size ever recorded. Apart from the sensations of the new forecasts, the demographic profile of population increase with the changing climate, massive starvation may become rampant by the mid-21st century without technical breakthroughs of future science. Scientists have made sizable gains in what was once considered an impossible art—reconstructing the history of Earth’s atmosphere back into the dim past. They can now peer across more than a half billion years. The scientists have learned about the changing climate from ice cores, soil and rock which have revealed startling clues of fossilized plants and sea creatures. They have also gained insights from computer models that predict how phenomena like eroding rocks and erupting volcanoes have altered the planet’s environment.
At issue is whether the findings back the determined view of global warming. One side, exemplified by the UK’s Nicholas Stern Report, foresees a looming crisis of planetary heating and economic collapse if the world fails to immediately tackle climate change; the other, views temperature increase as more of a nuisance than a catastrophe. Few if any would deny ‘global warming’. The greater question is how hazardous will it be or is it part of a natural planetary cycle. Regardless of your own beliefs, the effects are still present.
According to UN records (2005), 1.2 of the 6.6 billion humans barely survive on less than one dollar per day. A tragic 2.9 billion humans live on less than two dollars per day. The tragedy continues with 800 million humans in the developing nations being illiterate, of which 538 million are women. This means that a large percentage of humanity’s “developing nations” are disenfranchised from participating in the greater lifestyle many take for granted on mother earth.
A massive rethinking is ahead! The evolution of morals for global responsibility requires a major reverse in thinking regarding areas of energy, but also areas of consciousness. We are required to rethink our global ethics. We need to heed warnings that are showing us evidence of earlier civilizations that have come and gone on planet earth very quickly. We urgently need to put the “purpose of life” back into focus and to rejoice in being conscious of helping ‘all life’. With this we gain the understanding that our planet is the house we have been given to care for within the Greater House of Many Mansions.
