The effects of climate change are becoming a reality --and a very frightening one at that!

I am sad about the conditions of the world we will be leaving my children -- now teenagers -- sometimes wonder had I known what was going to happen if my wife and I would have thought differently.....still I will keep care2ing (50 buttefly pts offset CO2, 500 plant a tree), composting, reducing, reusing, educating, turning off lights, etc....its our only hope......

With all of the unsettling news that emerges each day, I no longer think about the future but am just grateful to survive to see another day all while doing what little I can to help people and make the world a little less scary. Thank you Carrie.

Future? What future? I do so worry about our five grandsons and what their lives may be. So very sad and heartbreaking.
