Unfortunately extreme weather is going to increase, worse tornados and a longer time frame for them, those 500 year floods more and more common, hurricanes going into areas not use to them like way up in Vermont and Arizona. Increased glacier melting, droughts, extreme heat waves, it is all what Scientist had predicted in the world, and here it is.

Our leaders waited too long to act, the Greedy Heartless Ones had to keep lining their pockets with gold, a new mansion, another private jet. While the rich drove around in their latest Hummer and the Middle Class enjoyed their latest gadget from a flat screen TV to an update cell phone/I-phone, others have watched as their crops dried out or flooded over, famine from war, greed, and stupidity abound. Obtaining more and more resources to keep this charade going has devastated whole eco systems and now has us truly in the Climate Disruption that we were told we were headed for.

The best we can do now is try to avert the worst of it, but with the snails pace that the global leaders are addressing this, includes Paris, we can expect it to get far worse. Woe be to any one of us who sat back and did nothing to raise our own awareness and that of others around us. Best hope that the memories of the youth of today have something in it that Grandma and Grandpa along with their parents got off their butts to try to do something about this, or at the very least voted for people who were truly concerned with the environment. I'd rather go to my grave knowing I was one of the few who voted for people like Rocky Anderson than voted in either of the two major candidates last time running for President, the lesser of the two evils when the environmental clock is ticking away isn't cutting it.
