Humankind has received a diagnosis as severe as that of a grave cancer diagnosis.

The signs are glaringly clear. The temperatures in our oceans are at alarming levels, June was the hottest month we've ever experienced, and just this week, we set a new record for the hottest day three days in a week! Yet, most still deny what needs to be done. Unless we act on climate change, undergo the tough detoxification treatment, and stop digging and burning fossil fuels, we are literally on the brink.

Most will face death and chaos around us within our lifetime. I urge you to read this sentence again.
Living in denial is no longer an option. Everyone must contribute. We all need to ensure our civilization undergoes the equivalent of chemotherapy to rapidly transition to a fossil-free society. There is an incredible amount to be done, but the most crucial action we can take right now is to acknowledge the elephant in the room and hold our political leaders accountable. We must build a popular opinion and use all of our influence, especially that of corporations, to persuade our political leaders to stop sponsoring the fossil-fuel industry. According to the IMF, $11 million per minute is spent globally on fossil subsidies! If we remove these, the conditions for a fossil society collapse, and we can witness a cork popping effect! While it's not everything required, it would be a significant step. If you're a leader, you can make a significant difference: 'We Don't Have Time' has initiated a global appeal for this cause. Companies, entrepreneurs, and investors can sign up. To date, over 800 leaders from 76 countries representing 40 million employees have signed. I urge you to do the same.
The facts this week:
  • Monday: Average global temperature hits 17.01°C (62.62°F), highest in 125,000 years
  • Tuesday: Record climbs to 17.18°C, beats Monday's
  • Thursday: Record climbs to 17.23°C, beats Tuesday's
3 hottest days in 125,000 years in 4 days
And it's only Friday...

      The truth is here with us, but shockingly is factual truths. A collective action is really urgently needed to revise the matter. Warning ⚠️ signals are all over.

          There are indigenous people who have been warning about what would happen if so much of the 'civilised' world continues to live out of balance with nature and continues to promote unsustainable ways of living that take from the planet and give nothing back except plastic and other pollution. I am thinking in particular of the Kogi tribe from Colombia, who in 1990 were featured in a BBC documentary entitled From The Heart of the World: The Elder Brothers' Warning. These people basically said that "the world will end" unless we change our ways. Their warning fell on deaf ears. Governments, global organisations, and manufacturers continued with business as usual. I mention the Kogi and their warning in my book Saving Mother Ocean, which is endorsed by many notable people, including Sea Shepherd founder, Captain Paul Watson. Captain Paul has said: "If the ocean dies, we die."

            Human behavior is at the core of many environmental challenges,and if we could change those human behaviors into best practices mother nature will cool, replenish and thrive again a poetic justice indeed.😀

              Hot temperatures increase the ozone concentration, which can damage people's lung tissue and cause complications for asthma patients and those with lung diseases. Its a high time we continue being on the fore-front for the betterment of our earth.

                    Until we have REAL leadership across all of the biggest nations involved in the destruction of our unique planet, we are on a path of no return. Too many selfish interests are served by maintaining current emissions which means that all the "little" people have to suffer - the poor, the homeless, the developing nations, the hungry....actually everyone!! Sacrifice for the good of the whole is just something we, at least in the developed west, have no concept of. I would love to be full of hope but it is hard when we are surrounded by a world of humanity that only cares about themselves.

                          Climate change will kill us slowly but surely if humans continue to delay restoration actions

                            Prolonged periods of abnormally high temperatures can have serious health effects on vulnerable populations, such as the elderly and the sick,its the high time we keep pressing to control the climate change in a positive way.
