2050 / by Neil Blake

So now that I don’t work, I’ve got myself a LOT of free time to fill. How I deal with situations like these is I try to find things to do to fill my days. I usually start off with a quick look at Facebook, but I’ve really been trying to focus on what I need to do lose some weight.

I’m currently sitting at “The Coffee Shop” here in Tobermory on an absolutely beautiful day. From some of the articles I’ve been reading on Flipboard have been talking about the amount of damage we as the human race have been doing to our home planet. The articles I’ve been reading have been saying everything from how the recycling programs in Ontario, and most likely the rest of Canada, and most likely the US as well is not actually helping the environment at all. In fact it is probably making it even worse. Micro plastics are only getting worse and more prevalent around the world!

On top of all that plastic that will be around for a long, long time, we should remember: in order to produce the stuff in the first place, we need to get the oil and gas to manufacture it. That takes up a lot of resources. We have already gotten to the point where the Oil Sands in Alberta actually makes sense to some people.

Today, corporations are all just seeking higher and higher profits and will do anything it takes to the environment to make it happen ANYTHING!

We haven’t even talked about global warming yet! It has already started and has gotten so bad that HUGE glaciers at both the South and North poles. Once they are gone, there will be NOTHING left to cool the planet!

When scientists look at the current rate of change we are already seeing in the weather they predict that by the year 2050, it will be too hot for humans to survive! That is only 30 years away!

My diagnosis has really taught me to live and enjoy life as much as I can every day and you should to!
