Here is the Real Tragedy: THE NEW NORMAL

Climate change is a devilish problem for humanity with scary forecasts. It is worse, much worse, than you think. If your anxiety about global warming is dominated by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely scratching the surface of what terrors are possible. Across the US, “500-year” storms pummel communities month after month, and floods displace tens of millions annually. 

Parts of the Earth could become close to uninhabitable, and other parts horrifically inhospitable, as soon as the end of this century, distorting nearly every aspect of human life as it is lived today. They expect 200 million climate refugees in the world by 2050.

Like An Inconvenient Truth and Silent Spring before it, The Uninhabitable Earth is both a meditation on the devastation we have brought upon ourselves and an impassioned call to action. The world was brought to the brink of catastrophe within the span of a lifetime.

Because humans are responsible for the problem, they must be capable of undoing at least some of it. It sounds the alarm at a time when immediate action must be taken. The responsibility to avoid it now belongs to a single generation: your generation!

Stimulus and automatic stabilization are still able to place a floor under economic collapse. But they are not able to bring about a return to high growth and full employment. Exercising caution over warning signs is tantamount to complacency.

The book, The Uninhabitable Earth: Life after Warming depicts the most horrendous catastrophes that will wreak havoc and death on the earth if the people and nations do not immediately undertake major serious programs to halt global warming – if it is not already too late.

Global warming is wreaking havoc now. In California, wildfires now rage year-round, destroying thousands of homes. Five of the 20 worst fires in California’s history blazed in 2017; the deadliest incinerated the town of Paradise last year. Floods are becoming wetter, droughts drier and hurricanes fiercer. Such calamities mark “the end of normal”, as climate change tips Earth beyond the conditions that allowed humans to evolve in the first place. And that is with barely 1°C of man-made warming since the industrial revolution.

Things will get much worse. The world is on course to become at least 3°C hotter than in pre-industrial times. Even if warming did not exceed 2°C, as stipulated in the Paris climate agreement of 2015, rising seas may engulf $1 trillion-worth of American property.

LONELINESS AND LOVE

Love is the only escape from loneliness. The one thing that changes the world from a lonely place to a beautiful place is love. Love gives us hope.

Where’s God in My Loneliness?

Jesus-the only one who knows everything about you yet loves you perfectly-is the answer to your deepest need and the cure to your loneliness. “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”                                                                                               Psalm 23:4

So if your life is empty, fill it with Christ. You are never left alone when you are alone with God. “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:4. Put the Kingdom of God first and all else will come. Cling to your life and you will lose it. Let the Spirit teach you to be satisfied with the fact that you have eternal life and will be with Jesus forever. The more you delight in God, the greater joy and satisfaction there is!

 Please Jesus, fill this loneliness with Your love.
