Prepare not Change

Today's post is in honor of National Blog Action Day. The subject is Climate Change. I am ashamed to say that I am not as informed scientifically on this subject as I should be....why should a crafty girl feel guilty about this you ask????

(Thanks for asking) Because I work at Oak Ridge National Laboratory where cutting edge really cool science is being done on Climate Change. So if you want to know some really technical stuff about the subject, click on the link to read a cutting edge article and then follow your nose around their site.




As for me and my naive understanding, I am wondering why the world is so concerned with slowing down climate change as opposed to preparing for it's eventual happening? Perhaps we are, but we're just not hearing about it? I base my opinion about the inevitable climate change on the many offerings the History and Science television channels produce depicting what happened during the previous catastrophic climate upheavals - you know ice ages, mass warming trends which assisted the separation of continents and so on?


Believe it or not, even without the intervention of man, the climate changes! Shocking I know! Who would have thought such a thing.....surely these scientists who suggest such a thing are crazy! Or is that passionate - I always get those confused. So, if the climate is going to change anyway or some meteorite is going to crash into earth causing devastating climatic variances, I would prefer the scientists work on survivability. Might I suggest we start with the cockroach, now there is a creature that has survivability! Next they need to develop a space suit we will look good in. That's it, that's the extent of my scientific suggestions, everything else I leave to the professionals.
Don't get me wrong, I'm all about clean water, pollution reduction, green spaces... but for the sake of enhanced living experiences not to avoid climate change....that one was set in motion long before we humans could do anything about it....lets learn how to live with it!


Oh and I almost forgot....I would like affordable solar panels so I can become independent from the energy companies....now I'm finished!

I second those motions. I think this is SMART posting! As you said - it IS going to happen, things WILL change, with or without humans on the earth, as history has already shown. The best we can do is keep it as clean as possible and prepare, prepare, prepare. Enjoyed your post!

Everyday the planet changes...been going on since it was created...everyday we, as humans, grow one day older and usually with changes going on as well...

Scientist have been and will always be fascinated by our planet and universe. Our intelligence is so superior that I have full confidence that everything will happen just the way it's supposed too. :0) Not to underestimate the research...I just think that our atmospheric changes can be tinkered with only to a certain degree..hehe (no pun intended) We could set off something soooo much worse than global warming if we aren't careful.

My uncle was in the coal business and also did work at Oak Ridge back when I was a young girl/adult.

Have a lovely day,
Stephanie

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I hadn't look it from the point of view of survivability, but you are right - that is practical and makes a lot of sense. I think we should work on both - prevention and cure - at the same time.
