An Indicator of Madness

Warnings were issued in the UK over the last two days about the high level of pollution in the air. Those with heart and lung problems were cautioned to 'take extra care; don’t stay outside in it too long and don’t over-exert yourself. Those suffering with asthma might need to make more use of their inhaler' etc. London’s air pollution is already above the World Health Organisation safety levels, and what is permitted by the European Union. This was compounded apparently by fine Saharan desert sand dust blown in our direction, along with what the prevailing wind picked up from other European cities. In short, we were dumped on. Seriously, have you ever really thought about what global warming/climate change may mean for you at a personal level? It’s time to ask the question: what does the decimation and deterioration of the environment mean for me personally, here now, not 50 or 100 years Hence. And if you have thought about it, what can you personally do about it? Thats a quest…
