Why Are These Men Afraid of Greta Thunberg?

There is great power in truth. The problem is that those who fear the truth will say and do anything to keep the truth from being revealed.

Greta Thunberg is not afraid of revealing the truth about climate change and the limited time we have to prevent the destruction of our world. This I believe, deep down is what we these men are afraid of. They are also afraid because the truth comes out of a young girl who does not capitulate to them because of her sex and her age.

I’ve recently become aware of the following quote:

“You’ll never see a u-haul behind a hearse.”

Though the quote has a specific meaning, I feel like it can be applied to the reality of climate change. The reality is that our oceans are warming and rising. The glaciers are melting. The weather is becoming more extreme. Entire species of animals are either dead or dying. All of this is due to man made climate change. But there is still time, if we are willing to do what needs to be done.

What these men don’t realize is like the u-haul that goes one way when the hearse goes the other way, they are not immune from the effects of climate change. When the oceans rise and their multi-million dollar waterfront McMansions are destroyed, they will be in same boat as the rest of us.

The sooner they realize this, the better we all will be.

Flashback Friday-A Baby Story (1998-Present)

Having a baby is one of the most transformative events in one’s life.

For the last 21 years, TLC has been telling the stories of parents bringing their children into the world in A Baby Story. The show follows the parents in their last weeks of pregnancy, during the birth itself and the first few weeks the baby’s life.

As reality shows go, A Baby Story is one of the better ones. It’s one of those reality programs that can be binged on without feeling like brain cells have been destroyed.

I recommend it.
