Planet being abused

The oceans are overfished, mono-farms kill butterflies, insects and bees, and provide us with food which has no taste

ot only does Premier Christy Clark not accept how our planet reacts to its warming but she does not stray from her goal of getting more LNG out of the ground. What this does to global warming, poisoning our ground water and endangering farmers and their livestock, and even creating earthquakes,the cost of it will be enormous.

We have experienced catastrophic rain, more fires than ever before and still, she stays her course. Water levels are rising and the number of ecological migrants will be like nothing we have ever experienced. Nature is protesting but the people in charge do not listen.

We are abusing our planet and this is the only one we have. The oceans are overfished, mono-farms kill butterflies, insects and bees, and provide us with food which has no taste. We have no idea what genetically altered food will do to us in the long run, but our governments do nothing to protect us.

We are at the tipping point now and not in 2050. Premier Clark has a son and might be a grandmother one day. Can she sleep with good conscience? Even her family will be affected.
