A week ago I was looking at the Forsythia bush shown above, blooming it full glory. This morning, Earth Day 2021, it looks like this:
Late April snow is not unusual in Vermont but climate change is so obviously upon us—and the rest of the Planet—with more and more disruptions to “normal” weather all year round.
As we can begin to see the end of the global pandemic, I more than ever appreciate the courage the Biden/Harris administration took this week to say in nine short years we WILL reduce CO2 emissions by 50% compared to 2005 levels. This is a bold move that, to be achieved, will require the support of all of us. Perhaps we can all consider some of what we’ve done without in the past year and ask “do we need that in the next nine years?”
Earth Day 2021, honoring the only home we all have, and recommitting to doing what I can to have it be a place our grandchildren and their grandchildren can live in.
