something to think about when you catch yourself worrying about how messy your room is. looks like we need to shift our perceptions if we’re going to stick around here on earth.
i heard an interesting talk about global warming, too. remember an inconvenient truth? and how the data went back a couple hundred years? well, some scientists got together to gather climate data from the deepest ice, before it melts. their data shows co2 and temperature levels from thousands of years ago. so, while an inconvenient truth did a great job of bringing the fact that we need to change our habits into people’s living rooms, it pinned the cause of warming on human activity. the ice tells a different story: we’re entering a cyclical period of warming. sure, humans have destroyed much of our habitat. but we didn’t make the oceans rise. we need to get over trying to “stop” global warming, and start working together to survive global warming.
I reposted instead of reblogged (from pipperipembo) to format the infograph to make the images & text readable/aesthetically approachable from the dashboard.
