Philip DeFranco is appealing for all of us to unite and fight, regardless of the cause of Arctic melting. There is new evidence that nature and man, both, are cooking the Arctic, and causing accelerated melting of the ice. It looks like the Arctic was in for some warming up, and that we are just responsible for those few extra degrees that are going to make all the difference – between sea level staying as is versus catastrophic rising. Needless to say, the threat of waters rising has never been greater. Philip’s point is, no matter what’s the cause, we, the humans are the only ones who can do something about it.
Will we listen to Philip? I listened to him and my first reaction was, how refreshing, a call from the young to wake up. Quickly, though, my cynical side questioned the value of such plea. It seems that not a week goes by without another celebrity taking the stage, and exhorting the crowds . . .
And I go back to the need for leadership, policy, organizing, and practical solutions. In other words, the North Korelia experiment.
