Super-Typhoon Haiyan and Climate Change

You can't prove that this or that storm was caused by climate change. But you can be sure that if human-induced climate change is true - and 97% of scientists agree it is - there will be more storms like Haiyan in the years to come.

To deny climate change is to claim that people can spew pollutants into the air with no consequences. That's like claiming that you can sow without reaping.

We have a moral obligation to care for this beautiful earth, a duty that is intensified by the fact that the poorest people in the world will suffer the most from the effects of a warming world.

I was moved by this short video of a speech by Naderev "Yeb" Sano. I hope you'll take a moment to watch it - and that you'll whisper a silent prayer dedicating yourself more deeply to the cause of caring for our earth - which means changing the way we human beings are harming it.
