So.... Climate Change seems to be the hot topic around the world at the moment. That and the numerous affairs Tiger Woods seems to have had in the past decade... but that is just too boring to even mention.
I may have indicated my lax attitude toward "saving" the environment in the past. Much to my mother's chagrin, I revel in paper plates (still with the guilt, though) and only recycle because the nazi government here provide itty bitty waste bins and recycle garbage bins that are larger than mother earth herself.
Stephanie owned up to being an earth killer a month ago. I am sure if you scroll down in the comments of that same post, DeNae takes pride in driving her gas guzzling beast to the next-door-neighbour's party (or I could just be projecting my own image of DeNae on to you all). My dear friend MareeRose's blog has become the little voice that comes up every so often to remind me that I do have other options besides disposable cutlery.
As you well know, I am a firm believer that there is more to come after this life. Plenty of rewards for the good people of the earth, etc. And as I sat on my wonderfully reupholstered dining chairs today reading yet another news article about climate change and what needed to be done before the earth and all its inhabitants died, I realised two things and wondered a third.
1. I am not all too panicked at the prospect of the demise of the earth.
2. I realise that this makes me kind of a hypocrite. Believing that God made this beautiful Earth just for me and then not caring one whit what happens to this wonderful gift (kind of makes you sick, doesn't it)
3. I wonder if there are more God fearing folk kind of banking on the second coming of Christ to fix all the environmental issues that we have OR are there more of them trying to treat the earth the way it should be treated?
A simplistic analysis of my own pondering, but one I would be interested in hearing your own thoughts on.
