Global warming is the long term heating of the Earth’s climate system observed since the pre-industrial periods ( between 1850-and 1900) due to human activities, primarily fossil fuel burning, which increases heat-trapping greenhouse gas levels in Earth’s atmosphere. (Wikipedia)

Capricorn Science, the Art of Living Blog plans to get immersed in environmental issues during the upcoming 2020. In the meantime, I urge you to do some research and reading on this subject. That styrofoam plate you eat on will take 100 years to degrade into the soil of this Earth. It has already been introduced or incorporated into our food chain at molecular levels. Plastic is now a part of your and my food. All those lovely Christmas lights contribute to heating up a planet burning to death. The only explanation I can come up with is ignorance, cognitive dissonance or just plain selfishness. Wash your plate. Turn off the light. We are not the only inhabitants on this planet and we need to cut everyone else a break. This is not a subject that can we soft and cuddly, we are murdering the planet. Stop this behaviour now.
