Science has yet to find a way to physically transport humans back in time, but that doesn't mean there aren't scientific ways to learn about the past. Indeed, what we are learning from the past will directly affect our future. Ice core samples in Antarctica allow us to see hundreds of thousands of years into the past and may be the key to our survival as a species.
Scientists have analyzed these ice core samples and concluded that the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere has never been as high as it has been since we began the Industrial Revolution. 100% of peer reviewed articles by climate scientists show us the Earth's atmosphere is heating up. Given that, it's tough to believe there are people out there fighting against efforts to combat climate change.
But there are.
That's why it is up to those of us who don't "believe in" science but understand it to be reality must do all we can to teach the world the facts about climate change. This Blog Action Day is one small thing each of us can do to promote awareness. Individual blogs all over the world may be quiet voices, but taken together they are a loud shout telling global citizens that it is up to all of us to take action against this threat to our species.
