About the Amazon and the climate crisis
Reading something like this makes me really sad: The Amazon now emits more CO2 than it absorbs – due to deforestation.
As a citizen of an industrialized country, I’m actually partly to blame for all this misery. But I do my best: I eat meat really rarely (no more than once a month), I recently sold my car, and I make sure to keep my material consumption as low as possible.
But I still see the world getting closer and closer to the abyss. The effects of the climate crisis are getting bigger and bigger, just recently there were severe floods in Germany.
A few people will probably manage to escape from Earth to Mars in time, but for the remaining 99.99999%, life on Earth is getting more and more horrible. Unless something really changes, a major rethinking and a system transformation takes place.
A German proverb: “Die Hoffnung stirbt zuletzt.” (Hope dies last.)
