A Few Thoughts for Mother Earth on Mother’s Day

A Brief Commentary by Derek Jones, a resident of Niagara Falls, Ontario and Friend of Thundering Waters Forest

As if there’s not enough to worry about these days.

Unfortunately a theory/prediction I made around a month ago, once I started seeing stories of cleaner air around the globe due to decreased Human activity, seems to be manifesting before our eyes.

I predicted that the abrupt shift and significant decrease in Human activity would have a sudden jarring effect on Global Climate. You’ve probably seen the news stories of how people from India can see the Himalayas for the first time many years.

What we’re not seeing, and I don’t see being reported, is how the sudden shift is likely to affect Global Climate.

Consider that climate systems had been slowly changing over the years, but exist with relatively stable equilibrium. Then all of a sudden, we see an almost instant enormous reduction of carbon and pollution entering the atmosphere globally.

I believe this may have tipped what was already a fragile balance of Global Climate. Will we still see snow in June?

Or is it sheer coincidence? That’s the question. Unfortunately I don’t see any Science being done on this.

I was out in my backyard a while ago, and I could not see the Forest because the snow was coming down so heavy. Having this occur once or twice this time of year could lean towards coincidence. But that’s the fifth time that’s happened in the last couple of weeks. Polar Vortex in May? WTF.

Mother Earth is upset, literally. Happy Mother’s Day.

  • Let’s make a collective pledge on this Mother’s Day, for the sake of Mother Earth, that we will save places like the Thundering Waters Forest in Niagara Falls, Ontario for current and future generations. Our health and the health of the planet depends on protecting and preserving what are left of places like this.
