From raging fires to drought. I think this is only the beginning. The terrible fire that started in Fort Mcmurray is still burning and is now in Alberta and Fort Saskatchewan which is the province next door. I have seen wild fires before but never this big and for not as long. Natural? Or the beginning of something terrible that us humans have created? Of course I don’t need to ask myself this question but maybe other people do.
Many animals and people have lost their homes. How many more will suffer? Watching people driving through the Fort Mcmurray fires was one of the scariest things I’d ever seen. If that would’ve been me I would’ve thought that my number was up! On one of the dash cam videos it does look like a deer or something is running out of the burning forest. You have to look carefully but I’m pretty sure I can see the poor thing running for its life. I’m so glad no one was killed but I also know that the animals were not so lucky. I’m thinking sadly this is something we’ll see more often in the future. It’s only going to get hotter and hotter.
I’m also thinking that when a thunderstorm finally does hit Alberta it will be a HUGE one. I can’t say that I’m looking forward to that thunderstorm. I’m just imagining this giant storm with lots of lighting….
I heard in the future there might be wars over drinking water and possibly food. Global warming doesn’t just affect the weather it does have a massive affect on the food and water we rely on. Water is cheap? In the future this might not be the case. It might be high in value because it’s harder to come across. So just think about that the next time you drink a glass of water. It’s highly possible that, that simple glass is so precious in the future.
We’re seeing scary changes here and it doesn’t look like that’s going to change anytime soon.
