A tiny item in the Cincinnati Post on the 15th…from Beijing: Rats blamed on warmth.
Northwestern China – Xinjiang – which means it’s near my beloved Tibet: Rats are threatening an estimated 5 million acres of pastureland in Altay, about 20 percent of the total. The average temperature this past winter was 3.6 to 7.2 degrees Fahrenheit above normal, and snow in the Altay mountains (Mongolia) shrank by at least one foot.
It’s amazing how much damage is already being done by global warming, isn’t it? And such unintended, unexpected harms coming to pass.
We clearly need to meditate and visualize powerfully, work hard, donate generously. And vote very wisely – so as to have a livable planet for our 7th generation.
