Honor Thy Mother

`

“In most countries Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May, among them the USA, Canada, most European countries, Australia, New Zealand, India, China, Japan, the Philippines and South Africa.”

Hence, what better time, than this very Sunday, to speak of a related issue? Namely, the urgent need to also honor Mother Earth. By and large, the human race has been thoughtlessly, relentlessly trampling her domain with our supersized carbon footprints.

So much so… that our insatiable addiction to fossil fuel generated electricity has been releasing excessive greenhouse gasses; constantly triggering increasingly deadly, freakish rain, snow, ice, wind and fire storms.

So much so… that our empowered [mis]leaders, unintelligently and/or intentionally, have been going the drill baby drill / burn baby burn route.

Suffice to say…

“Nations have delayed curbing their fossil-fuel emissions for so long that they can no longer stop global warming from intensifying over the next 30 years, though there is still a short window to prevent the most harrowing future, a major new United Nations scientific report has concluded.”

In other words…

It’d appear that human[un]kind is ill-fated to wearing respirators, perhaps even NASA magnitude spacesuits; just so we’ll be able to schlep thru the no longer great outdoors; i.e., sans hacking up our lungs.

Seeing how science deniers are notoriously eco-unfriendly (and coronavirus allies, to boot), it’d not be inappropriate to remind / taunt them, thusly…

Since it’s already your belief that pandemic masks have been infringing upon your PERSONAL freedoms, do you actually expect the (life or death) donning of oxygen masks / tanks to make you feel any freer? And what about spacesuits? My gawd, imagine the nearly incomprehensible irony of moonsuit apparel; just so we can traipse thru our human mucked up, un-Earthly environment?

Beyond that…

How will actual flesh and blood mothers feel, in the not too distant future, if, at the split second the obstetrician cuts the umbilical cord, (s)he’ll need to instantaneously stash the wailing newborn inside an oxygen tank enhanced incubator / survival chamber?

Oh… btw…

Is it too late to say, “Happy(?) Mother’s Day ’22?”

Generally, a woman’s shoe size is smaller than a man’s.
Ditto that regarding her carbon footprint. Studies suggest
a man behaves in a less eco-friendly manner, due to his
perception of green behavior being “too feminine”. Ergo,
the best advice to men: If this shoe fits you, don’t wear it!
