As many of you might know, multiple heat records across the globe have been beat this year. You might know, either because you’re experiencing it yourself or because you’re the kind of person who reads the news and actually stays up to date on the rest of the world, (like all of us other peasants should). In order to understand this blog post, how you know, and if you know about the current situation isn’t actually all that important.
For those people who absolutely love summer and can’t get enough of the heat it’s probably a fantastic summer for them. For me though, a Danish girl used to rain, cloudy days and a thermometer barely hitting 25° C on a regular day in summer, this is tough. And I’m not only whining because I struggle with heat above those 25° C, no I’m worried as well.
I think it’s worrying that so many countries have experienced heat waves and set new heat records, resulting in drought and a lot of wild fires. I’m worried about what this means looking at the bigger picture. Global warming is a real issue and so whenever I wake up and that day is looking to become warmer than the next all I can think about is how I fear that we’ve already gone past the point of no return.
Nothing makes me feel more powerless than nature and the climate. And even though there’s not much I can do, I still worry a lot. I’m afraid that even if we do try harder, our actions can’t be reversed and that it’ll only worsen from here until we’re living in a mashup of every possible disaster, the-world-is-ending, movie ever.
And I’m not Jake Gyllenhaal or Dwayne Johnson, so odds are I probably won’t make it.
So yeah, maybe summer is nice and all, but I’d really like it if some of the people who actually have some say and power in this world would kindly get their heads out of their asses and do something. We demand some real change, and sooner rather than later.
Or is it just me? My “we” might be a bit presumptuous but I do assume I’m not the only one who gives a shit about Earth… And also, it sounded better and less douchy than “I demand” ;P
What are your thoughts on this? Do you worry like me or do you believe the planet will adapt? I’d love to hear all of your opinions ❤
And also, let me know whether you’ve been feeling the heat this summer as well or if the weather has been totally normal where you live. I’m curious!
Como siempre, thank you so much for reading, I really appreciate it!
I still have 1 1/2 week left of my vacation and besides working I really don’t do much, so if any of you have some blogs you can recommend or blog posts you want me to check out, please leave a comment and I’ll be sure to head over 🙂
I’ll see you soon!
P.S. If anyone picked up on the little thing I tried to do with the title, then please let me know if I succeeded 😛 Please consider becoming my friend as well – I have a feeling our senses of humor will be a perfect match 😉
