BRADBERRY: Enough pontificating, climate change is REAL!

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — As a Great Lake city, Niagara Falls will be participating in the Municipal Adaptation and Resiliency Service (MARS), sharing information with other Great Lakes cities about damage caused by severe storms by helping to build a database and other information that might help us as well as our cohorts survive, if not avoid the consequences of more frequent, more severe storms.

For now, the inconvenience of flooded streets and basements pales in comparison to the challenges that others are already facing around the world.

Severe storms in the form of drought as well as typhoons, hurricanes and tornadoes are threatening to wipe out crops and entire communities straining governmental as well as non-governmental relief efforts to the breaking point in some cases.

While there may be plenty of room in and around the tracks for debate about the exact precise causes in some cases, there is neither time, nor room where we’re standing, dead center on the tracks, for foolish discussion about the reality of what is taking place.

Pay closer attention to the discussion, get informed; demand appropriate action by the policymakers now, before its too late!

Climate change is REAL ... its time to act like it!
