Grant us peace ~ and a climate we can live with

It's been a decade since I blogged for peace in 2009.  Yesterday Mimi Lenox tracked me down to tell me it's time to do it again.  Thanks, Mimi, for the nudge and for a link to the official site of Blog4Peace.  Ten years ago, I wrote:
Bloggers from all across the globe are blogging for peace.
We speak with one voice.
One subject.
One day.

"Dona Nobis Pacem" is Latin for "Grant Us Peace."
This year, we are specifically blogging about climate, a subject that is dear to my heart.  For those who aren't convinced we are experiencing any problems with the climate, here's a link to evidence from NASA, which includes:
1.  Global Temperature Rise
2.  Warming Oceans
3.  Shrinking Ice Sheets
4.  Glacial Retreat
5.  Decreased Snow Cover
6.  Sea Level Rise
7.  Declining Arctic Sea Ice
8.  Extreme Events
9.  Ocean Acidification
There is no other planet, folks, so we need to take care of the one we have.  It's the only one the birds and the beasts have, too, and that's why I chose the illustration at the top.  They need us to be aware and to fix the mess we've made.

UPDATE:  It seems Clawdia discovered I was posting this.  (You know my cat also blogs here, right?)  She apparently saw I had set this to post at one minute past midnight, as usual, so she deliberately set her own post at exactly midnight.  Okay, go check out my cat's blog post.  She wants everyone to see more cats.  I say, if Snoopy can write about "a dark and stormy night," Clawdia can blog about climate change all she likes.  She's also an earthling, and she's purring for peace.
