"We may be experiencing an irreversible ecological tipping point, with forests in the West dying, to be replaced by scrub and grass," write Peter Kalmus and Natasha Stavros. "Tragically, even this year’s disasters are not the worst we can expect. In fact, heat waves and fires like what we are seeing in California, Oregon and Washington will continue to worsen as long as humanity continues to burn fossil fuels."
"Just weeks ago there was a kind of weird jubilation that even amid the heartbreak of the pandemic, the air seemed cleaner, the rivers more sparkling. Climate change couldn’t be that bad if a few weeks of shutdown showed such promise for the environment," writes Ann McFeatters. "That hope, like trees and homes in California, Oregon, Idaho and Washington, has vanished. Climate change is manmade evil."
"We can fund all the firefighters and air tankers in the world; we can pump billions of dollars into expensive water infrastructure; we can surround low-lying towns with levies and sea breaks — but we’ll never get ahead of these crises until we make the investments needed to reverse the course of climate change," writes Dianne Feinstein.
"Latinos are on the front lines of climate change. We care about it. We’re doing something about it. And candidates who want our votes must do something about it, too," writes Orson Aguilar. "Latino communities face disproportionate harm from climate change. More than half of U.S. Latinos live in states already feeling severe climate change impacts, from flooding and sea level rise in Florida, to scorching heat waves in Texas and the Southwest, to droughts and devastating wildfires in California."
All around the globe, there are ruler, presidents, and kings that are trying to rule their territory, and possibly even the whole world. But is their purpose and goal is to follow the constitutional principles of democratic government? Authoritarianism was a scary figure in the past, especially during the Holocaust.

We all have our own story and purpose in life, but sometimes we can get lost and confused about what we truly need to conquer in life. Together we can learn the importance of spending time with Jesus and the scripture. This way we will experience the truth that Jesus changes everything, especially if we love and rely on Him. In Jesus we are reset.
It's hard to believe, but one word can really help you simplify your life by focusing on just one word for your life. The simplicity of discovering for a word that God has for you makes it catalyst for life-change.

As everyone knows all over the States, and most likely all over the globe as well, is that the Black Lives Matter movement is hitting home and to heart for so many lives. From the late 1500s, black people lost their independence and freedom from Europeans when being brought from their home to America to become slaves. They still struggle to this day to get the respect they deserve. Through all the pain and trials they've gone through, they have always relied on food for comfort and strength to survive all the heartbreak and mistreatment they still suffer through to this day.
God is always good, but that doesn't mean He's always safe. This post dares readers to pray three bold prayers: search me, send me, and break me. Dare to read this, and your life will take a scary-good term.
Do you think the government is doing enough for the Black community? De-escalation is definitely what we need during all these protests and rioting because all this country need is justice. To get justice, it's important for not only the government, but also the police to listen and try to understand what the purpose is for the Black Lives Matter movement so that no unnecessary harm will occur and affect innocent people. But is it that easy?
