Change The World: More Action, Less Talk

Climate Change, American History, KFC, Football and an Air Force Sergeant

I remember way back in middle school, I had to watch Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth. It was in my 8th-grade physical science class. My teacher made us take notes.

The only thing I can remember about it was that Al Gore presented a very long line graph of how global temperatures were rising. And he spoke to his audience condescendingly. Demanding action RIGHT NOW.

Do I think that climate change is happening? 

My short answer is yes. It's been changing for thousands of years.

But the rhetoric that activists like Greta Springer are pushing is that we need to spend more time lecturing, yelling and screaming and creating hysteria instead of coming up with solutions.

And realistically, what can humans do to stop an entire planet from heating without hurting other humans? 

Check out this article from Reason. Shikha Dalmia is calling for innovators to call for cost-efficient and sustainable solutions for climate change. 

Another problem I have with this rhetoric is that people are blamed for global warming to the point of demonization. 

There are even calls for people to have fewer babies because it's bad for the environment. 

Greta Springer and AOC, I'm looking at you.

As you all know, I am a Christian. I believe that God created the Earth. He appointed humanity to have dominion and be good stewards of His creation. See Genesis 1:26-28.

God created humans to be representatives of Him to His creation and each other. 

We should be discovering, creating and innovating to the benefit of humanity not to the detriment. 

There's a great article on this topic from The Bible Project here.

I've always believed that it is important for Americans to know their country's history. I have discovered in my research and study over the years on various topics that history tends to repeat itself. Especially when it comes to politics and social issues. I'm so glad that Etgar 36 is working to provide students with the tools they need to think critically about America's founding and engage in discussions with others about issues facing the nation today.


KFC Gifts New Car To Struggling Employee.

Lachance, a single mom to her 8-year-old son, had been working at the KFC in Salem for a year, and walking 3 miles each way to get to the fast-food restaurant. Her dedication to the position is what inspired her boss to put Lachance up for the special award, which honors employees who go above and beyond at work.

Air Force Sergeant Saves Choking Baby On His Way To Receive An Award.

The Facebook post described O’Brien’s actions, saying, “On his flight back to the states from Okinawa last weekend for the AFA Convention to be recognized, an infant starts choking and stops breathing. Our man OB leaps into action, clears the breathing passage, resuscitates the kid, hands him back to the parents, and then goes on about his business.”

This soldier is on a roll! Get a few awards, go save a baby, get a few more awards. This is a man with integrity, he doesn't let a few awards go to head and prevent him from doing a good deed that won't get him anything. To me, simply being willing to put on a uniform and fight and possibly die for your country is heroic enough! God bless the men and women of the United States Armed Forces!
