What’s happening to the Great Salt Lake is pretty bad. But what [is] really scary about the report is what the lack of an effective response to the lake’s crisis says about our ability to respond to the larger, indeed existential threat of climate change.
If you aren’t terrified by the threat posed by rising levels of greenhouse gases, you aren’t paying attention — which, sadly, many people aren’t. And those who are or should be aware of that threat but stand in the way of action for the sake of short-term profits or political expediency are, in a real sense, betraying humanity.
There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
Oh when it's time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all
