To make things worse this cascading effect will continue to hasten. As the ice melts around our planet the oceans are less white and more blue, which means the earth absorbs more light and reflects less heat. As the ice melts it is uncovering millions of acres of frozen tundra that is releasing carbon and methane that has been stored for millions of years. We have a mere 12 years to make drastic changes before we reach the point of no return.
I am not saying the world is going to end, but the world as we know it is now changing. Our children will suffer dire droughts and great storm to the likes mankind has never faced. A republican Mayor in Texas was able to get his constituents to agree on changing to a 100% renewable energy source, and has since then created safer jobs with less hours and higher pay, lowered the electric bill of residents to less than $20/month, while lowering emissions. We can follow this brave republicans model and make Arkansas the leader in clean energy. Lets keep our Natural State the most beautiful in the nation.
