Many climate change deniers espouse that our climate has cyclical patterns and therefore we are simply in a warming cycle that will change back to what we've know some time in the near future. This understanding is wrong in so many ways! For one... it's not based on math or science in any way shape or form. For two... those clinging to these notions are not getting involved in any actions that will help humanity deal with the problems we have created!
I've never understood how anyone could believe that humans have no affect on our world. It took nearly 100 000 generations of humans (from our birth until the year 1945) to reach a population of 2 billion people. Since that time we have doubled our population twice and we are in the process of doubling our population once again. To accommodate our survival, we have cut down most of the Earth's forests, we've over fished our oceans and destroyed precious coral reefs as we continue to pave our planet in asphalt and concrete! I find it impossible to understand how anyone can deny that our lifestyles that have concentrated CO2 into our atmosphere to levels NEVER before seen can believe that humans activity is outside of any climate equation.
I recently stumbled upon this very easy to understand and very detailed video that explains the non-cyclical nature of ice ages and how they ALL begin and end due to levels of CO2 in our atmosphere... and it's just a little over 13 minutes in length! Impressive!!!
Bookmark this video and share it with those who continue to cling to foolish notions that hinder them from taking the needed actions to ensure humanity's survival!!!

Devon... like most young kids... loves watching Youtubers on TV or his tablet to start his day. As a parent, I can attest to the facts that he actually learns some interesting things and the videos are highly entertaining!
Last Christmas, I found a fun marble game called Gravitrax. You have lots of pieces that lock together and you build courses for your marble(s) to follow. Devon mentioned to me one day... in January... after we had been building a new course... and after he had finished a morning of watching Gravitrax Youtubers of TV, that he'd like to be a Youtuber and show off his Gravitrax courses! Since I've been making videos for many years... and since I thought that this would be a fun learning experience... I agreed... and we began our journey...
We are just a month or two away from releasing our series of Gravitrax videos. We've been making these since January and we are now completing the editing for the last few videos in the series we have created!
This is just a heads up...
Coming soon to this webpage will be links to these videos! I'd like to encourage all of you to check them out... give a 'like' and make Devon feel like a million bucks by subscribing to the channel!!!

Beginning of February
Magic Moment - Mid February
And then the work continued....
One day, I was sorting out puzzle pieces from a used puzzle I had just bought for $1.00 and I noticed something interesting! I called Devon over to show him and explain what I was going to work on next...
I showed Devon how some of the puzzle pieces I was sorting out, had two colours on them. The first ones I found had both yellow and white colours. I told him that we can glue these pieces to the art just as they are - we didn't need to separate the colours. So, we found areas where the sun's ray was touching an area where the cloud is and we glued them on!
The first few times we did this we were using yellow and white puzzle pieces... but, a short while later, we found some blue and white pieces, as well!!! I wonder if viewers of this art will ever notice this very small detail???
I mentioned earlier that I'm patiently waiting for this puzzle to get completed!!!! As soon as it's done I'll be able to get back into the sky part of the puzzle artwork! Hurry up, you two!!!!! LOL!!!!
For the last two weeks, Devon and I have been working very diligently on this art project!

This is where we left off...
From the end of May until the end of July, I found myself in a very negative situation!!! This situation was so oppressing that I decided to demonstrate to Devon and others, how important it is to make a stand against people who treat you poorly by creating a Youtube video to share the story! To date, all of my Youtube videos have been filled with positive and inspiring messages, so it was very different for me to create a video of protest! Devon helped me, quite a bit, and together we were able to share our story with a great many people! Please enjoy this video link.... it is a rather hilarious video....
I mentioned in my last entry that working on this art in a more systematic way should see the work getting done more quickly! And this proves it! Just a few days after my last entry, you can see that quite a bit of the grass area has been completed!
