This post is intended to share images on Earth Day 2022 of north central Alberta, near to where my family and I currently live.
Driving west into the Canadian Rockies on Earth Day 2022. A sample of the fabulous photos I took. Driving that distance seems to contradict the observance of Earth Day. What did you do for Earth Day?
We are very fortunate to live in a part of the world where things are relatively stable and safe. By ‘things’ I mean environment, government and the physical world around us. Our great fortune provides the ‘blinkers’ that prevent us from identifying and acting on what needs to be done.
We are more transparent than most countries in how we address climate change and our role in controlling it. Our responses aren’t robust enough. We need to do more!
More so now than ever. We are a relatively small country by population (35 million) but we are stewards to an important part of the physical world. We need to get on with saving the planet and stop putting our economic woes first.
Clean technologies are a necessary part of the near future. I am disappointed that an alternative to fossil fuel generated power didn’t power the vehicle we drove west, making me feel a bit like a hypocrite.
