Sure am glad that Trout Unlimited has acknowledged in a pretty big way that climate change is REAL in this past issue of their magazine, BUT, let us be realistic......ultimately there is no living with changing climate like we are continuing to release..... 95 % of all wild fish and animals will be gone in just a few years, we are all seeing this happening already. The changes from year to year will become more and more dramatic each passing year. Most of the human population and our farmed plants and animals will be more resilient but will ultimately succumb to the unstable climate we are releasing each day by burning more and more fossil fuels. THERE IS ONLY ONE PROPER AND ETHICAL RESPONSE..... WE ALL NEED TO START CUTTING BACK ON THE AMOUNT OF FUEL WE USE EACH DAY. Think about it.... if we all stopped traveling by airplanes, lets say, and we, as consumers, said we won't start traveling again till the industry gives us a clean, fossil fuel free way to travel....I am sure that it would not take our highly intelligent and inventive industrial leaders to give us CLEAN FOSSIL FREE TRAVEL OPTIONS. Even a little unimportant humble fishing business we have here is planning, hopefully this coming summer, to buy and put into service an electric van or car to do our courtesy transportation for our angling guests from the big hotels, that will be powered by our solar panels each day. My biggest hope for the world is that everyone else starts making this a priority in their lives too.
