We must recognise that we are all in it together. We will either be all saved or all will perish together. Carpe Diem!

‘The devastating “heat dome” has caused temperatures to rise to almost 50C in Canada and has been linked to hundreds of deaths, melted power lines, buckled roads and wildfires.

‘Experts say that as the climate crisis pushes global temperatures higher, all societies – from northern Siberia to Europe, Asia to Australia – must prepare for more extreme weather events.

‘Sir David King, the former UK chief scientific adviser, said: “Nowhere is safe… who would have predicted a temperature of 48/49C in British Columbia?’: Nowhere is safe, say scientists as extreme heat causes chaos in US and Canada

'Severity of hot spell in western US underlines dangerous impact of human-caused climate disruption.'

'Excessive heat warnings remained in place across swathes of the western US on Monday after Death Valley in California registered what could prove to be the highest reliably recorded temperature on Earth.

After a cascade of record heatwaves in Canada, north-west US, northern Europe and Siberia, the severity of the hot spell has underlined the dangerous impact of human-caused climate disruption and prompted scientists to consider whether computer models may have underestimated the impacts.

The US National Weather Service measured the temperature at Furnace Creek in Death Valley on Saturday at 54.4C (130F). If confirmed, this would equal the record set at the same place last year and rival slightly higher measurements made more than 100 years ago when equipment was less precise...'- Health warnings as Death Valley scorches in 54.4C heat

We will only become safe when we rediscover and rekindle our sense of oneness with Mother Nature

The Wisdom of Mother Nature belongs to all Life.

Let be guided and inspired by Her and Save the Web of Life

'Be like the sun for grace and mercy.

Be like the night to cover others’ faults.

Be like running water for generosity.

Be like death for rage and anger.

Be like the Earth for modesty.

Appear as you are.

Be as you appear.'- Rumi

​’How wonderful that the universe is beautiful in so many places and in so many ways. …its intonations are our best tonics, if we would take them. For the universe is full of radiant suggestions. …Over and over in the butterfly we see the idea of transcendence.

In the forest we see not the inert but the aspiring. In water that departs forever and forever returns, we see eternity.’  ~ Mary Oliver, in Upstream

And now, all said and done, we have only one home, our sacred earth, and there is no option:

We Must Save Her, We Must Honour Her, Nurture and Nourish Her.

Below you will find my suggestions on how this might be achieved, by turning fire and destruction into life and beauty.
