Earth Matters

Just over 200 years ago the earth’s human population was 1 billion.  I believe the latest data shows that today there are just under 8 billion people on our planet.  It is estimated that in another 30 years time, how a short a time is that, in 2050, the population will have risen to nearly 10 billion. That is no time at all in the earth’s long history.

This was on my mind this morning as I watched the clouds grow dark and heavy from the kitchen window.  Snow was forecast and sure enough it arrived with the wind.  It was 08.15 AM.





By early afternoon, in the space of a few hours when it seemed that we might have a blizzard, the snow had disappeared.  How quickly the weather and the earth can change!  I hope you are able to watch this video.
