    1. I believe you just stated two important words-
      be aware
      it concerns me that humanity in the 21st century could lose sight of our ties with nature and become diminished in our understanding of how life is dependent on nature’s cycles and systems… a tragic and fatal mistake.

    1. Thank you for taking notice and sharing your recognition of a need upon which humanity should unite… Awareness is a first step.

      The effects of climate change are becoming evident here. Big concerns are currently being generated by evidence of ocean acidification caused by upwelling; and by mass die-off of keystone species- ochre sea stars.
