Pessimistic? Perhaps slightly, but the evidence is all around us. Without real action, we can expect a New Normal within our lifetime, which is a frightening proposition.

On the subject of extinction, we strongly encourage you to visit "Everyday Extinction", an Instagram account documenting the Sixth Extinction so that you can learn how to help mitigate it:



There was a lovely waterfall
The trees were green and standing tall
The photos are our only proof
Before it all went through the roof

So now we have these memories
How beautiful it used to be
Before we chopped down all the trees
Before we poisoned all the seas

The warning signs were everywhere
and still we looked away
Though it was hazy we all were crazy
To live from day to day

Welcome to the New Normal
This is the New Normal
It's rather informal
This is our New Normal

We always thought we made the rules
We kept on burning fossil fuels
We aren't the masters anymore
We are the modern dinosaurs

We tried to run we tried to hide
But we were stuck here for the ride
The lucky ones have long since died
The rest of us just stay inside

The hurricanes kept blowing up
The cities washed away
"Ignore the fires" said the deniers
Now they'll have to pay

Welcome to the New Normal
This is the New Normal
It's rather informal
This is our New Normal

Earth was a lovely place
We were the master race
Our ending now begins
‘Cause Nature always wins

Pay attention.
Take action.
