Homeland Desecration

The term global warming gives a very incomplete account of the phenomenon of climate destabilization, yet we continue to use this weak term to mean “all the @#$&(@ we’re doing to the environment and what’s happening because of it.” I suggest that a better term, with a stronger chance of reaching the audience that currently denies the phenomenon, would be homeland desecration. The earth is our homeland. To pollute it is to desecrate it. The way a patriot feels when his country is offended, the way a person of faith feels when his god is blasphemed, that’s how we should all feel when we think of the damage underway.
