billy barr…the snow guardian

This is not political.

It’s just a guy measuring snowfall….alone in a cabin in Colorado…filling his days with an activity that proved useful later.

I don’t know how Climate Change….or whatever you want to call it….became such a political issue.

Now, it feels like a witch hunt or something, rounding up all the people who supported the theory, refuting that there’s any truth to the idea that the planet may be going through some hard times, and that we may play a part in shaping what our ecosystem reacts to.

Of course we play a part in the whole thing.

Of course we do.

Now, we may not be the whole problem.

It may be a bunch of cows expelling methane out in a pastoral looking field who make the most impact.

The cows are oblivious, of course…..

Whether we politicize it or not, it’s happening.

How deep into it do we need to get before people say that maybe something is happening?

This guy measured snowfall…..and knows that something is different.

He’s not trying to shut down the wheels of commerce.

He just knows that it doesn’t snow like it used to.

It’s not all political.

That doesn’t make it any less sad.

I hope this doesn’t get me sent to the “Climate Change Concentration Camp”.
