Killed Earth...Next Mission Mars

As I was going through some of the images of the US after the cold snap, I realised how uncanny the similarities are between these images of the US today and the images that were there in the movie The Day After Tomorrow.

Did you know that in certain places in the US, the temperatures, combined with the snow, the cold and the chilly winds, is lower than what is experienced in the planet Mars? I don't know about you, but for me, when I think about it, it is actually quite scary.

And it is not just the US that is facing severe temperatures or change in weather. The UK and some other parts of the world too have been facing severe changes. And of course it is no surprise that most of these happenings are said to be a result of the severe  damage we have done to our environment. This is all a result of our not listening, not paying heed, of thinking that the world will continue to be as we have known it, no matter what we do.

The simplest thing is, if you can't respect something and give it it's worth, you don't deserve the good times. We, as fools as we are, decided to take the best of life and nature for ourselves, and are leaving behind this deadly ball of calamities for our children. I won't say for our children's children, because honestly, right now it is quite scary to even imagine what will happen by then. What have we done???

And if this was not enough, now we are sending people out there, marking out other planets that are still untouched by 'our' touch, and attempting to set up human colonies there. I knew Earth would some day come to an I am starting to think of the entire solar system....we won't spare anything, will we?
