Science, Bitch! (Quote Project Week #10)

Fear my botany powers, Mars!
Mars will come to fear my botany powers.
Mark Watney
The Martin by Andy Weir

This, this is what we need here on Earth. Our world is in danger and we need to fix it. No amount of prayer, wishes, or faith is going to fix it. Science, the language of life is what will save us. Eliminating the use of fossil fuels and coal burning power plants. Developing sustainable crops and food sources, that is what we need. In the words of Mark Watney, we need to “…science the shit out of this.” and we need to do it now!

If you are interested in knowing what is going on or need to catch up on how we go here, watch An Inconvenient Truth and get updated on July 28th, 2017 with An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.

Future generations may well have occasion to ask themselves, “What were our parents thinking? Why didn’t they wake up when they had a chance?” We have to hear that question from them, now.
