Climate Catastrophe Cat Vid of the Week

July 21, 2019

Relevant because the suffering of animals under climate change is and will be intense. Perhaps there are people unmoved by human suffering who will respond to the pain of animals.

    Cats have nine lives and mystical powers – how did Vulcan survive that trauma ?

    The saddest images of effected animals I’ve seen, were burnt/charred sheep in wildfires in Australia, brought a tear or two to my eyes.

    If animals don’t get people thinking, maybe the thought of their luxury dream home by the sea being claimed by the sea, in the near future, will break their hearts (or wallets) or both.

    “If your coastal home could be threatened by flooding 80 years from now, would you want to know?”

      Yeah. Perhaps people might think a bit harder if they learn that one important aspect of wildfire in Australia – and I presume in other similar pastoral regions – is that emergency services have to keep a stock of ammunition for the guns used by vets, farmers, park rangers and emergency personnel to kill all those not-quite-dead-yet injured livestock and other animals left behind after the fire has passed.

      It’s pretty grim work. No heroism like firefighters, just do the job and hope you end all that suffering as quickly as possible.

    A moving story—-Vulcan nearly didn’t make it but now has found his place.

    Most of the millions of animals being killed by climate change every day are not as cute and photogenic as cats and dogs—too bad, since they will get little attention from humans.
