Hi. This is your nurturing home planet writing to ask if you can spare some of all that urgency you are lavishing on a uprising in Syria. I could really use some.
You see I'm more than just a ball of rock. I have some extraordinary things most of the other planets don't have. Like seas, and an atmosphere. In a lot of ways I'm like a living organism.
But my seas and atmosphere are struggling and are getting desperately sick because of you are pumping billions of tons of carbon in to my atmosphere that then goes into my seas.
I realize you wanted energy and that burning carbon seemed like the easiest way to make some. But you've known better for a while, and your species just keeps adding more carbon to my atmosphere,
and my seas,
and both are showing your scientists alarming changes.
If you keep pumping carbon to my atmosphere and seas at this rate I'll be forced to make drastic changes to accommodate all that carbon. Drastic changes your specie won't adjust well to. Drastic changes your technological civilization not to mention your nation states may not be able to survive.
So PLEASE focus a some of all that urgency you have for Syria on averting a much larger catastrophe.
