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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
