Hooked on a High Tide.

Hey gang, Sara here.
This week I have started reading this amazing book High Tide by Mark Lynas, it's about the Earths climate crisis. Its stunning, and depressing at the same time. Mark has traveled through hell and high water to write this book. He is full of sick facts like; "In the year 2001 Americans drove their 200 million vehicles a total of 2.7 trillion miles (equivalent to 6 million return journeys to the moon), emitting 314 million tonnes of greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into the global atmosphere." It's statements like that, that make you want to crawl into a hole and never see human life again. Then there are things like this that make you want to stick human life forms into a hole so you never have to see them again.
Best Wishes.
