I think I missed Earth Day

madThey had it. Did you hear? Actress Elizabeth Hurley -- who? -- didn't miss it. She used it to claim another 15 minutes of fame. She stripped nude while linking “habitat destruction and the illegal wildlife trade to deadly pandemics.” I can see the wisdom in that. Perhaps she was inspired by the 31 women who formed a topless human chain in London to protest against climate change on International Women’s Day. Pope Francis perked up and said he believes the coronavirus is “certainly nature’s response” to humanity’s failure to address the “partial catastrophes” wrought by human-induced climate change.

Someone named Abdi Latif Dahir decided to inform the readers of The New York Times that, "‘Instead of Coronavirus, the Hunger Will Kill Us.’ A Global Food Crisis Looms."

Here's the solution. Over at Popular Science, someone named Sandra Gutierrez G. advises that, "You should start eating bugs. Here’s how." She adds mysteriously: "‘Hakuna Matata’ isn’t the only thing you can learn from Timon and Pumbaa." I don't have time to look it up. Speaking of food, a newly discovered species of snail has been named after teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg: Craspedotropis gretathunbergae. Our ever-helpful UN got into the game, with David Beasley, head of the World Food Programme, warning that the world is at risk of widespread famines "of biblical proportions" caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Those most at risk are in 10 countries affected by conflict, economic crisis and climate change. Everyone's favorite, Joe Biden, shared his thoughts: "COVID is shining a bright light on the structural racism that plagues our laws, our institutions and our culture. And it's a wake up call, a wake up call to action to climate change overall and to climate justice." You had a question, Joe? https://youtu.be/qSQdXZSr_1E It's never too late, Joe.
