I agree, the closer humans live to nature, the more these changes are obvious, this is not even taking into account the science. This is an energy universe, and it is out of balance in this little corner of the universe. Energy will seek a balance, with or without us.
What gives me cause for optimism, is that there is a change in the energy and consciousness of the planet and the beings that are part of this energy.
There will be those that are left behind as they cling to the perception that they can pollute with impunity. They are wrong.
