Storm is coming...

Mother nature dwarfs a BC Ferry on its way to the mainland...
A dramatic and huge cloud hangs over a BC ferry...
If you look carefully you can see a British Columbia ferry capable of carrying 370 cars and 2100 people on the left hand side of this image. It's dwarfed by the dramatic towering cumulus cloud overhead.

Sometimes we overlook the scale of nature at our peril. For example, some people still think climate change isn't happening. They look around their world, and are convinced that mankind cannot be affecting the environment.

But all the life on this planet -- from the deepest ocean to the highest mountain -- is just a thin film covering a ball of rock. Take a basketball and cover it with two coats of blue paint. That thin film of paint would accurately represent the scale of our biosphere on this planet.
