Jason Mraz answered a dozen questions from fans on his blog at MySpace (@jasonmraz) on Monday (October 5), including one asking if he had a time machine, where would he go and explore. The San Diego based singer songwriter responded:
Time machines are depressing because they don’t exist.
Considering the light years of existence that earth has seen, everything is essentially behind us. We are standing in the future. This is a place where hindsight is 20/20. Knowing what I know I might go back to when plastics were introduced and suggest we not use it for one-time use items. Things like plastic bags and plastic bottles are used and refused only moments after purchase. Every piece of plastic that has ever been created is STILL here on earth and it’s a huge disaster that doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
A Being Love Tip: Keep some re-usable bags in your car at all times for all shopping purposes. Demonstrate mindfulness and show other shoppers how easy and how free you are from the dependency of plastics.
Having a time machine would be beneficial in the climate crisis to assess the real situation ahead of us. Will the earth freeze before it heats? Will the seas rise in dramatic levels? Will California finally become it’s own island as a result? Some science seems to suggest that by the year 2050 we will be out of resources. If we keep consuming the way we do, dependent on oil for EVERYTHING, the planet will fix the imbalance itself and no longer support human life.
