Our cross to bear?
Earth bears scars of human destruction: astronaut
It should read “Earth BARES Scars of Human Destruction”…..that is, unless you are trying to claim that the Earth BEARS are the reason it is warmer. Pretty sure that the grizzlies didn’t have a hand in it.
Our headline was fine. There are other definitions of the word bear, among them: to suffer; endure; undergo, and to exhibit; show.
