I got in a lively discussion on Global Warming the other day. More specifically Anthropogenic Global Warming.
It is a “given” that we humans have¬† the capacity to foul the Earth. It is also a given that the Earth by it’s architecture will cleanse itself.
In the civilized and educated Western world we typically endeavor to keep a clean house. Look around. PZEV vehicles are standard fare in our world and have contributed to a massive decline in hydrocarbon emissions from Automobiles. That is just one example in a huge list of things Western Culture embraces as a means of keeping air, land and ocean clean.
But we have a fly in that ointment, and ironically it is the “Global Warming” environmental chant so common in media today.
What you will find is a complete lack of understanding of the role of Globalism, Trade and Commerce among the proponents of that environmental group chant, which begins with a sort of chicken little fear mongering, that gets all of the uneducated to line up for the Kool Aide that can destroy Western Culture.
Seth Godin has this to say about a culture which has decided to stay deliberately misinformed.
Here is “The Deal” in a¬† nutshell. Our culture places a huge demand on durable goods. We used to make them here in the US. As the environmental movement acquired traction here, and a punitive method of regulatory control took effect, industry went overseas in order to avoid the additional expense and hassles that increased cost and decreased bottom line.
As a result, Western based Cities and Oceans cleaned up. Third world Cities and Oceans grew much worse.
The world is a space ship. Everything connects via atmosphere and is in turn moderated by weather. That is how the Earth maintains control.
The affect of the “Global Warmers” is actually promotion of a willful ignorance of weather, economic law, basic human greed, and puts control of hazardous effluent and exhaust into the arena of Third World entities.
Zuri Starr just returned from a tour in China, explained how dirty the place is, and how sick she became as a result of her recent time spent there. The same people who, in what I am pretty sure is a display of abject guilt, in ascribing to groups “fighting global warming” buy most of their durable goods which are MADE in China and other places with little to no ethical manufacturing process.
The net result is a huge dumbing down of Western Culture, environment and our power to effect positive and sustainable change.
It is evil.
One Volcano can spew more into the atmosphere than decades of industrial output. That is a really inconvenient truth.
Dr Ed Brenegar pointed out this very accurate essay, which explains why evil people promote ignorance, in the Servile Mind.
So let’s be honest.
It is a big world.¬† Make a difference. You matter.
I like where Elliot Minor went in their endeavor to matter, at the direction of Tyler Swain. All Along.
Kool Aide fans click here. Your people are this serious. They made this.
