Is it possible it is going to all bond now and produce sense? The relentless sweltering summer heat, heavy on 60 % of the nation. The towns ravaged by monster tornadoes. The winters with extraordinary snow that becomes raging runoffs; the droughts and floods that affect our food production. Is there a one who can seriously deny coffee? Seriously, I want a subscriber base. If so, I don't believe they paid attention since a child or possibly they may be repressing their memories, which is certainly not the best way I remember it.
If the science doesn't allow you to be believe surely the chaos is convincing. And even if all you have time for is work and sleep, regarding the price of food, energy, insurance, getting larger? That's a reality. The two inches in 30-minute rainstorms, which we've got had locally, produce lightening and wind that burns down houses and takes down our most stately shade trees. Does it add up when the tree visits the car or house, or should there be no longer shade permitting the children to remain the yard plus they receive third degree burns from your playground slide? I don't understand that. The insect infected, downed and logged trees don't absorb the carbon when they did, but they can be just trees and you could crank up the environment conditioning and turn into inside. This is America why is this so? Your individual rights have been in the constitution and also by God that has comfort.
The shattering fact in my opinion is that folk have no involvement in what makes sense and no desire for the truth; or should I say so some are so cock-sure they know the facts. This is truth quite separate from education or investigation and often wrapped up inside 'money equals brains' mentality. This view was beautifully illustrated by among my daughter's college friends as part of his summation of his side of your political discussion with'.'if you're so smart, why shouldn't you be rich'?
There is a whole generation of entitled individuals, fattened on jobs that earned a ton of money despite no knowledge and little effort, apart from socialibility and coming to the right place on the right time, Despite producing nothing and consuming with abandon these people are certainly not contrite, they can be bitter. They believe there is a right for the continuation on this money, a straight away to spend and employ resources and so they 'conger up' a political view that supports their to certainly easy money, regardless of snow globe economy fantasy that had been created for it to occur, and whatever it means in the future. They believe the economy can and may expand forever.
Cars will be more important compared to the highways they drive on, and houses will be more important versus the neighborhoods they stay at home. Taxes represent to people an effort to take 'hard' earned money, they being apparently uneducated to where roads and schools along with the virtual order in their civilization originates from. Lack of taxes cracks the veneer of prosperity as visibly as rust and pot holes, so that as invisibly as children who can't or won't read, or make arithmetic calculations much less know or vote their interests. It's a license. not an education should be a realtor or even a car salesman.
A selfish, individual over society, disguised as individual over government, attitude can certainly make the world a painful, polluted and unholy destination to live.
And that's virtually where were. Is it possible for doing this to be the better choice?
The car- ahh- the auto. The position the poor can seem middle class plus the middle class can seem wealthy. You can drive your financial statement outside. The car may be the coarse, indelible meaning of status. Small cars are for brand spanking new immigrants or teenage drivers or socialists. Cars are deemed to wish comfort at any cost. They must control of the mountain passes and spare your kids the embarrassment old. For these cars we've got the straight away to cheap gas. No one can make us get free from our cars and walk.
Our public lands aren't almost experiencing untrammeled beauty and wildlife the lands also needs to be open to your internal combustion contrivance around. Owning and the worry, a snowmobile, a4- wheeler a jet ski, is with the bill of rights. Somewhere missing may be the bill of responsibilities. Also missing is an desire for what is sensible, sustainable. I guess the question towards the masters from the universe the 2% who've corralled 60% with all the different money is. If you're so rich, why shouldn't you be smart?
What is missing is a superb sports analogy to go into detail the material inequity. It's during the middle of an football game, , they switched to hockey. Not only do you lack skates there's no room to suit your needs on the team. The game went from 11 to players. Only the 6 players are financed with hockey rink and gear to the game And the experience is outside of town. You're odd man out.
But although the rich were smart enough to rig the sport to gain the treasure, they've fowled the nest for their own reasons as well as us and also this is everyone's most immediate problem. You can't eat, drink or breath money. Some of that ozone that drifts around Pinedale Wyoming may just make it to Dick Cheney's house in Jackson. The banker while using home in La Jolla has become bombarded with radiation from Fukishima and has now bought a house that is to be underwater, literally, in made years. He can turn to Florida but his seafood will probably be contaminated with oil and dispersants. It's too hot being outside so from his air-conditioned family area he can watch dead baby dolphins wash up for the beach. Oil and gas pipelines, scoured by river debris, break and ruin the fly fishing for your natural gas 'wild-catter' that fought every proposed beautiful, water and pipe line regulation, and flaunted others, to create his fortune.
It reminds me on the Ingmar Bergman film, 'The Seventh Seal', which takes place in Europe through the plague. In an endeavor to prevent the Black Death the nobility of Europe retreat to barricade themselves of their castles. The rats in addition to their fleas were ready and looking forward to them. Bergman's survivors were roaming gypsies that stop the plague since they can be mobile and free'but naturally, equally ignorant with the cause with the death because nobles.
Ignorance, community . has it's bliss, gets one nowhere within our world. The meek may yet inherit planet earth, nevertheless they may not desire to. The mainstream media, shows us people starving in Somalia, shows us the tornados, the oil spills, the floods, the nuclear power plant meltdowns, and not the people still in tents or trailers, not time frame shrimp catches it shows the catastrophe, yet not the results. Sometimes the outcome are not even measured just as Fukishima. Have we have you ever heard about the radiation that drifted using the jet stream straight for the West coast and after that on being caught by my very own west side from the Rockies; radiation that insinuates itself into every living thing. Sometimes the photo just fades from view like Joplin or Detroit or New Orleans or Minot. There are no patterns here it suggests; just a silly streak of bad luck; without any effect, no cause; No wipeout of the earths, nor deficiency of that' anti-capitalist regulation'. No recognition of corporate management of environmental laws that can safe guard the resources we have to live; no knowning that 'if you poison the world planet earth will poison you'. Will a tree must drop in your head for doing this to 'hit home'?
All of us ought to come to grips with this excessive, website entitled consumption; The most complete blinders to the are about the Eastern seaboard, This area was fortunate to possess its oil and gas and coal extracted west on the Mississippi, for your most part, until the propane discovery inside an area supplying the normal water to New York City. It is exciting to discover the extraction method know as fracking produce a blip around the environmental radar. Otherwise the catastrophes of flood, or drought or tornado or hurricane are from sight and soon beyond mind until they're on your head. Hopefully simple fact of local aging nuclear power plants, with on-site waste storage, are pause for thought after Fukishima along with the floods in Missouri I'm sure the East Coast's time may come as there are ultimately no winners in the java prices lottery.
I am particularly serious about one fantasy that we now have been managing, and wishing with all of our heart were true. Cheap clean energy. There is not any such thing regardless of how many ads you observe on TV. There is clean energy, however it is not cheap. Wind and solar require capital investment beforehand. Our government familiar with invest in this type of thing, but will also to being crippled by politics, we're crippled by war debt and our stupid decision to bail out rich folks. There is reasonable[ish] strength that is cheap for the pump, in comparison to your rest of the earth. This we've got subsidized through regulations, cheap leases, nonexistent environmental regulation; it really is becoming extremely expensive due to its effect on climatic change but, maddeningly, there is absolutely no mental connection to those 'externalized' costs we're also beginning to spend the money for inability might cost us our very lives. The gas industry truly does offer a less carbon emitting fuel, but producers refuse to create any efforts to lessen it's carbon footprint setting it up OUT in the ground. It flares and fracks when needed, allowing methane and open pits of benzene along with other volatile organic compounds to off-gas into the environment. A drilling site is undoubtedly an ugly, smelly dangerous place. They don't call employees rough necks for nothing. And let's face it we will live to regret the countless gallons of water that is rendered unusable by utilization in drilling. Don't expect anything sensible through the extraction industry, or politicians. I could embark on but why bother Get ready for more chaos.
When a tree falls from the forest and there isn't a one there to listen for it, does it create a sound?
When a tree falls with your head, does anybody wonder why?
