At a recent Washington climate change rally,
In reality, the diminutive, corporate-media inflated rally in DC was organized by the very corporate-financier special interests that have been wreaking terrible havoc on both the human population and the environment of this planet for decades.
They are demanding action from a government that already represents their interests.
Their demands are policies, particularly
financial tax schemes
that they themselves created and are are best positioned to
benefit from while making no discernible impact on the very real
environmental threats we collectively face.
Corporations are co-opting genuine
concern for the environment to further enrich themselves and to
create global frameworks that eliminate indigenous competition over
resources they themselves are already exploiting and plan to
This collection of organizations falling under the 350.org website have also been key in pushing other establishment agendas, most notably,
65 million years ago, for example, Antarctica was a thriving ecosystem covered in temperate forests inhabited by dinosaurs. The global temperatures were higher, sea levels were higher, and carbon dioxide (CO2) levels were many times higher than they are today.
Higher temperatures, sea levels, and CO2 levels made the
planet more habitable, not less. This changed however, and to the
detriment of many species that are now extinct.
The atmosphere has been in a state of perpetual change, the biology driven by this change has likewise continuously evolved. There is no "norm" in terms of geology, biology, or climate.
The only constant is the inevitability of its constant change. The climate will change with or without us.
To ensure the survival
of what we value in terms of human society, history, and
infrastructure, as well as ecosystems and individual species we
desire to preserve, we must come up with something better than
"carbon neutrality" implemented by giving bankers yet another
derivative to trade, and energy companies a legal framework to
maintain monopolies over powering human civilization.
Could a planet face a more dire threat than being overwritten genetically, its very essence mutilated by profiteering corporations?
Strange that 350.org's "Friends & Allies" don't demand an end to profiteering wars around the planet that see tons of depleted uranium, with a half-life of billions of years, being dumped in both human and natural habitats the world over.
Strange that 350.org, and "Friends &
Allies" like WWF have in fact partnered with Fortune 500
corporations that perpetuate global monopolies, centralized
manufacturing and distribution (and profits) that encourage wasteful
supply chains, unhealthy socioeconomic trends, incur large amounts
of garbage, and require the very petroleum and CO2
producing processes they allegedly were in Washington to oppose.
More schemes, more waste, more fraud,
more abuse, while the environment continues to unravel and a host of
problems both directly and indirectly related continue to grow.
This empowers people in all levels of
society to accurately assess problems and apply local solutions.
This, coupled with modern manufacturing technology enables more to
be done on a local level, short-circuiting the petroleum intensive
WWF sponsors like Walmart couldn't live without.
3D printing, computer-controlled
manufacturing, and local hackerspaces
that encourage local entrepreneurship accelerate technological
development and solutions that allow us to live the lives we wish to
lead while doing so more efficiently in terms of energy, waste, and
These are not solutions that involve policies, taxes, and regulations, but rather technology, education, constructive, pragmatic, technical solutions that not only would make our environment more livable, but make our local economies and communities more viable and self-sufficient.
The catch is, and the reason why this isn't being done, you will notice that none of these activities require WWF sponsors like,
We all desire cleaner air, healthier food, safer water, and greener parks.
Waiting for a corporate-financier establishment to give it to us, when they themselves are the ones that have denied us of these essentials is the height of both naivety and futility.
