As I said, the reset will be global.
Climate Change is apparently too abstract for the human race at large to wrap their heads around.
“You almost couldn’t design a problem that is a worse fit with our underlying psychology,” says Anthony Leiserowitz, director of the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication.
Only a very small portion of the global public is aware that global coal consumption has advanced by over 50% in the past decade.
And so our fate appears to be sealed as long as Humans continue to behave as the punch-drunk creatures they have been since the onset of the Industrial Age and the discovery of fossil fuels, the addiction to which there is no cure. This beast will go down violently. We’re Dodo birds with nukes.
“Environmental degradation proceeds apace as we gleefully trade in living soil for smart phones, clean air for fast computers, potable water for high-definition televisions, healthy food for industrial poison, contentment for exhilaration, decent human communities for hierarchical death camps, and life for death. All the while, we take truth-tellers to task while looking to corrupt governments for leadership. Truth is treason in an empire of lies, so we don’t protest governments that spy on their citizens and then kill them.”
~ Guy McPherson
“…people today have no better grasp of the consequences of their actions than superstitious and unscientific people centuries ago. Modern technological man is just as easily bamboozled by propaganda as ancient man was by superstition and ignorance.”
~ Dr. Paul Craig Roberts
“Evolutionary deadends are much more common in the tree of life than many people realize. Extinction is the most general rule of the game.”
~ George Mobus
A small gem of a post with really fascinating links, thanks.
