Global warming, a lost war?

Are we loosing the the war against global warming?, yes…. ignorance, apathy and personal interests are winning.

The 6th mass extinction began with the last ice age and now it’s being catalyzed by man on a geometric progression. Honest scientists agree with the evidence so far. Dishonest scientists (there are a bunch who sold their soul to the devil), politicians and big economic powers deny the truth because they can not see beyond their own generation, do not want to see, do not care beyond that. Ignorance and stupidity of the people (who associate dinosaurs to cavemen) help them a lot with their behavior. The results are obvious, when the conveyor belt that regulates the temperature on far north and south of the globe will really slow down, we will have a new ice age, now with 8 to 10 billion people instead of the few millions of 10.000 years ago, with depleted resources of all kind, famine, lack of water, deserted oceans and more. Apocalyptic, yes it is,  but the scientific evidence so far and the projection based on it shows no bright future. How many honest people in the world know about this? Is there a future? Emissions control right now is like a band aid put on a terminal ill patient and since advertising controls the mind of the week, there is no doubt about what will happen.

Politicians, politicians, politicians…..

Many many years ago a friend told me: you realize what kind on a person he is when you hear him talking drunk or needing money. The simple phrase, taken in a more ample  context by considering it a metaphor, can say it all about how people react when it has to face many circumstances in life.

It is a common place the association of 3rd world countries with  iliteracy and low life expectations (not entirely truth though). The fact is that masses are dragged by politicians promises very easily, promises that normally are not fulfilled when they get into power and -sometimes- they take the Country by assault for themselves to do whatever they want, increasing powerty and making people more dependant on the government bread crumbs or left overs.

But it happens to be that humans are more alike than we can imagine and the 3rd world countries do not have the monopoly of the above. It happened before on the past century and it seems it might happen again, this time  in the northern “most advanced economy and powered country  in the world”. Only facts will tell the true, only facts will show if more educated  people can escape or can also fall for the need of money, services and a “few more things”  an amateur politician showman  is offering over there.

Ignorance can be softened or eliminated by reading, studying and learning, stupidity is forever.
