Here is the video podcast of my New Years Eve’s 2015 statement.
1) What if ROD comes to the states, and
2) If money & growing the economy wasn’t the vehicle of exchange for sustenance in our society, what would it look like?
In the past year in Hawaii, ROD destroyed ONE HALF of the Ohia Forest; that equates to water & bird endangerment there.
If that fungus only impacts indigenous Ohia trees….isn’t just a matter of time before a different ailment attacks our trees?….ooops that has already happened in other states here in America via a combination of drought & bark beetles.
With “most” humans if we personally haven’t been affected and its not in our fracking backyards, we don’t care to fix things. We have to admit we messed up and pooped in our only fishbowl of life by throwing off the delicate balance of carbon dioxide on our planet.
We CANNOT give up on controlling the man-made portion of CO2 because THAT amount is what nature cannot handle.
‘The Earth has a natural CO2 cycle that moves massive amounts of CO2 into and out of the atmosphere. The oceans and land vegetation release and absorb over 200 billion metric tons of carbon into and out of the atmosphere each year. When the cycle is balanced, atmospheric levels of CO2 remain relatively stable. Human activities are now adding about 7 billion metric tons of carbon into the atmosphere every year, which is only about 3-4% of the amount exchanged naturally. But that’s enough to knock the system out of balance, surpassing nature’s ability to take our CO2 emissions out of the atmosphere. The oceans and land vegetation are absorbing about half of our emissions; the other half remains airborne for 100 years or longer. This is what is causing the rapid buildup of CO2, a buildup that dwarfs natural fluctuations.’
For the most part, unless something DIRECTLY impacts us…we humans just don’t fracking care do we?
And even if we did care, physically those working a forty-plus hour work week just don’t have the energy to be active in important causes…which is why I thought we elected OUR representatives to do this FOR us….. but they mostly represent corporations not humans. #FAIL #REVOLTneeded
With a global economic growth mantra, we’ve failed our species and other important life on this planet.
Bernie Sanders could swipe out a good chunk of unnecessary industrial pollution by dismantling disproportionate income going to the 1% ers, Wall Street insane profiteering, corporate elitists & greedy bankers.
Putting THEM in balance would mean less natural resources needed in the mining and manufacturing sectors to feed excess profit hungry elitists. Bernie could effect less load on the environment…and Bernie could afford us more water for drinking…not wasting.
IF HE IS ELECTED and IF he doesn’t get lost in the political party gridlock of lawmaking.
Saving humans from their own extinction means using less natural resources for trinkets and focusing on growing our own food to replace jobs affected in this paradigm shift.
That in turn would protect our water from so much industrial pollution, …………….which would lead to less use of water treatment chemicals that are carcinogenic, which would decrease healthcare costs. Bernie could help jump-start the ecological & biospheric rejuvenation of land, water, and ocean systems….we’d see a ripple effect.
Our Earth is just waiting for our permission for it commence it’s healing. Please enjoy this Trophic Cascade video that has gone viral. #WolvesChangedRivers
With Hillary or Trump as president, we’d HAVE to take it to the streets for a revolution …..AND even if Bernie was elected, and even IF the Republicans cooperated in saving humanity, we’d need the other countries on board to really try this Hail Mary Pass…its a long shot I know.
In a sick way I hope our love for trinkets & fossil fuels that have compromised our endocrine systems serve to quickly and painlessly sterilize humans so our future generations do not have to suffer & despair with thirst & starvation, disease, intolerable storms & temperatures…..if the human race died off suddenly and no more carbon goes into the atmosphere, one day the biosphere could recover.
But why wish for a healthy planet if no human life will exist?
Now I understand religion’s purpose. We cannot fight nature. We can only strive to correct HUMAN nature’s selfish tendencies; then and only then will the healing pieces fall NATURALLY in place.
We are guilty & condemned for selfish ways and loving sin.
Facing our mortality (and extinction as a species here), do we work to reach eternity by reaching to our creator God and imitate HIS son, Jesus Christ, (who was a revolutionist of his day) and beg for a planetary miracle, or do we become active to restore what HE’s given us in spite of the hopelessness of the mess we’ve made?
Its literally a mortal sin if we don’t at least try.
Maybe I should’ve titled this…
What if GOD doesn’t come HERE to restore birds & our water?
