Well, as the below link illustrates this can be seen as either encouraging or ominous. How so?
A consensus finally seems to have been reached that climate change is in fact a reality that threatens one and all yet ominous in the bickering and jockeying for position.
A proactive global enforcement agency may be the only solution capable of taking on corporations as individual nations appear to be hesitant to do so.
Such an agency would need the ability to act independently I think as when you view the UN’s track record in such things as global genocide in Rwanda and elsewhere it leaves something to be desired.
A very real danger exists for increased regional conflicts due to climate change and what will occur related to resources – within that scenario looms a not easily dismissed potential for a global conflict between the industrial nations and super powers.
What is missing in the “negotiations” is the direct participation of the people, and by this point everyone should be aware the lack of participation in policy making never bodes well – it’s time for people to begin exerting a real pressure.
Pressure in the form of demonstrations, strikes, boycotts, recall elections, national referendums, and actually casting their ballots in an intelligent manner rather than being led down the garden path of partisan rhetoric and allegiance.
There is nothing to be gained by complacency or leaving it to others – the Kardashians with their particular brand of craziness aren’t going to turn the tide nor will the latest tech gadget like a watch or laptop with a detachable screen.
This isn’t a “young man or woman’s game”, everyone has a stake in it from children to elders and everyone needs to mount up.
What is taking place is a planetary genocide at the hands of corporations and their political minions, you as an individual will either be part of the problem or part of the solution – if enough elect to sit on the sidelines then Gaia will need to draw up a bucket list.
Activism almost always is initially met with criticism and obstruction, an example judging by what I’ve read was the anti war movement during the Viet Nam war era.
The government did everything in it’s power to portray protesters as everything from communists to jobless unpatriotic freeloaders living off public assistance bent on destroying the republic, yet in time the tide began to turn as the reality set in and the ranks of protesters became inclusive of a broad spectrum of the American public resulting in a U.S withdrawal while proclaiming “peace with honor” rather than admitting ten thousands of lives had been lost to achieve a temporary stalemate at best.
The same tactic has been applied to movements like Occupy and Keystone, yet again we have witnessed a change in the demographic that lends itself to a credibility.
With all the talk of walls and deportation it is those who deny climate change, pander to corporations, and attempt to legislate regulations out of existence who need to be rounded up and deported.
Maybe they could become the first Martian colonists.
The land is the mother of all things, you can either protect your mother or join in assaulting her.
