Climate Change: The New VietNam...

It's 1964 and the kids KNOW they're being drafted into a war that will kill them and not their parents.

There will be a Counter Culture....

There will be protests that turn violent...

There will be Ohio States...

All of it...All of it...All of it

--- OR ----

Our government, industry, environmentalists and university engineers could all work together in good faith to solve this problem.

Tick. tick, tick...

1. I like you post, BUT,

 

You're too optimistic. The clock will run out for many things that not only the younger will want to change but many of us older folks will want to change. With the Oligarchs arming their tools. it's going to be UGLY!

2. VietNam on steroids...

And...no choice but optimism.

Pessimism debilitates.

3. And, for the cynics who say "the kids" aren't active (yet), two words:

Animal House

4. I don't know...

There will be food and water shortages. There WILL be food and water shortages that will spark wars.
There are solutions, but there are greedy people (Corporations ARE people, my friend!) who see food shortages (can you say mass starvation) as a chance to double their profit margin.

If America were to have another dust bowl...do you not see a scenario where we'd demonize some country who dodged a bullet and ramp up reasons to seize and protect their food source for "the world's best interests?"

Why do you think these greedy soul-less fuckers want to privatize municipal water in our cities? It is KNOWN how fucking dangerous fracking is...why is there a debate???? Money. Not health concerns, Money matters.

It doesn't matter if people die, the rich certainly will not die from starvation or lack of water, guaranteed. The "Contractors" we so famously use in Afghanistan and Iraq to prevent Romney snots from preserving our American superiority will be used to quell food riots. Soon you'll see corporate names on our dams. Not Grand Coulee dam in Washington, but Monsanto international water reclamation project...

You see, if you are filthy fucking rich beyond insane greed, and you do not care, what is the limit you need to reach when one asks oneself: "Have I gone too far?". Greed, pure and simple, you do not care that your greed and your fellow corporation brotherhood's greed is actually damaging the planet, why bother to change what is making you so fucking rich?

You'll be dead and it really doesn't matter if you've ruined the planet, you will be dead. they care only about their comfort while they are breathing.

You can kill off the bees, you frack and make faucet water flammable, you can have legislatures and judges allow you to sue a farmer if he plants a second year from seeds produced by GMO plants you have a patent on. you can take his land and destroy him...for the all mighty dollar.

Fuck the earth, another million dollars can be shoved up Romney's left nostril...Rand Paul's privileged butt can hold another 10 million bucks, Cantor, Turtle man, Newtered, they don't care, they have theirs and all their ranting and showboating is simply to preserve and protect what they have. Fuck us, fuck the earth. We don't count, Earth doesn't count. Money counts.

this time there will be no rescue ships or even ports to land.
