Today I have a great deal of fear about what the future holds for all of us. My children, your children and grandchildren, our friends and neighbours. This is not because of ISS Jihadists or bombs and terrorism. It is the rapid destruction of our green planet that concerns me. Climate change has happened. It is a fact.
This is not exaggerating. Two quick cases in point. The laws that have already been passed in the USA some few years back that protect all those companies producing vaccinations from being sued for the damages these vaccinations might cause. (And there have been deaths and injuries from vaccinations).
Another example is the so-called secret meetings being held by corporations and various country heads to get complete protection under world law from those who might restrict there profits. (One of these meetings was recently held in Ottawa,Canada.) The point here is that a number of global corporations and governments are working hand in hand to increase their control, reduce their risks and do minimal evaluation of global environmental and social impacts at their choice. They do not want you and I to have a choice about the world we will live in. They are well on the way to make us all prisoners of our own fantasies about the good life and so called democracy. The only way to retrieve our rights and a healthy and sustainable lifestyle is to act NOW. This goes for all so called Western Lands.
What must we all do? Stay awake and demand the Truth. Hold our governments and global corporations directly accountable. Change laws to support people that live on the planet. Do not allow those who see life as an exercise to funnel ever increasing amounts of money and power into fewer and fewer pockets to do it in an uncontrolled fashion. It is our planet. Yours and mine, not theirs. Where will they take their money to, Mars?
We must stop the poisoning of our world and our lives if there is to be a future for all of us. This means there is more to do than just play golf, travel, watch TV, play Xbox. smile at our grandchildren and garden. In 2010 there were 1,2 million Chinese people that died as a result of extreme air pollution. In the west of Canada and the USA, 24 % of the acid rain is caused by 3000 coal fired electricity plants in China. There is much to be done. We can do it! Start now.
The world is a closed system, just like a Space Ship. You cannot escape the poisoning we are doing.Nobody can or will. By the way, Canadians ship much of this coal from the Worlds' Largest Coal Port, Roberts' Bank. Isn't that ironic. What do you get from that? A few dollars and a poisoned world? Loss of jobs and cheap imported products that do not reflect the real costs.
And here is the final irony. Even those who make tons of money from poisoning the world will also suffer. Maybe they will be able to purchase expensive gas masks and watch the others.
SO we all have an exciting opportunity to be involved, creative and participate in having a positive impact on our lives and our world!
It is important to wake up. The truth may hurt, but avoidance of truth can kill us all.
Have a sunshine day, Marianne and Bob
