  •  The stupid, it burns - the planet (2+ / 0-)

    This really comes back to one thing: the have-mores versus everybody else.

    The people making money from cooking the planet aren't going to stop, and they're rich enough to buy and sell governments, media, etc.

    And just like the morality play of inequality, just like the war on science, they don't see themselves as the problem. They've told themselves they deserve what they have because they worked harder than everyone else, they're smarter than everyone else - so they can't possibly be the problem.

    We're looking at a planetary murder - suicide case here if these people aren't pried loose from their grip on the controls.

    "No special skill, no standard attitude, no technology, and no organization - no matter how valuable - can safely replace thought itself."
