So, planet erf is in danger.  We have recently produced too much carbon, and that has chocked out how the planet was able to maintain habitable conditions.  The idea that this crisis is of our own making can't be denied by any sane person with the ability to review the statistics that scientists from all of the world have provided.  It's from us.
We can still reverse the man made error.  We can.    

We could, if we were to fully understand how serious the damage will be, and followed the recommendations from scientists, to either drastically reduce the damage we continue to cause, or to go even further, and pull out all the stops to reverse the damage, and allow the planet time to repair itself.  

Here is why we won't.  Here is why our planet is pretty much going to continue to slide from what we now have to what scientists have predicted will happen with warmer oceans, and melted ice caps, flooded contents, cities flooded, populations forced to relocate, reduced capability to produce needed agriculture, way hot summers, cold, cold winters, more radical hurricanes, bigger tornadoes, and so on.  

We are getting a pretty good taste of climate change now.  We are ahead of schedule from what the scientists have originally predicted.  It's bad news.  It's bad, and we have decided not to do anything about it.  Why?  Who is stopping this ?

There are several theories.  One being the largest corporations on the planet, are also part of the problem, and they don't want to end their party, no matter what.  They have unlimited influence on those we elect, and they can and do choose what these elected officials can support, and can't support.   There are so many examples.  Who / What corporation

WE could have done something huge 20 years ago, but one large corporation felt their revenue was threatened, and their influence, reached out to anybody connected with the production of electric cars, and ended what could have been a major step in reversing the damage. The EV-1 was the Prius of the 90's.  The oil companies forced GM to not only stop production, but to destroy every single car they produced. ( about 25 are still around.)  Can you begin to imagine what could have been if large cities all over the planet were using 35% to 55 % Gas free cars ?  That alone could have been enough to slow down the damage that we are seeing today.  

The elected people are safe from any consequences that matter, period.  The people that sit on the upper levels of the biggest causes of climate change will continue to put profit over reducing climate change, and they will continue to live like kings, free from any consequences, for what we all understand to be of epic disaster to the future generations.  We allow it.  We allow those in all governments to do as told, not to do whats so urgently needed.  We allow Religion to be used as a tool, to basically  brainwash people into thinking climate change isn't man made, and we don't need to reverse the damage, God will be there.

Why do we allow so few people, who have the ability to save the planet so millions of people can continue to survive and live as we know it today at least.  We know at least locally, who the Republicans are, that have for the past 10 years, 20 years denied any truth to climate change, being real, being man made, and the need to do something drastic, even though they know that will cost billions of dollars, lower revenue for petroleum companies, and upset a lot of people.  They continue to deny climate change, and refuse any substantial legislation that could make a difference, and possibly save the planet.  But they don't.  Some have finally taken that first step to admit we are living with climate change.  Wow.  How big of them.

Here is the reason so few people on this planet, can continue to ignore the crisis, live like kings, and pretend there isn't a crisis.   We are pussy's.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
