The Death of a Planet
By now we have all heard of global warming.
Despite a consensus by many noted scientists that it is happening and is a clear danger to our planet, there are those, such as the previous G. W. Bush administration, that would have us believe there is nothing to worry about.
Bush pulled out of the Kyoto Protocol, an international agreement to reduce carbon emissions and put in its place an American voluntary plan. This plan, so far, has only been signed by 14 companies’ country wide. He moved a group responsible for monitoring global warming, to come under the commerce department, headed by Secretary Don Evans an ex oil and gas executive.
The dangers of global warming are trying to be dispelled by the puppets of the oil industry and these puppets can obtain high positions.
A small department within the Pentagon, responsible for trying to identify future threats to security, commissioned a private company to try to evaluate what could happen if global warming continued unchecked. The findings were:
First, droughts would occur sparking great fires that released still more co2 into the atmosphere. The build up of co2 in the atmosphere would hold more heat attracting more water vapor. This would cause super storms breaking levees in places like Holland and Los Angeles.
The melting North Pole ice caps putting cold water into the seas would “turn off” the warm Gulf Stream putting Europe in a deep freeze. Although Europe froze, the rest of the planet would sizzle creating super droughts that would result in the destruction of crops. Resources would become scarce.
The United States would struggle to keep out refugees from the drought stricken Caribbean and would jostle with Mexico over the rights to the Colorado River.
As raiding is preferable to starving, Europe would look to secure food from Russia. Perhaps Japan would look for the oil resources of Russia.
Whilst Africa starves, India, Pakistan and China all armed with Nuclear Weapons, have border skirmishes over refugees, water rights and arable land.
The report concluded that armed nuclear warfare would be inevitable.
This surely could not be in the long term interests of even the oil industry.
Global warming is happening and is happening at an increasing rate. Now is the time that we must tell our leaders that we are not prepared for them to ignore the facts, sitting back to appease the oil giants.
They have to take responsible and major actions to try and curb this coming disaster.
It is not the climate that will kill us. It is us that will kill us.
