Global Warming

The Iraq war seems to take every one's attention but the fact is that the one single thing we should all be working on at top speed and total effort is global warming.

I'm not too worried about it because I figure it's already too late and humanity is screwed, and I'll be dead before the worst happens, anyway. Now I don't mean the end of humanity but a natural disaster that will look like the last 20 years of all natural disasters combined. Climate will change and people will starve, the coasts will flood and there will be refugees even in the first world. Millions will die and the entire globe will take a tremendous economic hit.

We have George Bush to thank for much of this, a guy on the oil companies payroll who has even had wording of scientific documents changed and made sure most of America didn't take the whole thing too seriously. And all this has been due to Exxon, the worst culprit. I always wonder about guys like that, do they simply fail to consider that their children and grandchildren are going to have to live (and maybe die) in the world they are creating? Or does that just not mean anything to them next to their one true god - Profit?

But for those who still want to try and do something here's an article that talks about that:

The Most Important Thing You Can Do To Stop Global Warming

For those who just want to get angry at Exxon:

ExxonMobil's War on Science

By Robert Kennedy Jr.

With an elaborate network of phony think tanks and slick public relations firms, ExxonMobil has become today's Big Tobacco, defrauding the public and waging a war on science.

What we need is a REAL president, someone like Jack Kennedy. Jack turned the whole country to the task of landing a man on the moon by the end of the 60's and we did it. A real leader, which could be Obama, can do the same with energy, make sure we have viable alternatives to oil and gas within ten years, that is probably the only thing that will save us. And by "save" I mean 2 million dying instead of 40 million. I just hope Obama doesn't get assassinated.
