I’ve had it. I just want to leave this planet and its criminal stupidities.
For 50 years, science has predicted that Australia would become drier, with more drought, and greater danger and severity of wildfire.
It’s been happening exactly as predicted. The bad bushfire years are due to global climate fluctuations such as ENSO and the Indian Ocean Dipole. Since 1939, on the average, each of these has been worse than the ones before.
The tragedy now devastating my country, Australia, is a direct consequence of global inaction on climate change.
The first, natural and correct reaction to the tragedy has been millions of people waking up, and putting the blame where it belongs. But, “Business is business, and business must grow, regardless of crummies in tummies, you know!”
The suicide-bound dinosaurs are fighting back. The Murdoch press, right-wing radio stations, and conservative politicians have devised a ridiculous campaign: it has nothing to do with climate change (because there is no such thing) but it’s all the fault of the Greens.
That part is OK. It’s what one expects from climate criminals. What gives me despair is that there are people who believe it.
Please read this excellent op-ed from Van Badham.
OK, this is in Australia, but wherever you live, it’s relevant to your local area too.
