Listen to Lies and Watch Ice Melt

Here we are with another week of lies and misquotes from the giant grinding Military Industrial Complex. Rape the earth and create jobs! Make more guns they don’t kill people! There is no such thing as climate change! If you have succeeded in life you did it all by yourself and no one need ever have helped you! How long will these blatant lies be tolerated and shoved down the throat of the human race by institutions such as Fox News? Do these people have absolutely no sense of the truth whatsoever?

Look at the latest reports of the ice melt on Greenland. In a matter of days the temperatures have seen an unheard of rise. Let’s see the fossil fuel burning oligarchy lie its way out of this one. Can’t wait to see what kind of incompetent fools Fox News assembles to explain this one away. Let’s just ignore the facts and proceed to strip mine Canada for dirty shale oil. Then not only will we have destroyed some of the last pristine arboreal forest on the planet we will have availed ourselves of more of that fossil fuel we crave. When it burns it will further corrupt the atmosphere and further aggravate climate change.

Images released Tuesday show the extent of surface melt on Greenland's ice sheet on July 8 (left) and July 12 (right). Measurements from three satellites showed that on July 8, about 40 percent of the ice sheet had undergone thawing at or near the surface. By July 12, 97 percent of the ice sheet surface had thawed.

At what point does humanity realize it does not own the earth? If this fact is not realized soon the Earth will be happy to prove it to us. Massive climate change and extinction has happened before. The Earth owns us.

“We choose the right to be who we are. We know the difference between the reality of freedom and the illusion of freedom. There is a way to live with the earth and a way not to live with the earth. We choose the way of earth. It’s about power, Ray.” — Jimmy Looks Twice from the movie Thunderheart

  1. Respect is key. Most people don’t respect the Earth. As with any thing in life, we cannot keep taking, otherwise there will be nothing left.

  2. Dear Writer,
    Grab your helmet, the smell of seared steak and hot metal will so be among us! Grab a beer, some peanuts and a towel while your at it! Can you, Dear Writer, offer some kind of a solution? Where do we start? How do we begin to turn this calamity around. Does it start in our own gardens? Do we then share our knowledge with our neighbors and have a community garden? Does this community then go to the city counsel and demand more green space? Does this city then go to the county and demand wind and solar power for their area? Does this county then go to the state and demand that every neighborhood start like this? Does the state then go to the federal government and say “look what a great example of green space we are! Let us share our blueprint with other states”. Where and how do we begin?!? There are plenty of people grumbling…but who is doing? I think I will start today and plant a few seeds. 😉
