If A Tree Falls

Is it possible it can all bond now to make sense? The relentless sweltering summer heat, heavy on 66 % of the nation. The towns ravaged by monster tornadoes. The winters with extraordinary snow that gets to be raging runoffs; the droughts and floods that affect our food production. Is there a individual that can seriously deny global warming? Seriously, I want a subscriber base. If so, I don't believe they paid attention growing up or possibly these are repressing their memories, which is certainly not just how I remember it.

If the science doesn't cause you to believe surely the chaos is convincing. And even if all one has time for is work and sleep, regarding the price of food, energy, insurance, growing? That's a reality. The 2 " in 30-minute rainstorms, which we've got had locally, produce lightening and wind that burns down houses and takes down our most stately shade trees. Does it seem sensible when the tree hits the car or house, or individuals no longer shade allowing the children to stay the yard and they also receive third degree burns from your playground slide? I don't bear in mind. The insect infected, downed and logged trees will no longer absorb the carbon when they did, but they may be just trees and you'll crank up the oxygen conditioning and remain inside. This is America why not? Your individual rights are usually in the constitution by God that also includes comfort.

The shattering fact to me is that folk have no curiosity about what makes sense and no fascination with the truth; or should I say so the majority are so cock-sure they know reality. This is truth quite outside of education or investigation and often wrapped up inside 'money equals brains' mentality. This view was beautifully illustrated by considered one of my daughter's college friends in their summation of his side of your political discussion with'.'if you're so smart, why can't you be rich'?

There is a whole generation of entitled individuals, fattened on jobs that earned a ton of money despite no knowledge and little effort, apart from socialibility and staying at the right place for the right time, Despite producing nothing and consuming with abandon these people will not be contrite, they may be bitter. They believe these people have a right on the continuation on this money, a to spend and employ resources and in addition they 'conger up' a political view that supports their directly to easy money, in spite of the snow globe economy fantasy which was created for it to take place, and whatever it means for future years. They believe the economy can and will expand forever.

Cars are definitely more important as opposed to highways they drive on, and houses will be more important compared to neighborhoods they stay at home. Taxes represent to those people a shot to take 'hard' earned money, they being apparently uneducated to where roads and schools and also the virtual order of the civilization derives from. Lack of taxes cracks the veneer of prosperity as visibly as rust and pot holes, so that as invisibly as children who can't or won't read, or make arithmetic calculations not to mention know or vote their interests. It's a license. not an education should be a realtor or maybe a car salesman.

A selfish, individual over society, disguised as individual over government, attitude can certainly make the world a hard, polluted and unholy spot to live.
And that's just about where we're. Is it possible because of it to seem sensible?
The car- ahh- the auto. The position the poor can be shown middle class along with the middle class can be displayed wealthy. You can drive your financial statement across town. The car may be the coarse, indelible meaning of status. Small cars are for brand new immigrants or teenage drivers or socialists. Cars are deemed to desire comfort no matter what. They must management of the mountain passes and spare the kids the embarrassment of aging. For these cars we've the directly to cheap gas. No one can make us get free from our cars and walk.

Our public lands aren't almost experiencing untrammeled beauty and wildlife the lands should also be open to the internal combustion contrivance around the world. Owning and driving a motor vehicle, a snowmobile, a4- wheeler a jet ski, influences bill of rights. Somewhere missing would be the bill of responsibilities. Also missing is an fascination with what is sensible, sustainable. I guess the question to your masters with the universe the 2% who may have corralled 60% of all the so-called money is. If you're so rich, why shouldn't you be smart?

What is missing is a superb sports analogy to go into detail the material inequity. It's similar to the middle of any football game, , they switched to hockey. Not only do you lack skates there is absolutely no room available for you on the team. The game went from 11 to six players. Only the 6 players are financed with hockey rink and gear for that game And the sport is from town. You're odd man out.

But however the rich were smart enough to rig the overall game to gain the treasure, they've already fowled the nest for their own reasons as well as us this also is everyone's most immediate problem. You can't eat, drink or breath money. Some of that ozone that drifts around Pinedale Wyoming might just make it to Dick Cheney's house in Jackson. The banker while using home in La Jolla is bombarded with radiation from Fukishima and has now bought a house that is to be underwater, literally, in manufactured years. He can relocate to Florida but his seafood is going to be contaminated with oil and dispersants. It's too hot to become outside so from his air-conditioned living room area he can watch dead baby dolphins wash up about the beach. Oil and gas pipelines, scoured by river debris, break and ruin the fly fishing for that natural gas 'wild-catter' that fought every proposed climate, water and pipe line regulation, and flaunted the remainder, to produce his fortune.

It reminds me from the Ingmar Bergman film, 'The Seventh Seal', that may place in Europe over the plague. In a go to stay away from the Black Death the nobility of Europe retreat to barricade themselves inside their castles. The rats in addition to their fleas were ready and expecting them. Bergman's survivors were roaming gypsies that stay away from the plague when you're mobile and free'but certainly, equally as ignorant with the cause from the death as being the nobles.

Ignorance, even though it has it's bliss, gets one nowhere in your world. The meek may yet inherit our planet, nevertheless they may not desire to. The mainstream media, shows us people starving in Somalia, shows us the tornados, the oil spills, the floods, the nuclear power plant meltdowns, and not the people still in tents or trailers, not time frame shrimp catches it shows the catastrophe, however, not the results. Sometimes the outcome are not even measured as with Fukishima. Have we heard about the radiation that drifted with all the jet stream straight to your West coast and on for being caught by my west side from the Rockies; radiation that insinuates itself into every living thing. Sometimes the photo just fades from view like Joplin or Detroit or New Orleans or Minot. There are no patterns here it suggests; just an exotic streak of bad luck; without the need of effect, no cause; No our planets atmosphere, nor insufficient that' anti-capitalist regulation'. No recognition of corporate power over environmental laws which could safe guard the resources we should instead live; no knowning that 'if you poison the planet earth the world will poison you'. Will a tree need to drop with your head for doing this to 'hit home'?

All of us have to come to grips with this excessive, entitled consumption; The most complete blinders for this are for the Eastern seaboard, This area was fortunate to own its oil and propane and coal extracted west on the Mississippi, to the most part, until the gas discovery in a area supplying the mineral water to New York City. It continues to be exciting to determine the extraction method know as fracking create a blip about the environmental radar. Otherwise the catastrophes of flood, or drought or tornado or hurricane are away from sight and soon beyond mind until these are on your head. Hopefully the simple fact of local aging nuclear power plants, with on-site waste storage, are pause for thought after Fukishima plus the floods in Missouri I'm sure the East Coast's time should come as there are ultimately no winners in the java prices lottery.

I am particularly considering one fantasy that we now have been experiencing, and wishing with all of our heart were true. Cheap clean energy. There isn't such thing however many ads the thing is on TV. There is clean energy, yet it's not cheap. Wind and solar require capital investment beforehand. Our government familiar with invest in this type of thing, and to being crippled by politics, we're also crippled by war debt and our stupid decision to bail out rich folks. There is affordable[ish] energy is cheap for the pump, in comparison on the rest of the entire world. This we now have subsidized through regulations, cheap leases, nonexistent environmental regulation; it truly is becoming costly due to its effect on java prices but, maddeningly, there's no mental connection to the telltale 'externalized' costs we have been beginning to cash inability cost us our very lives. The propane industry genuinely does offer a less carbon emitting fuel, but producers refuse to produce any efforts to lessen it's carbon footprint setting it up OUT from the ground. It flares and fracks when needed, allowing methane and open pits of benzene along with other volatile organic compounds to off-gas into the environment. A drilling site is undoubtedly an ugly, smelly dangerous place. They don't call the staff rough necks for nothing. And trust me we will live to regret the a lot of gallons of water lottery number blackhawks that may be rendered unusable by used in drilling. Don't expect anything sensible in the extraction industry, or politicians. I could continue on but why bother Get ready for more chaos.

When a tree falls from the forest and there isn't any one there to see it, does it come up with a sound?
When a tree falls on your own head, does anybody wonder why?
