Global Warming's Terrifying New Math | Politics News — — Readability

Global Warming's Terrifying New Math | Politics News — — Readability

 "...the planet does indeed have an enemy – one far more committed to action than governments or individuals. Given this hard math, we need to view the fossil-fuel industry in a new light. It has become a rogue industry, reckless like no other force on Earth. It is Public Enemy Number One to the survival of our planetary civilization. 'Lots of companies do rotten things in the course of their business – pay terrible wages, make people work in sweatshops – and we pressure them to change those practices,' says veteran anti-corporate leader Naomi Klein, who is at work on a book about the climate crisis. 'But these numbers make clear that with the fossil-fuel industry, wrecking the planet is their business model. It's what they do.'"

Forget about your energy-efficient light bulbs, your hybrid car, your energy star appliances, washing your clothes in off-peak hours, and your solar panels. Forget about lobbying your MP or MPP. Forget about signing petitions and marching on Parliament Hill or the streets of your city. This is where your focus should only be: your enemy, the planet's enemy, is the fossil-fuel industry. Never forget it. And that makes those such as the Harper Regime who aid and abet this destruction in the service of ruthless profit your enemies too.
