Enlightening but depressing We knew everything we needed to know in 1988 to make the decision to start taking action to avert the global warming catastrophe but oil companies banded together to block action and support Republicans who did their bidding to oppose action So now we will get at least 3 degrees C warming when it might have been held to 15C which in terms of ultimate effects is a huge difference I voted for Reagan in ignorance of his anti environmentalism I vowed after 2000 never to vote for a Republican again; this book lays out the case for the complicity or the fossil fuel industry and the Republican Party in the coming global disaster For crying out loud even Margaret Thatcher understood that global warming was real and was man made Sad when an entire political party does not care what happens to the generations to come

Climate change is not a new phenomenon We have known for decades that it’s happening And to put it uite simply we have not done enough about it Considering the scope of what we face we have done absolutely nothing to prevent itAs the years have passed the problem has got progressively worse We burn fossil fuels and we cut down of the rain forest to accommodate our ever growing and longer living population We live in the now engaging in the same circular petty politics that only exist to serve the neoliberalist state and continue to destroy our home with our consumerism We don’t grow We don’t learn And if we carry on we’re all going to die because we are losing the earth This book is a brief history chronicling the decade that we really could have prevented the destruction we have subseuently wrought on our home We have permanently changed the biology of our planet The damage is totally irreversible as we have lost so many species because their habitat has ceased to exist because of our actions We will never get them back They will never walk the earth again and it’s completely on us We are to blame Nothing but a globally co ordinated action plan could have prevented it but nobody proposed it because nobody was listening The problem the major problem we still face today and the one that is often wielded by climate change deniers is that it’s bad for business Environmentalism is bad for business so it’s easier to pretend like it doesn’t exist and continue on as normal so the massive corporations don’t lose any of their precious money We ignore the problem and we carry onAnd our children must face the aftermathWe have known for 50 yearsLet that sink inFacebook| Twitter| Insta| Academia
