COMMENT Bob Weaver|
In America we have been programmed for immediate gratification, and we have obliged with our conspicuous consumption, not only entertaining ourselves to death with our national politics, but glutting ourselves with mass media excitement on a daily basis.
The politics of climate change, the expulsion of fossil fuels into the air and water, is being denied or is viewed as a disruptive hoax to life and earth, a world that depends on its consumption for the profits of a trillion dollar industry.
Never mind that the government has been issuing warnings to eat a limited number of mercury laden fish from out rivers and streams, connected to such emissions.
The dumping of our conspicuous consumption of oil produced plastics into our rivers and oceans is not a worry.
Such issues will likely become a concern when human beings shrivel, and then it is likely too late.
