You folks know I’m into thinking and reading and preaching and debating and then thinking some more about the Anthropogenic Global Warming thing - don’t ask me why, it’s what’s in me.
Now I know that we as a society knew the basic outlines of the situation, that is our Grand Geophysical Experiment, in the seventeens, early eighties at the latest.
Sure exact predictions could not be made, but jeez the direction of change was one way and the science behind the physicals was solid.
Here we are, I’m 57, four decades of watching life unfold and situations developing that scientists conjectured back then - unfolding with a relentless tempo.
And I look around and the air waves and virtual world of the internet is still flooded with deceivers and idiots doing their dangdest to confuse and stop any kind of proactive learning or action.

I’ll keep trying to call out the liars in my own way, but it all seems more and more futile all the time.
The changes we witness are slow but relentless and obvious to all who dare to look.
Yet those powerful PR makers and shapers continue feeding the lazy public bromides and distractions.
We can’t even collectively agree that this is really happening and that it is deadly serious for our society’s future, it’s like few care enough to even think about it. So sad.
From what I’ve seen about the science it’s inevitable that historic geophysical global heat distribution patterns will be pushed past certain thresholds and into entirely new climate regimes. Now I don’t see much difference between one decade or a quarter century or even a half century. Makes no difference how long before the climate becomes intolerable, the nightmare is that date is arriving faster than anyone could have ever feared imaging. And we continue to do nothing like mesmerized reptilian creatures rather than thinking humans in damage control mod.
So we continue bumbling along unable to do anything to slow the speed at which we are altering the composition of our planet’s thin insulating atmosphere.
Climate change will knock us on our asses and then run right on over us….......... at first we did nothing, then nothing we do will be enough.
So now my question:
What’s the psychologic or spiritual bridge to help a thinking person come to terms with that reality of our future?
