I have no real blog post today. I am too tired and frustrated with the endless warnings that business as usual can’t continue and the constant propaganda that it can/will/must.
A few weeks ago, I put up a picture on my Facebook page of Rex Tillerson, CEO of ExxonMobil, with a quote from him that said, “What’s the point of saving the planet if humanity suffers?”
Most people, reading that quote, would say, “Duh! What a stupid question. Does he think destroying the planet is going to make humanity suffer less?” Yet we act, as a species, as if the quote makes perfect sense. It doesn’t.
Business as Usual has caught up with us. We’ve dug up, cut down, poisoned and plundered the best of what the earth offered us for a continuing series of what amounts to plastic pumpkins and plasticized lives and, right now, I just can’t do another blog piece about it.
Natures is fighting back and if Rex Tillerson – and anyone else – thinks saving the earth will cause human suffering, wait until he sees what our continued destruction of the earth will bring.
That’s about all I have to say this week, so I’ll close with a few more links, ever hopeful that someone will read them and say, “Wow, I have to change what I’m doing NOW” I’ll see you next week:
