What a wonderful windy wagon. Wanna take a ride?
We all want to make our world an even better place. But it seems we humans are continually fooled by feel-good groupthink emotions rather than acting on boring evidence-based facts. Some skepticism, critical thinking and optimism are way overdue.
Let’s then ”raise awareness!” and support our much maligned slactivist riders
Revolution -Beatles (1968) trying 44 years ago to reason with save-the-world causes.
You say you want a revolution/Well, you know/We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction/Don’t you know that you can count me out
You say you’ll change the constitution/Well, you know/We all want to change your head
You tell me it’s the institution/Well, you know/You’d better free your mind instead
We have a cornucopia of coal, oodles of oil, a gazillion gallons of gas and numberless nanoQuads of non-violent nuclear.
Dams are diminishing, wind is weakening, solar is Solyndra-ing and biofuels are buckling.
World temperatures are decreasing as CO2 increases; Increasing energy use continues lifting peoples out of poverty; Resources are abundant; Food harvests rise ahead of population increases. Our energy and resource needs are easily met … when allowed.
Pollution is low, species are increasing, habitats are multiplying, woods are waxing.
However that won’t stop us humans being fooled. As Jon Stewart hilariously put it: “Fool me once …” This age old shell game is still reaping in $billions from good trusting citizens.
