Fellow freeloaders ;-)
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.

Turn up your lights, fire up that BBQ, rev up your V8 engines … Earth “Hour of Power” is coming to your balcony, backyard, bar and bistro this Saturday… for the 6th fabulous year running!….THERE’S GONNA BE A PARTY TONIGHT!
