George tells us the greatest threat to “civilization” is “global terrorism”.
Al tells us it’s “global warming and climate change”.
They’re both either in complete denial or simply lying to promote the interests and agenda they both represent, which are basically one and the same.
The greatest threats to humanity are not “global warming” or “global terrorism”. They are militarism and overpopulation.
Terrorism and “global warming” are the byproducts of these core problems.
True leaders don’t promote and dramatize problems, they search out solutions and build the necessary consensus to provide for the means to implement them.
Thus far the war in Iraq has cost a minimum of 338 billion dollars.
Had U.S. policy been instead to subsidize energy conservation, wind power, solar systems and geothermal heating and cooling domestically rather than seek the military conquest and economic domination of the relatively few countries with the last remaining large domestic reserves of cheap oil; how much “green” electricity might we now be generating with the tens of thousands of commercial wind turbines that could have been subsidized with the same borrowed capitol that has been squandered on the occupation of Iraq and for what?
“They’ve” known for 50 years that oil production would peak and then decline globally, same for natural gas and eventually coal.
You simply can’t bake a bigger hydrocarbon pie.
The answer for sustained or increased energy use and production lies in nuclear power and or renewable alternatives.
There are but three options:
Alternative sources of energy production, we all live on less or less of us live.
Take a hard look at where the bulk of the expenditures and technological efforts are today and have been for decades regarding planning and building for the future and you shouldn’t have any difficulty determining what the long-term U.S. policy objective is when considering which of these three strategies the policy makers have placed our largest investments.
The key global problem is the amount of manpower, material and resources devoted to militarization, rather than rational solutions.
The causes both Bush and Gore are trumpeting as “the problem” are interconnected and serve as alibis for stopgap solutions that exacerbate rather than solve the core issue.
Reduction or strict limits on CO2 emissions will result in reduced economic activity in both developed and developing nations.
Reduction in economic activity leads to decreased social justice and equality. This becomes the driving motivator for “terrorism”.
Increased poverty and reduced opportunity inhibits efforts and incentive to reduce fertility rates and the subsequent increase in population is the core problem.
Redirection of the vast amount of manpower, economic wealth and resources dedicated towards both the external militarization and the internal policing of the world’s population to support this increasing social injustice towards real and lasting solutions is humanities very last hope.
That my friends is the real “Inconvenient Truth”.
