Editor’s Note: I do not agree with the assessment of climate change being a man-made occurrence that can or should be corrected in the short term. I do not believe we’re two, ten, or even 100 years from catastrophic events as a result of man-made climate change. I DO believe we should be heading towards a cleaner future that is practical, measured, and that focuses on real problems like potable water, reducing pollution, a steadily shifting towards renewable energy over time. While I disagree with Mr. Ticktin’s conclusion, I believe his analysis is appropriate. I do hope he is wrong, though.
There are a great number of people, like Al Gore, who are making a fortune by setting themselves up as the high priests of climate change. It’s kind of like the Clinton Foundation. They need a cause so that they can collect and pay themselves funds collected.
Just because there is a Clinton Foundation, doesn’t mean that world hunger doesn’t exist. It doesn’t mean that there was no earthquake in Haiti. Just because there are charlatans getting rich doesn’t mean that Global Warming isn’t real. It just means that bad people have schemes.
In a way, it’s a good thing that people believe that Global Warming is a scam. It isn’t as though they could do anything about it. At least they get to be happier for a little longer.
Remember, as I have said, quoting myself (so arrogant): “There are only 2 kinds of people on the planet. There are those who believe in global warming, and there are those who will believe in global warming.” I doubt that there are too many Australians who deny it, right now. Australia is a precursor of what is coming to a theater near you. I say 2 years away in some areas of the US.
Donald Trump needs to know that when he becomes more concerned, he needs Peter Ticktin.
As for today, it is beautiful, here. We should appreciate that which we still have, and breath it in, because it isn’t going to last. Hold and love those who are close, take the time to taste what you eat, smell the sea, and celebrate each moment.
