Caring For Our Environment Isn’t Optional

2013/03/20

I’m on a (low-carbon) holiday for the next while, with little access to a computer, so please accept my apologies for delayed responses or posting of comments. All should be back to normal the last week of March. In the meantime, I scoured my files for some photos and graphics to post while I’m away – this one was probably from last year’s U.S. election. Sadly, the sentiment is as accurate in 2013 as it was then.

the environment matters because it's yr real future

    It’s not restricted just to Republicans, but anyone who holds the fusionism / free-market ideology above question.

    In short, that mentality is short-sighted; they are concerned only with their personal “freedom”, the land within their boundaries, their money and (after all that) their immediate family. It’s all; me, me, ME! Infantile to say the least…

    Any evidence that stresses regulation / restriction to the individual for communal prosperity (and ultimately their own prosperity) fails to gain audience to such a manic self-interested personality.

    Effective environmental management is beyond question. There is no difference between maintaining a health, rich environment and ensuring a life-support system for a seriously ill-patient is in working order simply because there is no fundamental difference. Our environments are our life-support system.

    A ten-fold increase in Katrina-like storm surges is something we should all care about – Conservative, Liberal, NDP, Green, Republicans and Democrates. That’s what is projected with a 2 degree C warming.
