Yesterday as a first for this season was heard the monotonous repetitious call of a certain bird that can get a mention in the media in spring.
CLIMATE Our winter had temperatures and a lack of rain that broke the records. Same with rainfall in the flooded region in the US and the recent hurricanes where more records were broken.
That we have politicians that are climate deniers is staggering.
What is the nexus between conservatism, climate change denial, dead set against renewable energy, taking exercise, wearing budgie smugglers, Opus Die profile, vote no and messianic political pretencions? Haven't they heard their Pope is outspoken in support of action against Climate change. What does it take?
The nexus must be MONEY and more money. No matter what, profits must be made from fossil fuels -the oil and coal; profits from plundering the seas and marine parks; from excesses rather than sustainable processes and despite the hidden subsidies. Global profits are high stakes. No one can stand in the way.
