( A twenty-second truth read)
Long before the Paris Agreement I posted an open letter to the delegates, which fell on clogged ears and blind eyes.
The 2 degrees limit agreed is unenforceable, joining the ranks of 500 similarly powerless global and regional environmental agreements.
So despite aspiring pledges we are now well on the way bequeathing an fucked up planet to our grandchildren not to mention robots.
As it speeds up the world will be torched not just by the sun but by migration and water wars.
The full impact of climate change is totally underestimated. We are going to see unimaginable refugee problems never mind sea level rising.
You don’t need Artificial Intelligence to realize that humanity as a whole is incapable of acting for the common good, or that little can be achieved without someone paying for it.
These two realizations are the main reasons that there is only one solution.
What caused the problem in the first place and what continues to deny the problem must pay.
But how to implement a paying system that is fair to all.
We place a World Aid Commission on all activities that create profit for profit’s sake.
An 0.05% Commission on all High frequency transactions, on all Foreign Exchange transactions over lets say $50,000, on all Sovereign Wealth Acquisitions, on all World Lotto Draws.
This will produce a perpetual Fund of trillions to tackle climate change. It will allow poorer countries to catch up with richer.
The Fund to be managed Independently of governments with total transparency.
Global climate is projected to continue to change over this century and beyond.
The magnitude of climate change beyond the next few decades depends primarily on the amount of heat-trapping gases emitted globally, and how sensitive the Earth’s climate is to those emissions.
Will it happen. The future won’t happen on its own.
Our task today is to create it, to preserve it for the future.
