We’ve always lived in a cloud of uncertainty about the world around us— not any more.
Most of us recognize that climate change is real yet we do nothing to stop it.
We can talk about it till the methane cows come home.
It is more and more apparent with the state our world is in that no solutions will be acceptable even if we are all looking down the barrel of extinction.
The world remains more than 85 per cent reliant on fossil fuels to satisfy its thirst for energy.
THIRTY YEARS AGO, the potentially disruptive impact of heat-trapping emissions from burning fossil fuels and rainforests became front-page news.
Here we are today and we still don’t get it.
Close our eyes, hope for the best and pay the cost when the bill comes due.
There remains a host of human behavioural traits and social norms that cut against getting climate change right.
Climate change is unlike any environmental problem we’ve ever faced.
It won’t be fixed by circumscribed regulations and treaties and limited technological changes.
Climate change is too big in space, time, and complexity; the emissions that cause it are too central a consequence of the effort of some 7.5 billion people now, and some 10 billion within several decades, to prosper on Earth.
Even if we manage to introduce technological solutions it’s hard to know if a technological civilization could survive losing something like 70 per cent of its population.
Technology will never cease to amaze—and surprise—us but we need a dictator global government on the Environment. Binding treaties, Paris agreements are of no use.
There’s no single “we” when it comes to energy, nor for vulnerability to climate hazards.
We seem unable to set political partisanship aside, even in the face of a
terrible—global—problem. It is quite obvious if we could get China, the United States, and the European Union in a room and agree to stop greenhouse gas pollution quickly, the problem would be solved.
Unfortunately, that is not going to happen anytime soon.
For the up and coming generation, climate change is in the air now. It is embedded in the culture they are growing up in. It is mentioned in movies, on television, by celebrities. Young people aren’t deniers.
However intellectual progress is made one funeral at a time.
There is no one solution to climate change. There will be many. We don’t even know now where all the solutions are going to come from and we don’t really know how close to disaster we are.
Unfortunately, our values, assumptions, and prejudices can take on lives of their own, gaining authority as they are shared, dividing people in their wake.
Would someone please tell me how wants to live in a WORLD where you have to be worried all the time.
Only by acquiring the full understanding of the system and its plan as if we ourselves designed and created it can we understand that if we are to avoid climate change we must make Profit for profit sake pay for the solutions.
Our role is to become fully conscious, independent observers of reality. We can’t change anything only our viewpoint, relation, attitude toward the world and everything, everybody surrounding us.
In the previous post, I advocated that the only way to tackle climate change was to apply a 0.05% World Aid commission on all High-Frequency Stock Trading, Sovereignty Wealth Funds, on all foreign Currency Trades over $50.000, on all World Lottos, to create a self-perpetuating fund of billions. These funds would be totally transparent and granted on a non-repayable base to projects that created sustainability.
Against the current state of our world, the likely hood of such funds is probably pie in the sky.
So it appears without any cooperation amongst our world leaders it is up to us as individuals.
To do this we must form small units like atoms, containing three people within each and every atom.
The number one goal?
Influence others to make changes, to exercise their rights both as citizens and as consumers, to eat food that is both locally grown and seasonal.
To drive less, fly less, switch to a ‘green’ energy provider.
To become seen not just data by attending protest events. Because from the day we are born our lives before us are being scripted more and more by technology to turn us just into actors.
(We are born into this illusory, “free and independent” Human reality, so by gradually revealing, acknowledging that it is a lie and we are fully directed by evolution’s force, we develop the necessary contrast, comparative duality in order to fully understand the system.)
(Invisible scripts are truths so ubiquitous and deeply embedded in society that we don’t even realize they’re guiding our attitudes and behaviour. They’re usually so subtle they’ll pass through your mind completely undetected. That’s okay as long as you realize any invisible script you adopt has the power to shape your life tremendously.)
When one person makes a sustainability-oriented decision, other people do too.
The UN Climate Convention keeps a portfolio of dozens of projects around the world you can contribute to.
A person who doesn’t know anything about his destination is treated as mad.
This is a life-altering problem we are gambling with humanity because too many unknowable things kick in.
But what is the psychological mechanism that allows us to know something is true but act as if it is not?
Mostly, the religious people are made to believe the predetermined nature of our existence and meanings attached to that.
Between 1945 and 1986 we built up a lot of infrastructures to make sure we would not blow each other up with weapons of mass destruction. It took years.
This time it is scripted by evolution’s intelligent, it is now or never.
So if by some chance some rich dude read this I would ask him or her to support the Athom movement by designing a badge to be worn.
All human comments appreciated. All like clicks and abuse chucked in the bin.
