Outrageous white noise?

Future generations are irreversibly/inescapably trapped — herded into a hotter planet of melting ice and rising seas.

Climate scientists report Greenland and Antarctica have lost 200 billion metric tons of ice yearly since 1992. Global ice melt accelerates. With fossil-fuels, a massively global pathological OCD(obessive-compulsive-disorder) growth economy, exponentially degrades/destroys/ravages/savages this unique cosmic biosphere (i.e. Teztan Biny experience?) Reality check. It’s unsustainable!

Canada’s national stance steadily creeps/speeds toward runaway global climate change. Canada opposes 140 global nations who agreed with global-warming kept below 2C (in carbon-neutral 2026 planning Copenhagen, Dec. ‘09). Canada irrationally dismisses this global goal.

“There are in fact two things, science and opinion; the former begets knowledge, the latter ignorance (Hippocrates).”  This “fact” applies. Canada irrationally/ignorantly dismisses climate science.  Clues to deceit?

Private-profit and revenue.

Leaders of Canadian industry, commerce, labour, political parties, municipal, provincial, national government “bank” on pathological OCD global economic growth … maximizing global consumption of Canada’s fossil fuels.  Canadian Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq opines dogmatic Canadian fossil-fuel industry above impartial peer-reviewed 2013 IPCC science(9/27/13). Impartial peer-reviewed scientific climate knowledge moves/draws democracy from irrational ignorance. In 2014/15, personal and collective democratic belonging/empathy/participation requires scientific climate literacy, consistent with existing degrees of global democratic mutual help.

Democratically, Canada can commit to global climate goals in Paris 2015 with enforced global GHG cuts for global common interest. Maximized global consumption of Canadian fossil-fuels is anti-democratic uncommon hostile private-interest, self-absorbed, outrageously sacrificing/cannibalizing future generations.

The 2014/15 crossroad for mankind’s future, or its decline/demise, is here. Dogmatic Canadian fossil-fuel production for global consumption must be cut sufficiently, between 2020/2030, to stop runaway greenhouse gas effects within this century.  Planned implementation by 2020 is now. This generation has democratic ability to stop homosapiens’ most crudest/costliest/cruelest inhuman debacles — anti-human warfare and man-made irreversible runaway global-warming.

Our children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, will know.This generation democratically chose ignorance or knowledge in 2014 for future generations.  Outrageous white noise?
