Of 11 top wealthiest powerful corporations, eight are dominant fossil-fuel corporate players.
The roots of global warming/climate change are, above/below all, private interest profits.
Vast wealth, power and control attracts psychopaths/sociopaths/pawns. Blame the victim? Dare we notice … oil as power?
“They’re (psychopaths) not inhibited by the possibility that someone else is going to be hurt or harmed,” (Dr. Robert Hare, professor emeritus, UBC).
Harmfully low? Moderately harmful? Highly harmful? Unacceptably harmful? Blame the victim?
Sociopaths (among us) have absolutely no concern for the effects of their behaviour on other people.
Re-branded safe clean coal, clean bitumen, clean LNG’s … we (victims) may not notice intentional victimizing harm.
Fossil-fuel addiction internationally promoted now by GHG corporate pawns at humanity’s expense is unacceptable.
One-hundred-ninety nations agreed (2010) with climate-science evidence that passing 2 C is harmful/dangerous.
Their goal is to avoid fossil-fueled (human generated CO2e/methane) global warming 2 C danger … a goal dismissed by fossil-fuel corporate pawns.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper withdrew Canada (13/12/11) from enforceable legal limits of GHG/s (Kyoto Protocols).
Forty-one per cent of Canadians noticed. All Canadians should know implications for their own children and grandchildren.
Harper intends to market Canadian resourced GHGs … as much as politically possible. Alberta Premier Alison Redford would see Alberta tar-sand bitumen production (now 1.87) double by 2021 to 3.7 million barrels a day … triple later to five million (plus) barrels a day.
Not possible without pipelines to transport GHG bitumen to global markets.
Will not take “No!” (Harper). Clark … safe/clean massive LNG?
Without global “binding” GHG cuts at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in Paris (2015), consequences will be passing 2 C (last chance 2015-2020).
We will stay on course for 4 C … or hotter world without certainty of human adaptation (World Bank).
“Psychopaths (among us) are cold-blooded, conscienceless megalomaniacs who regard other people as objects to be used and discarded at will,” (Dr. Hare).
Most Canadians aren’t psychopaths/sociopaths!
But, will enough Canadians care to fathom human destiny, allow themselves participation in effective/collective democratic action, achieve life worth living for all globally?
Will compassionate Canadians notice in time (now 2013), overdue (summer 2014) … stop global-genocide (Paris 2015)?
