George Monbiot: Despite hurricane Sandy, neither Obama nor Romney will speak about global warming.
the two candidates remain struck dumb. Speech fails them, action is abominable, they will not even raise their hands in self-defence. The world's most pressing crisis, now breaking down the doors of the world's most powerful nation, cannot be discussed....
Note From @pdjmoo
When politics trumps the safety and health of our planet that supports all life and from which we draw all our natural resources for products, something is very, very wrong. In the final analysis we cannot drink oil or eat money.
The costs of continuing silence and denial will not only be irreversible, but beyond any monetary figure this planet has ever known. Climate Change is a direct result of planetary biosphere imbalances and further emptying of our ocean, raping our forests extinguishing all life within them; poisoning our soils, water and ecosystems with millions of tons of chemicals and pesticides; spewing unknown amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere from fossil fuels; only pushes us closer and closer to a perfect storm: An environmental, economic and social collapse. Without Nature We Do Not Exist.
We must commit to a holistic approach for all our business decisions with a base question: "Does this Harm the Environmental or Human Health?" and if the answer is YES, then back to the drawing board.
We are an intelligent race and we are an integral species within the greater biosphere. As such, it is only humans who can bring the impending destructions to a halt and set forth on a completely new path of integrated and interdependent awareness where the bottomline of quarterly balance sheets and Wall Street stocks is not driving our decisions. A completely new paradigm of thought, action and values is required
