May 23, 2013 Tom Engelhardt - Common Dreams

Terracide and the Terrarists ...

 

Call it irony, if you will, or call it a nightmare, but Big Oil evidently has no qualms about making its next set of profits directly off melting the planet.  Its top executives continue to plan their futures (and so ours), knowing that their extremely profitable acts are destroying the very habitat, the very temperature range that for so long made life comfortable for humanity.

Their prior knowledge of the damage they are doing is what should make this a criminal activity.  And there are corporate precedents for this, even if on a smaller scale.  The lead industry, the asbestos industry, and the tobacco companies all knew the dangers of their products, made efforts to suppress the information or instill doubt about it even as they promoted the glories of what they made, and went right on producing and selling while others suffered and died.... http://www.commondreams.org/view/2013/05/23-4

TERRACIDE: the stuff you dont want to read on a monday morning, or any other day of the week. Ever!

Daniel LaLiberte's curator insight, May 27, 2013 3:06 PM

We will have enough trouble repairing the centuries of accumulated damage to the environment (to the extent we can) without simultaneously creating more.  No matter what, we need to shut down the entire fossil fuel industry as soon as possible, as fast as feasible.

Charlie Dare's curator insight, January 31, 6:59 AM

Unfortunately countries like India and China are hell bent on so called progress spewing more CO2 in the atmosphere in greater amounts.The Chinese are going to create rain by weather manipulation therefore making it dryer some where else. "Axis of evil " was a term used by Reagan but is just as applicable to planet destroying nations that really need direct action to bring them to brook for their irresponsible behaviour~
