For decades, scientists have warned us about climate changes that we will experience if we didn’t make certain changes. The warnings are coming true, but the people who needed to make changes refuse to do so because it will cost them. They say the science is not proven.
That’s so convenient for them but bad for the rest of us, who have to pay dearly for dealing with extreme weather damages.
ExxonMobil, Koch Industries, Duke Energy and the other energy corporations have been able to spin the propaganda disputing climate change even when they are preparing for the damaging effects from it. The politicians who are paid for by these corporations have to agree with them if they want to keep their jobs. Many of them at first acknowledged the melting of the ice cap but later changed their minds. Is it any wonder that the weather leads the news almost every night and people’s lives are on the line?
Should we allow these billionaires to destroy the earth for the next generation?
