Western industrialists have always wanted to mass-produce the future.
Environmentalists have always wanted to preserve the future by preserving the Earth each day.
The warmongers have always wanted to endanger the future like it was one of the 200 species made extinct each day in the present world.
Climate scientists, environmentalists, ecologists, and others tell us that we cannot have a future in the form of a comfortable civilization if Oil-Qaeda is allowed to continue to terrorize the possibility of our existence with its toxic drugs: fossil fuels.
The book depicted above, The Future, written by Vice President Al Gore, tries to tell us what we have to do and need to do to make sure we get there in one piece:
Ours is a time of revolutionary change that has no precedent in history. With the same passion he brought to the challenge of climate change, and with his decades of experience on the front lines of global policy, Al Gore surveys our planet’s beclouded horizon and offers a sober, learned, and ultimately hopeful forecast in the visionary tradition of Alvin Toffler’s Future Shock and John Naisbitt’s Megatrends. In The Future, Gore identifies the emerging forces that are reshaping our world: Ever-increasing economic globalization ... worldwide digital communications, Internet, and computer revolutions ... The balance of global political, economic, and military power is shifting ... A deeply flawed economic compass ... Genomic, biotechnology, neuroscience, and life sciences revolutions ... There has been a radical disruption of the relationship between human beings and the earth’s ecosystems ...(The Future, Random House; cf. video below). VP Gore is Mr. Nice Guy, but the rest of this post will be without Mr. Nice Guy.
What is needed is immediate criminal prosecutions of Oil-Qaeda in place of the much-ado-about-nothing imaginary al-Qaeda, a minor league player when compared to the worldwide professional killing machine that Oil-Qaeda has become (Oil-Qaeda: The Indictment).
Regular readers know that Dredd Blog has mapped out the mindless, senseless, suicidal, murderous, and ecocidal path we have been taken down by Oil-Qaeda (The Peak of Sanity - 5).
Lately, one of Oil-Qaeda's favorite propaganda stupors is to blame the victim, blame the people of the world for purchasing their product.
It is easy for them to blame because they have allegiance to no single nation (MOMCOM: The Private Parts - 3).
Their glib, smug, cowardly, and dishonest blaming of the victim should prompt anger that builds into a firestorm of prosecutions (Is 'Insanity' A Valid Defense To Ecocide? - 3).
Oil-Qaeda is a murder-suicide type of cult masking as rational human beings (MOMCOM's Mass Suicide & Murder Pact - 5).
Their history has been traced to some extent (A History of Oil Addiction - 4).
