|Denial is Immaturity Based|
Some of us imagine a future civilization harmed by what we are doing now -- which is a mind trick that tells us that "it" is not here yet.
Utter and complete denial that "it" exists is another mind trick the big league deniers are playing on themselves.
The problem is that "it" is us and we are already here along with what we are doing.
Currently, about three million people die every year just from Oil-Qaeda sponsored air pollution, and about two hundred species become extinct each day.
About forty percent (~40%) of those human deaths, due to that air pollution, takes place in one nation:
Outdoor air pollution contributed to 1.2 million premature deaths in China in 2010, nearly 40 percent of the global total, according to a new summary of data from a scientific study on leading causes of death worldwide.(Air Pollution Linked to ... Deaths, emphasis added). Another estimate adds other oil pollution caused deaths to make the totals substantially larger:
More than 100 million people will die ... by 2030 if the world fails to tackle climate change, a report commissioned by 20 governments said on Wednesday.(Oil-Qaeda: The Indictment - 2). It is clear that it is not just air pollution that is killing us, because in the U.S. about fifty five percent (55%) of our rivers and streams are polluted (You're Doin' A Heckuva Job Browner - 5).
It calculated that five million deaths occur each year from air pollution, hunger and disease as a result of climate change and carbon-intensive economies, and that toll would likely rise to six million a year by 2030 if current patterns of fossil fuel use continue.
"A combined climate-carbon crisis is estimated to claim 100 million lives between now and the end of the next decade," the report said.
The foundation of propaganda induced magic thinking is based on a group addiction produced by Oil-Qaeda:
"The addiction to oil ... at least to the wealth and to the products made accessible to us by oil ... look at the negative consequences on the environment we are destroying the very Earth that we inhabit for the sake of that addiction. Now these addictions are far more devastating in the social consequences than the cocaine or heroin habits of my ... patients. Yet they are rewarded and considered to be respectable. The tobacco company executive that shows a higher profit will get a much bigger reward ... doesn't face any negative consequences legally or otherwise ... in fact is a respected member of the board of several other corporations ... but tobacco smoke related diseases kill 5.5 million people around the world every year. In the United States they kill 400,000 people a year".(A History of Oil Addiction - 4). We have had some of the best visionaries who have warned us for almost two centuries that our detachment from the reality of the planet we live on takes civilization in a fatal direction:
"And these people are addicted to what? To profit, to such a degree are they addicted that they are actually in denial about the impact of their activities, which is typical for addicts, is denial. And that is the respectable one. It is respectable to be addicted to profit no matter what the cost. So what is acceptable and what is respectable is a highly arbitrary phenomenon in our society. And it seems like the greater the harm the more respectable the addiction" (Dr. Maté).
“One would say that [man] is destined to exterminate himself after having rendered the globe uninhabitable.” - Lamarck (1817)(Quotes). There is a video available here which details the history of climate science discoveries and ignored warnings that have been given to civilization for many generations.
Looking to the world at no very distant date, what an endless number of the lower races will have been eliminated by the higher civilized races throughout the world." - Charles Darwin (1881)
“The end of the human race will be that it will eventually die of civilization.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
So what is the "it" that we collectively are waiting for?
