Local Warming From The Outsider
The history of the United Nations tells us that the possibility of united worldwide action on global warming is a fantasy. It ain’t gonna happen. Copenhagen underlined this as the power brokers vied with each other for domination (China 1 USA 0) while the smaller nations expressed their anger at being sidelined. It’s also worth noting that China has just executed a European citizen – the first since 1951 – in a graphic expose of its cultural primitiveness (China 1 Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs 0).
You can forget the concept of global warming. What matters is local warming. Citizens need to act for themselves and not for others. To focus on their country’s needs and answer the ethical questions on how they want to live their lives here, in this place.
The idea of waiting for a lead from the US or China before acting is fatal.
Think local, act local.
