and frankly, there is no time for discussion, its time to act, holistically or otherwise.
Once You Know ...

“What is meaningful work on the way down?”

‘Acceptable’ forms of influence are not working.

In 1992 when the Union of Concerned Scientists warned that “a great change in our stewardship of the Earth and the life on it is required, if vast human misery is to be avoided and our global home on this planet is not to be irretrievably mutilated” (World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity; Union of Concerned Scientists, 1992)

Lobbyists for fossil fuel corporations benefit from much greater access to political processes than is available to scientists or environmental campaigners.

In 2018, the fossil fuel industry spent over US$125 million lobbying politicians in the United States alone (Lobbying Spending Database Oil & Gas, 2018 | OpenSecrets).

Fossil fuel corporations have invested heavily in misinformation and an anti-science agenda with the express purpose of delaying action on climate change; alongside complicit governments, they have convinced the world to carry on as normal.

If we can no longer carry on as normal and we are 'literally' running out of time ...

We would not listen in 1992 ... are we 'act'-ually ready to listen now?

In facing interconnected planetary emergencies threatening our climate and ecosystems ...

Charlie J. Gardner / Claire F. R. Wordley argue that scientists should join civil disobedience movements.

and frankly, there is no time for discussion, its time to act, holistically or otherwise.
So why are we discussing it instead of getting ourselves arrested?

Stop reading books by people who have no understanding of how things work.

IN REAL LIFE
'Misguided politicians' dismiss climate change predictions as exaggerated or even fabricated ...

... and the misguided public votes for their own extinction in favor of a 1 billion dollar profit for the Koch brothers!

September is ecological action month. Please join. Here is a 30 day challenge from Kairos
KAIROS: Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives
7 hrs ·
Today's 30 Day Challenge for Climate Action Month involves learning about the traditional territories of Turtle Island. This morning at the KAIROS staff retreat our very own Dawn Maracle opened us up in a good way by explaining the Dish with One Spoon Covenant.

Overly emotional people are opposed to intelligence ... as they can't gather such non materialistic existence! Black Energy personified ... in white coverage ...

Silky as any black Mamba ... slick as elle or any Selkie! Those that have gone down --- William what'-his-name!

Stefan Molyneux is a fascist white supremacist. Google his name and you will see for yourself. He spreads extreme anti Semitic sentiment and racist pseudoscientific information, and other really awful rhetoric. He’s anti-immigration in the extreme. He’s a Neonazi.

Molyneux is pretty snakey.

If money was a measurement of intelligence, I suspect this guy is very poor.
Thus the concept of hidden bread ... immaterial in the mental zone? There are those that see things immaterial as something to make of ...

Breadfruit in the top of the odd tree scheme .. a spinoff of all conspiracies consummate! They may start up in a flash as one steps out of the real lying hatefulness ...

As Greta said in the interview above- the difference between America and Europe is, that climate crisis is not a belief but a fact in Europe.

It’s a fact everywhere. It’s just treated as an optional opinion here. (Well, ‘here’ where I live there aren’t very many climate change non-believers. I’ve only met one who isn’t from BC. There are too many in North America generally, though.)

Which makes it weird that anyone would vote for someone who doesn’t believe it’s a fact.
Just because people accept it as a fact doesn't mean they take it as a serious problem. They think things like, "We were all told Y2K was going to be a huge disaster and it wasn't, right?" Except what gets forgotten is that Y2K wasn't a huge disaster because guys like me busted our asses and fixed systems to make sure it wasn't. Climate change can be the same but there's a lot more people in a lot more fields that need to bust their asses and not all of them are pulling their weight (I'm looking at you, politicians).

Especially them. It can’t be all up to consumers being given bad choices and all the hard work of avoiding those choices, when, for some, they go with the cheapest choices (ie plastic vs wooden forks or whatever, just came to mind), or whatever’s there, out of necessity...like products in too much packaging, disposable plastic goods because they’re cheap, etc. Gas vs electric vehicles...and on and on.

One must conform to what the other believes because we really don't believe that we know anything personally ... because of negative conditioning that is presented as positive and opportunistic for the individual ... when it isn't!
