|02:40 pm - So you won't sign onto Kyoto eh?|
One of my friends made a comment to me about the environment which jump-started my brain into remembering that I wanted to make a post regarding the last few days of blazing, sun-surface temperature. For the better part of this week, here in southern Ontario and from what I hear, large portions of the United States, it's been blistering hot. I'm talking high 30's with humidity that pushes it up to feel like it's in the 40's (using degrees Celsius here cuz I'm Canadian). Several records got busted, and USA government buildings had to open up to the public to allow them to go in and cool off (since obviously, while it's 40 degrees outside, that must mean that inside government building's it'd be -30 degrees).
So Bush...don't like the Kyoto Protocol eh? Don't like how it's going to drop the profits of those multi-billion dollar corporations eh? Don't like how it's going to possibly restrict the growth of your economy eh? WELL FUCKING TOUGH!!! And for the rest of you nations that _DID_ sign on, what's with this policy of allowing nations to SELL and BUY pollution emission credits?? What kind of non-sensical policy is that and who the freak came up with it?! (If someone says it's the USA I'm seriously going to start making plans to reduce the White House and Capital Hill to a mere volcanic crater). You guys completely missed the point of the treaty if you think pollution is something you can buy and sell. So you went over your own alloted amount of pollution emission, and you go to some third world nation and buy their's....well here's some news for you Einsteins, the excess pollution you emit is still going to be hovering over YOUR OWN CITIES!!
You politicians think you can beat Mother Nature? Fine, bring it on. Keep polluting, keep making craptacular excuses for yourselves, keep being selfish and greedy. A couple more hurricanes to kill off a few thousand people, a few more heat waves in the coming years to kill another few thousand, add some acid rain to erode away your buildings and infrastructure and then we'll see who's got the upper hand in this match. Fuck if I was still a kid right now I'd be throwing rocks throw government buildings' windows demanding they immediately put into place conservation laws, I mean you greedy goddamn adults might not care what's gonna happen 100 years down the road but your forgetting the next generation's going to be bearing the consequences of _YOUR_ actions.
I hope the next time there's a mass blackout it's going to be the entire continent of North America and that it lasts for at least 2 weeks. Even if I have to go without the net, if it'll finally teach the retards of this society a lesson than it's more than worth it. I'm dying to see you little ants at Wall Street scramble in the dark and you over in Washington go into hysterics at not being able to detect any missiles fired your way.
Current Mood: tired
You can still throw rocks at Government Building windows if you're an adult, silly =P

I don't think a humongous blackout would teach the people on Capital Hill anything. It's always the poor minority that suffers first in situations like that and we all know George Bush doesn't care about black people! Face it: North America is run by rich WASPs who'll somehow manage to survive a blackout comfortably while everyone else suffers. Short of the world ending, I just don't see Bush and his cronies admitting that they're wrong about global warming.

I agree with the above comment. I mean, Canadian cities are just as liable for contributing to the increased emissions of greenhouse gases. Most of Toronto's garbage is transported 300 km to Michigan, and the city is still in ruins over garbage and recyclables that are deposited in the trash. If European, American and Japanese auto makers would reduce the production of luxuries autos and SUVs, if USA were to sign onto the Montreal and Kyoto protocals, if the top 15 Industrialized nations (USA,China,Japan,Germany,Canada & Co.)were to implement mandatory recycling programs and institutions, it would contribute to the elimination of drastic levels of CO2 and greenhouse gases that are damaging the physical environment and ozone. At the rate we consume energy and waste physical resources, we will be fuelling a cycle of "natural" disasters and social chaos that we never could have imagined.-James
That's just my point, the industrialized nations do shit about anything of any importance these days. They create the Kyoto Protocol as if they give a rat's ass about the environment, then change the policies so they can buy and sell emmission credits, that's bullshit.
