Climate change – System change

Again climate change is on the agenda. Almost half a million people marched in New York and folk from all walks of life are making their voices heard; be it aging rock stars, indigenous elders, renegade politicians and sons and daughters of desist leaders. And of course you and me, the anonymous ones; the ones that don’t really count in this equation. Though this is the big mistake, we might not make the headlines, but at the end of the day, it will be up to you and me to make this change happen.
I am happy they are calling it climate change and not global warming, there is something more real about this statement since we really don’t know where it will all go.
I am unhappy they are addressing climate change; caused by fossil fuel emissions as the reason for the disease, rather than acknowledge that this is just another symptom of the sickness infecting every facet of the lives we live.
I really don’t want to sound negative or to make any of you feel there is no hope, but really; how can anyone be such a fool to think that we can fix the pollution affecting climate change, caused by a fossils fuel based economy without going to the core of it.                                                                      

And the truth is, that we will never be able to address this story as long as our economic narrative is guided and dominated by a bunch of megalomaniac lunatics sitting of the helm of the giant corporation ruling the world and setting the agenda.
So as long as the corporate globalisations story is the tale we believe in and follow, then forget about any meaningful change to the conditions accelerating the rise in global temperature, because this is not in the interest of the money masters. The oil and coal companies will continue to champion non-renewable energy because this is how they make big money.
Why do you think BP and Shell bought so many stakes in solar energy for instance- to slow the process of course and maintain a high cost to a technology that by now should have evolved to be cheaper and more efficient.  And this is not only about oil companies. Forty percent of all greenhouse gasses come from corporate driven agriculture. So, as long as companies such as Monsanto are handed the responsibility for the future of our food, how can we imagine a solution to climate change.

The corporations are pretending to be green and concerned and are pouring billions of dollars into public relation campaigns to shed wool over our eyes, and are telling us lies about job losses etc. First, there are no jobs on a dead planet, and on a healthy planet, there are more jobs, that are less centralised in the hands of the corporate ladder. And this is possible if we go the way of renewable energy, and even better, free and unlimited energy.
This is not going to happen by following examples like that clown Al Gore who made us all change our light bulbs to so called energy efficient ones which are actually toxic and affect our energy field while lowering our vibration levels when using them
So, in reality asking for action on climate change is naïve, as long as the extreme capitalist agenda is the one we are following and participating in. We need a system change and then naturally the greedy corporate forces will stop charting the human agenda and logically we will shift to natural and sensible solutions. Ones that have been available for a long time, but have been blocked and suppressed because they support people and environment before profits.
Please, do not believe anything that will come from another summit and another summit and more talk and bla bla. It is absolutely not possible to address this issue as something separate from our banking system for instance or our corrupt political system or the way we live our lives as consumers rather as users of commodities.
Radical change is needed here and a painful surgery to address the way we have been walking on planet earth. as though we have unlimited planets to exploit, use and throw away. The earth is our mother, not a resource or the open mine of the corporations.
So lets campaign for system change and all else will follow. Once we have a system that cares for people and earth before profits, naturally the whole issue of fossil fuel economy would be discarded as yesterday’s news and a new paradigm will emerge. A way of life that nurtures everyone and looks seven generations ahead as many indigenous people do when they think about the consequences of their actions.

Another world is possible, but we have to be serious about it and stop going from one stopgap measure to another. Together we can make it happen.
