Human Life in imminent danger from
a runaway deadly Global Warming
By Toni Bernstein

There are apparently some people who think that the current
"Greenhouse Effect" will simply lead to an "evolutionary"
change in the global climate, so that climatic areas in
the northern hemisphere like Canada, Scandinavia, Russia,
Alaska in the U.S., and Antarctica in the southern hemisphere
will become like one big tropical resort area like Tahiti,
Cuba, or Jamaica. Soon everyone will be enjoying glorious
sunshine, and sipping exotic tropical drinks in Nova Scotia,
Baffin Island in the Canadian Arctic, or around the Arctic
waters of Siberia, according to people with this apparent
view. These people profess a dislike for the cold, and
they therefore welcome any change that might eventually
get rid of their abhored winter blaaaaahs.
Unfortunately for these people, such a view is not supported
by critical scientific evidence, beyond "scientific
infomercials" and propaganda pieces that have been
sponsored by various well-financed Big Business interests.
Indeed, it has been the job of the largely corporate owned
mass-media in Canada, and elsewhere, to channel viewers,
readers, and listeners into responses which will complement
the elite pursuit of insatiable commercial profit. This
corporate owned mass-media does not want to draw public
attention to the dire fate which awaits the public, if
'the Economy' is not rejuvenated in a manner that minimizes
social and environmental costs.
The large scale 'owners of capital' have structured the
prevailing capitalistic economy to principally serve their
interests in the pursuit of money, status, and power for
themselves. Like heroine or "crack" cocaine
drug addicts, 'capitalistocrats' have become so addicted
to the pursuit of a self-absorbing materialistic lifestyle
predicted on money, status, and power, they would much
rather apparently destroy our planet, and all life along
with it, than to change their ways of drug-like abuse.
Indeed, the mass-media in the prevailing capitalistocratic
systems of Canada, the United States, United Kingdom,
continental Europe, and elsewhere, are no less corrupt
than the politicians which they are supposedly "holding
The mass-media has apparently covered-up the fate that
awaits humanity, and the rest of our planet, if there
is not an immediate substantive response to the Global
Warming threat beyond the relatively superficial responses
associated with the extremely slow responses to fulfilling
the relatively superficial Kyoto Protocol. Indeed, failure
to redress Global Warming with great alacrity, will not
mythically result in northern hemispheres being turned
into extensions of "tropical paradises".
The cold air masses that hover over the Arctic and Antarctic
climatic areas of the planet are absolutely vital to moderating
the temperatures of planet Earth. Global Warming by the
irresponsible activities of greed driven private enterprises
under American led "global capitalism", are
destroying these vital climatic areas at an alarming rates.
As a human species, we have already witnessed deadly heat
waves and humidity. The accompanying worsening cancer
causing ultra violet (UV) rays due to rapid accompanying
ozone depletion is already creating experiences which
almost feel like a form of radiation poisoning. Further
accompanying weather cataclysms including more devastating
hurricanes like Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans in late
Summer 2005, and other such ''weather events" are
only a relatively small tip of the iceberg so-to-speak.
The "hellish" summer of 2005 internationally
has poignantly showed relative to the comparatively milder
Summer 2004, that changes due to the abusive activities
by human beings on the planet can be sudden, and extremely
drastic. The current quantuum advancing devastating destructive
impacts of American-led "global capitalism"
are threatening to precipitate a catastrophic global drought
in vital agricultural areas internationally that the world
has never ever seen; due to unending rising temperatures,
that will make the traditional temperature characteristics
of the tropics today (that have benefited from Arctic
and Antarctic moderation) seem like comparative ice boxes.
Worsening "hellish" summers will lead into hellish
other parts of the year also, with the prospective disappearance
of the Arctic and Antarctic climatic areas. The inevitable
result of such allowed phenomenon will be an ensuing Global
Famine that so far, the world has also never seen spreading
from the United States and Canada, into Europe and the
rest of the World.
The rising temperatures of the oceans would eventually
completely destroy all vital air (oxygen) producing plankton.
A global crisis in agricultural production would be further
accompanied by the cascading rapid dying out of all species
in the ocean. The oceans would become dead polluted waters
(the Gulf of Mexico has already been basically destroyed,
with other parts of the ocean following pursuit).
In such a milieu of Global Famine, the world would be
taken over by various warring military camps threatening
each other with nuclear annihilation, and privately-run
"terrorist" organizations trying to forcibly
acquire what little of the Earth is left, for the exclusive
use of elites, criminal syndicates, and gangs, leaving
"masses" to perish in a milieu of spiralling
global starvation, and poverty in a climate of socio-economic
chaos and societal upheaval. Indeed, the mass-media has
hypocritically ignored the extent to which 'capitalism'
is actually the root cause of growing apparent "terrorism"
as more and more people are turning to violent political
extremism, in the face of environmental destruction, related
oppression, and overall declines in quality-of-living.
Having destroyed the air-producing ocean life, and rainforests
under a greed driven ethos of capitalism, soon even the
Global Air Supply would become threatened with the overall
rapid decay of vital ecosystems. Global Warming promises
the convert the whole Earth not into a tropical paradise,
but rather into a giant coffin, where all life on the
planet will miserably perish. The Earth will eventually
become very similar to Mars sooner than you think, unless
the whole economic system can rejuvenated from its self-destructive
path of Global Warming and accompanying pollution including
ozone depletion. The human race will simply become a footnote
for other possible space exploring advanced species in
the universe to study in their future scientific missions
of archaeological discovery, unless humanity changes from
its current overall destructive ways.
People in their communities can either choose to play
Ninetendo games, and worry about various other materialistic
lifestyle considerations in "blissful ignorance",
in the image of the elites who prevail over self-destructive
capitalistocracies, or alternatively, people can choose
to rally their governments for vitally needed social change.
'Sober' members of the diverse public must either become
actively engaged in redressing the shortcomings of the
prevailing economic system, or face the dire consequences
of their jaded attitudes. Members of the diverse public
who are concerned about their immediate quality-of-survival
cannot afford to be complacent. These members of the diverse
public must use what little that remains of destroyed
democratic systems (that have been taken-over by the substantive
operation of 'capitalistocracy') to challenge corrupted
Government leaders have allowed themselves to be seduced
and "bought-out" by self-serving greed-driven
interests, that operate against the vital affirmation
of the quality-of-living interests of the diverse public
that these leaders were supposedly elected to serve; and
against the interests of quality-of-living seeking human
beings internationally. So far, these government leaders
have chosen to substantively ignore capitalistocractic
activities that precipitate Global Warming, and accompanying
pollution and worsening poverty which are being executed
by "generous donors" to their political campaigns,
that prop-up their political power. People must either
turn away en masse, from the norms of the prevailing capitalism
that has corrupted the integrity of democratic systems,
or face certain Mars-like global self-destruction.
