Dynamic Equilibrum

earth-unravellingWe are addicted to fossil fuel. In the boardrooms of big oil and coal everything else comes second to their profit margin. This is a fact few can deny. I honestly believe these corporations would willingly lay waste to the entire planet in order to suck the last drop of oil from her. . . just like an addict will lay his body to waste for that final fix.

In today’s world, we are encompassed by a vast amount of negativity. So much so that it is difficult for one to keep his head above water, BUT there are also great things in the works. Intelligent ideas containing the power to make a difference for all of us are on the rise.

It’s only a matter of time until the fossil fuel industry runs out of product. Everybody knows this but them, and yet . . . the beat goes on.

How do these ‘drill baby drill’ guys answer the cry from those of us concerned for the well-being of our planet? They say, “you guys are tree hugging wacko’s . . . everything’s fine, this depletion stuff is all just liberal inspired bullshit . . . after all God gave us this earth to subdue, right?”

On and on the argument goes. Remember how long it took the cigarette corporations to even hint that smoking may be bad for your health? The frackers have far more rocks to hide under than the tobacco boys ever did.

The question for today is, “How can we continue this course of existing on fossil fuels and NOT at some date in the near future run out of product? We can’t, it is physically impossible regardless of how the fossil fuel industries promote their agenda.

BUT there is another side to the story. One that has THINKING people working hard to find a way towards putting this cess pool of greed out of business and yet maintain our (pared down, but pleasing) lifestyle. People like the guy who made this video.

I can’t say I agree with all of it, but I doubt that is necessary. The foundation he is creating is sure to be the one taken after this current system falls apart . . . at least I hope so.

If we fail as a people to adapt and the planet drives us to extinction because of our ignorance, if it takes our planet a zillion years to recoup from our abuse. I hope next time we get it right . . . and if we do I believe it will take place somewhat along these lines . . .
