This is a compilation about the obscene profits reaped by the fossil fuel industry and the indefensible government subsidies ($1 TRILLION per year!) — tax breaks, incentives, loopholes — it benefits from / exploits.
Given the clear, present, accelerating global impacts of the climate crisis; the risk of irreversible, runaway climate breakdown / disruption / destabilization within the lives of today’s children; and the EMERGENCY speed with which the world must transform to a post-carbon economy in order to preserve the safe, fragile climate balance that organized civilization depends on…
the perversity of ‘business as usual’ is a BETRAYAL of life and threat to our survival RIGHT NOW.
Subsidies must be redirected to phase out our current suicidal / ecocidal / biocidal / progenycidal (future generations), fossil fuel-based / addicted, greenhouse gas-intensive global economy and stimulate one grounded in clean, ZERO carbon, everlasting (wind, solar, geothermal, tidal) energy and conservation AS SOON AND AS FAST AS POSSIBLE.
Get informed. Get inspired. Get involved and help to motivate bold, new, transformative approaches and ‘just’, resilient, EMERGENCY RESPONSES to the climate crisis FAST.
