Dear Climate Campaigners: You – we – need to get serious about saving the planet. Any day now would be great. I know we’ve been at it for 30-some years, and this would be a great year to finally get it right and break through.
Climate Warriors: If we want real action on climate change, we need to know our enemy. He is not like us. He does not play fair, he plays only and always to win.
You do not confront such an enemy with candlelight vigils and protests. 350.org, I’m looking at you. If we’re serious about climate change, and we need to be, candlelight vigils are not sending that message. Vigils and rallies are not working; they are being ignored.
Climate warriors, I tell you this: You do not bargain with people willing to risk their own children. You do not trust people wrecking the very planet we all depend upon for life. Such people are dangerous fools and must be stopped. We can psychoanalyse them later.
Such reckless and greedy people will give us the respect we demand, and no more. Charge the CEOs of the oil companies with crimes against humanity Make an example of him that may scare the rest enough to get out of the way.
How do these people sleep at night after funding climate denial campaigns? Like a rich baby swaddled in the finest clothes in the warmest, safest nursery in all the world. They simply do not care about anything but themselves – they are incapable of it.
We know that that climate change will displace hundreds of millions, destroy our civilization, and quite possibly will ultimately kill billions. Yet even when we explain to deniers this risk, they stick to their scientific prostitutes and paid shills.
Climate deniers are people who reject science and the precautionary principle. You’re not going to be able to reason with them. They don’t believe in reason. Many of them believe that winning is the only thing; as I said earlier, they are predators They have a different morality. Perhaps some day there will be time to psychoanalyse these people, but right now we need to get moving.
We are out of time.
