The Real Revelations re: Hurricanes Like Katrina & Rita ...
As hurricane Rita roles remorselessly toward Texas, This Old Brit asks that one thing about today's blog entry be understood, straight from the start.
The overwhelming majority of the world's civilised citizens, sincerely send their sympathy in advance to all those regular Americans, soon set to suffer from the coming storm, in some way or another.
Make no mistake though - there will be a misguided minority of mindless bigots who will almost certainly, somehow seek to show that any ensuing misery is simply some sort of summary justice.
Whilst wanting, whole heartedly, to distance themselves from such creeps as are sure to surface shouting sickening slogans like 'Nya, nya, told ya so' and 'What ya gonna do now, start a war with the weather' -- the eminently more enlightened amongst us will, none the less, have to be heard.
Wake up, America -- or worse will be on it's way.
So many signs have, for so long, been there for all to see. Global warming is already wreaking havoc across the greater part of the planet. The irrefutable and ever increasing evidence that's already emerged is inarguable. It's a fact of life - whether on not certain factions still steadfastly refuse to face it.
The polar caps are, and have been for years, melting. By the year, the month, the week, the day and indeed, even by the very hour. One can either believe it or deny it, but one can not escape it.
Unheard of heatwaves throughout Europe continue to kill more & more people each passing year. Record breaking and rapidly rising high temperatures are repeatedly being recorded. That too, is an irrefutable fact.
Vast swathes of the Indian sub continent and Asia, along with ever increasing areas of Europe are now regularly flooded - including many regions of the UK. And that's not fantasy, friends, that's yet one more fact.
This Old Brit knows it -- because he sees it -- for himself.
The forever more ferocious forest fires, now witnessed on a regular basis, in places as far apart as Portugal - part of the Iberian peninsular - and Australia at the other end of the globe, bear witness to worse things yet to come.
And come they will.
Unless, that is, those holding the power to prevent the planet's life-supporting-system's irreversable decline, decide to impliment immediately the urgently required appropriate action.
America's hurricanes draw their energy from the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico - that's a proven scientific fact. And as the earth's temperature rises relentlessly, so does that of the sea.
Inevitably, the extra energy available for feeding hurricanes' forces, proliferates proportionaly. Period.
By far the greatest contributing factor to this super-stupifying state of affairs, is the ever increasing emission of carbon dioxide into our life supporting atmosphere. Again, it's an unarguable part of science's repeatedly proven formula. Not to mention so many sensible folk's self evident, personal observations and experiences.
The United States of America is, and has been for many years, the undisputed, world champion polluter when it comes to carbon dioxide emissions.
The incumbent, indifferent ignoramus inhabiting Washington's once so well respected White House -- accompanied by his current, criminal-cabal-crew, continues encouraging all his country's diverse communities to ignore the inescapable.
Put plainly, in layman's language - serial denials 'R them.
So please, wake up America, while you're still able. Don't let a lousy lot of lying leaders change your cherished American Dream, into a nightmare.
May God bless, help and save every decent, honest American. They deserve so much better than Bushco.
And may he take care of Texans at this traumatic time, too.
Here endeth the lesson.
