Schoolchildren Asked To Celebrate Fossil Fuels And Mining On Earth Day

Since it's Sunday morning I'll pre-delete the expletives that are bouncing around in my head. Of all of the stories of the day this is the most disturbing. About thirty years ago our scientists realized and then warned us that burning fossil fuels in large quantities, like we do, is a blunder. The fossil fuel interests KNOW this to be the truth yet, like a monkey in a coconut trap, they won't let go of all those revenue producing hydrocarbons. The result is going to be far more damaging than anything mentioned in the post. Sadly. many people still think that everything is going to be just fine. They are wrong. Forgive me for sharing but... { http://arctic-news.blogspot.co.uk/p/global-extinction-within-one-human.html } Yes, it says EXTINCTION, and in the near term. I don't know where we would be without coal, oil and mining but I know where we are now!
