The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change just released their final report (over a five year study) on Climate Change. The NY Times reported it is, by far, the most alarming report, indicating we could be looking at a hyper-accelarated global warming scenario in the near future. The story said an unrelated Energy Agency report recently indicated that if current policies weren’t changed — the world would warm six degrees by 2030. This would be nothing short of absolutely catastrophic. So… It’s my belief that we can’t wait for worldwide government leaders to meet in a couple months to craft what will replace the Kyoto Protocol in 2012. For those (“change agents” in your neighborhoods, churches, civic groups…) who believe the UN, and other, Climate Change reports are valid, it’s time to — in a ‘hyper-accelerated’ fashion — step up your energy conservations practices, exponentially. And this is not just about saving the planet in the future, it’s about us being responsible for killing people now. I told the Wellington News in Ohio that if our energy gluttony in America is leading to super-charged hurricanes, super-charged typhoons (2,300 dead in the Bengladesh typhoon last week, and counting); current droughts and famine in more arid countries, etc… we are, in a very real sense: killing people now! And do Americans really think that we are going to be able to play the “unintended consequences” card with God at Judgement on this thing? I mean if we know there is a distinct: cause and effect. C’mmon. This isn’t moral theology rocket science. This is simply what it is: killing people! (For instance, turning on the air conditioning in America is like metaphorically pulling the trigger on a gun that shoots slow motion bullets at people starving to death from global warming, drought caused famine in Nigeria.) As a presidential candidate, I would strongly suggest all American ‘change agents’ out there start sacrificing tremendously and influencing as many others as possible, now! Note: For suggestions on how to do this, see our Energy Policy. Note 2: For our campaign supporters: We need supportive letters to the editor about our campaign to Ohio newspapers. Just google “Ohio newspapers,” and go to the letter to the editor e-mail links on the various papers. It’s important this starts happening now in the context of our current Ohio strategy. Thanks.
