Some folks take most of the resources and produce most of the toxins…for how long?

“It (our inaction) is structural, based on the huge obligations we face from aging populations and other pressing needs for infrastructure, education, health care and the like.’ said the U.S. representative at a recent international climate conference. Hmmm, I thought it was the fact that we have by far the largest and most expensive military war-making machine the world has ever known. Oh, this is what is to protect some wealthy Americans when all those  people around the world are dying and see a few rich folks comfortably issuing platitudes backed up by force and our American brand of state terrorism.  I understand the anger of those directly affected and the fear of those who are the cause of this. The tragedy is that, ultimately, military force and terrorist action is totally incapable of successfully resolving this crisis. The rest of us do what we can.

  1. I notice a tendency on this blog to report ‘news’ that is pretty depressing, as if that’s all that we do or notice. So I’ll add a Comment that last night we attended a dress-up event at Villanova (Mendel Award dinner) and learned something of the mysteries of string theory from the honoree, a foremost mathematician in this esoteric area. It was fun, social, educational and perhaps inspirational in some ways, and used an amount of energy commensurate with the value of sociability and education. We don’t just sit at home and frown at the world, but try to live both responsibly and happily, while walking lightly over this earth.
