now china can see they need to act - they pledge to be carbon neutral by 2060 , so there is hope developing and hopefully growing
stand back and take a look at the new tech jobs and a huge industry we all could create , millions of people working in jobs where we all are involved in a clean sustainable future giving our desendants a good heathy life where wild life is encouraged , heathy living is a given , with clean air , no pollution in oceans ,or in the soil
we did not have to go down this route , it could have been with a bit of thought been much better , but we as humans need to get together and stop this madness how we live -we could live clean with a few changes , it is that simple , get on board
Yes, China will be the moral leader of the world in the future. That much, you and I agree on.
The first great environmental disaster was the cleanup of the West with the institution of strict environmental regulations. This sent the environmentally destructive means of production away from the West to the second and third world where there were no environmental restrictions. Being free of any regards for the environment, environmentally destructive means of production flourished and increased likely threefold. Thanks China and western environmentalists!
The second great environmental disaster was institution of fluorescent lamp mandates which saw vast quantities of Mercury dumped along our roadways and even School yards. But that one's pretty much all on us.
The third great environmental disaster was the institution of recycling mandates in the West. With no regard for whether or not those carefully "collected, sorted, and shipped, recyclables" sent to second and third world countries, would be simply emptied out into the ocean. But that's what you get when you pay someone to take something that you are pretending is valuable, but is actually just garbage.
The fourth great environmental disaster is still in progress. The new CO2 emission mandates have sprouted a new line of production in second and third world countries for products which are supposedly going to reduce CO2 emissions. But just as in the first great environmental disaster, little to no regard is being given to pollution and environmental destruction created by production of those products in second and third world countries so that the West can feel better about itself. And better we do feel about ourselves, unless you examine the reality of the situation instead of just the headline.
But slide makes a good case for what the fifth great environmental disaster will be. The rise of China as the dominant world power will see the eventual end of all environmentalism. One could even say that with the example of the financial slavery that many African countries are already being subjected to by China, it has already begun. There is no question as to China's ambitions as they have actively sought to outpace the US Navy in naval power, via the production of the last 10 years. And it is clear that China stands to benefit greatly by environmental restrictions imposed in the West. These restrictions will cripple the West economically, and allow China to set world policy in the future, while at the same time making China more money. China's track record is also that of going back on their word with regard to any moral promises that the country's leadership has made.
So the future to which slide is happily moving forward into as a pawn, will be the greatest environmental tragedy the humanity has ever visited upon the Earth. But fortunately, the totalitarian regime of China, or likely a descendant of Chinese authoritarianism, will make sure that the history books are rewritten. Anyone questioning their narrative, will be sent to a work camp to die or have their organs harvested - before working 18 hours a day while malnourished damages those precious organs.
For me, the saddest thing is that you cannot even blame those pawns like slide and SimonP, who don't have the capacity to understand the future we are heading into. And it is once again being created by the "Environ-Mentally-Insane" and "Environ-Mentally-Challenged", both wittingly and unwittingly, respectively.
