One Earth: And yet again, the Saga Continues

One Earth: And yet again, the Saga Continues

聽A while ago,I started really thinking about all the back and forth on climate change andhad originally posted the yin and yang article below, on a different site. One comment I received on the article was: 鈥淚s that the best you have?鈥 At the...

Wow the 鈥渉istoric,鈥 鈥渃atastrophic,鈥 biggest ever,鈥 鈥渦nprecedented,鈥 鈥渆pic鈥 nature of a single event; of one simple hurricane. I won鈥檛 go into what the definitions of those words mean, but they either have been used recently with superficial intent to capture soundbites, or they have been used with meaningful intent. I leave that up to you all to decide and argue about and contemplate. A Category 4 hurricane in Texas, where 鈥淓ven experts have said they鈥檝e never seen one like this!鈥 Is this simply an isolated once in a lifetime event, or are other extreme weather events unfolding across the globe? Just a question. As George Santayana is attributed as saying 鈥淭hose who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.鈥 Then there is the one by Einstein: 鈥淚nsanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.鈥 And then there is Alfred North Whitehead, a defining entity in the field of process philosophy who said: 鈥淚t takes an extraordinary intelligence to contemplate the obvious.鈥 Ok, so after 120 years of mind numbing nonsense, what happens in November at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) Conference of the Parties (COP) event, COP 23 in Bonn, Germany?

Vincent Andrew No I haven't, I have seen other related articles but thank you for sharing. Not sure if you have seen Leonarado DiCaprio's "Before the Flood" but I highly recommend it, merely providing the trailer for your insight: https://www.beforetheflood.com/

Devesh 馃悵 Bhatt thanks for taking the time to reply and for the very informative perspective. I agree "we have to do better at truly understanding the present set of circumstances associated with this and related issues (Food, Energy, Water, Population) with an eye towards the collective future of mankind and our earth." The sad thing is that in many respects we have been watching the scientific and economic yin and yangism on the subject since 1896 when Svante Arrhenius, a Swedish scientist was the first to claim that fossil fuel combustion may eventually result in enhanced global warming. To me it is not an East thing. It is not a West thing, It is not a young thing. It is not an old thing. What it is, is a ONE EARTH thing. It is a journey to enlightenment and understanding before it is too late. Thank you again and all the best to you. Keep making a difference; one person, one step, one generation, one tree, and one river at a time.
