NYC Climate Demo: Top 5 Massive Rallies that had no Effect
Leave it to New York to have the biggest CLIMATE CHANGE march in the world.
When I was in New York June 12, 1982, I was walking with about 1,000,000 people.
We were protesting nuclear weapons then, not the climate.
It's the same deal, though.
It's either life or death for the planet.
Like everything else, unless something is on your front porch, you don't pay too much attention to it .
Well, the heating of the planet is on all of our front porches.
The house is burning.
“The warhead’s new guts, a colorful assortment of electronic and mechanical parts, lay alongside a shiny nose cone on a metal table outside an assembly hall.”
This innocuous and romantic description of a nuclear weapon is a big part of the problem.
We glamorize these horrible weapons!
Nuclear bombs haven't been used since Nagasaki and Hiroshima, so we don't pay much attention to them.
“While we still have weapons, the most important thing is to make sure they are safe, secure and reliable,” said Mr. Poneman, the deputy energy secretary.
Yes, make sure that they are safe and secure...
We don't want our nuclear bombs to fizzle out if they are used, do we?
“The administration has told the Pentagon to plan for 12 new missile submarines, up to 100 new bombers and 400 land-based missiles, either new or refurbished.”
This is to “keep up with the Jones” (Russia and China).
Our deterrent is to deter these other countries from even thinking that their atomic stuff is better than ours.
“It estimated the total cost of the nuclear enterprise over the next three decades at roughly $900 billion to $1.1 trillion.”
Jobs, jobs, jobs!
This is other news that isn't as important as the fate of the planet.
IT'S ABOUT RENEWABLE RESOURCES OIL AND THE FATE OF THE PLANET!
