Fire the Grid - Be Defined / Part 2 - The Problem
|Our world has entered a state of chaos. This earth can no longer support our present habits. She no longer has the resources to supply enough oil, wood or water to sustain all of us living on this planet.|
It is not coincidental that I am writing this problem at this time. A prime example of the situation we truly face is looming down on us. The price of oil has skyrocketed and the problem will not rectify itself. The basic supply and demand states that there is not enough oil and the prices will continue to grow.
Also at this point in history we are striving to feed millions of people throughout the world. Extreme poverty is rampant, especially in the "developing" countries. They say that right now, somewhere in the world a child dies of hunger every three seconds. This is another truth that will befall us all if we choose to do nothing to regenerate our planet. We can not raise animals or farm on land that is empty and barren, land that is full of pollutants and demineralised beyond a usable state. This is where we are headed with the farming of both animal life and vegetation. As twenty years ago we could not fathom running out of oil, many of you cannot imagine we will run out of food. We believe there will never be a time that we cannot sustain life on this planet with farming. If you believe that you are gravely mistaken. Extreme poverty is rampant, please don’t allow the fact that you can only see this on TV to desensitise you from the reality that billions of people, the so called top of the food chain, are themselves starving to death. Imagine how we treat the lesser animals of our creator.
Mother earth can no longer filter our pollutants. She is choking to death while we continue to pour more and more toxic solvents into her body. Earth is a living being. She is alive and breathing, yet we continue to treat her with complete disrespect and irreverence. Most like we treat each other. I believe as a race we have plundered the earth to this state of being. Not only have we mistreated and taken for granted our home and provider but we have also done the same to her inhabitants; the animals and plants. Within the next twenty-five years there will not be enough clean water, wood or fossil fuels left to continue supplying this planet with human essentials. To put this is perspective; billions of us will be without food, fuel or water by 2025. Explain that to your grandchildren.
Another great concern is that our oceans are changing rapidly: in some places they are warming, in others they are actually freezing because of the melting polar caps. The melting polar caps are sending millions of gallons of fresh water into a salted ocean and the seas are actually desalinizing. This means the level of salt in the ocean is diminishing and that in turn means the ocean creatures and its vegetation will die with the new water composition. This is very dangerous to us all as our ocean is the lifeblood of this planet.
The Earth has always changed: once Antarctica had a tropical climate; once Nova Scotia was actually a part of Africa and once dinosaurs thrived everywhere. There is no preventing the natural evolution of the planet. However, with our pollution we are causing global warming. And with our nuclear testing we have shifted tectonic plates. And what goes into the vast spaces left when we remove the oil from the centre of the Earth? We are escalating global changes. The severe and numerous hurricanes we have experienced in recent years are clear signs that we must make changes in how we treat this planet, or our lives will be dramatically altered.
