Many ignorant people will dispute that global warming, or climate change, is occurring on the earth, but 98 percent of reputable scientists know that such a situation is rapidly developing, and weather evidence is growing which alarms anyone who wants to notice and accept reality!
The irony of the whole situation is that the rapidly melting ice caps in the Arctic are allowing oil companies to make deals, as now with the Russian government, to allow vastly increased exploration for oil drilling, which can make tremendous profits for those oil companies, such as Exxon-Mobil and British Petroleum, with the Russian government not concerning itself with environmental damage, but rather with economic advantages for the wealthy executives and government leaders who will profit from the oil deals!
So the ability for easier and further oil drilling by the reality of global warming is the ultimate irony–that we are seeing the worsening of the crisis with leadership putting their “heads in the sand” and worshipping wealth over health and safety of future generations,. who will suffer from the damage done in the name of capitalism over human needs!
So what else is new?
