Is there finally a cure in place for our ailing planet?

Due to decades of addiction, the planet has been battling a life threatening case of acute fossil fuel toxicity. Chronic symptoms include severe drought, dangerous floods and deadly heat waves. Immediate intervention is required for recovery.

First responders at The COP21 Climate Change Summit have reacted to the toxic crisis attempting to stabilize the potential deadly threat.

Treatment plans now seems to be in place for ailing Mother Earth.

The halls of the Paris Climate Accord have morphed into a critical care unit in order to reign in rising green gas emissions, the final stage of toxicity. Carbon cutting has clinically demonstrated proven efficacy in acute fossil fuel toxicity.

This historic plan to transform the world’s fossil fuel driven economy is no easy fix, requiring a multi pronged course of treatment.

Fossil Fuel Fatality

In this 1948 ad from McNally Pittsburgh Coal, they boast with delight at all the profits they make with a celebratory parade. Today it behooves the energy companies to now get on the clean energy bandwagon

Treating the the Big Energy Industries, is a challenge.

Suffering from Chronic Fossil Fuel Fixation Syndrome a degenerate and highly contagious disease characterized by the distinctive oversize carbon footprint,  gross swelling  of profits, severe myopic vision, paranoid delusion and greed, the  energy industries have long contaminated the planet’s inhabitants creating a massive dependency issue.

Will this be the end of the Fossil Fuel era as many predict? This 1948 ad from Pennsylvania Railroad is a celebration of American Industrial might. “Coal, gas, petroleum and electricity, these basic sources of energy are available in abundance in the territory served by Pennsylvania Railroad,” the copy proudly point out in an attempt to lure more industry to the areas served by their railroad.

After a century or more of overindulgence, Mother Earth’s inhabitants are now exhibiting the late stages of addiction. The hallmark signs are evident – impaired control over a substance, preoccupation and continued use despite consequences and denial of its harm.

Left untreated, addiction to fossil fuels is often fatal.

A shift in energy renewals is often well tolerated with patients suffering withdrawal from this chronic and often life threatening condition.

It is important for a clean energy future to not only get patients well but also to keep them well, in order to avoid a relapse.

Warning: Some industrialized nations with a preponderance of climate deniers are associated with a greater risk of relapse.
