Now standing alone, Donald Trump and his cold-hearted compadres of climate deniers have turned their back on poor, sickly Mother Earth, as the only country to reject the Paris Climate Agreement. Just as Trump is intent on dismantling our health care system so he has cast a blind eye on our debilitated planet.
Is it any surprise that under Dr. Trump’s care the United States, the once-upon-a time-moral leader of the free world is now the only country not part of the Paris Climate Agreement, now that Syria has signed the pact. That landmark agreement holds out hope of finally finding a cure for our ailing Mother Earth.
And make no mistake, she has been very, sick.
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.
All counties agree. Except apparently the U.S.
First responders at The COP21 Climate Change Summit a few years ago had reacted to the toxic crisis attempting to stabilize the potential deadly threat.
Treatment plans seemed to be in place for ailing Mother Earth.
The halls of the Paris Climate Accord had 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 was no easy fix, requiring a multi pronged course of treatment.
Fossil Fuel Fatality
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.
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.
