Need More Proof? Commerce and Climate Change.

Today, March 31, 2014, the IPCC released its latest report about climate change. As I was making my bed, I chanced to have the Weather Channel playing on my television. The “meteorologist” was interviewing a scientist who was part of the IPCC and was offering his take on what the report reported. He went through the findings of the report about Climate Change, and was about to speak about what could be done about it. The “meteorologist” interrupted him in mid-sentence, and cut him off. This pressing need to interrupt was so that a commercial about a palliative for heartburn, then something to end your constipation could be shown. Commerce, always. The greed and hubris of capitalism writ large. Profit is far more important than the end of the world as we know it.
