Kill Kill Kill the Poor

   Unchartered Territory Imperils Life On Earth, "By end of 21st C, as many as 3 - 6 billion people may find themselves outside Earth’s liveable regions, meaning they will be encountering severe heat, limited food availability, elevated mortality rates.”
   Translation: the super rich are going to kill the poor, billions of them, unless we stop them. Do you really understand how utterly serious this is? Our sense of morality? What could be more obscene than to read this and then not go into resistance?

15,000 Scientists Warn Society Could Collapse

   A warning from 15,000 scientists, “Life on planet Earth is under siege. We are now in an uncharted territory. For several decades, scientists have consistently warned of a future marked by extreme climatic conditions because of escalating global temperatures caused by ongoing human activities that release harmful greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere. Unfortunately, time is up. We are seeing the manifestation of those predictions as an alarming and unprecedented succession of climate records are broken, causing profoundly distressing scenes of suffering to unfold. We are entering an unfamiliar domain regarding our climate crisis, a situation no one has ever witnessed firsthand in the history of humanity.”

“What are our responsibilities at this time? Because of the fossil fuel industry, we are facing horrors of a magnitude never before experienced in our existence. Our government continues to lead us to the edge of no return. We must stand up and defend ourselves. No one else is going to do it. It must be us, if we want to live.
Our methods must be disruptive, and they must be nonviolent. Our actions are evidence-based, credible, and we have a plan. The only thing missing at this point in time is YOU!”
