Save the World

January 7, 2015



Link to an Article on Regenerative Agriculture


I was put off a bit at the name of the article linked above...
"How Can the Climate Movement Force the Billionaires and Corporations to Change Their Ways?
put off... because I am averse to force of any kind.
But... I read the article anyway.

The premise of the piece is... that... rather than environmentalists trying to change the fossil fuel economy... that they promote regenerative agriculture which will draw carbon out of the atmosphere faster than it is put in.

The thought went through my mind... "was this article planted by the oil industry...?" to try to herd protestors away from their demonstrations...? and take some of the heat off of their industry...?

I have put some thought to this subject myself...
how we can resolve the stalemate with the oil industry...?
and I've also thought...
why are we waiting for the government to solve our problems...?

I have wondered... for decades... just WHY haven't wealthy environmentalists started their own electric companies in small towns or communities...? based on solar power...?
or at the minimum... offered free symposiums on how to take advantage of government subsidies of home power sources...?

WHY haven't new housing additions been designed to have off-the-grid power...?
WHY is it so hard to find the information needed for those who are looking for it...?

WHY haven't wealthy environmentalists started their own mass transit systems...?
They could have started with just one or two buses in prime locations... and worked out a business plan from there...

They didn't need to use their own money...
just... get bank loans based on a well-designed plan.

I see a very large and wealthy rock n roll industry...
with stars who cater to the young generations...
cultural heroes...
who buy islands... who buy castles... who build extravagant houses...
who like to associate with the "upper crust" and get awards...
who set fashion trends... and invest their millions in real estate...
and adopt one or two kids from a nation whose entire population is in poverty...
and I wonder...
have they ever heard the term "capitalist pig...?"
and just what does that term mean to them...?
that it means greed and selfishness...?

does it possibly occur to them...
how the world was hoping... hoping... for help...
hoping for answers... for solutions...
hoping to be brought out of their suffering...
hoping to become a part of modern society...
and that heroes that should have been heroes...
look a whole lot more like arrogant French royalty...
wanting nothing but their drugs and sex and parties...
"let them eat cake"...
who have worn the costumes of the people...
who sang to the common people...
but... who... have abandoned us...
and have stood by while the world slides into environmental hell.

I have thought of it all... like... this...
People can be wealthy... and establish a good life for themselves...
They can tabulate their needs... security... future... childrens' futures...
And come to an established maximum wealth
with which they can live their lives in comfort and security...
and then... know... how much wealth there is left...
to raise the world up... to save the world.

How much fun would it be... to be that person who saves the world...?
if even... in one small way... if possible... in many many ways...?

If a person is such a genius that he/she has created wealth...
imagine... what good ideas they can come up with...
that isn't just... part of their "show"...
that... actually solves a problem that needs solving.

If one is really really smart...
one could MAKE MONEY... saving the earth...
and this... is what I have worked at all these decades...
ways to save the world...
ways to solve the problems of humanity...
and how one can even make money doing it.

To NOT have done something...
or anything... for the world...
makes rock n roll... and our whole generation...
a part of a horrific hypocrisy.
