Fucking Mother Earth

By Michael J.W. Stickings

I'm sorry, but there's just no other title suitable for a post on the denial of the very real threat of climate change. Not when a story like this comes out:

The Bush administration has blocked release of a report that suggests global warming is contributing to the frequency and strength of hurricanes, the journal Nature reported Tuesday.

Where to begin? What to say? It's so fucking stupid and so fucking arrogant and so fucking crazy and it may already be too fucking late to do anything about it anyway. These climate change deniers, and that means Bush at the head of a whole array of deniers in and out of public life, are like Holocaust deniers. It's that fucking serious. Instead of denying the past, however, they deny the present and the future. They think it's a hoax, or they just don't give a shit, or all they care about is fucking the whole world for their own self-interest, or all of that together.

And soon we may all be fucked, along with our planet, because these fucking idiots refuse to do anything about, refuse even to acknowledge, the enormous crisis that looms all around us and that, from all we know, has already begun to overwhelm us, to destroy us.

No, there are no apologies here. I've had it with them all. If they don't give a fuck about us and our planet, why should we give a fuck about them? They're fucking insane.

(On a calmer note, see my previous post on Katrina, Rita, and climate change here.)
