Super-Rich are wrecking the planet and this is why "Earth Hour" is so ridiculous!


Super-Rich are wrecking the planet and this is why "Earth Hour" is so ridiculous!

It is not your fault and you have rights to be angry. These statements should
open everyone's eyes and prove that people are being tricked. Earth Hour is terrible, and not just because the symbolism of darkness is very poorly thought out. The worst thing about Earth Hour is that it tricks people into thinking they’ve done something useful by turning off the lights for 60 minutes, and lets the real villains in the climate change story off the hook.

By focusing on individual behaviour, Earth Hour sends out the message that ordinary citizens are the ones to blame for climate change. It passes on the unhelpful message that all we need to do is change our lightbulbs and do more recycling and everything will be fine. Every time someone says that environmentalists are nagging busybodies obsessed with making you turn your TV off standby before you go to bed, Earth Hour has contributed to that.

Just 90 of the world’s largest companies are responsible for two thirds of all man-made carbon emissions. The blame for extreme weather, hurricanes, flooding, rising seas, forced migration, drought and the resultant death is squarely on their shoulders. BP and ExxonMobil have known about climate change for decades, and yet have spent millions funding lobby groups and politicians that deny the science and delay action, just so they can make more money.

People should be angry. They should be furious about how the super-rich are wrecking the planet. They shouldn't be tricked by celebrities into thinking they've done something useful by sitting in the dark for an hour.

                             Evidence of Climate Change :
Warming Oceans

The oceans have absorbed much of this increased heat, with the top 700 meters (about 2,300 feet) of ocean showing warming of 0.302 degrees Fahrenheit since 1969.

Shrinking Ice Sheets
 The Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have decreased in mass. Data from NASA's Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment show Greenland lost 150 to 250 cubic kilometers (36 to 60 cubic miles) of ice per year between 2002 and 2006, while Antarctica lost about 152 cubic kilometers (36 cubic miles) of ice between 2002 and 2005.

Ocean Acidification

 Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the acidity of surface ocean waters has increased by about 30 percent. This increase is the result of humans emitting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and hence more being absorbed into the oceans. The amount of carbon dioxide absorbed by the upper layer of the oceans is increasing by about 2 billion tons per year.

Would you still celebrate Earth Hour or take some smarter actions?
