Man's real forte`- buggering up our planet
Dear Green People,
All this Greening
nonsense is wishful thinking in the extreme. Thousands of delegates have
attended the BO17 (there’s no deodorant yet invented for that) conference in Durbanwhere they waffled away for days and
came away with nothing that will have any noticeable affect on Global Warming.
Polar bears will continue to be on ever
thinning ice and so will the rest of us while the real problem will go on
African Government wasted R200-million on
this junket and if you add on what the thousands of delegates spent on flights,
their accommodation etc the total cost could have been double that or more.
Could any of those who
attended tell me how many trees you can plant for 200 – million grand?
To coincide with this massive holiday
by the sea the local papers and TV channels were full of ridiculous
advertisements telling us how everything would be rosy if only we would turn
off the lights and that sort of thing.
They also ignored the real problem.
Probably half the 7-billion people in the world don’t even have lights
to turn off. And even if they had and we all agreed to have two nights a week
in complete darkness it wouldn’t help one bit while the factories in the
industrialised nations like China and the USA
continue to belch out hot air in ever increasing volumes.
this lethal concoction you have nuclear power stations that melt down every now
and again. And ironicallySouth Africa has plans to build plenty more of these as well coal
fired ones while it’s Government was trying to convince the conference that everybody
else should go Green.
So it’s obvious that you might as well leave you
lights on 24/7 because that’s not what’s doing the damage.
Still the real problem went unrecognised.
If the rich nations don’t care about
putting a break on Global Warming unless it can
be done without affecting their pockets who in their right mind can expectthe poor to do anything about it. If you’ve
got nothing, a tree is something to be cut down for firewood or to sell. It’s
not something you plant when it won’t benefit you in your life time.
delegates spent days at this COPOUT 17, trying to agree on a
repeat of the pathetic Kyoto Protocol. That momentous non-event committed 37 developed
countries to reduce their stinking footprints to 5% below their 1990 levels
(whatever they were) by 2012. Five percent; that’s just a couple of fags for every person on
Even if these
squabbling countries agree to continue this charade it will take them 220 years to get to a 50% reduction and
by then we will all be underwater or gassed by an atmosphere that you’ll have a
job cutting with a knife.
As man can’t even run many families
successfully let alone entire countries what chance is there that he can put
the world right when he has buggered it up himself.
That’s why nature
is stepping in as it has done since time began. And when it gets going
democracy goes out of the window and it doesn’t waist time in endless,
Over population that’s our real
problem, which nobody wants to mention. No wonder you can’t see the trees for
Man might have come up with fantastic
inventions but his real forte` is letting his you-know-what and his uncontrolled
greed ruin our planet.
But don’t worry nature will sort this
out in its own ruthless way without the help of Facebook or Twitter.
It will take out those who man doesn’t
kill with earthquakes, tsunamis, famines, floods, droughts, hurricanes,
diseases and a few other things that it will no doubt come up with along the

start buggering it up again.
More ominously nature might notgive him a
Who was it that wiped out the dinosaurs?
Jon, who is desperately trying to find a
desert island that won’t be under water.
P.S. While the delegates were procrastinating in Durban nature was getting on withthe job very efficiently outside the conference centre where its wild
weather brought floods that killed eight people.
Buy my book ‘Where have all the children
gone?’ on Amazon.com It’s a thriller with an underlying love story
that defied generations of prejudice.
