The Psyche Of Global Warming ( a worksheet )

Posted: June 5, 2011 in The Fall
( this is a draft and will remain unfinished although publicly available, until I am called )
# … It is easy to accept that global warming is true … it validates the conscious part of our story that we are nice, caring people who want to live on a peaceful planet … and it provides us with an obvious villain!

# … And a way to focus on the small, while fooling ourselves that we are focusing on the big!

# … The subtle fascism of left wing politics is hidden in green, comfy terms. My whole take on this debate is summed up thus:
The Right have a vested interest in business as usual, and therefore are blind to large scale concerns and the Left have a vested interest in knowing what is best for us and therefore are blind to real facts.

# … The Left are, if you like, less wrong here in wanting to do the right thing for the wrong reason yet it is still plain dumb to band-aid the environment without addressing the consumptive society that will rip this band-aid off at the first sign of pain!
