do we need a Global government?
I was very interested in the serious situation that we have got our home planet into and I am going to have trouble explaining this to my grandchildren.
Unless I totally misunderstood all the assembled climate experts, we do not have a long time before we are at the no way to survive. Based on the information that they all agreed on, as soon as the 2 polar ice caps have all melted and the oceans have risen 6 or more feet, we are at the point of no return. They just don't know when that will happen. What they are sure of is that the melting has been happening much faster than previously expected.
The California fires should be a scary example of the quick deterioration of our climate. Each year, they grow in size exponentially and are beyond the firefighter's ability to control, because of the lack of water. We have seen how far the clouds have affected our climates. My son in BC says that he and his kids were house bound for several days due to poor air quality caused by the west coast fires. My Cousin in Germany says that they had several days without sunshine due to the clouds from California just like we did in Toronto, the clouds were just too high to affect the air quality on the ground.
When Trump was asked about his opinion, he responded as expected, which is "just wait and see it will rain next year".
This situation has been brewing for several hundred years and I don't think it is reasonable to expect someone like Trump to take the blame and fix it. I also don't think that we can fix this with just by fixing the US, although the experts suggested that coal fired electric plants should be closed first. We have the technology and know-how. Just do it by taxing the coal fired electricity if that gets results.
This Corona pandemic is a real wake-up call for all of us earthlings, that we are totally using up our planet and running toward extinction unless we change our ways. All countries will be affected. The UN and WHO response was a total disaster in my view. We need a Global police force that has ultimate power in all countries. No veto power like now from Russia, China, North Korea or any other country. You are either in and working toward a solution or you are out and the Global countries will not trade with you.
I am looking for ideas and please let me know if I am wrong, and going down the wrong path?
