The tragedy in Paris is another opportunity for reflection on how the world has arrived where we are today. ISIS and many other terrorist groups would not have their present power and military equipment if the west had not pumped billions into the middle east in a self-destructive obsession with oil as its primary fuel over the past century.
Emergency climate talks would not be needed in Paris or anywhere else today, if the west had embraced and developed the many clean, sustainable, renewable energy resources available on planet earth.
Thankfully many people are finally seeing the light. Better late than never. Smart initiatives are underway all over the world and conscientious consumers are looking for ways to change their consumption behaviors. We humans can be so brilliant when we choose to be… Yes we can change. Spread the word.
