Exclamation We cant keep going on like this

i have two articles here,
http://multinationalmonitor .or g/mm2003/03march/march03corp2.html -is about U.S. corporations directly involved in human rights violations oppression murder rape torture forced labor and crimes against the enviroment.

and this one http://news.bbc.co.uk

- which is about '"unacceptable levels" of man-made environmental toxins in the Inuit population of Greenland.' the natural food they have always eaten is now poison.

we cant keep going on like this. we cant keep pumping oil and clear cutting forests and poisoning the earth and the air and water and murdering and torturing and enslaving and imprisoning people so that some fat corporation owners can get richer and richer.

im asking every yahookan to help stop this.
im asking every yahookan to boycott brand america.
im asking every yahookan to recycle, reduce, reuse.
im asking every yahookan to think globaly and act locally.
im asking every yahookan to spread love, not hate.
im asking every yahookan to speak up about this to your family and friends and people at your school and at your work, and on the internet.

and im also asking every yahookan what else can we do to stop this evil?

well i want you boys to kno that i love you, but im very disapointed in the both of you.
bad shit is happening right now, and bad shit has been happening for a long time. whole nations of people have been murdered just so someone could make a profit, and the murders are still going on.
whole species have been murdered just so someone could make a profit, and the murders are still going on.
people are in prison right now, people are being poisoned right now, people are being enslaved and raped and tortured and murdered right now.
so i wont shut the fuck up.
you can laugh, but you wont be laughing for long.

Nice to see at least there are some people who are willing to be chastized for their positions. I worry not about other peoples opinions when it comes to issues I feel passionate about. ( I can be proven wrong though ) However fellas, the issues that are brought up here are seriously valid and warrent consideration. For the comment to not worry because you will be dead before anything bad happens, you obviously don't see the larger picture. Those who care do something because first, they want an end to the suffering, and second, they work hard to ensure a better future for our childeren to inherit. do you just want to hand over these issues to the future generations for them to solve? something must be done.

most of us will still be alive when the bad stuff happens.

a lot of us won't be alive afterward.

those who are left are gonna be the people who have to begin rebuilding a destroyed world

and the earth did whisper
up through the trees
I'll take good care of you
if you take good care of me

and the boy did wonder
3 times a day
does anyone really hear me
when I get on my knees and pray

will you walk with me upon the water
will you sit with me on a cool stone
and you know I'll never leave you baby
I'll just fade away
cause we're a long long way from our home
-reagan babies, wind did whisper

You people have an extremely pessimistic view about the whole issue.

Humans are very stupid as a whole, but we're not stupid enough to to put ourselves in a position that we can't get out of. As soon as the increase in CO2 and the clearcutting of forests and burning of fossil fuels begins to catch up with us to the point where we actually notice it, things will be done. Once it starts affecting the "fat corporate assholes" directly, they will be forced to do something about it. If the fire's burning you, you're not going to put more wood on it, right? We obviously have the technology, something will be done about it once it becomes more of a pressing issue. No one wants to go out of their way to do something they dont have to, so we'll just wait until they do. If you think that the human race is fucked, you're underestimating the advantage that we have over other animals in that we can solve problems. Quit sending the wrong message.

^^^ sorry dude but um humans are already trying to fuck around with the weather and carbon levels...small particles of aluminum and barium are sprayed into the upper leves of the atmosphere...this infect limits the ammount of sunlight getting in...youd think this would reduce global warming...excfept it doesnt...by reducing the ammount of light coming in you automatically reduce the ammount of Co2 that plants can take in....if you loook at nasa's space immagry that measures polution you would see that HUMANS are moving large ammounts of carbon in the atmosphere to places like the amazon...gand guess what the amazon is deing off because there is 3 times the ammount of carbon in the atmosphere around it then the plant life can process...HAARP. READ UP ON ALL OF ITS USES AND AFFECTS ON THE ATMOSPHERE.

Actually no. There's a point where global warming will begin to fuel itself and we'll be fucked no matter what we do. As the tundra melts, frozen organic material will begin to rot, releasing methane. Methane is a way fucking worse greenhouse gas then CO2, so the methane released will be enough to fuel the continuing melting of the permafrost, which will supply the methane. And fuck the average global temp increase, it's actually going down in some places and one of the most affected by increase is the arctic, so "global increase of 5 degrees over the next 10 years" could mean 15 degrees for some areas, which as laid out above can be very fucking bad.

I guess I wasn't in on that^, but I'll reiterate. You're one of the few people who has actually noticed apparently. Once again, when it begins to affect us to the point that we can't go about our daily lives without being interrupted by it, something will be done. The more of an issue it becomes, the more intellectuals around the world will be working to solve the problem. As it is, it hasn't had an effect that interrupts our daily lives, so no one cares about it. Luckily, we have our whole lives to figure out who's really right. I refuse to believe that the only intelligent life we know of (us) is going to go extinct. We are problem solvers. If generic rain goes up to 11 on the pH scale, are we going to continue driving our cars around? Hell no. Don't assume that we're so stupid as to just keep pushing our current lives if we're harming ourselves. When the fat corporate assholes realize that the rain is turning their roof into swiss cheese, something will be done.

I beleive you're missing Woods' point. By the time people realize something needs to be done, it will be too late.

^^exactly

but this isnt just about global warming. even if global warming were a myth, if it were nothing more than a bad dream, id still say we cant keep going on like this.
who read those articles presented in the first post?

Quote:
Man-made persistent organic pollutants (POPs) like PCBs have been linked to serious health damage in animals and humans.
Together with other pollutants like mercury, lead and cadmium, they are carried north by sea currents and weather patterns
The report from the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (Amap) concludes Greenlanders should consider changing their eating habits, to avoid possible health effects like reduced fertility, genetic damage and deformities in children.

"To discover that the food which for generations has nourished them and kept them whole physically and spiritually is now poisoning them is profoundly disturbing and threatens Indigenous Peoples' cultural survival," the statement says.

heres an update on the ATCA case against Unocal for the rape, torture, murder and enslavement of villagers by the company's hired security forces along the site of an oil pipeline built with Unocal's help in southern Burma in the 1990s. http://www.athensnews.com/issue/arti...story_id=18981
Quote:
Hundreds of American businesses are arguing that the case will harm U.S. business interests. USA*Engage, a coalition of over 600 corporations, as well as lawyers for President Bush, have filed briefs on behalf of Unocal, arguing that if the matter is not dismissed, its continuation could deter future economic engagement with foreign countries, and that similar cases could impede the war on terror by condemning governments that are otherwise on good terms with the United States.

"The Bush administration has been very, very hostile toward this and other similar cases," says plaintiffs' lawyer Judith Chomsky.
