The Biggest Lie Ever Told!

climate-change-frame-1000pxThere is nothing as deceitful as Hillary Clinton claiming that she will impact climate change and initiate programs that will slow or stop global warming. It is nothing but campaign rhetoric which she knows to be false. Even if she were not in support of fracking, even if she did not owe her soul to Big Oil and Gas, she would not be able to do ANYTHING to change the course humanity is following.

The most delusional lie ever told to the American people, or to people anywhere, is that politicians can impact climate change.

Campaigning on promises of saving the planet and making the world better for our grandchildren is nothing but a hoax.

We are in the Holocene Extinction, the sixth mass extinction in the planet’s history, It has been primarily caused by the industrial revolution (read: capitalism).

Scrambling to change to green energy, decreasing our carbon footprints, reducing greenhouse gas emissions etc, are like trying to turn the tide with teacups. It is pissing into the wind. It won’t make a difference at all,

And Hillary knows it.

Trump, on the other hand, doesn’t care.

But the effect of either of them in office will not change the climate or slow the inevitable destruction that is coming.

Neither Trump nor Hillary will do anything about climate change.

Hillary cannot. Donald will not.

Of the two approaches, Hillary’s is the more contemptible, because she knows it is a lie, and she keeps telling it anyway.

The reality is that unless we violently, and quickly, overthrow capitalism, climate change is unstoppable.

No politician would ever admit as much. In the US and most of the world, capitalism rules society and owns government.

The preservation of power and markets is infinitely more important to the powers that be than are any considerations of the future of the environment.

    • Revolution would be much more likely under Trump, although still a remote possibility. What will be accomplished by a Trump presidency will be a re-energized left. Progressives will sweep the 2018 midterms, nominate and elect a president in 2020, and control reapportionment after the 2020 Census. A vital left wing will help grow the more radical socialists. There is even the remote possibility of remaking the Democrats into a democratic socialist party.

      • I agree with you. This country is far from ready for a revolution. Look around, APATHY reigns. The catastrophes we are encountering now, e.g. floods, droughts, refugee migrations, and resource wars are just a small glimpse of our future. Human beings are great at only noticing immediate and personal threats. The die has been cast; the time for making any real difference in avoiding the 6th extinction has passed, and a majority of the population is STILL IN DENIAL. I wont vote for the donald, because unlike you, i had/ have to deal with the everyday reality of being treated as a lesser creature simply because i was born female. This isnt meant as a personal attack, you cant help the fact thst you were born a male either.

      • As I live in California, I will be voting for Jill Stein. I urge voters in swing states to vote Trump and for Jill everywhere else. California is a deep blue state that Hillary will carry. I will be voting against any Clinton Democrats down ballot, and for as many Greens as are listed.

  1. I agree with you 100%. But unfortunately many don’t know, don’t care or don’t have the mental capacity to understand this point. She will not even bother to try to change anything if there is no promise of millions of votes for her. Hillary is all about Hillary, and achieving her personal goals, and her personal goals do not include the environment or animal welfare

  2. It really scares me to think that woman could be our new t President!! The way she tells the masses so many LIES, so many ACTUALLY BELIEVE!! Do people e enough k OW to th I k for themselves?? TRUMP NEEDS SOME SERIOUS GROOMING AS FAR AS SHOWING COMPASSION, AND KNOWING “”WHEN NOT. TO RESPOND TO A COMMENT””!!!! But with proper guidance in the world of politics (being politically correct) I believe he would ALWAYS PUT US FIRST, VET ALL aliens properly, bring business back to us, etc,etc,etc!!!!!

  3. Yes, capitalism with its relentless emphasis on consumerism and its equally relentless extraction of resources is a driver of climate change. This includes evils such as animal agriculture that not only brings misery to the animals involved but also degrades the environment with air pollution from methane and water pollution from runoff.

    However capitalism has a partner that politicians do not want to talk about. That partner is overpopulation. According to Democratic Underground, “Any politician who even dares to bring this subject up ends their career. So almost no one will discuss it.” http://www.democraticundergroup.comm January 2015.
    Human population is projected to reach 9.6 billion by 2050 and will continue to cause Anthropocene Extinction, something else the politicians are not talking about.

    In 1968 Paul Ehrlich published his book “The Population Bomb,” warning about the dangers of the burgeoning numbers of human beings on this earth. The author appeared on multiple TV shows discussing the problem, and his book was received with great interest. However, soon the whole topic of the human birth rate was becoming politicized. Anti-abortion/anti-contraception religions made the topic politically incorrect to discuss.

    As a result of the silence and the still growing numbers, Garrett Hardin noted the following in his 1977 book, “The Limits of Altruism”: “… in the modern press, nobody ever dies of overpopulation: It is unthinkable. So we say people die of starvation, drowning, disease, civil disorder, and countless other acceptable “causes.” Taboo determines language, and language controls perception.” (p. 94)

    The discussion has become more dire, causing ecologist like Hardin to suggest that if countries allow their population to grow beyond the carrying capacity of their land, other countries whose own resources are stretched, may no longer be able or obligated to come to the rescue. Ethical philosopher Herschel Elliott also notes that the usual rules of humanitarian morality may be irrelevant in the face of mass overpopulation and its problems.

    So far, though, most of the human race has escaped the worse consequences of its arrogant and irresponsible overbreeding. The rest of the creatures on this earth have had to bear the burden. We hunt them into extinction for food and take their habitat until they starve or are driven into human communities, where they are killed as pests and competitors for resources. Even the megafauna of Africa are fighting for their lives and their species, as the long-gone mammoths and mastodons did. The article above suggests that we are annihilating 30,000 species a year.

    I wonder if our species will ever have the humility and wisdom to regret what we have done are and are doing. Even when we are warned about the hazards of climate change to all life, many deny it. Even when we know of the tragic consequences of our overbreeding and have the ability to control it, we allow Religion to make the rules. To many in that community, a whole species is less important than one fertilized egg.

    So our numbers grow. But species who have evolved with us over millions of years and who have earned the right to live on this earth with us are being driven to extinction. Many of them will be gone before we knew who they were or that they were here? Thus we will even deny them their place in the record of life on this planet.

    They are just more victims of capitalism, greed, denial, and the futility of the political process.

    • thank you Ahimsa!!! no matter what kind of economic or political system , or environmental gadget we humans devise, it will always be destructive and eventually self- consuming until and unless we control our HUMAN population. our quick fixes, and shortsightedness are still being proposed by people who should know better. And the nonhuman animal will continue to be under our boot until we respect them as individuals with interests of their own instead of things to be used by us.
