Wake up to the deception

LETTER

I watch with astonishment, horror and disbelief at all that is happening in our world. Floods, heat waves, earthquakes, birds dropping out of the sky — all natural catastrophes, then the human tragedy that is occurring all around. People being displaced by illegal governments or military, hunger, misery, violence, sex trafficking, and so it goes on and on. What a Godless lot we have become.

But for today. What an irony, I watched a documentary about the United Nations and the ocean floor and measuring the continental shelves. Denmark, Russia, Canada and others bordering the Arctic Ocean are all wanting an extension of the shelves to gain more for themselves.Their goal is deep-sea drilling for oil, and a new treasure trove to be had.

Meanwhile political leaders move to create environment crises — creating anxiety in our young people and creating nuisance and worry in the general populace. It is our New Religion and we must all believe. While in the background, we have the UN and all those involved in further exploitation of the world. What hypocrites. How dumb can the people be? Like lemmings to the cliff edge. Time to wake up to all the deception.

Like Anne I too feel bad about the horrors of world floods heatwaves birds dropping from the sky. I also deplore the unimaginable miseries inflicted upon the victims by unjust regimes and military might.
Indeed the irony of the bonanza of arctic fossil fuel now available through humanity-driven global warming awaiting release so we cook ourselves faster.
Apart from the earth-quakes these are human- caused events not natural catastrophies as Anne said
Nor are political leaders move to create environment crises ? creating anxiety in our young people ..nuisance and worry in the general populace.
The world is in trouble. Our main issue is we are engulfed in a climate emergency
In a nut shell humanity caused this crisis and humanity has to deal with it.

I'd say both these folk dwell in the nut shell Mr Hughes alludes to in his final paragraph.
