The Virtual Vitamin

A Daily Dose of Insight and Common Sense

Putting the Puzzle Together

When looking at the complete picture of current news stories, the climate change crisis is the piece that just doesn’t fit.  All of the other news items are acute problems.  Addressing climate change at this point with the global fervor it now has behind it is like treating a patient for baldness when he comes in because of a heart attack.  It just doesn’t make sense how our main global concern can be for a planet 1,000 years into the future, when we are currently acting like there is no tomorrow.  With nuclear expansion, terrorism, world wars, genocide, modern-day slavery, and the world economy crashing, why are we currently so panicked about the sea levels rising a few feet over a few millennia?   If we don’t take care of the immediate threats, there won’t be a planet to save centuries or even decades from now.  If we don’t take steps to save man, what good does it serve to save the planet?  What piece really fits?  The end game of those who cry global warming is simply for short-term gain — money, control, and influence.  It is not about the planet, it is about power.
