OOPS to FOSSIL FUELS ~ RACHEL CARSON & ON THE ROAD FROM THE PARIS CLIMATE ACCORD
We stand now where two roads diverge.
The road we have long been travelling is deceptively easy…
A smooth superhighway on which we progress with great speed,
but at its end lies disaster.
The other fork in the road – the one less traveled by –
offers our last, our only chance to reach a destination that assures the
preservation of the earth.
Quote from Rachel Carson, author of Silent Spring
The Paris Climate Accord makes the eco-logical imperative described by Rachel Carson crystal clear. The unfettered extraction, use and dealing in fossil fuels give every indication that a fossil fuel economy is in our best interest. It may have been so in years past but it isn’t anymore. We need rapid divestment from fossil fuels towards a whole hearted embrace of the new de-carbonized economy based on renewable energy. Cheers to the vision . . .
People get ready, there’s a train a comin…
