A new and alarming paper in the prestigious journal Science [behind a paywall] reports today that the world's oceans may be acidifying faster now than at any time during the four major extinctions of the last 300 million years, when natural pulses of carbon sent global temperatures soaring as much as 6 degrees C (10.8 degrees F).I keep wondering how catastrophic climate extremes have to become before the political operatives of the One Percent's capitalist system acknowledge that there is a problem which the system cannot deal with. Likewise I wonder how long before the 99 Percent allow the One Percent to go on their merry way destroying our habitat. Should we of the 99 percent allow the growth addicts of the One Percent take us all down because they cannot get enough of their fossil fuel fix?
It appears that many political liberals don't care enough about social injustice to question the system, but surely they care enough about the human race to question the system! So far they seem to be more worried about "violent protesters" breaking a few windows. (See this.)
