I have another climate change/politics/green rant building, but I do not have time to write it, so I went and looked up my Temper Tantrum Rant of a few years ago and discovered it…
…fails to apply to many of the things I want to say, but also manages to, so just go read that and assume I’m still as livid, or possibly more so, than I was that day. The follow-up political manifesto also still applies.
The infuriating thing, the really infuriating thing, is that I have no doubt at all that we as a people/nation/world are completely capable of fixing our problems only we had the will to do so. And it is typically governments which have the will, and ours are failing us. Failing us everywhere, failing our current generations, failing the future generations inutterably, failing at everything we might expect of them, and we the people, the ones who have the power to change the governments, are failing at that. I believe in the power of the people, but fucking *hell* I wish it didn’t take actually being on fire to get them to move.
I swear to God I’m going to Kickstart that climate change trilogy just as soon as I have a goddamned minute to breathe.
