3. AGREED, THERE ARE NO HUMAN RIGHTS IF WE'RE ALL DEAD, BUT

Mary Robinson keeps asking why we aren't approaching this true crisis more urgently...Gee, Mary, I'd have to say that there are a lot of Fat Cats in Big Coal & Big Oil & Big Nat. Gas that are not in the least sincere about somehow not burning their stocks of fuels that greatly increase greenhouse gases and therefore HEAT OUR PLANET. McKibben and 350.org say we have to divest all stock holdings from all individuals, organizations and groups, like was done with aparteid in South Africa. Yes, that helped, but it takes years and years...and the Urgent Need is NOW.
