23. The big energy movement is suicidal, but Russians, Trumpy, the Kochs, et al don't care.

These international deals, pending or active, are dealing with fossil fuels, a long-obsolete method of energy production that will make the planet uninhabitable within a century. And it's done for greed-- a greed that will mean nothing when the planet dies. No one will escape a dying planet. And so far, no one seems to be escaping the road to oblivion.

Our scientists have known for over 50 years that fossil fuel consumption is destroying the livability of our planet. Buckminster Fuller and others had written extensively about this problem as it was first being discovered. Fuller presented the dilemma facing our species and our ecosphere: switch to unlimited, renewable energy sources or face global catastrophe. Fuller always emphasized that staying with the fatal system of fossil fuel production is a species-wide choice. The ONLY reasons for continuing with fossil fuels are greed, power, and money. And it now appears that those characteristics will prove to be fatal for our species.
