People on this site keep asking the question, how can the powers that be continue polluting and raping the planet? Don’t they have children? Are they so blind and short sighted that they trade the future of life on this planet for temporary riches that will be of no value when we are all dead? I believe the answer is grimmer then we imagine. I believe that the fundamental religious right wing fanatics talk of “the rapture” and the coming apocalypse is a metaphor for what we are actually seeing today in the worsening environment.

I think the wealthiest and most powerful individuals in the world have seen the studies and forecasts and know where the path we are on leads. I think they have concluded that there is no turning back, that the only course open is to accumulate as much wealth and power as they can while continuing to push the planet over the brink. They are hastening the demise of the planet because they believe there is no way to fix this problem. Their plan is probably to build remote enclaves protected by private armies where they can go and watch the planet burn.
