I just finished listening to the important message of Bill McKibbon regarding global climate change and a thought came to me at the very end of the program. Bill mentioned in closing that this struggle to reverse climate change was exciting because the whole world is involved. My thought was this. How can we as a global community continue fighting wars (eg, Afghanistan) when our planet DEMANDS that we cease fighting and work together to address the destruction of the earth's destruction? It seems to me that any global effort to address climate change, world poverty, natural disasters, etc. will fail as long as we continue to obsess on war. Perhaps we should work to convince terrorists and the Pentagon alike to focus energy on saving the planet instead of killing each other.
