******Maybe humans are just one of those species to add to the list. ******
Maybe so, but I would rather go out swinging and kicking. It's time to go up on mountain tops and ask for the favor of the gods AND to then come down off that mountain top and get off our duffs and get to work.
Global warming (and cooling) is a part of the cycles of this planet. The Amerindians that existed in North America about 40,000 years ago did nothing to cause the glaciers to recede forming the Great Lakes. I think it is safe to assume that they did not poison the Earth. Yet the Earth warmed DRAMATICALLY.
Today, the global warming (as presented) is a scare-tactic to cause us to "change" from one form of white supremacy oppression to another...one with a smile...from whiteness to greeness...with "our children's future at stake" of course.
For instance, they are calling for electric cars. Well, you do know that electricity has been argued to be the cause of many of our current health problems. The Amish/Mennonites (I forget which) used to avoid modern technology, especially electricity, AND they used to live longer healthier lives. Now they compete against us for urban construction jobs...use cell phones...smoke...curse...drive...drink...you know, all of the modern western societal amenities.
"Green" is a diversion/denial band-aid to avoid the acknowledgment and affirmation of Blackness and the Redness of blood in the wake of their destruction.
