stolen off of indymedia

cos i very very liked it.

"As the climate fails more people will likely die of thirst and of hunger than of the direct effects of the seemingly constant hurricanes, floods, ice-storms et al. More people are dying that way now and the ratio will probably be constant even as the numbers geometrically increase. Probably even more people will kill each other in resource wars. The really hilarious thing about climate change wiping out humanity is the simple fact we consider ourselves the most intelligent species - and we triggered the event. And I love how politicians say 'we can't switch to renewables in time. If we chose to as a species we could switch to renewables tommorow. All those factories turning out Ipods and cars and bombs and computers spacecraft and other such luxurious nonsensical shit could turn out generators instead. Think about it - we are trading the whole beautiful earth for crap that we don't even like. I hope your kids all like their Christmas presents this year because they will be paying for them for the rest of their lives.

Humanity i love you because
when you're hard up you pawn your
intelligence to buy a drink and when
you're flush pride keeps
you from the pawn shops and
because you are continually committing
nuisances but more
especially in your own house

We've got photographs of men on the moon,
We've got water that is good for us,
We've got coffee that's instantaneous,
We've got buildings that are very tall,
We've got cigarettes that are low in tar,
We've got policemen can tell us who we are,
We can reproduce a work of art,
We've got missiles can tear the world apart,
Good, good, good, good, good, good technology. "
