The future is now, and it is us; we must choose to act.

Wow! You have shared the YouTube video that everyone must watch, and then change their behaviour. Will it happen? I fear not. But I will show it on Learning from Dogs (LfD) to increase the viewers by a tad! I’m 78 and, frankly, do not wish to be younger. But I have a son and a daughter and a 12-year old grandson. I need to think about the best way of showing this to them; probably via LfD. Thank you for posting this.

Yes, Paul, I do think everyone should watch this. Here on WordPress, our audiences have little reach: I keep fantasising about crowdsourcing the funds to put such things as this in prime-time idiot box advert slots. At present, I have too little time – in fact I need to focus on preparing for my house move (and shouldn’t even be responding to your comment here).
But then, of course, I’m also thinking: what are the priorities? As with so many other folks, my attention is diverted away from what’s most important.
And so it goes on…

No Colin, it goes much deeper than that. For the planet to remain liveable for the majority of humans requires that same majority to greatly reduce their carbon footprint. I cannot see that happening, let alone happening in the timescale required. As a species we are in love with war, war not jaw, jaw!

Well given that in the UK they’ve gotten to the stage of censoring David Attenborough and Gary Lineker, I don’t hold out much hope.

“..rise of idiots, feeding on fear, with simplistic solutions.”
Wow. Just wow. Scary, true, and we keep wearing our blinders, fighting against facts for we like our lives just as they are and don’t wish to be inconvenienced. Let future generations deal with it … but we ARE the future generation. Thanks for this one, PeNdantry … I will reblog tomorrow.

Something to think about on this Sunday afternoon …
Good find and show, pNd. But so few are listening, and only half or less of them take this future seriously. They look around ar a world filled with 8 billion people, and they say no way can this happen.
They forget the story of the buffalo. Billions of them roamed the great plains of North America. They travelled in herds counted in the millions. The scenes of a buffalo run were described as endless , taking days to pass one spot. And suddenly they were gone! It didn’t take lifetimes. It didn’t take decades. It took two years maybe. Buffalo hunters shot and killed them for their hides. Not one of them thought to count how many were slaughtered. Until the plains were emptied. And indigenous people were starving.
Two years, and buffalo were nearly extinct.
How long can we expect to last?
