In my previous post I alluded - yet again - for the need for love in this world. A world that is being defoliated and its occupants (both humans and creatures of all kinds) being mercilessly harassed and pursued into horrors that are being suppressed from front-page news in order that the world's rich may carry on their games of taking out what they want and giving back very little.
Amongst those horrors is the news that Botswana has lifted an embargo against wild animal hunting, which means that rapidly decreasing species like elephants and lions are to be relentlessly chased for sport. The question must be "why has Botswana done this?", and the only answer must be because the country has been promised investment if they were to do that.
In May, the BBC indicated that sea level rise could be greater than expected, while in March, it was revealed that BP had Trump's ear and had successfully lobbied the Trump administration to roll back key climate regulations that underpinned the US contribution to the Paris climate agreement. This, despite claiming to support the deal. They say one thing and do another.
Decades ago, while I had already taken to following a belief in green issues, I was still dubious about organisations like Greenpeace, but I now see that unless they had not acted the world would be in a far worse slumber over evil goings-on than it is. Other organisations (like 38 Degrees) now try to reach out to us on similar themes.
