Hundreds of distinguished scientists drown us in detailed data describing the devastation that will dampen our spirits due to our voracious determination to drill for oil continuously and use all the dark coal completely 'till it disappears forever.
Those with vested interests delve deviously to detect a difference of opinion, then jeer delightedly and defame the dedicated scientists calling them dreary, deranged and deluded. They are determined to make a dramatic beat up and decide to discredit the danger.
Oh dear; ruthless dealers, dumping on the deeply knowledgeable.
Dangerously deluded politicians also choose to ignore our Earth’s degeneration.
We need all the help we can get.
