Chronicles in Ordinary Time 246: “Hope is something you have to earn, to create.”

Election Season: Animal Species are dying every day, and this does not make the news cycle. I don’t read many news articles, but I read headlines throughout the day.

“We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth,” the Swedish climate activist told the United Nations General Assembly on Monday. “How dare you?”
Speaking during the UN Climate Action Summit in New York, the 16-year-old was visibly frustrated with her audience and at times appeared to be holding back tears of anger.
 “You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words and yet, I’m one of the lucky ones,” Thunberg told the assembly, her signature long braid swept to the side. “People are suffering, people are dying.”
Thunberg’s message to the leaders was clear. Like many times in the past, she accused them of not doing enough to mitigate climate change. “For more than 30 years, the science has been crystal clear. How dare you continue to look away?”

Greta Thunberg has warned that the world faces “total natural catastrophe” unless citizens take urgent action as she made a surprise appearance at Glastonbury festival.
She said it was time for society to start “creating hope” rather than waiting for it to arrive: “Hope is not something that is given to you. It is something you have to earn, to create. It cannot be gained passively from standing by passively and waiting for someone else to do something.
“It is taking action. It is stepping outside your comfort zone. And if a bunch of school kids were able to get millions of people on the streets and start changing their lives, just imagine what we could all do together if we try.”

What will it take before the human adults take the Climate Change emergency seriously? Every country on the face of the Earth is facing historic Climate Events, upcoming food emergencies, upcoming energy emergencies; and the rising of the Ocean Level—glaciers melting. Here in the United States most of the media outlets fill the air about Mid-Term Elections. They are important, but one of these days, Washington D.C. may find itself in a more horrific Event than the Attack on the Capital. Or a Massive storm/tornado/ earthquake disaster. Some Idiot may decide to lob a nuclear weapon at the seat of American Democracy. If that were to happen, Mid-Term Elections would not be as important. Pontificating from the U.S. Capital will seem fairly pointless. It is already too late to prevent some climate dangers.

Greta Thunberg, Climate Activist

I would be the first to admit that I am taking refuge in “Sheltering in Place”. Aside from 14 years working for City Government, I have avoided being around people outside of my family for most of my life [there are family members who would rightly suggest that my avoidance included them]. People are messy. At 70, I look back at my life with a lot of wonderment; on the order of “I really did that?”.

Ever since the orange whore [he will do anything for money] invaded the airwaves, it has become ‘politically correct’ to lie about anything that others find offensive. Sound Bites, Mic Drops, Misdirection. Back When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth, there was Senator named Joseph McCarthy, who made it his goal in life to find communists in the Federal Government, in Hollywood and wherever else he could crawl. These activities ruined the lives of many, people who lost their jobs and the ability to gain employment anywhere in the US. The Red Menace that no longer exists. A form of government that imploded. What a colossal waste of time and talent. I look at headlines and get the impression that our government is being led by 4-year-olds. My 3-year-old grandson has better sense.

An enormous amount of money has been spent in trying to show that the orange whore intended to lie, cheat and steal. It is clear that he did so; the problem is to show that he intended to lie, cheat and steal, rather than simply being incompetent. Three Impeachment hearings… Government leaders accept the idea that it is worth the colossal expense to indict a man who knows he cheated the country; rather than trying to hold off climate change.

the iconic Pillars of Creation

Originally captured by the Hubble Space Telescope, the James Webb Space Telescope has created a stronger image of this series of gas clouds that form stars. Apparently, there are very few galaxies shown in the new image; what we see in the background is the content of the Milky Way Galaxy, where we live. Distances we will never travel. If humans don’t get their shit together soon, no humans will ever travel that far. C.S. Lewis, a contemporary of Tolkien, and one of the ‘Inklings’, wrote a Space Trilogy. He stated on various occasions that he hoped the human race would never travel beyond our Solar System, limiting the plague that is the Human Race to Earth.

My personal belief is that there are beacons surrounding our Solar System, warning that we are infected with greed and resulting plagues. We don’t have Visitors from other solar systems because they don’t want to be infected. They pass by to take photos—like going to Yellowstone.

I have never heard a religious person ask the Judas Iscariot question. The answer is ‘yes’. Jesus came to bring Light to the World. Creator exists in Non-Linear Time. We never surprise Creator. God created us so that we could be the presence of the Creator. We are doing a poor job of it…

Looking at the political situation around the world, I don’t think God is on our side.
We are addicted to violence and War.

I am weary as hell. The confusion I’m feeling can’t fully be described. Words fill my head and drop on the floor. Some of that comes from neurological issues.
