Part1 of this show: The climate victims want someone to blame.
Part 2: a subtle reference to overpopulation.

I think the politics of blame is counterproductive, especially in this case. It makes it even less likely that someone will admit to being the perpetrator of this global warming crime. The more people call for climate justice, the less likely that anything will be done about global warming, and the less likely that they will get any sort of justice, save what justice the earth will shed upon them.

I see this all in the context of a giant victim triangle. I ask, when will someone take responsibility for there being 7 billion people on earth, a huge part of the problem that no one is talking about?

So there is blame a-plenty to go around the entire earth I think.

I suggest everyone on earth needs to take some responsibility for climate change, and no one on earth needs to point the finger at anyone else for the problem. Rather each of us needs to get started to clean up our own act.

I am child-free by choice. I love children, but saw all of this environmental destruction coming many years ago and chose not to add a child who I would dearly love into such a decaying world, for their sake.
