The discussion of the need to prevent climate change continues apace. Honestly, I am not fed up about the issue but I’m fed up reading what the deniers have to say about it through the social media. So, I visited some blogs containing other topics to somehow get off from the usual blogs that I follow.
After browsing a couple of blogs, I came to stumble upon a quote that’s quite striking. It says, “You cannot f*ck the future, sir — the future f*cks you.” It came from a theology blog but then upon reading the quote, the issue on climate change began crawling inside my mind. Though I’m not sure of what the quote’s context is, I came to concoct my own understanding of it. Hell yes, nobody can mess up with our future here in this planet but I guess the future itself will eventually give its final say whether we’re going to have a f*cked up one or not. In my humble opinion, what we need to do now is to welcome the choice of a solution that might actually motivate some action for once, even on alien’s method, rather than standing vainly in its stead.
That being said, I guess the recent direct communication we did at the ADB climate meeting got quite a good number of press and it’s a good indication that clothing in all that’s strange will always be a very effective and rational way to deliver a message that is a matter of urgency.
Being an “alien” for a day was fun while delivering the message that human survival depends on real solutions to halt climate change, and at the same time reminded me that there are more reasons to act now than ever before.
