Don’t give a dam or f…ck whether you call it global warming,climate change, environment protection or koala protection. What the world needs is a new batch of leaders who have the globe’s interests and all species survival at heart – not thinking of the next Hawaiian luau. Not this f….cking self serving bunch globally in power! Stop voting for greed driven not fit for purpose financial system arsholes and celebrities! Start listening to real scientists and finance properly real coordinated research, start trying to eliminate the ignorance, assumption (the mother of all f…ck-ups) and innuendo! Give them the global war budget after some spend on the repair of the destruction rained on most of the people and the planet by the what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine politicians.. Reduce the wealth of the 1%. 1 billion each is still enough to shop at Harrods. Species survival is the real war. Survival will take some growing up!
