David Suzuki: Australian scientists should be up on the ramparts


This is such a brilliant speech. It’s too bad that those who need to pay the most attention have no desire to do so.

    • I disagree with a climate tax but I agree that Mother earth is getting rather pissed at our irresponsible behavior and is getting ready to let us live with the results of our stupidity.

      I’d like to say that things will sort themselves out as they should but I think things are going to get a lot better for the rich everywhere long before they get better for the average person.
