How The Bribes Are Bribing Us To Death On Climate Change.
The way that some people are getting rich is hurting the environment and making it harder for us to live healthy lives. Politicians who care more about money than the planet are doing what Big Oil wants them to do. They've been lying to us for years, saying that climate change isn't real. But the truth is, they knew it was real all along. They just wanted to make more money. By bribing politicians and the media, they were able to keep us from taking action to stop climate change for decades. And now we're paying the price. Climate change is causing a lot of problems and even killing people. We're all paying a lot of money to support the fossil fuel industry, whether we know it or not. Each American — man, woman, and child — paid around $2000 last year to subsidize the fossil fuel industry, according to an analysis this year by the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Why are Americans Subsidizing Our Own Extinction? This industry is very profitable, but it's hurting the planet and all the living things on it. We need to be aware of what's going on and demand that our leaders make changes to protect the environment.
The biggest fossil fuel companies in the world are digging and mining for oil and gas. If they keep going, the planet will get a lot hotter, maybe even so hot that most living things will die out. Some people say that we need to keep the planet from getting more than 2.7 degrees Celsius hotter. But these companies are planning to push it past that limit.
Fossil fuel companies say that they want to stop producing so much pollution. But really, they're only talking about the pollution from their own operations. They don't care about the pollution that comes from the fossil fuels they sell to other people. The United States could do a lot to help stop pollution, but our leaders won't do it. They take money from the fossil fuel industry instead of doing what's best for everyone.
Scientists are warning us that we need to act fast. If we don't, the world will become a very hard place to live in. Our kids and future generations will suffer because of the choices our leaders are making. It's not fair and it's not right. We need to demand that our leaders do better for us and for the planet.
