So, I guess mankind won’t have to worry about climate change after all: the nukes will destroy modern civilization before extreme weather events do.
In case you missed it: While Russia’s Vladimir Putin has been acting out on the world stage in his bid to exterminate Ukrainians, the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued its starkest warning yet this week. Climate change is happening much quicker than previously thought, and its effects will be devastating for humans over the next 20 years.
I wish we had another 20 years, but somehow a madman has been allowed to bully the human race into nuclear oblivion. It boggles the mind how this has been allowed to happen. But quite frankly, Vladimir Putin is only one of many people preaching hate and destruction these days in every corner of the world.
If there really were a God, you gotta think It is considering another global flood. But then again, that might not be effective enough. Rich people could ride out a flood on their yachts and ships. No, a nuclear war would be more effective at this point.
Not that Putin is an instrument of God, if there were a God. If we go down that rabbit hole, he is undoubtedly the devil.
And then there is COVID-19. All kinds of right-wing haters have jumped onto the truckers’ anti-vaccine protests to put forward their agendas — which all, curiously, want to overthrow democratic governments. They’d prefer Putin? Probably. I felt from the start that Russia was behind the rise of the extreme right around the world, in lockstep with former U.S. president Donald Trump.
No doubt, Putin sees himself as some sort of world ruler. But as we are seeing in Ukraine, people would rather die than live under such a pig. Ditto for Canada, the U.S. and free democratic countries all over the world.
So, let your nukes fly, Putin. And we’ll let ours fly.
The planet will eventually recover without the human race, and then it will be as if we never existed at all.
P.S. Coming soon: Why Donald Trump and so many other men despise Justin Trudeau. Hint: They’re jealous of him.
