As if you haven’t heard the news yet, but let me chime in a tell you if you haven’t, the United States of America has pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement. A side note on this one, if you hadn’t heard this news yet, then you’re officially my hero. You’re so involved in Instagram or SnapChat that you can’t see that another actual world exists beyond you, yourself, and the selfies of yourself, and those selfies of you taking selfies, which are SOOOOO META.
So what does this all mean anyway, why is it such a big deal? Let’s use an analogy that may not go over very well aka not politically correct.
On the one hand, you have the United States, and for argument’s sake, based on the United States role regarding pollution in the world today, it would be the primary abuser if this was a relationship. If this were a court of law, the United States would be in jail right now. And who did the good old U.S.A. abuse? Well, Mother Earth of course and she’s been taking a beating from the U.S.A. for a very long time now. She has taken it in the ground and in the air. We also assume verbally as well, but it’s not the most popular form of abuse these days. You never actually hear anyone say ‘Fuck you Earth, you loser. You’ll never amount to anything.’
It’s amazing that Mother Earth still hangs around us humans after all this, as every one of us from Industrialized nations abuses her in every way. It’s not like Mother Earth isn’t fighting back with all her natural disasters and plagues and things like that, and that’s when us humans had to strike a deal so she wouldn’t lash out as much. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned they say.
In 2015, a deal was struck between Mother Earth and almost every country on earth not to abuse this poor woman like they had been doing in an attempt for an apology and for everyone to just get along. Less climate change is the best solution for all, and in this case, we can all live in harmony if we start changing our ways and treat Mother Earth with the respect she deserves. The Paris Agreement wasn’t life changing, but it was a step in the right direction.
Now coming full circle on what was previously mentioned, unless you were hiding behind a rock, or underneath one. The biggest and baddest polluter/abuser on the planet, the United States of America has decided to pull out of the Paris Agreement. Thus saying to Mother Earth, ‘Fuck You, I can do what I want and when I want, and by the way, all those things you accused me of, it’s all fake news, never happened. You make up lies and call them science, well my science says that your science is all made up and my science doesn’t even have a degree in science, what do you think about that? Oh, I don’t care for your answer, I don’t give a fuck. Not one fuck. I’m going to go golfing now to show you how much I don’t give a fuck; then I’m going to go to a Monster Truck rally and then I’m going to drill for oil in Yosemite National Park. Yeah, fuck you, right in every hole on this god damned loser planet, you dumb loser.’
So there you have it. The United States of America is just one giant asshole. Mother Earth will continue to be abused until she cannot take any more. And sadly…….The Paris Agreement is The Unbalanced Being of the Day.
