Trump vs Planet Earth
On 2017-06-01 Trump announced the withdrawal of the USA from the Paris Climate Change Accord. The USA is the only major country that does not belong to it. According to Environment Canada, climate change is second only to nuclear war as a planetary peril. Mad Trump has declared ecological war on the entire planet including his own country. Oddly, Trump did not deny climate change was real and dangerous, only that it was economically advantageous for the USA to renege and leave the heavy lifting to everyone else. Morally, this is analogous to refusing to pay your share of a group meal at a restaurant.
How should the rest of us respond?
- Stop all trade with the USA, both imports and exports, as far as humanly possible.
- Kick the USA out of NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation).
- Terminate all treaties including military arrangements with the USA.
- Kick out the American ambassadors.
- Pressure other countries that do not join the boycott with boycotts.
I don’t think Trump has any idea what a hostile act that is to the rest of the planet. There are many countries that will disappear altogether under the waves. China, India and Pakistan will lose most of their arable and habitable lands. I see no reason they would take that lying down. I think the USA should expect terrorism coming from all quarters. I think the terrorist game, when played by large national states, will escalate to dirty bombs and nukes. Trump will damn well deserve what happens to the USA. Trump will not be able to track the culprits because every nation on earth will want the USA annihilated.
Floridians are already on the verge of uncontrollable flooding. They were idiots to vote for Trump. Their real estate will soon be worthless. They fully deserved that fate.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)

|Cetacean Intelligence||Captain Paul Watson, similar to what I did, argues that cetatceans are considerably more intelligent that humans. 2017-09-12|
|Seal Hunt||The Canadian commercial seal hunt is a barbaric bloodlust ritual where baby seals are beaten to death with spiked clubs and also skinned alive, all for no economic benefit. Its motive is simple sadism. 2017-05-21|
|Cetacean Intelligence||Cetaceans (Whales and dolphins) are intelligent. I give mostly personal experiences as evidence. This issue is particularly important because members of the Makah Indian band in Washington state have revived the ancient religious rites of whale sacrifice. The Makah along with most people are convinced that whales are just big cows and so it is perfectly OK to kill them. 2017-12-21|

|Protest Makah Whale Hunting||Members of the Makah Indian band in Washington state want to revive the ancient religious rites of whale sacrifice, only now using high power boats and high power weapons. The point of the exercise is not money or food, but to improve their self esteem. Why not revive the rites of human sacrifice while you are at it? 2018-02-05|

Downsides Of Drones
~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
- Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.
- Drones are just a high tech version of leaving a time bomb to go off in a public place. They kill civilians indiscriminately.
- To the killer, he is just playing a video game. There is no remorse.
- There is no risk in killing others. There is nothing to limit use of the weapons.
- Drones are conjuring up a impotent fury that will last for centuries in many parts of the world. Eventually their descendants will find a way to wreck horrible pent-up revenge.
- They are cowardly. The soldiers are fat pimply-faced boys who live with their mothers, who got their start torturing kittens.
- Consider Plato’s myth of Gyges.
