Earth Expected To Fry

The accounting giant PricewaterhouseCoopers has published a report warning businesses that we are headed for a 4.0°C (7.2°F) or even a 6.0°C (10.8°F) [global temperature rise].

~ Naomi Klein (born: 1970-05-08 age: 44) This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate

To put that in perspective, since the start of the industrial revolution, up to now, we have had a 0.18°C (0.32°F) rise.


Purpose of Money

Originally money was a rationing system. Its intent was to ensure nobody consumed too big a share of the pie. Today its intent is quite different. It is used to enforce status. Low status people are prevented from consuming even necessities like food, shelter and medicine. High status people are encouraged to conspicuous consumption. Money makes status obvious even to strangers.
