Are we still debating whether abrupt climate change is really real? Well as they say in conspiracy circles "if you want to find the truth behind a particular situation, then follow the money". That's what an incredibly thorough study has done by Robert Brulle of Drexel University. He's uncovered that a staggering $1 Billion a year is spent by conservative billionaires on funding climate change denial campaigns, such as undermining the United Nations climate panel's reports and influencing government policy at the highest levels.
Actually this doesn't surprise me at all. You only have to look around you from any street corner to see how heavily invested the 'system' is on maintaining the status quo, and how readily the masses are sucked into it. What does surprise me however, is that there are still those in the spiritual mainstream debating the reality of abrupt climate change. Really?
According to the report, there is a very well-funded, well-orchestrated climate change-denial movement, funded by powerful people with very deep pockets. Support is given by secretive charities to fund around "91 think tanks, advocacy groups and industry associations which have worked to block action on climate change". For example, generous support is given to "Americans for Prosperity", the advocacy group affiliated with the conservative Koch billionaires.
Brulle is quoted in the UK's Guardian as saying...
“This is how wealthy individuals or corporations translate their economic power into political and cultural power,” he said. “They have their profits and they hire people to write books that say climate change is not real. They hire people to go on TV and say climate change is not real. It ends up that people without economic power don't have the same size voice as the people who have economic power, and so it ends up distorting democracy.
Personally I don't need 91 'think' tanks or even 1 think tank, or even to think at all, to know the immediacy of the problem. For anyone in the spiritual mainstream still putting out messages that society generated climate change is "a scam to raise carbon taxes", I invite them simply to go out into nature, truly open the heart, connect with any creature you care to choose and to feel them. Feel the vibration of the earth. Feel the impact practically every action in society taken as 'normal' has. If you're truly awake, then you'll feel the truth beyond any debate.
To be fair, the global warming aspect of abrupt climate change is likely being temporarily offset by the Gand Solar Minimum, which has a cooling effect on global temperatures and by the ongoing Pole Shift. But that doesn't negate the amount of Carbon being released into the atmosphere and it's stored up impact, which is at all all-time record level where humanity is concerned.
Climate Change Denial has a seriously detrimental impact on one's ability to evolve. How so?
Because it's taking responsibility for our actions and impact on our surroundings that truly brings you back into alignment with the natural harmony and flow of life. Even if your contribution accounts for less than a drop in the ocean, nevetheless, the "ocean merges into the drop". Such genuine heartfelt action renders you a part of the essence of life itself. It's only compassion, surrender, humility and becoming as-one with the whole of life that brings you into the Universal interconnectivity of the flow.
Climate change deniers in the spiritual mainstream are denying their own connection!

But if you still really need confirmation, I suggest you go out and hug a tree!
