    In 1962 a young idealistic US President gave a speech which challenged the American people to achieve the goal of reaching the moon within a decade "not because it was easy but because it was hard" and in 1969 that extraordinarily difficult goal was achieved.

    Today a half century later the worlds scientists are challenging the world's nations to achieve another goal within a decade and that goal is to begin creating a world powered by renewable energy instead of fossil fuels and whether or not this goal is achieved will determine the very survival of life on earth and the technology to achieve this goal is available today but the world's corrupt, bribe taking governments refuse to change over to renewables and the attitude of these corrupt politicians is "Why the hell should we care since we'll be dead and gone when climate change destroys the planet?!"

    Likely it is not the "climate change" which is destroying this planet; is is the " people" who caused it, who are not only destroying their own species, but also other living things in nature and also are even turning space into an junkyard. "Termites" are only sweet little chewers, compared to the greed infested "human" race. Please keep selecting "earth destroying" insects like Trump and his cronies and the success will be "tremendous". Amen
