Will The Apocalyptic Effects Of Extreme Weather Finally Lead To A Global Environmental Marshall Plan?

Will The Apocalyptic Effects Of Extreme Weather Finally Lead To A Global Environmental Marshall Plan?
Listen to article

As we speak, untold misery is being caused by extreme weather, worldwide, as flash floods, wildfires and searing-heat, affect tens of millions, in all the seven continents of our environmentally beleaguered biosphere. The financial cost of such natural disasters is incalculable.

As the egregious-existential-dangers of a warming biosphere (extremes in weather) are properly understood, by ordinary people, globally, finally, one hopes that a positive outcome from the worldwide apocalyptic natural disasters, currently being experienced, will be the loosening of the iron-grip of the climate-change-denying hardliner-Conservatives' hold, on electorates, in the wealthy OECD nations.

A well-funded environmental equivalent, of the Marshall Plan, which enabled the U.S. to fund a devastated Europe's economic recovery, after the Second World War, for the whole world, today, is a must - for all of humanity clearly is at risk, from extreme weather, whether we hail from rich or poor societies. No question.

Battered worldwide by extreme weather, perhaps the question we must all ponder over is: By simply slashing the budgets of militaries, worldwide, can humankind not properly fund a green-funding initiative, which will support climate-change resiliency-planning, and rebuilding efforts, globally, to help the world cope better with the horrific effects of extreme weather?
