Either Way They Are More Dangerous To Your Future Than Any Terrorist
You wouldn’t know it from the mainstream media, your elected representatives or the folks at the US Chamber of Commerce, but we’re currently in the most threatening crisis our civilization has ever faced. Sure, if you’re a regular Creative Greenius reader you’re already hip to the news, but that only puts you in very enlightened and highly entertained minority.
If you weren’t a fellow traveler along the path of discovery with me, you might believe there is still a debate about the major issues of climate change. But you would be wrong. There is no debate. There is only a powerful propaganda campaign run by the corporate carbon collaborators and those who either embraced it with poisonous profit-driven passion or those who are the defiantly ignorant.
Just yesterday one of the worldwide leaders of the Deniers cult, a man whose blog has millions of readers, was exposed as the Crock of the Week – and the howling from Crazytown can be heard across the nation. Join us after the jump for the video that deniers and obstructionists tried to keep you from watching:
As my beloved state of California’s driftless and leaderless economy was being driven deeper and deeper into the toilet by the least impressive occupants of Sacramento in modern history, I hopped in my del Sol Greeniusmobile and motored to downtown Los Angeles last month headed for the palatial headquarters of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the MTA.
I had ventured forth from the calm, cooling breezes of my mellow beach community because the treasure map I had recently discovered showed that over $600 million was available inside that building.
The treasure chest was cleverly disguised in the form of Federal stimulus money from the ARRA, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Imagine that.
While it’s sad but true that the entire gang in Sacramento can no longer figure out how to make California work, President Obama and his “Yes I Can” team do know what they’re doing. That’s why they have authorized over $7 billion bucks in energy efficiency and clean energy programs for the USA. And damned if California isn’t going to score like a horny Republican Governor on Viagra in Argentina.
These great kids down under are taking part in a ‘flash mob’ on the steps of the Sydney Opera House, dancing as a creative protest at the Power Shift 2009 youth climate summit.
They have only three very reasonable demands:
Green Jobs for our generation,
A Power Shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy,
50% by 2020 carbon pollution reduction targets for Australia.
Feel free to dance along as we demand no less for the USA!

As our planet’s atmosphere overheats because the greenhouse gas firewall we’ve built by burning fossil fuels works so damn well, there is one secret weapon we can all still whip out if we want to fight back and try to save ourselves from frying.
It’s not sexy and it doesn’t make a bunch of old school, balding, white, male, carbon collaborators stinking filthy rich, so it’s no wonder they’ve done every evil and despicable thing in their power to keep this weapon from being aimed at them.
But nothing can stop the Creative Greenius, the most Powerful Man in America, and now I am going to put this same secret weapon in your hands and together we are going to use it to destroy the carbon-based economy and create a new, stronger, more American green economy in its place. Won’t that be fun?!
And the people who are going to try to stop us will be decimated along with their evil, hell-based philosophy, the one they’ve been spewing without fear of justice – until now. But now justice is going to come down upon them like the mighty Thor’s hammer, except we’re going to add a little squeak toy noise at the end just before we clobber them – you know, for the kids…
So come on along with me now to my clandestine and ultra sophisticated weapons laboratory and discover how to arm yourselves…

While the finely tailored and pampered leaders of the G8 met in Italy to talk the issue of climate change to death and do nothing tangible about it, activists with a more realistic sense of urgency started to take the necessary action to start cutting greenhouse gases right now.
Brave environmental activists from Greenpeace actually took a bold climate initiative today, doing so in my grandfather’s homeland of Italy, where they occupied four coal-fired power plants. It’s a shame they didn’t hold those plants hostage until they turn those plants into “clean coal” plants. Your Greenius wishes he was there with them because coal-fired power plants are the enemy of mankind and deserve to be shut down until they stop killing people and the climate.
In the United States, a different set of high climbers made another powerful statement this time directly on the face of Mount Rushmore with a banner as long as Lincoln’s face reading:
“Americans honor leaders, not politicians. Stop global warming.“
Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, returned from the great hereafter this morning to condemn the Los Angeles Times for being a cause of global warming and then covering it up in the newspaper he mocked as,
Already more lifeless and brain dead than I am now!
The once Gloved-One threw down his ghostly gauntlet and said tomorrow’s memorial at Staples Center would be more rightly held for the L.A. Times since it was time to bury the now deceased legacy media member born in 1889 which he says shows no sign of life.
The L.A. Times isn’t a newspaper anymore, it’s an abusepaper that is part of the climate change problem, not part of the solution,
said the still world popular entertainment legend. Continue reading
If you’re like me you would have found yesterday’s gathering in Santa Monica a very sexy day at the beach. And by sexy I mean hot and arousing, the way I get when serious people talk serious talk about renewable energy, about the revolution that’s needed to respond to climate change and about the reality of current world situation. You know, the kind of stuff never discussed on television or in the newspapers anymore. The kind of stuff that transcends the bread and circuses offered to the masses today.

But let’s face it, I’ve got a pretty unconventional sense of sexy and as one of the ace marketers of my generation I know what brand of sex sells best to the people. That’s why I’d always like the features and benefits of any product I introduce to the mass market to be pointed out by someone like the young woman in the sunglasses above. Having the world’s greatest car is nice. But knowing how to sell it best is the kind of genius I can appreciate. Continue reading
I initially gave Exxon/Mobil till 2020 to get out of Torrance and clean up their toxic mess here in my town. But now that I’ve found out they’re still lying and covering up their role in climate change and the size of their own carbon footprint, I’m going to have to get tougher with them. Some people just cannot be negotiated with and need a swift, hard kick in the ass. Sometimes they need several of them.
The global gangbangers from Exxon/Mobil are like that. They’ll forever claim to be reformed and rehabilitated but in the end they’ll always knife you in the back and sell crack to your kids. It’s just part of their DNA. They’ve been acting that way for generations.
That’s why I shouldn’t have been surprised when I read this today in the Guardian of England:
The world’s largest oil company is continuing to fund lobby groups that question the reality of global warming, despite a public pledge to cut support for such climate change denial, a new analysis shows.
