David Suzuki on Rio+20

[Approximate Watching Time: 30 minutes]
[Mood: Informed] 


Another one of my alternative news sources, Democracy Now, interviews David Suzuki, noted Canadian environmental activist and scientist, talking about what really goes on at climate conferences where global leaders meet and discuss the climate issue.

Again, the usual disclaimer, I don't look at everything Democracy Now puts out and I don't believe everything I look at but they do offer information and ideas that I take into account as I go about making sense of the world I live in.

And here's Marvin Gaye's classic song along the same theme from the album "What's Going On":



Woo ah, mercy mercy me
Ah things ain't what they used to be, no no
Where did all the blue skies go?
Poison is the wind that blows from the north and south and east
Woo mercy, mercy me, mercy father
Ah things ain't what they used to be, no no
Oil wasted on the ocean and upon our seas, fish full of mercury
Ah oh mercy, mercy me
Ah things ain't what they used to be, no no
Radiation under ground and in the sky
Animals and birds who live nearby are dying
Oh mercy, mercy me
Ah things ain't what they used to be
What about this overcrowded land
How much more abuse from man can she stand?
Oh, na na...
My sweet Lord... No
My Lord... My sweet Lord
