The Third World War will not be fought with guns. It’s the battle for the earth, not its ownership this time, but its existence. Who would have thought that of all the shortages our profligate living would lead to, it would be the very coolness and calmness of our planet’s skies. ”
“ Its such a revolutionary moment. Everything that anyone cares about – animals, wilderness, farming, refugees, peace, safety, freedom from terrorism, health, culture, heritage, but most of all – our children’s and their children’s ability to eat, breathe, support themselves, and not die in chaos, depends on this one single cause. … we have to stop the carbon madness. ”

To put in perspective what Joe Biden meant when he said there are companies literally too big to fail (aka they operate above the law, coming from America’s vice president):

The Hermes Birkin Handbag is about $10 THOUSAND.

The most expensive bottle of wine is about $100 THOUSAND.

The most expensive watch will cost you around $450 THOUSAND.

The Bugatti Veyron may cost you in the ballpark of $2.5 MILLION.

Oprah & Ralph Lauren own the same type of $65 MILLION private jet.

The Empire State Building cost about $500 MILLION in today’s money.

Together, Jay-Z and Beyonce have net worths of about $740 MILLION.

The ‘poorest’ on Forbes 400 richest people is worth $900 MILLION.

The 2012 presidential campaigns spent about $2 BILLION on advisers, ads and other costs.

Hurricane Sandy is estimated to have caused $50 BILLION in damage.

Bill Gates’ net-worth is $67 BILLION.

Japan’s nuclear disasters cost the country $500 BILLION in total economic losses.

America’s spent about $1.5 TRILLION in Iraq so far.

America is in debt about $18 TRILLION.

There are banks worth $500 TRILLION. ($500,000,000,000,000)

And most of the world is living on $10 a day or less as others are starving, and homeless, and ill. We have the resources to all live happily - to live in general - but life is a right reserved for those that can afford to pay up, I guess. The human condition is a disgusting one, don’t catch it.
