. . . Paradoxically Speaking! by Johnnie Buttram
The clock was still ticking - but in the real world he was outta time; the jig was up; the game was over!
This is a true story about a shrewd businessman (SBM) I met about 30 years ago that was so un-likable . . he reminded me of the kid who was so obnoxious his folks had to tie a bone around his neck to even get the dog to play with him.
However, what this guy lacked in personality . . his business acumen was so acute he could almost pick up a rock and there could be a dollar under it.
But for obvious reasons known and unknown, he was always in some kind of lawsuit which required the services of local attorneys and especially one attorney in particular.
In one case, with the attorney in particular, the case crawled along and every time the (SBM) asked the attorney how the case was going the attorney stated, "It's going to take a little more time".
Frustrated, the businessman hired a lawyer from out of town - went through a side door and settled the case.
Two weeks later - the businessman was on the phone with the local attorney and asked him about the case.
The local attorney replied that he was still working on it - however, it would require just a little more time.
The businessman, abruptly, told the local attorney that he had settled the case 2 weeks ago and that his secretary would be over and pick up all his files in 30 minutes.
The bottom line here is;
The attorney's clock was still ticking - but in the real world he was outta time; the jig was up; the game was over!
Could this universal story be indicative of what's sadly occurring on Planet Earth today concerning Climate Change?
While many world leaders shun the hard decisions of the real world in which we all live and embrace those cavalier agendas of their world as they see it . . the masses who are desperately struggling to maintain the very essentials of life are becoming increasingly restless.
What actions do you propose?
A few short years ago when climate change became a planetary topic of concern . . the deniers climbed to the rooftops and raised their voices for 15 minutes of fame.
The Irony of Denial;
What is the humanitarian exchange rate . . for 15 minutes of fame?
The Irony Continues;
Today, science has spoken. The deniers of yesterday have been replaced by detractors and solution delayers, who cloak themselves in neutrality to confuse, confound, and expand their self-serving agendas on the global masses.
Two modicums of Hope;
(1) EXCLUSIVE climate change solution formats, who once dominated the media, now watch their members move outside-the-box to expand perimeters.
(2) Institutions and think tanks, with the foresight and resources to recognize INCLUSION a/k/a the collective intelligence of those who will be impacted . . have provided alternative custom formats to identify, research, and collaborate as responsible voices of reason.
A Monumental Challenge;
In a world obsessed with self-serving and cavalier agendas . . it is paramount the skilled minds of EXCLUSIVE and INCLUSIVE think tanks with the capabilities to move forward to design a credible and overlapping format to identify those who are self-serving to the detriment of the masses.
Adaptation is not designed as a key factor to effect significant change in the climate change arena.
If innovation continues to be denied access to the climate change arena by deniers, detractors, and solution delayers . . the only option standing between Planet Earth and chaos is the rapid up-front implementation of humanitarian band-aids on a massive scale!
The clock is still ticking . . but in the real world, we are running out of time for innovation and adaptation if we are to exit the paradoxical roads that leads to planetary chaos.
Who will take these actions?
Institutions and think tanks with the foresight and resources to recognize collective intelligence as responsible voices of reason.
Where will these actions be taken?
Everywhere on Planet Earth there is an opportunity.
How will these actions have a high impact in addressing climate change?
If deniers, detractors, and solution delayers remain anonymously
unbridled until we reach the tipping point . . humanity will pay a cost
never seen before in the annuals of mankind.
What are other key benefits?
If self-serving groups and individuals are aware the possibility
exists they will eventually be identified, and held ethically and
moralistically responsible . . they may rethink self-centered
strategies . . as the human toll and loss of life could be enormous.
What are the proposal’s costs?
Although millions of lives and trillions of dollars are on the line, the
monetary costs for this humanitarian proposal are ZERO!
The cost of in-action . . is unfathomable.
Progress begins when one individual has a simple discussion with
a friend about their related abilities to make a difference.
We must never forget that Adaptation is not designed as a key
factor to effect significant change in the climate change arena.
If innovation continues to be denied access to the climate change
arena by deniers, detractors, and solution delayers . . the only
option standing between Planet Earth and chaos is the rapid up-
front implementation of humanitarian band-aids on a massive
scale! (Reference - 1)

As rational thinkers, we must stand apart from those who will
not question the motives of those who directly or indirectly
control the destinies of those we love.
This is our moral responsibility!
