When the only concern of capitalism is profit, the future does not look good. How much longer will denial work?

Scientists who have spent their lives looking at the destruction of nature are not being believed because mankind doesn't respect nature or think into the future. Antibiotic resistance is meeting diseases for which there is no cure.

Our food supply is increasingly unhealthy due to GMOs, pesticides and overuse of antibiotics. Artificial food is given to food animals to quickly expand their size and growth.

Fracking is destroying billions of gallons of water with the tainted, toxic version of water being pumped into the earth causing health and environmental problems and earthquakes.

Our air is increasingly polluted. Last winter's polar vortex delayed spring. Life at the lower end of the food chain is dying off, and it will affect our supply. Bees are dying.

And who cares?
