Things don't just happen independent of other factors/influences. There are consequences/costs and causes to everything especially in INHERENTLY UNFAIR, INEQUITABLE MODELS that favour the few at the expense of the many.
Unbalanced models break or collapse for obvious reasons, as occurred with the global economy in 2008. Future calamities could be avoided by intervening in the global economy with the view of balancing the HUGE disparities that exist today. Facilitating equitable and FAIR distribution of generated wealth would balance severely teetering economies.
A penalty economy based on a punitive Carbon Tax is clearly NOT the answer as it continues to favour existing financial elites at the expense of the community at large; disparities are not corrected by heavy tax burdens on the people -- industry has already made CLEAR that ALL additional costs will be passed onto the people!
The following video covers the causes of the current economic global crisis. In Greece and Italy Goldman Sachs bankers -- known to have committed huge frauds that helped destroy the global economy -- have replaced democratically elected leaders in government, that outrageous act alone should sound a clear warning to thinking people everywhere.
Bankers and financial elites take note, failure to respond FAIRLY to the current crisis could result in the elimination of the executive class from the planet -- do you imagine the masses do not see the PLAIN TRUTH? Be advised, you reprehensible, greedy beyond measure, PIGS!
