Re: “Major health study shows benefits of combatting climate change

Whether its mass deforestation in Brazil, or increasingly dry forests resulting in record-breaking deadly wildfires in California, and now even in B.C., or a myriad of other categories of large-scale toxic pollutant emissions and dumps, currently theres discouragingly insufficient political gonad planet-wide to sufficiently address it.
Maybe due to (everyones) Spaceship Earths large size, there seems to be a general obliviousness in regards to our natural environment, as though pollutants emitted out of exhaust and drainage pipes, or tall smoke stacksor even the largest contamination eventscan somehow be safely absorbed into the air, sea, and land (i.e. out of sight, out of mind). It may be the same mentality that allows the immense amount of plastic waste, such as disposable straws, to eventually find its way into our life-filled oceans, where there are few, if any, caring souls to see it. Indeed, its quite fortunate that the plastic waste doesnt entirely sink out of sight to the bottom, like Albertan diluted bitumen crude oil (dilbit) spills, for then nothing may be done about it, regardless of divers reports of the awful existence of such plastic tangled messes. Also, it must be quite convenient for the fossil fuel industry to have such a large portion of mainstream society simply too exhausted and preoccupied with just barely feeding and housing their families on a substandard, if not below the poverty line, income to criticize the former for the great damage its doing to our planets natural environment and therefore our health, particularly when that damage may not be immediately observable.
After all, why worry about such things immediately unseen, regardless of their most immense importance, especially when there are various undesirable politicians and significant social issues over which to disputedistractions our mainstream news-media sadly are willing to sell us?
Undoubtedly, to have almost everyone addicted to driving their own fossil-fuel-powered single occupant vehicle helps keep their collective mouths shut about the planets greatest and very profitable polluter, lest they feel like and/or be publicly deemed hypocrites.
Although I have never (nor likely ever will) own and/or operate any form of motor vehicle, there are many green-minded people who rely upon their (probably very efficient) fossil-fuel powered cars since they havent had a monetarily feasible opportunity to acquire an electric vehicle. Also, I believe its no coincidence that the first thing upon his Progressive Conservative Partys election into office after a campaign won in part with a large political donation from the fossil fuel industry Premier Doug Ford canceled government rebate incentives for electric car buyers in Ontario.
