Have The Lunatics Really Taken Over The Asylum?

Gone from the Rio agreement is a commitment to end subsidies to the fossil fuel industry. Gone is any clear commitment to protect our oceans from over-fishing and pollution. The money needed to pay for clean energy, and to ensure that the growing world population has access to decent food and clean water, is no-where to be seen. Again, our leaders have reminded us that whilst cash can be found to pursue wars and to rescue banks, nothing is left to help billions of people out of poverty or protect the ecosystems upon which human life ultimately depends.

It seems once more that the World is heading for a nervous breakdown, its owners are driving it like madmen, when will those that have the money and the will-power see sense and stop the insanity?

Have the lunatics really taken over the asylum?
