Temperatures hit all-time recorded highs in early May in Vietnam and Laos. Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, also reached a record high. Much of these three countries and the rest of Southeast Asia have also been blanketed with heavy smog. The combination of extreme heat and smog is deadly. Scientists say that this is the result of global heating and we should expect more of the same, unless we do something about it.
This is just an example of what is happening all around the world. Global heating comes from so-called greenhouse gases that come mostly from burning petroleum and related chemicals.
If we hope to survive this disaster that the One Percent created and make sure things don’t get worse, people from here, Southeast Asia, and around the globe will have to stand up to Big Oil and its banks and politicians. They created the system and caused the problem. They have to be stopped.
