2016 was the year that humans saved themselves or not... and unfortunately humans did not and runaway GLOBAL WARming is their future. Instead of a Carbon Tax in 2017, DT will be drilling, fracking, digging more fossil fuels, global temperature will keep rising every year. The reason this has occurred is that Humans Are Blind.
Humans are blind to over 90% of the world. As supporting evidence:
1. HUMANS ARE BLIND TO THEIR OWN BLINDNESS.
Humans are blind to the fact that seeing is a continuum and that humans only see a small portion of that continuum.
2. HUMANS ARE BLIND TO THE INVISIBLE (that which they cannot see).
For example: the 3 states of water (solid ice, liquid water, and gas vapor). Humans can see and feel water in its solid and liquid form, but water as a gas becomes invisible.
3. HUMANS ARE BLIND TO TRUTH/REALITY.
Humans have thoughts and believe their thoughts. Humans would rather hold onto their beliefs than to know truth/reality.
4. HUMANS ARE BLIND TO BEING AN ANIMAL AND BLIND TO WHAT THAT MEANS.
Darwin proposed Evolution by Natural Selection over 150 years ago, with complete scientific support and confirmation ever since. Humans are human animals.
5. HUMANS ARE BLIND TO THEIR MIND’S EYE (their third eye).
When humans Awaken, they begin to see clearly with their mind’s eye, which allows them to begin to see the next three things:
6. HUMANS ARE BLIND TO THEIR SELF... a self is like seeing outward from a single point... the self is like a bubble in a vast ocean, which never rises to the surface. Humans are only aware of their conscious self and are blind to their subconscious self.
7. HUMANS ARE BLIND TO TIME.
Most humans think in terms of a short time: an hour, a day, a week, a month... few think of more than a year. Humans do not see 2, 5, 10, 100, 1000 years into the past or the future. Humans are blind to the very fast and the very slow.
8. HUMANS ARE BLIND TO SPACE.
Humans operate in a relatively small space, usually in the immediate vicinity. They can only see to the horizon and not over the horizon. Humans are blind to the very small and the very large.
9. HUMANS ARE BLIND TO THEIR ADDICTION TO FOSSIL FUEL ENERGY.
Signs of addiction: Daily use - Humans use fossil fuel energy everyday; Changing Appearance - Deterioration in the physical appearance of Earth; Continued Use Despite Negative Consequences - Humans keep ignoring global warming.
10. HUMANS ARE BLIND TO THEIR APPROACHING EXTINCTION FROM GLOBAL WARMING.
Since CO2 is invisible and global warming occurs so gradually, humans are essentially blind to global warming. Since humans are blind to the future, humans cannot see that runaway global warming is the biggest threat to their existence on Earth.
All of the above are the reasons humans suffer... their severe blindness. When humans recognize the above truths, then they will begin to wake up and see how to live with wisdom, compassion and joy.
