Part of the problem is probably my usual visual struggle but I've read through that more than once now and I don't think I have any clear idea at all of what they think this coming disaster is or what its causes are. Could you break it down to a few clear statements perhaps? Thanks.

A friend and I have talked some recently about the clash between the environmentalists and the people who want to see the economy prosper, which seem to divide pretty strictly on party lines. it seems like there is a monumental disconnect between the two sides, neither side having any sympathy for the problems as seen by the other side. There is one conservative talk show host, Michael Savage, who talks a lot about saving the environment, saving the animals and so on, and is not happy with Trump's focus on the economy to the detriment of the environment.

(He says he wrote a book years ago about the importance of planting trees for the health of the planet. I couldn't find the book but I've often thought of planting trees as something we should be doing with the climate change issues in mind, to put more oxygen in the air and let the plants absorb the carbon dioxide. This should be a huge undertaking, involving research into the best kinds of plantings for different locations and organizations as well as individuals doing their bit, everybody frequently planting trees in designated locations. Green up the deserts, replenish the Amazon rain forest, etc etc etc. I know it probably sounds a bit wacky. )

Seems a very good thing to become independent of Saudi oil, but not such a good thing if it takes a heavy toll on Nature. I wish all this were being discussed with sympathy for both sides.

I don't see the connection between these things and end times prophecy myself. I think with the right focus we could straighten out a few things.
