Indigenous Australians File Landmark Human Rights Claim With UN Over Government's Inaction on Climate Crisis

Jessica Corbett, staff writer

Why are the so called “white” people so stupid? The indigenous seem to be so much closer to the planet and our eco system because they know the benefits. Over population, deforestation, oil and gas mining, chemical sprays, coal and nuclear plants, Monsanto roundup, animal abuse, etc… all happening in white dominated societies, I wonder what happened to us? Why are we all such mean spirited killers

I would love to have a world governing body with strength, wisdom, expediency, fairness. Are these contradictory terms?
