Take old and new scientific disciplines, mix in energy security, economics and geopolitics. Sprinkle some political ideologies seasoned with ulterior motives, and simmer for 20 years. And what you get is the climate change debate marinated in plenty of confusion, misinformation and divisiveness. The 2012 UN Climate Change Conference, COP 18/CMP is just around the corner scheduled to take place in Qatar (November 26th  - December 7th . Christiana Figueres, Executive Director of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) seems optimistic that governments around the world are inching ever closer to reaching an agreement to agree. Yes we have heard it all before and yet here we are 18 years later with mounting pressure to finalise the treaty process, after years of failed attempt to materialise an agreement.

Forget about radioactive fallout... look here, the Queen is visiting Ireland

Two months on and no end in sight, yes this is the current state of affairs when it comes to the painful issue of the ongoing nuclear radiation spills in Japan. Yet very little facts of the true extent of this global catastrophe trickles down to the forefront of the mass media and the collective consciousness at large.

Surprisingly the public who pay and will continue to pay the price with hard earned cash and the consequence to their health, seems quite content feeding on a diet of ready dished out trivia such as which Royal is wearing what hat? Who was not invited and who farts to the left... Some sense of priorities we have?!

In the same token; While too many Irish people are evacuated from their own streets to make way for a contentious Royal visit and protect the Queen, not enough Japanese people are evacuated from their own homes to protect them from the uncontrolled crisis of nuclear radiation that will plague their environment and ours for many millennia to come...

Intro:

Now, my grandmother was a wonderful person. She taught me how to play the game Monopoly. She understood that the name of the game is to acquire. She would accumulate everything she could and eventually, she became the master of the board. And then she would always say the same thing to me. She would look at me and she would say: “One day, you'll learn to play the game.”
One summer, I played Monopoly almost every day, all day long. And that summer, I learned to play the game. I came to understand the only way to win is to make a total commitment to acquisition. I came to understand that money and possessions- that's the way that you keep score. And by the end of that summer, I was more ruthless than my grandmother. I was ready to bend the rules if I had to, to win that game. And I sat down with her to play that fall. I took everything she had. I watched her give her last dollar and quit in utter defeat. And then she had one more thing to teach me.
Then she said: “Now it all goes back in the box. All those houses and hotels. All the railroads and utility companies... All that property and all that wonderful money... Now it all goes back in the box. None of it was really yours. You got all heated up about it for a while. But it was around a long time before you sat down at the board and it will be here after you're gone: players come, players go. Houses and cars... Titles and clothes... Even your body.”
Because the fact is that everything I clutch and consume and hoard is going to go back in the box and I'm going to lose it all. So you have to ask yourself when you finally get the ultimate promotion when you have made the ultimate purchase when you buy the ultimate home when you have stored up financial security and climbed the ladder of success to the highest rung you can possibly climb it... and the thrill wears off - and it will wear off - Then what?
How far do you have to walk down that road before you see where it leads? Surely you understand it will never be enough. So you have to ask yourself the question: What matters?
