The fact is beyond irony; it rolls over into amusement. I should look to Erasmus’ treatise ‘In Praise of Folly’ for guidance perhaps, yet there is enough inspiration with the novel corona-virus and the warm water found beneath a large Antarctic glacier recently.
Of course there are too many environmental insults to mention individually. The atmosphere is warming, the oceans are rising, species are undergoing human-caused mass extinctions and the oceanic cradle of life is becoming acidic and wreaking damage to shellfish.
Numerous unnecessary conflicts such as that of Ukraine are a consequence of political leaders chasing after money instead of peace and prosperity for a world made to work together cooperatively.

Democrats have supported war there instead of peace with Russia yet have also said they will put forward a green infrastructure plan costing 760 billion dollars U.S., probably because the impeachment of President Trump failed.
Humanity with an introverted macro-worldview cannot usually see the woods for the individual trees that seem such objects made for profit. As humanity burns the planks of its ecosphere for more financial velocity it also invents technology that accelerates dangers of democide with biological weapons and once again increases nuclear weapons proliferation.
Thankfully the human race may create a sustainable and independent Moon colony soon and after that, a Martian colony so a tiny fraction of the human race could theoretically survive the planets’ destruction. I am confident that human political leadership will discover some way to nip though survivors in the bud and assure the extinction of the entire human race- at the very moment when it is most burgeoning in numbers with global overpopulation.
It is somewhat funny that humanity can invent so many tools and technology and have no capacity to use it reasonably with ecospheric zoning criteria that keep the world’s ecosphere safely healthy and intact. The simplest way is to restore large wilderness areas amidst metropolitan population centers with new technology prevent harm to humans from wildlife. I shouldn’t mention all of the optimistic and excellent prospects that exist for the human future if they can solve the world-view problems they have endemically.
A need to synergize free enterprise with ecospheric restoration need be made with economic and political economy reform and that sort of thing though simple paradigmatically is probably beyond the world-view paucity found in at least most U.S. politicians.
