Kentucky: A Third World State (Strategic Geo-political Considerations for Kentucky, #1)
I. Kentucky: A Third World State
 
Kentucky politics has always been a contact sport where brute force is favored over strategic thinking. During most of the 20th Century, national leaders and media thinkers left us alone to do our worst to each other. As long as Kentuckians only destroyed the futures of their own people and kept the pain and suffering inside the boundaries of the state, our state leaders could enjoy years of spoils and political pay offs at the expense of the ordinary citizens of the estate.

Strategic Geo-Political Considerations for Kentucky
                    Natural Resources Issues 2010-2012
 
 
Editor’s Note:  Due to Kentucky’s geography and geology, the state has been either blessed or cursed by its unique physical features for sustaining life in the new world of post Copenhagen Climate Conference. Whether it’s a blessing or curse will be determined by the outcome of a 100 year cycle of big business and pure capitalism versus enlightened environmental management and new green technology jobs. 
 
For Kentucky, this struggle will intensify during the upcoming political elections from 2010 through 2012.   Geo-political futurist Ivan C. Potter has written a series of integrated articles about the fallout of Copenhagen and the realities of climate change politics in Kentucky.

Failure of Copenhagen Climate Conference (Strategic Geo-Political Considerations for Kentucky)
The failure of the Climate Change World Conference in Copenhagen put in play the possible death of a 40 year generational environmental movement in the United States. What started in the 1960’s with American public policy and general population support of a growing concern over environmental issues is now at risk of being sidetracked into the shadows of history

Post Copenhagen Era: The Kentucky Battlefield (Strategic Geo-Political Considerations for Kentucky)
In many parts of the world, a new perspective of heavy polluters’ economic worth vs. clean air or water regulations will now drive legislative debates.
 
One such battlefield will be Kentucky. This state has become overnight, one of the world’s worst examples of how robber baron control over natural resources extraction is providing economic destruction far from its borders.

Kentucky 2010 General Assembly and the Environmental Agenda (Strategic Geo-Political Considerations for Kentucky)
In a Post Copenhagen Era, Kentucky environmental politics will place the state at the forefront of any national or even global debate over who is directly responsible for damaging the planet. Kentucky’s protection of heavy metal and mega coal fired energy plants will soon become an issue platform for nations and planetary organizations to question what costs Kentucky must pay for this official policy.  As the 2010 Kentucky General Assembly takes their seats in Frankfort, the forces of big coal are emboldened by the failure in Copenhagen to establish a new global legal structure for dealing with pollution.

Man vs. Nature
At the dawn of this new millennium, the debate over climate change and the environment was moved into a new state of existence. Extremism in climate changes and weather events framed a dual track platform where the forces of nature hammered nations, coasts, states, and regions with a new sense of eco-reality. Track I was Nature stormed and raged. Track II became a path, along which Mankind met, talked, debated, and polluted.
