Sanctions tend to create enemies. Enemies create excuses for conflict.
The Earth needs intelligent compassion and firm evidence based information on the damage caused by humans. There is too much emotional hysteria at the moment. All this lying down in front of things and dressing up like a pantomime actor makes any cause look flimsy and its proponents look daft. All the vitriol and hatred spilled onto the ordinary population, all the blame and finger pointing and sly political manipulation isn't going to fix what is broken.
