It is written: “Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among the people, even a marvellous work and wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.” Isaiah 29:14. And is it not so? I have never witnessed such lack of wisdom among our leaders. Take these great fires which seem bent on destroying the world, what do the leaders of the world do about it? The answer seems to be not really anything. But I have a suggestion for them: Why not form a taskforce of water bombers, say one thousand aircraft, 500 in the western hemisphere, and 500 for the eastern, and when there is a fire it can be put out with an aircraft coming in every thirty seconds around the clock. And don’t have these ridiculous helicopters with the little dinky cup of water swinging underneath to put out some enourous fire, that doesn’t work!
