Re: Climate Change
Yes, the climate is changing, it always has, and has done so, with or without humans.
Greenery loves CO2, the more there is the more of it gets taken in.
The real problem is the fact that we have is....
6.5 billion people. They all want the good life.
And some Earthlings want to tell other Earthlings what they can have and have not.
Our vehicles are powered by gasoline which comes from oil in the ground.
There is no viable, practical substitute for gasoline at this point in time.
Yet, some Earthlings want to cut off the supply. This will crash economies and people will then starve.
What is worse, mass starvation or less CO2 in the atmosphere. If the ice caps are melting and coastal cities are at risk, what is the best solution?
Uh, not cutting off most means of transportation (cars, trucks) , so people cannot get to work. The United States is too large and vast, public transportation is not efficient.
The powers to be allowed rail to dwindle away to almost nothing. Leaving trucks and planes to deliver our goods.
No work, no salary.
No salary, people cannot buy food, yes, they starve and then they riot.
Oh, only in the West. The Chinese and the Indians, they do not 'have' to participate.
If the Western economies collapse, Russia and China will laugh their asses off over our 'stupidity'.
And then take over, killing the millions who live off the lands.
The solution is to find a better power source. And a 'much' better battery. Batteries that can be charged up by the Sun in the vast deserts.
And then shipped back and forth, to the consumer, then back out to the sunlit deserts to be recharged.
And to build up our military to the max so that we survive the next Greatest War.
It is coming.
Avoid the small battles, we must protect our own interests, and our GOOD allies, only!
We need to be Nationalists, with keeping our country strong and in first place. Any other solution is naive' and is doomed from the start.
Major war is on the Horizon. Climate changers and soft and kind nice guys and gals will be the first killed.
It has always been this way. And always will. Well, it likely will stay this backwards way, for eons.
There might be good socialists, but there are no good communists. And communists always overthrow those educated nice guys and gals.
Oh, I know Fascists are dangerous also.
This is our human condition.
We can work well in small tribes, not so well when tribes try to compete with each other for scarce resources.
This....This is the nub of the stick that pokes me in the eye when the light of day energizes my optic nerve....SunCMars.... The Allegory of the Cave--> On this, I did a '180' and stepped out. The Lion in Winter. Invictus..By Will, Shall.
With The Host, RD back will there be any interest in telling Tales? Red Dog longs for his master?
