Pushing “climate change” to distract attention
When confidence in a good future begins to fall apart, everything else will fall apart
By Ray Kraft
The US Government isn’t as stupid as it looks. For a long time the EPA had a chart up showing constant climate change during the last 10,000 years, but the Trump administration took it off line.
I have a “conspiracy theory” that the Gov knows very well that the next ice age is on the way, it just doesn’t know when, how soon, how quickly, so it pushes the “global warming / climate change” deal to distract attention, to keep people believing in the future, if we can “do something” about global warming (like going to renewable energy) we can maintain confidence.
When confidence in a good future begins to fall apart, everything else will fall apart.
If the climate is warming because of fossil fuels, we need to go to renewables to stop climate change, goes the story.
But if the next Ice Age is coming, we need to go to renewables because oil and gas are finite energy sources, they won’t last forever, they probably won’t last (at current production levels) more than a few decades.
If the human species as we know it is to survive the next Ice Age, its survivable will depend on solar and wind energy, and nuclear and hydrogen.
My guess is that by the end of the next Ice Age the small and scattered surviving tribes of humans will be foragers, hunters, gatherers, nomads, again, as they were before the last Ice Age.
There will be legends of a magical time in the distant past when there were wagons and chariots that moved themselves, without horses, and machines that flew in the sky with people in them!
And the people of 100,000 years from now will know these are just fantasies, myths, legends, campfire stories, bedtime stories, fairy tales, that such things are impossible.
