Climate Change or a Change of Habits?
Having endured and studied the whole argument for many years
now, its has become a fight between the well funded supporters of Co2 caused
climate change and the skeptic’s whom dare to defy the whole political correctness
of man made climate change.
So the choice seems to have become one of do we believe the
many scientists and professionals that are granted an income to find supporting
evidence of the Co2 caused warming theory, or the ever increasing range of
similar supposed experts whom dare risk their good name by opposing the theory.
I for one have always considered long before the hypocorism
of the original findings of the UN, that we must all consider ways in which to
lesson our impact on our environment, and during my studies have never
considered the life blood of our plant life Co2 to have been the future blame
of all our worry’s.
The problem we now face if climate change be the biggest
worry facing our future, is not one of a decision of who or what is to blame,
but more so, what steps must be taken to ensure our populations ability to
prepare for what the weather is about to hand out.
I would consider that a smart move would be to ensure
adequate infrastructure projects to ensure a plentiful supply of power, food
and potable water would be on the agenda, that we would as a world player, be
ensuring that we are putting all our resources into preparing for what may lay
ahead, be it cooling or warming of our climate.
Funnily enough our respective governments seem to be going
in the other direction, the diversion of our food production to satisfy the
green fuel agenda, the reduction of reliable power sources for the same reason,
and very little advancement in storm water harvesting and increased water
storage, which combines to also have a great affect on food production.
The strange but true part of this whole story is that
increased Co2 and warmer temperatures actually would aid food production, which
seems to be less than a fearful event considering our worlds huge population
The Governments position in this whole argument is one of
rationing, and increased consumer expense via the introduction of the aptly
named RATS Bill, how can we truly survive an increase in population at the same
time we have decided to reduce availability or reliable power, food and water
I swear I can hear the scream “ 1800’s here we come” yet who
of us is ready for that?
So the argument is not one of are we warming or not, or even
the cause of such, but rather what steps are being taken to combat any looming
disaster, what ever mother nature maybe about to throw at us, we will not
survive by ignorance of foresight, with lack of food and water and without
advancements in the technologies to provide and protect our future
I truly doubt that as far as we have come as a world, that
any of us think we can truly change the weather, and with the political
decision being the more the merrier when it comes to our population, why does
this not include our essential infrastructure and the social services to
