Climate change anyone?

My thoughts exactly. With the general decline in religiosity, people still have a built-in need to fear an apocalyptic "something", it's been in our genes for hundreds of thousands of years. And something to feel guilty about as well. Add it to the long long list of failed predictions. of doom..

Religion took our natural fears and fed them. We all have anamilistic responses hardwired into us.
I do think that the environment is worth looking after whether you believe the hype or not. I used to want to wreck the place, now I want to leave no trace, bar a couple of sculptures.

I understand that Virtue signalling about such "big" matters is so much more popular than sorting out ones own dysfunctional life, lovelife or finances.

So the academic work that has been done - too dull and difficult to read? Rather get your opinions via Youtube?

A bit tangential perhaps....

Except each of those three pictograms need a 3 diagram to show the fall in the cost of food/the number of houses built on fertile floodplains/population increases/the acres of agricultural land covered with concrete runways to facilitate needless holiday travel, etc etc.

All to easy to focus on the farmer, when his choices are driven by or constrained by societies ruthless demands.

Unless you can persuade the Green Party supporters to turn up and labour manually for free like the serfs of old, to support the non-mechanical food husbandary they so apparently favour.

And eat the very plain fare so provided, you want another bowl of pottage there Jonathan and Siân?

The solutions is simple Marcus!

 - immigration moratorium

 - maybe sterilise the Jeremy Kyle demographic also - theme gonna be at each other hellish now the show’s on the ropes!

Meh!
I ud worry more about a big fucking meteorite crash-bang-walloping into the Earth.
And as easy to predict or prevent as any of our present perceptions of climate instability.
mth

Then there’s the possibility of a volcanic eruption that spews enough crap into the atmosphere to makes our efforts of killing our planet small beer.
I do believe in global warming, although I also believe it is an easy revenue generator for governments through tax. How can you argue against paying tax when your burning fossil fuels and you know you’re doing damage.
A salmon fishing friend was on board a survey ship which has been monitoring Atlantic sea temperatures. What they’ve discovered is that sea temperatures have risen to an extent that Grilse ( mature but lower weight salmon that return to their river after one sea winter, as against a multi-sea wintering fish) cannot find the prey in the feeding areas they are programmed to go to. The increase in sea temp has made krill and other pelagic prey move further north to colder waters. The Grilse that return are consequently thin and small. Their evolution cannot allow them to work out the problem.
There again if they do make it back there’s 5 times the number of seals (from the 1960s) on the east coast and sea lice infestation on the west coast from bad salmon farming practice awaiting fish in poor condition.

And that’s just salmon affected by a sea temperature rise of one degree.
