Gigantic resources are misallocated to issues of ‘climate change’.
During the last 24,000 years since the last glacial maximum, the sea level has risen 122 meters, 90 meters of that during the last 15,000 years when proto-Europeans occupied the North Sea and English Channel - on dry land. In this time, the Sahara desert has been dry, then green, lush and humid and then dry again. Less than 3,000 years ago Carthage and Roman Libya were not built for their desert views. Rising greenhouse gases had absolutely no part in all this ‘chaotic’ climate change.
We seem to be collectively blind to the near certainty that our access to abundant affordable energy is about to be turned into a cut-throat competition between consumers. This is because the World’s dwindling number of net hydrocarbon suppliers simply cannot supply all rising demand. As that happens, just watch for the fall in carbon dioxide emissions so earnestly wished upon us by global warming alarmists. But this will happen because of economic collapse and mass hunger, rather than the globe converting towards green sustainability.
In what the UK Government comically describes as ‘The Energy Challenge’, the focus is upon ‘climate change’ (about which we can do absolutely nothing) and not the provision of secure, affordable energy supplies about which, if we are sufficiently serious and determined, we might still do something. Scary stuff!
