You would have to be somewhat out of touch if you did not notice the continuing efforts by the unelected academic elites and their political masters waxing hysterically, or in variations of, looming dooming climate change in the near future if we, naughty humans, do not mend our ways, pay an indulgence and return to a more primitive, carbon-free existence.
The catastrophic climate change meme isn’t new but can be read about in the old Jewish Talmud, or biblical old testament, or in the Indian Upanishads and other cultural analogs humans seem to have saddled themselves with.
Me? I think the climate changers might have a chance if they could demonstrate the power of the climate change meme if, for example, they were to show how they could start up a tropical hurricane, cause it to move laterally at will over the Earth’s surface, execute forward and backward movements, make it wax and wane at will, stall it, and start it up again; generally show how humans could control this natural phenomenon. Until that happens I prefer to associate the changing climate(s) with chance, accepting the Third Independent Assessment Report by the IPCC that climate is a coupled, non-linear chaotic system, and therefore the long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.
In other words “shit happens” and the only response to any climate change is to adapt to the changing environment. Those who can’t or won’t are simply fossils, old life forms snap-frozen in time.
