The "truth" about climate change - a little story Answered
Global warming, climate change, jelly fish attacks, changed ocean currents...
We all know the highlights from the news but what is the real deal behind all of this?
It can't be denied that burning fossil fuels with no regrets has an impact on our globe.
CO2 and other gasses or elements have been trapped for thausands of years.
We release them all into our atmosphere and while doing so keep adding more harmful stuff.
So, of course it is easy to say that if we would have nver used our fossile fuels to this extent then our world would be unharmed and a happy place throughout.
Even if we would ignore the impossible task of making it where we are right now without having used any fossile fuels: How much would it be different?
If we trust the offical climate data that has been collected then it clearly shows a rise in so called climate changing emissions since our industrial revolution started.
Be it data from the ice, core drillings or just sample taken from old canyons - the results are all the same.
Since the late 1800's there is a steady rise in emissions, CO2 and all the other things we don't really want in our air.
And for good reasons all these green advocates try their best to stop us from doing more harm.
Since the 80's we started to actually care more, better engines, catalytic converters, cleaning mechanisms for our industiral waste and chimneys.
But did it make any change or difference?
About 40 years now some countries try hard to do it right, so this must show up somewhere?!
Well it does not.
You see countries like the US never really cared about climate or the enviroment if there was a cheaper and easier option.
Just check how long it took them to even acknowledge that our climate is changing due to our interference...
Then there is China and as we have seen with the olympics they literally have to shut down production so you can see for more than a few km...
But the same is true for so many other countries.
Like everwhere else the industrial revolutions comes sooner or later and as always the cheapest way is done first and for far too long.
And with the delay in reactions and consequences it is now certain that the worst is yet to come.
Of course there is also another side to the entire story - nature itself.
We destroy it where we can to safisfy our need for being cheap.
Ever wondered where all this cheap furniture is coming from?
Or all the wood used throughout the world?
Rainforests are disappearing, flora and fauna is destroyed.
In most cases with a lot of fires as it is still the easiest way to clean up when done.
Now add the vulcanic eruptions that increased over the past 20 odd years around the world.
And if you dare all the bushfires or natural causes.
Combined this causes a higher impact than all our burning of fossile fuels - and it adds to the mix.
And this brings us back in time.
Taking the records of climete conditions all the way back to before the dinosaurs showed us that we had periods of much higher temperatures than what we might see soon.
CO2 level at some periods were so high that the earth literally was a green house.
So why did we humans amke it anyway onto this earth if chance were so bad?
Species adjust, evolve or go extinct, new ones appear...
Well, unless you are a croc or so and really don't care about Darvin and evolution ;)
Does that mean we are on the way to become a new species?
Sadly no, because we are the cause of all our problems.
We now use technology and science to adjust nature and the enviroment to our needs.
It gets too hot? Well add an airconditioner, will you!?
The ground water is too contaminted to drink? Well, why do you think we invented bottled water?!
You need room for new homes? Don't mind the flood planes, just drain them and build, there was no flood in over 30 years...
See, even if we would go fully green and honur nature around the world from today on.
Even if we try to clean up the mess we already created.
The effects of what we did over the last 40 or more years are still in progress and far from over.
Like a good stew it keep cooking until it is ready to serve.
But strenght comes in numbers!
Like a virus we keep multiplying even in areas with very limited ressources.
After all, we just import what we need..
Natural selection is being eliminated so pharma companies can make a living too.
From just over 40 years our "natural" life expectency increased now to well into the 80's.
You are not fertile? No problem we have means to fertilise your eggs with the sperm from hubby!
Already suffering badly from diabetes, asthma or other chronical illness? No problem, have some kids anyway.
And just to top it always make sure to avoid natural foods in favour for processed and artificial ingredients.
In nature the weak, the sick, the old, the malformed and incapable are a food source.
We took this food source away, keet them around, care for them and make sure really everyone has the same chance in life.
In life - but not in nature anymore!
Social evolution meant that natural selection was no longer a requirement to ensure a strong "tribe" or hunting party.
We compensated the drain on ressources and all pharma companies are still very grateful for this.
No this is no weird rant on humanity or the idea of some mad person, it is just the naked reality we like to ignore.
A horse breeder will not accept a weak and constanlty sick horse for his breeding stock.
A broken leg, like for a cow usually just means the animal is put down.
Some dog breeders still prefer to cull a few pups just because the color pattern is not nice enough or the ears are too short.
Even if you just breed fish you o through all sorts of troubles to ensure you have the best genes available in your tanks.
You think this is already going to far with the ideas, I know :(
But we have real world examples highlighting the results of the exact opposite: Inbreeding and ignoring the defects in genes and health.
The british royal family destroyed the italian and russin monarchies the same was the spanish and protugise, even impacted on the french.
In times when there was no clue about genetic defects or deseases that can be dormant in females but very active in males, the british royalty simply kept providing tainted bloodlines to the other royal familes.
No offsprings that are male and of good health meant the end of their monarchies.
The british survived by allowing the common folk to join the blue blood lines and now it is common in all the monachrchies left in the world.
Remove the carries, provide fresh genes to get a better diversity.
Really no offence, but just look at Charles and Camilla ;)
Jokes aside: the story of the european monarchies shows what happens if things go too wrong.
From hunters a gatherers that either kept healthy or died out we eveloved to having a gene pool that is full of nasty surprises.
Again no offence meant in any way or to any person!
If we compare our world with a big aquarium than it might have eveloved like this:
Once there was a bowl full of plants, guppies and lots of other fish and creatures living on each other.
Over time the guppies learnt when the feeding times are and made sure they get most of the food.
Slowly the other psecies had not enough room and food anymore, only the hunter had a good linving with the huge supply of guppies.
Then the guppies managed to reduce the dangers from all predators around and started to really take off.
Soon every guppy had only conerns about having a good life and enough food.
The waste got more and more, the sick and ill too.
The last hunter able to fight them died off as he too suffered from the wasten the changed enviroment and gnetic defects transfered.
Now there is little plants left, guppies everywhere, crap everywhere and even those guppies only living a few months still manages to find a partner to ensure their tainted gene pool spreads into the general population.
We have no tank owner getting the balance right again, removing the sick and weak, we humans just keep going strong and if the crap pile gets too high we put grass and houses on top of it....
We humans don't like to be compared with fish, a virus or any other lower being for that matter.
These hings just don't affect or concern us.
And anyone who dares to do so anyway has a long list of nasty words thrown at them.
Is it because we humans can't tolerate the truth?
Or is because deep inside we all know but refuse to think about it?
