So, we have the latest IPCC report and the 1.5deg C is sort of like …. wha …. its like sooo YESTERDAY.
whoops I’m being monitored, slow drag take up from whatever I type, oh well as it may …
So, listening to bbc r4 here in the UK today 9th Oct 2018 was sad, laughable and bloody annoying. So wet, so insipid following from the tougher IPCC Report to hear the invited ‘expert’ girlie person tell us we need to insulate our homes (we mostly are already) look into solar panels but mind the cost and use the bus if we can. My dear girl, and I wish to be derogatory, the necessary moves we need to make are so much harsher and unpalatable to our affluent consumer and car mobilised society … ie a BIG reduction in red meat (forget about burgers America and everyone else) … walk or cycle to work, wash clothes less or quicker and air dry if poss, forget the SUV, cut needless roadside lighting, forget about personal consumer air travel, wrap up more and stop bitcoin mining. Think like … great grandparents. Think ‘paper bag’ and lessen off from ultra convenience.
Maybe we should all have pedal cars, gets ya fit, but of course there would always be the swanky git with extra chrome and a personalised reg …. on his pedal car. We would have to have two and three car families, we could only get one person in!
Its quite bizarre, we hear on the news of dire climate predictions and yet the next news item laments a hardly perceptible drop in Economic Growth or wages will not rise as much as we’d like them. This mindset will only be changed when its a last minute too late backs to the wall situation. Human nature ….
It used to be said in the west that we are becoming an increasingly classless society, I find that to be totally untrue, we are as stratified as ever, from what I see theres very little interaction between the disadvantaged and those well heeled. We mingle and shop among each other but there it seems to end.
… Oh yeah and I just realised why trump is so adamant for his Border Wall, I assumed it was that he really does concur with Climate Change, then just now I’ve realised its possibly because the Israelis are wall obsessed … n Net will have whispered in trumps ear re this method and so trump takes it all on board. The Palestinians have a right to stay on their land, to live and breath as others, they are NOT an underclass. I don’t like bully tactics. trumps idiocy is demonstrated with the move to Jeruselam for the Embassy, as usual he is a destructive, simplistic non-understanding embarrassment. The boy that can barely read and has ridden on his fathers wealth liking to thrust a stick into the hornets nest.
Perhaps theres a glimmer of hope, as always looking to score points and milk his public image perhaps he’ll amaze us all and do a complete about-turn on Climate Change, suddenly announcing that He and only He was able to see this and has come up with a great (that bloody word) idea !!
We read from the link below that the post of White House Office of Science and Technology Policy has at long last had someone appointed to lead them, Kelvin Droegemeier. That name Kelvin … how appropriate for Global Warming !! Wouldn’t be suprised if having that name of Kelvin was the reason subliminal or not for being chosen? No, trump wouldn’t know the connection. What will he do, I can’t see what he can do in the face of arrogant ignoramuses.
