And not to mention this is not just ‘numbers’ over possible human costs. This effects the whole world, all life in it, all food chains etc. The biggest problem we have is that the people that make their money from our modern dependance on CO2 producing energy, are now fully upto speed and invested in delaying actual beneficial action.
I don’t think the IPCC or climate scientists (in relation to the concensus around climate change being human led by modern day CO2 output) are able to make a clear enough message in all the white noise and counter-science these invested lobbies have, especialy in the usa which is the biggest country that would be able to make the right choices to safe guard the future. This is infact where most of the anti climate change science and lobbies are based, and no coincidence where much of the oil industry (and other CO2 producing industries) is based in the western world.
So with that scenario in mind, i was lucky to have foresight and have some knowledge and skills that might help me and my family to better survive in the likely Mad Max future we are sleep walking towards. It’s just an insurance policy, but even as a kid i could see i could have no faith in our corrupted governments (by big business) to plan anything longterm.
So i just plan to use pleanty of sun screen over the coming years, watch my vineyard develope nicely, use green energy and become as self sufficient as possible, and have ensured my property and lands are on high ground and defensible.
