All the hubbub about doing something to change the weather in order to save the planet from some dire event is a total waste of time, effort and money….because an even greater threat is much more likely to happen before the earth’s temperature rises even 3 degrees Fahrenheit on a permanent basis.
Considering the fact that our whole world is just a crust on a huge ball of molten magma which from time to time penetrates that thin surface in a very explosive manner….you know: volcanoes. A few of these in (or on) the world, including some massive earthquakes to boot, and the consequences to humanity and all forms of life will be horrendous. Isn’t it silly that some folks are so concerned about the climate changing that they are willing to punish our economic well being to joust against windmills in the unproven idea that the world is getting hotter and hotter.
What if one of those volcanoes erupts through a Polar Ice Cap? Perhaps then we’ll see the oceans rise a foot or two and the Polar Bear population thinned out….but again, not due to global warming.
And guess what? There isn’t any more humans can do about that scenario than changing the weather, but if you want to try, I am working on developing a massive escape valve to penetrate the earth’s crust in order to prevent volcanic eruptions. I just need a grant of a dozen or so millions from the government….and your donations will be gladly accepted.
P.S. You may also want to worry about massive Solar Flare activity which could put us back to the Stone Age.
