A–hem:before I break for dinner, again, and we continue this little part two of “has technology made you happier?” Please think on this question for a moment or so. http://
There is one of the biggest changes, in the planet itself, affecting all of the oceans, all of the life and our lives and every single bit of weather , and in fact, the future itself of the planet, and that is directly related to technology. Of course, we are talking about what you like to call “global warming”, and what I like to call “world climate change.”http://
However you feel about “world climate change,” there is one thing you have to admit. Without all the industrial technology, that has actually formed (some people do believe it is the fifth ice age, coming, instead) what we call world climate change, we probably would be having close to the same weather on the planet, give or take a little, that we’ve had for a long long time. http://
as it is, global industrial technology is completely altering the planet itself and the whole ecosystem. There’s no way we can ignore it. Of course, we’d like to, because it is overwhelmingly THE END of our planets normal ongoing life. There is no way it will ever go back wards, stay the same, or avoid destroying the planet.
whatever is going to happen to the future of mankind, it will never be the same again. For one thing, when all the ice, and glaciers, and poles all melt, and flow into the ocean, any lower land , anywhere, especially any beaches, coastlines, harbors, inlets from the ocean, and islands are either going to be flooded periodically, or permanently made to disappear under saltwater forever. And it’s doing that already. http:// http://
you can expect complete chaos and disruption of the following things; people who live on coastlines, near the ocean, or on islands, will lose all their land and have to move inland. That also is already happening in the Tahitian islands. There hurricanes their are so bad, they can no longer live there anymore.
If I were really smart, I would buy land in the state of Nebraska; it is smack dab in the middle of the United States. http://
and of course the thing that everybody is complaining about, but trying to ignore the source of, is the EXTREME Weather itself; Washington DC with tremendous blizzards during the winter. States that are completely snowbound, frozen, more and more and worse and worse. Areas that were warm, becoming outlandishly hot, blistering, and turned into desert areas.
But of course, you already know all about that. Count one, for technology, it is winning.http://
the things that we are already seeing, like the high price of food (because production of crops and meet, is becoming harder and harder with the bad weather) will continue to get worse, until it’s very likely it will whittle down the population everywhere.
The very poorest countries will probably all starve to death by the millions. Unless they can figure something out, to get out of there to a more fertile place, yes it’s going to happen. http:// http://
of course we will have tremendous social and behavioral chaos, panic, and out right lease on tremendous crime. The governments will not be able to do much about stopping it, except to kill the people involved.food is definitely going to be one of the first things to go, and probably never come back in any sort of volume.
We already know that, because most of the oceans have been fished completely dry, of most kinds of popular fish, that people use to eat.
Nobody in the South would ever have guessed, they would see the day when, cat Fish would be sold in the meat department of a supermarket.Cat Fish is considered “poor people’s food”in the South, because they can always go out and catch it when they didn’t have anything else to eat. Otherwise, nobody ate it very often.
CatFish is not considered flavorful in any way.it used to be right up there with hunting possum and squirrel for dinner.you have to be pretty hungry to eat a squirrel. http://
but let’s continue on this subject, because this is definitely part of “has technology made you happier?” I don’t think any of us are going to be happy with technology, industrial worldwide technology, in the future. http://
All of us are ignoring the subject, because we don’t want to think about billions of people starving to death, going without water, being drowned or having to move in land from coastlines and islands (there goes Florida for sure)
even here in Oregon, the weather over 30 or 40 years, or more has changed so drastically, I didn’t even recognize it when I came home finally.Eugene Oregon, and Lane County, which used to be a hotbed of wonderful gardens, food, fruit trees, orchards, and fantastic agricultural excess, has gone right into the proverbial outhouse. http://
I talked to an older person, who’s a native here, about the weather. She said “yes, we used to have wonderful gardens here, and grow food, produce, fruit trees and orchards. We used to have tons and tons of rain, and hot hot summers. Now what do we have? Fog and overcast skies most of the time.no sun.” http:// http://
All the summers are unpredictable. In the spring, the fruit trees put their blossoms out, and heavy storms come along, and destroy everything. Goodbye fruit on fruit trees!this is drastic news, because Oregon is basically or was, an agricultural state. And the weather was good for it. But that is all gone.
Now, if you come back to your native Oregon, and try to grow produce gardens, or fruit trees, or even the native blueberry bush, forget it.you better get a greenhouse, and grow everything in that with grow lights. Or else take up mushroom growing, and do it in the house. Start thinking about hydroponics. Start thinking about something completely different that you could eat, that doesn’t have to be grown in the horrible weather that Oregon now has.
Oregon no longer has tons and tons of rain. In comparison, it’s practically dry. You cannot use the moisture out of all the overcast skies, that you have to look out at 24 hours a day 365 days a year. And Summers are often not much better.
I have had recently, such a damp and cold July, that all of my meager garden produce had mold. That’s when I gave up. If it starts getting where it’s actually cold and damp in July, you know you’re probably in the North Pole.and cold wet, icy, hail, snow far into May, does not help any. Forget about the blossoms on the trees. Forget about the trees! The weather that belonged in wintertime, is now in spring and summer. Talk about a BUMMER!! http://
and if you have experience in California,even in Northern California, it has gotten endlessly hotter and dryer.Napa Valley has had such bad weather, storms and floods, major winemakers have had disastrous wine crops. The one thing all this bad weather has in common, it is all BAD, BAD, BAD. http:// http:// http://
it does not take much imagination to note that the rest of the world, other countries, are all suffering from extremely EXTREME Weather. Cold areas get colder, hot and dry areas get hotter and dryer, until they are useless to live in in the future.
And the worst thing of all, it’s already obvious there’s not going to be very much FOOD being grown. Tremendously bad weather, will hit you in the breadbox. And it’s only just started.unless you manage to grow absolutely everything, almost, in a greenhouse, with appropriate heat or cold, forget about GAINING WEIGHT. you won’t need weight watchers anymore. http://
many of us who have not bothered to have children, don’t feel so bad now. Actually, some of us have been so callous as to breathe a sigh of relief.
I may sound ridiculously hysterical, but I don’t think I am. I believe that I am being very CAUTIOUS and OPTIMISTIC. I haven’t brought up many subjects like “new world war”, “invasions,” “political chaos”, “societal chaos and the downfall of civilization as we know it.”and also, “continuing DEAD OCEAN AREAS”;”the increasing DEATHS of all ocean-animal life, which could easily bring about the demise of oxygen on the planet.”
you might be able to survive with less food; less water; in warlike times; and without much society. But you are not going to be able to survive on this planet, without all the OXYGEN supplied by all the oceans on the planet. http://
Never mind the rain forests, which also supply a great deal of it; they are all being chopped down as we speak.if you think I’m being pessimistic, you won’t have to wait very long, I’m afraid, because we’ll start to see some pretty much more extreme symptoms, even before the next 10 or 20 years are up.the characteristics of “world climate change” had been speeding up faster and faster, at a much more accelerated rate, than anyone predicted.
I guess you’re going to have to enjoy your environmentaly clean Prius now: it’s very cute and pretty, and green. But it’s not going to help you find future water, food, land to live on, shelter from all the hideous weather coming up, and your own private armies to protect you from the upcoming world wars, and invasions of countries. and it’s also not going to protect you from a lot of global hysteria.
who would ever have guessed that human beings, would http:// technologize industry so much, they would create “black” or “brown air; mine the very land so that the whole ground-structures of China would initiate huge earthquakes, killing thousands;
create a whole Valley in China, where there no longer exists any bees, and human beings have to fertilize the blossoms, to get fruit, every year painstakingly; and in the United States and much of the rest of the world, bees themselves have become sick, dying, and completely dissappearing, due to pesticides, and over-commercialization-stresses. http:// http://
there are very few crops that can pollinate themselves; some types of wheat can do it, by means of the wind.but most of the produce and fruit in the world, including United States, needs bees to pollinate them! Otherwise, we don’t get any FOOD! (This seems to be an ongoing subject, I’m sure you notice.)
at this point, it’s pretty easy to ask yourself, in the future and in the present moment, “has technology made you happier?” You would be better off asking yourself, “has industrial technology given mankind future extinction?”and you can ask yourself at the same time, an important question,” has industrial technology and pollution, doomed the planet Earth to extinction?” http://
either way, if human beings manage to kill the planet, BINGO!– Two-for-One! we both vanish from the universe! Ta-Dah!!http://
Kind of similar to “Escape From Planet of the Apes”,(? I’m not sure which one it was,) where the future they are trying to avoid, is total annihilation of the planet by a superduper atomic bomb.
WHY does this happen, even in a movie?because, dear reader, Homo sapiens is very flawed; it is a species that is overwhelmingly self-destructive.it’s only an ape with a very large braincase, and all the rest of the simians- beastial vices.so don’t say, “this can absolutely not happen! This is stupid, this person is nuts,, and nobody destroys a whole planet!we’re too smart to do that!” http://
Yes, we are very very smart, intelligent chimpanzees, but we are doing it anyway. “once an animal, always an animal.”
but here in Eugene Oregon, we regard world climate change this way: “APRIL. FOOLS! WE FOOLED YOU! There’s no and of the world; there’s no WORLD CLIMATE CHANGE!
It’s all a big FARCE! April fools, ha ha ha ha! This was the biggest joke of all; there is no world climate change, or global warming, we’re just having a really bad 10 or 20 or 30 or 40 or 50 years of El Niño, or La Niña, weather and that’s all it is. http://
So go back to your kids, and your family, and your Playboy magazine, and life magazine, and Reader’s Digest; it’s all a big joke, we were just kidding around all this time!
There is no world climate change, or global warming; it was just a bunch of we scientists, bored out of our gourds, and we had to come up with something spooky and scary.,because very large asteroids don’t hit the earth very often (and Russia is not counted as “the earth”.) http://
So the next time you open a huge monster factory in China, and use lots of Chinese for slaves and slave wages, and slave conditions, don’t worry about it. It’s not going to cause GLOBAL WARMING. It’s not going to do anything at all, except bug Lincoln out of his mind, because he didn’t approve of slavery. And they killed him for that anyhow, in revenge.
.just remember the old adage “nobody hates equality like an elected official.”,
congratulations, there is no global warming, there is no world climate change. We might have a teensy-weensy tiny little fifth Ice Age, but that’s no big one. Not at all! All it does, is melt the poles a little, and firm up the ocean. http://
and as far as that stuff about “no more fish in the ocean”, you can always find a bunch of very small skinny Tilalpia, or farm grown salmon. and if that doesn’t hold you over, they’ve got tons and tons of growing and multiplying pythons in the Florida Everglades now.
Yummy yummy.Texans are not the only ones who have snake for lunch.
and in this article, we really have to conclude that technology is all for the best, and of course it’s going to make you happy! How could you not be?(so what’s a little surrogate between friends, anyway?)
Sincerely, and happy April Fools’ Day, to you and all, and all the bees, sincerely once again, in Eugene Oregon, Sandramiunadotty.– – from Lane County, the garden place of the United States (when there is actually any Sun here.) http://
