The debate about global warming has been an on going one, and I am of the mind that humans have greatly impacted our environment. Let's get real here, the Earth is a closed system. Seven point seven billion people is a huge number (7,700,000,000) and we are a having an impact on Mother Earth.
I'm not of the hippie mindset, even though in my youth, I looked up to their idealistic folly, but that is another post for another day.
(I deleted a reference to Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth and his forecasts) Well, the trouble with projections is that the future can't be predicted. The probability can be calculated, but not predicted. I digress, the global warming is happening and the weather is becoming more extreme. This year - hottest year on record, record number of new record high temperatures, once in a century hurricane in New England (Sandy), North Easter Nemo is dumping record amounts of snow, etc... I need to go back and watch the movie again, but somewhere in the movie he talks about the global warming will result in an increase in weather extremes. This is what I believe that we are seeing.
What happens when the agriculture starts to really fail? Last year's drought will continue if things don't change. When food prices rise past most people's ability to put food on the table for their kids, society will break down.
Perhaps this is the reason for the billion dollar food stores purchase by the government from Mountain House last year. Why do all the alphabet agencies need nearly 2 billion rounds of forty caliber hollow point bullets? DHS has bought 1.6 billion in the last 10 months. (links one two three )
Looks like the government is preparing for a storm - shouldn't you? Or do you think that the government would tell you the truth?
