In the last couple weeks I've read several books, a couple of them concerning the changing climate, environment, speciation removation, and other factors of threat to our comfort and status and survival on the earth. (such trivia compared to gasoline prices).
On title, "Field Notes from Catastrophe".
The second (which I read first, not that that makes any difference to you) "The Sixth Extinction".
The highest level scientific consensus of mutli-national research and study concludes that things are heating up, melting down, thus to rise up (sea levels) and dry up (water resources which significantly derive from glacial meltwaters) and other such trivial annoyances.
The "Conservative" (truly an environmental-antonym) stance is that since there's question to what extent human activity (such as emissions) is involved, the probability is that the "Lib-tard" are using this data as "scare-tactic" to push through legislation to allow the Obama administration to become the regimentation and dictatorship of private energy enterprise and policy.
Even if that be involved, give that "natural climatic variation" is taking place -- and that what man is doing, though not absolutely causal is surely contrbutant addend . . . . . . then perhaps it's a damned good thing if the government does provide a "policy and procedure check and balance" on the private sector. However the "Right" should do some research into the extent to which even the major conventional energy corporations are investing in alternatives and renewables R&D -- and even the military implementing these systems.
The evidence of climate change is undeniable.
The potential for disruption (or even devastation) of human existence is significant.
The arctic freezer-compartment isn't working the way it used to.
The glaciers are retreating almost everywhere.
Some "land-based" ice sheets are threatening to add their content to the oceanic levels of height and detract their freshwater input from the salinity of the oceans (with a worst-case scenario of shutting down the thermo-halene "conveyor")
Ohmygod!! What shall we do??
We must overturn Roe v. Wade. And stone (after the delivery) anyone involved in seeking abortion illegally.
We must reinstate school prayer, but only Christian . . . . . .but should we allow Cathlic .. . . jew .. . ... . ... . . . . .
We must shut down the whole Internet which disseminates Satanic knowledge (which is anything other than "knowing Jesus")
We perhaps should also instate "Christian Perdition" -- women veiled and not allowed out without male family-member escort.
We will, of course, have to impeach Obama. How obvious his Anti-Christic intentions for man to evade the punishment for sin via "health care" provided by that house of Satan known as the secular Federal Government.
We must save the world from its environmental-dynamical demise!!! We must kneel and pray.
Heavenly Father, make of us a medieval miracle of mania so that we can solve the problem of forest fires and droughts and storm intensification and invasive species (soon to include other ethnicities even here -- already elsewhere) and . . . . . . . . . . .
At least I'm saved. I've screwed energy saving light bulbs into every socket in my residence. And through the last couple months I read (and wrote a couple books concerning) the entire Bible, Old and New cover-to-cover.
If you're imaginative enough, you can find "prophecy" for everything now going on therein.
If you're unimaginative enough, you'd probably think you could find solutions for the present environmental problems in, perhaps, Psalms . . . .
