QUESTION: What are we going to do against climate change?

ANSWER: This is not really our first climate change nor our first interglacial. We’ve been through many warming and cooling cycles some much more intense than the one we have now. And we’re still here and the planet is still here and the ocean is still here and the fish are still here. Where is the historical record that interglacial temperature dynamics destroy life on earth and the planet itself.

Before you buy into this fearmongering activism take the time to review our climate history in the post linked below.

EXCERPT: THE HUMAN ADVANCE FROM THE ANIMALS OF THE PALEOLITHIC ERA TO THE FARMERS OF THE NEOLITHIC ERA TO THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION OF THE MODERN ERA AND THE RAPID ADVANCE IN HUMAN TECHNOLOGY AND HUMAN POPULATION HAS CREATED (1) THE IDEA THAT WE ARE OR OUGHT TO BE IN CONTROL OF NATURE, AND (2) THE INNER FEAR THAT WE ARE NOT IN CONTROL WITH A FEAR OF THE FUTURE IN THE SENSE OF ADVANCING INTO AN ERA OF THE UNKNOWN. THIS ODDITY IS BEST UNDERSTOOD AS A CREATION OF THE BREVITY OF OUR CIVILIZED STATE. OF THE 200,000 YEAR HISTORY OF US MODERN HUMANS, WE WERE CANNIABALISTIC PALEOLITHIC ANIMALS FOR THE FIRST 192000 YEARS WITH HUMAN CIVILIZATION AND OUR CIVILIZED STATUS A VERY RECENT INNOVATION IN THE LAST 8,000 YEARS.

REPEAT: OUR 200,000 YEAR HISTORY CONSISTS OF 192,000 YEARS {96%} AS PALEOLITHIC ANIMALS AND THE LAST 8,000 YEARS {4%} AS THE CIVILIZED HUMANS THAT WE ARE TODAY.

IT WILL TAKE US SOME TIME FOR OUR CIVILIZED STATE TO MATURE AND FOR US TO FULLY GRASP AND MANAGE OUR NEW STATE OF EXISTENCE. IN THE MEANTIME WE ARE STILL IN AWE OF OUR NEW CIVILIZATION AND NOT SURE WHAT TO MAKE OF IT SUCH THAT OUR IMAGINATION RUNS WILD AND CREATES THINGS LIKE THE ANTHROPOCENE WITH THE HUMANS IN CHARGE OF NATURE, IN CHARGE OF THE OCEAN, IN CHARGE OF THE PLANET, AND IN CHARGE OF THE CLIMATE. AS OUR CIVILIZED STATE MATURES WE WILL UNDERSTAND IT BETTER AND PERHAPS WE WILL BE ABLE TO SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY.
