Civilization Is Doomed From “Climate Change” Or Something
But not immediately. It “could” happen sometime in the future
(Huffington Post) Civilisation is almost inevitably doomed, a Nasa-funded study has found.
Human society is founded on a level of economic and environmental stability which almost certainly cannot be sustained, it said.
The study used simplified models of civilisation designed to experiment with the balance of resources and climate that creates stability – or not – in our world.
These theoretical models – designed to extrapolate from simple principles the future of our industrialised world – ran into almost intractable problems.
Almost any model “closely reflecting the reality of the world today… we find that collapse is difficult to avoid”, the report said.
I love this quote from the report
“The fall of the Roman Empire, and the equally (if not more) advanced Han, Mauryan, and Gupta Empires, as well as so many advanced Mesopotamian Empires, are all testimony to the fact that advanced, sophisticated, complex, and creative civilizations can be both fragile and impermanent.”
The Roman Empire fell as the Earth’s climate moved into a cool period. Weird. And none of those civilizations had the benefit of modern technology as we do now. But, then, this is simply about scaring people that something might happen in the future because of tiny, barely noticeable temperature increase, despite 17+ years of a statistically insignificant temperature rise, and only a 1.4F increase since 1850.
But, hey, what else is NASA supposed to do since they aren’t bothering with the “space” part of their name?

I never did get around to discussing the recent Australian elections, where Labor lost control and the Liberal Party won.
OK, the article discusses “urban green spaces,” and Turfgrass but, the same principles apply to that lawn you slave away
I blame Warmists for taking unnecessary fossil fueled flights to attend conferences that blame people taking unnecessary fossil fueled flights
