Ready for Plan B?
I know that it’s politically incorrect to be worried sick about global warming, to feel guilty about how much we humans are contributing to climate change and to support every boondoggle that’s proffered as a solution (the costlier the better) to assuage one’s guilt, but alas my conscience is clear and I continue to consume and enjoy. However, what if in a few years the Al Gores of the world are disparaged and scientists conclude the planet is cooling off? Now that would be something to really worry about.
Will we be prepared? Do we have a plan in reserve to encourage people to fly nonstop, be gas-guzzlers and build huge energydemanding houses with massive carbon footprints?
Is anyone thinking about how to manufacture citrus tree warmers? Should everything possible be stored in aerosol cans? Would we have the foresight to demand that cattlemen make sure their cows reproduce at top capacity, thus helping spread methane gas to hasten the warming? We have to stay on top of the situation.
