If science is the end-all-be-all for you, then this thread is probably not going to be your cup of tea; nevertheless, I invite you to stick around
and challenge yourself with the ideas that I hope might emerge from a civil dialogue on this topic. The concepts of civility and
dialogue appear to be alien to the bulk of the polarized ATS community.
Up until yesterday, I believed that climate change was purely natural. I believed that the scientific evidence favoring man-made climate change was
doctored by politically motivated agents of various governments, corporations, hippies, soccer-mom book clubs, etc.
I still think the publicly flaunted "scientific" data is skewed...however, that does not eliminate the probability that climate disasters are, in one
form or another, man-made.
"I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we
talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness."--Max Planck
The citation above are the words of the Nobel prize winning theoretical physicist Max Planck, who gave us the equation necessary to quantize energy.
In many ways, he can be regarded as the
father of quantum mechanics.
...Soooo, what if these climate disasters are coming from our collective attitudes towards ourselves and each other? What if we regard ourselves with
too high a nobility, while taking our neighbors for granted? What if we are abdicating our personal responsibility of self-rule by demanding
governments to take action on our behalf, in all areas of life?
We see the disasters in other areas of reality: Earthquakes, wars, famines (let me know if this sounds familiar), mass shootings, riots, the list goes
on and on...
I hope Gretta and her handlers are successful in creating a global legal codex based on carbon emissions. I hope humans successfully drop ocean
temperatures by 2 degrees (or whatever they arbitrarily think it should be). I hope every single demand of the Paris Accord is satisfied.....
...Maybe then we'll notice that despite these changes, the disasters will only increase in intensity and frequency. Our ludicrous demands for external
change without the necessary internal--individualistic
--change will only cause the acceleration of social decay.
Climate disasters are a symptom of modern degeneracy. Its a cycle that can be tracked throughout history. The science is only secondary to the
conscious state of the world.
Maybe the world will find stability if we each first establish stability within ourselves. If we fail at this, then global stability will be restored
for us, only after natural disasters and war have put us back in our place.
