Let's put this in perspective: Earth goes through cycles of warming and cooling. They do impact the lifeforms, but don't wipe everything out.
Humans (hominids) have survived ice ages and warm periods several times.
How long do you reckon the powers that be have known this?
Who are you talking about as "powers that be?" Bush? He's still not convinced though he occasionally talks as if he is. The rest of the world
has been taking steps for quite awhile.
Since the 80s? No way. We found out in the 80s that there was a big problem, which means they've known since way before that. 70s? 60?
A number of theories, but none of the hard data (accurate measurements) came out until the 1980's or so. Scientists who warned of this were regarded
as kooks, although the scientific community was swift to buy into this because of changes in plants and animals. Many became activists, trying to
promote and teach recycling and lowering various emissions (flourocarbon and so forth) with indifferent success. We eventually did get a ban on
those, but society was slow to move because of the climate of distrust about science and scientists.
Progress was much swifter in countries where there was less distrust of science.
The Dark Rain code is a code hidden in a book that gives a date when positive feed back in global warming reaches crtitical mass and the
equator burns and the icecaps crumble (they dont melt, they crumble and huge icebergs get dumped in the ocean - visualize it!). The idea is that with
mathematical models advanced enough you can predict the outcome of chaos models (weather systems?) with a high degree of accuracy.
It sounds very doomsdayish, and you can offer scenarios, but you can't predict EXACTLY. The idea of a "code" that "predicts exactly" seems
But this code goes further. It also identifies government agencies who are involved in a) covering up the real seriousness of global warming
and b) preparing the way for a very small elite to live in like a new Eden when the climate collapse has taken care of like seven billion people.
There is some kind of cipher involved. Clues so far are in the ISBN (023000010X) which reduces to 5 and the fact that there are only five chapters -
the 5th letter of the alphabet is E right? For Eden?
How about B for Bogus?
First, the US is among the few world governments sticking their heads in the sand and singing "lalalalalalll I can't heeeeeeeeearrrr you!" about
global warming. The "governments do nothing so they can create an eden for an elite" assumes that the world is inhabited only by America and the
Bush administration. Second, the "inhabited by the elite" is an odd concept because governments and power structures change constantly. An
official who is "in" right now may be "out" in six months or a year (like Rumsfeld or several other recent examples.) Sometimes they may be VERY
out (completely ousted.)
If there was such a scenario, surely the officials dumped from the "A-list" would be shrieking about it to the skies. Wouldn't YOU yell if you
were a corrupt fatcat who'd suddenly been ousted by a rival and now weren't going to get into Eden? Wouldn't YOU start a huge stink to ruin their
It sounds very nonbalanced and speculative and American-centric. I would believe that the models can offer some scenarios like that (though we have
never seen "the equator burn" during temperature maximums) but these tend to be very extreme and assume humanity is helpless.
I beleive better of humans.
I do think we can do better if we throw Bush's cronies out. But America isn't the entire world and the picture is more complex than the book seems
