Been away too long. This thread has been pretty interesting in the past two or three weeks, I see.

How the world will end. And it has nothing to do with man made global mass hysteria.

https://youtu.be/p4d7naDAsKU

In 20 or 30 years man made global warming will be laughed at as hard if not harder than the satanic day care nonsense we had in the 1980s.
(Because remember the hole in the ozone was supposed to kill us all by now)

In the early 80s a guy wrote a book about how he had thousands of satanic followers and he disbanded to spread them through the country, talked about how their cause required blood sacrifice of childern bla bla, bla. At the same time the fastest growing industry in the US was a relatively new one, it was the day care industry.
It wasn't too hard to figure out that obviously these day care startups were being started by the satanic followers.
And everyone lost their freaking minds.

Turns out the guy completely made up everything in his book and there was nothing to worry about, just like the hole in the ozone.
Pretty much like most of what you hear about global warming, they find what they need to find, jump to baseless conclusions or just flat out make it up.

Regardless of warmer or not warmer the problem of impending fossil fuel depletion is very real and even more pressing.

The bicycle can be considered the greatest invention. Hour long presentation about population but a good watch. Starting at 33:00 shows the importance of a bicycle. Ebikes in areas with electricity amplify the effectiveness and bring it very close to the utility of a motorbike.
