You have no credible source for arson being the reason for the Australian wildfires. It's bunk.
You'll have to define credible source. Snopes? Infowars? Look for the baseline of inadvertent and deliberate human-caused fires historically. I've seen it but I can't be bothered to find it again.*

There won't be an ice age any time soon:
Logic would dictate that infrastructure be retooled for extremes of heat/cold air pressure excursions and EMF.

The most that any one person could do on their own would be to grow acres of hemp for the seed oil and then decoricate the stalks and use the hurds to make hempcrete. Atmospheric CO2 fixed with hydrated lime on an annual basis. The fiber becomes particle board or canvas and the seed oil used for paint, possibly paint-on self-nano-assembling solar panels.

Bamboo has it's place as well. Bamboo bicycle frame with hemp tape joins

If you have a house and a bicycle, anything else is stealing the childhoods of un-aborted babies.

Just looking at the last 5 ice ages our next one will be at least 1,000 years from now with a low probability, 4,000 years being likely and definitely by 7,000 years.
Let me define "not any time soon" - not in the next several million years, at least. The natural carbon sequestration process (weathering) takes a long time. If natural grasslands come back, then we could get back below 350ppm quickly.

Here's what the radical Texans are doing:

Question: why are construction projects doing their work AT NIGHT in Arizona?

I call shenanigans. Interglacials, such as we are in right now, are 1/10th the length of glacials.

Ice age - Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_ages
The current geological period, the Quaternary, which began about 2.6 million years ago and extends into the present, is marked by warm and cold episodes, cold phases called glacials (Quaternary ice age) lasting about 100,000 years, and which are then interrupted by the warmer interglacials which lasted about 10,000-15,000 years.

Why not hemplands?

Now I will watch the video.

edit:
The vehicle-to-grid vs vehicle-to-home discussion is interesting.

Texas' third Coast is out of the tidal power game, Alaska has the fjords.

The vintage gas pump converted to a charge point is neat.

Austin is interesting, but Texas also has Boca Chica[SpaceX].

Grasslands are a natural environment and when grazed, they pump carbon into the soil. Nothing grazes on hemp - though it is a useful material.

In 20 minutes you posted four videos with II[calculate]C 46 minutes of run time.
Pick the one you find most persuasive pleez.

edit:
Scott Adams touches on it, among other topics, at Episode 783 Scott Adams: #Loserthink Opinions on Iran, Google Shenanigans, Free Money, Bad Liars

Paraphrased, setting aside any arson, nothing the [bakka] Australian government could have done would make any difference as they are the victim of China.

What's your source on that?
Just remember you post something I'm going to read it and use it to eat you alive. I don't want to hear you cry like aero head.

He says the suns output between solar maximum and minimum is 0.1% difference, that's straight from aero heads favorite 1996 study that's been debunked for apparent casual, non scienific observations of one specific wavelength of UV and ignoring the entire sublight speed components of solar output.
The first believer to bring up orbital eccentricity. Brave man he could be stoned to death by the other believers for that.
Dude said a 200km wide asteroid killed the dinosaurs?
If a 200km rock hits the earth everything bigger than 995 cells dies.
Try to sell the Micheal mann hocky stick graph as being credible... funny because Mann was sued for fraud over this.
Then says we were going into an ice age until the late 20th warm up.
I seem to remember all the believers, neil, reddevil aero head all going crazy saying that the 1970s ice age scare was fake, made up, no one of scientific merit was saying that. But this guy with his temperature chart is saying that we were going into another ice age.
Neils "creditable" man made global warming promoter is claiming we were going into an ice age... to the church of climate change that's Blasphemy.
I dont think neil watched this video all the way through.

NeilB wants capitalization. aerohead is alloneword.

I watched the one on Austin (pretty good), but not the six non-video links. Scott You-know-who says if there are 10 reasons, [likely] none of them are good.

Soil Carbon sounds interesting.

I like you oil pan, which is why I'd like less of the ad hominems. aerohead is a good person, even if we disagree with things.
