The grift may end but the climate will continue to change.

Evidence That We Live In An Ice Age Termination Event!

This says the methane level is rising, but only half the increase can be attributed to humankind. So we could contort ourselves in knots and still be at the mercy of the environment.

Else, the Beaufort Gyre of course.

The Beaufort gyre or a VEI 8 volcanic eruption will make people wish the global warming they were being terrorized with was real.

People seeking a Gaia religion will always find the next thing to center around. It will never go away, only change forms.

https://www.britannica.com › science › homeostasis
Homeostasis | Definition, Function, Examples, & Facts
Homeostasis, any self-regulating process by which biological systems tend to maintain stability. The stability attained represents a dynamic equilibrium, in which continuous change occurs yet relatively uniform conditions prevail. If homeostasis is successful, life continues; if unsuccessful, disaster or death
Is the Earth a biological system? It is to me.

IOW what goes round comes around.

I'm starting to like the reporting from The Hill

NORD STREAM: Tucker Carlson Was RIGHT About Pipeline Explosion, WaPo Admits? | Robby & Brie

Fair and balanced, thorough -- but they work through all the political implications, but never once mention it was the biggest single release of methane gas into the Earth's environment since ever.

Apparently the calculus was that it would be the biggest disaster, but still just a rounding error in the bigger picture.

Oh well, anyway....

That's the name sake of the thread. I called it because 2 global warming reports came out, not a peep from the media, numerous "global warming" themed posts that I troll/follow hadn't been updated in months. As the left found a new fad religion and left global warming next to the trash like they were done with it but hadn't thrown because of sentimental value.

I mean, Gaia's fictional wrath on humanity in 12 years (now 6 or something, right) doesn't have to be the only reason to conserve resources and experiment with alternative ways of doing things. We could just pursue efficiency as an end unto itself; no mythology or doomsday prophecy required.
