Australian cities predicted to become uninhabitable.
At one time not too long ago some of us were saying "stop the burning of fossil fuels or we are on the road to extinction", well that time has passed, corrupt governments & the majority of people failed to act responsibly, so now, it is too late to stop anthropogenic global warming & climate change!!!
Scientists have predicted & warned that anthropogenic global warming & climate change will : make Australian cities uninhabitable, will change the natural environment and start killing off many animal species, will cause droughts, floods, crop failures, heatwaves, more cyclones, severe storms, extreme cold, rising seas & more Pandemics.
Right now we are fighting the coronavirus outbreak & Pandemic, make no mistake, THIS IS A SURVIVAL SITUATION, and people need to face this fact & take it seriously!!! Someone may develop a vaccine for the coronavirus, but until they do, this virus poses a very great threat to all ages, & so long as this virus exists somewhere in the world, then we are all under a constant threat that it will resurface again.
Then there are the Pandemics that have yet to strike, & all the time anthropogenic global warming & climate change are worsening, accelerating. What was once a fight to avoid, has now become a fight to adapt & survive for as long as we can. NO corrupt government is going to stop the burning of fossil fuels completely, & that is what it would take to seriously slow the effects of global warming. So we need to prepare for what is coming, we need to teach our children & grandchildren how to survive, & we need if possible, a place where they can best survive, & that place will NOT be found in the city!
Now I know that a lot of intelligent people have said that society will not collapse in the near future, that the government will not let that happen, that the military will step in & save the day. But just look at the way the general public are handling (or not handling!) these present Pandemic conditions. Panic buying, violence in supermarkets, attacking medical staff, infecting people deliberately, to say nothing of the government's incompetence in allowing passengers to leave the stricken cruise ships. In America they are arming themselves & protesting the lockdown & the social distancing, without which many more would have died. We have large numbers of Australians flouting to rules on social distancing & in so doing they are a threat to thousands of people trying to do the right thing. Do you seriously think that if this got any worse that the government could remain in control? Look at society as it is now, it has changed. People are literally fighting each other in supermarkets over toilet rolls!!!
When the government restarts the economy, which it has prioritised over the welfare of the people, the pollution levels will rise above what it was before the pandemic, carbon emissions will soar through the roof accelerating anthropogenic global warming & climate change. Imagine what would happen if we have another wave of the coronavirus due to the lifting of restrictions? Imagine what will happen if there is another pandemic on top of this one. Regardless, we are talking about time, we are talking about WHEN not IF !!! A lot of people have died due to this Pandemic, people worldwide have already died from global warming & climate change & a lot more people are going to die from now on. NOW is the time to get your priorities right, NOW is the time to be thinking of survival. That money in the bank will be worthless if society collapses, & if you think that the worst that can happen is running out of toilet paper, then think again!
Take care everyone & stay safe.
