What will happen if I ignore anthropogenic global warming & climate change?
Anthropogenic global warming & climate change are accelerating much faster than previously predicted, & the world is still burning fossil fuels. Scientists have predicted that global warming combined with the destruction of wildlife habitats is very likely going to cause more frequent & more sever Pandemics.
It is now too late to stop anthropogenic global warming, & with the continued burning of fossil fuels, it is highly likely that society could collapse within the next 50 years. If this happens, then we will experience teotwawki, & after that, possibly the beginning of our extinction period.
When society collapses, that will be the end of payed employment, the end of our national economy, for many, it will mean the end of life itself. In the cities there will be no food, no drinking water, no sewage, no electricity, & no security. Gangs will form; there will be a massive rise in crime with looting, home invasions, rape & murder. There is also likely to be cannibalism, as the only food will be human flesh.
Many people will obviously be trying to get out of the city, but unless they have the appropriate survival skills & the right sustainable equipment & tools, they are not likely to survive for very long in the bush.
Between now & when society collapses, life for many is going to change. People will die in heatwaves & other disasters & of course the further Pandemics that are coming from the destruction of wildlife habitats which will put us in closer contact with other species of animals. I know very little about the national economy, but I assume this will collapse with further disasters & Pandemics.
Is there any chance we can avoid the extinction of the human race?
If a majority of people were to rise up before the end of 2020 & sack our present corrupt to the core government & introduce a new non corrupt governing system, then we could stop the burning of fossil fuels & the destruction of our native forests & this may allow us to avoid our extinction. But bear in mind this is a global problem, one country alone cannot have much of an impact on global warming, but as Australia exports more coal than any other country in the world, we could make a significant difference to our climate.
Our only other chance of survival is if the collapse of society comes soon. If this stops the burning of fossil fuels, then those who have prepared (preppers) may stand a chance of surviving. Frankly, given that Australians are in general very apathetic, & given that the majority of people living in the cities are not willing to change their environmentally damaging lifestyles, I can’t see a majority of people doing anything to try & save humanity.
What can we do?
If you can, move out of the city as soon as possible & live off grid. Start preparing for what is coming. I think as things start to get bad in the cities, climate change protests will turn violent. Hangers on will take advantage of the situation & start a wave of destruction & looting. Living off grid you will need to be able to protect your gardens, your homes & your families. To do this you will need firearms. Raiders will have firearms, so you will have no choice but to be armed yourselves. The alternative is just not worth thinking about!
