About sixty five hundred years ago the Sahara was a green fertile land.. Then Dog did a climate change.. This is from the guy doing ocean core sampling..
Nah, let's fuck with it.
If we want to talk about global climate change, let's also talk about net global benefits
that could come from it too. Hopefully things will continue to warm up, giving us more arable land in the northern hemisphere where most of the land is anyway.
"More severe" weather? I'm not convinced. Maybe more severe for currently populated regions,
but not severe overall. People have short memories anyway and any "severe weather" they perceive in the present will feel worse than the past -- especially predating their birth. They'll adapt. We could use a great culling anyway.
And what about everyone else? Sinking low-lying islands and coast? Who cares? Immigrate somewhere else appropriate. Sub-Sahara Africa? Whatever. Since when did people ever give a shit about that region in any context?
Still, I wouldn't be happy if the playa turned into some humid shithole. Then again, that may be a (another) good reason to leave those counties in Nevada for somewhere else.
