2017-08-02 - Why many people are naively optimistic about climate change:
http://www.npr.org/sections/13.7/2017/08/02/541095519/why-we-are-naively-optimistic-about-climate-change

Quote: "The dead zones spur the growth of oxygen-eating bacteria, making it impossible for fish to survive. Decomposing organic matter generates hydrogen sulfide, a highly poisonous gas that shuts down the nerves regulating breathing, killing in seconds even at low concentrations. Hydrogen sulfide played a key role in the most severe of all mass extinctions in Earth's past, when 97 percent of all life died 252 million years ago."

Note: We don't have any 70 years either. Anybody could drop dead or burn to death by tomorrow. The problem isn't far off into the future; it's rising all around us right now, a tidal wave of death. It's well past Wake-Up-Or-Die O'Clock...


Agreed. As to why people are so "naive", I have an explanation.  ;D

A long time ago and in a military academy far far away (USMA), I was a lowly plebe for a while. The upperclassmen had some very creative ways of insulting plebes. Plebes are otherwise known as fourth classmen (i.e. college freshmen). All those eggheads at the USMA hate to be called stupid, so the upperclassmen made sure they called us that often. The most creative way to do that is to arrange the back and forth dialog so that we had to insult ourselves.

It went like this:
Upperclassman: Mister, you are a wedge.
Plebe: Yes sir!
Upperclassman: Do you know what a wedge is?
Plebe: Yes sir!
Upperclassman: Mister what is a wedge?
Plebe: Sir, a wedge is the simplest tool!
Upperclassman: Post! (that means the plebe can now leave)
Plebe: Yes sir!

Agelbert thinks most people who are "naive" about climate change are part of the wedge family of Homo saps.

The sub-human group of wedge brains is over-represented in the fossil fuel, chemical, military, political and financial segments of the human population.


The wedges are in the driver's seat of the trajectory of human civilization (see below). 







 

EVERYONE at Zero Hedge is a WEDGE!
