“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.”

― H.L. Mencken

Just earlier in the 70s they were worried about global cooling. Climate concern has been around even longer than that too.

I don't know what to think though, now that I can feel pressure changes for some reason it seems like we're getting hit with more frequent storms more often in my area, but it could just be whatever is wrong with me getting worse.

Imo climate change is proven, but mankind causing the changes or mankind causing the C02 or C02 being harmful are all up for debate. I think we're just riding solar cycles or something.

It started out as global warming, then they changed it's name to climate change. I'm not sure why they changed it. Maybe Al Gore ruined global warming?

They change it every decade or so because people start to catch on.

80's was the new ice age

90's was acid rain

00's was holes in the ozone and global warming

10s was climate change

Those bitches charged me a $25 fine for trying to recycle a dirty paper plate. I'm terrified of it now.

What year does that article say the climate change is going to start?

At least 1989 since they refer to the concept as a trend.

And since the experts stated we'd all be under water by Y2K, it had to start a while before.

I am starting to feel suspicious of these "experts". Maybe they just don't actually KNOW?

this is precisely why they want to exterminate/vaccinate us, cuz there are way too many people on the planet and we cant all live in new jersey.

There aren't "too many".

There are, however, "too many to their liking"

It does not say when the countries will be wiped out.
