Another excellent conversation my host, thank you for sharing.
Though I must say that your closing remark that people can only listen for so long does not apply to those of us who have no use or connection to television.
Your podcasts are far superior to anything that the TV had years ago when I disconnected it.
I must applaud you for defending the result of the last national election for its pathetic lack of alternatives.
Indeed there has been very little in the way of choice for a very long time now.
Your conversation touched upon Climate Change as did Too Much Magic as well.
I respect your views on the issue, though personally I blame an awful lot on the changes that have taken place in the changes in our Sun and the decimation that these have inflicted upon the Earth’s Magnetosphere:
Do we humans do very bad things to the atmosphere by the garbage that we burn in our internal combustion engines?
Does it have very bad ecological effects to our planet?
But an astrophysics professor I had long ago once taught us that “as goes the Sun, so goes the Earth”.
In any case, those who profit from carbon based fuels and the electricity they produce have acquired far too much power (profit) to ever be significantly altered in their ways.
Use less energy?
Count me in and I do a bang up job of doing exactly that, but people like me are not only few and far between, we are considered loonies by the Common American Idiots.
There is another element in the bizarre nature of the weather patterns that we have all been seeing for the last decade and that is direct interference by man, especially the military.
The military brass has long been aware that adverse weather conditions severely affect the abilities of any armed forces to conduct even the simplest acts of war.
World War was a prime example and it was during the second World War that the lesson was not only best learned but the absolute lust to do something about it first came into play.
There have been countless efforts, funding and scientific efforts put forth by militaries around the world to control the weather.
You do not really need an army at all if you can make it rain on your enemies homeland for forty days and forty nights.
Heck you can even bring in your own military as a relief effort afterwards and take over to the cheers of the survivors as the clouds all clear.
I do not know how far they have progressed in this ability but I know how much effort we put into it during my time of service.
Methinks they have made progress and perhaps, added to the problems.
In any case, well done and thank you once again.
I appreciate all the work you do to bring us these distractions from our toils and insights into the future.
