BASICS: GLOBAL WARMING BRING IT ON | nationalsalvation.net

Here are "both sides" on global warming: One side says that bureaucrats must take over the world and control all production and all consumption to prevent a catastrophe. This discovery came, by some incredible coincidence, just as socialism, which wanted bureaucrats to control all production and consumption, was breathing its last as a serious idea.

Then there is the "other side." As usual, all the other side does is react to accepted Harvard to New England to Europe to Canadian opinion, the latest fashion in Political Correctness, where the Global Warming fad came from. So PC says one thing, so all the "other side" has to say is "It's not, either!"

With this, the Great Debate of the Intellectuals is complete. Business as usual.

And I have another point of view, as usual, which no one but the blog will talk about.

Over the next fifty years the globe is supposed to heat up and then the global freeze will set in. Oceans will rise. Africa will starve. Agriculture will be disrupted.

People keep talking about nature down on the farm. Actually our bread basket has to buy a completely newly-developed seed every few years for wheat so that wheat can stay ahead of the new diseases that pop up regularly. It is not NATURAL to have a whole world in which new diseases can be spread within weeks around the world, so every new wheat version of the potato blight that caused the Potato Famine is ALREADY a worldwide famine producer. We adjust to it once or twice a decade.

It is not entirely accidental that man developed in a million years that saw something like forty ice ages come and go. Our brain is a direct result of the fact that nature was simply changing to fast to allow evolution to allow us to survive.

One of the great phenomena of history was The Little Ice Age. History only discovered recently that there WAS a Little Ice Age. We came out of it, literally, I mean LITERALLY, on top of the world. Whites were challenged for hundreds of years and by the time we came out of it the world was literally ours. Nobody could stand up against a white race that had just faced a mortal challenge.

And a challenge, I might add, of which we had no warning and for which we had no technology.

What about growing food? We use agriculture for exactly the same reason we use oil. It's cheap. Oil will not be substituted out until it ceases to be cheap. Hydroponics and other methods will not be used t produce food until we get a disaster. See there, I finally did use the Peak Oil idea! It took me this long to absorb it, and now you know why I get so impatient when you don't absorb my ideas.

So Peak oil it is. And Peak Food it is, too. There has never been a WORD for this phenomenon, and whoever came up with it PLEASE claim it at last.

I mentioned before that there was - and I am NOT making fun of this term, I LOVE it! - a Peak Rubber Period just at the beginning of World War II. In the early twentieth century, the dependence of America on Southeast Asia for rubber was the Oil Crisis of the time. Edison and Ford both lost millions in an attempt to develop alternative sources of rubber.

The Peak Rubber Crisis did not occur until America got a kick in the ass from Japan. And Japan attacked us in the first place because we had created a Peak Oil situation for Japan. The world oil supply came from America, and Roosevelt cut off all oil from Japan. He got his war out of that. The Japan, occupying Southeast Asia, cut off rubber from the United States. There was a tire crisis you can see in a few old movies in 1942 and 1943. By the end of the war, artificial rubber had been Develo0ped to the point where, thought natural rubber was still better, the artificial stuff was still being used after the war.

I can barely remember how the newspaper was bound in artificial rubber and how brittle it was. I would go around the house waving my fists in the air and imitating my father, yelling, "Where's my damn paper!" Those were among the first words I ever learned.

Is natural rubber used for ANYTHING any more? Without the Peak Rubber Crisis, we might have a Peak Rubber AND a Peak Oil Crisis today. White people NEED crises. It is how we developed. It is how we improve.

Global warming? Bring it on!
