The Collapse Happy Statistical Model
No matter which resource, there’s 3 views on profitable extractive reserves,
- the don’t worry, be happy gang
- the worry, be happy gang
- the worry, don’t be happy gang
As you can see, sometimes the 2 be happy gangs can be 66% of the total, worried or not. Other times the worry, be happy gang divides itself with 50% defecting to the happy camp, and 50% to the don’t be happy gang. This is why we can’t solve exploitive resource extraction.
Women and children are resources to between 33% and 66% of men. You may regard this statement as insane, which if true, doesn’t matter because you only comprise the 33%-66% of the opposing population. The same applies to climate.
This simple statistical model is not meant to be accurate, or sane, it’s meant to instruct you why we can’t get our shit together on anything, which means we are doomed, unless we redefine money and taxation, but which fails under the same model. (Note to self: insert usual carbon currency unification rant here, or not)
The NOAA’s State Of The Climate 2016 has just been released. Be sure to check out page 17 of the Executive Summary showing the near record Arctic ozone loss. This is what happens when the upper atmosphere cools while the lower atmosphere warms.
Besotted: I love SOTT monthly videos, the music is great, they don’t dwell too much on any one scene, and they include meteors and animal attacks. Plus, nobody can scare you as much as Christians.
