Our English correspondent Seneca III weighs in on the climate
The Cosmos and Climate
by Seneca III
The Universe, even if only to the extent of the thirteen-billion-year time/distance limited horizons we can presently observe, is huge beyond our comprehension. It is deep, complicated, profoundly mysterious and interconnected in ways we do not yet understand… if we ever will.
That Extinction Rebellion and its various analogues should presume to tell us how it works on our cosmological microscale and that we are responsible for perfectly natural events smacks of the destructive knee-jerk response of simple-minded children.
We still do not know if solar activity and climate are constructive partners or destructive antagonists, for our collective life span is too short compared with that of Mother Sun.
Homo sapiens sapiens still has a long way to go to complete its evolution into Homo solaris and even further to Homo stellaris, but one wonders how those far-distant descendants of ours will look back and view the twitterings of these gullible drones so taken in by the great carbon tax scam.
Perhaps they will observe that within the miniscule compass of our here and now the dismal apocalyptic prophecies of these delusional fanatics was but the importunate chattering of frightened crickets facing their first winter in a far corner of a vast field, and that they too were time-limited. One can but hope for the latter.
Seneca III — in Middle England some thirteen billion years on from year zero, this 15th day of December, 2019.
