The three words most commonly used to describe Texas are ‘hot as hell!’
Well, last month hell froze over. Literally. The arctic conditions which swept across Texas caused mayhem. Author Michael Moorcock writing from Austin, Texas reported shortages of food and milk, frozen water pipes bursting and birds and animals dying. Multi-car pile ups caused by motorists unfamiliar with icy roads were commonplace. People were dying from hypothermia. All previously unheard of. Hot southern European countries like Spain and Greece were similarly hit with icy conditions. Some parts of Australia have had their coolest summer in nearly 20 years. What is going on?
As members and supporters would know, this is our first post on climate change. As our aim is to put the family at the centre of every conversation, the current climate situation is unavoidable.
Reducing CO2 is costing families a fortune. From power bills to planning laws to manufactured goods, measures to reduce CO2 are everywhere. And while Australia is making tiny reductions to its CO2 emissions, China, India, Russia and a hundred other developing countries are increasing their emissions. Across the world CO2 emissions are increasing, yet temperatures have dropped. We were told increases in CO2 cause increases in temperature. Is this year an aberration? Will temperatures rise next year? What if they don’t? What if CO2 isn’t to blame after all? It wouldn’t be the first time a theory has been found to be wrong. Meanwhile, families are suffering financial hardship. If the CO2 theory does end up being wrong, perhaps those who made millions from renewable energy will reimburse us.
