How can we adapt to Climate Change?

When I was a kid most trees lost their leaves in mid October with the Oak loosing its leaves before Bonfire Night now Oak & Hazel do not start to loose their leaves until mid December. This year the Oak came into leaf in March 6 weeks before its pre-industrial companion the Ash. The change in growing seasons is not all good news as summers get hotter & dryer grasses including wheat for bread stop growing.

The changes in volcanic activity & solar spot activity (which causes solar wind to disrupt Earth Ionosphere shield and let more rays in) & the changes in the Earth’s orbit account for 80 to 90% of the observed temperature changes. So some change is inevitable so we need to adapt.

Politicians & bureaucrats want a simple “One Size Fits All” so Mrs Thatcher chose CO2 & set up the IPC and changed the way University Research was funded (to the number of times an article is published (ie more sensational or extreme findings) instead of the quality of peer reviews of the science / evidence) to promote it.

CO2 is produced by the process of breathing so makes an ideal tax subject as everyone breathes.

Plants use the energy from the sun to produce Oxygen & to grow in the reverse process of Breathing called Photosynthesis

6CO2 + 6H2O + Energy = C6H12O6 + 6O2

The ice core studies showed that in the past increases in CO2 lagged hundreds of years behind temperature increases. However the release millions of years worth of stored CO2 in just a few decades must have some effect.

It has been known for over 100 years (thanks to aerial photography & saterlight images) that every change in landuse (– including switching from organic farming to growing the same crops under unsustainable modern chemical production methods favored by the banks) produces detectable changes.

Bare ground & roads & buildings of non-natural materials (eg brick, concrete, steel or glass) absorb the sun’s energy as heat during the day & radiates most of it back into the atmosphere at night making towns 4c warmer than the surrounding countryside which is why some of the temperature readings are adjusted over time.

As Party Politicians & bureaucrats are not accountable & do not use science or review evidence in their decision making they want to pretend that the Climate Change we are experiencing is caused by CO2 instead of their policy of subsidizing polluters & creating economic bubbles to boost the profit of a few at the expense of all.

Climate Change can be solved by:

  1. introducing True Cost & Benefit Analysis into decision making
  2. and by transplanting Holly & Laurel from the woodlands (where they are shading out biodiversity) to increase Health & Safety of roads by planting down the center to reduce glare for drivers & to filter out the poisons
  3. Making government accountable
  4. Stop subsidizing polluters via the tax system
  5. Make produces/sellers responsible for all the waste they produce & the quality of the products (ie designed to last)
  6. Switching to Wellbeing as the primary measure of society instead of the system of Fake Accounting called GDP
  7. Requiring all land managers to leave the land & biodiversity in a healthier state than it was 10 years ago
  8. Design communities to need less commuting & to walk or cycle
  9. Design buildings & roads to be carbon neutral including in construction – growing plants on walls, roofs & other wasted areas
  10. Taking personal responsibility for the choices we make that either harm our Life-support system (boosting the profit for a few) or benefits us.
