Climate Wars by Gwynn Dyer

Postby Geoff » Mon Feb 19, 2018 9:32 pm

It is debatable if this book is "spiritual", but we have to get people to focus on the huge issues facing this world at the moment.

This book is written by an Australian journalist. While of a scientific mind, he wrote it based on the interviews he did with world leading researchers in the climate business. What is so sad about this book is that it was published in 2008, ten years ago, and the predictions for what we "had to do" in the next ten years have NOT been met. We are heading for his "disaster scenarios" and no one seems to have noticed, well no one in the public or political world.

What makes the book easy to read are his future scenarios. Sadly he is of a mind that we will have major wars based on a need to regain arable land as the current land becomes unproductive, and the best lands go either South in the Southern hemisphere, or North in the North. So the US loses a huge amount of currently arable land, and Canada gains it. His biggest worry is Siberia that will become arable, and he sees China have to make a grab for that by taking on Russia, because they wont be able to feed their people. He also predicts the US will drain the Great Lakes of water, leaving most of the Cnadian population which lives using that water source, without water.

Sigh. I don't think this is how it will play out, but thats because in my understanding is its going to move a lot faster, and so fast mankind will just be totally shocked and in despair.

Haven't read the book, but your mention on “disasters” caught my eye. *the People are advising to stay away from gov. shelters during these times of disasters.

I have not read that, but I guess its a US thing? Not sure any other countries have such things as "government shelters", we sure don't in Aus. I must admit hearing what happened in Hawaii when they had a false nuclear missile attack warning, one is not very inspired. We know of Australian visitors told to "take cover" in the ocean.

But I don't like the way that that volcano is going on the Big Island. I sure hope it doesn't really blow.
