CO2 Casus Belli?

    It has all the potential, the eve of the emission war:

    And sure enough:

    There is no climate crisis, only a perception thereof. Kind of Iraqi WMD's but from the first link:

    I'm afraid that Andre's law of conservation of concern is in action here.

    Andre, I don't understand what you're trying to discuss in this thread.

    Okay, I try to explain.

    First of all Casus Belli

    Together with that linked thread I intended to point out that millenia of culture and centuries of objective science, humanity does not begin attempting to overcome primitive fear and herd instinct. And it's the same pattern to disaster, the eve's of all wars, that we see over and over again: create fear, exploit the enemy image and be the great victorious hero, ruling the world.

    So predictable. Too sad for words.
