Bat Soup Virus Shows Us What Hotcoldwetdry Disruption Could Maybe Possibly Look Like

Haven’t climate cultists figured out that COVID-19 is old news now, that they are supposed to integrate the protests, rioting, and looting?

Coronavirus Shows Us What Climate Change Disruption Could Look Like

Mark Carney’s final years as governor of the Bank of England can be defined by his efforts to break what he calls climate change’s tragedy of the horizon: Despite consensus formed on the coming catastrophic impacts of climate change, the international community is condemned to inaction because those impacts will only be felt well beyond the horizons of traditional business and political cycles. “In other words,” Carney said, “once climate change becomes a defining issue for financial stability, it may already be too late.”

Carney, now United Nations special envoy for climate action and finance, has been in the habit recently of reminding us that we can’t self-isolate from climate change. The current crisis is being viewed as one more opportunity not to be wasted to break the tragedy of the horizons.

The global death and disruption caused by COVID-19 is not the direct result of climate change; however, the scale and nature of disruption parallel, in many ways, what scientists are telling us about a world where climate change is left unchecked.

For the first time in generations, we see the very real social and economic disruption wrought by a hard-to-imagine natural event that arrives gradually and sporadically, but quickly morphs into a runaway systemic threat. This time, it is a virus. Next time, it will be temperature rises and extreme weather events.

Physical risks of climate change will shutter businesses, disrupt supply chains and diminish the health and well-being of employees. The transition risks will bankrupt unprepared companies, lead to job losses and exacerbate inequalities. While temperatures will rise gradually over the coming decades, left unchecked, climate change will eventually reach the critical point at which the scale and velocity of change will quickly overwhelm societies, disrupt political systems, inflame geopolitical tensions and create conflict over essential resources.

Interestingly, it was Bat Soup shuttering businesses, despite a big slowdown in economic activity in February as people were concerned, afraid, and unsure: it was Government dictating which businesses where essential and non-essential, and telling the latter to shut down, with fines and jail threatened for those who did not comply. And dictating the way the essentials operated while open. The job loss goes to the government shut downs. Then Government dictating that people stay home, that travel is restricted, that only certain products could be purchased. People having to rely on government money. This is the world of ‘climate change’ policy. This is what it looks like.

Frans Timmermans, the European Union’s Green Deal chief, stresses that the Green Deal will be central to any recovery efforts and that the EU will move forward with the framework’s key pillars on the original timeline. This includes the proposed new climate law, making it legally binding for all EU-27 member states to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

So, pretty much codifying the conditions people are living through during Coronavirus. But, hey, I say they should institute everything in their GND, acting as the experimental group, letting the rest of us watch what happens.

    But, but, but, I thought that it was already too late! We were past the whateverth tipping point!
