Bright Side! Climate Change Death Spiral Will Bring Cheaper Gas, Jobs!

News

We are basically in an imminent death-spiral, says a new report that will probably be ignored:


Senior US government officials are to be briefed at the White House this week on the danger of an ice-free Arctic in the summer within two years.

Worried? Don't be! First of all, this will mostly affect Poors and women, and who cares about them? Nobody, that's who, otherwise they wouldn't be Poors. Or women, duh. Also, the Free Market will rescue them anyway (assuming, of course, that global warming doesn't set all the Bootstraps on fire and cause a global Bootstrap shortage), and even if it doesn't, there will be a Second Coming and it will all be part of God's Plan.

And we still haven't gotten to the BEST PART, which is that an ice-free summer means more oil and more jobs for everyone!

From the Guardian:

Arctic "stakeholders" include US, Russian, Canadian, Norwegian and Danish energy firms, which are scrambling to exploit the northern polar region's untapped natural wealth. The region is estimated to hold a quarter of the world's remaining undiscovered oil and gas reserves, sparking concerted efforts by these countries to expand their Arctic military presence.

The US Homeland Security Department's Climate Change Roadmapreleased last year raised similar issues, warning that climate change "could directly affect the Nation's critical infrastructure", as well as aggravating "conditions that could enable terrorist activity, violence, and mass migration".

Translation: cheaper gas! Warmer climes! Job creation in the nation's military-industrial and infrastructure industries!

Those sound nice, we should make sure to do nothing that could possibly forestall that, which is good because we won't. Easiest. New Year's Resolution. EVAR.

I wasn't ready for Koko the gorilla to die. She was just 46, so still young well past the upper age limit for a gorilla, but I'll miss her. She loved cats, told mildly amusing jokes, and put up with people, so she was a lot like your weird aunt.

Donald Trump held one of his televised cabinet meetings today in which he railed about the terrible Democrats who forced the current border crisis (at a time when illegal border crossings are actually lower than usual). In what's sure to be his favorite phrase on Twitter for the next few days, Trump blamed "extremist open-border Democrats" for all the problems he brought on himself with his family separation policy, and explained that Democrats were simultaneously hurting illegal immigrants AND the rest of America by forcing Normal America to accept Central Americans who fled to the US. It made loads of sense! And then things got ... less so.
