Climate change is a key impending issue alongside overpopulation - and the two are inextricably linked since people view breeding as a "right" and some cultures actually encourage it despite every baby born being a further drain on declining resources and a net carbon producer.
So I got to thinking about what actually are the economics of a world post climate shift?
We'd need solar and extreme weather resistant housing or underground bunkers. We'd need machines make breathable air and drinkable water. We'd need to grow our own insects and other food.
Any chance of Governments providing these? I don't think it's in the long term economic strategy somehow.
Then it struck me that the only people that could afford this stuff are the billionaires who fund and resource the political parties and media that keep them at the top of the food chain - and they are likely to be the only survivors.
Which led me to thinking, is their strategy to view climate change as a solution to over-population as the great plagues of the dark and middle ages were?
Could climate change denial be a plan to decimate the human population in order to reset life on earth with the super rich taking human life forward?
