Prices going up? Prices going down?
Ball of confusion
It's climate change today
Or at least, there are people out there who would like to blame every single bad thing that happens on "climate change."
Listen, I am a climate conservative: I think we should mess with our atmosphere as little as possible, and I believe we might have messed with it too much already. But...
Today, I saw someone on Twitter blame recent price rises on... us "cooking the planet." Uuuugh...
- Earth is warming up some, but it's been far warmer than this in the past. What's more... earth don't care! It's a friggin' planet! It will be fine even if we wipe out the human race.
- Not every bad thing that happens is due to climate change! The January 6 riot did not happen because of climate change. China persecuting the Uyghuts is not due to climate chnage. And the recent bout of inflation is not due to climate change: It is due to the Fed flooding the economy with cheap funds for a dozen years.
