Sure, if we only had a couple hundred crisis points converging at once in the same decade it might not be so bad ... if it weren't for that triple whammy at the end when the next Ice Age rapidly descends on the West. That's the kill shot.
The Magnetic Reversal coming soon will be the straw that broke the camel's back.
Somebody at the Boston Globe has started to get it. It's not just the absence of warming. It's the overwhelming evidence that we are approaching an apocalyptic rapid cooling that will make THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW look like the bubblegum summer movie it was. In this blockbuster, people don't burn books at the library. They burn babies on the skiddle and kill each other for a warm coat or a sleeping bag.
Seven years after Vault-Co said undersea volcanism was poisoning the oceans (paranoid madness at the time) the mainstream concedes it may be true and still gets the cause wrong.
