Climate change freaks me out. And now the US has a president that doesn't agree with climate change and wants to build a new pipeline and invest in coal -______-
On fossil fuels- I don't think we're just going to suddenly run out and then the economy is going to crash. There are many alternative forms of energy already (wind, solar, hydroelectric, nuclear, biomass) and many more being researched and tested. If anything, we are going to slowly ween off of fossil fuels. The only thing we will really need fossil fuels for is transportation. It will be difficult to recreate the transportation infrastructure. But have you seen the research on algal fuels? It's amazing!
Climate change isn't my main concern though.. it's water. There's a pipeline that runs under the great lakes that's 50 years old and isn't in good shape... it could potentially experience a major leak, which would destroy the great lakes. The great lakes are 20% of the world's surface freshwater. Who needs fuel to get us around and light us up when we literally need water to survive? Could you imagine if the prices of water skyrocketed? Create some awareness for the pipeline here: Contact Michigan's Leaders: Shut Down Line 5
Just my thoughts on the matter. I can't predict the future or anything. But we should all have a back-up suicide plan if some giant natural disaster happens or something goes horribly wrong. I don't want to suffer to death..
