In Al Gore’s latest fear mongering book “The Future” he doesn’t seem to be concerned about Global Warming or Climate Change anymore but something he calls Global Change.
In the below trailer for the book ( I guess books have trailers now) he lists 6 new problems we need to worry about:
- Global Economy
- Instant Communication
- Shifts in Power
- Genetic Manipulation
- Humans & The Ecosystem
Surprisingly Global Warming and Climate Change aren’t even listed. What Al seems to have done is mashed those terms together to create a new thing to be afraid of “Global Change”.
Maybe Al suffer from Neophobia which is the fear of anything new. I on the other hand expect change, I would be more afraid if nothing ever changed.
What if the temperature never changed and was exactly the same from day to day and year to year, that would be creepy. What if our population never changed that every time a child came into the world someone else would die, that would be really creepy.
Another thing Al is worried about is Instant Communication. If I owned Apple stock I would be worried about having Al on the board. Does he want us to go back to land lines or something? Maybe Al doesn’t like Instant Communication because of blogs like this one and wattsupwiththat because we are raining on his parade.
