Klima som abstraksjon og distraksjon

Kommentartråd her.
På et vis har du rett, da klimasnakket lett blir en abstraksjon som fungerer for å tilsløre andre alvorlige problemer, som det forestående finansielle kollapset.
Let’s stop talking about climate change. If financial collapse brings down the economy, hardly any of us are going to be around to observe it, assuming it happens. The earth’s ecosystems will recover from climate change; it is human civilization that likely won’t–but human civilization has huge other challenges, as I keep pointing out. 
Climate change models haven’t built financial collapse into them, so the story they are telling is seriously distorted. Climate change is popular from a political point of view, because it takes peoples eyes off of our (other) close at hand problems. It is popular with scientists, because it generates huge funding for studying this subject, whether or not we can do anything about it. The one thing we can do that is likely to impact the course of climate change is to collapse the economy, and that seems to be happening already. - Gail Tverberg
Mest sannsynlig vil klimaproblemet løses gjennom den neste finanskrisa: http://eivindberge.blogspot.no...

Politikerne kan forresten intet gjøre, de er låst i det politiske og økonomiske systemet, med falske løfter som aldri kan innfris. Tverberg sier det slik:
When it comes to what happens with a political system, we end up with politicians trying to please voters, and voters wanting promises that everything will be all right/better. We end up with two (or more) parties, each trying to come up with promises that are basically impossible, if a person thinks about it. The whole system becomes more and more distorted as the political system grants money to “prove” whatever needs to be proved to support their promises. There is huge emphasis on “science,” but a lot of this science is very iffy. No one can deal with the idea of living in a finite world, and limits being part of the “plan”.
