The Michaels family owned a small farm in Canada, just yards away from the American North Dakota border. Their land had been the subject of a minor dispute between the United States and Canada for generations. Mrs. Michaels, who had just celebrated her ninetieth birthday, lived on the farm with her son and three grandchildren. One day, her son came into her room holding a letter. “I just got some news, Mom,” he said. “The government has come to an agreement with the people in Washington. They’ve decided that our land is really part of the United States. We have the right to approve or disapprove of the agreement. What do you think?” “What do I think?” his mother said. “Jump at it! Call them right now and tell them we accept! I don’t think I could stand another one of those Canadian winters!”
Well, I’ve good news for the Michael’s family and this is it – Phew! The time-length forecasts of climate catastrophe are getting longer. Let me explain. In 2000, the World Wildlife Federation told us that we had five years (2005) before the arrival of climate catastrophe. In 2006, the International Energy Commission told us we had ten years (2016) before the arrival of climate catastrophe. …Now this past week, the Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued its 2018 report and the United Nations agency tells us we have twelve years (2030) before the arrival of climate catastrophe. As I said, look on the bright side – at least with each environmental apocalypse we are getting more time! Of course the main-street media is headlining this latest forecast (conveniently ignoring the last two failed ones they also head-lined at the time). And people can’t understand why this is called “fake news”.
However, if you do believe the sky is indeed about to fall again, Costco has come out with all you need to nutritionally make it through. It’s their one-year premium food survival kit. And for just $6,000 U.S., you get 600 #10 cans that will feed 4 people for 12 months, 8 people for 6 months, or 16 people for three months. Each one gets 2,000 calories a day of instant, freeze-dried or dehydrated canned food. Hmm hmm!
And by the way, if you are a little self-conscious about the delivery truck showing up with all of this, Costco assures its customers that all of the cans are discreetly packaged in brown covered boxes so only you know.
And what did President Trump do with the 2018 IPCC report? He put it in the recycle bin. How prophetic!
