    If the greatest threat to the world today is climate chaos wouldn't it follow that the county that is doing the most to alleviate it, to combat it and to survive it would gain power over other countries? What good will all the weapons, the wealth, the luxuries be in the wake of climate chaos?

    Think of the the ancient Romans, surrounded by Barbarians, with their food supplies cut off. What good was all their gold and riches and magnificent buildings to them?

    Yes indeed in many ways we are devolving into the 19th century with vast wealth in the hands of a few so-called elite. But freaky weather will affect everyone even them.

    To thine ownself be true
