76. Polar bears are doomed, I'm afraid.

I know that when they are extinct, they will still say that there's no proof that the extinction was caused by humankind.

People should just realize, there is not going to be conclusive "scientific" proof of global warming, or if there is, that it's caused by humans-- for 200 years, until the surviving human race looks back, sees what was predicted and what came true.

But the all the indications are so damn strong, in one direction, from several disciplines. I am so tired of arguing with my brothers and father about this.

I'm thinking that I will see the first real "year without a winter" in North America before I die. I may even see multiple years without a winter. Suggestion everyone: move to Canada. I think the weather is going to be wonderful, and a lot of its land is going to be deglaciated.

I'm afraid the problem comes down to this: each gallon of gasoline contains 36.6 kilowatt hours of energy. That's energy people require to survive, including for making food. How do we replace that? Not with wind. Not with solar.

Unless our population somehow drops, there is no solution to the problem. I'm afraid the decision on whether to do this has already been made for us. It's a matter of how organized we can remain as it happens.
