No mention of deep water ports being lost to rising sea levels in this article – Who pays the enormous cost of moving all our stuff?
But you will read a happy note:
“Not anything within a year or two, but within a decade or so we could see very interesting stuff,” says Rodrigue. “A lot of vehicles will be self-driving, dropping stuff automatically at some specific, pre-set points, and the loading and unloading will be somehow automated, and people will just need to pick up their stuff.” The reduced energy costs of automated vehicles and optimized routing and deliveries could mean we’ll need fewer energy-sucking vehicles on the road to get all the stuff we need.
This is the typical disconnect from reality that passes for news these days and a point that I’m going to keep bringing up. You. Are. Being. Lied. To. By. The. Media.
If we assume that climate change does not wreck absolute havoc upon sea shipping, does not devastate economies, factories and production, does not impact resources, and does not affect spending for consumer products (by some imaginary miracle – but check the Baltic Dry Index for a reality check) – we can still know that most ports around the world will need to be replaced due to rising ocean levels.
Who’s going to pay for that?
You are (of course) – while you struggle for daily survival and sustenance. Meanwhile, this type of ‘thinking‘ (insanity) is still being proposed.
I need to add a “Stupid Human” category to this blog.
