The Climate Has Changed
On Nov, 2, it normally would be way more cold and we would have snow by now. The last 5 or 6 years no snow until much later on. Climate has definitely changed here. When I was a child in the 1970's and a teen in the 1980's, there would be snow up to my knees at least and Dec and Jan would be in the -40 or -50 range. Now if we hit -30 we call it a cold snap and most of the winter I don't need a heavy jacket at all. As for snow, if we get more than 4 or 5 inches it's a point of interest.
As it is right now, It's -4C and I could go out in my light jacket and be comfortable. As for snow, there has been almost no sign of it. It tossed a few flakes at us last week, but it instantly melted. Gone are the days you could not see the houses from the street, because the snow was piled so high.
As well, it seems to be a heck of a lot dryer now. The crops are not so good these days because of it. I am just rather glad I never had children. I can't imagine how the world will be 20 or 30 years from now. All I know is we need to change or we are screwed.
The idea of going to another planet to save humanity from it's greed and stupidity is a pipe dream at best. The best outcome of that is generational ships leaving for worlds hundreds of years away. If they even manage to get there, there will be no guarantee that humanity will survive there. As we are now, I firmly doubt we are able to achieve this, even if we where certain of a planet being earth like.
I don't think our time is up yet, but I think in the next 100 years it will be. I also think there will sooner or later be a global war over what is left of resources and usable land to plant crops. We will die off scattered to the far winds in small groups of stragglers who hold on to the last bit of farm land in their region.
