    Trump wants Greenland because everytime he plays Plague Inc., those greenie fuckers close their ports before he can infect them.

    I'm going to wear a zenops hat for a moment and actually say it's not a bad idea strategically to have Greenland. If climate change ends up being as bad as the doomsday scenarios, it might be a lot more habitable or even desirable in 100-200 years.

    Moodys got press earlier this year by publishing a study which indicated that Canada's GDP actually benefits from climate change.

    I could totally see that. Something like 80% of the country is pretty much useless and not realistic to live/build industry but with warmer temps that will change.

    Did they mention a time frame? 10,000 years?

    Looking at paleoclimatology, evergreen trees used to grow at 70 degrees N latitude for about 80% of earths history and the average Arctic temp was around 0c.

    Climate change is probably a thing, it is absurd to think otherwise.

    No doubt we are in "extreme measures" if you have to do a closed loop water system like El Paso. It costs a lot of money to not use rainwater, or aquifers for basic human sustinence, nevermind some sort of food production.

    Will El Paso be "unsustainable" in a decade? Could be.
