“If you see this, weep.” – 1616 Hunger Stone found in the bed of the river Elbe in Germany, 2022.
Another day, another sign of the complete and utter incompetence of leftists in government. Rivers and lakes throughout western European nations, like Germany and Italy, are running dry. In the United States, man-made reservoirs that supply water to multiple states, like Lake Mead, are also at historically low levels.
In Germany, carved stones detailing the horrors of famine, drought, and plague have been exposed by low water levels. The stones were carved in 1616, the authors lost to history.
Eery warnings indeed. As you can imagine, all fingers are being pointed in a single direction: human induced climate change. Egads! How could this happen? What have we done?
Yawn. Listen, the weather changes. Alot. Many times in the extreme. That hasn’t changed, but our ability and will to plan for those changes and to mitigate them has.
Lake Mead provides water and power for multiple states and to Mexico ( can you get your own water, since you suck as a neighbor? ). It is extremely important for that reason, and because of the genius of our great-grandparents and the Hoover Dam, we have the ability to manipulate and manage levels for our benefit.
In Europe, rivers connect nations and allow commerce as well as power production and water access. These same nations also have the ability to manage and manipulate levels to prevent or avert disaster.
Instead, the rivers and lakes get lower and lower, and the climate change hyperbole gets louder and louder. Oddly, water authorities in the US are giddy about Lake Mead’s emptying, and so are European leaders about their rivers. Why would that be? The answer is twofold: Firstly, there are laws in the US and in Europe that give extraordinary emergency powers to the government if water levels fall to dangerous lows. And secondly, dry lakes and rivers are a visual and visceral sight to people, and it makes them panicked and willing to blame the weather instead of the real culprits…their leaders and their governments.
This is not a climate crisis, it is a leadership crisis. The Aristocrats and Uniparty elites of western civilization have grown quite accustomed to there being a never-ending emergency. More power and control for them, and less for you. All for “the planet”.
If they could just answer this: When the “hunger stones” were carved in 1616, how much industrial pollution was there and how many gas-guzzling SUV’s were there on the road?
Look around at the world these masters-of-the-universe have given us. See how everything’s a mess? They want you to blame yourself and your neighbors. In reality though, it’s not your fault or my fault, and it’s not your car’s fault… it’s their fault and they know it. They are incompetent ideologues, narcissists and nihilists…and we know it.
