I'm afraid of that. That's why I have never been a joyrider

From the feeling standpoint, the philosophy standpoint, it can zero down to smugness upon reading that the philosopher stands in a doorway during the storm, collar up.

For me there is more of an engineering urgency to the dance. The book Happy City mentions a sobering comparison. If everyone on earth lived like Americans it would take 9 earths to support us all. If everyone on earth lived like Parisians it would take 3 earths to support us all.

We only have one earth.

“Earth has shifted” – Inuit elders issue warning to NASA and the world

Quote:
A new warning has come to NASA from the Inuits.

They are warning that the change in climate is not due to global warming but rather, because of the Earth shifting a bit.

The Inuits are local people that live in the Arctic regions of Canada, the United States and Greenland.

They are excellent weather forecasters and so were their ancestors.

Presently they are warning NASA that the cause of change in weather, earthquakes etc, are not due to global warming as the world thinks.

They state that the earth has shifted or “wobbled”. “Their sky has changed!”

If true, NASA would have known already.

That's what I think.

But it was an interesting story.

Plus I have that fascination and awe of all things Native American that is so common amongst us white folks.

So the logical side of my brain says it's bullshit, while the other whadacallit side wants to buy into it.

Astronemers would know instantly. It would change where everything is, relative to viewpoints on the earth.

Anyone who still 'shoots the sun' to navigate would find things were off.
