Randall Carlson on Climate Change (Joe Rogan Podcast)
For me it's been a long week of hearing about climate change news on the radio news and seeing people fiercely debate Greta Thunberg online.
I saw Randall Carlson, who runs a Sacred Geometry Institute (https://sacredgeometryinternational.com/) stitch together his discussions of his thoughts on climate change during his various JRE interviews:
I've heard him discuss this before on other podcasts, and I find his viewpoints very interesting. As far as I know it, he thinks that the planet is definitely warming, but that it might not be primarily CO2 and/or human caused CO2 emissions that are driving this warming. His concern is that focusing only on human caused CO2 emissions, our responses might be focused towards goals that don't help with the human resilience in the face of inevitable warming.
I myself am not educated enough to really evaluate any of this, though I'm trying to learn more (it is slow going!!)
I am starting to see a gap widening between longer term human resilience and the things gaining popularity in various circles of people concerned with climate change. For instance, I see a lot of people, especially those who kind of like the status quo and and are a bit 'technocratic', feel that all we need is a lot of nuclear reactors and carbon-capture-and-sequestration plants. If nuclear energy never ends up being economically viable, and we are left with a lot of radioactive waste, and high tech plants that scrubbing CO2 from the air that don't prevent warming -- then I think we will have squandered resources that could've been spent more wisely on long term adaptations to a warming planet.
As an aside, I think Carlson would be a pretty interesting figure for people interested in JMG's work. Carlson was worked in construction for most of his career, and has been involved in freemasonry for a long time. He teaches courses on sacred geometry, and is heavily involved in researching ancient civilizations (which is why he's done so much reading on geology and climate and long term human history.)
