Up In Smoke

With the current heatwave and forest fires in Australia as proof (some would say) the planet is undergoing an unprecedented time of temperature rises, freak weather occurrences, and record carbon emissions, the news that there could be a potential solution coming from the quantum world is pleasing to hear.

The arguments, however — as to whether our planet is heating up or if it’s just some leftist, green-tinged liberal conspiracy to make China and the United States go red with shame — is still up for debate.

All the arguments for the rise in temperatures do have credence: steady metrics and statistical data going back decades proves, at least scientifically speaking, the trend is a real one.

This, of course, will make the brattish Greta Thunberg and the acolytes of the Extinction
