Earth keeps giving us chances
One explanation for the emergence of the coronavirus COVID 19 and its variants is a universal consciousness of nature. If the earth really wanted people to survive, she would throw us a lifeline just before the tipping point of catastrophic climate change. That would be a reason to stop consuming energy as much as we do, while we reset out baseload energy production to nrenewables. We didn't really use the reprieve in 2020 and 2021. Global emissions from coal, the biggest contributor to greenhouse gases, are set to rise by 9% to record levels in 2022. Could Omicron be the last lifeline we are being thrown? I'm tipping something worse, as Mother Nature, like all mothers, knows a fair bit about being cruel to be kind.
