The Inconvenient Truth Of An Inconvenient Truth

Every bone in my body (despite breaking a few) wants to help humanity, not soil our planet (albeit systemically). Hence, I applaud every effort to adjust our responsibility not to poop where we eat. I applaud Al Gore’s attempts to clean the house as I set their expectations straight.

Bronze Age Politics

We must begin to realize nature provides the resources humanity needs to survive, and the renewable strengthening of those resources is essential.

As the author of the book “An Inconvenient Truth,” published fifteen years ago, former Vice President Al Gore’s inability to rally the political troops behind climate change as the second in command suggests a bigger problem than his bronzed face these days.

To look more like John Boehner, the 53rd Speaker of the House, is now perhaps Al’s best attempt to reach across the aisle. But let me stay out of the political bickering that ignores nature’s rule and has done nothing to advance humanity or reduce CO2 levels for the last sixty years.

Good Times

As a testament to government dysfunction, and despite his political clout, Al Gore has been begging for years for the public to get involved because he knows leaders very well, but these politicians are not.

Even more perilous is to rely on a democracy in which the sum of human wants will never equate to human needs. A society enamored with the Kardashian lifestyle does not care about preserving nature’s resources. In the words of my ex: I am here for a good time, not a long time.

People who do not take a coronavirus vaccine despite the probability of getting the disease and dead in one week are certainly not the ones promoting climate change that “only” really affects the next generation.

Entropy

The inconvenient truth of Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth is the hasty, solipsistic, and ill-formed inference that humans cause climate change. While there is some evidence human ignorance aggravates the situation, all change on our planet, including aging, is first and foremost driven by nature’s entropy.

Entropy, in the words of Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman, is defined as the decline of available energy in the universe.

A little more than halfway into its predicted evolutionary lifetime- 4.5 billion years in, with 3.5 billion more to go- our planet is subject to many forms of entropy with cascading consequences for everything on it. How the branches of those consequences intersect and influence each other within the confines of a dynamic equilibrium on Earth is everyone’s guess, just as one cannot predict how the branches of a river flow and intersect.

Dangerous Al

Realizing we do not know all the consequences of entropy is a more realistic stance than pretending to know. As you can glean from Learn To Think, pretending to know is called belief, the opposite of reason.

Al Gore’s beliefs, derived from data “science” stuck regurgitating consequential statistics, induce precisely the sleep of reason he says he opposes. Even climate czar John Kerry warned that a net-zero economy may not resolve climate change.

Cause leads to consequence. And by nature’s asymmetry of entropy, a consequence cannot uniquely identify causation.

To draw an apt comparison, Al Gore behaves like a doctor who claims to be able to solve cancer by lowering the patient’s body temperature. Lowering the temperature may temporarily make life more bearable, but it does not allow us to adapt to other severe consequences from an ignored higher-order cause.

Encore

The most blatant disregard for nature’s supremacy comes from Al Gore’s reference to producing a sustainable economy.

As you should know from my many write-ups, sustainability does not exist anywhere in the universe. It violates nature’s first principles and is a flat-world manmade dogma that needs a round-world reality to come to our senses.

Instead, the universe and everything on our planet revolve around the strength of renewal, calibrated dynamically against the reduction of available energy from entropy. Humanity must learn about and abide by nature’s first principles and build systems that prioritize and incentivize evolutionary excellence for humanity to adapt to nature’s entropy.

Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth is an evolutionary false-positive that prevents us from preempting and adapting to the many curve balls of change nature throws.
