I occasionally look at stuff about the Tiny House ‘movement’ and about folks who live in RVs. I’ve lived ‘on the road’ a fair amount while working and that’s a kind of ‘tiny house’ issue (be it a hotel room, or 4 days in a car on the road…)
Similarly, living in Quake Country and having gone through a 7 quake and been without electricity a few days, being “prepared” is just part of the landscape requirements.
So I’ve watched a couple of Tinyhouse Prepper videos from time to time. That means YouTube feeds me more ;-) So this morning, this one popped up. In it, ‘Tinyhouse Prepper’ looks at Climate Change / Global Warming.
Now part of what I find interesting is just how effectively the ‘Prepper’ mind set deals with the Global Warming fraud. We look at potential threats and we assess them objectively looking for demonstrated risks and then plan what mitigations are needed. It can be lethal to get that wrong, so we tend to be rather careful and thorough about it. Do I need 32 gallons, or 64 gallons of water to get through a post-quake water system outage? How many weeks (or months) of food? What bracing on the house? Will a tent be needed and what is the right one for this weather and climate? Where to store it so it isn’t destroyed if the house collapses or burns?
That was partly why I started looking at “Global Warming” a decade+ back. Thinking: “This looks bad. I need to look into it and see how bad, where, and what will happen.” What I found was a lot of fuzzy thinking, errors, and flat out lies from the Warmistas, and well reasoned well supported logically consistent analysis from the Skeptics. Then I did a LOT of my own, which largely showed it was a ‘Politically Driven Process’ for economic change / domination / money suckage.
So here’s another Prepper who essentially follows the same path. What is it? How bad will it be? What mitigations are needed? And arrives at the same end point: Warming is BS, we need to prep for cold and snow and crop losses from cold wet windy fields.
While I come at things with a very strong computer sciences, data analysis, and math background; it is nice to see the same conclusions from a regular guy (not a “Geek”).
His video has some interesting details I’d missed. In particular the record snow in Hawaii (and ends with a startling photo of an iced over frozen truck on a mountain there – looking more like Wyoming in winter than Hawaii). So he’s got graphs, and photos, and news stories from a variety of sites. All presented in an orderly way by a Regular Guy. It gives me hope that more Regular Guys “get it” too. One need not be a math and computer wiz / geek. 29 minutes.
Anyone interested in “being prepared” ought to look at some of his other videos too. A “Tiny House” does not have a lot of room for things like a year supply of food or a few hundred gallons of water & extra fuel. It takes special care to make that work on a smaller scale.
