The New Big Scare?

I have pointed out on more than one occasion, and others have too, that we have been faced with a new cataclysmic environmental catastrophe every ten years or so.

1960s We were going to be buried in garbage
1970s We were going to crowd ourselves off the planet.
1980s Acid rain was going to destroy everything
1990s A big hole in the Ozone layer
2000s Global Warming

Every one of these was an overreaction to a reality. Sometimes man-made (garbage, over-crowding) and other times it was purely or mostly natural and self-correcting (the hole in the ozone layer, global warming). Litter and overpopulation merely required that we educate the public and the problem was seriously reduced. The ones that were natural turned out to be part of normal cycles.

As the new decade begins one wonders what the new scare will be. What will the "progressives" with their pathological need to control every aspect of other peoples' lives cling to as a new excuse to control everything.

How about the decline in Earth's magnetic field? It is happening and so far all the scientists that have tracked it believe it is a natural and repeating phenomenon.

Ah!!! But couldn't we just maybe blame it on the magnetic fields created by all our electronic devices? Wouldn't that be a great excuse to ban or limit our civilization so we can go back to a Luddite paradise where almost everyone dies by 45?

Remember that these people have a deep rooted need to control us and since global warming is now failing, they need a new excuse. I know that I shouldn't give them any ideas but I strongly suspect that certain minds have already headed that way. Heads up people.

UPDATE Speaking of scares, check this out on Carol's Blog.

Basically a lot of these nuts can be traced back to Earth Firsters. They want nothing short of getting rid of all of the humans (except themselves one can only assume)

Never let a [manufactured] crisis go to waste, huh?

Back when I was in college (1968-1972), several of our professors were warning of the coming Ice Age. Pfffft!

i've often wondered about the guys who used to preach "the end is near" stuff - - some wandered around wearing signboards proclaiming that the end was near; or the reckoning was at hand. do you suppose on their deathbeds they changed their minds? or maybe a week later they decided - oh well.......the end of things have historically been proclaimed any number of times - but what about those who believed it, or originated it? what's happened to them? ((yeah, i know - weird, i am))

I have to admit, Shoprat, that since I've heard about how easy it would be for anyone to blow our electrical grid, I'm not worried about much of anything else, which is kind of freeing, of course!:)
I'd hear Timmerman (I think that's his name) in person at a Republican David Horowitz event about 7 years ago...everyone left QUIETLY..scared WITLESS...and I caught a few minutes of him on HANNITY last night, I wish I HADN'T, frankly...
So, how it's Earth's magnetic field.......being buried in garbage is sounding good to me :-)
