More meaningless chatter ... or ... a few crumbs of substance?

I grabbed the word "could" in the title of the piece. There are so many possible coulds in the next 83 years that it makes the article almost meaningless. It may be moot since the world is supposed to come to an end tomorrow (Sept. 23). Like all predictions, there are so many assumptions and suppositions that fail reality it is difficult to take any of them seriously. Humans seem to need the coulds a lot closer... say, maybe 10 years away and the trend appears to be an even shorter period than that. We don't attend to anything until it's right in our face.

I don't take know for an answer.
