The Northern White House and Polar Cities for Survivors of Global Warming, year 2500 A.D.




The Northern White House
and Polar Cities for
Survivors of Global Warming,
year 2500 A.D
.





As global warming gets worse in the coming 500 years, The White House in Washington DC will be relocated to the Juneau, Alaska area where it will be called "The Northern White House" and house surviving US administration personnel -- including the then President and other key admin people, about 600 White House personnel in all -- and other survivors of global warming's disastrous events that will make much of the Lower 48 states of the USA uninhabitable. So get ready: The White House is moving north, way north, not today, not this year, not soon, but within the next 500 years for sure. Our descendants will no longer live in Washington DC, which will be a wasteland, but in Juneau, Alaska's NORTHERN WHITE HOUSE and admin city.

------------------------------------

PRESS RELEASE: for release anytime before December 31, 2499

The current White House in Washington DC will be abandonned en masse by year 2500 as global warming causes Lower 48 states of the USA to be uninhabitable as population is forced to move north in search of livable temperatures in Alaska and Canada and Russia, and in search of food and wood fuel.

By 2500, New Yorkers will be living near Fairbanks, Alaska to survive global warming events that will flood Manhattan, Long Island, Queens, Brooklyn and JFK International Airport -- and where food and fuel will be non-existant. A "Lovelock Retreat" [also called a polar city] called NEW YORK NORTH will serve as a lifeboat for New Yorkers who will be transported to Fairbanks by government orders over a period of years, with the willing and able going first, and the sick and elderly going last. It aint gonna be a pretty picture, but it's important to get ready for all this now, at least in terms of being mentally prepared for this coming dark period of human history.

However, even though NEW YORK NORTH will be in Fairbanks, centered around the buildings of the University of Alaska Fairbanks campus, and even though the White House will then be called THE NORTHERN WHITE HOUSE and will be located in southern Alaska in Juneau (the state capital), humans will survive this period of human history and over a period of severa generations, perhaps many generations, perhaps as many as 30 generations until the year 3500, people will survive and come back down to the Lower 48 states when the climate has readjusted and food can be grown and stored there.

Voodoo pork says:

"Let's try to avoid the tin-foil space helmet theories here, folks.

In 500 years, we could all have sixteen thumbs and be driving hydrogen-powered dildos. That's a half century away. How is this really relevant to our lives now? Yes, this is POSSIBLE, but so is anything. I just don't know exactly what discussion about this idea is supposed to accomplish. Even if New York moves to Alaska in 500 years, none of us are going to be around to complain or applaud it.

We should really be focusing on practical solutions to real-world problems; like stopping sprawl, supporting public transportation, having standards for architectural design, and etc. Let's worry about the Moon bases after we figure out how we're going to build better cities on Earth."

Al Gore concluded his July 17 speech with

"Our entire civilization depends upon us now embarking on a new journey of exploration and discovery. Our success depends on our willingness as a people to undertake this journey and to complete it within 10 years. Once again, we have an opportunity to take a giant leap for humankind."

NO, he should have said:

"Our entire civilization depends upon us now DISCUSSING AND PLANNING AND DESIGNING AND SITING polar cities for survivors of global warming in the distant future, since it is obvious that none of the fixes we are talking about are going to work. Our SURVIVAL AS A SPECIES depends on our willingness as HUMANS to TAKE THIS POLAR CITIES IDEA AND MOVE IT FORWARD AS AN ADAPTATION STRAGEGY. We have an opportunity to Try TO HELP ENSURE THE SURVIVAL OF THE HUMAN SPECIES, IF ONLY WE TAKE THIS IDEA SERIOUSLY AND BRAVELY START PLANNING NOW, absurd as it seems."

"New York" was called "Nieuw Nederland" (Colony,) "Nieuw Amsterdam" (City) until the English Took it over and gave the current unoriginal label(s.) When the USA became independent, they just never bothered renaming the state or city. The future must suck if they are going to keep that title (also see "New New York" of "Futurama.")

If refugees from Gotham/The Big Apple and The Empire State are going to start anew up north, the name(s) of their settlement(s) should be an echo of those unique to the area such as Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx etc.

Also, I think Tanana has a lot of promise as a port city in the post-Greenhouse world.

Other "safe havens": The Falklands/Malvinas, Baffin Island, Greenland, Svalbard, Southern Patagonia and Kerguelen.
