A Few Other Thoughts On Our Future

We are already experiencing shortages of some food products, which was something I’ve tried to spread the warnings about. 2008 does not look any better. The alarm bells are ringing of a rising global food shortage and agricultural shortfalls. Poor and impoverished nations will be hit first and hardest (always the case).

A great article by the Christian Science Monitor, on Why The Era of Cheap Food is Over. As much as 30% of the U.S. grain crop will be poured in American gas tanks this coming year. This is unbelievable – but believe it, it is happening.

Laws Relating To Sustainability

Garrett Hardin’s Three Laws of Human Ecology

Boulding’s Three Theorems, Abernethy’s Axiom, and
“LAWS RELATING TO SUSTAINABILITY” by Dr. Albert A. Bartlett

Sent in by Lonewolf (thank you) and emphasis and [comments] mine:

First Law

Population growth and/or growth in the rates of consumption of resources cannot be sustained. [While this should be self-evident, it’s not as shown by the constant demand for consumerism and economic ‘growth’ (planned destruction)].

The End Of The World

Lonewolf sent in another great link: The End Of The World

I don’t think this is a blog reader here, but they could have been. A one-page summary of just how bad it is, what we’re facing and what is likely to happen.

It is very hard to comprehend just how serious our situation has become. Right now, it still seems to almost everyone that this party will just keep on going forever. Yet this is a seriously dangerous illusion. Our so-called “success” has had really serious side-effects. We’ve experienced unprecedented growth on the back cheap oil, exploding our population, production and manufacturing capability. Our entire civilization was built around this “abundance” paradigm.

Climate Change IS Worse Then Expected – But Here’s a Dangerous Proposal To Fix It

Here is factual proof regarding climate change and my predictions that we were consistently and faithfully, underestimating it’s impacts.

Several critical points that I’ve brought forth on this blog before:

a) We’ve known about it for a long time;

b) We are not working on ANY real solutions at all;

c) We’ve effectively accomplished nothing in the past 50 years;

The Power Of Nightmares

It does not take a leap in logic to understand that the terrorist fears in the United States are homegrown. That is to say, the real terrorists in our midsts are us.

Tapping your cell phone is just the start.

An article in the Financial Times last year said mobile providers can “remotely install a piece of software on to any handset, without the owner’s knowledge, which will activate the microphone even when its owner is not making a call.”

Site Changes

I’ve been busy the past few days making changes to the website. The 2008 prices are coming out in just a few days, and I’m finding this is taking up plenty of my time.

Also, there are a lot of minor changes that are being incorporated into the existing site, corrections, etc. This is always a time I’m pretty busy with the new year changes and I’m not updating the blog much.

Open Thread

Sent in by Lonewolf, this puts things into perspective like nothing else could: The Largest Known Star

That’s pretty cool, makes our problems (and self-righteousness) seem pretty darned small.

Ok, that’s enough fun, back to your regularly scheduled programming of doom and terrible gloom:

Today I received a tip by a fellow writer that KBR (Kellogg Brown & Root, Inc.), a subsidiary of Halliburton, was behind the creation of Senate Bill S 1959, otherwise known as the “Thought Crime Prevention Bill”, or by its legal designation, the “Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007.” I wasn’t able to make a solid connection that indicated KBR was actually behind the introduction of S 1959, but what I did find demonstrates we are likely approaching the final days when Homeland Security (sic) implements their “final solution” which DHS has labeled as “EndGame.”

Wow!! American Indians Secede From the United States!!

Yeah!! I think this is a great idea!

And it’s for real too.

WASHINGTON (AFP) “” The Lakota Indians, who gave the world legendary warriors Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, have withdrawn from treaties with the United States, leaders said Wednesday.

We are no longer citizens of the United States of America and all those who live in the five-state area that encompasses our country are free to join us,” long-time Indian rights activist Russell Means told a handful of reporters and a delegation from the Bolivian embassy, gathered in a church in a run-down neighborhood of Washington for a news conference.

Teaching The Little Terrorists

Within the boundaries of the continental United States, there are according to the US government and Homeland Security statistics, millions of potential terrorists walking around in our midst.

These would-be terrorists have long been the primary targets of propaganda and extremism by various groups and elements within the United States, however this problem is not limited to just the USA, but is in fact found in every country of the world.
