Living Primitively

I have long believed after many years of study, that mankind is going to revert back to Stone Age living. This will be the inevitable outcome of the depletion of global energy supplies (oil, coal, nature gas, uranium).

Not long ago, I came across a quote (posted here) that pointed out that we have long since mined all the easily available minerals and resources found in the Earth. This is true, the rates of return on our discovery and extraction efforts is greatly diminished, and it will NEVER get any better.

Exclusive: No ice at the North Pole

It seems unthinkable, but for the first time in human history, ice is on course to disappear entirely from the North Pole this year.

The disappearance of the Arctic sea ice, making it possible to reach the Pole sailing in a boat through open water, would be one of the most dramatic ““ and worrying ““ examples of the impact of global warming on the planet. Scientists say the ice at 90 degrees north may well have melted away by the summer. No Ice

Millionaire and Modern Slavery

This probably happens a lot more then we realize, this time the dirtbags got caught:

A millionaire who inflicted years of abuse on two Indonesian housekeepers held as virtual slaves in her Long Island mansion was sentenced Thursday to 11 years in prison.

Varsha Sabhnani, 46, was convicted with her husband in December on a 12-count federal indictment that included forced labor, conspiracy, involuntary servitude and harboring aliens.

Starship Gardena

In the book, “Starship Gardenena“, (warning: plot spoiler) author Michael Krispin describes a futuristic world that is confined to a spacecraft hurtling through space.

The Hopelexians having left their home planet long before due to resource depletion, outfitting a very large near-planet sized ship with a living biodome environment. Contributing to every conceivable need they could envision, this living ship was launched through space in a last ditch effort to save their species by locating a suitable planet for habitation.

Senator Dodd’s Speech at the U.S. Senate

Suggested reading, just so you can keep everything in proper perspective:

But when you’re through, the facts will still be waiting for you. Controlled death. Outsourced torture. Secret prisons. Month-long sleep deprivations. The president’s personal power to hold whomever he likes for as long as he’d like. It is as if we woke up in the middle of some Kafka-esque nightmare.

Oceans In Collapse

The number of ocean dead zones has grown from 44 areas reported in 1995 to more than 400, with some of the worst oxygen-starved areas extending over 22,000 sq km.

Recent figures from the United Nations Environment Program estimate fertilisers, sewage and other other pollutants, combined with the impact of climate change, have led to a doubling in the number of oxygen-deficient dead zones every decade since the 1960s.  Oxygen Starved Oceans Rapidly Dying

Quote

It has often been said that, if the human species fails to make a go of it here on the Earth, some other species will take over the running. In the sense of developing intelligence this is not correct. We have or soon will have, exhausted the necessary physical prerequisites so far as this planet is concerned. With coal gone, oil gone, high-grade metallic ores gone, no species however competent can make the long climb from primitive conditions to high-level technology. This is a one-shot affair. If we fail, this planetary system fails so far as intelligence is concerned. The same will be true of other planetary systems. On each of them there will be one chance, and one chance only. — Sir Fred Hoyle, Of Men and Galaxies, 1964

The right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed

Today’s decision by the black robed thugs still demonstrates that “shall not be infringed” is still not understood, even though most gun owners are going to claim this interpretation of today’s events as a “victory”.

Shall not be infringed means that the Federal government and the State’s cannot infringe upon your individual rights to “keep and bear arms”, PERIOD. Yet this decision “probably leaves most firearms laws intact“.

Exxon Fucks Over Alaskans With the Help of The Supreme Court

The black robed thugs pretending to rule over the law just slashed the Exxon Valdez damage aware by several billion dollars. This is from the same company that posts record quarterly profits of $11.7 billion dollars.

This is unbelievable. The Supreme Court is corrupt to the core, the jury of our peers (the people) decided it should be $5 billion over a decade ago, and a federal appeals court in 1994 slashed it to $2.5 billion. Exxon has been dragging it’s feet for forever (in relative terms to the lives it has destroyed). Now it’s going to pay out a measly $15,000 per person (chicken feed, especially in today’s dollars).

Peak Phosphorous Too!

Phosphorous may not seem like “much”, but it is a critical element used in many different products, including food production. A global phosphorous battle may be “on” now, as prices have risen 700% in the past 14 months.

“Peak phosphorus”, say scientists, could hit the world in just 30 years. Crop-based biofuels, whose production methods and usage suck phosphorus out of the agricultural system in unprecedented volumes, have, researchers in Brazil say, made the problem many times worse. Already, India is running low on matches as factories run short of phosphorus; Scientist Warn Of Lack Of Vital Phosphorous

Something For Nothing

This might be remembered as one of America’s first food riots:

Scuffles began breaking out around 7 a.m. with people shoving, pushing, and taking a door off its hinges, bringing police in dozens of cars, authorities said.

There were no serious injuries or arrests, police spokeswoman Anne E. Schwartz said. Nor did police ask people to leave.

Charline Britt was crushed against a door and passed out. She felt feet stomp on her back as people rushed into the center when the doors opened at 8 a.m., she said. Scuffles for Wisconsin Food Vouchers

Climatic Genocide

This a great article.

I asked them if the sea levels were rising here. Rezaul Karim Chowdry, a 34-year-old who looked like he is in his fifties, said plainly: “Of course. In the past 30 years, two-thirds of this island has gone under the water. I had to abandon my house. The land has gone into the sea.” Immediately all the other men start to recount their stories. They have lost their houses, their land, and family members to the advance. Bangladesh is set to disappear under the waves

Put oil firm chiefs on trial, says James Hansen

James Hansen, one of the world’s leading climate scientists, will today call for the chief executives of large fossil fuel companies to be put on trial for high crimes against humanity and nature, accusing them of actively spreading doubt about global warming in the same way that tobacco companies blurred the links between smoking and cancer. Put oil firm chiefs on trial, says leading climate change scientist

YOU. WILL. NOT. BE. ABLE. TO. GET. FOOD.

From Culture Change site:

You. Will. Not. Be. Able. To. Get. Food. Need this be spelled out any more plainly? It is time to consider that the stage has been set for petroleum-induced famine.

We have “innocently” accommodated rising population with greater and greater food production via technology and the profit motive. But now we have run out of room to grow, as biotechnology, for example, has severe limitations — major ones being petroleum dependence and topsoil loss. The biggest wild card for our existence is climate change, as we see with floods and other extreme weather affecting our food supply.
