The Food of Civilization

The main point, indeed the entire purpose of every civilization throughout all of human history is to ensure a full belly for its participants. This essential need for all human life is the primary and fundamental driving force for the creation of everything that we know as civilization.  Roads, cities, villages and towns, highways, freeways, airports, strip malls, business centers, industry, fabrication, mining and forestry — it has all been built and constructed so that humans could have full bellies and enough to eat — and the assurances that come tomorrow, it will be the same.

Open Thread

An open thread, but first a thank you to 10past10 for the blog donation, and Anonymous for the GoFundMe donation. Pretty sure I know who this person is, but your generosity and support is greatly appreciated.

Open threads don’t seem to garner much traffic, but I’ll do this again anyway. I have been desperately trying to gain ranking and traffic with not much success. Either Google is punishing me or the government is or people just don’t have any interest in the topics covered here. I’ve moved onto Facebook as part of this effort. There are additional posts and videos found there that won’t get published here.

The Future Of Food and What the World Can Expect

Worth watching carefully. The future of food and what is unfolding now.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=YToMoNPwTFc

Listen to segment 28:57 – 31:12 if you don’t have time for much else.

This is what the video conveys from Professor Battisti with a few comments of my own:

  • We are on track for 930 ppm CO₂ (business as usual).
  • The ocean will be 3 times more acidic then it is today.
  • Not mentioned in the video (but found elsewhere on this blog) is what this will mean for food from the oceans. 2 billion people depend upon the oceans for their survival. Acidic oceans will lose critical habitat like coral reefs (breeding grounds for fish). By 2050 all food fish are expected to be depleted from the oceans. 90% of the worlds reefs are expected to be dead.

After we stop emitting greenhouse gasses (by some miracle – which I absolutely do not believe will happen under any scenario):

Catastrophe Laid Bare

Read it and weep – for the day draweth nigh: The Great Barrier Reef – Catastrophe Laid Bare

Read the below scientific analysis baring in mind the conservative default. I believe that they all know in their hearts that the reef systems on this planet are doomed to collapse and very soon, taking with it the oceanic incubator that forms the basis of the marine food web, that produces 50% of the human populations protein and 70% of the planets oxygen.

Pure Hopium – The Revenge of Gore

With a rather ridiculous headlie, Robert Scribbler has lowered the bar of believability once again – “Al Gore’s Revenge — Internal Combustion Engines Stink and This Ridiculously Powerful Electric Turbine Truck Proves It“. I suggest you read it.

Wow. A whole 190 miles between recharges. I’m sure that’s an improvement over current models, but seriously? And ‘tanked fuel’. Hmmm, might that be diesel?

(S)Election Fraud 2016 – The Evidence

The (s)Election fraud of 2016 is well underway. Perhaps you are aware of this, perhaps not. But it will have a huge impact on the next 4 – 8 years in America and on the world.

The list of crimes uncovered so far is quite extensive, affecting tens of millions of voters, including closed polls, missing ballots, missing registrations, wrong ballots, broken machines, miscounts, no paper trail, skewed search results and exit polls and even the media calling the Democratic nomination a entire day ahead of important primaries when nobody had even voted. There is also the superdelagates who decided on their vote as much as 10 months in advance, disenfranchising and nullifying the efforts of tens of millions of voters in the Democratic campaign.

The Hidden Side of Alternative Energy

I found these videos below over on sunweber’s blog and realized that they would ‘say a lot’ about the unsustainable cost of alternative energy. Youtube has a ton more videos on the same topic if you’re interested in researching this further. I’d like you to pay attention to the factory processing and methods and inherent energy requirements to produce these solar powered components as you contemplate what this really means for our energy future.

Are YOU Prepared For Disaster?

Most people should be aware of the huge fires at Ft. McMurry, Alberta and the evacuation of an entire city. Unfortunately, mega-fires are going to become the norm for most locations.

You read that right – most locations. You don’t have to be in the middle of a forest to be effected by higher temperatures and drought conditions. You just need to be anywhere there is flammable fuel and that applies to every city and town in the world.

Media Manipulation and the Superdelegate Mindfuck

Ok, this posts fits right in the Real Narrative points I was raising in my last blog entry.

Please read Journalistic Malpractic.

The evidence is clear, the media is manipulating the (s)Election in favor of Hillary. But this is more then just media manipulation, the media is disenfranchising hundreds of millions of Americans who haven’t even voted yet.

The Real Narrative

I’ve been harping on the ‘false narrative’ off and on for a while now. But what is a false narrative?

A narrative is a story – and like most stories it contains a cast of characters, events, circumstances and a story line. Events that either will (future tense) or have (past tense) taken place. But like all stories, a narrative isn’t the real thing (real life). It’s fiction, the ‘telling‘ of the parts of the story the author wants to share.

New Study Predicts an Intolerably Hot World

Posted, but worth making a separate entry here: New Study Predicts an Intolerably Hot World

Not the best article and some really inaccurate statements. I suspect the editors refused to allow the real facts to be accurately published. There are numerous dishonest claims here. Listed in order as shown in the article:

  • a) There will be no great grandchildren (for most of us) as humans will be gone by the time frames claimed (read on).
  • b) 6.4 to 9.5 degrees Celsius are unsurvivable temperatures (for anything living), vastly exceeding survivable wet-bulb temperatures. 1 degree Celsius increases atmospheric moisture by 7% (massive storms on a scale not even imaginable). So temperatures are too hot to survive and nothing will due to heat, rain, storms and even drought. We are already seeing extremely dangerous temperatures exceeding survival rates in India right now (long before 2300).
  • c) Sea level trajectories are already over 21 feet by 2100. Far above what this article claims, which means most low-lying coastal cities will be flooded creating over a billion refugees.
  • d) Food supplies will be more then “disrupted”, there won’t be any. Starvation on a global scale will come first before heat-stroke and death by thirst. This is happening now, with 72 million in Africa facing starvation by December (this year) according to published reports.
  • e) The methane hydrate problem is seriously glossed over. A major “methane pulse” to the atmosphere is expected at any time and there are already indications that this is now underway with a dramatic jump in methane levels.
  • f) Climate refugees already number over 100 million (today) and will exceed over 3 billion by 2050, a far greater number then claimed in the article.
  • g) Temperature increases would indeed ‘flatten-out’ over time – on the scale of thousands of years. We don’t have the kind of time left.
  • h) 2015 – 2016 has seen a very dramatic jump in temperature, which now appears to be non-linear, meaning it will acclerate faster and faster by all indications, making these time-frames claimed erroneous at best and disingenuous at worst.
  • i) There is virtually no chance now of “limiting warming” within human lifetimes. Warming is accelerating now beyond human emissions and feed backs due to nature sources now becoming emitters, including such things as albedo feedback (no ice). A blue-ocean event in the Arctic may happens as early as this year (September time frame). This will dramatically increase warming in the Arctic and sets the stage for runaway feed backs, including permafrost melting and methane from organic soils.
  • j) Alternative energy is not-carbon free and studies have shown that it can actually increase emissions. Nor does alternative energy supply enough for human needs, but it does deplete critical and non-replaceable resources and has a very limited time replacement life span on the order of just a few decades. We do not have enough raw materials to continue to replace what is needed while trying to meet increasing needs.
  • k) Carbon fees don’t accomplish anything other then making some richer. All economic activity by any source creates carbon emissions. Money cannot solve climate change, this is a triggered physical process that is now beyond our assumptions of control.
  • l) The many assumptions and claims in this article are intended to persuade readers that we are not in a planetary emergency and what more scientist now believe is an extinction level event (ours). It is well known that a 6th “great extinction” is now underway globally, but the question still be grappled with is “does it include us?” and the evidence says decidedly yes. We have only a few decades at most in order to survive on this planet as temperatures, droughts, extreme weather, starvation and devastation will wipe out life on this planet. This is the greatest threat humanity has ever faced and the evidence has been published in many places including on this blog.

    Greenhouse Gasses Are Accelerating and It’s Trump’s Fault

    The “Donald” has promised to expand oil, coal, fracking and the size of his hairpiece in the latest twist of planet destroying actions:

    Trump: America First on Fossil Fuels, Last on Climate Change

    Totally and utterly unconcerned for any viable habitable future for mankind or the planet, Trump intends to undue anything standing in the way of exploiting the planetary resources even further. The “plan” as it were, is to open up the floodgates and reverse any and all protections of the natural environment, “maximizing production of coal, oil and natural gas.”

    Silver Price Forecast: Silver Could Hit $1,000 Per Ounce, Insider Say

    “I’ve been quoted many times saying I expect to see triple digit silver, and that’s assuming gold doesn’t move. If gold goes to $10,000, then silver will be some ridiculous number… could even be $1,000 silver.” Silver Price Forecast: Silver Could Hit $1,000 Per Ounce, Insider Says

    I wish I had a nickel for every one of these bogus claims being made about gold or silver over the years. This shit just never dies. It’s like an old piece of gum stuck to the bottom of your shoe and you can’t get it off, but if you walk around enough, sure as hell you’re going to get some of this crap stuck to your shoe. Are these people nuts, or what?

    Extinction Graph – We’re closer then you may think

    Temperature Spiral Update

    In case you don’t know – these are not survivable temperatures for humanity – or anything else. These temperatures will trigger irreversible feedbacks causing massive die-off and extinctions. We (humans) die of starvation and drought, the rest of the biosphere does the same (heat stress).

    Note the rapid acceleration of temperature increase once the 1c threshold was passed around the year 2000 (16 years ago).
