Buildup to War

It’s looking more and more likely that there will be some kind of pissing match taking place, engaging U.S. forces against North Korea.

A second ballistic missile test has been fired – with a second failure.

North Korea has huge armaments and a very large army, that is far larger then the U.S. forces.

If war breaks out, it will mean tens of thousands (minimum) dead. Probably a lot more then this. And the sheer bat-crazy insanity of North Korea’s leader would probably mean nuclear weapons and kamikaze type attacks on South Korea and anything else they can reach with their missiles, bombs or bodies.[...] Read More

Environmental collapse or sustainable future?

I wish this article about young people and their view of the future went into a lot more detail. Unfortunately it doesn’t, and is typical of what is getting published these days on major news sites.

There is pessimism among the younger generation, but also hope “for a sustainable future”. I have to wonder if they really know what those words mean.[...] Read More

Massive Tree Losses Expected in Southern California

This is yet one more story of massive tree losses occurring from climate change. This time, Southern California. The cause – bugs and drought.

Up to 38% of the trees are expected to be lost – in just 3 counties. Tree loss means a lot of other losses too. Forest fires increase (due to dead and dying trees), critical shade habitat is lost, surface winds increase, soil erosion increases, hillside slump and fall and so on.[...] Read More

Oil Companies Vastly Underreporting Volitile Organic Compounds Being Released

Researchers in Canada have finally gotten around to actually inspecting the amount of volatile organic compounds being released from surface mining activities. Prior to this, they simply relied upon the measurements provided by the oil companies themselves.

Well, duh! I’ve yet to read of a single, ethical oil company that has not engaged in deception, lying, coverup, fraud and even murder. Their track record of truth is absolutely horrendous. If and when they’re every actually held accountable for their actions (after DECADES of litigation), they pay armies of lawyers to forestall any penalties, fines or fees levied by the courts. In the meanwhile, they’re busy raping, polluting, poisoning and destroying the planet – and the living contingent of life within this sphere.[...] Read More

Contraction Leads To Collapse

Yesterday, I came across something of interest. The claim was that a civilization like ours requires a EROEI (energy return on energy invested) ratio of 30:1 in order to survive in its present form.

Oil extraction used to be at an EROEI of 100:1 – 100 barrels of oil extracted for ever 1 barrel of oil expended. And now, I read where it is just 5:1 for unconventional oil (tar sands, shale extraction).[...] Read More

Paranoid and Delusional

If Donald Trump has a dangerous mental illness, according to a group a psychiatrists, what does this say about his supporters?

Mental health experts claimed the President was “paranoid and delusional”, and said it was their “ethical responsibility” to warn the American public about the “dangers” Mr Trump’s psychological state poses to the country.[...] Read More

The Loss of Intelligence

Most of the stupidstitious will refuse intelligence and knowledge, having embraced superstition and fear.

They can’t accept the fact that their world view is utterly false. It is not based upon facts, evidence or reality, it is based upon fear, fantasy and imagination.

It’s pretty clear that this has now created a massive conflict for the future of humanity. Entire nations are now being redirected back to the Dark Ages of stupidstitions. The result is horrifying.[...] Read More

Clathrate Gun Fired? A Perfect Storm of Failure

Phys.org has a new article on the methane clathrate issue. It’s an easy read – suggest you read this before finishing my post here.

I’m going to jump right to the point, assuming you’ve now read the article. It is this quote:

“We are now witnessing early warning signs of major methane release. If it gets out of control, there will be nothing humans can do to prevent the planet overheating quite rapidly.”[...] Read More
