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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.”

Rising Faster Then Expected

Sea level rise is happening faster then expected – so don’t pay any attention to the idiot denier websites (and their commentary). I’ve seen some of the pure garbage that they churn out. It’s enough to make a thinking person go mad.

Now they’re saying it’s 8 feet (but it will be more) by 2100:

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) just reported that the sea level is rising faster than expected in the northeastern United States and other specific regions. As climate change worsens, the global sea level could rise by eight feet before the year 2100.

BREAKING: US drops LARGEST non-nuclear bomb in combat for FIRST time

Unconfirmed (from my end) – BREAKING: US drops LARGEST non-nuclear bomb in combat for FIRST time

If true – and it is, but I’m busy right now – this is a huge bomb. We’ve all probably heard about these in the movies when they choose to wipe out an entire town or small city.

Update: actually, this is a bunker-buster type bomb, designed to penetrate deep underground.

Is This The Start of Runaway Global Warming?

This is an essay by William P Hall, President, Kororoit Institute, Evolutionary Biology of Species and Organisms.

The observations show a growing risk to human society from runaway global warming, and they beg explanation.

This essay focuses on observations of what appears to be the start of runaway warming in the Arctic that may have profound effects on global climates over the next few years; and a plausible cause – the warming driven release of methane gas from permafrost forming a strong greenhouse cap over the Arctic Ocean.

More Drums of War

Make of this what you will: Vladimir Putin says US is preparing to bomb Syrian capital and will blame devastation on Bashar-al Assad’s forces

And: Putin says expects ‘fake’ gas attacks to discredit Syria’s Assad

I’ve not yet heard of any more evidence regarding the ‘proof’ of nerve agents being used, just those 3 ‘suspected cases’ when there were allegedly hundreds more victims. Have you? Maybe I missed it, I’m kinda busy here updating the Food Assets website with new images.

Up to Two-Thirds of SoCal Beaches May Disappear by 2100, USGS Predicts

Once again, the predictions you’ll read about here are woefully underestimated. But even at these low estimates, this might raise some consternation (and not much else):

Up to Two-Thirds of SoCal Beaches May Disappear by 2100, USGS Predicts

In a new study released on March 27, 2017, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) predicts that 31 to 67 percent of Southern California’s beaches may be completely eroded away by the year 2100, based on sea level rise of one to two meters. Once the sand is gone, exposed bedrock may be all that’s left.

Running On Empty – Famine Taking It’s Toll

Not much in the American news about this, but it is one of the world’s largest humanitarian disasters in history unfolding right now.

Running On Empty

There’s very little interest in Western nations to stories like this. The dead and dying go ignored so easily.

I just ate my lunch and looking at the left-overs, I wonder about how we all take food for granted so easily. There are millions of people that don’t.

Here Is What We Are Up Against

I’m going to share some news on what scientists “think” we need to do to avoid catastrophic climate change. I already know (and can prove) that this is all wrong, but to put this into perspective, it’s important that you know what they’re claiming:

In order to keep the climate from warming beyond 2°C, “to avoid the worst risks of a hotter planet”, these things MUST be done –

Changes

This is the new picture on the Bureau of Land Management website – be patient, it may load slowly:

If you don’t know what this is – it is a giant lump of coal.

Previously, the BLM showed a nice picture of range land with a couple of backpackers in the foreground. Now, it’s TRUiMPhantly showing a lump of dirty coal.

We live in an INSANE world. And it’s getting rapidly worse.
