Mind Weapons as Art

I’m not an artist, but a lot of other people are, and they have a few things to say

I especially enjoyed the ‘Merica depiction… and the zombie apocalypse. And Trump is too fat to run anywhere (except maybe to the buffet table)… and the ignorant society melted into the chair…

Stop hoping we can fix global warming by pulling carbon out of the air – Scientists warn of “dire consequences for food production or the biosphere”

Desdemona posted this title and topic (which I highly recommend you read), a topic near and dear to the message I’ve long stated here. The future means starvation – for billions.

Nobody is listening to this message. It’s rather stunning.

Even the majority of scientists themselves are really not listening. Obviously, a few are, but it’s an appalling small number.[...] Read More

Manufacturing Myth

Over many years (no less then 3 decades and more!), I have had to take stock in myself and what it is that I believe. Usually, this follows a established pattern of awareness, learning, discarding, modification and adoption. What I believe and hold to be true has had out of necessity and of evidence, had to change.

We all tend to ‘believe’ in whatever actually works for us. It has to fit our lives reasonably well, otherwise we are simply too uncomfortable to change much. But when it does, it does not always last indefinitely, especially if there is new information or awareness that challenges the belief.[...] Read More

Americans at High Risk of Nuclear Disasters

This is a topic that generates little real interest in the majority of the American population. Nuclear energy is very risky. Researchers from Princeton University and the Union of Concerned Scientists, the article argues that NRC inaction leaves the public at high risk from fires in spent-nuclear-fuel cooling pools at reactor sites.

My own state recently had a nuclear emergency, which as you might expect, is not over. The entire Eastern seaboard is another high-risk region.[...] Read More

The Country Gives Up

Since President Dumpf declared climate change a hoax, he’s been busy making sure that this critical topic to human survival is ignored as much as possible.

Predictably, many Americans are in lock-step with this clown. Parroting the same useless and irrelevant arguments as their distinguished leader, the topic of climate change remains hated.

In some circles, it was hard to predict that this would be the direction the nation would take. The American media has been quite complicit with climate change denialism. But it’s not like that elsewhere, just here.[...] Read More

When The Permafrost Fails…

When the permafrost fails, you can expect this to happen: Arctic stronghold of world’s seeds flooded after permafrost melts.

Does this mean that the world’s food supply is in trouble? Well sure. It’s always been in peril. The impacts of climate change are going to absolutely wreck food production.

If they can’t get these seeds safe, it means that if these crop species are lost for whatever reason, there is no backup plan either. I’ve looked. You might be shocked to learn that there really isn’t a plan to provide food if we lose our existing production capacity. These seeds are being set aside in case of catastrophic disaster (blight, insects, whatever) for crop diversity, but they’re not considered to be a part of a global backup plan for feeding the world during climate collapse. That plan does not actually exist.[...] Read More

Miles Of Ice Collapsing Into the Sea

Cool articles (no pun intended) – Miles of Ice Collapsing Into the Sea

Graphic representation showing just how much and how incredible the amount of ice flow really is in Antarctica.

Unstoppable disintegration. And rising seas, world wide.

Oh, and there’s this – Doomsday Glacier

Catchy title. Won’t mean a thing to the distracted people of this planet. But it should. I don’t even think an imminent asteroid strike would raise much interest.[...] Read More

May Day

May 14, 2017. The weather around here cannot decide if it is spring or winter. The grass is green now, but it is very cold. Burning wood again. It’s dropping to near-freezing at night.

It’s been the strangest, coldest and wettest spring that I’ve ever seen. I haven’t been paying much attention to what is happening elsewhere, but I heard Kansas had a freak snowstorm and lost nearly the entire wheat crop. Flooding up in Canada.[...] Read More
