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…
“Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.” by anewkindofhuman
Desdemona has a new article, Massive Permafrost Thaw Documented in Canada, Portends Huge Carbon Release, with the original article here. I don’t comment on Desdemona anymore, Jim started censoring commentary some time back.
This type of melting was expected and would account for the escalating levels of methane being detected. Once you grasp the scale of what’s happening, you’ll quickly realize that it is virtually impossible for this process to reverse itself. You’d have to have a seriously long deep-freeze to restore the frozen soil temperatures – and then you’d still be left with the billions of tons of CO₂ and methane still left in the atmosphere, raising temperatures higher and higher.
A very welcome (and timely) donation from Charles (France) of $400 was received! Thank you Charles!
I was planning on closing down the blog and shutting off the Internet at the end of this month, but this has made it possible for me to keep the lights on here for a while longer.
Two books were passed into my hands to read, which I’d like to recommend:
I’ve issued an alert to whoever will find this and take the time to read it: Climate Change Will Devastate Civilization
Every day, I’m trying to digest more and more articles on climate change, sea level rise and environmental collapse. I can’t keep up. It’s usually about 50 – 70 articles a day pouring in. If ever there was a time to start screaming and sounding the alarm bells, it’s right now.
LIFE Project – Strategic Initiative for Reduced Human Survival
Profound impacts on global climate, ecosystems and human society caused by climate change and the resulting effects on human civilization are projected to be serious to severe throughout the entire world. Extensive study of the published literature and science underscores a distinct possibility that human extinction may even occur, along with nearly all of the life within the living biosphere. The Life Project proposes creation of protected bio-regional zones and habitation for human and biological survival (non-human life) on every habitable continent selected to ensure continuity of life for the human race and as many other species as possible.
I was recently asked by a young woman what my definition of freedom was. I thought for a moment and replied, “Without coercion”. She got quiet and pondered the meaning of what I meant.
I do not support the State. Coercion is a defining principle in any controlling entity. I recognize the need for the State, but that does not change my opinion about it. The State is most likely the logical outcome of a coercive and combined effort of former individuals who established their definitions of “common interests”. It is self-perpetuating, generation after generation, an entity unto itself, but neither alive or dead.
I spotted this over on Desdemona Despair, but the original article is here which you should really look at and ponder what this means. The police, under the instructions of the Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, are engaged in a genocidal war, killing thousands and thousands of people in the Philippines.
This is why the people should never be disarmed. I’m not endorsing drug use, but whenever political power is used to wield oppressive and deadly force over a population, the people need to rise up and put a stop to it themselves. If you read the article, you will swiftly realize that there is no lawful actions taking place, no due process, no trials, no justice, just outrageous murder by police summary execution style for thousands of people. That’s genocide.
This is what Amerika is facing (again) if the Whore of Babylon is (s)Elected: When Iraq Was Clinton’s War.
If you feel as if you do not have choice in the upcoming (s)Election, you’d be right. The media is in league with the power brokers of this fucked up country and has made it perfectly clear to all of us who they intend to (s)Elect (for us). I don’t know if they can pull it off. But I do know for certain that the future won’t be anything like today.
