I’ve been doing some research on the Internet Research Agency (IRA), or Russian troll farm. There’s no doubt at all that Russian trolling of social media, websites, articles and commentary has reached a fever pitch. I’m still trying to discern the overall goal of this activity – but it might just be too obvious, meaning that “division” is what it is all about. Divide Americans (and other countries) and make them disbelieve everything, angry at everyone and distrustful of everyone.
I almost don’t want to write this article, because every time I do something like this, it never goes well, although it should if people were truly interested in learning. But we are no longer dealing with people who are healthy with their perception and acceptance of reality. Everything to them is “fake news” now if it challenges their preconceived bias (and ignorance). So you can’t actually tell them or share with them anything – nothing gets past their biased filtering system. And if you DO try to shed some “real truth” on a topic or subject – it generally backfires.
I’ve finally come to realize that the many decades that I have now spent publishing words, stories, research and articles online has been an enormous waste of my time and my life. That is not to say that it hasn’t been informative, entertaining, educational or even appreciated – by me and by readers, which it has been. But it has come at an enormous cost of “life spent” that will never be gotten back.
Another video worth watching and contemplating:
This article contains numerous misrepresentations and omissions.
a) Global fisheries are already down over 50% NOW.
b) A temperature rise of 4C will result in a catastrophic collapse of civilization.
c) A 9.6C increase will literally mean human extinction (long before).
d) The resulting food chain collapse @4C or even 9C will mean massive species extinction of all mammals. It is also extremely unlikely that any fish will survive at the higher temperatures.
Be prepared to get your stupid on. The Atlantic discusses the trends and changes that have occurred in America.
The facts presented might surprise you. I do recommend you find the time to read this article all the way through. There are some real nuggets of observable truth in there. I don’t agree with a few of the statements of facts made, but the rest is spot-on.
You need to dig a little (read) to find this nugget in this article:
Deaths from heatwaves were projected to increase by 5,400 percent, coastal foods by 3,780 percent, wildfires by 138 percent, river floods by 54 percent and windstorms by 20 percent. European heatwave deaths could skyrocket: climate study
Heatwaves are expected to do the worst damage, jumping from 11 people per million currently to about 700 per million.
I have been warning about this sort of development for years:
In South Asia, a region of deep poverty where one-fifth of the world’s people live, new research suggests that by the end of this century climate change could lead to summer heat waves with levels of heat and humidity that exceed what humans can survive without protection.
