The Myth of Human Progress and the Collapse of Complex Societies

Hedges, all fired up:

Listen to the words. The anger, resentment, disgust, rage and loathing.

Oh wait, I’m supposed to be talking about Hedges and his speech. Well, he’s in a growing company of Americans that really have had enough of this shit.

I covered the collapse of complex societies years ago – and have patiently waited (at times) for this one too, to collapse.[...] Read More

Severe Disconnect From Reality

If you want to get your barf on, Scribbler’s article on the Tesla 3 release ought to do it – A Beautiful Machine to Change the World — Model 3 to Transform Global Automobile Markets, Open Pathway For Rapid Energy Transition (I do not link to Scribbler because he censors comments – a despicable practice he endorses to support his false narrative).[...] Read More

Selling The Apocalypse

Salon has an article about doomsday preppers and the hucksters behind this movement. Some may not agree, but the article is dead right. I’ve publicly come out against the false reasons that so many have embraced and the liars in the movement that are behind this. And I was right and still am – not a single ‘event’ that was claimed happened. But the prepper movement has died and hucksters are desperate to find another way to shove their products at you while fleecing your pockets.[...] 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

The Politics of Pretend

Arctic News: Over 20 Of The Most Terrifying Images on 2016 (already posted in the recent comments, but I didn’t have the rest of this article ready).

Warning of 10°C increases within 10 years fails all calls to action. It’s been clear for some time now that nothing will cause us to act, so let me discuss this observation:

There is a lot of talk of what it is going to mean to scientists, Americans and the world at large to live under the Trump Administration. Within climate, environmental and human rights groups, there is a plenty of hand-wringing, finger pointing and complaining going on right now (where WERE you people two years ago?).[...] Read More

Failing To Comprehend

A few quotations and how even the ‘informed’ are still failing to comprehend the true outcome of what these measurements and observations really mean:

Are Jellyfish Going To Take Over The Ocean?

“The thing that grabs me the most is how something so diaphanous, so brainless — so incredibly, unbelievably simple — can cause so much devastation and so much death and so much harm.”[...] Read More

Crisis of Conscience

Hot Whopper has a Dilbert Whopper article (as in Scott Adams, the Dilbert cartoonist) worth reading through (including the comments). Hot Whopper also shared a very good rebuttal from Variable Varability – “Scott Adams: The Non-Expert Problem and Climate Change Science“.

I would not have been so polite. Adams “model” points he used are red herrings. Ultimately, “what the models say” is irrelevant. Actual, on the ground, real-life measurements, taken over hundreds of years are empirical measurements. They do not tell a “story” or a unlearned “opinion” or represent a corporate interest, they tell the real facts. This is where denialists fail so often and so badly, they don’t use facts and they don’t like empirical evidence either.[...] Read More

Julian Assange Is (probably) Dead, Captured or Escaped

Disclaimer: This is simply my opinion, based upon published stories, events and alleged sightings. I cannot prove the conclusions I’ve reached at this time. The facts (transpired events) are however, the facts. These events did happen. When pieced together, they present a disturbing conclusion.

Lacking “proof of life”, there is every reason to suspect that Julian Assange of Wikileaks is dead, captured or escaped. Since his disappearance, there has been no current, actual proof of life from any source.[...] Read More

Tomorrow Will Not Be Like Today

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.[...] Read More
