It’s been a week (or more) of bad news, disasters and human suffering, with much, much more to come.
This is what collapse looks like.
I’m not going to gloat, or advertise, or say anything other than “what did you expect?” to the people of the world.
I’m still angry and disgusted at the ongoing denial that is still evident even among the affected by these disasters, but frankly, this isn’t my problem. Idiots will believe whatever the hell they want even when they are drowning or being burned out.
You can’t save stupid.
The flooding was not limited to Colorado. It was much worse elsewhere. New Mexico has declared a state-wide disaster. Flooding in Las Vegas, and thousands of homes were lost in Guatemala. And in Russia, tens of thousands were evacuated. The Mexican state of Veracruz has evacuated thousands.
There there is the New Jersey Boardwalk destroyed by fire. And don’t forget the gigantic fire in California…
Tepco has admitted to lying about the Fukushima radiation levels for nearly two years. They also admit that they cannot control this release or stop this in any way, and are completely and totally out of their element. It’s now releasing radiation directly into the Pacific. The Wall Street Journal (pay site) has issued a warning. Here’s a short blurb (free). And this: INTERVIEW/ Lake Barrett: Japan must get ready to release Fukushima water into the sea.
This is a situation which will only get increasingly worse. It doesn’t look like anything can be done to effectively stop this or even clean it up. It’s not even imaginable what hundreds of years of release into the Pacific will do.
And to make matters even worse – the methane release in the Arctic is unprecedented. This is a signal of destabilized methane hydrates. Does anyone need a primer on what this might mean?

It all adds up to what everyone should greatly fear (and acknowledge as a FACT) – unprecedented climate change. The Earth is virtually reeling now from the effects. Fukushima doesn’t qualify, that boondoggle was simply human stupidity built in an earthquake / tsunami zone. Human hubris, i.e, “it won’t happen to us” is not a good policy to bet your life, your country upon.
Here’s what it looks like here across the country:
And from Desdemona, the High Plains Aquifer is drying up. This means less food, grain, cattle, hope, future, humans. Ah yes, let’s just go on pretending everything will be a-ok…. works only in the movies, but Hollywood has written this script.
Ok then. This means the planet is going to kill a great many of us. Inadvertently of course, but as a direct response to what we’ve triggered. Think “cosmic karma” for a moment (or a lifetime) of hilarity and sadness.
It didn’t have to be this way. Goddamn it. Idiots abound. And thus – my next rant (see below).
I’ve been off, busy making other projects / preparations, thus the “quiet time”. I’ve decided to not publish what I’m doing. Please do not ask.
