Climate Manifesto

Pretty sure I’ve not published this link before: Climate Manifesto. Plenty there to get your doom on for the weekend. The gist of it is it’s bad and it’s going to get worse, and all of our dickering around pretty much ensures our extinction.

A few comments: There is no saving civilization. I’m pretty sure that there are already survival “caves” being constructed (I’ve been invited). I also don’t agree with several most of the action plan points. Their weak, ineffective and wrong-headed and will fail to accomplish enough.

    MEANWHILE , the white horse gallops faster, ever closer …
    today’s example: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/863896

    just a matter of time before the mar-1 gene is incorporated into other bacterial spp.
    – first quadrupeds, then bipeds
    = End of Age of Antibiotics (Act 3) .

    Yet another guarantee of near-term Die-Off
    Help me lord! I lost count.
    How many ways over are dumb misery monkeys (with smartphones) fkn over?

        "First US Case of E coli Resistant to Last-Resort Antibiotic"
        Robert Lowes | May 26, 2016

        Researchers have spotted the first known instance of bacteria impervious to the last-resort antibiotic colistin in the United States, exacerbating fears of superbugs that can turn an ordinary infection deadly.

        The case involves a 49-year-old woman treated at a clinic in April for a urinary tract infection. A urine culture revealed a strain of Escherichia coli that was later found to be resistant to colistin. The findings were published online today in Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy.

        In a speech at the National Press Club today, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said the study is a call to develop new antibiotics and use them wisely.

        "The medicine cabinet is empty for some patients," said CDC Director Thomas Frieden, MD, MPH. "It is the end of the road for antibiotics unless we act urgently."

        What is even more alarming about the case of the Pennsylvania woman is that the E coli became resistant to colistin not through mutation, but by acquiring a snippet of DNA called a plasmid that carries the resistance-conferring gene. Such plasmids easily spread from bacterium to bacterium.

        "The recent discovery of a plasmid-borne colistin-resistance gene, mcr-1, heralds the emergence of truly pan-drug resistant bacteria," write the authors, all associated with Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland.

        Although the authors say this is the first report of mcr-1 in the United States, the colistin-resistance gene has surfaced in bacteria in other countries, notably China.

        The Pennsylvania woman had not reported any travel during the previous 5 months. The study does not describe her current condition.

        "Continued surveillance to determine the true frequency for this gene in the USA is critical," the authors write.

        In his speech today, Dr Frieden described colistin as the only antibiotic left "for what I call the nightmare bacteria, carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae (CRE)."

        It turns out that the Pennsylvania woman''s infection was not resistant to carbapenem antibiotics, another CDC official told Medscape Medical News. However, Christopher Braden, MD, deputy director of the agency's National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, warned that the plasmid-borne colistin-resistance gene could transfer to CRE or any other superbug, making them deadlier.

        The CDC and the US Department of Defense are working with the Pennsylvania Department of Health (DPH) to investigate the case of colistin-resistant E coli, according to a DPH news release. The DPH said that state law prevents it from disclosing specific details about the inquiry or the patient.

    Rant drive online, engage:

    They (article) may be fighting an imaginary battle but they lost that fkn war at least 100 years ago. They’d be better-off offering fresh fruit daily to Brahma, Ganesh, Shiva, and/or Vishnu – and/or licking Geezuz’s butt hole.

    This is ‘like’ the captive ‘errorists’ (victims) held in Guantanamo believing that they are still waging an effective Jihad albeit in a Caribbean paradise. Akin to the (great great grand-)”Sons of the Confederacy” believing that the Civil War (1.0) continues to this very day (without placing any shot in their cannon/muskets).

    The Farce is always stronger when supported by the Force (of money aka greed). This article and all similar noises is PURE unmitigated wanton delusion amplified by arrogant willful ignorance masquerading as rational ‘solution’ (hopium).

    The only possible solution to the myriad problem(s) of humanity is NO FKN humans.

    We bipeds do not ‘have’ any fkn problem. We have only predicament compounded by viral exponential predicament, otherwise understood as inevitability, as in mathematical certitude. The ‘Power of Pretend’ has never ‘solved’ anything for anyone ever. We bipeds ARE the predicament. Predicaments have consequences. Consequences are outcomes. Outcomes are terminal. Terminal means dead.

    Event Horizon approaching. Threshold imminent.

      You definitely need to read Ligotti’s book (http://www.amazon.com/Conspiracy-against-Human-Race-Contrivance/dp/0984480277).

      Our ‘assignment’ of values, morals, certitude, etc., is species-centric, intentionally designed by us to benefit only us (allegedly). By definition then, all problems that we can perceive, no matter what they are, are “human problems”. There are no other problems anywhere in the Universe. But our problems have now become predicaments (no solution, for us). Which in reality means problem solved, because this means no more humans. We self-extinguish in some kind of conflagration of ineptitude, indifference and arrogance. What remains of the Earth will be fine without us.

      In many ways, it’s humorous to witness how we struggle against ourselves, creating conflict, claiming preeminence and even divine preference, only to belatedly discover that it will all be totally meaningless and always was. When you first used the term ‘misery monkeys’ this is what I thought and still do. We’re great at inflicting misery, but quite lousy at embracing anything else.

      A bit dated. Hopium abounds. Fast forward all this to 2030. He did get the comments about the food supply correct. I’ll reiterate: starvation comes first, or rather high prices, shortages, extremely high prices, more shortages, then totally unaffordable (except for the rich), then unavailable, period. Food hoarding will be outlawed. Meanwhile drought, heatwaves and extreme weather will kill thousands, but the real die-off will come from lack of food and water, resource wars and the unknown elephant in the room, pandemic (planned or otherwise). It won’t be a fun time, certainly not much to look forward to.
