I don’t have a tv/ radio/ or buy newspapers, haven’t for around 25 years now, so am rather out of touch with what is happening in the world, particularly how information is distributed/ presented. But what I can discern is that each day there are potentially eight billion stories (the number of our species), an audience of almost as many, a lot of new media channels seeking to make capital out of all that, and vested interest with a similar need to control it.
So it came as rather a surprise to see and hear on a tv in a bar recently, not only the president of the USA, Donald Trump, and some of his ministers, but Teresa May and her cronies too. And what struck me from this, above all, was their uncanny similarity to MAX HEADROOM (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYdpOjletnc). For those of you who missed this excellent (of its time) series, it featured the first animated tv personality. 31 years later, with all the advances in technology, our world leaders still appear to have the same wooden presentation and lack of sincerity/ believability.
This is because we are living in the era of fake news.
In a previous blog I reckoned BREXIT was probably nothing to do with the EU, but a smokescreen for something a lot more sinister. Well it is virtually upon us now and those reasons are finally becoming apparent. That all along there has been a deliberate process of wearing down the masses (from rising up), using hate and fear. That parliament (all parties) will now proceed to dismantle the welfare state/ democracy, in favour of a US model. And what even I could never have guessed at, why? Well here is one possibility.
That those with money/ power/ and information know, that given our failure to do stop the exponential rise in global population and the accompanying ecological destruction caused by all these people wanting more and more of the planet’s precious resources, nature is going to respond in some dramatic way very soon. And that they want to be somewhere safe when that happens.
One of the (many) possible events they already know about is the following, reproduced here by kind permission of the author, Malcolm Light, a geologist and expert on climate change. Ideally one should accompany it with THE SPECIALS singing ENJOY YOURSELF (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0t2spzlgCAI), I’ll end though with a quote by Charles Darwin: It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one most adaptable to change.
GLOBAL EXTINCTION WITHIN 18 – 34 MONTHS
Humanity is facing the final, western corporate capitalist, fossil fuel initiated, catastrophic Arctic methane hydrate destabilization and Permian style methane blowout – firestorm that will culminate in 1 to 4 years (2020 to 2023). We will all be boiled alive like lobsters in a massively humid atmosphere and converted into stardust. Recent data from the Arctic confirm an exponential rise in the temperature anomaly of the Arctic stratospheric methane which is now 65 degrees C above the normal, while it was only 20 degrees C above the normal, 6 to 8 years ago.
Using this data and the recent Piomass (2017) estimates of the minimum Arctic ice shelf volume it is now possible to estimate the timing of the Arctic – Permian style methane blowout firestorm more accurately and the events are shown in the Figure below.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
The start date of the Permian style global extinction event may be only 18 to 19 months away. This says that you must complete your bucket list of unfulfilled dreams before July to August 2020. A bucket list is a list of unfulfilled actions you need to complete before you die (“kick the bucket”). Do not worry about dying as it comes to all of us in the end, only this time we will all be going together. The Earth will soon after this lose all its oceans and become “Venus Like”.
Empathy is organic evolution’s key to group survival in an uncaring inorganic universe. Enjoy yourselves and be excellent to each other in these last days and hours on the only remaining habitable planet in this solar system.
