Watch The World Burn For 16 Years!

In 1989, the U.N. said we have until 1999 to do something about climate change.

In 2007, the U.N. said we have until 2015 to do something about climate change.

In 2014, the U.N. said we have until 2030 to do something about climate change.

We don’t have time for a green energy revolution, even if it were 15 times faster.

The consensus of multi-disciplinary expert opinion is for collapse by 2025 – 2040.

Collapse in 10 years doesn’t mean everything will be great until then.

It doesn’t mean all is well until the first day of the 10th year.

It starts now, as witnessed by political collapse.

The Decomplexity Disentanglement Collapse Singularity Syndrome

Or Some Such So!

We are strip mining the soil of nutrients using fossil fuels to power production. We are poisoning ourselves by genetically, hormoanally and chemically altering our food and environment. Our food and environment is causing 8 year old girls to grow tits, yet our brains are under-developed, thanks to the chemical soup mix that is our environment. To compensate for our undeveloped brains, we take chemicals to calm and pleasure us. We are destroying our planet almost as fast as we are destroying our climate. Scientists are pissing themselves suspecting that El Nino caused earth’s temperature to jump to a higher plateau. Another El Nino in a couple of years will likely do it. We are selling more weapons, killing more innocent civilians and watching more people die than ever before. We are mentally/emotionally retarded as we greedily kill our planet. But, we are also mentally/emotionally retarded as we dream of sustainable farms, renewable energy and peace on earth. We are so fucking retarded, we don’t allow people to use the word, ‘retarded’, which only means, ‘slowed’. Instead we call ourselves, ‘special’. Yea, we’re fucking special alright. Special in the fucking head.

 

p.s. I just made the title up, i’m not really sure wtf?

Stinking Extinction Sales

This guy is funny, he sounds like Dr. Hook’s Medicine Show, but he seems well researched, thanks to his so-called colleagues, so here for you, for your perusal… He who laughs last laughed first, because there are no secrets in the trailer park, if you fart, the news will travel around the park so fast, you’ll hear about it again well before the stink’s gone.

Daily World Drought Map

DroughtRisk_Daily.jpg

Real Time Collapse!

For some reason, my posting called, “2016 World Drought Map” became a bit of a Facebook phenomena. This is likely because the scary world drought map was featured first and topmost in that post, just like you see now. The only problem is, that post was from way back in February. So today, I poked around a bit to find a world drought map that is up to date, and you can’t get more up to date than a daily world drought map. Here is the link to your daily world drought maps.

http://eldoradocountyweather.com/climate/world-maps/world-drought-risk.html

The map featured at the top of this page is from today (July 25, 2016). You’ll notice that severe droughts are occurring in the rainforest and tundra areas of earth. The forest fires in Siberia are so bad that they can be seen from a million miles out in space. Rainforest and tundra droughts are especially bad because when they occur, wildfires can effectively turn those carbon sinks into carbon emitters. Here are a couple of links to the Siberian fires.

Here are today’s current drought conditions from the Global Drought Information System last updated May 30, 2016. While this site is likely more accurate than the daily map, it is always about a month behind.

It is ironic that more vapor and the clash of cold/hot winds will cause killer mega storms, but that rainforests and tundra will burn in a hell storm rain of fire is not exactly almost lost on me…

Why Water Vapour = Doom

Too Much Water In The Air
From now on, we are going to see storms that no human, or proto-human, has ever seen before in our 2 million year old history, thanks to the increased water vapour content in our air. Although this increased vapour content sounds harmless, believe me it’s anything but, just like how a global temperature rise of just 4° C sounds harmless, but is actually lethal to life on earth
 .
Water vapour is the ultimate feedback loop because the 5% increase since 1968 will soon double the radiative solar forcing that hits earth. Water vapor doubles the warming effect of CO2. Repeat, water vapour doubles the warming effect of CO2! And water vapour will increase exponentially. That’s what feedback loops do, go exponential. When you combine the rain bombs of higher water vapour with Hansen’s nightmarish super storm scenario, you will not recognize earth in 20 years time.
 .
We spent the last few years pissing our pants over the methane bomb, while the real harbinger of doom is all around us in the air we breath, the water vapour bomb.
 .
Here is the essential reading
“Super storms are directly related to the ‘water vapour positive feedback loop.’ According to climate scientist Kevin Trenberth, today there is about 5 percent more water vapour in the atmosphere above the oceans than there was in 1968. This is because the oceans have already warmed by 1 degree C (global average).  As the oceans are getting warmer, they also become more acidic and contain less oxygen. Water vapour is of course a greenhouse gas. It leads to the water vapour positive feedback loop that causes dangerous warming amplification over time. A warmer planet holds more moisture in the atmosphere, which leads to more warning, leading to more atmospheric moisture. The increased water vapour roughly doubles the direct radiative forcing. However, the average 5 % increase in water vapour becomes amplified in weather systems because it adds buoyancy to the air flowing into storms, promoting them to become more intense and multiplying the effects. The warm moist air is readily advected onto land and caught up in weather systems as part of the hydrological cycle, where it contributes to more intense precipitation events that are widely observed to be occurring. The problem is not only that water vapour is a powerful greenhouse gas. There is another problem. More atmospheric water vapour means that more energy is trapped in the atmosphere at any given time. According to NASA, as the Earth approaches 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit warming (the increase of global average temperature), the resulting increase in water vapour traps an extra 2 Watts of energy per-square-meter. Given the surface of the Earth, this is an enormous amount of energy, which leads to the amplification of storms, rain bombs and other anomalies. NASA researchers estimate that the water vapour feedback is extraordinarily strong: calculations show that it is capable of doubling the warming due to carbon dioxide. If this is true, the future looks bleak indeed.”

Too Little Water In The Ground
As mountain snow packs decline, and our rivers and lake reservoirs dry up, we turn to groundwater pumping, but groundwater only replenishes itself at 6% of the rate we pump it out. This is the very essence of unsustainability and will lead to violence and food shortages. Why do you think there’s so much killing in Yemen and Syria? Both are severely drought affected.

What You Need to Know About the World’s Water Wars

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2016/07/world-aquifers-water-wars/

The Lung Cancer Of The Planet
The Amazon is facing its third once-in-a-hundred-year drought since 2005. This is now three droughts in 10 years, and the current one is the worst one yet. These severe droughts stunt tree growth so they stop pulling carbon out of the air. When rainforest wildfires burn, the rainforest becomes a carbon emitter, instead of a carbon sink, upon which all of humanity depends for survival.

The tropics will face permanent catastrophic climate consequences in 4 years time. The tropics will literally become uninhabitable. The tropics are 50% of earth’s land surface. Drought and groundwater depletion is also affecting the northern temperate zones.
