What Is DeTrending?


You notice how all charts look like hockey sticks in the NHL Playoffs? That’s the volatility index for civilization. Imma getting so dyslexic, imma gonna cut-n-paste the word, dog.

Nelson Mandela And The Future History Of Water


The collapse of civilization is speculation about the future. Collapse hasn’t happened yet. Some say you can’t know the future. Who the hell would really want that? You would be as miserable as you would be rich. But, guess what? I predict that you will go to bed tonight and wake up tomorrow, and likely many days more. See? Predicting the future is easy.

There is a documentary on Netflix called, The Future Of Water.

Oh great!, you might say, another depressing doom documentary. This is anything but! It is one of the most beautiful nature documentaries I ever saw, the nature of people. It is about the history of people and water.

The film is not just about the future of water, it is about the history of water, and how that history formed civilization. It is about how water has taken us to where we are today. It’s like the anthropology of water. It’s not pretty, but the cinematography is sublime. The music is authentic. Especially when you see an old woman play a stringed black water jug.

We have bet the future history of civilization against the diminishing future of water, that future trends against us, and not for us. Population centres are exploding right exactly where the world’s water is polluted, drying up, or becoming extremely erratic. There are only a few mega major river systems on earth, all fed from the same mountains. These mountains are like water towers. Rivers like the Nile flow through 10 different countries with everybody upstream rushing to build more dams. There will be conflict with a 100% Money Back Lifetime Guarantee!

When the tiny mountain country of Lesotho in South Africa tried to take control of their own water in 1998, Nelson Mendela sent in the warplanes to kill protesters on a major dam, six of them died, and the people of Lesotho became hostages to their own water. Now I know that most of you didn’t know that, and that’s why you must watch this show. Nelson Mandela is not considered exactly a bad guy, but ya gotta wonder, what would people like Trump or Clinton do?

60% of groundwater in the Indo-Gangetic Basin is not drinkable or usable for irrigation

So far, I have only watched the first episode of The Future Of Water. It was titled, The Waterlords. The narrator has spent years witnessing and researching the history of water. Just on watching the first episode, you will understand how the historical political geography of water is taking us down stream to our destiny. China and India will fight over Tibet. India and Pakistan will fight over Kashmir. Pakistan and India are even now fighting an unknown war high in the mountain peaks, people call it, The War Of The Heavens.

Water will be the new golden scepter of power. It’s a Mad Max world after all. When all is said and done, more will be done than said! Well, at least that’s different. Power talks, bullshit walks.

In my last post, I wrote that if you want to see where we are going, you have to see where we are now. I was wrong. You also have to see where we came from, and civilization came from water. Okay, I’m done writing, and since I got the day off, I’m gonna go watch the second episode right now, and then I’m gonna git drunk and play my guitar. Cheers.


Note: This film was made in 2007 when climate science was in its infancy.

See: The Melting Third Pole, or what I call Pole 2.5.







Understanding Collapse Acceleration

The Collapse Food Line Starts In Syria.

If you have just fallen off a very large cliff, you will effectively be in a state of collapse, but it’s not the fall that will kill you, it’s the onrushing ground that’ll finish you off. As you are falling, you may be a little too panicked to notice that you are, in fact, accelerating. The further you fall, the faster you fall. Since hindsight doesn’t really apply in this situation, you’ll be forgiven for failing to notice the increasing speed of your fall. That’s how collapse works.

Oceans will rise 3 meters by 2050 says NOAA and RIMS. This will accelerate.


James Hansen says sea level rise will accelerate to ‘meters per decade’ by 2060. He also says that polar ice melt is doubling every 10 years, which is totally bad, and will result in super storms unlike any ever witnessed in all of human existence.


The tropics, which are 50% of earth, will suffer permanent catastrophic damage by 2020.

Moderate climate zones north and south of the tropics will suffer water and food shortages by 2020.
66% of humanity now face severe water shortages.

By 2025, in just 9 years, 2.8 billion people will face widespread food shortages due to water scarcity in parts of Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
By 2030, in just 14 years, there will be a 40% shortfall of water world wide. This will cripple our ability to produce electricity in many different areas.
Earth has lost 33% of its arable land in the last 40 years.
Earth only has 60 years of human agriculture left if soil degradation continues at present rates says Scientific American. Which means we could lose 50% of our soil in 30 years. This is 100% unthinkable. Read anything with George Monbiot on soil.
Lloyds of London and the British Foreign Office predict civilization will end in 25 years.
M.I.T. predicts world economy will collapse by 2030.
NASA-funded study: industrial civilisation headed for ‘irreversible collapse’?
In 2012, a team of 22 environmental experts said that by 2025, 50% of Earth’s land will have been altered by man, destroying essential natural environments needed to sustain life. And that moment, just 9 years from now, could be the beginning of the end of life as we know it. This will be the beginning of an irreversible, unstoppable mass extinction.
Global warming and climate tipping points will lead to accelerated runaway global heating.
It’s one thing to hear that civilization will likely collapse in 10 – 15 years. But, what does that really mean?  I don’t know, but in order to understand how fast it will happen, you have to understand where we are now. Look at this next link to see where we are now.
SPLAT!!! Now you understand. We are already collapsing, you just may not know it yet.



In a previous post, I confused The Royal Academy with The Royal Society, being a Canuck, they sounded exactly the same to me – pompous as fuck. Anyhow, I read somewhere (forget where) that oceans were losing oxygen 6 X faster than previously thought. I’ll let you know if I find any evidence for that statement.

Maybe I was smoking too much weed and drinking too much, I recently quit my job cutting grass and now I work as a handyman at a marina, but it may have something to do with this post from a couple of months ago. I don’t remember.

Here’s a link to the ‘non-emergency’ Sept 12-13 Royal Society conference on ocean oxygen depletion. Notice the map of the lack of oxygen in the Pacific and Tropics!



Got War? The Debt Inversion Bubble

Feel the war drum vibe?

The Pentagon got busted for losing $6 Trillion the other day. The last time they were busted this big, they admitted to losing $1 Trillion on Sept 10, 2001. Well, we know how that went. America has always believed war and technology would always get them out of any jam. The only way it ever really does, is buy selling debt. This may be top secret, but you can’t borrow your way out of debt, while promising to kill anyone who gets into your way.  American operatives have said they will openly/secretly kill Iranian and Russian troops in Syria.

In 1975, I was a male army cadet lieutenant in Blind River, Ontario, Canada and in charge of the first girl platoon in our country. I gave them their marching orders wearing shoulder length hair and a lime colored Wile E. Coyote t-shirt because I ‘forgot’ my uniform that night.

Our troop had once visited St. Andrew’s Air Force Base in Michigan. Being lieutenant, I was allowed to sit in the left navigator seat in the belly of an American B52 Bomber. Since I was told to touch nothing, I flicked the next to last switch by my left elbow, that’s when two ankle clamps sprung over my ankles. The guide officer said that had I hit the next button, left of the one I hit, I would have been plainly ejected out the bottom of the plane. This is only clearly not obvious now. The reason I digress is that B52 bombers have been reactivated in Afghanistan for the first time in 10 years. The old carpet bombers Kissinger blessed Asia with.

Your Collapse Command Center

Real Time And Near Real Time Collapse Modules!

Would you like to see the world unfold as it should? It’s not pretty, and it’s not for the faint of heart. You can watch it all in real time right now right here.

The World Weather Atlas

Get to know this module. By moving the globe to where you want, you can then click on the word ‘Earth’ at the bottom of your screen and select winds, ocean currents, temperatures to see what is happening now and what’s happening where, anywhere on earth.


The World Drought Atlas

Satellites can detect differences between rock, forests, and grasslands because these surfaces will emit energy differently back into space. In measuring these differences and observing patterns of vegetation, or lack of growth, NOAA scientists can monitor how droughts are changing across the world.


The World Wild Fire Atlas

Each of these fire maps accumulates the locations of the fires detected by satellites over a 10-day period. Each colored dot indicates a location where satellites detected at least one fire during a 10 day period. Color ranges from red where the fire count is low to yellow where number of fires is large. Having a world wild fire map that’s less than 10 days old is extraordinarily useful. You can literally watch the world burn.

The Great 3 Dimensional Chess Game

Do you remember the original Star Trek tee vee show where Spock and Kirk play chess on a multi leveled see through chess board?  I do, and it was the most my mind ever got blown without sex or drugs.

Do you remember the ol’ school story about doubling a grain of wheat on each and every square of a chess board? It goes like this, if you start with a single grain of wheat and double it for every square on the board, you end up with more wheat than is grown in all the world.

We are changing earth’s forests and peat bogs from carbon sinks, that absorb carbon, into carbon emitters, opposite of the way we like it to be. I wish the last 2 Beatles wrote a song called ‘Don’t Let It Be’.  It’s like your gain is as large as your loss, or, it’s like twice the ol’ double whammy.

Natural emissions are rapidly accelerating from more than a dozen naturally occurring feedback tipping points, independently from human emissions. Natural emissions will soon outweigh human emissions. These tipping points are on exponential curves, just like the grains of wheat on the chess board. Exponential curves are like that drunken tipsy feeling you get before the ground rushes up and smacks you in the face. I did just exactly that on a subway platform 20 years ago. My dad once told me that you are not drunk if you can still hang onto a blade of grass and not fall off the face of the earth, he was being facetious.

Collapse is an exponential curve. The economy is collapsing, but we are just barely feeling it. Or, we are just at that ‘pre-collapse tipsy’ moment, before reality rushes up to smack us in the face. Energy depletion is also an exponential curve. Just like I’m going get drunk this morning, and collapse tonight. Human carbon emissions are also on an exponential curve. But, far more seriously, natural source carbon emissions from a dozen different feedback systems are also all on exponential curves. This may be the weed talking, but I doubt if there are any really straight lines when talking about any throughput material like carbon.

It’s like taking a 12 layer chess board and placing a grain of wheat on each level, and then doubling them all for every square on the chess boards. The boards will collapse far quicker than it would from doubling just a single grain.

The temperate and tropical zones will soon feel permanent catastrophic consequences from weather and climate extremes in less than 5 years. But, people forget that the Arctic is heating up to 5 times faster than the rest of the planet.

An emergency meeting has been called at The London Royal Academy of Science because we recently found out that the oceans are losing oxygen 6 times faster than we thought.

When ocean temperatures finally reach 5° C, ocean oxygen will stop being produced.

When carbon emissions go up enough, oxygen slowly leaks into space.

When carbon reaches 1500 ppm, the oceans slowly drift off into space.

We are causing earth to lose its air and water.

The earth will not be fine without us.

How Unsexy Kills – Cold Comfort For Cold Carbon




The Misanthropocene

I don’t like people, but I love animals. I could watch people die on video all day long. But, if a dog even gets hurt, I lose my fucking mind. I cannot look at sad photos or videos of polar bears, elephants, rhinos, bees etc.

Now, Commie Dreams reports that there are 18 years of data showing how neonics are hurting bees, and other insects, and deep down we know nothing will be done about it. You’ll wait ’til the cows come home before you wait for neonics to be banned. I don’t hate people. Some of my best friends are people. God, I can’t believe I’m human.


Like they said on HeeHaw, “Hey grandpa, what’s for supper?”

99% of Rhinos gone since 1914.

97% of Tigers gone since 1914.

90% of Lions gone since 1993.

90% of Sea Turtles gone since 1980.

90% of Monarch Butterflies gone since 1995.

90% of Big Ocean Fish gone since 1950.

80% of Antarctic Krill gone since 1975.

80% of Western Gorillas gone since 1955.

60% of Forest Elephants gone since 1970.

50% of Great Barrier Reef gone since 1985.

40% of Giraffes gone since 2000.

30% of Marine Birds gone since 1995.

70% of Marine Birds gone since 1950.

28% of Land Animals gone since 1970.

28% of All Marine Animals gone since 1970.

97% – Humans & Livestock are 97% of land-air vertebrate biomass.

10,000 years ago we were 0.01% of land-air vertebrate biomass.

Humans and livestock caused 80% of land-air-water vertebrate species extinctions and occupy half the land on earth.
