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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Correction:

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!
