Calculating The Human Tipping Point

roll.jpg

Resources, Habitat, Peace And Civilization all decline way faster than they grow.

In 2009, Scientific American said we will run out of soil in 60 years at current rates of degradation and loss. Sixty years kinda sticks in your head meaning you think you’re okay for now, but that is exactly not the case. What it means is that in like 30 years half our soil will be gone. We need 12 million acres of new soil or 30 years to feed humanity, but we are now losing 24 million acres of soil per year. That’s called double-or-nothing on a losing bet. There is nothing to indicate these numbers won’t accelerate. They are just calculations based on current values, but exponential change means those numbers will change, and change fast. Not in a good way.
.
Take another example, water demand will exceed supply by 40% in 10 years. That means all hell breaks loose in 5 years and not that you have 10 more good years. But wait a minute, nothing says it can’t happen sooner and worser. It will, which way do you think things are going?
.
You take any projection and assume it will get worse, and worser, fast and faster, and the odds are you’ll be right. Staring at one data set of numbers to the exclusion of all the others is like staring at the Queen of Hearts while the house falls down. So let’s add up all the accelerating rates of change.
.
Sea level rise = accelerating
.
Ocean deoxygenation = accelerating
.
Ocean acidification = accelerating
.
Soil degradation + loss = accelerating
.
Mega Storms + Droughts = accelerating
.
Resource depletion = accelerating
.
Inequality = accelerating
.
You get the idea, the list goes on and on, with each model forming a house of cards upon which civilization rests. I don’t believe McPherson is right when he says no humans in ten years. But does that even fucking matter? In ten years you won’t recognize your life. We are at the very tippy top peak of civilization, we will go on almost as we are for a few precious more years, but the rate of change will accelerate.
.
They say human knowledge now doubles every 5 years. Well we’ve been bombing woman and children for 15 years now and I don’t feel any smarter. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’m getting stupider.

Decoding Podesta’s Hands

podestafish14

Way back in the mid seventies, when I was around 16 years old, we used to do a lot of LSD, and when we did we would stare and marvel in awe of our hands for like for-fucking-ever. I now realize that when you’re a 16 year old male, your hand is actually your best friend.

Well here’s a video that decodes the numerology of Podesta’s hands. Be prepared! If you ever have to pull a porcupine quill from your dog’s face, be prepared that your dog will never look at you the same way again, ever. Get someone else to do it. And by watching this video, you’ll never look at your hands the same way again either, for-fucking-ever.

My Wife Is A Witch

will-rogers

My wife is a witch. She won’t even get rid of the spiders that inhabit our house. I even got little black salamanders living in the rocky basement. I live in a house that has its own god damned ecosystem. I love it. A fox is running down the streets and my dogs are losing their minds barking and whining.

There once was a comedian named Will Rogers who said that the only thing he knows is what he reads in the newspapers. Just like I believe everything I see on YouTube. I remember a comic book from when I was a kid called, Wendy The Good Witch. There was even a popular song called Wendy. I grew up totally in love Samantha on Bewitched. When I found out that the whole planet was a chick, I thought, what could go wrong? Jeeze! Was I wrong.

I don’t exactly remember when, but it wasn’t so long ago that I learned about spirit cooking, and I saw a picture of Lady GaGa eating some kind of weird shit made from bodily fluids over a ‘corpse’. Doing this is supposed to fill you with vim and vigor I was told. This was when I remembered my wife tried to make me watch American Horror Story, starring Lady GaGa. It was the stupidest thing I ever saw. I guess black magic makes some people pretty nearly as horny as Joe Biden. Anyhow this Marina Abramovic, the spirit cook, is like 70 years old and doesn’t look a day over 40, so she’s living proof there’s supposed to be something to this Satanic elixir of youth. Now Lady GaGa’s a young beautiful woman and I guess she wants to stay that way. But if slurping blood and cum is the way to do that, then you can count me out. Whatever, to each their own I thought.

But then I started thinking about the fake child sacrifices and I thought, wouldn’t some people do that sort of thing for real, if that’s what they believed? Some questions just answer themselves I guess.

Then I see Lady GaGa, perversely dressed in a Michael Jackson jacket, looking better and more ghoulish than ever telling us The Wicked Witch of Washington was going to be the first woman president of the United States. Well, if I had any urine in my bladder, I would have lost it right there. I’ve seen a lot of creepy horror stories in my time, but this one takes the cake. I’m glad I married a good witch. We ain’t old, we’re ripe.

The Infinite Mind Fuck

no-snake-eyes

Let’s do a thought experiment. I’m going to imagine that everything the fake liberal press says is true. Okay… let’s see..? Naomi Klein! If we just help the Rockefellers with their renewable energy plans, we’ll grow the economy with a green energy infrastructure boom that outpaces the fossil economy 6 to 1. Yah Baby!!! She says all these jobs will be unionized. Yah!!! 8 weeks vacation, here we come! From as near as I can tell, we’ll all be riding bikes and trains, while elites tool about in electric cars. Yah Baby!!! I love social engineering, it’s fun! Oh yeah! Nuclear power will just go away because of all the shiny solar panels and wind turbines. Yah Baby! Fuck!!! I like being a liberal. It’s cool. Wait, here’s the best part. Ha, ha, ha… sorry, but this cracks me up. We’re are going to stop throwing out food and eating meat and strip mining the soil for grains. Oh yeah, we’re all going to grow organic food in skyscrapers. We’re going to put windmills in rising seas, and solar panels in drought stricken deserts. Genius!!! Wow, being a liberal is just what I imagine a DMT hallucination is like. Cool! It’s like taking a trip and never leaving the farm. Oh wait a minute, I almost forgot, we’re going to drive those electric cars on solar powered roads. Ho ho ho!!!! I’m sorry I gotta stop, my stomach hurts from laughing. I would pretend to think like a conservative, but that’s just too crazy and even I won’t go there. Sorry, I almost forgot, we’re going live on Mars!!! I think the plan is to terraform Mars to provide oxygen before we run out here. We’re like inter-planetary gonorrhea. Wow, I feel spent and want a cigarette.

Your Monday Morning Collapse

Truth Is The New Hate Crime

Our government is blowing up hospitals, schools, women and children over in Syria to help the Arabs build a gas pipeline to Europe. Do you want to know why elites engage in Satanic cults? Because it promises them ‘eternal’ youth and extreme sexual pleasure before they die.  It’s a commitment to a prolonged intensity of life over common decency and morals. They naturally believe themselves superior. To keep us from noticing, they heighten identity and class politics into opposing ideologies. They use the mass media to do this. They pitch crotchety ol’ fucks like me against the ever growing youth. Youth think green positive rainbow unicorn thoughts, and old fucks like me obsess over death, blood and destruction. Gays and rednecks should get over themselves and focus on what’s really important, purging elites. It’s up to gays to close the gap, cuz rednecks are too stupid. But that’s not enough, we need something more, and nothing heals wounds like money. And nothing will unite gays and rednecks like money. Money is the ultimate click bait.

The reason elites must be purged is because they are seditiously destroying outdated institutional organizations with treason and fraud. This fraud is based on notions of privacy, which is another joke of a story for another time. The way to purge them is to take back the credit and currency of the world from elites and give it to people all over the world at the same time. We can start a new world e-currency based on carbon tax dividends ( 100% for you, 0% for governments and corporations ). It’s like a guaranteed income for the whole world that gets phased in over 10 years. Imagine getting hassle free international e-credits deposited to your phone each month. James Hansen cites studies that say carbon tax dividends are the quickest and most efficient way to reduce emissions. The reason we put these tax dividends in a new world e-currency is to reduce emissions simultaneously worldwide on an equitable basis. It’s like a capitalist/socialist hybrid. Confession: this idea was inspired by reefer madness.

Do you remember what I said about what divides us? It’s important because no one likes James Hansen’s second idea, which is that we have to double down on nuclear power. I can hear the black lights flicker on in your head. Nuclear power is not just like a mental switch you turn off because you don’t like it. It’s consequences cannot be ignored. James Hansen says that new nuclear technology can clean up our nuclear waste to make it safer and cheaper to store. The U.S. has 300 years worth of energy they can get from nuclear waste. We have no choice here. We have to clean up nuclear waste. We can’t just turn it off in our heads. It’s too dark in there.

Now, I’m sure being gay or redneck is important to you, but like I said, get over it.
