Collapse Daily May 30 2018

I am a SF nerd. The first published SF newsprint story was in the 1880s? about an automatic steam operated metal humanoid, the cover had a pen and ink picture of it pulling an old pioneer wagon. Star Trek communicators came from Dick Tracy video wrist watches. I read a trashy NYT novel about global warming in 1985.

Why are there no good climate change novels? Too busy reading mindless drivel? I’m getting so desperate, I now just make up my own climate change SF scenarios.

We are now completely divided. Poor red plains rich blue coasts. As the plains dry and coasts flood, these people will be pushed closer together. The militarization of identity politics is a farce that’s not always useful and will be dropped. I blame Derek Jensen and those fancy 1960s french philosophic morons who still exploit commie infatuated youth to advocate destruction and anarchy. Especially in a gun crazed nation. Then there was operation Gladio, used to blame commies for episodic mass violence in Europe. It’s the same old shit, monarchy versus communism.

Death to gun culture. 100% private carbon dividends = justice & liberty.

Taxing the rich until there’re no rich no more is a good thing.

Food And Drug Companies Making Us Maleless Morons

Our food is nutritionless poison more like plastic than food. It will make you depressed and sick. The stuff that looks like grains, fruit and vegetables today is not meant to eaten by humans. Then the doctors get rich treating you with more drugs because food makes you sick.

If all the bugs are dying off because they can’t eat our food, then how the fuck come we can eat it. If the bugs won’t eat it, then neither will I, if I can help it. We can carbon tax poisoned food out of existence, but only though 100% private tax dividends. If governments and corporations get their hands on that money, all is lost. That is exactly what they’re doing right now, all in the name of goodness. They’re like NGO workers, they’re gonna help us til it hurts.

Then we take that poisoned food and wrap it in packaging materials that are turning us into maleless morons. We use intellectual property rights for greed and monopoly power for the FAAG gang of 4. We send China our garbage and helped poisoned their land and water with the worst of our greed, all while virtue signalling our wholesomeness.

You can’t save earth showering the middle east with depleted uranium munitions for oil and pretend self-driving electric cars are gonna save the economy. The last fucking thing in the world we need is to save this economy. Let’s ditch it and start over.

When Kane and Abel went to college, one became a scientist (poisoner), who makes you sick, and the other became a doctor (drug pusher). I am Kane, and I am Able. They did it for money, but they don’t know what money is. 100% private world carbon tax credits = no share for governments and corporations.

Change money, change the world. The rich know money means power and power + greed is what will kill their kids. They think they are providing for their kids for the cruel evil world they made. They think they’re predatory survivalists. They’re not real men, they’re pussies. It’s always the the nice quiet ones. I know these people, they’re the worst.

World May Hit 2 Degrees of Warming in 10-15 Years Thanks to Fracking, Says Cornell Scientist

https://www.desmogblog.com/2018/04/11/climate-change-two-degree-warming-fracking-natural-gas-rush-ingraffea

China and America have trouble reporting coal and methane emissions honestly.

Ground ozone is toxic to plant and humans and is a major greenhouse gas.

Asia is the likely source of new lower stratospheric ozone destruction.

Ground ozone causes global warming which causes more earthquakes and volcanoes.

Volcanoes emit sulphur which destroys upper atmospheric ozone.

Ozone destruction and a weaker magnetic field will combine to increase radiation exposure.

We have to decrease emissions 100% in 10-20 years.

Electric cars will only decrease emissions 0.5% over the next 30 years.

We will run out of soil and water before we reduce emissions 100%.

We have to grow more food over the next 50 years, than we did in the last 10,000.
