Extinction: Beginner’s Guide

Mass ExtinctionCollapse Charts

With 23 billion chickens on earth, if one sneezes we all get the flu, covids et al are here to stay. Livestock use up to 80% of antibiotics and cause 50% of animal to human infectious disease — the age of cheap and easy antibiotics is nearly over. While antibiotics can’t stop flu, sicker animals mean sicker humans

Editorial

Academic Fraud

Kevin Anderson rails against academic circle jerk auto asphyxia.

  • “The enthusiastic and almost unquestioning support by many academics for the net zero exemplifies how we’re prepared to forgo analysis and integrity to maintain politically-palatable fairy-tales of delivering on Paris.”

‘Some ideas are so stupid that only intellectuals believe them.’
– Orwell 1984

University Science is dividing into sects, like the early church
– James Lovelock

  • “I have felt for some time that the universities are getting dangerously like the early church. They have dozens of different sects and they are quite proud if you belong to one of them: if you are a chemist you often don’t know anything about biology and so on. This is why ordinary university science is not really helpful because the department looking at seaweed would not be the same as the one looking at methyl iodide. It is a division into bits. It’s time universities were revolutionised and had much more common thinking. It’s amazing how much objection there is to Gaia. I’m wondering to what extent you can put that down to the coal and oil industries who fought against any kind of message that would be bad for them.”

  • In 2005, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) created a software program called SCIgen that randomly combined strings of words to generate fake computer science papers. The objective of the exercise was to prove that the peer review process was fundamentally flawed and the conferences and journals would accept meaningless papers. After being notified by other researchers who were tracking those SCIgen papers, journals were still quietly pulling articles as late as 2014.

REAL CLIMATE JUSTICE = 100% PRIVATE GLOBAL CARBON UBI = 0% FOR GOVERNMENTS

Private carbon dividends were first proposed by James Hansen and several economists 10 years ago

The key to effective private dividends is a monthly rebate deposit to citizens only

Not to corporations or governments, that’s why corporations and governments hate it

27 Nobel Prize winning economists support Hansen’s dividends, including:

3,589 U.S. Economists,

4 Former Chairs of the Federal Reserve and

ALL 15 Former Chairs of the Council of Economic Advisers

Hansen said private monthly dividends would unite left and right to reduce emissions faster than any other way

IMO, this is humanity’s biggest failure and proof enough to me that we’re over

The latter include the leaching from plastics of carcinogenic and endocrine-disrupting contaminants, such as monomers, plastic additives and polymer-associated chemicals. In addition, due to their large surface area to volume ratio, small-scale plastic particles can become heavily contaminated.

Human Health, and Toxic Effects of Nanoparticles 
( Wiley 2014 )

  • The metals silver, gold, aluminum, and copper are inert in their bulk form but as particle size decreases, these metal‐based nanoparticles exhibit increased toxicity. 

Silver nanoparticles have lethal and sublethal adverse effects on development 
( Nature 2018 )

  • Silver nanoparticles lead to the formation free radicals in cells and changes in the form and amount of proteins. Many serious diseases are characterized by an overproduction of free radicals in cells. This applies to cancer and neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.Researchers warn that a combination of nanoparticles and contaminants may form a cocktail that is harmful to our cells. In their study, 72% of cells died after exposure to a cocktail of nano-silver and cadmium ions. We should not look at nanoparticles isolated when we investigate and discuss the effects, they may have on our health.

Nanoparticles more harmful than we think 
( Science Daily 2018 )

  • We need to take cocktail effects into account, said Professor Frank Kjeldsen, Dept of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, SDU, adding: Products with nano particles are being developed and manufactured every day, but in most countries there are no regulations, so there is no way of knowing what and how many nanoparticles are being released into the environment. In my opinion, this should be stopped.

Effects of Titanium Dioxide Nanoparticles Exposure 
( Springer 2019 )

  • The toxicity of titanium dioxide nanoparticles depends on their size, morphology, rate of migration and amount consumed. Titanium nanoparticles can induce inflammation due to oxidative stress. They can also have a genotoxic effect leading to, among others, apoptosis or chromosomal instability. After inhalation or oral exposure, titanium nanoparticles accumulate in, among other places, the lungs, alimentary tract, liver, heart, spleen, kidneys and cardiac muscle. In addition, they disturb glucose and lipid homeostasis.

Central nervous system toxicity of metallic nanoparticles 
( Dovepress 2014 )

  • Metal nanoparticles are hazardous to the central nervous system in terms of nano­neurotoxicity via several possible mechanisms, such as oxidative stress, autophagy, and lysosome dysfunction, and the activation of certain signaling pathways.

Risks to Health and Well-Being Radiation Emitted by Wireless Devices 
( NCBI 2019 )

  • Compared with an adult male, a cell phone held against the head of a child exposes deeper brain structures to greater radiation doses per unit volume, and the young, thin skull’s bone marrow absorbs a roughly 10-fold higher local dose. Men who keep cell phones in their trouser pockets have significantly lower sperm counts and significantly impaired sperm motility and morphology, including mitochondrial DNA damage.

  •  Change in memory performance over one year was negatively associated with cumulative duration of wireless phone use and more strongly with RF-EMF dose.

The EMF Effects on the Endocrine System in Children and Adolescents 
( NCBI 2015 )

  • Although there is no convincing data about causality, there are unignorable amount of studies indicating the increased risk of cancer, hematologic effects and cognitive impairment. Although they are less in amount; growing number of studies reveal the impacts on metabolism and endocrine function. Reproductive system and growth look like the most challenging fields. However there are also some concerns on detrimental effects of EMFs on thyroid functions, adrenal hormones, glucose homeostasis and melatonin levels. It is not easy to conduct a study investigating the effects of EMFs on a fetus or child due to ethical issues.
