This is a good video. I used to be heavily involved with lefty NGO social investment publishing, and I noticed the heightened difference between actions and words, or, that they all talked like hippies and acted like thieves. The more a media lie is pushed, the more it is toxic. The idea that investors want socially responsible Arctic investments is exactly what I’m talking about. It’s like Chrissy says.

“We now live in a nation where doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the press destroys information, religion destroys morals, and our banks destroy the economy.”

― Chris Hedges

But hasn’t it always been like that?

The only way to make individuals reduce emissions is to pay 100% carbon tax dividends in a new world public A.I. block chain e-currency, with no direct share for corporations and governments. I truly believe this, but then I’m a little high and I always make this statement when so. Even a die hard collaspitarian can’t stop imagining a better world.

Everything Sounds Better In French

The French chick in the third video segment is full of shit, European climate policy is a joke and China wants to build a New Mad Maximillian Silk Road to Europe. French Total Oil is working with the Russians in the Arctic right now. She wants to bail out nuclear power operators and call it social justice. But she’s right that earth emissions are taking over human emissions. Plus I love the way she says ‘mitigate’.

As for business stepping up to the emissions plate? That’s a joke right? Like Robber Baron Philanthropy? I watched Bill Gates talk about robotics and Trump. His head is so far up Hisanus it’s a blinking lopsided nightmare.

New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson

2140

I liked Kim’s last novel called Aurora, it showed how extremely difficult biomes in space are to maintain. It’s long winded and boring, but an excellent book idea. But what about New York underwater?

Sea level rise estimates have tripled recently, and James Hansen says they can quickly become on a “meters per decade scale” as early as 2050-2060 along with monster storms unseen in humanity’s existence.

Add all this shit up and you can easily see we are going to have to decommission all our coastal nuclear reactors and at least recommission military installations. Which means making them stand up to floods and super storms. Yet the Pentagon wastes about $5 trillion per decade on corruption while the CIA won’t stop their War On Democracy.

It takes like 50 years to decommission nuclear reactors.

There’s a legend about a fabled sea-faring city called Atlantis that sunk beneath the sea for their evil ways. This happened some 10,000 years or more ago, and it’s going to happen again because we have literally forgotten our ancient past. And you know what they say about history.

So sing New York, New York and don’t forget that salt water very quickly rusts steel-reinforced concrete. That’s why Kim’s vision may be a bit off, because once inundated, New York towers will start toppling within 20 years, maybe as early as 2060. Who knows? But, look at the nuclear plants and military bases in Florida. It ain’t gonna be pretty.

Collapse Daily, How Loki Loses His Shit!

Each day I get up and focus on collapse for about an hour. Today the focus is on financials and energy – the crypto-currency crash, the gold flash crash, the Japanese bond market freeze, and the bail-in of taxpayers by 2 Italian banks. Most of these gyrations are considered temporary yet they do indicate massive instability.

Some “scientists” tell us we can achieve 100% renewable electrical energy before we collapse, which I say is complete bullshit. They say we can better utilize hydro power at a time that water flows are receding and erratic. They ignore the fact that nuclear plants are so old as to be unsafe and will have to be replaced. Gas and oil use are expected to grow 15% by 2035, but no one talks about how much of that growth will have to come from fracking, which uses massive amounts of water in the face of oncoming shortages. And nobody talks about the mineral constraints on solar and wind power development. When I look online, I see everyone talking about self-driving flying cars like it’s a given. People talk of electric cars like as if we can have all the renewable energy we want in the world. China is burning less coal and we are driving less mostly because of the economy, not because we are tree hugging saints. In fact most of the power for electric cars in Europe will come from actually burning trees.

The 2 biggest fake news stories are energy and finance, both of which are corrupt to the core. You may of heard of the death of Moore’s law, but when it comes to debt financing, it appears to be alive and well – and on steroids. All this talk of energy and finance seems to be at the expense of the ecology, which only surfaces when news gets out about how we can’t stop poisoning our water. All the talk of a green energy nirvana is totally disconnected from the war in Syria, which is about who will control a gas pipeline to Europe.

In ten years the super rich will have stolen half our pensions through fraud and half our jobs through robotics. In exchange for that, we are offered war, which is the number one jobs program in the U.S. In ten years we won’t need boots on the ground in the middle east, it will be fought by A.I. supersonic drones and miniature A.I. tanks.

Right now we got an opioid epidemic ravaging the nation, and big pharma decides to jack up the anti-overdose to extortionist heights. I thought I was a bad writer, but Julian Assange has come out with a story about how we’re dividing the country into racial/social tribes to accelerate the war agenda.

Most collapse stories started with gold shills and Green NGOs who wanted to make money. I write about collapse every day because I believe it’s happening and not to make money for a book tour or through YouTube monetization. The only reason ads appear on this site is because I’m too cheap to pay the $10/year it takes to get rid of them.

The Annual Running Of The Bulls

BP’s annual energy guide is out and you can expect the green bullshit to run hot and heavy. Do you trust BP? Do you trust China’s coal data? What I found was that by 2035, BP expects electric cars to number 100 million out of 1 billion cars. Electric cars have absolutely no effect on the climate. They expect liquid natural gas to double or increase 100%. They also expect energy demand to increase 30% with a 15% increase in fossil fuels. All the green slobs will hail this as good news and remark on how badly BP missed the mark on renewable energy growth. BP expects emissions to increase by 13% in 2035. They expect renewables to move up from 6% of primary energy to 10% in 15 years, but don’t forget that Europe gets 60% of its renewable energy by burning trees. So by 2035, after 30 years of trying, renewable energy will be just 10% of primary energy. Greens will wet their pants over this and apply a generous dose of extra wild eyed slobbering spin.

The State of The State of Emergency

Let’s just say I invented a magical electricity source that was 100% emissions free, the size of an iphone, lasted forever, all for $100.00.  Not only would I be richer than the Rosthschilds, I would be a god. Right up there with Jesus, Mohamed and Moses, or even Gates, Bezos and Zuckerberg. All 6 media corporations would line up to kiss my ass.

The only problem is that electricity is only 20% of total world energy demand and the carbon disruption from all the “green growth” from my magical device would send a pulse of growth emissions that would blow our carbon budget all to hell. We think we are green because we don’t understand how energy rich we are. Not only is energy poverty coming, but energy will get dirtier and dirtier even as China pollutes its air shipping more and more solar panels and wind turbines worldwide.

100% total world energy transitions take several decades to do. We still burn wood but nowadays call it green energy. Northern Europe gets 60% of its “renewable electricity” by deforesting the whole planet. Pellets are shipped there from all over the world. Then when a small bush grows back in the clear cut we say, “Oh look! The forest is back.” Deforestation rates are a lie based on the definition of “forest”. We replace the clear cuts with palm oil plantations and count them as forests. Then we send the palm oil to Europe to burn in diesel cars as “biofuels”.

Some of these science whores will talk about algae ponds for solar/wind back up energy, what they don’t tell you is that humanity would need a country the size of Argentina to do this. South Korea doesn’t have enough land for 100% solar/wind power. The U.N. science pimps tells us we’ll get carbon negative energy growing all manner of plants, and they tell us we need new arable land the size of India to do it. That’s 1.2 million square miles, yet the whole planet only has 12 million square miles and we are losing 40,000 square mile of arable land per year. That rate of loss is not fixed and is bound upwards.

We are at war in the middle east for a gas pipeline while we talk of robots taking half our jobs in ten years and selling a green energy dream to the rich. We do not have enough energy to reduce emissions and sell electric vehicles to eliminate poverty with a universal basic income. We still allow banks to bribe pension fund managers to buy insolvent bank stock. We like to pretend 2007 is not happening again. Universal Basic Income is a stalling tactic before your pension haircut puts the skin on your scalp in the game. You lost your homes in 2007, now you are going to lose your pensions and the banks are going to make you pay for it. This is a crime pure and simple.

The real crime is that this all serves to distract us from mitigating and adapting to collapse. Specifically, the collapse of energy accounting for mineral depletion in our habitat. Earth will not be fine without us.

This mineral collapse is destroying millions of acres of soil everywhere. It’s causing 80% of animal extinctions.  It is ruining our health and making us sick. Our food is so poisoned we’ve become allergic to gluten, which is something we’ve eaten for 10,000 years. If we painted the Sahara desert green it would look like our fields of corn and soy. This crop land is so poisoned that even bees can’t live there. This degradation of soil is a depreciating asset externalized by accounting rules.

The only way to even begin to solve this is to devise a world e-currency based on open source rules. So that instead of hiding all the money in secret in foreign banks, we pool it all to survive, but we can’t even discuss it because power is not given, it is only taken, and the only way to take power is through the internet.

It is because we lack the imagination and willpower to do anything that we will fail. We can’t pretend even more fraudulent carbon trading schemes work. Europe’s carbon trading scheme is run by charlatans and crime syndicates. They get 60% of their defined “renewable energy” from burning trees shipped worldwide. This is a crime based on accounting rules. Europeans burn palm and soy oils in their diesel cars and lie about emissions. This is a crime based on accounting rules. We will likely have to turn over carbon and mineral energy accounting over to an open source artificial intelligence.

Well, that’s the morning’s rant, have a great day.
