The Fountain of Youth And Predatory Consumers

Computers Destroy Your Brain And Judgement

Most people grew up staring at computers 8-12 hrs/day.

Peter Thiel pays for child blood transfusions. He flushes his own veins and arteries with the blood of children so he can remain younger longer. He wants to make money taking blood from poor children and giving it to rich old people.

The reason this is wrong is because we can’t all do that. You need a lot of blood transfusions to stay young and there are not enough handy kids for everyone. Besides, kids are way smaller than adults. Once more people do it. Then child blood trafficking services take over and corruption ensues. There is also the temptation to enforce mandatory transfusions and promote unregulated amoral supply sub-contractors.

Everybody cheats in China. Bejing can pronounce policy, but it’s provincial and urban powers that exploit non regulation. I remember reading about bears in China being kept in cages while they had their bile drained, so that some old rich guy could get it up.

This virile fountain of youth and post-human bullshit is why we can’t stop rhinos and elephants from being killed. It’s unaccountable unregulated urban demand. Chinese elites go to night clubs where they snort rhino powder up their noses to feel young again, while mixing cola and wine, because they like drinking wine, even if they hate the taste.

I don’t hate Chinese people. I’m talking about unregulated markets. It’s the same with iPhones being made by kids who would rather jump off the roof where they work than go on living. Right now there are children who fish as boat slaves pouring cyanide over coral reefs to make their masters a buck.

This is why I think it’s a moral imperative to unify the world using international, 100% private carbon tax dividends 0% for government and corporations. This way we take money from the rich and give it to the poor. Not a violent revolution, but a peaceful 10 year phase in world wide. Likely based on a open source honest block chain regulatory agreement. Because that’s all money is, an agreement.

If we don’t do this voluntarily before disasters overwhelm us we will hasten collapse. We can’t afford to pretend to virtuously recycle 10 billion phones a year forever. Nor will we virtuously recycle solar panels and windmills every 30 years for 10 billion people before collapse.

We should have started 20 years ago, now we have to change more radically going forward. We don’t got time for endless debates about our race, sex and class. We have to work together to get it done or Eric Prince and his boys will privatize the nation’s justice system and lock us down with our own phones. But they’re already doing that. Then they’ll take our children’s blood, and some favour the pineal gland found in a child’s brain, like Hunter S. Thompson. They say it’s the ultimate high. The ultimate predatory consumer.

Intersectional Tipping Point Triggers

Three things make our world go round, oceans, soils and trees.

They make the food we eat and the air we breathe.

When the sun hits earth, soils and oceans grow plants that suck carbon out of the air.

Here are a list of 30 different tipping points waiting to crush you.

The most important one is water vapor in the air.

https://guymcpherson.com/climate-chaos/climate-change-summary-and-update/

Guy may be an egomaniacal ass wipe, but he’s articulate and detailed.

Oceans

Plant plankton love cold water, they suck up carbon and spit out oxygen.

Critter plankton love warm water, they suck up oxygen and spit out carbon.

Each night the largest migration on earth occurs when the eaters swim up to the warmer surface to eat the growers.

The ocean are warming, so eaters are outpacing growers.

This is just one more way that oceans suck less and less carbon.

The oceans are so big that if they suck 10% less carbon, the whole world goes to shit.

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/05/170525161326.htm

Soils

Soils are made of carbon and minerals and are blowing away.

Fifteen minutes of hard rain will wash away more soil than anything else will all year.

Industrial farming is degrading soils and leeching them of their minerals.

In some ways this is worse, because you can’t see soil degradation.

The way we farm will destroy human agriculture in 50 years.

Peat bogs are vast carbon sinks that we burn to grow palm oil for food and fuel.

The tundra is a carbon sink that lacks snow so it’s melts and gives off carbon.

Carbon dioxide sources from Alaska driven by Arctic tundra

Trees

Each and every single day we cut down forests the size of North Carolina.

Temperate zone trees are drying up and burning, sending carbon up in the sky, as dry weather cells push polewards away from the equator. West African ocean storms are also washing sand dust out of westerly trade winds to let Caribbean storms grow stronger.

Northern Europe gets 60% of its renewable energy burning dead trees as wood pellets.

Trees are the energy battery that stores all the sunlight hitting earth.

Without trees, earth will lose its atmosphere and oceans will drift off into space.

The earth will not be fine without us.

What it all means. 

I have no clue. A climate scientist can’t explain how bad things are going to get any more than an economist, or a crazy old guy on the net. I just used Intersectional because it seems the latest buzzword I hear alot these days. It’s the same how everyone pluralizes “data” now, or use “they” as a sexual pronoun. I call it the slut gentrification of words. I shouldn’t be one to talk though because I love neologisms. They’re gasmic.

I read Costco’s got 20 year emergency food buckets for like a thousand bucks.
