The End Of The World As We Knew It

********

ALL

WARNINGS

HAVE BEEN IGNORED 

Humanity faces the possibility of an imminent gargantuan release of methanes and related gasses that shall accelerate the non-stop heat rise. If that happens: We are finished. Period.

For “Teary-Eyed” parents and such: Such is happening due the nature of our greed. Period.

We couldn’t say “NO!” to madmen who would have us send our sons and daughters to foreign lands to murder the sons, daughters and whole families of other societies.

That being so: How could ANYONE expect us to act to save our progeny? Abandon our Prized Mobility”? Are you crazy?

They should also know that we'll openly permit such madness to curse our steps into the new paradigm that shall, with or without us, form as a result of “The Non-Stop HeatRise”! (Do-Dos! Why are we so?)

 

WHAT ABOUT OUR CHILDREN? 

How will we prepare them for that harsh and fast approaching reality? 

Are we to continue the lies that have them believing that there is nothing they need be concerned about with respect to the future? 

The only way to proceed is to start a process by which our children can learn, as quick as possible, that we will soon be reduced to a struggle to survive. 

A struggle that will center on our ability to grow food and store, share and prepare it on a community basis. If we can achieve that goal, teaching ourselves and our children to learn how to make our own clothes and provide shelter against the extremes of weather, we will be on the way to a new world, one wherein “Human Values” may very well develop as an antidote and as a needed replacement for the religious creeds and credos that have set us against each other for far too long.

Now, the most serious of questions must be addressed: 

 How can we help the vast majority avoid falling into a depression from which they may well be unable to exit? How do we ensure children do not grow so despondent, that suicide becomes a viable option? 

Most importantly: How can we get those who would lead us, to now admit the truth of our predicament? 

So: Where are we in the free fall towards the end of the world?

Do we have ten years to prepare? Five? Less? 

Options versus Solutions 

It is doubtful that a solution exists to solve the Climate Crisis. 

Suggesting that we immediately park and abandon our personal use vehicles is a political non-starter. Any politician who would dare to promote such knows that they risk losing their pay, position and any possible promotion to higher office. 

Indeed! No politician has shown intellect and integrity sufficient to support and promote that necessary WORLDWIDE act! 

Suggesting that the world’s nations make an agreement whereby all work to end our dependence on fossil fuels as soon as possible is also a non-starter. However:  We have little choice. 

Either the whole of humanity willfully chooses to confront the reality of the crisis posed by the Non-Stop HeatRise and we immediately STORE ALL personal use vehicles and save the remaining oil to fuel our farm tractors and food transport vehicles; or we choose to remain in a state of denial until the ENSUING COLLAPSE leads to WW3. 

Our choice should be clear. 

But our infection by the madness of greed and the years of our lives spent wasting the earth’s available bounty, dictates that we have little hope of collectively confronting the crisis. Ergo: 

We are left to choose from a small set of options. 

Option 1: 

Discover some far away hideout where you can escape the consequences of too great a nuclear fallout, grow your own food and not have to be constantly on guard to protect it from those who, unable to fend for themselves, will have no choice but to try to survive by stealing the food and other supplies of whoever they might come across or whose food caches they might stumble upon. 

To have any hope of successfully surviving in such a scenario, you must have a comprehensive skill set, including an ability to diagnose medical ills, treat fractures, make harnesses, clothes, plows & kill neighbors when necessary.

Absent possession of such skills and intellectual ability and stamina to endure living in such circumstances, your best bet is: 

Option 2:

And that is to develop and stay within a tight knit community, one that has come to terms with the crisis and wherein everyone has forgiven all others for whatever slights or crimes, real or imagined and made a truly honest and collective decision to work together to provide the needed food, clothes and shelter as required and to also stand by each other whatever happens. 

For this option to succeed, your community must be located far from any possible areas where we can anticipate nuclear fallout. Also, in order to develop the best possible chance of staying together as a close knit group, all must do their best to contribute to the community’s ability to learn to be self-supporting. 

Such means that you must start to immediately spread the word in that community about the reality of the non-stop HeatRise and its unavoidable costs and consequences. 

You must also bring on board a cadre of the older, calmer and more reflective personages within that community to help give a sense of hope and direction to everyone else. 

Option 3:

Make a decision to do your utmost to survive where you presently live; and do everything in your power to enable yourself and family to provide yourselves with everything you need, through your own efforts and to protect each other from any outsider who might presume to have a right to your food and other supplies. 

In order for this to be a viable option, you must purchase as many seeds, clothing, weapons, ammunition and other hard goods as you can envision shall be necessary to your attempts to survive. Then, for a period of some years after the crash is well and truly underway, you should avoid having anything to do with anyone who is not part of your immediate family and survival group. 

Option 4:

 I doubt that we have any more options, other than surrendering to the madness and prepare to party until widespread anarchy suggests that we become as hardened and as prepared to kill as our neighbors; and do it before they do the same, to us. 

Sorry. But that is what we face, if we fail to start thinking, immediately, about that which the whole of humanity will soon endure and why we allowed it to happen. 

******** 

 Should this message to the world inspire you to do something about the coming crisis:

The operative word is “Community”. 

Help guide / develop yours to a point whereat everyone knows and understands that we must ALL accept that a new paradigm is being formed; a paradigm that will involve hard work performed by all. 

Note that the people of Cuba responded as they had to respond when, following the collapse of the USSR, they could no longer expect to be supplied with oil to fuel their food production. 

During the time they spent learning how to co-operate with each other in order to produce the food they needed, everyone lost some 14% of their body weight. Even now, there are few obese people in Cuba. 

The same will soon happen throughout the world. With respect to our need to maintain a certain level of agricultural output: 

I urge all farmers to develop a means to protect their

beasts of burden from being slaughtered

for food by starving individuals

to whom “tomorrow”

will be a meaningless abstract. 

May all do their utmost to survive with honor and principles intact. 

To a safer, saner &  more caring world.

To Duty.

Thank you.

With respect to Prof. Guy McPherson’s belief

that we shall be rendered extinct: 

I share his belief that the majority

will soon succumb to the various disasters

that we face, due our conduct,

including loss of Habitat. 

However, it is also my belief that,

among the more intelligent

and better prepared,

there shall be a kernel of survivors

and we WILL travel the Stars

in keeping with the hopes of

Prof. Stephen Hawking.

I am not only a pacifist, but a militant pacifist. I am willing to fight for peace. Nothing will end war unless the people themselves refuse to go to war."  - Albert Einstein
