Mass die-offs resulting from human impact and the planetary response to the anthropogenic assault could occur by early 2016

2011 – 2012: A Time for Mega Disasters

U.S., the world, stake the future on high-energy strategies. Energy models’ simulations show all such strategies ending in collapse. EDRO

FIRE-EARTH Forecast: 2011 SIX TIMES MORE DISASTROUS THAN 2010

Nearly all of the anthropogenic and human-enhanced disasters that will occur on the planet in the 2011-2012 period would have been preventable.

Humans continued to devour energy at a rate of 17.3terrawatt in 2011, when maximum ‘safe’ limit was less than 1.9terrawatt.

IMPORTANT: Neither FIRE-EARTH nor EDRO MODELS SHOW the WORLD ENDING in 2012, but that the FIRST PHASE of CIVIC COLLAPSE WILL HAVE STARTED.
