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

2011 Disaster Calendar – May

On May 15, 2011 symbolic countdown to the ‘worst day’ in human history will begin.

NEW VISITORS WHO HAVEN’T ALREADY READ THE FIRST WAVE OF COLLAPSING CITIES, OUGHT TO DO SO NOW!

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.
