Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

State of Emergency in N.J.; snowfall is record at airport

A record-breaking winter storm barreling its way up the East Coast dumped more than a foot of of snow on parts of southern New Jersey on Sunday – paralyzing local roads, grounding flights and forcing the Philadelphia Eagles to postpone their National Football Leauge game for possibly the first time in their history.

    […] people dying in a modern city like NY due to lack of basic services caused by snow is deserving of mention.

    [Jack, we’ve entered “the final stage of Earth’s antiphase.” As the services provided by Earth’s ecosystem slow down, withdrawn, or even reversed, our cities and population centers rapidly turn into deathtraps. See below link for an analysis:
    “When the cost of maintaining human species exceeds the planetary budget, and about 80 percent of the earth’s natural capital has been depleted, human species would be committed to extinction.”

    [P.s. together with the help of our friends at EDRO we’ll probably post an update on the first wave of world’s collapsing cities in December 2011, if we’re still around! NYC is PROBABLY among the first of our major cities to edge toward collapse. Moderator]

    I don’t find it strange at all to see these huge storms following a disruption of the gulf stream this past year. It’s also amazing how the weather continues to worsen globally yet there seems to be less and less in the news..I wonder why that is??

    (btw, this is a different Jack…pure coincidence)

      The Norse Quote? Kevin Crossley-Holland, “The Norse Myths”, 1980. The last two paragraphs of #32, Ragnarok.
      The answer to human survival lies within these two paragraphs. How to survive, what to do for food and water, how things will be.
