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

June 4 Entry in the 2011 Disaster Calendar

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

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

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.

In 2010, FIRE-EARTH Forecast that 2011 would be SIX TIMES MORE DISASTROUS THAN 2010

  • [June 4, 2011]  Mass die-offs resulting from human impact and the planetary response to the anthropogenic assault could occur by early 2016.  SYMBOLIC COUNTDOWN: 1,747 Days Left to the ‘Worst Day’ in Human History
    • The Arctic. Cairn Energy, a British oil exploration company based in Edinburgh, has started drilling two wells off the coast of Greenland, reports said. “The company, which plans to drill a total of four wells in Greenland this summer, said that drilling operations commenced at one well on its Atammik Block and one well on its Lady Franklin Block off the coast of West Greenland.”
    • Tunisia.  At least 250 passengers are feared drowned after a Europe-bound boat from Libya capsized off the Kerkennah island, near the coast of Tunisia, reports said.
      • “We recovered only two bodies yesterday [and] we suspended search operations because of bad weather,” coast guard director told AFP news agency on Friday.
      • “Earlier, Carole Laleve from the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) told Reuters that 150 bodies had been found off the shores of Kerkennah.” The report added.
    • USA. Wildfires have consumed a YTD total of about 6 million acres and 1,800 structures throughout the U.S., FIRE-EARTH estimated.
    • Texas, USA. Wildfires have incinerated at least 2,753,912 acres and destroyed 1,195 structures in the state of Texas, according to Texas Forest Service. [Note: FIRE-EARTH estimates that at least 1,600 structures have been lost to Texas fires since January 2011.]
    • The Dakotas, USA. About 15,000 people were forced to evacuate in Minot, North Dakota as Missouri River continued swelling.  Meanwhile, hundreds of homes in Pierre, Fort Pierre and Dakota Dunes in South Dakota, are being evacuated.

    Arctic protesters force Cairn to halt drilling

    (Reuters) – British oil explorer Cairn Energy said on Saturday it had suspended drilling from a rig off the coast of Greenland after environmental protesters breached an exclusion zone.

    The company, which plans to drill a total of four wells off Greenland this summer, said Greenpeace activists boarded its “Leiv Eiriksson” drilling vessel and entered a restricted area.

    “In accordance with the strict Health and Safety practices employed in this drilling program and in order to ensure safe operating conditions, drilling has been suspended,” Cairn said.

    Two days ago, Cairn filed a lawsuit against Greenpeace to deter it from disrupting its exploration plans in the Arctic, one of the last untapped hydrocarbon basins in the world.

    It is seeking fines of up to 2 million euros ($2.89 million) for every day that protesters stop it from drilling.

    Environmentalist argue drilling in the Arctic carries unacceptable risks because harsh conditions and the remoteness of the region will make it difficult to tackle an offshore spill.

    Greenpeace confirmed 18 activists had scaled Cairn’s Arctil oil rig in the early hours of Saturday.

    “Their mission – to find Cairn’s elusive Oil Spill Response Plan,” it said in a web posting. “Cairn is hiding it so we’re going to the one place where there must be a copy of it!”

    Cairn is leading a charge into offshore Greenland, which explorers believe could hold billions of barrels of oil.

    Exxon Mobil, Husky Energy and others also plan to drill there.
