[October 11, 2011]  Mass die-offs resulting from human impact and the planetary response to the anthropogenic assault could occur by early 2016.  SYMBOLIC COUNTDOWN: 1,618 Days Left to the ‘Worst Day’ in Human History

  • Sindh Province, Pakistan. Heavy monsoon and severe flooding in Pakistan have affected about 9 million people since August, mostly in southern Pakistan’s Sindh province.
    • “Official estimates indicate that, as of 27 September, over 8.9 million people have been affected and at least 880 000 hectares of standing crops have been damaged. The affected crop land represents 3.7 percent of the total national cropped area.” FAO said.
    • “The affected crop land represents 3.7 percent of the total national cropped area. However, damage to the current paddy crop is moderate and is estimated by FAO and Pakistan’s space agency (SUPARCO), as of 20 September, at about 252 700 tonnes, or 2.5 percent of the normal national production.”
    • Floods have also destroyed or damage about 1.5 million houses.
    • Some 20,000 irrigation structures have also been destroyed.
    • About 92,000 livestock have perished, and FIVE million surviving animals are at risk.
    • Severe losses of crop, livestock and grain stock, as well as wholesale damage to housing and infrastructure have left at least 2.75 million people in immediate need of food [and shelter] assistance, especially in Sindh province, FAO report cited a joint UN-Government assessment.

Other Disasters

  • UK. The nuclear inspector has given the green light to the decrepit and potentially catastrophic nuclear energy industry in the UK.
    • “I remain confident that our UK nuclear facilities have no fundamental safety weaknesses (but) no matter how high our standards, the quest for improvement must never stop,” said the head of UK’s Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR).
