Ominous Facts About the Gulf Oil Disaster
Since 2004 the blog Moderators, their colleagues and affiliates have warned about Earth’s Terminal Energy (ETE)
U.S., the world, stake the future on high-energy strategies. Energy models’ simulations show all such strategies ending in collapse. EDRO
Forecast the first wave of collapse
And presaged the extinction of the Energy Dinosaurs:
Our energy models have forecast with high degree of accuracy the rate and timeline of the collapse.
Gulf Oil Disaster: Ominous Facts
- The Gulf of Mexico Oil Disaster was Predictable and Preventable
- It was UNNECESSARY.
- The disaster could probably set the stage for the regional, national, international and ultimately global collapse.
Deadly Oil Slick in the Gulf of Mexico
Photo-like image of Gulf of Mexico was captured by MODIS on NASA’s Terra satellite on July 9, as oil floated across the region around the Mississippi River Delta. “Beyond the area where the Sun’s reflection would have appeared, however, oil may make the water surface look unusually dark rather than bright. The dark arc in the water east of Timbalier Bay may also be oil; it is consistent with oil locations identified with radar images of the area captured on July 8.“ Source: NASA E/O.

This blog has now been dedicated to the ‘survivors’ of the planetary collapse forced by man-made cataclysms
The blog Moderators believe that in less than a decade from now the total human population on Earth will fall below 200,000 people.
Most of the ‘survivors’ would be highly evolved, ethical and altruistic humans with the ability to overcome the immense difficulties they will have inherited . . .
Nevertheless, the Moderators believe by identifying the major man-made obstacles that stand in the way, they could, for their part, help to keep the flow of life on this planet uninterrupted.

Athens Fires May Torch Marathon!
At least 100 forest blazes have started throughout Greece in less than a day torching the worst record set in 2007, officials said.
Up to 80 large forest fires torch Greece. The worst blazes are occurring in areas where homes are built among trees, reducing the forests, natural resistence to fire. Photo AP. Image may be subject to copyright.
Summary of events:
- Fires are spreading through northern suburb of Athens, the Greek capital.
- The government has declared a state of emergency in the area.
- The fires have spread as far north as the towns of Grammatiko and Varnavas, and are also threatening the town of Marathon.
- Thousands of hectares of forest, farmland and olive groves have been blackened; many homes and structure have been destroyed.
- Gale-force winds are intensifying the blazes, which started late Friday, intensifying overnight through Saturday
- Fire crews are trying to prevent the fires from reaching Pendeli, a famous suburb of the capital with spectacular view of Athens.
- “Much of Pendeli mountain was destroyed in 2007, and further erosion of the treeline would be an ecological disaster,” the BBC’s reporter in Athens said.
- The 2007 forest fires on mainland blackened 6% of Greece’s tree cover, killing 70 people.
- “The fires are further contributing to the deforestation of the mountains around Athens. Three of the four mountains surrounding the capital have already been stripped of their trees by fire,” BBC added.
- In July thousands of hectares of forest and farmland were incinerated across the Mediterranean in France, Greece, Italy and Spain, aided by heat waves and dry conditions.

The most widely used phrase by “scientists” in 2009

UN’s Ban Ki Moon: Pace of Climate Change “very serious and alarming.”
“The impact of climate change is accelerating at an ‘alarming’ pace and urgent action must be taken, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Wednesday.” Reuters reported.

“What is frightening is that the scientists are now reviewing their predictions, recognizing that climate change impact is accelerating at a much faster pace,” Ban said, referring to the ongoing fifth assessment report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
“This is very serious and alarming. That is why I have been urging that if we take any action, we must take action now regardless of where you are coming from. Rich and poor countries, we must address this issue together,” Ban said.
