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

America Has Finally Lost Her Will to Live

U.S. Politicians Plan to Euthanize Gravely Ill America

If you were as super-morbidly obese and gravely-ill as America, your doctor would put you on super deep diet and hourly exercise routines, while keeping you under 24-hr watch pending a major surgery.

The U.S. politicians have instead elected to condemn the country to an early death by planning to make her fatter, rather than fitter.

By allowing the United States to absorb more of the world’s natural resources, via other peoples’ money, the politician have ensured the country would be the first major nation to undergo collapse.

U.S. COULD BE THE 1ST MAJOR COUNTRY TO COLLAPSE

‘World cannot survive without a revolution’

A year ago to the date MSRB wrote [and Google censored—filtered, blocked, or buried:]

Not Just the US, world cannot survive without a revolution

Consider this:

1. About 92 percent of all economic activity goes toward maintaining a system that is destroying the very world our lives depend on.

2. Between us and a possible future stands a tiny minority that are actively destroying our chances of getting there. More…

America has very little time, if any, to put its house in order, before facing a major collapse.

Drought and Deluge: Major Mechanisms Of Collapse

Posted by feww on December 5, 2009

Of the Visible Mechanisms of Collapse Drought and Deluge Are Among Leaders

For most everyone it would be difficult to imagine dealing with about 2,800 mm of rainfall in 6 months; however, many Filipinos experienced such catastrophic deluge caused by 12 storm between May and November 2009.

It’s not known whether the Island of Luzon would ever recover from the 2009 tropical cyclones, or how much worse the next few seasons could get.

The consensus among our colleagues at EDRO is that the mechanisms of collapse will intensify globally.

Brief History of 2009 Tropical Cyclones that affected The Philippines

  • May 2 and 3, 2009. Tropical Storm Kujira brought torrential rains which triggered floods in  southern Luzon (northeast and central Philippines).
  • May 7. Typhoon Chan-hom (“Emong”) struck the northwest coast of Luzon with more heavy rains and yet more flooding.
  • June 12 – 22 and June 23 – 25. Typhoon Linfa and Tropical Storm Nangka [“Feria”] passed over the Philippines triggering more heavy rains, floods, and landslides. Many tornadoes worsened the impact of Nangka.
  • July 10 – 11. Tropical Storm Soudelor [“Gorio”] reduced to a tropical depression, Soudelor moved close to northern Luzon, producing more than 330 mm of rainfall which triggered flash floods and landslides in a dozen villages.
  • July 16 – 18. Typhoon Molave [“Isang”] passed close to northern Philippines causing yet more flooding in the region.
  • August 1. Tropical Storm Goni (Jolina) affected about 120,000 people, with a dozen dead or missing in 120 villages, 25 towns and 5 cities.
  • August 3 – 11. Typhoon Morakot [“Kiko”] left ten villages in the Philippines,submerged in up to 2-meters of  floodwater after the Pinatubo Dike overflowed. Morakot dumped over 2,500 mm of rain over parts of Taiwan.
  • September 9, 2009 Tropical Storm Mujigae [“Maring”] was lurking around in Soth China Sea near western Luzon causing more rainfall.
  • September 11 – 13. Typhoon Koppu [“Nando”] caused a 48 hour downpour over parts of Luzon and a   24 hour rainfall over Visayas and Mindanao,as it enhanced the impact of the southwest monsoon.
  • September 26. Typhoon Ketsana [“Ondoy”] triggered Manila’s worst flooding in living memory.
  • October 1. Typhoon Parma followed quickly after, churning Manila to Vanilla.
  • Late October 2009. Typhoons Lupit and Mirinae left trails of destructioon in theier wakes.

This image illustrates the rainfall in the Philippines from 12 named storms between May and October in 2009. Two storms, Ketsana and Parma, brought unusually heavy flood-inducing rain within a two-week span at the end of September and early October. Image includes only the rain when each of the 12 storms were active. The heaviest rainfall, in excess of 2000 millimeters (80 inches), is shown in dark blue.

The data for the image came from the Multisatellite Precipitation Analysis, which calibrates rainfall estimates from many satellites using rainfall measurements from the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite.

The World Will Never Be the Same Again!

Posted by feww on January 18, 2009

Climatologist James Hansen echos the call for action

“I have been described as the grandfather of climate change. In fact, I am just a grandfather and I do not want my grandchildren to say that grandpa understood what was happening but didn’t make it clear,” Hansen said last week.

Hansen says Barack Obama’s four-year administration, which begins with his inauguration as US president on Tuesday,  offers the world a last chance to avoid global disaster. Melting glaciers and ice caps, flooded coastal cities, species extinctions and expanding deserts  await mankind, he says.

“We cannot now afford to put off change any longer. We have to get on a new path within this new administration. We have only four years left for Obama to set an example to the rest of the world. America must take the lead.”

Hansen correctly senses that the world is collapsing; however, his timetable  is too optimistic. Perhaps the optimism arises from a lack of appreciation of  fragility of ecosystems and the mechanisms of collapse, the progress of which are exponentially  intensifying.
