Fire Earth

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

800 Days and Counting Down

Homo Ignarus Reach another Expected Milestone in their Brief Pathetic History

Year two of BIG “Surprises” is about to begin!

Critical Overload Threatens Planetary Life Support Systems

The FIRE-EARTH/CASF Index of Human Impact on Nature (HIoN), an index for calculating the human impact on the planetary life support systems, climbed to a critically high level of 323 on July 1, 2013. In other words, the anthropogenic impact on the living environment exceeded 3.23 times the planet’s diminishing carrying capacity.

  • The index is rising exponentially.
  • HIoN rose 38 points, or more than 13 percent, year to July 1, 2013.
  • The index was less than 80 in 1960, and rose to about 100 in 1980.
  • Based on current FIRE-EARTH projections, the HIoN on July 1, 2014 WILL be a big “surprise!”

“According to HIoN projections, our cities and population centers could become almost entirely unsustainable by as early as 2015.”

Tidal Surge of Global Change 26 Times Faster in 21st Century: FIRE-EARTH

FIRE-EARTH Models show the rate of global change has intensified by a factor of at least 26 in the last decade compared with the 1960s.

FIRE-EARTH defines ‘global change’ as the deterioration in the planet’s life-support capacity, caused by large-scale anthropogenic impact, which is leading to a total collapse.

Humanoids are about to enter a new year as the anthropogenic impact on the living environment continues to exponentially destroy the planet’s diminishing carrying capacity.

[December 30, 2013] DISASTER CALENDAR SYMBOLIC COUNTDOWN: 800 Days Left 

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

7 Billion Jacks, Not a Single Candlelight to Shine Through…

World Population Passes the 7 Billion Mark: UN

According to the United Nation’s Population Division (UNDESA) the world population would pass the 7 billion mark today.

The clueless humans set another nightmarish milestone: Human demographics are now comparable in scale and quality to the bacterial growth dynamics.

Disaster Calendar 2011 – October 31

[October 31, 2011]  Mass die-offs resulting from human impact and the planetary response to the anthropogenic assault could occur by early 2016.  SYMBOLIC COUNTDOWN: 1,598 Days Left to the ‘Worst Day’ in Human History

  • Global Population. The world population has reached 7 billion, as estimated by the United Nation’s Population Division.
    • The Effective World population: “To the one half of the world who live on less than 2-dollars a day (they receive 300 times less per capita energy than the US citizens) the world must look extremely overpopulated with an effective population of 57 billion! [The EU27 with per capita GDP of $29,900 would account for 21 billion and the United States—per capita GDP of $43,223—for 18 billion of the total effective population.]”


  • October 31, 2011 was selected by the UN body as a symbolic date to mark the occasion.
  • The estimate includes at least a 1-percent margin of error, experts say.
  • Based on the US government Census Bureau’s world population clock, the seven billion mark will be reached in late March 2012 .
  • According to the Population Reference Bureau, a private organization based in Washington, the 7 billion mark was reached earlier this month.
  • Globally, an estimated 5 babies are born every second.
