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

In Nature They Don’t Trust

The Disaster Continent

TC Bianca Moves South along Western Australia’s Coast, as Anthony Returns for Queenslanding

NOT Smart!

Waging a war against nature and expecting to win it are two frightfully unintelligent acts.

Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, cyclones, wildfires, drought and deluge as well as all other natural forces work as nature’s  defense mechanisms. Australia is not immune to any of those forces (hint!)

Australia is not alone. All around us there’s a growing body of evidence that nature has begun targeting communities that are participating directly or indirectly in the vicious and destructive wars of resource depletion, poisoning and pollution against her.  In these worsening wars of aggression, there are no such things as innocent victims and, unfortunately, some collateral damage should be expected because nature’s response is often collective.
