- We're setting sail to the place on the map from which no one has ever returned, drawn by the promise of the joker and the fool, by the light of the crosses that burned: World Party - Ship Of Fools
When the White House’s top spokesman, Press Secretary Sean Spicer said this week that President Bashar al-Assad had committed atrocities worse than Nazi leader Adolf Hitler... Hitler, as the rest of the world knows, gassed 6 million Jews in WWII… And a CEO of a top world airline company claimed one of “his” customers acted “disruptive and belligerent" as he was dragged helplessly, screaming and bloodied by 4 airline thugs, down the aisle of a jet after refusing to give up his seat voluntarily, why should he anyway? He paid for it! Or when world leaders are threatening to nuke each other, not each other personally you understand but the millions of poor innocent people who are governed by these people, well it gives us all an idea, just where the state of our global union is at the moment. Not surprising then, suicide has reached epidemic levels around the world…
Mutual assured destruction (MAD)
As our world appears to head to a mutual assured destruction (MAD) our leaders appear to be lacking in intelligence, commonsense or are just too corrupt to fix anything. Some of you will agree and some of you will say it’s always been like this and you would be correct.
However, it’s when you put the current geopolitics in the same basket as the current geophysics together, we begin to see a very disturbing picture of a disaster coming our way that is unprecedented in its magnitude and size, a disaster which will destroy the planet, very soon and not one politician or world leader can stop it from happening because we have already crossed the point of no return years ago, we as a planet are on death row waiting for sentence to be carried out.
Let us indulge...
WWF: Wild animals living on Earth is set to fall by two-thirds by 2020
It’s already over for many animal species: In just three years’ time the World will have lost two-thirds of all wild animals.
This amazing statistic from The Living Planet Index goes on: The number of wild animals living on Earth is set to fall by two-thirds by 2020, according to a new report, part of a mass extinction that is destroying the natural world upon which humanity depends.
By 2050 they will all be gone but don’t worry the world we know won’t be here to witness the event.
The analysis, the most comprehensive to date, indicates that animal populations plummeted by 58% between 1970 and 2012, with losses on track to reach 67% by 2020. Researchers from WWF and the Zoological Society of London compiled the report from scientific data and found that the destruction of wild habitats, hunting and pollution were to blame.
Oceans just as bad
Our oceans are in a similar condition, with the Fukushima accident poisoning the Pacific and the stricken nuclear plant sinking deeper into the ground and no known way to fix the problem, the only option is to wait and see what happens in the next 50 years! It really is that bad.
Warming seas are causing toxic dead zones all over the world’s oceans killing billions of fish, tropical barrier reefs around the world are dying due to the warmth and with massive over fishing we are causing too much stress on the fish which are left, without doubt, we are too far down the line to save our oceans, they too, soon will die just like the fish inside them and the animals on land.
A study by Boris Worm, PhD, of Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, -- with colleagues in the U.K., U.S., Sweden, and Panama claims all ocean life will be extinct within the next 25 years. Once again the world we know won’t be here to witness the event
Major quakes up by more than 400% since 1900
Major earthquakes have risen more than 400% since 1900 despite USGS telling us otherwise, in the first 16 years of the 20th century 97 major quakes were recorded on Earth compared to 2, 697 in the first 16 years of the 21st century.
Volcano activity shows a similar spike to the quakes.
Droughts and floods
Ethiopia, South Sudan, Somalia, Niger, Kenya and Cameroon are enduring their worst drought in 50 years with millions suffering severe hunger.
In a new phenomenon ”the weather bomb” which drops incredible amounts of water in an area very quickly has wiped out other crippling droughts around the world more or less overnight…
Peru, Colombia, California, Zimbabwe, New Zealand and Madagascar, Namibia and Angola, all have had yearlong droughts virtually wiped out this year, overnight, by massive amounts of rainfall often bringing many casualties and damage with it.
With nearly half a billion dead trees in California and Colorado it’s not surprising wildfires are accelerating in the U.S. However, it’s not just America it is a global phenomenon which is rising at an alarming rate just in the last year.
In Florida the first three months of 2017 saw a 250% increase in wild-fires but the new “super fire” are not only destroying millions of acres of bush but appear to be cable of destroying entire cities.
Recently, Christchurch, New Zealand was hit hard by wild-fires with thousands evacuated; Chile had its biggest ever wild-fire with a whole town destroyed.
Wildfires across several states in central U.S. in March, consumed an incredible one million acres killing thousands of calving cattle causing evacuation of thousands.
The monster 'Blue Cut' and Sand Canyon fire’s last summer caused the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of people and caused devastation on a Biblical scale.
The Arctic sea ice extent for March 2017 was the lowest March extent in the 38-year satellite record. The extra warmth is causing the Arctic to leak methane 200 times faster than usual as gases turn parts of Siberia tundra into ‘trampoline’ soil. Atmospheric methane concentrations are of interest because it is one of the most potent greenhouse gases in Earth's atmosphere, more warmth more methane, more methane, more warmth… and when leaked into the sea methane will kill all marine life. A deadly patch of warm water along the American West coast called the ‘Pacific blob’, stretching all the way from California up to the Gulf of Alaska, is thought to contain huge concentrations of methane and is responsible for the death of hundreds of thousands of sea birds along with other marine life in the area recently.
This winter, the Arctic was often warmer than Southern US States and Southern Europe, parts of the usually warm Mediterranean countries were so called thousands of acres of winter crops died causing huge shortages in European supermarkets.
Lightning strikes are on a 12 to 24% increase: The phenomenon appears to be worsening with climate change and last November a rare phenomenon "thunderstorm asthma” claimed 6 lives in Australia.
The increase in temperatures in India Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan have become so extreme thousands of locals die every year with temperatures often hitting 50 Celsius, 130 Fahrenheit, melting roads and cars.
The gateway to Hell often called the Middle East along with parts of Africa has caused a refugee crisis the U.N. says is probably the largest global exodus in world history with nearly 100 million people leaving the area, most of these trying to get to Europe, these people need help and should be helped but the crisis has led to a terrorist invasion causing hundreds of deaths on the streets of European cities and as IS are now facing defeat many many more terrorists will go “home” to Europe.
On the bigger picture the Middle East has brought the world closer to WWIII than ever before with Russia, Iran, Syria, North Korea standing against the U.S and Europe.
Runaway health issues are stretching governments around the world, in many countries people are living longer but there is an enormous spike in heart and lung disease, cancer, mental illness and obesity.
Many poor souls have been forced to find solace in alcohol or drugs
Violence and gun crime is at the highest level ever and human and drug trafficking is happening around the world on an industrial scale.
When we put all the problems of the world in one basket (and I’m quite sure I missed some too!) we can see a bigger more accurate problem as to what really is happening, sure all the above is seen on our TV’s every day but we are drip fed with information, it is hardly ever given to us in a bundle, and no wonder, we really would be in panic especially when nothing will be done to rectify our predicament, and even if some world leader or Organisation tried it’s simply too late, we can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube
