BOOGALOO 2021

It's just over a year ago since the so-called "Doomsday Clock" was pushed forward to 100 seconds to midnight – the closest symbolic point from an “apocalypse” since 1953. However, in recent days military activity around the world may just leave the "experts" wishing they had moved it a little closer.

You would think during a world pandemic and climatic catastrophes our world leaders would forget their differences and get together to work out our only planet's problems and do a "decent human thing." 

To expect our leaders to act as "decent human beings" though is, after all, a very naive idea on my part.

It is possible to “pinpoint” the time Jesus describes to his disciples about the “beginning of pangs of distress,” (in the world) which was written in Matthew 24: 6-8. He also added; We, (this generation) are not to be “alarmed,” for these things must take place. Now, for sure, the events Jesus warned His disciples about, wars, disease, earthquakes, poverty, famine and great signs and fearful sights from heaven have been happening here on Earth since the very beginning of history, thousands of years before Jesus, in fact.

However, in 1914, all the above began happening simultaneously and suddenly and on a global scale. The killing of people by the millions, something which had previously never happened before became the new normal as factory assembled weapons allowed killing to happen on an “industrial scale.” Wars and rumours of wars, (WWI, WWII and the Cold War) the Spanish Flu, (pestilences) which killed more people than the Great War and famine, (famine from wars, depression and poverty would go on to kill millions of people around the world in the years after 1914).

“Now learn this illustration from the fig tree: Just as soon as its young branch grows tender and sprouts its leaves, you know that summer is near.

 Available data from the Food and Agriculture Organisation released in March 2021, shows us that an increased occurrence and intensity of disasters is the new normal. Within the first few months of 2020, huge swarms of desert locusts began ravaging countries across the Greater Horn of Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, and Southwest Asia - just one more hit to farmers already impacted by floods, cyclones, hailstorms, animal diseases, droughts, and other shocks. By its end, the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season produced 30 named systems, far surpassing the usual 12-storm annual average.

Our Environment Is Collapsing Just As Severely As Our Society.

I read somewhere that to really understand something is to be liberated from it. Yet, how can we liberate ourselves from our vain attempt at global progress which has, in all intents and purposes, destroyed the very place in which we live? Our world is collapsing, an implosion on a scale unimaginable just a few years ago.


As a species, we have accomplished incredible achievements in medicine, science, physics, technology and art. Men have walked on the moon and our scientists have sent spaceships to every planet in our Solar System. We seem to be capable of doing anything we want but two problems have dogged us for thousands of years: accomplishing peace and eradicating poverty.

What happened to mankind and our planet during and just after 1957 warrants a further and much deeper investigation. We saw how 1957 was a pivotal year for Earth and its inhabitants, although, we didn't realise it at the time. That year was, without a shadow of a doubt, the turning point for our planet and humanity, 1957 was probably the most important year in the history of mankind, why do I say that?
Because it appears to be the beginning of the end for our planet and mankind. The Sun's behaviour on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and during the previous twelve months of 1957 was in itself astonishing and Earth's seismic reaction with a record-busting total of major quakes in the same year is not a coincidence. 
Chinese and Indian troops have reportedly clashed again in a disputed border area, with injuries on both sides, Indian media say. The incident took place in north Sikkim last Wednesday. Tensions are high along the world's longest disputed border. Both sides claim large areas of territory. At least 20 Indian soldiers died in a skirmish in the Ladakh area last June. It happened at Naku La in north Sikkim, the media reports said. Sikkim is an Indian state sandwiched between Bhutan and Nepal, about 2,500km (1,500 miles) east of the Ladakh area. 

Police in Belgium made 116 arrests after a demonstration in Brussels over the death of a young Black man who collapsed while in police custody turned violent. Police said most of the violence took place after a largely peaceful demonstration Wednesday of about 500 protesters - some holding Black Lives Matter signs - ended in downtown Brussels. "A group of demonstrators (50-100 people) remained on the spot and caused various incidents and degradations," police said, adding that several police officers were injured in the clashes.


Wednesday, 13 January 2021 As Covid-19 stole the show in 2020 another drama unfolded with a record-equaling hottest year ever; the hottest decade ever recorded and the 6 hottest years in the past 6 years! And don't hold your breath for a brighter future, just 2 weeks in and 2021 is already a nightmare developing

2020 will be remembered for the Covid-19 and the chaos it brought to a world not prepared for such a pandemic. However, and somewhat hidden because of Covid-19 and other major events Climate Change continued its relentless march in 2020 and causing the US alone, a record-busting 22 billion dollars in weather-related disasters in 2020.
