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.

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.
