    Pressum Diem
    Posted by Guy McPherson on December 31, 2018 |

    “I, myself, doubt that many people reading these words have three years to live. Habitat for humans on Earth will disappear shortly after the Arctic ice is gone, which is likely to occur in the summer of 2019. Three decades is a pipe dream to be experienced by no humans on Earth.”—Guy McPherson

    Just as the Sixth Mass Extinction is proceeding completely unknown to most humans, the End-Permian Extinction, the worst of the six mass extinction events within the last 500 million years, occurred without warning about 252 million years ago. The current, ongoing event is proceeding at an order of magnitude faster than the version of 252 million years ago as we pump greenhouse gases into the atmosphere roughly on an order of magnitude faster than occurred then. Contemporary events match those of the deep past as marine and terrestrial species disappear over a period that is geologically instantaneous.

    Because mammals depend heavily upon myriad other species for their own survival this group of organisms cannot evolve quickly enough to escape the Sixth Mass Extinction. Homo sapiens are mammals. If this sounds problematic to you, then you are paying proper attention.

    Of course, the situation grows worse by the day. We are heading for a New Cretaceous Period, not for “a new normal.”

    Extract from above article:

    Of course, the situation grows worse by the day. We are heading for a New Cretaceous Period, not for “a new normal.”

    The Cretaceous Period meant hothouse Earth, the end of which was particularly suitable for the blossoming of small mammals as the dinosaurs went extinct. As the author of the linked article points out, “the only way I can possibly conceive of humans living in a New Cretaceous age is as a rump of scientists and technologists working in artificial, protected shelters.” He goes on, noting that “the Holocene was a freakish gift to humanity that we have exploited and taken for granted. We are now assisting at its funeral.”

  8. John W says:

    Any political party that moves too much against the hard right wing frenetic accumulation of wealth for the few, ignoring all environmental constraints; will be demolished through the MSM campaign, US based TV and the stupidity of voters.

    Jacinda is doing OK so far is a hostile environment. The incremental gains must be cemented in place.

    You do not have many other options.

    If you see one what is it.

    Revolution is unlikely to happen without leadership and with surveillance, any emergence of leadership/ power to fight the psychopaths will be dealt to.

    If things get bad enough open widespread revolt will be put down.

    Food supply may well get interrupted and controlled. the ultimate weapon.
