For your light weekend reading as this week’s rare and mysteriously becalmed explosive/implosive Grand Cardinal Cross begins to wane . . . Also see this report of 50% of this spring’s flowers at Trader Joe’s with genetic damage. Do check out the entire climateviewer site. Invaluable.

Recently it has become rather annoying to try to research almost any topic without repeatedly tripping over the letters E-L-E. From Nibiru to Yellowstone, this term has been getting thrown around a lot, sometimes as irresponsibly as the impending doom scenario being described, which often times hasn’t even happened yet. Generally, I like to stick with the doom that has already occurred, rather than worry about things that haven’t. So what exactly is an ELE? Wayward planets, supervolcanos, and scary comets aside, in the case of the Fukushima Accident – 3 nuclear meltdowns which have gone China Syndrome and have never been contained – is this term really being used correctly?

An ELE is a BIG DEAL. So when laying down the ELE-card it is important to understand exactly what an ELE is, and how it changes the game. By definition:
An Extinction Level Event (also known as a mass extinction or biotic crisis) is a widespread and rapid decrease in the amount of life on earth. Such an event is identified by a sharp change in the diversity and abundance of macroscopic life. It occurs when the rate of extinction increases with respect to the rate of speciation. Because the majority of diversity and biomass on Earth is microbial, and thus difficult to measure, recorded extinction events affect the easily observed, biologically complex component of the biosphere rather than the total diversity and abundance of life.
