Is the global climate changing, and if so how? Meanwhile, welcome to “precarity.”

A Grave Climate Warning, Buried on Black Friday

We’re being played, again, folks. Climate Warning, in the above post, actually means Climate Warming, which may or may not be real, and may or may not be caused by human activity. Most likely, human activity has exacerbated climate change, but some scientists argue  that the entire solar system is heating up.

On the other hand, others argue that we have just entered a mini ice-age, or a period of global cooling. For example, Clif High, who also has a radically different view of the relationship between our sun and its planets.

And. if the past two years are any indication, then global cooling may be more likely.

Don’t Tell Anyone, But We Just Had Two Years of Record-Breaking Global Cooling

What’s the real story here? Warming or cooling? Or just an insignificant blip in either direction? Who knows? I sure don’t. But I do think we need to pay special attention to political and economic agendas disguised as “science” that drive predictions. Meanwhile, here’s some food for thought:

Tell me, is Buckminister Fuller seeing the future? If so, he’s working with a different timeline than the one we appear to be on.

America’s Permanent War Complex

If you’re like me, you can only barely manage to skim through parts of the above long piece. One thing that stands out:  the increasing privatization of war, i.e., the increasing corporate takeover of what should be a governmental function, subject to the rule of law.

Instead, we have a lawless world, in which the U.S. Empire, while flailing, is still the world’s greatest bully, preemptively wreaking chaos and confusion everywhere in order to kill and maim and displace and take over and control, all in the grotesque pretense of  “installing democracy”and meanwhile — The U.S. Military failed its first formal audit, “AS EXPECTED.” So, no big deal to fail the audit? Huh?

Furthermore:

The U.S. Military Is The World’s Number One Consumer of Fuel

— which of course, is one big reason for continued military occupation, to ensure ongoing fuel supplies . . .

One thing the U.S. Military could be doing, and perhaps will be doing in the near future, is helping to mitigate the inevitable disasters that will accompany dramatic effects of climate change — whether warming or cooling. This possible changed priority — that of helping, rather than hurting — might itself begin to alter the dystopian atmosphere into which are hurtling —  the 1% hunkered into elaborate New Zealand bunkers, and the rest of us “useless eaters” either isolated in paranoid rural prepper outposts, or, more likely, barely clinging to survival in cities and towns, while here and there the more aware among us continue to nurture tiny islands of earth-centered community.

Hey wait a minute! Do I really mean all that? Or am I just “in a bad mood.”

One thing’s for sure: we need to face up to all these considerations in our newly languaged condition of “precarity,”  if we wish to alter the timeline we are on. I would like nothing more than to see the world through Buckminster Fuller’s eyes. If enough of us can expand our imagination in a transformative direction, you can be sure we will also direct our energy to manifest that vision.

So that’s the challenge: to wake up! Each of us individually and all of us collectively, to the climactic course we are on. Climate change is, it must be, first of all, a dramatic release of the hostile, mutually suspicious, ideologically polarized and materialistically selfish and greedy, climate in human affairs.

    Hi–Here on your web site–Philosopher’s Stone–Linda Moulton Howe speaking;
    a video. wow. Some information. Hope you listen to this.
    Thanks,
    JoAnne Decker

    I’d like to know the author of that IBD editorial stating that there was cooling in the last 2 years. The NASA data contradicts that claim. Is there an incentive for NASA to fabricate that data? I can’t think of any.

    Hi Ann!

    That book you have by Laura Knight-Jadcyzk goes into this stuff fairly thoroughly, but I’ve read more than enough to understand that what is being sold to us as “Global Warming” is actually a scam to insinuate that humans have a greater effect on the Earth’s climate than the sun, so we are ALL “guilty”, so the elites can institute a global carbon tax – which basically would amount to a tax on all of life, since we are carbon-based beings. All a part of the Agenda 21/2030 BS. And, NASA is one of the mouthpieces for this garbage. Talk about the “cult of science” being used to sell snake-oil to the masses…

    Carbon dioxide is NOT the cause of “global warming”, even *if* the Earth were warming (and it’s not – we are entering a Maunder Minimum). The climate changes that are occurring right now on Earth are ALSO happening on *all the other planets in the solar system* – and are more likely than not occurring due to a change in the electromagnetic environment. But the sun has the biggest say.

    Here are a few You-Tube videos by Ben Davidson, who owns the “Suspicious Observers” daily solar news update website that explain much of what I just wrote. The rest you can find in that book. Of these videos, the first, second, and fourth are the shortest; the third gives a broader overview.

    If that’s not enough, I’ve got thousands more where that came from. I am, after all, heavily invested in this stuff, being a whistle-blower and all.

    take care!

      Thanks, Tony! I figured I’d hear from you. I am aware of the gist of most of what you are talking about here, though not nearly so certain as you. I prefer to stay open, and to focus my intentions on what I want to see happen in the world. Rose-colored glasses? Perhaps.

      I do think it key that we realize that no matter how much we try to prove any set of “facts,” they are always plucked or made up from the mystery. And that the mystery itself is infinitely more than any map we can construct, no matter how detailed.

      • Anthony says:

        Well, you might be right about those “rose colored glasses” – one of the things Laura writes about is how there is a Human-cosmic connection between what is going on here on Earth, and the “mental state” of people as a whole may be what directs the haps down here.

        I’m a scientist so I’m always about “facts”, and I’m wary about rooting for people like Trump who are so embedded in “the system” that it smacks of Stockholm syndrome to me; but I’m also aware that my own personal birth chart is such that I’ve always been one to dig into the deepest, darkest, dankest garbage and roll in it like a dog, then bring it out for everyone else to see (I have a “bucket chart” like your husband Jeff, with most of my planets on the bottom half). It’s my nature to see the worst!

        …but secretly, I always hope for the best. Darn it.

        (BTW, reading through your book: I would have loved to meet Jeff. I’m sure we could have had some interesting discussions! About a third of the way through…paka! Schastliva! Dobre viecher! Dos Vidanya!)

        • Ann Kreilkamp says:

          Yes, you and Jeff would have had a great time talking! BTW: Something I remember from him that keeps returning to haunt me: his remark that conspiracy theories tend to form a self-referential universe, looping around, citing each other, in an echo chamber of their own. Of course he said this back in the ’90s, when our conspiratorial research wasn’t as entrenched as it has become over time. The internet hadn’t even come of age! Our reading was all in books. The one that got me (besides Kathy O’Brien’s Trance Formation of America) was William Greider’s Secrets of the Temple: How the Federal Reserve Runs the Country (1987). As I recall, Greider was one of the founders of the Occupy Movment 24 years later, two Jupiter cycles later. I seem to remember he invented the phrase “the 99% vs. the 1%.” Not sure of that. But check out this article, in The Nation back then: https://www.thenation.com/article/democratic-promise-occupy-wall-street/. One of the claims he made there was that the movement would have a lasting effect. And I’d say now that it definitely did, and is. The Trump phenomenon is only the latest expression of that. Whether the outcome of all this fractious near-chaos is fruitful or not DEPENDS ON ALL OF US. Which is why I keep saying in my posts: What are YOU doing, not just what you’re thinking, but what are you DOING to advance the cause human and earth regeneration?

          • Anthony says:

            I’ll answer your ruminations about conspiracies and the Nation article probably in an e-mail sometime where I can outline my thoughts better, but my current “journey” to understanding came with that first book I gave you.

            As for what am “I” doing – well, that changed with the fires. I had been purchasing books and printing out important articles so I could serve as sort of a “Library of Alexandria” for people after things settle down, so I could help them understand what just happened.

            I also had been buying a lot of supplies, and teaching myself how to make water filters and make-shift rocket stoves. I figured since all my neighbors are basically NPC’s and won’t have saved anything if things go down for a while (as I think may happen if there is a currency crisis), I could help them out some.

            But now, after the fires and knowing a lot of people who are now homeless, I think the best thing I can do is to keep learning useful techniques like first-aid and foraging. Becoming a moving store of knowledge seems the best thing I can do, and offer others, with my current skillset. So, that’s what I’m doing.

            BTW, have you ever thought about what you would do, were you forced from home? It might be worthwhile. Seeing what happened to my best friend, who often got lost in wishful thinking, and who was also wearing those rose-colored glasses…well, realism and preparing for any potential crises is pretty practical sometimes, too. And I’m right smack in the middle of a whole hell of a lot of forced changes that I am sure won’t be localized to California.

            I pray I am wrong, but I’m ready in case I am right.

          • Ann Kreilkamp says:

            Just saw this post of yours, after I saw the more recent one . . . My heart goes out to you and everyone there who is experiencing the PTSD aftermath of the fires. I agree, California won’t be the last place to be “visited” by ruination. Around here, if the electricity goes out, so would heat and light, and AC, which would mean the entire place would be mold invested within weeks! “Forced to leave”: haven’t ever considered that. I know people say, “keep a full tank of gas,” and I try to keep at least a half talk of gas, but not so I can cut and run, but so I can get to a nearby lake, if need be, for water!

            I’ve been an apocalyptic thinker for so long, assuming that everything would have gone to hell a long long time ago, that the entire subject almost feels jaded to me, even as we ramp up closer and closer to its eventuality!

          • Anthony says:

            Sorry to double post but I just wanted to summarize: you are definitely working on the long-term answer that the world so desperately needs.

            My “contribution” will be to make sure as many people as possible make it past the acute troubles going on at this time, so that they then can engage in the long-term solution you are pioneering.

            You are focused on solving the long-term chronic problem, while I am emphasizing the acute. Both will be needed, I think; but if not, then I will still have time to work on your solution. I want to make sure as many as possible get there first, however.

          • Ann Kreilkamp says:

            Excellent! Love this way of looking at the situation. And yes, I agree, you are needed, I am needed, everyone is needed. If each one would follow our passions, truly follow them, the world would change in a heartbeat. . . well, maybe not that quickly, but for sure there would be a new feeling in the air, an energized people, each one following our own nature, cooperating with each other, just as species do in all of nature.
