Lately, I have been asked this question on several occasions. “Can our humanity really survive?” “Am I an optimist or a pessimist?”

My replies vary, as I don’t think there can ever be one single answer to this most urgent, the most important query.

Sometimes my answer gets influenced by location: where I am at that moment, or where I have been recently? In a Taliban-controlled village in Afghanistan, on a rooftop of a whorehouse in Okinawa while filming deadly US air force bases, or perhaps in an elegant café after visiting an opera performance with my mom, in Stuttgart or in Paris.

Whether I have been injured on a battlefield or in a slum, or have been applauded (most of the time, hypocritically) at some event where I was invited to speak? Have I been doing something ‘forbidden’, insane and dangerous, or merely processing my visual or written materials in Japan or in Bangkok?

Depending on the circumstances, I can sound negative or cautiously optimistic.

But the truth, the honest truth is: I am scared.

Not scared for my own life, or my health or even my well-being. My work and my struggle: nobody forced me into it; all that I do is my own choice. I want to do it and therefore I do it. And while I do it, as it is often not safe, I have to understand that my life may end, prematurely, or that something else, very unpleasant, could happen. I have to understand, and I do understand. Shit happens! Unfortunately, it happens often. But that’s not what makes me scared.

What truly frightens me is something else, something much more essential: this beautiful ‘project’, this incredible, gigantic experiment called humanity, could very soon end in ruins and up in smoke.

What scares me even more is that, perhaps, it is already ending although I sincerely hope that it is not.

I have no religion, and I have absolutely no idea whether there is some sort of afterlife or not. Afterlife, God: what I am absolutely certain of is that no one on this planet really knows any answers to these so-called big questions, and those who claim that they do,

Mish: Warning! Civilization At Risk, Crisis By 2040, And Other Nonsensical Climate BS

Mish: Warning! Civilization At Risk, Crisis By 2040, And Other Nonsensical Climate BS

16-10-18 09:48:00,

Authored by Mike Shedlock via MishTalk,

The amount of climate scaremongering in the past few weeks is stunning. And it’s all pure bullshit.

Check out these headlines.

Wall Street Journal: U.N. Panel Warns Drastic Action Needed to Stave Off Climate Change

New York Times: Major Climate Report Describes a Strong Risk of Crisis as Early as 2040

The Intercept: FOSSIL FUELS ARE A THREAT TO CIVILIZATION, NEW U.N. REPORT CONCLUDES

Earther: We Have a Decade to Prevent a Total Climate Disaster

MarketWatch: Drastic action needed to prevent climate catastrophe, U.N. panel warns

Daily Caller: AL GORE: ‘WE’RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME’ ON GLOBAL WARMING

Q&A

Q.What do all of those headline have in common?

A. They are all based on the same study. The study is riddled with huge numbers of blatant errors making the study for lack of better words, pure bullshit.

Riddled With Errors

Watts Up With That reports BOMBSHELL: audit of global warming data finds it riddled with errors

  • Almost no quality control checks have been done: outliers that are obvious mistakes have not been corrected – one town in Columbia spent three months in 1978 at an average daily temperature of over 80 degrees C. One town in Romania stepped out from summer in 1953 straight into a month of Spring at minus 46°C. These are supposedly “average” temperatures for a full month at a time. St Kitts, a Caribbean island, was recorded at 0°C for a whole month, and twice!

  • Sea surface temperatures represent 70% of the Earth’s surface, but some measurements come from ships which are logged at locations 100km inland. Others are in harbors which are hardly representative of the open ocean.

  • The dataset starts in 1850 but for just over two years at the start of the record the only land-based data for the entire Southern Hemisphere came from a single observation station in Indonesia. At the end of five years just three stations reported data in that hemisphere.

GLOBALIZED electronic monkey money frauds,

backed by the threat of force from apes

with atomic weapons. (((!!!)))

While those primates remain mostly the same, their harnessing electronic and atomic energy is something NEW.

Similar systems have been around for a long time:

“If history shows anything, it is that there’s no better way to justify relations founded on violence, to make such relations seem moral, than by reframing them in the language of debt — above all, because it immediately makes it seem that it’s the victim who’s doing something wrong.”

— David Graerber

There is nothing new  in systems based on being able to back up lies with violence achieving robberies, or that enforced frauds achieve symbolic robberies, which then go through vicious feedback loops of the funding of the political processes to do that even more so.

There is something new  in the ways that about exponentially advancing technologies are applied through those systems based on being able to enforce frauds in ways which are becoming about exponentially more fraudulent.

There is something new  in the degree to which that has become GLOBALIZED. Although the laws of nature do NOT change, since the only connections between the laws of men and the laws of nature are the abilities to back up legalized lies with legalized violence, the prodigious progress in physical science is something new  manifesting through something very old!

Also, that PRIVATIZED GLOBALIZATION is an increasing novelty because the money made out of nothing to pay for strip-mining the planet at about exponentially increasing rates is running into limits to growth manifesting as diminishing returns.

The comment is wrong there is

Nothing New Under The Sun.

Being able to back up electronic frauds with atomic force is something NEW, which never existed in previous human history. Furthermore, doing so has enabled the doubling down of that about exponentially increasing fraudulence to become much more flabbergasting compared to previous episodes of human history.

Moreover, that exponentially increasing fraudulence is also running into something radically NEW, which is the way in which GLOBALIZED strip-mining of a fresh planet’s natural resources is rapidly running into relatively objective limits to growth in ways which were never before encountered in their unavoidable GLOBALIZED ways as those are now.
