Consequences / Re: Prepping for Collapse

Which altruistic, higher human beings will control eugenics and the decision who is a dangerous psychopath?? Very dangerous path, especially with our history of institutionalizing women in the 1800 and 1900s because they did not conform to the male standards.

Very dangerous...no thank you

Every single author/thinker that has dealt with a collapse scenario has ended with the same script.

Just pray there is no collapse in the works. Otherwise the storyline is clear as the day...

If there are alt-right scum on the ASIF I am taking a walk.

In a free forum you cannot prevent anyone from dropping by. However the tone and content of discussion can only be based on empirical evidence, and the scientific principle ( in most threads ).  There many political threads that have been actively engaged in a dogmatic banter... I avoid those most of the time and only drive by to see who is who when the curtain has been pulled...

You don't have to walk . There many good folks here to make it worthwhile. Otherwise the loud bigots have won....

Trumpistan government reports there has not been any increase in forest fires in Alaska, reports of Bering Sea warming are false and the fishing industry is doing just fine, the fish stocks are full, "what of ,we do not tell, but they're full trust us.", a govt representative was heard saying.

Plus, because we stopped measuring, the bees are doing just fine and can handle all the toxic pesticides we can throw at them.

One has to be able to ignore the political discussion. I agree it has become too much but who am I to judge. One I know though, whoever is certain they are right is a hair from becoming dogmatic and one of the same too...

Arctic sea ice / Re: The 2019 melting season

It's not just the Pacific where there's a lot of melting going on. On the border between the Kara and Barents seas, the ice edge has gone from being a solid, compact line on 5 July to having lots of swirls of melting ice on 9 July. A wide band of the ice is also significantly darkened.

Ahhh... The famous goodbye waves....

Fram export  was higher than average in June.

Even more so relative to the dwindling amount of ice volume in the near CAB.

And some of the remain thick ice ( outside CAA ) has already tickets for the Fram Express...

Well Rod, you have joined in 2018. About 5 years after A-team and others. Memory can be a rather short given where the state of data and data analysis were back then. A-Team might have a unique style and very little patience with fools, but so are many others among us however his contributions are superior. In the era of the quick comment and blog and tweet everybody thinks themselves on par with experts. D-K in practice.

Laursen at counterpunch presents a case for abstention:

"non-voters have been sending an increasingly loud and consistent message for at least 50 years now: we’ve lost our faith in electoral democracy. "

"a deep disillusionment that’s been growing for decades with an electoral democracy that becomes less democratic all the time, a sclerotic and highly institutionalized two-party system"

"Voting affirms the present system. It signifies our assent ... It maneuvers potentially revolutionary social movements into unthreatening political channels (the best decision Black Lives Matter ever made was to not endorse candidates). It nudges us to blame specific policies and politicians, rather than take a desperately needed hard look at electoral democracy itself."

" The right to say No to the whole damn thing is the most powerful political weapon we have as members of this or any society, because it denies the State legitimacy. "

" the worst thing about voting: it distracts us from the need to explore, collectively, without mediation by governments or politicians, how we can manage our future. "

The power of no is what makes a Brexit possible...no voting is abdication of one's civic responsibility....

This is one of Trump’s vocal cheerleaders, sharing his thoughts on the cryosphere.

Swetnick said she witnessed efforts by Kavanaugh and others to get girls inebriated so they could be “gang raped” in side rooms at house parties by a “train” of numerous boys.

“I have a firm recollection of seeing boys lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting for their ‘turn’ with a girl inside the room. These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh.”

In her declaration, Swetnick recounts an alleged incident in approximately 1982 in which she says she was the victim of a “gang rape” at which Kavanaugh was present.

“During the incident, I was incapacitated without my consent and unable to fight off the boys raping me,” Swetnick says. “I believe I was drugged using Quaaludes or something similar placed in what I was drinking.”

Welcome to American Society:101 - the truth of it. 

Some girls didn't need to be drugged to get into it. Ever been to Spring break in Florida folks?

So let's round them all up and throw them all in jail for 'rape'? Yes let's, but you better raise Taxes to increase FBI funding by 10 fold and build enough jails to take the several millions more residents.

Yes, let's do to the 'good white guys' what has always been happening to the black guys. Lock 'em up for decades.

Truth hurts hey.

WTF man... Sexual assault is sexual assault period!! End of story... Who cares about color, status, wealth etc. Are you an apologist?? Get the hell out of here...classic line " they wanted it..." Moron...

No , I took them en route to Tokyo.
Amazing images, but how can they be of such quality?

Clear sunny sky when I took them, with the window shadowed by the plane's body. Dry air , clean window and decent cameras in smart phones.

Great images... really useful to put these mentally together with the other information.  Thank you.  Did you get them from Polar View?  I am having trouble downloading such images... the icons just keep flickering away.

Varoufakis on the Trump's economic policy:

"Armed with the exorbitant privilege that owning the dollar presses affords him Trump then takes a look at the trade flows with the rest of the G7 and comes to an inescapable conclusion: he cannot possibly lose a trade war against countries that have such high surpluses with the US (eg Germany, Italy, China), or which (like Canada) will catch pneumonia the moment the American economy catches the common cold."

" if the US can no longer stabilise global capitalism, he might as well blow up existing multilateral conventions and build from scratch a new global order resembling a wheel, with America its hub and all other powers its spokes – an arrangement of bilateral deals that ensures the US will always be the largest partner in each, and thus be able to exact a pound of flesh through divide and rule tactics."

Consequences / Re: Near Term Human Extinction
« on: June 09, 2018, 02:24:57 PM »
It still amazes me how even intelligent people such as on this forum cannot see the inherent destruction of industrial society.
Population, extinction rates, pollution of all kinds, greenhouse gases, casualties of war and atrocities etc all explode upon industrialization just as the famous Mann "hockeystick" does.
It still amazes me how intelligent people make wrong assumptions about other intelligent people.
What if we do see the inherent problems? What is it that you suggest in practice?

And we are here today , intelligent and educated, alive because of that industrialization, able to contemplate and share our opinion through this medium, not dying from deseases like prior to that industrialization. And extinction, pollution, large scale altering of local environments has been happening since the dawn of civilization. All the forests you see now in Europe are there because people found alternative source of energy instead of cutting every single bit down. They did not need industrial revolution to destroy their environment. The fact that we are contemplating clean sources of energy exists because of industrialization. The problem is that humans still act on a personal selfish level. Unless tgey can transcend that instinct and think about the whole , behaviors won't change. They can only be regulated, but such regulation as we are won't go down easily without a fight...

Policy and solutions / Re: Oil and Gas Issues

For Portugal :

Quote
All of the grid-connected PV systems installed in Portugal were able to cover around 1.7% of the country’s power production in 2017, according to recent statistics released by the Portuguese grid and gas network operator, Redes Energéticas Nacionais, SGPS, S.A. (REN).

Overall, renewable energies generated enough electricity to cover 40% of power generation, including domestic demand and export.

Hydropower accounted for 11% of total demand, while wind comprised the lion’s share of renewables, accounting for 23%. Biomass was the third source at 5%, while natural gas and coal were still able to cover 60% of last year’s demand, with a share of 34% and 26%, respectively.

https://www.pv-magazine.com/2018/01/04/pv-covered-1-6-of-portugals-power-production-in-2017/

A few days last year and the years before they were able to run on 100% renewables ( sunny and windy ) also they are connected for imports to the much larger Spain. Small country paradigms do not scale up with the same assumptions.

Again let me repeat this : if by 2040 100% of the global light transportion is EV the global oil and gas consumption will be the same as 2015 ( assuming current predicted population, GDP, efficiency, renewables grid trajectories )

Governments will have to push for more if they want a faster transition

US, Canada, Western and Eastern European countries have sold weapons to Ukraine. China and Russia and Israel to Myanmar and African dictatorships... , Russia has been selling weapons to both Greece and Turkey (S-300s) and Syria and Iran etc etc Nobody’s hands are clean.

As far as your assertion go, if one has read from multiple sources, they would have already known about both the weaponry support and the ultra right leaning Ukrainians. Similar to the types now governing Hungary, have been governing Latvia etc. The narratives of fear push its country to their pre-existing extremes (eg Ukranian nationalists had initially cooperated with Nazis)...

One narrative against another narrative. Who to believe and where the facts come from? And don’t tell me that the Russian media were offering deep analysis of the invasion in Ukraine instead he of a similar enabling narrative. A strongman instilling fear into a rebellion .... never happened before huh?
