Consider this: The "Industrial Revolution" is slated to have 'Begun" in 1760. 1760 - That 259 Years.
259 years or roughly speaking 10 generations.
Geologically speaking that's an almost un-noticeable time frame, not even the blink of an eye.
But in 259 years the following has happened:
World Population: 1760 - ARO 730 Million
World Population: 2019 - 7.7 Billion
World Carbon Levels 1760 - ARO 275 PPM
World Carbon Levels 2019 - 415 PPM
To me, what is most stunning about all this is that the persons and institutions that
best represent "Homo-Sapiens" (Brain-Power) - Academician's, Scientists, Researchers,
are ignored, ridiculed and humiliated about reporting the facts. The Capitalists and Religious
set have "the answers".
How can ANYONE with half a brain reject the data? The Ice Core's? The water level rise? Increase Storm Intensity? Receding Glacier's? Extinction of large mammalian Megafauna (Elephants, Tigers, Lions, Polar Bears, and all the others). The Pacific ocean is a garbage dump, they have found garbage at the bottom of the Marianna's Trench.
How, HOW can people not see that the consumption propaganda that we are bombarded with every second of every day CANNOT continue? So what do we have - maybe 5 - 10% max of N American or Western Europeans get to "enjoy" this asinine wealth distribution?
I'm amused at how smug (repugnant really) Western Civilization is about the direction of our species. The west has convinced themselves that "Western Culture" is the "Apex" of Human Civilization.
REALLY? - Well lets talk about that for a moment:
According to Paleontologists Homo Sapiens have been around 200,000 to 300,000 years.
The Homo Sapiens occupying the planet apparently were reasonably good stewards of the environment.
Western man likes to refer to the people of these times as "Homo-Erectus, "Neanderthals:, Indigenous People
and of course in modern parlance: "Barbarians, Hunter Gatherer's, Indians" what have you.
Who the hell is the real barbarians? I mean who's the barbarian?? Who's destroying our species??
Not only do I think there is NO CHANCE for Industrialized Societies to prosper going forward I would re-emphasize "NOT A CHANCE IN HELL" This game may (may) have experienced a different outcome if 60 or 70 years ago, after WWII had world societies come together to embrace our natural world. That did not happen.
You think Technology is going to save you? LMAO - I'm afraid until someone invents the "Replicator" ala Star Trek the game is over my friends.
Sure, the Ultra-Rich, Powerful, Military / Industrial complex's may create temporary enclaves to "hold-out" but the fact is when the mans of production stop these assholes will get what's coming to them too, just may take a bit longer than for the rest of us.
Fucking ridiculous that ANYONE from ANY background can wallow in the lie that Homo Sapiens represent the "pinnacle" of earths "Biological Species Evolution". Insulting really.
I'll leave you with this from season 1 of "True-Detectives" -
Rust Cohle: I think human consciousness is a tragic misstep in evolution.
We became too self aware. Nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself. We are creatures
that should not exist by natural law. We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self, this accretion of sensory experience and feelings, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody,
when in fact everybody's nobody. I think the honorable thing to do is to deny our programming. Stop reproducing,. Walk hand in hand into extinction. One last midnight, brothers and sisters opting out of a raw deal.
