The Earth Is Dead We Killed It | By Anonymous | September 4, 2019 - 15:52 | Posted in /B/ | 1 Comment

This is one of the shortest chapters from my book, explaining how some of the worlds smartest men were also some of the dumbest when you really take the time to think about it. It details how, despite our wealth and resources, humans just cant seem to help by keep poisoning the very planet we live on.

The Earth Is Dying & We Killed It:

This next bit is another throwback from many years ago, seemingly in a different lifetime than the one I’m living today. The theme revolves around the central concept of human “ingenuity” and humanity in general, essentially breaking down how stupid of a species we are or have become – especially in light of some of humanities ‘greatest’ inventions. I hope one day, hundreds of years from now, people can look back and read this and think, Brian Dunn was right all along! What the hell were humans of the 20th-21st century thinking! Don’t understand what I am getting at yet? You soon will.

Elon Musk and SpaceX

The other year I went out my way to make an internet meme mocking Elon Musk and his “revolutionary” new vision to leave planet Earth behind and begin the colonization of Mars, an endeavor which would no doubt take decades of planning and untold trillions of dollars in investment to actually pull off. However, while this might sound “cool,” I want you to actually take a moment to intellectually break this down for a moment. I mean think about it, one of the planets smartest and richest men is proposing investing countless trillions of dollars and decades of planning into a project designed to colonize another planet, when there are still regions of this planet suffering from a severe lack of resources, infrastructure, investment and development, resulting in famine, disease, War, death and destruction? In what world does that make any sense?

As I put forward, Elon Musk may be one of the worlds smartest and innovative men right now, but that sounds completely stupid when you take the time to put it all in perspective. At least in my opinion, how about we learn to perfect life on this planet first, before we go ahead and try to start colonizing another one – shall we?

NASA and Pretty Pictures

Along the same lines as Elon Musk and SpaceX, it has always continued fascinating me the amount of time, money and resources the US Government continues to pump into NASA’s budget each year. I mean, don’t get me wrong, who doesn’t like looking at all of those “bad-ass” photos of far off galaxies and stars being released by NASA every year?

We all get it, those pictures are pretty freaking sweet. But I mean honestly, what good are these pictures? What purpose are they actually serving us or society? Outside of something pretty to look at from time to time, was it really worth hundreds of billions of dollars in investment and decades of research/study to get? Looking around at some of the problems currently facing the world today, by comparison, it hardly feels worth it. What else could have we accomplished with all those great minds and with all of that money I wonder? The way I look it, every penny spent looking at objects that might as well be an infinity billion light years away, that no one will ever actually get to physically see or visit, is one less penny spent investing in this world or humanity itself. I really I just don’t understand our collective logic.

Carbon Monoxide & Green House Emissions

Here’s another rant, this time revolving around the invention of the good ole combustible engine. No doubt it was something which was undeniably revolutionary, but which has since come back to haunt humanity. Before moving on, truth be told, I first got the idea to write about this notion after coming across so many “Chemtrail” conspiracy theorists online. It always fascinated me the lengths to which these people would go to ‘raise awareness on behalf of this issue. They all rant and rave and endlessly complain about all of the planes/jets occasionally flying over their heads every week, but not once have I ever heard a single one of them complain about all of those “Carbon Monoxide Trails” being left behind by every single car that drives past them everyday. Where’s their logic in that? Where are their priorities at I wonder?

I mean think about it, every individual car on this planet is currently spewing out enough Carbon Monoxide to kill its owner every single day/time it is turned on. Don’t believe me? Seal yourself inside your garage and leave you car running for a while – trust me, it’ll be fun! I remember joking once about going down to the US patents office and applying for a new invention. When they asked me what my patent was for I would tell them “I’m going to invent a Carbon Monoxide machine.” Going to explain how you would just simply turn it on and magically it would begin turning life giving Oxygen into life ending Carbon Monoxide. Isn’t that exciting!? Of course they would call me crazy and kick me out of the building, but is that not the same exact patent every engine manufacturer on Earth keeps getting granted year after year?

Now think for a moment about every single combustible engine currently on this planet and throughout time, that’s a lot of combustible engines all spewing out a ton of Carbon Monoxide. However, no one ever seems to care or think twice about this because once we are outside and turn them on, all of the Carbon Monoxide just seems to “harmlessly” float away with the wind. Well, the problem is that the wind on this planet operates within a closed loop, and whatever just harmlessly floats away from one location ends up in another location. Over a long enough time, all of these emissions and greenhouses gas get caught up in the atmosphere, mix together, homogenize and come back to effect everyone in humanity full circle. As a result, recent studies claim 92% of the world population is currently breathing contaminated air.

Continuing with the central premise of this chapter, once again, while it no doubt took a great mind to ultimately come up with and invent the combustible engine, was it really such a good idea for the world/society in the long run – in retrospect? I mean, none of this is to mention the societal impact/damages caused by years of War over natural resources needed to sustain combustible engines, such as oil and gas, nor the environmental damages caused trying to mine or manufacture these same resources – which have irreparably damaged our planet in entirely separate ways over the decades.

With that established however, if the combustible engine and its ravenous need for oil consumption wasn’t enough to convince you of humanities failings just yet, then buckle up because its about to start getting even darker…..

Fukishima & Nuclear Radiation/Waste In General

It is an undeniable truth that one of humanities “greatest” inventions was the advent of nuclear technology/power. However, even though it took some the worlds greatest minds to realize, in retrospect, has there ever been a dumber invention? For example, consider the following evidence.

Around 80 years after it was first invented, not only have we had several major meltdowns over the decades – Fukishima, Chernobyl. The Mile Island, Kyshtym – but we are already facing major problems/setbacks in regards to nuclear storage. Less than 100 years after its invention, we cant even contain some of the worlds largest hazardous waste dumps/fields, and the waste will “only” remain radio-active for, oh I don’t know, say the next hundreds of thousands to millions of years into the future – give or take. Just imagine, if we cant contain nuclear waste here in the present, less than 80 years after its advent, how the hell can anyone possibly justify producing/storing more and more of it throughout the future? Its as if these scientists had no foresight or regard for future Earth whatsoever.

As if Chernobyl wasn’t bad enough, the single worst environmental disaster in all of human history occurred on March 11th 2011, and has been negatively the world ever since. While there has indubitably been a lot of damage control in the international media regarding the incident over the years, it remains an indisputable fact that the Pacific Ocean has more or less been destroyed for the remainder of human history – at least on this planet, right Elon?

For anyone whom may be unfamiliar with the history, on March 11th 2011 the Fukushima power plant in Japan was hit by a tsunami – an event leading a complete meltdown of its reactors. On through to today however, despite the best laid plans of countless inventors, contractors and Government agencies worldwide, the situation at Fukushima has still never been fully remedied and the nuclear power plant continues to leak radioactive groundwater into the Pacific Ocean every single day. At this point, it’s considered scientifically impossible to stop. Perhaps more importantly, at the time of this book in 2019, trace amounts of Fukishima’s radiation have already been found off the coast of Hawaii and California, on down through the Philippines.

The is a situation is only made more troubling by the fact that nuclear radiation does not just simply sit on top of water like an oil spill, rather, nuclear radiation mixes in with water and becomes apart of it. Meaning that there will never be a way to clean up, remove or separate said radiation from the oceanic waters – the radioactive water will quite literally remain a permanent part of the Pacific Ocean for the remainder of history, and the situation will only continue to deteriorate and grow larger over time.

If you think I am just some crazy conspiracy theorist or paranoid alarmist in regards to this matter, please review the evidence provided below. But hey, if you still aren’t persuaded or think I’m just some crazy person after that, then keep-enjoying them scrumptious Pacific crab legs buddy! You’ve earned them!

The Highlights

Perhaps even worse is the fact that we continue to exhaust our fossil fuel reserves at alarming rates, destroying our planets environment while genociding its ecology. In fact, as was reported by the World Wildlife Fund in 2018, the population of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, and amphibians on Earth, on average, has collectively declined 60% over the course of the last 40 years. In South and Central America alone, for example, 89% of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians have been killed off over this same time – representing the single greatest population decline of any region on the globe.

Moreover, there has been an 83% decline/reduction in freshwater species since 1970 and the Earth is estimated to have lost about 50% of its shallow water corals over the past 30 years. It’s also estimated that 6 billion tonnes of fish and invertebrates have been taken/eaten out of the worlds oceans since 1950 and 20% of the Amazon rain forest alone has been cut down or destroyed over the last 50 years. According to other estimates, only 25% of the Earth’s combined landmass remains classified as undeveloped by human activity in 2018 – calculated to decline to around 10% by the year 2050. Perhaps most worrisome in the immediate future is that fact that the recent decline of the worlds bee population represents the single greatest threat to soil biodiversity and crop production world. Lastly, accounting for energy resources, clean water, food, medicines and much more, global corporations now make on average $125 trillion dollars per year exploiting natural resources for commercial gain. Another yay Capitalism moment, right?

In terms of outright extinction, a 2019 study conducted by the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) found that around 1 million animal and plant species are now threatened with extinction, many within just the next few decades. Additionally, the average abundance of native species in most major land-based habitats has fallen by at least 20%, more than 40% of amphibian species, almost 33% of reef-forming corals and more than 1/3 of all marine mammals are also threatened with extinction. While the picture is less clear for insect species, evidence suggests 10% of all species are on the verge of extinction. As for what we do know, at least 680 vertebrate species had been driven to extinction since the 16th century and more than 9% of all domesticated breeds of mammals used for food and agriculture had become extinct by 2016, with at least 1,000 more breeds still threatened.

However, the sad reality of the matter is that the more mammals, animals, sea creatures and insects we kill off, the more it only serves to ‘benefit’ humans. For example, for those of you whom might not have been aware, humanities global populations in 2019 is at an all time high – accelerating at rates unprecedented throughout history.

For example, putting everything into perspective, in 2019 the global population sits at a little over 7.7 billion individuals – up 700 million from this time in 2010 alone. For some perspective on this figure, it is estimated that there were just 700 million people on planet Earth in total in the year 1760 – a 1,100% rise in the human population in just about 250 years time. Just for a little more perspective on this issue, around the time when Jesus walked Earth there was only estimated o be roughly 150 million individuals alive worldwide. Just think about these statistics for a moment. Is it any wonder why so many species, wildlife and wild-lands have been destroyed recently? I mean, all of these humans have to spread out somewhere and eat something right? There just simply isn’t enough room on this planet for wild life when we humans have our needs to fulfill, right?

Unfortunately, in their quest to fulfill our own needs, not only are humans genociding the Earths ecology, but they are also poisoning its atmosphere and oceans – whilst also consuming/depleting fossil fuels and natural resources at alarming rates. Ironically, humans are destroying our own assets/resources whilst simultaneously increasing populations, which will be dependent on those same resources. It appears to be a never ending cycle and recipe for disaster, which will only continue to grow worse over time. The worst part is that almost no one seems to care about this issue or reversing it, or would know how to go about morally accomplishing the feat even if they did. I mean, how do you go about decreasing human populations globally, ethically? War, genocide, spreading pandemic, causing famine? Not exactly humane, is it? What would you recommend? Eugenics and selectively breeding humans? Alright Nazi sit down, thanks for sharing.

We humans like to fancy ourselves the most intelligent beings in the universe, but when I look around at the state of the world and humanity today, I find this sentiment to be both ironic and frightening – all at the same time.

I’d like to share a revelation that I’ve had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you’re not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You’re a plague.Agent Smith, The Matrix (1999)

 

The Failures of Green Energy

This next bit is a revelation I arrived at a few years ago while working for an old boss. It tells the tale of why green energy has failed us, continues to fail us and more prevent us from evolving forward in the future. I include it here today to give you a better sense of perspective where I’m coming from today.

A few years back I represented a 110 acre land owner in the pursuit of potentially opening a wind farm high up on the hill in Hopkinton, New Hampshire. Believe it or not however, when the idea was presented to the town as a vote, the overwhelming majority of townspeople voted the idea down and refused to support it – this also wasn’t an isolated incident. The more I travel, the more people I talk to, the more I hear people complain about things such as wind farms. They are such an eye soar they say, they are soo loud they say, and some people maintain that simply living within the radius of a wind farm is enough to give people adverse health effects as a result. It seems endless, no one wants it.

But that’s just it though, the entire problem with ‘green energy’ in the first place, everyone keeps making up excuses why they don’t want it, don’t want to buy it, invest in it or see it developed. It’s systemic in our society but almost no one seems to realize it. For example, it costs more to install solar panels on your roof than asphalt – so next to no one does it. Wind farms are too much of an eye soar and are too noisy so communities don’t want to see them built. Electric cars don’t drive fast enough so the vast majority of Americans continue to buy gas powered vehicles – so on and so forth.

Said in reference to the decline in gas price before the end of Obama’s Presidency, I once remember listening to a comedian who joked, “soon the price of a gallon of water will cost more than a gallon of gas” and the crowd erupted in cheer! I joked to myself, people sure do love their fossil fuels! That is also my point though. Much in line with my points about Capitalism and corporate greed, we’ve also incentized our economies to destroy our own habitats to boot. The truth of that matter is that, whether anyone likes to admit it or not, the biggest problems facing green/renewable energies in the future is not a matter of corrupt politicians, big oil or big business holding the industry back, but rather a lack of investment from society itself. Green energy and tech has existed on the markets for quite some time now, we can all begin to start improving the world in our own small way, it’s just that no one actually puts their money where their mouth is. It appears as though unless green technology is somehow mandated on society by Government regulation, almost no one is going to be willing to buy it in the free market.

 

The White Lie of Climate Change

As a millennial, for over 20 years now, nearly my entire life I have seen the public bombarded with story after story about climate change and rising sea levels. When I was in school in 1994 for example, at the age of 8 years old, I remember having to write a story about sea levels rising and an increase in hurricanes from the Atlantic – yet over 20 years later now, nothing has ever happened. Over the years Presidents and Vice Presidents alike from all corners of the globe have promised us that “climate chaos” will happen and tell us we’re “facing a planetary emergency approaching a point of no return” or that “the arctic will be ice free by the summer of 2013.“ The men behind such remarks had set specific timelines for such catastrophe’s, yet these dates have already come and passed harmlessly. On top of this, despite news of their predictions being published everywhere, no one ever has written a follow up after the fact describing how and why those predictions were nonsense or never came true in the first place. I wonder why that is?

It is not the purpose of this article to ‘deny climate change’ or anything like this. Anyone with any sense about them understands the globe is warming and humanity must take dramatic steps to clean up our world as we move forward. The purpose of this article meant to open people’s mind to the possibility that a white lie, even if told for the right reasons, is still a lie. As well as to point out how many people/governments are directly benefiting from misleading climate change rhetoric at the current moment in time.

In 2016 I remember reading a study describing how a loss of antarctic ice could potential double the rate of sea level rise by the year 2100. This study also happened to get international press with nearly every major news source around the world covering the story. However, the fact of the matter is that no one walking on Earth today will be around to ever verify such claims – which is why I found the whole ordeal very strange. Even the publishers of the study admitted “these projections show Antarctica would be stable, if we can meet the goals of the recent Paris Agreement.” These statements are extremely telling.

What hasn’t gotten international press is the fact that Antarctic sea ice levels have actually set all time record high levels, several times congeruently over the last decade. In fact, did you know that antarctic ice has been growing relatively constantly since records began in 1979? Antarctic sea ice growth can even be verified by NASA. However, the post about 2100 and the Paris agreement which got so much international press was not actually based of any facts or scientific evidence at all, but was merely just a ‘what if’ scenario – asking the question what would happen if the antarctic ice sheets started to melt? Therefore, the subject was completely subjective, based on fictional scenarios and directly referenced the political agendas of the United Nations. Yet, you go back and look and you’ll see how fear mongering headlines like “Scientists nearly double sea level rise projections for 2100” actually trended and swept across the globe. So, the question remains, why do so many people hear about stories like this but almost no one publishes stories about sea ice growing? This is what I refer to as the white lie of climate change. Articles and video’s funded for political reasons, just for issues instead of candidates. Always take them with a grain of salt.

Yes, it’s true that the last few years were some of the warmest years ‘on record’ and yes, it’s true that carbon levels are rising. At the same time, we continue to pollute our planet at appalling levels, wildlife is being killed off at alarming rates and our climate is slowly changing. But, as I would like to point out, it’s also true that planet Earth has been hotter than it is today, it has been colder than it is today and carbon levels have been higher then we see today. The climate has also changed here on Earth several times over the millenia, remember Pangaea? So, did evil corporations and big business/big oil cause all of the planets fluctuations millions of years ago? Did a lack of tax revenue and lack economic sanctions cause it? No, of course not. So why do you just assume they’re responsible for all of this today? Because they are wealthy?

While we would all like to improve our planet, reduce pollution, cut carbon emissions and save lives, we have to ask ourselves a moral question. Is a white lie even if told for the right reasons immoral? Is it unethical to over exaggerate and deliberately embellish climate change stories in order to spurn people to make a change occur faster? Perhaps as a journalist I see this differently then most, but I happen to believe we can still change the world while presenting factual information to the public in the process.

I view climate change hype machinists in the same way I view protesters who sink boats full of humans to save a whale or the “professional disruptions” who go to political rallies just to start street fights. They all believe they’re doing the right thing, performing activism on behalf of a noble cause, but the actions they use to do so are completely misguided and immoral. To all the authors out there: not every story/headline has to be the most important thing to ever happen, and not every story has to make it seem like the sky is falling – we do not have to exaggerate everything to make a point. True information does good. We can change the world and not lie or manipulate people in the process – that’s what I believe.

Did You Know?

Al Gore & David Blood’s co-founded Company made 218 million dollars alone marketing their film “An Inconvenient Truth” between 2008 – 2011. How about the fact that Al Gore’s net worth has increased from 700,000$ in 2000 to 173,000,000$ in 2015. All by profiting from climate change rhetoric. Did you know that not only did John Coleman, founder of The Weather Channel resigned his position, just so he could go to work publishing climate change myths he knew were wrong – which he felt shame for putting out on his network for years beforehand?

Also fact check Obama’s famous statement that “97% of Scientists Agree” about climate change, because taking a look at the study directly, only 32.6% of Scientists Believe in “Anthropogenic Global Warming.” Meanwhile 66.4% “Neither Supported Nor Dismissed This Claim,” meaning that not even the majority of scientist have come to a conclusion either way – never mind 97% of them, come on now. What I want to get through here is that while our planet needs fixing, the majority of information you hear about or have been feed since in the 1990’s is nothing more than political rhetoric meant to promote public/international programs – making issues appear far worse than they really to boost public support and make people live in fear. Give us more money, we’ll take your fear away! The Government’s got your back, homie! From Al Gore to different Government to the UN to many in between, extremist climate talk has made a lot of people a lot of money – but that’s also exactly my point.

Just do your own research, always take information produced from a politician or Government with a grain of salt and don’t necessarily believe everything you read – except for this book. 🙂
