We are in a heap of trouble…

Today’s explosive increase in human CO2 emissions and warming of the oceans are recreating the conditions of the great Permian extinction 300 million years ago

resistWe are in a heap of trouble and things will get much worse before they get better.

Forest loss is the tip of the iceberg… 663 million people – 1 in 10 – lack access to safe water and we have declining air quality, collapsing fish stocks and are suffering extinctions and species loss while oceans are dying and seas rise.

So, instead of addressing these issues we spend trillions killing millions for billionaires… in American wars on nations whose people have not attacked us.occupy
The United States of America is officially bankrupt and our pretend money will not support official fictions. We know dozens of unprovoked and expanding wars of aggression will result in the economic bottom falling out between 2025 and 2030. This will lead to a global economic depression unlike any in recorded human history.
In response to these collective threats, a bold and daring 18% of the American people elect a narcissist, neo-fascist, clueless, racist, ranting, orange misogynist.

He’s like a teenager on steroids with his finger on the red button.

 
Sigh… A heap of trouble indeed.

Time

Time heals all wounds…

“Here we are, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why.”
Kurt Vonnegut

einstein
“Time is an illusion.”

Albert Einstein


Is Time on our side? 

Time…   comes in many flavors…

William Faulkner

“The past is never dead. It’s not even past.”

William Faulkner, Requiem for a Nun

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwYX52BP2Sk

Time may be on our side, an illusion or beyond our ken, but the laws of physics say time travel is possible.



Some explorers may embark on a voyage through time… or time travelers may discover us….

“The great 20th century scientist Albert Einstein developed a theory called Special Relativity. The ideas of Special Relativity are very hard to imagine because they aren’t about what we experience in everyday life, but scientists have confirmed them. This theory says that space and time arHistory_Einstein_for_end_of_Nuclear_Proliferation_Speech_SF_still_624x352e really aspects of the same thing—space-time. There’s a speed limit of 300,000 kilometers per second (or 186,000 miles per second) for anything that travels through space-time, and light always travels the speed limit through empty space.

Special Relativity also says that a surprising thing happens when you move through space-time, especially when your speed relative to other objects is close to the speed of light. Time goes slower for you than for the people you left behind. You won’t notice this effect until you return to those stationary people.”

http://spaceplace.nasa.gov/review/dr-marc-space/time-travel.html

time_machine_041“Time travel used to be thought of as just science fiction, but Einstein’s general theory of relativity allows for the possibility that we could warp space-time so much that you could go off in a rocket and return before you set out.”   ~Stephen Hawking

“Look at anyone’s bookcase at home, no matter how modest, and you’re going to find a book that contains wisdom or ideas or a language that’s at least a thousand years old. And the idea that humans have created a mechanism to time travel, to hurl ideas into the future, it sort of bookends. Books are a time machine.”   ~Jonathan Nolan

Time travel is the concept of human movement between certain points in time, analogous to movement between different points in space, typically using a hypothetical device known as a time machine, in the form of a vehicle or of a portal connecting distant points in time.
Travel between these points would require some sort of teleportation.

  1. 10 TECHNOLOGIES AND METHODS FOR TIME CONTROL AND TIME TRAVEL
    (according to the Anderson Institute: full resource at: http://www.andersoninstitute.com/time-travel-secret-truth.htm
    Quantum Tunneling Time Travel Quantum Tunneling: is an evanescent wave coupling effect that occurs in quantum mechanics. The correct wavelength combined with the proper tunneling barrier makes it possible to pass signals faster than light, backwards in time.  Gamma-Magnetic Field Time Travel Circulating Light Beams: can be created using gamma and magnetic fields to warp time. The approach can twist space that causes time to be twisted, meaning you could theoretically walk through time as you walk through space. 
    Near-Lightspeed Time Travel Near-Lightspeed Travel: has the ability to significantly dilate time, sending an accelerating traveler rapidly forward in time relative to those left behind before her travel. The closer to the speed of light, the further into the future the travel.  Wormhole Time Travel Wormholes: are hypothetical areas of warped spacetime with great energy that can create tunnels through spacetime. If traversable they would allow a traveler to quickly move through great distances in space and also travel through time. 
    Alcubierre Warp Drive Time Travel Alcubierre Warp Drive: stretches spacetime in a wave causing the fabric of space ahead of a spacecraft to contract and the space behind it to expand. The ship can ride the wave to accelerate to high speeds and time travel.  Cosmic String Time Travel Cosmic Strings: are a hypothetical 1-dimensional (spatially) topological defect in the fabric of spacetime left over from the formation of the universe. Interaction could create fields of closed timelike curves permitting backwards time travel. 
    Faster-than-Light Time Travel Faster-than-Light Travel: is a controversial subject. According to special relativity anything that could travel faster-than-light would move backward in time. As the same time, special relativity states that this would require infinite energy.  Tipler Cylinder Time Travel Tipler Cylinder: uses a massive and long cylinder spinning around its longitudinal axis. The rotation creates a frame-dragging effect and fields of closed timelike curves traversable in a way to achieve subluminal time travel to the past. 
    Time-warped Field Time Travel Time-warped Fields: use energy within curvatures of spacetime around a rotating mass or energy field to generate containable and controllable fields of closed-timelike curves that can move matter and information forward or backward in time.  Casimer Time Travel Casimir Effect: a physical force arising from a quantized field, for example between two uncharged plates. This can produce a locally mass-negative region of space-time that could stabilize a wormhole to allow faster than ght travel. 


    “The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.” Albert Einstein

    Teleportation and Time: traveling


    timetravelkatoIf Einstein’s version of the universe is correct—and experiments done over the last century suggest that essentially it is—then the fictionalized feats based on his theories might be possible as well. The potential has become so tantalizing that serious physicists now regularly comment on Einstein-based technologies in the most august journals of their field.

    One of the most insightful of such speculators is Michio Kaku, a physicist at the City University of New York. Einstein’s scientific legacy, Kaku points out, has already formed the basis of many incredible inventions, including the laser and the global positioning system. But what would it take to reach the next level, developing such extrapolations of Einstein’s genius as the means to journey through wormholes, teleport through space, or travel back and forth in time? Scientists have already begun the work, and Kaku reports on their progress here.

    http://discovermagazine.com/2008/mar/teleportation-very-possible-next-up-time-travel


    timetravelTime Travel & Teleportation may be closer than Kaku imagines…

    Physicists Andrew Cleland and John Martinis from the University of California at Santa Barbara and their colleagues designed the machine — a tiny metal paddle just barely visible to the naked eye — and coaxed it into dancing with a quantum groove: First, they cooled the paddle until it reached its “ground state,” or the lowest energy state permitted by the laws of quantum mechanics (a goal long-sought by physicists). Then they raised the widget’s energy by a single quantum to produce a purely quantum-mechanical state of motion.

Facts matter…

“Bernie Sanders said very clearly in the debates with Clinton (and in public statements) that he intends to continue Obama’s 25 wars of choice against smaller and less powerful nations who did not attack us.”

Bernie Sanders not only been exposed, his proposals have not been “vetted” or endorsed by anyone.  Bernie Sanders said very clearly in the debates with Clinton (and in public statements) that he intends to continue Obama’s 25 wars of choice against smaller and less powerful nations who did not attack us.Exactly how sick this is… was recently revealed.

We have CI1984A proxy troops fighting U. S. Pentagon proxy troops and both sides die according to various attacks or invasions imposed by American military and intelligence resources and forces. This destroys infrastructure, homes, utilities, hospitals, universities and nations. Millions die for billionaires to deposit profits overseas.


Because we allow this to happen:  Wars for corporate profit.


Theses wars of aggression for profit are replicated around the globe.

This currently costs trillions of bernieandhillarydollars in taxpayer resources, to kill millions of innocents, create new enemies, destroy nations and bankrupt America. Unsustainable insanity.  For the past eight years these wars on nations who did not attack us have been orchestrated, and funded by Bernie, Hillary, Obama and the rest of the millionaires glee club.

https://thepeaceresource.wordpress.com/2016/05/12/the-rise-and-fall-of-american-empire/

We cannot continue unprovoked American aggression for profit. Everyday people are the only ones who can stop the insanity. We may not be in the Millionaires Club, b99%ut we are the 99% and we have the power.
The profiteers, war-cons and criminals who refuse to secure the peace and will undue this nation are only the 1%.

We can wake up the people and take back the planet with the Green New Deal.

With Dr. Jill Stein as president, we could have finally secured the peace, rebuilt the nation and restored the planet. Our lives are in our hands.
seas
Before 2030 we will be bankrupt, in retreat from more than 800 military bases, with rising seas and nuclear meltdowns.  When hundreds of nuclear sites are submerged, this will contaminate our already dying seas and it will be all over but the shouting.

Trump and Clinton are nuts.

But Dr. Stein was prepared.

Jill Stein could have provided mature leadership and a vetted plan: Stein is level-headed, better-educated, younger, more progressive, and smarter than Bernie, Hillary, Donnie and the last five presidents.steinhasbacks


The war-con 1% have been screwing up
for 36 years, 
It’s time to stand up and
take it back. Si se puede.

Extinction,

… A report by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has found that populations of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish have declined on average by 52 per cent in the last 40 years. And for freshwater creatures the situation is even bleaker, with population collapse of more than three quarters over the same period.

 

Half of world’s animals have disappeared since 1970

… A report by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has found that populations of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish have declined on average by 52 per cent in the last 40 years.  And for freshwater creatures the situation is even bleaker, with population collapse of more than three quarters over the same period.

Almost the entire decline is down to human activity, through habitat loss, deforestation, climate change, over-fishing and hunting.  Anyone born in in 1970 or before would have lived in a world teeming with animals compared to life today.

The situation is worst in low-income countries, where wildlife populations have declined by 58 per cent on average between 1970 and 2010. Latin American has the biggest declines, with 83 per cent of animals lost in 40 years.

Examples of wildlife that are suffering serious population collapse include forest elephants in Africa, which are facing habitat loss and poaching for ivory and could become extinct within our lifetime, and marine turtles which have seen an 80 per cent drop in numbers.

African Elephants are under threat from poaching and habitat destruction (ALAMY)

In the UK farmland birds have been badly hit by habitat degradation, with major declines in species such as corn buntings and grey partridge. However there is better news for red kites and otters which have seen numbers increase with conservation efforts, experts said.

The Living Planet Report also warned that human activity is outstripping the resources the Earth can provide, cutting down forests too quickly, overfishing and putting out more carbon dioxide than the planet can absorb, leading to climate change.

It is estimated Earth would need to 1.5 times larger to soak up the damage caused by man.

An estimated 110 tigers are killed every year for trade (ALAMY)

Professor Ken Norris, director of science of the Zoological Society of London, which updates the species database, said: “The scale of biodiversity loss and damage to the very ecosystems that are essential to our existence is alarming.

“This damage is not inevitable, but a consequence of the way we choose to live. Although the report shows the situation is critical, there is still hope. Protecting nature needs focused conservation action, political will and support from businesses.

“We need to explain to the public that what they do is directly behind the trends we are seeing.

“There is an enormous disconnect between going to the supermarket and putting fuel in your car and the global statistics we’re talking about here.”

The report calls on consumers to change shopping habits and only buy sustainable products such as fish with the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and timber with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certifications.

2.7 billion people live in river basins that experience severe water shortages at least one month a year (ALAMY)

The WWF also advises ditching the car in favour of public transport, increasing recycling and reducing consumption of meat and dairy products to cut down on the amount of land being deforested for farming.

And the charity is calling for measures including expanding protected areas, scaling up renewable energy production, and diverting investment from damaging activities, making consumption patterns more sustainable – all the more necessary as the human population grows.

11 Extinct Animals
We’ve Lost in Our Lifetime


Check out some of the
beautiful creatures
we’ve lost recently
in just the last 40 years.
 
http://www.popularmechanics.com/science/animals/g201/recently-extinct-animals-list-470209/


By Julie Gerstein
Oct 1, 2015

Some scientists say we’re in the middle of the sixth great extinction, and this one, unlike those that happened millions of years ago, is driven largely by the activities of humans. Just the last 40 years we’ve lost an incredible variety of species, like these amazing creatures.

1 Golden Toad (1989)
2 Zanzibar Leopard (1996)
3 Po’ouli (2004)  po’ouli bird
4 Madeiran Large White (2007)  butterfly
5 Tecopa Pupfish (1982)
6 Pyrenean Ibex (2000)
7 West African Black Rhinoceros (2006)
8 Javan Tiger (1979)
9 Spix’s Macaw (2004)
10 Round Island Burrowing Boa (1975)

11 Dutch Alcon Blue Butterfly (1979)

This Dutch butterfly — a subspecies of the Alcon Blue — was found mainly in the grasslands of The Netherlands. While closely related species (pictured here) still exist in parts of Europe and Asia, the last Dutch Alcon Blue was seen in the wild in 1979.

Cause of extinction: Increases in farming and building had a negative impact on the Alcon Blue’s habitat and caused it to lose its main food source.
