when it happens

6 October 2008

In case you all hadn't noticed, the world is falling apart. I posted here back on September 11th, 2007 that the finance world was going to fall apart. http://crucial-systems.com/For_those_of_you_that_dont_pay_attention_to_the_world_of_finance The reason I fled New York was that I could see quite clearly that the wheels were going to come off that wagon and the US may very well collapse into chaos. Alarmist, yes. That's what alarms are for. The solid truth is that the financial markets always precede the real ... more...

pan-dimensional beings experience things differently

11 December 2005

Wouldn't it be great if there were beings on earth who didn't experience events in the linear sequence of time, but instead experienced events sorted by Relevance. So while we were just enjoying what had happened or what was going to come up... they would be getting more and more excited or increasingly disinterested. Its the biggest human joke that we expect aliens to experience the same time scale as us, or even to experience time. Most people still expect ... more...

[[The Rastabomba]] said i buy a electric generator why on earth go buy a solar panel, a convertor, some storage batteries, and hooking up a simple propeller like a windmill to dat and sun not shine breeze blow and you generating power. don't take much. for $5000 you can put in a solar unit in your house which supply you with all the power you need. i have a little cabin up in the hills in jamaica, a little hut. ... more...

exponential growth

3 December 2004

What happens when growth approaches fixed limits and is forced to give way to some form of equilibrium? Are there choices before us that lead to alternative world futures? … Exponential growth does not continue forever. Growth of population and industrialization will stop. If man does not take conscious action to limit population and capital investment, the forces inherent in the natural and social system will rise high enough to limit growth. The question is only a matter of when ... more...

fossil fuel

3 December 2004

SURPRISE! The sudden -- and surprising -- end of the fossil fuel age will stun everyone -- and kill billions. Once the truth is told about gas and oil (it's just a matter of time), your life will change forever. Envision a world where freezing, starving people burn everything combustible -- everything from forests (releasing CO2; destroying topsoil and species); to garbage dumps (releasing dioxins, PCBs, and heavy metals); to people (by waging nuclear, biological, chemical, and conventional war); and ... more...

man and nature

3 December 2004

Perhaps the most widespread evil is the Western view of man and nature. Among us, it is widely believed that man is apart from nature, superior to it; indeed, evolution is a process to create man and seat him on the apex of the cosmic pinnacle. He views the earth as a treasury that he can plunder at will. And, indeed, the behavior of Western people, notably since the advent of the Industrial Revolution, gives incontrovertible evidence to support this ... more...

nuclear

3 December 2004

NUCLEAR Nuclear power generation is limited by a shortage of fuel: "Overall, uranium is relatively scarce in the earth's crust, at about 4 parts per million on average. Therefore, a significant expansion of nuclear power -- even the five-fold expansion widely canvassed before the incidents at Three Mile Island and (much more disturbing) at Chernobyl -- would out-run readily accessible supplies. These supplies include both deposits previously exploited but mothballed due to lack of current demand, and known high concentration ... more...

overshoot

3 December 2004

Australian writer Reg Morrison likewise foresees that overshoot and collapse is where humanity is headed. In his scenario (i.e. no formal model), the world population rises to about 7.0 billion in the 2036. Thence it plunges to 3.2 billion in 2090 — an average loss of 71.4 million people per year (i.e. deaths minus births) during 54 years. Given the current shape of the human population graph, those indicators also spell out a much larger and, from our point of ... more...

world model collapse

2 December 2004

Jay Forrester of MIT in 1970 built a world model "to understand the options available to mankind as societies enter the transition from growth to equilibrium." What happens when growth approaches fixed limits and is forced to give way to some form of equilibrium? Are there choices before us that lead to alternative world futures? … Exponential growth does not continue forever. Growth of population and industrialization will stop. If man does not take conscious action to limit population and ... more...

Solar towers in Australia

22 September 2004

The rastabomba recommends: A 1-kilometre high, no-emission, oxygen-producing, 200-megawatt Australian solar tower which will be built by 2009 at Buronga, 25 ks east of Mildura in New South Wales. As much power as a nuclear power plant. But in order to escape the tipping point of global warning we have to build one nuclear power plant (or other non-fossil fuel source) PER DAY. more...
