Exodus - It's Official - We're Past the Tipping Point.
By Lloyd Hart
Earlier this year it was reported that the southern oceans were now releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere instead of absorbing it and now with the publishing of a study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences showing that nature's ability to sink carbon dioxide emissions produced by human beings is dropping while at the same time the amount of carbon being put into the atmosphere is increasing from a variety of sources not just direct human production it is becoming clear that we are past the tipping point.
Carbon sinks lose ability to soak up emissions
In other words the domino effect of greenhouse gases being released into the atmosphere from other sources rather than just man-made sources such as methane from the melting permafrost and the from oceans has placed us in an accelerated warming period. A warming period that will bring with it ever increasing catastrophic climate events including radically long stretches of drought as we're beginning to see in two thirds of the United States of America.
Even though it doesn't have the incredible drama of category 3 storm making landfall on the coast of Mississippi and Louisiana as Hurricane Katrina did the drought that has struck a Southeast of the U.S. is catastrophic in nature. 3 million people will be without water in the metropolitan region of the Atlanta within 90 days and unless it rains 40 days and 40 nights the people of Atlanta will be doomed to exodus just like the people of New Orleans and the south coast of Mississippi.
New to Being Dry, the South Struggles to Adapt
Between the drought in the Southeast and the West in which catastrophic drop in water tables is occurring America is going to start to see a radical decrease in food production. Recently to well-known agricultural profs published an op-ed in New York Times asking America to spark up the farm fields in the Northeast region of United States. This signaled to me that agribiz is starting to catch up to what I've been saying for decades - that we are running out of groundwater. But instead of proposing to fix the problem by restoring wetlands along the Mississippi estuaries and across the Great Plains, replanting forests to create moisture traps and instead of dumping waste water into the sea from the great coastal cities and recycling that water back into that the system agribiz is now proposing an agribiz exodus to the north east's fallow fields from the failing croplands in the west and south.
I know it is probably heartbreaking for everyone to come to grips with reality that we are going to witness the total collapse of all the societal systems that we have created so that we might live above and beyond nature but come to grips we must. Many of us may not survive this period consequences but unless we stop what we're doing and strictly focus on re-engineering our lifestyles and reintegrating ourselves with nature we simply will radically reduce the amount of us that will survive through to the other side of this catastrophe.
With over 500,000 people having to evacuate from their communities in Southern California as a result of Santa Ana winds accelerated obviously by the effects of global warming and then pushing brushfires into being giant blowtorches will we continue to cut down the forests drying out the land even further to rebuild the homes that are burned to the ground as a result of drought continuing his vicious spiral to total collapse?
Catastropic Califonia Drought
I sit here wondering if human beings are actually going to recognize the danger were in. I keep thinking are human beings so detached from nature that they cannot see what is happening? Are human beings going to continue to go to work that continues to create nothing but our own destruction and collect salaries that feed life styles that can only lead to mass exodus and starvation? When will humans beings go on strike for the real economic feedback? A bountiful environment.
As best I can see the only people preparing for the collapse are the Generals. The generals are building up weaponry for and training personnel in mass crowd control. Hmm, food and water riots come to mind. Next year the Pentagon will spend 0 billion on what I consider a phony war - the war on terror. I have been saying from the very beginning that the generals are using the war on terror as cover for preparation for them and their political culture to survive the catastrophe brought on by global warming and climate change.
So if the generals can steal over half the U.S. budget for preparations of the catastrophe why can't the public have an equal amount of money toward planting forests, reestablishing wetlands, recycling waste water and redirecting America's labor force toward all of this work?
The answer is quite simple, the generals, the neocons and the neo conservative liberals inside the democratic party don't give a fuck about us and as far as they're concerned with either do as we are told or be left to starve in the exodus.
