If You're Beating a Dead Horse: Can It Recover Its Life?

Time Magazine announced "The Earth Awards 2024" in its current April 2, 2024 issue now on newsstands and/or in your mailbox.  The editor celebrated some of the biggest names in entertainment, politics and the environment----for their work toward solving climate change.

John Kerry and Jane Fonda rose "BIG" on the pages of the magazine.  Their main topic: climate change.  Or, as this journalist names it: catastrophic climate destabilization.  Either way, humans and all life on this planet face one grueling, cruel and nasty ride.  

With the 100,000,000 (million) barrels of oil being burned every single day of the year, you can only imagine the amount of carbon and carbon particulate exploded into the atmosphere. When you add billions of tons of coal, the biosphere cannot clean itself fast enough.  From there, all those pollutants must fall encased in raindrops.  Most of it falls into our oceans.  All that carbon turns our oceans acidic, as well as warms the waters.  It creates havoc for reefs, fish species and plankton.  

This journalist learned about it from top scientists while I worked and lived in Antarctica for a summer on the ice 1997-98.  I wrote for the government paper, The Antarctic Sun.  I remember a man named Rutledge who showed me the climate change models and what they meant.  I said, "Why don't you broadcast this information to mainstream press?  Good grief, this kind of sudden climate destabilization will wreak incredible damage to the entire ecology of the planet."  He said, "That's your job."

When I returned to the states, I wrote a book, Antarctica: An Extreme Encounter. It still publishes on Amazon.  I announced the climate change dilemma to 60 Minutes, NPR and PBS. I tried to interview on all of them.  They wouldn't touch it.  The one thing I discovered about the mainstream media is that those folks deliberately choose to keep the American people in the dark.  As a result, nothing has been done about climate change for 25 plus years.  I can enumerate another dozen serious problems the mainstream press keeps from the American public.

Now, we're seeing our changing climate burn-up our summers. We're seeing it in 100,000-to-200,000-acre wildfires. We're seeing it scorch our landscape.  We're seeing it in 100 species a day suffering extinction, worldwide.  We'll see more of it as our electrical grids overload their capacity.  It's affecting every aspect of our civilization.

So now, you've got Joe Biden and/or his handlers because he really doesn't have a clue as to what's going on day to day because of his dementia----telling us to buy electric cars/trucks, to stop using gas stoves, turn down your thermostat, and more restrictions on our lives.

But what kills me stems from the fact that Jane Fonda, Joe Biden and/or his handlers, John Kerry and all the other big guns refuse to address: what's driving catastrophic climate destabilization.

While we're being forced toward carbon-neutral, China adds one coal-fired electrical plant every week of the year.  India very nearly the same. Hundreds of countries keep burning fuel to travel, heat, warm their food and warm their houses.  Why are they adding THAT many coal-fired electrical plants?  Answer: China adds 8,000,000 people, net gain, annually. India adds 14,000,000 people, net grain annually.

So, what drives the changing climate crisis that the mainstream media ignores and, in fact, suppresses?  Answer: human population growth is the single greatest driver of catastrophic climate destabilization.

"We must alert and organize the world's people to pressure world leaders to take specific steps to solve the two root causes of our environmental crisis—exploding population growth and wasteful consumption of irreplaceable resources.  Over-consumption and overpopulation underlie every environmental problem we face today."  Jacques-Yves Cousteau

How do you figure that our top leaders in Washington DC and our mainstream media can devote so much ink to this climate change predicament, but NOT address the driver?  How can Jane Fonda and John Kerry, along with the rest of them be THAT stupid?

Answer:  beats the hell out of me!

"The U.S. will set a record in the rate of rise—and fall of an empire. Between wide open borders and fall of the dollar and growing population against a declining resource base, the US will be defeated from within. Mobs will rule the streets in the nation that is now the third largest in the world and unable to support its population except by taking resources from other countries." Arnold Toynbee, historian 

You might think to yourself, "Yeah, but that's India and China's problem."

No, it's humanity's problem.  The third world adds 83,000,000 (million) people, net gain annually.  Why do you think environmental refugees are storming the borders of Europe, Canada and America?  Answer: they've overloaded their own countries' ability to feed, work and house such horrific numbers.

And now, as you can see on the nightly news, our country no longer possesses borders. We're no longer a country. We are a destination for the world's excess refugees.

Reality check: before Joe "Dementia" Biden took office, the United States accepted 1,000,000 legal refugees annually, 1,000,000 of our own babies, net gain annually, 500,000 illegal aliens, and 1,000,000 immigrant births annually for a total of 3,500,000 net gain, over deaths.  With Biden's open borders, we see 11 to 12 million illegal aliens now residing in America in the past 40 months. They overwhelm everything.  They are causing us to add 100,000,000 more people by mid-century to jump from 340,000,000 to 440,000,000 (million).  In a few words: our civilization faces cataclysmic consequences with THAT many people.

As you can see, Time Magazine interviewed Jane and John, but they won't interview yours truly or the 20 top experts that I've  recommended dozens of times over the past 25 years since I reported from Antarctica.

So, what will electrical cars and no more gas stoves solve as to changing climate?  Answer: none of it will do squat. They are fooling you, fooling themselves and fooling the future of children.

Therefore, if you keep beating a dead horse;  can it recover?  What do you think?

What's my guess as to the future of our civilization?  Answer: it's going to get really, really ugly.
