Going Down Duped

Droughts. Floods. Severe storms. Heatwaves. Raging wildfires. Foul air & water. Inflation. Unemployment. The litany of the end times will only intensify in the coming years. And so the pressure on political leaders to “do something” will intensify. The easiest way to mollify is the path well-trod by politicians since democracy arose and “the people” felt entitled to an answer to their concerns.

Political Leadership Vacuum

The demise of humanity from accelerating climate change seems certain before the next century dawns and may come within the next 50 years. Those who dispute this prediction are riding a legacy of dither and denial championed by the political establishment for the past 6 decades.

Physical Forces

One of the miracles of life is the symphony of coherence during the development of complex organisms. Biologists misapprehend this miracle because they embrace the wrong paradigm of reality. The idea of “physical forces” is a conflation of impetus and artifact.

The Blood Network

The cells comprising the thin inner layer of blood vessels regulate blood’s many behaviors. This endothelium accomplishes its responsibility by sharing copious information in a self-organizing network.

Warming Baked In

The trend of global warming is baked in for decades because oceans absorb >90% of the thermal energy from greenhouse gas emissions. This heat atmospherically equilibrates over a 30+-year period.

Global Shortage

Insensible governmental response to the covid pandemic had scant benefit but many negative repercussions, ranging from public health to culture to economic malaise. The economic anarchy called capitalism is struggling back to its feet, crippled by its own inadequacies.

Drooping Albedo

The warmth of a planet partly depends on its albedo: how much of its starlight is reflected back into space (as opposed to absorbed). The higher the albedo, the cooler the planet. Earth’s albedo has been dropping.
