I just had a dream that it was the end of the world. So should I still go Christmas shopping or not?  Why bother, I thought.  But just to be on the safe side, I also asked the mysterious psychic Madam Jane for some input.  “Are my dreams and the Mayan calendars and all those Rapture freaks right?  Is the end of the world actually on its way?  Are we really all gonna die soon?”

“Yes of course,” replied Madam Jane.

Oh dear.

“The amount of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere is mounting at a catastrophic rate and will cause irreversibly-disastrous climate change in the next five years — and by far the biggest cause of this problem is the U.S. military and its allies.  Every time NATO bombs Libya and Americans bomb Pakistan and Israel bombs Gaza or a helicopter takes off in Afghanistan or a U.S. carrier fleet steams toward Syria and the Persian Gulf, we move one step closer to irreversible climate change,” stated Madam Jane, swaying back and forth with her eyes closed.

“Would it help at all if I had my car smog-checked today?” I then asked her hopefully.  Madame Jane just rolled her eyes.   “We’re doomed,” she replied.

So.  How do I want to spend my last days here on Earth?  Not a clue.  If you knew that seven billion people had approximately five years to live before climate-change-caused floods started pouring in from our rivers, and deserts started taking over our farmlands and oceans started drowning our coastal cities and a dreadful ice age started to set in, what would you do?

“I’d move to Hawaii,” replied Madam Jane.  Not me.  I’d buy hip-waders, ear muffs and really warm coats.

PS:  According to a recent AlterNet article entitled “Game Over for Planet Earth,” we’re all gonna be fried like fish in a skillet first before we even get a chance to freeze to death or drown.

AlterNet says, “[Here’s a] prediction offered by Fatih Birol, chief economist at the International Energy Agency:  Without an effective international agreement to staunch greenhouse gases within five years, the door will close on preventing a potentially disastrous rise in the planet’s temperature.”

PPS:  Madam Jane’s ominous-sounding and doom-like claim that irreversible climate change is only five years away is actually erroneous.  And AlterNet’s five-year claim is wrong too.  According to the Christian Science Monitor, irreversible climate change is already here.

“Even if all the world’s smokestacks and tailpipes were to suddenly stop spewing CO2, if all the trees everywhere were to be left standing, and if all the remaining coal, oil, and gas were to stay in the ground [and the American war-machine would suddenly stop spewing CO2 like there’s no tomorrow as well], the planet would still be feeling the effects of global warming a millennium from now.”

PPPS:  How can we keep cheering on American wars abroad — without bringing those wars back home to us too, like the recent violent shootings in Oakland and the recent pepper-spraying at U.C. Davis?

My Christmas shopping may just have to wait.

EXTRA!  EXTRA!  Madam Jane also predicts that the “American war” on Iran is about to happen too!

Remember back when, long before the war on Iraq was declared, millions of tons of war material was being amassed at various East Coast military bases here in the U.S.?  Well, Madam Jane states that they are at it again.  “Long endless lines of container trucks are currently pouring into supply depots all over the East Coast.”  Oops.

Plus America’s bottom-kissing “yellow journalism” media is already geared up to make Iran look like the ultimate bad guy — just as it did right before Bush’s illegal invasion of Iraq.

And not only that but, according to Middle East specialist David Pratt, the video game Battlefield 3 has just come out with a brand new version — starring good old Iran as the penultimate evil villain.  It just doesn’t get any more “War Profiteers Gone Crazy” than that!

And when Iran does get attacked, just THINK of all the air pollution that will be released!  Good grief.  Then Battlefield 3 will have to put out an even newer version — featuring deadly hand-to-hand combat with radioactive smog.

From Sue [regarding even MORE air pollution]:  US government openly admits arming Mexican drug gangs with 30,000 firearms — but why?:  It is now a widely-reported fact that under the Obama administration, U.S. federal agents actively placed over 30,000 fully-functional weapons into the hands of Mexican drug gangs, then halted all surveillance and tracking activities of where those weapons were going.

  1. Jane, while we can’t adverse the changes to the climate, if we laid down our arms now and prepared for the effects, it doesn’t have to mean Universal doom. The greatest effects are going to be on the coastal cities and river based industry. They will flood. Have no doubt about it. How well they survive depends on how well they prepare for it. We have the technology to build domes, canals, filtering systems that will help balance out our woes with nature’s wrath. It’s whether or not we choose to get off our hands now and start initiating the healing process that counts.

    The coastal cities constitute the majority of our urban population, which contains the majority of our teeming billions. Certainly, within this perspective, “we’re all going to die”, but not in the perspective of skilled survivalists who are already living off the grid and away from urban development. Nor for those who have developed a consciousness of the global climate change and are industriously making their own preparations. Some of them may die, but not all, and the ones who survive will adapt.

  2. Great job, Jane. Very good points, and I think people do underestimate the effects that nature will have in the upcoming war and generational change.

  3. Be that as it may, quite frankly there’s nothing any of us can do about the climate change phenomena until the present power structure is completely demolished – assuming that it’s not too late already to stop it.

    All I have to say is prepare to survive to the best of your ability through means I have already suggested a number of times here – really, what else is there for us to do but attempt to ride out the storm?

  4. This may be wishful thinking on my part, but I don’t think the US will attack Iran. No, they’re smarter than that..

    I know firsthand that a few years ago Iran set up a military base at Jask for the sole purpose of controlling the strait of Hormuz.

    I think it’s safe to assume that they are perfectly capable of closing off the strait, possibly for good, if threatened. What would this do to oil prices?

    Also, Iran presumably has 20 million (volunteer) Baseej militia. Eight million (payed) Revolutionary Guards..

    Apparently 60-70 percent of Iran’s population is under 30.

    These people didn’t just decide to defy the global super-powers helter-skelter and out of the blue. They know what they are doing.

    They have stood opposed to the capitalist imperialist powers for over 30 years, practically all alone.

    They have been sanctioned and isolated to an absurd degree, which seemingly has only pushed them towards independence and self-reliance.

    And in this time of worldwide financial crisis, they are doing just fine.

    The US (via it’s puppet Iraq) failed to take out Iran at a time when they were pretty much totally f#$%ed up. What makes them think they could do any better today?

    The Iranian people are united on such a deep level, and in such a way that I believe most western people would have a hard time understanding. I suppose it could have something to do with the fact that they’ve been a nation for 2500 years.. but who knows.

    All in all, a war with Iran is likely to get very messy. Surely the empire understands this, right?

    I mean, they are failing miserably in Afghanistan, which is like Iran’s less advanced (and relatively disadvantaged) cousin today.

    I really hope this doesn’t sound like some pro-Iranian propaganda. I am pro-truth and pro-humanity.


  5. I do believe that the earth is going to give us a big spanking but I do not believe that we are doomed. We will get through it and live on, not in the same way as before, but most likely in a new and improved way. This refers to the physicality of the world and also of our consciousness.
