If you've ever wondered how the end of the world will be announced, today's front page of the Daily Mirror gives you a clue:-



For The Daily Star though, the real headline story is Girl Takes Shower In Bikini:-

^ That's such a sad clip, as most of us know how a broken plastic bucket is unwieldy and more rigid than you expect. Your clip also features the paternal erudite voice of David Attenborough himself. His documentaries, always lauded for their photography, were also demonstrations of the art of the voice-over. DA wrote and spoke them himself and they would always be clear and informative, explaining and linking together his sequence of ideas and images.

Nowadays, especially on Netflix, they too often opt for much cheaper methods of documentary: the fly-on-the-wall or the let-the-witness-tell-the-story methods, which dispense with the pre-written voice-over altogether. What this delivers is a bunch of disjointed extemporizations by frequently inarticulate people. For example, a while back I started watching a documentary about Lady Gaga as I thought it'd be interesting to learn about her life and development, etc. But without any preamble, the "documentary" starts with LG being filmed in her kitchen as she feeds her dogs and talks about nothing of interest at all. Uhhg!

Of all the depressing links that have been posted in this thread, this one is perhaps the worst so far. It calmly states what scientists are observing in Greenland: that every month vast quantities of ice are calving off glaciers of just melting away. It's a process which is out of control and quite possibly unstoppable already:- https://edition.cnn.com/2018/12/06/w...wxc/index.html

At least the dinosaurs, as they looked up at the darkening sky that followed on from the Chicxulub meteor strike - at least they could say to themselves, "Well, there's no way we could have prevented this." As humans, we won't have that grim consolation. We have either caused or made worse the planetary disaster that is global warming and our politicians are letting us down. They are not courageous enough to confront the true implications of the problem or make the unpopular decisions that could protect our futures.

At best, some struggle to implement the Paris Agreement, at worst, they are actively promoting policies that are accelerating the problem. Chief among the villains are the Chinese, with massive, unregulated industrial pollution, and America under the Republicans, who are determined to take retrograde steps for quick profit and don't care if their (or our) grandchildren pick up the tab.

This present dire situation has made me return to a clip I posted a while back:-

Lis - it’s not even just the news and the science. After the past two hurricane seasons as a person who lives near the coast in Florida, I can feel it. Heat, humidity, mold, hot water coming out of cold taps, mosquitoes - all around insane swampiness - you can literally feel the disaster in the air. I know people will think oh Florida has always been like that but I’m telling you no ****ing way - it has not always been like this.

Hurricane Michael actually picked up strength after hitting land. That’s how much wet heat was on the “land”. If you understand how hurricanes fuel themselves then you’ll know how ****ing insane that is. I am living in an area that will not survive. Even if mankind totally eliminated greenhouse emissions today this area is already ****ed. It’s not even like the good old days when Katrina hit (it passed over here too) when Mother Nature had to reload. These past two seasons she’s upgraded from a revolver to an AK and she’s not putting down her weapon. The hurricanes, the flooding, the ****ing mold and everything else it brings - it’s coming again and again - and we’re not stopping greenhouse emissions, we’re not even reducing, we’re cranking it the **** up! Even those of us directly in the line of fire are loading Mother Nature’s weapons for her. It’s game the **** over. We lost.

Do you think that HAARP and similar technologies and programs are purposely fucking up the world, or is it an unfortunate result of good intentions playing with forces that can't be controlled?

Neither.

Greenhouse emissions trap heat from the sun.

The heat causes depressions in the air pressure

The lower air pressure allows heat to tunnel upwards

The warm water in the ocean fuels the process and it becomes cyclical

The earth spinning on its axis creates the coriolis effect

This organization of wind and water in a cyclonic pattern is called a hurricane in my neck of the woods

It’s not caused by weather weaponization programs in Alaska like conspiratards believe

The real cause is perfectly understood

It's not a retarded conspiracy, it's a prime directive of the United States military.
