Beyond FAIL-SAFE is a 1964 movie in which an American nuclear attack has been launched on Moscow, “but it’s a mistake due to an electrical malfunction” and the FAIL-SAFE system to call it off has failed and one B-52 continues on to its destiny. The system failed.
Now the Earth is on the verge of catastrophe, and soon. It”s the ultimate end game. But we have no FAIL-SAFE. No way to press a button and stop the attack. The only way we can stop the present damage from becoming a global disaster is for our leaders to join in an all out effort to stop it now. But our leaders, in coordination with corporate business, the World Trade Organization (WTO), have decided to continue their goal of “growing the world economy”. Fighting the rise of greenhouse gases globally will be done without a total commitment. That means without a serious plan. Therefore, it is destined to fail.
Those who know the future of our planet warned us as to what would happen if we did not listen to the warnings over the last 50 years and continued to have babies. That warning was that in a finite world with finite resources, we can not keep producing billions of more people. Otherwise, planet Earth will be ripped of its resources and our home will be polluted beyond repair. As a result, we are heading for our destiny with 9.4 billion people by 2050. And by that time, horrors of biblical proportions will be exacting its punishment on all life forms and the environment. Then the “herd” will understand what the word culling means.
The latest study by a scientist predicted that a developing part of the world could soon pass the United States with the use of air-conditioning, causing a huge jump in dirty coal to fuel power plants to produce electricity and keep billions more people cool as the planet gets hotter with climate change. A circular suicide. More air-conditioning, causing more coal to run power plants, which causes global temperatures to rise-which causes citizens to use more air-conditioners.
Michael Sivak and Virginia Letschert in American Scientist (2013) show how countries such as China and India are growing in their purchase of air-conditioning units. The bad news is that these two countries use a lot of coal for their power plans, releasing huge amounts of greenhouse gases.

Consider the Indian city of Mumbai. Sivak has “estimated that in metropolitan Mumbai alone, the large population and hot climate combine to create a potential energy potential demand for cooling that is about a quarter of the current demand of the United States.” That one city in India has the potential to use 25 percent of the electricity produced by the United States. Just one city.
The point here is that China and India use a lot of dirty coal, much of which comes from American coal mines that will make the future of climate change an even greater disaster for our planet. The hole grows deeper.
COAL IS GROWING GLOBALLY -LED BY CHINA AND INDIA:
Jonathan Thompson, Yale, explains,
“…coal companies- particular those that mine the vast reserves in the Powder River Basin in Wyoming and Montana – are looking for a new place to peddle their wares. That would be China. “China right now is having blackouts because they don’t have enough coal to fuel their electricity facilities.” According to Gregory Boyce, CEO of Peabody, the world’s biggest coal company, “they continue to import more and more coal and they continue to look for coal resources across the globe. So we don’t see any signs of that slowing down.”
Bob Greenlee Boulder Daily Camera,
“Our domestic coal industry is changing rapidly as are other traditional industries. But that coal that some believe is being ‘saved’ from polluting our air are completely misinformed. Coal exports from the United States to India, China, and other nations have doubled from 60 million tons per year to over 120 million. China and India are building four new coal powered plants each week. Even Germany will open six new coal power stations this year. Coal is still an essential resource for producing electricity and anyone who believes foreign nations have greater environmental controls or better pollution regulations than the United States either ignore reality or are hopelessly in denial.”
THE PROBLEM WITH VEHICLES:
The growing population with the ability to purchase automobiles means that a large increase in the ownership of vehicles will result in another boost in the greenhouse gases globally. Predictions by auto companies run from between one and two billion more vehicles before 2050, most of them partly or fully run on fuel from oil. Much of that oil will come from the dirty tar sands in Canada and other areas of the continent. And that will add more pollution to the mix. In China some traffic jams on multi-lane highways last for months. Venders along the highway supplies these jams with food and water, etc. Take a look at the pollutants so thick in places that you can feel it bouncing off your face. China’s problem will soon be the world’s problem.

THE OCEAN UNDER ATTACK:
“The statistics are grim: 3/4 of the world’s fish stocks are being harvested faster than they can reproduce. Eighty percent are already fully exploited or in decline. Ninety percent of all large predatory fish- including tuna, sharks, swordfish, cod and halibut – are gone. Scientists predict that if current trends continue, world fisheries could collapse entirely by 2050.” Save Our Seas Foundation
“Current CO2 levels are so high that even if emissions were drastically cut tomorrow, some more acidification would still occur. But drastic cuts tomorrow are unlikely; a doubling of CO2 levels in the atmosphere is possible within the next 50 years, which, if it happens, could bring about extinction events of a magnitude the Earth hasn’t seen for 65 million years (when the dinosaurs died off). Even the most optimistic estimates of future CO2 concentrations could mean the end of coral reefs.” PHOTO: Coral reefs globally would be destroyed by climate change and the loss of protein meat for a billion people.

Vast quantities of solid and chemical waste from human activities are continually dumped and leach into the oceans, including plastics, sewage, oil and toxins that accumulate in food webs. See threats on link above.

ANTARCTIC, GREENLAND ICE MELT:
Scientists and climate deniars continue to debate over climate change, even though the weather continues to change, with events happening as predicted with the temperature, the weather, massive deluges of rain and cold fronts diving to the Gulf in the summer time, back to back blizzards around the South in springtime, many temperature records broken.
The big potential problem now is that “Ice in Antarctica and Greenland is disappearing faster and may drive sea levels higher than predicted this century, according to leaked United Nations documents. PHOTO: If Greenland melts, no city will survive. Click on image of Greenland twice.
“Greenland’s ice added six times more to sea levels in the decade through 2011 than in the prior 10 years, according to a draft of the UN’s most comprehensive study on climate change. Antarctica had a fivefold increase, and the UN is raising its forecast for how much the two ice sheets will add to Earth’s oceans by 2100.
“The changes in the planet’s coldest areas are a ‘very good indicator’ of a warming planet, according to Walt Meier, a research scientist with the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.” Read the article. If all the ice on Greenland and Antarctica melted, the sea level would raise by 66 meters. That’s 216 feet. That won’t happen but a disastrous melting of both sites could destroy thousands of cities around the world.
With 9.4 billion people on Earth by 2050, the demands for water for drinking, cooking and, most of all, agriculture, will not be there. “The International Water Management Institute predicts that by 2050, more than two billion people will face severe water scarcity, and a further five billion moderate shortages.”
Land (and water) for growing crops and animals will not be there and can not meet the demands by 2050. Long before that date, the water and food crisis will be a critical problem for the world. This “global emergency” will affect everyone on Earth,
Writer Greg Ansley in The New Zealand Herald on the experts:
“The main drivers of the looming crisis include population growth that will reach 9.2 billion by 2050 (most in the poorer nations), rising demand for protein foods such as meat, milk, fish and eggs, and a global food requirement by 2050 that will be up to double today’s, outstripping growth in food output.” All of those restaurants that sell meat dishes ( MacDonald’s, Fat Boys, etc.) will be out of business.
“Leading water scientists have issued one of the sternest warnings yet about global food supplies, saying that the world’s population may have to switch almost completely to a vegetarian diet over the next 40 years to avoid catastrophic shortages.
“Humans derive about 20% of their protein from animal-based products, but this may need to drop to just 5% to feed the extra 2 billion people expected to be alive by 2050, according to research by some of the world’s leading water scientists.”
Meat protein will be scarce and expensive, if you can find it. Animals use too much water to grow and the water won’t be there. If climate change continues to be a growing problem, vegetables will also become expensive and hard to find. That means the United States could quickly become a problem with up to 200 million more people, many settling in the western U.S. and bringing with them a well-advertised hatred of current American citizens.
PHOTO: California and other western states is where you will see a brutal battle for a barren wasteland. In this high school, a bloody battle is underway between Mexicans and Black American students. In some schools the combatants are between Mexicans and White American students.
This continent will become a battleground between Mexicans and Americans, with Muslims thrown in as they stake out a portion of America. The western part of our nation will become uninhabitable and ungovernable. (My prediction.)
Think. The whole continent will consist of hard-pressed people trying to provide food, water and shelter for themselves and their families. Your chances will be beyond slim, especially if you are without a firearm. People will stake out areas by race and religion and defend it. Homeland Security and USNORTHCOM will not be able to maintain order.
NOTE: My predictions are based on reliable documents, history, plus the overwhelming evidence that is playing out before our eyes with climate change. History has already spoken and our future has been set. What role each of us will play in this tragedy remains.
