At any moment of time in history there is an equal amount of evidence we are all cursed or we are all blessed. For every problem you cited there's plenty of technology that can address the causes and reverse the damaging effects. It really all comes down to political will. There are solutions:

1. Energy:

2. Vertical farming:

3. Poverty and employment

4. Machines for cleaning carbon out of the atmosphere
c. Trees with desalination from energy technologies listed above

5. Self making 3D-printers

Self-sustaining highly engineered moon base living systems on Earth are just around the corner. These same living systems will then be put on the moon. Who would not want to live and work on the moon? I think the future is fantastically great and exciting.

Now if we can just figure out a way to get the military industrial complex under control we can get on with improving the lives of everyone on the planet! You know, meaningful work for change at descent wages!!!

1) There is nothing man can do to destroy the planet, even nuclear waste will get subducted into the mantle over time.

2) Go cry to China

3) After crying make them clean up after themselves then come talk to the rest of the developed world who are doing far more than China.

4) Next give India the same treatment

5) Move on to Russia and get back to us with your progress

I don’t know if this has been said -
Yes I agree that we are an invasive species, it’s entirely possible we can change our ways.

However the narrow minded perspective of “what is” instead of “what could be” when it comes to power production, sure you’re right with fossil fuels, however completely ignoring the break through a of Fusion power systems, solar and renewable power systems, electric and hydrogen based engines (which may include jets, cars and motorcycles who knows).

Yes we are a bunch of barstools, but who knows what will happen in the future?

You know why it seems that way?

Because oil is dying. Yup, TPTB cannot do anything to stop it. Coal already is dead. Natural gas will continue to be used. But oil is going away as a power source. Good riddance I say.

What, oh, what will take its place?

Instead of looking at the f#ed up world, stop, and think. Really think. Solar and wind have there place. But what happens when the wind is calm or a cloudy day? There is where the major hint resides. Energy storage.

"Sucking air and scrubbing out CO2 is too costly" they say. Sure if you are using oil based tech. "Cleaning up the trash is too costly," they say. I agree. All the diesel and manpower sure. What if there is a source of power that does not need or rely on oil?

Why did Toyota just announce that it will offer no less than 10 models of all electric cars? Why are delivery trucks and semis going electric? What if there is a source of energy that is constantly in operation, emits zero emissions, and nearly limitless because it runs off the most abundant gas in the universe??

After your pity party is over, take a look around. What is going on?

Nuclear fusion has been not only been figured out but is a done deal.

Remember when Lockheed Martin made their announcement? That was not, "Hey check out what we are going to try and make", announcement. It was, "We need partners and we are doing this."

It was also a warning shot to all the other industries that they have about 5 years to adapt.

Once running, you are not going to shut the thing off. That is where energy storage comes in. I have said that the last leg of the stool would be power distribution.

Any word on a high temperature superconductor? Even better, a room temperature one?

All the excess energy from nuclear fusion solves most of your "we're all doomed" problems. All of the "it costs too much" arguments can be tossed. The only thing would be to stop saying it can't be done to actually doing it!

Did you see the National Magnetic Lab made a 32T magnet and then said,

"We've opened up an enormous new realm," Weijers said. "I don't know what that limit is, but it's beyond 100 tesla. The required materials exist. It's just technology and dollars that are between us and 100 tesla." - National MagLab's latest magnet snags world record, marks new era of scientific discovery

At 100 Tesla, nuclear fusion is dead simple. That is what we are seeing, it is not a death but a birth!

Ye of little faith!

"Our task was to change the 1D structure in order to increase the temperature of superconductive transition" comments Anatoly Zatsepin, the head of a scientific research laboratory at Institute of Physics and Technology, UrFU. "It turned out that if you pile SWCNTs [single walled carbon nanotubes] up, Cooper pairs stabilize, and a superconductor is formed." Still, even such piles require quite low temperatures to exhibit superconductive properties - only 15 degrees above absolute zero.

Physicists found a solution for this issue as well. They added a one atom wide carbon "wire" inside SWCNTs. The chain itself does not form bonds with the atoms of the tube, but it makes the tube change its own geometry and flex.

When the team from UrFU changed the shape of the internal carbon chain from straight to zigzag-like, they managed to increase the temperature of superconductivity transition by 45 degrees. To achieve the best effect, the angles of zigzags were mathematically calculated, and the predictions proved to be correct., Dec. 18, 2017 - Russian physicists found the temperature at which carbon nanotubes become superconductors.

That was just carbon atoms in CNTs. They have yet to try other atoms and molecules.

They calculate when CNT turn superconductive. They can figure out what substances can be placed inside the SWCNT, how that changes the CNT shape and become a high temperature superconductor. Maybe even a substance at room temperature.

Hope this makes you feel less doom pornish because this is a major step!

I don't disagree with much of what you wrote, but I never want to have a few pints with you. You'd have me suicidal before it was all said and done, and that just isn't fun drinking!

6. Vertical farming:
The global Vertical farmingmarket is anticipated to reach USD 9.9 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The increased use of Internet of Things (IoT) sensors, for producing crops, is likely to spur the market demand over the forecast period. The information obtained from the sensors is stored on the cloud and analyzed to perform the required actions. The growing automation in agriculture and increasing use of big data & predictive analytics, for maximizing yields, are also likely to drive the market.

> Probably the best thing that could happen for mother earth is for mankind to die out, harsh I know but it could save the planet.

There's a completely different view on this. The Earth has reached the end of a phase of development that hosted human evolution at what is called Fourth Degree - basically Animal Man. If successful, this would have resulted in the appearance of Fifth Degree humanity: Social Man. The present phase of evolution, in the main, has failed, and the Earth is moving to the next stage of its own development which does not support the existence of 4dV humans, but will support those few who have transitioned to 5dV.

So there's no point in trying to "save the Earth" because it doesn't NEED saving. It's just moving along while the deluded mass of failed humanity on its surface play out their final dramas and dream up all sorts of fictional scenarios to explain their various predicaments.

is this actually a serious thread? If so its kind of crazy. Somebody has been taking too many meds.

what exactly do you want life to be?

I am guessing that this thread is some sort of humor or satire.

The magnetic field is due to flip and is clearly on an increasingly fast track to do so.

Carrington even overdue

Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites X‐ray flux data, it is shown that the expected 150 year return level is approximately an X60 flare while a Carrington‐like flare is a one in a 100 year event. In the worst case the 150 year return level is an X90 flare while a Carrington flare is a one in 30 year event. It is also shown that the EVT results are consistent with flare data from the Kepler space telescope mission.

Asteroids like this one ready to smack us
2010 WC9

Asteroid 2010 WC9 will safely pass at about half’s the moon’s distance on Tuesday, May 15, 2018. Estimates of its size range from 197 to 427 feet (60-130 meters), making the May 15 pass one of the closest approaches ever observed of an asteroid of this size.

The creator of it all will care for this planet and his people, in the end, it will all be fixed good as new. We were supposed to be caretakers here not destroy.

Revelation 11:18
18The nations were enraged, and Your wrath has come. The time has come to judge the dead, and to reward Your servants, the prophets and saints, and those who fear Your name, both small and great,and to destroy those who destroy the earth.”

Unfortunately, I suspect things will end much differently than your OP predicts. Some dumb ass religious zealot group will get their hands on a dirty bomb or worse, detonate it in a major city of some major power which will, in turn, use the detonation to start pushing buttons in retaliation. Once all the cars are gone, fossil fuel supply should be good though!

The elite will try to keep the populace in fear because fear is their key to obedience. This thread is an example of their work. And the damage it really does to the psyche of a population.

When one finally realises that all forms of media is sensationalism and misinformation to promote obedience then one can free themselves from slavery.

A free society would ask questions :

* Why is 66.3% of the discretionary federal budget spent on defence when infrastructure of the entire country is collapsing ($4.5 trillion needed)?

* Why do 800 military bases exist in 70 countries and territories when 1/2 million homeless cannot find a bed in their own country?

* What is Central Intelligence Agency involvement in drug trafficking?

* Why is paedophilia rampant in higher levels of government. Has it been used to blackmail public servants to be obedient to an elite?

* Why does the country burrow money into existence from the Fed that is primarily owned by European banks. And pay interest on that money?

* Why does the Government refuse an independent audit of fort knox.

If greed and corruption can be removed from the economic system. Clean energy and other ideals will be easily affordable.

absolutely. I get asked all the time why I spend time, effort, and techniques to become more aware. I just tell them the truth will set you free. The shell shock early on after learning hidden truths is just a detox period. Once it goes away its extremely liberating and a sense of calm an inner peace develops.

... I was not fond of the detox period (nicely described). It took me some time to realise that I needed a hiatus from all sources of information to allow my brain time to achieve a new equilibrium.

We haven't come anywhere near exhausting the natural resources of this planet. We have come dangerously close to the end of fossil fuels, but that is only one resource. There are numerous others we have yet to tap in to. Our mistake is waiting too long to put a suitable replacement in place when the fossil fuels run out. Nuclear power is a reasonable solution provided we are allowed to build the proper type of plant. If the Hanoi Janes of the world get their way we will never get anywhere. When we can build breeders without fear of retribution not only can we create an endless supply of power but we can also decrease the amount of nuclear waste we are forced to store. Breeders run on the spent fuel rods from other power plants. You only have to prime them once with new fuel to get them started, then just keep feeding them spent fuel rods from other plants to keep them running. And they are safer too. Use a liquid moderator like Deuterium oxide, D2O, and if there is a scram all you have to do is dump the moderator. Fission will end. It is not possible for it to continue to melt down in the absence of a moderator. With no moderator there are no thermal neutrons. No thermal neutrons means no fissionable mass once the existing fuel is spent. The end.

More dangerous than fossil fuel and nuclear power is water. We don't live in an energy economy. We live in a water economy. You can go online and in real time get the temp, dew point, wind direction, relative humidity, precipitation, and pollen count of just about anywhere on earth. But there is no where to go to find out what is in the water coming out of your tap. Sure, the local filtration system is working, but that is only meant to filter out biological waste. It does nothing for prescription drugs, viruses, radiation, and host of other potential contaminants. We take the drugs. The drugs exit us into the water supply. The fish drink the water. We eat the fish. Drug interactions anyone? Fish with measurable morphine from pain killers in their flesh. Not to mention blood pressure meds, anti-depressants, and anything else you can imagine. Our water filtration systems are not built to solve these problems. Not even close.

Water will rule this world in the very near future. Many countries are already forced to use recycled waste water as drinking water. They are the canary in the mine shaft for a dozen other countries all considering the same solution like Australia, oh, and the US. Thats right. Recycled sewage water coming to a water tap near you. Enjoy. :-)

absolutely! I still have to take break periodically for maintenance. Just clear the mind. The truth uncovered can really nerve you up. Fear, confusion, and a general feeling of being ticked off that you have been duped for so long.

The food thing really gets on my nerves...... OK, so basically everything is poisonous now.... great! I actually give warning now to people going down rabbit holes because IMO a lot of people just cant handle it. I give truth seekers a lot of credit even if I disagree because its pretty fearless to shatter your own bliss in exchange for lifting the curtain on true evil. The sad part is when it turns people somewhat crazy and the loose a little grasp on the good things life has to offer.

I find that long runs in the dark help me. Thats actually what I am doing here now... pulling an all nighter until I go running around 4am.

Yes agree, many cannot handle it. Many years back I was discussing the same topic with a person on youtube. He said it was a waste of time confronting people with the raw truth. Their brains would go into self protection mode and put up a brick wall that was impenetrable. He suggested its far more effective to drop seeds (isn't it strange that ....) and let them grow in their own time. It might take weeks, months or even years before they sprout. I didn't agree with him back then but his seed grew and here I am.

Studies show that men's sperm counts are down worldwide so whatever they putting in our food and water has the strange effect of reducing the earths population. Funny that!

You sound a well grounded person.
