Killing the World
Pollution, Overpopulation, Global Warming and Unstoppable Climate Change?
As money and the rich win over governments and people wanting to save the planet are silenced by ridicule, name calling and other things, the perpetrators take everything. They are killing the world in their rush to be rich and then richer and we are all suffering. We are all on this ship together and when it sinks there will be no life-jackets, no other ships coming to our rescue and no future for our children, grandchildren or anything else that calls the world home.
The human population has swollen to an unsustainable number and unless we kill off ourselves there will be nothing left. The oceans are dying from over fishing; animals are being driven to extinction from loss of habitat and cities are sprawling out at the cost of everything else. Aside from these horrors the climate is warming beyond what even the insects can tolerate and the result is dead forests, horrendous drought, super fires and pollution on an unprecedented scale.
If anyone believes this is not happening then open your eyes and take a good look around you. This lens is designed to help you do that.

The Biggest Issue of the Century
Global warming and climate change are the biggest issues of the 21st Century. Ice melt; rising sea levels; displaced populations; disappearing islands; super floods; super fires; cyclones; tsunamis; earthquakes; carbon dioxide poisoning and nowhere else to go will surely see the extinction of humanity as well as most of the animal and plant species on earth. It is no joke - the facts are there for everyone with open eyes and a mind to take it in to see the consequences of our actions.
What are we leaving behind for our children? Will they survive? Are we murdering them before they even have a chance at survival? With super fires and disastrous conditions facing the world at large it is not hard to see the coming events as catastropic.
In my opinion humans are our own worst enemies. We devise laws and principles by which we attempt to conform ourselves and others into images that are frankly against nature. When someone comes along that is outside of our 'ilk' we choose murder and mayhem to try to resolve the problem.
If you disagree with that statement then look around at the issues associated with drugs, money, crime, wars and overpopulation.
This planet is our home and yet it is polluted to the hilt, stifled with carbon poisoning, struggling under the weight of over 7 billion people, denuded of its natural cover and the animals and plants that are required to sustain us are going extinct at an ever increasing rate. The temperature is rising and the fires are burning, cyclones and massive devastation of land is occurring, the ice sheets are melting and we are doomed unless something changes. Or is it already too late?
Burning Increases Global Warming
Where is Common Sense?
Every fire is a heater to the atmosphere. The things we use and depend on to maintain our lifestyles are the very things that are killing us.
We drive cars on tarred roads, we burn oil and gas heaters, we cool our houses in summer which burns more energy and we warm them in winter to our peril. Take a look at the gas flare associated with an oil rig. They all have them and there are hundreds of thousands of such flares burning 24/7 throughout the world.
The gas is simply burned off instead of being redirected to be used in any of the above facilities. That means that different wells are drilled just for gas and many of these also have flares. So what does that mean in terms of heating the environment.
In the Gulf of Mexico alone there are over 4000 oil rigs. There have been over a million oil and gas wells drilled in Texas alone since 1919 (Wiki answers.com). From the same source there are around 3.5 million oil wells globally (some not in use) but there are no figures for the number of gas wells in existence. Africa is littered with oil wells and in Nigeria the rivers are running oil instead of water. Companies involved are Shell, Total, Mobil and several others. The population is starving while oil moguls are taking everything and giving virtually nothing back.
How much heat does each flare generate? Well just look at the picture and do your own calculation.
But aside from the flare and its heating properties there is also a massive amount of carbon dioxide poisoning added to the air we breath. In Nigeria the people are suffering from the fallout with lung conditions they cannot escape. The acid rain is so bad that 5 year old corrugated iron can be torn in half like paper. That is what is soon coming to an area near you if you are not already suffering from it.
Do You Think Climate Change is Man Made?
There are so many schools of thought on this one that it frankly almost depends on whom you listen to. Most governments and Industry are adamant that global warming is not the fault of burning fossil fuels while environmentalists and most scientists say it is. What is your take?
Are governments interested in overturning fossil fuel burning or are they only interested in them making money?
Do you think industry profits are more important than preserving the planet?
For Every Action
There is an equal and opposite reaction
From my toddler years my heart still sinks when a tree is cut down. The effect on the environment hits me in the chest. Yet governments around the world are allowing logging of rain forests to continue. Much of the timber is turned into wood chips for the building trade, especially in Japan. What happens when there are no trees?
Trees make rain and today there is far less moisture falling from the sky as forests are removed and magnificent trees are chipped for industrial purposes or simply cut down and burned to make way for houses. Illegal logging of massive forests, such as those in the Amazon, is changing the ability of the earth to recover.
Where do you go on a hot day when you are caught outside? Most would rush to stand under the nearest tree. Why? Because that's the coolest spot and it shows that trees cool the earth and stop is from overheating. Without trees the ground becomes very hot, and in some cases too hot to walk on, when heatwaves strike. Hot ground takes a long time to cool down and it doesn't happen overnight. so this is another source of global warming. The more desertification there is the hotter the atmosphere becomes.
That's why devastating fires are plaguing every country with a huge cost in property and life. Cutting down more trees to increase wealth with or without the support of governments demonstrates how devastating man's thinking really is. Everything has to do with money which is man-made magic that robs everything of life and we are paying the price. Recent observation show many forest trees are dying without obvious cause except drought and climate change.
In Victoria, Australia, on February 7th 2009, almost 200 people lost their lives in the massive fires called 'Black Saturday'. Over 5000 homes were burned to the ground and entire villages and neighbourhoods were wiped out. Already there are dire warnings of an even worse summer to come.
Now Al-Qaida is broadcasting instructions to build incendiary devices to start such fires around the globe. This is the new form of terrorism and their goal is mass destruction. It doesn’t matter about anything else as they falsely believe they will live forever in Paradise. This is stupid thinking and one we have put up with for far too long. If there was a heaven up there somewhere we would have found it by now, unless it is strictly located in the imagination only.
Some Special Aussies
In the Face of Fire
Slow movers are doomed
In January 2005 Canberra, my hometown, was inundated with a massive fire that burned down over 400 homes in the suburbs. One went in my street and my own house was in peril. Our beautiful native animals and birds all perished and the sight of a female koala with burns over her body was almost too much to behold. She was called 'lucky' but, unfortunately, she has recently died.
Many fires are deliberately lit with arsonists choosing very windy days. So where does this thinking come from? Its murder when people in their path stand no chance. Its terrorism and the devastation goes beyond the present generation and well into the lives of our children, grandchildren and beyond.
While they are cute and cuddly the koalas cannot escape fire and with the massive blazes impacting on their habitats its hard to see how they can survive in the wild much longer. A recent report has indicated that Australia's bird life is also under threat with the famous kookaburra almost ready for the endangered species list. How can we do that to our glorious animals and the forests they depend on?
The main cause of fire is, however, drought and lightning which ignites the spasmodic bursts of growth that flourish and die placing more fuel in its path. Southeast Australia, as with parts of America, Europe and Africa are all prone to massive fires. Every one of them increases the atmospheric temperature. These same regions, once rain forests, were largely cleared along with the animals and plants they once protected. Those who clear the forests also burn off the remnants adding more heat to the atmosphere.
Aircraft, cars, ships and rockets play a huge role in the warming as well and unless we change our lifestyle we deserve what's coming. But that is not up to individuals as those who control the world also control the money and that appears to be more important than life itself.
The order has now been given with these dire warnings. Canberra, Australia's capital city, will be facing the worst summer ever along with the rest of this corner of the continent. We must vacate our houses as soon as a fire hits. There will be no chance of staying behind to protect it.
Is Animal Life on Planet Earth Doomed?
Every animal has its place in the environment. Some are essential for plant growth, others for keeping a natural balance in herds and populations of herbivores, while still others are quietly nestling in trees unable to escape fire or man. Even the insects play their part in seed distribution and forest regrowth.
Are we wiping out diversity of species through our activity?
Do you care about what happens to animals?
The Warnings Went Unheeded
Now it could be too late.
Twenty years ago scientists warned of global warming and they were literally silenced by ridicule and big business. Governments employed scientists to contradict those who were crying out and the status quo remained intact.
Those who were fighting for the environment were ridiculed, called names, arrested, imprisoned, and many were targeted as drug addicts, worthless unemployed, and hippies, among other things. So who would want to be rated among them? "Not I" said the firebug! "Nor I" said the multimillionaires who are ripping out the forests. "Definitely not me" said the CEO's of big corporations. And so the list went on. Now some of them are finally waking up but is it all too late?
Fast forward to 3 years ago and hurricane Katrina. This was preceded by hurricane Andrew and many others with devastating effects on several continents. Hundreds killed, homes destroyed and even towns wiped out, as with New Orleans. Recovery is hard and costly and recriminations long and tedious. But who is really to blame? Who picked up the bill? Why the taxpayer of course. The companies responsible for global warming are never considered at fault. yet they are killing the world and doing far more damage than the terrorists and all the wars combined.
Aside from this kind of loss there is also substantial changes in agricultural regions and crops are failing. The Australian Food Bowl, an area on the Murray River in Southern New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia is on its knees. The water is just not there. Owners are selling up and moving or hanging on to what might be useless land while working at jobs in nearby towns or getting handouts from governments to stay on the land.
Its all a sorry state of affairs.
Out of Control Populations
Why are there so many?
The world’s population is now over seven billion and increasing at an uncontrollable rate. Still people are having large families and religions and governments are supporting them. The result is massive strain on resources and cities are running out of placed to bury the dead. In the Philippines you get 5 years in a tomb, if you are lucky, and then you are out of the box, out of the grave and put into a sack for your family to dispose of or left as garbage. This is also coming to an area near you, if it isn't already.
Still religious dogma and misguided ignorance insists on over populations. Most religious leaders forbid family planning, the use of contraceptives and, of course, abortions. But what of the unwanted children born to mothers who simply cannot look after them and to fathers who take off when the going gets tough. While some live in cosy homes with all the advantages many live on the streets and many commit suicide or starve to death. It’s a lovely picture isn't it?
This family of 6 children is an example. Children born into large families usually end up having large families of their own. If each of these 6 children have 6 children then in one generation the 2 parents are responsible for 36 offspring. If they, in turn, have 6 each then the number rises to 216 in something like as little as 40 years. Where does the stupidity stop and common sense start asking the big question -WHY?
While infanticide is not an option family planning certainly is. Despite this most of the population are completely ignorant of it and many still do not comprehend the technology behind conception aside from the obvious act of procreation.
This was borne out in China which has opted for the one child family. The second child is killed if born and parents became obsessed with having male children. This allows foetuses to be aborted once the sex is established. But parents who want large families have migrated to western countries where they are paid, especially in Australia, to have ever more babies.
The big question is why?
Why have we got it so wrong?
The Australian government still forks out $5,000 per child born in this country. Many use this to grow their wealth and children are, consequently, abandoned, abused, murdered, by parents who simply don't want them. The poverty is increasing and the social divide has never been more obvious.
Children growing up under these circumstances have problems. They may seek attention or retribution and many hate the society that has abandoned and seek to get even. What better way than to go on a shooting rampage, light a fire, turn to drugs, become a criminal or, the newest form of childhood devastation, turn to alcohol.
Fast cars, fast music, tattoos, spikes all over the face, body, ears and elsewhere, ugly clothes, sex, celebrity, wealth and a non-caring attitude is the example our children are growing up with. Is it any wonder the world is in its present state?
Overfishing and the Consequences
Have We Gone Beyond Sustainable Population Growth
With the number of people dependent on limited resources and the massive exploitation of oceans and land it would appear that we have, but is your take?
Should we be encouraging multiple birth families?
Should we limit the number of children per family?
As the population grows the resources shrink. There is greater demands for less and less food, fresh water, land on which to live, building materials, energy, fuel, clothing, transport, education, medical, dental services and so on. So how long before civilisation as we know it collapses.
As that happens we wlill see more wars, more terrorism, more illegal migration. As country after country fails through overpopulation, rising sea levels, drought, lack of fresh water and as panic takes over we will see the world burning with unstoppable force.
As an archaeologist who researched the collapse of past civilizations I can state with certainty that the first thing that happened was a loss of trees, used to build cities and for fire. Next came the loss of water as rainfall declined and the countryside turned into desert. Arizona in the USA is a case in point. It once housed a massive population of indigenous people until the trees ran out and now it is all desert.
With the loss of water massive wars break out as one society fights another for the rights over the land. Water is the most valuable resource but we are allowing rivers to be poisoned while so-called valuable minerals, like gold, is dug out of the earth. We allow entire hillsides to be denuded of growth and then collapse when the rains do finally come. We don't care that supermarkets are full of junk food that is also poisoning us. We don't care that we are building plastic mountains that the earth cannot deal with and which is killing off huge numbers of animals that we depend on.
The more humans there are the worse this will become. Can we do anything to stop it? Yes - WAKE UP! Throw off the blindfolds and get real.
Deforestation and loss of trees might be having a devastating impact?
If you use paper then use that which does not cost us trees. Take a look at this company's product.
In almost every country the effect of the loss of forests is obvious. Land is turning to desert, agriculture is suffering, land slips and mud slides are wiping out entire populations from villages to towns, cyclones are increasing, and rain is failing along with the fresh water it provides.
Do you agree with this statement?
Do you think that deforestation is contributing to climate change?
Greed Versus Life
How foolish are we?
If there is anything true about man's behavior it is that the foolish things are the most precious to him. The most foolish of all is money and the wise are those without it.
Greed is the basis of power and religions, governments, and businesses. Those who seek power do so at the expense of life itself. In their minds it does not matter how much we fish out the oceans and how much we discard when it is not sold or consumed. As long as they make a profit. It does not matter how many forests are cut down and how people in the path of major landslides, floods and earthquakes survive or how many die, as long as they make a profit. It does not matter how dumb and stupid we make our children by allowing drugs, alcohol, fast cars, money and lust to pervade their world, as long as they make a profit. It does not matter how we destroy each other when something happens we do not agree with, as long as they make a profit. All that matters is money and this is protected in the name of jobs and progress, governments and religion.
Oh dear! How far we have come from the normal path of greatness. For millions of years the forests and oceans gave life in the form of animals and plants, They protected life through thick canopies and caves that sheltered life, provided warmth to mammals, gave food and medicines to those within the boundaries and protected the land for what it is, mother earth. Destroy it and you kill all life.
Because kings took our hearts and minds away, changed our world into make-believe in which they purported to be gods, along with other lies, we live with the consequences. They introduced so-called faith and dedication to their dreams through violence, wars and class systems and words like 'blasphemy', 'faith' and 'male gods' came into being. They required gold and jewels so they could look like the reflecting sun and we flounder in the mess of their doing, which was linked to power and control for them and their kind.
We have destroyed what we were dependent upon and now we are almost on our own to survive. But man is not God and nor can man create life. Nor is God a man because no man is a creator, organizer, manager or worthwhile dealer for all. Only Mother Earth can do that and she is struggling under the burden we have placed upon her. WAKE UP!
Make Believe Versus reality
Kings needed people to pay taxes, die on battle fields, and increase the size of their realms. They formulated religions to capture the 'spirit' of those who believed the lies and thought their king a god. This is borne out in every ancient civilization from the Chinese to the Egyptians, from the Persians to the Maya, from Europe to the Americas and everywhere in between.
Poverty and wealth are the main weapons of kingship. Those who dream of being rich are captured by notions that they will be rich beyond measure in the after-life. They hung their hopes on promises that their king, for whom they enslaved themselves and even died for, would be the ruler in a place called heaven. If they served him well and gave their lives in battle they would be rewarded with all they could dream of afterwards. This is recorded in codices (books) of the Maya, in Egyptian tombs and elsewhere.
Religious leaders, who knew of the danger of these works, sought to destroy them but they could not destroy the language and this is what I used to piece the past behavior and promises together. In every word we speak there is a record of the earliest concepts of religion and the lies it generated.
This is still the basis of religions today. People dream of the after-life and the rewards of this unfounded paradise that will give them everything they want. It's a ploy and we are killing the world because of the lies. Most people don't care if the world dies because they believe the devil is doing it and not themselves.
Recently I heard someone state that "humans walk through life backwards with their eyes in blindfolds" and I could not agree more. You expect your leaders to tell you the truth, but they don't. You expect your priest is in contact with God, but he isn't. You think that heaven is waiting for you if you suffer everything put before you in life, but it isn't.
There is no heaven or hell, no devil, angels or saints and certainly no paradise beyond the grave. If you want more evidence to this read my site about the hell people go through on earth to get to heaven and this one that gives irrefutable evidence on how people are deceived by kings. Books are available here as well.
With full memory of my reincarnation noted on this site the pain that such lies cause the human population is almost too much to bear. If people knew that they will come back to the mess they leave behind they might want to clean it up and they would certainly be changing their lifestyles.
You Can Make a Difference
Change your lifestyle and look to the future
Stop dependency on environment destroyers.
Forests have been removed so that houses can be built. These are the same homes in which we live. It stands to reason, therefore, that we should plant trees around them to replace those removed for the construction. Trees and shrubs also give oxygen to breath, absorb carbon dioxide and will add shade and protection from harsh weather. That will make heaters and air conditions almost unnecessary. Trees make rain so you will be helping to stop the drought that seems to be gripping a large part of the world by doing this simple act of contributing.
Next grow your own vegetables and enjoy the wonderful flavor and value of them. The land on which you dwell is great farmland. By growing your own fruit and vegetables you can have produce all year round. Make your own pickles, jams, preserves and so on. Six months after I picked them I still enjoy wonderful delicious apples from my trees, bottled peaches and tomatoes from the garden, I have my own dill cucumbers and beans, and jam that almost fills my cupboards to overflowing. With a garden you can pick as you require herbs, vegies, and fruit and you will help to prevent the devastation that makes agriculture so important that we are killing our world to let it happen.
Gardening is also great exercise eliminating the need for gyms and other artificial forms of activity. What are you waiting for? A recent figure revealed that 95% of once forested land is now used for agriculture. But that land has problems. Salt is rising into it, deserts are encroaching it, as in Northern China, and drought is making it difficult for farmers to survive.
