The ultimate end for earth is the same as for the universe....it will become cold....very cold....and very dark....the universe is expanding....the sun will eventually run out of fuel. In the meantime let's get rid of this stupid alcohol/gasoline mix. It's good for corn farmers....making fuel from food and not very efficient either but it is not good for prices....let's offer a choice....people who want to pay more for no good reason can do so and I can purchase 100% gasoline.
technology will not save us even if it existed and was economically viable. the planet is vastly too big to alter the trajectory its now on in any helpful timeframe. it takes hundreds of years, powerful technology, billions of people and 300 million years worth of fossil sunlight to change the climate this much. it would be like trying to stop a cannon ball with a feather. humans will try, but it will be ineffective, only cover up further warming, or simply create unforeseen (worse) problems.
Peter Wadhams says the same. If we don't
get the CO2 from the atmosphere, we're
finished. How can we wake up in the mornings
knowing this. Richard Dawkins replies:

I would love if you could get some pictures and somehow show us what is happening to your plants. It would be interesting to see if they look similar to what's going on in my neck of the woods. Not that I'm growing avocadoes in new England, but some of my fruit bearing trees and shrubs are looking like they are in "pain".
Speaking of flag wavers, a good counter heard recently: Patriotically correct : -)
Yeah they figured it out in deep bunkers . It's depopulation and eugenics
Ah, the el nino is a 67% chance. And a weak one at that. Just wait till we have the next strong el nino, maybe 6 years or so from now. It's going to be a hum dinger.
Not sure if everyone already saw this. Peter Wadhems on forests. https://youtu.be/jQ-YbHp4_JI
I've been worrying about my plants and have found some web sites that might be of help to you.

I hope you find some help for your avocado tree here.

The end of civilization pronouncements are probably accurate if not for the reasons given. Here's the ultimate wicked problem guaranteed to destroy civilization as we know it. Rising pacific sea waters destined to flood nuclear waste site on pacific islands. For those too young to know, the US Government attacked the Pacific paradise with nuclear bombs and then walked away from the mess. The US Government has not cleaned up the mess, supposing that it ever could be cleaned up to make it safe for humanity indefinitely. So
I'm working on an essay and video project that will be a growing exercise.

Pythagoras - "As soon as laws are necessary for men, they are no longer fit for freedom."
"As long as Man continues to be the ruthless destroyer of lower living beings, he will never know health or peace. For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love." - Pythagoras -

I decided to take a break from all the bad news yesterday and decided to watch some documentaries. The first that caught my attention was about the geologic history on the formation of the grand canyon. I was surprised to find out that geologists had not come to an agreement on how it was formed until the late 20th century. Apparently a giant lake larger than the great lakes had formed and eventually overflowed and that was the birth of the CO river which eroded the canyon fairly quickly ....geologically speaking. The next was abut the mysteries of easter island. The scientists actually made a replica of the giant heads and figured out how they moved them by rocking them and making them walk. The reason for the civilization's decline was still up to debate although the theories are very prescient with deforestation, resource depletion and wars as well as the introduction of the polynesian rat that stowed away on canoes all seemed to explain the mystery. Also there were no bays on the island to promote estuararies for fish the thrive so they were primarily farming communities and once the sea birds that were abundant and made the soil more fertile were also depleted they doomed themselves. Although they did try a last ditch effort to use a form of rock mulching to grow taro which still grow today (adds phosphorus from the volcanic stones and rtains moisture) looks like it was too little too late. We might learn much from studying past lost societies because they all seem to have followed the same path of deforestation, resource depletion, water loss, wall building and war....and so it goes Namaste
Kevin, someone posted a suggestion a couple of threads back about keeping track of your links and I'd like to echo it. Use WordPad or a word processor, create a file with a short description of each article, paste the URL of the article below each description, and when you get ready to read it click on the URL to bring up the webpage. That might help you keep track of all your sources.

Wheeler? The Drumpf voters are the biggest fools. Drain that swamp little Donald .
Imagine trying to upscale enough "technology" that would make a difference in under fifty years? Cost $ trillions every year; combined with a global brake on outputs? Forget it. Both would cause economic collapse. There's already 8 - 10C built-in.
Should of thought of something sooner.
Sadly, the only chance the "circle" you speak of has to grow is to get Citizens United overturned. Unless that happens, it will be business as usual for the foreseeable future in Washington.
Most all caps folks,most of the time , are suspect for lack of brain function Kev. Nice touch showing them to the kids table.


Coal stock


Coal is extracted from the ground by coal mining, either underground by shaft mining, or at ground level by open pit mining extraction.

Languages:

Coal is primarily used as a solid fuel to produce electricity and heat through combustion. World coal consumption was about 7.25 billion tonnes in 2010 The price of coal increased from around $30.00 per short ton in 2000 to around $150.00 per short ton as of September 2008. In early 2015, it was trading near $56/ton.
