* Lester Brown’s Without-the-BS Plan B 3.0. Study Guide:
11 Months Left to Stop Humanity’s Extermination.
*Chapter 1 - HomeEarth is Being Exterminated..
* Scientists are horrified by glacier melt acceleration.
* In 10 years the projected rise in sea levels went from 1.5 feet to 6 feet by century’s end, a massive 400% UNDERESTIMATE.
* Ice flow speed exceeds anything the scientists ever, in their wildest nightmares imagined.
* Asia’s primary glacier is melting faster than imaginable - could disappear in decades.
* Asia’s glaciers are their Agricultural Reservoir, as are glaciers and snow pack the world over.
* No glaciers and no snow pack equals no food, just misery, hunger, war, extinction and final extermination of humanity.
*Humanity's extermination is soon to be complete and Irreversible.
* Shrinking forests,
* Expanding deserts,
* Falling water tables,
* Collapsing fisheries,
* Disappearing species,
* Rising temperatures,
* Greenland Ice Sheet melt will raise seas 23 feet,
* West Antarctic Ice Sheet melt will raise seas an additional 19 feet.
*A 33 foot Sea level rise will create - .
* 600 million environmental refugees - twice the US population.
*There's no time left - Will You Stand Unviolently to Save HomeEarth?
* Will Greenland melting become irreversible?
* Or will you phase out coal power plants fast enough?
*Many Points of No Return are Upon You.
* Water is running out world wide,
* Will you stabilize population?
* Or watch death and wars over water?
* The Demographic trap is spreading -
* Poverty begets population growth and,
* Population growth begets poverty,
* Countries collapse under these unresolved problems creating Failing States.
* Up to 50 are underway at this time.
*Individual Countries are Already Dying.
* Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Chad, Congo, Haiti…
* The List grows Every year,
* HomeEarth will fail, humanity will be exterminated globally after how many states fail?
*INSANE AFFLOHOLISM ENABLED BY MASSIVE MARKET SABOTAGE IS DESTROYING Us.
* World bank Economist Nicholas Stern Study,
* MARKET FAILS TO INCORPORATE FOSSIL FUEL ECONOMIC COSTS
* TO THE TUNE OF TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS,
* WE AFFLOHOLICS AND CARBON ENERGY CORPS SEND 90% OF TODAY’S ENERGY PRICE / WRECKAGE TO OUR CHILDREN FOR FUTURE PAYMENT.
* INSANE OVER-POPULATION OVERCONSUMPTION CLUSTER-BOMB EXPLODING FOR 100 YEARS NOW,
IMPOVERISHING OUR CHILDREN.
* Global enterprise has exploded 20 fold this last century,
* While population has exploded 4 fold,
* Now we way exceed the ability of earth to replenish resources. We've been living off of our children's share of the resources, for decades.
*Coal Destroys 400% for every Benefit.
* Burying these Costs is Suicide,
* Our energy decisions are Criminally Insane in this System,
* HomeEarth Extermination will be complete lest YOU stop it, now. CHARGE THE TRUE FULL COSTS – STARTING NOW.
* STOP SENDING THE BILL TO OUR CHILDREN.
* STOP PAYING THE BILL OF THE COAL AND OIL ADDICTS, PIGS, GLUTTONS.
* STOP FALLING FOR THEIR CHEAP PLOY OF CALLING THE TRUE COSTS A TAX.
* STOP BEING CRIMINALLY STUPID.
*MARKET SCREWS YOU WITH INDIRECT COSTS - EXTERNALITIES.
* Places Zero Value on natures contribution,
* Destruction of the environment AT NO CHARGE, NO PENALTY,
* PASSES 80% OF TODAY’S costs to Future generations, STARTING WITH YOU.
*The US Market Sabotage, Scam, Perversion is Extreme.
* Gas price in 2007 $3 per gallon,
* ONLY SHOWS PRODUCTION PRICE,
* 80% THE PUMP PRICE LIES ABOUT THE FULL PRICE HIDING
* THE 80% TRUE PRICE THAT INCLUDES,
* Environmental destruction,
* Military costs,
* Health costs,
* Blood of our soldiers,
* Global / Middle East animosity to US,
* 80% - $12 PER GALLON FUTURE COST IS SENT RIGHT TO YOUR CHILDREN!!!
* BUT THE MARKET SAYS IT IS CHEEP!!!!
* STOP BEING STUPID.
*YOU MUST END THE SABOTAGE OF THE FREE MARKET. REPAIR THE MARKET INTEGRITY.
* YOU MUST STAND AND WIN SO THAT WE INCORPORATE THE FULL COST TO SOCIETY.
*CHINA'S AN EXAMPLE OF CRASH DUE TO MASSIVE MARKET FAILURE, SCAM, DISTORTION, INSANITY.
* TOO LATE THEY SAW THE $30 BILLION VALUE FROM TREES - INVISIBLE - UNTIL DESTROYED.
* In 1998, in
* China’s Yangtze River Valley,
* 400 million people’s home,
* 1998 saw the Worst flooding in history - $30 billion cost,
* Cost exceeded the total value of the rice harvest,
* CHINA THEN BANNED LOGGING THERE,
* TOO LATE THEY SAW THAT TREES STANDING ARE WORTH 3 TIMES TREES CUT, FOR FLOOD CONTROL SERVICES.
* THE MARKET WAS OFF BY FACTOR OF 300%!!!!!!!!!
* ICONIC REMINDER OF CRIMINAL MARKET SABOTAGE - ENRON - WAS THE MOST BELOVED, ENORMOUSLY POWERFUL COMPANY.
* 7TH MOST VALUABLE COMPANY IN THE US In 2001,
* THEN… INDEPENDENT AUDITORS…
* THE COMPANY HAD LEFT COSTS OFF THE BOOKS, FATALLY DECEIVING ITSELF, AND ALL STAKE-HOLDERS.
* ENRON WAS WORTHLESS,
* $90 STOCKS WENT TO PENNEY'S PER SHARE,
* COLLAPSE WAS COMPLETE,
* ENRON NO LONGER EXISTS. And will Humanity?
* WE’RE INSANELY TOLERATING THE SAME SABOTAGE AS ENRON STAKE-HOLDERS DID, GLOBALLY - LEAVING COSTS OFF THE BOOKS.
* BY HIDING THE COSTS EXTERMINATING EARTH - WE’RE HEADED TOWARD THE EXTERMINATION OF HUMANITY.
* We need ARMIES OF CITIZEN UNVIOLENT WARRIORS, NOW!!!! Or we're dead. Unstoppable Environmental Armageddon.
*THE MARKET HAS BEEN VICIOUSLY BLINDED TO EXTERNALITIES.
* INSANELY TREATS MASSIVE SUBSIDIES TO OIL COMPANIES AS IF THEY ARE DESERVED.
* EARLIER LOCAL CIVILIZATIONS ALSO WERE EXTERMINATED - OR BARELY AVOIDED THIS FATE.
* EXAMPLES OF ENVIRONMENTALLY INDUCED ECONOMIC COLLAPSE,
* Iceland 600 yrs ago averted collapse by restricting herd size to sustainable levels,
* Samaria BC destroyed itself by destroying its cropland,
* The Mayan civilization destroyed itself by destroying its environment - trees, causing erosion, killing food supply.
*Our Western Affloholism has caused Insane Levels of Human Growth, Environmental Rape and Plunder this last Century…
* GDP now measured in Trillions was in Billions only decades ago,
* 2007 GDP Growth Exceeded ALL of the 1900 economy,
* earth's natural capacities, such as its ability to supply fresh water, forest products, and seafood, have not increased, and has been viciously, insanely crippled.
* The Economy's Exponential Growth ECLIPSES now the environmental capacity to support it.
* In 1980 30 years ago for God's sake, WE SURPASSED EARTHS REGENERATIVE CAPACITY!
* WE’RE NOW SURPASSING SUSTAINABLE YIELDS BY 25%, all on the backs of our
* children. How can you sit by while we do this to them. Are you crazy? Insane? Drunk? Affloholic? Stand up,
* like our forefathers did. Now.
* WE ARE MEETING DEMANDS BY RAPING and PLUNDERING OUR CHILDREN’S RESOURCES.
* They'll never ever be able to recover, unless you turn the 2012 election into, not some meaningless exercise of who the next captain of the titanic is, but a decision to unviolently commandeer the Titanic away from the coal and gas companies, and our own criminal affloholism, and make it this generation's moon-shot moment to fully implement Plan B 5.0 and, failure is not an option, totally launch as a nation toward reducing coal and oil's carbon 80% by 2020, centrally by terminating immediately the insane crippling and blinding of the free-market - eliminating the insanity of attaching no value to our HomeEarths invaluable resources by placing the price for destroying them at the well-head, at the mine, at the pump, and on the electricity bill. Distribute the revenues from this 100%, equally, to every U.S. household to use as they wish - to pay for their share of earth's destruction, or to pay for their responsible move to non-destructive forms of energy, and to pay for earth's repair and regeneration from a century of rape and plunder as fully detailed in Plan B 5.0.
*EXTERMINATION OF HOMEEARTH MEANS EXTERMINATION OF HUMANITY - CREATION’S FUTURE.
* GOING, GOING, GONE forever soon is,
* Climate hospitable for agriculture,
* Hydrological processes for water,
* Geological processes producing soil,
* Forests that are Earth's Lungs, its Irrigation Water Pump, it's massive Carbon Reservoirs.
* Soon gone are its Grasslands, that are its Soil Manufacturing, livestock Feed, Fuel for the poor.
* And soon gone forever are its underground Water Mines, any safety valve on scarce rain.
*HOMEEARTH PROVIDES ALL FOOD, ALL AIR, ALL WATER, ALL MATERIALS….
* It's all been free. And you are destroying it by allowing the unopposed rape and plunder by coal companies, oil, companies and generally by your own uncontrolled affloholism.
*HOMEEARTH PROVIDES ALL LIFE-GIVING SERVICES…
* Water purification,
* Carbon sequestration,
* Flood control,
* Soil conservation.
*15 of 24 major ecosystems have already been severely raped and plundered all but to death.
* A 40 year Study of Global Eco Systems by
* 1,360 scientists, found three fourths of Fisheries collapsing. That, was the good news.
*THE LUNGS OF THE PLANET - ARE ABOUT TO BE INCINERATED.
* The Rainforests have been 20% incinerated so far, for Cattle for US restaurants and Soybean Farming for US feed-lots.
* They are another 22% degraded by road building and forestry,
* Desert will replace the forest, forever, if the rain forests burn,
* Roughly 100 to 200 BILLION TONS OF CARBON WILL BE ADDED TO THE ATMOSPHERE.
* CARBON STAYS UP THERE FOR UP TO 800 YEARS.
* YOU MUST BE PROUD TO GIVE SUCH A GIFT TO YOUR CHILDREN, AND YOUR GRAND CHILDREN, AND YOUR GREAT GRAND CHILDREN, AND. AND. AND.
* By the way, guess where our midwest irrigation water comes from? Yup, the Amazon Rainforest has pumped it up to us, up until now. Your children will be violated by your insane affloholism, forever, unless you stand, now.
*Western Affloholic Rape and Plunder’s Collapsing HomeEarth’s -
* Water supplies.
*HomeEarth collapse already creates refugees,
* 125 million and counting
in western China alone, largely thanks to your affloholic binge on coal and oil this last
*China proves - EXISTING MARKET SABOTAGE IS THE FINAL EXTERMINATION OF HUMANITY.
* China has 4 times the population of the US, and
* China already consumes more resources than the US as a nation.
* However, however, however, the Chinese citizen consumes just 10% on a per person basis as
* we gluttonous westerners who, though just 5% of the world's population hoard, plunder, extort and steal 25 too 50% of its resources.
* As a nation China already consumes More Grain, meat, steel.
* 1/3 more grain,
* Double the US in meat consumption,
* 3 times the US steel use, already.
* But remember, individual Chinese consume just 10% as much as you do personally. And they are responsible for near zero of the carbon in the atmosphere. You US citizens are responsible for that these last 100 years, with great help from the UK and Germany. Not the Chinese. You break it, you own it, you must pay for it. You are a Christian, a Christ-like nation, isn't that right?
* WHEN In 2030 CHINA CATCHES UP TO U.S. GDP PER PERSON - EXTERMINATION OF HUMANITY WILL BE ASSURED.
* GLOBAL FORESTS WILL BE TOTALLY GONE - China will need 2 times as much paper as produced worldwide today.
* China will need 1.1 BILLION CARS, more than doubling the 860 million the entire world has today.
* China will then need roads and parking lots equal to all of their agricultural land area of today.
* China will need 98 million barrels of oil per day - MORE THAN THE 90 MILLION BARRELS PRODUCED TODAY - THE EXPECTED PEAK FOR THE WORLD, FOREVER.
*REPEAT - THE PREVAILING ECONOMIC SCAM IS EXTERMINATION OF CREATION.
* The Fossil Fuel Based,
* Auto centric,
* Throw away economy.
* IF IT WON’T WORK FOR CHINA IT WON’T WORK FOR INDIA,
* India may soon have a bigger population than China.
* This Scam Crippled Sabotage of a True, Free, Market Economy won’t work for 3 billion in developing countries reaching toward middle class.
*PLAN B, 5.0 - ERADICATE AFFLOHOLIC MARKET SABOTAGE, REPAIR, BUILD ANEW our HomeEarth.
* Plan B calls for the war-time speed replacement of this Humanity Exterminating economy to a Humanity Growing economy based on,
* Renewable energy,
* Diversified transportation,
* Reuse and recycling of everything, uh, everything. Everything.
* WE HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY,
* DO WE HAVE THE WILL? Do our children have parents that know how to stand up for them?
* Or do they just have criminally affloholic shells of parents, and guardians. Addicts. Gluttons. Sub-humanoids?
*Our Insane, Western Affloholic Market Sabotage Collapses Governments worldwide.
* Remember, it is your US carbon that is up there. The poorer countries haven't had the time or resources.
* More and more, thanks to our hoarding and destroying the world's resources, their governments,
* They can’t provide food, they
* can’t provide security, or
* Education, or
* Health care.
* As this happens they lose credibility,
* Lose revenues,
* Societies fragment,
* Wars ensue,
* Nations come to fear warring states,
* Become hotbeds for terrorism and drugs.
*Collapsed Governments threaten All Humanity.
* Lacking healthcare, they
* Become sources of global disease,
* Non-state governments emerge,
* Warlords emerge, Clans - hotbeds for terrorism and destruction of normal cooperation and function between nations.
* There are an estimated 30-47 failing Countries today.
*Government Collapse Collapses HomeEarth Further.
* Accelerates deforestation,
* Soil erosion,
* Shrinkage of cropland and water per person.
*HomeEarth Collapse Collapses Life-support - 1st the Poor.
* Donors avoid failing states for security reasons,
* State failure spills over into the region dragging it down,
* Rwanda, Sudan for example…
*Collapsed Governments Destroys Global Survival Mechanisms,
* Such as Controlling spread of infectious diseases,
* Maintaining raw material flows,
* Disrupts local economic progress.
*YOU, STAND NOW, OR NEVER - FINAL UNVIOLENT BATTLES WILL DECIDE IT ALL NOW. YOUR CHILDREN ARE DOOMED, BY DEFAULT.
* You have until 2020 to get the renewable energy installed, or carbon does your children in.
* Shrinking species populations beyond recovery, extincting 50% of all species by mid century. Their oceans will be completely dead. Wars for food will rack the planet, forever. Barbarism, etc., etc., etc.
*First we are seeing Extermination of the Weakest - then all of Humanity.
* Single issues or simultaneous multiple threats can suffice.
* Initially, the economically advanced can handle it, but not the underdeveloped. For example,
* Advanced countries have controlled AIDS, but
* Not the underdeveloped countries,
* 20% or more adults in some countries are infected.
* Among the weakest countries they have unsupportable population growth,
* especially in the Mideast and Africa.
* 78 million new people per year are being added, and
* Growth is concentrated in countries least able to support them.
*Extermination of All Humanity Follows. We are not learning!
* Falling water tables,
* We expected - policy would stabilize aquifers,
* NOT ONE COUNTRY HAS YET DONE SO.
* Cutting carbon is obviously necessary,
* but NOT ONE COUNTRY HAS DONE IT YET,
* WILL THIS BE OUR DEMISE JUST AS SALT KILLED SAMARIA?
* Decline in oil production,
* Only 2 countries are planning for it!!!
*With Food Destroyed, Humanity is Destroyed.
* Analyze the effects of mounting stresses on global systems,
* Food Security is most crucial and revealing.
*Adequate Food Supply is all but Destroyed Now.
* Just look,
* Falling water tables,
* Converting crop land to other uses,
* Extreme climate events,
* Heat waves,
* WORLD GRAIN PRODUCTION FALLING SHORT OF NEED IN 80% OF THE YEARS NOW,
* 2005-2007 GRAIN PRICES TRIPLED,
* SURPLUS GRAIN SUPPLIES NOW PLUMMETING.
*With Humanity being Exterminated - S.U.V.’s Eat, and Babies Starve.
* UP TO 30% OF RECENT CROPS Go TO FUEL,
* DRIVING WORLD GRAIN PRICES TO UNPRECEDENTED HIGHS,
* UNPRECEDENTED FOOD INSECURITY,
* STATES FAILING.
*Extermination of Governments is Fast.
* ONE ENVIRONMENTAL FAILURE CAN END CIVILIZATION, AND
* NOW WE HAVE MULTIPLE.
* NOW STATES ARE SO INTERCONNECTED THAT ALL WILL RISE OF FAIL TOGETHER.
*Plan B. 5.0 revision - What will Succeed - Politics be Damned?
* Plan B. 5.0 revision - What will Succeed - Politics be Damned?
* Requires attacking on multiple fronts,
* a. Ending poverty,
* b. Stabilizing population,
* c. Restoring earths natural systems,
* d. Cutting carbon 80% by 2020,
* e. Efficiency,
* f. Renewable sources.
* g. Ending deforestation.
* Scale and speed for restructuring the world economy - must be wartime speed,
* Restructuring of the world economy commensurate with WWII economy restructuring,
* Cars were banned for 3 years. We knew how to move heaven and earth to stand for our children's future. Do we still have the ability?
*We Have Everything but the Insanely Humane citizen warriors, so far.
* We have the EXISTING TECHNOLOGY,
* EVERYTHING NEEDED HAS BEEN DONE SOMEWHERE,
* An Advanced Wind Tower can equal the energy of an oil well,
* Japanese refrigerators use 12% the power of those a decade ago,
* Today’s hybrid cars - 50 miles per gallon - 50% more efficient. Effective $1 per Gallon cost of wind energy fuel.
*Battles have been Won against Affloholic Insanity.
* Denmark now gets 20% of energy from wind and is headed to 60%.
* 60 million Europeans now get electricity from wind.
* 40 million Chinese are getting their hot water from rooftop heaters.
* In Iceland, 90% of homes are geothermal heated.
* India is now using dairy based on crop residue yielding a 400% milk production rise, making India the world’s biggest milk producer.
* China now leads the world in fish farming - using advanced carp - the first country with farm fish exceeding natural - with harvest
* now exceeding one third of the world’s oceanic fish catch.
*Battles have been Won Against the Extermination of Humanity,
* …demonstrating that it can be done, if we'll stand for our children, now.
* South Korea - Reforested to 60% from near zero,
* US - in 20 years reduced soil erosion in vulnerable areas 40%,
* US farmers increased crop yields 20% in 20 years,
* Curitiba, Brazil since 1974 - Population tripled while traffic 30% reduction,
* Amsterdam - advanced urban transport - 30% by bikes,
* Paris transportation diversification headed toward 40% reduction in traffic,
* London uses taxes for traffic reduction.
*The Technology’s There to be Waged by Humanity.
* Plug-in Hybrids plus Wind Farms -DRIVING ON WIND - at ‘$1 a gallon.’
* Etc., etc., etc.
*The Irreversible Extermination of Humanity is now at Hand, and will happen, unless you stand for your children, now.
* Plan B - NEXT 5 CHAPTERS - THE ENVIRONMENTAL, DEMOGRAPHIC AND ECONOMIC CHALLENGES,
* THEN 7 CHAPTERS - ROADMAP OF WHERE WE NEED TO Go AND HOW TO GET THERE,
* WORLD’S IN TROUBLE BECAUSE OF WHAT WE’VE PUT IN MOTION.
*The Outlook for Humanity is Extermination – However…
*We can do it. For example, Compact Fluorescents could Defeat 25% of Killer Coal Plants.
*Humanity Has an Extreme Chance at Rebirth if we Halt the Extermination - Now, completed by 2020.
* We could breathe clean air,
* Cities could be less noisy, polluted, congested, more civilized,
* Expanding again can be the forests,
* Falling carbon emission forever more, is entirely achievable.
* But not if you let November 2012 go by without the final, failure is not an option, decision to do give your children other than planet Hell-on-Earth.
