To all of you who will be disappointed when we all wake up on the morning of December 22nd and are none the worse, I have something for you to think about. First, I wish we would all be taken by a huge alien mother ship to a safe place for say 300 years. This would give the human race time and a place to stay and avoid extinction. I believe after 300 years or so humans could start over and live on New Earth. It would be different here, slower, less bad stuff and more peaceful. A time that has not existed for thousands of years, and maybe this time we could learn from our past major mistakes.
We are headed toward a not so wonderful period of time here on Earth. And I hate to tell you there is no way to avoid it. For over 35 years, I have been a student of meteorology and climatology. When I was in college in 1970 majoring in Climatology, my mentoring professor made a bold statement to me about something that was coming, something he had found in ice coreings from the Arctic region of the world. He never spoke much more about it, but he looked extremely concerned and troubled.
So what is this surprise? It is something I had hoped would never ever happen. The permafrost is melting. Air temperature fluctuations on earth can tip this delicate threshold into a triggering event of instantaneous increase in global temperatures. It can turn into an unstoppable freight train of massive extinction within a reasonably short time frame.
Methane release, once it starts, puts the heating climate engine into high gear and there is no stopping it; man has no fix. This post is done- sleep tight—- there is always hope, until that lady sings .
