U.N. scientists report world has barely ten years before climate disaster. Does this worry anyone besides me?

I do not worry but I care. Why worry about the inevitable. We are governed by Governments who live to be re-elected. We no longer have economies we have corporate investment funds. Our Politicians cannot act without considering the opinion of big business. Big Business buys votes and expects to be able to steer Government Policy.

That was how it will continue to be until ‘OMG’ Day. That is the day the collective business light bulb is switched on. On that day torrential rain will flood coal mines, it will flood roads from Petroleum Reserves, it will cut power to businesses and it will make millions homeless. They will not be able to work and will have no money.

Meanwhile on OMG Day in another part of the World a whole City will be burned to the ground by an out of control bush fire and a whole Island will disappear forever beneath a raging tsunami.

Unlikely – No. It will happen. Then and only then when it is too late will Governments and Corporate Business want to do something immediately positive about Climate Change.

Ask the whistle blowers which Governments are preparing for the widespread civil unrest of Climate Change?

Also ask them where the secret bunkers are that will house the chosen few whilst the rest of us have to endure a relentless extreme Climate.

Then there is the Trojan Horse of Climate Change. I have warned the U.S Government about it but of course who am I – nobody. Somewhere in the World right now are an anti-democracy group who will use Climate Change to dominant whole communities and countries. They also believe the World is over-populated so Climate Change and missing nuclear weapons are a positive for them. Time will tell if I am correct.

We can all agree man-made or not our Climate is becoming more extreme.

Can any human action ever cause an earthquake?

Yes it is possible and increasingly likely. Our Planet is a system. That means it exists in equilibrium with all the components of itself. If not then it becomes a state of exceeding ‘critical mass’ and is therefore it is not a system and only a set of totally ‘impossible to forecast’ sets of masses acting only in relation to the explosive forces produced and not in relation to each set of equilibrium(s). The state of critical mass is such that the direction of the energy release cannot be predicted by time.

A simple example being a car engine which overheats. The resulting increases in pressure whilst overall can be calculated are not able to be forecasted as individual forces of each component unless each separate mass is tested at each increase in temperature and pressure. Therefore, will it be the radiator that will fail, the cylinder head that will crack, the hose that will blow off etc.

The Planet as a system is constantly contracting and expanding within a set of forecast-able parameters. We know that as the centre of the Planet cools by allowing heat to escape through the surface of the Planet it has an effect on the layers of the Planets construction – in effect a composite lamination of materials – the strata et al.

There are times when the pressure created cannot be contained within the Earth’s physical environment and hence earthquakes and volcanoes.

The Planet’s ability to retain and release heat is being affected by the activities of man. Heat sinks are being torn down – the Amazon. The effect of cooling masses is being reduced – the increases in sea temperature. The pressure systems of Planet Earth’s environment are being made to interact in a way that effects the heat loss/retention or the Earth’s physical matter. The Planets’s cooling masses the Artic and Antarctica are also losing cooling area which changes the rate of heat loss and heat retention of the Earth’s physical matter.

Some will say its only 1 or 2 degrees the Earth can cope. I say the difference between a car overheating and not overheating is .00001 of a degree and the rate of that overheating is not forecastable.

Earthquakes, Tsunami’s and Volcanic interactivity will increase in intensity and frequency. Each set of events increasing the rate of reaction of the next until we are in a constant state of unpredictable climate change.

I have warned the USA of this ‘state of change’ being used by a hostile force to control key parts of the US and other Nations as a Trojan Horse theory – but they have their heads in the sand.

So in summary yes human activities will cause an Earthquake.

What are your 3 biggest personal problems?

This is my answer to this Q on Quora.

Malcolm Turnbull. This is because he does not seem to understand that the sun is the largest nuclear power station in the Universe and it likes Australia. That means we could have the largest solar power station in the World powering China.

Theresa May. Because May has never responded to my ‘New Perspective on Terrorism and ISIS’. This despite the fact my writing could stop one terrorist attack and by doing so save lives. Both Theresa May and MI5 are not able to write as I do. Click Here to Read

President Trump. Because he has not responded to my on-going on-line Strategy for the ‘Drug Crisis in America. Click Here to Read

They are personal problems as I do not understand why it is that Governments listen to the same solution’s and ignore new ideas with new solutions. Not just my new ideas but those of others too. If the World is to progress then the People must be heard.

What plausible new technologies would most increase the chances of world peace between now and 2050?

 

Also on Quora

It is not an easy question to answer as Climate Change is increasingly beginning to affect the decisions made about our future.

Example. Would you invest in a new fruit farm in California?

Would you build a high-rise on a low-lying coastal area?

Would you increase the Federal Budget for flood and bush-fire damage?

It does not matter if you agree that Climate Disasters are man-made or not you still have to plan for the increase in Climate Disasters.

Therefore, any technology has to take Climate Change into account.

I would say any technology that is related to Disaster Management and Control, any to do with water and food production and any technology that involves Civil Defense will all be in demand.

As for the subject ‘World Peace’, without technology advances in the areas I have just described I believe the possibility of World Peace to be increasingly remote without them.

Climate Disasters will increase in frequency and in magnitude causing vast movements of people – we are already seeing a yearly increase in movements of people affected by Climate Disasters. Countries will seek to manage their borders in order to ensure that food and water is available for their own citizens.

This could lead to an increase in regional Conflicts and perhaps even a constant state of ‘World Conflict’.

If we want World Peace we must be able to address the ‘conflict of interests’ that will occur with Climate Change and for that we will need technologies that will provide, food, water and shelter.
