Sandy – Force of Nature

31 10 2012

Winged Figure by Abbott Handerson Thayer – USA 1849-1921

Hurricane Sandy is the force of nature we had to have. Unfortunately. All the suffering in this freakish storm is of course tragic. Yet we may be assured that there is, without a doubt, worse and more to come. This must be a deeply sobering reflection. As we watch the great city of New York being battered, flooded and besieged it may start to dawn on some of the climate change deniers and laggards that change is now inevitable. It is now dawning on increasing numbers of people that the price of doing nothing will be greater than the price of change. Recent opinion polls suggest that the issue of climate change and global warming was becoming a bit of a bore for many in the UK, Australia and the USA. Now there will be a shift in public opinion and therefor renewed political will for change.

In Chaos Theory AKA The Butterfly Effect the butterfly flapping its wings is said to be the initial (small) condition that will lead to a (much larger) change – the hurricane. Well now we can see the hurricane as the butterfly. One large storm is a relatively small event when taken in context with the enormity of changes that this will precipitate. There are too many words required to describe all the problems we now face. Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere is simply the tipping point of our accumulated transgressions against the great spirit. Mankind it seems is learning some harsh lessons on the way to achieving the consciousness and frequency of loving harmony with the cosmos. As people sense the escalating catastrophe(s) that selfishness, greed, corruption and apathy have brought to our door many will feel that the situation must change while others – perhaps out of fear, shame or grief  will feel that it is hopeless.

Here is the simplest fact of the matter. The catastrophic change state will lead to a re-balancing.  For those who need to nurture their souls at this time, and who are wondering how to begin to change, the solution is profoundly within each individual. There are four basic steps to change. 1) Recognize your own faults. 2) Acknowledge that they are yours. 3) forgive yourself and others. 4) Start to nurture and hold a vision of how you would prefer your life and the future of the world to be. Sounds simple, and it can be. It is the blessed journey of a lifetime. By all means . . .make change and transformation a creative celebration of who you are going to be in the new dawn of time; in the re-birth of yourself. The rainbow of promise that the wholeness holds eternally is for all of the travelers in the creation.  For no matter how far you may wander from home, the candle is always burning in the window of miracles and grace. Laugh if you want to. This is not a religion. It may be far from it. And there is no romance in this and all the romance that any of us can handle.

If you want some science with that you can duck on over to 350 or BUST to see what’s up with climate change and CO2. Here’s to Peace and Love and feeding ducks by hand.

Climate Change-Caused Destruction and What You Can Do

8 08 2012

Global warming-caused destruction

Oh Lord Jesus it’s a FIRE!

A report in the Sydney Morning Herald today points to the harsh realities that we must face in this century of climate change. Here Comes The Sun: Chilling Verdict on a climate going to extremes  SMH 7th August 2012.  This story is entirely congruent with the news just in last week that a climate change sceptic in the USA has now become a true believer. And this guy was no ordinary sceptic. Point of fact he is scientist Richard Muller and he lead “a vast international research effort to debunk global warming science”

So would it be fair to say that if you ever had any doubts then the alarm bells should be going off loud and strong right about now? Lord Jesus it’s a FIRE! 

But now, it should come as no surprise that Australia’s climate change sceptics are remaining unconvinced – the actual word used in the SMH story is defiant. DEFIANT! It does boggle the mind somewhat to take this on board. But we must send these folks love. Truly so  . . . Go ahead and send them Love & Light for the highest good. If you believe in that sort of thing.

What’s interesting about this is that the people who practice such metaphysical feats of transcendence generally know very clearly the power of it. Does this mean we don’t have to do anything in practical terms? Surely not!  The word Synergy means a system where the WHOLE is greater than the SUM OF ITS PARTS. In other words, metaphysical focus such as prayer or using affirmations or programming for miracles on their own. . .are not as effective as BOTH focused action and the metaphysical process and focus – regardless of your brand of religion or lack thereof.

In Dickens’ Oliver Twist when Gamfield the chimney sweep wants to take Oliver as an apprentice, the magistrate refuses. Gamfield has already stated that when a boy gets stuck up a chimney he light a fire under them to roast their feet. This he explains gets them moving. It is a grim joke which has a parallel in our situation today. We are stuck up a chimney and the Chimney sweep has lit a fire under us. Our feet are roasting. Time to get a wriggle on.

There is a Disconnect . . .The New it Phrase

6 04 2012

There is a Disconnect Between Perception, Media, Science, Climate Change, Politics and How The World Really Works

We ain't seen no flyin saucers round here!

When I was a boy, in the 1960s you never heard this phrase. There is a disconnect between . . .and then, whatever the speaker is attempting to draw attention to. For example: There is a disconnect between the price Supermarkets want to charge us for fruit and vegetables and how much they pay the producers. For according to all reports in Australia we are being royally rogered at the checkout. Oh sorry, according to all reports except those issuing from the offices of Coles and Woolworths. That’s a disconnect. Another good example. There is a disconnect between Australian foreign policy in relation to Uncle Sam and our own self interest. According to Malcolm Fraser. He thinks we kiss Uncle Sam’s but so much that it’s actually become an embarrasment to Uncle Sam. According to Malcolm Fraser . . .and he would know wouldn’t he? Being an ex Prime Minister from the conservative side of politics. Wonder of wonders. I am reminded that the word Apocalypse means disclosure.

Then there is the recent usual disconnected miasma of conventional stupidity around the fact of visitors from other places. Other than Earth that is. Consider the great Gerard Henderson pontificating as usual from his throne at the Sydney Morning Herald. First the title of the piece: Media’s soft treatment of Brown opens door to the little Greens men. Well Gerard here’s you chance to establish warm relations with Australia’s richest person and new part owner of the publication you work for – Gina Reinhardt – but who would doubt you two are already close.

And here is Gerard’s opening salvo: Imagine the media reaction if the atheist Julia Gillard or the Christian Tony Abbott raised the possibility, in a major address, of extraterrestrial life on one or more planets beyond Earth. At the very least, they would have been ridiculed. There may even have been calls for a retirement on medical grounds. – SMH 3rd April 2012

So what you are actually saying Gerard is that you would reinforce the official reality creation around the existence of UFOs. Visitors from other planets, galaxies etc in order to denigrate one of the few politicians in this country prepared to stand up and tell the truth on a regular basis. Well done Gerard, no doubt Gina is very proud of you and your shining homework. One small problem.

There is a disconnect between the official view on the existence of UFO’s, visitors from other planets  and what actually happens. Take the film Men in Black which makes light of this. This film leverages the fact that there are so many “aliens” visitors, beings form other planets – call them what you will – here on Earth now, that’s it’s become embarrasing for Unlce Sam to have to keep denying their presence. It’s a joke. But like some kind of oriental political ritual the truth is not what’s important. It’s knowing how to keep going with the lie. Basically just keep telling the same outrageous lie with a straight face. It’s the official Fuck You of the Asian political handbook. We are whaling for scientific research. For example. Not to denigrate the Asians out of hand. The Occident surely has plenty of the same to claim.

Putting it all together what we have is this. Uncle Sam has been running the official line on UFOs because if we could all see them running around, or if it was admitted finally . . . they are here, people might start to question the fuel source their craft are running on. And you can bet it’s not BP unleaded or Mobil Super. Yes Uncle Sam is over fighting a war in Iraq and Afghanistan courtesy of George W Bush, scion of a Texas family with CIA and good old boy oil money connections. Join the dots. Uncle Sam wants to have to explain the fuel that UFOs use about as much as they want to change over to decimal currency. Hey . . .it’s the right thing to do, but darned inconvenient. We’ll just keep on doin things the way we always did around here. And while you there can you get that feller . . .what’s ees name. Gerald Henderson on the line. I got a noo idea for a story for eem. And then call Gina.

Coal Mining and The Most Beautiful Molecule

28 03 2012

Carbon C60 A Beautiful Molecule?

Go Con-Figure

The most beautiful molecule is said to be carbon C60 and variants, known collectively as Fullerenes. The C60 story is both a wonderful treasure trove of delights and by turns unspectacular fizzers. It is all part of our current mysterious and marvelous history. In 1996, for the discovery of the structure of C60 (see picture above) the Royal Swedish Academy awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry to Kurl, Kroto and Smalley. Fact: In the 1990s there were more chemistry papers written about Carbon C60 than any other Chemistry subject by a factor of approximately 9 to 1. The extraordinary discovery of C60 (Bucky Balls & Fullerenes) heralded the warm glow of great hope . . . in many hearts, for scientific breakthroughs rarely see such wonder. Up until now it seems that the most significant outcome from C60 is Carbon nanotubes . . .all very well but it’s not exactly what was initially euphorically envisioned. A whole new industry will one day flourish based on the unlocked secrets of C60 for the production of super strength light-weight materials and the pricincipal raw material will be, without a doubt . . . COAL! And so today C60 is still virtually sitting on the shelf. It is a veritable sword in the stone. Perhaps we need a Lady of The Lake for Modern times and Fullerenes. Who can unlock this great secret? Well . . .if miracles take a little longer that we might at first imagine the wisdom says be realistic and demand the impossible.Go Con-Figure

On the flip side of the C60 story is, entirely appropriately, one of history’s most fascinating counter-points. Namely that the people of the world are now threatened with multiple calamities due to the burning of fossil fuels. If you can follow the story here . . .one of the principal forms of fossil fuels that we burn is coal – a product made up mainly of carbon.Yes . . .yes. . . yes. It’s a case of – you can laugh or you can cry.Go Con-Figure

Now it just so happens that Australia is the world’s leading producer of coal. And in pursuit of this black treasure, assorted billionaires and various governments are happy to oversee the mining of coal, with courts, guns and prisons at the ready should should any be foolish enough to try to stop them. Never mind the destruction to the environment, sensitive eco-systems, endangered species, trampling on the rights of farmers, tourism, Aboriginal sacred sights and God knows what. If you happen to be in the way of the black coal juggernaut then look out.  In Australia we are taking out of the ground around 500Million Tonnes of coal annually (we couldn’t verify the exact figure because the Australian Coal Association do not appear to publish this most basic fact on their PR heavy web site). More than half of which is exported to China, Japan, India and numerous other countries. One way or another it gets burned resulting in huge quantities of Carbon Dioxide being expelled into the atmosphere.  According to a recent calculation if we made a column of coal 1 metre by 10 metres out of the coal we dig up every year in Australia . . .it would reach to the moon. Freaky stuff.And people wonder how our burning of fossil fuels could influence climate. Unbelievable. Let’s do our best to wake those people up. It must now be understood that any who organize against the simple fact that burning fossil fuels is causing climate change are in truth now guilty of crimes against humanity. One day they may be so charged. We can only imagine that history will judge these pilferers of the common good and security not at all well. We must wish such deformed wrongdoers and all who conspire with them the very best of luck, because it is highly likely that they will need it. Go Con-Figure

The truly extraordinary facts

Truly Extraordinary Fact No’1: Clean and safe clean energy technologies called Zero-Point energy devices (among other things) have been routinely shut down and hidden from the public for the past 100 or so years. This started with Tesla and continues to the present day.

Truly Extraordinary Fact No’2: The carbon contained in the coal we are burning – principally to fire coal power plants – could be used in materials using compositions based on Fullerenes to make super strength light-weight products for all kinds of structural, engineering and building materials.

The solutions are just beyond our fingertips. Does the video below really show us how to build a free energy device.? Go con-Figure

Your Energy Future and Climate Change – Complain More!

28 05 2011

It's in Your Hands

The Get Up! Campaign inspired my donation the past week with this sadly funny and entertaining video re climate change(click here to view) and the greed surrounding the polluter lobby. I say sadly-funny because it really gets to the heart of the unbelievably selfish and unbelievably dumb arguments that are being used to deny the reality of human caused climate change.

If my dollar has a chance of actually getting to where it’s going to do the good I don’t mind donating to a worthy cause. And so if Get Up! are prepared to put my dontation/their funds into campaigns designed to put pressure on politicians to actually stand up to the evil coal lobby then they have my vote. Black as coal. What can ya do? Complain more.Speaking of which this just in from Get Up! yesterday (May 27th) . . .

Spread The Word (National Day of Climate Action)

June 5 is going to be a turning point for our movement. It’s crucial that we get as many people to come along as possible – can you help make sure your suburb is covered in posters so that as many people hear about the action as possible?

You can either download a copy of the poster to print out on your home computer below, or you can sign up on the right to pick up materials from a central location in the CBD.

In case you missed it, here are the details of the Brisbane Rally:

Where: Riverstage, Botanic Gardens Path, Brisbane
When: 1pm Sunday June 5

You can also share the details of the action with your friends and family below.

click here for Day of Climate Action – Rally

Ha! You gotta love the internet. On that same page you can download your posters and even sign up to help. Our friends in the paranoid conspiracy tribes will no doubt have Get Up! pegged as a front for the Aliens and the New World Order (so-called). Look . . .whatever dudes. Personally I am glad that someone is actully doing something about the greatest threat to the viability of our species since Noah and the Flood. Dr Quantum encourages all civil-minded souls and people of goodwill to join in the protests.

Indeed . . .there’s not enough complaining in my opinion. By and large, people go quietly about their business in Australia with little to indicate a ruffled feather. We may have been busy importing American culture into this country, but don’t be fooled. When it comes to the art of complaining we are as English as the English – perhaps even more so. Complaining is seen as impolite. Don’t rock the boat chaps – is what they are saying.

Now, Dr Quantum is as New Age as the next rainbow fairy when it comes to quantumizing the powers of manifestation. Focus on what you want – not on what you don’t want. And yes it’s true. Every now and then however, it’s balanced (shall we say?) to actually let it all hang out. So start complaining. It’s almost guaranteed to make you feel a whole lot better. Certainly in the first instance. Complaining is not just therapeutic . . .it’s now essential. Dr Quantum is going to get a T-Shirt with the message Complain More! emblazoned across the front and maybe even the back. Note I am not talking about whingeing. What’s the difference? I hear you ask. Well . . .I am so glad you asked. Here’s the on-line dictionary definitions of Complain and Whinge resepctively

Complian: intr.v. com·plained, com·plain·ing, com·plains 1. To express feelings of pain, dissatisfaction, or resentment. 2. To make a formal accusation or bring a formal charge.

Whinge: vb whinges, whingeing, whinged (intr)1. to cry in a fretful way
See the difference? I am not recommending that people should cry in a fretful way. Oh no! But i do suggest we need to do a whole lot more complaining about things.

See you at the rally. And go on. . . Join Get Up! online. Get their newsletters. Respond with an email saying you will go to the rally. Sling em ten bucks. You’re mad if you don’t.

I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore

Back after 65 Million Years! Mass Extinction – Time for CODE GREEN

12 03 2011
The Dodo Bird – gone forever

George W Bush declared Code Red. You can be the judge of how well that has worked. Time to go Code Green. According to scientists at University of California Berkely we are heading right into the perfect storm of another mass extinction event where we lose 75% of our species. (SMH online March 3) The last event occured 65 Million years ago and was triggered by a massive asteroid slamming into Earth. Now it’s our turn to have the distinction of causing extinction being responsible for the majority of destruction of species now taking place on Earth.

You may have to say farewell to honey bees, Redwood Trees and Blue Spotted Warblers and hello to more cockroaches, mosquitoes and rats. 

In fact there is a natural rate of extinction of species that is part of the evolutionary arc. This natural rate of extinction is around 1 species per week. According to the United Nations Environment Program which involes massive long term field reporting by scientists world wide the rate of extinction of species in the early 1990’s was around 1 per hour. This number has now accelerated to probably around 3 per hour. So you can see that, despite Gerard Henderson, Piers Ackerman, Tony Abbott and the rest of the Climate Change denial industry banging on about how climate change is not caused by people, it is definitely  people, yes people who are causing the greatest mass extinction of species to hit the planet for 65 million years. I am holding my breath waiting for Gerard Henderson to explain the current extinction event in terms of non-human factors. And y’know it’s fascinating . . . I am sure these nit wits can distort even these facts if they try hard enough. But I digress. Peace love and understanding. Breathe . . . breathe. . .breathe.

The process of extinction of species occurs in a number of ways. The first and foremost of these is over-development. Humans build towns, and destroy forest and grasslands to build more villages to accommodate burgeoning polulations. In the industrially developed world this encroachment of villages is accompanied by the kind of infrastructre that we seem to love so much. Freeways, shopping malls, housing developments, industrial factories, intensive farming (another kind of factory), large scale theme parks, golf courses, resorts etc, etc, etc.

The second kind of extinction is produced by over consumption of those very life forms. Over fishing, over harvesting (yuk) of trees, and poaching and hunting of endangered species for so-called bush meat – which in most cases is really just the final blow to the processes already begun by overdevelopment.

The third cause of extinction is destertification. Habitats that are just wiped out by the spread, the emergence of desert. This in turn is caused by a variety of factors such as errosion of soils and now . . .global warming. And the hotter it gets, the more species become threatened and extinct.

Some of the most endangered species are; The Green Sea Turlte (below), the Alabama Cave Fish, The Mountain Gorilla, Southern Bluefin Tuna, Northern Bluefin Tuna, Peurta Rican Parrot, The Red Wolf, The Phillipine Eagle, Iberian Lynx, Amur Leopard. The list could go on for the rest of this blog post, suffice to say this represents just the tip of a very big ice berg. We are sailing it would seem, full steam ahead. Hands up if you know the name of the ship we’re on.


If we look at the pattern of extinction we can see a couple of things. First of all extinctions occur in pinpoint locations and in tightly localised areas. Makes sense. We drive development  in a new area complete with housing estates, malls, freeways etc and delicately balanced flora and fauna are promptly snuffed out. On a global level this is akin to punching holes and tearing the fabric of the ecological web – our very life support system on the planet. The answer is of course the Titanic.

So the first thing you can say is that the ways in which we have been doing development these past couple of hundred years has been extremely wasteful and careless. This pattern of development to fuel the economies of profit, greed and just plain old ordinary garden variety growth has been likened to burning masterpiece paintings in winter to keep oursleves warm. The Rembrandts burn really well – let’s throw on a few more of those. But what about solutions? A worthy new Meme has come to my attention just recently, and now I am telling everyone I meet: Code Green. Here’s the thing.

Three-time Pullitzer Prize-winning author of the International best seller The World is Flat – Thomas L Friedman has a book out wherein he proposes we institute Code Green. And Dr Quantum likes it very much. You can get a copy of book by subscribing to this blog – see below. Now I have to state right now for the record – I am not waiting for politicians, religious leaders, captains of industry and other official keepers of the keys to the doors of perception to openly declare Official Code Green status for the planet and humanity. Because if I wait for them it will surely be too late. I can see it now . . .the water from artic ice melt has just caused a 10 foot rise in sea level and we just just had our hottest day on record in Sydney of 62 degrees C. Lots of people died. A motley handful of politicians and religious leaders propped up by Dick Smith’s nephew all get together on the evening news to exhort the people to go CODE GREEN. Hmmm. . .what is wrong with this picture?  

The key, i would suggest the BIG key to going Code Green and being a bit sort of . . . .Oh I am going to stick my neck out here and say . . .avante garde, gosh . . .the BIG key is to do it NOW. Do it yourself. Don’t wait for the mutha fuckers. JUST GO CODE GREEN. Do it now, do it now, do it now. And what pray tell do you do when you go Code Green? Well, huh! Y’know it’s kinda up to every one of us. And I am putting my hat in the ring with the following list of suggestions.

1) YOUR SUPERANNUATION: ASAP direct your SUPER fund to put your money ALL YOUR MONEY – into ethical investment portfolios. If they don’t have an Ethical investment option switch your fund. Have a punt into alternative energy. I mean how did your super do in the GFC? Get into Green businesses. Stuff that will be showing a return as the planet starts to melt and the ocenas rise a bit more. Be ahead of the curve. Vote with your wallet. The impending carbon tax was meant to achieve this and politicians have been doing a woeful job on your behalf. Don’t wait. Make a note in your diary. Do it now.

2) YOUR VOTE: Yes I know how attached you are to those two main parties. Are you really? I mean ya gotta ask yourself. How good a job are they doing? Answer: not very. Vote GREEN. Help shift the balance towards the Greens MORE. Join the bloody party. Hand out pamphlets on street corners. Start now.

3) YOUR DEEP ECOLOGY WORKSHOP. What is that? I hear you ask. Devote a day of your life to doing the Dream Change Symposium

. There’s a link on the blogroll on the home page of Dr Quantum’s Blog. They are independent. Non-profit. all facilitators are volunteers. It costs all of $20 – yes twenty BUCKS to do a Dream Change Symposium. Some programs cost less than $20 and some are even FREE. Seek them out. Ask me for more info. Do it now.

4) Subscribe to this BLOG and by responding to the email you will in turn receive your free copy of Thomas L Friedman’s book Hot, Flat & Crowded. It’s the best book I have read EVER. (that’s this month’s EVER alright!) All I ask is that you send me five or ten bucks to cover the postage – depending on where you live. YOUU WILL GET A BRAND new PAPAERBACK COPY. Of course numbers are limited! – I don’t own a BOOK warehouSe. HURRY . . .DO IT NOW!!!!!

5) Come up with your own short list of things to go CODE GREEN and send them in via the blog – use the comments at the end of each BLOG section – and I will publish them right here . . . sit down and start writing. You will be amazed once you get activated what kinds of brilliant and amazing ideas you get. Even one idea could change things greatly. If people want to find support for this purpose I am happy to provide a forum, coaching and free chocolate sprinkles for a CODE GREEN party, group, discussion, network or any other form of proactive project, action or quantum results agenda. Happy to help you with your mission in any way possilbe. JUST DO IT NOW

Earthquakes Floods Fires Tsunamis Volcanoes Disease Revolution – This is the End my Friend

5 03 2011

Let’s get really crazy and let’s get wierd. You see what’s interesting is that, in case you hadn’t noticed, there have been an enormous number of significant disaster events going off around the world recently. Oh you had noticed! Well OK then. They may seem unconnected, but let’s play a game of Quantum imaginings for a moment . . .

A few weeks ago Australian Greens leader – Senator Bob Brown dared to suggest that the 2011 Queensland floods and coal mining are somehow connected. Gerard Henderson (Sydney Morning Herald Jan 18 2011) and the usual phallic phalanx of media toads expressed righteous indignation. Perhaps not surprisingly even Martin Ferguson the Federal Govenment’s Resources Minister and right wing faction heavy, jumped in to defend the mining companies. These randy old dinosaurs fresh from raping a forest full of trees will have a crack at anything.

Bring up the wild bongo music. Here is none other than Piers Ackerman drunk on voodoo juice in trance-lockstep with his tribe around the campfire. Wooo woo woo. How is that the more right wing they get the more they seem to enjoy a good old fashioned ritualistic stomp around the circle in their leopard skins? Ah manly togetherness! Belonging. How touching . . .perhaps it reminds them of Neuremburg. The darlings.

By contrast in the nerdy and discernibly effeminate News Review section of the Sydney Morning Herald this weekend  (SMH News Review March 5-6 P5) is a boxed section under the banner of Science. It starts out: Whereas the politics of climate change has been a rollercoaster ride, the message from scientists has remained unchanged.

Professor Penny Sackett . . . Australia’s chief scientist said last week on her departure from the post. “All countries should immediately seek ways to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. It’s an enormously important time in history, probably unlike any before.” The piece continues: The US government’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration concluded that “global warming is undeniable” And elsewhere. . .In an unprecedented report the Australian Academy of Science stated in August “We are very confident that human induced global warming is a real phenomenon.”

One can imagine the spectacle of Piers Ackerman, Gerard Henderson, Tony Abbott and other itchy bottomed, angry and indignant nutters defending the holy citadel of Pythonesque delusions against the barbarian hordes. Chaps youre doing a magnificent job of appearing ridiculous. Problem: no one is laughing.

Ladies and gentlemen, is it such a revolutionary notion to suggest that it is people burning increasingly huge amounts of fossil fuels on the planet for the past couple hundred years that’s causing climate change? Something has caused the tipping point to be triggered. Yes we do have human caused climate change folks.

You see climate change deniers are basically people who have their heads jammed so far up their own fundamental orifi that they would rather believe anything, anything, regardless of how bizare, improbable, untenable or just plain unbelievable, than admit the simple and obvious truth that it is people that have caused climate change.  The overwhelming concensus among scientists is that anthropogenic climate change is a reality. People did it. Not sunspots or some other baloney. We did it.  What I find utterly incomprehensible is that 60% of the elected representatives one of our major political parties in Australia either actively deny anthropogenic climate change or are sceptical. Jesus Christ – forgive them for they know not what they do.

So now let’s get really crazy and let’s get wierd. You see what’s interesting is that, in case you hadn’t noticed, there have been an enormous number of significant disaster events going off around the world recently. Oh you had noticed! Well OK then. They may seem unconnected, but let’s play a game of Quantum imaginings for a moment.

The bombing of the twin towers. The 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami. The 7.6 earthquake that struck Pakistan in 2005. An 8.7 earthquake struck Indonesia in March 2005 killing more than 1,600 people. Hurricane Katrina, which inundated New Orleans killed more than 1,200 people. Hurricane Stan the same year which triggered mudslides in countries throughout South America and killed around 1,150 people. The Haiti earthquake. The Christchurch Earth quake. The Victorian Bush Fires. Volcanoes that stop air traffic. The Queensland floods. AIDS in Africa, Revolutions in the middle East.

In Quantum Theory everything is Connected – so what is connecting all these disasters and violent events? I reckons it is indeed the end times. But not the end of the world.  In system theory things become very unstable – exactly what the world is doing now – just before a system goes through what is known as a Meta System Transition. In other words just before the whole system changes; is transformed. It’s a fascinating thing that.

The Mayans as we have been hearing so often of late chose to end their calendar in December of 2012, perhaps seeing that beyond that point, the sequence of history will have come to an end. So I am going to make a prediction. The world will become increasingly unpredicatable leading up to December 2012 as indeed it has been becoming. The world will not end on 21st December 2012. It’s doing a magnificnet job of that right now. These are indeed “the end times” referred to in the bible and predicted in the Mayan Calendar. No . . . the world isn’t going to end. But it may be the end of the world as we know it. As I witness the proclamations of Gerard Henderson, Piers Ackerman and the climate change denial tribe, I say bring it on. The New Age can’t get here quick enough in my book. Pass the crystals and wave the incense, it may keep away the lunatics.

Oh and by the way . . .a little additional note because I have been getting quite a few hits from people doing searches with the words tsunamis earthquakes and end times. Here’s what i really truly madly deeply recommend TO ANYONE who is interested in making the earth changes. System Theory calls this the Meta System Transition. If you wish to do it with elegance and grace for the highest good of all, do Check out The Dream Change organization. They are providing deep ecology workshops that assist, enable and empower people to connect at a deep(er) level of the planetary dynamic – it’s powerful and transformative in exactly the right direction. No fruit cake paranoia – just good old fashioned results at a deep human level.

Human over-development is destroying our home on this Blue Planet; this shimmering ball floating in the vast blackness of space. This is our home in the stars and it is being polluted, desecrated, raped and in a very real sense – destroyed, by greed, by ignorance, by fear, by short-term thinking, by denialists. It is time for people of CONSCIENCE to take a stand. Whatever you feel or think that is – non-violent please! – but it is time to take a stand. Get active. Yes . . .become a radical. Do you know what radical means? It comes from the latin word radix meaning root. People need to confront the lies, the greed, the stupidity, the political lack of will AT THE ROOT and people MUST DO SOMETHING POSITIVE AND PROACTIVE. The lesson was given in Nazi Germany . . .that when good people DO NOTHING the world slides into an abyss. Take personal responsibility. Do not let this happen. YOU CAN MAKE THE POSITIVE DIFFERENCE

The Dream Change Symposium is a great place to start your radical (at the root) actions to transform the future. It’s inexpensive – usually around $20 per one day workshop – and sometimes FREE. Get activated. Just do it.

Climate Change Denial – The Very Ugly Truth

13 02 2010

I'm as Mad as Hell and I'm not going to take it anymore

While concern world-wide over climate change has risen steadily and sharply over the past 5 years the latest polling of public attitudes to climate change locally tells a sad and distrubing story. The number of people in Australia, Britian and the USA who believe that climate change is a serious problem has actually fallen in recent years. Why is it so? According to a piece by Simon Butler published in Green Left Weekly (Issue 825 – February 10, 2010) the causes can be grouped under the umbrella of the Climate Change Denial Industry. Here’s how they do it.


Are you getting this?

You see climate change deniers are free to act like adversarial lawyers whereas scientists are far more circumspect and aim for factual objectivity. According to Andrew Glickson on the ABC’s unleashed blog July 2009 – deniers tend to scan for errors “real or imagined” and will use any minor discrepancies as justification to undermine entire reports and much otherwise sound scientific data and output.

Case in point. A small factual error in the 2007 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report concerning Himalayan glacial melt projections. Climate deniers have seized on this one small error (since corrected) to damn the entire 938 page IPCC report.

You were warned . .this is the UGLY truth about climate change denial. It gets worse.

A very nasty stick that the deniers are using is the use of prostitutes . . .er i mean PR people – how could i have gotten that wrong?! Author of Climate Cover-up, a dude by the name of  Jim Hoggen is also a PR consultant. But Jim’s happy to spill the beans and tell it like it really is. He is on the record as saying it is “infuriating . . .to watch my colleagues use their skills, their training and their considerable intellect to poison the international debate on climate change.” He said “”few PR offences have been so obvious, so successful and so despicable as this attack on the science of climate change. It has been a triumph of disinformation – one of the boldest and most extensive PR campaigns in history, primarily financed by the energy industry and executed by some of the best PR talent in the world.”

One is tempted to say something like . . .same shit different day, except this is worse shit and and the different day is the future of your children and your children’s children’s children. Shame on those climate change deniers who are just doing it for the money. We must all be appalled at this blatant toadyism to the rich and powerful at the expense of our common future. One can only hope that Tony Abbott and Barbnaby Joyce will see a shift in public attitude back towards climate change reality by the next election. Putting climate change deniers into political power is among other things an invitation for the perfect bush-fire storm to visit Australia. I mean really . . .  what’s it going to take for these meat-heads to wake up? Does anyone actually want more of the catastrophic fires of last year like they had in Victoria?  Because let’s face it folks, man proposes and nature disposes.  

Come on all you Aussies, Brits and Yanks . . .it’s time to shake off this Ostrich-like apathy and get real. Here’s what you can do when you pull your head out of the sand. Go to your window, stick your head out and yell at the top of your lungs I’M AS MAD AS HELL AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!!!
