Doomsday Clock Has Moved Ever Closer Closer to Midnight, Signalling Major Change in Status Quo is Necessary Now to Avoid Armageddon
And as 2018 begins with the clock’s hands 2 minutes from midnight, the urgency for addressing the threats of global warming and nuclear war is now greater than ever before.
Though 70 years have passed since the Doomsday Clock debuted, human survival from these threats has never been greater. Human activity has set the stage for planetwide peril and only swift and unparalleled human action can change the course of our future. The ongoing changes to the Doomsday Clock not only serve as a warning about a dire situation but are also a call to action to shape a safer and more sustainable path for us all, Kennette Benedict, a senior adviser to the BAS, said in a statement.
Unfortunately, for today’s young and future inhabitants, both these outcomes are irreversible yet our political leaders in this country are failing to take the actions that are needed now to arrest the warming and get rid of all nuclear weapons!
It is a “now or never” situation on both runaway global warming and nuclear destruction of our planet for the long term. And please also consider the suffering and extinction of so many of Earth wildlife and also the many millions of domesticated animals like cats, dogs and many other species of life that will ultimately have no choice but to succumb to the world with unending climate havoc.
We are not the only life on Earth likely to be wiped out of existence due to our foolish, selfish and excessive burning of fossil fuels and the pavement of our planet’s limited green space. There are many billions and trillions of other forms of life that have occupied this planet long before humans existed on Earth. We have a responsibility and obligation to all those species, and all future species for that matter, not to not only to not destroy this “home” for so many of God’s creatures, but also to maintain this Earth in at least as good a condition for life as it was in when we humans began our occupation of Earth’s lands and seas.
Today and tomorrow’s children will scorn us all for all we have not done due to our country’s escalating, obsession with military might rather than what’s right, for all the people sharing this planet now in 2017, and all those who will bear the brunt of our obsessions, having no choice but try to live with our mistakes. We need to face up to living with less; to do otherwise is pathetic and shameful –beyond all human ethics and reasoning.
Latest Climate Science Report: Global Warming is a Slow-growing International Emergency that Must Be Stopped, NOW!
The government should pay (annual sum at the end of a year) to individual and families who pollute THE LEAST (or not at all) during that year. Generally speaking, those are the individuals who drive and fly the FEWEST miles on an annual basis (or not at all); and those households who use the LEAST amount of energy derived from fossil fuel burning, on an annual basis.
For details – click on “ABOUT THIS BLOG”, which is on the homepage of this blog. I will be updating that page to give higher amounts than the sums listed there due to the urgency of reducing the threat of faster warming, which will increase the already huge cost of current and future global warming related environmental destruction of our planet.
Like in the Steve Miller Band’s song:
“Fly Like and Eagle”:
“Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping; in the future.”
Thanks to boisterous words spoken by the President of the United States of America to the United Nations Assembly (whole World) 2017 September 19, many are saying Earth is closer to total annihilation NOW, either by nuclear warfare or, ultimately, by GLOBAL WARMING, (due primarily to a TOO THICK accumulation of GREENHOUSE GASES in its atmosphere, and originating from its HUMAN POPULATION burning WAY TOO MUCH FOSSIL FUEL, and paving away WAY TOO MUCH of its carbon sequestering surface vegetation in the last 150 years) — that its surface temperature WILL EXCEED the level required for sustaining life.

Need to Increase Annual Reward Rewards for Individuals and Families That Successfully Minimize their Carbon Footprint
Because countries like the U.S. and states such as Wisconsin have shown great reluctance to take any meaningful steps to cut annual greenhouse gas emissions released from their jurisdictions, especially by the transportation and utilities sectors of their economies, it is more important than ever for government lawmakers at the state and federal level to provide higher financial incentives than even those suggested in my Concern NOW proposal. The incentive tables need to be updated to provide more drastic and timely reductions in GHG emissions, since the world could be on the verge of what planetary scientists call “runaway global warming”, where the speed of global warming is amplified by positive (more) warming in the system; in essence, the current warming sets other warming forces in motion, creating a compounding effect. This is a very real and dangerous condition that must be avoided at all costs.
Therefore,the Conserve, NOW incentives plan is being revised and simplified as follow:
