…so here is the thing, yep, this is a lonely place to be and here these fine people have assembled a workshop to help you and others come to grips with realities, they are not grief councilors rather they are educators on what this all means, they help you with materials and such so that you can explain this to your family and friends and not be so lonely…I have been watching and reading Dr. Guy McPherson for a very long time, a decade maybe and his saying is “only love remains” among others that absolute perfect sense to me…you can read all kinds of stuff, watch all kinds of videos, tell people about them, send them links and still feel all alone, I do but your circumstances are not mine, so please, do yourself a favor, gather everyone together and teach each other that only love remains…

…since I started page one some 2 weeks ago or more and if you have been following the maps, the sea surface air temp in the Gulf of Mexico has been on average 83F…now there is an algae bloom closing the beaches of Mississippi, there blooms stop oxygen during their life cycle and when they die as well…the oceans are getting hot, sea life is dying and washing up on shore and we keep burning coal and flying in airplanes and eating cows…the ice is melting everywhere and more and more methane is being pumped into the air…don’t worry, it’s all a hoax and the prez has it all under control because he knows all of this is going to return to the way it was because it’s all a cycle…the cycle we are trapped in is extinction, this is the 6th one, maybe microbes will survive somewhere deep down in the oceans, everything else is go to, well, you fill in the gaps _________, _________, _________ …

…look at Alaska, Siberia and Greenland, O my fucking gawd…

…today I added the sea surface temp maps so you can see the heat, sorry, it is very gross to look at knowing what we know, it is heart breaking…only love remains…

…The Resolution…document

…There are those that lead and there are those that follow and there are those that best get out of the fucking way or we are all toast…there is only one that deserves to be our President, through thick and thin Senator Bernie Sanders has been there for us and will be there for us, all of us, everyone is included…all of our shadows are the same…make it so people’s, get it done…

…the Arctic is, well, on fire, in one form or another and the Antarctic is doing really strange things and the oceans are loaded up the carbon, the skies are loaded up with carbon, CNN has a video of a shark feeding frenzy on one of their own, humans aren’t acting too much different…as members of this house we call Earth I suggest everyone take a time out, go sit the the corner, facing the corner and shut up, if you cannot say something nice don’t say it, spread a little love, give each other some space and share a bit of Peace, marvel in the fact that all we have is each other…yes the video’s included with the article are most likely shocking, I haven’t watched them, I may never watch them, I think it’s called over-load, man over-board and the worst part of this whole thing is it is only going to get worse, much worse, the thin fabric of civilization as tearing at the seams, particularly here in the States because we have a mad-man at the wheel driving this bus and no one has the guts to make him stop…sorry for the rant, my health isn’t all that good and I didn’t sleep well because my mind was stuck on a certain someone :) …

…click on the images to make them full size and read the temp scales and the ranges, all are in C and for us dummies we have to convert them to F but it’s okay of you don’t, these pictures tell the story well enough that you don’t even need to know how to read…here in AZ the monsoons have usually begun by now, it normally rains in Prescott on the 4th of July, while I was growing up here you could go to the Bank on it, we’ll get rain someday, just don’t know when and if it’s over 105F to 110F it’s too hot to rain and that is where we are now for the foreseeable future as far as I know, I could be wrong, that has been known to happen…
