The Earth has been in an ice
age epoch, the Pleistocene Epoch, for the last 2 million years, interspersed
with pulses of warm interglacial climates, such as the one we are in. The entire
development of what we call civilization occurred in the last pulse that is now
We are gradually beginning to realize that we have lived in an anomaly.
We have never experienced the normal climate of the Pleistocene, but we need to
prepare for it if we wish to survive. And this we can do. The age of scientific
honesty lies before us as a part of the human dynamic change. With this dawn
comes the understanding of the nature of the pulses that give us our warm anomalies.
Since no mechanistic
cause exists that matches the shape of the pulsating ice age cycles, we need to
look to electrodynamic causes, where electric charge and discharge processes
produce a wide variety of such pulse phenomena. The nature of a discharge-pulse
system is illustrated by the dump bucket that kids love in water parks.
bucket is charged with an inflowing steady stream of water until it fills to the
brim and becomes top-heavy and unstable until it finally flips and dumps its
charge on the kids that love the big splash.
Our nicely warm interglacial
climate is comparable to the dump-bucket cycle, but on the galactic scale, where
it is an
In small celestial electric discharge systems (the pulsars) the
cycle time is short, measured in seconds.
In the water park the cycle is
measured in minutes.
On the scale of the
entire galaxy that extends across 100,000 light
years across, the cycle time is correspondingly longer. While the discharge cycle
varies, it is typically in the range of 12,000 years. We appear to be at a stage
on the galactic scale that is comparable to the last drops coming out of
the bucket. The numerous climate instabilities that are increasingly occurring,
all correspond to an electrically weakening solar system. Their occurrence suggests that a major
transition is near.
While we cannot control
the galactic cycles, we can prepare ourselves for the coming consequences, such
as by creating new agricultural resources out of the reach of the glaciation. It
is known that during Ice Age times the permafrost line was as low as the 40
degree latitude (the blue lines above). Effective agriculture is not possible in
permafrost climates, and large-scale greenhouse operations in the glaciation
zone will likely be crushed under the
weight of increasing snowfall.
When the transition
begins we will most likely see mass migrations occurring, away from the cold
regions where living will fast become impossible. Much of the housing will
likely collapse in the new snow belt regions, extending for example from Canada
deep into the USA. The design limit of roofs, for snow loading, rarely exceeds
100 pounds per square foot. Most houses won't even carry that much weight. The
houses with steep roofs that shed their snow load before it becomes too big,
which may have been common during the cold years of the early 1930s, are now
Most roofs are too gently
sloped for the snow to slide off, or are totally flat and will likely collapse
when the snow accumulation exceeds the design limits. Those limits may have been
safe during the interglacial period, but as we enter the transition period to
the glacial climate the snow accumulation may quickly become several times
larger, and collapse many of the unwisely-built houses and crush the
In order to avoid this
danger we need to create a New World for ourselves in which we can continue to
live. This means that we will need to produce new high-quality houses by the
millions, which can be done with automated production utilizing basalt as a
feedstock and nuclear power to melt and shape it into anything we care to
construct. On this basis we are able to create completely new cities, possibly
by the thousands, with new industries, and set them up in areas where the
glaciation cannot reach them. On this basis we have the capacity to facilitate
the vast mass migrations that will result when entire countries become
uninhabitable, which may begin without warning and unfold quickly.
But where will we build
the new cities? Where will the people go? Where are the big open spaces that can
absorb such an influx? In the USA the great deserts offer wide empty spaces. In
Africa the Sahara does so the same on a very large scale. Africa, with its
central location could become the center of the world?
Africa is an option, but
it comes with a problem. The masters of empire have been on a campaign since
1974 to depopulate Africa of its native population as much as possible. The
genocidal depopulation policy was spelled out in the U.S. National Security
Study Memorandum 200 produced in 1974, the very year that the Global Warming
Doctrine was also imposed on the world, evidently in order to prevent the
self-development of the world and to hide the approaching Ice Age under the
blanket of false science and deceptions of numerous sorts.
The policy to depopulate
Africa to as large a degree as possible was evidently created for the purpose of
making room for the coming mass migration out of Europe once the coming ice age
transition is under way. However, the political tensions that the depopulation
policy has created, renders Africa hardly a willing host on the needed scale,
especially during the initial period and in the current political climate.
Another option would be
to cut down the rainforest of Brazil, which would be the worst option possible,
as the Amazon flowing out of it will be needed to activate the Sahara and Sahel.
This leaves humanity with only one option, to create floating agriculture across
the tropical oceans. Fortunately a thousand mile wide strip along the equator is
relatively free of hurricanes, extending across most the equatorial
circumference of slightly over 40,000 kilometers. The floating agricultural
acreage that would be possible to be created in this area would be 23 times
larger than the total harvested U.S. acreage. In other words, the potential far
exceeds what would likely ever be required.
The tropics also give us
the largest rainfall. Of the app. 500,000 cubic kilometers of fresh water that
falls as precipitation each year; a whopping 400,000 cubic kilometers falls over
the oceans. The equatorial region near the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ)
is the wettest portion of the world, a shifting rain belt within the tropics
that moves northward till August, then moves back southward into the Southern
Hemisphere till around February and March.
All the rainfall that
will be needed for the floating tropical agriculture can be captured right in
the tropics, and held in floating reservoirs until needed, and may ultimately be
used as a resource for the needs of cities and industries.
Freshwater floats on the
oceans. Vast floating reservoirs of it can be created, contained within
thin-walled, impregnated basalt fiber fabrics. The collected water can be
withdrawn at any point where it is needed. The floating agriculture could be
build right on top of it, or the collection system could be surrounding it to
whatever extent it would be needed. It probably wouldn't need to be extremely
large as the average rainfall in the tropics is several times larger than
The Future of Canada
may lay in Australia
Australia has vast open
spaces for industrial development. When Canada needs to find a place for itself
in the New World once its territory becomes largely disabled by the coming cold,
and by the onset of glaciation, it may find a new future in Australia in
partnership with it and with a number of European nations. This partnership
could launch the greatest industrial development in the New World with Australia
becoming the industrial center for it until such time that Africa may supersede
With Canada being located
well above the 40 degree line, its existence as a viable nation will likely end
when the ice age transition begins. A nation that cannot feed itself has no
future. For this reason we will likely see Canada building itself a new future
by helping to build the intercontinental network of floating bridges and
floating agriculture with floating cities spread across the expanse. Australia
could become the industrial hub for the development process. Canada could play a
leading role in the development of large-scale nuclear power facilities,
especially the Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor (LIFTR) that is inexpensive,
safe, and produces the high-temperature process heat that can be pumped up for
the melting of basalt. Canada has one of the world's largest deposits of basalt
and the 5th largest deposit of thorium. With these, the automatic manufacturing
of houses is possible right now, and likewise that of the modules for the
floating bridges. In partnership with Canada, Australia could become the
manufacturing base for the basalt products. With intense enough devotion to the
process, the entire intercontinental bridge network and floating agriculture
could be up and running before Canada would become disabled by the cold and by
the rapidly accumulating snows.
It is hard to imagine a
world in which Canada plays not a major contributing role, which its
involvement in creating the basalt infrastructures would assure to be continued.
Canada and Australia are
culturally close, so that the cooperative partnership would happen naturally.
With the two nations joining hands, Australia could become the industrial
and scientific center of the New World, and become the primary engine for
the development of Africa. Also Australia is fairly close to a major node point
of the ionosphere's electro jets, which would ultimately power its industrial
complex and all the cities that come with it, including the floating agriculture
and all of its cities.
India would likely be
interested too, in this vast development. Thorium power and basalt processing
would quickly become its number one contributing product, which in turn would
assure its food supply forever. Russia and China would join the project for the
same reason. They all need to find their niche in the New World. The USA
would no doubt join right from the start.
With nearly all of the
nations of the world contributing, the 30,000 kilometer long network of floating
bridges, floating agriculture, and a surrounding freshwater infrastructures,
could be completed and augment the world's food supplies long before the ice age
Basalt processing, a
Basalt is a finely
grained rock of ancient lava flows. It is ten times as strong as steel, nearly
as hard as diamond, does not corrode, melts at 1,400 degrees, and can be shaped
into anything from large construction modules to micro-thin fibers that can be
woven into fabrics, robes, and insolating bats. And it is near infinitely
abundant. Also, it is process ready as it sits on the ground. No preprocessing
is needed as in steel production. However, it takes a lot of energy to melt it,
twice as much as for melting steel. The paradox is that this energy requirement
isn't a factor, because all of the energy that is put into the melting of the
basalt can theoretically be recovered from the cooling of the product, so that
the shaping of the basalt is energy neutral. In practice heat losses do occur.
Nevertheless, a well-designed plant should be able to operate with more than 70%
efficiency, and operate pollution free. The nuclear reactor that would power
such a plant would only need to cover the energy losses, due to inefficiencies.
All thermal powered
electricity plants, in contrast, have a substantial energy loss built into its
system. These systems need to have a large differential between their energy
source and an energy sink, in order to produce mechanical work that can be
turned into electricity. Basalt processing doesn't require this energy loss. A
well designed basalt processing plant with a 1000 megawatt reactor should
therefore be able to produce ready-made housing modules at a rate of roughly
2000 per hour. The plants required would be relatively large in size, and those
too could be set afloat on the oceans to produce the floating bridge modules,
etc., produced on site where needed.. The supply system for building the floating bridges
and floating agriculture would then only require basalt as input, of which there
is enough on the planet to cover the entire land area of the world more than
thirty feet deep. And a small amount of thorium 233 would also be needed, and
agricultural inputs of course, and top soil. Most crops might also require a
roof over them, to protect them from the torrential tropical rains.
Building new agriculture
on this platform would assure humanity's food supply with abundance for all
times to come, and this in the most efficient manner possible.
The New Platform for
When this kind of
creative renaissance gets started, a whole new economic system would likely
begin to develop. It wouldn't be a monetarist system. Monetarism requires a vast
differential to exist between the rich and the poor so that the lure of money
can have a corrupting influence that is easily exploited. The New World would
have a form of economics beyond anything that has been seen so far.
It would start with free
housing, food, transportation, healthcare, and education, which are the basic
necessities for a developing civilization. To get the New World development
started this foundation would be offered for free to anyone willing to work on
the projects. This promise can be made, because the sum total that comes out it
is many times greater than the sum total of what goes into it. A form of credit
system would cover the rest to stimulate cultural development, technologies,
art, theatre, and so on.
In today's world
monetarism is killing society. Economics has become a word for looting.
Everything has become profit oriented, squeezing society in every respect,
driving vast segments of people into slum living and homelessness, rent slavery,
and indentured for life for education that in far too many cases is worthless.
Those willing to
participate in the Ice Age World Development Project under the conditions stated
would be lining up at the door by the millions. When this system begins to
develop, the whole world would follow in this path, which would be the richest
that's possible, and it would be totally sanitized of parasites.
The current drive in the
USA to get Franklin Roosevelt's Glass Stegall legislation re-instituted is
failing, because it doesn't offer enough. It offers a separation between
productive banking and predatory speculative enterprises. It doesn't offer to
end the predatory oligarchic enterprises and powers, and empires of power. The Ice Age World Development Project
furnishes a new crown and places it on society
itself, the human being, the only engine for human development. Under the Ice Age World Development Project
the concept of property and the privatization of the
wealth of society, falls by the wayside. That's the only way the new world can
be developed. The Ice Age Challenge is a challenge to create a new renaissance.
If we fail, the human game ends.
Fortunately, nobody knows
how close the Ice Age Challenge really is. It may be only decades away, if that.
The point is that if we knew that the interglacial period would last another
thousand years, we wouldn't be forcing ourselves to create a new renaissance,
and as a consequence we would perish in the whorehouses of the present world's
oligarchic institutions and die of hunger, poverty, war, and plain simple
The Ice Age Challenge
stands before us to create a world for ourselves with such productive riches
that we will not only survive under the worst possible climatic conditions, but
thrive and grow, and become ever more human. Isn't that what we need already
right now? If our world is in such a mess that we cannot survive the return of
the Ice Age, but need to ask, "when is it coming," we admit thereby that we have
already failed ourselves. Our world should be developed to such a point of
creative power that whenever the Ice Age Transition begins, it would have no
impact on human living. Unfortunately, the very opposite is presently the case.
We become weaker, poorer, more isolated, more fascist, and more divided, even on
the critical scientific issues. That is where the tragedy lies.
Thus we face the gravest
challenge ever, which stands before us, with closed eyes. And it is the gravest
challenge that we will ever face, to build the grandest renaissance ever, which
is on a scale that only the Ice Age Challenge has the potential to bring to the
foreground, by which all the lesser merely moral challenges, will be met along
the way of meeting this one critical challenge.
The stumbling block
presently is oligarchism. The masters of empire have blocked the scientific
recognition of the physical challenge before us by every imaginable method at
their disposal, and they do have managed to put humanity deadly asleep, to the
point that science itself has become a death trap. We do see the Ice Age
Precursors before us and we eagerly explain them away, as we have done for more
than 35 years already with ever-greater blindness to reality, to the point that
99.999% of the mass of the universe is deemed not to exist. We make excuses for
our blindness. Something needs to break open on this front. Without a scientific
breakout from the Wellsian type of strangulation of science where only gravity
and mechanistic processes are allowed to be considered, humanity has no hope, no
future, and in a relatively short time not a livable world remaining to live in.
The proof that a
transition may have already begun is not insignificant. In fact it is rather
Our sun's activity is
getting weaker. Its recovery from the last sunspot minimum took longer than
before. The last minimum produced a higher percentage of spotless days than is
The Sun's energy output
is measurably dimming. It has dropped 0.02% at visible wavelengths and 6% at EUV
wavelengths in comparison with the levels at the last solar minimum. These are
big reductions. Also, the Sun's magnetic field strength is less than half now,
in comparison with the solar minimum of 22 years ago. At the same time, over the
last two decades, the solar wind's speed has dropped by 3%, its temperature by
13%, and its density by 20% as of 2008 (before the NASA Ulysses Mission. that
has reported these startling figures, was terminated).
The entire heliosphere,
which surrounds our Solar System, has 'shrunk'. The result is an increase in the
level of cosmic radiation, specifically high energy (GeV) electrons - a minor
but telltale component of cosmic rays striking the Earth and its atmosphere.
Their number has jumped by about 20%, which increases cloud formation and
thereby produces colder climates as more solar radiation is reflected back into
space by the white tops of the clouds.
These are not speculated
effects expected in future time. They are measured effects happening now, and
their numbers are startling. If the 20% increase in cosmic radiation, for
example, is projected forward in a linear fashion, we should be in full Ice Age
conditions in 80 years. If the increase was to happen exponentially, which is
most likely, we may reach full Ice Age conditions in as little as 20 years. In
either case, the consequences for human living are so huge that the conventional
yardstick for measuring the future no longer applies.
When the idea of the USA
was formed, its declaration of independence recognized as self-evident truths that all men are created
equal; that they are endowed by their Creator
with certain unalienable Rights; and that among these are Life, Liberty and the
pursuit of Happiness. This founding principle was not applied to slavery
during the forming of the Union and its Constitution, or else, so it is said, the
not have been formed.
It is said that the good that was thereby accomplished
by compromise would have been
prevented had the founding recognition been applied to slavery. Thus the
disease of slavery was allowed to remain. Unhealed, it festered for almost 80
years until it was exploited by the British Empire as a wedge to destroy the Union,
which nearly succeeded.
The Union was saved in a horrendously destructive civil
war that could have been avoided had the founding principle been applied to
slavery at the very beginning, which evidently seemed impossible at the time,
but might have been possible had the effort been made to do it. It
was deemed in those days that time would heal the disease, which it didn't.
We are still at this
stage. The highest imperative of our time, to respond to the Ice Age Challenge
before us, is deemed impossible to implement. It is said that the implementation
of the Ice Age World Development Project is not possible from the American
standpoint. It is said that the American people cannot be inspired to reach that
high to save their very existence. It is said that the only process that is
deemed possible for America to rebuild its economy is the implementation of the
1960s NAWAPA project.
NAWAPA is a 50-year
project to divert a portion of two rivers that flow into the Arctic Ocean, to
flow south instead, from Alaska, across 2,000 miles of aqueducts, tunnels, and
reservoirs, to irrigate the southern deserts in the USA and Mexico. The project
is huge, the largest civil engineering project ever imagined. It would involve
the building of 360 individual projects, including the building of dams to raise
the water level high enough to cause rivers to flow backwards, and several
pump-lifts to lift the diverted rivers over the 6,000-foot level of the high
desert of the Nevada Great Basin.
The project is so
immense that it includes the building of a 1,700-foot high dam in Alaska, in
permafrost country, and in one of the most earthquake prone zones in the world.
This dam would be nearly three times as tall and nine times as massive as
China's Three Gorges Dam that took 12 years to construct under ideal climate
conditions. The pump lifts too, would be massive, requiring the energy of 36
large 1 GW nuclear reactors that would force the diverted river to flow uphill.
The resulting reservoirs too, would be gigantic in volume and flooded area,
requiring the relocation of numerous cities and towns, the relocation of the
Alaska Oil Pipeline, and the relocation of Canada's transcontinental
The project is so
enormous in scale that it is expected to employ 3 million workers directly, and
another 3 million indirectly on the supply side, for 50 years. Then, when all
360 projects are completed, after fifty years of construction, the project would
bring water in the dry southern U.S.A. at a flow rate of roughly a quarter of
the outflow on the nearby Mississippi River. It is expected that the employment
of 6 million people for fifty years and the mobilization of the American
industrial capacity for this purpose, would rebuild the US economy, even though
no productive benefit would be derived during the construction period, and only
a marginal benefit thereafter. And once it was constructed after 50 years
of work, the resulting system would not be expandable beyond the built-in
limits, primarily because of its limited source.
The project is presently
promoted by the Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee. It is said that the
project is possible to do in terms of getting the American nation to commit
itself to it, while projects like the Ice Age World Development Project is said to
be not possible, judged on the same basis.
While it is certainly
possible to construct the NAWAPA project as outlined in the 1960s, a project
that would draw water from the high sub-arctic, the project would likely be
disabled by the coming Ice Age transition long before the construction of it
would be completed, or at the very best, soon thereafter. In this case, building
the project would have left the USA unprepared for the Ice Age transition, and
without a fall-back position to newly created protected food resources, new
industries, and new housing.
The same consequences
would also apply to Canada, which would be drawn into the NAWAPA project as a
partner. The resulting continent-wide commitment of resources to NAWAPA would
totally prevent the global focus on the return of the Ice Age and humanity
preparing itself for it, such as the implementation of the Ice Age World Development Project. In this case the masters of empire would have a vast portion of
humanity served to them on the silver platter of universal genocide by
By the insurmountable
consequences of ignoring the Ice Age Challenge, by which humanity may become
extinct, the slavery issue becomes incomparable. The only comparison that stands
up is the lack of healing that brought both issues to a critical stage. On the
slavery issue the unhealed disease festered until it nearly destroyed the Union.
In modern times the disease is scientific dishonesty, which likewise festered
for decades, forcefully nurtured by the masters of empire, by which they assured
themselves a clear-cut path to their long-coveted depopulation of the planet to
less than a billion, as has been stated so often.
The lack of response to
the Ice Age Challenge is a case of the long nurtured and now widely accepted
scientific dishonesty, which has disabled the very best of society from being
effective in securing the continued existence of civilization and humanity with
it. NAWAPA, in spite of all its problems that should be blocking factors, is
deemed possible, while the rescuing of civilization is deemed not possible, and
the critical factor that makes it so, is the long-festering disease of
The New NAWAPA
It is hard for one to be inspired by the presently promoted NAWAPA project. It
makes huge demands for minuscule effects in return. The NAWAPA principle is
good, buts implementation is way off the mark. Its objectives can be met in 3 to
4 years of development with modern technological means, instead of the
envisioned 50 years as the project is promoted.
The current NAWAPA plan
envisions to bring a portion of the waters that flow through Alaska unused into
the Arctic oceans, to the Southern USA and Northern Mexico, across 2000 miles of
mountains, while up to four times the envision water volume is available locally
in the outflow of the Mississippi River that is dumped unused into the Gulf of
This outflow could be
trapped into a floating reservoir and be applied to wherever it would be needed,
via a region-wide, nuclear powered, distribution pipeline network.
The floating reservoir
would employ the natural buoyancy of freshwater that is lighter than salt water.
A floating reservoir of any desired size could be created with ease, as no high
strength containment is required for water-in-water conveyance. A relatively
thin barrier would suffice, which could be manufactured immediately with
fiberglass fabrics and Kevlar, two of the strongest sheet materials in current
use. The water could be available as soon as the nuclear powered distribution
system was built, which shouldn't take more than 4 years if the Liquid Fluoride
Thorium Reactor is used as a power source, which is save and easily built as it
doesn't require an extensive pressure vessel for making steam.
Such a system, promising
near term benefits with minimal efforts, is much more likely to inspire
society's support, and it wouldn't be disabled before it gets off the ground, by
the coming climate transition as the northern project would.
Activating the deserts as
a food producing resource is required now, not 50 years from now, as the North
American agriculture is already deeply affected by the beginning climate
transition, small as it may be, such as floods, drought, and wet conditions of
the type that reduced Canada's wheat harvest by 20%, which is currently
expected. The northern U.S. agriculture is no doubt similarly affected.
What is possible and
what is not?
In real terms the 1960
NAWAPA plan is impossible to implement as a crash program. It looks good on
paper as a make-work project, but it is humanly not possible to implement under
the current circumstances. It would require the relocation of three million
families for long periods, many of them into hostile environments. That's not
possible without the large scale provision of housing on a massive scale,
together with schools, secondary support industries, on a surge basis, on
The current economic
system doesn't have the capacity to supply the already existing needs, such as
to end homelessness, slum living, and rent slavery.
With or without the Ice
Age Challenge pushing it, the housing requirements cannot be met without the
development of high temperature basalt-forming processes for the automated
manufacturing of high quality housing at such a low cost that the housing can be
given away for free. Without this type of infrastructure NAWAPA is not possible
to implement, other than with fascist methods. Without the Ice Age Challenge
pushing the required mobilization, these infrastructures would not be created.
Of course, once the Ice Age Challenge is acknowledged, NAWAPA won't even get of
the ground, as a proposal that is dead from the start.
The only project that is
actually possible of the two, is the automated production of houses as a part of
the Ice Age Challenge. Sure, free universal housing by the millions would upset
the current real estate value system, but it is needed, and it will be
increasingly needed as the progressively greater snow load is increasing the
housing collapse in the major snowfall regions.
Right now the collapse is
still minimal, limited to the collapse of a garage here and there, or school,
factory, or shopping center. But the trend is on. The climate transition is in
progress. Nobody knows or can know where it will end.
systems in the transition stage are unpredictable. All that we can rationally do is to respond to the trends in progress and their potential conclusion.
Gambling with the future of civilization and the potential collapse of humanity
is not an option. This factor should determine what is possible and what is not.
The Ice Age Challenge
before us, when it is acknowledged honestly, will invariably render what is
presently deemed impossible, to be possible, with the right leadership of course
that presently doesn't exist but has the potential to unfold out of necessity
and for the love of the good that is native in humanity.
The time will come when
it will no longer be said that society's leadership for the ideal response, or
even the necessary response, is "an enemy of the good," as it is
presently being said.
NAWAPA is too local in scope
implementation of the Ice Age World Development Project is critical for the survival
of all the northern nations, such as Canada that is located high up in the Ice
Age permafrost region, together with Russia, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Rumania,
Norway, Finland, Germany, England, Ireland, Sweden, France, and to some degree
China and India. The 40 degree latitude circle encapsulates much of the
industrialized world. China, Russia, and Canada are already affected by the
climate transition, which is only at the beginning stage.
While these countries are
presently trapped into the same ideological prison where it is deemed impossible
for humanity to meet its needs that may soon be the most critical in the entire
history of civilization, most country's entrapment might not be as deep as it
presently appears to be in the USA that has been intensively subjected to
oligarchic scientific and cultural debilitation.
China is presently the
development leader in the world. It is already active in this capacity in
Africa, to some degree. China will definitely need to consider the development
of new food resources. It will likely be a driving force in partnership with
India to start the development of floating tropical agriculture, which is rather
easy to do, and for which India has the materials in abundance, both basalt and
thorium for nuclear power, for the high temperature Liquid Fluoride Thorium
As a technology itself,
the implementation of floating agriculture is simple. Numerous options exist to
support large flat modules placed on top of mass produced floatation devices,
such as hexagonal modules of the appropriate size that can be tied together into
honeycomb structures to support almost anything. Even the final assembly process
of the platforms can be largely automated.
Once the oligarchic
entrapment of science is broken, which it will when the coming Ice Age emergency
becomes increasingly evident, developments will likely happen rather quickly.
The Ice Age World Development Project might then be taken up in several places
simultaneously. The USA will likely join this effort relatively soon, which is
presently deemed impossible by its leadership and political pioneers, because of
this leadership's deep entrapment into the oligarchic system.
The present effort to
restore the Glass Steagall legislation, put in place during the Franklin
Roosevelt years, doesn't address the nation's entrapment by the oligarchic
system sufficiently to cause a decisive breakout from it in society, which the
Ice Age Imperative has the power to inspire. Other nations may have to be the
ones to pioneer the breakout from oligarchic entrapment, as the motivation for
it is deemed impossible to attain in the USA, as it stands today. This kind of
freedom is deemed impossible. Other nations may have to provide the leadership
that makes the critically essential, possible. Once this leadership begins to
develop, the USA will likely follow.
It has been said that
society tends to follow competent leadership, the leadership with a liberating
vision. This may happen on the international scale.
"Where there is no vision the people
This text of ancient
wisdom hung framed over the desk of the American leader who pioneered the
development towards commercial nuclear power. The man was Admiral Rickover who
moved heaven and earth to create an unlimited power supply system for the
nation's submarine fleet. The term, 'not possible' likely wasn't in his
Ending the yoke of
slavery may have been deemed not possible when the USA became established, but
we will never know if this impossibility was merely assumed for the lack of
vision against the background of the long heritage in America of the oligarchic
system and its deadly effect on human development. The oligarchic system,
expressed as empire, had ruled the world for millennia by then. The breakout
from empire that the American Revolution represented was narrow. Its most
advanced ideal, even its founding principle, was not sufficiently trusted to be
deemed practical and beneficial. It took the consequences of 80 years of
continued slavery to finally end it in America, officially, under the leadership
of a pioneer who understood the challenge to some degree.
The challenge in the
modern world is vastly greater. The unfolding Ice Age transition that the
masters of empire have been able to hide for 35 years under the blanket of the
Global Warming Doctrine, doesn't leave us the luxury to letting things slide for
80 years as for the breakout from the slavery trap, which actually has only been
broken superficially in many places and respects
We really don't know how
much time we have left in the interglacial holiday from the cold that many think
will last forever. There exists no scientific method by which we can know the
final answer to be justified to do nothing without gambling away the future of
civilization and of humanity as we presently do by doing nothing in preparing
ourselves for it.
The precursors are the writing on the wall
We tend to ignore the ice
age precursors, and go to great lengths to explain them away, while we insist
that it is impossible to respond to their writing on the wall.
Most of the world is
saying today to its scientific pioneers, don't waste your time to wake us up, we
don't want to be awakened; we like to remain asleep; it is less challenging to
The breakout from this
self-entrapment will likely begin as soon as the writing on the wall becomes
clearer and unmistakable. When the wave of starvation that presently claims 100
million each year of the billion now living in chronic starvation, and the
silent holocaust of the consequences of the folly of non-response claims its
billion people for the lack of food, maybe the awakening will then begin.
Unfortunately, by then the awakening will likely come too late. In a dying world
the human resources will likely no longer exist for the advanced breakout
infrastructures to be built.
high-temperature basalt processing under pumped up heat from high-temperature
nuclear reactors, while these are still possible to implement today, may indeed
become impossible at a future stage when the big starvation cycle begins in the
shadow of the ongoing climate transition that seems to be impossible to
acknowledge for most leaders on the political and scientific horizon.
At such a stage, what
today is possible but is mistakenly deemed impossible, will indeed become
impossible then, with the consequence that the world population will collapse
below the one billion mark, which is far below the threshold for civilization to
exist. Below this threshold looms a primitive lifestyle that no one living today
would wish to endure, or would be able to endure. The average lifespan during
the last Ice Age glaciation period appears to have been in the range of 15
years. This may be all that then remains possible, if indeed the Earth has not
been made uninhabitable by then, by the huge effects of the depleted uranium
wars that have already horrendous consequences for the entire biological system
of our planet, for which a 100-fold increase in the devastation is prepared for,
pre-positioned, ready to go. If the Ice Age Challenge doesn't cause us to get us
out of this trend that is now fully prepared for the end game, maybe nothing
will. Then the word impossible takes on a totally different meaning.
What is deemed impossible
today will likely be our salvation if we manage to break out of the trap of the
impossible. If we don't manage this, the future of humanity is dim, if it exists
at all if we don't act soon.
The most deadly
disease: Scientific Dishonesty
Is anyone even aware of
the depth of scientific dishonesty that has gripped society, including those who
champion the cause of science? Is anyone aware of the seemingly impossible
breakout from scientific dishonesty?
goes deep, and like a fungus, it is destroying the very fabric of civilization
in almost all the critical arenas. Slavery was only one form of many in which
its rot was felt, and was the mildest case. Other forms of scientific dishonesty
are evident as fascism, oligarchism, monetarism, terrorism and so on. The rot is
even destroying the fabric of science, especially in the arena of astrophysics
that is critical for understanding the dynamics of the Ice Age Challenge before
dishonesty in astrophysics
For example, it is
scientifically dishonest to regard galactic processes as mechanistic processes,
since it is a well-known fact that gravity only rules in the 'small', such as
within the sphere of a solar system, because gravity is the weakest of the basic
forces in the universe and diminishes with the square of the distance. It is
scientifically dishonest to regard this 'local' force the controlling force of a
galaxy, because this type of far-reaching action is not physically possible
according to what is known about gravity.
Orbiting solar systems on
the galactic scale, orbiting the galactic center, are not possible, because the
motivating force, the force of gravity that governs mechanistically orbiting
systems, does not have the necessary reach for such a process to be possible.
Since this impossibility is self-evident, mythological inventions are added,
like Ptolemy's epicycles that he invented to make a false theory plausible. The
modern epicycles are invisible super-massive black holes with such unimaginably
large gravity that the imaginary orbiting of stars around the galactic center
begins to seem rational. However, since this concept too is mathematically
impossible to conceive, more epicycles are added to make the concept appear
possible, concepts like dark matter and dark energy that are deemed to exist but
cannot be seen or experimentally detected. This trap of scientific dishonesty is
cultivated to hide the universal electric force.
requires one to admit that all observed motions on the galactic scale can only
be caused by electrodynamic action since the electromagnetic force is the only
force with the natural large enough reach so that no epicycles are really
required. The electric force is known to be 36 orders of magnitude stronger than
gravity, is experimentally measurable, and does not diminish with the square of
the distance as gravity does, but does so only linearly.
It is scientific
dishonesty to ignore the electromagnetic force, the most far-reaching force in
the universe, for the sake of imposed mythological concepts, and to imagine that
all aspects on the galactic scale are ruled by gravity alone, since it is known,
and experimentally proved, that this cannot be the case.
honesty is liberating
Once scientific honesty
begins to determine our perceptions, the door becomes opened to recognize the
Sun and the Universe as being electrically powered, because nothing else exists
as a organizing and powering force on the required scale. By knowing that the
99.999% of the mass of the Universe exists in plasma form that is electrically
charged and responds to the electric force, one cannot honestly accept the
notion that the electric force that organizes the universe, both on the galactic
scale, and cosmic scale, does not exist. It does exist. One would have to
forcibly close ones eyes and mind, not to see it.
Unfortunately, this is
what all authorized concepts of cosmic science are based on, in the nature of an
intentionally created trap.
It is easily possible for
one to close one's eyes and mind and accept what the 'repeat after me' so-called
'science' imposes. It is easier to accept the voice of authority that imposes a
dream-like state, than it is to accept the challenging recognition of truth that
demands of one corresponding actions. It is easier to stay asleep and dream
life away, but it isn't liberating.
Of course, when the
awakening does begin, and honest scientific recognition begins to make its
demand, the recognition of the electrodynamic universe, solar system, and sun,
is not far behind. With this unfolds the recognition of the deep interconnection
of our climate with the electric cycles of our solar system, and its connection
with the galaxy as a whole. This takes us far away from imagining that our
climate is the outcome of mechanistic cycles, which incidentally, in most cases,
are also electrically organized. The term scientific honesty would apply to such
a case of breaking out of the trap of scientific dishonesty that conjures up
such mythological concepts as the bouncing-ball solar system.
The term scientific
dishonesty applies when the basic reality is understood, but is ignored for
countless forms of compromises, or is politically demanded not to exist, or not
to apply, as under the Wellsian Doctrine for intentionally disabling science.
Under the Wellsian
doctrine, science has become mythological. The result is a perception in which
our solar system orbits the galactic center on a mechanistic path, through
density waves, ordered by gravity, and oscillating above and below the galactic
ecliptic, for which no mechanistic force exists or is possible to cause such
In dishonest science the
recognized concepts become mythical, such as the apocalyptic concept of the
62-million year cycles of mass extinction events that are not supported with
known evidence, as in real terms no cyclical extinction events happened.
According to physical evidence, each mass extinction during the long history of
the Earth has had its own unique physical cause, which rules out the terror
mythology of extinction cycles.
Scientific dishonesty is
cultivated to sweep away the recognized truth in the name of an imposed doctrine
that serves oligarchic purposes.
It is very hard for
humanity to break out of the chokehold of dishonest science where the basic
facts are ignored or turned upside down for the sake of oligarchic imposed
doctrines, such as the gravity-only universe, organized around such mythical
inventions as density waves, black holes, dark matter, dark energy, the Big Bang
explosion that supposedly created the Universe, and the Great Attractor that is
the latest in a long series of epicycles that are needed to rationalize the Big
Bang Gravity-Only Universe. These deceptions are well financed, designed to
darken the light of science, as H. G. Wells has suggested should be done to
protect the oligarchic system that cannot stand in the light.
That a breakout from
scientific dishonesty is possible is self-evident in the existence of
civilization. Civilization isn't built on lies, even on being dishonest with
oneself, but is built on moving with the highest perception of reality.
Otherwise civilization wouldn't exist. The great calamities that tear down
civilization result from the exceptions that hinder progress and reverse it.
The slavery issue
as a case of scientific dishonesty
The pioneering colonists
on the American shores claimed their independence from the looting force of
empire by recognizing the profound universal truth that all humanity is equal in
all humanist respects. On this scientific recognition of their worth as human
beings, they tore down the yoke of empire and claimed their native liberty. They
found the crown of the human being and began to wear it. They fought the War of
Independence for this freedom, but when it came to slavery they compromised with
what they had recognized scientifically as a truth. The compromise resulted from
scientific dishonesty. They created a political union built on compromise.
Building their political house on dishonesty with themselves, was deemed to be
for the greater good, rather than not building anything at all.
Those who demanded
the abolition of slavery were deemed the enemy of the good, and are still
regarded that way. History, however, tells us a different story. The enemy of
the good was the unhealed scientific dishonesty that eventually ended in war
that the people of the union nearly lost. Only after the great tragedy of a
needless and terribly destructive war, was the scientific recognition of truth,
on which the nation was founded, extended to also the slaves, abolishing
slavery, acknowledging to themselves that indeed all human beings are equal,
that the slaves are real human beings.
With this honest
recognition, though it was 80 years overdue, the people finally overturned the
scientific lies that Aristotle had brewed up 2,000 years earlier with his theory
of natural slavery. Aristotle created leadership lies for the benefit of his
masters. He spoke in total opposition to what had already been known and
established as a truth, and had been demonstrated as a truth by Socrates and
Plato. Aristotle is said to have been a student of Plato. This is true only to
the extent of his aiming to discover how to overturn Plato's scientifically
established recognitions of truth.
one of the world's most accomplished masters of scientific dishonesty. He is
still celebrated as a great genius for this reason.
Scientific dishonesty is
big in modern days. The Global Warming Doctrine is a glaring example. It is not
called that anymore. It is now called Climate Change, since the global warming
isn't happening. Now, manmade CO2 is blamed for everything. Whether the climate
gets warmer or colder, wetter are drier, CO2 is blamed in every case, and
humanity is blamed for producing it, which is said to be destroying the planet
with no hope for a solution than for humanity to stop living. The resulting
climate terrorism has gone to such extremes that it was proposed during the 2009
Copenhagen Climate Change Conference that the cheapest way to solve the CO2
crisis is to eliminate most of humanity, something in the order of getting rid
of 4.2 billion people. That's extreme terrorism. It is saying to a child born
into this world, your existence as a human being is an enemy to the planet and
thereby to yourself.
Sadly, the abolition of slavery
didn't end the song of scientific dishonesty.
It took a long time for
the African American people to gain full civil rights in the USA. And this was a
mild case. Countless wars were instigated on the dishonest premise that Russian,
or Chinese, of Jews, or Japanese, or Arabs, are whatever the case may be, are
not real human beings, to enable the slaughtering of them in the various wars
instigated by the masters of empire.
And the case goes deeper
still, which is wrecking the world today economically and financially with the
weapon of monetarism for the ever-wider wholesale looting of society on the
premise that it is alright to hurt the other guy, or investor, or government, or
nation, or merely just the common folks, especially the poor, the homeless, the
unemployed, and so on, -- all of whom are deemed to be not real people, but are
regarded as something less, people who can be exempted from the universal
equality of humanity and being treated as human beings. Thus they can be taxed
to death, robbed blind with fees and fines and other impositions, and price
increases and wage cuts, and so on and on.
These examples serve to
proof a point that is critical as we get closer to the coming Ice Age
transition. The point is that scientific honesty is the gate to human freedom,
so that when this gate is closed, or even partially closed with compromises,
great tragedies occur. In the case of America the scientific dishonesty on the
slavery issue festered for 80 years and became a monster that ignited a civil
war that came with a price tag that far exceeded the supposed benefits of the
compromise with scientific dishonesty.
The compromise of
scientific dishonesty was repeated in countless different forms when society
failed to stop the march of fascism, but let it fester in the world. It should
have been stopped when the French Revolution became a terror campaign. But it
wasn't. It destroyed all of Europe repeatedly, first by Napoleon, then by two
empire-instigated world wars, and still fascism rules more brutally than ever,
exacting a price in tragedies already suffered that is too huge to be tallied
up. And still the compromise of scientific dishonesty continues on this front,
unabated, with ever-new faces being added to its hall of fame.
But the greatest tragedy
for scientific dishonesty still lies before us, and can yet be avoided, which is
found in the world of science itself. The lack of scientific honesty to the
truth already discovered, such as that gravity is a weak force, prevents us from
recognizing that the Universe is actively organized by the vastly greater
electromagnetic force with dynamic interactions that determine our climate,
including the ice age cycles. The hiding of this truth that is known and
established, and its active denial in the halls of science under oligarchic
control, keeps our hands tied so that the good cannot be accomplished that would
enable us to prepare our world for the unfolding climate transition, such as by
protecting our food supply with the Ice Age World Development Project.
The scientific dishonesty
that enables fascism in all its forms, which has nearly destroyed civilization
and may yet succeed if it isn't stopped, pales in comparison with the
consequences of the scientific dishonesty in the sciences itself to block
society's responding to the Ice Age Challenge.
consequences of the blocking of scientific honesty promise to be on a scale in
tragedies that has never been encountered before in the entire history of
We may not be looking at
a repeat of the 'superficial' cold spell that gave the Earth its Little Ice Age
in the 1600's with a half a degree drop in global average temperature. The
Greenland ice core samples tell us quite a different story. They speak of a more
distant past, the normal ice age climate that was 15 degrees colder, not half a
degree. Nobody really knows what this means, because what we call civilization
developed entirely during the nice warm interglacial period that appears to have
run its course according the precursors that we can already see.
In addition to the colder
climate in the coming glaciation period, we will see the greenhouse effect of
the Earth's atmosphere reduced, which derives 97% of its moderating effect from
the presently high concentration of water vapor. The ice core samples tell us
that the water vapor concentration, together with snowfall and rainfall, will
likely be reduced by a factor of 5. The reduced greenhouse effect promises to
give us dramatically larger daily and seasonal temperature swings, and less rain
for agriculture. This trend will likely increase the circle of disabled
agriculture past the 40 degree line where evidence of glacial permafrost has
been found. This circle is already extremely large. Reduced rainfall may have a
disabling effect on agriculture extending over much wider areas. This trend is
already being felt, faintly, in the form of increasing drought conditions down
to the 30 degree latitude (beyond the circle shown here).
The detected reduction of
snow accumulation in the ice core samples, correspond to a similar reduction of
moisture in the atmosphere by potentially also a factor of 5, as the ice core
data indicates, with a corresponding reduction in rainfall. These measurements
make it rather plain that the relocation of much of the world's agriculture into
the tropics, afloat on the oceans, becomes essential for the coming Ice Age
We also face another
critical factor when the big climate transition begins back to the normal Ice
Age climate. And this factor is unpredictable. When a major dynamic system
changes states, large fluctuations occur. While the interglacial climate has
been remarkably stable, a lot of superficial fluctuations have occurred, some
rather big ones too, most of them lasting for just a few decades.
During the transition
period this pattern will continue, but on a much larger scale, corresponding
with the larger instabilities. These transition instabilities may cause the
largest damage. The potential housing collapse may result from such causes, when
for example extreme cold airflows interact with moisture laden airstreams, large
snowfalls will likely result. Under normal glacial conditions the annual
snowfalls should be much reduced as colder air is drier air, but during the
transition fluctuations anything can happen. That is where the danger lies. But
knowing the danger enables humanity to prepare itself for it by creating new
cities outside the snow belts, and, or, replacing sub-standard structures in the
endangered areas. This is a task that can only be accomplished with the
automated mass production of new high quality housing, that the USA, for
example, had the capability to produce since the 1950s, but had denied itself
the benefit of, for the lack of scientific honesty.
The bottom line is, on
the front of the Ice Age Challenge, that the greatest danger, and also the only
danger, which looms before us on this front, is the lack of scientific honesty
that presently prevents all efforts towards humanity making preparations to
secure its civilization. Preparing for the return of the Ice Age glaciation does
not pose a technological challenge, or a materials challenge, or an energy
challenge, but comes to light as a human challenge in the form of scientific
dishonesty. All that we physically need to make the preparations and secure
civilization exists in abundance. The only blocking factor is the scientific
blindness that prevents us from utilizing the resources we have.
When no preparations are
made, what magical solution will people resort to when their houses collapse
under suddenly increasing snow falls? What will they eat when their agriculture
begins to fail, which will then happen all across the Northern Hemisphere? Where
will all the northern nations migrate to when their cities become disabled?
Then, without preparations having been made for new living spaces, what place in
the world can absorb the influx of billions of people, when for example Canada
begins to fail, and Russia and all of Europe, and parts of China, and possibly
some parts of India too. Much of the industrialized world lies within the
potential permafrost circle that conservatively denotes the disabled agriculture
and the extent of the snow and ice fields within?
honesty that enables the timely compensating preparations to be made, which will
take decades to complete, a huge catastrophe would await humanity. It would be
on a scale that no science fiction writer has yet imagined, or can imagine.
Fortunately, humanity has a mind that is capable of great scientific honesty,
which may yet have its day
It has long been believed
that the onset of the next Ice Age glaciation will be a gradual occurrence over
the span of thousands of years, resulting from a combination of orbital
variations of the Earth around the Sun, such as the changing tilt and direction
of the spin axis of the Earth in the order of 41,000 years, etc.. However, with
modern computers it has become possible to calculate the changing solar exposure
that these interacting cycles imply, and the result shows that the computed
mechanistic cycles don't match the ice core records. They don't even look
similar, and the computed values are way off in comparison with historic and
For example, the current
value is lower than it has been during most of the last Ice Age (the green
circle). According to the computed value we should be in a full blown Ice Age
right now that should have started several thousand years ago, but this isn't
The most exhaustive
studies that have been conducted on these cycles show that they are not
causative of the ice ages at all, but are essentially secondary in nature. The
studies prove that the Ice Age Cause is electrodynamic in nature, which in the
cosmic context can produce large and rapid fluctuation with unpredictable
timing. In other words it will likely not take thousands of years for the
transition to happen, but that it could begin without warning and play itself
out rapidly over a short span of time between possibly 1 to 50 years, as the
Polish ice core researcher Zbigniew Jaworowski
suggests from his half a century of personal involvement in ice excavations on
six continents. He suggests that the transition is already overdue by a few
hundred years, so get the fur coats out, it is coming. He suggests that it could
happen in 50 years or 150 years, or could have already started.
In the light of what is
now a well-established understanding of the ice age dynamics, it is scientific
dishonesty to ignore the known facts and place public policy on the discarded
notion that the ice age transition is still a thousand years distant, such as we
see it reflected in the promoting of the NAWAPA project for bringing artic
waters to the south that are the first to be affected by glaciation. Political
leadership should begin with scientific honesty. This rarely happens anywhere in
even happens in the sciences themselves. The orbital-cycles theory, as a theory
for the ice age cause, is itself a mild case of scientific dishonesty, since it
is known that the total solar energy received on earth is always the same no
matter how the Earth's spin axis is tilted or directed.
The same is true for the
100,000-year eccentricity cycle of the earth orbit around the Sun. The
yearly-average energy received from the Sun is always the same, no matter how
large the eccentricity is. This was known since the publication of Kepler's
second law. The only difference on earth is found in hemispheric and seasonal
variations, but not in total energy received.
That the glaciation
cycles are not hemispheric is evident in the close similarity between ice data
from Greenland and from Antarctica, which shows that during changes in the ice
age cycles, the Sun itself is changing, is getting dimmer and less energetic,
and that with it the entire Earth is affected simultaneously.
needs to begin with the recognition of scientific truth in order that
civilization can be protected, and for that to be effective society needs to be
scientifically honest itself in a wide variety of respects for it to be able to
choose the right leaders or dismiss them if they fail. This happens far too
seldom, especially in the political arena.
oligarchic predation - a case of scientific dishonesty
Economics has become a
game of prey and predator. It is said to be natural. The oligarchy is the
predator and society the prey. The interrelationship between animal predators
and prey is well understood and has been documented with the Lotka-Volterra
equations. If society reduces itself to the level of animals, compromising its
humanity, then the documented interrelationship applies and has indeed applied
since the dawn of the age of empires.
Point A reflects the 12th
and 13th Century, when oligarchic practice, expressed primarily through the
banking institutions of the various monetarist empires, destroyed the physical
productive capacity of society and its power to maintain its existence, that
thereby collapsed. The European population collapsed 30% to 50% in this
The scene changed at point
B, in the 17th and 18th Centuries, when people, escaping the oligarchic system,
established a new living in America and gained a certain degree of freedom from
oligarchic predation. The freedom that thereby became established became
expressed in the scientific and industrial revolution that was quickly reflected
throughout the world. However, in the early 1900s the oligarchic system became
massively re-established in America, especially in the shadow of the Federal
Reserve Act of December 1913 that literally created 'Wall Street' in a
development leading up to point C.
While the American
population still remains relatively stable, its creative and industrially
productive capacity has already collapsed by two thirds. It is now on the steep
slope towards the zero-line. Any society that is scientifically honest with
itself knows or should know the dynamic nature of this interrelationship and
should have shut it down as soon as it begun. But this wasn't done. Society
failed to recognize itself as human beings and thereby subjected itself to a
form of animal dynamics. It allowed predators to be a part of civilization. We
are now at point C where the collapse has become critical. If we don't stop the
predation at this point, our economic strength will be collapsed down to the
zero level where it becomes impossible for society to meet the Ice Age
Challenge, whereby civilization will end. Stopping the collapse at point C is
more than critical, but it isn't being done for reasons of scientific
dishonesty. It is attempted with a feeble project.
Steagall, a case of scientific dishonesty
Glass Steagall is the
name of an act of U.S. legislation from the early President Franklin Roosevelt
years, designed to separate commercial banking from predatory banking. With the
predator being kept away from the 'door' of the productive economy, the
legislation enabled the U.S. economy to revitalize itself. But it didn't last.
Glass Steagall was taken down bit by bit and was finally repealed. In the wake
of this tragedy the predation resumed and became monstrous so that from the fall
of 2008 on, up to 50 trillion dollars in bailout money was demanded by the
predator, under the terror threat that any failing on the bailout front would
collapse the entire financial system with rioting in the streets and blood
flowing. Society succumbed to the terror threat. Terror is one of the predator's
The giant theft of 50
trillion could have been prevented with scientific honesty, meaning that society
would have recognized itself as human beings and shut the predator/prey
relationship down. But this didn't happen. It still hasn't happened. It is being
attempted with an attempt to restore the Glass Steagall legislation. The goal is
to get back to the old compromise of isolating predator and prey. To date, the
restoring of Glass Steagall hasn't happened and the bailout process continues.
This failure wouldn't be if scientific honesty had demanded the complete end of
predatory actions as a matter of principle on the understanding that a human
civilization does not include animalist relationships and needs to be freed from
this pollution for which no principle exists in the human realm. In this note
something greater than Glass Steagall would have been voted up. In this context
the current attempt to get Glass Steagall back as another compromise hasn't so
far inspired decisive actions. And why would it, with it being based on
scientific dishonesty. Society sooner suffers the consequences than to rouse
itself to scientific honesty on this issue.
by scientific dishonesty
The same impotence that
is apparent on the Glass Steagall front is also evident on the presidential
front where the president elect is betraying the nation by being a champion
supporter of the predatory process, as were many presidents before him.
Nothing will change on
this front either, for as long as society itself remain trapped in scientific
dishonesty that places the human being at the level of an animal, as a pray that
is impotent against predators. And so the collapse and the resulting genocide
The only obvious cure for
the grand collapse and genocide now in progress, is for society to break itself
free from the predatory oligarchic system before its total collapse is incurred,
by breaking itself free from its own failing, from its own scientific
Roosevelt once attempted the shutdown of the oligarchic system in America as a
technical solution with the Glass Steagall legislation that separated the
predatory investment banking by the empire institutions, from commercial
banking, as a means for protecting society from excessive predation. The
legislation had a powerfully liberating effect that had enabled America to
rebuild itself into the most powerful industrial economy in the world and the
richest nation on the planet, but the underlying failure lingered on so that in
later years the Glass Steagall Act was massively attacked, then amended
till it remained as but a skeleton, until it was finally rescinded. The
political fight that the American Economist Lyndon LaRouche has been leading for
more than a decade to get Glass Steagall reinstated, is focused on breaking
America away from the collapse process at point C where we are presently at,
where we still have the strength to meet the Ice Age Challenge, but he too seeks
a compromise that merely separates predation out, rather than building a New
World on the underlying principle of civilization. He speaks the words that man
is not an animal, but falls short of demanding a new world to be built on the
platform of our humanity. Someday soon this may happen. Our meeting the Ice Age
Challenge depends on our success on this front, before we drop below point C and
civilization becomes lost.
The technical, economic,
and physical construction problems for meeting the Ice Age challenge are
miniscule as a challenge in comparison with the challenge for overcoming
scientific dishonesty in the sciences, in politics, in economics, and socially.
Without society crossing the hurtle of scientific dishonesty, nothing gets done
or will be done. This has been amply spelled out. It is a well-recognized
reality. And still, the core of the problem isn't being addressed. Interjecting
the Ice Age Challenge at this point may be useful, but it too is presently
blocked by scientific dishonesty.
Nothing concrete has been
done to-date on the Ice Age front, much less bringing it squarely into the
political arena. And nothing is planned to be done. When the subject is proposed
for consideration, the near universal answer is No, No, No, that's
Instead of facing the Ice
Age reality and meeting its challenge, proposals for a multinational NAWAPA
project are being tabled that would take 50 years to complete, promises little
in return, and would be the first to be disabled when the Ice Age Transition
begins, which could easily happen before the first drop of water even comes out
at the end. Ironically, this 'impossible' project is deemed possible to
of lies continues
Thus society continues to
lie to itself. The train of scientific dishonesty is far from being broken. It
is as if society was saying I don't want to wake up, don't waste your time; it
is less challenging to remain asleep. Scientific dishonesty is the way the world
runs. Nothing can change that.
honesty is not impossible to achieve, because the quality of honesty is a native
quality of the mind of our humanity. The Ice Age Challenge is certainly a large
enough imperative to get us to look at ourselves and rediscover our humanity.
Without it, we have no civilization, and without that we have no future. When we
get to this point of rediscovering our humanity honestly in the light of the
greatest challenge, the Ice Age Challenge, will all the still unresolved lesser
challenges, such as fascism, monetarism, oligarchism and its wars, and the
growing rage of terrorism in its countless forms, become resolved along the way
of facing the greatest challenge before us, as all of these challenges have
remained unresolved for the same cause, which is a lack of scientific honesty.
If we make it alive
through to the coming ice age transition and are able to master its challenges
and survive as a society, we will do so because of the progress we will have
made on the front of scientific honesty, because we will most certainly perish
by the continued lack of it. This makes scientific honesty the most critical
factor, second to none. And this gives us hope. By our nature as human beings,
we are conditioned to master the Ice Age Challenge with flying colors. Still we
can fail if we remain trapped into scientific dishonesty with which we have
unconditioned ourselves. Much of the unconditioning has been religiously imposed
for imperial objectives. If we fail ourselves by not mastering the Ice Age
Challenge, we will do so for the lack of effort to reverse the conditioning.
Thus it needs to be repeated at this point that the building of the Ice Age World Development Project
is not primarily a technological challenge as we have the
technologies for it already created, nor is it a materials or energy challenge
as we have the materials and energy resources at hand to carry out the project,
but we don't have the humanist conditioning anymore to utilize the resources
that we have. We have unconditioned ourselves.
The test for our chance
to succeed is the same test the American society had faced on the slavery issue
that had compromised their recognition of the profound truth that all men are
created equal. The development of our riches on this front will determine if we
make it through the coming Ice Age Transition or whether we will continue to
deny ourselves in our folly. These considerations render the Ice Age Challenge
the most momentous challenge of all times, and also the most liberating one if
we take up the challenge honestly.

"Dynamic Ice Age Recovery", was suggested, but the term recovery,
