The most critical paradigm for our age

The evidence that the next big Ice Age will begin in 30 to 50 years, with a 70% colder, dimmer, inactive Sun, is relatively plain, so that it is increasingly harder to hide anymore. I have explored the principles and the evidence in two video presentations, Ice Age with a dim Sun in 30 years, and, Our Electric Fusion Sun. The discovery of the principles is relatively new, that the Ice Age transition will not extent over thousands of years, but will likely happen in the space of a single day or week, when the Sun becomes inactive. Large consequences will be felt on Earth when the solar energy output is reduced by 70% in a short span of time. All regions outside the 40 degree latitudes will then quickly become uninhabitable, because of the cold, and become useless for agriculture for the weakness of incoming sunlight. Only in the tropics, where the exposure of the Earth to the Sun is the strongest, will conditions remain liveable and some form of agriculture remain possible.

In order to defend humanity against the consequences of the colder and dimmer Sun, large-scale infrastructures will need to be built, such as indoor agriculture, and agriculture placed afloat onto the tropical seas for the lack of available arable land. This becomes the new meaning for the strategic defence of humanity. This defence is critical, because without these created infrastructures, humanity will loose its food resources and subsequently starve to death. Only 1 to 10 million people came out of the last Ice Age alive. We will likely get back to that if the infrastructures are not built. The present trend is oriented towards this outcome. In fact, humanity is committed to it by default, as nothing is being built, and the Ice Age Challenge is deemed not to exist. A large paradigm change is required to get us out of this trap.

The paradigm change is also required for another reason. It is required as the ultimate incentive for humanity to break itself out of the chokehold of empire and its looting machine, its nuclear war commitment, and its commitment to depopulation. Political battles have been fought on all of these fronts for decades, without any success in gaining the needed freedom from empire for humanity. 

Not even as simple a step as restoring the Glass Steagall law in America, has been achieved, that had once protected society's financial and economic infrastructure from 1933 on, to 1999, against the claimed private right to steal by the masters of the empire of oligarchy. No imperative has so far been deemed big enough to cause a movement towards victory on this front. 

With the Ice Age Challenge now entering the scene, with an absolute imperative, some movement towards a New World may yet be possible. This may be our last chance to break free from empire and its potential nuclear war, and its commitment to depopulate the world. The absolute nature of the Ice Age Challenge should logically be big enough to create the needed new paradigm that opens the window to freedom on all fronts, for without it, what we call civilization, ends.

The dialog in the story here is centered on stepping up from a failed military missile defence system, such as the famous SDI project of the 1980s that had been wrecked before it became implemented, to defending humanity against the New Ice Age as the New Paradigm. With the New Ice Age already standing on the horizon, it offers us the greatest imperative that is not manmade, that should cause such a large shift in paradigms that it would enable us to survive in the world, where otherwise we would not. It should obsolete nuclear weapons now and for all times to come, and likewise all weapons of war, even war itself, and thereby give us a chance to meet the Ice Age challenge fully and live.

This change in paradigm is not something we may need in the far distant future. The Ice Age may begin in 30 years. Action on this front is needed now. It should have already started. To get this action started is the real strategic defence that humanity requires.




      Steve and Ushi arrived at the conference hall almost an hour early. Steve felt that it was important to have a front-row seat. For this we had to rush through breakfast. Still, that didn't seem to matter. Ushi barely touched her breakfast anyway. Instead, she had four cups of coffee and hadn't been able to sit still for a moment. She tried hard to conceal that she was more than nervous. Ross and Steve hugged her and assured her that she would have full support if she needed it, to which I added that she was a giant in her field by her own right, and would have no problems. She hugged me for saying this.

      Ushi became a lot calmer during the lead-in lectures. She wrote down everything that was said about the SDI. The policy was that there would be no transcripts available afterwards, and no tape recordings were allowed. Only handwritten notes could be taken out of the auditorium.

      By the time the lecturer came to his summation, her hands were no longer shaking. The writing had slowed down, she even allowed herself, occasionally, to slump back into her seat and just listen.

      "It has taken us a third of a century," said one of the speakers in closing, "and trillions of dollars to get the world into the arms race. Getting out of it probably won't be exceedingly cheap either, nor will it happen quickly. But at least we have a chance now with so many people working around the clock to make the Strategic Defense Initiative a reality!"

      The crowd cheered the speaker as he left the podium. No one could reasonably argue now that the system we were about to give away was just a paper tiger with no teeth.

      Then came the speaker from the Energy Department. He got onto the platform while the audience was still applauding. He waited patiently, applauding too, till all was quiet. He turned out to be an excellent speaker with a dry humor. He had brought along a movie of his experimental battery array. The batteries actually powered the model of the Eximer laser. The battery array consisted of four thousand car batteries purchased through a discount store, strapped together with automotive hardware. The array delivered enough power to sustain an eleven-minute burn of the laser. He presented some figures, comparing his six-megawatt power pack to the giant two-thousand-megawatt Hoover Dam. The output of the dam was in comparison a few hundred times larger, but its construction cost was thousands upon thousands of times greater.

      The message of his lecture was that space weapons power is in reality rather cheap. "Actually," he said, "it won't cost the taxpayer a single penny, because the United States' Strategic Defense Initiative has been canceled as of today. The great dream ended. The President of the United States has been advised that building the system is detrimental to the country's security and might prove fatal to the human race."

      There was silence for a few seconds. No one clapped.

      "You must be mistaken!" shouted someone from the floor during the moments of silence.

      "I wish I was," the man replied softly, and then he introduced me in the midst of a storm of discontent.

      As I walked up to the stage I could understand what Stravinsky must have felt like on the opening night of his great orchestral composition, the Rite of Spring that the audience broke into a riot over, before the piece had even been performed. Stravinsky is reported to have commented in shock, "How can they protest against music that they have never heard?" I faced a similar protest from the audience of physicists and other scientists.

      Eventually they did let me speak. It was plain to see that I had to be totally honest with them. The slightest deviation could start another riot. So I told them the truth about what we had all witnessed six days earlier when the cruise missiles were unloaded from submarines and one of them was launched from a Russian fishing boat that had been stationed off the coast. I told them that the cruise missile had not been detected by any radar or any of our many sensors, and that it wasn't brought down until it came within a few miles of Washington, DC. I pointed out to them that the SDI had become obsolete at this moment, simply because the nature of the threat had changed. I also told them that the President believes that this new cruise-missile threat might be the result of Russia feeling itself increasingly boxed in, strategically.

      I used Ross' saying, "Whoever has the SDI first, controls the world." Then I suggested that this saying is history, too. I told them that we must deal with the new threat that has been demonstrated to be rather credible.

      "In dealing with this threat, we must of course recognize that psychologically the SDI was a mistake," I said, "and the best way to respond to a mistake is to correct it." I told them that it is the President's hope that Russia will remove its threat if we let Russia out of the strategic confinement that we have created for them with the SDI.

      I stepped aside from the lectern at this point. "It is my personal conviction," I said, "that the cancellation of the SDI will defuse the situation. Many people may think that we are taking a great risk in doing that, but I don't think so. We are putting the focus on unity instead of adversity. Russia doesn't want to be destroyed in a nuclear conflagration, and neither do we. This is something we can respect about each other. And in respecting this common need that we have as human beings, we also honor each other's intelligence and integrity. Thus we are hoping that the Soviet Union will respond in an intelligent and honest manner to our new direction."

       At the end of my little speech I smiled and added that there was a certain amount of affection underlying this offer, because it allows the Soviet Union to pull back to a position that is more secure for its existence. I even suggested that we might be able to persuade the Soviet Union and the USA to join hands against our common enemy that has manipulated both governments into building the doomsday nuclear weapons in the first place, with plans for us for our mutual annihilation.

      When I stepped back behind the lectern Steve stood up and said that he had something important to add. So I asked him onto the stage and onto the speaker's platform.

      He said that the cruise missile incident had been a puzzle to him from the moment he heard about it, but that he couldn't figure out why, until this morning. "We were ambushed last night by a member of the fondi who bragged to us that the Russian cruise missile buildup outside the shores of the USA was not for the purpose that we suspected, but for something much worse. He didn't say more about it. It must have been obvious to him that we would figure this out. Indeed, it just became clear to me what this purpose might be. It's actually quite simple if one looks at this puzzle from the viewpoint of the fondi. The fondi are the super-wealthy oligarchic families, many of which can be traced back to the old Venetian, Florentine, and Geonese banking and financier empires which once ruled the world. These people and their equals in other countries, still rule the world. With their wealth they have acquired for themselves corruptible people and the means to get them into high positions of power within the governments of the world. From there, the acquired stooges will serve their masters and serve them well, or they will die. The oligarchy and its army of servants, of course, all have the same objective as we do. They want to survive. Except, the feudal oligarchy knows that it cannot survive long in a developing, progressive, renaissance world. This is why the USA is a threat to them, and the Soviet Union, too. It has to be their hope that the USA and the USSR will annihilate each other in the Cold-War game that they probably invented for that purpose. The game is correctly identified by the doctrine of Mutually Assured Destruction, because that is what has been assured to happen by the setup that has been created. This means that we have change the setup in order to prevent the ultimate destruction that has been assured to happen."
