Primitive man believed the weather was determined by his good or bad actions. Today this belief takes the form of believing climate is determined by man, rather than by the Sun’s irregular orbit & activity: Milankovitch Cycles, Solar Inertial Motion, Solar Flares.
Only complete idiots and uninformed fools think the Earth’s average temperature is determined by the Sun’s irregular orbit.
Those with a bit of knowledge recognise that the average temperature of the Earth is primarily determined by irregularities in the Earth’s orbit and the concentration of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere -greenhouse gases in the atmosphere increasing at the fastest rate in all of geological history as a direct consequence of human actions.
Record temperatures -of oceans, of the lower atmosphere and on land-, record forest fires, record ice melts, record levels of atmospheric CO2 (within the timeframe of human existence), and truly astounding levels of denial of reality!
Whoops! There goes the Greenland ice sheet over the next decade or so.
The French government orchestrated the sinking of the Rainbow Warrior. How dare anyone peacefully protest the actions of the warmongers?
Apparently, nothing changes politically.
However, the Empire of Lies is not invulnerable to the laws mathematics, physics, chemistry and ecology etc., and is now paying the price for centuries of deceit, manipulation and exploitation.
The European ‘garden’ has been in decay for decades. But now parts of it are on fire as well as enduring rapid financial-economic-social-environmental decay.
This dismal scenario is ultimately the product of centuries of looting and manipulation by the liars and thieves at the top of the power-money pyramid.
A worthy rant on the current mess from George:
P.S. On Airstrip Five we are still in the slow decay and collapse phase, with the controllers making everything progressively worse by the minute, in futile efforts to prop up unsustainable financial-economic-political arrangements imposed from ‘above’.
‘We’re all saved! Global Warming is over! Food becomes abundant! So now that’s fixed, I expect AFKTT and others to quote it weekly, like they did when it was drought? Fair’s fair, right?‘
If you think ‘we’re all saved’ you really are more of a fuckwit than we previously thought.
Planetary Meltdown is currently only in tan preliminary phase: just wait till the Arctic Sea becomes ice-free. That catastrophic condition is unlikely to occur this year but is now inevitable in a geological blink of an eye.
The superheated waters of the Atlantic and around the North Pole, the record low Antarctic sea ice cover, the massive increases in both CO2 and CH4 in the atmosphere, the record-breaking temperatures on land and in the oceans all around the world etc., are clearly a serious omen for the future that you choose to ignore for political/commercial/ideological/ego reasons, Dr D.
And on the matter of living arrangements in the US:
On the matter of the actual evidence for ultra-rapid meltdown you might try this:
However, we do note that you are immune to actual scientific data and hang on to idiotic notion with a truly irrational tenacity which is a sure indication the reason is emotional.
Or maybe you are just a clown.
Anyway, keep bloviating, Dr D; it’s what you do best!
bloviating (present participle)
talk at length, especially in an inflated or empty way:
“when so many people are bloviating, it’s easy to dismiss all discourse as chatter” · “you don’t come here to hear from a pompous guy bloviating about his own personal opinions”
Yes. keep bloviating, Dr D; it’s what you do best.
But don’t expect informed people to take your bloviations seriously.
(dedicated to Afewknowthetruth)
I’ve been a fan of Talking Heads for decades but cannot stand talking heads.
By the way, the waters of the Atlantic are superheated, the ice in the Artic region is super-thin, the ice around Antartica is at a record low, Canada is a semi-burned tinderbox, and Airstrip Five (NZ) is no longer a ‘safe haven’ for those hoping to escape the effects of planetary overheating brought on by the overuse of fossil fuels. The warmest May ever and the warmest first half of June ever.
Also, the economy and welfare systems have been driven into a ditch by the managers of NZ Inc. I guess the manager’ short-term fix will be to ship tens of thousands of Ukrainian refugees here to prop things up for a few more months.
Propaganda, censorship and tyranny reign supreme, along with ignorance and stupidity.
P.S. The next round of drenching of the North Island is underway.
‘Greta told us the world would end by TODAY (21 June 2023) yet we are still here. Maybe she is full of shit?‘
The fact that Greta gets so much exposure/promotion by the mainstream is a sure indication the controllers have a use for her. Nothing to do with protecting the environment, of course. Just promotion of their fake ‘green’ agenda.
Neil Oliver on ‘the controllers’. According to Neil, there are just 8,000 of them.
I don’t know how he comes up with that number, since the controllers are never seen -just their underlings the enforcers of the crime cabal.
It seems to me he just came up with 8,000 so he could do simple mathematics.
Nevertheless, he is right. The slaves do vastly outnumber the slave-masters.
On the other hand, for the moment, all the power lies with the slave-masters. Well, it does until Russia and China etc. unseat them or until environmental-economic-social collapse unseats them; whichever comes first.
A lot comes back to what one chooses to believe. For the moment a substantial portion of the dumbed-down populace still believe the lies. But surely continuous failure must eventually generate disbelief.
It all started with distant ancestors working out that hitting a competing human on the head with a large stone was a strategy for success. Working out how to fix sharp stones to long sticks and throw them accurately was the great leap forward that facilitated domination of larger, more dangerous species, at a distance.
Sharper stones; bigger sticks; better throwers.
Once people at ‘the top’ realised that symbols carved into stone or written with ink could control large populations, humanity was well down the path that led to the present predicament.
Adding heat engines fueled by fossil fuels was the final ingredient necessary for creating the presently unfolding catastrophe.
So here we are now, with the most effective remote killing systems ever developed -all of them products of fossil fuels-, the bulk of the population controlled by symbols on bits of paper or screens -predicated on fossil fuels- and headed at an ever-faster pace towards complete collapse all the systems that made industrial ‘civiliastaion’ possible in the first place.
We could argue that it need not have come to this, since most of the critical factors and failure points had identified and quantified by the 1960s; a path towards aversion of catastrophe -or at least delaying it by a substantial time- had been identified. However, the critical factors, the ‘weak links’ of the analysis, not identified by the 1960s, were human stupidity, greed, and the ruthless of control of western societies by banks and corporations, plus the ruthlessness of whoever sits above banks and corporations in the power pyramid.
We can call them satanists, for want of a better term.
We probably have another few years before the last of the ice covering the Artic Sea melts completely.
One of the many reasons why Kennedy had to be murdered by the US military-industrial-financial complex and why warmongers installed as presidents for the next 60 years, with the one aberration over that period being ‘assassinated’ as we watch.
Overshoot is the answer to the question why we are in a predicament, not climate change, which is but a symptom to what has been described above. Should we be able to reduce overshoot, and come back to within resource and pollution limits, then we would be able to slow (but not stop) the many related crises, including climate change. Like it or not, ice melt and a subsequent sea level rise is already baked in, together with the loss of the best of our arable lands, reliable rainfall patterns and much more.
It’s time to admit: we have already overshot the safe limit when it comes to CO2 levels.
However, in the anti-science, anti-logic, anti-reality, anti-environmental stance of numerous TAE commenters, denial of the well-established link between overuse of fossil fuels, the overgeneration of carbon dioxide, population overshoot etc. amounts to religious zealotry; it is a foundational principle of that religious zealotry that humans desequestering previously sequestered carbon and adding tens of billions of tonnes of CO2 every year (around 40 billion per annum, I believe, hence the inexorable rise at around 2.7 ppm per annum) cannot be lethal to the point of terminating life-as-we-know-it in a matter of decades.
Hence the numerous declarations that ‘CO2 was much higher in the past’ and the numerous attempts to ‘prove’ that atmospheric CO2 at 190 ppm above the recent 800,000 year average of 230 ppm is not terminally destabilising, completely ignoring the fact that the rate of change is the fastest in geological history.
Dinosaurs didn’t live in cities constructed less than 2 metres above sea level (which is in the process of rising at least 7 metres, due to the combination of thermal expansion and loss of ice on land masses).
Dinosaurs were not dependent on industrial agriculture (which is dependent on continued use of fossil fuels and continued degradation of the environment, including further elevation of atmospheric CO2 at the fastest rate in geological history).
Dinosaurs didn’t drive cars or manufacture concrete. Dinosaurs didn’t manufacture steel or glass. Dinosaurs didn’t release a multitude of life-threatening toxins into the environment.
Dinosaurs didn’t consume stupendous quantities of fossil fuels to engage in industrial warfare.
That’s why the reptilian-dinosaur line reigned supreme for the best part of 200 million years -versus the reign of homo stupidicus of just 20,000 years (if we count from the construction of the first cities) and the reign of homo maximus greedicus stupidicus of less than 200 years (if we count from the mass-scale use of heat engines that commences around 1830).
Ignorance, stupidity and hubris continue to reign supreme in the minds of many commenters on TAE.
Let’s see if you are still mocking and scoffing two years from now, when atmospheric CO2 is close to 430 ppm and ocean acidification is the worse than now, and the somewhat delayed El Nino is in full swing. (Remember 2016?)
Let’s see if you are still mocking and scoffing around 2028, when atmospheric CO2 will be 440 ppm if we are lucky and far above that if the northern forests have gone up in smoke -the start of which is happening right now.
Let’s see if you are still mocking and scoffing when industrial society has collapsed as a consequence of planetary overheating (relative to the conditions of an average atmospheric CO2 of just 230 ppm that allowed modern humans to overrun the planet), in companion with depletion of resources to the point they can no longer be extracted and processed…. which is likely to be around 2030 but could well be before then.
‘And yet it never matters.’
Precautionary Principle: do that which is potentially lethal.
Try asking your children or grandchildren a few years hence whether it matters or not that you promoted the fucking-up their future instead of devoting energy to protecting their future.
Meanwhile, the environment that supports life-as-we-know-it continues to be degraded at an ever-faster rate.

Thanks for the interesting link, Germ. it just confirms what many of us already knew. Few ever mention ocean acidification, another unseen killer.
Although there are major surprises in politics, commerce and military activity etc. there are no major surprises with respect to the continuous degradation of the environment nor the eventually-deadly addition of around 40 billion tonnes of CO2 to the atmosphere and oceans every year via the burning of fossil fuels.

As Germ has pointed out, TVASF (well many of them are) But so are most of those who didn’t volunteer for clot shots or didn’t get bullied or conned into accepting toxic jabs; they are also ‘so fucked’. -especially if they are young.
It’s just a matter of time before industrial humans push atmospheric CO2 through the super-critical 450ppm level. The critical 350 ppm necessary for the Earth’s long-term thermal stability was broken through decades ago!
The time lag of the heat of fusion of ice and ocean heating has given us some ‘breathing space’.
No one can accurately predict when we will break through 450 ppm, since numerous positive feedbacks that have already been triggered, including self-reinforcing loss of Arctic and Antarctic sea ice, destabilisation of permafrost and buggering of the Jet Streams to mention just a few. The heat dome over Canada is sure having some interesting effects. And it’s not yet the height of summer, nor El Nino.
At the current rate of around 2.7 ppm per annum it will take around 10 years. (today’s jump was on the high side).
Ten years, if we are lucky and great swathes of forest don’t go up in flames.
Undoubtedly those who don’t understand what is happening will fight tooth and nail to deny reality and come up will all sorts of phony graphs to justify their insane stances on the matter.
‘sfunny how we keep hearing about ‘high energy prices’. Yet oil is incredibly cheap; much cheaper in real terms (allowing for devaluation of fiat money via the central bank ‘printing presses’) than it was a couple of decades ago, when the financial system nearly imploded and the Shrub appeared on the deck of the Titanic and demanded $760 billion, to give to his corrupt friends and backers on Wall Street.

Following on from the warmest May on record, temperatures on Airstrip Five have dropped significantly recently, as cold air has moved across the land mass from near Antarctica.
I cannot think of any aspect of life on Airstrip Five that has not been made substantially worse over the past year by the managers installed, owned and operated by The Corporation.
As I said to my local MP a few weeks ago., if he still has a job one year from now and we meet again, we can be certain that every factor will have been made worse by ‘the government’. The Corporation will keep doing what it does util it can’t. By they way, I did tell him that his stance on environmental and energetic factors was insane. Like many others. he is prepared to sacrifice his children’s future on the altar of Ponzi economics and entitlement in the Age of Consequences. In fact, he is young enough to sacrifice his own future on the altar of Ponzi economics and entitlement in the Age of Consequences.
I am not anticipating a quick end to the various military conflicts instigated and fueled by ‘Oceania’-NATOstan. The Ponzi financial system is just as dependent on war now as it was when it was instituted over three hundred years ago.
What will bring it all down is the inability to acquire easily transported ‘liquid energy’ (just as energy starvation put an end to the plans of the German and Japanese fascists 80 years ago), plus the loss of habitat and loss of infrastructure that comes from pushing atmospheric CO2 so high, so quickly, recreating a Mass Extinction Event from the past, but at an unprecedented rate. Ponzi finance will obviously continue to play a role in the meltdown.
Uninformed, stupid people are blind to the dire consequences of policies and actions founded on ignorance and stupidity.
Therefore, the march along the path of slow (or in some cases, rapid) self-annihilation will continue.
I was shocked to discover that someone who is well informed about fake jabs and fake Ukraine narratives and fake ‘green’ narratives churned out by the totalitarian police states that constitute ‘Oceania’/NATOstan had no idea who Roger Waters is nor any idea what ‘The Wall’ was, or what its message was.
Never underestimate the lack of knowledge and lack of understanding of those around you. Never underestimate the stupidity of people around you. Albert Einstein and George Carlin spoke wisely about stupid people.
And, of course, propaganda works. Thats why the totalitarian fascists persist with it.
And if propaganda does start to fail, there is always censorship to fall back on, along with totally corrupt ‘justice’ systems.
Many decades ago, Huxley and Orwell told us what to expect.
Sadly, the vast majority of proles in ‘Oceania’/NATOstan have no idea who Huxley and Orwell were.
Anyway, we are now in the world that Huxley and Orwell wrote about all those decades ago.
The Age of Consequences arrived a decade or so ago, on all fronts. But the fascist police states of ‘Oceania’/NATOstan have been able to stagger on for a decade, using propaganda and censorship as their prime tools. Nate obviously still doesn’t get it. Jonathan Swift got it 300 years ago.
I suspect most people will start to get it by the end of this year.
Without energy, nothing happens.
A fucked-up environment does not support life-as-we-know-it.
Industrial humans and banksters have only three-quarters fucked-up the environment. There’s still that last quarter to be degraded/destroyed. They’re working hard to wreck that last quarter. And they’ll succeed because that have the courts, the security forces, the utterly corrupt governments and the uninformed masses on their side.
New Zealand? Ha ha ha, I read that Jacinda Ardern was made a dame. If you know a better illustration of how deep we’ve sunk, I’m game.
For a very long time it has been standard practice in the Empire of Lies to lionise criminals a clowns and to award criminals and clowns various ‘honours’.
That is just one of many reasons why Empire of Lies nations continue along the path of self-destruction and into terminal collapse at an accelerating pace.
By the way, NZ is not a country: it is a business, operated from the City of London, with policy inputs from Brussels and Washington.
The peasants are not suffering enough yet, so they are not serious about revolting and many still believe change can be brought about via political parties and voting in the rigged electoral system.
Change will be brought about via the economic, financial, social and environmental collapse at the local level and the absurd strategies pursued by criminals and clowns at the international level that are an inevitable consequence of having criminals and clowns ‘in charge’.
June 5, 2023
The seasonal decline in Arctic sea ice extent was moderate through much of May before picking up pace over the last few days of the month. Meanwhile, Antarctic sea ice extent remained far below previous satellite-era record lows for this time of year.
Average Arctic sea ice extent during May 2023 was 12.83 million square kilometers (4.95 million square miles) (Figure 1a), the thirteenth lowest May in the satellite record. The average extent was 460,000 square kilometers (178,000 square miles) below the 1981 to 2010 average and 910,000 square kilometers (351,000 square miles) above the record low May extent, which occurred in 2016.
Through much of May, extent declined slightly slower than the 1981 to 2010 average (Figure 1b). From May 1 to May 24, extent dropped 963,000 square kilometers (372,000 square miles), compared to 1.12 million square kilometers (432,000 square miles) over the same interval in the 1981 to 2010 average. However, during the last week of the month, the rate of ice loss increased. Overall, the Arctic lost 452,000 square kilometers (175,000 square miles) of ice from May 24 to May 31, compared the 1981 to 2010 average of 279,000 square kilometers (108,000 square miles) during the same interval. The late increase in extent loss dropped the extent below the interdecile range after spending most of the month just above the lower part of the interdecile range.
Down south, Antarctic sea ice extent is at record low levels as assessed over the satellite record since 1978. The Antarctic winter is approaching, so May and June are months of large increases in extent, but this year, extent is far lower than average for May (Figure 4a). Sea ice extent was particularly low in the Bellingshausen Sea, Weddell Sea, and western Ross Sea regions; only the central Amundsen and Eastern Ross Seas were above the typical late May ice extent (Figure 4b).
In an average (1981 to 2010) May, Antarctic extent increases by 3.25 million square kilometers (1.25 million square miles). This May, the increase was only 2.87 million square kilometers (1.11 million square miles). As of May 31, sea ice extent is approximately 700,000 square kilometers (270,000 square miles) below the previous daily record lows, which occurred in in 1980, 2017, and 2019. (Please note that 1986 values are affected by a no-data period from the satellites we use).
The May 2023 sea ice extent continues the very low ice extent conditions seen throughout most of 2022, and generally low ice extents since 2016. For May 2023, weather conditions have been marked by above average air temperatures at the 925-millibar level of up to 4 degrees Celsius (7 degrees Fahrenheit) over the Weddell Sea extending over the Peninsula, and additionally a region north of Wilkes Land. Cool conditions prevailed over the Amundsen Sea, around 4 degrees Celsius below average (7 degrees Fahrenheit). Air pressure patterns for May indicate an especially strong Amundsen Sea Low (12 millibars below the 1991 to 2020 average), shifted somewhat eastward of its typical location. For 2023 to date, the conditions are much the same over the five months so far, with air temperatures up to 2 degrees Celsius above average (4 degrees Fahrenheit) over the Weddell Sea and the Peninsula, and a 9-millibar below-average Amundsen Sea Low centered in the far southeastern Bellingshausen Sea, well to the east of its typical location.

….’Walker’s first point about the decline in moral values and political incivility has reached civil war instigating levels of degradation, deviancy, and treasonous political activity. Not in Walker’s wildest dreams did he envision the grooming and trafficking of children, drag queen story hour for toddlers, pushing children to be mutilated and propagandized into believing they are the opposite sex, promoting deviancy, and having this degenerate behavior jammed down our throats by the government, corporations, and the media.
Destroying our culture, promoting abnormality and sloth, tearing the fabric of our society to shreds, encouraging lawlessness, looting and murder, and persecuting normal white Americans who dissent, is actively promoted, and funded by Soros, Gates, and the rest of the Davos – WEF globalist psychopaths. The devaluation of our lives was never more evident than during the covid plandemic, where the annual flu was weaponized to lockdown the world, create havoc and chaos, institute totalitarian measures to abscond with our liberties and freedoms, destroy the lives of vaxx dissenters, and ultimately destroy the lives of millions who obeyed and were injected with the untested, gene altering, spike producing, Big Pharma enriching concoction.
…Next up will be the Taiwanese, as we provoke China into our next war. As documented earlier, the fiscal trajectory of our empire is on a course towards Armageddon, and the tens of billions in weapons being handed to the most corrupt nation on earth – Ukraine – is simply insane. Biden acts like a Roman emperor dictator (with dementia) during the final stages of Rome’s collapse, while the feckless politicians in the House & Senate sit idly by, cheering on our descent into national bankruptcy.
Can anyone conceive of a weaker emperor than Dementia Joe Biden? He is a low IQ, lying, corrupt to his core, bumbling, child sniffing fool, acting on behest of the Deep State and their globalist cabal. His administration is crawling with deviants, dopes, and those seeking the destruction of our country. The barbarian hordes are streaming across our southern border and being ushered into communities across the country by government sanctioned flights and bus rides. These mostly male Hispanics, Haitians, Somalis, Muslim terrorists, and Chinese nationals are not going to strengthen our country, but contribute greatly to its fall. But at least the ruling class will have maids and gardeners, while Big-Agra will have cheap labor to pick their crops.’
More pushing shit uphill with a pointed stick from RIM.
Land temperatures are largely irrelevant -though wild swings do severely impact on ecosystems.
What matters are:
1. Ocean temperatures (heat content)…increasing inexorably, as pointed out on numerous occasions!!!.
2. The rate of loss of ancient ice…increasing inexorably…as pointed out on numerous occasions..
Both are catastrophically bad and being made worse by continued use of fossil fuels that emit CO2 when burned -the various government-sponsored scams promoted as ‘mitigation’ exacerbating the burgeoning catastrophe.
That’s why RIM assiduously avoids the abundant evidence of both the clear link between rising ocean heat and rising atmospheric CO2 and increasing climate instability and keeps pushing shit uphill with a pointed stick with silly, irrelevant distractions -and in doing so, discredits TAE.
It is largely as a consequence of the bullshit posted on Planetary Meltdown that I ceased to recommend TAE as a reputable website a while ago.
I guess TAE will go the way all such similar websites went: down the drain, with just a few fanatics holding on to false beliefs.
Meanwhile, there are masses of reputable channels not churning out bullshit and obfuscation.
Superb analysis from A.M.
2 million Germans have left the German nuthouse and have relocated to Russia -where they are welcomed. What has been a trickle will sone become a ‘river’ (though presumably the neoNazis in currently control of Germany will take measures to halt the flow -the depopulation agenda not withstanding).
US/UK/NATO stuck in1980s-1990s thinking.
PS. Most of the wheels have now fallen off the Airstrip Five bandwagon and it’s careening into a ditch, as are the other criminal-clown nations of the ‘Oceania’ western alliance.
My immediate problem is to reassemble the gear change mechanism of a bike I acquired for $8 a few weeks ago, the gear changer having seized up from lack of use.
No such problems with the $15 bike I acquired a few days ago. Just a new inner tube and a bit of oil and paint needed.
I am working on the assumption that roads and paths will continue to be usable for a while after the liquid fuels that drive the NZ economy stop arriving -maybe the end of this year, maybe next year. Who knows? We might still have liquid fuels for another couple of years, depend how quickly it all unravels.
Also assuming the housing crash will accelerate, as food and other essentials become increasingly unaffordable and unemployment surges.
Much discussion about the collapse of the health system, currently noted as being in the worst state in many decades.
Another storm system seems to be building, lining up for the next hit on the North Island. We knew the point would be reached whereby destruction via climate instability/overheating outpaces restoration.
Further suggestion that the UkoNazis had to fire all their Patriot missiles to avoid a much bigger explosion when an unstoppable Russian missile was sure to hit.

‘The Ethical Skeptic makes a case that atmospheric CO2 rises come from the Earth’s core temperature rising. Atmospheric CO2 was the highest in modern record during northern hemispheric winter in COVID-lockdown’
Not true, of course.
Anything but the truth when it comes to the role of CO2 in inducing Planetary Meltdown. Too much vested interest at stake. Better to melt the planet than forgo the use of fossil fuels.
The Northen summer is going to be very ‘interesting’.
And 2024 will be even more ‘interesting’, if the anticipated El Nino kicks in the way it is expected to.
By the way, the Earth’s core continues to cool at a very slow rate.
It seems that the UkoNazis had to launch all their Patriot missiles to prevent them being blown up on the ground and generating another mushroom cloud.
Bakhmut about to fall -be evacuated.
Where’s the Indian billionaire who is pretending to be PM of the UK?
Temperature of recent weapons stockpile explosion not high enough to generate DU oxide dust?
Ukraine to unleash terrorists on Europe if European nations fail to deliver desired weapons?
Thanks for the DU shells, Britian. Just what is needed to convert the killing zone into a toxic killing zone.
Industrial agriculture is a mechanism for converting into food (Albert Bartlet). Now that global extraction of oil is in terminal decline, humanity -in its state of gross population overshoot that was facilitated by industrial agriculture- is destined to experience both a fall in material living standards and widespread starvation.
The fall in living standards and availability of food will be accompanied by the meltdown of Ponzi currencies and the meltdown of Ponzi ‘economics’ -a travesty of real economics. Like everything else, Ponzi ‘economics’ is dependent on oil.
This is all occurring to the backdrop of Planetary Meltdown due to excess atmospheric CO2 -which came from overuse of fossil fuels that triggered the population overshoot and the facilitated the destruction of natural systems that make life-as-we-know-it possible.
No wonder ‘no one’ wants to talk about any of it when denial of reality is so much easier and so much more comforting.
We hit the seasonal atmospheric peak in a couple of weeks, setting a new record for atmospheric CO2 that has not occurred in millions of years.

The war in Ukraine can only be conducted via the use of stupendous quantities of fossil fuels every day.
Meanwhile, the conversion of trees into CO2 and smoke in Canada will have some ‘interesting’ effects.
Nearly two decades ago we conjectured that the last of the easily-accessible fossil fuels would be used in wars to acquire fossil fuels. Airstrip Two is desperate to hang on to its last foothold in Syria and keep stealing oil.
With most components of the City of London Ponzi scheme falling apart, the managers of Airstrip Five are cashing in on the desperation of ‘refugees’ to climb aboard the sinking lifeboat: a surge in immigration to an annual rate around 65,000 now.
That’ll prop up the rapidly sinking housing market Ponzi scheme slightly…well make the situation less dire than a loss of 65,000 people a year. would.
I think most of what is being focused on in American political criminality -basically the same thing, i.e. American politics is criminality (as is New Zealand or British or Candian and EU etc. politics, = criminality)- is something of a side show and that the real action is taking place in and around Ukraine/Syria/Taiwan.
Apparently the biggest explosion in Ukraine history occurred yesterday, as a NATO ammunition depot was hit by the Russians.
Meanwhile, Britian is ramping up its war with Russia to an even higher level, having announced the supply of long-range missiles to Ukraine shortly before they were used by Ukraine to attack Russian territory, i.e. the long-range missiles were sent to Ukraine a while ago., along with toxic DU ammunition.
Britian has managed to take down two Russian helicopters, one Russian bomber and one Russian fighter jet using Ukrainian proxies.
Expect a measured retaliation from Russia some time over the next week or so.
Blackrock is taking over
WW2 was not fought to defeat fascism: it was fought to ensure that British and American fascists continued to dominate the world.
Those who saw the danger of a completely fascistic world emerging after WW2 provided the USSR with information that speeded the development of nuclear weapons in the USSR and created a balance of power. They already had the best rocket technology.
Bristish and American fascists worked tirelessly for four decades to undermine the USSR and intended to take it over and subsequently surround and eliminate communist China.
Putin, with the support of the Russian people, messed up the British-American fascist’s plans.
Please remember your Two Minutes of Hate [of Putin and Russia] sessions. Once a day is mandatory for all ‘good citizens’ but those seeking advancement within the fascistic system should perform Two Minutes of Hate [of Putin and Russia} as frequently as they are able. -Ministry of Truth.
Northern sectors of Airstrip Five are being subjected to the third climate catastrophe in four months, in the form of torrents of rain that flood and wash away infrastructure.
The management of Airstrip Five have nearly succeeded in wrecking the economy, the environment and the financial Ponzi scheme. Collapse is accelerating.
Meanwhile, much of Airstrip Three is on fire. And it’s not even summer there yet.
The coming El Nino, in combination with falling energy availability, catastrophic war policies, and unravelling of fake money systems, will likely push most of the current living arrangements in ‘Oceania’ off the cliff by 2025.
About 1% of the populace of ‘Oceania’ is awake and prepared.
Most of those who ran from truth or tried to conceal it will get wiped out.
The bad news is, ocean surface temperatures and ocean heat content are at a record high as we enter an El Nino episode -noted for generating weather extremes.
And atmospheric CO2 is surging like never before, portending a further surge in temperatures of both land and water, leading to even faster environmental meltdown.

I can protest as much as I like but have no say in the direction everything is being driven by the current crop of psychotic sociopaths ‘in charge’, who are working against my interests and the interest of everyone else.
As far as I am concerned, I am a victim of the machinations of an evil cult that has existed for a thousand years.
This lady gets it:
We are witnessing final battle between good and evil., with the ‘leadership’ of Oceania-NATOstan firmly standing on the side of evil.
The criminals who are in control of ‘the western world’ need to protect and promote their criminal schemes.
the Oceania-NATOstan military-industrial complex will continue to siphon resources and fake money into unwinnable wars.
the Oceania-NATOstan Medical Mafia will continue to promote sickness and costly ‘remedies’.
the Ocenia-NATOstan ‘Net Zero’ scam will be promoted, and precious, rapidly declining resources will be squandered promoting it.
within Oceania-NATOstan the ultimate goal of converting the bulk of the populace into ‘peasants’ who cannot buy or sell or provide for themselves or even think for themselves will be pursued via censorship and lies and tyranny until the entire Oceania-NATOstan system breaks as a direct consequence of ineptitude, fakery and counter-productive policies, or is destroyed by Russia, China, Iran.etc.
In view of the importance of 9th/10th May to Russia, we can expect a lot of action between now and then. And even more after 10th May.
Actual climate science and current data, plus an ominous warning, are presented here.
Around a year from now, we will likely know just how bad effects of the current shift in wind, ocean and heat transfer patterns will be and how devastating their effects will be.
(Not for viewing by planetary meltdown deniers and those who think that proxy-generated data from hundreds of millions of years ago are indicators of current trends).
If AFKTT truly lives his life on a higher plane, we would all benefit if he would exercise some patience by meeting us where we are at, instead of expressing frustration because we are unable or unwilling to join him in the lofty heights.
I suffer the curse of being 10 or 20 years ahead of the crowd. That has been the case for at least the past 40 years.
When we have only 20 years of habitability left because of the actions of the crowd and actions of the corrupt governments that are hostage to banks and corporations which are seeking only short-term gains at the expense of the future –everyone’s future- and the actions of corrupt governments that work incessantly the make everything that matters worse, that is a double curse.
I have decided to go ahead with the report to The Auditor General [of New Zealand] and am in the process of laying it all out, in detail, including the failure of Audit NZ to act on obvious fraud and complete lack of systems or accountability.
I am not in hurry to complete the report because each week that passes results in another ‘wheel’ of the behemoth of corruption and lies falling off. Therefore, my first priority is the completion of my own preparations for the multi-faceted meltdown.
That said, no preparations can be made for the inevitable imposition of martial law and mass murder of civilians that the psychopaths will undoubtedly attempt, as ‘the Titanic’ sinks beneath the waves…arguably within 3 years.
Nor can any preparations be made for the extraordinarily high temperatures likely to prevail once the various positive feedbacks already being triggered kick in ‘big time’. -everything from methane burps as clathrates on sea floors are destbilised to the positive feedback of higher moisture content of the atmosphere driving other positive feedbacks in a self-reinforcing cycle.
It is particularly -‘interesting’ (disturbing), that temperature records are already being broken across the Northern Hemisphere; it’s not even summer yet.in the NH.
Airstrip Five is about to be hammered by yet another overheating-induced storm system, though this one is unlikely to do as much damage as the other two events earlier this year -supposedly ‘one-in-100′-year’ events. Yeah Right! Two in a matter of 3 months and the next on its way.
Denial of reality is a fine thing. That’s why it’s so popular.
I don’t know whether knowing what is happening and knowing why it is happening and being the only person in the country to draw attention to the corruption and lies and scams and Ponzi schemes and rorts and fabrications and incompetence of central government and its agencies, and detailing all that in a report to The Auditor General puts me ‘on a higher plane’ .
I’ll let others decide that.
I just do what I know to be right with the very limited resources I have available, as I have been doing for decades.
And now I am being vindicated on all counts -energy, finance, economy, environment, ecology…as ‘The System’ unravels as a direct consequence of all the lies, fabrication, scams, rorts and deceits and gross incompetence that have characterised governance and commerce in ‘Oceania’ since before I was born.
It’s a loot-and-pollute system founded on violence and fraud, and can only loot and pollute and promote violence and fraud for a limited time before the effects of looting and polluting and violence and fraud begin to hit home, i.e. now.
Life in this sector of the ‘concentration camp’ is somewhat better than in most other sectors, which is why so many ‘refugees’ from ‘Orcland’ are fleeing here…that is the ones who managed to sell their properties before the ‘Orcland’ housing meltdown -house prices being down around 21% from peak in ‘Orcland’, as opposed to being down only a few percent in this region. So far.
We must assume that the value of apartments in ‘Orcland’ will trend towards zero over the next year or two, depending on the rate at which the saboteurs in government decide to kill off the population and demolish the economy. Just announced: the worst balance of payments deficit in all of history. And the base rate interest rate slated to be raised yet again ‘to reduce inflation’. Yeah Right!!
I was thinking earlier today: The [human] carrying capacity of the concrete and asphalt jungle of central ‘Orcland’ will arguably be around 1,000 once all the imports that keep the population fed stop arriving. It will certainly be substantially less than the population that the natural systems supported 200 years ago, before ‘development’ fucked up everything.
So, in that matter, the key question is, when will the imports (from both within Airstrip Five and from overseas) stop arriving?
Oceania going to war with Eastasia (specifically China) will sure be ‘interesting’, since the retail sectors of all the Airstrips will implode about one week later.
‘Nate’, CP, has some very interesting (not ‘interesting’) observations on the nature of people:
Apr. 27, 2023 424.60 ppm
Apr. 27, 2022 419.56 ppm
1 Year Change 5.04 ppm (1.20%)
Why keep linking the lies of a professional liar on TEA?
Everyone with a brain knows the overheating we are witnessing has nothing to do with changes in solar activity but has everything to do with the massive surge (+50%) in the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere!
All that repeated linking of professional lairs lying does is to discredit TAE and drive people away.
If you are in need of a some bizarre, rather sick, Orwellian entertainment, try this reversal-of-truth offering from Sky ‘News’ that the gullible masses are being fed. .
The insane, deceitful fascists who control the US are rushing to provoke the next major war.
