Before I describe the latest things I've discovered and learned since the last post, I want to add some more clarity to what I meant.
-I was obviously challenging the idea that God never makes mistakes if he exists or that nature never does.
The only people that go there are humorists as far as I know.
But you have to think about this when you realize that faulty thinking can't heal itself, so if you want to blame somebody or something, you need to blame whatever created the faulty mind.
I have discovered that contemplating this defuses anger, and that's why I talked about it.
Another scary announcement occurred Thursday, March 4th:
Methane Releases From Arctic Shelf May Be Much Larger and Faster Than Anticipated
This is big and probably very bad.
It provides more strong evidence that the positive feedbacks that will cause global warming to accelerate have already started.
Here is an excellent place to read what is being said about this annoncement by experts and others:
Science stunner: Vast East Siberian Arctic Shelf methane stores destabilizing and venting
I am asking myself this question for the first time:
What will persons who are setting up homesteads based on past agricultural knowledge do as the growth zones shift northward every year?
As soon as they get skilled at raising corn or wheat, the zone where it will grow no longer will include their farms.
Finally, I just discovered what appears to be a very good website that is almost four years ahead of me in focusing on psychological coping:
Peak Oil Blues Blog -Exploring Emotional Reactions to Peak Oil, Climate Change & Economic Collapse
There is a lot to read here, and I've just begun.
In 2005, just after Katrina triggered in me the release of many years worth of rage I searched and searched on the internet to see if anyone was blogging about this "Ecopsychology" or Gaiaphobia, and found nothing.
It appears that I was looking just a few months too early.
