“The muffled tongue of Big Ben tolled nine by the clock as the cortege left the palace, but on history's clock it was sunset, and the sun of the old world was setting in a dying blaze of splendor never to be seen again.”

It's been a bizzy week for both Kollapsniks and Cripples,and I have been overwhelmed with work to do in both areas.  I was working on editing a Collapse Cafe video I did with Jason Heppenstalll of 22 Billion Energy Slaves a couple of weeks ago, then George Mobus of Question Everything and I got together to discuss his new Systems Science book along with questions from the Collapse 2019 Survey early in the week as well.  Then I finalized plans for a Jet Setting, Fossil Fuel Burning trip down to Seattle in the Lower 48, set now for departure on July 18th of this week.  As much as I wanted to edit and publish the discussions with Jason & George though, in this case the approaching DEADLINE for the trip to Seattle took precedence over both.  Those vids will be aired of course, but in all likelihood not until after I return from this latest Globe Trotting Adventure at the End of […] Continue Reading…

Business as usual needs a funeral. Responding to existential risk.

Existential has been echoing around the inside of the Environmental/Collapse of Western Industrial Civilization rabbit hole for a while. I expect it will be co-opted into existential reasons to buy consumer products soon enough, so explaining what it means now is good.

Existential can mean outright extinction as in the American Passenger Pigeon or the soon to be extinct Monarch butterfly applied to humans, but existential need not go that far. Large negative consequences which can't be undone which limit human potential for all future generations are existential threats.

Current global warming is at 1 degree C and 1.5 degrees is going to happen if people were to stop using fossil fuels yesterday. Paris' agreements would like everybody to agree at stopping warming at a 2 degrees C target and science says actual results consistent with honouring the Paris agreements will result in 3 degrees C of warming. Four degrees of warming by end of century is […] Continue Reading…

The central idea of this series of posts is that the collapse of our industrial civilization is already underway (has been since the 1970s) and seems very likely to continue until "Business as Usual" (BAU) is no longer capable of supplying us with the necessities of life. This collapse is proceeding in a fashion that is uneven (geographically), unsteady (chronologically) and unequal (socially), and we can expect it to continue in the same irregular way. Accordingly, it should be possible to pick some places and lifestyles that will suffer less severely than others.

I have recommended moving to a small town fairly remote from larger cities in an area likely to suffer less from the worst ravages of climate change and with the local resources necessary to provide at least water, food and energy (mainly firewood) for its inhabitants. Of course, some advance set up […] Continue Reading…

Greetings Diners, K-Dog here,

I had the pleasure of being invited to share a few of my thoughs of Doom by Sam Mitchell.  It is quite an honor to become a member of the kennel club that Sam Mitchel interviews.  Sam finds good people.  After you get your fix here at the Diner you might take a peek and look at who else Sam has interviewed at Collapse Chronicles.  I have and I'm glad I did.  Above is my interview.

Dr. Paul Ehrlich was Sam's first interview.

Saying it was an honor to be interviewed by Sam obviously does not say enough, Paul needs no introduction.

Best wishes, 

K-Dog

Dear Extinction Rebels,

 

First of all, let me salute your fortitude to speak (what you think is) the truth, no matter how frightening.

Let me salute your resolve to do (what you think is) right, no matter how difficult.

Let me salute your courage to risk life, limb and liberty to oppose the omnicidal juggernaut of Industrial Capitalism, no matter how hopeless.

I understand your deep frustrations regarding the abject failure of our so-called leaders to do anything meaningful to address the obscene planetary devastation now spiralling out of control.

I understand you feel that your only remaining option now is mass civil disobedience.

I understand you believe that if only you can reach certain critical numbers within each population, you can drive urgent social change around the world to enact emergency measures to prevent global collapse of our life support systems.

In a world steeped in deceit, mendacity and narcissism, you strive for honesty, integrity and selflessness.

In a world steeped in vulgarity, materialism and avarice you stand for nobility, humanism and generosity

In a world steeped […] Continue Reading…

A cornucopia of threats is on the horizon. Nobody is prepared. Constructive leadership is vacant in the face of multiple global existential emergencies. To say the limits to growth have been reached does not go far enough to say what is now happening on our planet.

Limits to growth have been exceeded by unrestrained global population growth. The world is being rapidly terraformed into a caricature of the emerald and blue jewel the earth has been for people throughout all human history.

The earth needs to keep being a verdant green jewel for human survival but the earth is beginning to run a fever and may get very sick. It has an infection. The fever will cure the infection; population numbers will be reduced to a fraction of current numbers. Or people will become extinct. The earths' fever will rise to a temperature needed to do the job of eliminating the infection before it begins to go down.

If population impact is reduced by changes in human ways of living actual numbers need not be […] Continue Reading…

The Summer Solstice (in the Northern Hemispher where I am writing from, Winter Solstice for you Diners on the other side of the Equator in Oz, South America, Africa, India and a few other dots of land mass down under) has brought with it a healthy Dose of Doom as our path to Industrial Civilization Collapse accelerates. It was tough to select out a few choice morsels for consumption today, I left out many calamitous events that occured this week.  How much Doom can you squeeze into a 20 min Newz Briefing anyhow?

Diners are always concerned with topics relating to the SUN☼, which provides the ENERGY for all life on Earth.  When the Sun☼ finally does burn itself out a few 100 Million years into the future, the species Homo Sap and all the other life forms inhabiting this rock hurtling through space will all finally go EXTINCT, if they don't before then if other calamities overtake them.  SUN☼ as a result is the acronym for our 501c3 non-profit corporation, the Sustaining Universal Needs Foundation.

 

Also as a result, our most recent convocation was held down in Rexburg, Idaho in 2017, where we camped out in a Sun Baked Farmer's Field to observe the Total Eclipse of the Sun☼ as it passed along the Path of Totality.  For me, it was a transformative experience, trancendental and spiritual.  I had never witnessed that 2 minutes of time that comes rarely to any given spot on the earth.  I have travelled extensively through my life, but never was I at […] Continue Reading…

A great conversation with my old friend in Collapse analysis this week, Ugo Bardi.  For those of you newbies unfamiliar with Ugo, he's a professor of Physical Chemistry at the University of Firenza in Italy and one of the authors of the original Limits to Growth study done in the 1970s.  Ugo is a fountain of knowledge on all areas of Collapse, who some in the field see as "overly optimistic" since he is very much a proponent of renewable energy, specifically in the area of solar photovoltaics.  I'm not entirely on the same page as Ugo on this one, but in most areas we are in general […] Continue Reading…

We had our last Celebration and Feast back in February, for the 7th Anniversary of covering the Collapse of Industrial Civilization here on the Doomstead Diner.  We are OVERDUE for another celebration!

The Summer Solstice is a traditional time for celebrations, particularly amongst the pagan cultures of the Middle Ages..  Since if we don't go Extinct we look likely to be living in a pre-Industrial stlye culture, now seems like a good time to be resurrecting and practicing these traditions again.

For this feast, the Main Menu which I am cooking up is a Prix Fixe menu, no choices there but it's FREE! 🙂  That's because you just get to look at it, you don't actually get to EAT it unless you follow the recipes at home and cook it up for yourself.  The recipes though are a great value, no paywall and no ads either!

Since the Solstice falls on a Friday (at least on this side of the Dateline) and we traditionally eat Fish on Fridays here […] Continue Reading…

About Amelia the Amoeba, she is a pedigreed Naegleria Fowleri, a species known for her habit of eating human brains – an interesting case of a Seneca Collapse for the owner of the brain. But Amelia is a good girl and she won't do that to you if you are nice to her.

My second book on the concept of "Seneca Collapse" (or Cliff, or Ruin, or the like) is nearly completed and it should be available from Springer before the end of the year. It is a sequel to my first book, "The Seneca Effect", but this second one is thought as more easily readable "trade" book. It will be sold at a reasonable price, unlike the first one that was supposed to be a specialized, scientific book.

You see above a first attempt at a title and a cover for this book. Of course, the publisher […] Continue Reading…

Last year Inside the Diner, we initiated the "Strafing Run of Mother Nature" discussion thread.  The title came from the steady stream of Hurricanes coming across the Atlantic in the Hurricane Season of 2018, which saw a Cat 5 (Michael) make landfall on the Florida Panhandle and devastate beachfront Tourista destinations like Panama City as well as one of the FSoA military's largest establishments, Tyndall Air Force Base.  Some outcomes from the arsenal of Mother Nature aren't entirely all bad.

C5 On Dogs And Dying

Posted on May 7, 2019 by Dark Green Mountain Survival Research Centre

 

Dino, the older of our two dogs passed this week.

That’s not quite right. We helped him pass. It must always be remembered that this is our final responsibility, in our joint symbiotic relationship of human and canine.

It would generally not be a public topic I would share, but it seems to me that writing about our relationship is part of grieving and saying goodby to one of our life partners.

Dino (seen on the left, back when Harley was still with us and Shogun was a new pup) was 15 years old. He had come close to dying several times, but each time it was looking like That Time, I could tell that he wasn’t ready to go.

It’s not unusual for a blogger to post a memorial post when an animal is gone. They are our family members. But you honor me by coming back, to learn from me, on the subject of Survival and Adaptation in a declining world. […] Continue Reading…

 “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

It's been a while. So shoot me. Since I posted the last "This Week in Doom" article, I have semi-retired, meaning that I live off "Mailbox money" but answer the phone for assignments.

Collapse on the Political level in the Anglo-Amerikan Empire has moved into the land of the surreal.  The developments of the last week have brought into question the very foundation of the Goobermints that supposedly legislate for the populations, although if you are paying close attention you'll know that's not really true.  The folks with the real control are operating behind the scenes, and the Politicians supposedly governing are just marionettes useful for public consumption.

Another Breakfast dish this week from the Cooking  Zone of the Diner, but NOT eggs this time! lol.  today's breakfast potatoes are fixed as Home Fries, which should not be confused with hash browns which are also good, but not prepared the same way.  Home fries were my favorite from my youth, and one of the first things I learned to cook as a breakfast food, along with leftover fried spaghett, which I covered in a previous Cooking Zone episode.

Besides being high in energy content and cheap, potatoes are one of the best veggies to grow yourself in the garden or even on your porch if you live in an urban or suburban environement.  You can use a "Potato Tower" and get a greater density of potatoes per square foot than you would get with more traditional gardening methods.

Besides the advantages of having a high energy content in calories and being able to easily grow them at home, they also grow well in […] Continue Reading…
