Title: Web Page Newz
Post by: K-Dog on December 22, 2018, 02:31:15 PM
I've mentioned I'm working on a new web presence before.  I am about as far as the functionality Irv Mills (and others) have with blogspots right now.  The difference being my code is running in my own server on the very computer I'm typing this on.

Irv's site (A common Blogspot look and feel)  Nothing wrong with it if you don't mind the golden handcuffs.

Compare that with a peek at what I'm up to now.  This is a screenshot.  I started writing an 'article' using my internal editor and added some dummy comments.

As you see if I just wanted a blogspot looking site where I write the software and host it myself I can be up and running pretty quick.  That just polishes what I have now.  But I want more than that so this post is just a tease.  Kblog really is up on the dark web and if you knew what to type in as a URL you could actually get there.  You could even leave a comment.  But like I said, not yet.  I have plans.

I'll be correcting the 'Dune' quote above through my Admin Panel but I'll have to create a Frank Herbert user first.  Go ahead and comment on my nascent essay.  Your input could make it into the debut Kblog release!

Whenever that is.  :icon_sunny:

RE

I will but it has to be more functional first.  The first thing to do is get it working like a typical blog and then I will distribute, improve and go mad scientist (integrated polls and stuff) on it. 

Right now you would just click a few times and that would be all since it is not functional enough to use.  When you can be an actual user and write stuff I'll send a URL around to you and the gang.  It actually host it on a computer at home now and the link doesn't work when this computer (the one I'm using is off).  When I send it out I'll put it up on the web at chasingthesquirrel in a directory and eventually it will be my main page.  Go to chasingthesquirrel for today's screenshot on last nights progress now.

Yesterday I made a database article with comments and added navigation between comments.  A field in the database holds a link to a parent comment if any and when the page loads the child links are dynamically generated.  Development for now all happens on this computer and I don't want to deal with uploading and downloading until it settles down more.  Changes day to day right now would look like chaos to anybody but me since sometimes I have things broken.  Later when daily changes are not so apparent other people can makes sense of things.

Looks like the future of dissent. Can't wait to argue. When do we start?

Today I am looking at a page I extracted somewhere which stripped down a WYSIWYG editor to its clean essential details.  It totally rocks and that will be the next thing to add.  I'll have to digress a bit and figure out how it works again.  It is mostly javascript and I've only done a little javascript but I can manage.  Mostly making this page a couple of years ago in fact.  It just means digression here and there to get my learn on.  If you don't follow what I'm talking about that is cool.  Javascript is code that is loaded and runs in your computer and that is different than the code so far which is PHP code which runs at the actual website you connect to; on their server.  I was going to do a standard edit box thing before adding the WYSIWYG editor later but I asked myself why and had no good answer.  Do it now!  A button will create a blank comment and open the editor on it to start.

Once I have the editor in comments can be made and with some rudimentary user control which will be easy to start with since all I'll do is add Diners by hand and provide the log in control and it can be up and running.  The back end (admin side) needs work but none of that has to be very pretty right away and I can get by with the tricks I'm using behind the scenes now.  The admin side will not be neglected because that 's the dashboard to control everything but the WYSIWYG editor and user control are the top priorities since that can get the bones going.  Eventually total world domination will make the dashboard top priority. 

For fun I'll post screenshots of what the editor looks like.

Before double clicking on an editable section:

(http://chasingthesquirrel.com/pics/beforeDC.png)

After double click on editable section:

(http://chasingthesquirrel.com/pics/afterDC.png)

But as I wrote earlier I have to get my learn on and get into the gory javascript details before I can pop it in.  I'm not hacking this together.  It actually is very well designed under the hood. When the editor goes in it will go in the right way.  After it all gets going like a Kunstleresque (all text but with editing) blog some ability to add pics and embeds will be added but writing will stay the focus.  The editor is similar to what we use here on the Diner but mine edits in place instead of opening a whole new page.  More of a WYSIWYG experience.  When the changes submit the edit box disappears and what you see is what you get.

I stripped the editor down to about 400 lines of total code (rough guess) or so when I originally got this test page working.  Does not seem like a lot but a lot goes on in those 400 lines.  Pressing the Red Circle submits the changes which on the test page shown goes nowhere.  Here it loads a 'submitted' page so I know that something actually happened on the web server end of things.  Selecting text and using the buttons on the tool bar changes to and from bold, italic, underline, and stuff.  Graphic files for the buttons don't count in that 400 lines and a third kind of code, CSS presentation has to be all just right for the page to work.  Only the bold underline and italic text control buttons work right now.  Color will be changed.

White supremacist bullshit has been tolerated because Joe Six Pack has not been getting his say. The bullshit has been confused with the voice of Joe Six Pack but it is really only the voice of a small confused minority of all the Joes.

It should not be allowed any more at all. The proof why is what happened in New Zealand. It is hate, twisted hate, with no basis in fact. A fantastical fiction promulgated by men who basically don’t measure up. A fiction soaked up by the sponge of a weak mind. Men who can’t accomplish anything on their own who have to identify with a ’cause’ however deranged their ’cause’ may be.

It is all to avoid the bottomless void of knowing we are nothing except what we make of ourselves. To those who can do something in life or are willing to try, this truth does not have to be so scary. But to the inadequate and those who have wasted more life than they can face up to; it is a terror they will murder to avoid.

What easier way to run from the knowledge that you are shit than to decide other people who are different than you are shit. It is an ideology tailor made for the lazy and mediocre. Lazy because doing unto others as you’d have them do unto you and thus making something of yourself is about as hard as eating a piece of cherry pie. Mediocre because the big dog in the sky hates racists.

I'm quoting myself because I replaced some filler I had at my site with this.  The Martin Luther King stuff.  It came from a Clusterfuck Nation comment I made twenty minutes ago.  Some of you have been there so I brought the change here too since you probably won't be back there for a while.

I have a page up where people can write and erase graffiti.

Everybody is too chickenshit to even say 'Fuck you K-Dog' much less 'Hello from XXX K-Dog'.

Hopefully some Diners can fix that.

So Uncle Sam is third on the list.  So what?  I did not conjure him up, he is always hanging around and he won't care if you say hi.  He would be there with or without me.

Discuss this Interview at the Off the Leash Newz Table inside the Diner



 



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

My own place in the doomosphere will be hosting comments soon.  I have been farting around have done all the stuff to make it work long enough I think I have skill enough to actually get it working.  It is quite an onion.  Commenting on a website is a two way conversation.  Both uploading and downloading have to be done.

So now if you go to the end of my last Monday's rambling you see a 'comment' button.  If you click it a request will be sent to:

http://chasingthesquirrel.com/ (http://chasingthesquirrel.com/)

The request will be for a list of comments which arrive and have to be displayed on screen.  Right now it is fun, at least for me to watch it work while I work out the display kinks.  Reloading the page will close things, but why? Buttons will be added later.

All you see are some dummy comments right now.  Next I link them together so they can be easily navigated in a way I invented myself.

Yes, when it is working it will be better out of the box but there is more to getting a article/comment dialog system working than just getting an edit box up and posting.  My new release is a big part of that but only a part.  For instance I'll have to have registered users.  Another layer of the onion, but you are being a Debbie Downer.  If doing all this was super easy other people would have made better systems long ago.

I'll of course be able to ban people if they are idiots but I'll need to have some simple controls up like being able to turn somebodies text color to match the background color if they piss me off from day one.

It's the adventure and not just the destination of it all that keeps me going.  For a long time I had decided it was to hard but then I decided fuck it.  I'm just going to do it.  Hard or not.  Now my skills are good enough to actually get the job done and I do not think that is a small thing to say.  There is a hell of a lot to know to build a website from scratch.

Practically as soon as I get a log in screen up and working and install the editor I will have comments.  I'll start by making it register by email only while I work on the nuts and bolts of a registration system that sends you the automated link thing.  If I did not break login and registration into separate tasks comments could be a long way off.

Getting 2.0 as far along as it is I'll say is the same effort and time a small book could take.  Not that the two are strictly equivalent of course but the complexity of the task is not small.

What is really good is that I can now write all sorts of goodies by hand.  I have something that presents as well as a big name package does and I have full control over it.  It is lean mean and well organized.  I think I might run against Trump in the next election.  I'll make a voting plugin on the site for the straw election.  Sliding bars showing current vote count.  I can make some nice graphics for a poll that would be the same task essentially.

I have learned enough to be dangerous.

Have any ideas for a poll?

My MAIN requirement is a FILING SYSTEM for the posting, so that you can find Comments not just by the particular blog they were attached to but by the Subject of the pot, as well as additional Tags to search it down by.  SMF is not too bad with this, but it could be much better.  WP commentary is utterly worthless for searching by topic.

Oh, also, once you have created this Ultimate Commentary System (UCS) as you Code Jockey the Internet Horse, we need to be able to migrate the ENTIRE almost 8 year history of Diner Comments from SMF to the new Database.  Take that Hot Dog and suck on it for a while. lol.

And clicking on the big menu which now has 400 links promotes your selection.  The sort in the menu is alphabetic by section to start with but after that popularity sorts the menu.  I use another page that does not 'vote' so I don't bias the results.  Dark Green Mountain visited and found out right away.  Good for him, it's all good.

Actually not that hard.  Down the road from what I want to do but since all the content here is clearly defined text and media a project to 'eat' a thread and post the digested content into my own format would be straightforward but with enough details to work out that it would take a while.

But keep dreaming.  To return to some of this content would be a vulgarity.  Even some of mine.

When I click the Lpgin Button, it tells me to click the Enter Button.  After I click that, I get  a dialogue line to put in my user name.  That does not seem to work

Thanks for the message.  Good input thanks.  I may work on a page two with a pale pastel colored page.  That would be kind of cool.  Add other pages but keep the entry hall dark.

I will have to add a way to reset passwords.  A lot of this stuff you don't realize until you get something working.  My 'other choices button' seemed obvious but when I looked at my page after you missed it I realized how easy it was to pass over. 

If people don't forget their passwords the minimum I have now will at least allow someone to edit and write protect their comments provided they don't cause me to swing the ban hammer.  I have some back end stuff to write to support such admin tasks before I can go prime time.  Truth be told that is what the messaging is all about.  I can write stuff to process the messages that I can reuse as the backbone for comment manipulations which are just enough harder to make it smart to do messages first.

The way my passwords work is you pick a password and code in your browser munges it together with your username.  Code then takes the md5 checksum of the resulting munged text.  That resulting checksum is sent from your browser to my registration functions where it is stored with email, username and real name as the user password. 

The actual password a person picks never leaves their computer and going backwards from an md5 checksum to whatever a person picked is hard enough, but what do I mean by 'munged'?  Only I know that and since I have all the tools to make a trolls' text color match their background color or ban them outright anytime I want I'd need someones password why?

Point is, my passwords are secure.  I can't possibly tell what a person picked and all I will have to do to let a person reset a password is have them to enter an random email code sent only by requesting a reset.  It will all be automatic.  I will be fancy and only let someone have ten minutes to use their email code like everyone else does; but time limits are only psychological feel good stuff.  Time has nothing to do with it.  It is secure or it isn't and my little amateur site will be more secure than most big players. 

Ask yourself next time you are in password hell.  How do they know your new password is almost like the old one and so should not be accepted as valid?  How could they ever know?  I won't be able to know or possibly guess.  If I look  at a stored password all I will see is what looks to be a 128 bit random number.  I won't be able to tell what name/password combination originally made it before it was sent up to the server.

Of course if Uncle Sam is into our shit (and they are) none of what I say matters.  They will do whatever they want.

If you register and are successful a green message will say 'you have been registered'.  So far nobody has registered but K-Dog and some other test dogs I made up and already deleted.  'Fido' was entered and deleted at least ten times while I debugged my code and it should not be possible to get a 'you have been registered' message  without actually entering a new user successfully.

I've mentioned I'm working on a new web presence before.  I am about as far as the functionality Irv Mills (and others) have with blogspots right now.  The difference being my code is running in my own server on the very computer I'm typing this on.

Irv's site (A common Blogspot look and feel)  Nothing wrong with it if you don't mind the golden handcuffs.

http://theeasiestpersontofool.blogspot.com/2018/10/responding-to-collapse-part-3-decling.html (http://theeasiestpersontofool.blogspot.com/2018/10/responding-to-collapse-part-3-decling.html)

Compare that with a peek at what I'm up to now.  This is a screenshot.  I started writing an 'article' using my internal editor and added some dummy comments.

(http://chasingthesquirrel.com/pics/kblog.png)

As you see if I just wanted a blogspot looking site where I write the software and host it myself I can be up and running pretty quick.  That just polishes what I have now.  But I want more than that so this post is just a tease.  Kblog really is up on the dark web and if you knew what to type in as a URL you could actually get there.  You could even leave a comment.  But like I said, not yet.  I have plans.

(https://warfarehistorynetwork.com/wp-content/uploads/The-Nazi-Porsche-Adolf-Hitler-and-the-Volkswagen-Beetle.jpg)

I'll be correcting the 'Dune' quote above through my Admin Panel but I'll have to create a Frank Herbert user first.  Go ahead and comment on my nascent essay.  Your input could make it into the debut Kblog release!

Whenever that is.  :icon_sunny:


That was about a year ago.  A bit more.  Where Am I?

Today I actually have comments working at chasingthesquirrel.com.  I loaded it up this morning and I made a quick test.   I have it switched off until I have an admin panel written so I can manage users.  How hard will that be?

Not very hard because I already wrote it once.  The website I described a year ago I finished but I only loaded it up on a local server.  I never used that software because I wanted to maintain continuity with what I already had at chasingthesquirrel.  My new version reconfigured my server in such a way that my old web page was totally incompatible and could not be mixed in. 

The code I wrote a year ago is a code masterpiece that will be a pleasure to reverse engineer.  That is what I have to do now.  Reverse engineer my own code because I wrote it 400 days ago and can't remember it well enough to just start working on it.  I forgot  my admin password and I had to search the code to find out how I generated passwords because they are hashed.  I always do that. 

I was able to hash a new password and drop it into the MySQL database just like the NSA can do.  I wonder what they would do if they could not access common databases.  Something to think about.

The end result is I have totally hacked into another fully working website (my own) which I have running on my local server.  I already was an admin there of course.  I can redo the admin panel functions I already know work into the code I am writing now.  It is not a cut and paste because I am moving a work of art into more conventional code and it can't just drop in because of the server configuration issue. 

Another turn of the circle.  But what I have left to do won't take a year.

In the meantime.  Visit and experience my rudimentary but still very cool editor.  It is in demo mode because everything it sends to my server right now gets an 'under construction' reply.  Nothing at the server can be changed.

Double click on an article or comment.  I have it set so anything editable will launch my editor with a double click.  Or hit a reply or new comment button.  When I pull out the under construction blocks you will have to sign in to launch the editor.

Unless I enable anonymous comments at the new comment button.  That is what writing the admin panel is about.  I need management functions.

"A great American comeback" Trump claims as he exaggerates his credit for the current state of the economy.  And by the numbers the American economy seems good.

But what numbers really make it look good?  Neither GDP nor Wall Street is a solid measure of the economy.  They are fickle and don't measure stability or how well people are actually doing in their everyday lives.

In only two years the number of Americans without health insurance increased from 10.9 to 13.7%.  Tax cuts have benefited the already rich and corporations.  Mostly the very rich enjoyed cuts and big corporations pay no tax at all.  The median wage of full-time workers is more than 3% below what it was 40 years ago.  Supposedly everyone who wants a job has one.  I know this not to be true.

Real unemployment is not the same thing as the voodoo percentage of reported unemployment. Many people know this is true but not enough do. Unemployment is a complex issue. There are different types. Cyclical, frictional, structural, natural, long-term, real, seasonal, classical, underemployment are nine different types and I doubt these definitions cover all cases.

After the Korean War unemployment was at a percentage point less than it is now. The economy was then in a bubble that burst leading to recession. A health economy will have a natural unemployment rate a percentage point higher than what it is reported at now. Behind Trumps single claim to greatness, a current and quite temporary low unemployment rate, there is much juju.

Consumer culture, the only culture we as Americans in the collective currently know requires optimism as a basic nutrient. Without optimism, consumer culture crashes and it crashes so hard that optimism is essential for life as Americans know it. Living in a reality of happy happy joy joy optimism is mandatory for American consumer culture to function. But unfounded optimism distorts reality, and American optimism is without foundation. Optimism at this point is now fatal.

Nine in ten American tight oil producers have a negative cash flow. The American tight oil industry requires continuing investment to operate and without tax subsidy there will be no profit. Expounding on tax cuts needed to save an industry is a devious way to make the bad look good but Trump and Republicans in general are not above being devious. They love to make people feel good about tax cuts and they get special thrills talking tax cuts to ordinary people who don’t actually benefit from any of the Trump cuts. It is suit schadenfreude.

Consumer culture must consume a diet of optimistic propaganda for food or it fails, but that is not the end of the need for cultural deception. The central banking system, the blood of the global economy and the consumer culture requires continuing growth or it fails.  It fails when debts can’t be paid back because growth slows down. The banking system was constructed so new investment pays off older debt. If that cant’ happen economic our fabric rips apart.

Other economic systems are possible but a new economic system would require change that would be violently opposed by those who benefit from the system as it is now. This makes us locked into our current banking system the way Thelma & Louise were locked into their drive off the Dead Horse Point State Park cliff.

Global growth is now dependent on a U.S. tight oil industry which is unable to produce at a profit.  The industry only rides on a wave of investor confidence and it must fail.  Reality will not be ignored. When the American fracking industry will go tits-up I can’t say.  But it must. The tight oil plays are already mature.

Tight oil fields go through a four stage life cycle. Mature is the third stage and it precedes decline, the final stage. The Permian, Eagle Ford, and Bakken tight oil plays are all in the third stage of life cycle. More wells are drilled but less oil now comes up. In an industry that does not yet make profit that is a very bad thing.

Oil is a raw material. 14% of oil use in 2018 was used to make plastic and fertilizer. Agriculture as we know it requires oil or it can’t function. In America 70.56% of oil is used for transport. We have few ways of getting around which don’t use oil.  Without oil Americans die.

Oil was discovered at the lowest rates on record in the years 2017, 2018 and 2019. Discoveries in these years at one-tenth any 1960's rate. The quality of oil produced degrades and becoming ever more expensive with a falling EROEI. When the American tight oil collapses there will be nothing to save the American economy.  Recession will be here to stay and it won't go away.

Economic crash won’t be avoided despite big brains knowing the truth of our situation for decades. Global greenhouse gas emissions have gone up every year for the last 20 years. Global population continues to grow. Global warming is on track to exceed 1.5 Celsius within ten years. Two degrees will arrive shortly thereafter.  Despite the horror of this doomsday scenario Trump and other leaders of his kind do not care.  Their philosophy is a last man standing philosophy.  Under the circumstances getting the most for themselves and ignoring that others have needs makes sense to them.  Sadly being stuck at this primitive level of social awareness is a common madness of the privileged.  Elitism kills empathy.

American leaders have not led. Ensconced in personal tribal pursuits our leaders squandered our future and we let them do it. To save humanity low-energy self-sufficient local and regional economies would have to replace contemporary culture all over the world before 1.5 degrees Celsius is reached. Failure to do so will mean biosphere collapse. 1.5 degrees stresses the world too much to feed ten billion people which is how many people will have to be fed when we reach 1.5 degrees C of global warming.

Yet nothing will be done. As a case study the Aral Sea could have been saved but established bureaucracy no matter where on Earth it is, cannot deal with future consequences. The Aral sea is now gone.  Around the Aral Sea cotton production introduced in the 1960's had to be maintained and irrigation was applied without limit. Bureaucracy increased pesticide use to maintain existing yield after soil became depleted from lack of crop rotation. The result was a sea half the size of Great Britain became desert with pesticide in the sands limiting life expectancy in the region, which once exceed 60 years, to now be less than 55 years.  The local economy once supported a thriving fishing industry.  Now there are no fish.

Lessons could have been learned from the Aral sea experience but I suspect most people in America do not even know about the Aral Sea. The sea of a thousand islands is gone. That is what it was once called.  Only seas and islands of ignorance remain and they are not limited to the region.

Great piece. I agree with most of it.

How are you getting to 1.5 degree rise in 10 years? What is that prediction based upon?  Because what I've been reading does get us to a 1.5 to 2 degree rise, but it takes the rest of the century.

 In the long run I guess that's not too different. but I'd like to understand why you say that.

Congrats on your site, I will get over there.

The Illusion of Saving the World


https://mahb.stanford.edu/post-author/kirkpatrick-sale/


Last month, as you probably know by now, an extraordinary hoopla event descended on Manhattan in the form of a “Climate Action Summit,” summoned by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, to get the nations of the world finally to take seriously the threat of “global warming” and pledge to actually take serious action to save the world from catastrophe.

The chances of anything useful coming from that are nil.

Oh, yes there will be speeches and promises. Under increasing pressure from alarmed citizens, led by the enlightened youth of the world who know they will be the primary victims of the coming environmental disaster, most national leaders tossed around ideas like carbon taxes, bans on coal mining and nuclear energy, building “retrofitting,” renewable solar fuels, carbon dioxide entrapment, and “net zero” greenhouse gas emissions. Some will be willing to start doing something about one or another, while simultaneously asking for somebody else to pay for the astronomic costs.

But the whole thing is an illusion. The problem is too big, the solutions too imperfect, and the timing, even if everything got fixed in a decade, is too late.

Most scientists believe, with the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, that if the earth’s temperature should increase by 2 degrees Celsius (35.6 degrees Fahrenheit) the rise in sea levels would engulf 280 million people, earthquakes could wipe out 17.6 million, and subsequent droughts and famines would like result in another 231 million, not to mention uncontrolled worldwide migrations, the collapse of many fragile states, and the threat of civil disorder throughout the developed world.

This is why the last global climate gathering, in Paris in 2015, set a goal of reducing global gas emissions enough by 2050 so as to avoid reaching a world temperature of a 1.5 Celsius increase. This would mean reducing emissions by 45 per cent by 2030 and virtually 100 per cent by the target date.

And what is happening? Global gas emissions have increased every year for the last 20 years, with a record set in 2018 (to which the U.S. contributed a record 3.4 per cent), and at this rate, unless miracles occur, we’ll reach 1.5 Celsius by 2030, 2 Celsius shortly thereafter.

Here are two hard truths. In order to reach the Paris Accord goals, according to the Intergovernmental Panel, the world would need to see “rapid and far-reaching” changes in energy systems (immediate end of fossil fuels), land use (agricultural land replanted with trees), city layouts and transportation (to reduce car use), buildings (all retrofitted to renewable energy), vast reduction or elimination of road and air travel, and worldwide checks on human material consumption. In other words, the end of capital civilization as we know it and its replacement by low-energy, pre-industrial, self-sufficient local and regional economies—within a decade.

And two, even those miracles would probably be too late. The ten hottest years on earth, since quasi-global records began to be kept in 1850, have been between 2005 and 2019, and the hottest by far have been the last five years. (July was the hottest month since record-keeping began.) Hot temperatures cause melting ice, at the poles, in Greenland, and at glaciers worldwide, thus reducing reflection of sunlight back into the atmosphere and increasing the amount that warms the surface. Melting permafrost layers release massive amounts of methane gas, a far more potent greenhouse gas than CO2, increasing temperatures worldwide.

The tragedy is that we have already increased temperatures so much, and created conditions so that they will inevitably increase further, that there is nothing that science—or any United Nations mandate of any kind—can do that will reduce temperatures in ten years. Period.

Last year an English scientist named Jem Bendell wrote a paper that shocked many of his fellow scholars by coming out and saying what everyone knew the data pointed to but no one wanted to admit. He had devoted decades to “sustainable development,” he said, but had to conclude that “the whole field of sustainable development research…is based on the view that we can halt climate change and avert catastrophe. By returning to the science, I discovered that view is no longer tenable,” and there was very little prospect that any kind of social change would save the world from an imminent environmental disaster and “the likelihood of near term societal collapse.”

It is still not a generally accepted scientific position, and its implications are so far-reaching that a great many people prefer simply to ignore it; his fellow scientists criticize it as excessively gloomy, which of course it is. But it is hardly surprising that in the last few years there have grown up several organizations that have confronted that truth head-on. For example, something called the Near Term Human Extinction Support Group started a Facebook group in 2013 and has since added a Near Term Human Extinction Evidence Group, both flourishing with new material every day to comfort or discomfort their adherents.

It’s not necessary to side with the NTHers, but I would advise you not to fall into the delusions offered by the Summitists.

From what I am reading I do not think Bendell is a trusted source.

Part of this problem of evaluating the effects of Climate Change  (and most problems these days) is finding any good sources that aren't SUPER biased. Climate change is not the only subject full of biased journalism...but you have to go to the hard science, and then be able to make heads or tails of that......which I can personally attest is not an easy thing. Climate publications are some dense shit.

Everyone is basically taking one of two positions. Some people see certain doom. Others see a hoax. Neither of those positions is supported by data....as best as I can tell. I continue to read and try to educate myself, and I'm not easy to convince of anything....by anybody. But I will always consider facts.

It is true that CO2 keeps going up...which bothered me to no end....... until I realized that THAT has happened....but that the expected temperature rise FAR predicted has so far not manifested.

RCP 8.5 is not reality. Not yet anyway. We are below RCP 4.5

The oceans are still taking on CO2 and ocean temps are still rising. This is troubling, of course. Because we could see a hockey stick chart still form..we could go exponential.........but it isn't happening now.

The things FAR and the early  IPCC scenarios seems to have gotten wrong have to do with the numbers they came up with for what they call "forcing".  Maybe you understand that better than I do. Their methane predictions, too (in spite of melting permafrost, etc)......seem to have been a LOT higher than what is being observed.

And the effects of CO2 in the troposphere might turn out to be a negative feedback loop instead of a positive feedback loop. This is from what Curry wrote..

There is plenty of reason to worry about Climate Change....but widespread sheer panic is an over-reaction. It's gong to play out a little slower than we thought...at least it looks that way to me.

The funny thing about making progress at my own website is that it makes me come to the Diner more.

Having this channel open is nice because I learned something very bad yesterday.

I took Mrs. Dog to Target and tried to log onto chasingthesquirrel.com which is my personal soapbox if I want to rant in the middle of the night while she shopped.

I'm not surprised.  I noticed Homeland Security activity recently (that real time globe I have is more than eye candy) and know I'm being suppressed.  Looking at French news and playing with Google Translate I even know why.  My association with Deep Green Resistance.  Deep Green resistance was interviewed on the equivalent of French NPR In a documentary recently.  The documentary is on my website.  It is one of the K-Dog feature films.  All in French but if you watch the last part before some well known French woman closes things you will see MAX WILBERT (whom Sam Mitchell interviewed three weeks ago) and another person I really should know by name having seen him before describing the violent destruction of Western Industrial Civilization and the inevitability of armed struggle.  I have yet to translate it.

Cut and paste MAX WILBERT into your search box and search my website.  I link to Max's Website.  Max and I are both in Seattle.  I hope we meet.  As far as I know I am only locked out of the American retail network so far.  The process of associating me with drooling nutcase fake news environmental doom porn has only begun.

Clear reasons why the FBI has me in the Doghouse.  Nothing paranoid about it.  I have half a dozen links to deep green environmentalism and WE are not fucking around.  In the French documentary guns are shown.  My Gun Is This Info.

The attack on the Mayagna team happened deep in forest inNicaragua

Armed males have actually assaulted an indigenous neighborhood in Nicaragua, murder a minimum of six people and also kidnapping one more 10, civil liberties teams claim.

Police verified 2 fatalities and also stated they were checking out. The factor for the distinction in the toll is vague.
