Will European Cities Be Sunk Beneath Rising Seas in 2020?

A secret report, suppressed by US defense chiefs and obtained by The Observer in 2004…..warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a ‘Siberian’ climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world. . . .

Climate change ‘should be elevated beyond a scientific debate to a US national security concern’, say the authors, Peter Schwartz, CIA consultant and former head of planning at Royal Dutch/Shell Group, and Doug Randall of the California-based Global Business Network.

Already, according to Randall and Schwartz, the planet is carrying a higher population than it can sustain. By 2020 ‘catastrophic’ shortages of water and energy supply will become increasingly harder to overcome, plunging the planet into war. . . .

Randall told The Observer that the potential ramifications of rapid climate change would create global chaos. ‘This is depressing stuff,’ he said. ‘It is a national security threat that is unique because there is no enemy to point your guns at and we have no control over the threat.’

Randall added that it was already possibly too late to prevent a disaster happening. ‘We don’t know exactly where we are in the process. It could start tomorrow and we would not know for another five years,’ he said.

But guess what… it’s 2020 and absolutely none of that horse shit has happened.  I’ll wait for Greta Thunberg’s reply!!!!

Mayor Pete…… not so fast!

Trump Compares Pete Buttigieg to MAD Magazine's Alfred E. Neuman

The Democrat Socialist Party’s…along with the media’s usual crew of sycophants… all hail their new darling … South Bend’s Mayor Pete Buttigieg!!!

His last name is a mouthful, but Mayor Pete would rather have his mouth on his “husband” Chasten Glezman Buttigieg!  Chasten Buttigieg, the husband of presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, said his husband’s campaign is about love.

SAD and the News

Once regarded skeptically by the experts, seasonal affective disorder, SAD for short, is now well established. Epidemiological studies estimate that its prevalence in the adult population ranges from 1.4 percent (Florida) to 9.7 percent (New Hampshire).

Home here in Northern Indiana, specifically St. Joseph County… is home to incredibly cloudy weather!

Further, the County Seat… South Bend, Indiana, has twice been voted the 5th most unhappy city in the United States!  This is according to credible Harvard University studies that specialize in the recognition and treatment of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

Now, old sayings come into play ” you can’t do anything about the weather”… but we can, and must, do our best to stem the gushing flow of negative news that flows like a lava stream from all media sources!

It’s nearly impossible to turn on the TV, open up a web browser, or scroll through Twitter without being assaulted with notifications of a new world disaster (or two, or three…).

Thanks to the 24-hour news cycle, alerts of shootings, plane crashes, ISIS beheadings, crime, war and human rights violations are constant — and this incessant news of violence and destruction may be messing with our heads!!!

I’m going to explore the relativity of PTSD in Civilian Life later on this week…. however now,  exposure to graphic violence can cause a process of either sensitization, in which the individuals becomes more sensitive to emotional distress upon viewing the images, or desensitization…. the same symptoms found in Veterans who return from deployment from overseas duty.

Meanwhile, a word to journalists….A more positive form of journalism will not only benefit our well-being; it will engage us in society, and it will help catalyze potential solutions to the problems that we face.
