Mike, once you are subscribed how do you get to the maps he spoke of? I’m not finding a way to get to his site … I just get the video.

In the mid 70’s Bucky Fuller said we had 7 years to turn things around. Anyone here think we did?

Sure, we turned things around.  Unfortunately, we turned ’em 360 degrees instead of 180…

haha, so well said my friend!

Collapsenet.com:

It is in the beta testing phase right now.  (Im one of the testers.)  The programmers (volunteers) have been working on the feedback/bugs from the beta testers since 5/8/10.   One programmer estimated that the site would go online substantially complete by Saturday.

Jenna Orkin announce that the michaelruppert.blogspot.com will move over to the collapsenet tomorrow. 

From what I have seen in testing it, Mike has a great concept going.  Be patient – I think it will be worth waiting for.

Update on Collapsenet.com from Ruppert:

May 10, 2010, 2100 PDT — If I were a part of the old paradigm I’d put spin on it. But I hate the old paradigm. I hate spin. The bottom line is that we thought we had our s–t together for a launch on Wednesday May 12 but we missed a few things. All in all, the 12 people who are part of CollapseNet (seven of them unpaid volunteers) have achieved miracles. But these are tough times for a group of wonderful people from four countries and four states to come together and make something like this happen. Except for me and my attorney Wes Miller (our Chief of Staff), and Chantelle Noelle (our CFO), none of us knew each other or how each other worked, or talked or thought before attempting this. Yet what we’ve put together is something really… useful right now; a rare thing. Some of you are helping us beta test and that input is also making a difference. Thank you. We have developed our own software, purchased services, Incorporated, established accounts and invested many hundreds of hours to make CollapseNet come to life. It will soon. And the next time I give a launch date it will be a good one.

……..

 

This is a crisis for which a solution is difficult to imagine. Individuals, for the most part, are simply not equipped to deal with a culture that has been around for three generations and whose dream machine is ever more sophisticated. Combine that with an increasing disengagement of people as citizens -that is, as people who imagine their future as part of the commons -and you have a formula for social, economic and political disaster.

Optimists may have imagined that the current combination of inconvenient truths would cause people to pause and re-examine their habits. We are at, or past, peak oil -its price will inevitably shoot higher in the next five years and could reach $200 a barrel. Our natural resources are becoming more and more expensive as they are inexorably depleted and the cost of mining them (using carbon based energy) increases. Add to this global climate change and the stupendous debts of governments -on top of individual debt -and you have the conditions for a kind of social Armageddon.

But trying to imagine a social movement or a combined, unified movement confronting all of these crises, is a severe test even for those who have spent their lives organizing for, and analyzing, social change. No one in memory has faced this kind of need for change. Many have imagined and fought for change they wanted -a more equitable world, a more sustainable world, a peaceful world. But this is different. The potential for entering a new dark age is real. And it would not be confined to a few countries. The crisis is global.

The consumer madness indicated by the astronomical personal debt levels suggests an almost wilful denial of reality -spending like mad because somewhere, deep down, we know it’s all going to be over soon and we might as well enjoy it while we can.

Peoplenomics This Week

Lying About ELE’s Part One

Not too many times I can think of in my life when the whole planet has faced multiple ELE’s – extinction level events – but we have several that are coming into view now.  Just for fun, sport, and amusement, I thought it would be a worthy project this weekend to put some of them on the table:  The extinction of fiat money globally, extinction of the Euro, the extinction from the Gulf oil spill, the extinction of the US government due to economic unsustainability…well, you get the picture.  But first up, we need some framing references.

 

A reader who is an engineer of considerable experience says watch this one evolve carefully because it is destined to continue to grow and he shares this long, but worthy explanation why:

    “Heard your mention of the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico this morning, and you (and most everyone else except maybe George Noory) are totally missing the boat on how big and bad of a disaster this is.

    First fact, the original estimate was about 5,000 gallons of oil a day spilling into the ocean. Now they’re saying 200,000 gallons a day. That’s over a million gallons of crude oil a week!

    I’m engineer with 25 years of experience. I’ve worked on some big projects with big machines. Maybe that’s why this mess is so clear to me.

    First, the BP platform was drilling for what they call deep oil. They go out where the ocean is about 5,000 feet deep and drill another 30,000 feet into the crust of the earth. This it right on the edge of what human technology can do. Well, this time they hit a pocket of oil at such high pressure that it burst all of their safety valves all the way up to the drilling rig and then caused the rig to explode and sink. Take a moment to grasp the import of that. The pressure behind this oil is so high that it destroyed the maximum effort of human science to contain it.

    When the rig sank it flipped over and landed on top of the drill hole some 5,000 feet under the ocean.

    Now they’ve got a hole in the ocean floor, 5,000 feet down with a wrecked oil drilling rig sitting on top of is spewing 200,000 barrels of oil a day into the ocean. Take a moment and consider that, will you!

    First they have to get the oil rig off the hole to get at it in order to try to cap it. Do you know the level of effort it will take to move that wrecked oil rig, sitting under 5,000 feet of water? That operation alone would take years and hundreds of millions to accomplish. Then, how do you cap that hole in the muddy ocean floor? There just is no way. No way.

    The only piece of human technology that might address this is a nuclear bomb. I’m not kidding. If they put a nuke down there in the right spot it might seal up the hole. Nothing short of that will work.

    If we can’t cap that hole that oil is going to destroy the oceans of the world. It only takes one quart of motor oil to make 250,000 gallons of ocean water toxic to wildlife. Are you starting to get the magnitude of this?

    We’re so used to our politicians creating false crises to forward their criminal agendas that we aren’t recognizing that we’re staring straight into possibly the greatest disaster mankind will ever see. Imagine what happens if that oil keeps flowing until it destroys all life in the oceans of this planet. Who knows how big of a reservoir of oil is down there.

    Not to mention that the oceans are critical to maintaining the proper oxygen level in the atmosphere for human life.

    We’re humped. Unless God steps in and fixes this. No human can. You can be sure of that.

 

Take a look at this animated explanation of the recent oil rig explosion and ensuing spill off the Gulf Coast.  No doubt, this will become one of the largest environmental disasters in world history, not to mention the havoc it will reek on seafood harvests.

How will our industry respond?

HOPI PROPHECY: IS THE GULF OIL SPILL THE SEVENTH SIGN?

Read the 7th prophecy

“The Fourth World shall end soon, and the Fifth
World will begin. This the elders everywhere know.
The Signs over many years have been fulfilled, and
so few are left.

“This is the First Sign: We are told of the coming of
the white-skinned men, like Pahana, but not living
like Pahana men who took the land that was not
theirs. And men who struck their enemies with
thunder.

“This is the Second Sign: Our lands will see the
coming of spinning wheels filled with voices. In his
youth, my father saw this prophecy come true with
his eyes — the white men bringing their families in
wagons across the prairies.”

“This is the Third Sign: A strange beast like a
buffalo but with great long horns, will overrun the
land in large numbers. These White Feather saw
with his eyes — the coming of the white men’s
cattle.”

“This is the Fourth Sign: The land will be crossed by
snakes of iron.”

“This is the Fifth Sign: The land shall be criss-
crossed by a giant spider’s web.”

“This is the Sixth sign: The land shall be criss-
crossed with rivers of stone that make pictures in
the sun.”

“This is the Seventh Sign: You will hear of the sea
turning black, and many living things dying because
of it.”

“This is the Eight Sign: You will see many youth,
who wear their hair long like my people, come and
join the tribal nations, to learn their ways and
wisdom.

“And this is the Ninth and Last Sign: You will hear
of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the earth,
that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a
blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of my
people will cease.

“These are the Signs that great destruction is
coming. The world shall rock to and fro. The white
man will battle against other people in other lands –
– with those who possessed the first light of wisdom.
There will be many columns of smoke and fire such
as White Feather has seen the white man make in
the deserts not far from here. Only those which
come will cause disease and a great dying.

“Many of my people, understanding the prophecies,
shall be safe. Those who stay and live in the places
of my people also shall be safe. Then there will be
much to rebuild. And soon — very soon afterward —
Pahana will return. He shall bring with him the
dawn of the Fifth World. He shall plant the seeds of
his wisdom in their hearts. Even now the seeds are
being planted. These shall smooth the way to the
Emergence into the Fifth World.

“But White Feather shall not see it. I am old and
dying. You — perhaps will see it. In time, in time…”

IZAKOVIC

 

A massive, unstoppable oil leak could easily lead to the death of the sea in just one or two years. This is one prophecy that may be coming true right before our eyes.  

 

Sadly, there is a device called an Oil well Shutoff Trigger which Brazil and Norway employ on their offshore rigs that might have prevented this ecological travesty.

The cost of the device? $ 500,000.

The Deepwater Horizon had a replacement cost of about $560 million,…

The U.S. considered requiring a remote-controlled shut-off mechanism several
years ago, but drilling companies questioned its cost and effectiveness,
according to the agency overseeing offshore drilling. The agency, the
Interior Department’s Minerals Management Service, says it decided the
remote device wasn’t needed because rigs had other back-up plans to cut off

a well.

There is a major factual difference between the engineer’s account and the animated scenario.  That is whether the oil rig came to rest on top on the well head.  This is the first I’ve heard of that.  Is there any reliable confirmation or refutation?

It’s my understanding that the rig came to rest off to the side of the wellhead.
