Turn Around: It’s Now or Never!

Four Paths to Near –


Human Extinction

  1. War: In an age of nuclear weapons, the world is just a few pushed buttons away from escalating out of control total annihilation. The widespread use of Depleted uranium (DU) and the nuclear weapon/power fuel cycle, has already resulted in widespread global radiation contamination.

Guy McPherson, professor emeritus of natural resources and the environment at the University of Arizona, lists three additional paths to near-term human extinction. See complete article at http://transitionvoice.com/2011/11/three-paths-to-near-term-human-extinction/

  1. Climate Change: The earth is getting hotter. Multi-billion dollar weather disasters are occurring at alarming rates. Some scientists say we’ve passed a tipping point for Arctic melting ice.

  2. Environmental Collapse:Earth Systems are rapidly declining. The modern industrial economy has bankrupted nature. In the short term the banksters on Wall St. win, but in the long term we all lose. Industrial society destroys the rain forests, strip-mines the soil, pollutes the water, eats the seed bank, etc.

  3. Nuclear Meltdowns: Safely shuttering a nuclear power plant requires years of careful planning. Far sooner, we’ll complete the ongoing collapse of the industrial economy. That collapse includes the very real risk of the world’s 443 nuclear power plants melting down catastrophically. Ionizing radiation could destroy every terrestrial organism and, every marine and freshwater organism. Fukushima on steroids!

For Survival, Humanity Needs An Immediate
