“The USSA, just as did the USSR, is about to be undone.”
The Ultimate Meaning Of The BP Gulf Blow Out
By Joseph E Fasciani
Here in Victoria, BC, Canada I follow the Gulf Oil Louisiana Blow-out [GLOB] on our CBC, waiting for the lies to stop and the truth to start, as it must, in spite of The Powers That Be [TPTB] who want it all to go away. But it won’t, not now, and not ever. The USSA, just as did the USSR, is about to be undone. But not by an enemy outside the gates: No, this is self-destruction at its highest and best.
The magnitude of this disaster is inevitably revealed to our human world. And the ultimate truth is that we alone created our destiny, and will continue so for a very long time, even one as fatal as this one.
In spite of all the inane assurances uttered by TPTB –as if giving voice to this immense wounding of the Creation could somehow heal the fatalities so profitably inflicted on an entire planet!– the ultimate truth is that we alone made this insanity.
The fact is we’re now face to face with the Three Laws of Thermodynamics [TLT] in a special sense. Firstly, we’ve met a force of Nature [i.e., the Creation], so much greater than us that it is no more possible for us to control it as for us to control any one of the TLT. I see this oily venting going on as long as it takes to come to equilibrium in its depths, and there’s nothing that mere humans can do. Real life isn’t a Hollywood sci-fi movie where we always triumph.
This is analogous to the massive meteor that induced the world-wide weather shift that hastened the age of the dinosaurs.
So get ready to witness the end of Southern Louisiana, the end of the seafood riches of the Gulf [already massively threatened from fertiliser runoff and huge soil erosion], and God/dess only knows how much coastline to be devastated.
Look: even if we believe and act as if humankind’s influences on weather and climate were something that we can slow, never mind reverse, such pales in comparison to what planet Earth creates on its own. Have we forgotten Krakatoa?
“On 27 August  four enormous explosions took place at 05:30, 06:44, 10:02, and 10:41 local time. The explosions were so violent that they were heard 3,500 km (2,200 mi) away in Perth, Western Australia and the Indian Ocean island of Rodrigues near Mauritius, 4,800 km (3,000 mi) away, where they were thought to be cannonfire from a nearby ship.
“The pressure wave generated by the colossal final explosion radiated from Krakatoa at 1,086 km/h (675 mph). It was so powerful that it shattered the eardrums of sailors on ships in the Sunda Strait…. The pressure wave radiated across the globe and was recorded on barographs all over the world, which continued to register it up to 5 days after the explosion. Barograph recordings show that the shockwave from the final explosion reverberated around the globe 7 times in total. Ash was propelled to a height of 80 km (50 mi).”
The ash clouds circled the planet for three years and caused food crop failures world-wide, from lack of adequate light or heat. It is estimated that hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of humans starved to death. To the best of my knowledge, no one’s estimated the wildlife casualties.
“In the year following the eruption, average global temperatures fell by as much as 1.2 °C (2.2 °F). Weather patterns continued to be chaotic for years, and temperatures did not return to normal until 1888. The eruption injected an unusually large amount of sulfur dioxide (SO2) gas high into the stratosphere which was subsequently transported by high-level winds all over the planet. This led to a global increase in sulfurous acid (H2SO3) concentration in high-level cirrus clouds. The resulting increase in cloud reflectivity (or albedo) would reflect more incoming light from the sun than usual, and cool the entire planet until the suspended sulfur fell to the ground as acid precipitation.
So we’ve already experienced a nuclear Winter, although no one living can recall it. But it’s only history, which we rarely learn from, even in life and death matters. Yet we have hope that the Obamamama can do something…. Well, if not him, then all our techniques and technology surely will — won’t they?
Our poets are better prophets than our scientists, in that they give us the meaning of our place in the Kosmos. Supreme among them is Robinson Jeffers, who for me is the greatest US poet. Here’s what he wrote:
“… I will have no lawyers nor constables
Each man guard his own goods: there will be manslaughter,
But no more wars, no more mass-sacrifice. Nor I’ll have no doctors,
Except old women gathering herbs on the mountain,
Let each have her sack of opium to ease the death-pains.
That would be a good world, free and out-doors.
But the vast hungry spirit of the time
Cries to his chosen that there is nothing good
Except discovery, experiment and experience and discovery….
Science and mathematics
Run parallel to reality, they symbolize it, they squint at it,
They never touch it: consider what an explosion
Would rock the bones of men into little white fragments
and unsky the world
If any mind for a moment touch truth.”
from ‘The Silent Shepherds’
So, are ya ready for the next Big Thing: the end of the USSA as we have known it?
I didn’t think it would be in my lifetime, but hey! It’s coming, and praise God, we can move on to right living and a right end! Just imagine….
