Drought in the Amazon Basin, Guy McPherson, Halliburton SurvivaBalls, Nature Bats Last, Rapid Decomposition of Boreal Peat, Reduction of Arctic Sea Ice, Release of Ocean Methane Hydrates, Release of Siberian Methane, The Yes Men
Guy McPherson has thrown in the towel…
…we’ve triggered five positive-feedback events, any one of which leads to near-term human extinction. Each of the five has been reported in the refereed journal literature, as a quick search will reveal: reduction of Arctic sea ice, rapid decomposition of boreal peat, release of Siberian methane, release of ocean methane hydrates, and the drought in the Amazon basin.
I suggested we look into the SurvivaBall:
“We’ve done all we could to show these people what sucked about letting greed run our future, but instead of freaking out, they just took our business cards.”
