97% of the scientific community agree that human activity is the main cause of Climate Change and that it is happening faster than ever before. The earth is always in a state of change. Geologically and in every other way Earth’s dynamics change over millenia. It never rests. But we, humanity, are very much the leading cause of the rapid change to its climate processes.

Current doomsday clock:
A time of unprecedented danger: It is 90 seconds to midnightThis year, the Science and Security Board of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists moves the hands of the Doomsday Clock forward, largely (though not exclusively) because of the mounting dangers of the war in Ukraine. The Clock now stands at 90 seconds to midnight—the closest to global catastrophe it has ever been.
The geopolitical fissure opened by the invasion of Ukraine has weakened the global will to cooperate while undermining confidence in the durability, or even the feasibility, of broad-based multilateral collaboration.
Magma is very close to the surface. Residents are being evacuated and waiting to see what develops.
Iceland is not new to magma flows and volcanic issues. But this is a case of where population overtakes areas prone to activity.
Pictures show widening breaches along roadways and structures as the area cracks under the rising and moving magma flows. The regional Met Office has declared that the decreasing reports of earthquakes indicates magma has reached very high into the earths crust.
The next week is one of wait and watch to see if an eruption occurs or the event settles. The official stance is ‘probability is imminent.’ Vague but seriously pointed official response. magmatic gas has been detected signifying an eruption is imminent.
For the residents fleeing, it is an apocalyptic event. Yet another massive sign of global change to an otherwise ‘were sleeping’ population.
‘No area without a tunnel shaft, no school or mosque without weapons’: IDF commander from Gaza Strip
Really?! That’s your excuse? How’s about, if I was in Gaza and being oppressed, I’d be picking up all the weapons and making use of them. If that’s the amount of weapons sitting around, why are the Palestinians not taking up arms?
And also, we know about the tunnel bombs that fill the tunnels with expanding foam. This is already known to the world. So why bomb buildings? Why not just tunnel bomb with your magical expanding foam bombs?
THe foundations of what is, and what is not the current situation in the Middle East.
1.0 The Hollocaust is something entirely different. May they be granted peace.
There has been repeated reference to the Hollocaust when discussing the current events around Israel. The hollocaust itself covered a unique period of time with devastating effect on whole communities, a range of ethnicities and countries involved. The Hollocaust started in Germany in the 1930’s and persisted through the second world war. Total deaths were estimated as between 70 and 85 million people. It is unparalleled in human history other than by plague.
To compare issues of today to the hollocaust is dismissive of the staggering loss of life and inhumane treatment of peoples of that time. It is a denial of the sheer massive attrocities. ‘The Hollocaust’ refers to that period of time. Not this period of time. There are some comparitive statistics with modern warfare but they are just that, statitics that in no way should infer connection. Statistics do not tell the whole story. And statistics from one issue do not relate to another regardless of how assimilar they appear. The scales are vastly different here.
Up to two thirds of related deaths were civilians from famine, disease, aerial bombardment, and mass genocide from Persecution of the Jews, Soviet civlians and prisoners, Roma and Sinti, undesirables (criminals, the disabled, and homosexuals, among others). It developed into mass murder and ethnic cleansing across Eastern Europe, with the ultimate goal of eradicating the Jewish, Romani, and Slavic peoples.
