Death of America Looms as Catastrophic Events Plunge Nation Towards Ecocide

Today, and as it continues the fight for its very survival on the battlefields of the World, the United States is facing one of the greatest ecological catastrophes in recorded human history.

To the greatest paradox about the catastrophic events ravaging America are that though they have been forewarned about, by the United States Military, the American people themselves are not being allowed to know the full extent of the horrific dangers facing them, but from the secret Pentagon report secretly released to British Intelligence sources, and then leaked to the British press, in 2004 and which stated:

"A secret report, suppressed by US defence chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a 'Siberian' climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world.

The document predicts that abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water and energy supplies. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism, say the few experts privy to its contents. 'Disruption and conflict will be endemic features of life,' concludes the Pentagon analysis. 'Once again, warfare would define human life.'

The report was commissioned by influential Pentagon defence adviser Andrew Marshall, who has held considerable sway on US military thinking over the past three decades. He was the man behind a sweeping recent review aimed at transforming the American military under Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. Climate change 'should be elevated beyond a scientific debate to a US national security concern', say the authors, Peter Schwartz, CIA consultant and former head of planning at Royal Dutch/Shell Group, and Doug Randall of the California-based Global Business Network.

An imminent scenario of catastrophic climate change is 'plausible and would challenge United States national security in ways that should be considered immediately', they conclude. As early as next year widespread flooding by a rise in sea levels will create major upheaval for millions."

The Military Leaders of the United States, and who became enraged when this secret Pentagon report was released, have just this past week secured from their Federal Courts the right to imprison any of their citizens should they gain access to all other reports detailing the grave and imminent dangers their Nation faces, and as we can read as reported by the Los Angeles Times News Service in their article titled "Court backs U.S. on prosecuting 2 who received leak", and which says:

"In a ruling with potentially broad implications, a federal judge said Thursday that the Bush administration could use espionage laws to prosecute private citizens who gain access to national defense information.

The decision appears to be the first in which a court has found that citizens other than government employees can be charged for receiving and disclosing secret government information, experts said.

"It's a momentous ruling with radical implications," said Steven Aftergood, who heads the Project on Government Secrecy for the Federation of American Scientists. "A lot of people who are in the business of gathering information, such as reporters and advocates, are now going to have to grapple with the potential threat of prosecution. The dividing line has always been between leakers, who may be prosecuted, and the recipients of the leak, who have never been. Now that dividing line has been erased."

But to the catastrophic changes occurring in America even their most dreaded laws are appearing unable to keep the information of the growing disasters currently occurring, and as we can see evidenced by these various reports from just this past week alone:

As reported by the Fox News Service in their August 11th article titled "Pacific 'Dead Zone' Said to Exceed Fears", and which says, "Scientists say the oxygen-starved "dead zone" along the Pacific Coast that is causing massive crab and fish die-offs is worse than initially thought. Scientists say weather, not pollution, appears to be the culprit, and no relief is in sight."

As reported by the Associated Press News Service in their August 11th, article titled "Scientists: Aspen trees in West dying", and which says, "Something is killing the quaking aspen trees of the Rocky Mountain West. The slender, white-barked trees that paint the hills gold every autumn are dying, some scientists say, leaving bald patches across the Rockies. Experts are scrambling to figure out what's happening."

As reported by the WCSH Television News Service in their August 12th article titled "Dying Salt Marshes Puzzle New England Scientists", and which says, "Scientists up and down New England's coastline are trying to figure out why so many salt marshes seem to be dying. They began noticing dead patches, known as sudden wetland dieback, near Lieutenant Island in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, on Cape Cod four years ago.

Now ecologists warn that saltwater marshes from Maine to Connecticut are suddenly and inexplicably dying, leaving behind land resembling an eroded desert landscape. Few scientists can explain it or recommend what to do. Even skeptics concede something unusual is happening."

But to the most immediate danger facing the Americans, and as we quote from their Government sources, "60% of the mainland US is now under official drought conditions, with no let up in sight. Especially in the central 'breadbasket" areas, where drought conditions are causing ranchers to sell off herds and crop farmers are watching their fields dry up and burn."

For a Nation that once was considered the ‘Breadbasket to World’, today the United States has issued its first ever warning that its main grain crop, corn, will be in shortage supply in just about a year and half, and as we can read as reported by the Earth Times News Service in their August 12th article titled "Corn shortage predicted by 2008", and which says:

"Analysts in United States have cautioned that unless corn planting is expanded drastically, the country could be facing corn shortage by as early as 2008. Even as the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated the first forecast of the fall harvest of the corn crop to be at 10.98 billion bushels, which is the third biggest harvest ever, the amount of corn consumed by U.S. ethanol manufacturers, food makers and livestock feeders could well lead to the corn stockpiles being depleted within two years."

Not being understood by the American peoples are that as their Nations food supply, and growing capacity, plummets there no longer remains in the World an excess of agricultural production, and which due to this horrific circumstance the beginning, and predicted, mass migrations of starving human beings have begun to flood into both the North American and Northern European Nations in numbers unheard of in all of recorded history.

But to the greater, and World-Wide, catastrophic effects of our Earth heating up the World’s Scientists are shouting today new warnings, and as we can see evidenced by these reports:

As reported by Australia’s ABC News Service in their August 12th article titled "Antarctic snow shock 'just around corner'", and which says, "An Australian scientist says his findings that Antarctic snowfalls have changed little in 50 years, despite global warming, could be evidence the worst is yet to come. A study published yesterday in the Science journal reports snowfall in Antarctica has not increased over the past 50 years.

This contradicts the predictions of most climate models that are based on the assumption that warming air can carry more moisture and produce greater snowfalls at the poles. University of Newcastle palaeoclimatologist Dr Ian Goodwin says the recent evidence supports the idea that there is a lag between global warming and Antarctica's response to it, which is not recognised in climate models.

He says Antarctica and the southern hemisphere are surrounded by large oceans that take a long time to heat and therefore act as a buffer to climate change. "We can be relatively complacent about the effects of climate change in the Southern Hemisphere because we haven't seen dramatic changes," he says.

"But the frightening thing I think is that we are not yet seeing the full impact of global warming in the southern hemisphere, but it's just around the corner."

As reported by the Associated Press News Service in their August 11th article titled "Scientists Warn Greenland Ice Cap Melting At Faster Rate", and which says, "Scientists studying monthly changes in the Earth's gravity between April 2002 and November 2005 have warned that the ice cap covering entire Greenland is melting at a faster pace. Scientists say that the ice cap has been melting at a faster rate and the pace of melting will even accelerate in the future."

As reported by the MSNBC News Service in their August 7th article titled "Swiss mountain crumbles under hot climate", and which says, "Every few minutes or so, there is a surprisingly loud sound as a boulder comes thundering down, sending a cloud of dust into the air. The sharp crackle of smaller stones rolling down the cliff face is almost continuous.

The spectacle is a dramatic reminder that the Alps have been hit hard by warming temperatures, and underscore warnings from scientists that thawing permafrost -- the frozen soil that can glue mountains together -- will cause more havoc in the future.Glaciers in the Alps may have lost up to a tenth of their volume in the hot 2003 summer alone, researchers at Zurich university have said, and the ice now only occupies between half and a third of its volume in 1850."

It must be noted that the above quoted American MSNBC news source provides to us yet another tragic example of how the Military Propagandists in the United States educate their citizens about these catastrophic events, in that this article, describing the horrific destruction of the Swiss Alps, begins with these words, “Sometimes, global warming can help put money in your pocket."

Failing to be told to these American peoples is that the loss of the World’s glaciers, including in Europe, North America, Africa and Asia, also means the loss of water to over half of the World’s population, and which at this past years UN Sponsored World Forum on Water, held in Mexico City and hosted by the former Mexican Director of the Coca Cola Company and present President of Mexico, and backed by the United States, declared that, "Water is not a fundamental human right for the world's people."

One can only wonder how a people once as heroic and generous as these Americans have lowered themselves to the depth of depravity that even the life substance of all human life is to them no longer a Right, but has instead become just another resource to be used to both kill and control both their enemies and friends.
