Human extinction by 2026, a controversial/questionable idea, is examined in some detail on the web site: arcticnews.blogspot.com. Within the posted article, a bright red box highlights the hypothesis: “Will Humans Be Extinct By 2026?” Of course, simply posing the question is tantamount to endorsing the conclusion in the affirmative.


Also of recent, but not directly related to the extinction article, scientists moved the infamous Doomsday Clock ahead by 30 seconds closer to midnight because of rising global nationalism and failure to confront both nuclear weapons and climate change, coincidentally as Trump takes over control of the big red button, which is mythological.


By definition, an article dealing with human extinction is highly provocative and touchy and generally dismissed as balderdash. Still, the named article: “Will Humans Be Extinct By 2026?” warrants serious consideration. Here’s why: The Arctic News blog is an amalgam of serious research by topnotch scientists that “speak to truth.” They endorse the distinct possibility of an extinction event that will catch humanity flat-footed. They really believe it is a serious risk. These scientists go against the grain, telling it as they see it, not pulling any punches.


Conversely, it is well known that many climate scientists have been fudging their work; edits make bad seem less bad. Otherwise, those scientists stand to lose grants and funding. This is a fact confirmed by one of the world’s leading climate scientist (mentioned in prior articles). Ipso facto, fudging data is one of the bugaboos about accurate climate science, as scientists intentionally lowball.


Assuredly, submitting the interrogatory ‘Will Humans Be Extinct By 2026?’ suggests the existence of solid evidence. But, in general, people do not, and will not, believe it. After all, how could it be true? Therein lies the major impediment to taking steps to prevent the problems of climate change. In point of fact, there are several good ideas to ameliorate climate change, if pursued in earnest.


For example, a recent NY Times headline: China Aims to Spend at Least $360 Billion on Renewable Energy by 2020 (New York Times, Jan. 5, 2017). All of which brings to mind: What if the United States spent $360 billion on renewables? That would be hugely helpful in worldwide efforts to combat climate change.


But, since the US is diametrically headed the other direction, meaning a pinpoint sharp focus on fossil fuel exploration and production, which emits the CO2 that blankets the atmosphere and brings on severe global warming, what then are the facts behind the purported rendezvous with death by the year 2026?


Is the death threat by 2026 credible? And, what is the probability it happens?


The probability of a human extinction event within 10 years is 50/50, a guess! But still, it is based upon extremely severe levels of planetary stress/damage that are not widely recognized as a threat to society. Without a doubt, worldwide temperatures increases by 18 degree Fahrenheit essentially wipes-out global agriculture.


There are several feedback loops that reinforce one another, each one influencing another such that, like a whirling merry-go-round of horse carvings that spins out of control to hyper speed, features of individual horses become a whirling blur.


If the Doomsday Clock included everything that is wrong with Gaia, like the ocean absorbing up to 90% of planetary heat, which helps considerably to hold down land temps (tricking humans into thinking global warming is not as bad as it really is), but which also has a nasty habit of reversing the heat as a reverse feedback loop into nasty ole runaway global warming, then the Doomsday Clock is only a few seconds from midnight. That’s how dangerously close some scientists believe humanity is to extinction. Hopefully, they are dead wrong.

Global Warming

Global Warming is most probably a hoax perpetrated to legitimize deadly nuclear energy. In any case governments that allegedly believe in global warming are accelerating deforestation.

A massive solar flare is the foremost candidate for extinction. The next Carrington level event will cause electricity grids to collapse worldwide. This will trigger 500 nuclear reactor meltdowns that will end life on Earth.
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
It's amazing how the building ate the plane !!!
Imagine those fragile wings cutting slots in massive steel columns !!!!!
How STUPID can they think the people are to believe that crap ??!!

Planters keep their ears to the sky; they need to know when sunny, when rainy. Their crops and livelihood depend on weather. Which has gotten less predictable these past years, they have complained. The natural response system of plants has also been stressed by abnormally extended periods of drought with rain shearing at wrong times until yields have fallen. It used to be planters could plan their fertilizing seasons to get yields for months at a stretch; now it looks like a yoyo cycle. Food may become a problem and wayward commodity prices can affect economies and thus industries including services. Wars can also precipitate the negative effects.
