StarShip Earth Meditative Vigil – October

Posted by te2ataria on October 19, 2019

StarShip Earth Meditative Vigil – October 2019

The Vigil organizers together with their colleagues and friends throughout the world will be holding the next synchronized meditative vigil at 06:00UTC (7.00pm NZDT) on Sunday, October 20, and thereafter on the 20th of each month throughout 2019.

  •  Plug into the awesome cosmic forces that ensure your existence, and broadcast your innermost feelings!

Witness with your mind’s eye the wanton destruction of Starship Earth as being perpetrated by the omniciders, and let the overwhelming feeling of agony, sorrow and pain arising from the enormous loss touch your inner world…

Project onto the terrorists—the super-wealthy class, their puppet governments, all other enablers and family members, collectively the Axis of Evil—the pain and suffering caused by the ongoing ecological holocaust and wanton ecocide, militarism and war economy, poverty and inequality, racism and social exclusion…

  • The Vigil will last for 15 minutes, starting at 06:00UTC (7.00pm NZDT) Sunday October 20.

We invite everyone, wherever they may be, to join us!

  • World’s 24 richest people own as much as the bottom 50 percent, or about 3.9 billion people!

Let’s project the omniciders vanishing into the ether at warp speed!

Stake your claim: Don’t let the omniciders commit you to extinction!

STOP the oncoming acts of omnicide:

Egan asked: “What’s your estimate for Tokyo Olympics carbon footprint?”

Ken replied:

About 67 billion kg (67,000 kt) of GHGs.

Here’s some additional information on how the Tokyo Olympics carbon footprint was calculated:

“Staging the Olympics comes with a huge environmental footprint. Flying an estimated 28,500 athletes and staff to Brazil for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio generated more than 2,000 kilotonnes (kt) of greenhouse gases (GHG) — not to mention the 2,500 kt of GHGs associated with bringing in about half a million spectators.”

Flying the athletes and staff to Japan: 2,000 kilotonnes (kt) of GHGs

Japan’s government expects the “Olympics effect” will bring approximately an extra 10 million visitors to the country in 2020.

10 million visitors carbon footprint: 50,000 kt of GHGs

Period of the Games Friday, 24 July – Sunday, 9 August 2020 (17 days)
Para Olympics: Period of the Games Tuesday, 25 August – Sunday, 6 September 2020 (13 days) Tickets sold Olympics 8.8 million; Paralympics 2.5 million

Tokyo 2020 Olympics: Expecting 920,000 spectators and workers per day (average travel of 100km traveled per person x 30 days x 80g/km of GHGs traveling on a combination of trains, buses, taxis and local flights): 220 kt of GHG [https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-49349566]

Total cost of infrastructure and other spending expected at $25 billion
Amount of GHG for every dollar spent: 584g/$ – carbon footprint: 14,600 kt of

Estimated footprint for Tokyo Olympics: 2,000+50,000+220+14,600= 66,820kt GHGs

    I pray night and day for a dozen major disasters to strike Tokyo and force the Omniciders abandon the Olympic games.

    Is there any special significance attached to the California fires?

    • Damian said

      Marrie,
      What can be said with certainty is that about 80 per cent of the World’s pain is created in the US, especially in the states of California, New York, Texas, Illinois and Ohio.
      California is home to life-sucking companies like Alphabet, Amgen, Apple, Chevron, Cisco, Disney, Ebay, Facebook, Gilead Sciences, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, HP, Intel, Mattle, McKesson, Oracle, PayPal, PG&E, Qualcomm, Teledyne Technologies, Visa, Wells Fargo (and dozens more banks), among others.

      If the shit starts hitting the fan in two of the remaining four states, then we can start talking about “special significance!”

    World scientists declare climate emergency, establish global indicators for effective action
    https://today.oregonstate.edu/news/world-scientists-declare-climate-emergency-establish-global-indicators-effective-action

    CORVALLIS, Ore. – A global coalition of scientists led by William J. Ripple and Christopher Wolf of Oregon State University says “untold human suffering” is unavoidable without deep and lasting shifts in human activities that contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and other factors related to climate change.

    “Despite 40 years of major global negotiations, we have continued to conduct business as usual and have failed to address this crisis,” said Ripple, distinguished professor of ecology in the OSU College of Forestry. “Climate change has arrived and is accelerating faster than many scientists expected.”

    In a paper published today in BioScience, the authors, along with more than 11,000 scientist signatories from 153 countries, declare a climate emergency, present graphics showing trends as vital signs against which to measure progress, and provide a set of effective mitigating actions.

    The scientists point to six areas in which humanity should take immediate steps to slow down the effects of a warming planet:

    1. Energy. Implement massive conservation practices; replace fossil fuels with low-carbon renewables; leave remaining stocks of fossil fuels in the ground; eliminate subsidies to fossil fuel companies; and impose carbon fees that are high enough to restrain the use of fossil fuels.
    2. Short-lived pollutants. Swiftly cut emissions of methane, soot, hydrofluorocarbons and other short-lived climate pollutants; doing so has the potential to reduce the short-term warming trend by more than 50% over the next few decades.
    3. Nature. Restore and protect ecosystems such as forests, grasslands, peatlands, wetlands and mangroves, and allow a larger share of these ecosystems to reach their ecological potential for sequestering atmospheric carbon dioxide, a key greenhouse gas.
    4. Food. Eat more plants and consume fewer animal products. The dietary shift would significantly reduce emissions of methane and other greenhouse gases and free up agricultural lands for growing human food rather than livestock feed. Reducing food waste is also critical – the scientists say at least one-third of all food produced ends up as garbage.
    5. Economy. Convert the economy to one that is carbon free to address human dependence on the biosphere and shift goals away from the growth of gross domestic product and the pursuit of affluence. Curb exploitation of ecosystems to maintain long-term biosphere sustainability.
    6. Population. Stabilize a global human population that is increasing by more than 200,000 people a day, using approaches that ensure social and economic justice.

    “Mitigating and adapting to climate change while honoring the diversity of humans entails major transformations in the ways our global society functions and interacts with natural ecosystems,” the paper states. “We are encouraged by a recent surge of concern. Governmental bodies are making climate emergency declarations. Schoolchildren are striking. Ecocide lawsuits are proceeding in the courts. Grassroots citizen movements are demanding change, and many countries, states and provinces, cities, and businesses are responding. As an Alliance of World Scientists, we stand ready to assist decision makers in a just transition to a sustainable and equitable future.”

    The graphs of vital signs in the paper illustrate several key climate-change indicators and factors over the last 40 years, since scientists from 50 nations met at the First World Climate Conference in Geneva in 1979.

    In recent decades, multiple other global assemblies have agreed that urgent action is essential, but greenhouse gas emissions are still rapidly rising. Other ominous signs from human activities include sustained increases in per-capita meat production, global tree cover loss and number of airline passengers.

    There are also some encouraging signs – including decreases in global birth rates and decelerated forest loss in the Brazilian Amazon, and increases in wind and solar power – but even those measures are tinged with worry. The decline in birth rates has slowed over the last 20 years, for example, and the pace of Amazon forest loss appears to be starting to increase again.

    “Global surface temperature, ocean heat content, extreme weather and its costs, sea level, ocean acidity, and area burned in the United States are all rising,” Ripple said. “Globally, ice is rapidly disappearing as demonstrated by decreases in minimum summer Arctic sea ice, Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, and glacier thickness. All of these rapid changes highlight the urgent need for action.”

    Joining Ripple and Wolf, a postdoctoral scholar in the OSU College of Forestry, as authors are Thomas M. Newsome of the University of Sydney, Phoebe Barnard of the Biological Conservation Institute and the University of Cape Town, and William R. Moomaw of Tufts University.

    More information on the project, the list of signatories and the Alliance of World Scientists is available here.

    Two years ago, Ripple lead an international team of researchers in producing an article published in BioScience titled “World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice” that was signed by more than 15,000 scientists in 184 countries.

    The warning came with steps that can be taken to reverse negative trends, but the authors suggested it may take a groundswell of public pressure to convince political leaders to take corrective actions. Since 1992, when more than 1,700 scientists — including a majority of the living Nobel laureates in the sciences — signed a “World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity” published by the Union of Concerned Scientists, global trends have worsened.

    Zero Carbon Bill passes with near-unanimous support, setting climate change targets into law
    “… zero net carbon emissions by 2050 and a reduction of between 24 and 47 per cent of methane emissions by 2050. These targets are intended to keep global warming to within 1.5C by 2050.”

    Hip Hip Hooray! x 3
    SERIOUSLY, if natural disasters haven’t decimated NZ population by 2050, I’ll personally start up go-fund-me campaigns for everyone in the country to buy a one-bed garage in Auckland!
