Revolution: Ice Age Re-Entry

Atitlan Press

Mitigating the Risks of a 21st Century Climate Switch (to global cooling) and Running Out of Oil and Gas:

There is an urgent need to prepare the world for a 21st century climate switch to a cooling phase, and this current grand solar minimum is a prime time for that switch. The world will face natural climate change-related risks during the current grand solar minimum—risks dismissed or ignored by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) because of its constraining Articles 1 and 2. Solar scientists expert in climate change are warning us of a 21st century global cooling, but the IPCC process has dismissed their science and that of other climate sub-disciplines. Climate-forcing volcanism, Arctic glacier expansion, rapid climate change, and the climate- and volcanic-related catastrophes that occurred during the Little Ice Age are risks that were also dismissed by the IPCC process.

Earth actually entered a new Ice Age 8 and 10.5 millennia ago, in the Arctic and the Antarctic respectively. Since the Holocene Climate Optimum 8,000 years ago, Greenland’s temperature declined by 4.90C to its lowest trough in 1700. The subsequent 1700-2016 trough-to-peak temperature rise is the largest temperature increase in 8,000 years. Glacier ice accumulation also started 5,000 years ago, reaching its peak during the Little Ice Age. However, since the mid-19th century much of this glacier ice melted as the sun entered an extreme grand solar maximum phase, which human activity has exacerbated.

Section 3 of this book provides best-practice strategies for implementing decentralized sustainable development and switching the world’s energy system to renewable energy. These strategies will be required to mitigate the yet unseen climate and resource supply-related risks that loom on the horizon. This book is pitched at the levels of central governments, local governments, and for you at home, and is a must if you want to know the data-driven facts about natural climate change.

About the author

Prior to becoming an author and private researcher, I had a diverse career and education, and purposefully pursued an eclectic series of interests. I qualified as a veterinary surgeon in 1986 (Massey University, New Zealand) and worked in New Zealand and England as a veterinarian, predominantly in small animal practice. In 1997 I completed my Master of Business Administration at the London Business School, and pursued a career in biotechnology and global healthcare investment banking in Europe.

Between 2002 and 2012, as a vaccine innovator and CEO, I raised £23m from European life science investors and the UK government, and built a vaccine company in the UK that was sold in 2015. During this time a synthetic universal influenza-A vaccine, able to immunologically counter all potential pandemic influenza-A strains, was progressed into clinical testing (https://www.linkedin.com/in/carlton-b...). The underlying vaccine technology was developed to counter the threat of mutating viruses transmitted from animals to people (i.e., zoonosis). This background in innovating vaccines for zoonotic mutating viruses provided a doorway to my research on the Arctic climate and solar activity’s influence on viral mutation and pandemic flu outbreaks.

My new career as an author began in 2012 and was enabled by two decades of hobby research in the field of pyramid archeology, resulting in the publication of Discovering Ritual Meditation: Transcendental Healing and Self-Realization (Google Books, https://bit.ly/2PYHxTd) in 2014. I spent three years being a test pilot for the ancient priesthood ritual methods that I discovered during my archeology research. My interests in earth as a complex living system (Mother Earth), enabling the evolution of all life and consciousness, while living “in presence” (in the moment, in silence, aware of breath and all arisings, from the heart) in the intense magnetic fields of Lake Atitlan’s volcanoes (Guatemala), “inspired” my latest book (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/31847855-revolution).

I am interested in the sun’s magnetic and electromagnetic control of earth systems and earth system risks (i.e., climate change, volcanism, earthquakes, disease), and the enablement of human consciousness.

What are the consequences if the people given control over our government have no idea how it works?

"The election happened," remembers Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, then deputy secretary of the Department of Energy. "And then there was radio silence." Across all departments, similar stories were playing out: Trump appointees were few and far between; those that did show up were shockingly uninformed about the functions of their new workplace. Some even threw away the briefing books that had been prepared for them.

Michael Lewis’s brilliant narrative takes us into the engine rooms of a government under attack by its own leaders. In Agriculture the funding of vital programs like food stamps and school lunches is being slashed. The Commerce Department may not have enough staff to conduct the 2020 Census properly. Over at Energy, where international nuclear risk is managed, it’s not clear there will be enough inspectors to track and locate black market uranium before terrorists do.

Willful ignorance plays a role in these looming disasters. If your ambition is to maximize short-term gains without regard to the long-term cost, you are better off not knowing those costs. If you want to preserve your personal immunity to the hard problems, it’s better never to really understand those problems. There is upside to ignorance, and downside to knowledge. Knowledge makes life messier. It makes it a bit more difficult for a person who wishes to shrink the world to a worldview.

If there are dangerous fools in this book, there are also heroes, unsung, of course. They are the linchpins of the system—those public servants whose knowledge, dedication, and proactivity keep the machinery running. Michael Lewis finds them, and he asks them what keeps them up at night.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “The Uninhabitable Earth hits you like a comet, with an overflow of insanely lyrical prose about our pending Armageddon.”—Andrew Solomon, author of The Noonday Demon

It is worse, much worse, than you think. If your anxiety about global warming is dominated by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely scratching the surface of what terrors are possible. In California, wildfires now rage year-round, destroying thousands of homes. Across the US, “500-year” storms pummel communities month after month, and floods displace tens of millions annually.

This is only a preview of the changes to come. And they are coming fast. Without a revolution in how billions of humans conduct their lives, parts of the Earth could become close to uninhabitable, and other parts horrifically inhospitable, as soon as the end of this century.

In his travelogue of our near future, David Wallace-Wells brings into stark relief the climate troubles that await—food shortages, refugee emergencies, and other crises that will reshape the globe. But the world will be remade by warming in more profound ways as well, transforming our politics, our culture, our relationship to technology, and our sense of history. It will be all-encompassing, shaping and distorting nearly every aspect of human life as it is lived today.

Like An Inconvenient Truth and Silent Spring before it, The Uninhabitable Earth is both a meditation on the devastation we have brought upon ourselves and an impassioned call to action. For just as the world was brought to the brink of catastrophe within the span of a lifetime, the responsibility to avoid it now belongs to a single generation.

Praise for The Uninhabitable Earth

“The Uninhabitable Earth is the most terrifying book I have ever read. Its subject is climate change, and its method is scientific, but its mode is Old Testament. The book is a meticulously documented, white-knuckled tour through the cascading catastrophes that will soon engulf our warming planet.”—Farhad Manjoo, The New York Times

“Riveting. . . . Some readers will find Mr. Wallace-Wells’s outline of possible futures alarmist. He is indeed alarmed. You should be, too.”—The Economist
