Are We Already Living in a Post-Apocalyptic World?

I remember watching the film adaptation of Nevil Shute’s epic novel, On The Beach, almost 60 years ago. It starred Gregory Peck, Ava Gardener and Fred Astaire. It scared the daylights out of me. I also listened to the BBC’s radio serialised rendition too. It’s a terrifying tale about the aftermath of a WWIII in which nuclear weapons were used in the northern hemisphere. No side actually won as the whole of humankind ended up perishing ever so agonisingly from the resultant nuclear radiation – except for some “lucky” survivors who ended up huddled together on a beach in Melbourne, Australia, since it was the furthest point from the ever-spreading nuclear radiation.

In the movie, the “authorities” had the foresight to issue everyone with suicide pills to ease and accelerate their inevitable demise, and many of the characters are continually toying whether or not to take the pill in an ever changing situation. Does this sound like your kind of book or movie? Whatever was Nevil Shute thinking? You might also know him from his most famous Australian novel, A Town Like Alice.

Fast forward 55 years and Shute’s futuristic scenario is showing signs of awakening from its hibernation…

Snowstorms and Raging Wildfires in the Same Region on the Same Day: Welcome to Geoengineering!

Snowstorms and Raging Wildfires in the Same Region on the Same Day: Welcome to Geoengineering!

Climate engineers are increasingly desperate to hide the accelerating planetary meltdown with short term chemically nucleated cool-downs. Engineered cool-downs have been a major component of the climate engineering assault for many decades. The chemical cool-downs create the headlines the power structure needs to continue the population’s confusion and division in regard to the true state of the climate. Yellowstone National Park is the latest example of chemically ice nucleated deception. (The photo above was taken in Yellowstone National Park on Monday, September 12, 2016.)

The Yellowstone event is not unique, a chemically nucleated “snowstorm” in South Dakota that occurred on October 4th of 2013 killed up to 100,000 cattle. This event occurred while it was 85 degrees and raining in Chicago and 89 degrees with rain in Kansas City. Other anomalous cool-down chemically nucleated events in South America may have been responsible for the death of up to 200,000 alpacas.

On Monday, September 12th, 2016 (the same day that the snowstorm photo above was taken) the south entrance to Yellowstone park was closed due to an ongoing out of control wildfire — while other parts of Yellowstone Park were experiencing a summer snowstorm.

Another U.S. Territory Grab? Marine Area Twice Size of Texas Now Under Federal Government Control

Another U.S. Territory Grab? Marine Area Twice Size of Texas Now Under Federal Government Control

September 20th, 2016

Is the expanded Papahãnaumokuãkea marine area a new U.S. Military zone?

Another government ‘land grab’ occurred last month when the US Federal Government announced that it had massively expanded the scope of its marine protected area near Hawaii, known as the Papahãnaumokuãkea Marine National Monument. With this top-down presidential proclamation, over half a million (582,578) square miles off the coast of Hawaii will be seized as federal government property. This is an area twice the size of Texas and over 4 times larger than the current size of the marine monument, which was first created by George Bush Jr.

However, as with all government moves, it’s wise to look at this territory grab from all perspectives. Obama pulled this off with a stroke of a pen, without any public process or input.

Is it really about saving the marine wildlife and ecosystem? If so, then why does the US military still have free rein over the area – a military that uses sonar and other weapons, which do more damage to marine areas than commercial fishing?

An Introduction to Permaculture (and Its Symbiotic Relationship with Agorism)

An Introduction to Permaculture (and Its Symbiotic Relationship with Agorism)

One of the focuses of both The Last American Vagabond and Wake Up World has been to not only properly diagnose all the problems facing humanity at this current juncture, which undoubtedly is important, but also to evolve past that by discussing solutions to these problems. In the end, what’s the point of understanding all these problems if the alternative community is not going to step up to the plate and do something about it.

One of those real-life solutions that is incredibly powerful and totally plausible is permaculture. Originally rooting itself in the idea of “permanent agriculture”, the basic premise of permaculture is to build sustainable life systems — whether it’s food and water cultivation, community development, or technological implementation — that work within the natural laws of the universe, as opposed to systems that only benefit humanity, yet harm natural ecological systems.

Monsanto Strikes Again — Tests Confirm Most Vaccines Contain Glyphosate Herbicide

Monsanto Strikes Again — Tests Confirm Most Vaccines Contain Glyphosate Herbicide

Parents have been concerned for quite some time about the various additives and preservatives found in vaccines — such as aluminum, mercury, formaldehyde, MSG, benzethonium chloride and derivatives of human tissue. With autism, developmental delays, food allergies, and neurological and behavioral disorders all reaching staggering levels, parents have an absolute right to question the safety of anything their child is exposed to — including vaccines.

So it may be disconcerting to discover that a new toxic substance has been detected in vaccines: glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup. This is certainly one chemical you want to avoid ingesting, let alone injecting into a child, teenager or adult. Here’s why.

Climate Engineering Contamination: Staying Healthy in a World That Isn’t

Climate Engineering Contamination: Staying Healthy in a World That Isn’t

How does one retain some semblance of health while existing in a world that has become alarmingly toxic and increasingly incompatible to life as a whole?

Though there are countless sources of environmental contamination, the climate engineering fallout is the most pervasive of all. I am not a physician, but I have made an effort to understand and pursue fitness and health since I was about 14 years of age. To some degree I have avoided previously penning this post because it is not my primary area of study. This being said, I have had many requests to outline what my personal health protocol is, so I’ll do exactly that. However I am not giving medical advice, I am not suggesting or directing anyone to practice the health/fitness regime that I follow, I am simply sharing it.

More Than 65 Percent of U.S. Has Unsafe Levels of Toxic Chemicals in Drinking Water

More Than 65 Percent of U.S. Has Unsafe Levels of Toxic Chemicals in Drinking Water

Levels of a widely used class of industrial chemicals linked with liver toxicity, developmental problems, tumour growth and hormonal disruptions exceed federally recommended safety levels in public drinking-water supplies for 33 states in the U.S. according to a new study led by researchers at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS)[1].

The chemical contaminants that infest city water supplies in industrialized nations are abundant, including fluoride, chlorine and many others. What’s worse is that many of these chemicals are added intentionally under faulty and misguided science. To top that off, city officials are increasingly being caught for falsifying documents and submitting fraudulent water tests.

“Overcast” Documentary Exposes What’s Really Behind Airplane Contrails

“Overcast” Documentary Exposes What’s Really Behind Airplane Contrails

As the debate continues to rage about whether or not chemtrails/geoengineering are in fact occurring, the impact of contrails (normal exhaust from aircraft that create a trail of water vapor, ice and soot) on the environment and weather is often overlooked. While the theory of covert chemical spraying operations takes center stage, are we missing a key piece of the puzzle?

Maybe the focus shouldn’t be: Is the military secretly spraying toxic chemicals into the atmosphere? But rather, if contrails from standard air traffic are the real culprit damaging the environment and human health. A concerned filmmaker set out to find the answer.

Affordable, Eco-Friendly and Energy Efficient: How Re-Purposed Plastic Waste is Helping to Solve Humanity’s Housing Crisis

Affordable, Eco-Friendly and Energy Efficient: How Re-Purposed Plastic Waste is Helping to Solve Humanity’s Housing Crisis

“In Latin America, Africa and Asia 40% of people don’t have access to formal housing. In Bogota alone 750 tonnes of plastic is sent to landfill every day. It can take up to 500 years for plastic to biodegrade and 75% of plastic produced globally is either sent to landfill or not formally disposed of and so is left to pollute the environment.” ~ Unilever Sustainable Living

According to EcoWatch: Enough plastic is thrown away each year to circle the earth four times. Ninety-three percent of Americans age six or older test positive for the plastic chemical BPA. Billions of pounds of plastic can be found in our oceans, and all-out bans on plastic bags and bottled water are making little headway. To make matters worse, conventional recycling programs are ineffective at best; only two types of plastic are widely recyclable, and even then, it’s downgraded into other products which cannot be recycled further, eventually ending up in landfill, or worse, in the ocean, where plastic seriously harms wildlife, the ecosystem and our health.

A Saltwater Powered Sports Car? It’s True — and Europe Just Made it Street Legal

Not so long ago, excitement rose to a fevered pitch with the announcement of a budget Tesla car slated to hit the streets in 2017. The cars are gorgeous, seemingly easy on the environment and in a price range the average Joe can afford. But over the last few years, there have been disgruntled murmurings about how electric vehicles aren’t that environmentally sound. Some feel they can actually be worse for the planet than combustion engines, since they often rely on conventional electricity sources to recharge. So while the idea is appealing in theory, the reality isn’t so rosy when we look at their actual impact. The same can be said for other technologies like hydrogen fuel cell and hybrid cars.

There is one advancement, however, that could be a genuine game changer in the realm of eco-friendly cars: saltwater powered vehicles.

The Price We Pay for Fighting Pests With Chemicals and Genetic Engineering

The Price We Pay for Fighting Pests With Chemicals and Genetic Engineering

Guest writer for Wake Up World

As noted in a recent article by The Atlantic,[1] history is rife with pest control experiments gone terribly wrong. Today the stakes are higher than ever, as scientists are increasingly turning to genetic engineering to affect environmental change.

Earlier this year, the Zika virus, which is carried by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, was declared a worldwide public health threat.[2],[3] Besides calling for increased use of chemical sprays against mosquitoes, focus quickly turned to the idea of releasing genetically engineered (GE) mosquitoes to control populations.

The male transgenic mosquitoes, which are released to mate with females in the wild, carry a “suicide” or “self-destruct gene” that gets transferred to the offspring, killing them before they reach breeding maturity.[4] To achieve this, protein fragments from the herpes virus, E. coli bacteria, coral and cabbage looper moth were inserted into the insects. Biotech company Oxitec refers to their GE mosquitoes as a “non-chemical insecticide,” and these controversial creatures are now another step closer to being released on U.S. soil.
