Catastrophic Climate Collapse

Epictetus, Greek philosopher and former slave, formulated what today is known as the Serenity Prayer. Climate was once considered one of the things that you cannot change, now we know that it can be achieved. It’s just that it will require a billion or so climate activists to get Big Oil (they like to call themselves supermajors because that word sounds friendlier).

Catastrophic Climate Collapse (CCC) is inevitable if fossil-fuel behemoths are not curbed rapidly. Fudging the numbers is as effective as touching up a cancer victim’s x-rays.

On October 29, an enormously unhelpful opinion piece in the Washington Postby their Editorial Board — posited that we need to kick back (my words) and stop worrying, that incremental measures just might happen in the upcoming Sharm El Sheikh Climate Summit. Well, it just might happen that some time in the next ten years I just might win a billion dollars in a lottery. These guys are not climate scientists, but they are speaking in a tone that I would expect to read in the New York Post. Their byline reads Democracy Dies in Darkness. Yes, it does. But faffing climate realities around in circles tells me that there are mushrooms gathering on their basement floors.

Yesterday, I reblogged my article about Wynn Bruce. I am highlighting one of its paragraphs today:

By 1973, the fossil-fuel industry had already known that catastrophic climate change was a scientifically proven fact in the face of inaction; however, the scientists working from within the fossil-fuel juggernauts were silenced before this information could be made available. Positions of power among corporations leading the Fortune 10 would lose profits if truths were told. In 1973, a gradual change could have allowed all involved parties to move carefully and deliberately over several decades to prevent what is now imminent. The 11th hour has passed. History will not judge us kindly for our inaction, each of us needs to accept the responsibility for setting the Earth on fire. Bruce Wynn knew this, you should too. Self-immolators are prophets.

Time is not our friend. Don’t hope for a Hail Mary pass to an end zone because this better approximates a chess match, and we are in the endgame.

Returning to Katja:

I have already taken too much time rearranging the proverbial deck chairs. So please consider becoming a climate activist. And please still remember 1973 for another reason. It is the year of an earlier 9/11: the assassination of Salvador Allende. Meanwhile, Henry Kissinger — the influencer who directed that “intervention” — becomes a centenarian on May 27, 2023.

Thanks for reading.

I Am Still Honoring Wynn Bruce

billziegler1947 is not about a Bill Ziegler who was born in 1947. Not about him; it is a vehicle to provide support for the downtrodden and the dishonored — such as Mother Earth. I am merely the chauffeur. Unfortunately, simultaneous attacks of Crohn’s, psoriasis, and writer’s block have kept Bill on the sidelines. At the moment, he is feverishly writing about Catastrophic Climate Collapse.

This reblog serves as a necessary prologue to the return of billziegler1947, now in the IPU (Intensive Planet Unit).


The 6-3 decision by the Supreme Court conservative majority on February 28, 2022, questioned the legality of limiting carbon emissions to address climate catastrophe. Certainly, Wynn bruce chose self-immolation by fire on Earth Day 2022 at the steps of a conservative-led court to send a critically important message to anyone who would listen. I am listening to Wynn Bruce and am devoting this post to his life-affirming decision. This was a call to all, reminding us that we collectively choose to ignore impending doom’s certainty. This was not a suicide, this was a signal to each of us that inaction condemns this planet to certain extinction. This is not rhetorical excess, the fuse has already been lit.

By 1973, the fossil-fuel industry had already known that catastrophic climate change was a scientifically proven fact in the face of inaction; however, the scientists working from within the fossil-fuel juggernauts were silenced…

Cause of Climate Change

The arrival of a climate change that was predicted to appear around 2050 has shown up several decades early, filling continent-sized areas in Europe, Asia, and North America. The water cycle is another critical system in the climatological tapestry.


Of the 265,000 square miles of the Columbia River drainage (size of France) none of its tributaries flow free to the ocean, trapping all particulate matter as well as co2, methane, and sediments behind its dams, effectively halting the natural processes the earth performs to maintain equilibrium.

This process is reduced over 70%

The Columbia is only one system. Over 70% of the worlds rivers no longer flow free, to irrigate crops and produce hydroelectric power. The natural ecocycles of planet earth are effectively ruined.

And it appears now that hydroelectric power has a greater impact on the worlds carbon cycle than fuel powered generators. (1)

Irrigation traps the particulate matter in a never ending cycle, re-spreading it on the land over and over what should be washed out to sea and cycled.

There are 70,000 large dams worldwide and another 3700 planned. These are huge carbon sinks, whose…

1955 warrant for Carolyn Bryant (Emmett Till’s killer) found. Where is the outrage?

“A Black boy died because of a white supremacist woman’s lie, so she needs to get hard time. I know if a Black person murdered someone back then and was still alive, they’d lock them up no questions asked.”

Ospreyshire's Realm

I know I’m still on hiatus, but this story has me enraged so much that I have to talk about it. I’m sure my audience knows about Emmett Till, right? The Black boy from Chicago who was alleged to have whistled to a white woman in Mississippi and was killed and his death kickstarted the Civil Rights Movement? Afterward, Carolyn Bryant (nee Dunham) ADMITTED SHE WAS LYING and is still alive to this day. Well, guess what? They found a warrant from 1955 for Carolyn’s arrest in a Mississippi court basement. What gross incompetence! They were protecting her this whole time even if some of the people who were alive back then are dead due to their age now. It’s not like she did anything where it could still potentially be of use.

Oh, wait. I’m no legal expert, but I know murder has NO statute of limitations! I’m sorry…
