Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If i've richtig understood the potential of the sun's terrorist attack on the magnetosphere, we're basically talking global martial law, in a field of total chaotic breakdown.

forget about internet and street lights, such an event means water pumps don't pump. 200 core melts are the least of the immediate problems.

i keep coming back to a discussion that gets no props, that this civilization is not prepared to accept the results of its lack of understanding of life and the sustainable connections.

Just so one understands, the backlog on various sized transformers is currently 9 months +/-. That means when grids are destroyed, not much could be replaced before hundreds of millions of people die, because hundreds of millions of poisoned food animals would already be dead because factory farms wouldn't be able to keep them alive. Not to mention the Tankstelle would be closed.

and i probably wouldn't be able to communicate with you even on Open Thread.

Afterwards, in their last moments. most people would have come to the realization that we did something wrong, but couldn't quite get a handle on what.

An unfinished script of mine begins with a lone Mohawk paddling his canoe down the Hudson river, between flooded people-less skyscrapers.

So yeah, i think we should have a diary.
