Which is the worst: global warming, the next ice age or the death of humanity?
The debate of the dangers and causes of global warming is just about over, except for the efforts of those who invested their careers in the issue and are making a living by promoting the global-warming hype. One of the consequences, of course, is that the taxpayers will continue for years to pay for the costs incurred on account of the global-warming hype.
In the mid-1970s, some of the promoters of the present global-warming hype promoted just as intensely fears about the next ice age. The debate of that issue is now being revived. After all, there is nothing more constant about the climate than the fact that it constantly changes, while we–being human–naturally worry.
Worry is one of the biggest money-makers that can be had. Take, for example, the wealth that can and is being transferred from individuals to the insurance industry. As far as the world-wide promotion of hysteria is concerned, global-warming serves as well as does the next ice age. While the global-warming hype is now almost over, the justified fear of the next ice age will be fuel for the ice-age hysteria that is certain to be revived.
To what extent either issue was or will become a calamity is based on how well we adjust and adapt to it. Humanity is resilient and endured for more than a million years. Civilization is a bit more fragile and came into existence just lately, during the last period of warming after the latest ice age in a long series of cycles of ice ages and warm interglacial periods.
Civilization came into existence because of global warming. It it will have to do a lot of work to be able to adapt to the coming ice age, but adapt it will, provided that humanity has the will to persist. The third item on the list of concerns in this posting is the very real crisis of the self-extinction of humanity.
The details of the third crisis of concern follow after the pointers to the first two articles, farther down. All three crises are real, the first on account of the unnecessary costs of a ludicrous, deliberately-created hysteria, the second on account of the necessity to have to adjust to the reality of something that will certainly happen, and the third because it is quite literally man-made, real and deadly. It can be deadly to fool around with nature, but there is nothing more deadly than humanity’s fooling around with nature’s drive to have humanity procreate.
The following two articles address the issue of the end of the global warming hype and the unavoidable problem of the coming of the next ice age.
May 24, 2008Global Warming: Has Anyone Noticed that its Over?
By Roger F. GayThe end of civilization as we know it, is not at hand. Dire warnings on climate change issued by Al Gore, based on an extreme set of computer predictions, are a dead issue. So is the credibility of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the UN committee that tried to bring credibility to the predictions with claims that its views represent a consensus among scientists on global warming….(Full Story)

April 23, 2008Sorry to ruin the fun, but an ice age cometh
By Phil ChapmanPhil Chapman is a geophysicist and astronautical engineer who lives in San Francisco. He was the first Australian to become a NASA astronaut. He sets the record straight:
….There is also plenty of anecdotal evidence that 2007 was exceptionally cold. It snowed in Baghdad for the first time in centuries, the winter in China was simply terrible and the extent of Antarctic sea ice in the austral winter was the greatest on record since James Cook discovered the place in 1770….
The bleak truth is that, under normal conditions, most of North America and Europe are buried under about 1.5km of ice. This bitterly frigid climate is interrupted occasionally by brief warm interglacials, typically lasting less than 10,000 years.
The interglacial we have enjoyed throughout recorded human history, called the Holocene, began 11,000 years ago, so the ice is overdue. We also know that glaciation can occur quickly: the required decline in global temperature is about 12°C and it can happen in 20 years.
The next descent into an ice age is inevitable but may not happen for another 1000 years. On the other hand, it must be noted that the cooling in 2007 [a global temperature decline of 0.7°C] was even faster than in typical glacial transitions. If it continued for 20 years, the temperature would be 14°C cooler in 2027.
By then, most of the advanced nations would have ceased to exist, vanishing under the ice, and the rest of the world would be faced with a catastrophe beyond imagining….(Full Story)
Those two articles are only some of the first few indicators that the main-stream media is getting ready to admit the end of the global-warming hype it helped create and used to bolster its fortunes with.
Now let’s worry about the real problems that should be of far greater concern to humanity: The coming of the next ice age and the global population crisis.
Wait a minute, you say, a global population crisis? What is that all about? Have we not solved the problem of the population explosion? Did we not successfully implement zero-population growth policies to put a halt to the population explosion, an issue that was in the late 1960s and early 1970s of far greater concern than the global-warming hype has been for the past decade and a half?
Well, under the leadership of the UN, our civilization brought about zero-population growth alright. That program of social engineering was and is so efficient and so exceedingly effective that, the implementation and imposing of UN-sponsored and UN-led population-control policies and methods led not only to zero-population growth but initiated rapidly-escalating depopulation of the world.
Yes, that is correct: depopulation of the world! Those who are and have for some years been regular visitors to the website of Fathers for Life and its blog are, of course, aware of the depopulation crisis and of what was done to make it happen.
For those to whom the depopulation crisis is news, the remainder of this posting shows some links to articles and web pages that explain the nature of the problem and how the rapidly-escalating depopulation of the world got launched and became reality.
The problem: Humanity is a cancer on the face of the Earth (a.k.a. Mother Earth or Gaea)
The Cure and ultimate Goal: Reduction of the world population down to between 300 million to one billion people
The Method: The creation and implementation of the international agenda for the planned destruction of the family
Details pertaining to the Program for the Reduction of the World Population:
- Legalization of voluntary and of even compulsory birth-control methods – the darker the skin colour of the people in the country in which those methods are deemed to be required, the more severe and drastic are the population-control methods that are being brought to bear
- Legalization of abortion, even the implementation of compulsory abortion not only on account of peer pressure but through stealth and by government decree
- Using food as a weapon to force compliance by recalcitrant nations
- Destruction of the institution of the traditional nuclear family, through breaking its weakest link, the natural father. First vilification, then active discrimination of men, then persecution and removal of fathers
- Instilling the fear of forming families and having children. In the developed nations, now close to 30 percent of adults have no children and absolutely no intention to ever have children. The number such intentionally childless adults is steadily increasing.
- The destruction of the economy of the developed nations (For example, the global-warming hype served as the motivator for the implementation of programs for massive transfer of wealth from the developed nations to under-developed and undeveloped nations.)
Thereby it is to be expected that the Caucasian population sector of the world will shrink by about 70 percent over the next four generations. For many of the developed nations the population reduction will be more severe than that. For example, Russia’s population will shrink from 140 million down to 70 million by the year 2045. However, the Caucasian population sector is by no means the only one that will shrink. All Asian countries are and will be similarly affected.
Many who read this will be reluctant to spend enough time to look up the details of the program for reduction of the global population. There is help for them in the form of an excellent DVD called “Demographic Winter” (viewing time about one hour), that summarizes the details of the population-reduction program and its consequences. The DVD also calls for the logical solution to prevent the depopulation of the world: The strengthening of the institution of the traditional nuclear family. The DVD features demographic observations, predictions and statistics presented by some of the most outstanding and foremost sociologists on Earth.
Just yesterday we received a copy of that DVD. The DVD can be borrowed from us (for an interval of one day in each instance) by anyone who lives in Bruderheim or vicinity (call 796-2306). The DVD can also be shown on a large screen to any interested community organizations in Bruderheim and vicinity.
Although it was written before we viewed the DVD, here is a fair summary of the contents of the DVD:
The issues outlined by Jimmy Deuchars are by no means unique to Scotland. Those conditions of the lack of intergenerational links between successive generations (and sometimes even the forced lack of links between siblings) exist for the vast majority of children of divorce and separation. They are an escalating social pandemic that to slightly varying extents affects almost all developed nations and ever-increasing numbers of developing nations, regardless of whether those nations are English-speaking or not.
In 80 percent and more of such cases, it is fathers, paternal grandparents and other relatives who are, along with the children whom they are prevented from seeing or even knowing about, the victims of that pandemic of social destruction.
For a large and steadily-increasing number of grandparents and elderly parents, the reality of that is that our social safety-nets will inevitably collapse within a few years from now (they are beginning to do so now). Welfare for individuals will then be handed back from Father State to individual families and to their extended families from whom the right and duty to that responsibility was increasingly removed during the last century.
Unfortunately, there will then be few younger family members who will have to take on that duty and responsibility. Fewer yet will want to take on or even know or care about the burden to care for their elderly parents and grandparents. Even if they wanted to or still can, individually, they will then no longer exist in numbers sufficient to prevent poverty, squalor and outright starvation for the elderly, of whom more than two-thirds will be women.
Update 2008 05 31: Whether anyone will admit that or not doesn’t affect the reality of it. A rapidly increasing number of the elderly is comprised of formerly expunged fathers and their parents and other family members who have lost for many decades all contact with the children whom they were a long time ago prohibited to have contact with. Already, elderly men commit suicides in absurdly large numbers. The frequency of suicides by elderly men will increase enormously in the years to come, especially so as reductions to and cancellations of welfare programs and pension payments will increasingly be the norm as time goes by. (For US figures, see Ages 65 – 74, Ages 75 – 84, Ages 85+; suicide statistics and trends in other nations are similar).
The DVD Demographic Winter: The decline of the human family addresses those problems and strongly recommends that there is only one feasible remedy that can be used to put a halt to that sort of demographic suicide: the strengthening of the institution of the traditional nuclear family.

As mentioned previously, Demographic Winter strongly recommends a systematic program for strengthening the family, but it seems that there is another recommendation that is just as necessary.
Centrally-planned and -controlled large societies are notoriously inefficient, wasteful and prone to massive corruption to the point of collapsing upon themselves. That is largely due to serious errors being made in setting them up and in running them. Instances of that have happened throughout history from the time of Babylon and Ancient Greece, through the falls of the Roman Empire, German Reich and British Empire, to the collapse of the Empire of the USSR in modern times.
It would be well to prevent history from repeating itself, this time through the doings of the UN and the commercial, industrial and non-governmental global organizations that control and influence it. It is doubtful that the UN and its controllers will be more successful on a global basis than its predecessors were on a more local basis. After all, the fiasco of the global-warming hype as well as that of the crisis of the depopulation of the world are without a doubt UN creations, while the very real threat to humanity posed by nature to all of our civilization, that of the coming ice age, is being ignored by the UN bureaucracy.
The salvation of humanity will not only be in strengthening the traditional nuclear family but also in the decentralization and diversification of the governing of civilization. It seems that, far from being the savior of humanity, the UN will be the cause of its death, death through inaction in addressing the seriously destructive consequences of global social engineering by the UN.
