If you read only one book this year, it should be Roger Hallam's "Common Sense for the 21st Century: Only Nonviolent Rebellion Can Now Stop Climate Breakdown and Social Collapse."

Hallam's lucid and concise book, which echoes Thomas Paine's "Common Sense," says what many of us now know to be true but do not say: If we do not replace the ruling elites soon we are finished as a species. It is a cogent, well-argued case for global rebellion -- the only form of resistance that can save us from ecosystem collapse and human-induced genocide. It correctly analyzes the failure of environmentalist activists in groups such as 350.org to understand and confront global corporate power and thus make a meaningful impact as we barrel toward ecocide. "Common Sense for the 21st Century" is a survival manual for the human species.

"The corrupt system is going to kill us all unless we rise up," Hallam, a co-founder of Extinction Rebellion, bluntly warns.

The activism, protests, lobbying, petitions, appeals to the United Nations and misguided trust in "liberal" politicians such as Barack Obama and Al Gore, along with the work of countless NGO s, have been accompanied by a 60% rise in global carbon dioxide emissions since 1990. The United Nations estimates this will be augmented by a 40% rise in CO2 emissions in the next 10 years. Hallam, who has long been a part of the environmental movement, says of his past activism: "I was wasting my time."

We must reduce carbon emissions by 40% in the next 12 years to have a 50% chance of avoiding catastrophe, according to a report last year by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). But the ruling elites, as expected, ignored the warning or mouthed empty platitudes. CO2 emissions increased by 1.6% in 2017 and by 2.7% in 2018. Carbon dioxide levels went up by 3.5 parts per million (ppm) last year, reaching 415 ppm. We are only a decade away, Hallam warns, from 450 ppm, the level equivalent to a 2-degree Celsius average temperature rise.

"Let's be frank about what 'catastrophe' actually means in this context," Hallam writes. "We are looking here at the slow and agonizing suffering and death of billions of people. A moral analysis might go like this: one recent scientific opinion stated that at 5°C above the pre-industrial mean temperature, we are looking at an ecological system capable of sustaining just one billion people. That means 6-7 billion people will have died within the next generation or two. Even if this figure is wrong by 90%, that means 600 million people face starvation and death in the next 40 years. This is 12 times worse than the death toll (civilians and soldiers) of World War Two and many times the death toll of every genocide known to history. It is 12 times worse than the horror of Nazism and Fascism in the 20th century. This is what our genocidal governments around the world are willingly allowing to happen. The word 'genocide' might seem out of context here. The word is often associated with ethnic cleansing or major atrocities like the Holocaust. However, the Merriam-Webster dictionary definition reads 'the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group.'"

"It is time to grow up and see the world as it is," Hallam writes. "There are some things which are undeniably real, there are some things we cannot change, and one of those is the laws of physics. Ice melts when the temperature rises. Crops die in a drought. Trees burn in forest fires. Because these things are real, we can also be certain about what the future holds. We are now heading into a period of extreme ecological collapse. Whether or not this leads to the extinction of the human species largely depends upon whether revolutionary changes happen within our societies in the next decade. This is not a matter of ideology, but of simple math and physics." Hallam points out that most predictions by climate scientists have turned out to be wildly over-optimistic. "... Recent science shows permafrost melting 90 years earlier than forecast and Himalayan glaciers melting twice as fast as expected," he writes. "Feedbacks and locked-in heating will take us over 2°C even before we factor in additional temperature rises from human-caused emissions over the next 10 years."

"In short, we are fucked -- the only question is by how much and how soon?" Hallam continues, "Do we accept this fate? I suggest we do not. Many self-respecting people who can overcome the human failing to disbelieve what they don't like, now accept what is obvious looking at the natural science. But they have yet to work through the political and social implications."

Hallam understands that even with reformists in power -- and the political mutations caused by neoliberalism have not favored the rise of reformers but instead right-wing demagogues including Donald Trump and Brazil's Jair Bolsonaro who accelerate the ecocide -- any change will be too incremental and too slow to save us from catastrophe.

Extinction Rebellion has the stated aim of bringing down the ruling elites. It organized last month's coordinated series of demonstrations in 60 cities around the globe. Some 1,832 people were arrested in London alone. Additionally, more than 1,000 people were arrested during 11 days of civil disobedience in the streets of London in April. You can see interviews I did with Hallam here, here and here.

"This is not a matter of one's political party preferences," Hallam writes. "It is a matter of basic structural sociology. Institutions, like animal species, have limits to how fast they can change. To get rapid change they have to be replaced with new social systems of policy, practice and culture. It is a terrible and painful realization, but it is time to accept our reality."

It is only by bringing tens of thousands of people onto the streets to disrupt and paralyze the functioning of the state and finance capitalism -- in short, a rebellion -- that we can save ourselves, he writes. He grasps the fact that the protests must be nonviolent and must focus on governments.

"After one or two weeks following this plan, historical records show that a regime is highly likely to collapse or is forced to enact major structural change," he writes. "This is due to well-established dynamics of nonviolent political struggle. The authorities are presented with an impossible dilemma. On the one hand they can allow the daily occupation of city streets to continue. This will only encourage greater participation and undermine their authority. On the other hand, if they opt to repress the protesters, they risk a backfiring effect. This is where more people come onto the street in response to the sacrifices of those the authorities have taken off the street. In situations of intense political drama people forget their fear and decide to stand by those who are sacrificing themselves for the common good."

"The only way out is for negotiations to happen," he writes. "Only then will a structural opportunity open up for the emergency transformation of the economy that we need. Of course, this proposal is not certain to work but is substantially possible. What is certain, however, is that reformist campaigning and lobbying will totally fail as it has for decades. The structural change we now objectively need has to happen too fast for any conventional strategy."

I hope Hallam's book really does not echo Thomas Paines Common Sense. Here is what I said about it in my new book, "911!" :

One of the most influential persons of that early period was the functionary Thomas Paine. His pamphlet, "Common Sense," is credited with having "galvanized" the colonists into fighting the war and in imbuing in them a sense of America's exceptional nature as a new country of unlimited opportunity.

He ought to be credited instead with helping to sow the seeds and to provide a rationalization for what would become America's chronic war habit. There was nothing "common sense" about losing so many lives that could have been avoided, and his parochial and arrogant thinking about America being special would evolve into the idea of America's "manifest destiny," coined by an American columnist, editor, and political appointee in 1845 that has served as an ideology and rationalization frequently used by America's power elite to justify its militaristic imperialism.

Hallam's nonviolent rebellions are bound to fail if they amount to nothing morethan sporadic hit and miss instances even if carried out by 10's of thousands of protestors. Mr. Hedge, if you want to know what will really work if it can be funded read my latest book, "911!"

Regards,

Gary Brumback

In my book, "911!" I proposed a People's "Reign"bow coalition of dozens of disgruntled groups of citizens divided and conquered by the corpocracy's small group of power elites. The coalition would need to decide when enough people had joined the PRC before mounting any campaigns. One benchmark might reflect the fact that when polled 59% of Americans say the government needs "very major reform." A lower benchmark to go by might be the 1989 "Velvet Revolution" of non-violent protests and civil disobedience from roughly 500 thousand citizens in Prague, capital of the renamed Czech Republic, a nation of about 10 million people, resulting in the resignation of the country's Communist Party government. Using the ratio of Czech dissidents to total national population as a guide, suppose over 11 million Americans showed up at the doorsteps of the White House, and Capitol Hill, sent petitions to the power elite of the most harmful industries and agencies, and millions petitioned State Capitols. If this were to happen the power elite would become powerless.

Mr. Hedges:

Here are the very latest scientific findings regarding the allegation of human-induced climate change. In 2014, a group of Chinese researchers found evidence suggesting that the current warm phase of a 500 year cycle could terminate over several decades, ushering in a 250-year cool phase. Then on July 3, 2019, Science Daily announced that n ew evidence suggests that high-energy particles from space known as galactic cosmic rays affect the Earth's climate by increasing cloud cover, causing an "umbrella effect." When galactic cosmic rays increased during the Earth's last geomagnetic reversal transition 780,000 years ago, the umbrella effect of low-cloud cover led to high atmospheric pressure in Siberia, causing the East Asian winter monsoon to become stronger. This is evidence that galactic cosmic rays influence changes in the Earth's climate. "The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has discussed the impact of cloud cover on climate in their evaluations, but this phenomenon has never been considered in climate predictions due to the insufficient physical understanding of it," stated lead investigator, Professor Hyodo. "This study provides an opportunity to rethink the impact of clouds on climate. When galactic cosmic rays increase, so do low clouds, and when cosmic rays decrease clouds do as well, so climate warming may be caused by an opposite-umbrella effect. The umbrella effect caused by galactic cosmic rays is important when thinking about current global warming as well as the warm period of the medieval era."

Mr. Hedges (continued):

Subsequently, on Aug. 11, 2019, it was reported that a new study had found winters in northern China have been warming since 4,000BC. The study found that winds from Arctic Siberia have been growing weaker, the conifer tree line has been retreating north, and there has been a steady rise in biodiversity in a general warming trend that continues today. It appears to have little to do with the increase in greenhouse gases which began with the industrial revolution, according to the researchers. Lead scientist Dr. Wu Jing, from the Key Laboratory of Cenozoic Geology and Environment at the Institute of Geology and Geophysics, part of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said the study had found no evidence of human influence on northern China's warming winters. "Driving forces include the sun, the atmosphere, and its interaction with the ocean," Wu said. "We have detected no evidence of human influence."


Then the web site, Bioengineer.org , on Nov. 6, 2019, cited three papers from the Federal University of Sao Paolo, Brazil which partially affirm the studies from Japan and China. This research insists that "The composition (of marine) sediments carried by rivers from the mainland to the ocean can be used as a basis for calculating variables such as temperature, precipitation, and marine salinity. In the context of ongoing global climate change, the study of the past is fundamental to validating the accuracy of the climate models used to make predictions."

Mr. Hedges (continued):

The world-famous philosopher of science, Karl Popper, insisted that to be a valid scientific theory any hypothesis must be falsifiable. This includes the widely held conjecture of anthropogenic (human-caused) climate change. In short, a single set of scholarly findings that is not explained by the premise of man-made global warming which is attributable to the burning of fossil fuels can falsify this entire body of scientific speculation and this has now occurred. Today, six peer-reviewed scientific papers that were conducted by six separate groups of expert investigators from four different universities in three separate countries and which have all been published in eminent peer-reviewed scholarly journals have found no evidence to support the assertion regarding human-induced climate change. Instead, all six groups independently found that the warming that has happened was almost entirely attributable to galactic cosmic rays that affect the quantity of the Earth's low hanging clouds. These expert investigators call this canopy or blanket the "umbrella effect". The bottom line is that the entire climate change hysteria has now been falsified and is untrue. These six experimental results have shown that the IPCC and its computer simulation models (GCMs) are not valid.

Based on my years of second-hand research I would rank a global meltdown or global freeze-up last and Armageddon first among the several forms of possible doomsday later this century.

We are just witnessing a huge propaganda machine frightening people with global warming. They have an intention to enforce people with convenient rules for the global elite.

I want to believe that Chris Hedges is just not well informed, so here we go.

Notice the well-organized, quick responses from trolls eager to deny the science behind climate change. Similar trolling happens for articles about Russiagate and other topics.

Mr. Smith:

You accuse me of trolling and attempting to deny the science behind climate change but I fear that you may misunderstand the scientific process.

Today, the Main Stream Media trumpets (almost endlessly) that the science regarding climate change is "settled" as evidenced by 97% of climatologists who have reached a "consensus" about anthropogenic (human-induced) global warming. What the press does not stress is that this like-mindedness among these experts is based almost entirely upon computer simulations (GCMs or climate models) and not on any significant experimental data or evidence. Even more distressing is that many (most?) climate advocates see the current scientific findings as fixed and they reject out of hand any actual contrary research results.


Any historian of science will quickly belie this unsound position. A couple of solid examples should suffice to dismiss this misbegotten belief. During the late 19th century the entire scientific community accepted as fact the necessary existence of a "luminiferous ether" through which photons from the Sun traveled to reach the Earth. Then in 1887 Michelson & Morley of Case Western Reserve conducted a single experiment that showed that no such "ether" existed. Thus, all the prior evidence and belief was discarded. [Note: Interestingly, it was M&M's research that set Einstein on his search concerning relativity.] The bottom line is that the 97% "consensus" concerning the "settled" science regarding the existence of a luminiferous ether was wrong.


Another excellent example is "continental drift". During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, virtually every scientific expert insisted that the position of the Earth's continents was fixed. This scientific conclusion was based upon the observationthat although granite existed on the continents, the seafloor seemed to be composed of denser basalt , and the prevailing concept during the first half of the twentieth century was that there were two types of crust, named "sial" (continental type crust) and "sima" (oceanic type crust). Furthermore, it was supposed that a static shell of strata was present under the continents. In 1947, a team of scientists using an array of instruments confirmed the existence of a rise in the central Atlantic Ocean and found that the floor of the seabed beneath the layer of sediments consisted of basalt, not the granite which is the main constituent of continents. They also found that the oceanic crust was much thinner than continental crust. All these new findings raised important and intriguing questions.


Beginning in the 1950s, scientists using magnetic instruments ( magnetometers ) began recognizing odd magnetic "striping" across the ocean floor . A fter the maps with this "zebra pattern" of magnetic stripes were published, the connection between seafloor spreading and these patterns were correctly linked to patterns of geomagnetic reversals. Again, the 97% "consensus" regarding the "settled" science of fixed continents had to be discarded.

Total b.s. The evidence for human-induced climate change is overwhelming, and it's happening faster than conservative predictions. Oil companies have known about the issue for decades but have launched a well-funded effort to deny it.


Scientists can land a rover on Mars. Trust them when they say we are in an ecological crisis.

Mr. Smith:

Thank you for your reply but I must point out that you did not cite a single link that references any climate research that is not based solely on computer simulation models (GCMs). Please submit a single study that is based on experimental scientific evidence. I have listed six new such research studies and all of these show that human-induced (anthropogenic) climate change is a very minor cause or no cause at all of any global warming. Moreover, my six links are the very latest scientific research results while you are, I believe, relying on projections that date all the way back to 1988. Lastly, I feel compelled to again mention two instances in history when 100% scientific consensus was overturned by a single experiment. All scientists insisted that the "ether" existed until Michelson & Morley showed that it did not. Ditto for the idea of "fixed" continents which was 100% accepted by scientists until the 1950s when it was shown to be wrong. In the scientific process, "overwhelming" evidence counts for nothing in the face of contrary findings. Lastly, you have called me a "troll" who is spreading "total BS" and I have never found ad hominem claims to be at all persuasive.

I tend to hear you clearly, sir. Your arguments are far more persuasive than

the "wisdom" so far displayed. As far as I know, I have only lived on this planet a mere 91 years so I find I'm often in error. I have a 70 year old

The fascists always let their corporate benefactors, cut and run They let a corporation destroy an area like fukushima, then they laugh lie and bully for much more fun. The soviets did not abandon chernobyl as TEPCO IS DOING IT IN japan. Tepco is doing a pretend-cleanup , while pulling back from the multiple catastrophe site.. The nuclear fascists leave nuclear catastrophes with mirthful abandon , Like the small nuclear reactors launched into earths orbit that still orbit 30 left up there Nuclear reactors the insane government has put into earth orbit. tu.be/8L1KuTiEvdg Any one of which could poison half the usa and generate an emp that would cripple half of north america. The Nuclear Reactor and nuclear waste in Greenland that is exposed by climate change. They will abandon fukushima, like they abandoned the downwind victims. As fuko lies and abandons Hanford, Santa Susana, and all reactor oversight in murica. We live in a surreal fantasy world. Japan exports the worst radioactive tainted food in History. Obama's Munoz was a nuclear whore. He did not deregulate nuclear reactor supervision. It does matter in spite of what the counterintelligence spooks say. No matter how many rabbit hole lies and false narratives, they generate. Parking 100s of thousands of dirty bombs outside in shabby containers all over america. click here abrogating nuclear treaties. forcing nuclear reactors on the verge of meltdown, to stay opened click here nuclear space race massive subsidization of uranium exploitation. driving up the nuclear proliferation and nuclear war threats by creating a new cold war corruptly expotring nuclear weapon technology and nuclear reactors to saudi arabia Many of the thin skinned, dirty bombs already at san onofre that were made by infamous Holtec. 40, 000 tons of twenty ton dry casks, outside odessa, texas parked on concrete pad. Each of the hundreds of caks is a massive dirty bomb-signed sealed and delivered by fuko and rick perry. Rick and fuko have pushed through a deal for holtec to place 60,000 more tons on them drycasks in New Mexico and west Texas. . If you thought WIPP was bad . Prone to open air fires and explosions in the flimsy, 5-8 inch skinned, and ofted damged casks. 20 tons of the moste radioactive, pyrophoric, decay heat generating radionuclides known to humans. A fire and or explosion, in one of the casks parked so close to hundreds of others, outside, will set off other casks. Any such catastrophe could saturate a large area in the USA. Most areas, of the shithole nuclear usa, are already heavily radionuclide contaminated. There will be be 2 or 3 reactor catastrophies soon as well. The poser counterintelligence operatives will rail on about rabbit holes, while these nuclear criminals rage on. It is all under their watch and encouragement.

The fascists always let their corporate benefactors, cut and run They let a corporation destroy an area like fukushima, then they laugh lie and bully for much more fun. The soviets did not abandon chernobyl as TEPCO IS DOING IT IN japan. Tepco is doing a pretend-cleanup , while pulling back from the multiple catastrophe site.. The nuclear fascists leave nuclear catastrophes with mirthful abandon , Like the small nuclear reactors launched into earths orbit that still orbit 30 left up there Nuclear reactors the insane government has put into earth orbit. tu.be/8L1KuTiEvdg Any one of which could poison half the usa and generate an emp that would cripple half of north america. The Nuclear Reactor and nuclear waste in Greenland that is exposed by climate change. They will abandon fukushima, like they abandoned the downwind victims. As fuko lies and abandons Hanford, Santa Susana, and all reactor oversight in murica. We live in a surreal fantasy world. Japan exports the worst radioactive tainted food in History. Obama's Munoz was a nuclear whore. He did not deregulate nuclear reactor supervision. It does matter in spite of what the counterintelligence spooks say. No matter how many rabbit hole lies and false narratives, they generate. Parking 100s of thousands of dirty bombs outside in shabby containers all over america. click here abrogating nuclear treaties. forcing nuclear reactors on the verge of meltdown, to stay opened click here nuclear space race massive subsidization of uranium exploitation. driving up the nuclear proliferation and nuclear war threats by creating a new cold war corruptly expotring nuclear weapon technology and nuclear reactors to saudi arabia Many of the thin skinned, dirty bombs already at san onofre that were made by infamous Holtec. 40, 000 tons of twenty ton dry casks, outside odessa, texas parked on concrete pad. Each of the hundreds of caks is a massive dirty bomb-signed sealed and delivered by fuko and rick perry. Rick and fuko have pushed through a deal for holtec to place 60,000 more tons on them drycasks in New Mexico and west Texas. . If you thought WIPP was bad . Prone to open air fires and explosions in the flimsy, 5-8 inch skinned, and ofted damged casks. 20 tons of the moste radioactive, pyrophoric, decay heat generating radionuclides known to humans. A fire and or explosion, in one of the casks parked so close to hundreds of others, outside, will set off other casks. Any such catastrophe could saturate a large area in the USA. Most areas, of the shithole nuclear usa, are already heavily radionuclide contaminated. There will be be 2 or 3 reactor catastrophies soon as well. The poser counterintelligence operatives will rail on about rabbit holes, while these nuclear criminals rage on. It is all under their watch and encouragement. It has always been bad but, now it is many times worse. Americas junta and pronunuclear-bonafied hormesis ghouls, certifiy their nuclear insanity and degregulation under fuko the clown. They brag about it. If u think the junta coup in bolivia is bad, just come to radioactive sewerville, murica. Many places, as bad as fukushima in murica.

When climate activists use phrases like "the science is unequivocal", "case closed", "the scientific consensus is overwhelming," I am skeptical. When climate activists and the media use the term "climate change deniers" (a term creepily reminiscent of the pejorative "truthers" and "birthers"), it's good to be skeptical. When they substitute the catch-all phrase "climate change" for "global warming", I get even more skeptical.

I am not a troll. I'm open-minded. Hundreds of independent physicists, oceanographers, atmospheric scientists, and meteorologists have rejected the claim of anthropogenic (man-made) global warming. I do not believe that all or most of these researchers were funded by big evil oil corporations. The science is not settled.

On the contrary, the current flood of global-warming propaganda and climate activism is funded by Big Oil ("Climate and the Money Trail", www.globalresearch.ca/climate-money-trail/5690209). As Prof. Michel Chossudovsky, left-leaning anti-imperialist political scientist, notes: "The unspoken truth is that Big Oil funds the campaign against Big Oil. Sounds contradictory? Climate activists have been lied to. The Climate Movement (New Green Deal) is funded by major charities and corporate foundations including the National Endowment for Democracy, Soros Open Society Foundations, the Rockefeller Brothers Trust, Shell Foundation, BP, Goldman Sachs, among others."

Earth Day 1970 opened with dire predictions of imminent global catastrophe and GLOBAL COOLING. (click here)

"Big Oil funds the campaign against Big Oil." It happens all the time. They fund all of the attacks on Trump, even though he is their best asset ever. In Tump's case, they manipulated Democrats to attack him emotionally with no use of the brains, to increase support of Trump and help him win the next election.

All of the issues comming from media have the intention to divide people and to disable them from seeing where their real problem is. And they are entirely successful in it by producing issues such is global warming, 5G, Chemtrails, flat Earth, and all of the problems people discuss today. Nothing may come to people's attention without the elite.

They create new discussions all the time to prevent you from finding what your problem is. They do not want you to search who rules the western world, how they do it, and how to prevent them from doing it. And that is the reason such discussion is nowhere opened. That is the reason whatever you discuss; nothing can change.
