The Military NSA Can't Hack My Car Nor Can AGW Make Us Extinct

Just sayin' ...

Many Dredd Blog System posts, as well as Snowden's whistleblowing, has informed us that the military can hack any electronic device that contains certain types of electronic circuitry.

Your car is composed of many electronic systems that can be fully hacked, and that is the public position of The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

The video at the bottom of this post indicates that any device containing certain electronic circuits can be hacked, will be hacked, and are being hacked (see also the detailed video @ ACLU vs. Clapper, Alexander, Hagel, Holder, and Mueller - 9).
The car is not responding Louise.

The circuits of our brains also can be, will be, and are being hacked (The Matriarch of the Matrix - 3, The Ways of Bernays).

For example, the reality of human extinction has been removed from the brains of deniers by psychopaths who failed to do their long term prognosis once upon a time (The Peak of Sanity - 3, Viva Egypt - 2).

Recently published scientific papers indicate that humans cannot survive an increase of global warming beyond a point that is approaching:
Despite the uncertainty in future climate-change impacts, it is often assumed that humans would be able to adapt to any possible warming. Here we argue that heat stress imposes a robust upper limit to such adaptation. Peak heat stress, quantified by the wet-bulb temperature TW, is surprisingly similar across diverse climates today. TW never exceeds 31 °C. Any exceedence of 35 °C for extended periods should induce hyperthermia in humans and other mammals, as dissipation of metabolic heat becomes impossible. While this never happens now, it would begin to occur with global-mean warming of about 7 °C, calling the habitability of some regions into question. With 11–12 °C warming, such regions would spread to encompass the majority of the human population as currently distributed. Eventual warmings of 12 °C are possible from fossil fuel burning.
Heat stress is already a leading cause of fatalities from natural phenomena. While fatalities appear associated with warm nights, hot days alter the lifestyles and work productivity of those living at low latitudes. Both impacts will clearly worsen in warmer climates, but most believe humans will simply adapt, reasoning that humans already tolerate a very wide range of climates today. But when measured in terms of peak heat stress—including humidity—this turns out to be untrue. We show that even modest global warming could therefore expose large fractions of the population to unprecedented heat stress, and that with severe warming this would become intolerable.
(PNAS, "An adaptability limit ... heat stress", emphasis added). Human extinction is in the cards, if remedial action continues to be avoided, because our physical bodies can't handle too much heat (we are like the planet we live on).

  1. I reposted this with a link over at NBL. Thanks Dredd.


  2. No problem Tom.

    Thanks to you too.
