Proxymetry3 - 3

Fig. 1 Homeland Lost
Yes, we all laugh now.

But way back when, there were plenty of jingos who filled the pick-up truck full of plastic and duct tape, it was no laughing matter.

I mean those who were doing the "policy coup" as General Wesley Clark labelled it, were blasting the call to plastic, call to duct tape, yes, the call of the wild to arms (Fig. 1).

You ain't a true 'merkun ' lessun you got your windows taped.

It is like that in politics now too, where screwballs who think they are saavy, are selling the plastic and selling the duct tape once again.

Where do all these Luddites come from you may be wondering.

Fig. 2 Homeland Really Lost
Well, so are all the scientists who work in the field of Agnotology, those who try to pin down the origin of ignorance.

Anyway, today I generated a graph with the express purpose of rubbing those puppies' noses in it (Fig. 2).

I mean those fools who scared the shit out of Americans, just for the hell of it.

Fig. 3
The warning that is real is the one that informs these dorks of what is really coming their way, and doing so in a manner that nothing these dorks can do will change it.

Fig. 4 "We're Number One"
I don't want to offend these crackpots with political correctness, so I will just say to them "you are batshit crazy" to worry about things not likely to happen.

Start worrying about real dangers that are already flowing toward, around, through, and eventually above you.

The graphs today show the early beta results of the Dredd Blog software model that deals with sea level change (SLC).

The previous fingerprint modules only did historical record fingerprints, but now I have coded for future fingerprinting as well.

In other words, this is done to show possible scenarios of what SLC will look like in the future.

Fig. 6
These particular graphs come from the module that deals only with the top seaports of the world.

By that I mean, those that deal with the most cargo (container ships).

I set the module to do the top ten ports by generating graphs and information about those top ten seaports (The Extinction of Robust Sea Ports, 2).

Several of those top ten are in the same Dredd Blog zone (see Proxymetry3 - 2), and six out of ten of them are in China.

SLC is not limited to any country, continent, or people (Why Sea Level Rise May Be The Greatest Threat To Civilization - 5).

Fig. 7
All of us are being invaded, including the US (Greenland & Antarctica Invade The United States, 2, 3).

So, I am offering those assholes who counselled us to do the plastic duct tape boogie to do the same (On The Origin of Assholes).

The only difference is that this SLC danger is real to the bone, while their song was pure hokeyum (The Common Good - 11).

The next thing I need to do, in terms of advancing the model, is to plug in the IPCC degree of acceleration of SLC, since the module only does the Hansen (2015) degree at this juncture ("10 ft of sea level rise may happen by 2050").

The next post in this series is here, the previous post in this series is here.

  1. "Hurricane Alex's maximum sustained winds were near 85 mph. A hurricane warning was issued for Portugal's mid-Atlantic Azores Islands, where the Civil Protection Service issued a weather red alert, the highest of four warnings that indicates extreme risk, for five of the archipelago's nine islands. It said residents should expect waves up to 18 meters (60 feet) high and wind gusts up to 100 mph."
