|Fig. 1 Escapism in a nutshell.|
What happens when there is a mass murder, caused by polluting a planet, and the "detectives" chosen to describe and stop the problem are scientists?
"This is the Anthropocene Epoch."
Or, the "detectives" chosen to describe and stop the problem are economists?
"A carbon tax is needed."
Or, the "detectives" chosen to describe and stop the problem are elected politicians whose campaigns are supported by the criminals involved in the mass murder?
"What pollution? ... Oh ... well ... the other party did it!"
Or, the "detectives" chosen to describe and stop the problem are members of a just judicial system?
"The perpetrators shall be arrested, indicted, tried, and punished according to the degree of their criminal guilt" (see e.g.The Greatest Murder Mystery in Human History).
I think it is safe to say that the proper authorities to fully handle mass murders are not economists, journalists, pundits, politicians, or scientists.
That must be done, in sane civilizations, by a fair criminal jurisprudence system that acts quickly when scientists and others observe the activity constituting an existential danger to that civilization (Oil-Qaeda: The Indictment, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).
In the case of our current civilization, that time to act would have been practically a lifetime ago (The Exceptional American Denial, cf. When Accountability Is A Plague, 2, 3).
II. In Other Words
There are two Dredd Blog series that have sought to argue that this predicament is not a sign of a sane civilization (The Peak of Sanity, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10; The Criminally Insane Epoch Arises, 2, 3, 4).
The pollution of the Earth and the result of that pollution has more of a local impact in some areas, but it also has more of a global impact in other cases.
III. Oh No ... More Seaport Graphs
Today's graphs are behind the curve, because I have not reviewed the report a NOAA
For example, Fig. 4 shows two East Coast seaports, one of which was displayed in an increasing acceleration scenario some time ago (The Extinction of Charleston).
Nevertheless, today's graphs indicate way more acceleration of sea level change than the IPCC estimates did.
Furthermore, today's graphs show that major seaports in major nations are an endangered species.
But more than that, they show that the extinction process is happening to all of the major seaports at about the same time all around the globe.
IV. How The Graphs Are Constructed
First, I download data from the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL).
I then write software modules in the C++ programming language to process that text-format data, then place the data into various tables in an SQL database (SQL Wikipedia).
Next, I write additional software modules to analyze and process the SQL data into CSV files (CSV Wikipedia).
That file format is used because many graphing programs handle CSV file format as a matter of course.
Finally, graphic displays generated by graph-generating programs are made then loaded into the Dredd Blog post editor (from Googledom) for your viewing pleasure.
The scary time frame for the ongoing extinction of seaports around the globe is brought to us by a criminal mindset within the epigovernment (Epigovernment: The New Model - 5).
We don't know exactly when our demise will be exacted, but it will happen well before the minions of the criminal enterprise I call Epigovernment tell us it will.
Meanwhile, "move along folks, nothing to see here" is evolving into "worse than previously thought."
