Re: Hurricane Preps

Little bump for this thread.... it’s time to check your preps. Florida typically has their sales tax free days first weekend in June (bit late in my mind). Some folks here still have tarps from Irma. Panhandle/Big Bend is still a mess from Michael.

Re: The study on collapse they thought you should not read – yet

I run a bit contrary on environmental. Not that humans aren’t doing substantial damage, we certainly are. I just doubt it is enough to throw off a cycle that has been going on for last 800,000 yrs.. Earth has been going through, glacial and inter-glacial periods. Theory of the cause is the Milankovi...

Re: The Next Ice Age

Solar input (and in some cases volcanic output) is the deciding factor. If the sun goes into an extended quiet period (e.g. Maunder minimum) we could get a mini ice age...or worse. If one goes by the last glacial/interglacial cycles.... we are due for another ice age. https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/abrup...

Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

Once service payments on debt becomes too high, then something will break. Most likely govts/CBs will do all they can to avoid reaching that point... drop interest rates to reduce size of payments, but the risk is out of control inflation. A serious war (trade/economic and or shooting) would be the ...
