TESS now hunting for more Exoplanets

August 2, 2018

habit zone exoplanets

NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite has started its search for planets around nearby stars, officially beginning science operations on July 25, 2018. TESS is expected to transmit its first series of science data back to Earth in August, and thereafter periodically every 13.5 days, once per orbit, as the spacecraft makes it closest approach to Earth. The TESS Science Team will begin searching the data for new planets immediately after the first series arrives.

Paul Ehrlich: “Collapse Of Civilisation Is A Near Certainty Within Decades”

Authored by Damian Carrington via The Guardian, edits in brackets

Fifty years after the publication of his controversial book The Population Bomb, biologist Paul Ehrlich warns overpopulation and overconsumption are driving us over the edge…

A shattering collapse of civilisation is a “near certainty” in the next few decades due to humanity’s continuing destruction of the natural world that sustains all life on Earth, according to biologist Prof Paul Ehrlich.

In May, it will be 50 years since the eminent biologist published his most famous and controversial book, The Population Bomb. But Ehrlich remains as outspoken as ever.

The world’s optimum population is less than [530 million people – 8.3 billion] fewer than on the planet today, he argues, and there is an increasing toxification of the entire planet by synthetic chemicals that may be more dangerous to people and wildlife than climate change.

Ehrlich also says an unprecedented redistribution of wealth is needed to end the over-consumption of resources, but “the rich who now run the global system – that hold the annual ‘world destroyer’ meetings in Davos – are unlikely to let it happen”.

 

The Population Bomb, written with his wife Anne Ehrlich in 1968, predicted “hundreds of millions of people are going to starve to death” in the 1970s – a fate that was avoided by the green revolution in intensive agriculture.

Many details and timings of events were wrong, Paul Ehrlich acknowledges today, but he says the book was correct overall.

“Population growth, along with over-consumption per capita, is driving civilisation over the edge: billions of people are now hungry or micronutrient malnourished, and climate disruption is killing people.”

Ehrlich has been at Stanford University since 1959 and is also president of the Millennium Alliance for Humanity and the Biosphere, which works “to reduce the threat of a shattering collapse of civilisation”.

“It is a near certainty in the next few decades, and the risk is increasing continually as long as perpetual growth of the human enterprise remains the goal of economic and political systems,” he says. “As I’ve said many times, ‘perpetual growth is the creed of the cancer cell’.”

It is the combination of high population and high consumption by the rich that is destroying the natural world, he says. Research published by Ehrlich and colleagues in 2017 concluded that this is driving a sixth mass extinction of biodiversity, upon which civilisation depends for clean air, water and food.

The solutions are tough, he says.

“To start, make modern contraception and back-up abortion available to all and give women full equal rights, pay and opportunities with men.

“I hope that would lead to a low enough total fertility rate that the needed shrinkage of population would follow. [But] it will take a very long time to humanely reduce total population to a size that is sustainable.”

 

He estimates an optimum global population size at roughly 1.5 to two billion,

But the longer humanity pursues business as usual, the smaller the sustainable society is likely to prove to be. We’re continuously harvesting the low-hanging fruit, for example by driving fisheries stocks to extinction.”

Ehrlich is also concerned about chemical pollution, which has already reached the most remote corners of the globe.

“The evidence we have is that toxics reduce the intelligence of children, and members of the first heavily influenced generation are now adults.”

He treats this risk with characteristic dark humour:

“The first empirical evidence we are dumbing down Homo sapiens were the Republican debates in the US 2016 presidential elections – and the resultant kakistocracy. On the other hand, toxification may solve the population problem, since sperm counts are plunging.”

 

Reflecting five decades after the publication of The Population Bomb (which he wanted to be titled Population, Resources, and Environment), he says: “No scientist would hold exactly the same views after a half century of further experience, but Anne and I are still proud of our book.” It helped start a worldwide debate on the impact of rising population that continues today, he says.

The book’s strength, Ehrlich says, is that it was short, direct and basically correct. “Its weaknesses were not enough on overconsumption and equity issues. It needed more on women’s rights, and explicit countering of racism – which I’ve spent much of my career and activism trying to counter.

“Too many rich people in the world is a major threat to the human future, and cultural and genetic diversity are great human resources.”

Accusations that the book lent support to racist attitudes to population controlstill hurt today, Ehrlich says. “Having been a co-inventor of the sit-in to desegregate restaurants in Lawrence, Kansas in the 1950s and having published books and articles on the biological ridiculousness of racism, those accusations continue to annoy me.”

But, he says: “You can’t let the possibility that ignorant people will interpret your ideas as racist keep you from discussing critical issues honestly.”

More of Paul and Anne Ehrlich’s reflections on their book are published in The Population Bomb Revisited.

 

Age Old Wise Advice

March 24, 2018

Human being of the Earth, I wish for you that you follow the age-old wise advice which are given to you in order to be progressive in your spirit and consciousness as well as in your entire life:

• Be wary of speaking a lot when you are amongst many human beings.

• Always only speak a lot where you are asked to do so in order to explain the sensible, important and progressive.

• Always be modest in all things, both in your thoughts and feelings and whatever you do and speak of.

• Always speak the truth and affirm only that which you know for sure.

• Always be tolerant and not criticising in all things.

• If you have good thoughts and feelings, then put them into practice in order to let something valuable ensue from them.

• If you receive good impulses and ideas, then use them in order to make something noble and precious out of them.

• When you encounter things that you or others care little or nothing at all about, then do not tenaciously strive to make them pleasing to you or others.

• If you encounter things which are pleasing to you or others, then endeavour extensively to make them more acceptable to you or others.

• When you have discussions and conversations, do not speak of banal things, but rather of useful and valueful things.

• Avoid unnecessary or foul words during conversations and avoid terrible or even slanderous defamation.

• Whatever you say or tell, do not exaggerate and do not raise yourself in a praising wise but rather always remain simple and moderate.

• Always pay attention to the moods and morals of your fellow human beings with whom you surround yourself or have a special association, and direct yourself rationally, correctly and in a straightforward form towards them.

• When you have no rational reason, then make no excuse – only excuse yourself when it is appropriate in a rational and correct wise.

• Be careful not to speak when you are not asked for your opinion.

• Never interfere in other people’s conflicts and disputes when you are not asked for advice or mediation by your counter-parties or when the self-defence is required to protect a life.

• Always be undemanding and do not demand for things which are not entitled to you.

• Always be unobtrusive and do not impose your opinion on anyone.

• With your thinking and your feelings as well as your deeds, always keep the creational-natural laws and recommendations in mind in order to direct everything according to them.

• Keep your tongue under control and speak of no evil about anyone when it does not correspond to the right- ness; but even then, if it is the truth, it is better that you keep silent.

• If you notice errors that you have committed, then seek to eradicate them with all rationality and with all the possibilities at your utilisation.

• Do not hold onto to the errors of others, but rather look for your own and resolve them.

• Never value yourself greater than you really are, and never regard yourself to be something special in the sense of being higher-exalted over others, because as human beings, all are of equal value.

• Always see – in all life, in all life forms as well as in all created and existing things – the true love and the wisdom.

Bacteria ‘that had not been there’ found on ISS hull, Russian cosmonaut says

November 27, 2017

Living bacteria were found on the surface of the International Space Station (ISS), and they might have extraterrestrial origins, Russian cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov said. The microorganisms will be studied further on Earth.

Shkaplerov, an ISS expedition flight engineer who will take his third trip to the ISS in December as part of the Expedition 54 crew, said that scientists found living bacteria while they were taking samples from the surface of the station. Speaking to TASS, he said that the microorganisms might have come from outer space.

“A Word To Mankind” last two sentences

April 4, 2017

excerpt from an article from “Stimme der Wassermannzeit Nr.107

34.  Only he who fights for life can win even when it seems useless.

35.  In the end, and in spite of all the defeats, the winners will be those who held onto the truth tenaciously and fought for it, even though this victory will only be signified by a good conscience and an inner satisfaction that they have fulfilled their duty with respect to life, the world, mankind and all other life forms on Earth in accordance with the laws and directives of Creation.

GOTT p. LIX Over the course of time,

November 1, 2016

“Over the course of time, humanity and democratic societies have been achieved and implemented through the peaceful struggle of human beings in accordance with rationality and truth, just as many human rights and other values have been. These are palpable and recognizable results by human beings who have fought for them for millennia and continue to do so. And if earthly humanity is currently standing as if in mockery close to the abyss of the destruction of all things, then it is precisely in this current epoch that the opportunity for radical change and victory in the struggle presents itself, although this will require the human beings of Earth finally to decide for the good, the positive, for the things that make life worth living and for life itself. The truth is that the third millennium presents a new opportunity in the firmament of fate that will cast out the darkness of past millennia of war and can bathe the future in a brilliant light. To achieve this, it is only necessary to seize the opportunity to heed the teaching of the prophets, to live according to the ‹Goblet of the Truth› which even the Celtic druids called the ‹goblet of the life› and ‹cauldron of the life›.”   [The Holy Grail]
