When I was on Coast to Coast I was rattled by the barrage of questions and interruptions. I wanted to clarify that when I said the thing that was going to destroy this world wasn’t going to be what he believed at the time, an impending war in Libya. Rather it would be climate change. When he asked how long I said 30 years. But instead of getting to explain what I meant by that he was like, “30 years, we’ll all be dead by then.” I made a comment that I wouldn’t be nor did I expect my kid to be.
In fact this is the very problem with being short-sighted. Go ahead George Bush Jr. have a giant party on the American people, kill hundreds of thousands of people in the middle-east for no reason – because of a lie and then leave our country bankrupt for the next president to fix. This is the way of the Republican party since what was called “The Southern Strategy.”
The “Southern Strategy,” took direct aim at enticing racists in the south to get their vote since none would vote Republican due to the Civil War. Yes, they held a grudge until their own hatred was used to turn them toward the Republican party. This happened around the time of Nixon and has been the strategy ever since. This is HISTORICAL FACT. Look it up if you don’t believe me.
Now back to my point about Noory. I love his show and he’s a good man. I think either he was nervous since I was a new guest that I wasn’t going to perform so he over-reached in his desire to keep the conversation flowing. I don’t blame him for my inablity to get my point across – there was however very limited time. However the point I was trying to make was over the next 30 years we will see the human population on this earth dwindle due to natural disasters, famines – due to weather problems, and everything one can imagine from a changing earth. 30 years is not very long for 7 billion people to be wiped out.
It’s my very strong psychic belief that the road we are on is one in which our kind will be wiped out in a whimper not a bang. If we are lucky we can turn it around – in the “fiction” book I wrote, Americhrist, (first draft started in 1998 and finished in 1999) based on visions I had of the future, we are a divided people – those on the extreme right which stands against science. A few of each tribe survived and a conflict ensues. I don’t want to give it away as it will eventually come out and you can read it in full. But the amount of people who are left on this continent are literally in the thousands. I decided to focus primarily on North America since that’s where I live. I’m sure there will be pockets of people who survive all over the world but it will be miniscule compared to how many of us there are now.
However I KNOW WE CAN CHANGE THIS! I STILL BELIEVE IN HUMANITY AND OUR BRILLIANCE! If we took this SERIOUSLY we could FIX it. This is why I wrote the book, to make it so real, so visceral that it motivated people to DO something about it.
Yes, that is the future I see and it scares the hell out of me. And to answer one person who commented here – I always feel like Cassandra and as you can see by the right-wing ostriches who freak out on me – I am also blamed for the message. It’s frustrating to feel like I’m trying to warn this big bus it’s about to go off a cliff but instead of the driver listening to me – he and half the people on it are giving me the finger as they drive off the cliff – as if I put the cliff there? Pretty irrational, depressing and sad.
That’s humanity for you. Do the world a favor by exposing the truth – Michael Moore, Al Gore and countless others and you get rewarded with death threats.
My prayers go out to all those on the east coast.
