The United States Department of Interior published an alarming list of 35 mineral commodities under threat and critical to the economic and national security of the land.
Immediate steps are necessary to avoid critical situations in the mid and long term.
It’s like a leaking reservoir; the worldwide pace fundamental and essential natural resources are consumed overrules the input at a deeply concerning speed.
Earth resources are now diminishing at a pace never seen before. The world population digests natural resources 50% faster as they regenerate.
Scientists warn that we are heading towards a point of no return that could change the way humanity lives forever or even worse.
It is known for a while that large oil fields are running out of capacity. This is a bigger and more immediate treat than the impact fossil fuels have on the climate.
As I said many time before: Yes, there is climate change but bear in mind that the average worldwide temperature is barely raising. Climate change means not necessarily a rise in temperature. No need to panic about the climate because it is just a geographical shift.
I urge the press to stop spreading lies and misinformation. For example: They often talk about “the hottest particular day in history” but they fail to tell that decades ago a day with a far higher temperature occurred months earlier.
Some places are warmer than before but many colder. There is also a seasonal shift. In the Western hemisphere autumn stays longer warm and spring is in many places colder as it was in the past.
Let’s focus on the real threat.
The U.S. mineral warning list is really something to pay attention to. It includes basic minerals like aluminum (used in almost all sectors of the economy), the platinum group metals (used for catalytic agents as exhausting pipes in automobiles), rare elements used in batteries (for telephones and, my goodness, ELECTRIC cars) as well as other electronics.
Believe it or not, even a shortage of sand looms as the Africa swamps are turned into modern housing area’s and infrastructure construction works are widely on the rise.
It is of deep concern that humanity almost unavoidably will have to fight securing the basic needs in order to survive. After the first symptoms, such as the already occurring price hikes, later on technological developments and day to day life will be hindered.
Scientists predict that at the end of the day we all could end up in a major global conflict.
There is no other workaround as to decrease demand.
It is really frightening to see how living standards in Africa are bound for further hikes. Inhabitants of this part of the world are looking foreard to live luxury life plus all that comes to it.
I sincerely believe, the only way to avoid mass extinction is to stop the expanding world population.
If politicians don’t take action immediately, in the long run, circumstances unfortunately will do.
