Stephen Hawking is one of many scientists who see the possible near-term demise of our species. Never before has the Bulletin decided to advance the clock largely because of the statements of a single person, President Donald Trump.

Exceedingly depressing.

Maybe we'll find that the Second Coming & the Mahdi's coming are one and the same thing - demonstrated by the planet's self destruction thanks to mankind's stupidity ...

He wrote this last year;

"Now, more than at any time in our history, our species needs to work together. We face awesome environmental challenges: climate change, food production, overpopulation, the decimation of other species, epidemic disease, acidification of the oceans. Together, they are a reminder that we are at the most dangerous moment in the development of humanity. We now have the technology to destroy the planet on which we live, but have not yet developed the ability to escape it."

And what actually happens???
We get trump!!!!

with Drumpf I am not sure if it will be quickly, by war, or slowly by environmental poisoning and climate change, but I will continue to resist both until I can no longer do so

Perhaps it`s time to raise the level of consciousness above the level that created this... Positivity brings likewise results... and negativity may break the camel`s back.. thank you for sharing Dandelion.

Well, at least we have a theme song to play us out to black while we re-arrange the deck chairs.

R.E.M. - It's The End Of The World
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0GFRcFm-aY

"trumped" made it into this 1987 song.

That's great, it starts with an earthquake
Birds and snakes, and aeroplanes
And Lenny Bruce is not afraid

Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn
World serves its own needs,
Don't mis-serve your own needs
Speed it up a notch, speed, grunt, no, strength,
The ladder starts to clatter
With a fear of height, down, height
Wire in a fire, represent the seven games
And a government for hire and a combat site
Left her, wasn't coming in a hurry
With the Furies breathing down your neck

Team by team, reporters baffled, trumped, tethered, cropped
Look at that low plane, fine, then
Uh oh, overflow, population, common group
But it'll do, save yourself, serve yourself
World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed
Tell me with the Rapture and the reverent in the right, right
You vitriolic, patriotic, slam fight, bright light
Feeling pretty psyched

It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine

Six o'clock, T.V. hour, don't get caught in foreign tower
Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn
Lock him in uniform, book burning, bloodletting
Every motive escalate, automotive incinerate
Light a candle, light a motive, step down, step down
Watch your heel crush, crush, uh oh
This means no fear, cavalier, renegade and steering clear
A tournament, a tournament, a tournament of lies
Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives and I decline

It's the end of the world as we know it (I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it (I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine (time I had some time alone)
I feel fine (I feel fine)

It's the end of the world as we know it (time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it (time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine (time I had some time alone)

The other night I drifted nice continental drift divide
Mountains sit in a line, Leonard Bernstein
Leonid Brezhnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs
Birthday party, cheesecake, jellybean, boom
You symbiotic, patriotic, slam but neck, right, right

It's the end of the world as we know it (time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it (time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine (time I had some time alone)

It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine (time I had some time alone)

It's the end of the world as we know it (time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it (time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine (time I had some time alone)

It's the end of the world as we know it (time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it (time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine (time I had some time alone)

The positive is people are really joining together. You only loose when you admit defeat. Be empowered in your own right. And to the power by adding to the Good of All to All thankyou

The Green Party is the only party with a platform that puts people, planet, and peace over profit. It doesn't sit well with the 1%. I refuse to take a defeatist attitude here. I'm not going to give up. The election of Donald Trump as President is a symptom. The nomination of Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders (who was truly the more popular of the two) is a symptom.

If we truly care about our planet and its people, we would do well by it to elect more Greens to the higher offices in Congress and the White House. The US can't say it cares about the environment and then go and drop bombs in the Middle East and elsewhere. Obama wasn't the President he could have been just as Trump won't be the President that he said he would be. But we fight. We can't just resist.
