Where to go for survival?

The most asked question I get, from those assuming I’m better informed on this subject than they are, is “So where do I move to survive all this?”. I’ve been researching this (human survival) on several separate occasions the past two decades. One crucial requirement is the lack of seismic destruction, either by tsunami or by living on top of tectonic hazardous areas. So, scratching that off the list leaves the areas that will suffer the least from a warming planet. One would assume that would be the polar regions, but that’s a big mistake. Both poles are going to suffer immensely from warmer than normal surface (and ocean) temperatures. Aside from the soil being practically dead from the fast changes in temperature, there’s not much organic life that survives ice to heat in the currently observed time-spans.
I’ll elaborate more on all this as time passes, and will update this message/article, but for now I’ll post my findings thus far, the short-cut to a valuable answer to the question without the background info;

I’d advice the Heard & McDonald islands and/or the Falkland Islands. They’ll stay coldest the longest in the future, as do the seas around them, so if you’re lucky there’s still a food-source in the oceans too. The Falklands are probably going to be flooded with migrants from Argentina by then, and for that spot I’d hint at the NE-part of the islands. But the other option, somewhere around here, is my personal best bet for longest possible human survival. Be sure to build shelter somewhere on high ground on the NW part of the island, so you’ll be safe in case the Mawson Peak volcano erupts. And bring some seeds and soil to start up some new microbial freshwater life there. It all looks dead there now, but I assure you, it will be a thriving jungle there soon enough.

My personal biggest hurdle regarding migration is to get my loved ones to move with me, to where I would rather be and go, or to figure out a compromise we can all live with. It takes some more disasters for most of us to realize how soon we need to leave densely populated areas like Amsterdam (or The NL for that matter, with 416 humans/km2, a ridiculously unsustainable density). Although the Heard & McDonald islands is a top-of-the-bill prepping bet, my best kept secret, a favorite, realistic and most of all viable migratory option is moving to Estland/Estonia; Full of atheists, smart people, a strict but intelligent humane government, lots of resources, fertile land, naturally protected surroundings, and in reach over land (by car, even) from where we are now, in case planes suddenly stop flying because they can’t handle the storms or water vapor.

The above is disregarding the predicament hard to skip, namely radio-activity from the isotopes spread by unmanned molten down nuke plants everywhere. Perhaps in a few years we’ll have a working pill against that. One can hope and dream about surviving on other planets, but the straws to hang on to for that are getting thinner by the day. As is the world’s ice, making it harder to predict our options in the near future. As I like to often put it, there are two basic premises that overrule all others;
What goes on in the Arctic doesn’t stay in the Arctic.
The flywheels we’ve set in motion are not going to be easy to bring to a standstill.

Lord Commander Marmelade is losing it

Knowing there’s some states and mayors suing the Trump administration, I’m still flabbergasted at how lame and obedient everyone in trump’s surroundings seems to be. You can open your mouth, take some risk, refuse to follow orders, refuse to leave your job, just let these fools know you’re not going to join them in ruining the world like this. Ask your friend/colleague (who is probably thinking the same) to join you in that refusal. What are these men policing all this thinking anyway? That they’re protecting their offspring or families? Really, you think? Why are police officers, military personnel, marines, special forces, going down that road of being anti-intellectual dipshit robot-like slaves of destruction? For crying out loud, are they deaf or insane?

Iran has 150 *billion* barrels of (cheap) oil reserves ready to get out of the ground. 205 oil reservoirs, 92 natural gas reservoirs. Just sayin’. My guess is they’re also predicting that the longer they wait taking their oil, the hotter it gets over there. You can’t drill when it’s over 55C in the shade all year ’round.

It’s just such a waste of time and energy to have this total jackass leading the media and news all the time, with nothing but stupid (and they really *are* stupid) ideas, useless executive orders, attention-hungry lies, sensationalist propaganda, failures and non-stop face-palm material. Most annoying is the fact that we, humanity, don’t HAVE more time for messing around.

The disaster movie called human civilization

Everybody with half a brain is secretly watching it unfold. They don’t want to admit it, but something deep inside tells them they need to know what our status is, or they’ll be left behind not knowing what happened, and that’s not an option. So they sit back and watch the next episode of the new season; When *will* the oxygen levels really drop as a result of plankton depletion or are they already dropping, when will it be too hot where we live, where can we go to survive, who’s going to control, service or shutdown the 444 nuclear power facilities when they reside in areas that are no longer habitable? Let’s see what captain Paul Watson has to say about it, because he really knows his shit;
