Our planet is dying and this is no mere rendezvous with a date on a Mayan calendar in 2012. It’s the mass termination of life on planet Earth. Nature is under a scientific directive. It is... More > irreversible. It is the extinction protocol. In 2010, the planet was ravaged by the worst flooding seen in 1000 years. Profound earth-changes have already devastated the planet and even more catastrophic change is yet to come. We are entering a period of extreme volcanism. Chaitén (Chile) erupted after being dormant for 9500 years, Eyjafjallajökull (Iceland) erupted after 187 years, and Sinabung volcano (Indonesia) erupted after 400 years. Earth's magnetic field is faltering as we approach the solar maximum (2012-2013). Earthquakes are intensifying and the planet's climate is becoming increasingly inhospitable and will be soon pushed to the brink of collapse. Civilization is poised on the precipice of the most stupendous crisis in Earth’s history and we are running out of time to save what remains left of the human race.< Less

More > on a finite planet. There is a way forward, but we must first understand the damage we have done to our spaceship Earth and how our social environment has conditioned us into behaviour patterns which are not conducive to maintaining a healthy biosphere or society. Those understandings lead to a self evident train of thought which encourages us to move decisively away from Capitalism and toward an economy based on sharing and fairness.< Less

More > biosphere are threatened by catastrophic climate change. Unless rapid steps are taken to replace fossil fuels by 100% renewable energy, we risk passing a tipping point beyond which uncontrollable feedback loops could produce a 6th extinction event comparable to those observed in the geological record. Another serious threat to human civilization and the biosphere is the danger of a catastrophic thermonuclear war. Over a long period of time there is an ever-increasing risk that such a war will occur by accident or miscalculation. Thirdly, there is threat of an extremely serious and widespread famine, produced by the climate change, rapidly-growing populations, and the end of the fossil fuel era. We must urgently address all three challenges.< Less

According to family lore, the author was descended from a Lord Sherborne in England. For years, the author tried to find information about the Lords of Sherborne to no avail, the family was... More > apparently extinct. However, using the internet, the author uncovered the Sherborne secret and proved his family’s relationship to the Lords of Sherborne. The author surprisingly finds himself descended over 100 times from the Kings of England and from other notables, including the Howard family, Earls of Suffolk & Berkshire. Most surprising genealogical discovery: that he is a 6th cousin, once-removed, of the former Princess Diana of Wales, and 7th cousin to Princes William and Harry Windsor. So take a genealogical walk back in time to the days when the sons of the blood royal were forbidden to marry the daughters of common men, when class distinctions mattered more than true love, when a toddler was wrenched away from a father that might have loved him but for the customs of the day…and discover Lord Sherborne!< Less
