Today we know, or should know, that 3 problems are lurking just around the corner, in the not too far future.

These problems are:

1. World Population – WP

2. Climate Change – CC

3. Global Debts – GD

Some might object, that CC is a scam. And perhaps they are right. But what if it is not a scam? Who is going to take responsibility then? All these CC-deniers? I don’t think so. Their grand children will take the can for them!

Since a CC is probable, it qualifies as a problem in the scope of this post.

There is no doubt, that the WP will grow by 30% until 2050, give or take. Today about 7 billion people populate the earth. And not all inhabitants are provided with the minimum. Still hundreds of million people suffer from malnutrition and undernourishment, still hundreds of million people have no direct access to drink water.

How will it be, when the WP reaches 9 billion in 2050?

The CC will aggravate the situation. With the climate also the land, the air and the sea will change. This means, that human kind will have a lot less land and drink water and the air will be stormy.

Even today more than enough people live in sub human conditions. In the near future, the number of such unfortunate human beings will probably be much higher compared to WP growth and aggravated by the CC.

At this point, the fourth problem must be mentioned before the third one.

If we really want to fight against the CC, measures must be undertaken on a global scale, which would allow nature to regain balance. For this a high investment of money is needed and this without a hope of cash return.

This fact leads us directly back to the third problem.This is, that most countries on earth are overly indebted. Alone the financial crises of summer 2008 did cost every citizen of America and Europe some thousand US-Dollars and Europe. For the 3.World the development aid is a debt trap. The developed countries, of course, sold the 3.World their own technology and infrastructure. Which is not adequate even for the the developed. Less so for, so called, underdeveloped countries. The present development aid is much too expensive for poor countries and the debt and dependence grows.

It should be clear to everybody, the day will come and the debt must be redeemed. Or the whole global economy will crash totally. Where are the politicians and academics, who are seeking a solution to this problem. Those are the people who know the facts. Still, only silence in the ranks.

The men and women at the helm of national and international ships, should know all the facts and should understand that, either way, all four problems will cost us dearly. Either the problems are solved, which will cost a lot of money, or we ignore the problems and we will have to pay later with an increased suffering of human beings.

Is there anybody out there, who could tell us how to solve all four problems simultaneously?

We, at Nesseq, don’t want to rely on those politicians, business men and academics. We believe in the power of group. The neighborhood is the way how to tackle the four problems. How to do it? Read about the Inherent Energy, the TOTEM System and the Loan Guaranty Fund in this website.

Although we can start doing something without to wait for those exalted personalities, everyone of us can do something. We can start by reducing our consumption of animal products, to save energy and to separate the garbage.

    I want to add few things to your article:

    Big surprises still hide beneath the frozen surface of snowy Greenland. Despite decades of poking and prodding by scientists, only now has the massive ice island revealed a hidden aquifer.

    In southeast Greenland, more than 100 billion tons of liquid water soaks a slushy snow layer buried anywhere from 15 to 160 feet (5 to 50 meters) below the surface. This snow aquifer covers more than 27,000 square miles (70,000 square kilometers) — an area bigger than West Virginia — researchers report today (Dec. 22) in the journal Nature Geoscience.

    The discovery will help scientists better understand the fate of Greenland’s annual surface melt, which contributes to sea level rise. When the summer sun warms the Arctic island, a giant water world of stunning blue lakes and streams appears atop the ice. Tracking this surface runoff helps scientists account for ice lost to melting each year. Until now, researchers thought most of this water went to the ocean or refroze on the ice. Now they’ve found a new hiding place.

    No one yet knows how old the water in the aquifer is, and whether it stays trapped in the snow or reaches the ocean in slow streams or catastrophic floods. However, the top of the water table rose after Greenland’s huge surface melt in 2012, the researchers report in their GRL study.

    Researchers estimate Greenland has lost more than 200 million tons of ice and snow each year since 2003. The ice sheet will completely disappear when the planet’s average temperature rises by 2 to 7.2 degrees Fahrenheit (1 to 4 degrees Celsius) above preindustrial temperatures, as predicted by the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, released in September.

    Earth’s surface temperatures are already up 1.3 F (0.7 C) from preindustrial temperatures, with average temperatures rising faster in Greenland.

      Dear Javid,
      thank you very much for your kind letter.
      In theory you are right, I would love to visit Iran. But I do not think I can do it, as usual, not enough money. If the situation will change and I decide to come visit your country be assured I will contact you. Anyway, I am glad to have visitors from Iran. I regard it as a honour.
      All the best,
      Max

      One wonders wehhetr McIntyre has ever actually worked in a real business. To be sure, the Enron managers deserved to go to jail for fraud, their conduct was egregious. But the kind of misreporting that McIntyre alleges and gets so worked up about in regard to climate scientists is commonplace and legal practice when companies report results to shareholders. Poorly performing projects are downplayed, good ones hyped. Last year’s performance metric that the company was so proud of then is replaced by a different metric that makes this year’s results look good. Communication experts advise executives how to frame their presentations and how to change the subject when asked an awkward question. Lawyers provide advice on the boundary between acceptable spin and actionable fraud. Graphics designers and photographers help produce annual reports that show the company to be a Potemkin Village of happy workers and spotless operations.In short, hiding the decline for corporate executives is not an unfortunate choice of words in a private email but, rather, a big part of their job description.
