Preparing for Extinction

The odds of life on earth going extinct in the near future are almost certain. Why?

To stop the madman Trump would require drastic action, e.g. impeachment, assassination or insurrection. However, nobody takes Trump as a threat seriously enough to warrant such action. They prefer to indulge in wishful thinking. I can’t see how the world could survive the Trump presidency without mass extinction. We are a terminally stupid, optimistic species.

Imagine if an asteroid were headed for earth with even a 10% chance of colliding. We would not just ignore it. Trump has far larger than 10% odds of wiping out the planet. We are suicidal to ignore the danger.

Ticking Off China

Why is China important?

  • Us’ biggest trading partner.
  • they hold a huge amount of the US national debt.
  • they produce most of the consumer goods for the USA.
  • they have nukes and missiles.
  • they are next in line to the be the world superpower.

What has the US done recently to tick the Chinese off?

  • Trump treated their province as a separate nation (Taiwan). They are very sensitive about this. Originally we supported Taiwan.
  • Trump spat on the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) trade treaty with China that had been years in the making.
  • Siding with the Philippines in a sea territorial dispute with China. China made fake islands to back its claim.
  • Trump vilified them during the election with racist stereotypes.
