The Future...It's All About The Shoreline...

Here we go...

Click the image above for a celebration of Our Maritime Past in support of Our Maritime Future.

The Past Was.

Buck Up.

Forge Ahead...!

That pretty much sums up what we need to proceed.

There is pressing 21st Century Business on the horizon.

Change is upon us.

There's no turning back.

Threats must be recognized, realized, and confronted.

Embrace change and make it part of your everyday reality.

Here's why...click the seashell...

Hang onto your hat.

This is going to be the ride of our lives.

It’s official.

Climate Change is real.

Forget about who’s at fault.

Natural Cycle or Man-Made…whichever you believe…it’s happening.

The blame game is a diversion.

Let’s face it.

The Climate Bandwagon is rolling and everyone’s jumping on board.

Extreme response and reaction is unavoidable.

Global upheaval, caused by climatic changes we can’t control, is a terrifying juggernaut with no reverse…and no brakes.

Here’s the good news about Climate Change…it’s not tomorrow.

The bad news is…we’re already paying for it.

Everything on Earth just got more expensive…everything.

Here’s why…

It’s all about the Shoreline.

Earth’s Ocean is getting bigger.

Global Warming is heating the entire Ocean.

This heating causes expansion.

The Ocean’s volume is increasing.

Projections are for a possible two foot rise by the end of this Century…at a rate of less than an inch per year.

That doesn’t sound too bad.

We’re not talking about an instantaneous Global Tsunami.

Coastal cities are not going to suddenly wash into the Sea.

But, like the unrelenting tide itself, this change is coming.

Sea levels are rising and will continue to do so as Earth’s Climate changes and warms.

We have no choice but to acknowledge rising sea levels and confront the problem.

This problem affects everything we do.

As you will soon see.

Why is this important now if all reports are of a gradual, centuries long change?

Today’s Global Economy is fueled by International Trade via Maritime Commerce.

If eight billion or more of us are to thrive on Planet Earth, the Global Economy is essential.

Our Future success relies upon the Global Economy, which relies on Maritime Commerce.

This commerce all starts and ends at The Shoreline, and The Shoreline is changing.

Again, we’re not facing a sudden rise in sea level that instantly floods commercial facilities at major international ports.

What we do face is an enormously expensive undertaking as we prepare to hold back the Sea…everywhere on Earth.

Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy have already shown how vulnerable our coastal cities are.

A repeat of those storms, with sea level two feet higher, would be unimaginably catastrophic.

As we all know, nothing stops the rising tide…nothing.

That said, what does this mean to you and me?

It means that everything on The Shoreline just got more expensive.

In fact, give me a minute and I’ll tell you about how everything everywhere just got more expensive…everything.

This is plugged into the Climate Change, Maritime Commerce, Satellite Telecommunications, Global Economy Nexus.

Look around you.

Consider where all the stuff you see came from, how it got here, and where it will end up.

The answer is…it came from all over The Planet, was transported from one coastal city to another via Maritime Commerce, and it will be collected, recycled, and transported once again via ocean going vessel to be re-manufactured…and shipped again.

We already know that our future success relies upon the continuous loop of Global Shipping.

The movement of goods over the Ocean is what makes the big wheel turn.

And, as with every other coastal venture, the cost of Oceangoing shipping just went up.

This rising cost of doing business will be passed on to the consumer.

Since everything travels from port to port…and doing business at said ports is more expensive…everything everywhere becomes more expensive.

That is how important sea level rise is.

Pay Attention.

Insurance and remediation are already an enormous financial burden.

That’s why it matters now, and will continue to matter for as long as anyone alive on Earth today is still around…and then some.

Imagine where this is going as sea level rises.

So…it really is “All About The Shoreline”…

There’s a Seachange a’comin’…comin’ for us all…

we’re bound to get swept up in it…all ridin’ on this ball…

since what you see…is what you get…

learn to see it all…

( 1.20.07 )

Here’s a quick review to get caught up.

Sea level rise due to expansion from Global Warming threatens Global Commerce which threatens The Future of Humanity.

The worst is yet to come.

We must invest in preparation and prevention now, or face Global Economic Disaster as shorelines change.

Now…what can we do?

Here’s my plan…

There’s obviously a lot more to Climate Change than Sea Level Rise.

But, if we don’t get ahead of this situation, the other issues will become meaningless.

There will be no time or funds for Climate Studies as we struggle to get through each and every day.

The Global Economy will stumble, millions will starve, and chaos will rule.

Don’t panic.

We’re not going to let that happen.

Here’s where Telecommunications Satellite G2 comes in.

The vehicle is self-launching, recyclable, and leaves behind zero debris.

We’ve polluted Near Space with our debris...endangering our existing satellites and threatening future launches.

Since Near Space is The Shoreline of Outer Space, there is suddenly another Shoreline Crisis hanging over our heads like a swinging Scimitar…if we do nothing.

The issues with our Shoreline on Earth took Milennia to reach crisis stage.

In Near Space, we did it in a little over fifty years.

Just like the expanding Ocean, this pending crisis affects Maritime Commerce…our lifeblood.

Satellites track every product over every square mile of Earth's Ocean.

Plus...they provide the banking…and collect the bills...and pay the wages.

Any breakdown of this system and the big wheel screeches to a very abrupt halt.

Here's some good news.

Follow this link…G2…

It leads to explanations and solutions that can be initiated immediately…providing us time and opportunity to contend with the myriad of problems on the way…while eliminating the next big issue on the horizon…Space Junk.

It’s all part of the 21st Century Nexus…check it out…this is going to be as exciting as anything that has ever happened...ever...!

And we are fortunate enough to be a part of wherever that excitement leads.


Just to be thorough…

All of the above is moot if some unforeseen, catastrophic event occurs.

For example...

I mentioned Rogue Asteroids earlier.

Catastrophic Asteroid collision is as likely as any of the other doom and gloom scenarios and must be factored into any future plans we may have.

Depending on where and when this happens…all bets are off.

Simply put…all the planning and action in the world are meaningless if Earth suddenly shudders.

We're off like a prom dress in that case.

Meanwhile…enjoy the ride…!
