I am sometimes asked how I predicted the collapse of the climate so accurately. My answer is simple: I didn’t deny reality. Now, as I watch the horrific fires in Siberia and the Pacific Northwest, the devastating floods in Europe, and the agonizing destruction caused by the latest superstorm, Hurricane Ida, I feel a deep sense of woe and helplessness.

This sense helplessness comes from two directions: I have watched this situation develop inevitably and certainly for more than 30 years; I have watched leaders around the world waffle, deny and lie over that same period of time.

My fear is that it’s now too late. Just in the past 2 years, major changes have taken place that suggest that we are going to see the full impact of fundamental climate change, and that this is going to happen very quickly from now on.

People ask me what’s the best place to go to survive? I know wealthy people who have bought land and built shelters in various out-of-the-way places. I tell them all the same thing: this will affect every ecosystem on the planet. They will all change, including popular wealthy refuges such as Paraguay and New Zealand. None of them will change for the better.

So, what will the future bring. The next 12 months will tell us a lot. What happens in the arctic this winter is very important. If there is no significant arctic winter, and the cold air is once again forced south, then it could be that an extreme heating event is underway there. If so, the Russians will get their wish: it will be possible to use the Northwest Passage at last—to ship more oil more cheaply, of course.

We need a massive, planet-wide effort to save ourselves. And yet the US is actively encouraging more oil use by making sure that prices stay low. And yet China is aggressively marketing coal-fired power plants at cut rate prices across the third world, not to mention ignoring it’s own climate responses at home. And yet the president of Brazil actively encourages the burning of the Amazon jungle. And yet the chaotic mess that is Russia doesn’t have anything remotely resembling the will or the capacity to fight the Siberian fires.

As far as mitigation is concerned, forget it. We need effective carbon capture, new energy sources and, above all a popular will to survival that compels coordinated political action across the planet. But, as often as not, we get the opposite. When you hear a politician say that he doesn’t “believe in” climate change, what he is really saying is that he wants the planet to depopulate. This may be because he’s part of some esoteric conspiracy or other, or it may simply be an instinctive reaction to excess population, or perhaps a greed-based response that cares nothing for the future or even, life as it is being lived right now.

As I write this, I am watching a television broadcaster shout that what has happened in the US northeast as a result of Ida is a “once in 500 year event.” The stupidity of this sickens me. How can they be so blind? It is probable that such events are going to become commonplace, and for reasons that I pointed out before Katrina 16 years ago. Every time a tropical system enters the Gulf of Mexico, it is likely, as it comes ashore, to grow into a monster. This is because the near-shore Gulf waters are overheated. Ida crossed water off the Louisiana coast that was hovering around 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

There is no reason to expect that more Katrinas, Superstorm Sandys and Idas are not going to happen. “Once in 500 years?” Give me a break—this could happen again this year, or even more than one more time this year, and it certainly will happen many times over the next decade.  In fact, every time a storm enters the Gulf or develops in it, there is a significant possibility that the superstorm trigger is going to be pulled.

And as to the North Atlantic Oscillation—the weaker it gets, the more deranged climate will become, and not just in Europe, although Europe will bear the brunt.

  1. Hello, Whitley! Thank you for this post. I was thinking about the four Horsemen just the other day. When I was a freshman or sophomore in Highschool, over 50 years ago, I met a young & charismatic classmate. He became the leader of our small group of kids who studied Edgar Cayce, ufos & the like. We were certain Cayce’s predictions would come true & I didn’t think I would last beyond the turn of the century. I asked my friend what he thought about all the people who would die and how he would feel if he was one of them. He gave a great smile & answered, “I’ll work from the other side”. His words have stayed with me in a comforting way. So, that’s my plan, as well. As I witness everything unfolding, it gives me great sadness as I truly love the Earth and all her beauty. Thank you for all you and Ann have given us.

    1. “He gave a great smile & answered, “I’ll work from the other side”. His words have stayed with me in a comforting way. So, that’s my plan, as well. ”

      That’s beautiful.

      Thank you for sharing.

      I take solace in such a framing of this all.

      I will likely remember this as you have.

  2. Whitley, please take comfort in the fact that you personally did what you were called to do; that is, you definitely did your part. That is all any of us can do.

  3. Word for word, thought for thought here. As my film logline says,”You were warned but you didn’t listen”.
    Helpless? Yes. It really is too late. Still they beat on me to echo the warning. I’ll keep trying. It’d sll we can do.

    1. When Little Bush was second term president, the first time ever gathering of the planet’s top dignitaries met and called it the “Kyoto Treaty”, if I remember correctly. The first time discussion for the reduction of pollutants in our atmosphere. 5 minutes into this meeting President Bush went to leave and was confronted by the Chairman or speaker, as to why he is leaving when this gathering required quite a lot of time to appear there. President Bush looked around the room and said that not one person here will be alive in 2050 so what’s the concern. This story was printed for publication at the newspaper that I worked at and was retracted from publication before it got out. I developed this story being that I was a processor there at the time with thousands of other stories that filled an 8′ X 10′ Storage locker that was broken into and everything disappeared at the same time I had back to back security breaches through the newspaper I was employed by in Chicago USA. World Population to other beings to the power that be and is. I was shown how expendable and easy it is for me to disappear, during that time, and management begged that I quit investigating these things and using the privileged resources of the newspaper, or they won’t have to fire me because They will make me disappear. I met with several EU scientists for lunch when they were in for certain conferences and they always said, American people are like programmed cattle. Fear gets American’s motivated. Network Television programs teach them how to live. All news is filtered, changed, misleading and geared to motivate what the government feels important at that current time. 1 to 3% are the people you never see, but are the ones that are in the know, most working for military contracts in the technology stages. So just how many years are consumers behind what our military is currently using? You really don’t want to know, it’s unfathomable to most. I do believe that we are on the doorstep of enlightenment in several stages. Renaissance period looks very familiar to what’s being captured by cell phones when you put it next to their paintings, hieroglyphs, etchings, etc.. I live in the Pacific Northwest and can tell you, this is NOT a fluke. Aren’t we paying for the airlines of the Seventies leaving their toxic chem/vapor trails? If everyone could remember this ONE Simple Native American Rule to live by: Wherever you are and it’s now time to leave, leave no trail behind you of evidence that shows you were ever there I beg that People wake up to reality and at least try to help our Mother Earth. When the animals die and Mother Earth works double overtime to replace her natural resources, we ARE the Shepards that are here to live in conjunction with her and keep her happy and again we are not upholding our agreement, so now look around and see that again, we are to blame. Stand Up & Be Heard! So what if people think your nuts, all humans are! Wake Up the World is What Whitley Does, but not everyone wants to get on the bandwagon till it becomes convenient or acceptable because now the neighbors believe, and it’s main stream. Be That Social Butterfly Of Reality! Wake UP The World! NOW IS THE TIME!!!!!

    2. Yes, in the ’90’s it was 2050 for what is happening now this many years prior. I am a fly fisherman and entomologist by hobby. 1996 Midwest was 2 to 3 months out of whack with the hatches. Salmon & Trout Spawn runs were also off. Now there are Dragon Flys mutating with Damsel flies and so on. Out here in the Pacific Northwest in the last 2 years, the Song Birds are disappearing rapidly leaving only the raptor and scavengers. Earwigs have become gigantic in my Fruit Trees and ate all the fruit before it ripened. The DNR is releasing farm raised Trout and Salmon in our free flowing rivers. Farm Raised Trout swim with their dorsal fin breaching the water, free swimming Trout do not. They lie. Plus farm raised don’t have the strength for Damned rivers and their spawn becomes a shorter span and their lives to with the exception of Lake Trout which live long and also have a high Mercury count, similar to the Brown German Trout in America which are very high in Mercury in the Mid Western states…It’s True. It’s True Believe What I Say…

  4. The situation has also left me deeply saddened. I find myself struggling to live the life of joy I know is in all of our best interests knowing that the suffering attendant to climate change is upon us. As for the fools, like Fox News, who deny climate change and mock its advocates, I sense a true darkness, a feeling that at some level they have given up and want the death that will result. It’s appalling, and I struggle to contain my anger. The natural beauty of our world is remarkable. Mother nature is by far the greatest genius, the most sublime artist and the wisest entity I have ever become conscious of. What a gift to be in her world, and how we have made a mess of it. It’s Darwin time for the human race. I know all of this makes me sound morbid, and maybe defeatist, but I’m still waiting for some sign that the inevitable march of climate change will not, in fact, result in the destruction Whitley, the visitors and so many others have been warning of. Waiting . . . .

    1. I feel that all human endeavour in science , arts , technology and agriculture has been sidetracked by greed and corruption .
      Sergios , it’s just so depressing that the intelligence of humanity has evolved so greatly , but moral duty and empathy for others and our Mother Earth has declined .
      I feel that Whitley is a voice in the Wilderness , no one in power wants or cares about the urgent message he has for us .
      My hero Sir David Attenborough has spent his life compelling us to nurture our home planet , his voice is now desperate and he is so obviously in dispair at the irreversible damage wrought my mankind .
      I would like to think there’s hope , but each year that passes makes this optimism fade.
      We can only do so much as individuals , unless nations unite in a plan to save the planet , all our dreams gone .

      1. This is why humans have always, for whatever reasons, had to start over again and again. My Native Elders have taught me that most of us have all led many past life’s, hence the words, He’s an old soul. We still haven’t learned a damned thing have we? Corruption at it’s finest always seems to come back home doesn’t it? This planet will survive, like Mars, but the humans of our society won’t be provided for by anyone’s government and really are expendable outside our own military that already has the exchange program on many levels humans to me will eventually progress to just balls of energy like the spirits we capture on digital…

  5. And Whitley did not just do his best. His effort to guide us away from disaster was close to super human.

  6. I had a devout conservative catholic, who I’ve known for decades and consider a somewhat good friend, he lives across country now, lecture me in detail about the “Deposit of Faith” of all Catholics, that Pope Francis is a communist but that the “Cardinals” are holding fast and won’t budge and align with his Agenda and that California is suffering because all the “Sin” is here and God’s letting us have it….he didn’t say that last line literally, but that was the drift….his wife and his children all educated in some of the best schools/universities in the nation, working high up in government and tech….and this is where its at….only cuz I’ve known him for so long does he openly share…we are so frickin backwards as a collective and yet, its his faith and I have to respect that,,,,its just the sadness of observing those whos’ minds are so very very closed…in many differing directions

    1. Author

      Perhaps your friend forgets the vast catastrophe unfolding in Siberia, the devastating floods in Germany and Belgium, the fires in Brazil, the dreadful effects of hurricane Ida In a conservative state lake Louisiana and all of the eastern seaboard including many other states he would consider God’s country. The awful truth is that nature is numbers. And nature is all we have. It cannot hear prayers.

    2. Uh, I was raised and confirmed Catholic. My mother sang with the Sacred Sisters of Death Funeral Choir.
      At the age of 18 with 500 Dollars a Meat Loaf Sandwich and a one way ticket to Seattle, Washington State, the Native Americans in the Tulalip Reservation took me in and taught me their Christianity.
      This was really enlightening to me especially all the things that I was Taught are a product of evil, not only are real but not evil in the context we were taught.
      I also learned that Christopher Columbus was ratted out to the Spanish Inquisition and might have been flogged for recording on his voyage to the America’s his USO Sighting.
      The original instructions of Man and Earth were always held and taught first, by the Natives of every country. They had the 3rd eye because their was no corruption on the scale that our lives have been established. Edgar Cayce. Read 2 Books. Power of your mind and the book of dreams have helped me digest and chew the fat of the meat for reality. Whitley is Great, but is a threat to mainstream beliefs and morals that are meant to bind people from opening their minds…

  7. When people get scared, they get selfish. I assume that a lot of the destruction going on (the man-made part of it) has to do with people just looting what they can in an effort to take care of themselves. It reminds me of 1000s of people in a refugee camp fighting for food coming out of the back of a single truck. Same mindset: “Me first!”

    Hence, there’s not much acknowledgement that we need to think about anything more than ourselves — at least not by the corporate looters. Thankfully there are people like Boyan Slat and “The Ocean Cleanup” crew from Holland, otherwise there would be so little to hang our hopes on these days. Oil spill in the Mediterranean on Aug 25 didn’t help matters any. Each day the pile of environmental “to dos” gets bigger.

    I think the aliens are smart to keep their distance. We’d probably drag them down, too. Rob them blind. Steal their girlfriends. You know, typical human behavior… 🙂

  8. We have learned to convert energies without first learning how to revert them before unleashing them upon this world .
    It has always been considered a waste of time and money .

    Now it is at our throats like a razor . The answer has been to build machines that kill millions of birds each year and clutter the landscape with equipment that will go on killing long after we are gone .

    We can’t or won’t even get that right .

  9. The global average atmospheric carbon dioxide in 2019 was 409.8 parts per million (ppm for short), with a range of uncertainty of plus or minus 0.1 ppm. Carbon dioxide levels today are higher than at any point in at least the past 800,000 years.
    Yesterday I checked for August 2021 it was 412.5.
    Its really over for us. BUT- what do remote viewers and psychics see? None seem to report hellish scenarios devoid of humans. I find that strange. I have been following Climate since 1985- in fact It was my 2nd career choice after ER Medicine. MOTK and Whitley have reported the frequency of changes. It is only a matter of time before an Ice free Artic and the superstorms.
    I have asked for Guy McPherson to be on Dreamland- he is another truth teller. What did Ray Grasse have to say?

    As for surviving.. well the inability to grow grains at scale will lead to the starvation of millions. Sooner or later you can run anywhere and buy a few months at best – but we all will perish – but only a hand full will carry on…maybe that is the 1000+ years of peace and the new beginning of mankind. Let’s have hope… for if not… It is very dark indeed.

  10. Anthropogenic Climate Change will be abrupt and is not centuries away but rather decades. Civilization is a heat engine. Civilization is cities, when you commit to a city, you commit to poor land use that is unable to feed and hydrate its overpopulated inhabitants. When we lose the ability to grow grains in the grain belt, most of mankind will starve. Right now, only the albedo effect, is keeping temperatures down. Ironic that the reflective pollutants that we spew daily are keeping the temperatures down.

    A scary Catch -22: Stop polluting and temps soar or keep polluting and increase C02.

    1. KYOTO PROTOCAL. Japan upheld. Canada dropped out 2012. America well you see the outcome. Initially The first meeting was in 1992 if I remember correctly. Their initial concern was for 2050, now look and see what that tells you. Wake Up The World for Our Future Generations, That’s what WE NEED To DO!!! Who Else Will?????????????

  11. The artic poles are warming up 2-3 times faster than the rest of the world. There will be places where the rate of change will be slower. Moving to a high attitude or latitude will not hide you from the aerosol masking effect. The break down of nuclear power plants 450+ nuclear power stations. Even first responders stop responding in an emergency they will get back to their families when they realize the situation is out of control. It happened in Fukishima those things must have people there to run it. When the grid was shut off in a few days the backup generators failed. Why would you stay to save the planet when there are 450+ around the world? You can live in a world 20 years from now in your bunker munching on your canned peaches basking in ionized radiation for 2-3 years.

  12. More Party Poopers:

    The inability to grow grains at scale. This civilization as with all previous civilization depends on the ability to grow, store and distribute grains at scale. Without wheat, without soybeans without corn, this society is toast. Starvation. In the first world we have enough to get us through 2-3 weeks with a pad. It’s when the water stops coming out of the taps. The stuff we have come to depend upon no longer comes. Distribution in the supply chain, then the whole thing collapses in a couple of weeks.
    Dehydration will kill the 1st world. Its way too many people in too small a temperature.

    Lethal wet bulb temperature. The human body becomes to hot with temperature and humidity at high levels. Causes organ failure in human beings. We see it now in tropical countries.

  13. Well here I go posting again. Most be the Reality Climate Change Corps I was involved with in Washington DC ( Yes I met AL Gore and Bill Nye)

    Safe places? You may buy 1-2 extra months but it will as Whitley says effect us all. Even if one runs to the North to escape the heat, what happens when the Ice dome creates mile glaciers all the way down to Kansas City?
    We just don’t know… its all conjecture.. we have heard nothing from human psychics , remote workers or futurists.
    The visitors have shown abductees and such mind
    screens of the earth exploding… but we need to hear more about migrations, starvations etc… the near future..

    1. If we look at the history of communications from entities of various sorts (the saucer people of the contactees, channeled entities, modern abductees, etc) we see that most of the major predictions did not come true. The late Karla Turner made this point quite effectively in her work; if i recall correctly even flat out saying that the only thing we really know about them [i.e. the aliens, visitors or whatever] is that “they are liars.”
      I doubt we want to really make much of the information we might received from these sources – especially when predictions are dire, as they often are.

  14. Read “The Superstorm” back in the late 90’s. As I remember, the book predicted that Earth would suffer an unstable period of intense heat followed by a superstorm that brings on a new climate equilibrium: a new Ice Age. Sounds like no one place will be a refuge for long.

    1. I did read it Marschild and its awesome – the movie Day after tomorrow was entertaining and of course “hollywooded” up as they must be- but some science remained.

      Here’s something new:
      They will all change, including popular wealthy refuges such as Paraguay and New Zealand. None of them will change for the better.

      Wonder why the silicon valley billionaires and such chose these 2 locals for safety? They don’t seem any safer than most places in the world. That would make a fascinating blog.

  15. Yes, the New Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is destructive and concerning, but the root-cause is even more disturbing and even more destructive.

    Our living planet is only reacting to the poor choices that we have made in humanity.

    Every entity, (physical or non-physical), no matter how big or how small has one core objective … “Existence”, and each will do what ever it takes to meet the objective.

    Every action has a reaction, and if everyone does what they want then there is an impaction. It is a dangerous competitive game of positive and negative actions with positive and negative reactions.

    We must understand who we are at the core, seek the truth, and understand the impacts of our actions. Everything has a purpose and to ignore this is neglect.

    We may ignore the planet but it will react to our actions, and if we ignore the planet, then we ignore each other.

    Our fate is determined by the decisions that we make for humanity. We only have ourselves to blame for where we are at.

    May we wake up before it is too late.

    1. I have been hearing the “we need to wake up as a species” message since i was a child in the late 70s – there are variations on that going at least back the the 30’s or before that I’ve encountered in my readings.
      It is a noble sentiment, but completely and utterly unrealistic to expect that it will ever happen. Moreover, there is a dark undertone to it’s implications that is often lost on many. My main issue with this line of thinking is that it amounts to a version of “the world would be such a better place if everyone thought the same way I did.” – how many problems have resulted from that sort of outlook?
      Our successes as a species are more about creating and leveraging systems to mitigate our negative nature or deflect those instincts into a more productive (or at least less destructive) form.

      1. Respect your belief … my only comment … if you always live inside the box you will never realize that there is an outside. Always was, always is, is so restrictive. The choice is and was always an optional. Some people just don’t wake up as quickly as others.

        1. Ultimately my point is that everyone is inside one sort of box or another. What I’ve noticed is that often those that tend to want to lecture others about waking up tend to be blind to the boxes that they themselves are enclosed in. I’ll give you one example: There are some commenters on this site that speak about spiritual enlightenment and evolution and all of that while at the same time they seem to express the view that if we could only get rid of Fox News and all the conservative Christians then America would be a paradise.

          Now I am neither a viewer of that channel nor a member of that religion but I find such views to be the equivalent of mental comfort food because it relies on an easy villain on which to blame the apparent stupidity of the country and the ills we face.

          The ‘liberals’ that hold such views are quick to wring their hands over those ignorant rubes from the country for their love of gas guzzling trucks and the resultant emissions. Yet those same liberals are mum about their own consumption of high tech products (cell phones, ipads, computers, electric vehicles and so forth of which they probably consume in higher percentage of per capita than aforementioned rubes) which contribute significantly to emissions and toxic pollution of the environment.

          Everything can be said to have a dual nature. On the one side of the political spectrum there is the lament that people are “denying science” but isn’t science (and the resulting technology) ultimately to blame for the calamity of toxic pollution in our environment? It all depends on which angle you look at it from, doesn’t it?

          IMO people should avoid massaging their own ego by laying blame solely at some group that is perceived as of a “lower level of evolution” or some other form of “undesirable.”

          1. Love and positive actions will help
