For eons of time humanity have looked up into the sky, the dark night filled with stars and seen the mystery of creation. For thousands of years we’ve speculated about what is “out there”. Astronomers have tried mapping the Universe, astrologers have tried to understand the connection between the Universe and our humanity, astronauts and Nasa have attempted penetrating the vastness of space and many a myth have been shared between generations in the light of bonfires under the stars.
We sit on this small planet among giants held in place only by what seems like a fragile force of gravity as though we could at any moment lift of the ground and float aimlessly into the darkness. For eons of times humans have created ideas to explain the universe and its riddles, many of which are experienced as spiritual or extraterrestrial, like the Planet Niburu or Planet X, The Galactic Federation of Life or the belief that we are ascending to a 5. Dimension. The year 2012 has equally become a part of global speculation and wonder.
In this blog series I am going to focus on the backside, the shadow side of the 2012 phenomena, which ironically is the events taking place right here on earth in front of our very eyes, effecting our very lives on a daily basis. Because while we are busy talking about what is going to happen “out there” or in between the weavings of the world, we are (conveniently) disregarding what is already going on here on earth.
It is convenient because what is here on earth is not pretty or magic or mysterious. What happens on earth does not bear witness of a sovereign, benevolent or intelligent universe that has a plan. So let’s for a moment, instead of ascending up into the universe, descend down to the earth and have a look at some predictions for 2012 that does not have to do with what is “out there” – and perhaps through that gain a better understanding of who we are, where we are going and how to change our Destiny.
The end of the Kyoto protocol in 2012
The Kyoto protocol was created in 1997 when it was realized that the climate crisis (that, already before 1997 when it was written could be seen) was potentially devastating for the earth, the climate, human beings and all life that is here.
“The Kyoto Protocol is a protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC or FCCC), aimed at fighting global warming. The UNFCCC is an international environmental treaty with the goal of achieving the “stabilization of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system. The Protocol was initially adopted on 11 December 1997 in Kyoto, Japan, and entered into force on 16 February 2005. As of September 2011, 191 states have signed and ratified the protocol. “” (Wikipedia)
The basis of the protocol is that all the countries that have signed the protocol, agrees to decrease the country’s contribution to the outlet of greenhouse gasses that are potentially (and determinedly) destructive for the ozon layer. The ozon layer is a thin layer around the world that protects the earth from the UV rays projected by the sun. Without the UV protection we would most likely be fried in worst case scenario and in the best case scenario, we will see massive global warming (as we are) along with massive planetary changes, such as devastating nature catastrophes (which is also busy happening). Secondly it is predicted that the human created warming through the outlet of greenhouses cases is contributing to the global warming. This is not only threatening the life of animals and plants, but also us as humans and the planet itself.
Basically our human activity is harming the planet as a whole, through interfering with and not effectively co-existing with the natural climate. Remember that the earth is an ecosystem that is able to support itself through a collective collaboration between all life-forms, from little ants in the African desert to huge thunderclouds and rainforests. All life-forms are able to collaborate and ensure the earth thrives for what is best for all, except us humans.
Lots of huge meetings between the world leaders has been held about the Kyoto agreement and in 2011 Canada pulled itself out of the agreement. The US has not been complying with the agreement at all. In 2012 on December 31 the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol ends. So what is going to happen on the 31. December 2012 when the commitment period ends? Does it even matter if the world’s biggest nations and those that are responsible for the largest portion of outlet of greenhouse gasses do not take responsibility?
The Dark Side of the Kyoto agreement
This entire point is reflecting us back to ourselves, humanity. Because the nation states are us, the climate is us, the Kyoto agreement is an example of how we make half-assed agreements to change and then don’t or create backdoors to slip silently out of our commitments, so that we can continue living as though our actions had no consequences.
Each of us, participate in this every day in our own lives. Huge factories are creating cars, weapons, toys and furniture for the pleasure of the consumer-citizen along with the creation of traffic and thousands of people driving SUV’s so that they can feel safe and boost their egos or who’s houses are lit with electrical appliances to the point where even from outer space it looks like the entire earth is on fire.
So how can we let our lives sit in the hands of politicians and lobbyists that are given mandate BY US to make decisions on behalf of all of us, while blaming them for making such decisions, when all they are doing is serving the (self)interest of mankind – to keep consuming the earth and all that is here, until we burst into flames and crumble like a punctured crème brulé in an overpriced French restaurant?
And are we willing to give that up? And for what?
What does it take for us to be willing to stop what we are doing, to stop creating back doors to slip out of, to stop creating mental realities to escape into, to stop creating conspiracy theories about who is doing what to whom and how?
The responsibility lies in each of our hands and in the togetherness we create through our living together in and as this world and reality. The solution lies in the soil beneath our very feet and not in some fantasy reality in the sky high above.
It is easy to dream away into outer space and to imagine a solution where we can conveniently float away, leaving a scorched earth behind to wither and die as though it was just another piece of junk cast aside on our journey on the highway through the universe.
If we really want a ride of a life time, if we really want to see a universe of wonder and peace and to live adventurously in oneness with all that is here – we remain on earth, we get our feet back on the ground and our heads out of the sky and we turn our eyes to what is going on right in front of our noses.
