And yet, once back from the hike, the low tides churning up as the tide shifts toward the rising tide, the news is never ending. The insanity of the West, the insanity of the lies, more lies and black magic lies of the US media, as well as the zombies walking the streets and even hitting the king tide Devil’s Churn, hoping 2023 will be brought in with booze, football, firecrackers. That the world will be a better world.

I challenge the reader to tell me — my 18th birthday, 1975, being the starting point — when a new year from 1975 to 2022 was a better year. Be careful to look at history, the world’s history, all the completely rotten politicians, the rotting policies, the complete slide of the American worker, and the incredible lightness of better dying with chemistry?

After adjusting for inflation, however, today’s average hourly wage has just about the same purchasing power it did in 1978, following a long slide in the 1980s and early 1990s and bumpy, inconsistent growth since then. In fact, in real terms average hourly earnings peaked more than 45 years ago: The $4.03-an-hour rate recorded in January 1973 had the same purchasing power that $23.68 would today.

Those king tides are a time to reflect upon what the average ocean level will be in 10, 20 or 30 years for now. Call it ocean expansion or ocean rise, but it is happening, even as we watch the celebrity worthless ones gain more and more money and media power; as the space race continues at break-neck speed for no results, i.e. better crops, better cities, better health care, better durable goods, better politics, better education, better mind care, better food and farming, better resilience, better global cooperation to increase the quality of life for all, as well as keeping ecosystems hardy, strong and vibrant.

Even if world manages to limit global warming to 2°C — the target number for current climate negotiations — sea levels may still rise at least 6 meters (20 feet) above their current heights, radically reshaping the world’s coastline and affecting millions in the process.

That finding comes from a new paper published on Thursday in Science that shows how high sea levels rose the last time carbon dioxide levels were this high.

Yet, oh yet, the news in a slice of today’s minute covers the most obscene stories:

Why restaurant chains are investing in robots and what it means for workers

2022 marked the end of cheap mortgages and now the housing market has turned icy cold

James Cameron Cut Out 10 Minutes of ‘Avatar 2’ Gun Violence Because It Made His Stomach Sick: ‘I Don’t Want to Fetishize Guns’ Anymore

CEOs from Elon Musk to Jamie Dimon fought to bring workers back to the office in 2022. Here’s who won—and who lost—the great return-to-office war

It is insanity what captures the “news” aggregators, the mainstream un-News, and what propaganda is fed 24/7/nanosecond daily: Lies, complete reversal of the truth, sick stories, propaganda, up is down, lies are truth.

Ukraine is losing. Amazing how weird the stories get about Putin, the people of Russia. Very very weird. Cold, death, blizzards, etc. Consuming any of this stuff will turn a steel stomach into a hissing haggis.

Get on with arming yourself against this perversion. Truth:

Screw it. Back to the King TIdes. Nature. Eighty mile an hour winds, and blood gulls and crows managing to fly.

Amazing nature, and the amazing stupidity of Apes with Nuke Missiles:
