The Climate Emergency Coalition is launching a blog series, “A Different Kind of Apocalypse,” using “Apocalypse” in the sense of seeing something previously hidden.
Commonly, the “Apocalypse” is thought of as the final cosmic showdown between good and evil. In the Book of Revelation, written 2,000 years ago, the forces of good are prophesied to finally overcome the forces of evil. Over the centuries, a library of books predicting the soon-coming Apocalypse, put out by thousands of Biblical interpreters, have come and gone.
But, as yet there has been no showdown, final or otherwise.
However, a new type of Apocalypse is brewing, and its several intertwined denouements are being revealed. This series will pull back the curtain of some of those hidden “Revelations” – that is, surprising or unseen aspects of our current situation.
Each blog in the series will showcase various denouements awaiting “Revelation”, such as energy, food, fertilizer, methane, and plastic.
Showcases of the Apocalypse are visible if one can pierce the fog of delusions and contradictions that hold the world together, now slowly unraveling. The pieces of this Apocalypse are myriad and complex, as one might expect given how riven our world is, particularly the USA, with non-fact-based assumptions, beliefs, and superstitions.
(Facts, as used here means reliable-and-valid reality-based occurrences.)
To uncover this complex Apocalypse, first one must know in which direction to look to find its parts and meanings. In this series, the Climate Emergency Coalition will make predictions and suggest sources to find revelations.
