EXTRACTS FROM THE BOOK
"GLOBAL WARMING - THE FINAL
Sunday, February 14, 2027: I am not
completely sure why I am writing this report, or
who will ever read it, but I feel compelled to do
so in the hope that it may have some future value.
I suspect that many others before me have undertaken
such a task, only to have their efforts lost over
a period of time, or destroyed in the very event
they chose to write about.
My name is Richard, the only son of
Michael Westgate. Unfortunately, my father died
when I was just 15 years old (at the age of 58)
and I never really had a chance to get to know him
as well as I would have liked. According to my mother,
he also had a daughter from his second marriage
(he was married three times), and if she has survived
the events of the last few years, she would be around
33 years of age by now. I have tried to trace my
half sister many times, but have accepted that this
may be an impossible task now.
Sadly, my father suffered from Diabetes
and the last two years of his life were especially
difficult, as he was forced to accept the ever growing
limitations the disease brought to his lifestyle.
He was a proud man who was uncomfortable with the
idea of being dependent on others and had always
lived his life to the full. He was perhaps obsessed
with the idea of staying young and this may account
for his interest in younger women. My mother was
24 years younger than my father when they met, and
his last wife 20 years his junior. It would seem
that his last marriage left many scars and this
may account for the reason why he never married
Unfortunately, because of his work
and my studies (I was educated in a special school
300 miles from where my parents lived), there were
many times when we didn't see each other for almost
a year, but I was able to read some of the work
that he recorded on computer discs, and this gave
me a much better insight into how my father thought.
It was perhaps easy to see why some
people saw my father as something of a dreamer,
as his views were a little too futuristic for his
time. I like to think of him as a man of vision,
a man who saw our future and had the courage to
share his thoughts with others. Unfortunately, for
whatever reason, his words went unheard. Maybe,
it is more for my father that I write this report,
in the hope he will finally receive the recognition
he so richly deserves.
My report begins in the past, and
is almost entirely based on information I have retrieved
from articles my father wrote back in 2004-2005.
Following his death, I continued to make notes of
events that affected me personally, or I considered
of importance globally.
It would seem that our current problem
became most noticeable around the year 1987, when
space probes recorded increased temperatures on
almost all of the planets in our solar system, indicating
for the first time that the "global warming"
we were experiencing, was not just the result of
man-made pollution, or some climatic trend, but
something much more sinister and serious.
Pluto was just one example. As the
planet passed in front of a distant star in July
2002, it was possible to compare data with a previous
event in 1988. Observers discovered that the planet's
thin atmosphere had cooled over the 14 year period
(which is what you would expect as it moves further
from the Sun), but they noticed that the surface
was actually getting warmer.
The Sun showed a higher degree of
activity in the last fifty years than it had in
more than one thousand years previously. Venus became
much brighter, with dramatic atmospheric changes
in a period of less than thirty years. The ice caps
on Mars began to disappear and huge storms developed.
The plasma clouds of Jupiter, the largest planet
in our system, showed an increase in brightness,
as did Uranus and Neptune. Saturn too revealed dramatic
changes and these occurred over a very short time
Clearly, some of the governments (mainly the US
government), came to accept that "outside"
forces were indeed responsible for the ever increasing
temperatures, but never made this public knowledge.
It is perhaps understandable that this was kept
a secret, as knowing the truth could have only made
the matter worse. However, with hindsight, this
information should have been shared with a much
wider number of people and maybe we would have been
better prepared today.
The internet, during my father's time,
was at its peak and information flowed freely around
the world. It was not surprising of course, that
with so little "official" information
available, many of the stories written were wildly
off the mark and labeled "conspiracy theories".
However, a small number, whether by accident or
design, managed to touch on the truth, but these
were kept from the public eye as much as possible
and ridiculed frequently, to reduce any credibility
they may have attracted.
One such story referred to something
called "Chemtrails", an early attempt
to protect us from the harmful and invisible cosmic
rays that were beating down on our planet. These
started appearing shortly after the space probes
discovered the increased temperatures in our solar
system, and were quite quickly noticed by some members
of the public afterwards. People became curious
when they saw planes apparently "cloud seeding"
and watched as beautiful blue skies vanished within
a matter of hours. The white trails left by the
planes didn't disappear as people expected, unlike
the trails usually left by normal jets, and they
expanded to eventually cover the entire sky. Planes
were seen making criss-cross lines across the skies
all day long, stopping just long enough to refuel,
before returning to their task.
Eventually, samples from the trails
were obtained and found to contain certain chemicals
(hence the name Chemtrails), these chemicals were
metallic in nature (aluminium and barium compounds).
It was my father who first realized that the Chemtrails
were designed to reflect cosmic rays, although the
popular belief at the time was that they were attempts
to control the weather and may have some military
use, a weather weapon of some sort.
In July 2004 we received our first
"official" indication that governments
were indeed aware of our real problem, when a person
in the Federal German Parliament went on record
to say that experiments of various kinds were being
carried out in the Earth's atmosphere in order to
cure the "symptoms" and this was in effect
the reason why very little effort was being made
to reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout the
world. She was the only "high profile"
person to speak out on the subject at the time.
The solar system is full of cosmic
microwaves, these have existed from the beginning
of time. Most are of such low levels that they are
harmless, but we are all aware of how powerful they
can be. Imagine the cosmic microwaves in the same
way as a household microwave oven. All electromagnetic
energy can be characterized as waves with a specific
wavelength and frequency distributed over a continuous
range known as the electromagnetic spectrum. Microwaves
(short waves or high frequency radio waves) are
the shortest of radio waves, they are found in the
non-ionizing portion of the energy spectrum, between
radio waves and visible light. "Non-ionizing"
means that microwaves do not detach charged particles
and produce atoms and can therefore safely produce
heat and not cause food to become radioactive. We
also know the effects of placing a metallic substance
(like aluminium foil for example) in the oven and
switching it on. The sparks seen are the microwaves
being reflected off the metal foil. The same principle
was applied to Chemtrails, an attempt to reflect
some, or all, of the cosmic rays back into space.
This was our first sign of what was
to come, our planet effectively being placed in
a microwave oven and heated up. As the microwaves
became stronger, the more quickly the so called
"Global Warming" effect developed, our
ice melted faster and the seas started to rise.
Could it be that our planet had entered
an area that was like a huge microwave oven? If
it had, were these energy waves heating up the planets
in our solar system in much the same way food is
heated in the oven. One scientist believed that
our Solar System was subjected to a high level of
cosmic rays every 26,000 years or so, and that this
was already overdue. Were we experiencing some preliminary
effects of this event? And was there worse to come?
Although news reports of rising sea
levels became more frequent by the year 2006, this
event had begun much earlier. Scientists estimated
that levels had already increased by around 20 inches
during the 20th century, but it was the rapid acceleration
that really brought the problem to the attention
of a much wider audience.
In an attempt to avoid panic, governments
persuaded some scientists to issue statements claiming
that the increased temperatures and rising sea levels
were normal and that this was an event that our
planet had witnessed many times before. It was of
course true that our planet had been through many
climatic changes in its history and this was one
of those warmer periods. However, records showed
that the warm period we were going through should
have ended many years earlier, and the temperatures
we were seeing were much higher than usual.
For many years, governments had managed
to keep a lid on the problem by either remaining
silent, or allowing others to provide less than
accurate reports, but this task became increasingly
more difficult to maintain as the evidence against
their argument grew.
Initially, the US government kept
much of the information on "Global Warming"
to themselves, but it became apparent that they
would be unable to fight this battle alone and slowly
invited leaders of other countries to make a contribution.
Many people were surprised that the US government
did not join the Kyoto Protocol at the time, an
idea presented by an organization called the United
Nations, designed to reduce man-made pollutants.
The US obviously realized that this would have little
or no effect on the problem we faced, and could
actually add to the problem, by creating economic
hardship. So they offered an alternative to the
Kyoto Protocol, to give the impression that they
were concerned about pollution, but this of course
provided no serious solution.
It was a frustrating time for the
scientists who attempted to provide the truth about
Global Warming and its effects, assuming that governments
were not aware of the full extent of the problem.
But despite every attempt to keep the real reason
for Global Warming a secret, some things simply
could not be hidden from public eyes anymore.
One such event was the ever decreasing
ice cap that covered Greenland, which had been melting
under the increased temperatures. This had begun
at a fairly slow (but still worrying) rate, but
attracted much more attention when that rate tripled
by the end of 2005. There was no question now that
things were getting very serious and almost everyone
agreed that a complete melting of Greenland's ice
cap could raise sea levels by as much as 21 feet.
Although, if this happened on a global scale, the
figure could reach a staggering 300 feet or more,
as it did some millions of years ago.
Naturally, no one expected that this
would happen, but is was interesting to note that
many initial estimates, claiming that such an event
would take thousands of years to happen, were later
revised to "hundreds" of years and some
much sooner. My father was one of only a few who
believed that the sea levels would rise much more
rapidly and that the event would happen in approximately
20-25 years (this estimate was found in one of his
articles written in 2005).
Although governments had begun to
take the cosmic threat more seriously now, it was
perhaps inevitable that greed and power would also
raise its ugly head. Naturally, they knew what to
expect if the land sunk almost 21 feet into the
sea, and realized that "energy" would
play an important part in any survival plans. Unfortunately,
the energy that they sought (oil) was in the wrong
hands (from the West's point of view) and it became
almost a race to take control of as many oil producing
countries as possible. Oil was an essential ingredient
for running machinery, machines that provided light,
transport and the means to help construct dwellings
that would be more suitable in the world to come.
It was sad that even with the planet
facing a catastrophe of biblical proportions, leaders
of so called civilized countries (like the US, Britain
and many European countries) still felt it necessary
to maintain control, rather than work together for
the good of all. This decision delayed our preparation
for the future and almost certainly cost the lives
of millions of people as a result.
By the beginning of 2008 it became
obvious to almost everyone that the sea level was
continuing to rise at an ever increasing rate and
there seemed to be no way of stopping this. Governments
kept on trying to develop some kind of atmospheric
shield for the planet, but the task was beyond our
capabilities at the time. Dropping aluminium particles
in the sky, everyday, and on a worldwide basis,
was just impossible and offered no real guarantees.
A "Space Ring" was suggested in one journal
to shade the tropics and moderate climate extremes,
creating an artificial ring of small particles or
spacecrafts around Earth. The power of scattering
sunlight has been illustrated naturally, the journal
quoted. Volcanic eruptions, such as that of Mt.
Pinatubo in 1991, pumped aerosols into the atmosphere
and cooled the global climate by about a degree.
Other researchers have suggested such schemes as
adding metallic dust to smoke stacks, to flood the
atmosphere and reflect more sunlight back into space.
Obviously, some alternative plan was called for
and many other ideas were put forward. Some considered
building huge walls around cities to protect them
from the water, but such a colossal task would take
many years to complete and would only protect a
relatively small number of people. No one really
knew how long the increased sea levels would last
and whether such a construction would stand the
test of time.
Another suggestion, which seemed practical
but not without dangers, was to build underground
cities. The construction would be equally difficult,
but it would make more use of the land that was
lost, rather than trying to squeeze people into
specially protected areas on dry land.
Of course, the most popular idea of
all was moving people onto higher ground. Whilst
this seemed liked a simple solution to the problem,
people quickly began to realize that whilst 6.5
billion people might physically fit into such an
area, there was no way sufficient food and water
could be produced to feed them all. This created
a new worry for the public, if sea levels were to
rise as predicted and there was no place for everyone,
who would have the right to live in the safe regions?
Accepting that this would indeed be
a problem and something that should be addressed
immediately, rather than later, governments around
the world agreed on the introduction of a new birth
law. Citizens were encouraged with financial incentives
to have fewer children and slogans like "One
World, One Child" were used to help make the
point. Unfortunately, like many plans connected
with birth control, it didn't really produce the
desired effect and a stricter option would appear
some years later.
It was noticeable that some people
had already started considering living on higher
ground and sales for land thirty feet above sea
level were fetching record prices. Many of the plots
of land that were sold were too small for growing
sufficient crops, had no means of providing fresh
water and were purchased by people who had no idea
about self sufficiency. Sales of boats (especially
house boats) also increased, but it was uncertain
what the new "mariners" expected to gain
from this. Perhaps some people believed that an
event that had taken more than one hundred years
to develop might suddenly disappear after a few
months and everything would return to normal.
In the last two years, sea levels
had increased by a further two inches and scientists
tried desperately to forecast future rates, but
without fully understanding the effects of the cosmic
rays and no historical data as a reference, it really
was an impossible task and predictions varied immensely.
Some scientists still clung onto the
hope that the warming was coming to an end and referred
to a fall in temperatures recorded in Northwestern
Europe. Unfortunately, this was due to the melting
of Greenland's glaciers on the eastern coast, pushing
fresh water into the sea. This had the effect of
blocking off warmer waters that flowed there on
the Gulf Stream, a phenomenon that had kept this
part of Europe several degrees higher than normally
would be expected. This event was expected and predicted
by the majority of scientists, but would have no
real effect on the overall situation.
However, as a result of the "blocking"
effect caused by the fresh water entering the sea
from Greenland's melting glaciers, the Gulf Stream
was affected by this change. As the warmer waters
traveled up to Northwestern Europe, they would normally
be cooled before returning to their point of origin.
As this cooling process no longer functioned in
the same way, sea temperatures in the Gulf rose
and this increased the number, and strength, of
the hurricanes in that region. Eventually, as the
fresh water increased, this process would cease
to function completely.
Even if things had been normal, the
prospect of a cooler Britain did not worry my father.
Although he was born there, he had spent the last
sixteen years living in and around Russia (where
I was born), and although he never liked the cold
weather, he had got used to living in extreme conditions.
At that time the winters could see temperatures
of minus 30 degrees, and summers with temperatures
of more than 30 degrees plus! But even here the
changes were being noticed, the winters became less
harsh and produced smaller amounts of snow, and
the summers became unbearably hot, creating new
records almost every year.
The prospect of a global catastrophe
didn't worry the average Russian in quite the same
way it did their western counterparts, and like
any other potential problem, you would hear the
standard phrase of "??? ????? ??????"
(everything will be OK). These words were more popular
than a Coca-Cola slogan and one radio station used
to repeat them at least a thousand times a day,
they even made a song about it.
Russian's have had their fair share
of hardships over the years. Millions died in the
Second World War and they had to suffer 70 years
of communism. It was perhaps no wonder that many
found it necessary to escape these difficult times
with the help of a bottle of vodka (or two).
Russia was fortunate in many ways,
in that it was such a large country. Because of
the heavy losses during the Second World War, the
population levels were not that high and although
there was a great deal of flat land, there was also
sufficient high ground to accommodate everyone.
They also had huge natural resources and were more
than capable of surviving the initial difficulties,
and if things got really bad, there was always the
Like my father, I remained in Russia
(my mother was Russian) and this decision was to
pay dividends in later years. I did visit England
a few times, but could easily see why my father
had chosen Russia as his home for so many years.
As we moved into 2010, sea levels
had increased by a further 5 inches, but this rate
had doubled by the middle of 2012, making a rise
of 17 inches in just six years.
Many areas were already seeing the
effects of flooding and farms close to rivers had
started to lose crops. Farmers had to watch helplessly
as areas of their land started to resemble paddy
fields. Coastal homes slowly started to empty as
the sea raced towards their doors, many had to be
abandoned at short notice during storms, as the
water surged even further inland.
Countries like Holland were facing
a crisis and would shortly expect to see their country
completely swallowed up by the sea. Plans were drawn
up to organize a total evacuation, with Britain
and neighbouring countries offering help in finding
them new homes. Unfortunately, this could be nothing
more than a temporary solution, as the increasing
sea levels would also affect them as well in time.
With the threat of more crops being
lost and some products becoming harder to buy, prices
began to increase as demand stretched supplies.
Many people had still not fully accepted the real
danger facing them and farmers were producing crops
that were no longer considered "essential".
This would all change in the following year as governments
took much stronger control of the farming industry
and started to consider a rationing system for certain
Even though the worst was still to
come, the world economy was already showing signs
of collapse. Tourism was one of the first areas
to come under pressure, with many beaches shrinking,
resorts flooded and of course people saving their
money for an unknown future. Unemployment rose to
new highs and companies selling luxury goods steadily
began to close.
There was a brief glimmer of hope for the world
when the US announced that a combined effort was
to be made in October 2012 to create a shield for
the planet. A different system had been designed
to spray "new" chemicals into the atmosphere
and every country had agreed to take part in this
experiment. Whilst they hoped it would halt the
heating process, at worst it might slow it down
and buy the planet a little more time. They hoped
to maintain this effort for a period of at least
two years, but warned that the chemicals used could
create new problems in respect of health. Those
most at risk would be the elderly and very young
This decision caused some debate as
a few felt that this may be an attempt to reduce
the size of the population in readiness for the
future. However, the deaths that the chemicals were
likely to cause wouldn't really help in that respect.
By October 2013, one year into the
experiment, sea levels had risen another 7 inches,
but this was about fifty percent less than expected
and for the first time in years there was some optimism.
Unfortunately, this latest increase had brought
the total rise in sea levels to two feet in the
last seven years.
It was difficult for the public to
know exactly what affect the chemical spraying was
having on the population, as news of this was hardly
ever published. But I guess people were not too
worried about the casualties if the future could
Farm land continued to be lost and
a strict rationing system was employed in much the
same way as it was during the Second World War.
Naturally, some items were available on the "Black
Market" for those who could afford it, but
it was uncertain how long money would be of use
in the future.
