30 Statistics About Americans Under The Age Of 30 That Will Blow Your Mind

Young People - Photo by Jefferson liffeyWhy are young people in America so frustrated these days?  You are about to find out.  Most young adults started out having faith in the system.  They worked hard, they got good grades, they stayed out of trouble and many of them went on to college.  But when their educations where over, they discovered that the good jobs that they had been promised were not waiting for them at the end of the rainbow.  Even in the midst of this so-called "economic recovery", the full-time employment rate for Americans under the age of 30 continues to fall.  And incomes for that age group continue to fall as well.  At the same time, young adults are dealing with record levels of student loan debt.  As a result, more young Americans than ever are putting off getting married and having families, and more of them than ever are moving back in with their parents.

It can be absolutely soul crushing when you discover that the "bright future" that the system had been promising you for so many years turns out to be a lie.  A lot of young people ultimately give up on the system and many of them end up just kind of drifting aimlessly through life.  The following is an example from a recent Wall Street Journal article...

James Roy, 26, has spent the past six years paying off $14,000 in student loans for two years of college by skating from job to job. Now working as a supervisor for a coffee shop in the Chicago suburb of St. Charles, Ill., Mr. Roy describes his outlook as "kind of grim."

"It seems to me that if you went to college and took on student debt, there used to be greater assurance that you could pay it off with a good job," said the Colorado native, who majored in English before dropping out. "But now, for people living in this economy and in our age group, it's a rough deal."

Young adults as a group have been experiencing a tremendous amount of economic pain in recent years.  The following are 30 statistics about Americans under the age of 30 that will blow your mind...

#1 The labor force participation rate for men in the 18 to 24 year old age bracket is at an all-time low.

#2 The ratio of what men in the 18 to 29 year old age bracket are earning compared to the general population is at an all-time low.

#3 Only about a third of all adults in their early 20s are working a full-time job.

#4 For the entire 18 to 29 year old age bracket, the full-time employment rate continues to fall.  In June 2012, 47 percent of that entire age group had a full-time job.  One year later, in June 2013, only 43.6 percent of that entire age group had a full-time job.

#5 Back in the year 2000, 80 percent of men in their late 20s had a full-time job.  Today, only 65 percent do.

#6 In 2007, the unemployment rate for the 20 to 29 year old age bracket was about 6.5 percent.  Today, the unemployment rate for that same age group is about 13 percent.

#7 American families that have a head of household that is under the age of 30 have a poverty rate of 37 percent.

#8 During 2012, young adults under the age of 30 accounted for 23 percent of the workforce, but they accounted for a whopping 36 percent of the unemployed.

#9 During 2011, 53 percent of all Americans with a bachelor’s degree under the age of 25 were either unemployed or underemployed.

#10 At this point about half of all recent college graduates are working jobs that do not even require a college degree.

#11 The number of Americans in the 16 to 29 year old age bracket with a job declined by 18 percent between 2000 and 2010.

#12 According to one survey, 82 percent of all Americans believe that it is harder for young adults to find jobs today than it was for their parents to find jobs.

#13 Incomes for U.S. households led by someone between the ages of 25 and 34 have fallen by about 12 percent after you adjust for inflation since the year 2000.

#14 In 1984, the median net worth of households led by someone 65 or older was 10 times larger than the median net worth of households led by someone 35 or younger.  Today, the median net worth of households led by someone 65 or older is 47 times larger than the median net worth of households led by someone 35 or younger.

#15 In 2011, SAT scores for young men were the worst that they had been in 40 years.

#16 Incredibly, approximately two-thirds of all college students graduate with student loans.

#17 According to the Federal Reserve, the total amount of student loan debt has risen by 275 percent since 2003.

#18 In America today, 40 percent of all households that are led by someone under the age of 35 are paying off student loan debt.  Back in 1989, that figure was below 20 percent.

#19 The total amount of student loan debt in the United States now exceeds the total amount of credit card debt in the United States.

#20 According to the U.S. Department of Education, 11 percent of all student loans are at least 90 days delinquent.

#21 The student loan default rate in the United States has nearly doubled since 2005.

#22 One survey found that 70% of all college graduates wish that they had spent more time preparing for the "real world" while they were still in college.

#23 In the United States today, there are more than 100,000 janitors that have college degrees.

#24 In the United States today, 317,000 waiters and waitresses have college degrees.

#25 Today, an all-time low 44.2 percent of all Americans between the ages of 25 and 34 are married.

#26 According to the Pew Research Center, 57 percent of all Americans in the 18 to 24 year old age bracket lived with their parents during 2012.

#27 One poll discovered that 29 percent of all Americans in the 25 to 34 year old age bracket are still living with their parents.

#28 Young men are nearly twice as likely to live with their parents as young women the same age are.

#29 Overall, approximately 25 million American adults are living with their parents according to Time Magazine.

#30 Young Americans are becoming increasingly frustrated that previous generations have saddled them with a nearly 17 trillion dollar national debt that they are expected to make payments on for the rest of their lives.

And this trend is not just limited to the United States.  As I have written about frequently, unemployment rates for young adults throughout Europe have been soaring to unprecedented heights.  For example, the unemployment rate for those under the age of 25 in Italy has now reached 40.1 percent.

Simon Black of the Sovereign Man blog discussed this global trend in a recent article on his website...

Youth unemployment rates in these countries are upwards of 40% to nearly 70%. The most recent figures published by the Italian government show yet another record high in youth unemployment.

An entire generation is now coming of age without being able to leave the nest or have any prospect of earning a decent wage in their home country.

This underscores an important point that I’ve been writing about for a long time: young people in particular get the sharp end of the stick.

They’re the last to be hired, the first to be fired, the first to be sent off to fight and die in foreign lands, and the first to have their benefits cut.

And if they’re ever lucky enough to find meaningful employment, they can count on working their entire lives to pay down the debts of previous generations through higher and higher taxes.

But when it comes time to collect… finally… those benefits won’t be there for them.

Meanwhile, the overall economy continues to get even weaker.

In the United States, Gallup's daily economic confidence index is now the lowest that it has been in more than a year.

For young people that are in high school or college right now, the future does not look bright.  In fact, this is probably as good as the U.S. economy is going to get.  It is probably only going to be downhill from here.

The system is failing, and young people are going to become even angrier and even more frustrated.

So what will that mean for our future?

    Oboma (Barry Sorento) sounded to American so he changed it to a Muzlim name. They have NO room to complain they voted for him, cry to the socialist in office…. Or see if they can get foodstamps/hud/welfare with the rest of the losers.

  • crazyidiot

    You know I could say a lot about this issue. I mean I am not saying I have thought this all through completely, but it does seem that all these problems are basically because “WE WORSHIP MONEY AS GOD.” I mean really just get rid of money altogether. How many problems would that solve? All of them, unless it started the end.

    • Leon

      you are an idiot. Money is the representation of labor. Unless you are talking about the fiat paper then you got no idea what you are talking about.

      The reason “money” was made was because not everybody wanted to do farming and it allowed people to exchange goods and services.

      • ian

        Actually crazyidiot is not an idiot. The monetary system needs to be replaced.

        • Leon

          Ian. If you got no idea what you are talking about please don’t make a fool out of yourself.

          Read what he wrote.

          WE WORSHIP MONEY AS GOD.” I mean really just get rid of money altogether.

          Now that being said, you probably don’t know what “money” is. I don’t disagree that the monetary system needs to be replaced as it has been in history but he’s talking about removing money all together which is how we exchange goods and service I’m not talking about the monetary system.

          • Leon

            BTW he thinks money is the problem of the world. It’s not.

            The problem of the world is people that don’t want to work but want to live an amazing life. Laziness is the problem of the world.

            Borrowing hard work from other people to live in the now instead of the future.

            Money has nothing to do with it. It’s just those that don’t want to work that causes the money to be worth less.

          • Jimbo

            You are scathing in your response to a concept that you don’t understand. That would make you an idiot.

          • Leon

            lol you know why 80% of the people are employees then a few % are business owners then 1% is rich?

            If you don’t understand it then you’re just merely an employee. You have no idea about money, exchange, and other stuff that are real in this world.

    You watch and see if Obama doesn’t throw in the towel and drop the keys to America on the desk of the U.N.’s secretary General.
    I seen that coming when Obama was seen dropping the gavel at the UN general assembly a couple of years ago.

  • Young American Expat

    Thanks! I speak English, Spanish, Arabic, Russian, Korean and Latin (useless outside the science and religious fields but still a language all the same). And you are correct in your observation of engineering and teaching being very successful right now, as I noticed the same thing. That is why I like Asia right now. Until you have seen just how low of a base (schooling, infrastructure, etc) most of Asia is rising from, you begin to realize this is where the economic action of the future is (exception being Africa, provided that they are willing to overcome their serious problems of tribalism). As schooling levels rise, all sectors of the economy will go on overdrive and force GDP upwards and the two biggest inflows of capital and focus will be teaching and engineering; teaching to get everyone up to speed, engineering to build and grow each country’s infrastructure and business needs/demands. So as much I didn’t want to, I made the switch. So over time I hope to acquire more skills and whatnot to eventually head back to my chosen field, though admittedly I am open to more possibilities than I was before. This is why I like Asia more than America right now: The elites take their share(corruption, sandals, and monopolies, etc) sure just like in the US, but they are all united in their vision of wanting their individual country to rise and be stronger economically and culturally by any and all means possible. The US elites by contrast are focused on their individual portion of the economic pie and are not really focused on the greater picture, thus leaving people like me with no chance to even try to compete let alone be successful. And all I want is the chance. At least over here in Asia I get the chance to do that, thus the move and the wanting to stay long term. Asia has chosen to copy what America did in the past and make it bigger. America on the other hand has decided to abandon that working formula. The why doesn’t really matter, it is the fact that it has already happened and has accelerated.

      Young American Expat: you were smart to learn several foreign languages (hablo español, italiano y francés, aunque hablo francés con imperfecciónes). I’ve found that people who speak more than one language tend to have a broader perspective. As far as the elites in paises asiaticos, that sort of ties into something Alex Jones and Chris Hedges were recently saying about the BRA’s elites of 2013 compared to American elites of the past. The robber barons of 50 or 60 years ago saw the need for a middle class, whereas the BRA elites of 2013 will destroy society at all levels. And when the BRA ends up being as violent and unstable as Honduras and rivers of blood are flowing through the streets, you’ll be glad you escaped this rotting Third World hellhole.

  • Joseph E Fasciani

    I’ll be 71 next February and I’ve read the comments below before my writing here. Aside from the troll or two, nearly all were aware, intelligent, and could articulate what the problems are, their origins, and in a few cases, their cure, so to speak, as if there can ever be a cure for predatory crony capitalism and banksters, outside of life in prison.

    At age 19.5 yrs in 1963, I started self-employment in my own landscape maintenance and design/build business in the Oakland-East Bay area. By 1969 I’d become prosperous, earning US$ 6/hr, buying French wine by the case and w/a variety of golden futures ahead of me, just pick and choose. So I did: I immigrated to BC, Canada and never looked back.

    The USSA [not a typo] was too racist, violent, socially warped and far too war-prone for me to want to have a family and raise children in it, so my new wife and I left. It was the single best act of my life; I encourage all others to do the same.

    I was not a draft-dodger; when I appeared for induction my status was changed to 1-Y, due to a non-operable chronic medical condition. Within two years of that point I saw there was nothing I could ever do that would be meaningful to correct the present crisis in the time I had left in my life, so finding a better place to have a family became my first priority. Nothing’s changed in the fifty years since, in fact, it’s gotten much, much worse.

    I’m the first-born in the USSA of immigrant parents. They came as refugees from fascism, and wanted nothing of the old world to encumber them. They Anglo-cised us so much they never spoke Italian at home, so I ended by taking German in HS, as I’d learned Yiddish from my father’s business partners in their plumbing & heating business.

    I share all this not because my ego needs expansion, but to show younger people that we older folks had the same dreams and hopes as you; when we found ourselves in an era whose politico-social strictures were such that the destruction of human development had been made the over-riding matrix in our society, then self-preservation is the first and last refuge of patriots. I love my country, but I fear its government.

    Canada was very good to us: I had three children who are drug-free, positive-contributing citizens who will have healthy children when their time comes, just as they were raised. You need to do the same for yourself first, and then your children. No one else can do it for you; NEVER rely on the gubbmint to help you w/o your paying for it at some point. It may sound odd, but there are no free breakfasts, lunches, or dinners. None.

    The Three Laws of Thermodynamics rule all life on planet Earth, which is composed of closed systems sustained by the sun, and this simple fact alone if understood by HS students before graduation would ensure a better life for them and their society. It’s clear that 98% of all politicians don’t ‘get it,’ so we will all suffer until a majority do, and sensibility enters political and social life.

    Until then, your first duty is to devise a healthy lifestyle for yourself, then your partner and family, and then you are ready to do something for your country. Good luck in all endeavours, and above all, follow your heart!

    • Young American Expat

      Excellent response sir! My sentiments exactly.

      Very shortsighted. It is beyond me how people can justify surrender and retreat. You were not born an American to abandon her in time of need. It was a privilege beyond the power of words to express to be born in America. God placed you here to stand and fight. There is nothing admirable about fleeing the battle. That you come back here as America approaches her darkest hour and counsel retreat again, and make it look like a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, you ought to be ashamed of yourself. And the Lord God will tell you that right to your face when the time comes. You can be sure of it. Aid and comfort to the enemy is what you are providing.

  • therooster

    Young Americans will be the segment of society to eventually see that gold (precious metals, actually) is a form of debt-free currency that purges existing debt (fiat) right out of circulation. It’s gold’s time to shine as a currency thanks to the fact that it has overcome its historical problem of illiquidy, in large part due to the fact that it is now free to float in trade value. Gold purges debt but the monetary application/ implementation, because of the real-time factor, must come from the grass roots, bottom-up. This process must come from the market. It cannot be a top-down process which is a blind spot for most. We tend to default to top-down thinking.

  • colin

    I read today that a Filipino newspaper from the Philippines has analyzed what is happening in our country. Their conclusion is that we have a party that simply refuses to believe that the US is run by a black man.

    We are watching the inevitable self suicide of the world’s economy by a group who are fanatic and have for the better part of a year refused to negotiate. I am speaking here about the House Republicans, who came together under the banner of the Williamsburg Accord to declare a strike against the nation. They made a decision not to work with the President.

    I know that many conservatives will believe what they told on the right wing blogosphere and on the right media. However, there is a small number of your people who are starting to wake up. We in the rational world have our arms open in peace and friendship, and we will take in your brothers and sisters who have come to their senses.

    Let’s first be clear about this so-called ‘Tea Party phenomenon:’ it is
    entirely funded and promoted by Koch Industries for the purpose of
    giving the Koch Bros businesses advantages. The only reason they like
    conservative, libertarian groups is because of those groups’ willingness
    to be purchased with $.
    If the Kochs had successfully purchased
    Democratic office-holders or candidates, we would be seeing enormous
    amounts of money promoting the Democratic agenda–like Obamacare and
    immigration reform. Kochs don’t care a whit about ideology–they only
    want votes for their interests, and they are willing to pay the big $ to
    buy the people in congress.

  • Douglas M. Green

    IMO the most underreported event of the next decade will be the JUSTIFIABLE ANGER of our youth who are left with the debt, deficits and unfunded liabilities of their elders and forced to now subsidize the higher risk elder generation via Obamacare. I hope they REFUSE to pay for the bills they didn’t incur!!

    • Orange Jean

      I’m older and I hear the anger, but I don’t think it’s justifiable.

      Problem is they voted for Obama and his buddies, they continue to do that and support all these “programs”, and from what I’ve seen (working in a place where about 90% of my coworkers are in that age group) they themselves have no problem wracking up debt.

      I’ve seen time and again young people with short term jobs (1-2 years) going out and buying the biggest, fanciest car they can get and tons of new clothes. Then complaining about having to live at home and not being able to pay off their student loans and having no money. This is coming out of the mouths of babes who have landed internships in the $48K/year range.They are all optimistic, don’t think the government is going to default, don’t think the government (where we all work) is going to go bankrupt or be shut down for more than a few days… and if they had the chance they’d vote for Obama again.

      I’m NOT saying the young people who haven’t been able to find jobs or have only gotten very low paying jobs have the same mindset… but those in their cohort who’ve gotten the goodies, don’t seem to have a lick of common sense!

      Yes I’m older, but I sure never voted for Obama or anyone who supported the runaway spending or Obamacare. I pay my bills.

  • no what i mean vern?

    I happen to have a p.h.d. and can tell you it is no fun being 33, unemployed, living in the room I grew up in, and sharing a bathroom in Queens with my mom and pop. I am over 135K in student debt and won’t be able to even think about having my own place until after my parent kick the bucket and leave this place to me. I really didn’t think it would turn out this way for me. I have a 13 year old daughter my boyfriend (her father) has custody of because I don’t have my own place. I mean, REALLY americas??? Is this the best you can do for me and others like me??? REALLY???

    • Malcolm Reynolds

      The operative question is, what’s your PHD in?

      • no what i mean vern?

        Women’s Studies, why? Like is that really a big deal???

        • Malcolm Reynolds

          Honestly, I was originally going to ask – what’s your degree in, Black Women’s Studies?

          I asked because with a PHD, I knew you’d like, be under the mistaken impression that your degree is like, actually education. It’s not. You were suckered by leftism to get yourself 135K in student debt for an absolutely WORTHLESS piece of paper and I’m really sorry for you for that.

          You don’t have a PHD, you have a joke. So please, don’t ask if that’s all America has, and don’t hate America, hate the left and YOUR choices. You are responsible for yourself, not America.

          BTW, I do computer programming. I’ve got a 2 year degree and I make just under a 6 figure salary and I thank God on my knees for that.

  • GoldenEagles

    Only when you are totally confused as to what constitutes Light and what constitutes Darkness, could that be called a brilliant post. It is the spirit of the betrayal of every American ideal of bravery, courage, in the fight for freedom.

    • Gay Veteran

      when was the last time we truly fought for freedom?

  • GoldenEagles

    Those who worship the god of gold will be led down the path of self-destruction every time. The fact that you believe that you somehow made good points that address the issues I raised confirms the thesis. Those points mean nothing. Freedom means everything.

    • Nickelthrower

      If that is true then you will move out of the USA immediately as we rank pretty low on any number of “freedom scales”.

      • GoldenEagles

        I can only say that any freedom scale that places America at any other position, but at the top, is a figment of an America hating ideological agenda. America has its problems. But there is no country on the face of the earth that has the level of freedom that we have. If you want to stand your ground on your assertion, give me an example of a particular freedom that another country has, that we do not.

          • GoldenEagles

            None of those points go to the issue of the freedoms we have in America.

            In regards to the issues you raise, however, I would simply point out that this is a democracy, and the consensus you can reach on any of the tough issues we have faced since 9/11 is determined by the balance of political power at any given time, and has nothing to do with the issue of our freedom.

            The issues you raise point to actions of a nation currently divided and splintered in a time of great peril and moral confusion.

    “I dare say the communists in China and Vietnam don’t give a rat’s [***] whether their people are religious.”

    The Communist Chinese raid Christian Church groups every day and throw them in jail.

    The Communist Chinese have banned Falon Gong, and placed tens of thousands of them in prison, and allow organ harvesting from this group.

    You can find plenty of information on this. Religion is what the communists hate most. When the communists took over Russia, the first thing they did was destroy churches, and murder the clergy. When the communist Chinese took over Tibet, the first thing they did was destroy Buddhist monasteries, and kill their clergy. I am surprised that your point of view could contain such a glaring error. This is such a fundamental aspect of the issue.

    Perhaps we have found a point were you are willing to say uncle? Let’s see. Are you capable of affirming an obvious truth, and apologize for stating a glaring falsehood?

    • Gay Veteran

      The Chinese, like any other dictatorship, will oppress those who threaten the elite’s power (which is why Occupy Wall Street was beaten down in “exceptional” America).

      to quote you back: “I am surprised that your point of view could contain such a glaring error.”
      And again, your comments reek of arrogance.

      • GoldenEagles

        I pray your judgment of arrogance upon me would be somewhat mitigated when you come to understand that everything I do and say is built on the foundation of the knowledge of God’s Infinite Love for every child, you, me, and everyone, regardless of culture, nationality, race, gender, or religious affiliation, all are precious in His sight.

        Therefore, it is impossible for me to believe that I am superior to other people, because I know that I am not superior, God’s treasures are available, in unimaginable abundance to all.

        Everything I have of value comes from God. I am grateful, not prideful.

        If I am aware of a path that leads to that fountain of God’s Abundance, and others are not aware of that path, it is not arrogance that sets up the road signs which point in that direction. This is helpfulness.

        And moreover, it is not arrogance that puts those road signs back up, when they are knocked down. This is a determination unto helpfulness.

        And moreover, it is not arrogance that keeps coming back to put the road signs back up, when they are repeatedly knocked down. This is a commitment to helpfulness.

        And you should ask yourself, as long as we are on the subject, what force is it, that would knock down the road signs that point in the direction of God’s Abundance for individuals and for nations?

        This is the force of evil, that flows from demonic realms, which flow through many hearts and minds, those which have not the knowledge of the importance of shutting and sealing those inner windows and doors; those who have become pawns of that force, unwittingly perhaps, simply because they have not yet come to the place where they understand that the fresh air of heaven’s paradise, are the only breezes that are meant to flow through the temple of the individual soul, as these breezes bring the power of unassailable happiness into the life of every child, and into the life of every nation.

          “…everything I do and say is built on the foundation of the knowledge of God’s Infinite Love for every child, you, me, and everyone, regardless of culture, nationality, race, gender, or religious affiliation, all are precious in His sight….”

          Any yet “exceptional” America murders innocent people around the globe. With drones, with wars of aggression.

          • GoldenEagles

            America is in the midst of the most tangled state of moral confusion in its history. The war on terror has required extraordinary measures to keep America safe. And yes there are moral trade offs. The leadership is working day by day to make sure another 9/11 does not take place. And so the best defense, is a strong offense, being forward deployed attacking the terrorist enemy while they are still far from America’s shores. There are no simple answers to this particular conundrum, other than to say, that we would not be in this situation today, if School Prayer had not been outlawed in 1962.

    Never let it be said that it is not a great time to be an arms dealer. Major in that.

    That is also the case in Kenya many graduates are not employed.When a vacancy is created it requires 10 years experience which we don’t have.Therefore we’re left out.

    Well, that’s a genius politico for ya! What happens when his daughter marries one and they buy the house next door?

    67% of statistic are made up.

    I don’t deny that this banner, “America, the Global Guarantor of Freedom” is fraying badly. That’s the whole point of this discussion.

    The point is to understand why, and in identifying the problem, a solution can be found.

    America’s access to the resources of Divine Providence have dried up.

    We must understand why this is so. And we must understand what can be done to reverse this trend.

    I believe that the restoration of prayer in the public schools is a good solid step in the direction of reversing this trend.

    If America’s role as the guarantor of freedom is not shored up, there is no other to take our place.

    The shadow of global tyranny looms, especially when the trend of American decline is affirmed in the minds of the Americans themselves.

  • Gay Veteran

    Oh I totally agree with that. The entire point of zero interest rates and quantitative easing is to prop up the banksters and the stock market.
    And in the process screw over the rest of the 99%.

    I blame feminist for neutering the last few generations of males

    • no what i mean vern?

      I am so sure that feminists are responsible for the sorry state of american males. Give me a break, please. Women are tired of having to wear the pants as well as the skirts. Take some responsibility? maybe????

      • NCBrian

        Seriously – well said.

      • Sam Falcon

        thanks for proving my point

    This is what happens for over 15 years now in the eastern Europe, young people have to abandon their families for jobs abroad…. Shouldn’t be better like young people may stay in teir own countries and learn about their culture and than everyone will be excited when travel abroad ( and discover different cultures) but the “250″ group is over governments and they just try to have the global government. ( it may be good but till gets there many many lives will be screwed).
    good luck folks!!!

  • Abigail

    I do not blame Young American Expat from leaving America. However, (and you may call me negative) I do not believe anyone is going to have the luxury of the tactic to be able to run and hide. The whole economy is going to crash. You may disagree but the world has embraced immorality for many years. I can go into details if you want. Also, do not get me started about Islamic extremism. I do not desire everything going to hell in a hand basket. However maybe America and the world maybe the world deserves it in for many reasons. I will try to be smart, be prepared, fight to live, and trust in God.

    what this means is when the ebt peoples benefits runs out these disillusioned ones will join them in their riots and home invasion attempts to get what they need in order to survive.

  • Anne Armstrong

    All our systems are failing, not only the economic one. Humanity has gone through, and is currently going through much upheaval and suffering but the coming years will be unprecedented if you factor in the global societal instabilities, modern slavery and migration; rampant corporate, political and other forms of corruption, radicalism of all sorts, disastrous global climate changes -which are both “natural” and caused/exacerbated by mankind.

    After 9/11 there was no air traffic above the US for several days. The air pollution caused by airplanes dropped, because the planes were not flying.

    This pollution actually functioned as an inadvertent filter between the sun and the earth, blocking the sun”s rays.

    Temperatures rose within several days after all domestic flights were grounded. There was less pollution, less filtering between the sun and the earth.
    Air traffic is not natural. It has been created by mankind.
    There is also scientific evidence that the sun’s rays and solar flares are increasing.

    Put the two together.

    Think…..think….think clearly. You will also be less easy to mislead. You do not need a college degree to think. Life is the greatest teacher.

    So why don’t we see? Why do we buy into all the garbage? What holds us back from seeing and then acting?

    The solutions lie in a global change in consciousness. Waking up. Getting together. Seeing the interconnectedness of life and not just our own needs.

    Seeing through the deceit and lies fed to us daily. Seeing the goodness that still manifests in the world.

    Whatever, don’t give up. New times are around the corner. We cannot go on this way. Something will give.

    Are there enough “decent”, wise and brave people out there ready to come forward? The answer is yes. As things crumble around us all, the seeds are sown for a new kind of society.

    This is not an ideology, but a fact.
