Germany Bans Fracking Forever

serveimage
Germany have agreed to permanently ban fracking in the country following years of debate over the issue.

The coalition government have said that they will outlaw the practise of fracking for shale gas, but will allow test drilling to take place in certain circumstances.

German industry is keen to keep the door open to fracking – which involves blasting chemicals and water into rocks to release trapped gas – arguing it could help lower energy costs, but opposition is strong in the country, where a powerful green lobby has warned about possible risks to drinking water.

Europe’s last primeval forest set to undergo brutal logging

serveimage
One of Poland’s most commanding and impressive natural sites is the Bialowieza Forest. This is not just any forest; it happens to be Europe’s oldest primeval forest and the last of its type to exist. Spanning nearly 1,000 square miles along the border with Belarus, the forest is home to the largest bison population in Europe, along with countless other species, including lynxes and wolves.

Visitors are able to step back in time and see firsthand exactly the type of forest that once covered most of Europe. It has stood proudly since 8000 BC, and much of it hasn’t been touched by humans since the Ice Age, but now it is facing destruction as a brutal logging campaign got underway on May 25.

A newly passed logging law is undoing thousands of years of nature’s work. The environment ministry will allow loggers to chop down more than 6.4 million cubic feet of wood from the forest’s non-protected areas over the course of the next ten years, despite a massive outcry on a local and global scale.

Once its gone its gone. I’ve been wanting to go and see this forest for some time. I’d better go now before its too late.(Forsooth)

Council that granted fracking permit is controlled by the Conservatives

160523-frack-fightback
Isn’t it interesting that – even though they’re not supposed to vote along party lines on planning issues – the North Yorkshire planning committee that granted permission for fracking in Ryedale, by a majority of seven to four, is composed of seven Conservatives and four other members?

Oklahoma Is Now as Much of an Earthquake Risk as California
A new federal map released Monday shows parts of Oklahoma are now as seismic as parts of California and Alaska, long the nation’s leaders in earthquakes, and for the first time includes man-made earthquakes.

The U.S. Geological Survey’s new earthquakes hazard map, which helps states and government officials determine insurance rates and building codes, is in part a reaction to the historic increase in seismic activity in Oklahoma. Last year the state experienced almost 900 3-plus magnitude earthquakes; in 2007, it recorded just one. On earlier USGS maps, Oklahoma was a seismic afterthought.

Scientists say Oklahoma’s surge in quakes is due to the injection of billions of barrels of salty wastewater that have come to the surface during oil and natural gas exploration. The water’s injection back into the earth has put pressure on the state’s fault lines, leading to quakes that have damaged homes, schools and other structures. Oklahoma has thousands of disposal wells, including a heavy concentration in the state’s northwestern and central regions, where most of the earthquakes are occurring. Ten of the state’s 12 most powerful quakes have struck since 2011.

Monsanto to Be Put on Trial for ‘Crimes Against Nature and Humanity’

h
The Organic Consumers Association, IFOAM International Organics, Navdanya, Regeneration International (RI) and Millions Against Monsanto, joined by dozens of global food, farming and environmental justice groups announced last week that they will put Monsanto, a U.S.-based transnational corporation, on trial for crimes against nature and humanity and ecocide, in The Hague, Netherlands, next year on World Food Day, Oct. 16, 2016.

The announcement was made at a press conference held in conjunction with the COP21 United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Paris.

Glyphosate causing a wave of chronic disease across America

serveimage
A recent study conducted by Dr. Nancy Swanson and the President of the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM), Andre Leu, has reinforced what many have been convinced of all along: glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup, is lethal. Their correlation study determined that it’s lethal even in small amounts, debunking the notion in which some people suggest that its levels are so low that it can’t possibly damage health.

The study, titled “Genetically engineered crops, glyphosate and the deterioration of health in the United States of America,” was published in the Journal of Organic Systems. First, United States government databases were reviewed to find GE crop data, disease epidemiological data and glyphosate application data. Then, the team conducted correlation analyses on 22 diseases in these data sets which revealed the disturbing discovery that the ingredient is indeed wreaking havoc on people’s health.

U.S. government bans First Amendment rights for weather scientists to hide truth on geoengineering and climate change

chemtrails1
The Obama administration is beginning to lose control over the narrative regarding “climate change” and “global warming,” leading it to suspend the First Amendment like it wants the rest of us who don’t buy the hoax to suspend belief in what we see and hear.

As noted by Dane Wigington at GeoEngineering Watch, the “power structure” is in panic mode as more Americans come to realize that “anthropogenic warming” is actually being fueled by the very geoengineering programs that claim to be mitigation for the problem.

“In recent weeks,” writes Wigington, “Washington has placed ‘gag orders’ on the following agency employees, ‘The National Weather Service,’ the ‘National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration,’ and the ‘U.S. Department of Commerce.’ This is a massive red flag that should trigger alarm bells everywhere.”

Bill Hopkins, the executive vice president for the National Weather Service Employees Organization (NWSEO), had this to say:

As a taxpayer, I find it highly disturbing that a government agency continues to push gag orders to hide how they operate. This is the work of the American government, owned by the American public, and should be open to the American public.

An Open Letter to the World Community of Nations

????????????????????????????????????

We write this open letter out of grave concern for what you are about to undertake. We the People of the nations of the world are those whom you both serve and represent. Therefore, we trust that you will give voice to our deeply held convictions regarding the current global climate change debate.

Up until now our voices have not been heard; they have been muted. The national governments, corporate interests, scientific bodies, various universities and other research institutions have completely taken over the public discourse regarding the global warming issue. Each of these entities clearly has its own agenda. Consequently, many of the truth(s) about global climate change are systematically avoided, ignored and/or misrepresented.

No one disputes that there have been radical alterations of weather patterns around the world. Nor would anyone disagree with the observation that climate trends have experienced dramatic changes. Truly, the atmospheric conditions of planet Earth have entered a period of great flux and unpredictability. However, the most obvious causes are steadfastly avoided by those in positions of power and influence.

Geoengineering through the employment of advanced atmospheric
engineering technologies has had a tremendous impact on GCC,
and is perhaps the greatest piece of the anthropogenic component.
he systematic, wide-area, and indiscriminate spraying of
chemtrail aerosols throughout the atmosphere, together with
the dissemination of HAARP frequencies to perform solar
radiation management, precipitation generation, and land mass
engineering have had dramatic effects on the GCC scenario, particularly in those areas which have been subjected to DARPA
experimentation. Climate engineering, weather modification and
atmospheric manipulation have all seen a significant increase
since the turn of the century and have substantially contributed
to the acceleration of GCC. Pumping billions of watts of energy
into the ionosphere via HAARP will ultimately have considerable
negative impacts on the entire biosphere. So will the many
recent initiatives designed to manufacture the appearance of
Global Cooling.

The IPCC’s Latest Report Deliberately Excludes And Misrepresents Important Climate Science

nipcc-CCR2-home-slide-622x305

This week, the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is releasing its latest report, the “Working Group II Contribution to the Fifth Assessment Report.” Like its past reports, this one predicts apocalyptic consequences if mankind fails to give the UN the power to tax and regulate fossil fuels and subsidize and mandate the use of alternative fuels. But happily, an international group of scientists I have been privileged to work with has conducted an independent review of IPCC’s past and new reports, along with the climate science they deliberately exclude or misrepresent.

So how do the IPCC and NIPCC reports differ? The final draft of the IPCC’s Summary for Policymakers identifies eight “reasons for concern” which media reports say will remain the focus of the final report. The NIPCC reports address each point too, also summarizing their authors’ positions in Summaries for Policymakers. This provides a convenient way to compare and contrast the reports’ findings.

How globalization and climate change destroyed ancient civilization

A global economy held together by interdependence — possibly to a fault. A changing climate causing worldwide disaster. And a warlike people seeking to wreak havoc throughout civilization.

It sounds like modern times, but the description above applies to the period known as the Late Bronze Age, around 3,200 years ago. In his new book, archaeologist Eric H. Cline introduces us to a past world with eerie resonance for modern times.

The sort of globalization at play today was pioneered over three millennia ago, as societies embarked on free and plentiful trade, strongly influencing each other’s cultures.

But after 300 years of vibrant economic growth and cultural and technological advancement, the entire civilized world collapsed in a matter of decades due to factors strongly paralleled today. It was the first example that “political uncertainties on one side of the world can drastically affect the economies of regions thousands of miles away.”

Global Warming Will Not Cost the Earth, Leaked IPCC Report Admits

global_warming_fairy_cartoon

The economic costs of ‘global warming’ have been grossly overestimated, a leaked report – shortly to be published by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) – has admitted.

Previous reports – notably the hugely influential 2006 Stern Review – have put the costs to the global economy caused by ‘climate change’ at between 5 and 20 percent of world GDP.

But the latest estimates, to be published by Working Group II of the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report, say that a 2.5 degrees Celsius rise in global temperatures by the end of the century will cost the world economy between just 0.2 and 2 percent of its GDP.

If the lower estimate is correct, then all it would take is an annual growth rate of 2.4 percent (currently it’s around 3 percent) for the economic costs of climate change to be wiped out within a month.

This admission by the IPCC will come as a huge blow to those alarmists – notably the Stern Review’s author but also including everyone from the Prince of Wales to Al Gore – who argue that costly intervention now is our only hope if we are to stave off the potentially disastrous effects of climate change.

Sir Nicholas (now Lord) Stern was commissioned by Tony Blair’s Labour government to analyse the economic impacts of climate change. Stern, an economist who had never before published a paper on energy, the environment, or indeed climate change, concluded that at least two per cent of global GDP would need to be diverted to the war on global warming.

Woodland is shipped 3,800 miles and burned in Drax power station. It belches out more CO2 than coal at a huge cost to the taxpayer

Aerial Photograph by Webb Aviation Aerial Photography

Majestic trees soar straight and tall, their roots sunk deep in the swampland: maples, sweetgums and several kinds of oak. A pileated woodpecker – the world’s largest species, with a wingspan of almost 2ft – whistles as it flutters across the canopy. There the leaves are starting to bud, 100ft above the ground.

But North Carolina’s ‘bottomland’ forest is being cut down in swathes, and much of it pulped and turned into wood pellets – so Britain can keep its lights on.

The UK is committed by law to a radical shift to renewable energy. By 2020, the proportion of Britain’s electricity generated from ‘renewable’ sources is supposed to almost triple to 30 per cent, with more than a third of that from what is called ‘biomass’.

HAARP, Chemtrails, and Weather Modification – The True Source of Climate Change

Flickr-chemtrails-oMeChaNiCal

To state the obvious, the weather around the globe keeps getting more and more intense everywhere. It is getting much colder in some regions and much hotter in others. It is global warming and it is global cooling.

Record highs, record lows, record heat, record cold. Record swing in temperature changes, record droughts and record rains and record snows. And no one in global power mentions a word about the freaky weather affecting all, which should not surprise anyone paying attention because they don’t talk of the continuing disaster that is Fukushima or the nearly daily gas spills and oil leaks going on across the United States.

Fracking – Suicide Capitalism Poisons The Earth’s Fresh Water Supplies.

stop_fracking0

Lena Headley lives in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. She and her husband bought a small farm for their semi-retirement with the mineral rights but not the oil and gas rights. Over the last seven years 5 gas wells and a transmission pipeline have been put on their land. The effect has been devastating: Pollution of land and air together with destruction of fruit trees and the burning of 10 acres of ground by the gas drillers. Gas wells leak and a spring 200 feet from her house is so rich with gas it can be set on fire.

Visits to the family doctor have become common. Her 5 year old son Adam suffers from crippling stomach pains. Lena has said that she wants her story to act as warning to ordinary people about the dangers of fracking.

The reason for ‘the pause’ in global warming, excuse #37 in a series: ‘trade winds’

global-warming-al-gore

Well not exactly #37, but it sure seems like it with all the handwaving we’ve seen lately.

So far, we’ve heard from Climate Science that ‘the pause’ was caused by:

Too much aerosols from volcanoes, ENSO patterns,missing heat that went to the deep ocean, ocean cooling,low solar activity, inappropriately dealt with weather stations in the Arctic, and stadium waves, to name a few. So much for consensus.

Now, it’s trade winds going too fast that are causing abnormal cooling in the Pacific. A new paper from theUniversity of New South Wales says that once the winds return to normal speed, well, look out, the heat is on.

Sweden Runs Out of Garbage

untitled

The Kingdom of Sweden, which holds a population of 9.5 million, relies partly on a growing waste-to-energy program. They convert all their garbage to energy to help bring heating and electricity to their citizens. Faced with a potential predicament, the Kingdom actually ran out of waste. Senior Advisor for the Sweden Environmental Protection Agency Catarina Ostlund talked about how Sweden doesn’t produce as much waste as it needs to produce energy saying, “We have more capacity than the production of waste in Sweden and this is usable for the incineration.” The Scandinavian stronghold then turned to Norway and other European nations for help.

Fukushima Daiichi: A Chronological Account of the Disaster .

Nuclear power and the legacy of nuclear power are never going to benefit the human race. We have already caused so much damaged to the environment and ourselves that giving up this very destructive process now is in some ways far too late. There may be technologies in the future to de-contaminate the earth, but that may be a long way off. The best we can do for now is to put a full stop to the nuclear industry. Power cuts are by far a better option than using nuclear power.

What in the World Are They Spraying? Is One of the Reasons Everyone Is getting Sick. .

Geoengineering or ‘chem trails’ is not a conspiracy theory it is a conspiracy fact. It has been going on for at least the last 10 years and is a process of spraying particles into the atmosphere such as aluminium, barium and strontium in order to control the weather and block out sunlight to reduce so called global warming. If this is the case then it is a desperate attempt.

Aluminium, which is the major particulate that is used, is poisoning the water, soil, animals and humans. It is getting into the food chain our food chain. They may think they are saving the planet but by ultimately killing all life just does not make any sense.

These people are either stupid or they know exactly what they are doing.
