    'Australia Hit With Coldest Spell in 26 Years'

    "The winter Downunder has already been the coldest in 26 years. Temperatures plummeted on the East Coast at Marangaroo to a low of -11.1C. It is amazing that the amount of money on the table to justify global warming which is all about raising taxes for carbon emissions is placing us at a greater risk for it is distracting everyone from the real threat – global cooling….

    …Japan, which is more prepared for earthquakes than typhoons… The word “Kamikaze” really means “Divine Wind” and it was the attempt by the Mongold to invaded Japan TWICE when a typhoon destroyed their fleets. It was then said that Japan was protected by the “Divine Wind” and that is why the pilots were named Kamikaze. Right now, the typhoons are hitting Japan killing at what may be more than 200 people while forcing millions to evacuate. This has been the WORST disaster from a typhoon is 36 years.."

    …In fact, it has been pointed out that the analysis that has been used for the entire theory of Global Warming makes no sense whatsoever. The basis for this entire theory claims that somehow nature treats human CO2 emissions differently than it treats nature’s CO2 emissions. Besides that, CO2 levels have been historically much higher in the past long before humans began the Industrial Revolution."

    'Turkey the Poster Child of Emerging Market Crisis'

    "…Erdogan continues to try to consolidate power into a virtual dictatorship. He made his son-in-law Minister of Finance after the election and curtailed the independence of the central bank. He thinks he can simply manipulate the interest rates down, which is just going to blow up in his face. Erdogan has simply increased global investors’ fears with his attempt to control the central bank and interest rates. Erdogan has circumvented all democratic procedures and can appoint the president and vice president of the central bank without any other approval. We are looking at a politician who has become a dictator and we must question even the validity of any election in Turkey. Of even more concern, however, is that history warns this type of behavior typically is characterized by someone who will begin wars to distract the people and retain power at all costs."

    'Currency Risk – The Great Unknown That Brings Down Governments'

    "…Third world countries have been borrowing in dollars extensively. As the dollar rises, we will see defaults BECAUSE of the currency risk. It would not matter if countries borrowed in dollars or SDRs, they will encounter the same currency risk. At the very least, countries must be prohibited from borrowing in foreign currencies, or preferably, governments should be prohibited from borrowing PERIOD! The Roman Empire lasted for nearly 1,000 years. They neither had a central bank nor a national debt. There are other ways to restructure the global financial system. I am preparing the full solution that we need to examine based upon history and what has worked and what has failed."

    Getting energy straight from the sun (the body)
    "Sunlight is the most abundant energy source on this planet. However, the ability to convert sunlight into biological energy in the form of adenosine-5'-triphosphate (ATP) is thought to be limited to chlorophyll-containing chloroplasts in photosynthetic organisms. Here we show that mammalian mitochondria can also capture light and synthesize ATP when mixed with a light-capturing metabolite of chlorophyll."

    Artemisinin
    "Chemically, artemisinin is a sesquiterpene lactone containing an unusual peroxide bridge. This peroxide is believed to be responsible for the drug's mechanism of action. Few other natural compounds with such a peroxide bridge are known." Wiki

    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

      artemisinin is in the liquor absinthe. Taste between vintners varies significantly. A good absinthe is a very nice alcoholic drink, if anybody is that indulgent. There are still restrictions on thujone content of wormwood in absinthe in the U.S. but this is not true for Europe. Regulations were relaxed in 2007, Im not sure if you can get 'real' absinthe or not. But you can buy it from europe. I bought a few bottles before 2007 and the european vendor would re-bottle it for shipment with a different label!

      One can get wormwood tincture and add it however which is what I did. Absinthe is a subtle, aromatic liquor with an infusion of several different field herbs. It was vilified on purpose by the wine industry for capitalist purposes

      • I understand it can be quite the drink but for some unknown reason I have fears. Are they justified? Is it a drink done with friends or alone? Jazz or Rock-n-Roll? Indoors or out? So many questions, got any answers?

        • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

          Taffy, there is no hallucination or anything worse than any regular liquor. The story of madness is a fear campaign invented by the wine industry. The wine growers had a few bad years, which allowed absinthe to become more popular. When the grapes came back there was a market problem; how to get rid of the competition. Its just like reefer madness. Absinthe is subtle, with fragrant herbs that remind one of mountain valleys. The worst thing about it would be adding the traditional sugar. Fortunately this is not required as the taste is not too bitter

  • David Rothkopf, CEO and Editor of Foreign Policy Magazine Dares Call It Treason.

    “David Rothkopf, CEO and Editor of Foreign Policy Magazine, takes the gloves off and puts a good old fashioned beat-down on the GOP in this powerful piece for The Daily Beast.

    “Rothkoph begins by considering the timing of The Special Prosecutor’s indictment of twelve Russian Military officers for their role in looting and disseminating, for Trump’s benefit, the contents of the DNC Server combined with the strong statement on continued Russian cyber attacks by The Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats just ahead of Trump’s tête-à-tête with his handler Putin in Finland. Both were done just now, in his estimation, to inform the Russian tyrant (and I think other leaders of the GOP) that even though our idiot Resident is in his thrall, significant players in our nation’s leadership are not.

    “Then he gets to his meat.

    “’This is an extraordinary moment. It is without equal, not only in American history but in modern history. A hostile foreign power intervened in our election to help elect a man president who has since actively served their interests and has defended them at every turn.

    “’Trump may deny collusion. But given that this the attack continues, denying it is collusion, distracting from it is collusion, obstructing the investigation of it is collusion — because all these things enable it to go on.

      “’That the president is abetted in his aid for the Russians — again, in the midst of this ongoing attack — by the leadership of the Republican Party makes the situation all the more extraordinary and dangerous. As Republicans seek to undermine the investigation, they serve Russia as directly as if they were officers of the GRU. Some now reportedly seek to impeach Rosenstein on trumped up charges. To attack one of our national defense leaders as we are being attacked, and to do so to benefit our foreign adversary, is textbook treason.

      “’That is strong language. But consider this: If we updated our definitions of war to include cyberwar, then aiding a foreign power engaged in such a war against us would certainly meet the Constitutional definition: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

    Peeps: A moment of clarity..

    Please bare with me while I attempt to explain a most disturbing internet trend concerning the lack of truthful 'news' and 'reporting'.

    I will use the CURRENT? life-threatening heatwave in the UK as an example.. although I believe that all events are involved.

    It dawned on me that Great Briton seemed to be undergoing tremendous heat 'recently', so why, in July, are we talking about it as 'new' or 'this weekend', again?

    So I punch in 'June, heatwave, UK,..then I do the same using 'May'..same keywords, backing up to April. The friggin 'heatwave' is constant. From April.

    Imagine that in Feb/March, the UK had "the beast from the east" freeze [like Razz posted about Australia] then they went into a hellish relentless heat state, leftover from 2017, 2016..

    I used to think that reports on floods, heat, freezes, fires, ect, were current. They are not. These events are ongoing tragedies cleverly marketed as 'one time wonders'.

    More than 30 degrees warmer than the average February high. Up and down the the East Coast, from Atlanta to Baltimore to Cleveland to Boston,.. broke temperature records.

    The 'news' reported an "unusual warm spell".

    ITemps fluctuated wildly from winter-like cold one day — which is normal for February — to summer-like hot the next day.

    Hedvig Andersson, a cardiology researcher at the University of Michigan.
    “Our study suggests that such fluctuations in outdoor temperature could potentially lead to an increased number of heart attacks and affect global cardiac health in the future.”

    "In the future". When exactly is "the future"? It appears that extremes are happening now since your talking about. Yes. Everything according to "science" is now 'the future' so people don't realize they are becoming extinct.

    Thanks to Trump, Vladimir Putin is going to troll America non-stop.
    “He has hit a whole new level in recent days. On Thursday he denied that Russia was behind the 2016 election hacks, but waxed poetic about hackers who 'are like artists' in the way they choose their targets depending on how they feel ‘when they wake up in the morning.’ Putin continued, ‘If they are patriotically minded, they start making their contributions—which are right, from their point of view—to the fight against those who say bad things about Russia.’…”

    • My War With Russian Trolls
      by Paul R. Gregory

      “…But a closer look at such trolls reveals a different picture. Over the past five years, Russian trolls have regularly attacked my articles at Forbes.com. Given the number of attacks and their organized nature, I suspect most came directly from the IRA. The Kremlin clearly has not liked my posts on Russian domestic politics, the country’s faltering petro-economy, political assassinations, and foreign military intervention. What I encountered in the comments section of my pieces was an army of scripted trolls engaging in primitive invective and heavy doses of ad hominem blasts. These amateurs did not seem up to the monumental task for which they are now credited—of changing the course of American political history….

      “Troll ‘John’s’ tirade is a classic ad hominem smear: ‘Gregory’s inane, badly written propaganda articles never had one original thought, just parroting what he could grab on the Internet. Gregory is a pitiful Nazi moron.’…

      “Indeed, that Western democracies, American democracy especially, are rotten, corrupt, and hapless is a cornerstone of the Kremlin narrative. As the Mueller indictment concludes: The stated goal of the Russian operation was 'spreading distrust towards candidates and the political system in general.' The Russian trolls, according to the Mueller indictment, used a number of te'chniques to achieve this end. They encouraged fringe candidates. …[cont.]

      Crime has also been defined in social or non-legal terms. The social definition of crime is that it is behaviour or an activity that offends the social code of a particular community. Mower (1959) has defined it as "an anti-social act".

      Caldwell (1956: 114) has explained it as "an act or a failure to act that is considered to be so detrimental to the well-being of a society, as judged by its prevailing standards, that action against it cannot be entrusted to private initiative or to haphazard methods but must be taken by an organised society in accordance with tested procedures."

      Thorsten Sellin (1970: 6) has described crime as "violation of conduct norms of the normative groups".

      'Sonoma County is believed to include 9,000 cannabis growers keeping 12,000 people employed in the medical marijuana industry. But the real rush, so to speak, is expected to begin soon with hundreds of entrepreneurs clamoring to retail the stuff for recreation.

      In fact, California’s move toward legalizing recreational marijuana in 2016 with a plan to merge medical and recreational permits kept its eyes on the prize of a projected $7 billion in sales expected within four years from the November vote—not bad. You can bet state officials want to have regulations and permits in order as soon as possible, since every product containing the magical Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) will come with a 15% excise tax built into its price. California’s excise tax on wine and beer is far below that, just 0.20 cents a gallon. Of course, the increase in business adds to the 6% sales tax roll as well.'

  • 'Shameful,' 'treasonous,' 'disgraceful': Trump slammed from all sides for news conference with Putin

    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said Trump had "one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory."
    Jul.16.2018

    “President Donald Trump was swiftly rebuked by lawmakers, TV anchors and pundits across the political spectrum Monday after his joint news conference in Finland with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    “Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who has criticized the president's posture toward Russia in the past, called it ‘one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory.’

    “The summit, which took place between Trump and Putin at Finland's presidential palace Monday in Helsinki, was a ‘tragic mistake,’ McCain said. But dismissing the news conference that followed as a ‘pathetic rout’ of a political novice is too generous, he added.

    "’President Trump proved not only unable, but unwilling to stand up to Putin. He and Putin seemed to be speaking from the same script as the president made a conscious choice to defend a tyrant against the fair questions of a free press, and to grant Putin an uncontested platform to spew propaganda and lies to the world,’ McCain said.

    "’No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant,’ he added.

    “Former CIA director John Brennan, a Democrat and a frequent Trump critic, called Trump's performance at the news conference "nothing short of…

    • [cont.]
      “Retiring Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., called it ‘shameful.’

      "’I never thought I would see the day when our American President would stand on the stage with the Russian President and place blame on the United States for Russian aggression. This is shameful,’ Flake, another frequent critic of the president, said on Twitter.

      “At the news conference held after the summit, Trump downplayed the assessment of the U.S. intelligence community that Moscow mounted an effort to help him win the presidency in 2016.

      "’[Putin] just said it's not Russia, Trump said. ‘I will say this: I don’t see any reason why it would be.’

      “House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., who rarely criticizes Trump publicly, contradicted Trump's equivocations about Moscow's election meddling and said ‘the president must appreciate that Russia is not our ally.’

      "’There is no question that Russia interfered in our election and continues attempts to undermine democracy here and around the world,’ Ryan said in a statement.

      "There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russia, which remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals. The United States must be focused on holding Russia accountable and putting an end to its vile attacks on democracy," Ryan added.

      “Standing next to the Russian leader, Trump also bashed the Democratic Party, the FBI, special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian election meddling, Hillary Clinton and members of the news media.

      McCain is a walking deadman. May not even be walking. I haven't seen a video with him talking in months. They probably ran a stick up his ass and use him like a muppet with someone else writing his press releases.

      Putin has to have their only remaining aircraft carrier towed around port to port because it can't stay running. Same contradiction with his promoting catholic beliefs for his homeland and at the sametime rigging elections in his favor and jailing or killing off perceived threats. The old school thinking is simple, you measure greatness by how big your empire is.

      With that, Putin could end life as we know on Earth with a press of a nuke launch button.

      That is the reality we live in. So, better to have a dialogue than none at all.

      'Trump calls off Cold War II'

      "…Trump has signaled a historic shift in U.S. foreign policy that may determine the future of this nation and the fate of his presidency.

      He has rejected the fundamental premises of American foreign policy since the end of the Cold War and blamed our wretched relations with Russia not on Vladimir Putin, but squarely on the U.S. establishment…

      …Trump thereby repudiated the records and agendas of the neocons and their liberal interventionist allies, as well as the archipelago of War Party think tanks beavering away inside the Beltway…"

                    Acknowledge that the U.S. has spied on and influenced other countries and put the Russia thing into perspective.

                    We dont know what those guys are really talking about. Putin is one of the richest men in the world, Trump is all about wealth and prestige.

                    When was the U.S. soil and its inhabitants' welfare ever the prime objective of the so called leaders? You would have to go back to some pretty early presidents…you know, when they were exterminating the indians.

                    The constitution is a fine effort. Given time and effort you might be able to write a better one. Does it protect the environment? Does it have sound economic policy? Is it anti imperialist? Did it keep the country from going to hell and squandering its potential?

                    I say check your patriotism at your door and live freely in your mind. Theres more sincerity and righteousness in the quail running around than all the madmen in politics.

                      I had not seen this before and now I'm not quite awake but you reference someone I have knowledge of and some respect for, even if didn't quite see all that his books showed.
                      I am like him. I do not see all that I portray. You see what I have hidden myself from. My family causes me great pain. More than the joy but they do inspire m to be and do better. We, my family, almost wiped a whole race of people. Did I do it?, no but my blood did and so, the pain. The pride comes from the fact that we have always stepped up to the task at hand and given our best. What other family has done this? The ying and yang of our blood is hard for others to fathom. There is pain in pride and pride in pain. But you are of course correct. I will try and leave my patriotism at the door, no one understands it, no one can feel it other than a family member. Understand this, Trump is a turn-coat, a traitor and it burns inside me, a fire like no other. Rich or poor means nothing to my blood.

    Someone said the dossier is much more than just about golden showers, so i decided to it, their link anyway. Apparently there are like 3 versions.

    Most notable, there are no names of information providers, no photos, no photocopies, no memos, no emails, no meat of any kind. And numerous completely implausible presentations, such as someone knowing the content of some of Putin's private meetings. Or a contingency plan for if the "plot" was ever found out, that some hackers would travel to another city and "lay low", like WTF difference would your physical location matter, one could certainly lay low of further hacking attempts but to pretend some old school meme of going to another city would apply to a modern day electronic communications situation, is pretty absurd on the face of it.

    Read it, see how much you believe it. It seems "they" paid $15M to $50M for this unbacked up trash.

    US Officials Robbed Of Plutonium And Dirty Bomb Materials

    We wish we could say this is from The Onion but it's a now viral story that's but the latest representation of extreme government incompetence in handling deadly radioactive materials. Two Department of Energy security officials tasked with transporting deadly substances left plutonium in the back of their Ford Expedition, where it was promptly stolen from a Marriott parking lot in San Antonio.

    And over a year later and after what appears to be a ham-handed investigation that was prematurely shut down perhaps for fear of public embarrassment, authorities still have no clue as to the whereabouts of what the government admits are "bomb-usable materials".

    An investigative report by the watchdog group, the Center for Public Integrity, details a March 2017 "sensitive mission" by two security experts from the Department of Energy’s Idaho National Laboratory to transport dangerous nuclear materials from a nonprofit lab in San Antionio back to a high-secure government facility in Idaho.

    This involved specialized equipment, which the report describes as "a plastic-covered disk of plutonium, a material that can be used to fuel nuclear weapons, and another of cesium, a highly radioactive isotope that could potentially be used in a so-called 'dirty' radioactive bomb."

    The moment where the theft is recounted is worth viewing in the original report, given how…

    • Ambiorix Ambiorix

      ..given how unbelievable the scenario:

      But when they stopped at a Marriott hotel just off Highway 410, in a high-crime neighborhood filled with temp agencies and ranch homes, they left those sensors on the back seat of their rented Ford Expedition. When they awoke the next morning, the window had been smashed and the special valises holding these sensors and nuclear materials had vanished.

      More than a year later, state and federal officials don’t know where the plutonium — one of the most valuable and dangerous substances on earth — is. Nor has the cesium been recovered.

    Trump and Putin are clearly in cahoots — over propping up fossil fuels

    Whether Russia meddled in the U.S. presidential election in 2016 is not up for serious debate — numerous intelligence agencies, both foreign and domestic, concluded it did.

    During a joint press conference with President Donald Trump in Helsinki on Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin went a long way toward answering why.

    “I did [want Trump to win] because he talked about bringing the U.S.-Russia relationship back to normal,” Putin said.

    That statement was widely covered, but I’m convinced something else Putin said during the press conference is more important.

    “I think that we as a major oil and gas power, and the United States as a major oil and gas power, as well, we could work together on regulation of international markets,” he said. “We do have space for cooperation here.”

    Some close observers have drawn this connection before, but it’s worth saying again explicitly: There’s no way to understand Trump’s relationship with Russia without putting oil and climate politics at its center. If you’re upset at Trump and Putin for undermining our democracy, just wait until you find out that they are likely colluding to destroy our planet’s climate system, too.

  • I was stalked as usual last Friday as I walked to the food band. The person snuck up right behind me, passed me up and when half a block ahead of me turned around and looked at me for a while. In 100 degree weather he was wearing a hoody that covered most of his face.

    I think he was the same stalker in 2016 who did the same thing wearing a heavy pea jacket in very hot weather and the silicone head mask with a black face.

    He was taller than me. I am 5' 6.5". I could see his legs from the knee down.

    One day when I went to the food bank I was stalked by 5 people. One was the same as last Friday, two were together and 5' tall and one was 6' 6-8" tall.

    If I keep getting so much criticism on this website, I will record every stalking incident every time.

            I didn't file charges. But I will get a restraining order if you keep harassing me. I've acted as a forgiving Christian so far. But you wouldn't understand that at all.

            And my church has also prayed for me. And if I need to I will join a church in Longmont. And there are also other people helping me, but you just can't see them.

            The worst is the stalking + threatening messages which always accompany stalking. The threatening messages are on enenews.com and the record is very clear including the video showing someone strangulating a woman by a stalker and other threats.

            I prefer to not comment to people, but your threats are not a positive message, but reinforce the stalking.

                  "The worst is the stalking + threatening messages which always accompany stalking. The threatening messages are on enenews.com"

                  Dr. Maziar, your false accusations have always struck me as bizarre.
                  I have seen no threats directed towards you. And stalking? This is a website. It's not a physical reality.
                  I have seen you engaged in an apparent world class failure of reading comprehension.

                  • The stalking is when I'm outside walking with my walker. I'll just have to use my camera and my whistle. And then if I go to my psychiatrist, I'll have her take pictures if someone follows me there. Most of the stalking was a 5 foot person and I don't know the names of the two 5-foot persons involved and if they have mostly worn disguises I couldn't even say which is which on a given occasion.

                    Stalking is very weird. All I can think is that something is going on that somebody doesn't want me to see, and that is why my travels with my walker are kept track of. Now shadowing can be kept secret, but there is also shadowing that the person wants me to know about which is what always happens. Eventually someone will be caught. Please stop. I'll try taking call-n-ride for awhile so there is no more near contact.

                Well its treading on sensitive ground, but one cant help notice Anne has classic symptoms of paranoia. Unless she addresses it, rather than retreat, she will encounter this diagnoses from caregivers.

                There is an interesting correlation between mental disorders and religion. I think this can be extended to politics as well, although I dont have supporting literature at hand. Cause and effect? Both biochemical and sociological conditioning are causative, as well as being possessed by the devil. (a little joke)

                "Various studies have found that the prevalence of religious delusions in schizophrenia is very high. Torrey found around half of sufferers in the U.S. experience religious delusions.

                  Ive pondered this over the years…what is the relationship between mental disorder and various cultural formative forces (religion politics social norms and more). One often hears this statement when there are dissenting views of politics "Youre crazy". There might be something to that.

                  "The main areas involved in hyperreligiosity
                  are the frontal lobes, the temporal lobes, and the limbic system.
                  The neurobiological basis of hyper-religiosity is discussed by comparing the
                  neurobiological substrates of the four disorders in which hyper-religiosity usually occurs.
                  These disorders are obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), schizophrenia, temporal lobe
                  epilepsy (TLE), and mania."

                    A study, published in the Journal of Religion & Health, showed that people who believe in an angry, vengeful god are more likely to suffer from social anxiety, paranoia, obsessional thinking, and compulsions. Symptoms of mental illness were more common among those in the punitive god group than in the deistic god or benevolent god groups.

                    Its interesting we just read a classic post that said one who does not fear God cant have respect for oneself or others….my impulse reaction was 'thats crazy' but a closer examination of the roll of the frontal, temporal lobes and limbic system elucidates the the point with greater coherence.

                    Patriotism may well fit into the etiology of paranoia dysfunction, having a similar root. Not that one shouldnt feel protective of ones home, neighborhood, state, country, continent, and above all, the global ecosphere and its life energy; the sun

                      Delusions are culturally specific.
                      "Religion and schizophrenia
                      Trans-cultural studies have found that delusional religious beliefs, such as the belief one is a profit, or that God is talking to them, or being posessed by the devil, are much more common in patients with schizophrenia who identify as Christian and/or reside in predominately Christian areas such as Europe or North America. By comparison, patients in Japan much more commonly have delusions surrounding matters of shame and slander, and in Pakistan matters of paranoia regarding relatives and neighbors"

    Not sure what they mean with "GMO"

    New Self-Cloning ‘GMO’ Tick Invades USA, Spreading Human Diseases

    The Longhorned tick, normally native to east Asia, was discovered in western North Carolina along the South Carolina border.

    Charlotteobserver.com reports: Details of the discovery were not released, but a warning was issued Wednesday for the state’s veterinarians to be on the lookout for a rapid spread.

    Longhorned ticks are capable of spreading disease, and the females reproduce without a male, says the N.C. Department of Agriculture. That means a single female can create a colony anywhere in the state, officials say.

    Kushner Cos. Allegedly Did Some Horrific Shit to Force Out Rent Stabilized Tenants

    Jared Kushner’s former real estate company may have exposed children to toxic dust as part of a campaign to push out rent-controlled tenants, according to a new lawsuit.

    The lawsuit was filed by nineteen tenants of 184 Kent Ave. in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and alleged that Kushner Cos., starting in June 2015, used unsafe construction as a technique to oust tenants in an attempt to convert the building into luxury condos. The tenants are asking for $10 million in damages.

    The Daily News reports:

    “The intentional and negligent actions of (Kushner Cos.) have caused plaintiffs, and young children, to be exposed to a constant cloud of toxic smoke and dust, illegal noise, unsafe conditions, unregulated and unsupervised workmen performing construction activity,” said the suit filed in Brooklyn Supreme Court, which was dated July 15.

    The dust included toxins such as “lead, crystalline silicates, gypsum and other poisonous and carcinogenic substances,” the lawsuit alleged. […]

    The construction has also led to a “chronic rodent infestation, illegal noise, sporadic flooding, loss of hot water, broken windows, holes in the walls, lack of security (and) accumulation of mold,” the suit said.

    The Limits of Green Energy Under Capitalism

    Renewable energy is expanding rapidly all around the world. The energy capacity of newly installed solar projects in 2017, for instance, exceeded the combined increases from coal, gas and nuclear plants. During the past eight years alone, global investment in renewables was $2.2 trillion, and optimism has soared along with investments.

    But can renewable energy grow fast enough in the market economy to pinch off the use of fossil fuels and help fend off climate catastrophe? Unfortunately, it’s not likely. Even as the percentage of global energy generation from renewables increases, so too does global energy consumption, which means that fossil fuel emissions are also increasing.

    The world’s energy-related carbon emissions rose by 1.7 percent in 2017 and energy consumption grew by 2.2 percent, the fastest rate since 2013. For the past decade, primary energy consumption increased worldwide at an average rate of 1.7 percent per year. Power generation rose last year by 2.8 percent with renewable energy providing 49 percent of that increase and most of the rest (44 percent) coming from coal. Globally, oil consumption grew by 1.8 percent, natural gas by 3 percent and coal consumption increased by 1 percent. The key point is that greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels are increasing even as renewable energy use is growing.

    Turning Trump’s Trade War Into a Tool to Fight Climate Change
    What if countries responded to Trump’s tariffs by taxing imports based on their carbon footprint instead?

    As the Trump administration's trade war heats up, a group of experts is proposing a new way to counter protectionism—and prod the United States back into climate action at the same time.

    In a commentary in the journal Nature, the team of trade and climate policy experts called for a global punitive tax on imports based on their carbon footprint.

    It's an idea that was invented to address the problem of "free riders"—nations that refuse to join the global practice of putting a price on carbon, such as a tax or a cap-and-trade market mechanism. To avoid giving the free riders a competitive advantage in world trade, the carbon price would be collected on their products as an import tariff at the border.

    The border tax would "level the emissions playing field by imposing the same economic burden on domestic and external manufacturers," the team writes in the article, published online Monday.

    Imagining an Economy That Serves the 99%

    Those who benefit most from the status quo spend a lot of money to persuade the rest of us that this – an economy that serves the top 1% — is good for us and, in fact, the best we can do

    Meanwhile, the rich are getting richer, and US corporate profits continue to break records. In 1965 the typical CEO earned about 20 times as much as the average worker. In 2016, the ratio was 270.

    “An affidavit filed by an FBI agent asserts that Butina tried to cozy up to a gun rights organization so she could influence a major political party, all the while working for a top Russian central bank official and trying to advance the interests of the Russian state — and not registering as a foreign agent.

    “Though the affidavit does not name many of the people and groups involved, previous reporting and context clues make it clear that the gun rights group is the National Rifle Association, the party is the Republican Party, and the Russian official is Alexander Torshin….”

    'When We will Be Truthful About Bureaucratic Intervention into Foreign Elections?'

    "…This selective memory is really absurd. We have to be honest and call the shots straight up. Even Obama came out and was desperate to blame Russia for hacking DNC files that exposed internal corruption. Nobody ever said that the emails that were hacked had been altered. They were real. Nevertheless, Obama’s Administration plainly said: “We stand behind our election results, which accurately reflect the will of the American people.”

    So if the emails were real and the voting machines were not hacked, then the issue boils down to whoever hacked simply released emails that were self-damning and the election outcome was not altered by any hacking. The Bureaucracy has the media on its side to constantly portray Russia as the enemy. I have been in meetings asking why is Russia our enemy? Nobody can give me an answer. I state they are no longer communist. That was what the cold war was all about. They look at me with a blank look in their eyes and finally just say: “Well they are Russian!” The entire Crimera thing is absurd…"

    US Congress readies bill to advance 5G networks

    Read: removes control of local and state governments to have control or oversight on 5G deployment.

    This is the technology from Hell (Nuke's evil twin?)

    The info. I've read on 5G is enough to make my hair stand on end. We are from a telecomm family, so I don't say this lightly.

    Please consider opposing the rollout of 5G. It will blanket entire nations with an inescapable blanket of non-ionizing radiation in the Gigahertz (GHz) frequency sprectrum.

    Milimeter wave technology, the same as used for directed energy weapons. Not pretty. The military uses this in part for "denial of access" weapons.

    It's pretty obvious by now WE THE PEOPLE are the enemy.

      "A bipartisan Senate bill introduced in late June would expedite placement of 5G infrastructure but limit state and local authority in negotiating application fees with mobile carriers.

      Already the proposed legislation has earned the praise of the wireless industry, with trade association CTIA stating S. 3157 'will help America win the global 5G race by accelerating deployment of next-generation wireless infrastructure while preserving local authority.'

      But Christopher Mitchell, director of community broadband networks for the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, said the legislation is wrongheaded. He argued timely rollout of 5G, or fifth-generation wireless, technology will happen regardless of federal action, and carriers should agree to a fair price for using public rights of way.

      'If we don’t immediately steamroll localities’ decision making, then we will miss out on new technology? If China deploys 5G more rapidly than us, then we’re going to lose?' Mitchell told Route Fifty. 'China has more roads than us. China has more people than us.'

      'I don’t see how we lose a single job if China has more 5G than we do,' he continued."

I have found it very frustrating getting called in when they have a crisis that they create by mismanagement. The profit margins have to expand to cover the costs of waste by mismanagement. The Deep State is indeed the bureaucracy. Just look at Brussels. They are waging a fight against anything that would undermine the euro, not to further the living standards or expand the economy of Europe. It has now turned all around and the primary goal is to preserve the EU bureaucracy. They now are defending their jobs. People think there is some global conspiracy. These people cannot even run their own state no less agree to hand power to yet some other mythical super group lurking behind the curtain.

      I have been called in to probably more central banks than anyone. So how can Armstrong also make that claim?

      • razzz razzz

        Wikipedia is not the definitive answer.

        Armstrong is an on-call adviser on a global scale. If a central bank is having problems it calls him. If a government is in financial trouble they call him. If a State wants their investment fund(s) reviewed for advice they call him. If a company if floundering, they call him. If you are an individual investor, you can sign up for $10 to get limited access to his computer programs. If you are a government or a bank, starting at $250,000 a year you can get access and advice on all aspects of his computer programs.

        His record is good and data base so extensive, when warning of global cooling, pending debt disasters, foreign currency meltdowns or sees warning signs of possible unrest or war rumblings, people stand up and take notice. Not always the parties involved but mainly investors looking to avoid risk.

        He was the largest fund manager in the world a couple of times but with that comes suspicions and accusations so he no longer handles funds but only advises. Well known in the halls of Congress for decades. When in jail 7+ years for contempt of court, people around the world offered to pay any fines to free him but the US wanted his computer program more than anything else. He never gave it up.

          Do you hear this alleged fact from anyone other than Armstrong? Sounds like a sales pitch to me. International banks have predictive algorithms. Super computers are now using the parallel processing power of graphic cards in huge rooms full of computer modules. Teams of people would create algorythms to utilize the processing power. Armstrong couldnt hope to equal that investment and power.

          • razzz razzz

            You'd have to read his history even if he is recalling his own events. He is pretty much ignored by main stream media which is more like an endorsement. Smart money knows exactly who is he. He has posted letters to administrations warning of pending decisions that would have bad results. Testified before congress and called into meetings to interview presidential candidates and judge for comprehension abilities.

            Large investment funds ex. a State employee retirement funds take special handling or go broke since purchases and selling have to be finessed. Only a few talented enough to handle billions of dollars for investments.

            True dat about computer power, but you need a database to crunch numbers. He sends teams in for a year at a time to gather data from newspaper archives adding to his database. He claims he uses the stock markets like an ATM anytime he needs money so there is no telling what kind of computing power he is using since he keeps it off the grid and isolated. He is a programmer and front runner of artificial intelligence as his program can be asked verbal questions by clients and answers verbally including generating reports at the sametime. His worldwide company is private so he can keep things secret. Later on he plans to go public with a stock offering.

            There are many stories about him interacting with central banks and governments. He told Euroland their plan would never workout. Said be a trade union instead.

    This is not a fire. It's a subsurface smoldering event involving radioactive waste beyond comprehension. Infared shows 'hotspots' but introducing oxygen is incomprehensible.
