    The Senate is about to confirm a judge who would supercharge religious attacks on science
    Great, now we have to worry about creationism again

  • OT: I didn't lose my voice yet this year. So I'm singing in the Christmas concert this Friday and Saturday. I don't know the music very well because I missed so many rehearsals. Sigh. [I miss my shadow].

  • Although it took annoyingly long, it was great back in the day when I could lead a charge that would eventually have the trolls, aka socref et al, banned.

    It is pretty clear that Russia did it.

    • HillbillyHoundDog HillbillyHoundDog

      Did you actually have socref banned, or were "socref" comments simply stopped and replaced with another's, so as to to make it appear that ENE was a legit website with "some" moderation when the majority overwhelmingly protested the insults and harassment- so that anti-nukes would stay and continue to provide information on themselves to admin under the guise that they were "safe"?

      This theory fits well with your theory that ENE admin is a pro-nuke purchaser of the site, whom purposefully lures readers with misleading headlines, collecting comments and personal info sent directly to them via "reply", "report comment" and "suggestions", or even emails, by unknowing anti-nukes who have been framed to believe that admin and site are something they are not and whom has purposefully, knowingly and willingly conspired to shut the anti-nukes down, gathering intelligence information and acting accordingly (fraud and entrapment).

      Does it not?
      By your own admission, you were a victim of this fraud, yes?
      Your latest comments have pointed to you being "unsure" of your original theory about the sale of the site, AI, the fraud and entrapment, etc…

      Has your theory or opinions changed? Anything solid yet?

      Admin doesn't seem to mind legitimizing your theory- by default…

      Perhaps this is less of a joke than you report:

        Hey, Hippie, over here.

        What if members were making monetary donations to ENE thinking they were donating to anti-nuke cause, when (according to some) the owner was a pro-nuke shill?

        You know what that is?

        • HillbillyHoundDog HillbillyHoundDog

          Tap. Tap. Tap.

            FEEL THE LOVE

            Hey, Anne said the exact same thing:

            Hippie: "Why don't you get to doing something constructive with your time like proving propaganda and outright lies on this site?

            Because you are one of the posters of propaganda and lies on this site…

            So just sling childish insults instead ya frickin man child…

            …Who would believe anything a fool says? Only another fool will give credence to a known lair and propaganda spreader…

            Those soap opera end of the world people eat your pitiful spouting up huh..

            You are part of the real problem at ENE and I'll bet you have never been part of a real solution to anything that mattered in your entire life…

            Whaaaaaaaaaaa Hilbilly has too much time on his man child hands to troll the internet and spread fake news and innuendo about people that is totally false…

            So sad…"

            No coincidence he has gone after the three other most prominent anti-nukes here with just as much hatred and contempt. Nope.

            Do you own this site, Hippie?

            • DUDe DUDe

              He is a fascist , they think they own everything..

            • Yea and here's another perfect example of who the fake info spreaders are…. I was talking to the fake conspiracy posters and you cut and pasted my comments in a attempt to create a another lie…

              I personally wrote this statement and you altered it by placing hippie in front of it and referencing another poster to make it seem that someone was talking to me? Pitiful attempt to misguide…

              If you don't want to be found out as a fake news poster, don't post faked news and comments about others…

              Fakers fake and have proved they will try to fake anything if it suits them…

              All the rest of these comments about anti nuke, pro nuke, troll and of phantom posters getting paid to discredit you? It's the same old smokescreen.

              Fact is fake posters discredit them selves slinging accusations and false facts made up from a mental illness and/or a overactive imagination / need for attention…

              And to think all this childish crap started because I PROVED a fake news story posted by heart of the rose…

              Ya should have been thanking me for exposing the truth but instead it was childish insults and more fake information, this time about me…

              And all ya have to do is go back to the start if this childish drama to see the truth.

              The "using lasers to start fires in cali" craziness is where to begin to see and prove for sure that these few posters aren't the least bit concerned with finding the truth or posting true fact…

              • Heart of the Rose Heart of the Rose

                You proved zip..HD..

                • Heart of the Rose Heart of the Rose

                  Because you failed to prove..whatever it is..to ME.

                  • Heart of the Rose Heart of the Rose

                    Would you agree that AI is over analytical and lacks mental nuance…?

                    BBL..

                  • Well honey luckily enough you don't have to believe something for it to be true…

                    And if you still can't discern that the so called fox news video was a TOTAL fake then you need a new hobby quick…

                    …You are only polluting your mind with lies if you still think there is any truth or fact in that total disinformation.

                    And please try to understand that I'm showing the real conspiracy here, that is the conspiracy to produce and spread fake information…

                    And it will ruin your mind and your attitude towards real life truth if you buy into that ridiculous fake information.

                    It's a real brainwashing through fake information that's the real threat to you…

                      You shouldn't call women "honey" when you are degrading them, Hippie.

                      Makes you look like a yellow-bellied lizard.

                      Oh, wait….

                    • I am a reader, I did decide and then I posted the proof for other readers to see….

                      That's how this thing works in case you didn't know…

                      But instead of learning from it, it's a bash the hippie fest…

                      And if this is not a statement of a fake information conspirator I don't know what is…

                      Heart said: "Since when did we not let the readers decide?
                      Hummm???"

                      So what of it? You wanted to see how many readers you could fool with a total lie?

                      Yea I guess I ruined that for ya huh…

                      Now there's a real Hummmmmmmmmm.

              • HillbillyHoundDog HillbillyHoundDog

                You should ban me, Hippie.

                Definitely. For pointing to you and hollerin' "Conspiring to degrade the site! Hacker! Your website sucks fuel rods!" If nothing else.

                But, if you want to just ban me for quoting you, that's good, too.

                See you over at gen nuke and Topic.

                Oh, wait…

                • And there it is again See? According to this poster it is me that is doing what they are in reality doing…

                  So hilbilly after accusing me of insulting the others who have attacked me relentlessly since showing proof of outright propaganda posted here…

                  Now hillbilly says: Your website sucks fuel rods! Talking about my website like a child eh?

                  Yea you don't need me to discredit you, you do a perfectly fine job of that all on your own…

                  Grow up child like posters….

                    I reported your website to Microsoft.

                    In my spare time.

                    Tee hee.

                    • You really are a idiot huh hillbilly…

                    • HillbillyHoundDog HillbillyHoundDog

                      FYI, when a person is attacked relentlessly, finally gets up, brushes themselves off and reaches for a weapon, it's called self-defense. I don't know where you come from, but 'round here, you don't get to beat people up and then cry and whine and attempt to have them arrested for assault when they fight back.

                      My weapon is tort.

                      And YOU are so far in, you can't see out.

                  • HillbillyHoundDog HillbillyHoundDog

                    If you could scroll up and address the real issues I have plainly set out for you and comment with some substance other than anti-nuke bullying and harassment, that would be great.

                    Do you own this site?
                    Have you ever had personal communication with ENE admin/owner or anyone who has?
                    What country are you in?
                    Why do you use a German co to power your site?
                    What is it called when a person donates money to an entity that has advertised itself as something it is not?
                    Etc. Etc.

                    • I don't have time to feed the animals…

                      But I will say this, the whole German website thing is a fake as that fox news video…

                      And it's just more proof of disinformation spread by the completely inept and immature intentionally by the disinformation spreaders that post here on ene…

                      …And you've all made it obvious who you are after this little totally inaccurate and fake slander campaign…

                      And you falsely reported my site to microsoft?

                      Well now we are onto something actionable in court and you apparently are too dumb to even know that you just admitted in writing that you've slandered my business…

                      Wow do we really want to get our information from people like you on life and death subjects?

                      A true expose of stupidity followed by a childish "Tee hee" from a fool…

                    • HillbillyHoundDog HillbillyHoundDog

                      Hippie, We all know you have waaay too much time on your hands. You're just afraid to answer hard questions.

                      And you don't scare me with court, as I would love to. Be my guest. You have my email and other personal info and I await… with cupcakes. In the mean-time, intimidation is more icing.

                      What I admitted to in writing, is that your website has been reported to Microsoft (by me). If that were actionable (it's not) it would be "libel", not slander. BUT you would have to prove that I knew whatever I said about you was a lie, when I said it. What did I say? Again, not actionable in this case, but good luck anyways.

                      Another problem there is, yellow-bellied lizard bully, every derogatory thing I say about you or your TRASH FLASH website, I believe to be true. 100%. In all earnest, I feel you to be one of the most creepy and threatening individuals I have ever encountered on the net. I propose a raise.

                      Have you ever had personal contact with ENE admin/owner or anyone who has?

                      I'd like to set a record straight.

                      All the evidence that I have viewed so far shows that lamarsworldissosmall has nothing to do with ENENews.com except to scoot it's filthy butt all across ENENews's site.

                      LAMARS WORLD MALL is hosted by HOSTMONSTER.COM in Provo, Utah.

                      ENENews.com is hosted by WestHost in Providence, UT.

                      With that said I'll just say eNom Inc. operates as a wholesale domain name registrar.

                      Drawing from that, my first guess is that admin had to protect his personal life, given the nature of the beast…

                      I step back and look to see what has been accomplished by those who care more than others.

                    Your God = Zion controlled Matrix , and you are here to obstruct resistence..

                    • False info from a false info spreader.

                      Let's take a quick look at these fake statements in order shall we?

                      You are just a clone of Trump on about everything.

                      False I'm my own person with no political affiiations.

                      your bullying

                      So when you tell a provable lie and are called out on it and shown the proof of lie, that's bullying? And your own statements above and for the record shows nothing but child like bullying.

                      your positioning yourself as a victim

                      Not posisioning myself, getting harassed for showing proof of a fake video.

                      your dishonesty

                      So by showing the truth and proving lies that makes me dishonest, makes about as much sense as anything else you have falsely accused me of.

                      your racisme

                      Did you mean racism? Wow find one instance of a racist statement from me.

                      It's fools that I'm predigest against.

                      And everyone with a brain is too.

                      the hiding of your real agenda

                      My ajenda is to expose fools and propaganda spreaders. No secret there it's only a mystery for those that couldn't find a fact in a barrel of facts.

                      your selfgloryfication

                      Showing ones qualifications is selfgloryfication when challenged to prove? Wow you really are in trouble with your mind there son.

                      your despisement for anyone with a different opinion etc etc..

                      I despise a lie! I despise anyone that spreads lies and I despise anyone that will put someone down for showing the truth. So I guess you got one thing kinda right in those…

                      2017 showed the global clean energy revolution is unstoppable no matter what Trump does
                      The solar, wind, battery, and electric car “miracles” have gone mainstream.

                      The competition for the biggest clean energy story of 2017 is intense.

                      Building and running new renewable energy is now cheaper than just running old coal and nuclear plants. The lowest price for solar power last year is the highest price now. Battery prices were cut in half just since 2014.

                      And always that superiority attitude , that claim of having a monopoly on the truth that gives you the right to namecalling and attacking other peoples post's..calling it exposing false truth's and what not..protecting powerabusers in the status quo..when you have been proven wrong like any other mortal or much more..

                      There is no point in debating dishonest people , especially when they have proven (and stated themselves) there is nothing they wouldent do to achieve their goals..

                      "“A Nuclear Regulatory Commission official said Tuesday that a team of…reactor safety engineers would likely recommend that the commission continue working on replacing a portion of its inspections with a self-assessment regime for operators of commercial nuclear power plants.” RTO adds, “Tony Gody, NRC director of reactor safety in Region II (Southeast), said Dec. 12 that ‘the working group agrees that self-assessment, if implemented properly, can be very effective in finding latent conditions’ and probably will be recommending further exploration of how to get there via a pilot program.” Gody’s remarks came at the “end of the agency’s second public hearing in two months on the use of licensee self-assessments in the NRC engineering inspection program and other changes in the reactor oversight process.”"

                      "But the self-assessment concept is unpopular with some neighbors of Entergy’s Pilgrim nuclear plant in Massachusetts, one of three plants in the country classified in Column 4 — the worst performers in NRC’s grading system.

                      A citizens group, Pilgrim Watch, cited an email written by the leader of a federal inspection team, who wrote that “the plant seems overwhelmed just trying to run the station.” The internal email became public mistakenly.

                      “Pilgrim provides the perfect example why NRC nuclear safety inspections are necessary and why industry self-assessments would be dangerous,” the group wrote NRC. “Pilgrim cannot be counted on to conduct any complete or accurate self-assessment. The NRC’s own records prove that Pilgrim has regularly and consistently failed to follow established procedures, to report problems, or to take corrective actions even when the NRC tells it to do so.”"

                    • So here's one that exemplifies the recipe of total fake information.

                      After posting fake after fake after fake the poster now realized it's transparent and tries to evoke a smigin of fact for further credibility to continue a child like disinformation agenda.

                      Ex:
                      "Wait. I found this. Does this count, Boss?

                      https://antinuclear.net/2017/12/15/significant-radiation-dose-received-by-lucas-heights-worker-in-nuclear-accident/"

                      So now knowing in their knower they are discredited, it's a common practice to change the subject to something with some fact in it.

                      But I'm referred to as the boss, this will evoke a psychological reaction to the other misinformed to think I'm something to be disgusted by.

                      Just another simple ploy to get unfortunate folks sucked into by those that would prefer you will believe anything they say. To control you to believe a martian fairy tale.

                      But don't worry ole crazy ones, you are in the true minority of foolishness that most will not entertain.

                      This is something out of a nightmare sociological socialist play book and a practice that is soon to stop. Those that participate in these brain washing things will be accounted for. It's FAKE INFORMATION that damages everything it comes in contact with! Kinda like nuclear waste only worse. It allows it to continue.

                      And there ya have it. Fakers fake and true is true, even if it sounds good, fake is still fake, there is no good in it, just a juvenile or nefarious agenda.

                      Experience after the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station has shown that there is a need to establish radiation protection criteria for radioactive waste management consistent with the criteria adopted for the remediation of existing exposure situations.

                      Interesting, have been making some tinctures and herbal concoctions for the past several years.

                      Mostly things to prevent tick bites and to help with Lyme, like Teasel root tincture.

                      Did a lot of wildcrafting when we lived up in Humboldt County. Lots of herbs there, large supply, not much demand or population pressure.

                      Most people there considered teasel to be a weed.

                      Black walnut is great for parasite elimination.

                      HoTaters.

                      Yes and no. Iodine is naturally inherent to black walnuts.

                      To add it would iodize the juglone and other properties. For whatever reason, those properties work in synergy without cancelling each other out- in nature. Pretty neat how nature does things, ey?

                      I cover a stainless pot of GREEN black walnuts with grain alcohol, (just as they start to fall in autumn), cover with cellophane (touching the liquid and nuts), cover with stainless lid and leave in a dark place for three days. Drain liquid into your containers and freeze. Freezing keeps the tincture green, as opposed to turning brown and thereby less potent. Though, it stays liquid due to the alcohol content. Oxygen and sunlight degrade the strength/color. This recipe is extra-strength.

                      I take two tsp in a glass of water every once in awhile and give plenty away every year. Sometimes, the trees do not produce, but I usually have enough to last in the freezer. BW powder is cheap and available to those with alcohol issues.

                      There is a myriad of information to find if you look, other than parasites and radiation/iodine…

                      Truly, a gift of nature.

    'Pending Tax Reform'

    "…This sets the stage for a vote next week. The U.S. corporate tax rate was changed upward moving to 21%. The top[ tax rate will be reduced marginally from 39.6% to 37%.

    The corporate alternative minimum tax will probably be repealed. The proposed $10,000 cap for state and local property tax deductions should survive and the cap on mortgage interest deductions will be set at $750,000 on home loans, and provide the owners of pass-through businesses with a tax rate of 20%.

    Of course, the criticism from Democrats is the typical Marxist slant that the Republican plan benefits the rich and corporations rather than the middle class. Small business employs 70% of the civil workforce and that is the engine that creates jobs. The top rate moves down from 39.6^ to just 36%, so that is nothing to write home about, yet the Democrats will do so anyway.
    The criticism from Democrats that the tax bill will benefit corporations is classic. What they fail to mention is that who is the biggest holder of corporate shares? PENSION FUNDS! So who gets the benefit? Predominantly the Middle Class – not the rich…

    …It was the Clintons who eliminated the right to go bankrupt on Student Loans, and then Obama put in the fine upon the youth if they refused to buy healthcare. The youth have been abused by the Democrats on a wholesale basis…"

    'Why the Dollar is not Fiat'

    "…Only a floating exchange rate system ends the fiat. So yes – that means as long as the “paper” dollar floats in value on world markets, it is not actually fiat any more than Bitcoin trading. The term “fiat money” means an arbitrary order or decree declaring the value to be fixed. The dollar was “fiat” when it was arbitrarily established by Roosevelt at $35 to the ounce of gold. Since 1971, the dollar floats and it is no longer fiat because that is the definition of a fixed arbitrary value.
    Today. as long as a currency floats, it is not an arbitrary declaration of its value by the government and is therefore not “fiat” as popularly stated by the hard money crew. This mythical idea that a currency should be a store of wealth has NEVER existed even once in history from one decade to the next. Those who argue for such a system are incapable of comprehending the business cycle and like Karl Marx want to freeze the system because they cannot cope with it.
    Unfortunately, people call paper money fiat because they do not understand the meaning of the term. What they are doing is complaining money does not remain a constant value as Marx tried to create."

    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

      the idea of a floating value for money works in favor of the wealthy who 'make money on money'.

      Say I want delayed trading capability…today I sell beans, a week from now I want to buy oranges. If the money or IOU has a fixed value…say a shell is worth a pound of beans or a pound of oranges, then the trade remains equitable. This is how you would trade among friends and family.

      But now if I find a way to create a flux…so that a shell buys more beans one week than oranges, and more oranges than beans another week, I can parlay or jack up my wealth playing the flux. Note that no NEW actual wealth was created, i.e. beans or oranges. The result is always the same…more for me equals less for you

      Hi razzz, have you heard of the dirty float re: currency values?

      Central banks always intervene to change the money supply when it's deemed a currency's value is not performing to expectations or what is desired.

      This tampering with the float is called a "dirty float" and in actuality the value of the dollar is almost never allowed to reach equilibrium without interference.

      It's all a big shell game IMHO.

        Central banks prefer to call it a managed float.

        What is a 'Dirty Float'

        "A dirty float is an exchange rate regime in which the country's central bank occasionally intervenes to change the direction or the pace of change of the country's currency value. In most instances, the intervention aspect of a dirty float system is meant to act as a buffer against an external economic shock before its effects become truly disruptive to the domestic economy. It's also known as a "managed float."!–break–From 1946 until 1971, many of the world's major industrialized nations participated in a fixed exchange rate system known as the Bretton Woods Agreement. This ended when President Richard Nixon took the United States off the gold standard on Aug. 15, 1971; since then, most major industrialized economies feature floating exchange rates."

        (Red)China does that as they pretend to allow their currency to float but panic and step in to try and support their yuan when it not priced to their liking. It is just to scary for them to really allow it to float (find its true value). Chinese are allowing their gold to be sold priced in yuan, that is an indirect way to see what the current value of yuan is, of course, after you do a conversion price of gold in current US$ then compare the current yuan price.

          The U.S., by consuming the resources and labors of the world, keeps the entire world in motion? So, if the U.S. population was magically wiped off the face of the earth, the world would stop. Interesting concept. Makes you wonder how the Indians, indeed the whole world was in motion before the U.S.

          Say I have an orchard and my family labors hard with it…but the neighbor consumes all my fruit, and pays my people pennies for labor. The neighbor says hes the only game in town, the only thing keeping me in motion. Now the neighbor family,..the Gambino family, they get wiped out by another mafia group. Now WE get to eat all the fruit and build houses for us instead of the crime family. Nobody is frozen in motion.

      The Santa Ynez mountains east of Santa Barbara are very tall, steep, and rugged. Not a great place to be hiking around with heavy firefighting gear, nor for fighting a fire.

      Santa Barbara and the small cities around there are lovely. It's a shame so much of the area is being destroyed. It has always seemed so peaceful when I've visited there.

    • This would be so nice for me. I'm in rural AZ at a senior living complex with wifi. I have to use an antenna to get an unreliable signal. It can really screw up posting on this and other sites. But I'd have to buy new hardware, that speed would fry what I have now. Ouch.

    • HoTaters HoTaters

      taffycat, you should push for fiber optic installation in your area. Or a 4G rollout.

      What happened to using fiber optic cable? High speed internet, high bandwidth, without the concerns of small microwave repeaters installed everywhere.

      In California, there has been massive pushback against this 5-G network.

      The problem is, the network will run microwave frequencies at extremely high frequencies, at mHz levels known to cause harm – similar to frequencies used for military weaponry.

      There would be small microwave repeaters installed everywhere – on top of city streetlights, power poles, in places where you would not expect it.

      The potential risk is unacceptable. See this for more information:

      http://www.kcra.com/article/cities-take-stand-against-california-bill-for-5g-antenna-placement/9568681

      Installing a 5G network on public property also removes the ability of cities and counties to have jurisdiction over what is installed there. So if this potentially harmful technology is installed, local governments (and people) ostensibly have NO power to control it or regulate it.

      https://fremont.gov/2987/Opposition-to-SB-649

      We fought SB 649 long and hard in California, and the battle is not over yet.

      Scientists for wired technology worldwide oppose SB 649

      http://scientists4wiredtech.com/2017/09/experts-worldwide-oppose-sb649/

      • HoTaters HoTaters

        A Quote from the hardwired scientists:

        "We are asking you to vote NO on SB 649. There is a substantial body of evidence that this technology is harmful to humans and the environment. The 5G millimeter wave is known to heat the eyes, skin and testes, and the ubiquitous placement of these towers will expose California’s population 24/7. The most vulnerable among us — the unborn, children, the infirm, the elderly and the disabled will be affected. It is also expected that populations of bees and birds will drastically decline.

        Ironically, the strongest among us, the firefighters, received an exemption from SB 649. After years of their stations being targeted for cell tower placement, SPECT brain scan testing among a group of California firefighters revealed abnormalities that included cognitive impairment. This translated to firefighters occasionally getting lost while driving their emergency equipment through the streets in the same town they grew up in. Infertility and miscarriages plagued the department. Perhaps most shocking of all, the cell tower near the station was measured at 1/1000th of the allowed limit set by the FCC.

        We support the fire station exemption of SB 649. If the firefighters are impaired, we are all at risk. Yet this exemption protects the strongest of the strong and forces the most vulnerable among us to live with the greatest exposure. We find these well-documented health hazards both real and unacceptable."

      • Centurylink hasn't got anything in this area of AZ, no DSL. Wifi is it, at least here in the complex it's free.

        • HoTaters HoTaters

          One way to protect yourself is to make sure you're not close to the WiFi router. And get an Ethernet connection for your apartment, so at least you're not being directly exposed to WiFi.

          The tech (if you have to pay one) will charge you to put in the Ethernet jack, but IMHO it would be worth it to avoid the WiFi exposure.

    EPA seeks input to rework rule on lead in drinking water

    The move is part of the Trump administration's policy of consulting with state and local officials, or national organizations that represent them, when developing regulations. While the administration is focused on reducing regulations on mining and drilling and other industries, Pruitt says he is focusing on what he calls the core duties of the EPA, which includes water pollution.

    The EPA is considering long-term and short-term revisions to the rule including replacement of lead pipes, improving corrosion control treatment requirements, and the role of filters where water is consumed.

    Lead is a neurotoxin that can damage brains and cause behavior and stomach problems. There is no safe level of lead in drinking water and children are particularly vulnerable, the Centers for Disease Control says.

    The Deep State's Christmas Present To America: Surveillance That Never Ends

    Section 702 has been used as an end-run around the Constitution to allow the government to collect the actual content of Americans’ emails, phone calls, text messages and other electronic communication without a warrant.

    Under Section 702, the government collects and analyzes over 250 million internet communications every year. There are estimates that at least half of these contain information about U.S. residents, many of whom have done nothing wrong. This information is then shared with law enforcement and “routinely used for purposes unrelated to national security.”

    Mind you, Section 702 gives the government access to the very content of your conversations (phone calls, text messages, video chats), your photographs, your emails.

    So beware of what you say, what you read, what you write, where you go, and with whom you communicate, because it will all be recorded, stored and used against you eventually, at a time and place of the government’s choosing. Privacy, as we have known it, is dead

    On any given day, the average American is now monitored, surveilled, spied on and tracked in more than 20 different ways by both government and corporate eyes and ears.

    Government watchdog: Trump administration illegally withheld funds for innovative energy research
    The program, which fosters emerging energy technologies, is a target for elimination by President Trump.

    The Department of Energy (DOE) instructed its officials to withhold $91 million from an energy program that the Trump administration had targeted for elimination, a clear and deliberate violation of a law that requires already-appropriated funds to be released, according to the Government Accountability Office (GAO).

    The fiscal-year 2017 funds were illegally withheld from Advanced Research Projects Agency for Energy (ARPA-E), a program founded in 2009 during the Obama administration that provides funds to early-stage energy technologies. The program was created to make sure that the United States maintained a competitive advantage in developing emerging energy technologies.

          If policymakers had stopped in 1960, pollution would have kept the nation’s rivers and streams unsafe for fishing or swimming. It was a time when Cleveland’s Cuyahoga River caught on fire due to decades of pollution from industrial waste. Acid rain was destroying New England forests. Homes had been built on toxic sites. Cities were smothered in smog.

          As a result of one environmental crises after another, the federal government implemented several important environmental regulations in the post-1960 era, including:

            ARPA-E Announces $20 Million Program
            To Lower Advanced Reactor Costs

            Oct. 26, 2017—The U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) this week announced up to $20 million in funding opportunities for innovative projects that can lower the cost to develop advanced nuclear reactors.

            The new ARPA-E program is called Modeling-Enhanced Innovations Trailblazing Nuclear Energy Reinvigoration (MEITNER) and was developed in close cooperation of DOE’s Office of Nuclear Energy. MEITNER projects will support the advanced reactor design community by developing technologies to accelerate fabrication and testing, make construction cheaper, and integrate high levels of automation and built-in safety measures across the plant to reduce operational costs, ARPA-E Acting Director Eric Rohlfing said.

            ARPA-E’s funding opportunity is encouraging interdisciplinary collaboration for its projects, calling on scientists, engineers, and practitioners from different organizations, scientific fields and technology sectors to form diverse and experienced project teams.

    Sea Shepherd's research vessel, Martin Sheen returns to the west coast of Canada for a second year as part of Operation Virus Hunter II — to study the impact that farmed salmon has on wild salmon populations in British Columbia. Working in collaboration with biologist Alexandra Morton, and indigenous peoples along the coast, Operation Virus Hunter puts a spotlight on a secretive industry with devastating impact.

    Established in 1977, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS) is an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organization. Our mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world's oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species.

    The purpose of Operation Virus Hunter II, is to investigate open net salmon farms that are carelessly contaminating coastal waters and infecting wild fish. Salmon farms operate along the migration routes of wild salmon and herring, disrupting their lifecycle; these farms occupy the territories of First Nation peoples who are fighting for the survival of wild salmon. Farmed salmon are unsustainable, and a serious threat to coastlines around the world.

    GOP sneaks provision into tax bill to benefit one college favored by Republican billionaires

    Tucked away on page 289 is a provision that would exempt certain colleges from a special tax on university endowments. It would only apply to colleges that: 1. Did not accept federal funds, and 2. Had an endowment of at least $500,000 per student.

    There appears to be only one educational institution in the entire country that would benefit: Hillsdale College.

    What’s so special about Hillsdale?

    The school has deep ties to Betsy DeVos, Trump’s education secretary, and her family. The DeVos clan founded Amway, which made them billionaires, and are large Republican donors. The Hillsdale student paper details the connections.

    Why does Hillsdale reject federal funds? For one thing, it allows them to ignore “federal regulations governing how to respond to sexual assault and banning discrimination based on sexual orientation.” (Notably, these are the same kind of regulations Betsy DeVos is seeking to undermine as education secretary.)

    The campus chaplain at Hillsdale once sent an all-school email calling for prayer against the “evil” of same-sex marriage. The president of the college, Arnn, referred to minority students as “dark ones” in a state legislative hearing.

      A Lump of Coal in the Internet’s Stocking: FCC Poised to Gut Net Neutrality Rules
      By Corynne McSherry, Kit Walsh, Mitch Stoltz, and Ernesto Falcon
      November 27, 2017

      In a new proposal issued last week, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) set out a plan to eliminate net neutrality protections, ignoring the voices of millions of Internet users who weighed in to support those protections. The new rule would reclassify high-speed broadband as an “information service” rather than a “telecommunications service” (remember, the FCC is forbidden from imposing neutrality obligations on information services). It would then eliminate the bright-line rules against blocking, throttling, and pay-to-play (as well as the more nebulous general conduct standard) in favor of a simplistic transparency requirement. In other words, your ISP would be free to set itself up as an Internet gatekeeper, as long as it is honest about it.

      This is a bad idea for many, many reasons. Here are a few.
      Net Neutrality Has Been a Pillar of the Open Internet

      The FCC’s decision to gut net neutrality protections isn’t just partisan business as usual; it’s a withdrawal from over a decade of work to protect Internet users from unfair practices by Internet service providers. While the FCC’s approach has changed over the years, its goal of promoting net neutrality did not.

      • HoTaters HoTaters

        (cont.)

        Two years ago, it finally adopted legally enforceable rules, most prominently bright-line prohibiting ISPs from blocking, throttling, and creating Internet “fast lanes” that would favor some sites and content over others. But, as the saying goes, “elections have consequences.” One consequence of the 2016 election is that the FCC has new leadership that feels free not just to change the rules, but to get rid of them altogether.

        Because the draft order repeals net neutrality rules altogether, it allows ISPs to block or throttle lawful content, or give the highest-paying websites and apps a better ability to reach customers’ devices, or to favor Internet traffic from the ISPs’ own subsidiaries and business partners, all without any legal repercussions. It paves the way for an Internet that works more like cable television, where wealthy insiders decide which speakers can reach a broad audience. A pay-to-play Internet means that smaller sites and apps, or startups without major funding, will be forced to negotiate with multiple ISPs to avoid their content being buried, degraded, or even blocked.

        The draft order claims that “latency-sensitive” applications will benefit from paying to connect to you faster and more reliably, while other apps and sites will continue to work as they do today….

        • HoTaters HoTaters

          (cont.)

          But without rules, nothing will require ISPs to give the same quality of service even to apps that pay the same amount, let alone those that can’t afford it. Content from an ISP’s business affiliates or favored partners will be able to get a fast lane no matter how much another website or app is willing to pay. The order justifies its conclusions by cherry-picking some economic analyses that support them, while ignoring the harms to free speech that flow from paid prioritization.

      "Net neutrality is internet freedom. I support that freedom. I dissent from this rash decision to roll back net neutrality rules. I dissent from the corrupt process that has brought us to this point. And I dissent from the contempt this agency has shown our citizens in pursuing this path today. This decision puts the Federal Communications Commission on the wrong side of history, the wrong side of the law, and the wrong side of the American public.

      The future of the internet is the future of everything. That is because there is nothing in our commercial, social, and civic lives that has been untouched by its influence or unmoved by its power. And here in the United States our internet economy is the envy of the world. This is because it rests on a foundation of openness…"

    'The Dow & Trump Tax Reform'

    "…The Trump Tax Reform reducing the corporate tax to 21% and taking effect January 1st, 2018 rather than being delayed until 2019, will be one of the biggest positive catalysts for US equities in decades. This is very interesting because it is now fundamentally validating what our computer has been projecting for highs going up to the 40,000 level on the Dow back in 2009.

    Many of the domestic and institutional investors overseas are NOT in this market. They will now be forced to reposition their portfolios once the bill is passed. How to Trade a Vertical Market is absolutely critical at this point in time. This is by no means going to be easy.

    We are already above the top of the Upward Channel and this will be 21,017.30. Our projections for 2017 stood at 25,648.40 and this rises to 28,045.71 for 2018. This is the next area of resistance. Once we push through that projection, the market will come back to test it. That will be the start of the slingshot upward.

    …NOBODY could have forecast this back in 2009. Barron’s though we were crazy back in 2011 forecasting the Dow was off to new record highs. Socrates can beat anyone, even me. So why will mainstream media not report our model’s success? Because it is not in the self-interest of themselves or government…"

    Residents Outraged as DHS Spraying Town With Chemicals—Using Them as Human Guinea Pigs http://thefreethoughtproject.com/residents-fear-homeland-security-biological-warfare-drills-will-turn-them-into-human-guinea-pigs/

    Newkirk, OK – A planned chemical/biological test by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has residents of a small Oklahoma town in fear that they are being used as human guinea pigs, as the federal government prepares to carry out plans for biological testing in the area next month.

    DHS announced plans to conduct chemical and biological testing near the border between Kansas and Oklahoma in January and February, and again in June and July, to determine how much protection people would receive from being inside a house or an apartment in the event of a biological terrorist attack, according to a statement on the Homeland Security website.

    The chemical agents DHS plans to use in the testing are titanium dioxide, fluorescent brightener, urea, and Dipel, an insecticide.

    [ one glaring concern ]

    Wineinger disputes the idea that these substances are harmless, noting that she’s allergic to urea and could be hospitalized if she’s exposed to it. She also expressed concern about individuals with asthma and fears the area’s crops could be contaminated by the chemicals.

    The Koch Brothers Think It's Time to Enter the Media Arena Watch out for more right-wing shaping of the media narrative.

    "However, Time remains a valuable asset. In an age when — under pressure from right-wing politicians and corporate interests — there is a battle in the media over what is factual, Time still plays a significant role in dispensing news. Furthermore, it is still read by many influencers over other media outlets."

    "The Koch brothers have not been the least bit aloof about working to influence the thinking of the American public. Their support of think tanks and advocacy groups, such as Americans for Prosperity — which they founded — indicate that they are keenly aware of the importance of shaping public perception about issues. This applies to the battle over facts and ideas, which ultimately influence elections and public policies."

    "So, given their combined wealth of nearly $100 billion, it is worth keeping a watchful eye on the Koch brothers' investment in Time and the evolving editorial content of the publication."
