Climate ‘Deniers’ Must Be Jailed or Killed

What is a ‘Climate Change Denier’? We have frequently noted in these pages that the environmental movement has a number of extremist elements that are anti-civilization in their outlook and have a very mean authoritarian streak. Among other things we have frequently cited the fact that many from the authoritarian Left have drifted into this (and other) movements after their sugar daddy in Moscow expired with the fall of the Soviet Union. However, this extremism is now increasingly going mainstream. After the earth’s climate has stopped warming for 18 years running (plus one month) in spite of atmospheric CO2 rising by one third over the same period, many apparently think the best course would be to shut up critics by force.
Let us first define the people who are on the receiving end of the derogatory ‘denier’ term (it is derogatory because it reminds of the term ‘holocaust denier’ and it is clear that this is the reason it was picked). None of them ‘deny’ that the climate is changing. It would be a foolish thing to assert, given that the climate has always changed and always will. The scientists who try to debunk climate alarmism are simply not alarmist.
The vast bulk of them concedes that human activity likely has some influence on the planet’s climate, but they believe that there is no certainty about the size of this influence, and whether CO2 (which the alarmists have declared to be the main ‘climate forcing’ agent) really has all that much to do with it. The paleoclimate record clearly suggests that this is not the case, as CO2 increases in the atmosphere have always followed warming periods with a considerable lag and not led them in a single instance. Moreover, the historical climate record – almost regardless of how far back one looks – shows that the earth’s climate has frequently been far warmer than today, long before anyone thought of burning fossil fuels.
In short, the skeptical argument boils down to: we do not know enough to indict human activity. Much of what we observe could simply be natural variation. Therefore, we should think twice before we take actions that threaten to destroy economic growth and ultimately industrial civilization. By now a powerful record of evidence is backing the skeptics up. Alarmists have invented 52 different excuses over just the past half year or so as to why their ‘predictive computer models’ have failed to predict the ‘pause’ – or why, indeed, they have failed to predict anything at all (the latest, and probably funniest excuse yet, is that they ‘could have predicted it if they had a time machine and could go back into the past’).
Again, it is important to remember here: not a single alarmist prediction made since the late 1970s has come true – not one. However, alarmism sells: it sells newspapers, it is loved by the political class, as it justifies ever greater government interference in the economy, and it is therefore the source of a huge gravy train of scientific grants. Many scientists try to be as alarmist as possible for this very reason: it keeps the grant money flowing. When they think no-one’s looking, they admit to each other what a ‘travesty’ it all is (their words, from the ‘Climategate’ e-mails).

The GMO Labeling Conundrum

It would seem that large agricultural corporations touting genetically modified organisms (GMOs) they claim possess enhanced benefits for farmers and consumers would be proud to differentiate their products on the shelves from organic and traditionally produced food. However that is not the case. Not only is big-ag attempting to hide the true nature of their products, but the many big-business food processors that incorporate GMO ingredients into their final products are likewise attempting to mislead consumers.
The obvious fear is that consumers will avoid GMO products in favor of those not labeled as modified. While other arguments have been made in attempts to justify not properly labeling food as genetically modified or not, the underlying theme appears to be the belief of big-ag that consumers’ ignorance over the alleged safety of GMO products threatens their business and with it, innovations they claim are a benefit not only to their bottom lines, but to all of humanity.
Of course, beneath the layers of this ‘belief,’ is the reality that their products do not offer any overwhelming benefit to humanity, and in fact, in many ways, have become a scourge to humanity. Additionally, peripheral arguments, such as GMO being in no way different to organic products, thus there is no need to label them, are so divergent from logic and commonsense that a general suspicion and distrust has formed in the collective mind of the public in regards to big-ag and those pushing their products.
To counter the growing ire of the general public, big-ag has raised an army of professional propagandists peddling pro-GMO talking points in the form of books, websites, mainstream media reportage and even while posing as ordinary citizens simply expressing their ‘opinions’ in comment sections and upon what are supposed to appear as independent personal blogs. They, to no one’s surprise, repeat verbatim the talking points proposed by big-ag itself, and while anti-GMO activists eagerly wade into the fray with this army of propagandists, the only relevant question that should be asked seems to escape them all.
If GMO is Better, Why Not Label it So You Can Find and Consume it Easier?

‘Dark zones’ in GMO technology research allow secret development of deadly bioweapons

(NaturalNews) New evidence has emerged to suggest that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are a key factor in the spread of deadly pathogens like Ebola. The current Ebola outbreak appears to be a direct product of what former Soviet microbiologist Dr. Ken Alibekov calls “dark zones” in GMO technology that allow pathogens to be deliberately weaponized to harm humans. Dating back to the 1970s, the U. S. government has been involved in covert bioweaponry programs that involved deliberately creating “AIDS-like viruses” to be used during warfare, according to a prominent professor of plant pathology. One such virus is Ebola, a manufactured bioweapon patented and owned by the U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the vaccine license rights of which are owned by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The CDC patent for Ebola can be viewed here:Google.com. Dr. Cyril Broderick, formerly of the University of Liberia’s College of Agriculture and Forestry but now teaching at Delaware State University, cites Dr. Leonard Horowitz’s book Emerging Viruses: AIDS and Ebola — Nature, Accident or Intentional? to make the claim that the U. S. government has actually been testing its manufactured bioweapons on Africans for many decades, under the guise of promoting vaccines and “public health.”

Navajo Nation Claws Back Half a Billion From US Federal Mafia

After a century of being taken to the cleaners by the US federal government, mining and energy giants, along with the nuclear power industry, the Navajo Nation has managed to claw back some of what is rightfully theirs.
The historic legal victory address the issue of past mismanagement, but it still leaves the door open for the tribe to pursue more funds to deal with the government’s physical mess left behind regarding water, and uranium/radioactive pollution left on its reservation.

Past uranium mining and ‘leach mining’ operations went mostly unregulated throughout the Navajo Nation.
Residents and property owners have been directly affected by groundwater pollution and radiation releases from uranium mills and piles, forced to deal with the environmental health from impacts of past uranium development. Issues like water contamination from uranium mining have largely gone unresolved, even though they have posed a direct threat to the natural and cultural survival in parts of the Navajo lands.
It’s important for readers to know that beyond the nuclear power industry, the final destination of all this uranium is in military nuclear weapons – missiles and bombs. The nuclear industry is both dirty and destructive at every point in the supply/production chain.

Japan Declares Level 3 Emergency, At Least One Dead After Volcano Erupts In Central Japan

When one thinks of Japan and natural disaster, the things that usually come to mind are earthquakes, tsunamis, radioactive lizards, the occasional massive nuclear power plant explosion. Not volcanoes – those are usually delegated to the sole country that dared to give bankers the middle finger, Iceland. And yet, overnight Japan declared a level 3 alert (on a scale of 1 to 5) when a volcano in central Japan erupted, sending ash clouds down the mountain’s slope for more than 3 kilometers. According to RT, at least one person has died and 70 were injured, while aircraft have been forced to divert to avoid the dangerous area. Medics confirmed the death of at least one person, while 70 more were reported to be injured, NHK reported. Thirty of the injured have been sent to hospital in critical condition, health officials added. One can only hope there were no nuclear power plants in the immediate vicinity of the volcano.
According to Japan’s NHK, the Ontake volcano on the border of Nagano and Gifu prefectures, 200 kilometers west of Tokyo, started erupting at about 11:53 local time (02:53 GMT). The Japanese TV outlet released the following video showing the volcano spewing thick, gray smoke into the air.

Global Climate Hysteria

Leftists on the March The crazies are evidently everywhere. After 18 years of zero global warming, global climate hysterians have decided that we should no longer debate the finer points of all those climate models that have so completely failed to predict any of this. While scientists have by now forwarded altogether 52 different ‘explanations’ (read: guesses, or rather excuses) about where the ‘missing heat has disappeared to’, a great many people seem to have made up their minds already and don’t want to wait for any progress in what appears to be a science that produces an ample amount of papers, but seems to actually not really certain about a great many things just yet.
Instead they are demanding action, and they want it now. What action? That is not 100% clear, but most of the organizations taking part in worldwide demonstrations over the weekend had the term ‘justice’ in their name, asByron York points out in the Washington Examiner. That is usually not a good sign – your wallet and your liberty are likely to suffer in order for others to be able to properly provide all this justice in your name.
Supported by a cast of usual suspects – various deluded Hollywood celebrities, Al Gore (usually the guarantor of cold weather wherever he shows up, in spite of his giant carbon footprint), socialist NY mayor Bill de Blasio, and a platitudes-spouting Ban Ki-Moon (who apparently heads the UN at present), every leftist issue one can think of was apparently promoted. The ‘climate change’ banner, which they say is the defining issue of our times, apparently manages to unite quite a disparate group of would-be planners.

Keiser Report: Desperate Times (E655)

The following video was published by RT on Sep 18, 2014
In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss that only those who can leave behind everything they have ever believed in can hope to escape the coming desperation. From buying water to keep your plants green in a drought to fracking for natural gas at a loss, however, it appears very few are willing to leave behind all that they believe. In the second half, Max interviews Bill Powers, author of ‘Cold, Hungry and in the Dark: Exploding the Natural Gas Supply Myth,’ about the zero percent interest rate that keep people in the dark on the high costs of fracking and the coming 70s style energy crisis due to growing demand based on fundamental lies.

A Widespread Power Failure Plus An Ebola Outbreak Would Become America’s Extinction Level Event

On November 13 and 14 of 2013, DHS and NERC conducted a simulated power grid takedown drill. Despite the fact the drill happened over 10 months ago and was well-publicized, the results have never been released. Additionally, many of us were concerned when we learned that the Russians and the Chinese were allowed to ‘participate’ in the drill. Even more concerning is the result of the Grid Ex II drill which demonstrated that if a widespread power outage was accompanied by a bio-terror event, such as a release of Ebola, the impact would overwhelm our nuclear power industry and the consequences could prove devastating.
After 10 months of secrecy, the results of the drill are beginning to leak. Over the past six months, I have received various communications from nuclear power plant whistleblowers, who have warned me about ongoing FEMA visits to the nuclear power plants across the United States. The visits are being triggered as a consequence to the results of the Grid Ex II drill. All of the visits coincide with Nuclear Power Plants which lie on earthquake fault lines! Here is an excerpt from one these sources.

Why King Coal Will Keep Its Crown

For climate change activists and those hoping for an energy future dominated by renewables or even less-polluting natural gas, the death of coal cannot come quickly enough. But with coal still the dominant form of cheap electricity throughout the world, it is unlikely the bogeyman of climate change will disappear anytime soon.
That’s because the price of coal, compared to other fuels, is just too good to refuse. Just look at China, where the country’s double-digit economic growth has largely been fueled by coal, which fulfills 60 percent of its energy mix.
According to a chart showing the levelized cost of energy — the price at which electricity must be generated from a source to break even — coal is the second-cheapest form of energy behind hydropower, at $40 per megawatt hour.

One of the most innovative cities in the world [you’ll never guess]

September 17, 2014 Talca, Chile
[Editor’s Note: This is the first in a multi-part series on some of the top Startup ecosystems in the world] When Chris D. came up with a great idea for his startup he was already thinking outside the box.
But his innovation didn’t stop there. His thought process extended far beyond the business idea into WHERE to best execute his plan.
He was already established in New York. And had he followed the conventional wisdom, that’s where he would have set up shop.
But then again, doing things differently and better than others is the hallmark of a great entrepreneur.
Comparing costs, lifestyle, and entrepreneurial environments, he found that by leaving the country he could have stronger opportunities and a better work environment for half the cost.
And it was anything but a sacrifice

USDA rules will allow chicken factories to conduct their own inspections

Apparently overburdened with having to police the filthy factory farm industry in accordance with the law, the U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has decided to simply hand over the inspection reigns to processing plants themselves, according to new reports. Updated “food safety” guidelines will soon entrust poultry processing plants with the responsibility of conducting their own food safety inspections, which means more feces, Salmonella and other contaminants in factory food. The new USDA rules were hailed by Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, a vocal proponent of factory farming and genetically modified organisms (GMOs), as some kind of boon for food safety. The former Iowa governor told reporters that having poultry processing plants police themselves, rather than be inspected by third-party auditors, will result in food being safer than ever. The new rules “will increase the chances of us detecting problems by placing the burden of finding [contaminants] such as salmonella on the plants,” he stated, in complete seriousness. Currently, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) periodically places auditors on poultry plant processing lines to look for defective birds, feces and other public health threats in order to snag them before they end up at the grocery store. On average, government poultry inspectors track 130 birds per minute, an amount that makes it close to impossible to fully inspect every single bird.

Over 2 trillion becquerels of radioactive waste flowed from Fukushima plant into Pacific in just 10 months

At least 2 trillion becquerels’ worth of radioactive material flowed from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant into the Pacific Ocean between August 2013 and May 2014, plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) has admitted. The rate of release was 10 times higher than TEPCO’s pre-meltdown threshold for radioactive material. A becquerel is a unit for measuring radioactive material that corresponds to one unit of radioactive decay per second. It is a way of describing how much radiation is being emitted by radioactive material, in contrast to measuring the mass or volume of the material itself, the energy carried by the radiation or the biological impact of exposure.
Radioactive sludge accumulating in bay In March 2011, the Fukushima plant suffered multiple meltdowns triggered by a massive earthquake and tsunami. Since then, TEPCO has struggled to contain the flow of radioactive water away from the plant. Currently, radioactive water is known to be leaking out of reactor buildings and downstream into the ocean. It is also suspected to be leaking into the ground from the plant, and flowing underground to the ocean from there.

Desperate Californians steal water from fire hydrants as rich community pays half a million dollars for overwatering lawns

The ongoing water crisis in California has sparked an apparent crime wave in some parts of the state, with desperate residents illegally taking water from fire hydrants in the middle of the night to keep their lawns green and their animals happy. Reports indicate that, in some areas, as much as 10 percent of the water supply has gone missing, presumably due to theft, a premonition of much worse things to come if rains remain at bay. The city of Lemoore, for instance, a community of some 25,000 people south of Fresno, has seen numerous water thefts in recent weeks — a growing black market for water amidst one of the worst droughts in California history. According to The Hanford Sentinel, thieves are believed to be attaching hoses to fire hydrants throughout the city and pumping water into large plastic tanks affixed to the back of trucks. This water is then resold in other areas, or used to maintain lawns and landscapes where water restrictions prevent such activity from occurring legally. According to Harlin Casida, the mayor of nearby Avenal, there has been a marked increase in the number of trucks with such tanks roving throughout the area.“We don’t know that we’re having a problem, but we’re seeing activity around fire hydrants,” stated Lemoore public works director Dave Wlaschin to the media. “It just makes you think.”

Food brand update: Annie’s sells out to General Mills while Barbara’s gets its cereals Non-GMO Project Verified

General Mills, one of the most deceptive food companies in the world and a processed food giant that funds efforts to block GMO labeling transparency, is reportedly purchasing Annie’s for $820 million. [1]Annie’s, based in Berkeley, California, is a well-known organic food brand that has long been favored by organic consumers. General Mills, on the other hand, works hand in hand with the Grocery Manufacturers of America, a GMO food industry front group that engages in criminal money laundering operations to make sure consumers remain ignorant about the toxic GMOs hidden in the foods they buy. As with all such deals, the question becomes one of which company will influence the other the most. Will General Mills take over Annie’s and exploit the brand while cheapening its ingredients and loading up Annie’s products with hidden GMOs? Or will General Mills respect the Annie’s brand and use it as a way to shift its business practices into more ethical foods that avoid GMOs and other toxic ingredients?Most observers would say General Mills, like nearly all mega-corporations, will prioritize profits over ethics. After all, General Mills is the same company that launched “TOTAL Pomegranate Blueberry” cereal which contained neither pomegranates nor blueberries. This is a company that appears to have no motivation to be honest with consumers.

How Would Saul Alinsky Have Handled ISIS?

Obama’s pledge to ‘destroy’ ISIS would have been more credible if it had come from the Ames, Iowa police chief, or the head of the Sacramento VFW. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for destroying these radioactive cockroaches – and the sooner the better, since they grow bolder and more numerous by the day. But even the police chief – and for that matter, the librarian, the PTA chairman in Tallahassee and the dog catcher in Turlock – know that we cannot hope to even hinder ISIS, much less destroy it, with air strikes alone. Leave it to our dangerously inept commander-in-chief to assure the enemy in advance that there will be no U. S. boots on the ground. Instead, Obama has purported to threaten them with an international coalition that in fact does not exist and which, even if

it did, would lack the take-no-prisoners mindset required to exterminate an enemy as savage as ISIS. More likely is that Obama’s politically calculated four-point plan will strike not fear, but contempt and disdain in the hearts of the enemy. It will soothe their febrile brains like poetry from the Rubaiyat, perhaps inspiring them to believe that planting ISIS’ flag on the roof of the White House lawn is not such a crazy dream after all.

‘Water mafia’ in California’s future? Residents may soon be forced to buy water on the black market just like in India

In recent days, residents of Los Angeles and its surrounding communities got to experience a rare treat — rainfall — but of course, it was far too little to do much to alleviate the state’s ongoing brutal drought. That said, there is some concern that water may become so scarce — and so valuable — that its distribution and sale might be taken over by a Mafia-like criminal enterprise, just like what is currently taking place in India. According to The Associated Press (AP) a “water mafia” has risen up to fill the dearth of water during India’s annual hot season:Every summer, when Minoo Phakey’s water runs out, she does what most people do in her middle-class neighborhood: She calls the mafia.
Within an hour, a man in a tanker arrives, carrying a load of dubious water drawn illegally from the city’s groundwater. In India’s capital city, the water availability situation is routinely direCurrently, India is experiencing its annual summer heat water shortage, and right now, the water mafia is making bank in the capital city of New Delhi. AP says that as many as 2,000 illegal water tankers hit the city streets daily, to supply millions of people whose water taps have run dry.

Latest Scotland Poll Closes Gap Further: 49% Would Vote For Independence, 51% Against; Cable Wobbles

Yesterday’s YouGov poll, which saw the “No” camp regain the lead with 52% of the vote, was said by some to be the end of the “Yes” momentum observed last weekend when the Yes posted its first majority since polling began, Then moments ago, the momentum in the momentum changed once again, with the Guardian releasing the latest Scottish referendum poll by ICM which took place between September 9-11 polling a “a representative sample of 1,000 people”, and where the vote was said to be “too close to call“, as the margin collapsed once again, this time shifting the momentum in favor of the Yes vote, which received 49% of the vote, and No getting 51%, however 17% of the voters are “yet to make up their minds.”
From the Guardian:
Despite a week of intense political campaigning by pro-union politicians and repeated warnings from business about the dangers of independence, the poll finds support for no on 51% and yes on 49% once don’t knows were excluded.
The Guardian/ICM poll is based on telephone interviews conducted between Tuesday and Thursday, the first such survey ICM has conducted during the campaign. Previous polls suggesting that the race for Scotland could go to a photo-finish have been based on internet-based surveys.
The period of the survey not only witnessed the three UK party leaders absenting themselves from prime minister’s questions to campaign in Scotland, but also a growing rumble of news stories about the economic risks of independence: Mark Carney of the Bank of England gave new warnings over the currency, some financial institutions such as RBS signalled readiness to move their headquarters out of Edinburgh, and there have been warnings about a mortgage drought.

Over 80% Of California Is Now In Extreme Drought

Just how dry is California? Here is The LA Times showing every map of California released by the U. S. Drought Monitor since 2011 (the last time there was any drought conditions). More than 80% of California is in extreme drought, according to the U. S. Drought Monitor, and the state’s condition isn’t expected to improve in the near future; and 100% of California remains at least in drought for at least the 4th month in a row… and it’s spreading to the rest of the nation.
