New order = too late

The young die, the old get senile, and babies cry.....all this and more in the new episode of : As The World Burns

Y'all have a Happy Radiationgiving Day......am I supposed to give thanks?
obviously the entire international nuclear complex lied about the Fukushima explosions.   They were "steam" explosions, but probably other explosive mechanisms were involved as well.  Hydrogen, chemical, steam. So why would they prefer that we think they were just hydrogen explosions?  

 The reactors for Units 1, 2, and 6 were supplied by General Electric, those for Units 3 and 5 by Toshiba, and Unit 4 by Hitachi. All six reactors were designed by General Electric. 

There was a coordinated, international effort to downplay the risk perception of the public,  most notably by declaring the unit 4 spent fuel a non issue when it was a full on catastrophe. 

There are more of those reactor designs in operation.      Its all about the profit...

That kind of coordinated lying is correctly called a conspiracy.  Many of the outright lies from TEPCO are admitted to.  Still, they managed to pull off the unit 4 spent fuel pool lie.  

When high profits come from dealing in super poisons,   then super poisons will be foisted on the people.  Moral of the story; never build the business model around poison.  They'll be tellin' you plutonium will save the world from carbon dioxide....and the people will believe it!

             "Tear gas is forbidden as a weapon of war under the 1993 Chemical Weapons Convention, but its use on civilians worldwide continues to grow, with the ISF and U.S. prisons among the leaders."
     Get it..... safe for civilians, pesky bunch of no goods. Big sales!

       Less lethal...meh.
It appears that scientists are gaining understanding.   I just read today that  "plants are critical to earth ecosystems."

Who would have thought?   

"almost a third (31.7%) of the 22,036 vascular plant species studied are potentially threatened with extinction, and an additional 33.2%  could be threatened in the near future."

Finish this sentence "many plants are threatened with extinction due to ------ -----"

If your mind said "climate change",   you can thank the constant repetition of that by the news media.

Got insurance ..? Wait a minute here... who doesn't have insurance..? Ok nuclear has Price Anderson...hmmmm. Ok ok I get it now it's the tax payers. Their insurance is eminent domain and jail....no wonder taxes are so popular.

The name of the game is this: Corporations present themselves as humble and caring elements integral to society with a fierce determination to “do better.” Rather than refusing to comply with ethical environmental and social conduct, which only serves to tarnish brand image, the corporations embrace and welcome all criticisms. This stratagem is made even more effective when CEOs unabashedly take the first opportunity in any given situation to point out the harmful impacts of their industry, articulated with deep concern, followed by a laundry list of all the magnificent things the corporation is looking at for the future that they believe will alleviate environmental degradation and unbridled exploitation.

 an organisation called Avoided Deforestation Partners launched what they blandly describe as “an agreement on policies aimed at protecting the world’s tropical forests”. Under this agreement, “companies would be eligible to receive credit for reducing climate pollution by financing conservation of tropical forests”. It is a loophole allowing industry to write a cheque and continue to pollute

When, in years to come, the history is written of how humanity came to lose the battle against climate change, May 20th 2009 will go down as the day that the tide decisively turned against planetary survival. For this was the day that those with the influence and power who could have taken a stand of moral principle, and who could have demanded the kind of action needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the US, decided not to. Instead, they offered some of the biggest, filthiest planetary polluters an ‘easy out’, by lobbying the US Congress jointly with them, that US carbon emissions should be offset against oversees credits for ‘avoided deforestation’.

The following organisations signed the agreement: American Electric Power, Conservation International, Duke Energy, Environmental Defense Fund, El Paso Corporation, National Wildlife Federation, Marriott International, Mercy Corps, Natural Resources Defense Council, PG&E Corporation, Sierra Club, Starbucks Coffee Company, The Nature Conservancy, Union of Concerned Scientists, The Walt Disney Company, Wildlife Conservation Society, and the Woods Hole Research Center.

Climate; restoring whale populations to pre-whaling times. ‘When it comes to saving the planet,’ reads a recently published International Monetary Fund study, ‘one whale is worth thousands of trees.’ The equation is simple. Whales accumulate carbon in their bodies during their lifespan of 60 years. On average, each great whale sequesters 33 tons of CO2, which ends up at the bottom of the ocean when the animal dies.

"But there’s more. Phytoplankton thrives on the iron and nitrogen found in cetacean excrements. ‘These microscopic creatures not only contribute at least 50 per cent of all oxygen to our atmosphere, they do so by capturing an estimated 40 per cent of all CO2 produced [by mankind],’ the study argues. In other words, having the original five million whales defecating in our oceans (instead of the current 1.3m) would be a blessing."


Straight from the bowels of the evil IMF!  https://www.tesfanews.net/how-the-world-...oy-africa/

nevertheless,  if its true that the plankton absorb that much Co2 and that one whale is worth a thousand trees, and that in some cases we killed off 90% of them, this should  change the focus, to some extent, on how to solve the Co2 issue.

climate;  a healthy planet is the best hope for a pleasant climate.   Clouds plankton and microorganisms drive climate to a large extent
Plankton as a climate driver: A new view on past climate change

What to aspire to; a green, forested, pristine earth full of life and diversity.  Fresh air, puffy white clouds,  spring fresh water, the world alive with birds, insects, animals of all kinds and a thriving ocean.  Right now, if reports are to be believed, the Living World is 1/2 decimated or more.  

What to do about the climate crisis?  Demand that the big corporate/government bodies solve it with business as usual?
It is business as usual, and the mindset of mankind that causes the problem.  The profit model drives policy makers to corruption.  The policy makers control the people by force of law.  The way out is to deprive them of funding. Unfortunately, this would have to be done on a global scale and is unlikely to happen.  The climate issue has been turned into leverage for profit which will not result in a healthy planet.

Major feedback factors and effects of the cloud cover and the relative humidity on the climate
 "The changes in cloud cover or in the relative humidity explain almost all the global temperature changes. The result is confirmed with experimental observations. On the other hand, the sun and the change in the vegetation are probably controlling most of the changes in cloudiness and humidity."

Mankind lived through several ice ages.  Most recently,  "The Great Lakes began to form at the end of the last glacial period around 14,000 years ago, as retreating ice sheets exposed the basins they had carved into the land which then filled with meltwater. When the glaciers averaged about one kilometer thick, the glaciers moved towards canada and then it left behind big holes that filled with melted water, that became the great lakes."

The not so distant ancestors of native Americans, were already crossing the land bridge of what is now the Bering sea.   The carbon dioxide was at pre industrial levels.  The earth was alive.  It wasnt polluted, exploited, poisoned.  The climate was doing what it does...oscillate between ice ages and interglacial periods. Climate is not "constant" or in a state of steady equilibrium, it fluctuates.  We are still coming out of the last ice age. Rising carbon dioxide didnt take us out of the ice age.

"Deglaciation commenced in the Northern Hemisphere approximately 19,000 YBP and in Antarctica approximately 14,500 years YBP, which is consistent with evidence that glacial meltwater was the primary source for an abrupt rise in sea level 14,500 YBP"

Many dont like the heartland institute, but this is what they say about sea level rise

"A new report by Drs. Craig Idso, David Legates, and S. Fred Singer, released by The Heartland Institute, shows the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and other government and nongovernment organizations are wrong to claim sea levels are increasing at an unusually rapid rate due to anthropogenic climate change. The scientists analyzed peer-reviewed literature examining long-term data from tidal gauges and other sources and found the amount of sea level increase the Earth has experienced over the past century is not unusual historically, nor has the rate of rise increased significantly over the past few decades."

Regardless of that study, we can see there has been a dramatic increase in sea level since the last ice age.  The rise may have flattened out, but the causes and realities are very complex, as one might glean from the third link.

global sea levels have risen approximately 400 feet since the beginning of the end of the most recent ice age approximately 20,000 years ago.




My take-away is that the whole issue is more complicated than one can imagine, but a non polluting and exploiting policy is a no brainer.    A definite plus in today's era of the decreasing IQ

Union of Concerned Scientists support nuclear.  Its a good bet they are bought out
