Global Warming Does not exist – The Planet is Getting Colder

11 Nov

The election of Donald Trump to the presidency has raised to the forefront many issues. One of these issues is “Man Made Global Warming”.


Ever since his election, the Massive amount of money poured into the Global Man Made Warming Hoax, (Money coming mostly from the US) is transforming itself into Massive Activity (ONLINE) attempting to protect its turf, and the Cash Cow.

One of the proposed solutions to “Man Made Global Warming“, is to spray metal materials (Barium, Aluminum, Cesium, etc.) into the atmosphere to block the sun’s heat from getting to the surface of the planet.

We see it almost every day in every location (major metropolitan area) of the world.

The problem is: “Man Made Global Warming”, “Man’s CO2 Emissions cause global warming”, “The planet is heating up due to man’s impact”, are all not only wrong, they are contrived. They are contrived to make you believe that through a “carbon tax” the “contrived” problem will be solved.

In reality, the planet is cooling. The most influential impact on the temperature of the planet is the Sun. SUNSPOT activity is diminishing as it does over time and through natural cycles. We are going into a period of time where the global temperatures will decline and the farming patterns in the world will change.

Trump may propose that Myron Ebell head up the EPA. Trump also proposes defunding Climate initiatives through the UN.

Look to the skies to see the progress.


GeoEngineering The Planet

19 Oct

One of the greatest subjects not being discussed in the world, and certainly not here in the US, is the subject of geoengineering.

I seem to have recalled the subject of “cloud seeding” even as a child. What came to mind was the TV series Sky King. Looking back on it today, through the miracle of the internet, I come to find the show name of “Rainmaker”. How about that? In 1956, Sky King comes to the rescue of an Indian medicine man threatened with who knows what, if he could not produce rain. With the help of local weathermen, Sky King released silver iodide into the air and saved the day. Although this was a fictional story, it was based on activities going on at that time. Ref : The Checkered History of Weather and Climate Control


Fast forwarding to 2014, 58 years after this Sky King episode, most people would know nothing about the topic. Here in the US, the effective reduction in knowledge throughout the population has been extraordinary and effective over the years.

“Dumbness, to paraphrase the late senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, has been steadily defined downward for several decades, by a combination of heretofore irresistible forces. These include the triumph of video culture over print culture; a disjunction between Americans’ rising level of formal education and their shaky grasp of basic geography, science and history; and the fusion of anti-rationalism with anti-intellectualism.” Ref: The Age of American Unreason

But, as time marched on, so did the evolution of technology. Research continued around the world and as the subject of global warming became more prevalent, the possible implementation of such processes gained momentum.

What we know today :

  1. Particles in the atmosphere provide a barrier from the heat of the sun. For some people this seems intuitive, but for a more in depth analysis we can turn to a BBC Horizon production entitled “Global Dimming”.
    1. A scientist studying the impact of vapor trails on climate realized in the days following 9/11, the US average temperature went up as a result of the aircraft ban. This 1 degree increase over 3 days was statistically significant.
    2. Another scientist compared measurements taken during the 1950’s with measurements taken in the 1980’s and found a 22% reduction in solar energy hitting the earth’s surface.
    3. Farmers using pans of water to measure evaporation rates found in the 1990’s that the evaporation rates were declining despite increases in temperature. This was due to the fact that evaporation is more impacted by sunlight hitting the water than the actual air temperature.
    4. The “Global Dimming” was found to be attributed to air pollution. Therefore, areas of the planet that contained more air pollution were “cooler”. And areas with less air pollution were warmer.
  2. Despite Global Dimming, the average temperature of the planet has been increasing over the last 100 years. Interactive map below courtesy of NASA.


It is not clear what activities are being pursued around the world to implement geoengineering activities. There is a YouTube video on geoengineering from the Open Mind Conference 2012 that goes into both the technical aspects and the health aspects of chemicals in the atmosphere. A whistle blower from the US Air Force is telling her story, and one of the most visible and vocal experts on the subject is working to protect his integrity. The forces at work to keep dumbing down the public are doing their very best to discredit these sources and keep the topic off the table for public discussion.

Staying the Course

A Brief History of Fracking

4 Sep

In 1974, Congress passed the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). It is “… the main federal law that ensures the quality of Americans’ drinking water.” “The law was amended in 1986 and 1996 and requires many actions to protect drinking water and its sources: rivers, lakes, reservoirs, springs, and ground water wells.”


In 2005, Congress passed the 2005 Energy Policy Act. There was a clause written into that act, now commonly referred to as the “Halliburton Clause”, named after Dick Cheney’s relationship to Halliburton. It is interesting that Dick Cheney held no commercial positions in his entire life as a public servant, except for his 1995-2000 tenure as Halliburton’s CEO, served just prior to becoming Vice-President. Below is the “Halliburton Clause”:


Paragraph (1) of section 1421(d) of the Safe Drinking Water Act (42 U.S.C. 300h(d)) is amended to read as follows:

(1) UNDERGROUND INJECTION.—The term ‘underground injection’—

(A) means the subsurface emplacement of fluids by well injection; and

(B) excludes—

(i) the underground injection of natural gas for purposes of storage; and

(ii) the underground injection of fluids or propping agents (other than diesel fuels) pursuant to hydraulic fracturing operations related to oil, gas, or geothermal production activities.’’.

Now, as hydraulic fracturing around the world is being attributed to groundwater contamination, the industry is paying “hush money” to people who file legal cases against the industry. Drillers are trying to silence any criticism with regards to their activities.

This last week, a more public water issue came to light from a Forbes article concerning the death of some “Federally Protected Fish”.

The relationship between the “Halliburton Clause” in 2005 which gutted the SDWA and groundwater issues from hydraulic fracturing today, is not a coincidence.


Jimmy Carter and George Orwell

22 Aug

What do Jimmy Carter and George Orwell have in common? On Tuesday of this week, Carter said that the “US does not….. have a functioning democracy.” Taken from a recent book, George Orwell: A Life In Letters by Peter Davison, Orwell said in 1944, in the US, there is a “general indifference to the decay of democracy.” What was seen in 1944 by George Orwell as simply a decay of democracy has reached its fruition as no longer functioning per Jimmy Carter.

Other signs of collapsed democracies or Orwellian societies can be seen in:

Biotech Seed Companies and Coca-Cola Fight Back

14 Aug

Both the soft drink industry and the GMO seed producers are laying exposed their vulnerabilities in an attempt to convince the consumer of their product benefits.

Coca-Cola is going to begin advertising their diet colas using the scientific evidence that shows that Aspartame (NutraSweet) is safe while the biotech seed companies launched a website to tout the virtues of genetically modified organisms. In both cases, the move is in response to consumers becoming more informed about the effects of messing with Mother Nature.

The Coca-Cola article just happened to occur one day before Utah researchers came out with a conclusion that what is considered a “safe” level of sugar consumption in humans, when fed to mice, had a dramatic negative affect on their health. Coca-Cola was not preparing in advance of this release, more so, was responding to the decrease in sales of sodas. Likewise, the GMO producers were responding to negative public perception and their total failure to convince the Europeans to continue to use GMO products. The seed and chemical companies are desperate to maintain their position within the US Agriculture Community.

In each case, the industry is laying exposed their greatest vulnerabilities, which are directly tied to consumer awareness. At this point in time, they have no other choice. As for the consumer, the consumer always has an alternate choice. We will see how successful these industry campaigns are in garnering customer loyalty, or not. With what many call the failure of Microsoft’s RT products recently, it is clear it takes more than multi-million-dollar ad campaigns to sell products. The products more and more need to offer real value and stand up to the scrutiny of an ever increasingly informed public.

Genetically Modified Bees to Save the Bees

29 Jul

Worldwide there are concerns about the health of bee populations. The threat to the bees is tied to neonicotinoids among other things. Monsanto in 2012, purchased Beelogic and apparently plans to genetically modify bees in order to save them from the chemicals.

In a related development, the Agriculture Department of Illinois took the bee population from a renowned naturalist who had been developing bees that naturally were resistant to RoundUp/ Glyphosate. Of particular note is that the bees were taken without a warrant or a court hearing. It is suspect that Monsanto had made the request although the State of Illinois claims they were taken due to a routine inspection that uncovered bacteria in the colonies. Terrence Ingram, the naturalist, can be seen on this YouTube video.

Terrence had his day in court, but was convicted and fined $500. The only problem was that he was unable to defend himself, by proving the bees were not infected with foulbrood, as the bees had been confiscated and (apparently) destroyed.

On another note, in Europe, Monsanto has decided to give up their push into genetically modified seeds and limit the sales of seeds in Europe to those that are not GMO. The popularity of GMO seeds was not being met with enough business success, especially with the beekeepers in Poland.

Learning Online

20 Jul

The value of the internet cannot be overstated when it comes to providing an education for those that pursue it. If you are not concerned about an education, and prefer to simply own a degree, knowing that the “learning” part is not important, check out the Forbes article by John Tamny. He makes the case that learning is not important, only the degree and most importantly the “where” that degree comes from.

For those looking for an education online, there are the never ending availability of YouTube videos or the Google search results that provide the education. For others, there are the online lectures available from iTunes U or such Universities as Stanford and not to be left out, edX (recently the focus of The Colbert Report).

Now entering the online education arena with a new boost to their funding is Coursera. This clearly adds some credibility to an online education, as Coursera also provides a Signature Track program that verifies the student’s identity, achievements, and exams.
