The Hurricane Franklin recently formed north of Jamaica, the sixth Atlantic storm in three weeks. The previous, Arlene, Bret, Cindy, Dennis and Emily have all caused more or less enormous destruction in the Mexican Gulf, and at the east coast of Mexico and the United States. The National Hurricane Center in Miami uses most of the alphabet (twenty-one names) each year designating hurricanes (the hurricane season starts during the summer and ends in December). If this keeps up they’ll have to reboot with «A» for the first time in recorded history.
On Greenland the glacier Kangerdlugssuaq is shrinking by 14 kilometers a year, a completely unprecedented event. The entire Greenland icecap is melting. And that little shakeup alone will make the world’s oceans rise with eight meters. The melting in Antarctica will cause an even bigger rise. A moderate estimate says seventy meters. Another three hundred. If there are cartographers left in thirty years, they’ll have quite a job redrawing the world’s coastlines.
This summer there have been heatwaves, drought and floods of another world in the United States, Europe (Italy, Rumania), and Australia. In China, as is usually the case, it’s everything simultaneously. In India people are being killed off like flies during the worst Monsoon rain in memory. We’re growing used to stuff like this, now. It led to major news coverage fifteen years ago, but not anymore. It has gone too far, become too dangerous to report in an extensive and necessary manner.
The human created Global Warming started quite a while ago. Now it’s taking off in earnest. The deserts cover ever more of the globe. Sahara has already reached Southern Europe. The storms are increasing in number and strength. As early as in 1995 United Nations stated that the number of natural disasters like earthquakes, floods, hurricanes and such increased with six percent a year, warning that it was a progressively increasing every year, something later shown to be very true.
Life on Earth, also harmed through other human activities like extensive poisoning of all creatures and the environment, by general destruction of and screwing with nature, is brought further towards the breaking point.
Another result of a warmer Earth, of more Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, is that plants grow faster and bigger. This the industry has used in its propaganda to not have to implement dramatic and needed changes. Robert Balling, a man bought and paid for by the industry has, among others led on in this euphoric optimism. But it’s all (as usual) shown to be a mixed blessing. It’s true that the plants grow faster and bigger, and that there will be more of them, at least in what will remain of green areas. But the amount of nutrients in these plants will fall to such a level that humans and animals surviving on the plants quite simply eventually will starve to death, the so called «hidden hunger», an effect also created by modern food production. In short we’re eating ourselves to death. Not just because of all the poison contained in modern food, but also because it’s extremely low on nutrients compared to natural food, what hunters and gatherers digested in pre-civilized societies.
So, what’s done to halt this development, all this threatening all life on the globe? Nothing or as good as nothing.
Greenhouse gases are being poured into the atmosphere. The industry and its paid servants in politics keep anything resembling the necessary drastic measures from being implemented.
The Kyoto Accord isn’t even approaching sufficient. It doesn’t even decrease the increase, and wouldn’t have done so even if all nations had ratified it. Those believing it’s more than a fart, a piss in the ocean should reconsider as quickly as possible.
To really make a dent the amount of CO2 must return to pre-industrial level, as a necessary first step. And even if that, against all odds (dream on) should be implemented we will still, because of the inherent delay in the system have to wait hundred-and-fifty years before it starts to fall significantly.
The Earth has fever and we’re all sensing its cramps, whether we’re admitting it or not.
Real estate prices on the world’s mountains and mountain plains will surely skyrocket in the coming years.

The man shot dead by police at Stockwell Underground station yesterday morning had nothing to do with Thursday's abortive London bomb attacks, Scotland Yard said tonight.
According to witnesses, the man was shot five times at close range after being chased onto a Northern Line train at the South London station at around 10am. Sir Ian Blair, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, said later that the man was directly connected to the bungled bombings of three Tube trains and a London bus the day before.
The Met said in a statement this afternoon:
"We believe we now know the identity of the man shot at Stockwell Underground station by police on Friday 22nd July 2005, although he is still subject to formal identification. We are now satisfied that he was not connected with the incidents of Thursday 21st July 2005. For somebody to lose their life in such circumstances is a tragedy and one that the Metropolitan Police Service regrets".(...)
Amos Keppler's comments:
Jean Charles de Menezes is dead, executed by the British Secret Service.
Most people see this as a "tragic mistake", brought on by "unfortunate circumstances". I (and many others fortunately) see it as a direct result of a deliberate government policy, not just in England, but everywhere. Countless unarmed people have been killed by the police through the years. This is "merely" one more.
Added to this is the extra, deliberate paranoia brought on by the post 11/9 world, the world the masters very much desire and have worked so hard for.
"One down, three to go", The Sun wrote. I wonder what they will write now, if they will come up with anything even resembling a retraction, an apology, an attempt to find the Truth.
The important thing right now, as ever, is to say NO to the lies the government tells us.
They tell us that islamic terrorists are behind the bombings the last five years. They lie! The various governments or rather the forces behind the throne executed the bombings in an ongoing attempt to impose tyranny on a mostly clueless population.
This is one more lie, one more charade... among thousands, all incorporated into the BIG LIE that is the modern society.
And even now, with the result of the paranoia they've created seeing the light of day, unavoidable, they're allowed to continue their charade, allowed to keep building their modern tyranny.
We see now, once again, what secret services are created for, to terrorize a nation's own population.
That's their sole purpose.
The tyrants have been exposed... again, but they remain at large, remain free to keep their tyranny going, and nothing significantly is DONE to put a STOP to it!

Eyewitness Mark Whitby to BBC News 24: [I was sitting on the train... I heard a load of noise, people saying, "get out, get down". I saw an Asian guy. He ran on to the train, he was hotly pursued by three plain clothes officers, one of them was wielding a black handgun. He half tripped... they pushed him to the floor and basically uploaded five shots into him.]

"Dear Jose: I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won't be able to plant my garden this year. I'm just too old to be digging up a garden. If you were here, all my troubles would be over. I know you would dig the garden for me. Tu Padre"
A few days later, he received a letter from his son.
"Dear Papa: Por Dios, Papa, don't dig up the garden! That's where I buried all my drugs and money. Tu hijo, Jose."
At 6 a.m. the next morning, the L.A. Sheriffs showed up and dug up the entire area without finding any drugs or money. They apologized to the old man and left. That same day, the old man received another letter from his son.
"Dear Papa: Go ahead and plant your garden now, papa. It's the best I could do under the circumstances. Love, Jose."

The Path Too Well-Traveled
As the highest mountain on Earth, Mt. Everest represents the ultimate challenge for mountain climbers. But a different challenge faces the Inventa Everest 2000 Environmental Expedition, a team currently on the mountain. The participants have no interest in reaching the 29,035-foot summit. Instead, these climbers aim to clean Mt. Everest.
Mt. Everest is becoming known as the world's highest junkyard. Why is this mountaineering mecca in Nepal so polluted?
Thanks in part to Mt. Everest, tourism to Nepal (located between China and India) has exploded over the past few decades. Sir Edmund Hillary and his Sherpa climbing partner, Tenzing Norgay, were the first to conquer Mt. Everest in 1953. Now as many as 400 people each spring and fall attempt to climb Mt. Everest, or Sagarmatha, as the people of Nepal call it.
Not surprisingly, the increase of adventurers has led to an increase in litter, especially along the most popular route to the summit—the Southeast Ridge. The trail consists of a base camp at 17,600 feet and four additional camps closer to the summit. Since the first successful expedition, at least 50 tons of trash have accumulated.
At least 10 tons of garbage litters the 26,300-foot South Col, also called Camp IV. Most mountaineers make their final assault on the summit from here.

Police brutality at the G8-summit
in Gleneagles, Scotland
I think he should think more - a lot more - about whom he is aligning himself with.
What forces are you supporting, Bob, now, when you firmly and clearly are joining the side of the tyrants? What human decency are you speaking about? The policemen beating the shit out of brave protesters, the true protesters not obeying the tyrants’ orders like the other good dogs? The men and women bombing entire countries, until nothing but ruins are left? The forces destroying the world and all life on it?
Some people like what you’ve done with Live8. I certainly don’t. I think you’ve just turned into a scared old man not daring to take a true stand against tyranny. Humanity is committing slow suicide, and you’re sitting on your high horse and condemning the few that are actually taking a true stand against the masters of the world. You’re a true liberal, man, one sitting in your ivory tower, while the world is being destroyed around you.
And the eight men at Gleneagles and their lapdogs, even though they are only janitors, only representatives of the true masters of the world, the forces behind the throne, are men who have long since forgotten, like you have, Bob, what true decency is. They don’t mind when people smile, when they sing and dance and march peacefully miles from where they, the Eight sit. They love it when professed rebels play their game, and idiots like you call them decent, and claim you can appeal to their humanity.
I can’t decide whether or not you’re insane or just another lapdog. Probably a bit of both.

The eight tyrants gathered at Gleneagles, of course.
Teflon Tony had problems getting his Big Brother scheme through the Commons.
This will now be an easy task.
No one of the sycophants will dare oppose it.
Fear is the key. Keep the population in a grip of fear, and they are too scared to think and act, and do anything, except join the fold of eager servants.
Acting in anger towards those telling the truth.
It's becoming increasingly clear that the 9/11 attacks in New York and Washington DC was the work of the US government. Since then they, in tandem with Teflon Tony and other servants have acted repeatedly to implement their Orwellian sceme.
Which was/is the entire point.
It was all so very, very convenient for the people at the top, using the terrorist scare to stay in power.

I know, swearing is really just yet another christian thing, comprised of a number of words and expressions considered taboo and offensive by people with a narrow view on morality and life in general.
But it’s still fun to see those pious, sanctimonious idiots being offended.
I mean… is fucking offensive?
Is shit offensive?
You get my drift.
BBC got thousands of complains and like the cowards they are, BBC apologized.
Except for these funny bone incidents nothing much of interest happened.
The event itself wasn’t much of an event, except for being yet another failed attempt at solving and even addressing the world’s ills.
As should have been obvious from the start from those participating.
This is charity, no matter what the coordinators behind the projects claim, and charity has never solved anything. It has, on the contrary always made things worse. Misdirection and diversion tend to do that.
