The true hoax exposed

A few scientists and individuals paid by the industry have for years claimed that the human created Global Warming isn’t happening. Those scientists and individuals have long since been exposed. Neither variations in the sun’s output (less the last twenty years) nor cosmic radiation nor urban heat islands are contributing much to Global Warming. On the contrary, it is now clear, and has been for a while that there are those being paid and supported by the industry that have deliberately faked results in their own «research». Industry sells doubt, in all areas to be able to continue their insane venture.

This is merely one of many exposures and unambiguous results the last decade. I am, generally speaking critically inclined towards science, but when findings and theories to such an uncanny degree fit reality there can be very little doubt left. We have all observed, with our own eyes and senses what’s happening and what becomes increasingly clear: warmer and more violent weather patterns, more rain, more drought, longer growth seasons, longer summers, shorter or non-existing winters and so on.

I’ve stated all this for twenty years and it’s nice to be proven right, of course. It’s no longer controversial to say that the world is growing warmer, and that the warming is caused by human activity. But this should only be the beginning of people’s insight. Unfortunately that isn’t so. People still cling to the old illusions of civilization’s perfection. The few measures implemented so far, and even those planned, like recycling, higher fuel-prices, various cleaning technologies, more environmental-friendly fuels, more effective light bulbs and similar just won’t matter in the grand scheme things. Everything will be hopelessly insufficient. It won’t safe life on Earth, or even delay or reducing the increase, the speed of the ongoing destruction. Yet, people are talking about this with something approaching religious awe, while bluntly rejecting critical voices speaking about what is or should be self-evident: that the entire human society must change completely, that it must be turned upside/down, inside out, and that civilization itself is destroying all life, including ours.

The struggle to prevent dramatic Global Warming has become a fad, and thereby two important things are happening: One is that it is distracting from and hiding, concealing the other equally dangerous general chemical and radioactive pollution from factories, a selection of modern consumer products and from nuclear power plants. The second is that the last time environmental issues were popular, in 1989/90 it turned out to be quite a short-lived phenomenon. The measures implemented then were cosmetic, useless. Today we see the same happening. The Kyoto accord and additions, like the upcoming Copenhagen meeting in December and absolutely any countermeasure to Global Warming officials are talking about in public aren’t merely totally useless, but also the usual, deliberate distraction the establishment put in motion in order to keep anything substantial from being done.

Those in power, the elite at the top of the pyramid, their stooges in public government, the industry and the establishment in general don’t want true changes. They are quite pleased with the world like it is, and don’t want to change shit. Thus the current human society continues on its destructive path like a growing snowball rolling ever faster towards the inevitable end of its run, at the abrupt halt at the bottom of the slope.

The ravings of an insane idiot

Many pagans (like me) don't believe either in god or satan or any gods, or believe they exist at all. They believe in humanity and our place in nature, as an integral part of the Universe, not apart from it. We are of the Earth, its blood, its dirt and sweat. That is a fact. Not some lofty other-dimensional realm.

Good and evil, heaven and hell, the whole duality insanity thing is basically an invention of zarathustra, a persian prophet living thousands of years ago. His teaching spread to judaism and from there to christianity and islam, and also to some eastern religions.

So almost all the larger present day world religions and society as a whole are a result of an insane idiot wandering and raving in the Persian sands...

That irony is truly something, isn't it...

Britain’s unions commit to a mass boycott movement of Israeli goods

In a landmark decision, Britain’s trade unions have voted overwhelmingly to commit to build a mass boycott movement, disinvestment and sanctions on Israel for a negotiated settlement based on justice for Palestinians.

The motion was passed at the 2009 TUC Annual Congress in Liverpool today (17 September), by unions representing 6.5 million workers across the UK.

Hugh Lanning, chair of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, said: ‘This motion is the culmination of a wave of motions passed at union conferences this year, following outrage at Israel’s brutal war on Gaza, and reflects the massive growth in support for Palestinian rights. We will be working with the TUC to develop a mass campaign to boycott Israeli goods, especially agricultural products that have been produced in illegal Israeli settlements in the Palestinian West Bank.’

The motion additionally called for the TUC General Council to put pressure on the British government to end all arms trading with Israel and support moves to suspend the EU-Israel trade agreement. Unions are also encouraged to disinvest from companies which profit from Israel’s illegal 42-year occupation of Gaza and the West Bank.

The motion was tabled by the Fire Brigades Union. The biggest unions in the UK, including Unite, the public sector union, and UNISON, which represents health service workers, voted in favour of the motion.

The motion also condemned the Israeli trade union Histadrut’s statement supporting Israel’s war on Gaza, which killed 1,450 Palestinians in three weeks, and called for a review of the TUC’s relationship with Histadrut.

Britain’s trade unions join those of South Africa and Ireland in voting to use a mass boycott campaign as a tool to bring Israel into line with international law, and pressure it to comply with UN resolutions that encourage justice and equality for the Palestinian people.

The Cretaceous era revisited - a Global Warming timetable

The Cretaceous period on Earth was an extremely hot and volatile era with a lot of CO2 in the atmosphere, eventually buried and transformed into the fossil fuels we are using today. All the CO2 of the Cretaceous period is now being returned to the atmosphere.

Knowledge of what will happen, what will be the inevitable, ultimate results of the human created Global Warming has come to us in pieces. We still don’t know exactly what will happen, but we can make ever better informed educated guesses and predictions.

The first signs have already asserted themselves, bad enough, but nothing compared to what will follow. The first reports ten years ago dealt solely with the warming, a few, direct results of that, making some idiots state something like this: «so, it will get a little warmer, so what? I would love a little hotter climate and few more trees». Or similar. Our knowledge has long since drawn a far more drastic, volatile and lethal scenario.

Today we see the deserts spread. In southern Europe, in the United States and Australia, in China people have felt the horrors of expanded drought. In California, Australia and Greece forest and bushfires have become the norm, not the exception. Elsewhere, where there isn’t drought, there’s usually flooding. The storms and hurricanes have increased in frequency and strength. The oceans get warmer, and with that the changes of hurricanes occurring and turning more powerful have increased significantly. Temperatures have spiked, creating close to unbearable summers, with death and suffering as a result. The polar icecaps are melting, and much faster than anticipated. The arctic will be ice free in the summers by 2013, fifty years ahead of «schedule». The ice on Greenland has begun melting at an unprecedented rate. What was once just a theory, a butterfly flapping its wings somewhere in China has now become an absolute, undeniable certainty.

This is today, what I call the first phase.

The immediate tomorrow, the next ten, twenty and thirty years, a far more volatile scenario will quickly reveal itself. The bread baskets of the United States’ Midwest and in the Ukraine will literally turn to dust. So will the Amazon jungle and other tropic rainforests around the world. The land ice in Antarctica will begin melting in earnest. That, too, has already begun. The melting of the Greenland ice will cause the world’s ocean to rise about seven meters. The West Ice in Antarctica will make that seven more, and the West Ice has also protected the inland from the warmer winds, a protection it will soon no longer have. The ice and snow of the Himalayas will melt and initially cause floods. Then, when there is no more left it will cause starvation on a massive scale in India and China. When all the ice on Earth have melted the sea level will be approximately 70 meter higher than today. Long before that all the current coastland will be below the surface. 84 percent of the world’s humans live by the coast or close to the coastline. Hurricanes, drought and floods will assert themselves with ever greater strength and numbers, making the coastlines and vast parts of the inland practically uninhabitable, setting off the greatest human migrations in history.

Official reports still cling to a thousand year timetable on most of these scenarios, but that fallacy has long since lost all credibility. I see it as the governments and established society’s attempt at panic management. Lies and deceit have brought us where we are today, on our collective, suicidal path, and that path should of course be abandoned yesterday.

The ocean will grow increasingly warmer, and as it does the process of acidification will explode, killing at least 80 percent of all life in the sea, ruining its ecosystem completely, and certainly also ruining whatever is left of the ecosystem on land. Even officially sanctioned scientists speak of this process within a thirty-year period.

This is the immediate future, the second phase. It’s bad enough, and may cause billions of human deaths, but there is still a chance of us surviving as a species, beyond the inevitable destruction of civilization, of a way of organizing ourselves that has always, right from its modest beginnings destroyed everything making life worth living.

What will follow after the above described doomsday scenario is uncertain, is speculative, but one thing is certain: the new Cretaceous era has still not fully asserted itself. The Cretaceous era, as stated was volatile and lethal, and very different from today. It was hot, humid and its atmosphere and ocean were very close to what we would consider toxic.

Once, not too long into the future the final stages of the human created Global Warming will assert themselves. The acid seas will release clouds of Hydrogen Sulfide, a highly toxic gas, potentially killing the last few oxygen-breathers on the planet.

The development towards the first hot Cretaceous era took a very long time, thousands and even millions of years. We have done the same in little more than a hundred. That’s the only difference. Everything else is chillingly similar.
