"We think that the volume of water is about 300 tons a day," said Yushi Yoneyama, an official with the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry, which regulates Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO).
The rate at which contaminated water has been pouring into the Pacific Ocean from the disabled Fukushima nuclear plant is worse than thought before, an Industry Ministry official said as PM Shinzo Abe pledged to step up efforts to halt the crisis.
Abe put the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry in charge of the situation, while demanding that the plant's operator, TEPCO take the necessary steps to deal with the cleanup, which is anticipated to take more than 40 years at a cost of US$11 billion.
Reduce leakage amount to 60 tons per day early as December 2013?
On Wednesday TEPCO confirmed the leak but refused to confirm the quantity being emitted from the plant
"We are not currently able to say clearly how much groundwater is actually flowing into the ocean," Tokyo Electric Power spokesman Noriyuki Imaizumi told Reuters when asked for an estimate.
Japanese authorities are working in crisis mode, attempting to assure the public both at home and abroad that the situation will not further deteriorate into a widespread environmental catastrophe.
Yoneyama said the government plans to reduce the leakage amount to 60 tons per day by as early as December, but given the Japanese government’s progress in the cleanup to date that goal may be difficult to achieve. Removing 300 tonnes of groundwater, however, would not necessarily halt leakage into the sea, he said.

The nuclear plant was severely damaged in an earthquake and subsequent tsunami in March 2011.
About 90,000 people within a 20km radius of the plant were forced to evacuate their homes due to the possibility of a full-scale nuclear meltdown.
Earlier, TEPCO said it detected 2.35 billion becquerels of cesium per liter in water that is now leaking into the groundwater through cracks in the plant’s drainage system.
This radiation level is roughly the same as that measured in April 2011.
The normal level is 150 becquerels of cesium per liter of water.
You can't just leave it to TEPCO
For the past two years, TEPCO has claimed that it managed to siphon off the excess water into specially-constructed storage tanks.
However, the company was forced to admit late last month that radioactive water was still escaping into the Pacific Ocean.
These consistent failures are testing the patience of Japanese authorities.
Shinji Kinjo, head of the Nuclear Regulatory Authority (NRA) told Reuters.
“You can't just leave it — disposing of radioactive waste at the plant — up to TEPCO.
Right now, we have an emergency."
Earlier this month, TEPCO was forced to go on the defensive after a scathing first-page article appeared in The Asahi Shimbun daily criticizing the company’s cleanup efforts.
TEPCO did nothing for more than two years
The Asahi Shimbun daily newspaper stated on August 1, 2013:
“TEPCO did nothing for more than two years despite having pledged to seal a leaking hole between a turbine building — the leakage source — and an underground pit — a trench — in April 2011.
April 2011 was when water contaminated with radioactive materials…was found to have leaked into the ocean.
The company only began preparing for shielding tests this summer after contaminated water was found to be leaking into the sea this time.”

TEPCO fired back with its own version of events, saying that despite “technical difficulties and a severe work environment” the company has been working to implement a plan “in order to further reduce the risk of having outflow of contaminated water beyond the trench.”
Although TEPCO engineers have constructed a barrier between the destroyed facility and the ocean, it only extends 1.8 meters below the ground, thus water continues to accumulate inside the plant vaults.
Masashi Goto, a nuclear engineer who has worked at several TEPCO plants, told Reuters:
"If you build a wall, of course the water is going to accumulate there.
And there is no other way for the water to go but up or sideways and eventually lead to the ocean.
So now, the question is how long do we have?"
TEPCO has pledged to begin pumping enough radioactive seepage to stop the water level from rising.
But the company faces limitations, as its storage tanks are 85 percent full.
“New measures are needed to stop the water from flowing into the sea," emphasized Shinji Kinjo, head of the Nuclear Regulatory Authority (NRA), who accused TEPCO of failing to implement long-term solutions for a crisis that has been continuing for more than two years.
Not only is TEPCO running up against technical problems associated with the cleanup efforts, it must also deal with the unpredictable force of nature, specifically in the form of earthquakes.
On Sunday, a 6.0 magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Miyagi prefecture, the same northeastern region of the island country that was devastated by the 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami, which resulted in 15,000 people killed and more than 3,200 missing.
No damage or injuries were reported in the latest earthquake, but some roads and railways were temporarily closed for safety inspections.

Corexit, Oil Dispersant Used By BP, Is Destroying Gulf Marine Life, Scientists Say
In April 2012, Louisiana State University’s Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences was finding lesions and grotesque deformities in sea life—including millions of shrimp with no eyes and crabs without eyes or claws—possibly linked to oil and dispersants.
EcoRigs divers took water and marine life samples at several locations in the months following the blowout.
Now, they and countless other Gulf residents are sick, with symptoms resembling something from a sci-fi horror film, including bleeding from the nose, ears, breasts, and even anus.
Others complain of cognitive damage, including what one man calls getting “stuck stupid,” when he temporarily cannot move or speak, but can still hear
EcoRigs founder Steve Kolian'a] team has done studies of their own to alarming results.
“We recently submitted a paper showing levels of hydrocarbons in seafood were up to 3,000 times higher than safety thresholds for human consumption.”

Oil and gas still seeping unabated
The Gulf of Mexico disaster has not gone away.
In fact, it has grown exponentially since the main stream media stopped talking about it.
According to the Gulf Rescue Alliance, an organization composed of scientists, medical professionals and seafood industry professionals, among others, the problem cannot be simplified to the damage already caused by the oil spill.
It is worse, much worse.
Not only is oil spill still happening but the Gulf of Mexico’s sea floor has grown more unstable since the explosion in 2010

Brazil: Amazon rainforest deforestation rises sharply

Satellite images show deforestation increased from 103 sq km in March and April 2010 to 593 sq km (229 sq miles) in the same period of 2011, Brazil's space research institute says.

Brazil: Amazon rainforest deforestation rises sharply
Deforestation of the Brazilian Amazon rainforest has increased almost sixfold, new data suggests.
Satellite images show deforestation increased from 103 sq km in March and April 2010 to 593 sq km (229 sq miles) in the same period of 2011, Brazil's space research institute says.
Much of the destruction has been in Mato Grosso state, the centre of soya farming in Brazil.
The news comes shortly before a vote on new forest protection rules.
Brazilian Environment Minister Izabella Teixeira said the figures were 'alarming' and announced the setting up of a 'crisis cabinet' in response to the news.
"Our objective is to reduce deforestation by July," the minister told a news conference.
Analysts say the new figures have taken the government by surprise.
Last December, a government report said deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon had fallen to its lowest rate for 22 years.
However, the latest data shows a 27% jump in deforestation from August 2010 to April 2011.
Man made fires to clear the land for cattle or crops in Sao Felix Do Xingu Municipality, Para, Brazil - 2008

Official satellite images shed a new light on the pace of deforestation
The biggest rise was in Mato Grosso, which produces more than a quarter of Brazil's soybean harvest.
Some environmentalists argue that rising demand for soy and cattle is prompting farmers to clear more of their land.
But others see a direct link between the jump in deforestation and months of debate over easing an existing law on forest protection.
"You have 300-400 lawmakers here in Brasilia sending the message that profiting from deforestation will be amnestied, that crime pays," Marcio Astrini from Greenpeace told Reuters.
"The only relevant factor is the Forest Code. It is a gigantic rise."
The Chamber of Deputies has delayed voting on the Forest Code amid at times acrimonious argument but could consider the issue again next week.
The Forest Code, enacted in 1934 and subsequently amended in 1965, sets out how much of his land a farmer can deforest.
Regulations currently require that 80% of a landholding in the Amazon remain forest, 20% in other areas.
Proponents of change say the law impedes economic development and contend that Brazil must open more land for agriculture.
However, opponents fear that in their current form some of the proposed changes might give farmers a form of amnesty for deforested land.
The changes were put forward by Aldo Rebelo, leader of Brazil's Communist Party (PCdoB) and backed by a group in Congress known as the 'ruralists' who want Brazil to develop its agribusiness sector.

Extreme drought in Amazon rainforest linked to deforestation and climate change
The trouble has been that while traditional aerial images can show areas that have been completely destroyed, they do not reveal selective logging of valuable trees such as mahogany.
Brazilian officials praised the scientists for highlighting the issue of selective logging, but said the new figures were hard to believe.

Arctic ozone layer at lowest recorded levels March 2011
extending into April 2011
March 31st 2011 Arctic ozone depletion in the stratosphere had been destroyed by 40 percent.
The previous record of Arctic ozone depletion in winter was 30 percent.
Reduction of ozone in both the Arctic and Austral winters is a natural event due to the cooling of the stratosphere and other factors such as long-wave emissions.
Heat emmisions rising from Earth if prevented from reaching the stratosphere due to gasses in the troposhere cause the band of ozone within the stratosphere to cool more severly.
This cooling destroys more ozone and prevents ozone from rebuilding.
 O2+ UV=
O

+ O2= O3   
In recent years ozone destroying chemicals from Earth reaching the ozone layer in the stratosphere has also played a role.
These varied factors are detailed below.
Cold Arctic winters has on average about 25% ozone depletion.
Cold Antarctic winters has seen 55% ozone depleted in recent years, the largest depletion recorded in September 2006 where 40 million tonnes of ozone were lost.
Previous to that loss record was the year 2000 where 39 million tonnes of ozone were lost.
Loss of ozone allows more ultraviolet-B rays from the Sun into the troposphere.
Ultraviolet-B rays have been linked to increased rates of skin cancer in humans and other mammals, increased cataracts and damage to the immune system.
The thinning of ozone in the Southern Hemisphere has affected such countries as Australia, New Zealand, the islands near the Antarctic and the countries at the southern portion of South America.
This extent of loss of ozone in the 2011 Arctic winter and early spring means more caution is needed by people in countries bordering the Arctic and even in such countries as the UK.
Caution such as wearing sunglasses that prevent Ultraviolet-B rays from reaching the eyes.

The granaries were full and the children of the poor grew up rachitic, and the pustules of pellagra swelled on their sides.
The great companies did not know that the line between hunger and anger is a thin line.
And money that might have gone to wages went for... guns, for agents and spies, for blacklists....
And the migrants streamed in on the highways and their hunger was in their eyes, and the need was in their eyes.
They had no argument, no system, nothing but their numbers and their needs.
When there was work for a man, ten men fought for it — fought for a low wage.
If that fella'll work for thirty cents, I'll work for twenty-five.
If he'll take twenty-five, I'll do it for twenty.
No, me, I'm hungry.   I'll work for fifteen.   I'll work for food.
The kids.   You ought to see them.   Little boils, like comin' out, an' they can't run aroun'.   Give 'em some windfall fruit, an' they bloated up.   Me.   I'll work for a little piece of meat.
And this was good, for wages went down and prices stayed up.
The great owners were glad and they sent out more handbills to bring more people in.
And wages went down and prices stayed up.
And pretty soon now we'll have serfs again.
And now the great owners and the companies invented a new method.
A great owner bought a cannery.
And when the peaches and the pears were ripe he cut the price of fruit below the cost of raising it.
And as cannery owner he paid himself a low price for the fruit and kept the price of canned goods up and took his profit.
And the little farmers who owned no canneries lost their farms, and they were taken by the great owners, the banks, and the companies who also owned the canneries.
As time went on, there were fewer farms.
The little farmers moved into town for a while and exhausted their credit, exhausted their friends, their relatives.
And then they too went on the highways.
And the roads were crowded with men ravenous for work, murderous to work.

Pakistan flood survivors refused aid at relief camps!

Illuminati horror!

Documents required before admittance!

Homeless families, their possessions piled at their side, are unable to get into the camps.

A screening process has been established to decide which families are eligible to receive aid!

'For god's sake, help us,' people cry!

But it seems that because these flood victims do not have identity cards they are not eligible to register at the camp and so gain entry and aid!

Cold-hearted moves to protect the American Empire as it functions in Pakistan will instead endanger US servicemen and servicewomen in both Afghanistan and Pakistan as they intensify the anti-American hatred.

It remains to be seen whether moves such as this are explained as the clumsy stumbling of Leviathan, or intentional decisions intended to provoke rioting.

When the idea is to create mass-chaos, it doesn't matter who the people are angry at, as long as they are in stampede mode, letting mob-mentality rule.

700000 hectares of standing crops in Pakistan are under water or destroyed.

Only a fraction of the six million people most in need of help in flooded areas of Pakistan are able to get to places where they can receive aid.

Tens of thousands of villages in Pakistan are under water.

Floodwater is surgning southwards down the Indus River forcing mass evacuations from the rich farmlands of Sindh province.

The Crops Protection Association put the loss of the cotton crop alone at $1.8bn, while agriculture officials said 17 million acres of farmland was under water!

Standing crops and food worth billions of dollars and Euros have been washed away!

Bridges, roads, communication and energy networks have all been destroyed!

Pakistan flood victims die
— US airbase protected
Issue: 2215 dated: 21 August 2010
One statement by a Pakistani cabinet minister yesterday about the floods has revealed the way ordinary people’s lives are being sacrificed for profit and US imperialism.

Giving evidence before one of the country's senate standing committees, health secretary Khushnood Lashari stunned the members of the committee by stating that the airbase at Jacobabad in Sindh province is controlled by US forces and therefore is not available for desperately needed relief work.

"Health relief operations are not possible in the flood-affected areas of Jacobabad because the airbase is with the United States," he said.
Earlier, Doctor Jahanzeb Aurakzai, coordinator of the Health Emergency Preparedness and Response Centre, said:
"Foreign health teams could not start relief operations in remote areas because there are no airstrips close to several areas, including Jacobabad."
Jacobabad’s people have been hit by devastating floods.
Around 700,000 have been affected.

Airbase could have been used to save lives
The Shahbaz airbase in Jacobabad was leased to the US by former Pakistani president General Pervez Musharraf.
It is used for raids on Afghanistan and to launch drone attacks that have killed hundreds of Pakistanis.
When the floods first struck the authorities deliberately diverted water away form the base, making thousands of people homeless.
The Pakistan army diverted the torrent away from the base to towns in Balochistan including Osata Muhammad, Dera Allahyar, Jaffarabad and Gandawa.
However, continuing rains and divisions in the ruling class mean that water was then allowed to flood Jacobabad (and even to threaten the Shahbaz air base) in order to save the Guddu barrage which is used to irrigate 2.9 million acres of important agricultural areas.
Meanwhile in many areas of Pakistan local landlords have also breached canals and diverted floodwater to populated areas to save their crops.
The system of dams and irrigation that has been greatly to the benefit of the big landlords—but not the small farmer—has now concentrated huge power in the hands of the state and the military.

EFFECTING OF THE JET STREAM BY THE US
The US Government has been creating a ridge of high pressure over the Gulf Oil Spill to create calm winds!
This allows both clean up activities to take place, but
more importantly for BP and Obama this forced high pressure has prevented a major cyclonic effect of oil and toxic chemicals raining down on the US south.
This deep, deep drilling for money — a catastrophe for the oceans that never should have been allowed — allowed by Obama and his administration to appease the money powers of the world and their Illuminati God, has been stalled.
This toxic chemical cloud stalled — the hope of these elite who continue to listen to the whispering off-world rogue Satanist beings that enough of the toxicity will disperse in the mighty Earth oceans.
But the off-planet rogue Satanists know better!
They know the complications to be entailed and now bask in the misery of all that is being caused.
Surface temperature anomaly maps produced by NOAA show a correlation with the jet stream track since May,
and the start of the record heat in Russia.
This jet stream manipulation starts over the Gulf of Mexico where the US has built high pressure since May.
ANOTHER some would say OF MORE IMPORTANCE IS THIS EFFECTING OF THE JET STREAM BY THE US ON THE MONSOON SEASON OVER PAKISTAN
This is a new 9/11 that has gone completely out-of-control!

The true devastation of the floods will be seen when the waters start to recede. Dr Ijaz Habib, a Merlin doctor in Pakistan, told us:
"In Swat, the damage has been mostly along the riverside with houses completely washed away.
The mud houses were gone in the first day.
Roads and bridges have totally gone.
It will take decades to restore the infrastructure."
The photos below from the Merlin team in Landakai shows the severe damage to infrastructure roads and bridges, electricity and railway tracks
Many communities have become isolated and difficult to access as a result of the flooding.
 
Merlin is one of the most operational agencies on the ground and is delivering vital aid to people in Swat, Buner and Nowshera districts.
Jafar Shah, a Government minister in Swat emailed us to say:
"Your organization is the very first one to have reached the area… I have seen your teams walking kilometers of distance on foot to reach to the needy people."

2010 on track to be hottest year
Khimkinsky reservoir water area
Moscow
July 14 2010
The world is experiencing the hottest year on record, the US based National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has reported, with large parts of Canada, Africa, Europe and the Middle East facing abnormally warm temperatures.
The figures released by the NOAA suggest that 2010 is on course to be the warmest year since records began in 1880.
The first six months of 2010 have been hotter than the first half of 1998, the previous record holder.
June 2010 was the 304th consecutive month with a combined land and surface temperature above the 20th century average, the NOAA reported.
"We had an El Nino episode in the early part of the year that's now faded, but that has contributed to the warmth not only in equatorial Pacific but also contributed to anomalously warm global temperatures as well," Jay Lawrimore, the chief of climate analysis at NOAA, said.
25 million acres of crops destroyed
There are fears that a prolonged global heatwave will cause severe droughts and harm crop yields.
In Russia, a state of emergency has been declared in 19 regions as temperatures in the capital, Moscow reached a record 37 degrees.
Russia's grain lobby said the country is facing the worst drought in 130 years.
Almost 25 million acres of crops in central and European areas of Russia have already been destroyed by drought, according to authorities.
Pleiades
cluster
The heatwave in Russia is part of a larger system across much of Europe that is causing crops to wither, forest fires to ignite and road surfaces to melt.
From Russia's Urals mountains to western Germany, a week of temperatures in the mid-30s has baked northern parts of Europe, which are usually spared the heat of warmer Mediterranean regions — and forecasters are warning of more to come over the next week.
This year has been the driest in Britain since 1929 and the use of hosepipes has been banned in the northwest of England.
Authorities in Berlin have reportedly issued a ban on long swimming trunks, claiming they soak up too much water, as throngs of Germans headed to outdoor swimming pools to escape 38 degree temperatures.
Elsewhere, northern Thailand is struggling with the worst drought in 20 years, while Israel is in the midst of its longest and most severe drought since the 1920s.
Transition into La Nina may provide cooling second half of year
In the US, farmers in the Midwest agricultural belt worry that hot temperatures and dry weather could hurt corn and soybean crops.
"It's going to be pretty warm across eastern Nebraska, Iowa, western portions of Missouri, mid to upper 90s [Farenheit]," Donald Keeney, the senior agriculture meteorologist with Cropcast Ag Services, said.
In June, sea ice in the Arctic melted to its thinnest-ever state. The Jakobshaven Isbrae glacier, one of the largest in Greenland, recently lost a three sq km chunk in one of the largest single losses of glacier ice ever recorded.
But Lawrimore said that it remained to be seen if 2010 would overtake 2005 as the warmest complete year on record:
"This year the fact that the El Nino episode has ended and is likely to transition into La Nina, which has a cooling influence on the global average temperature, it's possible that we will not end up with the warmest year as a whole."

Large increase in leakage of methane gas from the Arctic seabed
Methane is about 20 times more potent than CO2 in trapping solar heat.
Acting as a giant frozen depository of carbon such as CO2 and methane (often stored as compacted solid gas hydrates), Siberia's shallow shelf areas are increasingly subjected to warming and are now giving up greater amounts of methane to the sea and to the atmosphere than recorded in the past.

ABIOTIC HYPOTHESIS — Gas Oil
Let the real experts tell us the real story about where oil and gas really come from.
Within the mantle, carbon may exist as hydrocarbon molecules, chiefly methane, and as elemental carbon, carbon dioxide and carbonates.
The abiotic hypothesis is that a full suite of hydrocarbons found in petroleum can be generated in the mantle by abiogenic processes.
And these hydrocarbons can migrate out of the mantle into the crust until they escape to the surface.
Or are trapped by impermeable strata, forming petroleum reservoirs.
Oil as a wave is seen in the water as it washes ashore in Orange Beach, Alabama from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico on June 26, 2010.

Criminal Obama and BP, Gulf oil disaster, 

Corexit and surfactants.

Many of the region's important organisms, such as blue fin tuna and shrimp, use the wetlands at some point in their lifetime.

Adult tuna breed during the late spring and early summer.

Their eggs then float to shore and the larvae grow in the wetlands, protected from predators.

Any decent chemist will tell you that surfactants, which are the primary ingredient in Corexit destroy cell membranes — including larval membranes of larval tuna eggs, shrimp and any other marine life trying to develop.

Gulf — Fear-based model to be taken seriously — Corexit 9500
Oil toxic at 11 ppm — Corexit 9500 at 2.61ppm
Corexit 9500 is one of the most toxic dispersal agents ever developed.
Even worse, with higher water temperatures like those now occurring in the Gulf of Mexico, its toxicity grows.
Russian scientists are warning that the BP destruction in the Gulf of Mexico is about to threaten the entire eastern half of the North American continent.
Corexit 9500 when combined with heating Gulf waters will be able to “phase transition” from liquid to a gaseous state allowing molecules to be absorbed into clouds and be released as “toxic rain” upon all of Eastern North America.
Deepwater rig oil being burnt into atmosphere
Blowout preventers that were supposed to be last-ditch mechanism against an explosion on the Deepwater rig, had 260 ways they could fail!
BP has so far put almost a million gallons of toxic dispersant into the Gulf!
The dispersant it has been using, Corexit, has been shown to be less effective and more toxic than alternatives!
But Corexit is cheaper and manufactured by Nalco, which has an ex-BP member on its board!
Making of a catastrophe:
BP — Deepwater rig — Obama
As US Democratic Representative Jerry Nadler asked during congressional hearings:
"Why would you use something that is much more toxic and much less effective, [Corexit] other than you have a corporate relationship with the manufacturer?"
Nearly three-quarters of all U.S. waterfowl and all of its 110 species of migratory neo-tropical songbirds use Louisiana's three million acres of wetlands to rest or nest.
25 million songbirds cross the Gulf!
Oysters have just started to reproduce!
Speckled brown trout have started spawning!
Shrimp have just begun to grow!
When did BP and other operators know that there were problems with the blowout preventers?
Ten years ago.
In 2000, the US Interior Department's MMS published a report warning that there were several difficulties connected to deepwater well control, and that a blowout could be disastrous.
Obama left in place many of the top officials who oversaw the agency's culture of corruption.
He permitted the agency that was supposed to protect the public to rubber-stamp dangerous drilling operations by BP with virtually no environmental safeguards.
BP — a firm with the worst safety record of any oil company!
Corexit and surfactants
Many of the region's important organisms, such as blue fin tuna and shrimp, use the wetlands at some point in their lifetime.
Adult tuna breed during the late spring and early summer.
Their eggs then float to shore and the larvae grow in the wetlands, protected from predators.
Any decent chemist will tell you that surfactants, which are the primary ingredient in Corexit destroy cell membranes — including larval membranes of larval tuna eggs, shrimp and any other marine life trying to develop.
So the gulf world-devastating event
is due to the Illuminati planning to invade Iran!
According to the Wayne Madsen Report (WMR) sources within the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Pentagon and Interior and Energy Departments told the Obama administration the newly-discovered oil was estimated at 3-4 billion barrels.
The Obama administration was told if a military attack [US/Israel] took place on Iran — resulting in the bottling up of the Strait of Hormuz to oil tanker traffic and a cut-off of oil to the United States from the Persian Gulf — this new oil in the Gulf of Mexico would cover America's oil needs for up to eight months.
Utter lawlessness and criminality —
Obama, the US house, the US Senate, the US Supreme Court, and all their minions!
Long has the US, as most other nations, been ruled by those who practise utter lawlessness!
Only now are some of the people within these nations grasping such consequential reality!

Tar balls from oil eruption
Chuck Baldwin on Alex Jones Show
Alex Jones:  Coming to you from deep inside enemy lines from occupied USA — we want America back.   We're the good guys.   The Globalists are the bad guys.   Choose sides!
Chuck Baldwin we're got a headline up on PrisonPlanet.com 'Obama wants the oil spill crises to get worse.'
He's been under massive pressure to let the oil skimmers in.   Now he says he might in the next month.   Because the hurricanes are already there to blow in more oil.  Give us your brief take on that, given the whole history of it.   I was talking to your during the break.   Do you think there's sabotage?
Chuck Baldwin:  I think Obama and the administration knew about the problems that the BP oilwell had as early as January and February of this year. [2010]   I think they deliberately did nothing in order to exacerbate the problem.
I personally believe — let's put it this way — I suspect sabotage.   I suspect that Halliburton and the Bush, Clinton crime cabal is behind a lot of this.   BP is going to go bankrupt over this.   It's not an accident that it's a BP oilwell that was targeted because there is a major rift going on right now between the higher level officials in Great Britain and the Bush Clinton crime syndicate.
Alex Jones:  Yes, for those who don't know it's on record with CIA officer Terry Reed and others that Bush and Clinton actually work together.   That's all a staged event.   Shifting gears, what else in your view is the oil spill distracting from....
Illuminati tool and fool
Chuck Baldwin:  Well obviously they want to use it to pass the cap-and-trade energy monstrosity.   But I think what it's overlooking is, Alex, there's probably six trillion dollars — and I know we throw these numbers around and nobody can calculate that high — we're talking 6 trillion dollars that's hanging around out there that the British bankers believe has been stolen from them.   Whenever this well went up and all the pressure now that's placed upon BP, and probably going to go bankrupt, what that is going to do throughout Britain and Europe, I believe this was a signal by the people that stole that money to say 'Leave us alone.'
There are things here going on that I believe are so criminal.   That are so evil.   That are so sinister, that the American people know nothing about and the American media especially is not going to tell us that we need to know.   But there are things going on behind the scene here that this oil well is a diversion, or perhaps we can say a warning....
Alex Jones:  Well, take the Federal Reserve reorganization, that even the Washington Post admits gives them unlimited power over all financial institutions and things that effect the economy.   In Andrew Napolitano's words, 'This is a total seizure of the economy.'   So the Federal Reserve engineers the banking collapse, now they get even more power.   It's all happening right now.   Bird dying sabotaged that at least for the next few weeks — actually a gift from God.   I'm not glad he's dead but that screwed up the passage of it.   So it's all happening at once.
Chuck Baldwin:  It is!   And it is all happening, I think, in a coordinated effort.   I do not believe that these things are isolated incidences.   I just don't believe that.   These things are too big and too coincidental and the ramifications are too monstrous to suggest that this in not something but a design behind it.   I think that is exactly what's going on.   I think it is all related to the things I have been talking about today, to the things you're talking about.   Obviously they are not going to let a crisis go without using it.

BP Oil Spill — 2 sources with insider knowledge
BP oil spill was a planned Op... Both sources agree on this.
Source 1:   An off-shore marine shipping consultant
They were told for the past 5 years that the site they are drilling was "unstable" geologically.
My source is a off-shore marine shipping consultant very solid with close connections to BP and other interested parties.
Bp was warned they were tapping into volcanic area.
They have reports going back 4 or 5 years that there was a massive pocket of methane.
It is going to blow.
They had a rig manager who was very inexperienced... The seals can't contain the rush/gas & oil methane.   This is what caused the explosion.
Block preventer — has got methane building and it will blow... All the employees and people involved forced to sign nondisclosure agreements.
You have an oil field the size of Scotland.   When a hurricane comes through it will spread the toxic cocktail over Texas and surrounding areas and what could happen has never happened before — it will rain oil and chemicals.
He went on to say that the amount of oil leaking has not been reported
...it's at least 150,000 pds.
The sea bed floor is cracking and it is going collapse... the well casing is going to collapse.
All the workers out there know this.
The gases you breath in are going to impact any first responders... and people out there.
There are other rigs in the Mississippi Canyon... That is what this area is called.
BP's crews don't have the money behind them to contain the spill.
How much oil is actually leaking out of the casing.. how much pressure... The question to ask is what is the pounds per square inch...
I estimate 30-50,000 — that is based on what I have been told.
KEY: the nuke idea would be a disaster according to this witness.
"... With the leaks seeping out — if that was happening in the North sea they would evacuate the area.
When it rains hydrogen sulfate, benzene, methane and corexit... it's a lethal cocktail — a toxic cocktail.
Direct quote:
This thing is going to bring down economies...
Then he said, that the seabed is collapsing — they are fighting a force of nature.
"BP has their best people on it but they haven't got a clue."
Note: this info is from an very knowledgeable source with details withheld to protect his identity.
The info on BP is coming from employees with a need to know access.
This is not the whole story but the informants are close to the ground at the site.
Second whistleblower says the following:
According to insider contacts they planned this.
US Coastguard blocking news and people trying to get information out
What they want is for there to be a public outcry begging for a nuke.
This will backfire and cause devastation undreamed of...
The negative ETs are using the public sentiment against the people.
This would bring on Armageddon.   This is their intention.
Do not be deceived by Lindsay Williams and others who are saying a nuke is the way to seal the leaks.
(end of 2nd whistleblower testimony)
From another whistleblower:
If a nuke goes off it will cause rivers of fire to ignite the hidden methane and gas leaks currently coming out of the ground in Texas and north.
A river of fire will lead to a chain- reaction that will ignite the Yellowstone Super Volcano to erupt which will in turn ignite the chain of volcanoes down the West Coast ring of fire going down into South America.

Corexit 9500 is one of the most toxic dispersal agents ever developed.

Corexit 9500 can cause central nervous system depression, nausea, and unconsciousness, liver, kidney damage, and red blood cell hemolysis with repeated or prolonged exposure through inhalation or ingestion 

Even worse, with higher water temperatures like those now occurring in the Gulf of Mexico, its toxicity grows.

Russian scientists are warning that the BP destruction in the Gulf of Mexico is about to threaten the entire eastern half of the North American continent.

Corexit 9500 when combined with heating Gulf waters will be able to “phase transition” from liquid to a gaseous state allowing molecules to be absorbed into clouds and be released as “toxic rain” upon all of Eastern North America.

21st CENTURY CLIMATE BLUEPRINTS: PERSPECTIVES FROM THE RECENT HISTORY OF THE ATMOSPHERE
by ANDREW GLIKSON Earth and Paleoclimate scientist
June 24th, 2009
The Earth surface temperature reflects the net balance between incoming solar (shortwave) radiation and outgoing terrestrial (long wave) radiation (Kiehl and Trenberth, 1997 [1]).
The severe disturbance of the energy balance of the atmosphere ensuing from the emission of over 320 billion tons of carbon since 1750 threatens a shift in the state of the atmosphere/ocean system to ice free greenhouse Earth conditions.
Based on the recent Copenhagen Synthesis Report [2], climate change trends at the top range of IPCC 2007 projections [2], and the identification of tipping points in the recent history of the atmosphere/ocean system (i.e. at 14 - 11 and 8.2 thousand years-ago [3]), the scale and pace of 21st Century climate changes [4] require re-consideration of mitigation and adaptation strategies.
1.   The combined CO2 and methane level in the atmosphere is fast tracking toward a level of 500 ppm, which defines the approximate onset of the East Antarctic ice sheet [5], the upper climate range which allowed the development of habitats where large mammals flourished from about 40 and in particular 34 million years ago and of hominoids from about 7 million years ago [6].
Feedbacks from the carbon cycle, including release of methane from permafrost, polar sediments and bogs, and feedbacks from ice melt/warm water interaction dynamics, accelerate this process.
In view of the cumulative nature of CO2 in the atmosphere, at current growth rates of about 2 ppm per-year, rising above the combined CO2 + methane level of 450 ppm [7], the atmosphere/ocean system is fast tracking toward conditions similar to those of an ice-free Earth.
2.   The scale of such greenhouse event may, or may not, bear an analogy to the PETM (Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum) event about 55 million years ago [8], including release of large volumes of methane.   Recent methane release from Siberian permafrost, lakes and shallow sediments [9] are relevant to such scenario.
3.   Due to hysteresis (retardation of effect after cause), the effects of temperature rise, superposed ENSO (El Nino Southern Oscillation) cycles (Figure 2), melting of Greenland and the west Antarctic ice sheets [10], sea level rise [11], possible collapse of the North Atlantic Thermohaline Circulation [12], and potential tipping points (Figure 3), lag behind CO2 rise by as yet little-specified periods.
A shift of the climate system through a transitional stage is occurring at present and is associated with extreme weather events [13].
4.   With a mean global temperature rise of about 0.8 degrees C since 1750, plus a rise of about 0.5 degrees C masked by sulfur aerosols emitted by industry [14], plus temperature rise due to ice albedo loss and infrared absorption by water [10], in particular the Arctic Sea, global warming is potentially near 1.5 degrees C.
At this rate, conditions which existed on Earth about 2.8 million years ago (mid-Pliocene +2 to 3 degrees C; Sea level rise of 25+/-12 meters) [6] could be reached within time frames of a few decades.
5.   The unique nature of the "experiment" Homo sapiens is conducting with the atmosphere through the emission of 319 billion tons of carbon by 2007 [15] and the consequent extreme rise in atmospheric CO2 of about 2 ppm/year, two orders of magnitude faster than during the last glacial termination [16], counsels caution.
John Holdren, Obama's science advisor, compared global warming to “being in a car with bad brakes driving toward a cliff in the fog.”
Should humanity choose to undertake all possible mitigation and adaptation efforts in an attempt at slowing global warming down, or even reversing it, steps need to include:
A.   Urgent deep reductions in carbon emissions, on the scale of at least 5 percent of emissions per year, relative to 1990 (Anderson and Bows, 2008 [7]).
B.   Global reforestation efforts in semi-arid and drought-effected regions, among other providing employment to millions of people.
C.   Construction of long-range water conduits from flood-stricken to drought-stricken regions (an even more important task than designing Broadband networks…).
D.   Urgent development of atmospheric CO2 draw-down methods, including CO2-sequestering vegetation, soil carbon enrichment, sodium-based CO2 capture (a technology no more complex than space projects technologies and financially not more expensive than military expenditure).
E.   Rapid transition to clean energy (solar-thermal, hot-rock, hydrogen, wind, tide, photovoltaic) and transport systems (electric vehicles).
It is possible that, in order to gain time, some governments may opt for geo-engineering efforts, including stratospheric injection of sulfur aerosols (simulating volcanic eruptions) [17], likely over polar regions, meant to temporarily raise the Earth albedo while other measures are undertaken.
The alternative to urgent fast tracked mitigation efforts does not bear contemplation.

I don’t know of an issue of a greater magnitude than the energy issue that humanity’s facing right now.
Oh my God, we’re having wars in, you know, Asia, killing millions of people over the hydrocarbons.
The issue is so multi-faceted, it’s so immense, that... Oh yes, this is being very carefully managed.
'Researchers have found that when humans simply think about the possibility of extra senses, new dendrites grow between their brain cells.
In other words, the simple awareness of extra senses, or dimensions, may allow us to grow brain connections to actually accommodate such an awareness.'

Major ice-shelf loss for Canada
The ice shelves in Canada's High Arctic have lost a colossal area this year, scientists report.
The floating tongues of ice attached to Ellesmere Island, which have lasted for thousands of years, have seen almost a quarter of their cover break away.
One of them, the 50 sq km (20 sq miles) Markham shelf, has completely broken off to become floating sea-ice.
Researchers say warm air temperatures and reduced sea-ice conditions in the region have assisted the break-up.
"These substantial calving events underscore the rapidity of changes taking place in the Arctic," said Trent University's Dr Derek Mueller.
"These changes are irreversible under the present climate."

Scientists reported in July that substantial slabs of ice had calved from Ward Hunt Ice Shelf, the largest of the Ellesmere shelves.
Similar changes have been seen in the other four shelves.
As well as the complete breakaway of the Markham, the Serson shelf lost two sections totalling an estimated 122 sq km (47 sq miles), and the break-up of the Ward Hunt has continued.
Cold remnants
The shelves themselves are merely remnants of a much larger feature that was once bounded to Ellesmere Island and covered almost 10,000 sq km (3,500 sq miles).
Over the past 100 years, this expanse of ice has retreated by 90%, and at the start of this summer season covered just under 1,000 sq km (400 sq miles).
Much of the area was lost during a warm period in the 1930s and 1940s.
Temperatures in the Arctic are now even higher than they were then, and a period of renewed ice shelf break-up has ensued since 2002.
Unlike much of the floating sea-ice which comes and goes, the shelves contain ice that is up to 4,500 years old.
A rapid sea-ice retreat is being experienced across the Arctic again this year, affecting both the ice attached to the coast and floating in the open ocean.
The floating sea-ice, which would normally keep the shelves hemmed in, has shrunk to just under five million sq km, the second lowest extent recorded since the era of satellite measurement began about 30 years ago.
"Reduced sea-ice conditions and unusually high air temperatures have facilitated the ice shelf losses this summer," said Dr Luke Copland from the University of Ottawa.
"And extensive new cracks across remaining parts of the Ward Hunt Ice Shelf mean that it will continue to disintegrate in the coming years."
Loss of ice in the Arctic, and in particular the extensive sea-ice, has global implications.
The "white parasol" at the top of the planet reflects energy from the Sun straight back out into space, helping to cool the Earth.
Further loss of Arctic ice will see radiation absorbed by darker seawater and snow-free land, potentially warming the Earth's climate at an even faster rate than current observational data indicates.

Lungs — the black spots are areas of growing cancer
Melanoma
In 1930 melanoma was rare, with a lifetime risk of just one in 1,500 people. Since then, it has grown exponentially, with a lifetime risk in the United States of 1 in 250 in 1980, 1 in 120 in 1987, 1 in 75 by 2000 and 1 in 32 today (Swetter 2007).
The black cells of melanoma will strike an estimated 59,940 in the United States in 2007 and kill a projected 8,110 (American Cancer Society 2006).
Worldwide it annually strikes an estimated 132,000 people with an estimated 48,000 deaths (Lucas: W.H.O. 2006).
...In 2006, the nation's most successful class-action law firm, Lerach, Coughlin, Stoia, Geller, Rudman & Robbins LLP, filed a class action lawsuit against leading sunscreen producers (including Schering-Plough, makers of Coppertone, Sun Pharmaceuticals, producers of Banana Boat, Tanning Research Laboratories, (Hawaiian Tropic), Neutrogena Corp. and Johnson & Johnson (Neutrogena), and Chattem Inc. (Bullfrog).
Samuel Rudman, a partner, claimed, 'Sunscreen is the Snake Oil of the 21st Century and these companies that market it are Fortune 500 Snake Oil salesmen.'
'False claims such as ‘sunblock’ ‘waterproof’ and ‘all-day protection’ should be removed from these products immediately,' he said.
Australia and New Zealand
Australia and New Zealand have the highest melanoma rates on the planet (one in 25 will get melanoma in Aussieland) and as a result have taken dramatic public health measures to fight the disease.
They have a "No Hat, No Play" rule.
Every child must wear a hat to play outside.
Recess times are often scheduled outside the 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. time frame.
Soccer games, played without hats under the high sun in the U.S. are delayed till a safer time Down Under.
Children have begun wearing neck-to-knee swimsuits on beaches and at pools.
Lifeguards are directed to set an example by wearing sunglasses, wide-brimmed hats, long-sleeved shirts, zinc oxide, and sunscreen as well as sitting in the shade.
Many pools and playgrounds are now covered by expansive tents or newly planted trees (Gies et al. 1998).
There is an error in the below article 'Melanoma, Baseball Caps and Sunscreen.'   The writer Brian Mckenna provides details of supposed chlorofluorocarbons reduction with the heading 'We addressed Ozone, we can do it with sunscreens'
We have not stopped the depletion of ozone.
This fallacy is perpetuated both by mainstream media and by such internet outlets such as 'Counterpunch' and is now accepted by the populace, even by scientists who never bother to check for correct data.
Chlorofluorocarbons is merely one of the causes of ozone depletion.
Chlorofluorocarbon spreading into the atmosphere has not been eliminated.

A Climate Threat From Flat TVs, Microchips
A synthetic chemical widely used in the manufacture of computers and flat-screen televisions is a potent greenhouse gas, with 17,000 times the global warming effect of carbon dioxide, but its measure in the atmosphere has never been taken, nor is it regulated by international treaty.
by Margot Roosevelt
The chemical, nitrogen trifluoride (NF3), could be considered the “missing greenhouse gas,” atmospheric chemists Michael J. Prather and Juno Hsu of UC Irvine wrote in a paper released June 26 in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.
“With the surge in flat-panel displays, the market for NF3 has exploded.”
The rapid growth in production alarms some climate scientists.
Nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) in atmosphere has life of 550 years
In the atmosphere it has a life of 550 years, according to calculations by Prather and Hsu.
When the Kyoto Protocol, the 1997 international global warming treaty, was negotiated to control the rapid rise of planet-warming gases, NF3 was a niche product used in modest amounts in the semiconductor industry.
At the time, computer chip manufacturers used perfluorocarbons to clean the vacuum chambers where integrated circuits were made.
But about two-thirds of the PFCs escaped into the atmosphere, contributing to the greenhouse effect, a warming of the Earth’s surface.
Reacting to environmental concerns, the industry sought a substitute — and estimated that NF3, though it had greater potential for global warming, was less likely to escape into the air.
“We moved into manufacturing NF3 for environmental reasons,” said Corning F. Painter, vice president of global electronics for Air Products in Allentown, Pa., the world’s leading producer.
The company received a 2002 Climate Protection Award from the Environmental Protection Agency for its transition.

Last year, it announced a major production expansion at its U.S. and Korean plants.
About three-quarters of the chemical is now used to manufacture computer microchips; the rest is used to make liquid crystal display panels on flat-screen televisions, Painter said.
Overall, world production of NF3 is likely to reach 8,000 tons a year by 2010, Painter said.
That is the equivalent of more than 130 million metric tons of carbon dioxide.
By comparison, according to the UC Irvine paper, a major coal-fired power plant producing 3,600 megawatts of electricity emits as much as 25 million metric tons of carbon dioxide a year.
Air Products officials say that about 2% of NF3 is emitted during manufacturing and that much of that is burned off before reaching the atmosphere.
But Prather, a leading author of the influential reports of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, cited a study showing that even “under ideal conditions,” more than 3% may be emitted.
And, he added, “a slippery gas” such as NF3 could easily leak out undetected during manufacture, transport, application or disposal.
“We don’t know if 1% is getting out or 20% is getting out. . . . But once you let the genie out of the bottle, you can’t get it back in.”
Prather said UC Irvine researchers were working on a method to measure concentrations of the gas in the atmosphere so that industry emissions estimates would not be the only source of information.
Atmospheric scientists not connected with the paper said the authors had raised a significant issue for future climate negotiations.
“NF3 lives a very long time in the atmosphere,” said Charles E. Kolb Jr., an IPCC scientist with Massachusetts-based Aerodyne Research Inc.
“We are having a hard enough time controlling carbon dioxide and methane — we shouldn’t be creating a new problem.”
Another climate scientist, V. (Ram) Ramanathan of UC San Diego, noted the potency and long life of NF3, adding:
“This paper raises new awareness of this molecule. We need to know how much of these super-greenhouse gases are up there.”
The Kyoto Protocol covered six greenhouse gases: carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons, PFCs and sulfur hexafluoride.
California, citing the danger of water shortages, wildfires and other effects of climate change, last month adopted a draft plan to control global warming emissions statewide, including several synthetic greenhouse gases but not NF3.
“The larger issue is the chlorofluorocarbons and hydrochlorofluorocarbons,” said state air resources board spokesman Stanley Young.
“Enough material [is] stored in old refrigerators, air conditioners and insulating foams to equal over 600 million metric tons of carbon dioxide in California alone.”

Relieving stress
Obviously we need refrigeration
Just not that which will be the cause of our children to not exist
Global weather, environment and climate change

Refrigerators and televisions are lined up to be destroyed during an anti-stress session or 'Destruction Therapy' before town's fiestas in Castejon, northern Spain, June 21, 2008.

The therapy was aimed to relieve stress at the workplace and this was the first time the general public had participated, the events organizers, Stop Stress Navarra said.

A synthetic chemical widely used in the manufacture of computers and flat-screen televisions is a potent greenhouse gas, with 17,000 times the global warming effect of carbon dioxide, but its measure in the atmosphere has never been taken, nor is it regulated by international treaty.

Nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) in atmosphere has life of 550 years

The thin ozone belt in the stratosphere protects human, animal and plant life from ultraviolet rays sent from the sun.

UVA, UVB, and UVC rays if not stopped in their maximum intensity from reaching Earth by stratosphere ozone would mean Humans will not be able to step outside without huge special clothing screening all the body.

All animal life will die if not kept indoors and never allowed outside.

Most plant life will not be able to grow, including all plants that provide food that humans and animals eat.

Antarctic Ice Shelf ‘Hanging by Thread’: European Scientists
Images taken by its Envisat remote-sensing satellite show that Wilkins Ice Shelf is “hanging by its last thread” to Charcot Island, one of the plate’s key anchors to the Antarctic peninsula, ESA said in a press release.
PARIS — New evidence has emerged that a large plate of floating ice shelf attached to Antarctica is breaking up, in a troubling sign of global warming, the European Space Agency (ESA) said on Thursday.
“Since the connection to the island… helps stabilise the ice shelf, it is likely the breakup of the bridge will put the remainder of the ice shelf at risk,” it said.
Wilkins Ice Shelf had been stable for most of the last century, covering around 16,000 square kilometres (6,000 square miles), or about the size of Northern Ireland, before it began to retreat in the 1990s.
Since then several large areas have broken away, and two big breakoffs this year left only a narrow ice bridge about 2.7 kilometres (1.7 miles) wide to connect the shelf to Charcot and nearby Latady Island.
The latest images, taken by Envisat’s radar, say fractures have now opened up in this bridge and adjacent areas of the plate are disintegrating, creating large icebergs.
Scientists are puzzled and concerned by the event, ESA added.
The Antarctic peninsula — the tongue of land that juts northward from the white continent towards South America — has had one of the highest rates of warming anywhere in the world in recent decades.
But this latest stage of the breakup occurred during the Southern Hemisphere’s winter, when atmospheric temperatures are at their lowest.
One idea is that warmer water from the Southern Ocean is reaching the underside of the ice shelf and thinning it rapidly from underneath.
“Wilkins Ice Shelf is the most recent in a long, and growing, list of ice shelves on the Antarctic Peninsula that are responding to the rapid warming that has occurred in this area over the last fifty years,” researcher David Vaughan of the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) said.
“Current events are showing that we were being too conservative, when we made the prediction in the early 1990s that Wilkins Ice Shelf would be lost within 30 years. The truth is, it is going more quickly than we guessed.”
In the past three decades, six Antarctic ice shelves have collapsed completely — Prince Gustav Channel, Larsen Inlet, Larsen A, Larsen B, Wordie, Muller and the Jones Ice Shelf.

An Epoch in the making
By Roland Pease
BBC Radio Science Unit
Global weather, environment and climate change

Epoch in the making.

We may be witnessing a transformation of the Earth as profound as the end of the age of the dinosaurs, and entering a geological period as distinctive as the Jurassic - and the reason is that we are causing it.

Writing in the house journal of the Geological Society of America, GSA Today, Britain's leading stratigraphers (experts in marking geological time) say it is already possible to identify a host of geological indicators that will be recognisable millions of years into the future as marking the start of a new epoch — the Anthropocene.
We may be witnessing a transformation of the Earth as profound as the end of the age of the dinosaurs, and entering a geological period as distinctive as the Jurassic — and the reason is that we are causing it.
Writing in the house journal of the Geological Society of America, GSA Today, Britain's leading stratigraphers (experts in marking geological time) say it is already possible to identify a host of geological indicators that will be recognisable millions of years into the future as marking the start of a new epoch — the Anthropocene.
Geologists have long divided the Earth's history into distinct epochs, periods and eras — with names as familiar as the Triassic or the Carboniferous.
Transitions between them can be easily recognised, with sharp changes in the fossil record, or in the chemistry of the rocks of the time.
Sometimes the boundaries mark extreme violence.
The end of the Cretaceous Period 65 million years ago, and with it the dinosaurs, and the beginning of the Tertiary (the 'third' age of geology) came with the impact of a huge asteroid.
A force of nature
Sediments around the world from that time carry a tell-tale layer tinged with iridium, a metal more common in space than it is on the Earth's surface.
There can also be soot — the result of global wildfires that followed the catastrophe.   The fossil record either side of the boundary is quite distinct.
Plate tectonics, the slow movement of the continents, has also created dramatic changes, as huge mountain ranges are built or ocean basins are cut off or opened up.
New periods are created as the Earth system passes through a new threshold.
But the new epoch has not been shaped by these relentless forces of the deep Earth or the violence of extraterrestrial impacts.   Instead, say the scientists, it has been moulded by a single species — man — so that it should be called the Anthropocene, the time of man.
"It's extraordinary how a single species could have such an effect on the whole planet," says Leicester University's Dr Jan Zalasiewicz, who heads the Stratigraphic Commission of the Geological Society, the team that penned the new report.
"Human activity exceeds natural processes in many ways.
It's extraordinary how a single species could have such an effect on the whole planet
Dr Jan Zalasiewicz, Leicester University
"For example, humans emit more CO2 than do volcanoes by quite a long way; humans move more material across the surface of the Earth than do rivers, landslides and floods."
'Blink of an eye'
Bringing an academic rigour to a concept that has been circulating since 2000 when it was first proposed by Nobel Laureate and ozone expert Paul Crutzen, the researchers ask whether there is a worldwide signature that could be recognised long into the future as marking the start of this new epoch.
"What we're asking is what the record in the rocks of the human species is going to look like," says co-author Dr Andy Gale, from the University of Portsmouth.
"It's fascinating thinking what record future geologists will see of human activity.
"For one thing, there will be a hell of a lot of concrete.   And the disruption to the Earth's surface, stripped for farming and mining, causing a vast increase in the amount of mud and sand sediment going into the oceans."
"There are other signals," adds Dr Zalasiewicz.   "The oceans are acidifying right now.   If they acidify much further, coral reefs will stop growing.   And so reef limestone will stop being produced.   And that will be another very obvious sign in future strata."
Huge changes will occur in the fossil record.   Not just because of the mass extinction we are causing, but because of the huge number of human remains that will become melded into future rock layers.
Many of these geological changes stretch out over generations of human history — frustrating attempts to pinpoint the kind of "golden spike" the geologists would like.   But even a thousand human generations would be but the blink of an eye in the deep geological record.
"In many rock successions a thousand years can be a millimetre or two," explains Andy Gale.
"So geologically speaking, this series of events is proceeding very fast.   I don't think the changes are going to be subtle at all — these signs would be very conspicuous"
Future geologists
Epochs come lowest in the order of geological timescale.   By current definitions, we're in the Holocene epoch ("wholly recent") that started at the end of the last ice age.   The larger timescales — the periods and eras — are driven by more powerful forces.
The question the geologists are asking is just how big a change we are wreaking on the planet.
You could say the Anthropocene started 200 years ago with the industrial revolution, or 5,000 years ago when sediments started accumulating the first signals of metalwork.   But equally interesting is when it will end.
"If humans stop, it won't be that the effects stop.   The effects will ramify through the system for a considerable time.   If the impacts are big enough, you make whole groups of creatures extinct.   And then the future life comes from the survivors, so life changes? and the Earth changes."
This happened when the dinosaurs were wiped out, heralding a new period of Earth history.   The comparison is irresistible to the report's authors, including Dr Mark Williams of Leicester University: "We are clearly changing the planet at an exponential rate.   And it's possible we could be starting a new geological period and this could be the Anthropocene Period."
Unfortunately to find out, we may need to wait tens if not hundreds of millions of years.

Brazil sees record deforestation
Aerial view of deforestation in Brazil, picture by Greenpeace

The Amazon has long been known as the 'lungs of the world'
The Amazon has long been known as the "lungs of the world"
The Brazilian government has announced a record rate of deforestation in the Amazon, months after celebrating its success in achieving a reduction.
In the last five months of 2007, 3,000 sq km (1,250 sq miles) were lost.
Gilberto Camara, whose National Institute of Space Research provides satellite imaging of the Amazon, said the figure was unprecedented.
"We've never before detected such a high deforestation rate at this time of year," he said.
His concern, outlined during a press conference in Brasilia on Wednesday, was echoed by Environment Minister Marina Silva.
Soya expensive
Ms Silva said the rise in the price of commodities such as soya could have influenced the rate of forest clearing, as more and more farmers saw the Amazon as a source of cheap land.
"The economic reality of these states indicate that these activities impact, without a shadow of a doubt, on the forest," she said.
The state of Mato Grosso was the worst affected, contributing more than half the total area of forest stripped, or 1,786 sq km (700 sq miles).
President Luis Inacio Lula da Silva is expected to attend an emergency meeting on the issue.
The rise in deforestation will be an embarrassment for the Brazilian president, who last year said his government's efforts to control illegal logging and introduce better certification of land ownership had helped reduce forest clearance significantly.
Even as he celebrated the success, though, environmentalists were warning that the rate was rising again.
The situation may also be worse than reported, with the environment ministry saying the preliminary assessment of the amount of forest cleared could double as more detailed satellite images are analysed.

The mining industry has enormous impacts on the environment and on local communities.

Local and regional effects of coal mining in NSW include conversion of vast swathes of land into desolate wastelands; habitat loss and species extinction; cracked river beds; waterways polluted with salt and sediment; air, noise, and visual pollution resulting in negative health impacts on local communities; exploitative workplace practices; displacement of alternative industries, and more.

And because over 90% of NSW's electricity is generated from coal, and Newcastle is the world's biggest coal export port, the global impacts of the NSW mining are far greater still.

Don't let them tell you it's all due to the Sun heating up, folks.
The simple truth is that 90% of the coming problems with global warming will be due to the stratosphere COOLING.
The stratosphere, above the troposphere where our atmosphere and planes fly, is heated by rays from Earth reflecting heat from the sun back into the stratosphere.
This heat is necessary to create Ozone.
Ozone is destroyed when the Stratosphere cools, in Northern and Austral winters.
Ozone holes are produced with this cooling.
The sun's increasing heat is modifying global warming, but it is helping us.
It's rays have to pass through the stratosphere, a slight increase of heating in the process.
But the stratosphere is cooling.
Why?
Global Warming Gasses!!
The stratosphere is cooling because heat rays reflected heating from Earth are not getting to it.
Gasses sent up from Earth are forming a barrier to heat rays getting to the stratosphere.
So the rays reflect back, which makes everything below, including your back-yard, warmer.
All the oceans.
The Arctic.
And less ozone to protect us, swirling in the stratosphere.

Don't let business conglomerates deceive you
It's your planet
Oct. 9, 2006 the total column ozone had plunged to 93 DU
Nearly all ozone in layer between eight and 13 miles above Earth's surface had been destroyed
Record low of only 1.2 DU
Ozone protection has allowed the creation of animal and plant life on the planet
Greenhouse gases have an enormous influence
on the creation of ozone
The coal industry has spent a lot of money promoting a technology called 'carbon capture and storage'
Recent experiments have shown unexpected results with storage, with the gas dissolving the rocks that are meant to contain it.
The cost of CCS would double the cost of the electricity where storage sites are distant
Above the cost of many clean and renewable energy sources

Most people now realise that the costs of coal mining outweigh the benefits.
Cheap consumer items might be a little bit fun, but they are no substitute for an intact community and a liveable planet.
By attempting to convince us that we cannot stop coal mining, the NSW Minerals Council is creating a sense of despair about the future, and about our common ability to create a better one.
The reality is that we can have jobs without coal, and we can have energy without coal, but we cannot have a coal industry without climate change.
Anyone who tells you otherwise is trying to sell something.
Probably coal.

From Papal Indulgences to Carbon Credits
Is Global Warming a Sin?
By Alexander Cockburn
Fleche Wallonne cycling, Huy eastern Belgium
I n a couple of hundred years, historians will be comparing the frenzies over our supposed human contribution to global warming to the tumults at the latter end of the tenth century as the Christian millennium approached.
Then, as now, the doomsters identified human sinfulness as the propulsive factor in the planet's rapid downward slide.
Then as now, a buoyant market throve on fear.
The Roman Catholic Church was a bank whose capital was secured by the infinite mercy of Christ, Mary and the Saints, and so the Pope could sell indulgences, like checks.
The sinners established a line of credit against bad behavior and could go on sinning.
Today a world market in "carbon credits" is in formation.
Those whose "carbon footprint" is small can sell their surplus carbon credits to others, less virtuous than themselves.

Carbon trafficking is powered by the elite seeking to retain control
The modern trade is as fantastical as the medieval one.
There is still zero empirical evidence that anthropogenic production of CO2 is making any measurable contribution to the world's present warming trend.
The greenhouse fearmongers rely entirely on unverified, crudely oversimplified computer models to finger mankind's sinful contribution.
Devoid of any sustaining scientific basis, carbon trafficking is powered by guilt, credulity, cynicism and greed, just like the old indulgences, though at least the latter produced beautiful monuments.
By the sixteenth century, long after the world had sailed safely through the end of the first millennium, Pope Leo X financed the reconstruction of St. Peter's Basilica by offering a "plenary" indulgence, guaranteed to release a soul from purgatory.

Now imagine two lines on a piece of graph paper.
The first rises to a crest, then slopes sharply down, then levels off and rises slowly once more.
The other has no undulations.
It rises in a smooth, slowly increasing arc.
The first, wavy line is the worldwide CO2 tonnage produced by humans burning coal, oil and natural gas.
On this graph it starts in 1928, at 1.1 gigatons (i.e. 1.1 billion metric tons).
It peaks in 1929 at 1.17 gigatons. The world, led by its mightiest power, the USA, plummets into the Great Depression, and by 1932 human CO2 production has fallen to 0.88 gigatons a year, a 30 per cent drop.
Hard times drove a tougher bargain than all the counsels of Al Gore or the jeremiads of the IPCC (Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change).
Then, in 1933 it began to climb slowly again, up to 0.9 gigatons.
These days the Carbon Dioxide level is at 380 parts per million — and rising sharply
And the other line, the one ascending so evenly?
That's the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere, parts per million (ppm) by volume, moving in 1928 from just under 306, hitting 306 in 1929, to 307 in 1932 and on up.
Boom and bust, the line heads up steadily.
These days it's at 380.
There are, to be sure, seasonal variations in CO2, as measured since 1958 by the instruments on Mauna Loa, Hawai'i.
(Pre-1958 measurements are of air bubbles trapped in glacial ice.)
Summer and winter vary steadily by about 5 ppm, reflecting photosynthesis cycles.
The two lines on that graph proclaim that a whopping 30 per cent cut in man-made CO2 emissions didn't even cause a 1 ppm drop in the atmosphere's CO2.
Thus it is impossible to assert that the increase in atmospheric CO2 stems from human burning of fossil fuels.

Check the mountain peaks, the rapidly diminishing ice streams, the Arctic regions, the Antarctic peninsula, before you gauge how little that bit warmer is.
I met Dr. Martin Hertzberg, the man who drew that graph and those conclusions, on a Nation cruise back in 2001.
He remarked that while he shared many of the Nation's editorial positions, he approved of my reservations on the issue of supposed human contributions to global warming, as outlined in columns I wrote at that time.
Hertzberg was a meteorologist for three years in the U.S. Navy, an occupation which gave him a lifelong mistrust of climate modeling.
Trained in chemistry and physics, a combustion research scientist for most of his career, he's retired now in Copper Mountain, Colorado, still consulting from time to time.
Not so long ago, Hertzberg sent me some of his recent papers on the global warming hypothesis, a construct now accepted by many progressives as infallible as Papal dogma on matters of faith or doctrine. Among them was the graph described above so devastating to the hypothesis.
As Hertzberg readily acknowledges, the carbon dioxide content of the atmosphere has increased about 21 per cent in the past century.
The world has also been getting just a little bit warmer.

The not very reliable data on the world's average temperature (which omit most of the world's oceans and remote regions, while over-representing urban areas) show about a 0.5Co increase in average temperature between 1880 and 1980, and it's still rising, more sharply in the polar regions than elsewhere.
But is CO2, at 380 parts per million in the atmosphere, playing a significant role in retaining the 94 per cent of solar radiation that's absorbed in the atmosphere, as against water vapor, also a powerful heat absorber, whose content in humid tropical atmosphere, can be as high as 2 per cent, the equivalent of 20,000 ppm.
As Hertzberg says, water in the form of oceans, clouds, snow, ice cover and vapor "is overwhelming in the radiative and energy balance between the earth and the sun Carbon dioxide and the greenhouse gases are, by comparison, the equivalent of a few farts in a hurricane."
And water is exactly that component of the earth's heat balance that the global warming computer models fail to account for.

DNA reveals Greenland's lush past
SAMPLE SITES
Map of Greenland
Dye 3: 2km long ice core
Greenland Ice Core Project (GRIP): 3km long ice core
John Evans Glacier (JEG): Control site
Kap Kobenhavn: Previously youngest known Greenland forest
Armies of insects once crawled through lush forests in a region of Greenland now covered by more than 2,000m of ice.
DNA extracted from ice cores shows that moths and butterflies were living in forests of spruce and pine in the area between 450,000 and 800,000 years ago.
Researchers writing in Science magazine say the specimens could represent the oldest pure DNA samples ever obtained.
The ice cores also suggest that the ice sheet is more resistant to warming than previously thought, the scientists say.
"We have shown for the first time that southern Greenland, which is currently hidden under more than 2km of ice, was once very different to the Greenland we see today," said Professor Eske Willerslev from the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, and one of the authors of the paper.
"What we've learned is that this part of the world was significantly warmer than most people thought," added Professor Martin Sharp from the University of Alberta, Canada, and a co-author of the Science paper.
Ice-locker
The ancient boreal forests were thought to cover southern Greenland during a period of increased global temperatures, known as an interglacial.
Temperatures at the time were probably between 10C in summer and -17C in winter.
When the temperatures dropped again 450,000 years ago, the forests and their inhabitants were covered by the advancing ice, effectively freezing them in time.
Studies suggest that even during the last interglacial (116,000-130,000 years ago), when temperatures were thought to be 5C warmer than today, the ice persevered, keeping the delicate samples entombed and free from contamination and decay.
At the time the ice is estimated to have been between 1,000 and 1,500m thick.
"If our data is correct, then this means that the southern Greenland ice cap is more stable than previously thought," said Professor Willerslev. "This may have implications for how the ice sheets respond to global warming."
Research by Australian scientists has suggested that a 3C rise in global temperatures would be enough to trigger the melting of the Greenland ice sheet.
In 2006, research conducted by researchers at Nasa suggested that the rate of melting of the giant ice sheet had tripled since 2004.
While in February 2006, researchers found that Greenland's glaciers were moving much faster than before, meaning that more of its ice was entering the sea.
And in 1996, Greenland was losing about 100 cubic km per year in mass from its ice sheet; by 2005, this had increased to about 220 cubic km.
A complete melt of the ice sheet would cause a global sea level rise of about 7m; but the current picture indicates that while some regions are thinning, others are apparently getting thicker.
 
Plant-life
The new results were obtained from the sediment rich bottom of ice cores.
The 2km-long Dye 3 core was drilled in south-central Greenland, whilst the 3km-long Greenland Ice Core Project (GRIP) core was taken from the summit of the Greenland ice sheet.
Samples from other glaciers, such as the John Evans Glacier on Ellesmere Island, in northern Canada, were used as a control, to verify the age of the samples and to confirm that the DNA was from plants that grew in southern Greenland, rather than from plant matter carried by wind or water from elsewhere in the world.
Although the ice contained only a handful of pollen grains and no fossils, the researchers were able to extract DNA from the organic matter held in the silt.
Comparisons with modern species show that the area was populated by diverse forests made up of alders, spruce, pine and members of the yew family.
Living in the trees and on the forest floor was a wide variety of life including beetles, flies, spiders, butterflies and moths.
The discovery pushes forward the date when the last forests were known to exist in Greenland by nearly two million years.
Previously, the youngest fossil evidence of a native forest in the region came from fossils found in the Kap Kobenhavn Formation in northern Greenland. There, the fossils date from around 2.4m years ago.
The study paves the way for scientists to probe beneath the ice in other parts of the world.
"Given that 10% of the Earth's terrestrial surface is covered by thick ice sheets, it could open up a world of new discoveries," said Dr Enrico Cappellini of the University of York, UK.

Warming of glaciers threatens millions in China
Robert Collier, Chronicle Staff Writer
Wednesday, August 1, 2007

Anyemaqen Mountains, China — More than 3 miles above sea level in these jagged, wind-scoured mountains, there's little doubt that global warming is endangering China's future.
Gyaring Lake
Source of Yellow River
The glaciers that ripple off the peaks of Anyemaqen, a mountain range in the western China province of Qinghai, are shrinking rapidly, endangering hundreds of millions of people who depend on the waters flowing eastward through the Yellow River.
With the rest of the country punished by record heat waves, floods and droughts this summer, it's no wonder that Beijing, which has long viewed global warming as a problem that rich nations should solve, is waking up to the fact that China may be especially at risk.
Qinghai, a poor, Texas-size stretch of the northern Tibetan is a plateau where yaks outnumber humans.
Qinghai Lake is a saltwater body about 200 miles away.
Deaths from floods, lightning and landslides across China in recent weeks have reached nearly 700, state media reported this week, and officials warned that global warming is likely to cause even more violent weather.
Records for worst-in-a-century rainstorms, droughts and heat waves are being broken more often
"The frequency and intensity of extreme weather events are increasing — records for worst-in-a-century rainstorms, droughts and heat waves are being broken more often," said Dong Wenjie, director-general of the Beijing Climate Center.
"This in fact is closely associated with global warming."
At Anyemaqen, a hike into the remote area last week by a Chronicle reporter found that the 5-mile-long Halong Glacier has shrunk by several hundred yards since it was last photographed by a Greenpeace activist in 2005 — and by a mile since a similar photo in 1981.
Local nomads say their livelihood is at stake.
"When I was a child, it was very cold and the grass was long, up to here," said Namgyal Tsering, a 22-year-old herder, motioning to his shin as he perched on a high ridge and watched his flock of sheep.
"Now the grass is short, and many people have moved into towns."
Area of glaciers has shrunk by 30 percent
The Qinghai-Tibetan plateau is warming up faster than anywhere else in the world, Chinese scientists said last week.
The region's average annual temperature is rising at a speed of 0.7 degrees Fahrenheit every 10 years, threatening to melt glaciers, dry up the 3,395-mile Yellow River and cause more droughts, sandstorms and desertification.
The plateau once contained 36,000 glaciers covering an area of 18,000 square miles, but in recent decades, the area of these glaciers has shrunk by 30 percent, say scientists from the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
The government has forcibly moved thousands of nomads into local towns, giving them free housing and 8,000 yuan (about $1,060) per year.
A scattering of interviews with the resettled nomads showed that while some liked their new life and some didn't, all agreed that their life before had become untenable.
"Before, there was no grass, and the rats dug holes everywhere and the ground was black," recalled Chith Tsering, holding her 1-year-old daughter as she multitasked around her family's three-room house in Dawu.
Even a sport utility vehicle
Since she moved from her remote grassland ranch three years ago, "it's better, but it's sad," she said.
Around Qinghai's steep canyons and rolling grassland, there's an obvious new prosperity among the rural Tibetan people.
China's surging economic boom has reached into even the most remote hamlets.
Nearly every tent or house has a new motorcycle — or even a sport utility vehicle — parked outside, evidence that rising demand by city dwellers for meat had driven up prices for the region's yaks and sheep.
From village to village, Tibetan Buddhist temples that were torn down during the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s and early 1970s are now being rebuilt — often with money from newly wealthy businessmen in major cities such as Beijing and Guangzhou.
Spidery webs of prayer flags stretch up mountainsides at seemingly every bend in the road, a testament to the resurgence of ethnic Tibetans' spirituality as the Chinese government loosens its harsh restrictions on religious life.
China due to US, European, South American and Asian imports, world's No. 1 source of greenhouse gas emissions
The nationwide economic boom has propelled China into overtaking the United States as the world's No. 1 source of greenhouse gas emissions, according to new data released in May.
China's output of emissions is rising by an annual amount that far outstrips the cutbacks that wealthy nations are committed to make under the Kyoto Protocol.
"The Chinese government is gradually realizing that global warming is something that will deeply affect the Chinese people and their economic security," said Yang Ailun, climate program coordinator for Greenpeace in China.
In international climate negotiations, China's leaders have refused to consider binding limits on the country's emissions, arguing that limits should be imposed only on wealthy nations.
Instead, China has adopted a goal of reducing the amount of energy expended per unit of wealth — a weaker yardstick that many environmentalists have criticized as insufficient.
In recent months, however, officials have discussed these goals with increasing urgency, noting the recent extreme weather.
But the effects of climate change can be fickle, as Paulson found Monday.
During drought years in the late 1990s through 2005, the salt lake's area shrank by more than a fourth.
But during a Chronicle reporter's recent visit, the salt lake was brimming over its banks because of weeks of steady rains — the same weather pattern that, farther east, was causing severe flooding.
The hills surrounding the lake were verdant, and yaks have abundant pasture, locals said.
Downstream on the Yellow River, where farmers depend on the trickle to water their crops, floods and hail killed 17 people across four provinces last weekend alone.
Beijing inundated by torrential rains, Shanghai hit all-time record of 103 degrees Fahrenheit
Beijing was inundated by torrential rains Monday night, and Shanghai hit an all-time record of 103 degrees Fahrenheit over the weekend.
Two hundred miles south in Dawu, however, Chith Tsering said she was glad her family had moved off the land.
"The weather is changing, and it's so hard to make a living off your animals," she said.
"There are many people still on the land who are suffering."

Danish scientist Niels Harrit on nano-thermite in the WTC dust.

Niels Harrit, you and eight other researchers conclude in this article that it was nano-thermite that caused these buildings to collapse.

We have discovered distinctive red/gray chips in all the samples we have studied of the dust produced by the destruction of the World Trade Center.

One sample was collected by a Manhattan resident about ten minutes after the collapse of the second WTC Tower, two the next day, and a fourth about a week later.

The properties of these chips were analyzed using optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (XEDS), and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC).

The red portion of these chips is found to be an unreacted thermitic material and highly energetic.

The carbon content of the red material indicates that an organic substance is present.

This would be expected for super-thermite formulations in order to produce high gas pressures upon ignition and thus make them explosive.

Niels Harrit interview on Danish TV2 television.

So you found nano-thermite in the World Trade Center buildings, why do you think it caused the collapses?

A new scientific article concludes that impacts from the two hijacked aircraft did not cause the collapses in 2001.
We turn our attention to 9/11 — the major attack in New York.
Apparently the two airplane-impacts did not cause the towers to collapse, according to a newly published scientific article.
Researchers found nano-thermite explosive in the rubble, that cannot have come from the planes.
They believe several tonnes of explosives were placed in the buildings in advance.
Niels Harrit, you and eight other researchers conclude in this article, that it was nano-thermite that caused these buildings to collapse. What is nano-thermite?
Niels Harrit   We found nano-thermite in the rubble.
We are not saying only nano-thermite was used.
Thermite itself dates back to 1893.
It is a mixture of aluminum and rust-powder, which react to create intense heat.
The reaction produces iron, heated to 2500 °C.
This can be used to do welding.   It can also be used to melt other iron.
Nanotechnology makes things smaller.   So in nano-thermite, this powder from 1893 is reduced to tiny particles, perfectly mixed.
When these react, the intense heat develops much more quickly.
Nano-thermite can be mixed with additives to give off intense heat, or serve as a very effective explosive.
It contains more energy than dynamite, and can be used as rocket fuel.
Danish TV2   I Googled nano-thermite, and not much has been written about it.   Is it a widely known scientific substance?   Or is it so new that other scientists are hardly aware of it?
Niels Harrit   It is a collective name for substances with high levels of energy.
If civilian researchers (like myself) are not familiar with it, it is probably because they do not do much work with explosives.
As for military scientists, you would have to ask them.
I do not know how familiar they are with nanotechnology.
Danish TV2   So you found this substance in the WTC, why do you think it caused the collapses?
Niels Harrit   Well, it's an explosive.   Why else would it be there?
Danish TV2   You believe the intense heat melted the building?s steel support structure, and caused the building to collapse like a house of cards?
Niels Harrit   I cannot say precisely, as this substance can serve both purposes.
It can explode and break things apart, and it can melt things.
Both effects were probably used, as I see it.
Molten metal pours out of the South Tower several minutes before the collapse.
This indicates the whole structure was being weakened in advance.
Then the regular explosives come into play.
The actual collapse sequence had to be perfectly timed, all the way down.
Danish TV2   What quantities are we talking about?
Niels Harrit   A lot.   There were only two planes, but three skyscrapers collapsed.
We know roughly how much dust was created.
The pictures show huge quantities, everything but the steel was pulverised.
And we know roughly how much unreacted thermite we have found.

This is the “loaded gun”, material that did not ignite for some reason.
We are talking about tonnes.   Over 10 tonnes, possibly 100 tonnes.
Danish TV2   Ten tonnes, possibly 100 tonnes, in three buildings?   And these substances are not normally found in such buildings?
Niels Harrit   No.   These materials are extremely advanced.
Danish TV2   How do you place such material in a skyscraper, on all the floors?
Niels Harrit   How you would get it in?
Danish TV2   Yes.
Niels Harrit   If I had to transport it in those quantities I would use pallets.   Get a truck and move it in on pallets.
Danish TV2   Why hasn't this been discovered earlier?
Niels Harrit   By whom?
Danish TV2   The caretakers, for example.     If you are moving 10 to 100 tonnes of nano-thermite around, and placing it on all the floors.     I am just surprised no-one noticed.
Niels Harrit   As a journalist, you should address that question to the company responsible for security at the WTC.
Danish TV2   So you are in no doubt the material was present?
Niels Harrit   You cannot fudge this kind of science.
We have found it.   Unreacted thermite.
Danish TV2   What responses has your article received around the world?
Niels Harrit   It is completely new knowledge for me.
It was only published last Friday.   So it is too early to say.
But the article may not be as groundbreaking as you think.
Hundreds of thousands of people around the world, have long known that the three buildings were demolished.

This has been crystal clear.
Our research is just the last nail in the coffin.
This is not the 'smoking gun', it is the 'loaded gun'.
Each day, thousands of people realise that the WTC was demolished.
That is something unstoppable.
Danish TV2   Why has no-one discovered earlier that there was nano-thermite in the buildings?   Almost ten years have passed.
Niels Harrit   You mean in the dust?
Danish TV2   Yes.
Niels Harrit   It was by chance that someone looked at the dust with a microscope.
They are tiny red chips.
The biggest are 1 mm in size, and can be seen with the naked eye.
But you need a microscope to see the vast majority.
It was by chance that someone discovered them two years ago.
Danish TV2   It has taken 18 months to prepare the scientific article you refer to.
Niels Harrit   It is a very comprehensive article based on thorough research.
Danish TV2   You have been working on this for several years, because it didn't make sense to you.
Niels Harrit   Yes, over two years actually.
It all started when I saw the collapse of Building 7, the third skyscraper.
It collapsed seven hours after the twin towers.
And there were only two airplanes.
When you see a 47-storey building, 186m tall, collapse in 6.5 seconds, and you are a scientist, you think “what?”.
I had to watch it again… and again.
I hit the button 10 times, and my jaw dropped lower and lower.
Firstly, I had never heard of that building before.
And there was no visible reason why it should collapse in that way, straight down, in 6.5 seconds.
I have had no rest since that day.
Danish TV2   Ever since 9/11 there has been speculation, and conspiracy theories.   What do you say to viewers who hear about your research and say, “we?ve heard it all before, there are lots of conspiracy theories”.   What would you say to convince them that this is different?
Niels Harrit   I think there is only one conspiracy theory worth mentioning, the one involving 19 hijackers.
I think viewers should ask themselves what evidence they have seen to support the official conspiracy theory.
If anyone has seen evidence, I would like to hear about it
No-one has been formally charged.   No-one is 'wanted'.
Our work should lead to demands for a proper criminal investigation of the 9/11 terrorist attack.
Because it never happened.   We are still waiting for it.
We hope our results will be used as technical evidence when that day comes.
Danish TV2   Niels Harrit, fascinating, thanks for coming in.
Niels Harrit   My pleasure
ITALIAN SAYS 9-11 SOLVED
It’s common knowledge, he reveals
CIA — Mossad behind terror attacks
By the Staff of American Free Press
Former Italian President Francesco Cossiga, who revealed the existence of Operation Gladio, has told Italy’s oldest and most widely read newspaper that the 9-11 terrorist attacks were run by the CIA and Mossad, and that this was common knowledge among global intelligence agencies.
In what translates awkwardly into English, Cossiga told the newspaper Corriere della Sera:
“All the [intelligence services] of America and Europe… know well that the disastrous attack has been planned and realized from the Mossad, with the aid of the Zionist world in order to put under accusation the Arabic countries and in order to induce the western powers to take part … in Iraq [and] Afghanistan.”
Cossiga was elected president of the Italian Senate in July 1983 before winning a landslide election to become president of the country in 1985, and he remained until 1992.
Cossiga’s tendency to be outspoken upset the Italian political establishment, and he was forced to resign after revealing the existence of, and his part in setting up, Operation Gladio.
This was a rogue intelligence network under NATO auspices that carried out bombings across Europe in the 1960s, 1970s and ’80s.
Gladio’s specialty was to carry out what they termed 'false flag' operations — terror attacks that were blamed on their domestic and geopolitical opposition.
In March 2001, Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra stated, in sworn testimony:
“You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game.
The reason was quite simple: to force … the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security.”
Cossiga first expressed his doubts about 9-11 in 2001, and is quoted by 9-11 researcher Webster Tarpley saying:
“The mastermind of the attack must have been a sophisticated mind, provided with ample means not only to recruit fanatic kamikazes, but also highly specialized personnel.
I add one thing: it could not be accomplished without infiltrations in the radar and flight security personnel.”
Coming from a widely respected former head of state, Cossiga’s assertion that the 9-11 attacks were an inside job and that this is common knowledge among global intelligence agencies is illuminating.
It is one more eye-opening confirmation that has not been mentioned by America’s propaganda machine in print or on TV.
Nevertheless, because of his experience and status in the world, Cossiga cannot be discounted as a crackpot.

9/11
By all accounts, the unprecedented events of September 11th, 2001 changed the way our country functions, and in turn, the world.
It is therefore critical that conscientious Americans, as well as people around the globe, understand these events in detail.
Unfortunately the official reports, including The 9/11 Commission Report and the NIST WTC Report, written by those working under the direction of the Bush Administration, have been proven to be elaborate cover-ups.
Film: 9/11 Revisited
September 11th Revisited is perhaps the most riveting film ever made about the destruction of the World Trade Center.
This is a powerful documentary which features eyewitness accounts and archived news footage that was shot on September 11, 2001 but never replayed on television.
Featuring interviews with eyewitnesses & firefighters, along with expert analysis by Professor Steven E. Jones, Professor David Ray Griffin, MIT Engineer Jeffrey King, and Professor James H. Fetzer.
This film provides stunning evidence that explosives were used in the complete demolition of the WTC Twin Towers and WTC Building 7.

Forests fires that have ravaged southern Europe during the past month were some of the worst on record, the European Commission has said.
More than 3,000 sq km (1,200 sq miles) of forest had already burned this year, almost as much as in the whole of 2006, the commission said.
It warned of more fires in the days ahead, with Spain and Portugal, where temperatures are soaring, most at risk.
Most recently, fires in the Canary Islands have forced thousands to flee.
Firefighters there are continuing to battle two major fires which have razed some 350 sq km (135 sq miles) of land in the last few days.
Experts described the fires on Tenerife and Gran Canaria as an environmental catastrophe. Some 20% of forests have been destroyed, and recovery is expected to take years.
Rapid reaction force
The normal fire season in Europe has only just started but blistering heat and hot dry winds have already fanned wildfires across parts of southern Europe.

July 2007 was one of the worst-ever months on record, according to figures from the European Forest Fire Information System, which date back some 20 years.
Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece and Italy have all been affected, as well as countries like the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Albania and Turkey.
The EU executive is currently working on proposals for a permanent rapid reaction force to fight fires in Europe, with units ready to intervene at short notice.
The BBC's Dominic Hughes in Brussels says as climate change increases the frequency of extreme weather patterns, closer European co-operation on fire-fighting is becoming more pressing.

Planet Earth has been without ice more eons than it's had ice — but not with 6 billion people on the surface
It's a notorious inconvenience for the Greenhousers that data also show carbon dioxide concentrations from the Eocene period, 20 million years before Henry Ford trundled his first model T out of the shop, 300-400 per cent higher than current concentrations.
The Greenhousers deal with other difficulties like the medieval warming period's higher-than-today's temperatures by straightforward chicanery, misrepresenting tree-ring data (themselves an unreliable guide) and claiming the warming was a local, insignificant European affair.
We're warmer now, because today's world is in the thaw following the last Ice Age.
Ice ages correlate with changes in the solar heat we receive, all due to predictable changes in the earth's elliptic orbit round the sun, and in the earth's tilt.
As Hertzberg explains, the cyclical heat effect of all of these variables was worked out in great detail between 1915 and 1940 by the Serbian physicist, Milutin Milankovitch, one of the giants of 20th-century astrophysics.
In past postglacial cycles, as now, the earth's orbit and tilt gives us more and longer summer days between the equinoxes.

Anyone with any sense knows carbon tax is just one more vehicle of control by those who already hold 98% of the world's wealth
Water covers 71 per cent of the surface of the planet.
As compared to the atmosphere, there's at least a hundred times more CO2 in the oceans, dissolved as carbonate.
As the postglacial thaw progresses the oceans warm up, and some of the dissolved carbon emits into the atmosphere, just like fizz in soda water taken out of the fridge.
"So the greenhouse global warming theory has it ass backwards," Hertzberg concludes.
"It is the warming of the earth that is causing the increase of carbon dioxide and not the reverse."
He has recently had vivid confirmation of that conclusion.
Several new papers show that for the last three quarter million years CO2 changes always lag global temperatures by 800 to 2,600 years.
It looks like Poseidon should go hunting for carbon credits.
Trouble is, the human carbon footprint is of zero consequence amid these huge forces and volumes, and that's not even to mention the role of the giant reactor beneath our feet: the earth's increasingly hot molten core.

Greens hail landmark victory in fight to save Amazon rainforests
By Andrew Gumbel in Los Angeles
Published: 26 March 2007

One of the world's largest agribusiness giants was forced to close a soy export terminal in Brazil's Amazon region this weekend, marking a major victory for environmentalists who have argued for years that the plant was built illegally and became a significant cause of rainforest depletion.
Brazilian police and environmental officers swooped on the Cargill terminal in Santarem, a deep-water port in the lower Amazon about 850 miles inland from the Atlantic Ocean.
They said they met no resistance as they set about closing operations.
On Friday, a Brazilian judge ruled that Cargill - a US multinational that posted more than $70bn (£36bn) in revenues last year - had failed to submit a legally required environmental impact assessment when it built the terminal in the first few years of this decade.
It was not the first time the courts had ruled against Cargill on the question, but the company had never previously been forced to suspend its operations.
The Santarem terminal has been the target of a Greenpeace environmental protection campaign from the day it opened in 2003.
A Greenpeace report last year, entitled "Eating Up the Amazon", accused Cargill of being directly or indirectly responsible for slave labour, illegal land grabs and deforestation at a rate of six football pitches per minute.
Greenpeace's Amazon campaign coordinator in Brazil, Paulo Adario, was understandably delighted at the court ruling and closure.
"A big step forward has been taken in enforcing the responsible use of natural resources and bringing greater governance in the Amazon," he said.
Cargill, which argues it is an important engine of economic growth in an impoverished region, said it would appeal the ruling which it said was based on a misunderstanding about who — the state of Para or the Brazilian federal government — needs to sanction environmental impact reports for big projects.

Swiss-flag ship Celerina is loaded with over 50,000 tons of soy for Holland at the port built by Cargill Inc., the Minneapolis-based grain giant and Brazil's largest soy exporter, in Santarem, on the Amazon River, Brazil, May 2, 2006

Federal police and government environmental agents, Saturday March 24, 2007 shut down the port saying the company had failed to provide an environmental impact statement required by law.

Cargill argues that soy production covers only 6 per cent of the Amazon area - a price it believes is worth paying for one of Brazil's key export crops. Brazil is the world's second largest producer after the US.

The Brazilian government appears to agree, and is sponsoring construction of a 1,100-mile roadway leading from Mato Grosso, the country's top soy-growing state, to the Cargill export terminal.

An estimated 20 per cent of the Amazon rainforest has already been destroyed, and about 6,500 square miles more was lost between 2005 and 2006.

That represented a slight slowing in the rate of destruction from the year before - a trend experts attribute to the weakening of soy bean prices and the strengthening of Brazil's currency on world markets.

Much of the world's soya production goes to feed animals living in unspeakable horror in intensive farming compounds.

"When we built the facility, the permits were issued by the state," a Cargill spokeswoman, Lori Johnson, told the Associated Press.
"Since that time the federal prosecutor has said we should have done another kind of environmental assessment, and that is the issue before the courts."
The chief prosecutor in the Cargill case, Felicio Pontes, has sided with Greenpeace in seeing the Santarem terminal as illegal.
"Cargill believed that because they were a powerful multinational, they could disrespect both Brazilian legislation and the environment," he said.
Since the Santarem terminal opened, land prices in the region have jumped 18-fold, prompting many landowners to sell to Cargill and other soy-growing multinationals, and spurring a major leap in soy production.
Millions of acres of rainforest have been turned over to soy bean fields.
The soy is used principally to supply European livestock farms.
