We Need Some Climate Skeptics

by Doug Casey, International Man:

Climate scientists are not prophets. Those who believe them on faith provide no good service to the pursuit of truth.

Those who blame climate change for every storm or forest fire are silly. Equally silly are those who claim that a particularly cold day proves that climate change is a farce.

Fear of environmental calamity has caused human destruction before, such as when Rachel Carson’s book, Silent Spring, led to the banning of the pesticide DDT. As a result of the “success” of the environmentalist movement in banning DDT, an estimated 30-50 million people in Africa—mostly children—died from malaria carried by the renewed growth in the mosquito population. Malaria deaths increased from tens of thousands per year pre-ban, to millions per year post-ban. The story was similar in India. These were preventable deaths that resulted from stoked fears.

Hurricanes Give Americans Taste of Disaster Washington’s Wars Bring to Others – Paul Craig Roberts

by Paul Craig Roberts, via The Burning Platform:

Florida residents from the eastern part of Panama City Beach to Apalachicola now know what a war zone is like. 750,000 people are without power and without water. Thousands of homes and commercial structures no longer exist. Mexico Beach has been more or less wiped off the face of the earth. Many areas are still inaccessible. Many people are still trapped in place because of debris and downed trees across roads.

Families searching for missing family members are at times obstructed by police trying to keep looters and gawkers out of the area and trying to save what little traffic capacity there is for emergency and repair crews. It is difficult to image people so lacking in humanity that they go to loot what little remains of the property of such damaged people.

The U.S. President’s Role in a Time of Devastating Disasters

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, wallstreetonparade:

Today’s Houston Chronicle carries a photo and report of “thousands of piles of Hurricane Harvey wreckage on Houston curbs” still waiting for removal. The devastating flooding from Hurricane Harvey in late August has impacted low income families the hardest with another article in the paper reporting that residents of a public housing complex in Houston “have been asked to pay rent for flooded units deemed uninhabitable even as the mayor has condemned private landlords for similar practices.”

In the Florida Keys, where major devastation occurred when Hurricane Irma hit the area on September 10 as a Category 4 hurricane, the schools remain closed and will begin to reopen on a staggered basis beginning Monday. The Miami Herald’s digital edition today shows a photo of the devastation unleashed on Big Pine Key by Hurricane Irma, which made landfall at Cudjoe Key, approximately 20 miles north of Key West. Monroe County, home to the Keys, estimates that 20 percent or more of the homes in the Keys were badly damaged or destroyed.

As millions of impacted Americans attempted to assist others and rebuild from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, another monster Hurricane hit Puerto Rico yesterday, Hurricane Maria, leaving it darkened and without any municipal electric power whatsoever. The U.S. Territory was still attempting to recover from damage caused by Hurricane Irma, which had brushed the northern side of the island two weeks earlier, when Hurricane Maria hit as a Category 4 hurricane yesterday, the strongest hurricane to make landfall in Puerto Rico since 1932. The extent of the devastation there is still uncertain. The San Juan Daily Star newspaper’s website shows that it was last updated two days ago, on September 19. Last evening, weather officials reported that “catastrophic” flooding was occurring in parts of Puerto Rico.

As Americans were attempting to remove water-logged furniture from their homes, rake up debris in their yards, chain saw uprooted trees, repair roofs or, for the more seriously impacted who had lost their homes in their entirety, to find alternate housing for themselves and their families – along comes a devastating magnitude 7.1 earthquake in Mexico which has thus far left 245 dead in central Mexico, thousands injured, and dozens of flattened buildings with an unknown number of people still waiting to be rescued.

ALTERNATIVE NEWS Ottawa Professor Blasts The US Military For “Owning The Weather” For Military Use

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution:

  • The Facts:Dr. Michel Chossudovsky, who is the University of Ottawa’s Emeritus Professor of Economics and has worked directly with governments on various geopolitical issues has spoken out against weather modification and the long history of its use.
  • Reflect On:Why are we spraying things into our atmosphere without the people being aware of it? Why is it such a secretive issue? Should we not know about it? Why is this topic never brought up in the climate change discussion?

Concrete Nuclear Dome Is LEAKING RADIOACTIVE Waste Into The Ocean

0

by Mac Slavo, SHTFPlan:

The nuclear waste dome on Runit Island northeast of Australia is leaking. The site is pouring nuclear radioactive waste from 43 tests directly into the ocean.

Between 1948 and 1958, the Enewetak Atoll was used by the US government to test 30 megatons of nuclear weapons, which is the equivalent to 2,000 Hiroshima blasts. More than 8,000 people later worked hard to clean up that island, shifting 110,000 cubic yards of radioactive debris into a 30-foot-deep crater, which was later sealed in a concrete dome to prevent contamination.

Paul Griego, who took part in the cleanup and blames the radiation for a host of health problems, said the dome was never fit for the purpose of containing radioactive waste. Although the dome is 16 inches thick, and 350 feet across, Griego says it’s nothing more than a “gigantic radioactive toilet.”

“We were given an impossible task – cleaning up the radioactive fallout from 43 nuclear bombs. When I first arrived, the dome’s blast crater was open to the ocean – it continued to be full of sea water even after it was sealed off from the ocean. During my 10-hour work day, I witnessed the water level in the crater rise and lower as the tide came in and out,” says Griego.

The dome is now weathered by decades of exposure to winds and rain, and the radioactive material inside. It’s feared that rising seas and storms could see all the radioactive material pour into the ocean. “No attempt was made to drain the crater or line it before the radioactive waste was dumped into it. The coral that created the island is porous and the shock from numerous nuclear weapon tests had also fractured the coral,” Griego said. “From the first day forward, the water has flowed out of the lagoon with the tide, creating a gigantic radioactive toilet that is flushed about twice each day into the Pacific Ocean.”

And the storms are only making matters worse. “I believe the dome could be just one typhoon away from a breach,” Griego added. Rama Schneider, who drove radioactive waste from island to island in an amphibious vehicle during the cleanup, said it was no surprise that the dome was failing. “Standing on any island at that atoll is akin to standing inches above sea level – and that was in 1979,” said Schneider.

from goldstockbull:

In the Previous Three Weeks:

  • Gold rose over $1,330.
  • Silver reached $18.00.
  • The DOW almost reached another all-time high.
  • Hurricane Harvey slammed into the Texas coast, flooded Houston, and caused massive damage.
  • Hurricane Irma crashed into Florida and created flooding and huge damage, although a late move west reduced potential destruction.
  • China is preparing a crude oil contract that will allow oil exporters to sell their crude on a Chinese exchange and be paid in yuan, which can be sold on a Chinese exchange for gold. This could be very important for the gold market.
  • The Federal Reserve met and … yada yada yada.
  • North Korea and President Trump exchanged pleasantries in their great distraction game.

 

GOLD:

  • Year 1913: Price of gold:  $20.67 per oz. U.S. national debt $3 billion.
  • Year 2017: Price of gold:  $1,300 per oz. U.S. national debt $20 trillion.

Complaints About Crop Damage Spur Temporary Ban on Dicamba in 2 States

by Julie Fidler, Natural Society:
On July 7, 2017, officials in Arkansas and Missouri enacted a temporary ban on dicamba, the herbicide blamed for vaporizing and damaging crops which have not been genetically engineered to withstand the weedkiller. The Arkansas Plant Board had voted June 23, 2017 to temporarily ban the spraying of dicamba on any crops except pasture land for 120 days. [1]

The newest ban, set to start July 11, 2017, extends the 120-day moratorium.

The bans come as complaints about suspected dicamba drift continue to snowball. More than 130 cases of dicamba drift have already been reported in Missouri this year, eclipsing last year’s totals, which resulted in heavy crop losses for farmers in the Bootheel region of the southeastern part of the state.

Science study: Rising CO2 producing “miracle” re-greening effects across the planet as global tree cover rapidly EXPANDS

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

Climate change myth pushers are scientifically illiterate propagandists who have brainwashed themselves against all scientific reality to somehow believe that carbon dioxide is a poison to plants. In truth, it’s the “greening” molecule for the planet, as I’ve repeatedly explained in multiple climate videos, podcasts and climate articles. Now, new science published in Naturedemonstrates that global tree cover is rapidly expanding across the planet as CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere rise to healthier, pro-tree levels that support forest growth and health.
