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.

Texas Grid Operator: ‘Frozen Wind Turbines Caused Power Outages’

from 21st Century Wire:

As large regions in the United States suffer record-breaking freezes, some states, like Texas, have been unable to provide power and heating to residents. Many are left wondering: how did this happen?

As expected, the issue has become politicized. Keen to protect the party’s Green New Deal and ‘climate crisis’ narratives, Biden surrogates and climate change campaigners are scrambling on mainstream media, and on social media, in an effort to try and control the narrative and divert the attention away from the actual cause of the grid’s failure: the collapse of the state’s so-called ‘sustainable’ green energy initiative.

Lake Mead is less than 150 feet away from becoming a “dead pool,” making much of the Southwestern U.S. uninhabitable

by Ethan Huff, Natural News:

America’s largest reservoir is drying up fast, which could make states like Nevada, Arizona and California, and parts of Mexico, no longer livable in the not-too-distant future.

Lake Mead, which generates just under 40 percent of Las Vegas’ power supply via the Hoover Dam, currently sits at just under 1,044 feet. It is less than 150 feet away from becoming a “dead pool,” meaning no more water flowing through the Hoover Dam and no more electricity or water for every Southwestern city that relies on this resource for sustenance.

Not a conspiracy theory: Congressional bill HR 2977 sought to ban chemtrails as a space weapon

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

If you search for “chemtrails” in Wikipedia, you won’t find an entry on chemtrails. Instead, you are directed to the entry, “Chemtrail conspiracy theory,” which begins:

The chemtrail conspiracy theory is based on the erroneous belief that long-lasting condensation trails are “chemtrails” consisting of chemical or biological agents left in the sky by high-flying aircraft, sprayed for nefarious purposes undisclosed to the general public.

If chemtrails are merely a figment of imagination by loony, tinfoil hat-wearing conspiracy theorists, why are chemtrails mentioned in a Congressional bill, HR 2977 – Space Preservation Act of 2001?

This is an important story, one which bears close watching in my opinion.  It was spotted and shared by V.T., a frequent contributor of “bloggable articles” here, and it concerns the plans of a geothermal energy company to use a new technology to burrow farther into the Earth than ever before:

November Snow In Texas? Experts Warn Decreased Solar Activity Will Shatter All Global Climate Models

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

Our sun has been behaving very strangely, and this unusual behavior is really starting to affect our weather patterns.  There have been virtually no sunspots in 2018 as solar activity has dropped to alarmingly low levels.  As a result, our atmosphere has been cooling and shrinking, and experts are warning that we are heading for a bitterly, bitterly cold winter.  And even though the official start of winter is well over a month away, winter weather is already sweeping the nation.  As you will see below, a giant winter storm is about to slam into the east coast, but what is happening in Texas is even more unnerving.  On Wednesday morning, the temperature in San Antonio plummeted to just 23 degrees, and that absolutely shattered the old record


by Joseph P. Farrell, Giza Death Star:

My email inbox was so stuffed this past week that it was very difficult to decide what to blog about. Indeed, I’ve already done one blog this week on two different articles submitted by two different people, because I thought those articles might have been related.

Today is the same: we have two different articles submitted by two different people that might be related, and in my “high octane speculation methodology” I am going to assume that they are.

Firstly, we have the following article submitted by S.D. about a NOTAM (Notice to Airmen) recently issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA):

Some SF restaurants now charging voluntary fee to fight climate change

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

What a hoax.

From YahooA handful of restaurants in San Francisco have opted in to a program that supports soil health and fights climate change — by making their customers’ meals a bit more expensive.

Bay Area restaurants that choose to participate in the state’s new Restore California program are adding a 1 percent surcharge on diners’ checks to support the initiative starting this month, according to a news release from Zero Foodprint, a nonprofit working with state agencies on the program.

Nestlé Plans to Plunder 1.1M Gallons a Day from Florida Natural Springs

by Erin Elizabeth, Health Nut News:

Nestlé Waters’ is at it again, wanting to take publicly owned water and sell it back to the public. Their proposal to take 1.1 million gallons per day from Florida’s Ginnie Springs has drawn a backlash from conservationists.

Ginnie Springs sits in the Santa Fe River and serves as a home for several species of turtles that nest on the river’s banks. Conservationists and Environmental groups say the river is too fragile to support Nestlé’s plans. The river is already listed as “in recovery” by the Suwannee River water management district after years of over-pumping, according to the Guardian.

Sorry, climate change fanatics: Turns out, Greenland’s glaciers are actually growing

by Vicki Batts, Natural News:

If you buy into the climate change narrative, you might think that Earth’s glaciers are melting. And if you buy into total climate insanity, you might even think that the melting glaciers are one day going to flood most of the planet. But the latest research shows that Jakobshavn, once the fastest-melting glacier on Earth, is now growing. No longer receding inland, new measurements show that Jakobshavn’s ice is thickening and advancing towards the ocean.

Experts say that the increasing size of Jakobshavn is due to cooler water temperatures in the area — and now believe that cycling between warmer and colder waters may be part of the region’s normal climate pattern.
