NEW DEVICE CAN GENERATE RENEWABLE ENERGY ‘OUT OF THIN AIR’

from The Waking Times:

Imagine painting your home with a special paint that also powers your lights using renewable energy drawn from the air.

That might sound too good to be true, but researchers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst think it could be one of many future uses for a new technology they have developed — a device called the Air-gen that can, as its name suggests, generate electricity from moisture in the air.

“We are literally making electricity out of thin air,” Amherst electrical engineer Jun Yao explained in a university press release. “The Air-gen generates clean energy 24/7.”

10 Plagues That Are Hitting Our Planet Simultaneously

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

All of a sudden, really crazy things are starting to happen all over the world.  Giant swarms of locusts are absolutely devastating entire regions, extremely unusual storms are confounding meteorologists, earthquake and volcanic activity are both on the rise, and five very dangerous diseases are sweeping across the globe.  So far in 2020, it has just been one thing after another, and many are speculating about what could be ahead if events continue to escalate.  The other day my wife mentioned that one of her friends suggested that I should put together a list of all the weird stuff that has been taking place, and so that is what I have decided to do.  The following is a list of 10 plagues that are hitting our planet simultaneously…

Genetically Modified Seeds: Conceived as a Weapon

by Larry Romanoff, Lew Rockwell:

Read Part I and Part II.

GM seeds and GM food carry great risks for all nations, so much so that for many reasons it is probably imperative these foods be banned outright. This subject is too large to be discussed here, but one aspect requires brief notice. If we were to ask about the origin of GM seeds, how the idea was conceived and developed, who did the research and who provided the funding, how would we reply? We might reasonably suggest that perhaps the concept originated in the Biology or Agricultural Department of some university, or that a government lab doing research on food supplies might have conceived and pursued the idea. Or, we might suggest a private company in the agricultural field was looking for more productive varieties of grains and stumbled on this process.

Trump’s Budget: More Warfare, Slightly Less Welfare

by Ron Paul, Ron Paul Institute:

Listening to the howls from Democrats and the applause from Republicans, one would think President Trump’s proposed fiscal year 2021 budget is a radical assault on the welfare state. The truth is the budget contains some minor spending cuts, most of which are not even real cuts. Instead they are reductions in the “projected rate of growth.” This is equivalent of saying you are sticking to your diet because you ate five chocolate chip cookies when you wanted to eat ten.

COVID-19 Pandemic: The Complacent Are Clueless

by Charles Hugh Smith, Of Two Minds:

The eventual price of substituting magical thinking and survivorship bias for actual evidence will be far higher than the complacent realize.

Here’s a sampling of complacent assertions being made about the COVID-19 virus as if they were certitudes:

It’s no worse than a bad cold.

It’s less deadly than a normal flu.

You can’t catch it unless you’re in sustained close contact with a carrier.

Shocking New Study Says The Coronavirus “Could Impact More Than 5 Million Businesses Worldwide”

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

When was the last time that we witnessed a disaster that severely disrupted the supply chains of over 5 million companies around the globe simultaneously?  Looking back over the past couple of decades, I can’t think of one.  In recent days I have written a number of articles about the economic impact of this coronavirus outbreak, and what we have seen so far could be just the beginning.  With each additional week that much of the Chinese economy remains at a virtual standstill, things are going to get even worse.  Today, China accounts for approximately 20 percent of global GDP, but that doesn’t tell the entire story.  At this point the rest of the world has become so dependent on Chinese exports that any sort of an extended shutdown for Chinese manufacturing would be a complete and utter nightmare for global supply chains.  In fact, a brand new study that was just released by Dun & Bradstreet has concluded that the coronavirus outbreak in China “could impact more than 5 million businesses worldwide”
