Corrective Climate Change Ahead

Global greenhouse gas emissions during the last ten years have been the highest in Human History according to a leaked report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Without drastic action, ‘temperatures will increase by 4 to 5 centigrade that could reap devastating effects on the planet’ they said. Personally I don’t see the global population being able to respond quickly enough. That said, I am an optimist, because I believe in realignment; in that the earth has a resilient, self-regulating eco-system. When challenged in this way, she may take a little time, but make no mistake, she will respond.

Is global warming just a giant natural fluctuation?

Is global warming just a giant natural fluctuation?

An analysis of temperature data since 1500 all but rules out the possibility that global warming in the industrial era is just a natural fluctuation in the earth’s climate, according to a new study by McGill University physics professor Shaun Lovejoy. The study, published online April 6 in the journal Climate Dynamics, represents a new approach to the question of whether global warming in the industrial era has been caused largely by man-made emissions from the burning of fossil fuels. Rather than using complex computer models to estimate the effects of greenhouse-gas emissions, Lovejoy examines historical data to assess the competing hypothesis: that warming over the past century is due to natural long-term variations in temperature.

Government Agencies Battle Over Adverse Impact of Cell Tower Radiation on Wildlife

The dangers to people of Wi-Fi and the electromagnetic radiation emitted from cell phones and various “smart” devices are quickly becoming a non-debatable. There is also mounting evidence that these dangers extend to wildlife as cell towers are becoming more prevalent, deeper into previously non-explored areas. This potential threat to wildlife appears to be such that it has sparked an attack by the Department of the Interior against the FCC for what they claim are outdated standards.

New Video Exposes Smart Meter Tyranny

Despite assurances from “authorities,” the evidence is mounting that not only are Smart Meters an economic fraud and an invasion of privacy, they are a serious health hazard. In fact, a major physicians group has gone on record imploring utility companies for the right to opt-out based on pre-existing health conditions and/or specific sensitivity to smart meters’ RF microwave radiation and dirty electricity that can trigger cancer and heart disease among a host of other debilitating maladies.

Renewable Energy From Rivers and Lakes Could Replace Gas In Homes

Millions of homes across the UK could be heated using a carbon-free technology that draws energy from rivers and lakes in a revolutionary system that could reduce household bills by 20 per cent. In the first system of its kind in the UK, a heat pump in the Thames will provide hot water for radiators, showers and taps in nearly 150 homes and a 140-room hotel and conference center in south London, saving 500 tons of carbon emissions from being released every year into the atmosphere.

You don’t need much, a window sill will do, or a balcony that gets some sun. But if you have some spare space in your garden, what about this amazing idea – the ‘underground greenhouse’ – for all year round growing…
