coalpowerstation.jpg image Kyoto, Copenhagen, Rio summits go up in Smoke pru, Saturday, Jun 23 2012, 1:31pm
Rio+20 goes the same way -- FAILURE -- as all previous summits on the environment. The overriding singular reason is plain to see; the combined force of financial and corporate self-interest sabotage any hope of environmental pollution reform. The singular cause of failure for all these summits has at least been made plain to the world. Disproportionately wealthy minority elites, at great cost to the environment and global population, relentlessly pursue their own interests, and why shouldn't they? (story and 1 comment and 1 image)

text Study: Renewable sources could supply 80% of U.S. electricity by 2050 Stephen C. Webster via stele, Thursday, Jun 21 2012, 12:10pm
If the U.S simply committed to building out the transmission infrastructure, the Department of Energy (DOE) believes that currently existing renewable energy technology “is more than adequate” to supply up to 80 percent of the nation’s daily electricity use by the year 2050, a new study has found.

Have no doubts regarding which interests Oz governments serve today. Everyone seems to be benefiting from the Oz mining boom except the Australian people! Billions in profits are siphoned off for corporate elites, Transnationals and Banks but precious little goes into necessary services and infrastructure. Substandard Oz health and dental services continue to suffer due to lack of 'available' funds -- a very odd scenario despite the FACT that it is the PEOPLE that legally OWN the nation's natural wealth.

fukushima_radioactive_water.jpg image Fukushima: Thousands of Tonnes of Radioactive water pour into the Pacific Daily blogger via radium, Friday, Jun 1 2012, 11:48pm
Japan has given up attempting to contain the billions of litres of radioactive water used to cool stricken Daiichi reactors at Fukushima; with international approval the highly polluted water has been allowed to flow directly into the Pacific Ocean since the time the initial disaster struck. Consider the amount already leaked, then consider the amount yet to be dumped into the Pacific, as there is no easy method available to stabilise these stricken reactors. Fukushima is an international disaster in progress. (story and 1 comment and 1 image)

text Oz Carbon Tax - no effect whatsoever on Global Emissions or Climate! rae, Friday, May 25 2012, 1:11pm
It is clear that the banker-corporate designed Carbon Tax that Juliar Gillard dutifully imposed on the people of Australia will have no effect whatsoever on global emissions or climate. But it will provide a huge bounty for banks and government with increased costs across the board for average Aussies.

A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by Friends of the Earth (FoE), Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR), and the Nuclear Information and Resource Center (NIRS) has unearthed a shocking series of new evidence proving a deliberate, global cover-up of the true severity of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. And the unfortunate reality is that the mainstream media continues to blatantly ignore this colossal scandal.

text Eugenicist Alert! Drastic Reduction of Global Population Required by Ruling Elites John Vidal via stan, Thursday, Apr 26 2012, 10:20pm
Prior warning has been given numerous times on this site now the Corporate media is running a most revealing story on the "need" to "drastically reduce the global population." Have no illusions, we write for the historical record not for the useless slaves that are led bleating like sheep to the slaughter.

Regardless of accompanying subterfuges, when they release their lab created DEADLY human bird flu virus, go get 'em, you useless, gutless, moron slaves -- LOL! [THEY have a vaccine which they will never release to the masses, be aware of Big Pharma fakes and take your chances!]

bee_kills.jpg image Unprecedented fungal threats to ecosystem, health and food supply research report via gan, Saturday, Apr 14 2012, 10:43am
"The past two decades have seen an increasing number of virulent infectious diseases in natural populations and managed landscapes. In both animals and plants, an unprecedented number of fungal and fungal-like diseases have recently caused some of the most severe die-offs and extinctions ever witnessed in wild species, and are jeopardizing food security. Human activity is intensifying fungal disease dispersal by modifying natural environments and thus creating new opportunities for evolution. We argue that nascent fungal infections will cause increasing attrition of biodiversity, with wider implications for human and ecosystem health, unless steps are taken to tighten biosecurity worldwide." -- Nature (story and 1 image)

John D Rockefeller, pioneer eugenicist and visionary mass murderer imagePDF Document 'Limits to Growth' Warning confirmed in latest Study dwayne, Sunday, Apr 8 2012, 1:11am
A recent study by Australian CSIRO scientist, Graham Turner, confirms that the world 'end game' scenario projected by an earlier (1972) MIT study is not only accurate but is ahead of schedule. The original study was commissioned by the Rockefellers and other eugenicists at the time. It verifies the end of the world as we know it if today's levels of consumption/'growth' are not drastically curtailed. (story and 2 images and 3 attached files)

Clive Palmer image Oz Mining Magnate Accuses CIA of Subverting Local Coal Industry styx, Tuesday, Mar 20 2012, 1:51am
In a refreshing conspiratorial twist, Oz mining multi-billionaire, Clive Palmer, has accused Greens leader, Bob 'poop pusher' Brown -- who is on record for supporting a 'One World Government' -- of treason and colluding with a foreign power (CIA) to undermine the local coal industry. Well, I'll be darned, it just goes to show that local Corporatist pigs want the entire trough for themselves. If I hadn't read it in the Oz mass media I would have thought it another whacko conspiracy theory, but Palmer may have something, he is certainly wealthy enough to dig for the facts. I guess the CIA will just have to follow procedure and arrange for Palmer to choke on a ham sandwich! (story and 4 comments and 3 images)

War is NOT a priority, what is it good for, NOTHIN' ?

It serves minority criminal elites ONLY, at great cost to the planet and innocent human lives. It is TIME the people of the GLOBE learned that UNITY and friendly relations offer the only hope for future survival. AMERICA'S insatiable greed, permanent war doctrine and divisive ways are anathema to every living thing in this UNIVERSE -- make NO mistake, the plague on the planet that is indefinite detention, civilian killing, AMERICA must be ELIMINATED if the world hopes to live in peace, freedom and harmony.

It seems scientists are concerned over the Doomsday clock gaining another minute to midnight (oblivion time). According to 'concerned' scientists it is now FIVE minutes to midnight! Now consider runaway climate change, massive extinctions, Corporate pollution at all time high, water table pollution with fracking and the mining of scarce arable land, to mention only a few doomsday scenarios and it makes you wonder who set the time?

In stark contrast to the nefarious purposes to which the US military and the civilian murdering CIA deploy UAV Drone technology, we are pleased to report that the anti-whaling ship, Sea Shepherd, is utilising long range surveillance Drones to thwart Japanese whaling in our Southern Oceans. We should never forget that citizens developed all these new technologies and that talentless commercial and military organisations have utilised them for destructive purposes. (story and 1 image)
