A number of geophysicists and others have predicted that the earth will undergo drastic geological upheaval in this period. Recent quakes in New Zealand signal events on opposite side of Pacific, as is the usual case with these movements.

According to predictions, Etna and Pele are the main indicators. Soothsayers and scientists seem to agree that we are in for a 'big one' and it ain't gonna be pleasant. Drastic pole shift scenarios are also predicted, in which case entire continents could be flooded overnight. Apparently the earth undergoes these 'cleansing periods' when man's perversity gets out of hand. If that is the case it's gonna be a rough ride. [Inaction from the people brings its own reward!]

text Global Food Insecurity spawns ... Thandi Winston via quill, Thursday, Feb 10 2011, 6:54am
DAKAR, Feb 9 (TerraViva) – Some are calling it the second scramble for Africa – the growing appetite of external interests in securing huge tracts of land in Africa, displacing the small-scale farmers who form the backbone of the continent’s own food security.The issue has been one of the main talking points at this year’s World Social Forum. And whilst there are no immediate answers, activists are warning about its effects on African people’s livelihoods and food security.

Al 'corporatist' Gore and David 'sachs' Blood -- circus! image Al Gore's Role in the Goldman Sachs Carbon Con Richard Pollock via baz, Sunday, Jan 2 2011, 7:42pm
Major Corporate Polluters must be penalised in order to stem the flow of poisons into the environment and as we are aware Corporations PATHOLOGICALLY avoid additional costs. WE must therefore exercise constant VIGILANCE in order to prevent polluters avoiding or shifting responsibility to the public.

The Corporate sector makes astronomical PROFITS that are easily able to absorb the additional cost of cleaner energy production. The Corporations have for far too long avoided safety and low pollution protocols, which decease their profits. It is time that their ill gotten gains were utilised for compensation, reparation and clean energy. Whether or not those additional costs result in low profits is not an issue, as it is the planet and life on earth at stake.

The Corporations must not be allowed to AVOID RESPONSIBILITY and SHIFT the BLAME and COSTS of THEIR polluting onto others. Goldman Sachs (and friends) would have the public pay for their mistakes while continuing to extract profits. The following article reveals the sordid machinations behind the plan to create enormous profits from Carbon Trading.

text Fireblight: A Matter of Backbone and Sovereignty happy jack, Monday, Nov 29 2010, 9:01pm
A foreign organisation, the World Trade Organisation (WTO) is demanding that Australia open its quarantine doors to the possibility of fireblight disease from imported New Zealand apples. Oz has enforced a ban on NZ apples for decades and as we are aware our local industry is not only able to supply local markets but exports volumes to Asia and other nations. So why the imposition from a foreign 'authority' telling us what to do with our crucial food crops – the answer lies somewhere between a jelly fish and servile mammals without backbones.

First the bees now bats have succumbed to the horrors of pollution and genetic tampering with our food crops. Nevertheless, we allow Monsanto and a host of Chemical Corporations to continue to turn a profit!

The typically short term 'solution' Corporations are pursuing is to purchase unpolluted and untampered with arable land offshore in poorer nations and other food producing nations stupid enough (Australia) to surrender their prized fertile lands to Transnational Corporations -- that, by nature, would eventually see all viable ecologies replicating the destruction which is occurring in the USA.

Have we got the picture yet, regarding off-shore oil platforms and their obvious lack of contingency plans in the event of disastrous spills? Oz had a catastrophic explosion and fire on an off-shore rig that spilled thousands of tonnes of oil into pristine seas off Western Australia -- the State that is run by Transnational mining and gas/oil Corporations.

Predictably, the Copenhagen Climate 'Accord' ended in FAILURE; participants were more concerned with national rather than planetary issues.

Participating representatives avoided binding agreements favouring instead the SHORT TERM ECONOMIC INTERESTS of their respective nations -- and therein lies the problem! (story and 1 comment and 1 image)

K. Rudd image Kevin Rudd’s Last Stand at ‘Little Big’ Copenhagen bluey, Thursday, Dec 17 2009, 8:59pm
One cannot help but draw parallels between the arrogance, foolhardiness and NARCISSISM of General George Armstrong Custer and his modern blonde counterpart, Kevin ‘photo-op’ Rudd. Both men share similar personality flaws, not the least being pathological narcissism, which also explains the one-man-band attitude of both men AND of course defines their greatest weakness and the inevitable cause of their ignominious FALL from grace.

That's their boy -- Rudd dutifully performing for the Yanks image ETS PM, Kevin Rudd, exposed as Corporate Lackey and LIAR AAP wire via fleet, Thursday, Dec 3 2009, 12:34am
It is no secret today that Capitalism’s last, desperate pitch to survive depends on (grossly unfair) Carbon Trading/Emission Schemes. Not surprisingly the Corporate world has dispatched their LACKEY politicians to implement Carbon Trading schemes in the respective nations in which they hold sway. However, schemes that disadvantage the average person with CRUSHING additional TAXES while COMPENSATING Industry/Big Business for polluting, may prove a very hard sell to say the least – one national leader EXPOSED, who’s next?

All attempts by puppet governments to implement carbon trading (ETS) are doomed to failure for a very simple reason; their ‘solution' is the problem! Allow me to clarify – every man and his dog is aware that Criminal Corporatists are responsible for the collapse of the global economy and that laissez-faire Capitalism is the ideological cause of all our current woes. YET the imbeciles and CRIMINALS that perpetrated this global economic horror desire to ‘trade’ -- MAKE MONEY -- from pollution via Carbon Trading! The solution is the problem, do you get it now?
