The Anthropocene Is Here: Humanity Has Pushed Earth Into a New Epoch

The Anthropocene Is Here: Humanity Has Pushed Earth Into a New Epoch | Global politics | Scoop.it
The Anthropocene Epoch has begun, according to a group of experts assembled at the International Geological Congress in Cape Town, South Africa this week.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Changes to the Earth system that characterize the potential Anthropocene Epoch include marked acceleration to rates of erosion and sedimentation; large-scale chemical perturbations to the cycles of carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, and other elements; the inception of significant change to global climate and sea level; and biotic changes such as unprecedented levels of species invasions across the Earth. Many of these changes are geologically long-lasting, and some are effectively irreversible.

US Slams Turkish Bombing Of American Coalition Partners As "Unacceptable And A Source Of Deep Concern" | Zero Hedge

US Slams Turkish Bombing Of American Coalition Partners As "Unacceptable And A Source Of Deep Concern" | Zero Hedge | Global politics | Scoop.it
Things are turning increasingly sour for the US, which is barely able to keep track of which feuding factions it supports in the escalating Syrian war.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
So, less than a week after Biden's attempt to appease Erdogan, earlier today the United States, now finding itself in the paradoxical position of directly supporting two warring factions, criticized clashes between Turkish forces and some opposition groups in northern Syria as "unacceptable," calling on all armed actors in the fighting to stand down and focus on battling ISIS.

A Brain-damaged US President with Finger on the Nuclear Button? | New Eastern Outlook

A Brain-damaged US President with Finger on the Nuclear Button? | New Eastern Outlook | Global politics | Scoop.it
Hillary Rodham Clinton seems to surround herself with more scandals than you can shake a stick at, as we said when I was growing up in Texas. We had the Mena, Arkansas scandals when her husband, Bubba, otherwise known as William…
Enrique Ferro's insight:
A candidate for public office, especially the highest office in the nation is no longer an ordinary private person. They have a responsibility to be open about their true medical condition. So far, Hillary Clinton has refused. Not only is it irresponsible, it is alarming, truly scary. The mainstream liberal USA media is not touching the issues in any serious way. We have a right to access to a complete and unbiased analysis of her health and medical treatment. She is a candidate for US President, the one with the finger on the nuclear button. http://journal-neo.org/2016/08/24/a-brain-damaged-us-president-with-finger-on-the-nuclear-button/

It Takes a Ruling-Class Village to Staff the White House

It Takes a Ruling-Class Village to Staff the White House | Global politics | Scoop.it
A recurrent theme in major speeches given last month at the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia held that Democrats like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton look to “we the people” instead of rich, powerful and purportedly great individuals like Donald Trump to guide the United States. Repeating a prominent refrain in Obama’s 2008 campaign, top Democrats said the operative words for Americans aren’t “I” and “me” but rather “we” and “us,” as in “si se puede” (“yes we can”)—a chant repeated during Tim Kaine’s and Obama’s speeches.

If You Want to Celebrate a "Landslide" Clinton Victory, Don't Call Me

If You Want to Celebrate a "Landslide" Clinton Victory, Don't Call Me | Global politics | Scoop.it
I got a call from a friend in Washington who knows more about political polling than anyone in America. He was almost breathless with excitement.“It’s gonna be a landslide,” he said.“In which direction?” I joked.“Hillary’s going to win in places we haven’t won in years – Georgia, Nevada, Arizona. She’ll take the entire West, the whole East Coast. Trump is sinking like a stone.”“So do we get the Senate back?”“You bet.”“Sixty votes?”“No, but a nice majority.”“And the House?”

News media corruption: Major warhawk calls for peace and the US news media ignores him | Global politics | Scoop.it
TV about what's REALLY going on.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Zbigniew Brzezinski, the man who has advised US presidents for over 40 years... The man who preached that the US should use violence to dominate the world... The man who was cheerleader to Islamic extremists in Afghanistan in the 70s and 80s... ...has changed his tune. And now - for the first time in his life - the US news media is not interested in what he has to say.
This proves the war party (Hillary  Neocons) control the media...
