Iceland Dam Project Plays Dice With Nature, And Loses

Iceland Dam Project Plays Dice With Nature, And Loses | THE POWERS THAT BE | Scoop.it

April 22, 2013 Inter Press Service

Since the controversial Karahnjukar dam in East Iceland was brought into operation in 2006, conditions in the downstream Lagarfljot lake have become much worse, according to information gathered...

The salmon stock has virtually disappeared and the trout population has decreased by 80 percent. The colour of the lake has changed and become much darker due to all the sediment and suspended sediment emanating from the glacial river that now runs into the lake. The capacity for photosynthesis by algae and other plants has decreased as so little light penetrates due to the sediments in the lake. And the plant biota as a whole has declined.

Besides the decline in the fish population, some birds are also being affected, both because there is less for them to eat and because their habitats are being destroyed... http://www.ipsnews.net/2013/04/iceland-project-plays-dice-with-nature-and-loses/

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Thousands of rivers have disappeared in India. Irrigation projects, dams, highways cutting across eco-systems, deforestation, and thoughtless Government planning are essentially responsible for the situation.

 

If we intervene now to reverse the the situation it'd take at least 10-12 years to restore ecosystem health to what they were 50 years ago. But we all must intervene.

The Vineyard of the Saker: August 29th 15:35 UTC/ZULU Ukrainian SITREP

The Vineyard of the Saker: August 29th 15:35 UTC/ZULU Ukrainian SITREP | THE POWERS THAT BE | Scoop.it
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Guys, read what Herbert E. Meyer, former Special Assistant to the Director of Central Intelligence and Vice Chairman of the CIA’s National Intelligence Council during the Reagan Administration, for American Thinker and modestly entitled "How to Solve the Putin Problem"  and he says,

 

"Since subtlety doesn’t work with Russians, the president and his European counterparts should also make absolutely clear that we have no interest whatever in how these people (the Russian oligarchs) solve their Putin problem. If they can talk good old Vladimir into leaving the Kremlin with full military honors and a 21-gun salute -- that would be fine with us. If Putin is too too stubborn to acknowledge that his career is over, and the only way to get him out of the Kremlin is feet-first, with a bullet hole in the back of his head -- that would also be okay with us.

Nor would we object to a bit of poetic justice.... For instance, if the next time Putin’s flying back to Moscow from yet another visit with his good friends in Cuba, or Venezuela, or Iran, his airplane gets blasted out of the sky by some murky para-military group that somehow, inexplicably, got its hands on a surface-to-air missile"

 

Read every word. Is this an officer of world's leading power or some caporegime of the bankster mafia?

"The Islamic militant group ISIS, formerly known as Al-Qaeda in Iraq, and recently rebranded as the so called Islamic State, is the stuff of nightmares.

Former British Ambassador to Uzbekistan Says UK Rogue State, Danger to World

Former British Ambassador to Uzbekistan Says UK Rogue State, Danger to World | THE POWERS THAT BE | Scoop.it
The United Kingdom as a rogue state and a danger to the world, a former British Ambassador to Uzbekistan Craig Murray said.
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

An ambassador of Britain saying these lines:

(1) “I think it is impossible to be proud of the United Kingdom"

(2) "The British Government is deeply, deeply immoral."

(3) "a rogue state and a state prepared to go to war to make a few people wealthy"

(4) "“When I first became a British Ambassador and first went out in my own flag car with the Union Jack flying on the front I had a lump in my throat. It was a proud moment for me. It was only six months after that I discovered that in the country where I was Ambassador we and the Americans were shipping people in order for them to be tortured. Some of them were tortured to death,” Murray added.

READ THIS. The Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain is a rogue state and our money, looted from India made them what they are today. Their ruling class is worse than the Nazis. Their middle class typical pimps of the ruling class, which even Karl Marx found out and wrote about. And the lower middle classes even worse. They are dregs. Only people you will find friendly in Britain are the workers and farmers. Simple folks who want to live in peace.

Note this line, " President Barack Obama said he had spoken to German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday and the two agreed that Russia was "responsible" for the escalating violence in eastern Ukraine. So, (a) Barak [Barry Soetoro] spoke with Angela Merkel and (b) Merkel and Barry agreed that Russia is the aggressor escalating violence. Either Barry Barak Obomba is a liar, or Merkel is a two timer or the news agency Yahoo-Finance is a liar. Or all three are liars. Decide for yourself.

On course for Holocaust II…..? - Alan Hart | THE POWERS THAT BE | Scoop.it
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

'What the world wants from Israel’s Jews and Jews everywhere is an acknowledgement that a terrible wrong was done to the Palestinians by Zionism in the name of all Jews and that the wrong must be righted', says Alan Hart. The problem with Jews is that they been so thoroughly brainwashed that the younger generation believes, almost like a religion, that they are a superior race and that Zionism must prevail. This arrogance has created a global rejection of what Israel stand for. We can differentiate between Zionism and simple yearning for a separate state or Jewish nationalism. But the two notions are now conflated as far as the common man in the street is concerned. Yes, Israel is a compulsive war criminal.

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

THE DUTCH PEOPLE ARE WAKING UP. This is a good sign. To say sorry to Vladimir Putin and apologise to the Russian people is the least they can do but a good start. Full transcript:

Dear  Mr.  President  Putin,

Please  accept  our  apologies  on  behalf  of  a  great  many  people  here  in  the  Netherlands for our Government  and  our  Media.  The  facts  concerning  MH17  are  twisted  to  defame  you  and your  country. We  are  powerless  onlookers,  as  we  witness  how  the  Western  Nations,  led  by  the  United States,  accuse  Russia  of  crimes  they  commit  themselves  more  than  anybody  else.  We  reject the  double  standards  that  are  used  for  Russia  and  the  West.  In  our  societies,  sufficient evidence  is  required  for  a  conviction.  The  way  you  and  your  Nation  are  convicted  for ‘crimes’  without  evidence,  is  ruthless  and  despicable. You  have  saved  us  from  a  conflict  in  Syria  that  could  have  escalated  into  a  World  War.  The mass  killing  of  innocent  Syrian  civilians  through  gassing  by  ‘Al-­‐Qaeda’  terrorists,  trained and  armed  by  the  US  and  paid  for  by  Saudi  Arabia,  was  blamed  on  Assad.  In  doing  so,  the West  hoped  public  opinion  would  turn  against  Assad,  paving  the  way  for  an  attack  on Syria. Not  long  after  this,  Western  forces  have  built  up,  trained  and  armed  an  ‘opposition’  in  the Ukraine,  to  prepare  a  coup  against  the  legitimate  Government  in  Kiev.  The  putschists taking  over  were  quickly  recognized  by  Western  Governments.  They  were  provided  with loans  from  our  tax  money  to  prop  their  new  Government  up. The  people  of  the  Crimea  did  not  agree  with  this  and  showed  this  with  peaceful demonstrations.  Anonymous  snipers  and  violence  by  Ukrainian  troops  turned  these demonstrations  into  demands  for  independence  from  Kiev.  Whether  you  support  these separatist  movements  is  immaterial,  considering  the  blatant  Imperialism  of  the  West. Russia  is  wrongly  accused,  without  evidence  or  investigation,  of  delivering  the  weapons systems  that  allegedly  brought  down  MH17.  For  this  reason  Western  Governments  claim

they  have  a  right  to  economically  pressure  Russia. We,  awake  citizens  of  the  West,  who  see  the  lies  and  machinations  of  our  Governments, wish  to  offer  you  our  apologies  for  what  is  done  in  our  name. It’s  unfortunately  true,  that  our  media  have  lost  all  independence  and  are  just  mouthpieces for  the  Powers  that  Be.  Because  of  this,  Western  people  tend  to  have  a  warped  view  of reality  and  are  unable  to  hold  their  politicians  to  account. Our  hopes  are  focused  on  your  wisdom.  We  want  Peace.  We  see  that  Western  Governments do  not  serve  the  people  but  are  working  towards  a  New  World  Order.  The  destruction  of sovereign  nations  and  the  killing  of  millions  of  innocent  people  is,  seemingly,  a  price  worth paying  for  them,  to  achieve  this  goal.

We,  the  people  of  the  Netherlands,  want  Peace  and  Justice,  also  for  and  with  Russia.

We  hope  to  make  clear  that  the  Dutch  Government  speaks  for  itself  only.  We  pray our efforts  will  help  to  diffuse  the  rising  tensions  between  our  Nations.

Sincerely,

Professor  Cees  Hamelink

China, Russia Fight Terror in Biggest Central Asian Army Drill - The Jakarta Globe

China, Russia Fight Terror in Biggest Central Asian Army Drill - The Jakarta Globe | THE POWERS THAT BE | Scoop.it
More than 7,000 troops from China, Russia and four central Asia countries have gathered in Inner Mongolia for their biggest joint drills to fight terrorists.
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

PREPARING TO FIGHT THE TERRORISTS BEHIND THE TERRORISTS. It's interesting that it has taken nearly 25 years for three countries to come together in history's most logical economic alliance. Russia, China and India together constitute the largest productive economic block with a standing army of over 4.5 million. On the other hand, world's no. 1 economic and military power -USA- has largely a destructive war economy. Together with UK and Israel, in the past 15 years alone they have destroyed a dozen countries. Most importantly, not one country trusts their leaders. That trust deficit is a huge strategic weakness.

The Psychospiritual Electrochemical War on Humanity - Zen Gardner

The Psychospiritual Electrochemical War on Humanity - Zen Gardner | THE POWERS THAT BE | Scoop.it
When a virus attacks an organism, anti-bodies are sent to destroy that threat. There's no dealing with it except elimination, or the organism's very existence is in danger.
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

The writer's line of thinking is somewhat akin to the way I look at things, for example the Gaza genocide. He uses terms like 'the outright wicked genocidal nature of supremacist Zionism'  and then a key sentence, 'Some are born with it, others are indoctrinated into this spiritual possession, and multitudes are now infected with it. Most can be delivered from this almost hypnotic spiritual entrainment but there are those who are clear and present dangers to humanity who can no longer be tolerated on our planet. Coexistence is not on their agenda."  They are what Dr Cleckley called psychopaths back in the 1940s. A new phrase was coined by Kurt Vonnegut: 'sociopaths.' A psychopath kills a few, often a serial murder, leaving bits and pieces of evidence for the people to 'identify who and to fear him. Sociopaths kill entire societies, events that can only be called serial genocides, and deliberately leave evidences openly for the rest of the world to see and fear them. In essence they are cowards and they must be eliminated.

It is crucial to know what big business is doing and is planning to do with our drinking water.

Efren Gallardo's curator insight, March 4, 2:03 PM

in order to sell and make money off from water, you have to own water. since the population is growing water is becoming scarce. the nestle corporation owns more than 70% of bottled water brand.

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Forget Mearsheimer, he can say his piece anywhere he feels like. These rogues are unimpressive but in the news. If you guys think that BRICS and SCO have a future, note that the WEST, the ruling class of US +UK + Israel+ FRANCE+ GERMANY+ ITALY, let us call them the European Elite have done the world in. If we need a permanent peace, we need a permanent solution. Not the spurious 6 million Jews but just 600 rogue families. Call it bloodlines, if you wish.

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

MR. PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS   ...WALL STREET FUNDED BOLSHEVIKS

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PaFklTLNy8c

***********************************************************************

Paul Craig Roberts [PCR] is an apologist, defending his time with Reagan and decisions that that Reagan took. Far more honest was Reagan's young Finance Secretary who saw through the Reagonomics and his cockeyed, Rambo bullshit. That bastard, moron, like most US Presidents are, thought Nicaragua is a threat to US National Security. Has PCR ever said that that was BS?

***********************************************************************

Leninists running DC? What crap is that? I hope PCR knows Marxism, Leninism and Trotskyism. And knows the difference. Engels had a different theory as well. In what context PCR is saying that the US is moving towards Leninism? Does the US Government work on any philosophy of humanism? "bomb and grab" ...exactly the British Imperialist policy. "Kill and steal"...exactly the British policy. Which way the USA is different from the classical imperialistic behaviour, Mr PCR? Your Government is run by drug traffickers, cocaine snorters, and sociopaths. Do a deep study of the quality of the people running the US administration and you will find that all of them 100% intellectually deficient, criminals, war criminals, and you are defending them in Marxist jargon. Leninism was Zionism at its worst.

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Two main issues raised in this article: (a) Germans are frightened of the criminal behaviour of the Americans and (b) The massive distrust in the mainstream media. The graph above shows 42.5% drop in readership of Frankfurter Allgemaine Zeitung (FAZ), a newspaper that once had reputation for good reporting. The article further says, 

"Given the danger of Washington pushing Europe into war with Russia, one can be glad that so many Europeans see through the perfidious propaganda lies spread by the mainstream media. Internet sites now perform the role abandoned by newspapers."

There is now widespread belief that internet sites are far more credible source of information. For those of us who write, this is  good news and I truly appreciate the sentiments expressed here.

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

NOT ONLY GERMANS, THE WHOLE WORLD IS SICK OF US-UK-ISRAEL COMPULSIVE AND HABITUAL LIES. But, yes, this is the first time we see a constructive approach from Germany's Angela Merkel. The question is this: Is she responding to German people's open resentment against NATO lies and wars in Eastern Ukraine? I doubt it. Back in 2005 she was imposed on the German people even when she had lost the election. German Government's offer of 500 million dollar aid for 'reconstruction of Eastern Ukraine also is a sham when the Germans know that the money will disappear in Kiev -stolen  by the those Nazi bastards- including this rascal Poroshenko. **************

  

POLITICAL EUROPE SUPPRESSED UNDER WASHINGTON'S THUMB IS WAKING UP. See here:

 

http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/08/25/guest-column-germany-america-frightens-us-roman-baudzus/

 

Note that there was a credible threat from the U.S. based on information that a law had been passed by both the House of Representatives and the Senate of the U.S. Congress 'that could eventually result in an invasion of the Netherlands by United States army forces.' We have also seen an open letter from a group of professors in Holland writing to Vladimir Putin on how the people have been dysinformed and that the Dutch people wish to apologise to the Russian people. Here is a Spiegel report [Use on line translation facility]:

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

OBAMA BUGGERS EUROPEAN ECONOMY. First to be devastated are the farmers, which appears to be the real objective of sanctions. The target of London banksters is to destroy global agriculture by any means they can. Food and water, something no one can do without. Next is de-industrialization. On target. Russian retaliatory sanction was anticipated and hence it is obvious that Europe's leaders are complicit in Anglo-Zio agenda. It simply does not matter to them how entire societies, ways of life, are destroyed.

Remember this definition:

PSYOPS or Psychological Operations: “Planned operations to convey selected information and indicators to foreign audiences to influence their emotions, motives, objective reasoning, and ultimately the behavior of foreign governments, organizations, groups, and individuals. The purpose of psychological operations is to induce or reinforce foreign attitudes and behavior favorable to the originator’s objectives. Also called PSYOP.

Did Ebola Escape Back To Africa In An ‘Orphan’ Lab Chimp? YOI SHIMATSU

Did Ebola Escape Back To Africa In An ‘Orphan’ Lab Chimp? YOI SHIMATSU | THE POWERS THAT BE | Scoop.it
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Another brilliant expose by Yoichi Shimatsu. I have known the pharmaceutical firms named here for decades. Shocking is his revelation of collusion between big-pharma, Monsanto and the big foundations including Bill Gates'. Postscript is even better: "Postscript: This writer later conveyed the facts about the viral-promoting aspects of chlorinated water to WHO officials, who showed absolutely no interest in such analysis. In their conventional viewpoint, chlorine is sacrosanct as the main method for sterilization of water and hospital rooms worldwide. The WHO shipments of vast amounts of chlorine to Africa could be promoting viral mutation and consequent infections rather than suppressing the epidemic. The first modern outbreak of Zaire ebola, as discovered by Peter Piot and his colleagues, was near Bumba, the terminus of a rail line, where the water supply was chlorinated and the local Catholic clinic used chlorine to sterilize its facilities. The conclusion is simple: water should instead be treated with filtration, reverse osmosis and nano-tech photocyde to lower the probability of viral outbreaks."
