The Government has put us 19 trillion dollars in debt. They can not balance their checkbook. Many jobs have left the country to never return again. The real employment rate is much higher than official figures. Politicians seem more interested in the large corporations than the general public. Maybe they are wrong about global warming….can you take the chance ? Here’s an interesting article involving government………
Science study reports that coccolithophores' abundance has increased by an order of magnitude since 1960s, significantly changing ocean garden From the BIGELOW LABORATORY FOR OCEAN SCIENCES Coccoli...
Naomie Mullins's insight:
“The results show both the power of long-term time-series of ocean observations for deciphering how marine microbial communities are responding to climate change and offer evidence that the ocean garden is changing,” said Dr. William Balch, senior research scientist at Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences and a co-author of the paper. “We never expected to see the relative abundance of coccolithophores to increase 10 times in the North Atlantic over barely half a century. If anything, we expected that these sensitive calcifying algae would have decreased in the face of increasing ocean acidification (associated with increasing carbon dioxide entering the ocean from the burning of fossil-fuels). Instead, we see how these carbon-limited organisms appear to be using the extra carbon from CO2 to increase their relative abundance by an order of magnitude.
When I left my 7th grade math classroom for my Fulbright research assignment in Finland I thought I would come back from this experience with more inspiring, engaging, innovative lessons. I expected to have great new ideas on how to teach my mathematics curriculum and I would revamp my lessons so that I could include…
Fisher replied that all alternative fuel companies and most environmental groups are fronts for fossil fuel companies. I was still thrilled; perhaps Fisher was right, but at least I had found one that was moving in the right direction, albeit slowly, very slowly. If you visit their site, you will see, six years later, they have little more than puffed-upped press releases about studies and trials. I asked Michael Maser to confirm my math: Given a worldwide green light for waterpower, we could dispense with fossil fuel and nuclear power in ten years. His non-answer was “. . . there is not a simple answer to your question, because the political will to expedite . . . and deploy the technology has not been activated.”
In 1892 Frank Shuman invented wire glass safety glass. Additional patents were issued relating to the process of making wire glass and machines for making wire glass. In 1914 Shuman invented a process for making laminated safety glass, called safety glass, and manufactured by the Safety Glass Company.
We have proved the commercial profit of sun power in the tropics and have more particularly proved that after our stores of oil and coal are exhausted the human race can receive unlimited power from the [...]...
“Policies to ‘stop climate change’ are based on climate models that completely failed to predict the lack of warming for the past two decades. Observational data show clearly that the predictions of unacceptable warming by more carbon dioxide are wrong. Economic discount rates aside, policies designed to save the planet from more carbon dioxide are based on failed computer models.” Has there ever been a movement in human history that did not present itself as an ethical cause?

The next time you're out camping, whether it's outdoors in the wilderness or right outside in your own backyard, try this hack out for an effortless campfire all night long. While there is definitely some prep work involved, it's well worth it if you don't need a huge bonfire, and more so if you plan on cooking meals over the flames. In the video below, YouTube user Doogly demonstrates how to make a Swedish torch, which is also known as Swedish candle, Canadian candle, Swedish fire torch, Swedish log stove, or similar name, using a chainsaw. Basically, instead of tossing any firewood into
