From contaminated water to carcinogens in the air: WV's latest debacle

First, West Virginia residents were warned their water was unsafe to drink; now, one expert warns the recent Freedom Industries chemical spill could have contaminated the air as well. West Virginia Environmental Quality Board Member Scott Simonton testified that tests he conducted found trace amounts of cancer-causing formaldehyde in the air.

Fracking Hell: The Untold Story

An original investigative report by Earth Focus and UK's Ecologist Film Unit looks at the risks of natural gas development in the Marcellus Shale. From toxic chemicals in drinking water to unregulated interstate dumping of potentially radioactive waste that experts fear can contaminate water supplies in major population centers including New York City, are the health consequences worth the economic gains?

ISRAEL DID 9/11 - DID IT DO 3/11 TOO?

The security at the airports used in the 9/11 attack were Israeli owned.

The security at Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant on 3/11 was Israeli owned.

That's only the start of some very disturbing "coincidences".

Did the nuclear meltdown occur because of the earthquake and tsunami, or from the Stuxnet virus that compromised the reactor's safety system?

Libya’s Sea of Fresh Water Beneath the Desert, But Wait, There’s More

We used to say "follow the money" when tracking down the truth in a world event.

In the 21st century, perhaps we should now be saying "follow the power grid".

Armed services are urged to stock kitchens with Gulf seafood

Navy Secretary Ray Mabus, who doubles as President Barack Obama's point man on Gulf Coast oil spill recovery, is pressing America's armed services to consume as much Gulf seafood as possible.  A large-scale national marketing campaign will use $30 million in BP money and millions more in federal dollars, to reassure restaurants and markets across the country that Gulf seafood is safe.

Ewell Smith, executive director of the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board, said he would like to see Gulf seafood as the choice throughout the public domain, "whether it's the military or prison systems or school systems."

Chicago CFO, Royal Bank of Scotland Director, Pushes Privatization of Canadian Hydro

The push for the privatization of Canada's immense hydro assets started at the Bilderberg 1996 conference.  Canadian industrialst Maurice "carbon credits" Strong was a major force behind the push.  Now comes Dana Levenson, Chicago's  former Chief Financial Officer and present Managing Director - Head of Infrastructure Banking, Americas, of the Royal Bank of Scotland.  Levenson was behind the privatization of a slew of Chicago assets.  Privatization of Canada's hydro WILL raise energy prices to both US and Canadian energy consumers, and will result in price hikes on essential goods.

Next Generation Biofuels, from the makers of the A-bomb

… In June 2006, the UC announced an agreement with the world’s second largest oil company, British Petroleum, whereby it will receive half a billion dollars per year over 10 years, principally for research into genetically modified elephant grass and other transgenic plants that are candidates to produce alcohol for non-fossil car fuel. The project is housed as a facility on campus called the Energy Biosciences Institute (EBI). In keeping with the “public-private partnership” funding model that currently prevails, the State of California put up “matching funds” in the form of $73 million in construction bonds to help smooth the way for the EBI’s landing on the Berkeley campus.

This is one of UC Berkeley’s largest current applied research programs, and it naturally comes straight from the “crisis” playbook. The project is justified under the pretense of helping to solve two major crises – global climate change and its twin bogeyman, oil depletion. In reality, biofuel monoculture has become perhaps the leading cause of dispossession of small farmers in the Global South, as well as the destruction of important ecosystems such as the Amazon Basin rain forest.

Berkeley’s biofuels institute will only further enable multi-national corporations to penetrate, reorganize, poison and despoil the lands, livelihoods, and psyches of Amazon Basin and other cultures. The net impact of the EBI on the environment – that is, the actually existing ecosystems of South America, Indonesia, et al. – will be decidedly negative. On the day of the contract signing, then-UC President Robert Dynes heralded it as “a great day for Mother Earth.” …

Mining the soil: Biomass, the unsustainable energy source

The promotional material from Big Green Energy, aka Biomass Gas & Electric, presents biomass as “clean, renewable energy”, sustainable and green. The US Department of Energy uses the terms “clean and renewable” when introducing visitors at its website to the topic.

But is it accurate to describe the repeated removal of biomass from agricultural or forested lands as sustainable?

Doomsday Seed Vault: Do Gates, Rockefeller & GMO titans know something?

When Bill Gates decides through the Gates Foundation to invest some $30 million of their hard earned money in a project, it is worth looking at. No project is more interesting at the moment than a curious project in one of the world’s most remote spots, Svalbard. Bill Gates is investing millions in a seed bank on the Barents Sea near the Arctic Ocean, some 1,100 kilometers from the North Pole.

The Sierra Club: How Support for Industrial Wind Technology Betrays Its Mission, and Erodes Commitment to the Scientific Method

The physical nature and enormous size of industrial wind projects has caused a lot of blowback. Between Maryland and West Virginia, for example, there is potential for around 2000 wind turbines, each nearly 500-feet tall; they would be placed atop 400 miles of the Allegheny Mountain ridges. About 20 acres of forest must be cut to support each turbine—4-6 acres to accommodate the free flow of the wind per turbine; one or more large staging areas for each wind project; access road construction; and a variety of substations and transmission lines...

Chernobyl: The Gift That Never Stops Giving

Press TV, 19 July 2010

Oil lies becoming more preposterous

They lied about what happened on 9/11/2001. They lied about the need to make war on Iraq. They lied about the reasons they started bombing Afghanistan.

So I guess we should not be surprised that they have lied every day about the profound defacement using an out-of-control oil well to destroy the Gulf of Mexico.

But now the lies are beginning to catch up with them. Even the dullest of American minds is beginning to understand that the so-called facts being spouted by the corporate-kept, Jewish-owned mainstream media are becoming more preposterous.

Water sample "exploded" when chemist tested for oil; "Most likely" methane or Corexit

MOBILE, Alabama - 16 July 2010 - News 5 - More than a week has passed since Alabama's beaches have seen significant oil, and despite warnings along the Gulf Coast, some swimmers are taking their chances.

News Five collected samples of water and sand from Orange Beach, Gulf Shores, Katrina Key and Dauphin Island. To our eyes, the samples appeared normal, until we took them to a local lab to be tested.

SHOCK: Water "sample exploded" when chemist tested for oil; "Most likely" methane or Corexit (VIDEO)

MSNBC reporting that Corexit is killing cleanup workers

Corexit is a product line of solvents primarily used as a dispersant for breaking up oil slicks. It is produced by Nalco Holding Company which is associated with BP . Corexit 9500, four times more toxic than crude oil, is one of the most poisonous dispersants ever developed, and is up to 20 times more toxic than other dispersants, and only half as effective.e
