The Royal Society Is Forced To Admit Doubts On ‘Global Warming’

leave a comment »

September 30, 2010: Steve Watson / Infowars.net – September 30, 2010

Ultra elitist environmental group The Royal Society has conceded that it has “uncertainties” over the science behind global warming, and admits that the planet is currently no longer heating up – a development that constitutes another significant blow to the idea that there is a scientific consensus on the matter.

The Royal Society’s guide, now titled ‘Climate change: a summary of the science’, has been altered following complaints from 43 of its own members that “knowledgeable people” were seeing through brazenly alarmist rhetoric. The previous Royal Society guides, called Climate Change Controversies and A Guide To Facts And Fictions About Climate Change produced in 2007 and 2005 respectively, were extremely frightening, yet completely unfounded future climate projections that called for governments to implement radical measures to prevent them from becoming reality.

The revised Royal Society guide (PDF here) refrains from pushing scare mongering scenarios of significantly rising sea levels and soaring temperatures, as it previously did. Instead it now reads, “It is not possible to determine exactly how much the Earth will warm or exactly how the climate will change in the future, but careful estimates of potential changes and associated uncertainties have been made.”…“Scientists continue to work to narrow these areas of uncertainty. Uncertainty can work both ways, since the changes and their impacts may be either smaller or larger than those projected.” the guide continues.

“The previous guidance was discouraging debate rather than encouraging it among knowledgeable people. The new guidance is clearer and a very much better document.” Royal Society member Professor Anthony Kelly told the Daily Mail in an interview.

The guide also notes: “There is currently insufficient understanding of the enhanced melting and retreat of the ice sheets on Greenland and West Antarctica to predict exactly how much the rate of sea level rise will increase above that observed in the past century for a given temperature increase.”…“Similarly, the possibility of large changes in the circulation of the North Atlantic Ocean cannot be assessed with confidence. The latter limits the ability to predict with confidence what changes in climate will occur in Western Europe.” it concludes.

The guide also states that the warming trend observed predominantly throughout the 1980s and 1990s stopped over a decade ago, an admission that has been forced following repeated exposure by warming skeptics, and that was also recently noted by Professor Phil Jones, the figure at the head of the Climategate scandal.

“The former publication gave the misleading impression that the ‘science is settled,'” Benny Peiser, Director of The Global Warming Policy Foundation sais, a group skeptical of anthropogenic global warming. “The new guide accepts that important questions remain open and uncertainties unresolved.” Peiser added.

However, The Royal Society clearly still wholeheartedly embraces the notion that human activity is altering the climate, even if it does couch it in less brazen rhetoric: “There is very strong evidence to indicate that climate change has occurred on a wide range of different timescales from decades to many millions of years; human activity is a relatively recent addition to the list of potential causes of climate change,” the guide states.

The development is still a very significant one however, given that The Royal Society, a 350 year old establishment outfit, has traditionally been the most vocal proponent for the hypothesis of AGW (Anthropogenic Global Warming). It was the former president of The Royal Society, Lord May, who made the infamous statement, “The debate on climate change is over.” When he was head of The Royal Society, May told government advisors: “On one hand, you have the entire scientific community and on the other you have a handful of people, half of them crackpots.”

The Royal Society has thrown its full weight behind the global warming movement, lending its absolute support for legislation aimed at reducing carbon emissions by 80%, a process that will devastate the global economy and drastically reduce living standards everywhere. It has been even more vehement than national governments have in its advocacy of the man-made cause of global warming, calling for such drastic CO2 cuts to be made in the short term before the usual target date of 2050. Not surprising then that The Royal Society was also intimately tied to efforts to whitewash the Climategate emails scandal.

The Royal Society has also conducted extensive research into geoengineering the planet, and continually lobbies the government to divert funding into it. A recently published and lengthy UK Government report drew heavily upon the Society’s research and concluded that a global body such as the UN should be appointed to exclusively regulate world-wide geoengineering of the planet in order to stave off man made global warming. This information becomes even more disturbing when you consider the mindset of those who make up the membership of The Royal Society, as it is riddled with renowned eco-fascists, open eugenicists and depopulation fanatics.

One notable member is James Lovelock, an eco-fascist who advocates ending democracy and instituting an authoritative elite to oversee global climate management and a radical stemming of the human population in order to combat climate change. He is also a patron of the Optimum Population Trust, a notorious UK-based public policy group that campaigns for a gradual decline in the global human population – which it refers to as “primates” or “animals” – to what it sees as a “sustainable” level.

Lovelock is also an ardent advocate of geoengineering. In 2007 Lovelock proposed laying vast swathes of pipes under the world’s oceans in order to pump water from the bottom of the seas – rich in nutrients, but mostly dead – to the top. The idea being that the action would encourage algae to breed, absorb more carbon and release more dimethyl sulphide into the atmosphere, a chemical known to seed sunlight reflecting clouds. Such methods are also covered in the Commons report.

Another member is Jonathon Porritt, former chair of the UK Sustainable Development Commission, one of former Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s leading green advisers, who has stated that Britain’s population must be cut in half from around 60 million to 30 million if it is to build a sustainable society. Porritt is also a member of the Optimum Population Trust (OPT), a connection that caused raised eyebrows when it was announced that Porritt was to be a part of a forthcoming Royal Society “Objective” Global Population Study.

Also on the Royal Society’s working group for their global population study is another of their patrons, and another OPT member, BBC darling, wildlife broadcaster and film-maker Sir David Attenborough. Attenborough has called for a one child policy like that of Communist China to be implemented in Britain. The proposal is one of the OPT’s main initiatives. Again, how is this man’s influence going to result in an “objective” study on population?

Another member of that working group is Cambridge economist Sir Partha Dasgupta, also a fellow of the OPT. Professor Malcolm Potts, another member of the working group was the first male doctor at the Marie Stopes Abortion Clinic in London. He also advised on the UK’s 1967 Abortion Act.

Marie Stopes was a prominent campaigner for the implementation of eugenics policies. In Radiant Motherhood (1920) she called for the “sterilisation of those totally unfit for parenthood [to] be made an immediate possibility, indeed made compulsory.” That group, according to her, included non-whites and the poor. Stopes, an anti-Semite Nazi sympathizer, campaigned for selective breeding to achieve racial purity, a passion she shared with Adolf Hitler in adoring letters and poems that she sent the leader of the Third Reich.

Stopes also attended the Nazi congress on population science in Berlin in 1935, while calling for the “compulsory sterilization of the diseased, drunkards, or simply those of bad character.” Stopes acted on her appalling theories by concentrating her abortion clinics in poor areas so as to reduce the birth rate of the lower classes. Stopes left most of her estate to the Eugenics Society, an organization that shared her passion for racial purity and still exists today under the new name The Galton Institute. The society has included members such as Charles Galton Darwin (grandson of the evolutionist), Julian Huxley and Margaret Sanger.

Perhaps most notably, is the head of The Royal Society’s new study, John Sulston, who most famously played a leading role in the Human Genome Project, the effort to identify and map the thousands of genes of the human genome. Sulston worked under James D. Watson, a notorious eugenicist who has previously argued that black people are inherently less intelligent than whites and has advocated the creation of a “super-race” of humans, where the attractive and physically strong are genetically manufactured under laboratory conditions.

Watson is also affiliated with The Royal Society, indeed, in 1993 he received the Society’s Copley Medal of honour for “outstanding achievements in research in any branch of science, and alternates between the physical sciences and the biological sciences”. Sulston is also a leading advocate of the renowned atheist group, The British Humanist Association.

It is clear that this organisation and these people are immersed in the science of eugenics, and that they have continued the science under the guise of environmentalism. They hate humanity and any notion that their studies will represent anything other than an establishment avocation of mass depopulation is farcical. It is imperative that the media, places of education, government representatives and the wider public are made aware of these facts.

The fact that The Royal Society has been forced to backtrack and tone down it’s rhetoric on global warming highlights that their agenda is being successfully exposed…

The Great Global Warming Swindle

Global Warming Or Global Governance?

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: This is indeed another victory for truth. I have spent the better part of ten years exposing the fraud of man-made global warming (AGW) while simultaneously bringing public attention to the geo-engineering of the atmosphere – aka chemtrails – being sprayed relentlessly across the globe. And finally, we are winning this war for the minds of humanity by revealing the truth and exposing the lies! – SJH

Biblical Clues In Stuxnet Computer Worm Implicates US And Israel

leave a comment »

September 30, 2010: John Markoff & David E. Sanger / New York Times – September 29, 2010

Deep inside the computer worm that some specialists suspect is aimed at slowing Iran’s race for a nuclear weapon lies what could be a fleeting reference to the Book of Esther, the Old Testament tale in which the Jews pre-empt a Persian plot to destroy them.

That use of the word “Myrtus” — which can be read as an allusion to Esther — to name a file inside the code is one of several murky clues that have emerged as computer experts try to trace the origin and purpose of the rogue Stuxnet program, which seeks out a specific kind of command module for industrial equipment. Not surprisingly, the Israelis are not saying whether Stuxnet has any connection to the secretive cyberwar unit it has built inside Israel’s intelligence service.

Nor is the Obama administration, which while talking about cyber-defenses has also rapidly ramped up a broad covert program, inherited from the Bush administration, to undermine Iran’s nuclear program. In interviews in several countries, experts in both cyberwar and nuclear enrichment technology say the Stuxnet mystery may never be solved.

There are many competing explanations for myrtus, which could simply signify myrtle, a plant important to many cultures in the region. But some security experts see the reference as a signature allusion to Esther, a clear warning in a mounting technological and psychological battle as Israel and its allies try to breach Tehran’s most heavily guarded project. Others doubt the Israelis were involved and say the word could have been inserted as deliberate misinformation to implicate Israel.

“The Iranians are already paranoid about the fact that some of their scientists have defected and several of their secret nuclear sites have been revealed,” one former intelligence official who still works on Iran issues said recently. “Whatever the origin and purpose of Stuxnet, it ramps up the psychological pressure.” So a calling card in the code could be part of a mind game, or sloppiness, or whimsy from the coders.

The malicious code has appeared in many countries, notably China, India, Indonesia and Iran. But there are tantalizing hints that Iran’s nuclear program was the primary target. Officials in both the United States and Israel have made no secret of the fact that undermining the computer systems that control Iran’s huge enrichment plant at Natanz is a high priority. (The Iranians know it, too: They have never let international inspectors into the control room of the plant, the inspectors report, presumably to keep secret what kind of equipment they are using.)

The fact that Stuxnet appears designed to attack a certain type of Siemens industrial control computer, used widely to manage oil pipelines, electrical power grids and many kinds of nuclear plants, may be telling. Just last year officials in Dubai seized a large shipment of those controllers — known as the Simatic S-7 — after Western intelligence agencies warned that the shipment was bound for Iran and would likely be used in its nuclear program.

“What we were told by many sources,” said Olli Heinonen, who retired last month as the head of inspections at the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna, “was that the Iranian nuclear program was acquiring this kind of equipment.”

Also, starting in the summer of 2009, the Iranians began having tremendous difficulty running their centrifuges – the tall, silvery machines that spin at supersonic speed to enrich uranium – and which can explode spectacularly if they become unstable. In New York last week, Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, shrugged off suggestions that the country was having trouble keeping its enrichment plants going.

Yet something — perhaps the worm or some other form of sabotage, bad parts or a dearth of skilled technicians — is indeed slowing Iran’s advance.

The reports on Iran show a fairly steady drop in the number of centrifuges used to enrich uranium at the main Natanz plant. After reaching a peak of 4,920 machines in May 2009, the numbers declined to 3,772 centrifuges this past August, the most recent reporting period. That is a decline of 23 percent. At the same time, production of low-enriched uranium has remained fairly constant, indicating the Iranians have learned how to make better use of fewer working machines.

Computer experts say the first versions of the worm appeared as early as 2009 and that the sophisticated version contained an internal time stamp from January of this year. These events add up to a mass of suspicions, not proof. Moreover, the difficulty experts have had in figuring out the origin of Stuxnet points to both the appeal and the danger of computer attacks in a new age of cyberwar.

For intelligence agencies they are an almost irresistible weapon, free of fingerprints. Israel has poured huge resources into Unit 8200, its secretive cyberwar operation, and the United States has built its capacity inside the National Security Agency and inside the military, which just opened a Cyber Command.

But the near impossibility of figuring out where they came from makes deterrence a huge problem — and explains why many have warned against the use of cyberweapons. No country, President Obama was warned even before he took office, is more vulnerable to cyberattack than the United States.

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: If there is one thing that I have learned in the course of over a decade of researching the global elite, it is that they always leave a clue or calling card to reveal the truth. It is a flawed creed they must adhere to in the teachings of their secret societies. I don’t think there’s any doubt that Israel and/or the US are responsible for this attack as the spin cycle begins to whirl… – SJH

Chemtrails In The Sky: Atmospheric And Oceanic Geo-Engineering

with one comment

September 30, 2010: Rosalind Peterson / Agriculture Defense Coalition – September 30, 2010

The Congressional Research Service released its new report on Geoengineering for members of the U.S. Congress on August 16, 2010.  The U.S. House Science & Technology Committee will release their interim and final reports on their Geoengineering Hearings in September 2010.  The U.S. House Science and Technology Committee on Geoengineering is working with the UK Parliament on Global Geoengineering Governance and has released its 5th Report (printed by the House of Commons) on March 10, 2010.  All of these published reports are located below in the pdf file section.

SOLAR RADIATION MANAGEMENT: ATMOSPHERIC & OCEAN GEOENGINEERING

Geoengineering is defined as planetary-scale environmental engineering of our atmosphere, our weather, the oceans, and the Earth itself.  The methods, or schemes, that may be used now without public oversight or debate, prior public notification, U.S. Congress or State oversight, are staggering in number and scope. 

(Update:  We should all remember that volcanoes erupt each year negating the need for any geoengineering schemes to be deployed.  In March 2010, a volcano in Iceland erupted and sent an ash cloud spreading over Europe which may last for months and may create global cooling along with acid rains which will have negative impacts on trees, water supplies, oceans, and soils.  Earth’s natural systems are still working…and we can’t afford for man to add to these problems or exacerbate them by deploying more toxic chemicals and particles into the atmosphere to reduce the amount of direct sunlight reaching the Earth.  Each unpredictable volcanic eruption on Earth has the same effect.

A few geoengineers have been on the news in recent days stating that the Iceland volcano will not cause any cooling…in order to keep promoting geoengineering as an option.  It should be noted that other scientists have been stating for the news media that these volcanic plumes will change the weather and also that there are acid rains and human health problems which could be associated with this and other periodic eruptions.

Geoengineers had no advance notice of this eruption nor will they know when future eruptions will take place.  Thus, we have to consider these natural events and measure their synergistic and cumulative effects before considering artificial geoengineering schemes. In addition, the synergistic and cumulative effects of their proposed geoengineering schemes, when natural volcanoes serve the same function, is unknown.  It is now time to shelve man-made geoengineering schemes… – RP) 

Many private corporations, universities, government agencies, private individuals, states, counties, and cities, have deployed, or will participate in deploying, a vast array of geoengineering experiments in the near future without public oversight or consent.  Currently no government agency, or the U.S. Congress at this time, will have any idea what the cumulative or synergistic effects may be when these experiments are deployed.  In addition, no one, not even the U.S. Congress or the public, will have any oversight of these programs, the chemicals or particles that will be used or how they will be implemented.  Thus, action is needed today to prevent these questionable experiments.

The U.S. House Science & Technology Committee held their first Geoengineering Hearing on November 5, 2009.  Two more were held in February and March 2010.  The public, the Environmental Protection Agency, at either Federal or State levels, state agencies, agriculture representation, medical doctors, and ocean scientists were not asked to testify at this hearing or in the two subsequent hearings held in 2010.  (C-SPAN did not tape or broadcast these hearings and the major media ignored them.)

The U.S. House Science & Technology Committee and the UK Parliament have engaged in an agreement to participate in geoengineering discussions and the possible implementation of global geoengineering governance proposed by the Royal Society and several climate scientists.  Private and public meetings of climate scientists, with little media coverage, were initiated in February and March 2010, in California, in order to elaborate on possible geoengineering schemes and to discuss global geoengineering governance guidelines. 

The purpose of one set of schemes are to initiate “Solar Radiation Management (SRM)” experiments.  SRM is designed to reduce the amount of direct sunlight reaching the Earth.  The consequences of these SRM schemes are unknown since planetary-scale engineering involves so many different geoengineering schemes with unknown cumulative and synergistic effects.

A key AAAS February 2010, geoengineering write-up states: “…Studies show, however, that people make judgments based primarily on their values, belief systems, world views, and emotions.  Facts play a much more minor role.  This gap cannot be bridged by loading the public with facts, or trying to make the public more science literate…”  Thus, a whole series of presentations were made to advise geoengineers and others on how to manipulate the public so that they would support these schemes.

In a Press Release dated December of 2002 titled:  “GEOENGINEERING TOO RISKY” A Lawrence Livermore Laboratory Press release warns, “…There are many reasons why geoengineering is not a preferred option for climate stabilization…”  These prescriptions include risks of global “system failure” and the “unpredictable responses” of Earth’s climate system to large-scale human intervention…” 

On March 22-26, 2010, the Climate Respond Fund (note the partners listing in the document section below),  sponsored the Asilomar International Conference on Climate Intervention Technologies in Monterey, California. The conference was designed to develop (global geoengineering governance) guidelines for  “…research and testing of proposed climate intervention and geoengineering technologies…”  

What are the consequences of deploying Solar Radiation Management geoengineering experiments?

1)  Some of these experiments are designed to reduce the amount of direct sunlight reaching the Earth thus reducing the power output and the effectiveness of solar panels and solar cars.

2)  Many proposed chemicals or particles used in these geoengineering schemes (i.e., U.S. Navy/NASA/C.A.R.E. experiments deployed September 19, 2009), are likely to be toxic to humans, marine mammals, oceans, fish, wildlife, food pollinators, and birds.  Many of these toxic chemicals, like sulfur, have the potential to contaminate drinking water, soil, cause acid rain or air pollution, and may impair human health from lack of Vitamin D, by reducing the amount of sunlight reaching the Earth.

3)  NASA research studies show that increasingly persistent jet contrails may turn into “man-made clouds” (or white haze), and are “…trapping warmth in the atmosphere and exacerbating global warming…Any change in global cloud cover may contribute to long-term changes in the Earth’s climate…” No current U.S. legislation addresses water vapor and aviation impacts on the global atmosphere.  In addition, our scientists do not appear to be funding or working toward reducing or eliminating this problem. What happens when additional programs are put in place to reduce the amount of sunlight reaching the Earth when we already have man-made clouds dimming the sun and exacerbating global warming?

4)  SRM may limit Honey Bee food pollination because the bee navigates and communicates through the use of ultraviolet light.  And we have no idea what the cumulative impacts of toxic chemicals, particles, and reduced sunlight will have on all of our pollinators, endangering food production.

5)  Photosynthesis is required for the majority of life on Earth to exist, along with healthy trees, and food crop production.  When cloud cover and reduced sunlight is present, crop production drops.  When direct sunlight and normal rainfall is present, crop production increases.  What happens when geoengineers deliberately reduce the amount of direct sunlight reaching the Earth?  What are the consequences of multiple uncontrolled experiments? 

The climate scientists and geoengineers all have one repeated mantra:  “…Geoengineering is not a solution to climate change and global warming…”  They are instead enlisting support to spend enormous sums to buy time to do something later.  Just what research, project funding, and development are they now engaging in to fix our current pollution problems now?  Nothing!  They are not promoting research into benefits that will be long-lasting or make a difference now. 

The “temporary fix” theory with “unknown consequences” seems to be their only contribution to the disaster they predict.  Should the public be willing to accept this temporary fix with unknown consequences? This attitude is unacceptable because those conducting the geoengineering experiments will be unaccountable if their experiments go awry or create profound negative consequences. 

Professor Benford wrote the following regarding the public in a Reason.com article in 1997:  “…But perhaps the greatest unknown is social:  How will the politically aware public react–those who vote, anyway?  If geoengineers are painted early and often as Dr. Strangeloves of the air, they will fail.  Properly portrayed as allies of science–and true environmentalism–they could become heroes… A major factor here will be whether mitigation looks like yet another top-down contrivance, another set of orders from the elite. Draconian policing of fuel burning will certainly look that way, a frowning Aunt Bessie elbowing into daily details…In contrast, mitigation does not have to push a new camel’s nose into our tents… Technical solutions can play out far from people’s lives, on the sea or high in the air…Once we become caretakers, we cannot stop…(they) must be carried forward in the shadow of our stewardship…”

Instead of questionable geoengineering experiments, all reductions of greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants, at their source, should be regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency and all funding should go to the EPA for developing alternative energy and transportation.  Scientists and researchers should be funded to invent ways to use waste energy from currently operating energy plants to produce clean, green power, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions is where funding should be directed…not to those programs and experiments that will not reduce our impact on Earth from various types of pollution sources.  The energy of the geoengineers should be redirected to solve pollution problems, not add to them.

On June 10, 2010 the U.S. Senate voted to uphold a 2007 U.S. Supreme Court Decision, that allows the EPA to regulate and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. 

EPA regulation of greenhouse gases is the ideal solution because they can start today and the U.S. can lead the world in taking immediate action instead of waiting until 2017, under U.S. Senate Bill 1733, or 2020 under the United Nations Copenhagen Accord.  The hitch in both U.S. Senate Bill 1733 (or the new one to be introduced by Senators Kerry & Lieberman), and the U.N. Accord on Climate Change is that no reductions are planned until either 2017 or 2020, and then only a 10-20% reduction in greenhouse gas emission is on the table at this time – nothing that starts today…which means, due to the long delay and limited reductions, that there must be no greenhouse crisis?

Our local, county, state and federal representatives should take immediate action to stop these geoengineering scheme deployments until scientists from every field, agriculture interests, ocean scientists, marine biologists, and the public have had time to thoroughly investigate these schemes and their effects on the Earth’s environment. No one has the right to use the Earth, or Earth’s atmosphere, as a giant experimental physics laboratory due to the unknown consequences of such actions. 

State and U.S. Congressional Hearings should be immediately held in order to completely investigate the consequences of proposed and ongoing geoengineering experiments by any individual, state, county, private corporation, the U.S. military, university or U.S. government agencies on agriculture, crop production, human health, and our oceans.  There is a lot at stake and all of us should make our voices heard in this debate.  End 

Note: Professor Gregory Benford of U.C. Irving stated in his article on Arctic Geoengineering on November 20, 2006: “…This idea is only the first step in making climate science…into an active science… This is not a new transition in scientific style…We will live inside the experiment …The main thrust of all this is to carefully use our ability to attack warming at its roots – incoming sunlight now, carbon dioxide later… Costs seem readily attainable – perhaps a few hundred of millions of dollars for an Arctic experiment. High altitude trials over the open ocean are little constrained by law or treaty, so show-stopper politics may be avoided…”

Funding:  January 28, 2010 Wired Science:  Bill Gates has sunk at least $4.5 million of his personal wealth into geoengineering research.  http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2010/01/bill-gates-paying-for-climate-hacking-resear

“…While it’s a small chunk of Gates’ vast personal fortune, it’s a sign that the founder of Microsoft thinks we should at least be looking into the controversial practice of intentionally altering the Earth’s climate on a global scale. “[Gates] views geoengineering as a way to buy time, but it’s not a solution to the problem” of climate change, Gates’ spokesperson John Pinette told Science Insider. “Bill views this as an important avenue for research — among many others, including new forms of clean energy.”

The money will be directed by two high-level scientists at the forefront of geoengineering research: climate scientist Ken Caldeira, of Stanford’s Carnegie Department of Global Ecology, and physicist David Keith of the University of Calgary. They will decide which technologies should receive the cash in order to alter the stratosphere to reflect solar energy, filter carbon dioxide directly from the atmosphere and brighten ocean clouds…”

“…In a related development Keith, one of the scientists directing Gates’ money, co-authored a Nature editorial this week calling for an international fund for “solar-radiation management” in addition to traditional carbon emissions cuts. “Solar-radiation management may be the only human response that can fend off rapid and high-consequence climate change impacts,” Keith said in a press release Wednesday… He and his co-authors, Edward Parson at the University of Michigan and Granger Morgan at Carnegie Mellon University, propose a budget for solar-radiation management (aka geoengineering), beginning with $10 million a year now and growing to $1 billion annually by the end of 2020. The organization that manages the funds would also develop the governance structures to provide transparent risk analysis and manage feedback from the world’s countries…”  Thus, there would be no Congressional or public oversight…complete freedom to use the oceans and the atmosphere as a private physics laboratory… [read more below]

Mexican Gulf States File Lawsuits In US Over BP’s Gulf Oil Disaster

leave a comment »

September 29, 2010: Guillermo Contreras / My San Antonio.com – September 29, 2010

Three Mexican states have filed lawsuits in San Antonio against BP Plc., Transocean, Halliburton and associated companies over the disastrous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, alleging the oil plume has made it into international waters and will have an adverse impact on the economy and environment. The lawsuits were filed by the following Mexican gulf states of Tamaulipas (which borders Texas), Veracruz and Quintana Roo, which is home to the tourist-beach centers of Cancún, Cozumel and Playa del Carmen, and the first by a foreign government in a U.S. federal court over the BP oil disaster, according to Enrique Serna, a lawyer in San Antonio, Texas for the Mexican states.

BP faces more than 1,000 lawsuits in state and federal courts in connection with the largest offshore oil spill in U.S. history. The claims include economic loss, environmental damage and personal injuries and deaths. Most of the federal suits, including the ones filed by Serna, are being consolidated in New Orleans for pretrial procedural and evidentiary issues, though the suits may later head back to the originating courts for trial.

On Monday, a suit filed against the companies in state district court by a San Antonio distributor, Groomer Seafood Inc., was moved to San Antonio’s federal court and also will be headed to New Orleans for pretrial matters. The Mexican states claim the financial damages from the spill, set off by the explosion and sinking of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in April, are expected to grow. They allege negligence on the part of BP, Transocean and Halliburton is responsible for the explosion and subsequent spill.

Serna’s co-counsel, Daniel Serna, said the states had no choice but to sue because the $20 billion compensation fund set up by BP doesn’t include foreign entities. Spokesmen for BP and Transocean said the companies don’t comment on pending litigation. “However, the multidistrict litigation court currently is working with involved parties to develop common procedures for the efficient and fair hearing of all cases,” Transocean said by e-mail. “We support the MDL court in its effort and are confident that Transocean’s position on all issues will be clearly heard as we move through this process.”

“The allegations in these lawsuits appear to be without merit and we will vigorously contest each in court,” said Teresa Wong, a spokeswoman for Halliburton. Enrique Serna said that, as cold fronts move into the area, the underwater plume of oil will further foul Mexico’s fishing waters in the gulf and possibly its shores.

The suits were filed in San Antonio in part, because the Alamo City, is considered a “very international, friendly city for the Mexican nationals to come over and feel comfortable in the legal environment,” Enrique Serna said. The suits seek unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.

Gulf Oil Catastrophe

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: No amount of money in civil court will ever be enough to compensate for this crime against humanity and the consequent environmental disaster it has unleashed for decades to come. Criminal charges must be pursued with convictions and sentences carried out to the fullest degree! – SJH

US Defense Secretary Says Too Few In US Bear The Burdens Of War

leave a comment »

September 29, 2010: Anne Flaherty / Associated Press via Yahoo News – September 29, 2010

Durham, NC – Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Wednesday that most Americans have grown too detached from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and see military service as “something for other people to do.”

In a speech Wednesday at Duke University, Gates said this disconnect has imposed a heavy burden on a small segment of society and wildly driven up the costs of maintaining an all-volunteer force.

Because fewer Americans see military service as their duty, troops today face repeated combat tours and long separations from family. The 2.4 million people serving in the armed forces today represent less than 1 percent of the country’s total population.

To attract and retain recruits, the Defense Department finds itself spending more money, including handsome bonuses and education benefits. The money spent on personnel and benefits has nearly doubled since the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan, from $90 billion to $170 billion.

“That is our sacred obligation,” Gates told the audience of compensating troops. “But given the enormous fiscal pressures facing the country,” the nation must devise “an equitable and sustainable system of military pay and benefits that reflects the realities of this century.” Gates, who plans to retire next year, has been using academic-style speeches to outline what he believes to be the nation’s toughest challenges that lie ahead when it comes to defense.

Earlier this year, Gates asked whether troops were training for the right kinds of missions and called into question the utility of D-Day style amphibious landings handled historically by the Marine Corps. He has also embarked on a cost-cutting initiative to prepare for what he says are leaner days ahead for the department.

As is the case in most of these speeches, Gates on Wednesday tried to raise awareness about a long-term problem rather than solve it. He offered no plan for what he described as a growing divide between Americans in uniform and those who aren’t.  “Whatever their fond sentiments for men and women in uniform, for most Americans the war remains an abstraction — a distant and unpleasant series of news items that do not affect them personally,” Gates said.

Even after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, for most Americans “service in the military — no matter how laudable — has become something for other people to do,” he added.

Gates gave his speech in front of some 1,200 faculty and students at Duke, considered one of the nation’s top universities. Like most elite colleges, only a small fraction of Duke students consider military service. With 34 of its 6,400 undergraduates enrolled in its Reserve Officers’ Training Corps, an officer commissioning program known as ROTC, Duke is actually considered among the more military-friendly elite colleges.

Yale, for example, has only four of its 5,200 students enrolled in ROTC, whereas Harvard doesn’t allow ROTC or military recruiters on campus. Without calling out any one particular university, Gates said he was disappointed in institutions that “used to send hundreds of graduates into the armed forces, but now struggle to commission a handful of officers every year.”

The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are considered the first large-scale, protracted conflicts since the Revolutionary War fought entirely with volunteers. Most military officials agree that this isn’t a bad thing. Today’s U.S. military forces are considered more professional and better educated than their predecessors.

More enlisted troops hold a high school diploma, or its equivalent, than their civilian peers. Two-thirds of new recruits come from neighborhoods that are at or above the median household income. But the military isn’t representative of the country as a whole. Recruits are most likely to serve only if they grow up around others who do so. The military also draws heavily from rural areas, particularly in the South and the mountain West.

The trend is reinforced by the location of military bases, which tend to be in rural areas and the South where land is cheapest, rather than close to the big cities and the Northeast and West. Today, most soldiers who are not deployed are stationed in Texas, Washington, Georgia, Kentucky and North Carolina. Many military facilities in the Northeast and along the West coast, meanwhile, have been shut down for environmental and budgetary reasons.

Whereas Alabama hosts 10 ROTC programs, the city of Los Angeles — with twice the population — hosts only four. “There is a risk over time of developing a cadre of military leaders that politically, culturally and geographically have less and less in common with the people they have sworn to defend,” Gates said.

The premise underlying an all-volunteer force also has changed. Initiated in 1973, the concept was that such a force would fight in short, conventional conflicts like the 1991 Gulf War, or defend the U.S. and its allies against Soviet aggression.

But after almost a decade of warfare since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, troops who have escaped combat unscathed still faced repeated deployments with long separations from their families. In Iraq at one point, some combat tours stretched to 18 months. More than 1 million soldiers and Marines have been deployed there during the course of the conflict.

The consequences of long deployments in combat zones have been real. Suicide figures have increased, while the divorce rate among enlisted soldiers has nearly doubled. “No matter how patriotic, how devoted they are, at some point they will want to have the semblance of a normal life — getting married, starting a family, going to college or graduate school, seeing their children grow up — all of which they have justly earned,” Gates said.

Without offering specifics, Gates said a system must be created that is generous enough to recruit and retain people without causing the Defense Department to sink under the weight of personnel costs.

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: As a former US Marine, I have a memo to US Defense Secretary Gates…

Introduction – Mr. Gates, we are not “detached,” we are engaged in the truth! The American people don’t buy this government’s bullshit lies any longer concerning 9/11; Osama bin Dead; the CIA created, backed and funded Taleban and Al-CIAda; the manufactured “war on terror”; the “war on drugs”; or anything else for that matter. These illegal wars are acts of genocide by the likes of you. We see your “Wag the Dog!” 

Suggestion – Get your ass out on the front lines with the rest of your Zionist crony cowards who created these fake “wars” and go fight the boogeymen you created. You want a war, go to fucking war yourself and “bear the burdens of war!” 

Translation – We are well aware of the “system” you speak of to “recruit and retain people” to carry out your war crimes: It’s called conscription, or the draft, otherwise known as slavery! No slaves, no war!

Conclusion – Enough have been murdered on your watch. You, sir, are a war criminal and a traitor! – SJH

UPDATE: I had posted this memo verbatim, minus the profanity, in the Comments section of this Yahoo News article and it was expectedly and promptly censored. Welcome to Amerika! – SJH

The Chemtrail Conspiracy: ‘What In The World Are They Spraying?’

September 29, 2010: Infowars Editors / Infowars.com – September 29, 2010

By now everyone has seen crisscrossing streaks of white clouds trailing behind jet aircraft, stretching from horizon to horizon, eventually turning the sky into a murky haze.

Our innate intelligence tells us these are not mere vapor trails from jet engines, but no one yet has probed the questions: WHO is doing this and WHY.

With the release of this video, all of that has changed. Here is the story of a rapidly developing industry called Geo-engineering, driven by scientists, corporations, and governments intent on changing global climate, controlling the weather, and altering the chemical composition of soil and water — all supposedly for the betterment of mankind.

Although officials insist that these programs are only in the discussion phase, evidence is abundant that they have been underway since about 1990 — and the effect has been devastating to crops, wildlife, and human health. We are being sprayed with toxic substances without our consent and, to add insult to injury, they are lying to us about it. Do not watch this documentary if you have high blood pressure.

Produced by G. Edward Griffin, Michael Murphy, and Paul Wittenberger. Runtime 95 minutes. Expected ship date, October 22, 2010. Preorder now to secure your copy. Order here and get it first…

Terror Plot Intercepted In Europe As Eiffel Tower Evacuated, Again

leave a comment »

September 29, 2010: Paisley Dodds / Associated Press via Yahoo News – September 28, 2010

LONDON – Intelligence officials have intercepted a credible terror plot against Britain and France, raising security fears at the Eiffel Tower on Tuesday, but failing to raise the overall threat level in either country.

The Eiffel Tower was briefly evacuated Tuesday evening after officials received a bomb threat called in from a telephone booth. It was the second such alert at the monument in two weeks.

The warning came as French officials were put on alert for possible terror attacks. British officials, too, have been aware of a possible attack but the terror threat warning has not changed from “severe.”

“There have been a succession of terror operations we’ve been dealing with over recent weeks but one to two that have preoccupied us,” said one British government official who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of his work. “Still, it hasn’t been to the degree that we have raised the threat level.”

Another British official, who spoke on the same terms, would not confirm the plot was “al-Qaida inspired” but said there was an “Islamist connection” and that the plots were in an early stage. No other details were given.

Since the Sept. 11 terror attacks in the United States nine years ago, the terror group has moved outside of Afghanistan and Pakistan to other countries such as Somalia and Yemen. German officials denied Tuesday they had intercepted threats, saying there had been no change to their threat level.

In Washington, a Western counterterrorism official said some missile strikes in a recent surge of attacks by unmanned U.S. drones in Pakistan were aimed at disrupting suspected terrorist plots aimed at Europe. It wasn’t known whether the drone attacks were related specifically to the plot that European authorities said they had intercepted.

The counterterrorism official said the targeted strikes were aimed at al-Qaida and other militant groups arrayed in Pakistan’s tribal region near the Afghanistan border. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the details of the terror plot remain sensitive.

The Obama administration has intensified the use of drone-fired missiles in Pakistan’s border area but this month there have been at least 21 attacks, more than double the highest number fired in any other single month. A suspected U.S. missile strike on Tuesday killed four militants in northwest Pakistan’s South Waziristan region, just across the border from Afghanistan, intelligence officials said. There was no word on the identities of those killed in the attack.

The counterterrorism official, who is familiar with the drone strikes and the details of the Europe terror plots, said Tuesday that the missile strikes in Pakistan are “a product of precise intelligence and precise weapons. We’ve been hitting targets that pose a threat to our troops in Afghanistan and terrorists plotting attacks in South Asia and beyond.”

In Paris, French police on Tuesday closed off the surroundings of the Eiffel Tower, France’s most visited monument. Officers pulled red-and-white police tape across a bridge leading over the Seine River to the monument. Officers stood guard.

Bomb experts combed through the 324-meter (1,063-foot) tower and found nothing unusual, the Paris police headquarters said. Tourists were let back inside about two hours after the structure was emptied. Jean Dupeu, a 74-year-old Paris retiree, had planned to go to dinner in the tower but found himself looking for another restaurant. “It’s surely a bad joke,” he said of the threat, adding, “Now is not a good time.”

National Police Chief Frederic Pechenard said last week that authorities suspect al-Qaida’s North African branch of plotting a bomb attack on a crowded location in France. His warning came after al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, or AQIM, claimed responsibility for the Sept. 16 abduction of five French nationals and two Africans in northern Niger.

The French parliament voted this month to ban burqa-style Islamic veils in France, a subject that has prompted warnings by AQIM. Counterterrorism officials say that is just one of several factors contributing to the heightened threat.

At the Eiffel Tower, an anonymous caller called in a warning to firefighters, the Paris police headquarters said. The company that runs the monument asked police to evacuate it. Police responded to a similar false alert at the tower on Sept. 14, also following a phone threat. On Monday, the bustling Saint Lazare train station in Paris was briefly evacuated and searched.

As soon as the latest bomb alert ended, huge lines of eager tourists immediately formed under the tower. Mike Yore, 43, of Orlando, Florida, was among those waiting in line at the 121-year-old iron monument. “There’s no bomb that can blow this thing up,” he said. – Hey Mike, ever heard of Hiroshima or 9/11, dumbass?! – SJH

ABC News: Eiffel Tower Evacuated

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: Ever notice how all of these shadowy “intelligence” experts hide behind the veil of anonymity? Who are they and how can their statements be legitimately verified? Based on the events leading up to the alleged “terrorist” attacks such as 9/11 in New York, London and Madrid, this is beginning to indicate a false flag attack will occur very soon. It’s not a matter of when, but where… Is Paris next? – SJH
