HOW THE UN IS CONFISCATING AMERICAN HOMES AND CONTROLING ALL FOOD AND ENERGY


In times of crises, the government has proven, time and time again, that it cannot be counted on to adequately protect the American people. As the American people have not prepared for the coming dark days, they will be vulnerable to starvation, dehydration, cholera, pandemics and attacks from resource-deficient looters. Will the government be there to save them? History has already answered this question in the negative. Events such as Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy, L.A. riots, and the Ferguson riots have repeatedly demonstrated that when trouble comes, the American people will be on their own.

When disaster strikes, it will take less than 24 hours until grocery stores are empty, the utilities are down and neighbors begin to prey upon neighbors.

Obama Criminalizes Independence

Certainly, no government can be all things to all people. Subsequently, the government should be in the business of encouraging its citizens to be independent. However, the Obama administration has taken the opposite approach. Instead of the government empowering the people to be self-sufficient, this administration is punishing independence and self-sufficiency.
Citation:


DHS actually published a "Right Wing Extremism Manual" which demonizes and targets normal citizens with labels such as "preppers" and have further defined the act of becoming self-sufficient as being the actions of a domestic terrorist. It is ironic that DHS is the one who has ordered millions of FEMA caskets, 2700 armored personnel carriers and 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition. Yet, it is only the wholly independent people, only desiring to be left alone by their government, are labeled as domestic terrorists.



America Is Witnessing the Manifestation of Agenda 21

Any aware person knows that Agenda 21 is predicated on eliminating private property ownership and keeping all people within the "system." Drinking raw milk, engaging in off the grid living, and heating your home with a wood stove are forbidden. All of these prohibitions and more are presently encircling America as the Agenda 21 noose is tightening around collective necks.

Many unaware Americans still mistakenly believe that they have dominion over their lives and personal choices. These same people mistakenly believe that the government does not care if you want to live independently of their corporate cronies who own the utilities. They want you in their system so they can continue to exploit your resources for their benefit. Take the case of Robin Speronis who tried opting for renewable non-grid tied power and utilize environmentally friendly composting toilets and his own self-sufficient water supply. If one commits these acts in Florida, that person could go to jail. 

Speronis lived off the grid, independent of Cape Coral's (Florida) water and electric utilities. Not to be denied the revenue to them owed the subjects of Florida, the utilities took Speronis to court and the judge ruled this off-the-grid living was illegal last week. The judge labeled the Speronis home as being "unsanitary" and cited the International Property Maintenance Code in the ruling. Wikipedia further exposes the fact that the International Property Maintenance Code derives its authority from Agenda 21 and ICLEI and that this "regulation" bootstraps its authority into the following domains.
  • International Building Code
  • International Residential Code
  • International Fire Code
  • International Plumbing Code
  • International Mechanical Code
  • International Wildland Urban Interface Code
  • International Existing Building Code
  • International Property Maintenance Code
  • International Private Sewage Disposal Code
  • International Zoning Code
  • International Green Construction Code…
Subsequently, we have an American judge, in Florida, citing UN mandate to forcibly evict an American citizen of their property and nullify their Fifth Amendment Rights. Speronis also faces jail time for noncompliance with international law.

If you read nothing else in this article, I strongly suggest you heed this warning. In two years, local and state governments will have the ability to begin to seize individual property for the failure to meet code, usually in the area of energy efficiency and international code compliance. In the near future if one cannot meet the burden of upgrading their older homes into meeting the standards related energy compliance, by United Nations standards, one could have their home confiscated without any compensation.

More Agenda 21 Insanity

The latest round of Agenda 21 insanity is coming from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA has recently imposed new heating rules as of last year and the date of enforcement has long last arrived.

The insane application of Agenda 21 policies knows no bounds when it comes to the EPA. Also under the auspices of the International Property Maintenance Code, the EPA has introduced new standards for wood stoves which dramatically reduces the amount of fine particle emissions
for any wood stove sold in 2015. The emissions must be reduced by 33% with more reductions scheduled for 2019.


At issue is the unsubstantiated claim that the EPA is making that if the use of wood stoves are reduced, the health of the residents will increase. Yet, the EPA does not offer any peer-reviewed research, which has been replicated, as proof of this bogus claim. Are we just supposed to take their word for it? We might as well face the fact that the EPA is controlled by ICLEI and their United Nations puppet masters.

Who Are the Real Terrorists?

We are under attack from the skies and through the poisoning of our air through massive chemical spraying complete with Alzheimer's and dementia causing aluminum sulfate and cancer causing bariumFukushima radiationCorexit spraying and the resulting toxic rain from the Gulf oil spill is running rampant over our country and not one ounce of mainstream media coverage is afforded to these dangers. Prevention and remediation from these dangers, caused by governmental indifference or complicity, are not put into place by our present government.

Our water is being systematically removed from the country by Nestle, and our water tables are being systematically compromised by environmental toxins and of course many Americans are consuming water permeated with IQ-lowering rocket fuel (i.e. fluoride).

Americans are now in the midst of being subjected to the death panels of Obama care in which citizens over the age of 70 are officially referred to as "units" and are targeted for comfort care but not given life saving measures. Under these conditions is it really in our best interest to remain "in the system"?

This is an undeniable, unmitigated and naked version of Eugenics cast in the same flavor as that practiced by Margaret Sanger, Joseph Stalin, and Adolph Hitler and when Americans try to extricate themselves from these assaults upon their liberties and their health, they are increasingly marginalized, and prosecuted.

Conclusion

Who's the real terrorist here? Why is the Obama administration embracing international mandates which criminalizes independent behavior and choices in violation of our Fifth Amendment rights?

If you have the courage to really answer these questions, I would suggest you dig into world history and read about the Holodomor and discover the real motivation behind forced compliance which results in total dependence on the government for life-sustaining services should become readily apparent.

GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL TYRANNY

The White House

Office of the Press Secretary

For Immediate Release
March 19, 2015

EXECUTIVE ORDER -- PLANNING FOR FEDERAL SUSTAINABILITY IN THE NEXT DECADE

EXECUTIVE ORDER
   
- - - - - - -
   
PLANNING FOR FEDERAL SUSTAINABILITY IN THE NEXT DECADE
  

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to maintain Federal leadership in sustainability and greenhouse gas emission reductions, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. Executive departments and agencies (agencies) have been among our Nation's leaders as the United States works to build a clean energy economy that will sustain our prosperity and the health of our people and our environment for generations to come. Federal leadership in energy, environmental water, fleet, buildings, and acquisition management will continue to drive national greenhouse gas reductions and support preparations for the impacts of climate change. Through a combination of more efficient Federal operations such as those outlined in this Executive Order (order), we have the opportunity to reduce agency direct greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40 percent over the next decade while at the same time fostering innovation, reducing spending, and strengthening the communities in which our Federal facilities operate.

It therefore continues to be the policy of the United States that agencies shall increase efficiency and improve their environmental performance. Improved environmental performance will help us protect our planet for future generations and save taxpayer dollars through avoided energy costs and increased efficiency, while also making Federal facilities more resilient. To improve environmental performance and Federal sustainability, priority should first be placed on reducing energy use and cost, then on finding renewable or alternative energy solutions. Pursuing clean sources of energy will improve energy and water security, while ensuring that Federal facilities will continue to meet mission requirements and lead by example. Employing this strategy for the next decade calls for expanded and updated Federal environmental performance goals with a clear overarching objective of reducing greenhouse gas emissions across Federal operations and the Federal supply chain.

Sec. 2. Agency Greenhouse Gas Emission Reductions. In implementing the policy set forth in section 1 of this order, the head of each agency shall, within 90 days of the date of this order, propose to the Chair of the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) and the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) percentage reduction targets for agency-wide reductions of scope 1 and 2 and scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions in absolute terms by the end of fiscal year 2025 relative to a fiscal year 2008 baseline. Where appropriate, the target shall exclude direct emissions from excluded vehicles and equipment and from electric power produced and sold commercially to other parties as the primary business of the agency. The proposed targets shall be subject to the review and approval of the Chair of CEQ in coordination with the Director of OMB under section 4(b) of this order.

Executive Order – Establishing a Federal Flood Risk Management Standard and a Process for Further Soliciting and Considering Stakeholder Input

EXECUTIVE ORDER
- - - - - - -
ESTABLISHING A FEDERAL FLOOD RISK MANAGEMENT STANDARD AND A PROCESS FOR FURTHER SOLICITING AND CONSIDERING STAKEHOLDER INPUT


By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to improve the Nation's resilience to current and future flood risk, I hereby direct the following:

Section 1. Policy. It is the policy of the United States to improve the resilience of communities and Federal assets against the impacts of flooding. These impacts are anticipated to increase over time due to the effects of climate change and other threats. Losses caused by flooding affect the environment, our economic prosperity, and public health and safety, each of which affects our national security.

The Federal Government must take action, informed by the best-available and actionable science, to improve the Nation's preparedness and resilience against flooding. Executive Order 11988 of May 24, 1977 (Floodplain Management), requires executive departments and agencies (agencies) to avoid, to the extent possible, the long- and short-term adverse impacts associated with the occupancy and modification of floodplains and to avoid direct or indirect support of floodplain development wherever there is a practicable alternative. The Federal Government has developed processes for evaluating the impacts of Federal actions in or affecting floodplains to implement Executive Order 11988.

As part of a national policy on resilience and risk reduction consistent with my Climate Action Plan, the National Security Council staff coordinated an interagency effort to create a new flood risk reduction standard for federally funded projects. The views of Governors, mayors, and other stakeholders were solicited and considered as efforts were made to establish a new flood risk reduction standard for federally funded projects. The result of these efforts is the Federal Flood Risk Management Standard (Standard), a flexible framework to increase resilience against flooding and help preserve the natural values of floodplains. Incorporating this Standard will ensure that agencies expand management from the current base flood level to a higher vertical elevation and corresponding horizontal floodplain to address current and future flood risk and ensure that projects funded with taxpayer dollars last as long as intended.

This order establishes the Standard and sets forth a process for further solicitation and consideration of public input, including from Governors, mayors, and other stakeholders, prior to implementation of the Standard.

BREAKING: OBAMA TEAMS UP WITH UN, ANNOUNCES MASSIVE EXECUTIVE ORDERS ... SPREAD THIS EVERYWHERE 


By this point in Barack Obama’s presidency, are we really surprised?

Now the president is attempting to bypass Congress again and use the United Nations to force the United States to follow controversial regulations addressing the supposed problem of climate change.

Specifically, Obama formally submitted a plan to the United Nations that America would cut emissions by 26 to 28 percent over the next ten years.

He has done this hoping his executive action will pave the way toward the passing of a global agreement this December in Paris that will bind nations to take measures that will allegedly head off further climate change.

He has done this as part of a pledge he made to China’s President Xi Jinping in November 2014 in which Xi promised that China, too, would cut emissions by 2030.

Most importantly, Obama has done this knowing full well that the Republican-led Congress would never allow such a deal to become the law of the land.

Obama’s submission includes many controversial measures that have been criticized previously as too much of an economic burden on business, industry and local communities.

For example, though coal remains a plentiful source of power, Obama hopes to freeze construction of new coal-fired power plants. Another example is a requirement to increase drastically the gas mileage of automobiles that will undoubtedly add to manufacturing costs passed on to the consumer.

These and other Draconian changes are to be implemented within the next two years before Obama’s presidency ends. This reflects Obama’s near monomaniacal focus on leaving a legacy, this time related to eliminating the causes of climate change.

Republicans have called similar measures a “war on coal” and point out Obama’s continued use of executive authority to circumvent the checks and balances between the executive and legislative branches that are a hallmark of the American government.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell also pointed out that “two-thirds of the U.S. federal government hasn’t even signed off” on the plan and “13 states have already pledged to fight it.”

The glimmer of hope here is that uncooperative U.N. members may make a December agreement impossible. The deadline for countries to submit their plans to stop climate change was March 31. It is now April and major polluters, such as Brazil, India, Russia and China, may not turn in their reports until October. As nations delay, an agreement in December seems less likely.

In the end, the procrastination of nations may be what stymies Obama’s latest move to use the United Nations to force new environmental regulations down the throats of Americans (H/T The New York Times).
We’ll take it. Whatever works.

POPULATION CONTROL IN THE NAME OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

WE ARE LOOKING AT THE FIRST HUMAN MADE EXTINCTION  – ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENTIST

A new study published in the magazine 'Science' claims that humans are pushing the last boundaries the planet has in making life habitable, already speeding past limits for climate change and.

New documentary exposes radical agenda, says Steven Mosher

Contact: Anne Roback Morse, Population Research Institute, 540-660-2733, anne@pop.org 

FRONT ROYAL, Va., March 27, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ -- "It's Easy Being Green When You Have No Choice," a controversial new documentary, exposes how our world today is being influenced to believe that humans are responsible for the assured destruction of the world by "climate change." The proffered solution to such assured destruction is something called "sustainable development."

But "sustainable development" is really nothing more than a tool, inspired by communist ideals, to indoctrinate us to accept a highly-controlled society in which human activity is closely monitored in the name of preserving the planet.

In the documentary, population control expert Steven Mosher explains the lengths to which the environmental movement will go to normalize population control as a means to save the planet. In reality, population control helps the environmentalists achieve their ultimate goal - total control of global resources—including the ultimate source: human beings.

Mosher says, "Ask the population controllers what—in the name of sustainable development or in the name of reducing the emission of greenhouse gasses—are they prepared to do? The answer? They're prepared to do anything: they're prepared to arrest women for the crime of being pregnant, give them Caesarean section abortions and sterilize them for life. This is happening in China as we speak."

"One of the tools that they use very successfully, is sexualizing children—teaching them all about the mechanics of sex and nothing about the higher purpose of the sexual act —taking sex out of the context of marriage, out of the context of having children, and reducing it to an animal act.

"Why do they do this? Because sexualizing children helps to reduce the population because there are lots of young people who grow up thinking, 'I'm really not interested in marrying and if I do, I'm not interested in having children' because the emphasis is entirely on seeking pleasure out of the sexual act and not in having children. Children are a form of pollution, children are carbon-emitters."

About the Author: Steven W. Mosher is an internationally recognized authority on China and population issues, as well as an acclaimed author and speaker. He has worked tirelessly since 1979 to fight coercive population control programs and has helped hundreds of thousands of women and families worldwide over the years. He has appeared numerous times before Congress as an expert in world population, China, and human rights abuses He has also made TV appearances on Good Morning America, 60 Minutes, The Today Show, 20/20, FOX and CNN news, as well as being a regular guest on talk radio shows across the nation.

[WATCH] UNITED NATIONS BAGHEAD CLIMATE OFFICIAL: “WE SHOULD MAKE EVERY EFFORT” TO DECREASE WORLD POPULATION.

By AmyElizabeth -
Apr 6, 2015



Maybe She should start with herself and the United Nations.

Climate One founder Greg Dalton and the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) Christiana Figueres, held a discussion in 2013 on the role of women in fighting Global Warming.

During the interview Secretary Figueres stated, We should should “make every effort,” to reduce the world’s population in an effort to fight Climate Change:
Citation:


DALTON: A related issue is fertility rates in population. A lot of people in energy and environmental circles don’t wanna go near that because it’s politically charged. It’s not their issue. But isn’t it true that stopping the rise of the population would be one of the biggest levers and driving the rise of green house gases?

FIGUERES: I mean we all know that we expect nine billion, right, by 2050. So, yes, obviously less people would exert less pressure on the natural resources.

DALTON: So is nine billion a forgone conclusion? That’s like baked in, done, no way to change that?

FIGUERES: Well there again, there is pressure in the system to go toward that; we can definitely change those, right? We can definitely change those numbers and really should make every effort to change those numbers because we are already, today, already exceeding the planet’s planetary carrying capacity, today. To say nothing of adding more population that is really going to overextend our capacity.

So yes we should do everything possible. But we cannot fall into the very simplistic opinion of saying just by curtailing population then we’ve solved the problem. It is not either/or, it is an and/also.

NAVY DELIVERS "A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE" ON EARTH DAY

Story Number: NNS150410-05Release Date: 4/10/2015 9:28:00 AM 

From Chief of Naval Operations Energy and Environmental Readiness Division Public Affairs


140418-N-IU636-047 PEARL HARBOR (April 20, 2014) Katie Ramirez, left, energy installation manager at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, speaks to patrons on water saving methods at the Pearl Harbor Navy Exchange Earth Day Expo: Partnering for a Greener Future on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. Earth Day serves as a reminder of the importance of environmental protection and community engagement and has been celebrated nationally since 1970. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Johans Chavarro/Released)

WASHINGTON, D.C. (NNS) -- Navy commands are participating in events and activities that celebrate Earth Day throughout the month of April.

The Navy's 2015 theme for Earth Day, "A Sustainable Future Begins with You," underscores the ripple effect of each individual's actions that benefit the environment and help ensure a viable planet for generations to come. The theme was announced via naval message on 16 March.

"I encourage each of you to take action to protect and preserve," said Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus in the message. "As you have done on previous Earth Days, participate in a recycling program, or a beach or neighborhood cleanup. Maintain and enhance your efforts to reduce waste and use energy wisely. Whatever action you take, remember that local efforts like yours help us to ensure we have the resources we need to continue our global mission into the future." = All lies to enslave them all under a spiritual global tyranny and a false peace.
"A Sustainable Future Begins with You", double speak meaning that the navy/military will be use by the global elite to accomplish their kabbalistic mission to kill and to enslave the entire humanity, under Agenda 21. Earth Days is the worship of Mother Earth, a pagan goddess. They've reject the God Almighty to worship the elements, the creation and demons. The global satanic elite are all agents of Lucifer and these are the ones who use fables and lies to be able to bring in this world their god Abaddon.

We are now at a turning point with CERN, this machine who will open the key of pit. Learn more about CERN, you will see that this is the most evil machine is never exit. If you read Revelation 6 and 9, all these cosmic events will have a big impact on the earth and the second sky. Destruction and chaos are at the door, and they know it. Next September will be the timeline were everything will change. The life as we know it will be thing of the past. Takes a look of all the events who will take place in this year 2015, in September. Be sure to be protect by the blood of Christ and trust Him only.

The fallen ones are coming back. The Sustainable future is first the extermination of thousands of peoples, so you will see a purge in all countries to exterminate all the ones who don't want to submit to this evil New World Order. This is were the Nato and all military groups will play a key role, but they make them believe it's for National Security, Peace and Security.  


Participating naval commands are finding fun and unique ways to observe Earth Day and engage local communities, including hosting tree plantings, dumpster dives, shore and base cleanups, recycling demonstrations and other environmentally focused exhibits and activities. Observances are occurring throughout the U.S. and in areas as diverse as Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti; NSA Naples, Italy and U.S. Naval Hospital Okinawa in Japan.

"The Navy does our part to protect natural ecosystems year-round as we perform our global mission, and we continue to be a world leader in funding marine mammal research," said Rear Adm. Kevin Slates, director of the Chief of Naval Operations Energy and Environmental Readiness Division (OPNAV N45). "Becoming more energy efficient at sea and ashore helps us perform our mission more effectively, but it also makes our activities more sustainable. Earth Day gives us the opportunity to celebrate those successes and inform others about what we're doing."

This year marks the 45th anniversary of Earth Day. Former U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin founded Earth Day in 1970 to promote community engagement and practices of environmental stewardship around the world.

Air pollution. Big joke and lie. They want to remove the right to drive our car, so they can control all of us more closely. Air pollution??? There's war and military exercises in many countries, on sea, radiation from Fukushima, etc. Everything is now contaminated and they now push for air quality strategy. An other strategy to remove our freedom in the name of climate change.

The city of Zurich ranks first among 23 major European cities for its efforts to fight air pollution, the European Environmental Bureau (EEB) said on Tuesday.

The bureau hailed Switzerland’s largest city for its commitment to cut pollution from vehicles, its promotion of cleaner forms of transport and for its low levels of pollution.

The “Sootfree Cities” ranking put Zurich ahead of Copenhagen, Vienna, Stockholm and Berlin.

Luxembourg, with one of the highest percentages of car users in the European Union, got the worst evaluation, just ahead of Lisbon and Rome.

The “comprehensive air quality strategy” of Zurich, with a population of 400,000 in the city and 1.3 million people in the metropolitan area, has made it the ranking’s winner this year, the EEB said.

The bureau noted that in Zurich and in runner-up city Copenhagen the number of cars has been substantially cut and there are restrictions on highly polluting vehicles such as diesel cars, trucks and construction machines.

“At the same time, cleaner forms of transport, such as public transport, cycling and walking have been greatly expanded,” it said.
“Zurich has already progressed well beyond the EU’s norms,” Arne Fellermann, transport officer at BUND, Friends of the Earth Germany, which helped develop the ranking, said in a statement.

But Fellermann noted that 90 percent of Europeans living in cities are still breathing unhealthy air.

Air pollution causes nearly half a million premature deaths each year in the EU and the average life expectancy of residents in the most polluted cities is reduced by two years as a result, the EEB said.

The worst areas have high concentrations of particulate matter (largely produced by diesel cars), nitrogen dioxide and ozone, the bureau said.

The ‘Sootfree Cities’ ranking evaluated 23 of Europe’s cities in nine transport-related categories, including the promotion of sustainable transport, traffic management, public procurement and economic incentives, such as congestion charges and parking.

While Zurich is well below the EU’s air quality limits, it currently fails to meet the “far stricter” Swiss standards, the EEB said.
The bureau called for greater effort to cut pollution in Europe’s biggest cities.

“The EU must be more ambitious if it wants to prevent repeats of last week’s deadly smog,” EEB spokeswoman Louise Duprez said, referring to the recent high pollution levels in Paris and other cities.

EARTH DAY 2015



http://www.earthday.org/

Just 3 days before they satanic ritual to their Lady of the Earth and Sky "
Their ceremonies are for the regeneration of Mother Earth". Are they keeping the energy for more power "the sky and the earth and the unity of all life"? Are you spiritually protect by the Holy Spirit of God?
We have been fool since the beginning! During the time they worship their goddess and demons, we are about to lose all our freedom and rights under a tyrannical kingdom who believe to be the saints and the gods of this world. This is the rise of Apollyon and demons.

LET'S ALL CELEBRATE 'EARTH IS FOR PEOPLE DAY'



To bring peoples in harmony with the Mother Earth. Pagan ritual. Using the threat and lies of the UN one world government to bring peoples in a wrong direction. We have to turn our back to the Creator who create all things. 

The Earth Day slogan that "people are pollution" is so wrong

Contact: Anne Morse, Media Coordinator, Population Research Institute, 540-660-2733, anne@pop.org 

FRONT ROYAL, Va., April 17, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Population Research Institute is hosting an "Earth is for People Day" event to celebrate people and humanity's relationship to the environment. The president of PRI, Steven Mosher, will be answering questions on-line and spreading the message that protecting the environment should mean protecting people as well. The event will be on Earth Day at 10am EST and can be accessed here: www.facebook.com/events/375309469320756

"Human beings are not the enemy of the environment, but are the earth's ultimate resource. In fact, they are the only resource that can protect other resources," Steven Mosher stated. "And yet they are being wantonly destroyed by population control programs—all in the name of protecting the environment that they are an intimate and integral part of."

Women and families are being abused in the name of protecting the environment. The Population Research Institute has documented and exposed coercive population control programs in China, India, and numerous other countries around the globe.

PRI President Steven Mosher explains: "People are the world's greatest resource. Pollution is caused by human behavior, not by human births. A child may grow up to kill endangered species, or may grow up to be a biologist. Either way, coercing the child's mother to accept contraception or forcing her to abort is an unjustifiable human rights violation. Far too often, the most vulnerable have their human rights trampled in the name of the environment."

"Being good stewards of the planet's resources should not mean waging a war on women's fertility," says Mosher, an eyewitness to forced abortions and forced sterilizations in China. "One of the great ironies of this century is the war on mothers in the name of protecting Mother Earth."

Steven Mosher has appeared numerous times before Congress as an expert on world population, China, and human rights abuses.

Steven Mosher will be available for interviews surrounding Earth Day.

FORUM CONSIDERS BERING STRAIT CROSSING


Only Jesus is the World Bridge and can save your soul. This is just an other heresy of the UFP organization and church connect to Roman Empire.






UPF is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization and all donations are tax deductible in the United States.

Written by Dr. William Selig, Deputy Director, Office of Peace and Security Affairs-Washington, DC

Wednesday, March 25, 2015

On September 12, 2005, at the inauguration of the UPF, Dr. Sun Myung Moon called for the construction of a “World Peace King Bridge Tunnel,” a 52-mile link between Alaska and Russia. Dr. Moon said this passage “will allow people to travel on land from Africa’s Cape of Good Hope to Santiago, Chile, and from London to New York, across the Bering Strait, connecting the world as a single community.” Anticipating the technological and economic challenges, he said, “Some may doubt such a project can be completed, but where there is a will, there is always a way—especially if it is the will of God.”

On the occasion of the upcoming 10th anniversary of Dr. Moon’s proposal and the founding of the UPF, the Washington, D.C. Office of Peace and Security Affairs brought together on March 25, 2015 a select group of Ambassadors for Peace and Unificationists to examine the genesis, history, and most significantly, the current status of this visionary proposal.

The World Peace King Bridge Tunnel project and an International Peace Highway / Railway System continue to be discussed by people in many of the nations most immediately affected, such as Russia and China, as well as multinational corporations and NGOs. This report endeavors to summarize some of the current activities and progress surrounding one of the boldest overtures for peace championed by UPF Founder Dr. Moon.


Dr. Antonio Betancourt, Director, Office of Peace and Security Affairs, UPF International, Washington, D.C. — Both China and Russia announced broad plans to eventually undertake the vision of an international network to connect the nations of the world. Specifically, in May 2014, China announced a proposal to build a 6,000 mile-long high-speed rail line from China's northeast to the United States. It would include a tunnel under the Bering Strait and connect to Canada, and by extension to the United States and all of Central and South America.

Russia has understood the enormous implications of such a project and made a number of announcements in recent years. Just this month, at a meeting of the Russian Academy of Science, the head of Russian Railways, Vladimir Yakunin, presented the idea for the Trans-Eurasian Belt Development (TEPR). Seen as a powerful and versatile transportation corridor, it would join with other networks and reach from the Atlantic to the Pacific, via the heart of Siberia and the Far East. Yakunin said, “The idea is that basing on the new technology of high-speed rail transport, we can build a new railway near the Trans-Siberian Railway with the opportunity to go to Chukotka and Bering Strait and then to the American continent.”

With the recent initiatives of China regarding the New Silk Road and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), along with the various initiatives of the other BRICS nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa), we are witnessing the historic emergence of an alternative to the geopolitical game of each against all. In this new paradigm, the application of the fruits of human ingenuity are being applied to realize for all participating nations the mutual benefits of a commitment to a policy of large-scale infrastructure development. But, this can be taken even further. 

To this effect, in September 2013, Chinese President Xi Jinping made the first public declaration of China’s commitment to a policy of developing the “New Silk Road”, a rail network of trade and development corridors (which was soon augmented to include the “New Maritime Silk Road”) that unites the Asian and European continents in a common development bloc, emphasizing it as a “grand cause benefiting people in regional countries along the route.” Xi has gone on to characterize this as a “win-win” policy for every nation involved and has been diligent in securing relationships with each and every nation open to embracing this vision.   

This idea was raised to a broadened scope of intensity and potential with the annual meeting of the BRICS nations in July 2014 which, among other things, laid the foundation for the establishment of the BRICS Development Bank, intended to finance large-scale infrastructure projects across the globe. These efforts were furthered by the solidification of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) in 2014 (characterized by many as a positive alternative to the IMF, World Bank, and ADB), that was formally established in Beijing in October, capitalized with an initial $100 billion to finance infrastructure projects throughout Asia. Xi went on to offer to President Obama and the United States an open invitation to join the AIIB in this grand vision at the 2014 APEC summit.  

What we are witnessing as emerging with China, and the BRICS nations more broadly, is only the tip of the spear of what could emerge as a new paradigm for humankind. The International Peace Highway/Rail System has the potential to truly unite all the nations of the world in a common mission with the potential of equal benefit to all

Project Concerns

Dr. Mark P. Barry, Senior Advisor, Office of Peace and Security Affairs, UPF International, Washington, D.C., presented a paper on “Advancing the Bering Strait Tunnel Project in the United States and Canada.” He wrote: 

The most common refrain one hears about a proposed Bering Strait project is not that it is technologically unfeasible to construct a tunnel – because it is feasible – but that it is prohibitively expensive with insufficient economic return in a very under-populated area. Consider the following:
  1. The tunnel would connect several continents, even hemispheres, not just two islands or an island with the mainland: North and South America (the Americas or Western Hemisphere) with Europe and Asia (Eurasia). This is far more significant than connecting Europe with an island which was very accessible without the Channel tunnel (much of the debate over the Chunnel was more about keeping Britain separate from Europe rather than the economics of the project). Thus, the frequently-made Chunnel comparison is in fact not very relevant.
  2. The requirement for the extensive infrastructure to access a Bering Strait tunnel from both continents exists no matter what, but creation of access routes to the tunnel also serves to open the currently isolated areas of the far north of North America and the Russian Far East. The alternative is no access and no development, which – over the long run – is not economically appealing.
  3. More importantly, the tunnel must be viewed as a passage point between the continents, rather than merely a means of local development for areas with small populations. The tunnel would create the linkage of a vast interior transport network that would make possible commercial (including passenger) rail transport from cities such as Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and Mexico City to Moscow, Beijing, Mumbai, Berlin, Paris, London, etc.
  4. A Bering Strait rail tunnel would have to compete against the alternatives, mainly, ocean-going shipping. Yet, there are countries and vast regions which are far from any ports but could have direct rail access to North America via a Bering Strait crossing. In the end, a great deal of economic stimulus over the long run would result from that.
  5. The projected costs of the project seem prohibitively large, but only when seen in isolation. Governments spend staggering sums with zero, or negative, economic returns. The current annual U.S. military budget is in excess of $685 billion (and over $1.1 trillion has been spent since 2001 fighting wars in Afghanistan and Iraq). One may ask where is the economic payoff in that, yet it is considered necessary for America’s security. The issue is really one of world vision and political will, rather than simply a cost/benefit analysis. Clearly, the Bering Strait project is about much more than economics. It can be articulated as a global investment in peace and mutual security that would bring clear-cut long-term benefits at a cost certainly far less than conducting wars to maintain security.
(from Mark P. Barry, “Advancing the Bering Strait Tunnel Project in the United States and Canada," Journal of Peace Studies, June 2012)

Dr. William Selig, Forum moderator and Deputy Director, OPSA - reviewed the project’s timeline: 
  • November 10, 1981 - The development of an international highway was suggested by Dr. Moon at an International Conference on the Unity of the Sciences (ICUS) attended by Nobel Prize winners and other scientists. For the first stage of this ambitious project, he proposed an East Asian highway starting from China and going down the Korean Peninsula, through an underwater tunnel to Japan's Kyushu Island and north to Hokkaido Island.
  • February 2, 1990 - At the second meeting of the Summit Council for World Peace, Dr. Moon spoke of the importance of this project and of the unique opportunity provided through President Mikhail Gorbachev's implementation of glasnost.
  • September 12, 2005 - At the inauguration of the UPF, Rev. Moon called for the construction of a “World Peace King Bridge Tunnel,” a 52-mile link to connect East and West, the Americas and Asia.
  • January 2008 - The Foundation for Peace and Unification (FPU) sponsored an international thesis competition on the topic, “The Significance of the Bering Strait Project and the Korea-Japan Tunnel Project from a Providential Viewpoint and Ways to Pursue These Two Projects.” Dr. Michael Mickler, Professor of Church History at the Unification Theological Seminary, won second prize for “Vital Missing Links: The Bering Strait and Korea-Japan Tunnel Projects in the Context of an Emerging Global Transportation Network.”
  • June 18, 2009 - The Bering Strait International Ideas Competition was established. The first-place winner was submitted by Taller 301, an architecture firm based in Bogota, Colombia. They proposed the creation of a series of artificial islands by dredging and land reclamation at the narrowest point between the Chukchi Peninsula, Russia and the Cape of Prince of Wales, Alaska — a distance of about 52 miles.
Glenn Strait, Senior editor of World and I: Innovative Approaches to Peace, a publication of the Universal Peace Federation, was on the staff of the International Conference on the Unity of Sciences in 1981 and attended the seminal event when Dr. Moon announced this unique initiative for peace. Booklets, maps and audio-visual materials were produced to explain the details. A mile on both sides of a “corridor” was envisioned that would be allocated as a Free Economic Zone (FEZ) in which trade and commerce companies would be taxed lightly or not at all. The original vision included the tunnel between Korea and Japan. In the ensuing years, a Japanese group did substantial surveying and even began pilot tunnels. Another part of Dr. Moon’s strategy regarded the connection between Japan and Korea which would then travel north from South Korea to North Korea, so it had an important component that encouraged greater interaction between the nations.

Strait also reported on two articles that the World & I published about the Bering Strait tunnel and railway project. Craig Burroughs, chairman of BXB Corporation and director of Alaska’s Interhemispheric Bering Strait Tunnel & Rail Group, reported that “preliminary investigations of the engineering feasibility and estimated costs of constructing the Bering Strait crossing have been very encouraging. The concept of building a tunnel system under the strait has obvious advantages over alternative but entirely unproven designs to build a huge bridge structure above the surface.” This plan was the subject of program on the Discovery Channel.

“Burroughs is a railroad man,” said Strait, “so his article focused on railroads as a sort of primary driver of this venture.” He mentioned several interesting points. The tunnel that would go under the Bering Strait would have these two islands that are conveniently located in the middle, sort of a resting place there between the two. They are named Little Diomede (USA) and Big Diomede (Russia). The rocks down below are made of granite. Granite chips are what is best for making road beds for railways so granite that is dug out could be used as roadbed for the rails across the tundra over Alaska. Eventually there would be three tunnels under the Bering Strait — for the trains, services, mechanical support systems, pipeline. The tunnel would extend 52 miles across the Bering Strait so there would be three tunnel systems with those two islands in the middle. Tunnels of comparable length have been dug in Japan and under the Alps.

Although Dr. Moon's original vision called for a highway traversing the whole world, Burroughs believes rails would be more efficient. Autos can be placed on the railcars. There would be much less disruption of the permafrost if a layer of granite rock is placed over it and a railroad built as opposed to paving and widening the roads for cars. New cities would be built along the corridor on each side. Giving the land to the railroads would be an incentive for them to build railroads. A whole new system of management would have to be created according to Burroughs.

In an article by Gary A. Spanovich, executive director of the Wholistic Peace Institute, the focus is on the spiritual side of a visionary project and how it can stand as a substantial symbol of peace. Spanovich calls the Bering Strait project “a world symbol for peace.” He believes that the 21st-century and its worldwide problems require worldwide solutions. “There are no national boundaries to global warming, the depletion of fresh water, or the end of peak oil: We must solve these problems as if we are one interdependent whole – which we are.” By the year 2100, the world’s population will be 10 billion or more. This will have direct impact on the availability of fresh water as well as energy supplies and reserves, so it may come to the point that a Bering Strait connection will be “more than a symbol of world peace. It could be also the reason that humanity survives in the face of mounting crises of resource depletion and environmental degradation. If we consider the huge minerals and other natural resources in Alaska and Russia, along with the market needs of Europe, Africa, Asia, North and South America, it becomes clear that this project may preserve our civilization not only by showing us how to work together but also by providing needed resources.”

Dr. Selig began the discussion on how to attract other spiritually-based organizations as well as faith-based and community organizations and make them aware of the significance of this project. Selig said, “If I were an architect, I would view this project from a scientific and technical perspective, but as a spiritually-based person, how can we make the world more aware of this project’s importance?"

In terms of getting groups to buy-in, Glenn Strait suggested focusing on the environmental footprint argument — maritime shipping vs. rail and truck modes of freight transport. Maritime shipping contributes more carbon emission to the atmosphere while rail usage is more fuel efficient. There is also the issue of long-distance travel because the great circle route over the North Pole is shorter than shipping routes from China to the Americas. From Beijing to Chicago is about 11,000 miles but to go through the Bering Strait by rail is about 6500 miles. The shorter distance translates into economic savings. Also the materials would be brought into the center of the continent instead of to a port city.

Prof. Diane Falk, who served 28 years as director of The World & I magazine’s research department, regards the “World Peace King Bridge Tunnel,” as an important interfaith project, something to which everyone can connect. This is tremendously beneficial to everyone, bringing traditions together, for travel, for connection, interfaith, and with intercultural value and benefits to all faith traditions. 

Dr. Betancourt believes the financing and building of an International Peace Highway / Railway System will be done by the Chinese. According to the New York Times (Jan. 12, 2015), China is pursing a number of mega-projects with multibillion-dollar price tags — the world’s largest bridge, the biggest airport, the longest gas pipeline — and the recently announced plan to build the world’s longest underwater tunnel between two port cities in China (Dalian to Yantai) a distance of about 75 miles at a cost of about $35 billion. Plans have been announced to build an “international railway” that would link China to the United States by digging under the Bering Strait and creating a tunnel between Russia and Alaska.

Louise Strait, Coauthor, Citizens Proposal for a Border between Israel and Palestine, expressed concerns about the motivations of an aggressive power, such as Russia. At this point, she said,“we should be glad that China worships the dollar instead of political ideology.”

Dr. Betancourt recently attended a program hosted by the Lyndon LaRouche organization. Mrs. Helga LaRouche, founder of the Schiller Institute, gave a report on the Bering Strait Tunnel project. The organization is actively promoting the enterprise as a “key element to efficiently connect the Eurasian economic engine with the economic engines of the Americas, as a transportation backbone for world development.” Mrs. LaRouche was a driving force to convince China to include discussions about the Bering Strait project in last year’s BRICS meetings held July 14-16, 2014 in Brazil. 

The leaders of the BRICS nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa), along with the heads of state of South America issued the Fortaleza Declaration which announced the formation of a New Development Bank (NDB) to fund infrastructure projects for the purpose of building a world highway including a crossing at the Bering Strait.

The LaRouche Movement, the Schiller Institute and the Executive Intelligence Review are leading proponents for the tunnel project. They have spent huge sums of money to educate people about this project, which they envision will unify East and West, and North and South.

Ricardo De Sena, Secretary General of UPF North America, said he is inspired by this project. In trying to understand how to get the religions involved and interested, he said you must “connect to the heart of the parent. It is the heart of God to want to draw together people of all races, cultures, religions and nationalities as in one peaceful, prosperous global community.” An interfaith sanctuary should be part of this design, he said. “It is not just about economics or moving goods from one place to another and financial development. The project must be connected to God.”

Conclusion:

It was the consensus of the forum participants that the UPF should re-launch the Bering Strait Tunnel Project, particularly in preparation to commemorate its 10th anniversary, and appeal to the world to work toward this substantial bridge to go over barriers between races, cultures, religions and nationalities.

On March 3, 2015, on the occasion of the second anniversary of the Cheon Il Guk Foundation, Mrs. Hak Ja Han Moon said: “Looking at the world today, have you thought, who is the owner of this world? There is no owner. Is it the democratic world? Is it the communist world? Are the prosperous nations the owners of this world? No. The true owner must appear. The true owner is the one who perfects God’s providential history. That person is the true parent.” She added, “Humankind is suffering and dying amidst the destructive force of religion, race and national borders that is afflicting tragedies upon the world today. Can you gaze upon them without doing anything? We must educate everyone and raise them up as True Parents’ children. That is the only way to go in order to bring about one united world that we, Heaven, and all humankind have longed for. I sincerely ask that you engrave these goals in your hearts, and do your best.”

The Bering Strait Tunnel and the International Peace Highway / Rail System represents an opportunity, particularly for religious and spiritual leaders, to inspire and offer guidance to political and civic leaders and to motivate the public for peaceful and constructive change. This has been the traditional role of religious and spiritual leaders, and to follow in the footsteps of Mohandas Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King, and the Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon.

Forum participants encourage UPF members and Ambassadors for Peace to recapture the inspiring vision of the World Peace King Bridge Tunnel project, reach out and find partners to build bridges of peace, host forums and invite leaders from the realms of science and religion to join together.


Upcoming Office of Peace and Security Affairs forums: The Role of Diplomacy in the Sustainable Development Goals, Peace on the Korean Peninsula, and Peace in the Middle East.

THINK GLOBAL WARMING IS BAD? WAIT UNTIL YOU MEET SUSTAINABILITY

Environmental psysical and spiritual enslavment for all. This is all propaganda and lies, since the beginning. The new pagan science/religion who will save the planet earth!!!

by William M. Briggs18 Apr 2015

The problem with global warming is that eventually it must meet reality. Either the globe is warming up at horrific rates as the models have promised, or it isn’t. And if it isn’t, then those still calling themselves “scientists,” and meaning it, must admit failure and move on.

Incidentally, the globe is not heating up as promised, and hasn’t been for decades. Stand by for scientists to admit it.

The good thing about global warming, while it lasted, was that it called for government to cure it; indeed, government was the only possible solution.

And this was very welcome news for government, which is why it fought so hard to support those scientists and organizations that were sure they saw global warming lurking in every shadow.

Therein lies the true cause of the global warming movement: government-as-solution, a way to push and insist upon progressive ideals for the salvation of the planet.

But what happens now that global warming has met reality? Well, as said, it has to disappear. Sadly, its absence leaves nothing for government to cure.

Enter sustainability, a secular religion which is gaining converts faster than “outrage” spreads across the Internet.  Rachelle Peterson and Peter Wood at the non-progressive National Association of Scholars call sustainability “Higher Education’s New Fundamentalism“, and have written a report describing this new form of paganism.  Anybody interested in the future of the Western university should read it.

Global warming had a mortal weakness. It was testable. Sustainability does not suffer from the same fault. It need never meet reality.  No matter what any individual or organization does, its activities can always be labeled “unsustainable.” This is because there is no definition of what sustainability is. It always means just what someone claiming to be more eco-holy than thou wants it to mean. True sustainability is a goal ever disappearing into the distance, one which can never be reached, but which must be pursued with ever increasing vigor — and funded by ever burgeoning taxes.

Like global warming, sustainability will “save” a planet which is in no danger of disappearing. It is, however, perceived as a Herculean task, one which only a government seeped in progressive ideology can undertake.  So not only higher education, but government is embracing sustainability.

The interesting thing about sustainability, as Peterson and Woods point out, is that unlike the rest of the environmental movement, it did not start out as a grassroots effort. Instead, it was pushed from the start by John Kerry and Teresa Hinez, who at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 conceived of the group Second Nature, whose stated purpose is to “transform” higher education.

Second Nature created the Presidents’ Climate Commitment, a creed which is used by college presidents to tell to other college presidents how morally eco-pure they are.  Of course, these officials also see that government is willing to pony up millions upon millions in grants to support sustainability causes, and no college president wants to miss his place at the trough.

At this writing, nearly 700 college and university presidents have committed their institutions to the path of sustainability.  They pledge to make their schools “climate neutral,” a physical impossibility. They promise to bully students into participating in RecycleMania, a contest which tests students’ knowledge of which piece of trash goes into which colored bin.  They also swear they will “attract new sources of funding.”

It isn’t only about the money. It’s about elites signaling their purity. This is why groups like the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education exist. These folks invented the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System, a trademarked “transparent, self-reporting framework for colleges and universities to measure their sustainability performance.”  Just like in kindergarten, different colored stars are awarded for better and worse performance.

College presidents are pushing for sustainability to be “integrated” across the curricula, and for the most part, as Peterson and Woods document, professors are complying. Cornell University, for one typical instance, has an “Ethics of Eating” course.

The NAS isn’t sitting still on their exposé. They’ve begun a series of conference calls for interested participants to learn what schools are doing next.
On the 16 April call, Peterson emphasized the lack of interest in global warming among college students. It was “a given, but not a primary motivator. They are all fired up about social justice, rolling back racism, promoting women,” essentially “equality” in all its forms. Sustainability is progressivism by another name.

SUSTAINABILITY : HIGHER EDUCATION'S NEW FUNDAMENTALISM

Mar 25, 2015 |  Peter Wood, Rachelle Peterson






“Sustainability” is a key idea on college campuses in the United States and the rest of the Western world. To many, sustainability is just a new name for environmentalism. But the word has come to mean something much larger: an ideology that demands new limits on economic, political, and intellectual freedom as the price that must be paid to ensure the welfare of future generations.

This report is the first in-depth critical examination of the sustainability movement in higher education. The movement, of course, extends well beyond the college campus. But the college campus is where the movement gets its voice of authority, and where it molds the views and commands the attention of young people.

This is really a big scam, a global lie but there's is much more that is not discuss in this article. How they will use global warming and climate change against citizens to bring the worship science to the mother Earth, and the impacts in the life of all. This last science-religion is an other counterfeit of God's laws.

Saturday, 18 Apr 2015 09:07 PM

Imagine, for a moment, sitting at a prestigious steakhouse in Palm Beach, Florida, a hot spot for some of the most wealthy and famous — Donald Trump, Tiger Woods, Oprah Winfrey, James Patterson, Rush Limbaugh, and hundreds more.

And, imagine dining with a handful of men you’ve only read about. Some of them are worth millions, others published best-selling books, and some have held prominent positions at the White House.

In essence, you’re sitting at a five-person table of VIPs.

You’re about to take a bite of your New York strip when one of the men, a top U.S. intelligence agent, slams a 164-page document in the middle of the table.

This document, you soon find out, contains damning evidence that a network of politicians, corporations, and scientists have conspired together to promote the fear of “global warming” . . . despite evidence clearly stating no such “global warming” exists.

The motive: $22 billion per year.

To be clear . . . that’s $22 billion of taxpayers’ money . . . the amount that our government pays to stop the “global warming” epidemic.

That comes out to $41,856 every minute.

Or, to put it in perspective, that is twice as much as what our government spends on securing our borders.

Then, imagine this top U.S. intelligence agent turning to you, and asking for you to join him on a mission to out those involved in the “global warming” lie.

Doing so would cost a lot of money, a lot of time, and could cost you your reputation. But, pretending you never saw the document, and carrying on with your life, would allow the scandal to continue and actually put lives at risk.

So, imagine if you were at that table, and the scenario I just described happened to you.

How Would You Respond?


My name is Tom Luongo. I am a former scientist with the University of Florida and currently run the Resolute Wealth Letter program.
My name is Tom Luongo, and I’ve recently had this exact experience.

In the following few pages, I am going to show you the alarming research in the document that was laid before me that night in Palm Beach.

I will tell you why this network of politicians, corporations, and scientists tried to hide this research . . . and how you can be part of a newly formed initiative with the aim of getting this research into the hands of every American.

This research proves, once and for all, that “global warming” is a sham . . . a sham perpetuated by a network of dirty government officials, greedy corporations, and bought-off “scientific” organizations.

How you respond will be up to you.

I can guarantee you one thing: After reading the next few pages, you will never look at government officials the same way . . . you will never trust what you hear in the media again . . . in fact, you will become skeptical of any and all authority figures going forward.

It’s unfortunate, but the betrayal you’re going to discover today runs very deep, and revealing the truth about “global warming” comes with great risk.

As a scientist for over 20 years, I’ve always upheld the truth.

I’ve worked with the University of Florida to do some amazing things . . . I’ve helped make crop yields more productive for third world countries . . . I helped create an intermetallic coating for gun barrels that dropped maintenance requirements on firearms by half . . . and I’ve helped cure diseases.

I have seen a lot of research go across my desk. But none of it can compare to the 164-page document that landed in front of me that night in Palm Beach.

That’s why I’m going to lay the facts from this document before you today, and then I’m going to ask that you join me, and the man who composed this document, on our mission to defund the “global warming” sham . . .

All it will take is a click of your mouse.

With one click, you’re going to put more momentum behind what I hope to be the largest effort . . . ever . . . to annihilate the “global warming” lie and defund the government’s multibillion-dollar spending frenzy to keep it alive.

Now, before we begin, I ask that you excuse any “rough” elements in this letter. What I’m sharing with you today is so urgent that I’ve made a huge effort to get the research in this 164-page document available to you as quickly as possible . . .

With President Obama’s recent speech about getting tougher on “global warming” issues I think it’s critical that we don’t waste a minute in getting this information out.

The sooner we get this information into the hands of the public . . . your hands . . . the more informed voters will be when they cast their ballots.

First, you should know who put this document in my hands — a man whom Al Gore is personally attacking . . .

His Name Is John Casey.


John Casey is a former White House space program advisor, consultant to NASA Headquarters, and space shuttle engineer. He is now one of America’s most successful climate change researchers and climate prediction experts.

John is a former White House space program adviser, consultant to NASA headquarters, and space shuttle engineer. He is now one of America’s most successful climate change researchers and climate prediction experts.

In short, John is the very definition of a government insider. He spent 35 years conducting classified research, examining confidential documents, and directing critical scientific programs.

For example: In 1986, when the space shuttle Challenger tragically exploded, killing seven crew members, John testified before Congress on the cause of the accident. After the testimony, Congress instructed NASA headquarters to bring John in to chair a special internal investigation into why these critical systems failed.

Now, keep that in mind for a moment: Capitol Hill and NASA trusted John’s detailed analytical approach and his engineering credentials so much they asked him to investigate the cause of one of our nation’s greatest tragedies.

After 35 years of serving his country, John quietly retired in Florida. He planned on living peacefully, spending time with his wife, children, and grandkids.

When the space shuttle Challenger crashed in 1986, the U.S. government asked John Casey to investigate.

 
But on one April afternoon in 2007, John made an “unfortunate” discovery that changed everything.
 

The discovery would ultimately lead him to abandon his plans for retirement in order to support a cause that was bigger than himself . . . that was bigger than anything he had done in his 35-year career.

In fact, this discovery would result in him becoming hated by all those who once heralded him as their friend and adviser.

After this outright rejection, John realized that despite his science not changing, despite the thousands of pages of irrefutable data, and despite millions of lives at risk . . . he was alone.

The responsibility of letting the world know about this discovery rested solely on his shoulders, and those who would listen to him.

Indeed, what he has to say goes contrary to everything you have been told about “climate change.”

I initially rejected what John had to tell me. But when he showed me what was in his 164-page document, I couldn’t argue with him.

Facts are facts.

What John discovered that fateful afternoon was . . .

'Global Warming' Is an Outright Sham

You see, John found evidence — buried right in the government’s own environmental studies — that destroys their argument for “global warming.”

Using their own data, John has proven, once and for all, “global warming” is a sham. And perhaps the most expensive — and lethal — sham in American history.

A sham that our government spends $22 billion a year financing. Think about that: our government spends $22 billion a year financing “global warming” initiatives.

Again, that’s almost double what the government spends on securing our borders.

Or, to break it down to real numbers . . .

That's $41,856 Every Minute!

But this is just the tip of the iceberg.

John’s research also uncovered a different looming cataclysm that will ruin every nation that’s not prepared . . . a calamity that has been accelerating for the last 17 years . . . and brewing for over 200 years.

This impending catastrophe is as natural as the sun rising in the east and setting in the west. And just as unstoppable.

I’m talking about a tectonic shift in the world’s economies that will . . .
  • Send oil to over $300 a barrel
  • Cause food prices to triple and in some places make food completely unavailable
  • Lead to violence erupting in the streets of your suburban neighborhood
  • Cause governments to topple, nations to descend into chaos, and international wars to break out.
In the 164-page document John handed me, he went to great lengths to explain exactly how serious this crisis will be. It’s going to be worsened by the fact our politicians are bullheadedly ignoring it.

The result will be every American being blindsided . . . unable to see it coming because of Al Gore and his cronies preaching false dogma.

As I said before, I didn’t believe it either until I saw the evidence in John’s dossier. And even then, it took me hours of talking to John afterward to digest it.

John’s research has now been corroborated by 17 independent scientific individuals and organizations. These are some of the top scientific minds in the field of climate science . . . in the world.

But That Hasn't Stopped the Hostile Attacks...

When John retired, he had many allies and supporters in the government.

However, when he turned that same analytical approach Washington loved so much on Washington itself . . .

He became, in essence, their “public enemy No. 1.”

Let me explain.

As mentioned, in April of 2007, already into a comfortable retirement, John began examining some solar and environmental physics research (these are his hobbies).

The “unfortunate” discovery he made would make any honest American sick to the stomach. John immediately took the evidence and called his colleagues and fellow government insiders to alert them to the situation.

He even sent notices to the White House warning them of the crisis.

The response?

Silence.

Silence, and then rejection.

And every year since, John has continued to notify every state governor, every U.S. senator, the House of Representatives, state attorneys general, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Obama’s Science Adviser Dr. John Holdren, and Dr. Jane Lubchenco, then head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

You see, all of John’s “friends” suddenly “forgot” his name and number when he revealed the inconvenient truth about Uncle Sam’s most expensive sacred cow . . . and showed them solid, scientifically sound research that obliterates the idea of “global warming.”

At the Heart of John's Discovery Were Several Blatant Lies... Here Are 3 of Them

*Lie No.1: The World Is Getting Hotter . . .FAST!

You’ve heard how the earth is rapidly heating up . . . causing drought and mayhem.

For sure, the media jumps on the “global warming” story every time there is a heat wave and each time a hurricane hits the East Coast.

But how much has the world really warmed?

Well, according to NASA’s own data, the world has warmed .36 degrees Fahrenheit over the last 35 years (they started measuring the data in 1979).

I think you would agree that a .36 degree increase in temperature over the last 35 years is hardly anything to get in a panic about.

Granted, that does mean the world is warmer, right?

The problem with that argument is that we experienced the bulk of that warming between 1979 and 1998 . . . we’ve actually had temperatures DROPPING ever since!

Fact: We Haven't Seen Any 'Global Warming' for 17 Years!

The reality is this: The world is 1.08 degrees cooler than it was in 1998.

Just take a look at this chart from Remote Sensing Systems, which provides data to NASA, NOAA, and other scientific organizations.
 
   

If you’re like me, this makes a lot of sense.

We’ve had cooler summers and longer winters.

Again, take one more look at the chart above — global warming reversed its rise in 1998. In the dossier John handed me, he explains exactly why this happened . . . and what’s going to happen next.

But for now, just keep this fact in your back pocket: the case for “global warming” is dead in its tracks.

Lie No. 2: The Oceans Are Getting Warmer

“Global warming” proponents have said for a long time we’d see a heating of the oceans.

This proposition is necessary, since it means all those big chunks of ice are supposed to melt, killing off polar bears and causing states like Florida to get swallowed up by water.

In 2007, while accepting his Nobel Prize for his “global warming” initiative (and quietly pocketing millions of dollars), Al Gore made a striking prediction . . .

“The North Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff. It could be completely
      gone in summer in as little as seven years. Seven years from now.

Fact: The North Polar Ice Cap Is Increasing in Size!

The arctic ice caps have increased in size by 43% to 63%.

It is seven years later, and recent satellite images show that not only have the icecaps not melted . . . but they’ve expanded in size by 43% to 63%.

Here’s what a Globe and Mail article had to say: “An area twice the size of Alaska — America's biggest state — was open water two years ago and is now covered in ice.”

I think we know who’s using actual science, and who’s fear-mongering their way to wealth and fame.

Since 2002, the ocean temperatures have fluctuated less than 1 degree Fahrenheit. There is no warming.

Again, there is nothing to get hysterical about here.

Lie No. 3: Scientists Agree — Humans Are Causing ‘Global Warming’ FAST!

You’ve heard for years how climate change has been caused by . . . well, you!

Al Gore and his liberal friends have stood onstage blaming you and your “gas-guzzling” car, standard four‑bedroom house, and the factory downtown.

Al Gore spreads “Global Warming” propaganda for his own profit.

Shame on you, right?

Of course, the hypocrisy of the claim is that Al Gore himself racks up annual electric and gas bills of $30,000, more than 20 times the national average.

Now, while I am all for keeping the environment clean (I recycle, drive a fuel-efficient car, and reuse materials), humans have not caused “global warming” . . . nothing can be further from the truth.

Indeed, “global warming” alarmists and their allies in the liberal media are famous for saying that scientists agree that man has caused “global warming.”

President Obama even tweeted on May 16, 2014, “97% of scientists agree: climate change is real, man-made and dangerous.” John Kerry, Al Gore, and a host of others have championed this statistic.

Shame on Them, Because That 97% Figure Is Completely Fabricated.
NOTE: I’ve shared a quick snapshot of the facts in John’s controversial 164-page document. Truth be told, John has 33 scientifically reviewed reasons that “global warming” is more than just a farce . . . it’s the product of bad, botched science. In John’s own words, the research in this document is “something you have not been allowed to hear for almost 20 years.” That is, the truth about our climate, the politicians manipulating the science, and the real key that controls our planet’s temperature — the sun.

As The Wall Street Journal reported, “The assertion that 97% of scientists believe that climate change is a man-made, urgent problem is a fiction.”

When further review was done, it was discovered that a mere 1% of scientists believe human activity is causing most of the climate change.

In outrage, a petition was signed by more than 31,000 scientists that states “there is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of . . . carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate."

Indeed, even a founding father of the man-made “global warming” theory — Claude Allegre — recently came out and renounced his position by admitting, “The cause of this climate change is unknown.”

Fact: There Has Always Been, And Always Will Be Climate Change

The reality is simply this: The climate changes over time.

When Alexander the Great was conquering Persia, climate change was a big factor. And we all learned in high school that the “little ice age” that rocked Europe killed hundreds of thousands of people from the 1600s through the 1800s. Additionally, we know about the heat wave and drought that wiped out much of America during the 1930s. Thousands of people were dislocated in search of survival.

Were those events caused by man-made “global warming”?

Of course not.

And, the reality is, most scientists who advocate “global warming” today know mankind has nothing to do with climate change.

Remember: Temperatures have only risen .36 degrees since 1979 . . . and the bulk of that happened during the 1990s! We haven’t seen any warming for the last 17 years . . . in fact we have seen a drop in temperatures.

Now, the Question Is . . . What Does Cause Climate Change?

Well, think about it.

Every year, the temperatures rise and fall with spring, summer, fall, and winter. A year is simply a 365-day cycle.

The sun is 1.3 million times larger than the earth. When its temperature changes, our temperature changes.

Every day, the temperatures rise and fall with daytime and nighttime. A day is simply a 24-hour cycle.

These two cycles happen automatically. We can neither change them nor stop them any more than we can stop the Earth’s rotation. It’s impossible. The temperatures fluctuate based on these cycles.

So clearly, the Earth’s temperatures rise and fall based on its exposure to . . . the sun.

Well, here’s the breaking news. And you must pay close attention . . . because what I’m about to tell you has been deemed a “forbidden theme” in the scientific community.

Talking about it gets you a black mark at the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change or the World Meteorological Society.

You see, there are larger cycles of the sun . . . “solar cycles.”

This may not seem earthshattering, but solar cycles are — bar nonethe most devastating argument against man-made “global warming.”

Essentially, there are times when the sun gets hotter and times when it cools off as measured by “sunspots.” And John Casey found multiple solar cycles that determine the temperatures of the Earth.

The thing about these cycles is that they are predictable, and therefore it’s not difficult to see what is coming in the years ahead.

Indeed, if scientists were paying attention to these “solar cycles” years ago, they could have told you that the Earth would get warmer during the 1990s, and then it would cool . . . just like it has.

In fact, this climate cycle, along with several other cycles, has allowed John to make 11 accurate predictions about the Earth’s climate over the past few years, and it has allowed him to make a catastrophic prediction which I will share with you in a moment.

Ironically, as John released his data on these solar cycles, the ugly lie about man-made “global warming” started leaking out.

Evidence Leaked That the 'Global Warming' Faction Has Blatantly Lied.

You probably already knew somewhere deep inside that something wasn’t right about the “global warming” theory.

Sure, during the 1990s, we all noticed it getting warmer. But, to say that it is directly tied what humans are doing seemed to be a stretch, and, we have all noticed it getting a LOT cooler lately.

So it might not come as a surprise to say that “global warming” is a sham. But what does come as a surprise to many is the evidence of outright lying that is now leaking out of trustworthy scientific agencies.

Shortly after John exposed the truth about “global warming,” 1,000 emails and 2,000 documents from leading “global warming” scientists were found . . . revealing potential conspiracies, collusions, data manipulation, destruction of information, and even admission of flaws that were buried.

For example:
  • One leading scientist — Kevin Trenberth — admitted “The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty we can’t.” A travesty simply because they were worried about losing their government funding.
  • In another email, Dr. Phil Jones — a leading “global warming” advocate at the United Nations — admitted that he used “Mike’s Nature trick” in a 1999 graph to “hide the decline” in temperature.
  • And another study done by Stephen Goddard at Real Science revealed just how ridiculous “climate scientists” can get with data manipulation. Here is what he had to say: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has been “adjusting” its record by replacing real temperatures with data “fabricated” by computer models.”

There are several other documents just like these.

More recently, Professor Robert Stavins — who helped write the 2014 United Nations Climate Report — came out to Breitbart News . . . and revealed that politicians demanded he change and edit parts of the report to fit their needs!

In short, governments, and government-funded scientists, want to make sure that any “global warming” research published . . . will say exactly what they want it to say.

Now, everyone knows from their high school education that the No. 1 rule of doing scientific research is that it cannot be undertaken with an end goal in mind because you will only use the data points that support your end goal.

That’s not real science.

But that’s exactly what “global warming” scientists are doing! They are only using partial data . . . the data the supports their end goal . . . to make their point that there is man-made “global warming.”

So, we’re being told that the survival of our planet, of the human race, relies on tackling “global warming” . . . yet the whole thing is a sham.

But Why?

Why would this network of politicians, corporations, and scientists do such a thing?

Well, think about it.

Our federal government spends $22 billion on “global warming” research each and every year (twice as much as we spend on protecting our border!).

Again, that is $41,856 every minute.

If government-funded scientists came out and said “global warming” didn’t exist, their funding would be cut immediately.

But “global warming” has been kept on life support for another crucial reason: It has been a practical ATM for every in-the-know political figure.

The media is catching on to Al Gore’s lies, but he is not going down without a fight.

Al Gore, for example, has been one of the most vocally aggressive crusaders for “global warming.”

In 2001, before leaving office as vice president, Gore was worth less than $2 million. Since then, he has grown his wealth to $100 million . . . almost entirely by investing in a handful of “green-tech” companies . . . 14 of which received more than $2.5 billion in loans, grants, tax breaks, and more from the Obama administration.

The Telegraph reports Al Gore could become the “world’s first carbon billionaire” thanks to his investments in green companies . . . all of which benefit from tax dollars and government loans to “prevent global warming.”
And he’s not alone.

SCIENTIST CONFESSES : "GLOBAL WARMING" A $22 BILLION SCAM" - P.2

President Obama Has His Hand in the Cookie Jar Too.

You are likely familiar with the story of the failed Solyndra green energy initiative, which cost taxpayers $500 million; President Obama took a lot of flak for that.



After accepting $1.25 million in campaign contributions, President Obama made sure to include his “global warming” plans in his victory speech: “We want our children to live in an America that isn’t threatened by the destructive power of a warming planet.”
But here’s a little-known side of the Solyndra story I bet you haven’t heard: Obama, in essence, used taxpayer money to finance his re-election campaign . . . by funneling it through Solyndra.
 

You see, when Solyndra fell on hard times, it passed into the hands of two large private equity investors . . . Goldman Sachs and George Kaiser. When $500 million in taxpayer money was given to Solyndra, both Goldman Sachs and George Kaiser benefited. Coincidentally, both have made contributions to Obama’s election campaigns adding up to roughly $1.25 million.

It doesn’t stop there.
  • In 2010, another federal loan of $400 million went Abound Solar. That resulted in a bankruptcy as well. But investors in Abound Solar seemed to do just fine . . . investors like billionaire heiress Patricia Stryker. Stryker has famously contributed $500,000 to the Coalition for Progress while throwing $85,000 toward Obama’s inaugural committee. It’s just a coincidence that the government handed a company she invested in $400 million just before bankruptcy . . . right?

  • There’s also A123 Systems, which paid one lobbying firm $970,000 to secure money from the government — and received $279 million in federal assistance. The CEO of A123 Systems went on to fund multiple Democratic senators and contributed to Obama’s campaign.

  • First Solar received $646 million in government loan guarantees, and has since contributed more than $180,000 to Democratic campaigns.

  • GE is notorious for spending tens of millions of dollars a year to “buy” green energy credits for its wind turbines and other green technologies — credits which helped the firm pay ZERO taxes in 2011.
There are a host of other examples of liberals getting wealthy off “global warming” initiatives just like these.

You can see why green energy is such a profitable business — CEOs and executives get to rake in millions of dollars, while politicians get lucrative donations for their campaigns . . . and scientists get all the funding they need to keep them going . . . all on your dime.

But here’s the cherry on top . . .

While $22 billion of our money is being redistributed every year to greedy scientists, politicians, and corporations . . .

The Real Cost Is $1.75 Trillion

$22 billion is just what is spent on these “global warming” initiatives.

The reality is, these initiatives have ripple effects . . . mainly the regulations (from government agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency) that shackle free enterprise and force us to rely on foreign energy.

According to Forbes, the total cost of these ripple effects is a staggering $1.75 trillion annually.

I want you to really think about that for a moment.

We’re watching $1.75 trillion per year . . . $3,329,528 per minute . . . go to waste.

It’s worse when you note that the U.S. Energy Information Administration says these regulations could ultimately cause gasoline prices to rise 77% over baseline projections . . . send 3 million Americans to the welfare line . . . and reduce average household income by a whopping $4,000 each year.

Washington knows all of this . . . and is still barreling forward with its nonsense policies!

They’re just letting you foot the bill, while they pocket the benefits.

Fact is, organizations like the Environmental Protection Agency have handcuffed capitalism . . . based on a theory even its staunchest supporters (like the aforementioned Dr. Allegre) have already renounced.

The result: reduced business, higher energy and food costs, higher taxes, lost jobs, and more money going overseas.

With $1.75 trillion in annual costs, you would think someone out there would listen to John and his research, but . . .

They Mocked Him

When John discovered that the world was indeed cooling, he urgently shared his findings, only to get lambasted.

Al Gore himself specifically called John a “pseudo-scientist” and discarded his findings.

“Global warming” advocate Dr. Benjamin Kirtman simply dismissed John’s warnings as the “usual nonsense.”

Media Matters has published two personal attacks against John — saying he has “no background in climate science” (which isn’t true) and calling him a “scam artist.”

But think about something for a moment.

Why would John take on this mission to expose the truth about “global warming” if he didn’t fully know that his evidence was fact? Why would he risk his reputation, his retirement, and his way of life?

It would have been much easier to walk away.

But John isn’t the type to walk away from the truth . . . especially when it would put his family, country, and even the world at risk.

That is why John has taken on this mission, even if it means doing it alone.

It is why he has exhausted his savings and retirement funds to spread the word about his research through his organization, Space and Science Research Corporation (SSRC).

He will let nothing stop him.

After 7 Long Years of Fighting . . . HOPE!

John’s persistence is finally paying off.

A small movement is starting . . . one that I am proud to be a part of, and one that I will invite you to join in a moment.

Helping fuel this movement has been the series of cold winters and cool summers that John predicted would come. The media no longer could ignore the irony in front of them. Here is what they have reported recently.
  

And now, a small but distinguished group of scientists and researchers are publically aligning themselves with John Casey and his organization.

One such organization recently named John . . .

'America's No. 1 Climate Forecaster'

Perhaps that is because unlike some of the “global warming” darlings and proponents — NOAA, NASA, and the IPCC — John’s research has consistently predicted weather patterns correctly.

John has spoken at conferences across the United States . . . making 11 accurate predictions.

Since he first began sharing this work in 2007, John’s 11 predictions have come true (mind you, these are MAJOR events, not predicting that tomorrow will be slightly cloudy with a chance of rain).

I could walk you through all 11, but they are very extensive and heavy on the science. John has accurately predicted everything from a drop in solar activity (NASA later adjusted their own projections to fall in line with his) to a rise in historic earthquake activity (10 months before the earthquake that hit Japan and caused the Fukushima meltdown).

Please know, all 11 of his predictions of have been verified — by myself and other third parties. All of them have been attacked by government-funded scientists, only for those same scientists to eat their words later.

Each and every one of John’s predictions have been made publicly and shared with top government officials and the mainstream media for the last seven years.

John has made every effort to share this information. But instead of listening, the media and the left treated him like a leper and have done their best to smear his name.

Science and politics have worked this way for hundreds of years.

Galileo was ridiculed by scientists invested in the idea the sun revolves around the Earth.

Robert Goddard — the man who ushered in the Space Age and rocket ships — was ridiculed endlessly during his life for proposing . . . traveling to the moon.

William Harvey was ostracized for proposing the theory of blood circulation . . .

Opponents could never refute the science — they could only attack the man behind it. Just like they do with John today.

But there is a small group of scientists that are starting to listen, and take action!

17 Scientific Masterminds Speak

Unlike the “scientists” who want to present information that has been twisted to fit a political agenda, and slam anyone who rebels against the accepted dogma . . .

John has done nothing but put his research up to public scrutiny for the last few years.

And now some of the top scientific minds in the world are rallying to him. Here’s what they have to say . . .
  • Dr. Fumio Tsunoda, professor emeritus of geology at Japan’s Saitama University, testified, “ [John’s] work is quite a revelation that marks a step toward a new scientific civilization ” and his findings “add a brilliant page to the history of science.”
  • Dr. Natarajan Venkatanathan, professor of physics, SASTRA University, said, “ [John’s] ideas may be opposed by conventional scientists, but they will have to accept his theory because the truth prevails. ”
  • Dr. Boris Komitov, one of Europe’s top solar physicists and a professor at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, was so impressed with John’s work, he reached out to John and joined the Space and Science Research Corporation (SSRC). Here’s what Dr. Komitov had to say: “These problems brought on by this next climate change that Casey ably discusses . . . are more important than ever. ”
  • Dr. Ole Humlum, professor of physical geography at the University of Oslo, said, “The history of science is filled with examples of individuals with new ideas being met by the current scientific establishment not with enthusiasm, but rather with disregard and sometimes, even ridicule. These hypotheses were considered outrageous by many contemporary scientists, but today they represent the very foundation for much of our present understanding of planet Earth’s dynamics. New hypotheses based on empirical observations should always be welcomed warmly. This also applies very much to [the work] by John Casey.”
  • Dr. Giovanni Gregori, who has served on the National Research Council of Italy since 1963 and serves on multiple astronomical councils and in several societies, went so far as to say that John Casey is the modern day Leonardo da Vinci. He also said: “[John Casey’s work] is an important contribution for understanding and facing the environmental challenge, in its multifaceted and often disquieting manifestations.”
  • Dr. Dong Choi, editor-in-chief of the New Concepts in Global Tectonics newsletter, calls John’s work “earth-shattering.”

Each of these scientists has reviewed John’s work and had no choice but to agree with his conclusion after seeing the evidence, just as I did.

John even confided in me that several other scientists secretly support his work. They agree with his conclusions. They think “global warming” and the accepted climate science is hogwash.

But they can’t say anything about it.

In John’s words: “If you work for the government and you stand up and say, ‘Man-made climate change is all nonsense’ you can kiss your government job goodbye. They’ll either make it hell to work there, or fire you outright.”

It’s easy to get upset with these scientists, and we should be, but in reality, they are just trying to keep their jobs. We should put the bulk of the blame on our government.

We have a government that prefers comfortable delusion to uncomfortable truth.

Look, I Love This Country.

I am proud to be an American and I think God has really blessed this country.

When it comes down to it, no other nation has ever given every man, woman, and child the chance to enjoy so much prosperity.

And more importantly, so much control over their lives.

However, our nation has made a hard turn over the last few years — we’ve spent more time furthering agendas of a handful of politicians than actually protecting the American people.

John’s research is just one example.

Rather than being, as he says, “one of hundreds” sharing this information . . . John and his small organization have been doing it all.

And as a result of their tremendous effort, a small movement has started.

However, this small movement is at risk of dying in its tracks without help from bold Americans like you.

That’s why . . .

We Are Making a Stand . . .

As I said earlier, my name is Tom Luongo.

I’ve been a scientist for the better part of my life.

I’ve worked to make crop yields higher in third world countries, I’ve done hundreds of chemical tests to make firearms less maintenance-intensive, and I have worked to help cure diseases.

I used the “scientific” approach in other areas of my life as well.

For example, I’ve been able to turn every $5,000 into $34,000 using a scientific approach to investing.

I used the scientific method to teach myself economics . . . and, as a result, started buying gold in 2001 — watching it jump 473% since.

I even used it to deduce the housing bubble was coming, three years in advance (and, along with my wife, took special precautions to avoid the fallout).

My point is, I’ve seen and done many things with my scientific background. I’ve used it to help myself and help others.

John Casey knows I have a knack for getting things done, and done right.

That’s why, at a dinner in Palm Beach not long ago, John set a 164-page document in front of me. This document is the culmination of his years of work — it’s all his research in one bound volume.

John knew I would validate his claims, and upon doing so, take action.

Since that fateful night, John and I have teamed up to take that document and rewrite a good bit of it into a simple-to-read and easy-to-understand book, so that we could publish it, and get it into every home in America.

The book is called Dark Winter . . . and I want to send you a copy of it!

In it, John holds nothing back. He names names. He shows the evidence. And he reveals the cold truth about “global warming.”
  • This book includes every alert, every warning, every scrap of information he has sent urgently to our government.
  • John reveals the science behind his 11 accurate predictions in simple-to-understand terms, and why he foresees more significant events like tornadoes, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions.
  • John also reveals 33 crushing scientific dissections he performs which make “global warming” even more of a farce.
  • Most importantly, Dark Winter makes an alarming prediction. There is a looming cataclysm that will ruin every nation that’s not prepared . . . a calamity that has been accelerating for the last 17 years . . . and brewing for over 200 years. This event will cause international wars as governments topple and nations descend into chaos.
  • John even exposes why we may soon see oil rise to $300 a barrel and food prices triple (and in some places, food will become unavailable).
  • Best of all, John reveals a three-step plan to protect yourself if his latest predictions come to fruition just like his last 11.

Again, I want to send you a copy of this book.

I want to get it in your hands . . . and in the hands of every other American out there!

You’ve seen for yourself how “global warming” is a farce. You’ve seen how an entire community of scientists, politicians, and corporations are padding their pockets with $22 billion of taxpayers’ money every year in the name of “global warming.”

And you have seen how John has made 11 accurate predictions and a team of scientists are rallying around him.

Most of all . . . you have seen how John has spent his retirement time and money preaching this message to anyone who will listen. Yes . . . they are few and far between. But some are now listening.

John’s not doing this for money. As I said, he’s actually exhausting all of his savings to get this message out.

But we can’t stop here.

And John can’t do it alone.

He is facing a $22 billion budget along with years of “global warming” brainwashing. Some battles have been won, but the war is far from over.

We Are Fighting Back With the Cold Truth Initiative.

John is on the left. I am on the right. We have worked hard on putting together the Cold Truth Initiative, and we appreciate your support.

I have personally poured my own blood, sweat, and tears into putting this initiative together.

I figured it was the least I could do for my good friend John Casey after all he has done for us.

The Cold Truth Initiative will send an audacious message to those who have perpetrated this blatant lie called ‘global warming’ — a message that will stop their malicious deceit in its tracks.

We will achieve this mission by completing three bold goals before January 1.
Goal No. 1: Spread the Truth About ‘Global Warming’ to Every American

We will reveal the fraud, the bought science, the government manipulation, and the outright deceit so that EVERY American can see the deception in broad daylight. We want everyone to know that the little hunch they have about “global warming” being hyperbole . . . is the right hunch. We want to expose just how foolish these “global warming” policies are that cost us trillions of dollars. We want every man, woman, and child to see that “global warming” isn’t science — it’s a get-rich-quick scheme for politicians. And it must stop immediately!

Goal No. 2: Place a Copy of John Casey’s Book Dark Winter in Every Home in America

The government’s favorite way to control the population is to keep them misinformed. The last thing Al Gore would want you to see are the truths that are revealed in this book. When every American has a copy of Dark Winter, they will be freed from the control of man-made “global warming” lies. In order to do this . . . we have decided to give the book away for free at a huge expense.

Goal No. 3: Defund the ‘Global Warming’ Initiative

We will take back the $22 billion of taxpayer money the government is misappropriating every year, and let people use their money the way they would like to . . . rather than watch it burn up on pointless legislation. Once the “global warming” enterprise folds, the American economy can grow again . . . by as much as $1.75 trillion per year.

We have ambitious goals, no doubt.

John Casey and I have been working day in and day out, shoulder to shoulder, to spread this message.

But now we need your help!

Unite With Us!

You can join the Cold Truth Initiative right now.

Once you join, you will receive a free copy of John Casey’s book Dark Winter (a $29 value): This 164-page document is a death sentence for the dogma of the “climate believers.”

This book reveals the groundbreaking research that forced John to reverse his belief in “global warming.” He spent most of his life buying into the dogma . . . that is, until that fateful evening in April, 2007.

Once he saw the truth, there was no going back.

I am willing to bet this information will have the same effect on you.

However, your copy of Dark Winter is just the first item you will receive today when you join the Cold Truth Initiative.


John and I want to give you an arsenal of weapons to help spread the truth.

That’s why the book Dark Winter is just the first item we will be arming you with today. We are holding nothing back for this initiative.

You will also receive . . .
  • The Lost Video Interview (a $29 value): This is the private conversation I had with John after reading his 164-page document. During the course of this interview, John revealed more cold hard facts about the end of “global warming.” I think you’ll be just as floored as I was (particularly when John explains the real reason Russia is invading Ukraine, and why it could be very bad for America).
  • The Dark Winter Survival Guide (a $49 value): In John’s book, Dark Winter, he goes beyond blowing “global warming” out of the water . . . he reveals a calamity far worse than most climate scientists can imagine — all based on proven solar cycles. I worked hand in hand with John to create a DETAILED action plan for you to avoid the biggest pitfalls and even thrive during this coming era of chaos.
  • The Dark Winter Investment Guide (a $49 value): As a seasoned investor, I feel it’s important to help you get all your ducks in a row. Money makes the world go round — and having enough of it, especially during the potential dark days ahead, can make your life much easier. I’ll show you how to effectively invest your money — and possibly, like me, turn every $5,000 into $34,000.
  • A 3-Month Subscription to My Resolute Wealth Letter (a $24 value): I write a monthly newsletter that is distributed to about 10,000 people. Think of this newsletter as your monthly road map not only to wealth (I hand-pick several home-run investments every month for my readers) . . . but also to honest science, real economics, and alternative, practical ways of living outside of Uncle Sam’s reach. I bring in top experts to help me share little-known strategies for protecting your privacy, slashing your taxes, and even living “off the grid.” You get all of this information delivered straight to your inbox every single month — free — for three months. And then, if you choose to renew the subscription, it is only $97.95 for the full year.
That's a Total Value of $180 . . .

So . . . What Will You Do Now?

So what will you do now that you have seen the evidence for yourself? 

My hope is that you don’t walk away in silence as a network of dirty politicians, greedy corporations, and bribed scientists rob you year in and year out.


Liberals like President Obama and Al Gore hope you remain silent on what you have read today.

That’s exactly what they want you to do.

They want you to think that your contribution won’t make a difference. They want you to think your voice is too small to change things.

Remember, this information isn’t just important, it is vital!

$22 billion of your money is being spent every year to keep the “global warming” lie alive . . . consumers and corporations take a blow of $1.75 trillion a year because of useless legislation.

Imagine how the American economy might look if we weren’t effectively flushing this money down the toilet . . . imagine how much your taxes could drop if the government wasn’t spending your money on nonsense programs . . .

The only way we can win this war is if we unite together.

Thousands have already contributed to the Cold Truth Initiative. We are making headway, but we have a long way to go.

Now is your chance to make a difference.

Today, you can strike back at the lies, and more importantly, you can help other Americans protect themselves.

I urge you to click the button below and secure your copy of Dark Winter.

We’ll rush you a free Cold Truth Initiative Introductory Packet that includes John’s book Dark Winter along with The Lost Video Interview, The Dark Winter Investment Guide, The Dark Winter Survival Guide, and a three-month subscription to my Resolute Wealth Letter.

For Immediate Release
July 16, 2014

FACT SHEET: TAKING ACTION TO SUPPORT STATE, LOCAL, AND TRIBAL LEADERS AS THEY PREPARE COMMUNITIES FOR THE IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE 

President Obama is focused every day on building on the progress America’s economy is making by creating jobs and expanding opportunity for all hardworking Americans.  As part of that effort, the President has put forward a comprehensive plan to invest in America’s infrastructure in order to create jobs, provide certainty to states and communities, support American businesses, and grow our economy. Investing in infrastructure has never been more important. In addition to the clear economic benefits of building a world-class infrastructure system, the third National Climate Assessment released earlier this year confirms that the impacts of climate change are already taking a toll on communities. To support communities in need of a more resilient infrastructure that can withstand impacts like more extreme weather and increased flooding, President Obama is responding to guidance from governors, mayors, county and tribal officials who are proven leaders in helping their communities prepare for climate impacts.

The President established the State, Local, and Tribal Leaders Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience last November to advise him on how the Federal government can best respond to the needs of communities nationwide already dealing with the impacts of climate change. The Task Force, made up of 26 officials from across the country, is holding its fourth and final meeting in Washington, D.C. today. They will provide their final recommendations to the President in the fall.

Today the President is announcing a series of actions to respond to the Task Force’s early feedback to help state, local, and tribal leaders prepare their communities for the impacts of climate change by developing more resilient infrastructure and rebuilding existing infrastructure stronger and smarter.

Providing Federal resources to support climate preparedness:
  • National Disaster Resilience Competition. The nearly $1 billion National Disaster Resilience Competition, announced by the President on June 14, will make resources available to communities that have been struck by natural disasters in recent years.  Building on the success of the Rebuild by Design competition after Hurricane Sandy, this competition will create replicable models of modern disaster recovery that apply science-based and forward-looking risk analysis to address recovery and resilience needs.  The competition will also help communities create and implement disaster recovery plans that will make them better prepared for future extreme weather events and other shocks. 
  • Today, new details for the competition are being announced by the President. The year-long competition will have two phases: (1) risk assessment and planning; and (2) design and implementation.  Many communities will be eligible for funding and technical assistance during Phase 1 to develop innovative, data-driven, and community-led approaches to recovery that increase preparedness for future disasters.  A subset of these communities will be invited to continue in Phase 2 to design solutions for recovery and future resilience. The best proposals will receive funds for implementation to demonstrate how communities across the country can build a more resilient future.  More information is available at http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/documents/huddoc?id=FactSheet_071514.pdf.
  • Helping tribes prepare for climate impacts. The Department of the Interior’s (DOI) Bureau of Indian Affairs today launched a new $10 million Federal-Tribal Climate Resilience Partnership and Technical Assistance Program that will help tribes prepare for climate change by developing and delivering adaptation training. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy will establish an interagency group to provide tribes with data and information, improve Federal collaboration, and assist with climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts.
  • Investing in the nation's rural electric system. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) today announced awards totaling $236.3 million in funding for eight states to support improved rural electric infrastructure. A modern, reliable electric system is critical to attract and retain residents and businesses in rural communities. Supporting rural electric utilities' deployment of smart grid technologies will increase efficiency and reliability and bring more jobs to rural America.  President Obama and Agriculture Secretary Vilsack are committed to smarter use of Federal resources to foster sustainable economic prosperity, support the rural way of life, and ensure the Federal Government is a strong partner for businesses, entrepreneurs and working families in rural communities.
  • Developing advanced mapping data and tools. The Department of the Interior’s U.S. Geological Survey and other Federal agencies today launched a $13.1 million 3-D Elevation Program partnership designed to bring Federal agencies, academia, corporate entities, states, tribes, and communities together to develop advanced 3-dimensional mapping data of the United States.  These data and related tools will be used in the areas of flood risk management, water resource planning, mitigation of coastal erosion and storm surge impacts, and identification of landslide hazards as an essential component of supporting action on climate resilience. More information is available at http://nationalmap.gov/3DEP/.
  • Safeguarding access to quality drinking water amid drought. USDA continues to work with producers, communities, affected states and other agencies to help address the current West Coast drought. This week, the Department will announce additional funds to help rural communities struggling with drought. These funds will help rural communities that have experienced or are likely to experience a significant decline in the quantity or quality of drinking water due to severe drought and other emergencies.  
Rebuilding stronger and safer after natural disasters:
  • Establishing a Mitigation Integration Task Force.  In order to help communities build back stronger and safer in the face of new risks, FEMA has established a Mitigation Integration Task Force to develop and implement a Mitigation Integration Pilot Program by the end of August.  Working with State, tribal, local, and eligible private non-profit partners, FEMA will identify pilot projects in current and emerging disasters where there are specific opportunities to make investments that result in a more resilient outcome than using a single funding source and program.  This pilot program will work to equip communities to meet their recovery objectives and ensure that all resources are brought to bear through FEMA’s Mitigation and Recovery programs to minimize the impact of future disasters. This is part of FEMA’s goal of breaking the cycle of disasters -- saving lives, protecting property, reducing losses, and allowing individuals and communities to recover more quickly after a disaster.
  • Accounting for Climate Change in Hazard Mitigation Planning.  To ensure that States are preparing for the impacts of climate change, FEMA will release new guidance for State Hazard Mitigation Plans that calls upon States to consider climate variability as part of their requirement to address the probability of future events in state planning efforts. Last issued in 2008, FEMA’s guidance for these plans helps States prepare in advance of a disaster to identify and drive actions for more resilient and sustainable recovery, such as elevating or relocating homes and businesses to reduce flood risks associated with sea-level rise and more intense storms or rebuilding to higher standards. More information is available at http://www.fema.gov/multi-hazard-mitigation-planning.
Building more resilient communities:
  • Committing to “Preparedness Pilots.”  The Administration today announced the launch of two “Preparedness Pilots” in cooperation with the City of Houston and the State of Colorado, with NASA (Johnson Space Flight Center) and the Energy Department (National Renewable Energy Laboratory).  The pilots will involve key Federal agencies in each community, including NASA, the Energy Department, the Department of Defense, the Department of the Interior, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the Department of Agriculture. These pilots will bring together federal agencies and local communities to assess and plan for their region-specific vulnerabilities and interdependencies associated with the impacts of climate change. This effort will advance preparedness planning on the ground and help create models for other communities and agencies to follow.
  • Making our coasts more resilient.  The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) today announced new program guidance under Section 309 of the Coastal Zone Management Act to ensure greater consideration of how climate change may exacerbate challenges in the management of coastal areas.  Through this effort, $1.5 million of competitive funding will be available to help states and tribes make improvements to their coastal management programs. The guidance will help state and tribal coastal managers better prepare for the impacts of climate change and improve the safety of their communities.  More information is available at http://oceanservice.noaa.gov/.
  • Improving stormwater management. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today launched a Green Infrastructure Collaborative among government agencies, NGOs, and other private sector entities to advance green stormwater infrastructure.  Green infrastructure, such as urban forests and rooftop gardens, can be used as an important tool for building resilience to climate change impacts such as increased precipitation and heat island effects. Federal agencies will provide funding assistance in at least 25 communities across the country for green infrastructure projects, technical assistance to create integrated green stormwater management and hazard mitigation plans, and recognition and awards programs for innovative green infrastructure projects. Agencies will also add guidance on green infrastructure to existing Department of Transportation (DOT) and Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) peer-to-peer exchange and training programs. The partnership will also provide a platform for conducting research on increasing affordability and effectiveness, sharing best practices, and developing actionable planning tools that decision-makers have been seeking.
  • Assessing climate-related health hazards. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention today released a new guide, “Assessing Health Vulnerability to Climate Change,” to help public health departments assess local vulnerabilities to health hazards associated with climate change. The assessments will help inform targeted public health actions to reduce the health impacts of climate change.

“More than 6 million Canadians join 500 million people in over 180 countries in staging events and projects to address local environmental issues. Nearly every school child in Canada takes part in an Earth Day activity.” – Earth Day Canada[1]

“Earth is more than just a spaceship. She is our Mother. She gave us life. There is nowhere else to go but to stay and love her.” – Reader’s comment regarding John Kerry’s Earth Day blog.[2]



Just as in olden days, the Earth has become the focal point for worship. In Grecian times the supreme Earth deity was Gaia, also known as the Universal Mother. Sacred oaths were given in her name, and worshippers performed rituals in her honour.[3] One commentator tells us,
Citation:


“The classic artistic representation of Gaia is a woman emerging breast-high from the earth. The goddess arises but never leaves her planetary body. Visceral rites, including plant, animal, and (presumably ecstatic) human sacrifice as well as unabashed sexual ceremonies were held to adore the goddess’s fecundity.”[4]


In our contemporary era, Earth Day has become the modern celebration of Gaia. Partakers of this event, whether aware of it or not, play off the ancient pagan beliefs of a Universal Mother. Like the sacred oaths taken in her name, today’s Earth Day celebrants sign environmental petitions, make pledges, and announce resolutions in support of Mother Earth. And like the old sacrifices to the deity, today’s Earth Day practitioners offer sacrifices of “good works” to the planet. Not only is the Earth a deity to be venerated, but the Earth itself – as the representative and embodiment of the Goddess – has become a modern day idol.

Do all who engage in Earth Day festivities realize the connections between this event and the ancient pagan deity? Some do, especially those who take a neo-pagan position, but many are unaware, thinking it’s a family-oriented way to engage in environmental conservation (much good is done during Earth Day, such as cleaning up stream beds or planting trees – but that’s not the issue). Motivated by good intentions, scores of individuals (including professing Christians), participate without ever considering what Earth Day is actually about or the philosophies that underpin the movement.

James Coburn, the American actor (deceased in 2002), understood the overt pagan linkages. Consider his 1990 interview with journalist Caryl Matrisciana during the Malibu Beach, Earth Day festival.
Citation:


Caryl Matrisciana:
“Mr. Coburn, why should we care about Earth Day or Mother Earth?”

James Coburn:
“Mother Earth is our Mother! She’s the Mother Goddess. She’s the one that we should be praising rather than raping.

I mean all of these people here today are here for one reason: Because they’re concerned about what’s happening to the Earth – what Mankind is doing to the Earth. I mean the negative emotions we carry around, a lot of us, is another contributor to it; it feeds the Moon. [Author’s Note: the Moon is significant in pagan circles.]

What we have to do is be true to ourselves, if we’re true to ourselves we’ll be true to Mother Earth. Mother Earth’s going to be bountiful; she’s going to give us everything we need. She has for a long time.

We’ve lost our way. The pagans used to know how to do it. And the Indians, some of them still remember how to do it.

The Earth is a living organism. We’re killing the one we love the most, and she loves us. We’ve got to praise our Mother Goddess!”[5]


When Earth Day was first inaugurated in 1970, Newsweek called the event “a bizarre nationwide rain dance.”[6] The New York Times, however, said it was an idea “whose time has come because life is running out.” Earth, and the race of mankind, needed to be saved “from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.”[7]

Now, almost forty years later, corporate sponsorships pay for community Earth Day events. Federal and local governments spend tax dollars in promotion of April 22nd, and a myriad of grassroots organizations add energy to the cause. It’s an event that captures the attention of local and national media outlets, politicians of every stripe, and fuels the imagination of school children everywhere. From the automotive giant Toyota[8] to every urban center in North America, from the United Nations to the National Council of Churches[9] – Earth Day is far more than a bizarre rain dance; it’s a platform for global citizenship and Earth loyalties.
Earth Day is Born   

The idea for Earth Day goes back to 1962 and Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin. Convinced that environmental issues needed greater exposure, Nelson suggested to President Kennedy that he embark on a “national conservation tour.” The following year Kennedy went on a five-day excursion promoting environmental conservation, but it never generated the political interest Nelson was hoping for. However, according to the Senator, “it was the germ of the idea that ultimately flowered into Earth Day.”[10]

Only a few years later, during the height of the anti-Vietnam War demonstrations, Senator Nelson hit on the idea of a national educational event to create environmental awareness; the “first national environmental teach-in.” This event, planned for April 22, 1970, was to be styled after the war protest movement, and it was aimed at capturing the interest and energy of young people – a generation going through one of the largest cultural shifts in the history of the United States. Not surprisingly, Nelson’s first Earth Day speech reflected this cultural shift, boasting that April 22 was to be the “birth date of a new American ethic that rejects the frontier philosophy that the continent was put here for our plunder…”[11]

Decades after the initial event, Nelson’s assistant who coordinated the Earth Day national teach-in campaign, Denis Hayes, told an interviewer that: “We consciously set out to build a movement to bring America back together, and let everyone under the umbrella with a shared set of values.”[12]

New ethics and a common set of values were to guide this movement and act as the inspiration for college students in their environmental advocacy. Remember, this was 1970, and the students of that era represent a wide swath of today’s political, business, academic, and religious leadership. Senator Nelson understood the potential power of tapping the nation’s youth.

Helping to make this inaugural Earth Day a success, a special book of essays was compiled through Friends of the Earth and distributed nation-wide to teachers and professors. Titled, The Environmental Handbook: Prepared for the First National Environmental Teach-In, April 22, 1970, this volume introduced a new set of social ideals that would point America to a better world. Tens of thousands of copies were distributed, and 20 million young people across the US celebrated what was to become a global movement: Earth Day.

But what of those values laid out in The Environmental Handbook? Were they based on the core Judeo-Christian tenets of Western thought and law? Did they support common sense conservation: erosion control, maintaining a balanced wildlife population, curbing toxic pollutants, or stemming the tide of invasive species?

Pollution was addressed, with a population control twist. Land use was also discussed, while demeaning “conventional cattle ranching.”

Paul Ehrlich, author of The Population Bomb, contributed a doomsday scenario to ignite impressionable minds: By 1973 air pollution would be choking cities, causing single-event smog disasters with death tolls in the hundreds of thousands – all heralding the advent of a global air quality collapse that would make the “planet uninhabitable” sometime before 1990. By the mid-seventies, the US grain belt would be turning into the great Mid-western desert, wiping out food stocks. During this time period, Ehrlich speculated, America’s resource sector would be collapsing and a national “family planning” program would have to be set up alongside an international agenda to curb the human population. By the summer of 1979, the world’s oceans would be dead and all sea-based animal life extinct.[13]

For high school and college students participating in the first Earth Day, this future-tense story would have had a chilling effect. As Mr. Ehrlich explained; “A pretty grim scenario. Unfortunately, we’re a long way into it already.”[14]

Does any of this sound familiar? “Warming may trigger agricultural collapse,” so reported the Inter-Press Service in 2007.[15] “Fish stocks could collapse because of global warming,” announced an Associated Press article in 2008.[16] Professor John Brignell, an author and social researcher, posted his observations regarding climate change and fear.

“Got a problem? Blame global warming! From allergies to maple syrup shortages to yellow fever: apparently every contemporary ill is caused by climate change.”[17]



Brignell’s website lists no less than 300 alleged problems, or pseudo-problems, attributed to global warming. This documented list includes crabgrass, kidney stones, inflation in China, invasions of jellyfish and giant oysters, the Loch Ness monster dying, fish getting lost, an upcoming Ice Age, conflict with Russia, sour grapes and stronger wine, farms going under – and farm output boosted, the Atlantic becoming more salty – and less salty, smog, terrorism, fainting, and smaller brains. I tend to believe this last one.

The sky is falling! The sky is falling! Is this a scare tactic for global transformation? Consider the following quotes,
Citation:


“During any ‘issue-attention-cycle’ in environmental campaigning, there is a phase in which the issue needs to be strategically exaggerated in order to establish it firmly on an agenda for action.”[18] – International Institute for Sustainable Development.

“We have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we may have.”[19] – Professor Stephen Schneider.

“No matter if the science is all phony, there are collateral environmental benefits… climate change [provides] the greatest chance to bring about justice and equality in the world.”[20] – Christine Stewart, former Canadian Minister of Environment.



“Collateral environmental benefits…?” This is questionable at best; so much so that over 31,000 scientists have signed a petition that challenged the human-caused global warming line, and openly suggested that increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide may have benefits.[21] Moreover, “justice” and “equality” are legal and social issues – not atmospheric. Again, this points to the heart of the matter: social transformation.

But scare tactics are effective. They leave the masses wondering: How can the human race reverse our imminent environmental demise? What can be done to save Mother Earth?

According to the first Earth Day and The Environmental Handbook, we can start by placing the blame on Christianity and Western values, and then adopt pagan and radical socialist solutions. Consider the following quotes from The Environmental Handbook. Keep in mind that this text established the ethical ideals of a new Earth reality, and set the tone for the first Earth Day – and subsequent celebrations.

Note: the author’s name and page numbers are at the end of each quote, and all misspellings are in the original.

 On Religion:

Citation:


Christianity, in absolute contrast to ancient paganism and Asia’s religions…not only established a dualism of man and nature but also insisted that it is God’s will that man exploit nature for his proper ends.

At the level of the common people this worked out in an interesting way. In antiquity every tree, every spring, every stream, every hill had its own genius loci, its guardian spirit. These spirits were accessible to men…Before one cut a tree, mined a mountain, or dammed a brook, it was important to placate the spirit in charge of that particular situation, and to keep it placated. By destroying pagan animism, Christianity made it possible to exploit nature in a mood of indifference to the feelings of natural objects.” [p.20-21, Lynn White Jr.].

“What we do about ecology depends on our ideas of the man-nature relationship. More science and more technology are not going to get us out of our present ecological crisis until we find a new religion, or rethink our old one…” [p.24, Lynn White Jr.].

“No new set of basic values has been accepted in our society to displace those of Christianity. Hence we shall continue to have a worsening ecologic crisis until we reject the Christian axiom that nature has no reason for existence save to serve man.” [p.25, Lynn White Jr.].

“Both our present science and our present technology are so tinctured with orthodox Christian arrogance toward nature that no solution for our ecologic crisis can be expected from them alone. Since the roots of our trouble are so largely religious, the remedy must also be essentially religious, whether we call it that or not.” [p.26, Lynn White Jr.].

“What was it that enabled Eskimo shamen, their minds a product of the taiga, tundra, and sea ice, to travel on spirit journeys under the ocean and to talk with the fishes and the potent beings who lived on the bottom? How did the shamen develop the hypnotic power they employed in their séances? What can we learn from the shamen who survive about thought transference and ESP? The answers are in the arctic wilderness still left to us.

Wilderness is a bench mark, a touchstone…New perspectives come out of the wilderness. Jesus, Zoroaster, Moses, and Mohammed went to the wilderness and came back with messages…This handbook, and the teach-in it serves, have their beginnings in wilderness.” [p. 148, Kenneth Brower].


On Population:
Citation:


“Freedom to breed is intolerable.” [p.41, Garrett Hardin].

“No technical solution can rescue us from the misery of overpopulation. Freedom to breed will bring ruin to all… The only way we can preserve and nature other and more precious freedoms is by relinquishing the freedom to breed.” [p.49, Garrett Hardin].

“…it is sinful for anybody to have more than two children. It has long since become glaringly evident that unless the earth’s cancerous growth of population can be halted, all other problems – poverty, war, racial strife, uninhabitable cities, and the rest – are beyond solution.” [p.139, John Fischer].

“Stabilizing the U.S. population should be declared a national policy. Immediate steps should be taken to: 1. Legalize voluntary abortion and sterilization and provide these services free. 2. Remove all restrictions on the provision of birth control information and devices; provide these services free to all, including minors. 3. Make sex education available to all appropriate levels, stressing birth control practices and the need to stabilize the population…” [pp.317-318, Keith Murray].

“Explore other social structures and marriage forms, such as group marriage and polyandrous marriage, which provide family life but may produce less children. Share the pleasure of raising children widely, so that all need not directly reproduce to enter into this basic human experience. We must hope that no one woman would give birth to more than one child.” [p.324, [i]
[/i]



 On Nations and Economies:
Citation:


“Nations… must be phased out as quickly as possible and replaced with tribal or regional autonomous economies…” [p.6, Keith Lampe].

“Interdependence of course can be sustained only in a context of cooperation, so competition (capitalism) must be phased out and replaced with cooperative economic models.” [pp.6-7, Keith Lampe].

“Looking beyond our borders, our students will be encouraged to ask even harder questions. Are nation-states actually feasible, now that they have the power to destroy each other in a single afternoon? Can we agree on something else to take their place, before the balance of terror becomes unstable? What price would most people be willing to pay for a more durable kind of human organization – more taxes, giving up national flags, perhaps the sacrifice of some of our hard-won liberties?” [p. 145, John Fisher].



On Global Transformation:
Citation:


“Nothing short of total transformation will do much good. What we envision is a planet on which the human population lives harmoniously and dynamically by employing a sophisticated and unobtrusive technology in a world environment which is ‘left natural’…Cultural and individual pluralism, unified by a type of world tribal council.” [p.330, [i]

It seems evident that there are throughout the world certain social and religious forces which have worked through history toward an ecologically and culturally enlightened state of affairs. Let these be encouraged: Gnostics, hip Marxists, Teilhard de Chardin Catholics, Druids, Taoists, Biologists, Witches, Yogins, Bhikkus, Quakers, Sufis, Tibetans, Zens, Shamans, Bushmen, American Indians, Polynesians, Anarchists, Alchemists…the list is long. All primitive cultures, all communal and ashram movements. Since it doesn’t seem practical or even desirable to think that direct bloody force will achieve much, it would be best to consider this a continuing ‘revolution of consciousness’ which will be won not by guns but by seizing the key images, myths, archetypes, eschatologies, and ectasies so that life won’t seem worth living unless one’s on the transforming energy’s side.” [p.331, [i]

[/i]
The message is clear. In order to save the world, we need to drastically change our present religious, political, economic, and social structures. We need to significantly re-shape society towards a New Age world-view where nature supersedes all, where political and economic structures morph into a type of ecological communism, where the cancer of human growth undergoes radical surgery, and where education and religion are indelibly altered to serve Mother Earth.

This is the essence of Earth Day. It’s the embracing of massive religious and social changes – the sacrifice of our “orthodox Christian arrogance” so that Gaia can be healed and humanity saved. It’s the clarion call of One World. Gaia Rescue, a project of Earth Day 2008, brings this into focus.
Citation:


“To correct this problem we’re going to have to act as a planet, not separately as groups or countries. It will take all of Gaia’s children to save her from the mistakes we’ve already made.”[22]


 Gaia is Mad   

If we don’t correct our mistakes, if we don’t change our values, behaviours, ethics, and beliefs – Mother Earth is going to take matters into her own hands. This is the current eco-philosophy fad. Human beings are a blight, and Gaia is going to cleanse herself unless we become good global citizens and respect the Universal Mother.

This is the message of the Dalai Lama.
Citation:


“Until now… Mother Earth has somehow tolerated sloppy house habits. But now human use, population, and technology have reached that certain stage where Mother Earth no longer accepts our presence with silence. In many ways she is now telling us, ‘My children are behaving badly.’ She is warning us that there are limits to our actions…”[23]



Meanwhile, movies such as The Happening depict Mother Earth striking back against Mankind – chemically inducing humans to commit suicide in order to clean up the people problem. Another Hollywood propaganda piece, The Day the Earth Stood Still, has watchful aliens descending on the planet to save failing Mother Earth from the cancer of humanity. During the last part of the movie, the main characters come to the realization that they must evolve at the global level in order to avert planetary disaster. Many other movies, documentaries, and television shows present a similar message. Man must change, or Gaia will deal harshly with us.

This is also the prognosis of British geophysicist James Lovelock, who wrote the 1979 book Gaia: A New Look at Life on Earth (this volume spurned on the “modern,” pseudo-scientific Gaia theory of Earth as a living construct). Now, his 2006 book The Revenge of Gaia, paints a picture of a planet suffering from a crippling fever – Global Warming – and that Mother Earth is fighting for her existence against the destructive capacity of humankind.

Not surprisingly, this line of thinking is found laced throughout the online deep ecology and Gaia community. Blog and on-line articles proclaim that Mother Earth is growing madder by the minute.
Citation:


“The reasons why there are so many natural disasters and severe weather changes, is because Mother Earth is angry with the people.”[24]

“The earth is parched. There is not enough water. Fires will rage. Some things are beyond the control of humans. Mother earth is angry, showing us the limits to our power. Let us learn from her.”[25]


Hmmm… Maybe a little party would make her happy.
A Secular Holiday?   

 Ironically, Earth Day is considered “the largest secular holiday in the world.”[26] Yet there is little secular about it. Rather, a variety of spiritual activities takes place; from Mother Earth rituals to multi-faith Sunrise services, from interfaith Earth gatherings to Spring meditations and “Earth Prayers” – such as the one suggested below,
Citation:


“Mother, Father, God, Universal Power
Remind us daily of the sanctity of all life.
Touch our hearts with the glorious oneness of all creation
As we strive to respect all the living beings on this planet.
Penetrate our souls with the beauty of this earth,
As we attune ourselves to the rhythm and flow of the seasons.
Awaken our minds with the knowledge to achieve a world in perfect harmony
And grant us the wisdom to realize that we can have heaven on earth.”[27]



Unfortunately many Christian congregations across North America have jumped on the bandwagon of Earth Day transformation; Some out of naivety, others with full consent and complicity. One example is San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral. During the 2001 Earth Day, Grace held an interfaith song-celebration for the planet.
Citation:


The music will be an eclectic blend of the world’s musical traditions. Tibetan temple bells will blend with the Cathedral Organ. Vocal performances will range from Native American and Muslim Chants to Spirituals and Choral canticles. Representatives from a diverse range of religious paths will participate in the festivities, including Native American, Islamic, Hindu, Jewish, Pagan, and Christian.”[28]



Over the years Grace Cathedral has been a beacon for comprehensive religious transformation, and has done much to promote a contemporary global-spiritual model, such as helping to birth the United Religions Initiative.

The United Church of Canada is another example. During the last twenty years, the United Church denomination has been considered a Canadian trend setter in “progressively left” Christian thought. This denomination has also been viewed as a social pillar by academics, political figures, and other leading personalities. Here’s part of a responsive reading for an Earth-centred worship service.
Citation:


“Speaking to the Earth Community, we say: Brothers and Sisters in Creation, we covenant this day – with you, with all Creation yet to be, and with the Creator. With every living creature and all that contains and sustains you.

All: With all that is on Earth – and with the Earth itself.”[29]



Alarmingly, it doesn’t seem to matter if a church is “right” or “left” in its general outlook. Congregations and denominations that have been historically conservative are focussing on the Earth as a point of service too.

In February 2009, I had a chance to visit with some relatives who attend an evangelical church long recognized for its stalwart stand in proclaiming the Gospel. But things have changed. Instead of messages focussing on the truths of God’s Word, sermons have taken an overt ecological edge. Although not promoting Earth-centric beliefs like the United Church – “we covenant this day… with the Earth itself” – the teachings highlighted typical environmental themes: Global warming, the eco-problems supposedly caused by Man, and the need to change consumption patterns and social behaviours. Does this remind you of anything?

Like hundreds of other pastors and churches across North America, naivety to the true intent of deep ecology and it’s message of global transformation is undercutting Christian based values – right in the church itself.

Does this mean that Christians shouldn’t be concerned about the environment? Not at all. However, a healthy Biblical approach is needed – one that recognizes the rightful place of Man in tending, managing, and using the Earth; not one in which Man is servant to a planetary master made in the image of the United Nations or some other globally inspired environmental agency. Sadly, pastors and congregations around the world are parroting the message of Earth Day and the leaders of global environmental governance.

The quest to involve the Christian community in Earth Day celebrations is especially significant. Not only do individual churches promote Earth Day as a special event, the Earth Day Network (EDN) specifically targets the “faith community” in the hopes that influential religious leaders will move the global agenda forward. And EDN has some clout.

The Earth Day Network is a group that arose from the original Earth Day in 1970.  Today the organization’s International Council is comprised of the some of the world’s most influential globalists,

– Lester Brown, Worldwatch.

– Gro Harlem Brundtland, Director of the World Health Organization.

– Robert Kennedy Jr., Senior Attorney, Natural Resources Defence Council.

– Gus Speth, former UN Development Programme official.

– Maurice Strong, President of the Earth Council and former UN Special Advisor.

– David Suzuki, Canada’s leading environmentalist.

– Klaus Toepfer, Executive Director of the UN Environmental Programme.[30]

Presently, EDN works hard to promote their Communities of Faith Climate Campaign, a global warming/Earth Day educational platform targeted at religious groups. In fact,  the EDN faith-based website has the motto “Earth Day: Something We Can All Believe In.”[31]

In 2007, EDN reached out a hand to the Christian, Jewish, and Muslim communities by creating “12,000 sermons and religious events” to empower religious leaders for Earth Day goals. EDN took this a step further during Earth Day 2008 by activating “500,000 parishioners” to support climate change legislation. Many churches also pledged to join EDN for “Earth Day Sunday” in 2008, focussing on climate change and saving the Earth during their Sunday services.[32]

In 2009, the Earth Day Network kicked off their Green Generation campaign, which engaged students, churches, and communities in pressuring the world to adopt a new global climate treaty. Moreover, this campaign continued until 2010 with the 40th anniversary of Earth Day.

Paradoxically, what originally started as a movement to intentionally place Earth on a pedestal while “demonizing” Christianity, nationalism, and human populations – all focused on driving America’s youth to a pagan, socialist utopia – has now been embraced by churches far-and-wide. Furthermore, by hosting and supporting Earth-centered and interfaith services, churches actually contribute to the systemic attack on Biblical values.

Gaia must be smiling, after all, the party is in her honor. FC

PEARL HARBOR COLORS CEREMONY GOES GREEN FOR EARTH DAY

Story Number: NNS150421-21Release Date: 4/21/2015 5:26:00 PM  

From Commander Navy Region Hawaii Public Affairs


141207-N-GI544-095 PEARL HARBOR (Dec.7, 2014) Members of a joint service color guard parade the colors during the 73rd anniversary Pearl Harbor Day commemoration at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. More than 2,000 guests, including Pearl Harbor survivors and other veterans, attended the National Park Service and U.S. Navy-hosted joint memorial ceremony at the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument. This year's theme focused on "Preserving the Memory." (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Laurie Dexter/Released)

PEARL HARBOR (NNS) -- The next Pearl Harbor Colors, a monthly military ceremony open to the public, is scheduled April 23 at 7:30 a.m. at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center.

The theme for this month's event is, "Earth Day: A Sustainable Future Begins with You."

Sponsored by Navy Region Hawaii in coordination with the National Park Service, the ceremony will feature the U.S. Pacific Fleet Band, the Joint Base Honors and Ceremonies Guard, and an official observance of morning colors. Lt. Cmdr. Rob Franklin, operations officer for Commander, Naval Surface Group Middle Pacific and Paul DePrey, superintendent of the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument, will give remarks.

"Hawaii is a perfect location to consider energy and the environment," said Rear Adm. Rick Williams, Commander, Navy Region Hawaii and Naval Surface Group Middle Pacific. "Not only are we stationed in the most beautiful place in the world, but also because of geography we are in one of the most energy dependent places on earth. Therefore, we want more resilience and independence while preserving the environment.

"We need to move out of the brown lane of dirty fossil fuels and toward the green," Williams continued. "And we need more use of renewables and better conservation. When we do, we stay in the fight longer, refuel less often and reduce risk across the board."

This month's ceremony will focus on the Navy's efforts to contribute to a more sustainable environment. Additionally, the ceremony will honor the National Park Service (NPS) and celebrate National Park Week, a presidentially proclaimed celebration of our national heritage, as the NPS kicks off its 2016 Centennial campaign.

Pearl Harbor Colors is an opportunity for local residents and international visitors to witness a U.S. military ceremony and meet veterans, service members and their families. Attendees can learn about various aspects of military history.

The setting for Pearl Harbor Colors is the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center at the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument, which is home to Hawaii's most visited historic site, the USS Arizona Memorial, which is expected to draw 1.5 million visitors in 2015.

LIGHTING STRIKES ONE WORLD TRADE CENTER IN STUNNING EARTH DAY 2015 DISPLAY



By Carolyn Williams

Published Apr 23 2015 12:42 PM EDT

weather.com

Mother Nature's magnificent power was on full display when lightning struck One World Trade Center in New York City during late afternoon storms Wednesday, on Earth Day.

The New York City skyline provided the perfect backdrop as a cold front moved through the metro area, producing a few lightning strikes, said weather.com meteorologist Chris Dolce.

As skies darkened, New York amateur photographer Max Giuliani captured the remarkable moment when the lightning bolt struck the top of the skyscraper. "Whenever there is a thunderstorm in the area, I grab my camera and hit Hudson River Park," he told the New York Daily News.

Despite how threatening Giuliani's photograph appears, a Port Authority spokeswoman told the Daily News there was no damage to the building.

Thousands of miles away, another stunning Earth Day display shook Chile, where the Calbuco volcano erupted twice and sent thick smoke and ash plumes skyward.

UNITED NATIONS RELATIONS

UPF-UK: DISCUSSION ABOUT UN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS 

Written by Robin Marsh, secretary general, UPF-UK

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

London, United Kingdom—Raising awareness of the UN Sustainable Development Goals that will come into effect in 2016 was the focus of a meeting held by UPF-UK.

How Sustainable Development Goals Will Refine the Progress of Millennium Development Goals” was the title of the March 17, 2015, evening program that was attended by numerous Ambassadors for Peace and distinguished guests.

In addition to raising awareness, UPF held the meeting to build a strong community of supporters for the SDGs, which will replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that have been in place from 2000 to 2015.

As Robin Marsh, secretary general of UPF-UK, remarked, “Supporting the Millennium Development Goals and now the Sustainable Development Goals is a natural part of UPF.” In accordance with the UPF motto of “Living for the Sake of Others,” UPF-UK formed a committee to support the SDGs, which it calls SDG-UPF.

Mr. Marsh explained that UPF has consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council and was founded on the desire to support the renewal of the United Nations. In practice, UPF globally supports many UN initiatives, he said.

James Tang, SDG-UPF project manager, encouraged those in attendance to consider how the SDGs can improve on the MDGs that have failed to make progress. He emphasized that society, corporations and governments must “take ownership.” People must be mobilized—a wide network of supporters who are essentially united in addressing the concerns of the general public, he said.

The speakers for the March 17 event, Mr. Tang said, were selected and the program set on the basis of TED-style talks that encourage the concept that the SDGs are a refinement and progression of the eight MDGs set 15 years prior.

Eleanor Kennedy, campaigns coordinator at Bond International, quoted U.S. economist William Russell Easterly, “The setting of utopian goals means aid workers will focus efforts on unfeasible tasks, instead of the feasible tasks that will do some good.” She called attention to the negative effects of public financing when a dependency on financial aid occurs; resources are provided, but there is a lack of a long-term trajectory that utilizes a sustainable process. Private companies have been left out in calling for social and corporate responsibility, she said, and an impending discussion in July will ensure “there will be a robust framework” to empower countries and organizations to be self-sufficient. These SDGs were made compliant with the UN regulations and expectations and were created by conducting an online survey directly with the UN as well as consulting over 83 countries, conducting door-to-door surveys. There is a call for responsibility from civil society and corporations to ensure that public financing will not be seen as the only source of funding used to apply the SDGs.

A majority of those in attendance had not read the UN report on post-2015 SDGs, a fact that raises the issue of the role of media. Henri-Pierre Koubaka, a journalist and the project manager at the Children’s Radio Foundation, asked what role the media will take in the launch of the SDGs. He said that it was a dangerous question, to which most people respond that “the media need to do their job,” but it is not a simple answer.

“The media need to help people understand. Our job is to hold governments and corporations accountable,” he said, to be the “gatekeeper and focus on transparency,” to push for corporate and social responsibility, to feel that these SDGs are action-oriented and that, despite there being 169 targets to be discussed at the UN Summit, that it will end with success.

There are 17 SDGs, and one of the primary ones focuses on gender equality. Ceciliah Chigwada, founder of Breaking Haven Prayer Ministry and Women Today Worldwide, discussed in depth the trials and tribulations that women in Africa face. Genital mutilation, denial of ownership, violence against women, the restriction of women working in trade—these are among many issues that women face daily. Ms. Chigwada explained that her childhood experience of helping to bring up 19 children starting from age 12, when her father died, gave her firsthand experience with facing challenges. The time has come for women to speak up, she said, and when public awareness is raised, this is when more attention can be brought to gender equality and women’s rights.

Social entrepreneur Nathaniel Peat, the co-founder of GeNNex Solar and recipient of a 2013 Youth Achievement Award from UPF, at the age of 25 founded the organization The Safety Box, which uses grass-roots methods to deter violent behavior and encourage entrepreneurship among unemployed British youth. The systematic education system of British schools discourages innovators, he said, “and without innovators there will be no forward steps toward a sustainable society.” Instead, he advocates STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education, which incorporates gender equality alongside entrepreneurship to lower youth unemployment. He believes this will promote the real meaning of social enterprise as “profit for good,” which prevents the rise of “dead aid”—financial aid and resources given without education on upkeep of the products or a sustainable, long-term plan. “There needs to be sustainability through renewable solutions,” Mr. Peat said. SDGs need to include plans for basic knowledge to the countries that will be receiving aid to encourage forward progress.

BBC world affairs correspondent Humphrey Hawksley brought to light the need for social justice. He mentioned an investigation he had conducted in the Ivory Coast on the use of child labor in the cocoa trade. He was appalled by the working conditions and by the large conglomerates in the candy industries that were aware of the situation yet did nothing to correct the social and human rights injustices. He also spoke about India’s tea industry and the poor treatment for tea plantation workers. The industry is highly lucrative, yet the trade and the running of the plantations are inhumane.

With the SDGs there needs to be attention to social justice and the urgent call for it. “The real issue is to create the wealth and then share it,” as there is a need for corporate and social responsibility, Mr. Hawksley said. If everyone were to contribute a bit, then it could accumulate to enough to aid global communities. The media hold the responsibility to inform and advocate, he said, and this UPF event was an example of taking action.

Following the last speaker, a panel discussion on the theme “Next Steps: What Actions Can Be Taken by Us?” was chaired by Aliu Bello, a special advisor to SDG-UPF who worked for UNICEF for 25 years. Many questions were asked on different topics, yet time was limited. The evening awakened the minds of many and spurred a great deal of networking.

25-27 September 2015 will be the day the UN Summit meets regarding the 17 post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that were the outcomes of the Rio+20 Conference. The objective set for the evening was to raise awareness of the launch of the SDGs and to build a strong community of supporters to unite and make progress beyond the 2015 deadline of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) set in 2000. The SDGs set in the agenda are all compliant with the principles of the Rio20+ Conference, international law, and build upon current commitments amongst other requirements agreed by the members of state. Furthermore, the SDGs are categorised as action-oriented, global, and most importantly “universally applicable to all countries while taking into account different national realities, capacities and levels of development and respecting national policies and priorities.” The link provided below is to encourage the general public to raise awareness of the importance of the agreement of the 17 SDGs for the upcoming UN Summit.

“Living for the sake of others” is the UPF motto that empowered the formation of SDG UPF. As Robin Marsh remarked, “supporting the Millennium Development Goals and now the Sustainable Development Goals is a natural part of UPF.” He explained that the UPF has consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations and was founded with the purpose to support the renewal of the UN. In practice UPF globally supports many UN initiatives.  

James Tang encouraged those in attendance to consider how SDGs can refine the MDGs that have failed to make progress, he emphasised the importance of society, corporations and governments “to take ownership.” The intention is to mobilise people, a wide network of supporters, essentially united in addressing the concerns of the general public. The speakers were selected and the itinerary set on the basis of TED style talks that adhere to their respective slogan of “ideas worth spreading,” to encourage the consideration that the SDGs are agreed to be a refinement and progression of the 8 MDGs set 15 years prior.

William Russell Easterly quoted in “The White Man’s Burden: Why the West’s Efforts to Aid the Rest Have Done So Much Ill and So Little Good,” “The setting of utopian goals means aid workers will focus efforts on infeasible tasks, instead of the feasible tasks that will do some good.” This quote is the strong focal point of Eleanor Kennedy, Campaigns Coordinator at Bond International, as she called attention to public financing and the negative effects it has when there becomes a dependency on financial aid, which in turn provides resources but lacks a long term trajectory that utilises a sustainable process. Private companies have been left out in calling for social and corporate responsibility and there will be an impending discussion in July that will ensure “there will be a robust framework” to empower countries and organisations to be self-sufficient. These SDGs were made compliant with the UN regulations and expectations and were created by having conducted an online survey directly with the UN as well as consulting over 83 countries conducting door to door surveys. There is a call for responsibility from civil society and corporations to ensure that public financing will not be seen as the only source of funding to apply SDGs.



 A majority of those in attendance have not read the UN report on post-2015 SDGs and as such raises the issue of the role of media. Henri-Pierre Koubaka, journalist and Project Manager at The Children’s Radio Foundation, unabashedly showed his daunting feelings towards the question that was imposed on him for his talk. How will the media play its role about the launch of SDGs, Koubaka summed up that it was a dangerous question in which most people respond that “the media needs to do its job,” but it is not a simple answer.

Some say the “media’s role is to inform”; some say the “media’s role is to investigate”; and some say the “media’s role is advocacy.” There is no one correct answer but an emphasis around the common topic to focus is the effect as to how these SDGs have on the people at ground base.

“The media needs to help people understand. Our job is to hold governments and corporations accountable.” To break down elections, coverage on tax evasions, to be the “gatekeeper and focus on transparency” to push for corporate and social responsibility that will empower the youth to have the public not feel short changed, to feel that these SDGs are action oriented and that despite there being 169 targets to be discussed at the UN Summit that it will end with success.

There are 17 SDGs and one of the primary ones focus on gender equality. Celciliah Chigwada, founder of Breaking Haven Prayer Ministry and Women Today Worldwide, discussed in depth the issue of gender equality with the focus being on the trials and tribulations women in the African diaspora face. Genital mutilation, denial of ownership, violence against women, the restriction of women working in trade, these are amongst of many other issues that women come face to face with on a daily basis. This issue has stemmed Chigwada from an early age as she shared an anecdote that her “dad died when she was 12 years old and helped bring up 19 children,” this experience in itself gave her first-hand experience with challenges. This is the opportunity 


for women to speak up and when public awareness is raised this is when more attention can be brought to gender equality and women’s rights.

Nathaniel Peat is the Co-Founder of GeNNex and a 2013 Youth Achievement Award from UPF. He is an accomplished social entrepreneur who at the age of 25 founded the organisation, The Safety Box, which uses grassroots methods to deter violent behaviour and build entrepreneurship as the rates of youth unemployment have been on the rise. He strongly advocates against the systematic education system of British schools as he believes “it narrows their creativity which creates innovators and without innovators there will be no forwards steps towards a sustainable society.” This is where he advocates the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education incorporating gender equality alongside entrepreneurship to lower youth unemployment. He believes this will push the real meaning of social enterprise as it being a “profit for good,” which prevents the rise of dead aid. Dead aid is a concept focused on a book of the same name that revolved around charities about how it has become systematic that financial aid is given and the resources, but there is no education as to how to upkeep the products and a sustainable long term plan.

For example, handing solar lanterns and when they become dim there should be a guide in place that the procedure needed is just to clean the lantern itself. “There needs to be sustainability through renewable solutions.” SDGs need to include plans for basic knowledge to the countries that will be receiving aid to encourage forward progress.

Humphrey Hawksley, BBC World Affairs Correspondent, brings to light about the need for “social justice.” There was a lot of focus on Africa including


an anecdote of a previous investigation Hawksley conducted in the Ivory Coast and the use of child labour in the cocoa trade. He was appalled by the working conditions and of the large conglomerates in the candy industries that were aware of the situation yet did nothing to diffuse the social and human rights injustice. The focus then turned onto India’s tea industry. How in India the tea plantation workers were treated nearly the worst. The industry is highly lucrative yet the trade and the running of the plantations are inhumane. With the SDGs there needs to be attention to social justice and the urgent call for it. “The real issue is to create the wealth and then share it” as there is a need for corporate and social responsibility. If everyone was to contribute a bit then it can accumulate to so much that can aid global communities. The media holds the responsibility to inform and advocate and the event was an example of taking action.



Aliu Bello chaired the panel that followed after the last speaker. There were a great number of questions and thoughts shared from the suggestion that teaching culture and spiritual studies will help create a bond within communities to the call of African celebrities and their lack of involvement in SDGs discussions. Nathaniel succinctly addressed that young people want to know and have more and that the greatest challenge often times is culture. However, there is always a way and one example is his involvement gather Jamaica’s great reggae artists to endorse his solar lanterns. There needs to be a solution to find how to get corporate sponsors apart from government aid. Eleanor Kennedy sadly informed that there can be no global police force to ensure that aid and basic knowledge are applied, but that this is when raising public awareness is crucial as there can only be hope that civil societies will unite in agreement with the importance of SDGs. Many questions and topics were asked yet time was limited. The evening awakened the minds of many of those in attendance that spurred a great deal of networking.

THINGS GETTING WEIRD AS POPE FRANCIS JOINS THE UN TO DECLARE JIHAD ON CLIMATE CHANGE SKEPTICS

Geoffrey Grider | April 29, 2015

The Vatican and the United Nations teamed up to warn the world of the effects of climate change on Tuesday, coming down firmly against skeptics who deny human activities help change global weather patterns.

“And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Revelation 17:5 (KJV)

From a spiritual and prophetic perspective, things are starting to get weird with Pope Francis. Very weird. Revelation 17 and 18 says that, in the last days, the Catholic Church once again becomes a world political power, just like the Rome of old. This is why we see the pope, who is a religious figure, suddenly getting very involved with movements and causes as a political figure. Francis has no problem using his global influence over 1.2 billion Catholics to get them to believe that man-made climate change is not only a real thing, but that if they don’t support it they are somehow out of the will of God. In essence, Pope Francis is declaring a jihad against any and all people who would dare say that man-made climate change is false, and using religion to do it. Francis is starting to understand who he is now, and the role he was born to play. The False Prophet.

Here is the permanent “climate change” that God is planning on performing:

“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” 2 peter 3:10 (KJV)

Talk about your global warming. Ahh…if only Pope Francis believed the Bible.



“We wish to elevate the importance of the moral dimensions of protecting the environment in advance of the Papal encyclical and to build a global movement to deal with climate change and sustainable development throughout 2015 and beyond.”

Vatican City – U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon discussed climate change with the pope before opening a one-day conference of scientists and religious leaders called “The Moral Dimensions of Climate Change and Sustainable Development“. The pope, who is due to make a major address on sustainable development at the United Nations in September, has said he believes man is primarily responsible for climate change and is writing an encyclical on the environment.

Ban, opening the conference of some 60 scientists, religious leaders and diplomats hosted by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, urged industrialized countries to invest in clean energy and reduce their carbon footprints.
Citation:

“Mitigating climate change and adapting to its effects are necessary to eradicate extreme poverty, reduce inequality and secure equitable, sustainable economic development,” he said.



The gathering’s joint declaration said “human-induced climate change is a scientific reality, and its decisive control is a moral imperative for all of humanity”. Ban said he and the pope discussed Francis’ keenly awaited encyclical, which is expected to address the issue of man’s responsibility for climate change.

ADOPTION D'UN PROJET D'ACCORD SUR LE CLIMAT A GENEVE 

internet@lesoir.be (Avec les rédactions du Soir en ligne, du Soir, d’AFP, d’AP et de Belga)

Les pays de la convention de l’Onu sur le climat devaient clore leurs travaux à Genève vendredi, avec l’adoption d’un texte de négociation en vue de la conférence de Paris qui promet d’intenses tractations dans les mois à venir tant les points de vue divergent. Au terme de six jours d’échanges dans une ambiance souvent qualifiée de « positive », les délégués ont prévu de se retrouver en séance plénière au Palais des Nations, pour adopter par consensus le texte qu’ils ont amendé en veillant à n’exclure aucune position. Le document sera ensuite transmis aux Etats, avec impossibilité d’y toucher avant la prochaine session de négociation, fixée en juin à Bonn. Soit à peine six mois avant l’ouverture de la conférence de Paris censée aboutir au tout premier accord universel sur le climat.

GARDER LA TERRE, SOURCE DE VIE

Silence total sur le fait qu'il faudra, sous leur programme du Développement Durable, éradiquer des milliards d'humains afin de protéger la planète Terre.

Le tweet du 21 avril 2015

Rome, 21 avril 2015 (Zenit.org) Anne Kurian

Le pape François exhorte à « garder la terre » afin qu’elle soit « source de vie pour la famille humaine tout entière », dans un tweet publié ce 21 avril 2015.

Un thème qui lui est cher, depuis l’homélie d’inauguration de son pontificat qui encourageait l’homme à être « gardien de la création ». Son encyclique sur l’écologie est attendue avant l’été.

« Il faut garder la terre afin qu’elle puisse continuer d’être, comme Dieu la veut, source de vie pour la famille humaine tout entière », peut-on lire sur @Pontifex_fr.

Récemment encore, samedi dernier, 18 avril, en rencontrant le président italien Sergio Mattarella, le pape a appelé à « protéger l'environnement » : pour « alléger les déséquilibres et la pollution croissants, qui parfois provoquent de vrais désastres », il a exhorté à prendre « pleinement conscience des effets de nos comportements sur la création ».

Le pape a évoqué à ce sujet la prochaine Expo Milan 2015 (1er mai-31 octobre 2015), intitulée “Nourrir la planète. Énergie pour la vie”, saluant « une occasion importante où seront présentées les technologiques les plus modernes pour garantir une alimentation saine, sûre et suffisante pour tous les peuples, dans le respect de l'environnement ».

Que cet événement « puisse contribuer à approfondir la réflexion sur les causes de la dégradation de l'environnement », pour pouvoir « adopter des décisions efficaces et préserver la santé de la planète que Dieu a confiée au soin du genre humain », a souhaité le pape.
