NOAA: 2012 saw second largest rise in climate emissions on record

The last paragraph is the kicker LMFAO. [open quote] “The World Bank warns that such a level of warming would lead to widespread droughts, powerful hurricanes and mass extinctions” [close quote] And they’re right ! After all, these phuckers control the weather, just like they decide on which nation to unleash Weapons of Mass Destruction. Question: What the hell does a bank know about weather ? That’s right friends, they finance the machines that control it, to manipulate the sheeple into buying carbon credits ! Follow the money ..

You can manipulate the weather, but you can’t control mother nature. She’s been doing her thing for billions of years and NO amount of money will buy her off. Climate change is a given and will continue long after those presently here on earth are gone.

One other thing to point out here …. We are above the threshold for which they previously said ‘we’re doomed’. Kinda makes ya wonder doesn’t it ? Global Warming is one of the biggest lies ever told to man !

Heat-trapping carbon emissions in the atmosphere grew so much in 2012 that the year will go down as the second-highest growth in recorded history, placing the globe dangerously near a climatic tipping point, scientists with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Tuesday.

Climate-causing emissions measured 48 times last year by a globally distributed network of atmospheric sensors showed that earth’s total atmospheric carbon content rose 2.67 parts per million (ppm) in 2012.

This means current atmospheric carbon is now at 395.09 ppm, far above the 350 ppm climate scientists like NASA’s James Hansen say is a safe limit. Any higher and earth’s weather systems begin to discharge the excess energy in the atmosphere through ever more powerful storms.

The last time the world saw such a large increase in emissions was 1998, which saw a rise of 2.93 ppm. Most scientists agree that restraining climate change to about 2 degrees of average global temperature rise would allow ecosystems to adapt, but increases of up to 4 or 5 degrees by the end of this century are expected if current trends are not averted.

NOAA’s Pieter Tans, who runs the government’s climate-tracking initiative, told The Associated Press that 2012′s growth in emissions means “the prospects of keeping climate change below that (2-degree goal) are fading away.”

The World Bank warns that such a level of warming would lead to widespread droughts, powerful hurricanes and mass extinctions — all of which would cause serious problems for human agriculture and water supplies, potentially spawning wars over resources as more of the human population is pushed away from flooded coastal areas.

Regulators Discover a Hidden Viral Gene in Commercial GMO Crops

Maybe they already know this and it’s all part of the depopulation plan ? Maybe they didn’t know and now that they do, they really don’t care. After all, most of us are useless eaters to the 1%. Silly Meat Puppet ….

In the course of analysis to identify potential allergens in GMO crops, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has belatedly discovered that the most common genetic regulatory sequence in commercial GMOs also encodes a significant fragment of a viral gene (Podevin and du Jardin 2012). This finding has serious ramifications for crop biotechnology and its regulation, but possibly even greater ones for consumers and farmers. This is because there are clear indications that this viral gene (called Gene VI) might not be safe for human consumption. It also may disturb the normal functioning of crops, including their natural pest resistance.

What Podevin and du Jardin discovered is that of the 86 different transgenic events (unique insertions of foreign DNA) commercialized to-date in the United States 54 contain portions of Gene VI within them. They include any with a widely used gene regulatory sequence called the CaMV 35S promoter (from the cauliflower mosaic virus; CaMV). Among the affected transgenic events are some of the most widely grown GMOs, including Roundup Ready soybeans (40-3-2) and MON810 maize. They include the controversial NK603 maize recently reported as causing tumors in rats (Seralini et al. 2012).

The researchers themselves concluded that the presence of segments of Gene VI “might result in unintended phenotypic changes”. They reached this conclusion because similar fragments of Gene VI have already been shown to be active on their own (e.g. De Tapia et al. 1993). In other words, the EFSA researchers were unable to rule out a hazard to public health or the environment.

In general, viral genes expressed in plants raise both agronomic and human health concerns (reviewed in Latham and Wilson 2008). This is because many viral genes function to disable their host in order to facilitate pathogen invasion. Often, this is achieved by incapacitating specific anti-pathogen defenses. Incorporating such genes could clearly lead to undesirable and unexpected outcomes in agriculture. Furthermore, viruses that infect plants are often not that different from viruses that infect humans. For example, sometimes the genes of human and plant viruses are interchangeable, while on other occasions inserting plant viral fragments as transgenes has caused the genetically altered plant to become susceptible to an animal virus (Dasgupta et al. 2001). Thus, in various ways, inserting viral genes accidentally into crop plants and the food supply confers a significant potential for harm.

New $7 Cup of Coffee at #Starbucks

starfucks coffee
I’m like the last person in the video, it all taste the same to me. I drink Maxwell House by the pot and spend on a 30oz container which makes many cups, what many spend on a cup. Never could figure that shit out. Carried a Stanley stainless steel thermos for decades.
If you pay $7 for a cup of coffee, shut the fk up complaining about $4 a gallon gas.


 

#Corexit : Dispersants make #Oil spills 52 times more toxic – #BP

Synergistic toxicity of Macondo crude oil and dispersant Corexit 9500A® to the Brachionus plicatilis species complex (Rotifera)

Abstract

Using the marine rotifer Brachionus plicatilis acute toxicity tests, we estimated the toxicity of Corexit 9500A®, propylene glycol, and Macondo oil. Ratios of 1:10, 1:50 and 1:130 for Corexit 9500A®:Macondo oil mixture represent: maximum exposure concentrations, recommended ratios for deploying Corexit (1:10–1:50), 1:130 the actual dispersant:oil ratio used in the Deep Water Horizon spill. Corexit 9500A® and oil are similar in their toxicity. However, when Corexit 9500A® and oil are mixed, toxicity to B. manjavacas increases up to 52-fold. Extrapolating these results to the oil released by the Macondo well, suggests underestimation of increased toxicity from Corexit application. We found small differences in sensitivity among species of the B. plicatilis species complex, likely reflecting phylogenetic similarity. Just 2.6% of the water-accommodated fraction of oil inhibited rotifer cyst hatching by 50%, an ecologically significant result because rotifer cyst in sediments are critical resources for the recolonization of populations each Spring.

BP Oil Corexit Gulf of Mexico

This photograph shows windrows of emulsified oil (bright orange) sprayed with dispersant. The photo was taken on April 26, 2010 as part of an aerial observation overflight.

Britain banned some formulations of the dispersant Corexit more than a decade ago.

BP to use less lethal dispersant, maybe ..
EPA demands less-toxic dispersant

The Environmental Protection Agency informed BP officials late Wednesday that the company has 24 hours to choose a less-toxic form of chemical dispersants to break up its oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, according to government sources familiar with the decision, and must apply the new form of dispersants within 72 hours of submitting the list of alternatives.

The move is significant, because it suggests federal officials are now concerned that the unprecedented use of chemical dispersants could pose a significant threat to the Gulf of Mexico’s marine life. BP has been using two forms of dispersants, Corexit 9500A and Corexit 9527A, and so far has applied 600,000 gallons on the surface and 55,000 underwater.[ That’s 15595 barrels if measured in terms of oil ]

“Dispersants have never been used in this volume before,” said an administration official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the decision hasn’t been formally announced. “This is a large amount of dispersants being used, larger amounts than have ever been used, on a pipe that continues to leak oil and that BP is still trying to cap.”

The new policy applies to both surface and undersea application, according to sources, and comes as the EPA has just posted BP’s own results from monitoring the effect that underwater application of chemical dispersants has had in terms of toxicity, dissolved oxygen and effectiveness.

An EPA official said the agency would make an announcement on the matter later Thursday.

BP oil spill and the Toxic Air it created

Breathing Toxic Oil Vapors ?

Many of us in the southeast knew this was going to happen. It was inevitable. What else could come from the use of dispersants used to break up the massive oil spill into a micro spill.

For the last 4 days I have had a sore throat. And here I thought I was catching something. Little did I know it was the vapors. ‘Toxic Vapors’.

It started with irritation in the nose and sinus. The feeling in my sinus reminded me of swimming all day in chlorinated water. Do you remember that burning feeling ? I then started to have little chest congestion, then the sore throat. After being outside for a good part of the day yesterday, last night my eyes were bothering me. Burning and itching, like there was sand in them. The feeling reminded me of the effects on the eyes after welding without the protective goggles or helmet, more specifically, the protective lens. I could hardly sleep last night from the irritation to many of my senses and nagging headache.

As of this writing, BP has used 1,072,514 gallons of what they call surface dispersant. This is dispersant sprayed into the air, which then drift down on to the oil slick to break it down. They have also used 771,272 gallons of subsea dispersant. For a total of 1,843,786 gallons of dispersant used at this time. I believe the number to be greater than what is being reported. Why ? Because on July 2, 2010, 64 days into the oil spill they had used a total of 1,620,000 gallons, more or less of toxic dispersant. So … since July 2, 2010 until the latest report retrieved today July 23, 2010, they have only used 223,786 gallons of dispersant in the past 21 days.

I wonder if many people are feeling the way I feel, and are writing it off as something else as I did at the beginning ? I have no proof as to what I have experienced is due to the dispersant. But there is better that 50% that it is. I have also talked to 6 others yesterday. They all mention a sore throat, and two of them mention sinus irritation. And just as in the video, this came about after being out in the rain.


 
I have many more files during the BP oil spill and videos too. Maybe I’ll get them uploaded one day 🙂
