In These New Times

A new paradigm for a post-imperial world

Archive for the ‘Ecological and Public Health Crisis’ Category

The reckless depredations of corporate power and neo-Malthusian enthusiasts within the elite threaten our environment and our very survival. EM radiation,disappearing bees and pollinators, heavy metal toxicity, GM crops and soil depletion are amongst the most immediate dangers we face.

School districts, school boards and school medical health officers have been notified that Lloyd’s of London has now excluded any liability coverage for injuries, “directly or indirectly arising out of, resulting from or contributed to by electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic radiation, electromagnetism, radio waves or noise.” This would include the microwave radiation emitting from the commercial wi-fi transmitters and wireless devices in our schools.

The oil glut and an inevitable oil price rebound

Posted by seumasach on December 6, 2014

Oil Price

1st December, 2014

The world is awash in oil, I’m hearing. The problem is, it’s fairly expensive oil.

Take for example Canada. The country that has managed to increase its production of oil by a million barrels a day over the last decade. But almost all of that increase has come from oil sands. If you consider only conventional crude oil, Canadian production today would be a third of a million barrels a day lower than at its peak in 1973.

A must view, including footage from the US embassy affair in the sixties. Quite a lot of it is in English for those of you who don’t understand Spanish

Secrecy And Lies: Government Collusion With The GM Biotech Sector In Britain

RINF

17th April, 2014

In 2012, the current BritishEnvironment, Food and Rural Affairs Secretary Owen Paterson called concerns over the use of GM foods “complete nonsense” in an outright attack on valid concerns about GMOs (1). Since then, through comments and speeches, he has consistently voiced unqualified support for the GM food industry.

Possible effects of electromagnetic fields from phone masts on a population of white stork (Ciconia ciconia)

Living Planet

Monitoring of a white stork population in Valladolid (Spain) in the vicinity of Cellular Phone Base Stations was carried out, with the objective of detecting possible effects. The total productivity, in the nests located within 200meters of antennae, was 0􏰀86±0􏰀16. For those located further than 300m, the result was practically doubled, with an average of 1􏰀6±0􏰀14. Very significant differences among the total productivity were found (U = 240􏰁 p = 0􏰀001, Mann-Whitney test). In partial productivity, an average of 1􏰀44 ± 0􏰀16 was obtained for the first group (within 200m of antennae) and of 1􏰀65±0􏰀13 for the second (further than 300m of antennae), respectively. The difference between both groups of nests in this case were not statistically significant (U = 216􏰁 P = 0􏰀26, Mann-Whitney Test U). Twelve nests (40%) located within than 200m of antennae never had chicks, while only one (3.3%) located further than 300m had no chicks. The electric field intensity was higher on nests within 200m (2􏰀36±0􏰀82V/m) than on nests further than 300m (0􏰀53 ± 0􏰀82 V/m). Interesting behavioral observations of the white stork nesting sites located within 100m of one or several cellsite antennae were carried out. These results are compatible with the possibility that microwaves are interfering with the reproduction of white storks and would corroborate the results of laboratory research by other authors.
