A third of the world’s people already face deadly heat waves. It could be nearly three-quarters by 2100.

Nearly one-third of the global population suffers deadly levels of heat for at least 20 days during the year, new research suggests. And by the end of the century, thanks to climate change, this number could climb above 70 percent.

Certain parts of the world, the researchers note, will be harder hit than others. Tropical regions, where temperatures are already high for much of the year, will see many more days of deadly heat than other parts of the world. Under a business-as-usual climate scenario, they may face these conditions almost year-round by 2100.

The new study, published Monday in the journal Nature Climate Change, underscores the growing threat that rising temperatures pose to public health. The research focuses specifically on heat and humidity conditions known to increase the risk of human mortality — generally speaking, that’s when temperatures climb above 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit (the average human body temperature), but can also include cooler conditions with higher levels of humidity.

“We found this very unique threshold of temperature and humidity that allows us to identify why all these people die in all these cities around the world,” said lead study author Camilo Mora, a geography expert at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. “It makes a lot of sense from the human physiology side of things. The way in which the body cools down is by sweating — the evaporation of that sweat cools you down. But when it’s humid, that sweat doesn’t evaporate, so the heat that the body generates, instead of going away, it stays in your body.”

A number of deadly heat waves have made international headlines in the past few decades, the researchers point out. The Chicago heat wave of 1995, for instance, is believed to have caused more than 700 deaths in less than a week after temperatures soared above 100 degrees. A 2010 heat wave in Russia during July and August may have killed more than 10,000 people.

The researchers examined more than 900 published papers documenting cases of extreme heat and excess mortality between 1980 and 2014. Altogether, the papers identified 783 individual events in 164 cities around the world. The researchers used these studies to identify the heat and humidity thresholds that lead to increased mortality rates.

A majority of the reported cases occurred in mid-latitude cities, largely in Europe and North America. According to Elisaveta Petkova, a researcher at Columbia University’s Earth Institute who was not involved with the study, most research on climate-related mortalities has tended to focus on Western nations, and the new study highlights a relative shortage of data from other parts of the globe. However, the researchers were able to find at least some information on the climate conditions that led to heat-related deaths for locations throughout much of the world.

By looking at historical climate data, the researchers determined that about 13 percent of all the world’s land area — home to about 30 percent of the total human population — had faced these deadly conditions for 20 or more days during the year 2000. And this number is only expected to grow.

Using model simulations, the researchers investigated what might happen under several potential future climate scenarios. They found that even with substantial efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, nearly 50 percent of the world’s population will experience 20 or more days of deadly heat by the year 2100. Under a business-as-usual scenario, that percentage climbs to nearly 74 percent.

“We’ve run out of good choices for the future,” Mora said. “Right now, when it comes to heat waves, our choices are between bad and terrible.”

It’s difficult to say how many more deaths will occur as a result of the extreme heat; that depends on how human societies deal with the problem. Communities could try to lessen the risks by increasing the use of air conditioning or putting better heat warning systems in place, the researchers note. According to Petkova, successful heat adaptation strategies rely strongly on the public’s awareness of the danger and its access to shelter, cooling devices or other tools they can use to protect themselves.

In fact, Mora said, the literature suggests that the number deaths caused by heat waves may already be decreasing, perhaps because of better adaptation efforts. But adapting to extreme heat doesn’t prevent the heat waves from occurring in the first place, meaning that more vulnerable members of society — the elderly, the frail or those who don’t have access to air conditioning — still face the risk of heat-related death. And changes in the population structure will likely play an important role in future heat-related mortality, Petkova said, as rapidly aging populations in some countries may be particularly susceptible to heat waves.

So while an increase in deadly heat waves may be inevitable, the research underscores the importance of working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and minimize the future impact of climate change as much as possible, Mora said. And he added that even less vulnerable communities — those with higher incomes and greater access to air conditioning, for instance — shouldn’t get too comfortable. Even in those places, severe heat waves can pose serious risks for the world and its inhabitants.

For one thing, an increase in the use of air conditioning could place a heavy strain on the electrical grid, Mora said. And extreme heat may force people to spend more and more of their time indoors.

“We will become prisoners in our homes,” Mora said.

Alabama Replaces Work Requirements on Food Stamps… Stats Show Massive Amount of People Leaving Program

Give a man a fish, and he’ll eat for a day. Hand him an EBT card with an endless food stamp program, and he’ll never work again.

That may not be the most memorable proverb, but it explains what many conservatives have suspected for decades.

Now, the state of Alabama has confirmed it: People become dependent on government handouts when there’s no incentive to keep a job.

According to Alabama Media Group, 13 counties in the southern state recently reinstated work requirements for their government food programs, and the results were staggering. Food stamp usage dropped by 85 percent.

Before this year, those counties waived the work requirements as a response to high unemployment. Now that the economy is improving, the requirements were put back in place — and the number of adults receiving taxpayer-funded food stamps fell from 5,538 to only 831.

“Based on the trend, the number of (able-bodied adults without dependents) recipients for SNAP benefits is expected to continue to decline statewide and in the formerly 13 exempted counties,” stated John Hardy, a representative from the Alabama Department of Human Resources.

“Able bodied” is the key term. Contrary to liberal fear mongering, the work requirement only applies to adults between the ages of 18 and 50 who do not have dependents, and are physically able to seek employment.

In other words, a disabled mother is still able to receive benefits, but a single person who is fully capable of working but chooses not to due to laziness will now have some explaining to do.

Employment or participation in an approved career training program both fulfill the new state requirements.

Food stamp users throughout the United States cost taxpayers around $71 billion annually.

Enrollment in government assistance programs skyrocketed under Barack Obama’s eight years in office, but President Donald Trump has pledged to reduce the number of able bodied workers who are defrauding the system.

Here are the top cities where U-Haul says people are packing up and moving

Houston, Texas

Houston, Texas

It’s moving season, and new data shows which U.S. cities are top destinations for people looking to start anew.

Residents flocked to Houston and Chicago, according to moving company U-Haul, which took the top two spots on its 2016 ranking. The 50 cities ranked by U-Haul spanned every region across the U.S., including warmer climes in the South, the coastal pillars Manhattan and Los Angeles, and tourist hotspots like Las Vegas and Orlando.

Houston “is growing by leaps and bounds,” the report said, citing the city’s booming jobs market and active construction that’s reshaping its skyline. The Texas city is also a beneficiary of the shale boom, which is thriving as the U.S. churns out oil and gas at historical levels.

U-Haul’s migration report is based on the number of truck rentals bound for each city, noting that it doesn’t effectively track do-it-yourself moves. Each top-ranked city’s noted similar draws: business growth, affordable housing, and lively social and cultural scenes.

Major factors for a big move might include a better job, retirement, more family or a new home, the report said. Below are the top 10 cities, including their rank from 2015.=

Top cities included Charlotte, NC at number 10, which moved up 4 spots from its prior ranking; and Kansas City, Philadelphia and Brooklyn, NY — all of which remained stable at the number 9, 8 and 7 positions, respectively.

Often viewed as an American “underdog,” the City of Brotherly Love is on the upswing, with more businesses creating jobs and new residents attracted to the cultural and food offerings. Further north, Brooklyn — quickly becoming one of the most expensive places in the U.S. to live — offers a “homier” environment than Manhattan, and all the offerings most residents need.

Separately, Orlando, FL dipped a notch, from number 4 to 3. The city boasts a diverse population and variety of public and private capital investments that are driving job growth.

Below is the complete ranking of each city:

‘People are in meltdown mode’: Inside the Republican donor class panic about Trump

WASHINGTON — Pangs of fear and frustration are rippling through the Republican donor and operative classes as Donald Trump’s self-inflicted wounds threaten to fully derail the GOP legislative agenda and tarnish the party’s brand headed into the midterms.

At a Miami donor retreat and at a high-powered Washington dinner, on Capitol Hill and at political firms across the country, Republican donors and operatives this week watched the barrage of bad headlines about Trump with a mixture of awe, angst and anger, worrying about the political implications for their Republican majorities — and about the legal implications for the president.

“If you’re not concerned, you’re not paying attention,” said Austin Barbour, a Mississippi-based GOP strategist and veteran fundraiser, who is primarily worried that the Republican agenda on Capitol Hill is being hamstrung amid a constant series of controversies involving the White House.

“President Trump was elected because people believed in what he was saying, that he was going to turn the country around, bring more and better jobs to the country, fix the issues with immigration. … They’ve got to deliver on that, they’ve got to be able to work with Congress to get things done.”

Interviews with Republicans in and close to the donor community revealed growing worries that Congress has been knocked off track by the problems engulfing Trump — and that it will be enormously challenging to get back on track as the contours of 2018 congressional races begin to take shape.

“If you look at the coalition that ultimately got Trump over the top, he had his base — he probably still has his base — but he had to convince mainstream establishment Republicans, many in the high finance world of politics, to come along with him,” said former Rep. David Jolly, a Florida Republican who is considering another run but is waiting, in part, to see what the environment looks like for the GOP.

“After Jeb (Bush) got out, others got out, you saw the establishment finance Republicans, many of them holding their nose, recognize that they want a Republican in the White House. That’s the group that may be eroding right now,” Jolly said.

The Republican president is grappling with reports that he shared classified information with Russian officials, and that he encouraged then-FBI Director James Comey to end a probe into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. That report, which first surfaced in The New York Times and which the White House denies, comes a week after Trump fired Comey, who was leading an investigation into possible ties between Russia and the Trump campaign.

Asked which of those developments tripping up Trump was most troubling, one major GOP donor and fundraiser replied, “It’s hard to choose.”

The source, who described the GOP donor community as “shell-shocked” and more inclined to focus on the House and Senate right now, ultimately pointed to the reports of pressuring Comey. If true, it “meets a broad definition of obstruction of justice,” the donor said, adding that it’s likely that Democrats would “go forward, at some point,” with impeachment proceedings.

“That’s certainly going to bog down any legislative agenda,” the Republican added.

At a gathering of the Republican Governors Association at a Trump resort in the Miami area this week, donors were also anxious, consumed by the feeling that “it’s going to be impossible to get anything done,” said one Republican operative in attendance.

“They’re flipping out like everybody else, of course they are,” said the operative, going on to add, “People are in meltdown mode.”

An RGA member who attended the gathering wouldn’t go that far, but did acknowledge some feelings of “frustration.”

“They’d like to see things move forward faster,” the RGA member said. “There is a frustration … that none of the undersecretaries have been appointed. I think we’ve got to start moving on policy, but at the end of it, people are still cautiously optimistic and hopeful things will still be moving ahead.”

The White House did not respond to a request for comment, though Trump received back-up from House Speaker Paul Ryan, who said Wednesday morning that he does still have confidence in the president.

At a dinner at the luxe Willard hotel in downtown Washington this week, however, there was a recognition among attendees that it has been difficult to move forward amid swirling Trump-related controversies. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who spoke at the event hosted by the International Republican Institute, said that the current dynamics are at “a point where it’s of Watergate size and scale … the shoes continue to drop, and every couple days there’s a new aspect.”

For many Republicans — for now — that continual shoe-dropping, and its ability to knock D.C. off course, is the more immediate problem. Republicans control all of Washington, ratcheting up the pressure to have a record to run on in 2018.

“At this time, as we speak today, I’m more concerned with, this is getting their legislative agenda off track,” Barbour said. “And listen, they’ve got a year to get stuff done before the elections in 2018, and I know members of Congress and President Trump, these guys want to get this stuff done. But they’re just so off message. They’ve got to find a way to get back to focusing on what people care about, what people elected him to do. If not, they’re in real trouble.”

Meanwhile, lawmakers and donors are also growing increasingly concerned with the substance of the developments besieging Trump. Some Republicans have called for a special prosecutor or independent commission as it relates to Russian involvement in the 2016 election. And Republicans have joined Democrats in stressing the need for Comey to testify.

Taken together, some Republicans have privately begun to doubt whether Trump will serve a full term (Trump has already filed for re-election in 2020).

“I’m finding it hard to find people who say, ‘No, this isn’t that bad,'” said one Republican operative with close ties to the donor and lobbying worlds. “It’s gradients of bad, (from) ‘we were wrong before, he’ll survive,’ to ‘this is the beginning of the end.’ I’m not finding anyone who says this isn’t a problem. Is this the beginning of a problem that knocks him out? … What’s the over-under on him making it four years? That’s the conversation.”

One Republican bundler who has worked closely with the Republican National Committee in the past was incensed, saying that Trump had actually done the very things that conservatives had fretted Hillary Clinton might hypothetically do — intentionally or not — when it came to sharing classified information with adversaries.

“These are not minor and insignificant issues,” the source said. “We pilloried the Democratic nominee for creating the conditions where that possibly could happen. He did it! He admits to it! I don’t know how you overcome that, when that was the cornerstone of folks not voting for her. So here we are, and I guess shame on us.”

The First Cursed

I decided to write this poem after a day of witnessing and observing the decay in the world with the justified conclusion that humanity and all existence must end by any means necessary!

 

The First Cursed

In the abyss lies the ruins of my dreams
A burnt sacrifice to the gods on the cinters
Hatred and revenge, the two sisters to my brother
For was it my fault I was born a human being?

Never shall I forget the ways of my ancestors!
I was created to be a knight, not a traitor
For to die would be bliss in this abyss
An existence for the flowers in your hand

The hatred grows in my heart
The blood from the roots of the trees gives me life
And also yields pains for my wounds
This world was created from my pain
My longing for your triumpy a cry out in pain to extinguish my feelings, hatreds, rebellions

I suffer no more for the unnecessary
The questions never cease- why me?
The fire in my soul never goes away
Chained to my hate forever
Unchanged, unfulfilled but I remain for eternity
A thorn in the eye of humanity forever!

NEW APP ALLOWS PEOPLE WORLDWIDE TO “STAND STILL” IN MEMORY OF HOLOCAUST VICTIMS (LOL…..)

 

A new application, Standing Still, allows Diaspora Jews and Israel supporters to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day by listening to the siren sound in Israel in real time anywhere in the world.

The application was developed by Israelis Amir Zwickel and his wife Rotem Lev Zwickel in collaboration with The Foundation for the Benefit of Holocaust Victims in Israel and the Lone Soldier Center – in memory of Michael Levin.

 

Zwickel and his wife relocated from Israel to New York over a year ago, just after Holocaust Memorial Day and just before Memorial Day for Fallen Soldiers and Terror Victims (Yom HaZikaron)- two days on which a siren sounds in commemoration of Holocaust victims and fallen soldiers, respectively.

Zwickel recalled listening to the siren in real time on YouTube on his computer from his NY apartment.

“And then we thought of the idea, why not develop a simple application that could allow Israelis, Jews, or supporters of Israel who are temporarily or permanently abroad, to connect to what is happening in Israel during these important moments and hear the siren that is so deeply etched in our Israeliness, at the same time that it is happening in Israel,” he said.

“It is impossible to exaggerate the importance of the connection between Jews in the Diaspora to the Israeli present and reality for the future of Israel,” he added.

The application aims to share “the most Israeli days” with the world and invites users to “be a part of our community” and to “feel just like in Israel, even if only for two minutes.”

Users can download the application onto their phones and schedule to hear the siren either in real time or schedule an alternative time to stand still in remembrance.

“Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoa) and Memorial Day for Fallen Soldiers and Terror Victims (Yom Hazikaron) are engraved in the Israeli DNA, and are a significant part of our culture,” the application states.

“We welcome you to stand with us for the memory of the 6 million who are not here with us, for the ones who fought and gave their lives to protect us, for the survivors who stand tall and proud until this day, and for the ones who are risking their lives so we can live free.”

Additionally, the application allows Diaspora Jews and Israel supporters to donate to Holocaust survivors and lone soldiers in need via The Foundation for the Benefit of Holocaust Victims in Israel and the Lone Soldier Center.

“We were impressed with the sacred work these two bodies do and the wonderful people who volunteer there that we were privileged to meet,” said Zwickel.

Former Likud Minister Limor Livnat, who serves as the volunteer chairwoman of the Foundation for the Benefit of Holocaust Victims in Israel said in a statement to The Jerusalem Post that she sees “great importance” in collaborating with initiatives, such as the application, that facilitate Holocaust remembrance to world Jewry.

“We must all pay a moral debt to the some 200,000 Holocaust survivors, living among us, who have gone through horrors that we will never really understand,” she said. “Each and every one of us has an obligation to act so that Holocaust survivors living among us will be able to live their lives with dignity.” Livnat said she views this is a “sacred mission” and the reason she chose to head The Foundation on a voluntary basis.

“The life story of these heroes must be engraved in our hearts and burned into the national and international consciousness,” she said.

Horrifying New Study Shows People Willing to Hurt Complete Strangers Just to Obey Authority

http://www.renegadetribune.com/horrifying-new-study-shows-people-willing-hurt-complete-strangers-just-obey-authority/

 

By Justin Gardner of The Free Thought Project

For the state to make war, it must convince the populace that killing other people is just and necessary. Many different rationalizations have cropped up over the millennia – from controlling resources to exterminating races to “fighting terrorism” – but murdering strangers requires a particular obedience to authority.

Fifty years ago, psychologist Stanley Milgram conducted the Milgram experiment, which measured the willingness of study participants to hurt others, even when it conflicts with their personal conscience, in the interest of obeying authority. The results, published in 1963, showed that a very high percentage of participants were willing to follow orders and cause serious injury to others.

One would think that 50 years later – after the lessons of World War II, the horror of Vietnam, the bloody folly of the Iraq invasion, and the long list of brutal military crusades – humanity would have a greater aversion to harming others at the behest of authority. However, a replication of the Milgram experiment shows that people are as willing as ever to obey authority to the harm their fellow man.

The title is direct, “Would you deliver an electric shock in 2015?” and the answer, according to the results of this replication study, is yes. Social psychologists from SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities in Poland replicated a modern version of the Milgram experiment and found results similar to studies conducted 50 years earlier…

The researchers recruited 80 participants (40 men and 40 women), with an age range from 18 to 69, for the study. Participants had up to 10 buttons to press, each a higher “shock” level. The results show that the level of participants’ obedience towards instructions is similarly high to that of the original Milgram studies.

They found that 90% of the people were willing to go to the highest level in the experiment.

Study co-author Tomasz Grzyb noted that the vast majority of people claimed they would “never behave in such a manner” as the original Milgram experiments showed, but nevertheless, their study “illustrated the tremendous power of the situation the subjects are confronted with and how easily they can agree to things which they find unpleasant.”

Gryzb concludes that things haven’t really changed, and “a striking majority of subjects are still willing to electrocute a helpless individual.

Results like these do not bode well for a world in which war-making has become an immensely profitable enterprise, despite Eisenhower’s warning against the rise of the military-industrial complex. To keep the bombs and bullets – and the profits – flowing, the state needs to perpetuate the fear of a bogeyman. The ‘war on terror’ is the excuse du jour to murder strangers en masse for the sake of “following orders.”

Fear of the unknown and aggression toward outgroups (racial groups, minorities, etc.) can be a powerful vehicle for authoritarianism; unfortunately, we see the potential for this in the U.S. Harming others, even when conflicted with one’s personal conscience, can be rationalized when it comes to obeying authority.

Some of the study participants in the first Milgram experiment were truly conflicted, showing signs such as “sweating, trembling, stuttering, biting their lips, groaning, digging their fingernails into their skin” as they administered what they believed were increasingly powerful electric shocks to what sounded like screaming subjects.

Milgram wrote:

The extreme willingness of adults to go to almost any lengths on the command of an authority constitutes the chief finding of the study and the fact most urgently demanding explanation.

Ordinary people, simply doing their jobs, and without any particular hostility on their part, can become agents in a terrible destructive process. Moreover, even when the destructive effects of their work become patently clear, and they are asked to carry out actions incompatible with fundamental standards of morality, relatively few people have the resources needed to resist authority.

He advanced two theories, one of conformism and the other of the ‘state agent,’ where Milgram said “the essence of obedience consists in the fact that a person comes to view themselves as the instrument for carrying out another person’s wishes, and they therefore no longer see themselves as responsible for their actions. Once this critical shift of viewpoint has occurred in the person, all of the essential features of obedience follow.”

Now more than ever, we must recognize that obeying orders is no justification for carrying out mass murder. We must question the overt and covert machinations of the State, in its strategy to maintain a compliant mindset among the populace that causing harm to others is good and necessary to obey authority.

Former Nasa Engineer Speaks Out ‘Most People Unaware’ Of Weather Modification

A former NASA aerospace avionics engineer has been working directly with GeoengineeringWatch (with state of the art UV metering equipment supplied by GeoengineeringWatch.org) to measure the dangerously high UV radiation that is now bombarding the surface of our planet. This NASA engineer’s very dire report is below. Those who are most aware of their surroundings have long since taken note of the growing intensity of the sun.

This NASA engineer’s very dire report is below. Those who are most aware of their surroundings have long since taken note of the growing intensity of the sun. This change is not due to increased solar activity, rather, it is a dire symptom of Earth’s rapidly disintegrating ozone layer. Though there are many anthropogenic factors negatively impacting our essential ozone layer, ongoing covert climate engineering programs are by far the most damaging.  Many mainstream and “official sources” falsely claim that the southern hemisphere ozone hole is “recovering” (in order to pacify populations), however,  front-line data does not support the “ozone recovery” official narrative. Since the start of this century UV levels comparable to the surface of Mars have been recorded. The same sources of false “ozone layer recovery” data don’t even mention the massive and growing northern hemisphere ozone hole.

As the 20th century drew to a close, the rapidly increasing scale of northern hemisphere ozone depletion was becoming very apparent.

More recent data has been increasingly difficult to gain from monitoring sources, the firing of scientists involved in ozone depletion research is one major reason why. GeoengineeringWatch.org has long since been measuring and monitoring the rising UV radiation levels.

The expanse of the ozone depleted regions continues to expand.

The impacts of the extreme UV radiation exposure is very evident on the sun exposed side of many tree species and specimens. All life forms that are exposed to the increasingly excessive UV radiation are being affected, including whales and plankton.

Effects of solar UV radiation on biomolecules, cellular components and physiological responses. (Diagram credit: Royal Society of Chemistry)

If the ozone layer completely collapses, all exposed life forms will collapse with it. Climate engineering is decimating the ozone layer, all of Earth’s life support systems are at risk. The very dire report below (addressing extreme UV radiation dangers) was assembled for GeoengineeringWatch.org by a retired NASA aerospace avionics engineer. Out of concern for his safety, we must keep this individual anonymous at this time.

Critical Mass In Human Understanding

Sound simple?  It’s not.

Critical Mass in Human Understanding is defined by this author as:

The percentage of World population required before a new direction is selected and used to correct a situation or program that has become a threat to Earth’s biosphere and/or human habitation.

In further writing, the author will use “Critical Mass” for short.

When dealing with various Critical Mass issues, it is first necessary to separate them into two basic categories – those are:  Military and Civilian.

The reason behind the two categories is simple, the Military will require extensive resources to affect Critical Mass, whereas Civilian – being less of a ‘threat between countries’ category, will not have as severe draconian governmental oversight.

Earth’s Climate is the most critical issue, and affects all populations throughout the planet.  While discussions concerning Weather Modification Programs are taking place to affect a ‘controlled response’ to adverse climate conditions, the subject is being discussed as though GeoEngineering has not yet been implemented.

Quite the opposite is true, and it is the adverse effects from this GeoEngineering that have exacerbated the climatology changes due to industrialized waste, fossil fuel consumption, and out of control consumerism.

At present, it is estimated that a majority percentage of Earth’s population remain unaware of current Global Weather Modification Programs and GeoEngineering.

In order that Humanity, and our biosphere to survive – this must change.

Scientists are unwilling to comment on current weather patterns and the severe increase in global temperatures for various reasons – the 2 biggest reasons:  money and fear.  When a scientist offers an opinion, he is often asked to “back up his opinion with facts” – which would require a ‘course of study’ – and no-one is likely to offer financial support to establish such a program study – the net result; the scientist keeps their opinion silent, and out of print.  The scientist is usually employed by a university or corporation with funding – in the case of universities it is grant money, for corporations it is considered research – and only research in the area designated by that corporation, if there are deviations in the course of study, grant money is withdrawn, and the corporation will discontinue the scientist’s employment’.

Remember the great NASA layoff in the mid 90’s?  Over 15,000 employees were laid off.  Some of those employees actually knew what they were doing – some were ‘dead weight’.  The author was at NASA Ames/Dryden when this was announced by Sam Golden – it truly was a dark day for NASA.  Federal Grant money for several programs were discontinued.

Not knowing where money will come from to pay basic necessities like food, shelter, and clothing – this can change your attitude from good to bad – in a heartbeat.  Let’s add on a family to support – the world standard of 2 ½ children, and wife.  Tell me what you are likely to do when your hunger overcomes reason?  Not too hard to consider seeing that your children come first.

The author has personal experience with those engineers and scientists that were laid off, with IQ’s over 180 – their end resolve is that once again employed they will never offer any opinion that may show the slightest deviation from their program structure – period.

Here is the end result from that position of Scientific Non-Involvement:

By the time Critical Mass of Human Understanding to the Negative Effects of Global Weather Modification Programs (GEOENGINEERING) is reached, the Earth’s Upper Ozone Layer will be destroyed.

With no Protective Ozone Radiation Shield, All Life on Earth will die.

Quite a conundrum.  At what point does the scientist and engineer become involved before total anthropogenic global climate destruction occurs?

The answer is simple – they won’t.  Those scientists and engineers will suffer with the rest of us until one day, they look up and finally see the truth – and then it’s all over.

I won’t say this is true of all our science partners, the author is but one of many, who understands the criticality of damage done by GeoEngineering and Global Weather Modification Programs – and for the last 4 years this author has studied the upper Ozone Layer and determined that the final destruction of this layer will be the ‘last straw’ before human extinction.

Given the current exponential rate of decay, 2025 is the year that plants and animals – including humans, will begin to die in massive numbers.  It will be a slow, painful death – for all life and humanity.

This is not to say that irreparable damage has not already occurred.  Destruction of our Biosphere did not occur overnight – it is the direct result of countless anthropogenic activities including 70 years of GeoEngineering and  Weather Modification Programs.

The author is an Aerospace Avionics Engineer who worked at NASA on High Altitude Research Aircraft in the mid 90’s, specifically to study the Ozone Layer.

This aerospace engineer goes on to say:

“The scientists involved with the projects understood how critical the upper Ozone Layer is, especially when it is only about a quarter of an inch thick, and very fragile.  They knew then the Ozone Layer was being destroyed by industrial waste, especially the Chlorofluorocarbons, that was the great R12 refrigerant ordeal, and now by Global Weather Modification Programs.   The top scientists in the world do not understand the Earth’s Atmospheric model, I don’t care how many computer programs there are, it’s too complex, and besides, someone must write the computer program to begin with that does understand the complex atmospheric interactions, and that person doesn’t exist.   Sadly, most of the scientists that did have a clue are no longer alive – which leaves humanity in dire straits.  Personally, I don’t think Humanity has a chance of surviving past 2025, and with what is coming, I’m not looking forward to starvation and disease.”

Immediate attention to our Biosphere is required NOW.  GeoEngineering and Global Weather Modification Programs must STOP.

How about this statement for achieving Critical Mass:

What will you do today, given that tomorrow the Ozone Layer is no more?

Would you stand in front of a government building – demanding resolve?

Would you consume fewer fossil fuel products?

Would you try to bring awareness of this to others?

Would you quit your job in science or engineering and apply your knowledge to a methodology and action that will heal our dying planet?

With the Military – do you understand what an “Unlawful Order” really is?

Investigate, then do the right thing – protect our planet.  The author is a Veteran, “…against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” – this current situation qualifies as both – pay attention to your oath.

To the banking cartels:  Do you want a planet left after your raping of resources?

Think your underground bunkers will keep you safe?

No, they won’t.

Who will maintain the Nuclear Reactors when you do go underground to avoid extreme UV radiation?  There are over 400 active reactors at present – the nuclear radiation from unattended reactor meltdown will prevent mankind from inhabiting the earth surface for more than 10,000 years – and that’s only the ‘half-life’ – so think again about all that money you’re making from already depleted resources, famine, drought, floods, insurance claims – it’s going to effect you, just like everyone else.

The old statement: “a word to the wise is sufficient” – can you remove yourself from GREED long enough to see the truth?

This paper is your “Shot across the Bow”

The first step is easy:  Stop ALL Geoengineering and Global Weather Modification Programs.

If you get to the first step – the second step will be much easier:  work together to understand our planet BEFORE applying measures that will damage it further.

In the meantime, the author will continue with upper Ozone Layer research – and will continue to sound the alarm of human extinction.

The above chart shows UV “C” radiation from 250 to 300 Nanometers. The data in RED, in the center of the chart, is radiation that is highly damaging to Human DNA/RNA, and should not be detected on the Earth surface. With a healthy Ozone Layer this radiation would be stopped at 100,000 feet.

The destruction of our upper Ozone Layer has progressed for many years. When physicians and various publications advise in higher SPF ratings for sun-screen each year, you can be sure our atmosphere is changing in an extremely negative way. Damage to our trees from UV “B” radiation is being becoming rapidly worse all over the world. Now with UV “C” radiation levels reaching 4.5% (of something that should be ZERO percent) – plan on more birth defects, more cancers, more plant and animal extinctions. This level of radiation is extremely damaging, it kills life forms.

Earth’s upper Ozone Layer is under assault, and is being destroyed by GEOENGINEERING, industrial waste products, and emissions from the oil industry. If immediate cessation of these activities does not happen, total collapse of the Ozone Layer will occur by 2025. The UV levels are already exponentially higher than last year – 2017 will be another record.

If and when total collapse occurs, so will all life on planet Earth. STOP GEOENGINEERING!!!! STOP INDUSTRIAL WASTE!!!!
With no further damage to our Ozone Layer, it is estimated that the repair of our Ozone Layer will require a very extended time frame at best. Total ozone layer recovery may be impossible due to Strontium 90 in the upper atmosphere. There is no known method of removing this contamination which is a leftover from atomic bomb testing.

The data presented in this post was gathered on 02/12/2017 using an ILT950UV Spectral Radiometer, at an altitude of 191 feet, in the Central Valley of California. The calibration date of the Radiometer is 12/16/2016 and traceable to NIST.

As data is gathered, and presented, UV readings can and are escalating to even higher levels.  Take note of the center portion of this graph, when it doubles from measurements of 1.2 uWatts/cm^2 – we will have great difficulty growing crops – food shortage will become the predominant global issue, and damage to our DNA/RNA will not be recoverable. All life forms will suffer.

Due to the increase of energy around the 270 nm region in only 1 week’s time, I found it necessary to write the following paper “Critical Mass in Human Understanding” .

Our most sincere gratitude to this courageous former NASA avionics engineer for his efforts on revealing this extremely dire data. GeoengineeringWatch.org will continue to work directly with him and will continue to post updated information as rapidly as we can. All of us are needed on the critical battle to wake the masses, make your voice heard while it can still make a difference.

Trump Signs Bill Revoking Obama-Era Gun Checks for People With Mental Illnesses

http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/trump-signs-bill-revoking-obama-era-gun-checks-people-mental-n727221

 

President Donald Trump quietly signed a bill into law Tuesday rolling back an Obama-era regulation that made it harder for people with mental illnesses to purchase a gun.

The rule, which was finalized in December, added people receiving Social Security checks for mental illnesses and people deemed unfit to handle their own financial affairs to the national background check database.

Had the rule fully taken effect, the Obama administration predicted it would have added about 75,000 names to that database.

President Barack Obama recommended the now-nullified regulation in a 2013 memo following the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, which left 20 first graders and six others dead. The measure sought to block some people with severe mental health problems from buying guns.

The original rule was hotly contested by gun rights advocates who said it infringed on Americans’ Second Amendment rights. Gun control advocates, however, praised the rule for curbing the availability of firearms to those who may not use them with the right intentions.

Both the House and Senate last week passed the new bill, H.J. Res 40, revoking the Obama-era regulation.

Trump signed the bill into law without a photo op or fanfare. The president welcomed cameras into the oval office Tuesday for the signing of other executive orders and bills. News that the president signed the bill was tucked at the bottom of a White House email alerting press to other legislation signed by the president.

The National Rifle Association “applauded” Trump’s action. Chris Cox, NRA-ILA executive director, said the move “marks a new era for law-abiding gun owners, as we now have a president who respects and supports our arms.”

Everytown For Gun Safety President John Feinblatt said he expected more gun control rollbacks from the Trump administration. In a statement to NBC News, he called the action “just the first item on the gun lobby’s wish list” and accused the National Rifle Association of “pushing more guns, for more people, in more places.”

Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., a leading gun control advocate in Congress, called out Republicans over the move.

“Republicans always say we don’t need new gun laws, we just need to enforce the laws already on the books. But the bill signed into law today undermines enforcement of existing laws that Congress passed to make sure the background check system had complete information,” he said in an emailed statement.

Jews are a People of the Whorehouse

http://www.renegadetribune.com/jews-people-whorehouse/

 

What came first? The Jew or the whorehouse?

Nothing better explains Jews and Judaism than the thesis that they are descendants of temple prostitutes.

Imagine a new temple built by the Greeks, Babylonians, or Egyptians. Prostitutes show up. Some of them get pregnant. The children would know their mother, but not their father. The prostitutes bring their daughters into the business. Their children would know their mother and grandmother, but not their fathers or grandfathers. This could go on for several generations. They would trace themselves down a matrilineal line automatically.

Jewish religious law defines a Jew as anything birthed by a Jew. Now we know why.

We can imagine the construction of the pyramids attracting prostitutes. When the pyramids were completed, the business dries up. Jews have to look for new business, elsewhere, creating an Exodus.

This sets up Jewish identity issues: the need for identity, the lack of identity, and a manufactured identity to fill in the hole and even, over compensate, for their lack of identity. Jews are not a created people, but a chosen people. If you have to be chosen, then you’re not an indigenous people. There goes your claims to any land.

Jews spend a lot of time asking who is a Jew, meaning, “who is my father?” They don’t know. It could be anyone, even Satan. After all, anything birthed by a Jew is a Jew.

Being the spawn of temple prostitutes explains the mongrel nature of Jews. Since Jews would be social outcasts, their spawn would inbreed with spawn to produce the mongrel Jewish phenotype. With temple prostitution, we find the in-group/out-group dynamic, nepotism, and ethnic networking.

This is why you see Jews caste in many colors; yet, they constitute a distinct biological group, with well-known dominant, unappealing and embarrassing, common characteristics. Who but the most ugly and unappealing would need to go to a prostitute, anyways? These terrible traits would pass into and down the mother’s line with ease. This line acts as a sewage line for the worst genes to produce the Barbara Spectres of the world.

The legacy of prostitution explains the dominance of Jewish women in the Jewish household, whereas, males are circumcised, and have no productive economic role, except as, parasites on Gentiles. The Jewish prostitute was the bread winner. The lack of masculinity among Jews and a compulsive need to gain resources through subversive non-masculine means: rent-seeking, legal monopolies, management roles, using hype and words, rather than authentic direct conquest, construction, and farming, all point to a prostitution-origin thesis. Besides circumcision, prostitution would explain the need for infant or child sacrifice.

Judaism marked the transition from females to males running Jewish prostitution rings.

Jews prostituted their wives and daughters in Argentina just in the last 100 years.

Many Jewish women are amongst those who are running the houses. They were not pleased with my visit. They did not like the questions that I asked them or the arguments that I put forward against the continuation of their ‘trade.’”[1]

This thesis explains why Jews are devoid of sexual standards. If you had them, you wouldn’t stay in business.

Jews would not have been raised with sexual standards, but raised to cater to their absence. This would explain the Jewish propensity to debase the wider culture, and bring down sexual and breeding standards. It’s good business. How could temple prostitution survive propriety and concern for racial purity? This would explain why Jews want prostitution legal and why it would produce social chaos in societies without abortion and contraception.  This would explain why Jews are run porn and prostitution in recent times and drop the F-bombs liberally in comedy and casual conversations.

The Need for a Jewish Miracle

When people are helpless, they often appeal to a god or gods with power to deliver the impossible, a miracle.

A good example is the Muslim. He grows up under the boot of the pasha or sheik who has a harem. He has no power and no chance of a harem himself, so he appeals to god. His paradise is a heaven with 72 blow-up dolls, virgins who don’t smell or bleed, and who become virgins again and again. This god and this heaven give him a sense of power which he craves and lacks on earth. Likewise, some whites want the impossible. They want to be loved by non-whites. They want a world of peace and love. This is the impossible that attracts weak whites to Christianity. They will grovel to be loved by non-whites who hate their guts. It will take divine intervention for non-whites to love whites in retreat and begging for mercy.

You could imagine a Jew being in line with Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Lion, and the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz.  They seek a mind, a heart, courage, and an identity from the great Wizard.

God gives Jews the impossible, an identity.

The Jew being of no sure identity needs an identity. For him, god gives him his identity as a “chosen people.”

This is not a biological reality, but an arbitrary compensation and substitute identity. It fills in a huge blank that gnaws at the Jewish psyche. What is a Jew? Where do I come from? Who is my real father? This would explain why it is so hard to pin down the origin of the Jews in any historical way, and why “Luke, I’m your father,” brings Jews to tears.

Jews want racial purity, but they don’t have it. It’s impossible. They created a religion of racial purity to give them the impossible, but a religion of racial purity is lost on mongrels, as are beauty contests.

As children of prostitutes, Jews are a landless people, wandering everywhere, without blood and soil.

The nagging Jewish-feminist is the opposite of silent-masculine warrior cultures.

We know of Jewish envy of blood-Europeans and their hatred of racial purity. It is the one thing all their power and money can’t buy.

Jewish Guilt

You can imagine that prostitutes would be single mothers who would have difficulty disciplining children by force. So they would use guilt as a mind trick to control their children. “Look what your mother has to do in the whorehouse, just to keep you alive.” This gives us the origin of Jewish guilt imposed by Jewish mothers. Because Jews know guilt works so well on Jews; they are masters of using guilt on goy. Indeed, sin and guilt are Jewish constructs unknown in the pre-Christian world.

Jews seem to be fascinated by their parental figure, the tranny Baphomet. What is Baphomet, but a breasted figure with a goat’s head. The breast symbolizes the known mother and the goat’s head represents the unknown fathers who abandoned Jews in ancient times. Jews are the abandoned in search of a father, a messiah.  Could their origins be more clear?

Trump’s Shameless Inner Jew

Trump’s fundamental Jewish trait now makes sense. His shamelessness was his key to victory over the Republican castrati and Hillary Clinton. Isn’t Roger Stone a master of the shameless? Trump’s fans mistake his shamelessness for courage. Does it take courage to reference menstruation, grab the p, or suggest incest with one’s daughter? It’s just Jewish shamelessness, i.e., the state of being a moral imbecile, to loosen up the goy, and get them into the whorehouse or casino.

Donald Trump’s ancestor supposedly fled military service only to open up a whorehouse in the gold rush. That’s not so odd, if his ancestor was a Jew. A regular German would probably start a farm. Would he know much about whorehouses or how to run them? Would he find it appetizing to do so? Very unlikely. Trump keeps up the traditions of the underworld with masonry and casinos. He pimped out his “daughter” for a queer laugh.

Trump’s shameless inner Jew suggests a sexual relationship with his daughter. Truly odd, but it makes sense. He prostitutes her before us. He would date his own daughter. Like a Jewish pervert, he debases the culture by grabbing pussy, and gratuitously referencing menstruation (“bleeding from the eyeballs”). Like a good Jew, he degrades the discourse of our society. Jews have done that for decades. Trump has trannies in his beauty contests, and may have a family brood of them. Trump throws sexual and biological matters in our face. The Jew is very strong in Donald Trump. Is this what being in Jew circles does to you, or is Trump a biological Jew? Never forget, he is great friends with “terrific” Jeffery Epstein.

Prostitution, shamelessness (towards the goy), guilt (on behalf of their mother), celebrating tranny baphomet, it all comes together.

Jewish Oedipus Complex

Consider Jewish boys raised proximate to their mother’s prostitution. If we can read Freud’s Oedipus Complex as a confession, Jews lust to rape their own mothers. Jewish prostitution is the root of the Freud’s Oedipus Complex, which he shifted onto Gentiles to debase them. This complex interplay of sex, guilt, rape, lust for sex with mothers, and projecting it onto others, is best explained by the thesis that Jews are the mongrels of ancient temple prostitution.

The Grecian Oedipus story illustrated the tragic condition of man, where tragic means the failure of man to avert disaster, despite his best efforts, due to his lack of omniscience. Oedipus was not lusting to have sex with his mother. He did everything possible to avert it. Strategy (knowledge) is the effort to beat tragedy (ignorance). He lacked the knowledge, but not the will. He wanted to avoid sex with his mother, stabbing his eyes out at the thought. This is not so of the Jew.

The Jewish Oedipus complex reveals the Jew’s inner life, something quiet different.

Charlatan Freud shifted and projected his own perverted lusts, lusts that brothel-raised Jews would be familiar with, onto Gentiles. The Jewish lust to have sex with one’s mother is central to Jewish life because prostitution, mongrel identity, and guilt is central to Jewish life. Jewish guilt and lust revolve around the Jewish mother. This is the nexus of the hysteria and incest in Jewish communities that Henri Herve has observed. A prostitution legacy explains the Talmud’s sexual perversions, and the excuses for raping children.

The embarrassing emotional bile generated in Jews raised proximate to prostitution, perhaps watching their Jewish mothers have sex would lead Jewish boys to have twisted sexual feelings for their mothers. Freud’s Oedipus Complex is meant to corrupt the healthy Gentile’s inner life with sick subversion and half-baked accusations that are nothing more than the bile of Jews and their most reasonable origins.

Jews argue that laws against pedophilia are laws against Jews.

Doesn’t that reveal the fundamental nature of the Jew?

Do Americans have a line in the sand, or are they lower than Jews? It would take a people lower than Jews to allow this to march unchecked.

Tranny Baphomet

A Jew’s vision of his parents is revealed in the image of Baphomet, a he-goat with breasts. This reflects the inner confusions of the Jew and his origins down to his very parents. We see the odd emphasis on transvestism among Jews, from the Jew “Jazz” Jennings to “Amy” Winehouse.

Jewish modern art lacks clarity, as does, Jewish identity. Both involve the celebration of biological filth.

We can understand Hollywood in all its depravity and symbolism. Hollywood reveals the bilge and fantasies of the collective Jew.

The Jewish rabbinical cults are an instance of longing to find a father, a messiah figure, a long-awaited missing father. Jewish sociology falls right out of temple prostitution and its psycho-social effects.

Circumcision is central to Jews and “cures” the unclean male. Only Jews could invent the term “toxic masculinity.” The toxic mix of Judaism, circumcision, and incest produces incestuous homosexuality, well-known, among Jews and their rabbis. It’s reported that half of all New York Jews have been ass-raped by Jewish males.

Herve Ryssen’s video mentions that hyper-young marriages between Jews age 12 were an effort to manage the Jewish incest-instinct. Since this incest-instinct doesn’t exist in Europeans, there is no need to marry off girls before they have reached true maturity, mental and physical. What is fit for Jews is not fit for white women.

Incredibly, this video mentions that incest is treated favorably in the Bible drawing a link between ignominy, “hessed,” tender, and pious, in reference to incest. What is disgrace on the surface is piety below.

Effectively, to be hassidic is to be a child molester.

The good thing about Jews is Jewish guilt, but we can’t let them shift that guilt onto us. Ryssen’s work shows Jew mothers and fathers want sex with the sons and daughters; the siblings want sex with each other. Jews are just a pile of nasty. Their social standing in America should collapse as this becomes more widely known.

Effectively, Jews go down the mother’s line and could care less about their father, as you would expect from descendants of prostitutes. They resent masculinity, health, strength, and beauty, yet long for a racial identity.  They are the ultimate schizophrenics. You can  see why Jews would make a religion of racial purity out of their mongrelized nature. Religion answers the deepest and unattainable desires of a people.

Deep down, Jews are a people with daddy issues.

It seems clear that Jews are a people of the whorehouse. The genesis of Jews is prostitution where temple-sex and money-changing go hand in hand. It makes you wonder why anyone would want to lay claim to being the “real” Jews. You’ve got to be crazy to want all that baggage.
