El 22 de Julio llegó al puerto de Ferrol el primer cargamento de gas de fracking procedente de EEUU.  Según denuncian Ecologistas en Acción, Amigos de la Tierra y otras organizaciones, la llegada del metanero Sestao Knutsen, impedirá a buen seguro el cumplimiento de los ya exiguos e insuficientes objetivos climáticos europeos. Las próximas entregas serán a Barcelona y Sagunto (Valencia).

‘Ni aquí Ni en ninguna parte’ es el lema del movimiento anti-fracking, y genera rechazo el engaño de la importación de gas del fracking de EEUU, especialmente ante las noticias que resulta mucho más dañino que el carbón.

Los últimos estudios de Harvard  dan pruebas que ‘La Revolución del Fracking  es letal para el clima debido a las fugas incontrolables de metano y que ha hecho a perder todas las supuestas reducciones de emisiones en EEUU desde 2009.frackin_7138_11

Probado que el Gas de Fracking es ‘Mucho peor que el Carbón’.

El gas de fracking no es un sustituto menos dañino para el clima. Estudios autoritativos de Harvard y Cornell han revelado que es mucho peor que el carbón  debido a las fugas incontrolables de metano.

The Andalusian Workers Union /SAT) has occupied the  huge Somonte Estate for the third time dsc_0579
Somonte is a farm of 400 hectares located south of Córdoba in where summer temperatures reach 50C. It houses a handful of labourers, a pen of chickens and several million “wingback” mosquitoes  infesting the few areas of shade.

Among the dry fields that extend beyond the horizon, the only landmark is the tower of the ultraq modern Abengoa photovoltaic plant  projecting in all directions the sunlight of hundreds of reflective  panels concentrated on its tip.

Mega-Corpse Of Loch Ness Monster ‘Found’ In Scotland

— Photos, Facts, & Thoughts On The Approaching Extinction Of Many Marine Species

by loch ness corpse

The supposed carcass of the Loch Ness Monster has been found on the shores of the infamous Scottish loch, according to some recent reports. Found in this case refers of course to the recent appearance of a rather interesting new hoax — the photos are quite fetching aren’t they?

While animals that fit the description of the famous Loch Ness Monster most certainly have existed at various points in time, in various parts of the world — and while I’m not of the mind that all “sightings” are hoaxes per se — the chances of finding a physical animal living in Loch Ness that fits the description are pretty much nil.

There are plenty of real life 'monsters', many of them being driven to extinction by human predation
There are plenty of real life ‘monsters’, many of them being driven to extinction by human predation

So, what are we left with? A hoax of some sort — though the motives behind hoaxes often vary quite a bit. In this case, I’d say that those behind it have had quite a bit of fun. I wonder what the exact motive was? Continue reading Mega-Corpse Of Loch Ness Monster ‘Found’ In Scotland

EU dictators Give Green Light to Monsanto: maiming and torturing millions of us to death.

Just days after EU States voted 3 times not to extend Monsanto’s ‘Cancer Herbicide’ license the European Commission went ahead anyway and gave them 18 months more (and that’s for starters). And that despite an unprecedented and  gigantic citizens mobilization.glyphosate-poison-so-why-in-food

Glyphosate poisoning from crop spraying has led to an epidemic of toxicity diseases, cancers and deformities in Argentina


And this was the 1st big EU decision since Brexit, which was itself partly a protest against the undemocratic EU commission. 

So why the hell did they do this?   Because they have suffered a takeover by corporate capitalism, lots of lobbies and big money sloshing around and entering their untraceable offshore accounts?.. Perhaps also by authorizing continued mass poisoning the EU Bureaucrats assert their power, even over the heads of the member states who voted 3 times against it?..

But there must be another reason, behind this decision overruling national governments.. there must be a more powerful bully…

… of course, because  Monsanto is a top US moneyspinner, because the EU is under direct economic and political threats from their US masters who have ruled Europe by these methods since the 2nd World War. (Another current example could be the crippling trade war with Russia which the EU implements although hardly anyone in Europe believes in it, forced by the US to do this because it supports their military expansionism).

The Companies would have had 6 months to withdraw sales of Roundup, now they have 18 months.. and with no detail of a plan to wind down…no withdrawal timetables, no push to seek alternatives or reorganise.. no no.. THIS IS A STRAIGHT DECISION TO LET MONSANTO CONTINUE.. after the 18 months suitable excuses will be found to continue indefinitely, with some more falsified reports and studies,  if the public haven’t already shut up by then and realised ( as in Greece and Spain) that mass democratic protest is now useless.  I mean, what’s the point? if even 3 votes against by the Heads of States are ignored!!

The above arguments can equally be applied to the ongoing US touted TTIP ‘free trade’ corporate takeover of Europe.

The way to stop Roundup, and to stop TTIP may be by boycotts and ‘Direct Action’, when all else fails, with the current French popular uprising well capable of leading the way. see here

Lady Beetles make ‘Anti-Aphrodisiac’ to Keep Dude Beetles Focused on Raising the Kids

by Aimée Lutkin  from Jezebel  with thanks

Burying beetles mate by choosing a decaying animal carcass to fornicate next to, then laying their larvae in its rotting flesh. Hot!

After the passion dies away, beetles are much like humans: it’s time to take care of the kids, and inevitably, the sex life tapers off. Scientists at the University of Ulm in Germany have been studying how these co-parents make it work., and behavioral ecologist Sandra Steige says, “It is quite surprising… and somehow intriguing.” Continue reading Lady Beetles make ‘Anti-Aphrodisiac’ to Keep Dude Beetles Focused on Raising the Kids

Biggest ever Climate Demos as Deadly Feedback Loops may be Triggered

Global warming has skyrocketed with every month breaking the record for the hottest ever in history. Evidence grows that one of the 10 deadly tipping points has been reached, which could detonate all of the rest. help save climate HEREextinxtion is forever
This is what the largest civil disobedience in the history of the environmental movement looks like in Europe

These days, we’re witnessing the largest civil disobedience in the history of the environmental movement. People around the world are joining together in an unprecedented wave of escalated mass actions targeting the world’s most dangerous coal, oil and gas projects, under the banner of Break Free from fossil fuels.

The UK kicked off Break Free last week with three hundred people halting operations at the country’s largest opencast coal mine at Ffos-y-fran in South Wales for a day. The peaceful occupation and blockade ended with no arrests.

The following day, 10,000 marched in the Philippines calling for an end to coal — in a country where a month ago, police opened fire on farmers demanding relief for farm communities who have been hit heavily by a climate-change-exacerbated drought. Over the weekend, 2,000 Australians gathered in Newcastle to block the world’s largest coal port for a day.


Tipping Points – the Facts….- an irreversible moment when the dreaded feedback loop begins.  This is now the central issue for the scientific community: we may now be helpless to stop abrupt and runaway global warming.   These ten major tipping points may right at this moment be being triggered.
