‘Monsanto’s Roundup Causes Birth Defects’:Scientists

Quick — name a brand of weedkiller.

What popped into your head? Was it, by any chance, Roundup?

The most popular and most widely-used herbicide in the world?

If it was, that’s great; the ubiquitous weedkiller will be our topic for discussion today

. Why? Because a new, comprehensive review of existing data again reveals, once again,

that scientific evidence shows that it may cause birth defects.

Appeal: Direct action vs.Tar Sands pipeline.CO2-FREE fuel already exists!

Dear Friends,

This will be a slightly longer letter than common for the internet age–it’s serious stuff.

The short version is we want you to consider doing something hard: coming to Washington in the hottest and stickiest weeks of the summer and engaging in civil disobedience that will likely get you arrested.

The full version goes like this:

As you know, the planet is steadily warming: 2010 was the warmest year on record, and we’ve seen the resulting chaos in almost every corner of the earth.

And as you also know, our democracy is increasingly controlled by special interests interested only in their short-term profit.

These two trends collide this summer in Washington, where the State Department and the White House have to decide whether to grant a  certificate of ‘national interest’ to some of the biggest fossil fuel players on earth. These corporations want to build the so-called ‘Keystone XL Pipeline‘ from Canada’s tar sands to Texas refineries.

To call this project a horror is serious understatement. The tar sands have wrecked huge parts of Alberta, disrupting ways of life in indigenous communities–First Nations communities in Canada, and tribes along the pipeline route in the U.S. have

Peru victory:Bear Creek silver mine stopped. Aymaras occupy airport.

Thousands of protesters opposed to mining and energy projects in southern Peru have taken over a commercial airport as the government struggled to restore calm a day after five died in a clash with police.

Officials said that approximately 3,000 protesters had occupied the runway at the Juliaca airport in the region of Puno on Saturday. Several hundred police officers retreated to avoid another clash after weeks of protests over a controversial Canadian mining project.

Protesters often mobilize to protect scarce water supplies, what they see as ancestral lands, or complain about potential pollution from new mines.

Often times they also demand direct economic benefits from mining and oil projects, which have helped turn the Andean nation’s economy into one of the world’s fastest-growing but left behind a third of its people in poverty.

Halted project

After earlier clashes on Friday, Fernando Gala, the deputy mining minister, announced that the government had revoked a 2007 decree granting approval to the British Columbia-based Bear Creek Mining Corp to mine silver at Santa Ana.

The decree was required because the mine site is within 80km of the international border with Bolivia.

“It has been agreed to repeal the authorisation,” said Yohny Lescano, a politician who participated in a government dialogue on Thursday with protesters over the Santa Ana project.

Bear Creek Chief Executive Andrew Swarthout told Reuters news agency that the company would sue the government to get its concession back and mining analysts have said the government’s move could lead foreign companies to think contracts aren’t respected in Peru.

But Garcia said stability and social peace was more important. In the days before the clash at the airport, the first time the protests turned deadly, protesters had set fire to government buildings in the area.

“I think there are more important objectives and the first one is to guarantee a peaceful transition and a trouble-free start to the government of Ollanta Humala,” Garcia told reporters.

Some 5,000 protesters, mostly Aymara Indians, have descended on Puno over the past few weeks to demand concessions be revoked for all mining companies, not just Bear Creek’s Santa Ana project, ostensibly over concerns about potential pollution.

Protesters have paralysed the area with road blockades since May 9 in an attempt to cancel the Santa Ana mine, as well as a proposed hydroelectric project on the Inambari river.

Gay marriage wins in NY!

ew York has become the sixth and most populous US state to allow same-sex marriage.

The Republican-controlled state senate voted 33-29 for a bill that had earlier been approved by the lower house, which has a Democratic majority.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo quickly signed the bill into law. Gay weddings are expected to start within 30 days.

It has become a contentious social issue ahead of next year’s presidential and congressional elections.

“New York has finally torn down the barrier that prevented same-sex couples from exercising the freedom to marry and from receiving the fundamental protections that so many couples and families take for granted,” Mr Cuomo said in a statement.

He kept his promise to sign the bill as soon as he received it after the Senate vote – rather than wait the usual 10 days.

Gay rights activists said the approval of the bill was a key victory for them, in what is seen as the birthplace of the US gay rights movement.

Ammonia NH3 scandal.CO2-free fuel suppressed by Big Oil.

80 years ago I could have taken a bus in Belgium that use CO2-free fuel, made from Green Gas Ammonia, and cheaper at present prices than gasoline. A car has been driven across America  on NH3 with its motor slightly adapted, the safe clean fuel has been used for tractors, locomotives and even NASA JETS.

GREEN GAS  NH3, is made by the same century old process used to make fertilizer..Just AIR plus WATER plus electricity. Now finally a new way to make Green Gas called SSAS has been found, which costs even less and is suited to wind turbine and off peak solar energy.

The oil and gas companies get billions every year in direct tax gifts from government, on top of their immense profits, and pay nothing to offset severe worldwide contamination and runaway climate change.

I`m not a moralistic person but last month I scrapped my old car.. Now I`m walking a lot and I live on a mountain. I really need transport, but how can I justify to my children if we take part in pushing the fragile world climate over the edge?

But WHY do we have  to use planet destroying technology when a C02 free alternative has existed all along.? Why can no venture company get backing to produce the fuel, when the technology is simple and proven and even the distribution system already exists (for the fertilizer Ammonia)?

Because these corporate climate mega criminals have set it up that way. Of course. For nearly a century they have suppressed Green Gas NH3. When will they be prosecuted, pilloried , ostracised  and brought to justice?..Okay I haven`t got much proof…

For example.. The company GreenNH3 (which sells green gas at 50c a liter) reports on its efforts to publicise the product on a CBC show…   After going through the interview process the man and woman said, they wanted us on the show, but could not, since our product (technology) had been vetoed by one of the Dragons who (he) was heavy invested in oil.  check it out  here

How come the oil industry in Nth America gets a 2.5 billion yearly tax gift while Green Gas supporters don`t even get their petitions answered?  Another wonder of  predator Capitalism!

CO2-free Car and Jet Fuel ALREADY EXISTS!

I’ve checked it out.. of course, it was Richard Branson of Virgin Airlines who promised to spend billions on a new GREEN air fuel,

After years of greenwash posing and ballyhoo he plans to use some  ethanol, which hardly reduces emissions and removes plants which could be used for food.

But wait a minute.. CO2  free fuel has always existed!! (see previous post)  here

Are all these people totally sold out  or totally STUPID?

Anhydrous Ammonia is cheaper to produce than jet fuel, easy to make from solar powered systems, produces ZERO ZERO ZERO CO2, and has been extensively tested back in the 60s by NASA, with the X15 plane that reached a record 4520 mph!.( okay they mixed some oxygen fuel)   http://www.nasa.gov/centers/dryden/news/FactSheets/FS-052-DFRC.html

ZERO EMISSIONS  GREEN JET FUEL ALREADY EXISTS. only that converting the planes might cut into gluttonous profits.

Running your car on Green Gas (nh3) may be a little slower… running it on petroleum will ultimately destroy life conditions on the planet!

Heres the plane..

why not use Green Gas, nh3?: no emissions. From air and water!

   To go on from yesterday’s post we include material below from the Greennh3 company which is trying to market Green Gas.  The 1st photo is from 1933, the train and tractor are running now.

What a crime we have to use petroleum and destroy the planet just to enrich a cartel of powerful corporations…when cheap emissions free energy has been available all along!

GreenGas machines make Green sustainable fuel from air and water at any location where fuel is needed in any quantity.

HOW

  • We have two proven green ways to make the fuel and three green ways to use it.
  • Green NH3 is manufactured from simply air and water using clean renewable energy.
  • Not to be confused with brown ammonia which can come from coal or other fossil sources.

Power*  +  Green NH3 Synthesizer  = Zero Emission Fuel for less cost than gas and diesel

Producing NH3 as a green fuel

  • Only fuel except hydrogen that produces no greenhouse gases.
  • Anhydrous ammonia is an ultra-clean, energy-dense alternative liquid fuel.
  • Ammonia will power diesel and spark-ignited internal combustion engines, direct ammonia fuel cells, and even combustion turbines.

*Some possible Power sources that can be used:

  • windsolar (p.v.),daylight (not p.v.), low cost off-peak, shore tidal, hydro, ocean wave, ocean temp diff., ocean current

Letter to PM and Mr McGinty   (Canada)

March 20, 2011 | Author Green Gas

GreenGas again sent registered mail to PM Harper and Mr McGinty reminding them ( as they have every six months for the last 2 yrs ) that there is a lower cost, clean, safe alternative to tar sands oil or drilling which could save Canadians money and help clean up their environment. No reply at present.

GreenGas has been used safely on farms here for over 50 years.
