DESPERATE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY

Image
. . . .Mar. 30, 2010



“What we’re seeing is a well-orchestrated international public relations campaign by a very desperate nuclear industry… I think it is really important to realize that there is an element of stampeding the herd in the direction of nuclear power, when in fact it may be a cliff we are heading to, not a bridge to the future.”

~ Dr. Gordon Edwards, CCNR

TRASH TALK

. . .EARTH HOUR 2010 IS NOW HISTORY WE'LL READ ALL ABOUT IT IN THE DAYS TO COME ON LINE AND IN MEDIA . . .BUT MANY OF PLANET EARTHS PROBLEMS REMAIN. . . .FOR INSTANCE TRASH IS STILL ACCUMULATING AT A TERRIFIC PACE . .THIS PHOTO ABOVE IS FROM A DUMPSITE IN BEIJING CHINA . . .APPARENTLY ONLY A SMALL 4 PERCENT OF GARBAGE IS RECYCLED THERE COMPARED TO ABOUT 50 PERCENT IN CANADA,BUT WE CAN'T BE TOO SMUG SINCE OVER CONSUMERISM WHICH IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MOST OF TRASH IS STILL PROMOTED AS A LIFESTYLE ENTITLEMENT IN OUR SOCIETY..IF WE WANT TO MAKE ANY HEADWAY TO REDUCE TRASH WE HAVE TO REDUCE CONSUMER DEMAND AS A WAY OF LIFE.

TIPPING POINT YET ?

KICK THE OIL HABIT

. . .WHILE I AM NOT ENDORSING ALL THE SOLUTIONS TO CLIMATE CHANGE IN THIS UTUBE VIDEO,MY FIRST IMPRESSION IS THAT IT IS WORTH A SECOND LOOK.

EARTH HOUR 27-3-10

Image
So what exactly do we do when its the “earth hour”.

SIMPLE….

Just turn off your lightbulbs, laptops, computers, music systems, air-conditioners, fans, TVs, radios and just about anything that drinks electricity like a marathoner drinking water (what? Ever noticed a marathoner drinking water? half goes in his mouth and half is wasted.. same goes with any electrical device .. ).

This is a spectacular event when viewed from space and it would be great to get images from the International Space Station as and when countries in different time zones begin turning off their lights …. starting from Japan and ending with the USA.
. . .PHOTO OF PLANET EARTH AT NIGHT WITH ALL THE LIGHTS OF THE CITIES MAY SEEM PRETTY BUT IT IS LIKE A CANCER TO THE HEALTH OF ALL LIFE. . . .ALL LIGHTS NEED POWER WHICH REQUIRES GENERATION FROM DIFFERENT SOURCES...THESE SOURCES CAUSE POLLUTION TO A DIFERENT DEGREE DEPENDING ON THE SOURCE . . .EXAMPLE EVEN NUCLEAR POWER IS A HEAVY POLLUTER DUE TO ITS LIFE CYCLE OF CO2 EM…

EARTH HOUR TIPS

. . ."EARTH HOUR" IS A NEW TRADITION THAT ORIGINATED IN SYDNEY,AUSTRALIA A FEW YEARS AGO . . .NOW AT 8:30 PM (LOCAL TIME ALL OVER THE WORLD)SATURDAY MARCH 27TH,2010 MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ON PLANET EARTH WILL CELEBRATE THE OCCASION IN THEIR OWN WAY BUT WITH THE DETERMINATION THAT THE REDUCTION OF ELECTRICITY USE WILL PROMOTE AN AWARENESS OF HOW INTERCONNECTED THE HUMAN FOOTPRINT HAS ON THE WELL BEING OF THIS PLANETS ECO SYSTEM AND WHAT WE MUST DO IN ORDER TO PRESERVE ALL LIFE. . . . . . . . . .Energy use in the home

Turning off your lights is an effective and very visual way to immediately “reduce the juice” in your home, but lighting only accounts for an estimated 11% of household energy consumption. A far more effective way to reduce your home’s energy footprint is to turn down the heat, invest in power bars to eliminate “phantom load” from major electronic equipment, or wash clothes in cold water.

Energy consumption in the average Canadian home:

Heating and Cooling 45+%

Applianc…

economy or environment ?

. . ..THAT IS THE QUESTION . . . ITS UNFORTUNATE THAT MOST OF THE SO CALLED LEADERS OF THE WORLD CHOOSE ECONOMY TO PROTECT AND PRESERVE AT THE EXPENSE OF THE ENVIRONMENT AND EVERY LIVING THING ON THIS PLANET . . .CLIMATE EMERGENCY ? NO SUCH THING ACCORDING TO SOME OF THESE LEADERS WHO SEEM TO HAVE ONLY A SUPERFICIAL KNOWLEDGE OF THE PROBLEMS PLAGUING THIS PLANET...RECENT DECISIONS BY SOME LEADERS CONFIRM THIS LACK OF JUDGEMENT...OBAMA APPROVING BILLION DOLLAR BAILOUTS FOR BANKS,AUTO FIRMS AND NUCLEAR.AND JUST LIKE SHEEP LEADERS FROM CANADA,CHINA,INDIA AND OTHER COUNTRIES ALSO SUPPORTING STIMULUS BAILOUTS FOR THESE DYING INDUSTRIES . . . .THESE SAME INDUSTIES WHICH ARE MAINLY RESPONSIBLE FOR ENVIRONMENTAL DEGRADATION. . .MEANWHILE CLIMATE CHANGE CONTINUES UNABATED AND IGNORED.

EARTH CANCER

Image
. . . . photo of planet earth at night is analagist to a cancer spreading around the world . . .in reality . . .the more lights u see in certain locations on this planet the more serious is the sickness of the patient . . .in this case planet earth. . . . . .please keep this in mind on saturday march 27th . . . "earth hour" . . .when like minded peoples all over the world make a gigantic effort to reduce or maybe someday eliminate this disease of over consumption of electricity.

KINGDOM OF BICYCLES

Image
China used to be known as the "kingdom of bicycles". In the 1980s, four out of five commuters pedalled to work on them in Beijing.

But as the capital's residents became richer following economic development, they ditched their bikes for four-wheeled transport. . . . . .THIS IS A GOOD EXAMPLE HOW CAR MAKERS WITH THE FININCIAL BAILOUTS FROM CORRUPT GOVERNMENTS CAN BAMBOZZLE AND BRAINWASH THE GENERAL POPULATION TO BUY THE COMPLETELY DYSFUNCTIONAL GAS GUZZLING,EARTH DESTROYING MOTOR VEHICLES..AND ULTIMATELY REPLACE THE MOST ECO FRIENDLY AND EFFICIENT FORM OF HUMAN TRANSPORT KNOWN . . .THE BICYCLE . . .ITS VERY SAD AND ONE HOPES THAT THE PEOPLE CAN REGAIN THEIR SENSES AND
"BRING BACK THE BICYCLE" . . .AND DITCH THE CAR.

...NUCLEAR POWER IS "THE PROBLEM" NOT THE SOLUTION. . . .THE SOLUTION LIES IN STRICTER ENFORCED FRUGAL ENERGY USE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD . . .IMPOSSIBLE ? U SAY . . THE ALTERNATIVE IS CLIMATE CHAOS EVERYWHERE. . . .REMINDER . . . "EARTH HOUR" IS 2 WEEKS AWAY ON MARCH 27TH-2010 . . .ON THAT DATE PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD WILL TURN OFF ALL UNECESSARY LIGHTS AND APPLIANCES FOR AT LEAST ONE HOUR AFTER SUNSET AS A UNITED FRONT AGAINST THE OVER USE OF POLLUTION CAUSING ELECTRICITY.

WHY VEGAN ?

. . . . .HERE ARE SOME IMPORTANT REASONS WHY A VEGAN DIET IS PREFERABLE IN THESE TROUBLED TIMES . . . .LOOK AT THEM CAREFULLY . . .WE HAVE ONLY ONE PLANET . . .IN ORDER OF PRIORITY FACTORY FARMING OF BEEF CATTLE IS THE MOST ECO DESTRUCTIVE . . . .SWINE FACTORY FARMING . . .AND MANY OTHERS FOLLOW.

DON'T WORRY GRANDMA

Image
SAFETY IS JOB # 1 AT ALL CAR MAKERS ?????? BRAKES, STEERING,FUEL PROBLEMS RECALLS ALMOST ON A ROUTINE BASIS NOW...ISN'T IT TIME TO RECONSIDER PRIORITIES AND NOT BUY ANOTHER CAR AT LEAST FOR PEACE OF MIND...ALTERNATE TRANSPORTATION IS AVAILABLE ON TAXI,BUSES AND FROM NEIGHBOURS FOR A SMALL DONATION FOR GAS EXPENSES.

JOBS AT WHAT PRICE ?

ALL LIFE ON EARTH PAY A VERY HEAVY PRICE FOR THE "JOBS"CREATED BY OUR GOVERNMENTS...ONE EXAMPLE : SO CALLED INFRASTRUCTURE JOBS OF BUILDING BRIDGES AND PAVED ROADS WHICH IS A FAVOURITE TARGET OF THE FEDERAL AND PROVINCIAL BUDGETS. . .THESE TYPES OF JOBS ARE MAINLY CREATED TO CATER TO THE SPECIAL INTERESTS OF THE VERY STRONG BELLICOSE AUTO INDUSTRY LOBBY MUCH TO THE DETRIMENT OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC TO WHICH THE GOV'T SHOULD SERVE. . . JOBS THAT REQUIRE THE DESTRUCTION OF FORESTS AND FERTILE FARMLAND TO BUILD A NEW HIGHWAY IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THIS BACKWARD THINKING THAT EXISTS IN THE CORRIDORS OF POWER IN OTTAWA AND QUEENS PARK TORONTO.BUILDING ROADS ARE VERY EXPENSIVE TO THE TAX PAYERS AND CAUSE MUCH ECO DESTRUCTION AND EXCESSIVE USE OF AGREGATE AND OIL/GAS SUPPLIES FOR THE BENEFIT OF A PRIVLEGED CLASS OF MOTORISTS.
