GeoEngineering in Plain Sight

Colossal GeoEngineering in Plain Sight

NASA reported 5 years ago that the earth is now receiving at least 20% less sunlight than 10 years before.

After 16 years of denial, the White House Science Czar John P Holdren now admits that they have been “testing” the manipulation of Earth’s atmosphere with Barium salts, Aluminum Dioxide and other toxic compounds.

Bottom line: there is a world-wide secret program to manipulate the atmosphere. They admit it’s happening, but they won’t tell us why.


Are you prepared?

Survivalists: Are you part of the new subculture?

MIDWEST CITY, Okla. — According to the most recent government data, food inflation costs for the average American family are about 4.5 percent per year. That staggering figure, coupled with growing fear about the global food trade and availability of fuel, is prompting a growing number of Oklahoma families to stock up.

This notion of “surivivalism” has been circling the American psyche for a few months now.

Glenn Beck is talking about it on his show and there are others.

The official guidelines from FEMA recommend two weeks of food immediately available for a family in case of emergency.

At Red Dawn: Hunting, Survival, Recreation, they specialize in homesteading, emergency preparedness and first-aid.

Owner Gaylon Cornsilk first dreamed up this concept about a year ago.

The doors have been open just six months and business has exploded.

Cornsilk says, “This was kinda born out of a passion to see people prepared for any kind of emergency, natural or man-made. We are growing exponentially everyday. Obviously there’s an air of people starting to notice and want to prepare for what’s going on around them.”

Donna Harper manages the store’s long-term storage food section.

Some of the pre-packaged emergency food rations last five to 25 years; the rations sell out so quickly they cannot keep enough on premises.

The average customer spends hundreds of dollars.

Harper says, “They’re buying a variety of this stuff. They don’t just want the survival tabs. They don’t just want the emergency rations. They want the dried fruit and soups and milk and eggs. We’re amazed. For the longest time we thought, ‘Oh it’s just us. There aren’t that many of us.’ But we’re finding out there are a lot of us. I don’t ever want to be sitting across the table from someone I love and thinking, ‘Why didn’t I prepare? I wish I had done more.’ I don’t ever want to do that.”

The Behringer family from Yukon is part of a new breed of survivalists.

Their garden supplies most of the family’s veggies in the summer; they freeze the rest.

They equipped their house with a built-in generator hook-up so they can keep the lights on when power fails.

Fred Behringer says, “I keep the generator full of gas and two gas cans right there with it because it’s no fun to get up at 2 a.m. because your generator went off and you need to go find some more gas.”

The Behringers’ secret is buying staples and buying bulk.

Andrea Behringer says, “I never thought of us as survivalists. It never even crossed my mind because it just seemed practical. We don’t have a lot of pre-made foods. It’s mostly staples. It’s your basics; beans, rice, pasta, potatoes, cans of vegetables. So if I can get a good deal on it, I will buy a whole bunch.

The Behringers say they could live comfortably for two weeks off what’s in the pantry. (Note: Two weeks of supplies can hardly be called preparation. 3 months is imperative along with a 1-3 day grab bag in case you need to leave in a hurry. To pick one up check awesome grab ‘n go’s here.

Whether you are stockpiling because you believe global economic meltdown is imminent or just because it is wise to buy a few extra when things are on sale, there are more and more Oklahomans choosing to load up on necessities, just in case.

Ecologicaly Sound Fuel: The future is now!

Spanish scientists search for fuel of the future

ALICANTE, Spain (AFP) – In a forest of tubes eight metres high in eastern Spain scientists hope they have found the fuel of tomorrow: bio-oil produced with algae mixed with carbon dioxide from a factory.

Almost 400 of the green tubes, filled with millions of microscopic algae, cover a plain near the city of Alicante, next to a cement works from which the C02 is captured and transported via a pipeline to the “blue petroleum” factory.

The project, which is still experimental, has been developed over the past five years by Spanish and French researchers at the small Bio Fuel Systems (BFS) company.

At a time when companies are redoubling their efforts to find alternative energy sources, the idea is to reproduce and speed up a process which has taken millions of years and which has led to the production of fossil fuels.

“We are trying to simulate the conditions which existed millions of years ago, when the phytoplankton was transformed into oil,” said engineer Eloy Chapuli. “In this way, we obtain oil that is the same as oil today.”

The microalgae reproduces at high speed in the tubes by photosynthesis and from the CO2 released from the cement factory.

Every day some of this highly concentrated liquid is extracted and filtered to produce a biomass that is turned into bio-oil.

The other great advantage of the system is that it is a depollutant — it absorbs the C02 which would otherwise be released into the atmosphere.

“It’s ecological oil,” said the founder and chairman of BFS, French engineer Bernard Stroiazzo-Mougin, who worked in oil fields in the Middle East before coming to Spain.

“We need another five to 10 years before industrial production can start,” said Stroiazzo-Mougin, who hopes to be able to develop another such project on the Portuguese island of Madeira.

“In a unit that covers 50 square kilometres, which is not something enormous, in barren regions of southern Spain, we could produce about 1.25 million barrels per day,” or almost as much as the daily export of oil from Iraq, he said.

BFS, a private company, hopes to negotiate “with several countries to obtain subsidies for the installation of artificial oil fields,” he said.

Other similar projects being studied in other parts of the world.

In Germany, the Swedish energy group Vattenfall last year launched a pilot project in which algae is used to absorb carbon dioxide from a coal-fired power plant.

US oil giant ExxonMobil plans to invest up to $600 million in research on oil produced from algae.

Companies, in particular those in the aeronautic sector, have shown keen interest in this research, hoping to find a replacement for classic oil.
