The discussion about the cause of the Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda that hit the Philippines has escalated – continued

Thank you, Molly.

 

Well, I was right. We have not seen the end of this discussion. Indeed there are claims arising from a completely separate source that Typhoon Haiyan was generated by US military action. See this video and this website to which it refers.

Subject: The discussion about the cause of the Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda that hit the Philippines has escalated

 

I recently shared a video with you which claimed that Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda was triggered by a microwave pulse.

You may have seen some of the claims that it was caused by global warming – entirely to be expected.

It turns out I was not the only one who spotted the Dutchsinse video, sufficient to trigger a public response in which it was bagged by so-called “experts”. What they didn’t realise was that this was like taking a stick and stirring a hornet’s nest, triggering a comprehensive response from Dutchsinse to their claims and criticisms. For me, this was an excellent outcome, since it prompted Dutchsinse to put together a comprehensive picture of all of the well-documented evidence behind his claims.

I think we have not seen the end of this.

GMOs are NOT Safe: Scientists Signing on to GMO Dangers by the Hundreds

This article discusses the growing number of scientists signing up to express concern about GMO foods. I quote:

On October 21, 2013, the European Network of Scientists for Social and Environmental Responsibility (ENSSER) posted a statement, “No scientific consensus on GMO safety”, to let the world know there are some very bright minds with very real oppositions to genetically modified organisms. In the short time that it’s been live, the number of signatures on the statement has grown considerably to 231, including one scientist who helped to commercialize the first GM food, the Flavr Savr tomato.

End of quote.

The proponents for GMO tend to say that there is no evidence against them. Even if this is true, it is looking at the game backwards. The impact of genetically modifying natural organisms is unknown when it comes to their impact on other life forms such as us. So, it is a case where guilty until proven innocent should be the measure, not innocent until proven guilty.

In other words, until there are independent (i.e.  not funded or controlled by Monsanto and its cohorts), peer-reviewed studies showing they have no negative effects upon human and other life forms, then they should NOT be in the food chain. Einstein said, “God does not play dice with the world”. What makes us think we have that right?

Twitter bites JPMorgan

I love this. Thank you, Hedy.

 

And for real entertainment, check out all the Twitter comments sent to JPMorgan here.

Certainly made my morning…

This is too funny.  Ha!

I’m sure this is not what JPMorgan’s social media staff expected…

Fresh from helping Twitter launch its IPO, the company announced that Vice Chairman Jimmy Lee would be holding a Twitter Q&A today, urging people to tweet questions with the #AskJPM hashtag. Questions started pouring in yesterday—but they probably weren’t the kind JPMorgan was hoping for. Examples include:

  • “At what number of Billions of Dollars in fines will it no longer be profitable to run your criminal enterprise? #askjpm” (link)
  • “Do you have a secret jail in your offices so your executives get at least one chance to see the inside of one? #AskJPM” (link)
  • “I have Mortgage Fraud, Market Manipulation, Credit Card Abuse, Libor Rigging and Predatory Lending AM I DIVERSIFIED? #AskJPM”  (link)
  • “Would you rather negotiate with 1 horse-sized Eric Holder, or 100 duck-sized Eric Holders? #AskJPM” (link)
  • “As a young sociopath, how can I succeed in finance?  #AskJPM” (link)
  • “Are you involved in a massive corruption scandal in China?  #AskJPM” (link)
  • “#askJPM Does getting roasted on social media feel too harsh a penalty for rigging #LIBOR? Will you lobby Congress to regulate Twitter?” (link)
  • “What’s your favorite type of whale? #AskJPM”  (link)

The company beat its retreat and cancelled the Q&A before Lee had answered a single question. “#Badidea! Back to the drawing board!” a spokesman said in an email to the New York Times. At least 8,000 tweets were sent using the hashtag, and at least two-thirds of them were negative, the Twitter analysis firm Topsy tells the Financial Times. “I think companies sometimes forget that social media belongs to the people,” one e-marketing analyst said. “Consumers have control beyond their wildest expectations.”

The Link Between Sunspots, Global Cooling And Agenda 21

It is no surprise to me that the IPCC is running hard to get its global warming agenda fully endorsed and rolled out, because time is running out for them and the drivers for Agenda 21. This article lays out the issues very well, in my view. In simple terms, the evidence is that we are more than likely entering a period of cooling, not warming…
