B.P. are claiming that all the oil that spilled into the Gulf of Mexico has either been eaten by bacteria,evaporated or cleared up with the Corexit.

The above statement came from B.P's communications executive. Some are not so sure,they decided to hire a submersible and check things out for themselves.

New York state has banned fracking, another arm of the government wants to store fracked gas,in an abandoned salt cavern,under a lake that supplies 100,000 people with drinking water and all the surrounding farms and vine yards.

http://www.democracynow.org/2015/5/15/we_are_seneca_lake_josh_fox

About eight minutes in there is video of what happens when gas stored in a salt cavern explodes. The authorities do anything and everything to stop people getting to see it.


Richard is worried about what David Cameron means by non violent extremists and what measures he will take to curb them. He will more than likely follow the American model.

The "experts" have claimed that the first four months of this year have been the warmest on record. Guess they just ignored the polar vortex thing that hit America, causing record breaking low temperatures across the whole of the U.S. Then there is the pesky snow that is still falling,in May.

This is an interview with a NASA (don't hold that against him)scientist who used to be a white house adviser until his findings conflicted with their own beliefs.

That being, he believes the world is cooling, due to the solar minimum, which is the cause for the increase in earth quakes,volcanic eruptions and their severity.

He has also published a press release on the effects of the cold weather on agriculture.

When it comes to the sustainability of the environment and the fauna that it supports,common sense would dictate that it is to the benefit of all to protect it for the good of all.
The E.U. have some of the strictest rules when it comes to agricultural chemicals. Yet when American lobbyists turn up at the E.U. door,those rules evaporate as though they were never drawn up in the first place.

I wonder if Cameron will use the above to rescind the E.U.'s freedom of movement laws?

The point is, which side has the greater clout, can/will the E.U. allow themselves to be influenced by these American lobbyist, or will the E.U. stand their ground and overrule any decision made by them?

As for CaMORON, he might as well jump out of a plane from 2000 feet with no parachute for all the good he is.

America has been throwing its weight about and the E.U. has been folding.
They have damaged their own exports and workers futures by agreeing to sanctions against Russia.

They appear to be going down the TTIP path by not allowing any of their M.P.'s, let alone citizens know what the TTIP contains. It is only through whistle blowers that we are aware of its ramifications.

One of the demands of America, that Britain and the majority of Europe did not heed, was not joining China's infrastructure investment bank. Even Israel wants in on that deal.

In a normal world the politicians would have listened to what the American pesticide and herbicide lobbyists had to say. Then they should have asked these questions.

How many of your products have been "independently" tested? I.E. not done in house.

The answer is none. the FDA rely totally on the manufactures own data.

How many of your GMO's have been independently tested?

The ones that have,by other countries, have all found severe problems with the animals that were fed the GMO's. All,have been vilified or the authors of said tests have been fired. Their papers removed from the publications that printed them,even though their science and findings could not be discredited.

America has the largest portion of bee deaths though out the world, is this linked to said chemicals and GMO's and can you give independent proof of your answer?

After many years they are still not sure what is causing the deaths. Countries that do not use these chemicals do not have the same problem. QED

I don't know, maybe the E.U. are not as independent as they would have us believe - there maybe too many collaborators on the inside that are really working for America's interest.

You only have to look at the stunt America pulled when it thought Edward Snowden was on a South American's president's plane. The planes are classed as flying embassies,so no one is allowed to interfere or board them without permission.

America somehow got Spain,Portugal and France to deny the plane access through their airspace on its way to the Canary Islands to refuel. It was forced to land in Vienna where officials searched the plane. The Americans thought Snowden was on board and broke every law and rule on international diplomacy to get him and the Europeans assisted.

One could ask what is stopping Britain from storming the Ecuadorian embassy to get Assange for the Swedes? Because the Swedes are not American

Panorama is at it again. I wish there was a way to use this apology of a "factual" program as an excuse not to pay the T.V. license.

There is also this critique of the program.

We are continually told we need to produce more energy via renewable self sustaining means.

If people can produce their own clean electricity and store it until it is needed that would be a big benefit to the planet and their wallets.

Do you think the energy companies would like that?

In America they are making it illegal to go off grid. In Spain they are going to tax you for storing electricity.

Lancashire council has given permission for quadrilla to frack.

I hope this does not happen.

Volcanoes are going off all over the place and not getting much mention in the MSN.

This one has been going a while and could get worse.

My money is on Cameron completely ignoring this recommendation.

Of course. For one thing, his collegue Rupert Murdoch is heavily into fracking, so that's that then. It'll create loads of jobs! Fuel will be cheaper! Best thing since sliced bread! What's wrong with all you Eco-nuts? Can't you see?

The news has been full of Greek and Iranian events. No mention of the recent upsurge in volcanic activity.

We may be considering adding new members on a "block basis". We will collect new member requests and then introduce a new batch. The new memebrs will be identifiable by a prefix in their username as a "new member". Anyone considered to be trolling or causing trouble will be immedialtey removed. To be put on the list please email richard@richplanet.net AND GIVE YOUR US NAME, A USERNAME, PASSWORD. I would imagine a new batch of new members will be added in January 2012.
