Human race being terminated by \’scientific suicide\’

via Human race being terminated by \’scientific suicide\’.

(NaturalNews) This is, without question, the most important article I’ve ever penned, because it discusses the idea that the human race is being destroyed in the name of science.

Stopping these “scientists” from destroying our world and our civilization must become our top priority if we hope to survive.

The entire Northern hemisphere is now imminently threatened by a massive, “global killer” radiation release from failing Fukushima reactor No. 4. (http://www.naturalnews.com/035789_Fukushima_Cesium-137_Plume-Gate.htm…). Our world is right now just one earthquake away from a radiological apocalypse, and we were put into this position by scientists who promised us that nuclear power would be safe and inexpensive.

Even as we live under the immediate threat of Cesium-137-induced radiological extinction, another group of genetic scientists threatens the future of our world with self-replicating genetic pollution. These scientists work for Monsanto, Dupont and other biotech firms that have compromised the future of life on Earth in order to seek their own selfish profits. Bill Gates and all the others who have promoted GMOs and allowed them to be unleashed into our world are guilty of nothing less than crimes against both the human race and nature itself. They are a threat to the continuation of life on Earth and must be stopped.

In the realm of human biology, our very existence is now being widely threatened by toxic vaccines. Always promoted in the name of “science,” these vaccines actually cause severe neurological damage and widespread infertility, compromising the ability of members of the human race to reproduce.

And in terms of our global food supply, the accelerating collapse of the honey bees is now solidly linked to the widespread use of chemical pesticides manufactured by pharmaceutical companies (http://www.naturalnews.com/034678_honey_bees_colony_collapse_pesticid…). These pesticides, of course, are always promoted in the name of “science!” It’s better living through chemistry, remember?

In fact, if you take an honest look at what threatens our civilization and our planet today, it’s always something done in the name of science!

Death by science

• Toxic pesticides that kill the soils and rivers? “Science!”

• Toxic chemical medications that kill humans and pollute downstream waters? “Scientific!”

• The mass poisoning of the population with a toxic combination of industrial waste products called “fluoride?” It’s all done for “science!”

• Nuclear bombs that have already decimated civilian populations? “Science!”

• Mammograms and other medical imaging devices that actually cause cancer? “Scientific!”

• Chemotherapy poisons, “preventive” mastectomies, cancer radiation treatments? It’s all “scientific” of course.

• The mass mercury poisoning of children through dental amalgams? They call it “science-based dentistry!”

What’s clear from all this is that the human race is being murdered in the name of science.

But underneath that realization is an even more profound one: Much of the so-called “science” is really just fraudulent science that’s twisted, distorted and quacked up by greed-driven corporations.

Real science is the quest for understanding, not the quest for profit

Real science is a good thing, as it is based on the quest for knowledge. But today, there’s not much real science being conducted anymore. Most of what takes place is corporate-driven science for the purpose of gaining power and profits.

In medicine, for example, the search for new drugs is not about helping humanity; it’s about helping quarterly profits. But you already knew that. Only the most naive individuals today still believe Big Pharma cares about human beings.

In the world of GMOs, it’s not about actually “feeding the world” as is ridiculously claimed by its corrupt, criminal pushers; it’s actually about “owning the world” and using food as a weapon against the People of the world. He who controls the food supply eventually controls everything. Monsanto is hell bent on world domination, not world nourishment.

Vaccines, for their part, aren’t about actually preventing disease and enhancing the health of the public. Infectious disease prevention could be easily accomplished through sanitation improvements and low-cost vitamin D supplementation. Vaccines are really about two things: 1) Population control, 2) Repeat business for the drug industry due to all the vaccine damage caused by inoculations. (Vaccines damage the liver, kidneys, brain and intestines, among other organs.)

The “science” practiced today is a science of domination and control. It is almost never carried out for humanitarian purposes to benefit humankind. Even the entire intellectual property “ownership” system of patents and trademarks is set up to grant corporate monopolies over innovation, thereby denying the People access to such innovations. Intellectual property laws have been twisted and exploited by corporate giants to hijack the innovation process and use it to crush competition. All corporations ultimately want a global monopoly over their particular industry sectors.

Universities, which once conducted research to benefit humankind, now use taxpayer money to develop patentable chemicals that are then licensed to drug companies (or pesticide companies) in exchange for royalties that enrich the university.

As a result of such trends, “science” has come to mean corruption, dishonesty, greed and death. “Scientists” — the people who practice such science — are death engineers whose innovations may deliver hyped-up short-term benefits, but they often ultimately lead to long-term death and destruction. Roundup herbicide, for example, kills crop soils and encourages the development of pesticide-resistant “superweeds.” In the terrain of human biology, much the same ramification of death and destruction is happening with the widespread abuse of antibiotics and the alarming rise of MRSA and other “superbugs.”

Such “scientific” innovations were, of course, developed by well-meaning people who didn’t mean to cause widespread crop failures and antibiotic-resistant staph infections, but in doing so they only became experts in paving the road to Hell with good intentions.

Science is killing us. As a race, we are committing suicide by allowing science to dominate our medicine, agriculture and military industries. To the degree that we allow scientists to unleash their dangerous experiments onto the world without legitimate testing — and no, flu shot vaccines are never scientifically tested for long-term safety — we only accelerate the digging of our own graves. If we don’t learn to restrain the blind ambitions of arrogant scientists who are all too easily enticed by the chance to roll the dice in their “let’s play God” games, the blind pursuit of science without wisdom will only lead to our total destruction.

Because next we can count on the rise of the robot drones in the name of science — a new race of Terminator machines (unmanned AI drones) with the capability to mindlessly unleash bombs and bullets on civilian populations. Such drones will be developed in the name of “science,” of course, with all the predictable ego-driven fantasies of their geek-headed inventors who, with all their superior intellect, have still failed to study human history.

Even if the drones don’t get us, nanotechnology may yet spell our demise. Scientists are already running dangerous experiments with nanotechnology, and if just one such experiment results in a self-replicating nanotech “grey goo,” our entire world could be inescapably devoured by self-replicating microscopic machines that make GMOs seem tame by comparison. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grey_goo)

If we are to survive, we must force science to be bound by the Precautionary Principle

If we are to survive the endless greed, arrogance and ambition of today’s scientists — whose actions more closely resemble little children with flamethrowers than mature, adult individuals — we must force science to abide by the Precautionary Principle.

The Precautionary Principle means that when we experiment with nature, we force ourselves to err on the side of caution, not profits. In practical terms, that means we should never unleash self-replicating genetic programs (GMOs) into the open world and let experimental seeds get blown across the continent by the wind.

We should never build highly radioactive nuclear power facilities that require power to run pumps in order to avoid a nuclear meltdown. Such facilities must be designed to run in a grid-down, self-shutdown format that defaults to an unmanned state of non-criticality.

We should never unleash synthetic chemicals across the world’s crops and soils to kill insects, not knowing the long-term ramifications of such neurotoxins being introduced into the ecosystem.

The Precautionary Principle recognizes that human civilization is fragile, and science-sounding experiments can run amok in ways that simply cannot be anticipated by even the most brilliant and well-intentioned human minds.

Technology without wisdom is suicide

In the name of science, humanity has developed remarkable technologies. But as a species, humankind operates as infants in terms of wisdom and maturity. We are worse than children with flamethrowers — we are children with nukes!

A typical top-level scientist working for a corporation or a government body is ethically under-developed, lacking wisdom and perspective. They may be geniuses in their absurdly narrow realms of technical expertise, but they have no understanding of the importance of restraining the application of scientific pursuits in the real world. Even now, scientists working at the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva are playing God with the universe, attempting to discover what they ridiculously call new “particles” even though such particles are not even particles in the first place. (http://www.naturalnews.com/025486_article_science_WHO.html)

In their quest for what they claim to be scientific knowledge, they are playing a dangerous game with our world, risking the very small but catastrophically fatal chance that their experiment might create a planet-consuming black hole that devours our world. Sound like science fiction? Most conventional scientists dismiss such ideas as pure nonsense. But their colleagues also told us that nuclear power was safe; that GMOs are safe; that pesticides are safe; that fluoride is safe; that vaccines are safe; and on and on. If there’s one thing we can scientifically establish as truth in our world today, it’s that scientists vastly and naively overestimate the safety of their own experiments, often in ways that cause widespread harm, death or destruction to innocent people around them.

Scientists are a danger to our world, in other words. And they need to be immediately restrained before they utterly destroy the very conditions on our planet that make human life possible.

History has taught us that scientists have very little ability to anticipate the long-term effects of their present-day actions. The nature of the universe is more complex than even the most brilliant scientist can imagine, it turns out, and when they start to play God with the natural world, unexpected things can and do occur. Murphy was an optimist, as the saying goes. Not only will things go wrong if they can go wrong; they will go wrong in catastrophic ways that simply cannot be anticipated.

The sixth mass extinction on our planet may be caused by science itself

There have been five mass extinction events on our planet, the most recent being the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cretaceous%E2%80%93Paleogene_extinction_…).

The sixth such event may be caused by science itself, either with a global radiological release, a runaway genetic pollution event, a nanotechnology disaster, an AI rise to power, or something far more sinister that we can’t even anticipate. We already stand on the verge of being inundated with radiation from Fukushima — a precarious situation upon which “the fate of the world” now rests. What other great threats to our survival have been committed in the name of science?

Until the Wild West, “anything goes” approach to science as practiced today is held in check by a sense of self preservation, the human race will remain at grave risk of becoming an inadvertent casualty of well-intentioned science gone terribly wrong.

Let us take steps now to halt the life-threatening science that has put us all at risk and pull ourselves back from the brink of scientific suicide.

The top ten “scientific” projects threatening the survival of the human race right now

#1) Nuclear power (Fukushima in particular)
#2) GMOs (self-replicating genetic pollution)
#3) Nanotechnology (self-replicating microscopic machines)
#4) Bioweapons (self-replicating microscopic weapons)
#5) Atmospheric experiments (HAARP and high-altitude spraying)
#6) Artificial Intelligence (AI, when coupled with killer drone hardware)
#7) Particle accelerator physics experiments (Large Hadron Collider)
#8) Pollinator disruption chemicals (synthetic pesticides that destroy honey bee colonies)
#9) Nuclear weapons
#10) Weaponized vaccines (live cross-species viral material being injected into human targets)

Astronomical timing is turning the moon into a ‘supermoon’


Astronomical timing is turning the moon into a ‘supermoon’.

Don’t forget that tomorrow night will be a supermoon! What this means is that the moon will be closer to Earth than any other time this year. It will be 30% brighter and 14% bigger than usual.

“On Saturday at 11:35 p.m. ET, the moon will officially turn full. And only 25 minutes later, the moon will also arrive at perigee, its closest approach to Earth — a distance of 221,802 miles (356,955 kilometers) away. ”  MSNBC

Protect the Western Arctic Reserve From Big Oil


Protect the Western Arctic Reserve From Big Oil.

 

My cousin Anita and her husband Robert started visiting Alaska and all that it has to offer several years ago. In fact, they spend most of their free time traveling there to experience its grand beauty and untouched pristine public land. However, she has informed our family members if we wish to be able to experience this natural wonder in its current state, we should plan to visit very soon because the landscape is changing at a rapid rate and not for the better. Because of the negative effects of Global Warming/Climate Change in conjunction with “Big Oil” and their plans to begin drilling for oil and natural gas, it’s only a matter of time before this will all be destroyed. As we have seen and experienced firsthand by a host of companies that now occupy several counties in Arkansas with the Fayetteville Shale Play, among others, things are never the same after they come in and begin their reckless and irresponsible process of extracting the natural resources from the land.

If we are to survive as a people, we must learn that our actions of developing and extracting fossil fuels from the land is not the way to progress in creating energy sources for the enormous demand we require. We are no longer able to extract these natural resources at a rate in order to meet the demand and this is only going to be more prevalent going forward. We must invest in clean and abundant renewal able energy sources and make this transition NOW before it is too late. It is time to wake up and accept responsibility for our actions and make this transition a global reality if we are to survive without destroying our plant and the environment of the only place we can call home, Planet Earth. It is the only planet we have and if we do not change our way of thinking and take action today, we are going to be too late. We have the science and technology available now to do this. It won’t be easy but it is absolutely possible. To continue down the path we have chosen by incorporating the use of fossil fuels into every aspect of our lives has been a terrible mistake. We must stop supporting this behavior and do everything in our power to encourage and support continued research, development and implementation of clean and free renewable energy sources. Stop making “Big Oil” companies rich today! They are making record breaking profits and we continue to give them millions in incentives of tax payers money in exchange for a nightmare of health related issues, environmental issues and the continued strangle hold they have over us including record high prices for the products they produce. If you won’t take action for yourself, do it for your children and grandchildren. Let’s all make a promise to ourselves and future generations to insure a brighter future where these problems no longer exists and become stewards of our planet as we should be. We are very much a part of nature. We cannot separate the two. We must follows natures lead and care for and defend it as if it were your very own child! Below is an article I received explaining the details of a specific story relating to my post. Please take a look at the story and fell free to us the link provided to take action and get involved today! Larry D. Paszli, 4/2012

Dear Larry,

caribouThe Western Arctic Reserve, also known as the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska, is the largest tract of unprotected, relatively pristine public land in the United States. But Big Oil has the reserve in its sights and will not hesitate to turn this vast wilderness into a sprawling industrial complex to drum up massive profits.

The 23.5 million-acre reserve is home to imperiled polar bears, seabirds and one of the densest populations of nesting raptors in the world. Its shores and lagoons harbor beluga whales, seals, walruses and other marine mammals.

In the rapidly warming Arctic, short-sighted oil and gas development will further stress the remarkable wildlife that lives and breeds there. The Bureau of Land Management is now collecting comments on a planning document that will set the stage for oil and gas leasing in the western Arctic for decades to come.

You can help save this national treasure: Take action to tell the BLM to protect the Western Arctic Reserve from dirty fossil fuel development.

Protesters successfully shut down California Monsanto office


Protesters successfully shut down California Monsanto office

via Protesters successfully shut down California Monsanto office.

(NaturalNews) A recent two-day protest in Northern California against genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) led to the complete shutdown of a Monsanto corporate office for an entire day, according to reports. On Friday, March 16, 2012, activists affiliated with the Global Days of Action to Shut Down Monsanto began rallying in front of the Davis, Calif., office of Monsanto, where they held up banners, gave speeches, and set up tents in front of the Monsanto building on Fifth Street, which caused the biotech giant to shutter its operations.

“In the course of the two-day event, activists held up signs, gave speeches to inform and inspire each other and solidify the movement, drafted a resolution about Monsanto with many proposed solutions to be presented to the California legislature, celebrated each other and went “freeway blogging” – displaying a large hand made banner that said, “Shut Down Monsanto” on the Pole Line Road overpass over I-80,” writes Mark Graham of Food Freedom. “Thousands of drivers were shown this message.”

Sponsored by The Anti-Monsanto Project, the Peace & Freedom Party, and various chapters of the Occupy movement from around Northern California, the weekend rally in Davis serves as a template for activists in other cities to follow. All it took to shut down Monsanto, after all, was a few dozen people standing in front of the building — imagine what hundreds, or even thousands, of activists could together accomplish?

Awareness about GMOs and the fact that they continue to remain unlabeled in the American food supply is becoming a forefront issue in the public spotlight. And evidence of this is being fleshed out in California, Connecticut, Washington and nearly a dozen other states where mandatory GMO labeling laws have been proposed or are currently making their way through the legislative process.

The truth about the dangers and ineffectiveness of GMOs, as well as the extreme toxicity of Roundup (glyphosate) and the other chemical pesticides and herbicides used on GMOs, are also gaining national attention. A recent study published in the Journal of Toxicology in Vitro, for instance, revealed that even very low levels of Roundup destroy testosterone and lead to male infertility (http://www.naturalnews.com/035135_Roundup_herbicide_testosterone.html).

In 2009, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) concluded that GMOs “pose a serious health risk,” and called for an immediate moratorium on their cultivation and use in food. Credible scientific studies continue to show that consumption of GMOs is linked to organ damage, gastrointestinal disorders, autoimmune illnesses, and infertility. GMOs also do not perform any better than natural or hybrid crops.

Crony Capitalism: Green firms burn through taxpayer dollars, pay huge executive bonuses, then go bankrupt


Crony capitalism: Green firms burn through taxpayer dollars, pay huge executive bonuses, then go bankrupt

via Crony capitalism: Green firms burn through taxpayer dollars, pay huge executive bonuses, then go bankrupt.

(NaturalNews) The Obama Administration’s green energy development program, which has leveraged billions of taxpayer dollars into high-risk green energy startups, is rapidly turning out to be one of the biggest financial scams on the American people in recent history. A new investigative report by ABC News has revealed that many of the now-bankrupt green energy companies that received massive taxpayer-funded loan infusions from the Department of Energy (DOE) awarded huge cash bonuses to their executives shortly before crumbling.

Many readers will recall the FBI raid on solar technology company Solyndra that took place last fall, in which agents stormed the Fremont, Cal.-based facility just days after it had declared bankruptcy. Solyndra was the first company to receive federal funding under the Obama green energy plan, having received more than $500 million, and it was also the first to fail (http://www.naturalnews.com/033551_Solyndra_bankruptcy.html).

Several months later, CBS News revealed that at least 11 other companies that had collectively received more than $6.5 billion in taxpayer loans under the Obama green energy scheme had also failed, or were in the process of failing (http://www.naturalnews.com/034717_Solyndra_green_energy_failures.html). And according to private emails uncovered by ABC News just after the Solyndra scandal made headlines, Obama and Co. knew that Solyndra, and possibly even some of the other companies it had given loans to, was in the throes of collapse long before the multi-million dollar loans were made (http://www.naturalnews.com/033606_Solyndra_emails.html).

Now it appears that the executives at many of these failed companies made off with millions of dollars in golden parachute bonuses just before their firms bit the dust, according to Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) records recently obtained. So collectively, these failed companies doled out several million dollars in taxpayer funds to company executives just months, or even weeks, prior to their filing for bankruptcy.

Corporate fascism now openly siphoning taxpayer dollars via government grants to enrich company executives

Beacon Power Corp., for instance, which was the second company after Solyndra to receive a DOE grant, for $43 million, awarded $259,285 in bonuses to three company executives in March 2010, just six months before filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. And EnerDel, which received $118.5 million from the federal government awarded $725,000 in bonuses to three executives just a few months before filing for bankruptcy. And the list goes on and on.

It is bad enough that taxpayers are not being properly represented for their money having been squandered away by the Obama team on bad loans to failing companies. But it is even worse that a large chunk of this cash ended up padding the pockets of executives whose companies failed after having been subsidized by these very same taxpayers to begin with.

“Any company that’s going into bankruptcy or any executive that ran a company into bankruptcy shouldn’t be getting bonuses in the first place,” said Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) in response to absurd claims made by some that these company executives actually deserved their bonuses. “The purpose of our grants for energy or almost any other grant of government is for the purpose of innovation. It’s not for the purpose of feathering the nest of a private company executive.”
