SaLuSa  26-February-2010

There is nothing that you cannot achieve if you put your mind to it, and with purpose and will you can set your vision in place and at sometime it will manifest. Humans tend to be impatient, but with time you will find opportunities will come up to achieve your aim. We know that many of you wish to be of service to other people, and healing is often looked upon as a very worthwhile objective. To achieve it you have to apply yourself to the disciplines necessary to be successful. As with your path to Ascension you should be aiming to raise your vibrations. If you desire to channel healing energies, your body that is the vessel through which they move, must be as pure as possible. It is the same if you aspire to the idea of being a channel for spiritual messages, as the higher your vibration the more suitable you are going to be.

As time goes by more of you will find that with your rising levels of consciousness, contact with your Higher Self will become much more easier. Yet again you will need to apply yourself if you are to create a clear link. Learning to still the mind and how to relax is most important, and regular meditation will help you achieve it. You may refer to your intuitive moments as Self guidance, but in reality these are the times when you have contacted your Higher Self. In any situation where you are uncertain of what to do, it is a good idea to practise the disciplines of relaxation. These open up your channel, and in time it will become quite automatic and natural.

Obviously with so much about to happen, there will be many times when you will look for guidance as to what it signifies. There are of course a considerable number of sources of information around at present, and they may not necessarily agree with each other. This is where your own ability comes in, and intuitively you should be able to receive guidance. Some people liken it to instinct, and that is a reasonable comparison except that your Higher Self has a complete overview of everything that is happening. We accept that once our presence is made known, that it will cause much confusion in the minds of those who have never considered such a possibility, or have denied it.  Yet in your subconscious memories you have knowledge of us, and in previous lives may have had some form of contact with us. These difficulties will be quickly dealt with by appropriate announcements; by way of an explanation as to what our purpose is where you are concerned. We have already paved the way for such an occasion, but in spite of that not everyone is prepared.

Dear Ones, we have been working towards this time of Ascension for a very long time, and have gone to great lengths to ease you into accepting us. We now know that our coming will be largely greeted with joy, as we are your divinely appointed guides for these last years of duality in the 3rd dimension. Better still we are to work actively with you, as ours is a joint venture to ensure success in bringing you into the New Age. As you know there is an immense amount of work to do, but we shall complete it in quick time. Whatever delays occur, they will not alter the outcome on bit. We are too well organised to be thwarted by any attempt of the dark Ones to create difficulty. In any event, we hope to have removed them from all positions of power before our mission starts in earnest.

Now we are all in that period of waiting to see how the final events will be set in place. Certainly our allies are gaining more confidence in tackling the tasks set before them. We compliment them on their intense focus on the final outcome, and all proceeds very well. There is hardly a major area in your lives that does not require changing, if you are to move on and enjoy the rights and freedom that are your entitlement. It is the promise of such changes that once generally known will draw all people together. It will not take long before you rise up as a civilisation, taking the path to recognition as one ready for galactic membership.

The future for you is so wonderful that what you experience now bears little resemblance to your coming lives. Your greatest desire is to live in happiness, but in duality that is a never in your grasp for very long. You are such a mixture of different Beings whose consciousness levels vary so much, that your goals in life can be very far apart from each other. You divide and separate based on those differences and the dark Ones exploit them for their own benefit. However, there is a welcome movement amongst you that is doing its best to break down barriers. You are finding that you have much more in common with each other than you thought.

All that is taking place is a sign of the times, and the feeling of unease will soon be replaced by one of hope and faith in your future. The world is not going to end and indeed it must keep evolving, as that is the nature of All That Is. It cannot stand still and is mystically attracted to the Source, where you will finally reach the ultimate completion of the return journey. The Creator draws all back into its Being, only to again commence further great cycles of experience. Such possibilities must seem so far away from your present ones,  and with your limited levels of consciousness it is too much to expect any real understanding. Even for us the mysteries still exist, and with seemingly no end to creation there is so much more to experience.

The Galactic Federation is in its own way but a stepping-stone to greater experiences, and for you will be a dramatic but welcome change from what you have been used to. The difference in consciousness levels is quite marked and it is correctly termed as a quantum leap, as you will literally become different Beings. Duality could never have been satisfying or bring you but short spells of happiness, and that is because of the continual conflict between the two forces. However that was the reason you accepted the challenge to experience it. You were prepared to pit your Light against the dark energies, knowing that ultimately the Light would be victorious, and now you have all but reached the end of that journey.

I am SaLuSa from Sirius, and send great love and blessings to you our brothers and sisters, as you prepare for Ascension.

Thank you SaLuSa.

Mike Quinsey.

Stay the Course

Saturday, February 27, 2010

The messages at this site are the result of communications between Mark Kimmel and beings who are not the indigenous humans of this planet. The communications have been verified as coming only from those who are of the highest Christ Consciousness. Messages on this site build on each other; for their full impact, read them in sequence beginning with September 2008 (archived below). They detail the situation on this planet, our place in the universe, and a positive picture for our future – if we are willing to act. I hope, by presenting them to you, that they spark your curiosity, and a decision to join with others to create a new civilization on Earth. As always I encourage you to seek your own unique truth, and live it.


This is my 1st posting to Mark’s Corner for 2010 that involves communications with off-planet beings. I welcome back Adrial, a celestial of this universe.

You will look back on 2010 as a year of great change. Do not believe the media reports that everything is returning to normal, that the economy is recovering, or that that people are satisfied with their conditions. Beneath the surface much turmoil exists. We who observe you from starcraft in orbit about your planet see this underlying shift and see the panic of the controllers as they scramble to retain their ill-gotten power and wealth.

Stay the course as we have described it to you. Prepare for the collapse of your manmade institutions. Observe the changes in your planet’s weather. Note volcanic and earthquake activity. Stay alert to the energies coming at you from beyond your planet. Much is happening; much is at stake in your individual responses to the changes.

Those of you who appreciate what is happening will soon be called upon to explain to the many what is occurring. Be prepared to provide this service. You who understand are to be the bulwark of our appearance to help the many to understand that we come in peace, that we are here to assist the positive transformation of your planet.

We have not abandoned you, just because we do not communicated for a short time. Much has been communicated in our previous messages; review them. Much is available from other sources. We are patiently waiting for the moment when we can meet with you as brother and sister, as fellow beings of this universe, and as allies with God.

Enjoy this time of waiting, for you will look back on it as a moment of relative peace and calm. Enjoy your fellow men and women. Enjoy Earth in all her beauty, even as she struggles to cope with the presence of your fear-based civilization. Enjoy what you can of your current lives, for much is about to change. Enjoy and stay the course.

I will now respond to questions from those who read these communications. The axis of the Earth is gradually being corrected to vertical. You may not feel it yet in your lives, but some evidence is forthcoming. Scientists are measuring this, but attributing it to the ‘”wobble” they have previously detected. It is not wobble; it is your space sisters and brothers exerting force to return the axis to vertical.

Yes, your planet is hollow; almost all planets are not solid masses. There is much more life within than on the surface of most planets. This is true of Earth also. You have fellow beings within the hollow of your planet. They are of a type that can live deep within the hotter core. They have a civilization that is much advanced from that which dwells on the surface.

Oneness with all in creation is what is asked of each of aspect of creation. Oneness means seeing all others of your species as equal, not different. Oneness means seeing the consciousness in animals, plants, and rocks, seeing them as creations of God. Oneness means appreciating all in the universe as your brothers and sisters, as part of a vast creation, as part of the grand drama.

The period of the transition in which you find yourselves at this moment is the downward spiral as all that was created in fear, all that was used to control you, and all that was for the benefit of the few deteriorates and collapses. This will be followed by a period of rebuilding from the level playing field of love and oneness. The collapse will take but a few more months; the rebuilding will be a prolonged effort taking many years. You may think of the collapse as the end of the 3rd dimension; the rebuilding will take place in the 4th dimension. There will be no instantaneous transformation from the 3rd to the 4th. Although this could happen, if all on your planet were to so desire, there are far too many who cling to their current lives. We will have more to say about this in future communications.

When the moon is removed from earth’s orbit, women’s menstrual cycle will no longer be regulated by it, but will return to what it was before the moon was placed in orbit as a control mechanism over this and much more.

There is no planet X that will approach Earth at this time, nor will a period of darkness envelope the planet. All shifts of the planet will take place gradually as they are within the control of your space brothers and sisters. There is time of alignment with the center of the galaxy. That will occur during 2012, but more import is the devolvement of your artificial structures and the shift from fear to love as a basis for your new civilization. To the extent that all people of your planet focus their attitude on love and turn from fear, the shift to a love-based civilization will be accomplished with a minimum of dislocations. As long as a majority cling to fear, the transformation will be more difficult.

You who read and understand these words have an opportunity to assist the transformation, a responsibility if you will. If you are reading these words, hold an attitude of expectation of the joy that will accompany the transformation. See the energies changing, feel the changes in your bodies, and hold fast to the knowledge that all can and will be beautiful, joyous, and loving after the time of transition. Hold fast to the light of the Creator. Do not despair as events swirl about you. Stay the course that we have outlined for you. We are here to assist. Together we will create a new civilization on earth.

I am Adrial, a celestial of this universe. I bid you adieu until we communicate again.

Thank you Adrial.

The Nature of Reality and the Concepts Of Energy

Posted by Admin on February 28, 2010

The Final  Wake-up Call

The Final Wake-up Call


2-25-10 to 4-25-10


“The Nature of Reality, the Concepts Of Energy”

NOTE: Blue Star wishes to include a special message for all people. This message is to remain on the website for the entire year of 2010.

*People of all nations, please listen to what I have to say: this year of 2010 is a year that will never be forgotten. Those who are progressing on their own path of Spiritual evolution at their own pace, will be facing many trials and tribulations FOR A WHILE this year. You are each here on the Earth Star planet for more than 1 reason; all you really need to know about that is that this is the year you all trained for. 2010 is a year to live courageously! All that you know and all that you think you know is being put to the test. How you each handle these tests will be your own measure of greatness, your own meter of your strengths and weaknesses. We will all continue watching over you as will those of the Spirit world. We will aid all those we can. Those who refuse to change, well, their future is now written in stone. The answer to “11-11” is IN “2011.”

=============================================================================================================================================

Now, reality exists on many levels. There are those who firmly believe in the reality of the HERE and Now while declining to mentally participate in the essence of the true reality regarding the complexity of the nature of energy. Energy transmits itself through certain thought processes; it is the delineation and transformation of endless “bio-mat-i-cal” electrical waves. The term “non-control” is relative to the synthesis of the releasing of preconceived left-brain thinking and the necessity of relearning to exist in the Universal flow of superior knowledge. This state exists now for many among you ones as it has for many eons. The left-brain gravitational pull is also the result of the inner conflict mankind experiences which does indeed result in a blockage in one’s Spirituality. This is precisely when manipulation of all which should NOT be coerced does occur. One’s Spirituality is but a direct reflection of the personality’s mind, heart and Soul when in or out of alignment with the SoulSelf.

Any readjustment of a Soul’s direction CANNOT be forced. In truth, it would be no different than attempting to place square pegs into round holes. The intent should be to focus upon inner, as opposed to outer existence. This will in turn alter the outer, the NETHER, into the dimensional opposite of left-brain thinking, which is in itself a type of molecular catalyst. This causes a massive fluctuation of energy from left to center to right-brain “brain spheres.” This flow is a slow but vitally important process. Those who utilize the process of rationalization as a means of understanding the cosmos, are forever operating on a plateau of lower learning and diminished vibrational frequency, not to mention diminished capacity. This Creates an effect of stagnation which if continued, considerably lessens the opportunities for growth. It will also serve to further delay the energy acceleration which transmits subatomic particles through a subtle oxidation process. This important process once initiated then results in a type of purified, laser type energy metamorphosed into cosmic WHOLENESS. At one time far too many Earth scientists of every nation, with the rather notable exception of Russia, did denote energy as a focus for experiments dealing SOLELY with technological nuclear advancements. By tending to devote left-brain thinking into symbols associated with rocket propulsion with the inherent potential to control weaponry for the progress of their countries, they ignored the REALITY of the SOURCE of ALL energy. They indulged in diatribes directed towards all those Souls who KNOW that it is indeed the right-brain path which is the director of evolved energy. Little do these foolish learned men and women of science know that it is these particular brain waves that originate from and through a HIGHER reality. Even yet today, many metaphysicians and those in the medical fields do not understand this, they only know what they have been taught.

Many of the healing antidotes “discovered” for medical cures are present within the endorphin system. Although some individual’s immune systems differ, the pituitary and the pineal glands are pivotal locations for natural healing energy. The wise scientists would do weIl to REALLY study the appendix! Many well-known doctors and scientists as well, have perfected ways of locating glandular secretions for the treatment and possible cure of various physical and mental ailments. This is done by treating these different maladies with man’s own cells and tissues. The fact that mankind Creates the majority of their own ailments remains ignored and unacknowledged. I am of course not speaking of all the ailments that have been created by various governments. Thus the true nature of their problems is still un-chartered territory. The medical people who preen themselves the most about their wondrous accomplishments with their patients, are the very ones who tend to disbelieve anything other than what they themselves have been taught by their teachers and their study books. Many psychiatrists and psychologists have established cults within your societies and YOU have given them permission to do so! These ones tend to band together for mainly monetary reasons; they adhere to strict rules governing their views of REALITY regarding “RATIONAL” and “NORMAL” behavioral and thinking patterns. Now, for every dis-ease and ill-ness man has Created for himself, including those that have been born in laboratories, there do indeed exist cures. Many of these antidotes are located within the PHYSICAL body; again I reiterate … housed within the base of the adrenal, pineal and pituitary. These are but a couple of the primary areas which are not clearly SEEN nor understood for their healing properties…the secret lies within the root of the system. They are extremely potent “BODIES” of natural antibiotic enhancement. These roots are also responsible for exuding secretions which when properly used, AND in the right hands, can also treat the mentally impaired.

Untold billions of dollars each year are accumulated in the form of revenue paid out to “experts” in the field of mental illness. This appears to have become a trend for many personalities who regard analysis as the “norm.” In many instances, more harm than good is the final result. This type of cult can be dangerous to the masses. Now, the conceptual level of “knowing,” is to simply accept that mankind for all of their combined intelligence, is still afraid of that which it is unable to break down into ACCEPTED theories of understanding. Very few of the scientific minded possess the tenacity of the fearless …. to speak out and recognize the reality of what is erroneously termed “PARANORMAL.” The reality and true essence of paranormal is actually “NORMAL.” It was never our intention that the scientific mind would assume CONTROL over mankind’s emotional and Spiritual status. Billions of micro-circuitry which govern the part of the brain that Creates the “genius sphere,” were implanted for the sole intent of assisting the human race in utilizing the geometric part of self for the advancement of positive technology. The purpose of our implanting and transmitting this type of knowledge, (genetic ideas known by you as genius), was for the advancements desired and deemed necessary at that particular time to harness nuclear energy. But NOT for nuclear wars!

Instead, our gifts to you have been badly abused. Millions of people across the Earth Star planet, as well as vast expanses of land, have been destroyed. This does indeed constitute a misuse of power. Other entities on other planets have committed this same grievous offense. THEY are now EXTINCT! Your rationalization of utilizing energy for the purpose of self-defense of a nation is pure self-deception. It is also deliberate deception by the governments of the world. In truth, your peoples have become obsessed with POWER. Yet they know not what it really means. If those men and women working in the psychiatric field would willingly eliminate their scientific perspective of the human mind, the amount of pristine molecules of energy then amassed would be enough to light 10,000,000 cities simply through thought. This would indeed be a marriage of the analytical with the Spiritual. Since this occurs only rarely, it has been necessary to provide a counterbalance to those of rigid, analytical bent. It required that a new term be sent to you ones in a related field; PARAPSYCHOLOGIST. The majority of these gifted individuals combine left-brain scientific dogma with the SOULSELF. This is also the reason for “today’s” continuity of the large numbers of holistic healers. This is part of the Creator’s method of balancing the scales. Because many personalities are attempting to deceive others for monetary gain, it would be most appropriate for me to reiterate.…one must always discern when seeking assistance in any matters relating to the mind or to the Spirit.

Allow your intuitive Self to guide you, to direct you in these matters. For those of you unsure of your ability to use your intuition, please know that at any time you may call upon your guides for any and all assistance. DO NOT ASK UNLESS YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW! The raising of the kundalini energy and properly channeling this force results in a harmonious convergence which has no equal in power or intensity as you know it. The walk-ins already awakened as well as those who will soon emerge victoriously, and all the good Souls who are remembering who They are, have been CONSCIOUSLY directing this energy to revitalize themselves and to Create new sites of peace and security. Those of the Spirit world and our Star Keeper races retain a luminescent matrix and simultaneously transmit a CONSTANT flow of incandescent energy and Light molecules to other of our brethren here, as well as in other galaxies. Although we also send other filaments of Light-based energies, these would be ones you are unfamiliar with. Thus we have formed an indestructible umbilical cord composed of a type of untainted rays. These rays are now discernible to many AMONG you. The true transmutation of power as energy transmitted to an individual, is a process which can continue without interruption, once the initial phase is begun. Of course the person who may have been the petitioner requesting this phasing-in process must always accept personal responsibility for maintaining this energy and using it wisely.

There are 2 types of obvious energy-mediumship that you have heard about, but may not have believed in.

#1-psychics

#2-psychic Spiritualists

Psychics are indeed mediums; many of them are walk-ins and Star Keepers. These personalities bring into manifestation events of the past, present and future through the means of traveling through the higher dimensions of reality. They do this for the sole purpose of advising and/or forewarning individuals of problems or challenges yet to occur in their lives. Psychic Spiritualists are quite often those mediums of walk-in and Star Keeper heritage who also bring forth innate knowledge and relay truth to the seekers. These psychics focus on an individual’s SOUL purpose and lessons yet to be learned on the path of Spiritual evolution. Many of these ones are in truth, the warriors among mankind. Many, many years ago, the Illuminati forces implanted heinous thoughts in the minds of most, if not all, of this world’s leaders. The government leaders then “decided” to not only control this influx of Creative Energy, all energy regarded as psychic, although the true term Is “psyche,” but to direct it in murderous fashion. This began in earnest as a weapon, this was when true psyche attacks were launched against targeted individuals as well as at other countries.

Please understand peoples, much was made of the possible evaluations of using the energy for use in laser technology and the potential to use this God-given gift to annihilate other countries and peoples. This process of deadly manipulation is STILL being perfected by all of the world’s Illuminati controlled countries. However, certain blockages have been placed around the extended use of psyche warfare. Today, it is not working well at all.

Now, the United States Government for instance, in spite of publicly rejecting their knowledge of both Star Keeper existences and psyche phenomena, is VERY much aware of the potential which exists for using this energy as a weapon of war. In particular, they perceive UFO energy as a means to rule outer space. This is why the CIA had literally controlled all knowledge of UFO encounters and uses covert methods to decry our true reality and purpose. Many years ago, they achieved the rather dubious distinction of being America’s true ruler. This occurred when they deliberately tricked the air force and even their own scientists and “legally,” assumed all power over ALL news of UFOS, thus effectively dictating what the public would actually know about. HOWEVER the U.S. Navy, which never did like to be “second in line,” soon was able to wrest a great deal of that power from the CIA and today is “top dog” with the dealings of misinformation relating to any and all UFO activity. Now, whereas a few other countries view the psyche ability as a top priority in their perception of their coming war times, the United States tends at MOST times, to perceive it as a secondary issue. None of these “super powers,” are completely cognizant of the relativity between the psyche energies and UFOS. Many less nuclear oriented countries acknowledge the importance of the potent formulas which are the nucleus of that which is known as “psyche energy.” Some third-world countries which lack the monetary resources to expand their study of ESP focus their intent on the extra-sensory energies for personal and/or Spiritual reasons. In many respects these countries are indeed the WISEST.

Now, regarding the desecration of the Spiritual life force: prana has been abused by the dark Souls on this planet in horrendous ways which have involved torture, mental intimidation, slaughter and when deemed necessary, forced INCEST. Thus it is that this once strong binomial influx of molecular energy has become tainted. The intent of these unholy alliances has been for eons to further perfect the psyche studies while maintaining secrecy until such time that it is deemed to be the most propitious timeline to materialize unlimited power for territorial gains. The timeline now of super importance IS mid-2011. This timing is in conjunction with the period when the black beast will raise it’s evil head for one last great thrust targeting the mass consciousness, which has been altering, albeit slowly, to form part of the new collective consciousness, from service-to-self to service-to-others. The years 2007 through 2012 are ones that clearly show the greatest of massive changes. Not all of them pleasant. The years following 2012 are the “reformation years.” Tis why each year is so important here, each year has a destiny to fulfill. This period of organized-chaos will be the forerunner which will usher in the time period when specific contrived plans to control the minds and the Spirits of the human races will be stopped. The Illuminati controlled countries and the Vatican of course, had at one time planned that timeline when “law” would require all peoples to be readily identified as to their psyche abilities and to be easily TRACKED by laser. This will NOT happen now!

This procedure would have served to brand all humans, particularly those whose Spiritual GIFTS are the most evolved. They planned to have humanity numbered into categories in much the same manner in which you now separate your cattle. Although the Universal Law of Probabilities was able to foresee these events we can also see through that Law that only a few of these things shall take place. For instance: It was foreseen that a numerical system would have already begun within the grand computers of the world governments strongholds, most blatantly in 1998. It was known that a coded system would be in place relegating all data both trivia and pertinent, of each person on the planet, to be sent to a main database with offshoots of that base available to covert worldwide government agencies. Furthermore that in late 1997 and again in 1998, an “idea” would once again, more strongly this time, be casually suggested to the American people; it would APPEAR to be a wonderful manner of locating lost or kidnapped Children. It would be proposed that a microchip be implanted under the skin of each newborn Child. This would appeal to families as a truly unique method of foiling kidnappers and securing lost Children …. IN FACT THIS WAS BUT A PLOY … LISTEN NOW! DO NOT CONTINUE TO BE DECEIVED OR IT COULD COST YOU THE LIFE OF YOUR LOVED ONES. The diabolical plans included that each personality would be part of a numerical code designating political status, psyche ability profile, religious affiliations and all other personal and private information, even to your sexual preferences. The list would highlight those who are to be considered foes; those who WOULD be kept under observation at all times. Psyche forces in the 21st. century were planned to run amok and be led by the dark forces. These abilities were to become honed tools which would determine the potential CULPABILITY, as well as the probable aid which each person would represent to the dark forces. Those who then and now are protected are those who KNOW how to protect themselves without the use of manmade weaponry.

Those others who have not yet perfected this ancient art, can call upon us for assistance.. however, they must still learn to defend themselves “for the greater good.” So, those of humanity and those among humanity who KNOW how to utilize their protective shields, are in fact among “The Chosen Ones.” What I am saying is that those who have chosen the path of Creativity and combined it with the gift of sharing, are those who have chosen immortality within the Light of God and within the Creator’s Light. These ones have already initiated the process of teaching likeminded Souls. They will not be forgotten .. THEY will NEVER walk alone.

Salude….Blue Star the Pleiadian

“There is a valley where that which is Spiritual stands on one side
and that which is religious stands on the other side.
In the middle walks the Creator and the Creation.
In time, all shall be as one…I shall meet you there.”
….Blue Star……

Prehistoric UFO and ET images found in remote cave in India

Prehistoric UFO and ET images found in remote cave in India

Prehistoric UFO and ET images found in remote cave in India

A group of anthropologists working with hill tribes in a remote area of India have made a startling discovery: Intricate prehistoric cave paintings depicting aliens and UFO type craft.

The images were found in the Hoshangabad district of the state of Madhya Pradesh only 70 kilometers from the local administrative centre of Raisen. The caves are hidden deep within dense jungle.

A clear image of what might be an alien or ET in a space suit can be seen in one cave painting along with a classical flying saucer shaped UFO that appears to be either beaming something down or beaming something up, in what might be an ancient UFO abduction scenario. A force-field or trail of some sort is seen at the rear of the UFO.

Also visible is another object that might depict a wormhole, explaining how aliens were able to reach Earth. This image may lead UFO enthusiasts to conclude that the images might have been drawn with the involvement of aliens themselves.

Local Archaeologist, Mr Wassim Khan, has personally seen the images. He claims that the objects and creatures seen in them are totally anomalous and out of character when compared to other, already discovered, examples of prehistoric cave art depicting ancient life in the area. As such he believes that they might suggest beings from other planets have been interacting with humans since prehistoric times: Adding weight to the ‘ancient astronaut theory’ which postulates that human civilization was established with the assistance of benevolent space-faring aliens.

Huge quake hits Chile – Tsunami threatens Pacific

Huge quake hits Chile – Tsunami threatens Pacific

By ROBERTO CANDIA and EVA VERGARA, Associated Press Writer – 58 mins ago

TALCA, Chile – A devastating earthquake struck Chile early Saturday, toppling homes, collapsing bridges and plunging trucks into the fractured earth. A tsunami set off by the magnitude-8.8 quake threatened every nation around the Pacific Ocean — roughly a quarter of the globe.

Interior Minister Edmundo Perez Yoma said the most powerful quake to hit the country in a half-century killed at least 82 people, but the death toll was rising quickly.

In the town of Talca, just 65 miles (105 kilometers) from the epicenter, Associated Press journalist Roberto Candia said it felt as if a giant had grabbed him and shaken him.

The town’s historic center, filled with buildings of adobe mud and straw, largely collapsed, though most of those were businesses that were not inhabited during the 3:34 a.m. (1:34 a.m. EST, 0634 GMT) quake. Neighbors pulled at least five people from the rubble while emergency workers, themselves disoriented, asked for information from reporters.

Many roads were destroyed, and electricity, water and phone lines were cut to many areas — meaning there was no word of death or damage from many outlying areas.

In the Chilean capital of Santiago, 200 miles (325 kilometers) northeast of the epicenter, a car dangled from a collapsed overpass, the national Fine Arts Museum was badly damaged and an apartment building’s two-story parking lot pancaked, smashing about 50 cars whose alarms rang incessantly.

Experts warned that a tsunami could strike anywhere in the Pacific, and Hawaii could face its largest waves since 1964 starting at 11:19 a.m. (4:19 p.m. EST, 2119 GMT), according to Charles McCreery, director of the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.

Tsunami waves were likely to hit Asian, Australian and New Zealandshores within 24 hours of the earthquake. The U.S. West Coast andAlaska, too, were threatened.

A huge wave swept into a populated area in the Robinson Crusoe Islands, 410 miles (660 kilometers) off the Chilean coast, PresidentMichelle Bachelet said, but there were no immediate reports of major damage.

Bachelet had no information on the number of people injured. She declared a “state of catastrophe” in central Chile.

“We have had a huge earthquake, with some aftershocks,” she said from an emergency response center. She said Chile has not asked for assistance from other countries, and urged Chileans not to panic.

“The system is functioning. People should remain calm. We’re doing everything we can with all the forces we have. Any information we will share immediately,” she said.

Powerful aftershocks rattled Chile’s coast — 24 of them magnitude 5 or greater and one reaching magnitude 6.9 — the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

In Santiago, modern buildings are built to withstand earthquakes, but many older ones were heavily damaged, including the Nuestra Senora de la Providencia church, whose bell tower collapsed. A bridge just outside the capital also collapsed, and at least one car flipped upside down.

Several hospitals were evacuated due to earthquake damage, Bachelet said.

Santiago’s airport will remain closed for at least 24 hours, airport director Eduardo del Canto said. The passenger terminal suffered major damage, he told Chilean television in a telephone interview. TV images show smashed windows, partially collapsed ceilings and pedestrian walkways destroyed.

Santiago’s subway was shut as well and hundreds of buses were trapped at a terminal by a damaged bridge, Transportation and Telecommunications Minister told Chilean television. He urged Chileans to make phone calls or travel only when absolutely necessary.

Candia was visiting his wife’s 92-year-old grandmother in Talca when the quake struck.

“Everything was falling — chests of drawers, everything,” he said. “I was sleeping with my 8-year-old sonDiego and I managed to cover his head with a pillow. It was like major turbulence on an airplane.”

In Concepcion, 70 miles (115 kilometers) from the epicenter, nurses and residents pushed the injured through the streets on stretchers. Others walked around in a daze wrapped in blankets, some carrying infants in their arms.

Concepcion, Chile’s second-largest city, is 60 miles (95 kilometers) from the ski town of Chillan, a gateway to Andean ski resorts that was destroyed in a 1939 earthquake.

The quake also shook buildings in Argentina‘s capital of Buenos Aires, 900 miles (1,400 kilometers) away on the Atlantic side of South America.

Marco Vidal, a program director for Grand Circle Travel who was traveling with a group of 34 Americans, was on the 19th floor of the Crown Plaza Santiago hotel when the quake struck.

“All the things start to fall. The lamps, everything, was going on the floor,” he said. “I felt terrified.”

Cynthia Iocono, from Linwood, Pennsylvania, said she first thought the quake was a train.

“But then I thought, `Oh, there’s no train here.’ And then the lamps flew off the dresser and my TV flew off onto the floor and crashed.”

The quake struck after concert-goers had left South America’s leading music festival in the coastal city of Vina del Mar, but it caught partiers leaving a disco.

“It was very bad. People were screaming. Some people were running, others appeared paralyzed. I was one of them,” Julio Alvarez told Radio Cooperativa.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center called for “urgent action to protect lives and property” in Hawaii, which is among 53 nations and territories subject to tsunami warnings.

“Sea level readings indicate a tsunami was generated. It may have been destructive along coasts near theearthquake epicenter and could also be a threat to more distant coasts,” the warning center said. It did not expect a tsunami along the west of the U.S. or Canada.

The largest earthquake ever recorded struck the same area of Chile on May 22, 1960. The magnitude-9.5 quake killed 1,655 people and left 2 million homeless. The tsunami that it caused killed people in Hawaii,Japan and the Philippines and caused damage to the west coast of the United States.

Arcturian Perspectives – “The Way of the Warrior”

Posted by Admin on February 25, 2010

Awakened Hearts.com – ” Arcturian Perspectives “ Warriors Spirits

“The Way of the Warrior”

Greetings, to each of you, kindred Spirits and fellow Earthlings. I see that a great many of you are working on the problems at hand, while even more are still stumbling about as if they had not a clue that the times you are living in, unaware that the times you have long labored for-are finally at hand. I can tell you that each of you did indeed know full well of the present conditions that are unfolding and as such you have no room to balk at them. Each one of you walked-in or was born-in with full understanding that this time, this lifetime, was to be for all the marbles and that it was to be one for the memory books. If you will allow me, I say “Go for the Gold.” “The Golden You,” that is. Rise up above everything you believe to be hindering your forward movement, discard your I can’t do this thought patterns and be the person you truly are, not the one you have been led to believe you are. Your service is needed more so now than at any other time in Earth’s history. And no, I am not just speaking of the walk-in forces that are presently there on the planet; I am referring to everyone who currently wears the mortal form of Earthizen.

Long ago we had foreseen everything that was to unfold there and it is happening now in your present time. We also knew that without sufficient forces to combat the evil that had sauntered in and taken control of the planet and its inhabitants that this time would be for naught. So we sent you, we chose you, you volunteered to go there to Earth and be present at this time, to not only make a difference, more so to stand in the face of diversity and reveal long forgotten truths. You knew it would not be easy removing the blinders from the masses and yet you felt you each had what it took to succeed, even though the odds would seem insurmountable. Is this the beginning of the beginning? I think not, for it is well beyond that now. This is the end game you are playing. The cycle of completion is upon you. The cast has been chosen, the players are in motion and this planet is striving to repair herself from eons of habitual disregard. She is starving no more, she is gliding and swaying and dancing to the beat of a new drummer. And that drummer is also Terra herself. She is orchestrating the massive changes needed for her ascension. She is also offering you a ticket to ride. No, the fare is not paid for nor will it be guaranteed to any of you. She expects each of you to live up to you own Godliness and rise above the moral turpitude of the masses.

Long ago she stepped forward and volunteered to be the Soul that would reside within this experimental planet, God’s Planet, and usher in this new race of beings. She knew full well what was ahead of her. What she did not count on was that so many of you would be trapped in the illusion of time and unproductive repetitive thought processing. She did not know that so many of you would kowtow to the darker more basic instincts. Nor did she know that so many of you would toy with this darkness and then would fall in line with this malaise, hook and sinker. She is a wonderfully sweet Soul who only wanted to give each of you the opportunity to better yourselves, to surpass your own expectations of yourselves. And now, what have you accomplished? How many of you are full of love and wearing your mantle of Greatness proudly? How many of you are still running amuck and falling into fear for your very existence, every time a voice of dissension derails you? If it is the latter how do you suppose that equates with Godliness? I personally do not see the connection. Each one of you has what it takes to make a stand and embrace the upcoming changes and yet so many of you fear it so much. What you really fear is the unknown. I say, “Step into the abyss and find out if you have indeed learned to soar with the eagles.” Time will answer that one for everyone.

Five years ago, ten years ago, fifty years ago, you all screamed that it was time for change and that call was answered in the here and now. Now that it is upon you, you fear for the life and for the comfort and security you have become accustomed to. For many of the shallowest amongst you, you fear for the preservation of your precious soap operas and your sports channels, not to mention the safety of your ipods and other expensive treasures that are not what they seem to be. Each one of you requires something to be complete, to be whole. Do you really think you will find that in the accumulation of one more material possession? Do you really think that if you were rich beyond your dreams that you would truly be happy? Do you still believe that money can buy you love? If you do my heart goes out to you, for your ticket to ride will not be honored.

Look at your lives and all that you have allowed to be OK. You have become an on- demand society. “On demand” in this sense simply means – to have instant gratification and it matters naught what it is that you seek. For far too many of you, whatever it is you desire, you want it and you want it now, whether it be a meal for dinnertime, another quick jaunt to the store, or a simple pleasure that only lasts for a mere flicker in time, for it holds no substance. How many of you have allowed yourself to become so weak willed? How many of you still value others opinions of yourself? In past times you knew full well the need to put away food stores for the hard times, the winter months. You could learn a lot from a bear. The animal kingdom is much wiser than the average human being in many aspects. They know instinctively of their connection with All That Is. They know intuitively when to take shelter from bad weather, when to lay away food for a long winter and they trust the timely hints that this beloved planet gives to them about upcoming changes, without question. How many of you can say that you are that much in-tune with the Heartbeat of The Universe?

In the greater scheme of things much of what you once thought invaluable will become known for its triviality, its common-placity and normalcy. Your treasured gold, silver and diamonds will be recognized for the true value that they each hold. How many of you are aware of the healing properties that are associated with gold? Do you think it was coincidence or con-incidence that they became the standard for your monetary systems and for many people they are untouchable, unobtainable? Those who coerced you to install your blinders knew full well what they were doing when they attached a monetary value to an item that is so extremely commonplace on your planet. How many of you realize the true potential of the crystals that you love to collect so dearly? Do you not know that they play a major part of what keeps you planet in balance, just as your beloved petroleum lubricates the tectonic plates with your planet? Do you think that their secreted locations were not systematically placed there for a purpose?

Much of what you thought you knew will soon reveal itself for what it truly is. Are you ready to alter your beliefs and see the greater picture or are you going to pooh-pooh what the truly wise ones enlighten you with? One of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself will be understanding, compassion and forgiveness of self. You must now come to realize that all life is Sacred that none is to be taken for granted and none is without merit and yes, this includes the animal and planet kingdoms as well. Each living organism on the planet was intentionally put there for a purpose. Each one of you is an invaluable part of that Divine Plan. If you truly understood that, how could you scoff at another who is not as enlightened as you, or are you in truth not as en-light-ened as the ones you look down upon? Can you search your heart and truthfully come up with the answer that you are better or more important than someone-anyone else? Can you justify the loss of life that occurs each and every day without feeling that you are a part of those events? Have you yet learned to feel compassion for both the victim and the victimizer? Can you see the larger picture and see how intricately sensitive all life is and the need to have balance in this system? Oh, so you did not put that gun to that person, nor did you sell them the drugs or teach them how to abuse the system. It must have been the other person who looked the other way.

The universal system is full of checks and balances if you look closely enough. No life should be regarded above another. No stone, no body of water should be disturbed or moved without first considering the consequences. No trees should be cut down without considerable consideration given to the purpose of its reality. Life is poetry in motion. Swaying to the beat are those who are in harmony with it. Life is precious, not something to be taken lightly. Each mote of energy is connected to the whole and disrupting the flow of the electrical surges can cause mountains to move. And yes, the mountains are always on the move, consider that when you choose your next location to reside in. Terra is cleansing herself now in preparation for the next stage in human evolution. That next stage is you, are you willing to do your part? If so how can you find time to fear for your livelihoods without being concerned about the security and wellbeing of all the others who are going through these transitioning times? How many of you devote enough time to your Spiritual growth and listening to your Soul Voice?

Which brings us to the “Way of the Warrior.” Are you all warriors, yes you are. You are the Spiritual Warriors of God, of The Creator. You are all evolving beings of Light whose purpose is to learn from your experiences, to share that which you have learned with others and to rise above the mundane temptations of living a physical life in a physical universe. Nobody said it was going to be easy, just worth it. Each one of you is so much more than you realize, yet you are not above another life form, no matter its size or current state of evolution. You are each a personage of your Higher Self, you are an expression of Soul Voice. Combined with all your other Selves and as the individual Self, you are a force to be reckoned with. “Why,” you may ask? Because you are all an aspect of the Divinity, you are each a separate unique aspect of the God of this Universe. Now does that not make you feel special, important beyond measure? I should think so.

The true Spiritual Warriors can move mountains with their minds, they can alter the flow of the currents and more importantly they can bring balance and an abundance of Light to any area of this tainted planet. Infuse yourselves with Light of All Lights, that which is The Jesus The Christ Consciousness and rise up to the challenges that you all volunteered to undertake. Be the Peaceful Warrior; teach these ways to those who are ready and willing to listen. Become the Gods and Goddesses that you are. Forget what others tell you, rise up above your physical self and become the person you are. You do not have to do great acts; you need to anchor the Light to this planet in one decisive revelation that will undeniably say to this planet, this Universe that this planet is home for the dark overlords no longer. Give them their ticket to leave by making this planet you call home so bright and effervescent that they are blinded by the Light. A small hint here, you can do this without ever leaving your home so please do not let me hear some of you thinking that there is nothing you can do about the ongoing current repetitive situations. You are powerful beyond your wildest dreams, yet so many know this not. You will never see those who do recognize this in themselves expounding upon their abilities to others, they will be recognized by the innocence and the brilliance that define their every thought and deed. They do not need tickertape parades, nor would they show up if one was given to them. They are the true expression of God I AM walking in human form. They have not forgotten their origins and their purpose for Be-ing.

Forget for just a moment and then expand that moment into five minute intervals, all that is wrong in the world and concentrate on all that is good. Concentrate and focus your thoughts on all that you wish to have happen, all that you wish to unfold here on God’s planet, His Eden. Expand those thought forms omni-directionally and send them out into the ethers. Take a moment each and every day to thank this beloved Soul Terra, who IS this planet, for all which she blesses you with. Thank her for all that she has endured from you and for you. Thank her for having this chance here and now to bring the Golden Light of God to this corner of the galaxy once again. Now immerse yourselves in His (God’s) Love. Speak with God as if you are talking with one of your loved ones, share your thoughts and ideas and then quiet your mind and listen for His response. HE is LISTENING. Now you are living the way of the Warrior.

From the Heavens above and from here on Earth, we are,
Michael and David
Au revoir

Methane Causes Vicious Cycle In Global Warming(Hoax)

Methane Causes Vicious Cycle In Global Warming(Hoax)

by Richard Harris

January 26, 2010

Farmers in Thailand tend to a rice paddy in Yala province.

Farmers in Thailand tend to a rice paddy in Yala province. Rice paddies are one of the main sources of methane emissions worldwide.

Carbon dioxide is the gas we most associate with global warming, but methane gas also plays an important role. For reasons that are not well understood, methane gas stopped increasing in the atmosphere in the 1990s. But now it appears to be once again on the rise. Scientists are trying to understand why — and what to do about it.

Methane gas comes from all sorts of sources including wetlands, rice paddies, cow tummies, coal mines, garbage dumps and even termites. Drew Shindell, at NASA’s Goddard Institute in New York, says, “It’s gone up by 150 percent since the pre-industrial period. So that’s an enormous increase. CO2, by contrast, has gone up by something like 30 percent.”

More From This Series

Molecule for molecule, methane is much more effective than carbon dioxide at trapping heat in the atmosphere. And that’s just part of the trouble.

“Methane is much more complicated once it gets into the atmosphere than something like carbon dioxide is,” Shindell says, “and that’s because it reacts with a lot of different important chemicals.”

Bad For Climate And Health

For example, methane in the atmosphere also creates ground-level ozone. And ozone isn’t only bad for human health; it also contributes to global warming. Shindell recently totaled up all the effects of methane emissions and realized that the heating effect is more than 60 percent that of carbon dioxide’s.

“So that tells you that methane is a pretty big player.”

Methane in the atmosphere leveled off in the 1990s, so it seemed that efforts to control industrial emissions were keeping this problem gas in check. But since 2007, methane levels have been on the rise again.

Wetlands Cause Vicious Cycle

A study published last week in Science magazine suggests that at least part of this increase is coming from the vast wetlands in Canada, Russia and the Arctic. The methane in wetlands comes from naturally occurring bacteria. But study author Paul Palmer at the University of Edinburgh says the bacteria are producing more methane because the temperature is rising.

“The higher the temperature, the more efficient they are at producing methane,” he says. So global warming is causing these wetlands to produce more methane. And the methane is causing more global warming.

Global warming is causing these wetlands to produce more methane. And the methane is causing more global warming.

– Paul Palmer, University of Edinburgh

“This really does demonstrate the fact that we are having this vicious cycle in the climate system. And we’re seeing it now.”

It’s not yet to the stage where it’s a runaway warming effect, Palmer says. But climate scientists are worried that we could hit that tipping point.

There’s no obvious way to control methane from natural wetlands other than to keep them from overheating. But at least half of methane emissions are from human activities, ranging from cattle-rearing and natural gas exploration to coal mining.

Capturing Methane Cost-Effective

Since methane is the main ingredient of natural gas, efforts to capture it can actually pay for themselves. You use the gas for energy. And Shindell says there are other benefits of controlling methane. Methane contributes to ozone, which costs society real money because of its human health effects, and ozone also damages crops.

“So if you account for all the economics, all the gains that you get through the benefits of controlling methane that aren’t even related to climate, you find that many of the reductions you could make actually pay for themselves,” Shindell says.

Even so, there’s relatively little effort now to control methane. Mohamed El-Ashry at the United Nations Foundation says part of the reason has been a fear by governments and advocates that attacking methane would be a dangerous distraction.

“People are worried about diverting attention away from carbon dioxide,” he says. “But that shouldn’t really be the case at all.”

Restart Methane Projects

Both problems need to be solved sooner or later. But global methane projects practically ground to a halt last year.

El-Ashry says that was partly because of uncertainty over the outcome of the global warming talks in Copenhagen, and partly because of the global financial crisis. Credit wasn’t available to finance methane projects, even though they were ready to go.

El-Ashry is part of a group advocating for a new $200 million fund to help jump-start these methane programs again.

“Here is an opportunity to have an immediate effect in terms of impacts, particularly on the Arctic, and secondary impacts, like on health,” he says.

And the good thing about methane is that it stays in the air for only about a decade, so if you can reduce emissions, you can see quick results.

Why a price on carbon will not stop deforestation

Why a price on carbon will not stop deforestation

By Chris Lang, 17th February 2010

Indonesia forest destruction palm oil, PHOTO: Greenpeace

Three straws in the wind: Two pieces of policy news and a new piece of research. Two weeks ago, a leaked document from the EU revealed that the European Commission and some member states hope to include oil palm plantations in the definition of forests. Yesterday, the Jakarta Post reported that Indonesia’s Forestry Ministry is drafting a decree to reclassify oil palm plantations as “forests”.

Last week, the European Commission’s Science for Environment Policy put out a News Alert with the headline “Pricing carbon insufficient to save tropical forests from deforestation”.

There are two related issues here. The first is the definition of “forest”. Currently, the UN defines a forest as any area larger than 500 square metres with crown cover of 10 per cent and trees capable of growing two metres high. Clearly, this definition fails to address the conversion of native forests to monoculture industrial tree plantations. (Incidentally, the UN has not yet attempted to agree a definition of forest degradation. The latest document from the Ad-hoc Working Group on the Kyoto Protocol, includes two alternative lists of definitions. But the word “degradation” is not included in either list, not even in square brackets.)

The second issue is whether deforestation (including conversion of forests to monocultures) can be prevented by putting a price on carbon. Recent research, published in Environmental Science and Technology found that putting a price on carbon is unlikely to prevent forests being cleared for oil palm plantations. Part of the problem is that a higher carbon price drives up demand for biofuels (as an alternative to expensive fossil fuels). This in turn increases both the price of biofuels and the likelihood that forests are converted to oil palm plantations.

Under the EU’s Renewable Energy Directive, 10 per cent of all road transport fuel will have to be “renewable” by 2020. This directive has helped drive a massive expansion in the area of oil palm plantations for biofuel, which has resulted in the destruction of vast areas of forest (and therefore increased greenhouse gas emissions). Instead of addressing this problem, the EU seems determined to make matters worse. A draft communication (available here – pdf file 98 KB) from the European Commission was recently leaked. It is supposed to provide guidance to EU member states on the use of biofuels, but it includes the following extraordinary statement:

“Continuously forested areas are defined as areas where trees have reached, or can reach, at least heights of five metres, making up a crown cover of more than 30 percent. They would normally include natural forest, forest plantations and other tree plantations such as palm oil. . . . This means, for example, that a change from forest to oil palm plantation would not per se constitute a breach of the criteria.”

Rainforest Rescue and Friends of the Earth Europe are campaigning against this attempt to reclassify oil palm plantations as forests.

Indonesia is the world’s biggest producer of palm oil, with oil palm plantations covering an area of 7 million hectares. Currently these plantations are classified as an agricultural crop. But earlier this week, the head of research and development at the Forestry Ministry, Tachrir Fathoni, explained to the Jakarta Post that Indonesia wants to re-classify this area of monoculture as forest. “It is to anticipate the implementation of the REDD scheme,” he said.

Fathoni argued that Malaysia already includes oil palm plantations in its forest sector. “By doing so,” he said, “Malaysia can reap financial incentives from the UNFCCC [from] carbon trade.” Financial incentives, that is, to clear forests and replace them with oil palm monocultures. Obviously, providing carbon credits for oil palm plantations is not quite what most people have in mind when they think about REDD. Equally obviously, the UN needs to sort out its definition of forests in order to exclude industrial tree plantations.

A common “solution” put forward to prevent the conversion of forests to plantations is to make the forest worth more standing because of the carbon stored in it than the palm oil would be worth from the plantation that replaced the forest.

It sounds simple, but recent research by Martin Persson and Christian Azar at the Chalmers University of Technology in Göteborg, Sweden indicates that a price on carbon may not be enough:

“We estimate that deforesting for palm oil bioenergy production is likely to remain highly profitable, even in the fact of a price on the carbon emissions from forest clearing.” []

An important part of their findings is that increasing the price of carbon will not solve the problem. The European Commission’s Science for Environmental Policy summarises their argument as follows:

“Landowners anticipate gains in the future because they expect carbon prices to rise over time. This means that landowners can pay a relatively low price for carbon emissions from deforestation now and profit from a greater willingness to pay for bioenergy in the future as climate policy is strengthened and carbon and energy prices rise. As a consequence, the value of land will also rise. A higher carbon price will not only increase the cost of forest clearing but also the revenues from doing so.”

Persson and Azar are not arguing that tropical deforestation should be kept out of future international climate regimes. “That would only make matters worse,” they write. But their research has major implications for REDD, particular given the direction that REDD is currently heading – trading the carbon stored in forests and hoping that the magic of the markets will keep the profits from carbon trading higher than the profits from palm oil trading.

Scrappage scheme ‘fails to cut pollution’

Scrappage scheme ‘fails to cut pollution’

Trading in old bangers for new cars has been popular

Dan Trent and Laura Curtis

The scrappage scheme may save the car industry, but it won’t save the planet. New research shows that while car sales have leapt, as people trade in older vehicles for new ones, thanks to a £2,000 government incentive, the environmental impact of the scheme has been … nil or even negative.

Government figures suggest that the scheme reduces CO2 emissions: older cars scrapped in the scheme burnt an average of 233.6 gallons of petrol each year, compared with the average new car’s 172.4. That’s a decrease of about 26%, or just over 61 gallons of fuel per year.

But critics argue that the figure fails to take into account the energy used to build a new car in the first place. Research by the US Department of Energy calculates that the average new car sold in 2009 required the energy equivalent of 1,540 gallons of petrol to manufacture. The figure dwarfs the fuel savings of 61.2 gallons per year and means that it will take 25 years before the new car repays its “fuel debt”.

The true amount of energy used is likely to be higher still. The department’s figures refer to energy used to make all the parts of a car, such as rubber, fluids, glass, metal and battery as well as the energy required to mine and move those parts.

//

It does not take into account the energy used in scrapping older cars. Nor does it take into account the cost of transporting the new car from the point of manufacture to the point of sale. For example, the carbon footprint of the 60,960 fuel-efficient cars sold under the scrappage scheme by the South Korean brands Hyundai and Kia was swelled by the fact that most arrived here on bulk carriers. Merchant shipping accounted for 870m tonnes of global CO2 emissions last year, according to the UN’s International Maritime Organisation.

The findings have caused consternation among green campaigners, many of whom initially welcomed the scrappage scheme as a way of reducing emissions by encouraging drivers to opt for newer, more fuel-efficient cars.

Friends of the Earth says it questions whether the scheme is really as green as painted and is lobbying the government to focus on high-polluting older cars, rather than any car that is more than 10 years old. “A fundamental aim of the scheme should have been to encourage motorists to scrap gas guzzlers and replace them with cleaner cars,” said a spokesman.

The economic success of the scheme, however, is unarguable: car sales rose 30% last month and the government has extended it to the end of March.

Associated Press spins more Climategate lies

Associated Press spins more Climategate lies

by John O’Sullivan on February 20, 2010

8 comments

Over at tree-hugging apologist mouthpiece, Media Matters they’re getting their panties in a bunch over a Fox News story. It seems Fox was biased for a “stale retread” over Climategate data rapist, Professor Phil Jones’ shocking admission that there’s been no statistically significant global warming for 15 years. How outrageous of Fox, I hear you scoff. But try and see it from Media Matters’ point of view–little green journos all now go into apoplectic spasm at every mention of unpleasant and unarguable climate facts.

So, thanks to the prompting by Media Manglers, I’ll now prove that the Associated Press (AP) is complicit in perpetrating further Climategate hype and lies. Thereby, our readers may judge for themselves how deeply the green-loving press has sunk themselves into the greatest scandal in science.

First, keep in mind that Fox News is the only American TV news broadcaster that has reported the Climategate story from Day One. Media Matters tries to spin the lie that the AP has been reporting on this epoch-changing event in a ‘just-the-facts fashion.’ But, as we shall see, in AP’s case ‘just the facts’ means doling out hype and lies supportive of the global warming hysteria.

Astonishingly, it is the leaked Climategate emails themselves that expose the complicitness of the Associated Press in the Climategate scandal. Keen eyes at that excellent skeptic blog, Watts Up With That (WUWT), first uncovered the facts exposing media conspiracy in reporting Climategate. Blogger, Anthony Watts, found that AP had a ‘man on the inside’ of information from the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit three months before the leaked emails surfaced.

It is those leaked emails that expose AP reporter, Seth Borenstein as a Climategate collaborator. So it came as no surprise to bloggers when AP ran the following in a ‘just-the-facts fashion’ on December 12, 2009 after the Climategate story broke:

“E-mails stolen from climate scientists show they stonewalled skeptics and discussed hiding data — but the messages don’t support claims that the science of global warming was faked, according to an exhaustive review by The Associated Press.” source

And whom did AP put in charge of their “exhaustive review”? Yes, you guessed it, Seth Borenstein.

Borenstein has long been known among climate commentators as an avid green sympathiser. As a sample of Borenstein’s affiliations look no further than the leaked email dated Jul 23, 2009 when Seth ‘just-the-facts’ Borenstein emailed his Climategate chums, Kevin Trenberth, Gavin Schmidt and Michael ‘Hockey Stick’ Mann, three months before Climategate:

“It’s Seth again. Attached is a paper in JGR today that
Marc Morano is hyping wildly. It’s in a legit journal. Whatchya think?
Seth
Seth Borenstein, Associated Press Science Writer
sborenstein@xxxxxxxxx.xxx”

Michael Mann’s reply:

“hi Seth, you always seem to catch me at airports. only got a
few minutes. took a cursory look at the paper, and it has all
the worry signs of extremely bad science and scholarship.”

Thus speaketh Michael ‘bad science’ Mann always available for a buddy like Seth. Whatchya think of that? To quantify how far AP journalism has fallen off it’s integrity perch just take a look here at their own code of conduct

Laughably, AP claims that:

“we avoid behavior or activities that create a conflict of interest and compromise our ability to report the news fairly and accurately, uninfluenced by any person or action.”

So if readers are troubled by AP’s “exhaustive review” you can phone or write and ask in a just-the-facts fashion at the following address:

The Associated Press, 1100 13th St. NW, Suite 700,
Washington, DC

IPCC biofuel blending – science ignored, or made up?

IPCC biofuel blending – science ignored, or made up?

by Graham on February 21, 2010

The list of unsupported and unscientific claims in the IPCC Climate Change Report 2007 grows ever longer.

Five senior scientists have written to the head of IPCC, Dr R K Pachauri, to highlight “serious and dangerous deficiencies” in the notes on biofuels in the recently released IPCC AR4 Mitigation book [1]. The IPCC Synthesis Report is expected to be approved by national delegations this month.

They highlight that no proof has been given, even when requested from the relevant Author, of the claim in the SPM (Summary for Policy Makers) that biofuel blending, as a policy, measure or instrument, had been “environmentally effective…in at least a number of national cases.”

They are now calling for the full basis for this claim in the SPM to be revealed, or for the claim to be withdrawn.

If they knew then what we know now, they wouldn’t have bothered.

This is how it appeared:
