Former Obama Official: Bureaucrats Manipulate Climate Stats To Influence Policy
Post Date: 2017-04-27 11:59:50 by Tooconservative
A former member of the Obama administration claims Washington D.C. often uses misleading news releases about climate data to influence public opinion. Former Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin told The Wall Street Journal Monday that bureaucrats within former President Barack Obamas administration spun scientific data to manipulate public opinion. What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, Id say, misleading, sometimes just wrong, Koonin said, referring to elements within the Obama administration he said were responsible for manipulating climate data. He pointed to a National Climate Assessment ...
Cryogenically frozen brains will be 'woken up' and transplanted in donor bodies within three years, says surgeon
Post Date: 2017-04-27 07:23:27 by cranky
People who have had their brains cryogenically frozen could be 'woken up' within three years, a pioneering Italian surgeon has claimed. Professor Sergio Canavero, Director of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group, is aiming to carry out the first human head transplant within 10 months and then wants to begin trials on brain transplants. If the procedures are successful, he believes that frozen brains could be thawed and inserted into a donor body. Hundreds of people who are dying or paralysed have had their bodies or brains cryogenically preserved in the hope that medical science will be able to bring them back to life and cure their conditions. Although many experts are ...
Toyota Rolls Out Hydrogen Semi Ahead Of Tesla's Electric Truck
Post Date: 2017-04-20 04:00:45 by Operation 40
Toyota's "Project Portal" is the first zero-emission, hydrogen fuel cell semi truck, which goes into operation at the Port of Los Angeles later this year. A battle for the future of clean trucks is breaking out. A week after Elon Musk said an electric Tesla semi is coming, Toyota sped ahead of him in its own exhaust-free truck: a hydrogen-powered 18-wheeler created to haul cargo at the Port of Los Angeles. The carmakers truck, dubbed Project Portal," fulfills a promise Toyota made in November to scale up the fuel cell system used in its Mirai sedan for a semi as part of a feasibility study. The Class 8 truck Toyota created using a Kenworth chassis, ...
Baltimore's solar-powered water wheel has now removed 1.1 million lbs of rubbish from the river
Post Date: 2017-04-19 11:05:40 by Willie Green
This is "Mr.Trash Wheel" a water wheel in Baltimore that removes rubbish from the river. The water wheel is powered by the river's current, which lifts rubbish and debris from the water and deposits it into a dumpster. The rubbish is then sent to be incinerated, which generates power for some homes in Maryland. When there isn't enough water current, there is a solar panel attached to the water wheel to provide additional power. Mr.Trash has been in use since 2014, removing over 1 million lbs of rubbish from Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Some of that rubbish includes 8.9 million cigarette butts and half a million polystyrene ...

That means homes in the driest parts of the world could soon have a solar-powered appliance capable of delivering all the water they need, offering relief to billions of people.The new water harvester is made of metal organic framework crystals pressed into a thin sheet of copper metal and placed ...
Astronomers capture image of elusive force that connects the universe
Post Date: 2017-04-13 16:58:47 by cranky
In this false color map, the white regions depict galaxies, while the red regions depict the presence of the dark matter bridge. For the first time ever, astronomers have an image of the bridge that ties galaxies together. Captured by researchers at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, the composite image is proof that dark matter acts as a giant intergalactic web that connects galaxies throughout space and time. Their findings were published in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. Dark matter is an invisible force that doesnt emit or reflect light, and is only detectable through gravity. It makes up around 27 percent of the ...
Humans can now control turtles with their minds
Post Date: 2017-04-12 20:17:12 by cranky
It sounds like something Dr. Evil from Austin Powers might have come up with. But unlike sharks with laser beams attached to their heads, mindcontrolled turtles are now a reality. Thats right, researchers in Korea have figured out a way to control how turtles move with human thought. The new technology uses the turtles natural flight or fight response to tell it which direction to swim. The system, created by researchers from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), combines two technologies opposite to one another: braintocomputer interfaces (BCIs), which allow humans to control machines via thought and computerto ...
Dodge unveils one-seat 840-horsepower muscle car
Post Date: 2017-04-12 09:17:13 by cranky
The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is not a car for normal people. For starters, it comes standard with only one seat. Because passenger seats, and passengers, weigh too much and would slow it down. Your friends aren't worth that. Then there's the engine. The Demon's 840-horsepower 6.2-liter supercharged V8 is the most powerful V8 engine ever put into a regular production car. That makes the Demon the most powerful factory-produced muscle car...ever. That record had previously been held by the 707-horsepower Dodge Challenger Hellcat which seems like a house cat compared to the Demon, a car just unveiled ahead of the New York International Auto Show. The Demon has already ...
Global warming fail: Study finds melting sea ice is actually helping Arctic animals
Post Date: 2017-04-03 12:00:03 by Tooconservative
Proponents of the theory humans are primarily responsible for rising global temperatures long claimed wildlife are harmed significantly by global warming, and that unless mankind stops producing significant amounts of carbon-dioxide emissions, the worlds animals will not be able to thrive. While rising temperatures have certainly put a strain on species in some parts of the world, a new study by researchers at the University of Southern Denmark suggests animals in the Arctic region are thriving as because of higher global temperatures. According to a press release touting the studys new findings, warmer conditions have produced a larger number of life-sustaining melt ...

Marijuana DOES cause schizophrenia and triggers heart attacks, experts say in landmark study that slams most of the drug's medical benefits as 'unproven'
Post Date: 2017-01-12 20:52:32 by misterwhite
Marijuana does raise the risk of getting schizophrenia and triggers heart attacks, according to the most significant study on the drug's effects to date. A federal advisory panel admitted cannabis can almost certainly ease chronic pain, and might help some people sleep. But it dismisses most of the drug's other supposedly 'medical benefits' as unproven. Crucially, the researchers concluded there is not enough research to say whether marijuana effectively treats epilepsy - one of the most widely-recognized reasons for cannabis prescriptions. The report also casts doubt on using cannabis to treat cancers, irritable bowel syndrome, or certain symptoms of Parkinson's ...
Science has discovered a new human organ
Post Date: 2017-01-04 18:57:10 by cranky
Scientists have discovered a new human organ. The mesentery a fold of the peritoneum that connects the intestine to the abdomen was once thought to be made up of multiple separate parts. Research published in The Lancet Gastroenterology & Hepatology journal in November reveals that the section of the digestive membrane is actually one continuous organ. In the paper, which has been peer reviewed and assessed, we are now saying we have an organ in the body which hasnt been acknowledged as such to date, researcher J. Calvin Coffey, from the University Hospital Limerick in Ireland, said in a release. The official function of the organ is not yet known, but ...

Secrecy and Mysteries Challenge the Official History of Antarctica
Post Date: 2016-12-27 10:10:22 by Deckard
by Jordan Sather In late 1946, Admiral Richard E. Byrd led troops from the U.S., Britain and Australia on a mission to Antarctica called Operation Highjump. This mission involved 4700 soldiers, 13 ships, and 33 aircraft in what was officially called a research expedition. The part of the story that is seldom told outside of official circles is what Byrd encountered there. While conventional knowledge of World War II states that Germany was defeated in Europe, which is true, little is often said about the Nazi escape South to their bases in Antarctica. While the Allied powers won World War II on the ground in Europe due to their industrial might, the Nazis had far ...
Another Brick In The Wall – Modern Education And The System Of Deception
Post Date: 2016-12-18 14:13:23 by Deckard
By Paul A. Philips Like many things the food industry, the medical-pharmaceutical establishment, the mainstream media the hidden corporate/bankers who control our governments have also standardized the education system through funding. Many years ago in the USA, for example, much money was poured into education by the Rockefeller-created National Education Association, with the help of the Carnegie Foundation and later on the Ford Foundation. The result of the efforts of such organizations can be seen worldwide today in the real purpose of the education system which is to teach children and young people: 1) Reward comes from accurate memory recall from heavy ...

Scott and Shackleton logbooks prove Antarctic sea ice is not shrinking 100 years after expeditions
Post Date: 2016-11-24 17:54:24 by cranky
The Endurance, trapped in sea ice Antarctic sea ice had barely changed from where it was 100 years ago, scientists have discovered, after poring over the logbooks of great polar explorers such as Robert Falcon Scott and Ernest Shackleton. Experts were concerned that ice at the South Pole had declined significantly since the 1950s, which they feared was driven by man-made climate change. But new analysis suggests that conditions are now virtually identical to when the Terra Nova and Endurance sailed to the continent in the early 1900s, indicating that declines are part of a natural cycle and not the result of global warming. Scott's ship the Terra Nova It also explains why sea ice ...

Subliminal Messaging and Predictive Programming: How They Work and Why Some People Are Immune
Post Date: 2016-10-10 11:24:48 by Deckard
Today, just for fun, were going to go down the rabbit hole of how entertainment and the media manipulate people. Some of this is sheer speculation, some if it is provable fact, and all of it requires that you don your full array of tinfoil. If you want to go even deeper, this book will blow your mind. This has been going on for decades. These techniques are used to reduce resistance to upcoming tyranny, to change opinions of large groups of people and let them think it was their own idea, and to subtly program the brains of the masses while they think theyre just enjoying some entertainment. The only good news in this article is that some of us are less ...

There is a simple explanation as to what happened. It was probably a repeat of one of the glitches that has previously occurred on the EAS, the incident was not caused by hacking and neither is this a new grand conspiracy theory. This EAS broadcast was caused by a glitch similar to one described below. Until the bugs are worked out of the EAS
.these type glitches will probably happen again. Could you, would you on a train? There is nothing mystic about that phase and there is nothing ominous as to the meaning. It is simply a phrase from the lyrics of a song by Dr. Seuss titled: Green Eggs And Ham. [
