EDIT: There are few who care about the environment, there also hopes to be few who profit from it. I was thinking about quoting the source of the article below but then I felt I would get immediately disqualified because of it. But there’s one thing that stands out in all of this for me. You can Google it if you want. Here’s my take: Oil is unpopular, it’s limited, it’s a pollutant; yet, it fuels commerce, produce, and transports medicines, workers, and supplies over large distances. No one wants to waste the time and energy (pun intended) to fund and research cheap alternative fuel sources. Why would big oil want that? It would put them out of business. Why are the environmentalist organizations not keen on suggesting cheap alternative energy? Because they don’t want fuels to go away just yet either! So let’s make up “carbon credits” and just let the rich countries get “taxed” so they can continue burning fuels and let the underdeveloped countries have a chance to use that money. Most importantly, let”s use the UN to rally these countries together and let us handle the cashflow! What a racket! But then again, it is our fault for not being responsible enough on our own to be better stewards of what’s been given to us. Instead, we’re gonna let man’s “worst enemy to the planet” be judge, jury, and sadly, the executioner.

The Multibillion Dollar Carbon Trading System The carbon trading system is a multibillion money-making bonanza for the financial establishment. The stakes are extremely high and the various lobby groups on behalf of Wall Street have already positioned themselves.

According to a recent report, “the carbon market could become double the size of the vast oil market, according to the new breed of City players who trade greenhouse gas emissions through the EU’s emissions trading scheme.

The speed of that growth will depend on whether the Copenhagen summit gives a go-ahead for a low-carbon economy, but Ager says whatever happens schemes such as the ETS will expand around the globe.” (Terry Macalister, Carbon trading could be worth twice that of oil in next decade, The Guardian, 28 November 2009)

The large financial conglomerates, involved in derivative trade, including JP Morgan Chase, Bank America Merrill Lynch, Barclay’s, Citi Bank, Nomura, Société Générale, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs are actively involved in carbon trading.( FACTBOX: Investment banks in carbon trading | Reuters, 14 September 2009)

The legitimacy of the carbon trading system rests on the legitimacy of the Global Warming Consensus, which views CO2 emissions as the single threat to the environment. And for Wall Street the carbon trading system is a convenient and secure money-making safety-net, allowing for the transfer of billions of dollars into the pockets of a handful of conglomerates.

“Every major financial house in New York and London has set up carbon trading operations. Very big numbers are dancing in their heads, and they need them to replace the “wealth” that evaporated in the housing bust. Louis Redshaw, head of environmental markets at Barclays Capital, told the New York Times, “Carbon will be the world’s biggest market over all.” Barclays thinks the current $60 billion carbon market could grow to $1 trillion within a decade. Four years ago Redshaw, a former electricity trader, couldn’t get anyone to talk to him about carbon.” (Mark Braly, The Multibillion Dollar Carbon Trading, RenewableEnergyWorld.com, 5 March 2008)

Junk DNA Mechanism That Prevents Two Species From Reproducing Discovered

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/10/091026220018.htm

ScienceDaily (2009-10-27) — Researchers have discovered a genetic mechanism in fruit flies that prevents two closely related species from reproducing, a finding that offers clues to how species evolve.

 

(Edit: Or how they stop evolving and thus create a new type of species altogether. Someone get me a copy of On The Origin of Species, please…) Have you ever seen a bully knock over some kids play blocks when you were young? Just when we believed that the bully had no equal, here comes someone bigger reminding them that they need to play fair with each other. Will this article ever make it to the mainstream. Sorry. Only those who evolved from the gooey mass (media) will come to this realization. Where’s my eraser?…

Keep in mind, folks, that there is purpose for everything. To believe that you were born to exist only reduces your talent by those who don’t want you to succeed. Do you allow that to be said of you or do you agree with that of others you feel are inferior to you? Are there ants in the colony that just stand around and do nothing? Do worms just live in the ground because they couldn’t grow wings? Show me something that has no purpose and I’ll show you an inability to look deeper into the mysteries of life.

This isn’t news to me but in case you just came crawling out from under your latest Gossip Girl, the buzz is finally spreading further out. Talk about your perfect storm. What’s the one thing that makes the world go around? And if we grab them by the purse strings, we’ll get what we want!

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) — Fuel prices have grounded an unexpected frequent-flyer: Diddy.

Sean “Diddy” Combs complained about the “… too high” price of gas and pleaded for free oil from his “Saudi Arabia brothers and sisters” in a YouTube video posted Wednesday.

The hip-hop mogul said he is now flying on commercial airlines instead of in private jets, which Combs said had previously cost him $200,000 and up for a roundtrip between New York and Los Angeles.

Yo! This aint goin down like this!

Yo! This ain't goin' down like this!

“I’m actually flying commercial,” Diddy said before walking onto an airplane, sitting in a first-class seat and flashing his boarding pass to the camera. “That’s how high gas prices are. I’m at the gate right now. This is really happening, proof gas prices are too high. Tell whoever the next president is we need to bring gas prices down.”

Well here’s a case of something that was buried, cut, brought up, reported then quickly gets cut, buried, and Britney is brought up instead.

Thankfully, the facts are laid out on the table in this summarization of events. As of Feb 8, the problem’s been reported as fixed but could this happen again?

If you look at the Internet Submarine Cable Map of 2008, you can see there are bottlenecks. CNN reports that the location of fiber that comes ashore are a secret known to just a trusted few. It’s too easy to blame the US Gov’t in all of this, but it’s a cop out. Besides, it would be ignorant to assume that ONLY bad people are occupying that series of tubes.
