News for 21 June 2012

Global warming. Why is there a controversy and who makes money from denying that humans have a role in Global warming/climate change? Could it be the multinational corporations and folks who like to hide their money in off shore accounts? I’m wondering how the religious right got pulled into this “man made” denial business? Follow the money is one of the rules when reading mysteries. There is a money empathy gap — and we certainly saw the gap in the words and actions from Presidential hopeful and his also born to wealth wife.

The Colorado Wildfires are linked to Global warming. In the spring of 2012 we drove through Montana and saw acres and acres of dead and dying  evergreen trees. The trees stick out like a sore thumb because they are are red/orange rather than the healthy green they should be. This year we drove through western Colorado, Wyoming and Montana and again saw the dead trees. The article at the link explains just how the beetles manage to kill the trees — the tree must die for the larva to emerge as beetles from the interior of the trees. Lack of rain and the fuel from all the dead trees are two of the major reasons why the wild fires are so bad this year. It is so sad that rather than working together — both parties are being used by corporate interests to attack each other. Meanwhile a huge chunk of the US is burning or has the potential to burn. So sad.

Here’s a list of the 10 dumbest things ever said about global warming

Why cops don’t believe rape victims and how brain science can solve the problem. Could be that most cops are males and there is the brotherhood of rape enablers in the rape culture of the USA?

New statistics violence against women world wide — 1/3 of all women world wide have experienced domestic violence. 

Put together by the WHO in partnership with the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and the South African Medical Research Council, the report says 35 percent of women around the world are victims of sexual or physical violence, and that assault at the hands of an intimate partner is by far the most common form of such violence. In fact, a whopping 30 percent of women globally were found to be domestic violence victims.

Rolling Stone journalist Michael Hastings died by hitting a tree with his car going 100 mph. When I first heard the new of this investigative journalist’s death — I  though oh . . . . L.A. has really horrible freeways. Well it turns out that this was one of those single car accidents in a place where this doesn’t happen. 100 mph on one of the desert roads with wide open spaces and where Hastings car hit the tree was on a remote desert road .

More death too many questions about this death — we have been lied to far too often so that even the truth becomes a lie when the news comes from proven liars. The 100 mph could have been a malfunctioning computer error in the car — after it happened to me when I rented a Toyota I wonder how many other automatic transmissions have a similar fatal flaw.

If this was an isolated incident then there wouldn’t be so many questions swirling about Hastings’ death. However, he’s certainly not the first individual to go up against the military-industrial complex and wind up in a coffin.

Of course the 0bama administration wouldn’t use the US Constitution for toilet paper and spy on Journalist would it? We know that is exactly what happened by the 0bama administration. The boys and girls of the 0bama gang are going after whistle blowers and if that means spying and intimidating and sending messages to journalists — then that is what they will do. The military Industrial complex needs to be protected at all cost and their tool 0bama was hired to do exactly what he is doing. The constitution be damned.

Most interesting links will follow as I wonder the Internet’s strange twists and turns.

1984 is no longer a work of fiction — is it?
