Robobees, What’s Next By Brian Simpson

     Sure, technology will solve every problem, because, well, humans don’t have original sin (and even if they did technology, especially IT would solve that one). Don’t you believe one word of it. With bee populations continuing to collapse from Colony collapse disorder, scientists have done what scientists do best, not attempt to solve the root cause of the problem, but give a high tech duct tape solution:

  https://www.mirror.co.uk/science/robot-bees-could-deployed-natural-12054328

“Fleets of robobees could now be deployed if natural populations continue to collapse. A leading expert told the world’s biggest science conference the technology is now here to programme bee-sized drones to pollinate crops. Japanese scientists have developed a remotely controlled drone the size of a dragonfly which was able to pollinate lilies. US scientists have also joined the technology race developing a robobee about half the size and able to flat 120 times a second. Prof Shashi Shekhar is one of the world’s leading experts in state-of-the-art mapping and said robotic swarms could be the answer to catastrophic food shortages.”

Climate Change is Sexist! By Mrs Vera West

     Get yourself a strong cuppa tea or coffee or even both, take a sip and consider that according to Hillary Clinton, climate change is itself sexist:
  http://libtards.news/2018-02-18-hillary-clinton-climate-change-is-sexist-irrational-nonsense.html 

“Failed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton recently spoke to a group of college students at Georgetown University as part of a panel on “Women & Human Rights.” At one point during the event, a student raised her hand and suggested that weather was somehow sexist. Of course, Hillary Clinton was quick to agree. “I would say that particularly for women, you’re absolutely right, they will bear the brunt of looking for the food, looking for the firewood, looking for the place to migrate to when all of the grass is finally gone as the desertification moves south and you have to keep moving your livestock for your crops are no longer growing, they’re burning up in the intense heat that we’re now seeing reported across North Africa, into the Middle East, and into India,” Clinton said.”

Who’s Afraid of Planet X? By Brian Simpson

     There is a lot out there in the wilderness of the internet on Nibiru or Planet X:

  http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/yellowstone-alert-200-earthquakes-in-10-days-as-ring-of-fire-awakens_02202018 

     This planet will, these sites say, cause cosmic disaster. The problem is, that any large planet close to the Earth can be detected by either telescopes, or, if it is hiding peek-a-boo behind another close planet, detected by gravitational effects. However there may be a Neptune-sized planet out beyond Pluto, but there is no empirical evidence of this, as yet.

Letter to the Editor - Tomorrow’s Grim, Global, Green Dictatorship

     Greens hate individual freedom and private property. They dream of a centralised unelected global government, financed by taxes on developed nations, and controlled by all the tentacles of the UN.

     No longer is real pollution of our environment the main Green concern. The key slogan of the Green religion is “sustainable development”, with them defining what is sustainable.

Those Spying Lizards By James Reed

     I thought that this one was false news, but apparently not.
  http://www.breitbart.com/jerusalem/2018/02/13/iran-accuses-west-using-reptiles-lizards-nuclear-spies/ 

“Western spies use lizards and assorted small reptiles to “attract atomic waves” and spy on Iran’s nuclear program, the former chief-of-staff of Iran’s armed forces has claimed. Hassan Firuzabadi, senior military adviser to supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, made the revelation as he responded to questions from local media on the recent arrest of environmentalists, Ouest France reports. It is the latest in a long line of claims made in the troubled Middle East that include allegations western forces have also used an eagle, a dolphin, a vulture, and Mossad-inspired shark attacks on various Islamic foes – with varying degrees of success.”

Ghoulish Waves for the Future By Peter West

     Surfing through Natural news.com, I followed a common thread of articles about our dystopic future, many hard to believe. To begin, https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-02-13-eco-friendly-company-ingenious-way-to-dispose-of-the-entire-population.html

     A Canadian company which sought to have an “eco-friendly” approach to disposal of human remains, used the process of alkaline hydrolysis to dissolve bodies. The only problem was that the remains ended up in the sewage system, going out to sea. Human bodies today are rather toxic, with lots of heavy metals, so this was not fair on the fish. Bodies that are not liquefied may end up being part of a growing global market for such parts:

Letter to The Editor - Planned Power Chaos

To ON TARGET          Seven Australian governments have made a mis-planned mess of Australia’s electricity industry. The federal government now plans to add more toxins to the mess – “five-year targets to cut emissions.”

     There was one big lesson from the 20th Century – coercive central planning always fails - it constantly destroys economic assets and human freedom. Just look at the human and economic costs of the grand plans of Stalin’s Russia, Hitler’s Germany, Mao’s China, Castro’s Cuba and Pol Pot’s Cambodia. Or compare East and West Germany when the Berlin Wall came down or North and South Korea now.

Letter to The Editor - Junk all Junkets

     The climate catastrophists in the UN and Australia’s Climate Council claim that man-made global warming will hurt tourism. However tourists in planes, ships, buses, trains and cars all contribute mightily to man-made CO2.If the catastrophists believed their own scare-stories they would advocate bans on all government promotion and advertising of tourism expos and games, abandon the multitude of tax-funded climate conferences in exotic locations, and veto all government-funded “study tours” by academics, politicians and bureaucrats.

Who Will Survive and Who Will Need to Learn Fast By John Steele

     So, the majority of Millennials do not know how to boil a light bulb or change an egg…wait, senile me, I got that wrong, change a light bulb and boil an egg:
  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-4338132/Milennials-don-t-know-change-light-bulb.html

     The British survey showed that most, quite capable in the use of IT equipment, failed at practical domestic tasks. The survey did not venture outside of the comfortable domestic sphere, but if one considered basic survival skills previous surveys indicate that Millennials lack these skills too:

Homesteading 101: Prepping and Beyond By John Steele

     In articles to come I will be dealing with the Plan C, or is it Plan D (?), strategy of prepping for coming disasters, collapses or just the Spenglerian processes of social entropy that have taken down all previous civilisations. I know that the great majority of us expect that the world which we see today, and enjoy with its technological creature comforts will continue into the future, forever. Yet, it may not, and breakdown in some places of the world has been rapid, and there is even argument that the fall of Rome was quicker than most scholars think, due to migration and barbarian invasions, rather than just some particular economic libertarian reason like more taxes:

  http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/selco-the-brutal-truth-about-violence-when-the-shtf_02092018

     The strategy of many has been to go “off grid,” and to homestead, trying to be a self-reliant, if not self-sufficient as possible. The American sites celebrate this, but often are too preoccupied with firearms questions to produce in depth discussions of just how hard it is to do this, even to grow one’s own food. I have sorted through a long list of internet sites to now cite some realistic appreciations of these difficulties:

Will China Destroy the Space-time Continuum? By Brian Simpson

     I think that we all should be worried if China can make a laser strong enough to tear apart the space-time continuum:
  http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/chinas-building-a-laser-that-could-tear-space-apart_02012018 

“The Chinese are building a laser that is 10 trillion times more intense than the sun and could rip apart space. Physicists say that this laser could be operational as early as 2023. Physicist Ruxin Li and colleagues are breaking records with the most powerful pulses of light the world has ever seen. At the heart of their laser, called the Shanghai Superintense Ultrafast Laser Facility (SULF), is a single cylinder of titanium-doped sapphire about the width of a Frisbee. After kindling the light in the crystal and shunting it through a system of lenses and mirrors, the SULF distills it into pulses of mind-boggling power. The end goal is to create a laser so powerful it can produce 100-petawatt laser pulses or 100 million billion watts.

Flipping Over the Poles By John Steele

     I might flip my eggs and bacon over the campfire out here in the Victorian scrub, but while I am doing this, something geophysically more dramatic could occur; a polar shift:

“Scientists from the University of Colorado in Boulder are sounding the alarm that the Earth’s magnetic poles are showing signs of reversing.  Although the pole reversal, in and of itself, isn’t unprecedented, the solar winds that would take out the power grid and make parts of the globe uninhabitable could cause widespread disasters. The Earth has a fierce molten core that generates a magnetic field capable of defending our planet against devastating solar winds.

Mad Max in South Africa By John Steele

     More bad news for Cape Town, which runs out of water in a mere 90 days:
  https://www.forbes.com/sites/trevornace/2018/01/18/mad-max-scenario-cape-town-run-out-water-90-days/#4ba8deaa5414

“Cape Town, South Africa is in crisis mode right out of a Mad Max movie. Given current water consumption, the city has approximately 90 days until it runs out of water. The city recently pushed forward what they call Day Zero, where the city will be forced to shut off water supplies to all but essential consumers, such as hospitals. This would mark the first major city in the world to run out of water, a result of a prolonged 3-year drought. The city has mandated that every household limit their water consumption to 23 gallons per person per day. However, only 54% of households are meeting that target.

The Green Empress has No Clothes By Viv Forbes

     During December 2017, Germany’s millions of solar panels received just 10 hours of sunshine; and when solar energy did filter through the clouds, most of the panels were covered in snow. Even committed Green Disciples with a huge Tesla battery in their garage soon found that their battery was flat and there was no solar energy to re-charge it. The lights, heaters, trains, TV and phones ran on German coal power, French nuclear power, Russian gas, Scandinavian hydro, plus unpredictable surges of electricity from those few wind turbines that were not iced up, locked down in a gale, or becalmed.

     Germany has long supported two incompatible ideas – engineering excellence and green totalitarianism. Angela Merkel’s support of climate alarmism while preaching energy efficiency continues this discordant tradition.
But King Winter has exposed the weak underbelly of Germany’s energy policy. Empress Merkel now faces a hostile political climate with no clothes.

Aliens at the Airport? By Brian Simpson

     I am not a UFO-er, but I did find the 2006 Chicago International airport incident interesting:
“At approximately 16:15 CST on Tuesday, November 7, 2006, federal authorities at Chicago O’Hare International Airport received a report that a group of twelve airport employees were witnessing a metallic, saucer-shaped craft hovering over Gate C-17.

     The object was first spotted by a ramp employee who was pushing back United Airlines Flight 446, which was departing Chicago for Charlotte, North Carolina. The employee apprised Flight 446’s crew of the object above their aircraft. It is believed that both the pilot and co-pilot also witnessed the object. Several independent witnesses outside of the airport also saw the object. One described a “blatant” disc-shaped craft hovering over the airport which was “obviously not clouds.” According to this witness, nearby observers gasped as the object shot through the clouds at high velocity, leaving a clear blue hole in the cloud layer.[1] The hole reportedly seemed to close itself shortly afterward.

More Doomsday Weapons By Charles Taylor

     The Neo Con artists and globalists who are so desperate to start a war with Russia, maybe because the “Christian” wing thinks that this will bring on a return of Christ, as in the 1970s book, The Late Great Planet Earth, need to seriously read this:
  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-01-18/pentagon-document-confirms-existence-russian-doomsday-torpedo

“A leaked copy of the Pentagon’s Nuclear Posture Review states that Russia is developing a “new intercontinental, nuclear-armed undersea autonomous torpedo.” The existence of the weapon, known as Kanyon to the Pentagon and “Ocean Multipurpose System Status-6” to Russia, was first leaked by Russian television in November 2015. A test involving the Sarov-class submarine mothership was leaked in December 2016. The Nuclear Posture Review report, dated January 2018, lists the weapon as part of Russia’s underwater nuclear arsenal….

Trick Question: What is the Connection Between Bitcoin and Porn? By John Steele

     Yeah, this is a John Steele topic, for sure. The answer to the question is that according to the environmentalist priesthood, is that both of these things are causing global warming. Take time to scratch your head on that one:
  http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/12/17/delingpole-bitcoin-and-porn-cause-global-warming-environmentalists-warn/
  https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2017/12/the-environmental-cost-of-internet-porn/548210/?utm_source=feed

     There are so many billions of porn viewings, that any savings by computer dematerialisation has gone, well up in a puff of smoke.
Bitcoin mining uses up even more energy than porn; if Bitcoin was a country it would rank 61st in terms of energy consumption, and is set to gobble up even more electricity. I heard one Greenie on the radio say something along the lines that given mining trends, Bitcoin would chew up all of the world’s electricity in a few years. sheer nonsense, of course.

The Death of Bees By Brian Simpson

     As reported at:
http://collapse.news/2018-01-09-double-threat-may-wipe-out-the-honey-bee-scientists-warn-pesticides-killing-them-off.html
https://naturalpedia.com/clothianidin-toxicity-side-effects-diseases-and-environmental-impacts.html
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5195389/Pesticides-food-shortages-killing-honey-bee.html
the honey bee is facing extinction:

“For many years now, scientists have been warning us of the decreasing honey bee population. A new research reveals that honey bees could soon go extinct due to the increased uses of chemical pesticides and the severely low amount of food supplies for these poor creatures. A University of California, San Diego study shows that chemical pesticides, as well as a lack of food for honey bees, are threatening their already low population.
Clothianidin and thiamethoxam are two of the neonicotinoid pesticides that are killing off these vital insects. Researchers found that these chemicals, combined with low nutrition, highly impact the life span of honey bees, and severely increased the number of bee deaths by 50 percent. The effect of both these lethal factors are the same as giving poison to a person suffering from malnutrition – both are lethal individually, but together accelerate mortality. The chemicals as mentioned above affect honey bees by decreasing their hemolymph (bee blood) sugar levels and cause the insect to lose energy.”
