(Natural News) One of the greatest scams of the 21st century started with former vice president Al Gore, who influentially introduced the concept of “global warming” to the world. Now, the truth about Gore’s “global warming” scam is documented in a new book by Marc Morano, titled, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change, available at Barnes and Noble.
At the turn of the century, Al Gore’s assets totaled between $780,000 and $1.9 million. After years of scaring the public with “threat of global warming” and convincing legislators to invest taxpayer money into climate change initiatives, Gore’s wealth multiplied. By 2007, Gore’s net worth was “well in excess” of $100 million. Gore had successfully used a climate panic to sway the government to invest in the economic sectors he was poised and ready to profit from. Under the Obama administration, taxpayer money flooded Gore’s investments, with energy stimulus packages awarding Gore’s tremendous hoodwink on the public.
Al Gore, the world’s first “carbon billionaire”
MIT scientist Richard Lindzen called Gore out for wanting to become the first “carbon billionaire.” By 2008, Gore put $300 million into a campaign to promote climate fears while offering carbon reduction solutions that benefited the firms he was invested in. In fact, when the Obama Administration introduced a “renewable energy” solution for the economy, fourteen of the tech firms Gore was invested in had received and/or benefited from over $2.5 billion in loans, grants, and tax breaks. Indeed, Gore had become the first “carbon billionaire.”
Congressman Fred Upton from Michigan called out Gore for using his circle of influence within the investment world and in Washington to profit off taxpayer funds. “Global warming” had done nothing but make Al Gore and his friends rich, while siphoning off billions of dollars from the taxpayers of the U.S. (For more on this topic, visit ClimateScienceNews.com.)
(Natural News) Soils that have been contaminated with heavy metals are not optimal for pretty much any kind of crop. However, a new study revealed that making one simple change could turn things around. Researchers from the Agricultural University of Tirana have discovered that the simple addition of natural zeolite can serve as an effective method for the remediation of heavy metal-contaminated soils. They found different rates of changes depending on the rates of zeolite, but overall it appeared that the results were mostly positive. They have published the details of their research in the Albanian Journal of Agricultural Sciences.
Soils that have been exposed to and contaminated with heavy metals can give rise to similarly contaminated plants. As such, these types of soils pose a great threat to human health. Typical cases of heavy metal contamination are seen as dangerous for the higher risk of exposure to materials such as arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury. Based on many previous studies, these kinds of heavy metals have a number of adverse effects on human health, so they need to be avoided at all costs.
In most cases, the best way to avoid the negative effects of soils that have been contaminated with heavy metals is by opting to grow your own crops on your own land. Land which contains soils that you control and that which you can monitor for possible heavy metal contamination. Of course, that’s not always a possible course of action. So what’s the next best thing that you can do? Soil remediation comes to mind.
(Natural News) One of the very first decisions every prepper has to make is whether to pack up his or her supplies and bug out or stay put and turn their own homestead into a survival post. Some factors that may compel preppers to choose the latter include the ability to create an underground bunker, a self-contained garden, an animal food system, and whether or not you have elderly, younger, disabled or injured family members in your group.
Whatever the reason, if you choose to bug in rather than bug out, you had better make sure you are prepared and equipped to deal with the day to day sanitation issues that you will inevitably run into. To give just one example, the average person produces up to three pints of urine each day and a pound of poop on top of that, meaning human waste is going to build up at an extremely rapid rate. If you don’t know how to properly dispose of that waste, then you will literally be putting your own life and the lives of your fellow survivalists in jeopardy. (Related: Here are five ways you can protect your health when SHTF.)
Obviously, even if you bury human waste, it can still have a severe effect on water quality. In order to minimize the chances that this will happen, you should bury the human waste at least six to eight feet deep and a minimum of 200 feet away from water. It’s worth noting, however, that there are also quite a few uses for urine, so you may want to consider collecting it in some kind of a container and storing it away from any solid waste. Some of the things that urine can be used for are listed below:
Here is an incomplete list of some of the culprits:
A) Foreign Mining Corporations (PolyMet, Glencore, Twin Metals, Antofagasta, etc.);
Minnesota’s Elected Politicians/Accomplices (both Corporate-influenced “Liberal” Democrats, and “Conservative” Republicans);
Minnesota’s “Regulatory” Agencies that are Supposed to be “Natural Resource Protectors” (Including the DNR, the PCA, and the US Forest Service); and
Most Area Newspapers; Most Area Television Stations; All the Area’s Chambers of Commerce; Minnesota Power (Electric Utility); the Trump Administration; Regional Labor Unions: and Dozens of Suppliers/Businesses that will Temporarily Profit from Supplying the Mining Industry While Simultaneously Risking the Permanent Poisoning of the St Louis River Watershed, Including Lake Superior
This column will point out and try to de-mystify some of the often-perplexing developments in the decades-long debate concerning allowing foreign mining corporations (which could justifiably be considered “Undocumented Aliens”) to invade water-rich northern Minnesota in order to extract our state’s non-ferrous metal deposits – for the selfish enrichment of its foreign shareholders and management, none of whom really care about the long-term consequences to the state’s precious water resources.
(Natural News) The invention of robot bees – robobees, for short – could be the long-awaited solution to all sorts of problems caused by the dwindling bee population all around the world. Just in case you haven’t heard, the world bee population has been steadily declining. As a result, a number of different environmental problems have emerged. With bees not fulfilling their role as far as pollination is concerned, some flowers and trees are unable to grow.
But things could change rather drastically with the introduction of robobees, as they could stand in for real bees in the meantime. This is according to Shashi Shekhar, one of the world’s foremost experts on mapping, citing the potential of robobees for serving as instruments in solving the catastrophic food shortages happening worldwide. Shekhar shared his thoughts on the matter as a speaker in the world’s biggest science conference. In his view, the time to embrace bee-sized drones to do things like pollinate crops.
According to a report, Shekhar sees the eventual use of robobees as a mere contingency if not a full necessity. “This is a back-up plan,” he explained. “With climate drying, if you look at areas like California and the West, you are losing lots of trees. If you lose the trees that’s the beginning.” Of course, with the loss of trees in forests, you can probably imagine what will be next to go, as there are a lot of animal species relying on them to survive.
Shekhar isn’t the only one who’s looking forward to a future where robobees are prevalent in case things ever truly go south for the environment. It is said that Japanese scientists have already developed a remotely controlled drone that’s as small as a dragonfly and can be used for the act of pollination. Meanwhile, U.S. scientists have also joined the fray. American researchers are currently planning to create an even smaller version of the above, focusing on the ability to carry pollen grains from one place to another and do it autonomously, at that.
(Natural News) Stockpiling food and water in a small home or apartment can be quite difficult at times, but not if you know how to properly organize. Last month, SmartPrepperGear.com published an article on this very topic, and provided preppers with some incredibly helpful advice regarding how to efficiently organize their emergency food supply.
First and foremost, it’s important to understand that it simply isn’t possible to build an endless food supply. You can potentially stockpile a lot of food and water depending on the size of your home, but even then, your space will eventually run out. That is why it’s necessary to put a plan together and figure out how much food you really need in your emergency food supply.
As SmartPrepperGear.com put it, “In order to determine how much that you need you have to determine the threats you are preparing for. Not all of us are preparing for the same threats. At least, we shouldn’t be. If you are trying to prepare for every threat known to man you will end up only being partially prepared in all areas instead of fully prepared in the important areas.”
Once you have established how much food you will need in your emergency food stockpile, sit down and make a list of food that you and your family will enjoy, since eating food that you like will increase morale and produce hope in the aftermath of a catastrophic event. “For short-term recovery events, you may only need canned and packaged foods,” SmartPrepperGear.com notes, adding that for long-term recovery events, it would be smart to get dehydrated and freeze-dried food. While you should definitely have emergency food for both short-term recovery events and long-term recovery events, it is worth mentioning that the nutritional value in canned foods diminishes at a much faster rate than freeze-dried food – and in a real-life survival situation, you are going to need all the nutrition you can get.
(Natural News) By now toxic microplastics are everywhere. Their victims include seabirds, aquatic mammals, and mega-fauna. Now, they’re also in three out of every four mesopelagic fish caught in the Northwest Atlantic, warned a Science Daily article. The 73 percent contamination rate is one of the highest levels in the world. The unique feeding behavior of mesopelagic fish means they could drag surface microplastics down to the deeper levels of the marine ecosystem.Furthermore, mesopelagic fish are preyed upon by other fish that are in turn caught and consumed by humans. Given the longevity of microplastics, their associated toxins will contaminate our food supply.
“The high ingestion rate of microplastics by mesopelagic fish that we observed has important consequences for the health of marine ecosystems and biogeochemical cycling in general,” said Alina Wieczorek, a researcher from the National University of Ireland, Galway(NUIG.)
As their name denotes, microplastics are tiny fragments of plastic pollutants that have accrued in the ocean over the decades. If ingested by marine organisms, they can cause inflammation, loss of weight, and prevent proper feeding.
Their negative effects are not just limited to the animal that ate them. Microplastics can combine with chemical pollutants in the water. When a contaminated prey animal is eaten by a predator, the toxins will build up in the latter’s bodies.

She has been conducting extensive research on sunspots – ominously cooler regions of the sun’s surface characterized by intense magnetic activity –…
(NaturalNews) Last summer, beaches and waterways were closed after St. Petersburg dumped millions of gallons of a mixture of storm water and untreated sewage into Tampa Bay and Clam Bayou. Swimming, fishing and even playing in the water were subsequently banned, and residents were warned to avoid any type of contact with surface water.The fecal bacteria within this water was deemed dangerous enough to force the closures, but now there is something even more dire to worry about in the area’s waters…
