2017: Breakthrough Artificial Photosynthesis Cleans Polluted Air, Makes Energy

An invention by scientists at the University of Central Florida turns greenhouse gases into clean air, producing fuel at the same time. By mixing titanium with organic molecules, they created metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) tuned to blue light. These ‘light-harvesting antennae’ created reactions which turned CO2 into two reduced forms of carbon, formate, and formamides, described as two kinds of solar fuel. … the system could one day be set up next to facilities that emit large amounts of carbon dioxide, where it would capture the CO2 and break it down into harmless organic materials, creating solar fuel in the process. … ‘This work is a breakthrough,’ said UCF Assistant Professor Fernando Uribe-Romo. ‘Tailoring materials that will absorb a specific color of light is very difficult from the scientific point of view… While scientists have long investigated the idea, it’s remained difficult to find a way for visible light to […] Read More

The Most Dangerous Police Force in America

The Fresno PD is under investigation and speculation within a vast majority of independent sources. An activist by the name of John Lang predicted his own death for speaking out against the corruption of the police force here in Fresno county. His murder is shrined in mystery to the utmost severity. Drawing international recognition by the strongest hacker force to ever exist titled Anonymous, in which they publicly target Fresno Cities Representatives in claiming they would take down their website for lack of response or credibility for future investigations, stating “John Lang will not be forgotten”. The police were found to be capitalizing illegally on Fresno residents by profiling, and scanning license plates of parked cars and then proceed to stalk the drivers of Fresno’s community in pulling residents over to harass and fine residents. By capitalizing on a corrupt ticketing system for the sake of monetary gain. John […] Read More

2015: Michigan Is in the Midst of a “Massive Experiment in Unraveling U.S. Democracy”

This post first appeared at TomDispatch.com Something is rotten in the state of Michigan. One city neglected to inform its residents that its water supply was laced with cancerous chemicals. Another dissolved its public school district and replaced it with a charter school system, only to witness the for-profit management company it hired flee the scene after determining it couldn’t turn a profit. Numerous cities and school districts in the state are now run by single, state-appointed technocrats, as permitted under an emergency financial manager law pushed through by Rick Snyder, Michigan’s austerity-promoting governor. This legislation not only strips residents of their local voting rights, but gives Snyder’s appointee the power to do just about anything, including dissolving the city itself—all (no matter how disastrous) in the name of “fiscal responsibility.” If you’re thinking, “Who cares?” since what happens in Michigan stays in Michigan, think again. The state’s aggressive balance-the-books […] Read More

2015: Tech Giants Poised To Bathe Earth In Microwave Radiation

International Public Health Coalition Says Planned Global WiFi from Space Will Destroy Ozone Layer, Worsen Climate Change, and Threaten Human Life and Health” Global Union Against Radiation Deployment from Space (GUARDS) via MemoryHoleBlog Google, Facebook, and three other companies (here, here, here, here, and here) are gearing up to provide high-speed global WiFi coverage from space within the next three to four years. This would be an ecological and public health nightmare, according to a recently-formed international coalition: the Global Union Against Radiation Deployment from Space (GUARDS). According to GUARDS, the extensive satellite networks required will endanger the ozone layer and significantly contribute to climate change. Rocket exhaust contains ozone-destroying chlorine, water vapor (a greenhouse gas), and aluminum oxide particles, which seed stratospheric clouds. Complete ozone destruction is observed in the exhaust plumes of rockets. The New York Times (May 14, 1991, p. 4) quoted Aleksandr Dunayev of the Russian Space […] Read More
