If You Think These Are Just “Contrails” Think Again – Here’s What They Really Are

Most would agree that the Earth has been experiencing extreme shifts in its climatic system for a number of years, and many factors seem to be involved. Despite the heavy political agenda that’s been tied to global warming,  and the constant finger pointing towards our use of fossil fuels, other factors continue to receive little attention that may play a bigger role in climate change, environmental degradation and human health ailments. **I just wanted to make a note to readers to check out the annotated bibliography at the end of this article for more information.** A few of them for example, are the natural cycles of the universe, another example is the consumption of meat. Not many people are aware of the fact that eating meat in today’s world is the number one cause of human induced climate change and environmental degradation, even more so than fossil fuels, yet […] Read More

Obama Caught Lying Again: “We Don’t Have The Technological Breakthroughs To Replace Fossil Fuels”

Not long ago, Barack Obama said: “We’re all about increasing energy efficiency and finding new, renewable, clean sources of energy. We don’t yet have the technological breakthroughs that could completely replace fossil fuels. We will be using our current methods of energy generation for the next 20 to 30 years. ” (see video below) This is another example of the president of the United States blatantly lying. It’s extremely clear that we do have solutions to the current energy challenges we have. This became even more evident in the mainstream world when (recently) the Rockefeller family dropped their investments in fossil fuels and switched over to clean energy. (source) The world’s largest private bank, UBS, is urging investors to join the clean, renewable energy movement. Analysts at the bank say that power plants in Europe might be extinct within the next 10 to 20 years. “Most of the plants retiring in […] Read More

14-Year-Old Bindi Irwin Stands Up To Hillary Clinton For Freedom Of Speech

Bindi Irwin was asked by Hillary Clinton to write a 1000-word essay on conservation as part of Secretary Clinton’s endangered species initiative. The piece was to be published in the December issue titled Go Wild Coming Together for Conservation, but Clinton didn’t like what Bindi had to say on population and the environment and wanted it changed. A not so happy, Bindi wrote to Hillary Clinton’s organisation and said “what happened to freedom of speech?”  “This is my opinion and I don’t want that edited out.” Fourteen year old Bindi was asked to write for US Secretary of State Clinton’s e-journal about why she had chosen to work in wildlife conservation. Her essay largely focused on the issue of overpopulation but the piece was returned, heavily censored with all references to overpopulation removed. She is understandably upset.

A Tree That Eats Metal Was Just Discovered In The Philippines

Plants have evolved to exclude any metal from their roots or in any of the surrounding soil. Most plants do this, but not a particular plant called the Rinorea Niccolifera. It was discovered in the jungles of the Philippines and can accumulate up to 18,000 ppm of metal in its leaves and roots without being poisoned. This is 100 to 1000 times the amount of metal that normal plants can take in. Researchers at the University of the Phillippines – Los Banos that described the species in a new report also discovered that its ability to eat toxic levels of metals could make the tree a great solution to toxic waste sites around the planet. This is why this discovery is so important. It is a small tree, normally 1.8 meters tall with a stem ranging from 3 to 13 centimetres in diameter. You can access the full study […] Read More

Supercars Taking Steps To Go Eco-Friendly

Tesla Motors IPO was just $19 a share in 2010, and many on Wall Street thought the company was doomed for disaster. Boy, were they ever wrong. As of 5/5/2014, Tesla is trading at $216/share with specialized Tesla recharge stations starting to pop up across the country. This story of the “little electric engine that could” now looks to be one of the biggest, most daunting shadows to be cast over the car industry since the likes of Henry Ford. Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson said on October 31st, 2004, “[Supercars] are designed to melt ice-caps, kill the poor, poison the water table, destroy the ozone layer, decimate indigenous wildlife, recapture the Falkland Islands, and turn the entire Third World into a huge uninhabitable desert… but only after they’ve nicked all the world’s oil.”  10 years ago, this sentiment was amusing. Today, as we have become significantly greener as a […] Read More
