A short-term solution could turn into a long-term environmental tragedy.

When you think about it, it’s pretty flabbergasting just how much water is a part of our lives. Not only does it comprise roughly 75 percent of the globe, but it comprises almost as much of our own bodies. Water’s a universal element in itself. Universal in that everyone, no matter who we are or what our backgrounds are, rely on this simple substance for survival.
It’s also local. It hits close to home when gas companies want to put something so important at stake, for the sake of buying time in the midst of global climate and energy crises.
If you live in Upstate New York, you are probably well aware that two of the five Great Lakes are practically in your back yard. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to be able to say I live less than 10 miles away from Lake Ontario, one of the largest sources of fresh water for the world. Then, about 20 miles south, are the beginnings of the Finger Lakes region, also a major component of the world’s fresh water resources. Tourism, fine wineries and local marine activities are centered around the indescribable and constant beauty of the Finger Lakes and Great Lakes; but if hydrofracking — the process of pumping millions of gallons of pressurized water, sand and chemicals down a newly drilled well to blast out the surrounding shale rock and gas — is allowed in New York State, all of the beauty and ecology we enjoy could be damaged.
What is unique about this issue is the two major geologic formations that lay below most of Pennsylvania and Western New York State. The one formation we hear a lot about in the local papers is the Marcellus Shale, which is a vast expanse of shale rock that covers most of Pennsylvania, parts of Virginia, West Virginia and the Finger Lakes region of New York. There is an estimated 500 trillion cubic feet of natural gas trapped inside the shale, and from this estimate, there are projections that natural gas could power the U.S. for another 60 years or so, maintaining present energy demands.
However, there has been recent discovery of the Utica Shale, which goes further down into the crust than Marcellus, and geologists estimate there is even morenatural gas. The Utica Shale extends under all of Rochester and even into Lake Ontario. Just when we thought Rochester, N.Y., would be safe from the drillers, we were proven wrong.
Hydrofracking and water go hand in hand, because the former will have devastating effects on our water if New York State decides to lift the ban on hydrofracking. However, gas companies make hydrofracking look like a safe, almost neighborhood-friendly project that will boost the local economy.
Myths about fracking
Of the plethora of hydrofracking myths, one of the most popular ones is that horizontal drilling will yield an abundance of clean natural gas. I’ve never heard of any “clean” greenhouse gas. The main component of natural gas is methane, which is a very potent greenhouse gas, more so than carbon dioxide.
Here’s another myth: hydrofracking is a 60-year-old, well-proven technology. At a recent lecture I attended, this myth was debunked because in reality the technologies used now for hydrofracking are about four years old. To me, this screams “not enough research!” How can something so young, in terms of technology, be considered safe?
Yet another myth used by the gas companies is that fluid migration is a rare event. This simply means that the fluids used to break up the shale beds (and, keep in mind, this “fracking fluid” contains over 500 different chemicals, many of them carcinogens) have a small chance of reaching into other fissures that could lead to groundwater aquifers. I beg to differ because not only have I seen “Gasland,” the award-winning documentary that revealed the flammable water coming out of faucets in Pennsylvania, but also because that statement just doesn’t cut it. There have been too many incidences of contaminated waste water pools spilling over into fields and high levels of benzene and toluene in parts of Pennsylvania where hydrofracking is very prevalent.
What it all boils down to
This issue is much more than a tug-of-war between gas companies and people concerned about their water quality. Hydrofracking could threaten the quality of life for small towns, and it already has in rural parts of Pennsylvania. The danger from the chemicals used to break up the shale does not stop at the drilling sites; these chemicals, such as benzene, formaldehyde and methane, can leach into groundwater and soil, disrupting aquatic ecosystems and human and animal health.
This is a question of environmental justice, and I believe no one should be subject to harmful chemicals, even if the incentives for hydrofracking tout economic benefit and more jobs. We need to invest our money and energy into developing renewable sources of energy such as wind, solar and geothermal.
If hydrofracking is allowed in my state, all I can think to ask our legislators is this: what kind of world are we leaving for the future? Are we being responsible about this?
I once was told that equity is the key to being environmentally sound and people-oriented. I don’t think destruction of forests and putting local farms at risk of contamination is fair. We keep thinking forward, about change, about furthering economic prosperity. The sad truth is that “our technology is outrunning our common sense.” These are the wise words of Chief Oren Lyons, a leader in environmental awareness. When the drillers come invade the once quiet towns and forested areas of the Northeast, not only are they poisoning our water, but they are poisoning our children’s futures.
Gas companies may say that the natural gas below my feet is abundant and cheap and can power our county for decades to come.
The same thing was once said of oil.

FOX News Banned for Manufacturing False News in Canada? Also False? You decide!


Silas says:

Canada’s Radio Act requires that “a licenser may not broadcast….any false or misleading news.” The provision has kept Fox News and right wing talk radio out of Canada’s FREE TV programming. (You have to purchase a cable package to access it.)

How Ironic.

Who First Claimed that FOX News Was Banned in Canada
Because of a Law Against Lying During Newscasts?

(Oh, say it ain’t so already!)

As such, we encourage you to redirect all angry comments hither: http://sayitaintsoalready.com/2011/03/02/fox-shut-out-of-canada-because-of-a-law-against-lying-during-newscasts/

For clarification and the real story, see http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?350938-FOX-News-BANNED-In-Canada-%28mod-note-not-entirely-true%29

We also want to stress that FOX News does indeed lie pathologically, is a false friend to conservatives, is certainly no friend to liberty. Their loyalties are rather with the Khazars who, for that matter, run all mainstream news and information outlets including our schools. http://antinewworldorderparty.wordpress.com/2012/02/12/judge-napolitano-fired-after-this-broadcast-of-freedom-watch/

As the first article linked purports and the second thread debunks

News Corp., the parent company of Fox News, was hoping to open a propaganda branch in Canada — called “Sun News TV” (or “Fox North”). It was hoping its crony in Ottawa, winger Prime Minister Stephen Harper, would be successful in overturning a law prohibiting lying on broadcast news. (Imagine that. There is a law in Canada prohibiting lying during newscasts. How civilized.) But, thank goodness there is still some sanity in the world; they were wrong:
As America’s middle class battles for its survival on the Wisconsin barricades – against various Koch Oil surrogates and the corporate toadies at Fox News – fans of enlightenment, democracy and justice can take comfort from a significant victory north of the Wisconsin border. Fox News will not be moving into Canada after all! The reason: Canadian regulators announced last week they would reject efforts by Canada’s right-wing Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, to repeal a law that forbids lying on broadcast news.
Canada’s Radio Act requires that “a licenser may not broadcast … any false or misleading news.” The provision has kept Fox News and right-wing talk radio out of Canada and helped make Canada a model for liberal democracy and freedom. As a result of that law, Canadians enjoy high quality news coverage, including the kind of foreign affairs and investigative journalism that flourished in this country before Ronald Reagan abolished the “Fairness Doctrine” in 1987.
Political dialogue in Canada is marked by civility, modesty, honesty, collegiality, and idealism that have pretty much disappeared on the US airwaves. When Stephen Harper moved to abolish the anti-lying provision of the Radio Act, Canadians rose up to oppose him fearing that their tradition of honest non-partisan news would be replaced by the toxic, overtly partisan, biased and dishonest news coverage familiar to American citizens who listen to Fox News and talk radio. Harper’s proposal was timed to facilitate the launch of a new right-wing network, “Sun TV News” which Canadians call “Fox News North.”
Something like this would never happen in the US because the people in Washington work for the corporations, not for the good of the country but, again, it’s nice to know sanity still exists somewhere in the world.
Congratulations Canada!
Now we wait to see if “Sun News TV” agrees not to lie, something I think it’s incapable of. Telling the truth isn’t part of its consciousness or its business model.

Dead seal numbers declared ‘unusual event,’ get fed attention

WIRE AND STAFF REPORTS

Gloucester Daily Times

Sunday, November 13, 2011

GLOUCESTER, Mass. —Federal officials are stepping up an investigation into the deaths of 146 harbor seals along the New England coast since September after samples of five of them tested positive for the Influenza A virus, authorities say.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced that the deaths have been declared “an unusual event,” enabling the agency to pour more resources into the probe. The declaration came after consultations with a panel of international experts established under the Marine Mammal Protection Act to monitor and investigate sea animal health concerns.

The 146 seals generally were less than a year old and had healthy appearances. They were found in Maine, New Hampshire and across northern Massachusetts, including along Cape Ann.

The deaths of the young harbor seals grabbed the attention of scientists in late September when six carcasses were found on Rye Beach in New Hampshire. Some of the seals had been dead for up to two weeks and others only for a matter of a couple of days. By mid-October the number of dead seals had risen to nearly 100.

At least two young seals were found dead in Rockport, Mass., on Oct. 14 and 16.

The Whale Center of New England, based on Harbor Loop in Gloucester, has responded to calls to pick up the bodies of harbor seals that have washed up in Massachusetts, and interim executive director Dale Brown said her organization has brought the seals’ bodies to the New England Aquarium to be necropsied, as were the New Hampshire seals.

NOAA officials had previously ruled out human involvement in the strandings, both direct involvement, including attacks on the animals, and indirect involvement, such as fishing entanglements.

NOAA officials said in a statement the deaths were more than three times the average number of strandings that typically occur this time of year.

Although tissues from five seals examined by a New England aquarium tested positive for the Influenza A virus, test results for six other viral pathogens and biotoxins were negative, the agency said.

“Even though preliminary results have been received, they are only indicative of those five cases, and additional evaluations are under way to determine whether the influenza virus has played a role in the overall mortalities,” the statement said.

In addition to the role played by the Whale Center of New England, the unexplained deaths triggered a response from NOAA’s national Marine Mammal Stranding Network, the New England Aquarium’s Marine Mammal Rescue Program and the University of New England’s Marine Animal Rescue Center.

Authorities are warning the public that the seals could pose a human health risk.

“We want to remind people to not get close to seals encountered along the shore, to keep their pets away and to report any sightings to us through our stranding hot line while we continue to assess whether there is any potential human health risk,” said Teri Rowles, who coordinated the National Marine Mammal Health and Stranding Response Program.

The harbor seal population in the Northeast is considered healthy, so the spate of deaths doesn’t signal broad trouble. The last census, in 2001, showed 99,000 harbor seals, and a survey this year is expected to show the population has grown, said Mendy Garron, regional marine mammal stranding coordinator for the National Marine Fisheries Service.

The past few decades have seen some notable seal die-offs in the Northeast, including in a rash of influenza deaths around 1979 and 1980 that New England Aquarium spokesman Tony LaCasse previously said were linked to bird flu. Scientists theorized that the seals were exposed when they sunned themselves on rocks dotted with bird droppings, he said.

In 2006, a morbillivirus killed hundreds of local harbor and gray seals, Garron said. The virus killed 20,000 seals in the United Kingdom in the early 2000s, with harbor seals accounting for 44 percent of the deaths, she said.

Tics Strikes Students Thimerosal in Vaccines causes Tourette-like illness at Leroy High School in NY

Media Protects Deadly Vaccines

http://www.facebook.com/danieljleachjr

Once again the Mainstream Media is covering up the the fact that Vaccines can Cause bodily injury.  The mainstream news has failed to show the connection between Vaccines and Tics a Tourette-like illness in high school teen girl students at a Leroy High school in NY State.

Much like the Bilderberg group that makes the mainstream press part of the conspiracy of silence, causing them to ignore major story’s that would protect the American people.  For Lack of Knowledge My People Perish (Hosea 4:6)

“We are grateful to The Washington Post, New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years” . David Rockefeller (1991)Bilderberg Group

Shame on you Mainstream Media the People’s blood is on your hands  you will all be judged by God one day.  “If You Warn Not the People, Their Blood Is on Your Hand! … he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.”Eze 33    But its seems that the people already have made a judgement against you because your a dying trade.

Vaccine Research
on Thimerosal:
Tics and More

Have you seen any articles in the media emphasizing that thimerosal in vaccines is a cause of tics?  Me neither, but we should have.

This article summarizes four studies on the use of thimerosal in vaccines and its effect on neurodevelopmental delays. The research was published between 2004 and 2008.

It is striking that the development of tics was the most common consequence of the thimerosal exposure based on the study of select conditions. We should point out that there is some controversy regarding the statistical approaches used in the different studies, particularly because some studies do not show a link to autism while others do.

To read the abstracts for each study, click on the link below. Our short summary is provided to  show the consistent tic connection. As you will see, other neurological conditions were also found to be negatively affected by the thimerosal.

This discovery on the relationship between the toxin methylmercury and the development of tics is hugely important. First, it highlights the relationship between tics and neurotoxins. This should put families on alert that they should not only avoid all exposures to toxins but should also consider evaluation for toxic overload, with follow-up treatment plans developed as needed. Second, given the results of this research, thimerosal exposure should be avoided by those with tics and Tourette syndrome as well as pregnant women. It is currently standard in flu vaccines, but you can request to have the vaccine without the preservative Thimerosal.

Thimerosal exposure in infants and neurodevelopmental disorders: an assessment of computerized medical records in the Vaccine Safety Datalink.

Summarized results: Consistent significantly increased rate ratios were observed for autism, autism spectrum disorders, tics, attention deficit disorder, and emotional disturbances with Hg exposure from TCVs.

Safety of thimerosal-containing vaccines: a two-phased study of computerized health maintenance organization databases.

Relative risks for neurodevelopmental disorders were calculated per increase of 12.5 micro g of estimated cumulative mercury exposure from TCVs in the first, third, and seventh months of life. RESULTS: In phase I at HMO A, cumulative exposure at 3 months resulted in a significant positive association with tics.
