Finning is thinning the world’s shark population at an alarming rate.
Between 70 and 100 Million sharks are killed every year, most of which end up in China, where affluent Chinese can eat “Bloody Soup”.
As the video eludes, this destruction of Shark numbers will have a catastrophic effect on the oceanic ecology.

Just what will we experience here on Earth if the temperature rises by Six Degrees. Watch the video and you may get some idea.
Global Warming is happening. Places are drying up. Just to give an example that I have experienced, When I was a young kid I lived in Canberra, which is the capital city of Australia. We would regularly travel past a place called Lake George when visiting relatives who lived about 6 hours north of Canberra. My memory is that the Lake always semed to be full everytime we would pass it. For a number of years in the period around 1975 to 1983 this lake was regularly full or close to it. For the last 20 years or so that I have regularly travelled past the lake, it always seems to be dry or almost dry. Now this is just one example, however many people that I speak to have mentioned similar stories about more regular dry spells in the last 20 years or so, especially in Southern New South Wales in Australia.
You may have similar experiences from when you were younger, or you may disagree with me, either way I would like to hear from you through our comments.

Asteroids have in the past, been somewhere between ‘The Blue Screen of death’ and the ‘Reset button’ for earlier epochs such as the dinosaurs and mammals.
Now if we’d spent the money wasted on the war in Iraq on exploring space, we’d probably not have all our eggs in one basket… the question is, who’s going to supersede us if the unthinkable happens?

It’s the minority running things in Israel and the US that spoil it for the rest of us.
I’ll say again, someone saying that their God says they are in the right and his chosen people, is no basis for justice, and an ability to miss direct or tell barefaced lies, is not going to fool anyone… but it may suffice for one eyed Judges, or a United Nations, where a majority is rendered impotent by one nation’s consciousless vote.

The thought that occurred to me whilst watching this clip was. Is it effecting animals? If it is, then neurosis is unlikely to be the cause. If it’s not effecting then, then either it’s all bullshit or there is a reason why it’s not effecting animals… I’d be checking out the animals.
As for our doctors, most are little more than drug pushers with unwarranted superiority complexes… many doctors drink too much, they smoke, they take recreational drugs and are addicted to prescription drugs, they get into troubles with gambling debts, cheat on their partners, and they kill more than 20,000 patients a year in Australia through their incompetence (and a similar percentage of patients apparently in the US and probably elsewhere), doctors also commit suicide and murder, in short they are human, not gods.

There is an area on the south west coast of Tasmania Australia, where for a good part of the year you get enough wind as they say, to “blow a dog off the chain.” Now you would think that such an area not only could supply a huge amount of not just wind power, but wave power as well.
Well you like myself would be disappointed, they’d sooner build a dam and kill another river… you see, most of the energy concerns are being given to big corporations, who contribute to the political parties, items such as windmills and wave power machines are more suited to medium companies who can’t compete in the area of political donations.

The irony is if it is deliberate and calculated, it’s being done by powerful people, so expecting doctors, who are for the most part trained by pharmaceutical companies that occupy the top of the Fortune 500; basically selling drugs for them, to help you… best of luck. And if your planning to get the alternative health people to help you, well they have that covered to.

I commend the Americans on their efforts to use Tidal energy. In northern Australia, as you will see below, we have Tides that are almost 40’… you got to be careful in these areas where you tie your boat up to, or you could find it underwater or hanging from it’s mooring lines.
Anyway, you can see the high water mark on the rock walls in the video below… can you imagine the power you could generate with the energy in that water? Sure you mightn’t be able lay down power lines back to the cities, but you may be able to say use that power on site, to produce hydrogen or drive a factory that produce solar cells and turbine generators, you know it helps if the manufacturing costs are offset by free or even cheap power.
The reason why they don’t, is because as I often say, “When your snout’s in the trough, the rim’s your horizon.”

I like the little old lady, she’s onto em. As for expecting the US ABC to report the facts, yeah right, right after FOX does.
Whatever they are up to is probably not good for the majority, and the fact that they are not giving an explanation tends to support that idea… maybe the Collage science students should investigate further, or are they all too busy playing with their iPods?

There is some controversy over what tunes exactly the Titanic’s band was playing on deck, as they and the Titanic slipped beneath the icy waters of the Atlantic on that April night. But the unconfirmed rumors say “Song d’Automne” and the appropriate “Nearer, My God, to Thee” were heard by the survivors.
WTF is the Hippie talking about I hear you say? Well, at a time when it’s bleedingly obvious that things are going array, and after almost 12 years of total inaction by Bush in the US and Australia’s Liberal (Republican look a likes) government led by John Winston Howard and his merry group of environmental vandals; acting on behalf of the coal companies, you would hope for an improvement.
Sadly Howard’s replacement, Kevin Rudd’s Labor (Democrat look a likes) government’s first action is to put a means test on the subsidy given to people who put solar panels on their homes… yep you heard me right, hard to believe isn’t it, but get this, ironically they said it was because they thought the Solar industries were in danger of overheating.
But wait there’s more. Brendon Neilson, the new Liberal opposition leader, who prior to joining the Liberal party had an ear stud, and who prior to taking command, stated with gusto and feeling “I have never voted Liberal in my life”! is now doing his best to prevent Australia moving from being world leaders in pollution, to being leaders in the no action brigade and full steam a head on the economy. Meanwhile the band’s breaking out their instruments.
Thankfully Western Europe is making an effort, Germany with about half the sunlight of Australia is actually doing more with solar than Australia, Holland and Great Britain are building tidal turbines, even though they don’t have the 10 meter plus tides we have in the north of our country, and Iceland is going gangbusters with geothermal, whilst Australia is thinking about pilot geothermal plants… it’s embarrassing.
But I’m going to save my praise for Allen Jones; currently working on solving London’s power problems, who’s one of the few who’s got a grasp on the fact that centralized power sources; which only suit the power and fossil fuel industries, are largely inefficient and unnecessary, that with a bit of uncommon sense, you can provide all the power you need to drive a city in the city, by using a variety of what’s often referred to as alternative energy… good on you Allen.
