We just Got Fooled Again
by Ian R Thorpe.

Climate Change and causes relating to saving the planet are becoming an industry, a gravy train. International bureaucrats fly around the world from meeeting to meeting (and they're all in exotic location) to take party in another feat of windbaggery that will solvle neith global warming, food or water shortage, wildlife species extinction or the growing population.

Won't get fooled again" sang The Who many years ago. But we did, then, now and we will keep getting fooled.

'Countries join forces to save life on Earth", a lead story in the Independent newspaper late last year told us.

"Historic", "a landmark", a "much-needed morale booster", were among the other hyperbolic responses in the UK press.

The declaration which was agreed in November 2010 at the summit in Japan committed developed nations collaborating in the protection of the world's wild species and places was proclaimed by almost everyone a great breakthrough. There is one problem: none of the journalists who made these triumphant claims has seen the document.

At the time they wrote their stories all they had read was a press release which, though three pages long, is, like most press releases from government or international organisations almost substance free. The media can't be blamed to much. When a meeting or conference ends editors want a story, Joe Public who strongly suspects these meetings are convened so a self acclaimed elite can have another jolly in a luxury hotel at his expense, want to know what the buggers are planning to waster this latest tranche tax revenue on and the journalists would like to stay in their jobs because they have a mortgage and bills to pay, food to buy etc. But the full text of what has been agreed in the meeting has not been published so the reporters must spin what they can from the vague hints and platitudes in the press release.

The text has not yet been published not will it be any time soon.

Having secured the headlines they wanted, the entire people who organised the convention on biological diversity had moved on to their next jolly in the endless round of freeloading, consorting with high class hookers and wasting taxpayers money on vanity projects that is the lot of those unfortunate enough to be supra - national bureaucrats.

The British government, which lavishly praised the declaration, responded to a freedom of information request by saying it has no printed copies. This is becoming par for the course among the international save-the-planet bureaucracy. Remember the 'Climategate' e-mails in which senior tax eaters climate scientists advised colleagues to destroy data so it could not be accessed through Freedom Of Information laws. International agreements.

Evidence that has leaked out of the conference from various dissatisfied delegates suggests that as with climate science and the carbon tax scam, we've been conned again.. The draft agreement, published before the conference opened contained no binding obligations. Nothing said or written since the conference closed suggests the terms laid out in the draft have changed. The draft, like the various agreements on carbon emissions, proposed the targets for 2020 that governments were asked to agree to only as "aspirations for achievement at the global level" and a "flexible framework", within which countries can pursue their own policies. No government, if the draft was approved without major changes, is obliged to change direction.

In 2002 the signatories to the previous treaty agreed something similar, an authoritative-sounding declaration that imposed no legal commitments. They announced it would "achieve by 2010 a significant reduction of the current rate of biodiversity loss". Mission accomplished, the press proclaimed, and everyone went home to congratulate themselves. Earlier this year the UN admitted the 2002 agreement was fruitless: "The pressures on biodiversity remain constant or increase in intensity." All things being a matter of context and perception they should have been made to spell out what was meant by 'significant'.

The upbeat tone of the press release however cannot hide the fact that all is not well in the 'saving-the-planet' community. The meeting in Japan was supposed to be a summit, bringing together heads of government or state. It mustered five leaders, hardly potentates of Premier League nations : The presidents of Gabon and Guinea-Bissau, the prime minister of Yemen and Prince Albert of Monaco. (The fifth elephant) leader of global standing is not identified, The Lord of Sark perhaps?) A third of the countries represented couldn't even be bothered to send a minister. This is how much they value the world's endangered species.

From this we can surmise that major governments are not so concerned with saving the marvels of planet but the preserving the trade system to that is destroying it. Sure, Tigers are pretty to look at but what do they do. Isn't it better that people fuel economic growth by buying an iPad, a Plasma TV or some other item of the ephemeral junk which is such an important component of many people's identity and self esteem. They issue press releases full of grandiose references to green and sustainable aspirations but once out of the public view fight viciously for the right to turn rainforests into woodpulp, or marine life into fishmeal. Then they dispatch a lowly civil servant to rubber stamp another meaningless and non binding 'international accords' to make the waily-gnashy-teethy faction of their electorates think the elected government actually cares.

They do care of course, but not about the cutesy-pie things that occupy ever smaller niches in the world. They care about power, first about obtaining it and then about holding on to it.

No government stands to gain by trying to prevent big business from trashing the planet. Big business gains more than it loses from converting natural wealth into money and governments gain by letting them do it. A continual expansion of western civilisation into the wilderness allows nations to avoid addressing issues of equality and social justice while promises of perpetual growth diverts attention to the illusory material benefits before people can focus on largely amorphous issues like falling quality of life. By treading on nature we avoid treading on the toes of the powerful, faceless people who really control our lives.

The latest attempt to justify war has been the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine allegely by pro Russia separatists with support from The Kremlin. So far the 'compelling evidence' the American government claimed to possess has not been revealed but such evidence as has been seen points to another false flag even.

Criminal damage in Cambridge reveals the police soft peddaling on Extinction Rebellion crimes Nobody is allowed to walk on the grass outside Trinity College Cambridge. I suppose an exception might be made if you were a 365-year-old don who once lolled under the famous apple tree with Sir Isaac Newton (probably a couple of those old fellows still holed up in the port cellar).

Otherwise, set one foot on that sacred turf and you will soon find yourself experiencing the full force of Newtonian gravity; rugby-tackled to the ground by a puce-faced porter in a bowler hat.

Coronavirus Contains “HIV Insertions”: Claim Stokes Fears Over Genetically Modified BioweaponFor the past two weeks mainstream media reporting of the epidemic of a new strain of coronavirus in China has been getting more and more hysterical.

Corona Virus: Should We Worry

Time is NOT real: Physicists show EVERYTHING happens at the same time

The concept of time is simply an illusion made up of human memories, everything that has ever been and ever will be is happening RIGHT NOW. That is the theory according to a group of esteemed physicists who aim to solve one of the universe’s mysteries.
Most people do not even consider the concept of time but there is nothing in the laws of physics to state that it should move in the forward direction that we know. The laws of physics are symmetric ultimately meaning that time could have easily moved in a backward direction as it does forward. Indeed some adherents to the ‘big crunch’ theory say time WILL run backwards when the universe stops expanding and starts contracting back in on itself.
