Civilisation mondaine, civilisation sensuelle, de la fausse innocence, du potlatch de la plus-value : civilisation machinale.

"Climate Change" seems to be the new buzzword these days among environmentalists and politicians who were formerly the proponents of "Global-Warming". Unfortunately, the term "climate change" is a meaningless phrase. The climate is always changing, about as often as the weather in fact. Some years are warm, while others are cool. Some years are dry, while others are wet. There are El Niños, and there are La Niñas. There have been ice ages and warm periods throughout Earth's history. And the term "Global Climate Change" is not much better. That simply tells us that the climate is changing everywhere in the world. Yeah, and so...?
- # Just the $600 billion that Congress has allocated for military operations in Iraq to date could have built over 9000 wind farms (at 50 MW capacity each), with the overall capacity to meet a quarter of the country’s current electricity demand. If 25% of our power came from wind, rather than coal, it would reduce US GHG emissions by over 1 billion metric tons of CO2 per year – equivalent to approximately 1/6 of the country’s total CO2 emissions in 2006.
- # In 2006, the US spent more on the war in Iraq than the whole world spent on investment in renewable energy
Entendez-vous parler ici ou là, d'une crise de l'alimentation ?
Va-t-on, à nouveau, être exposé à ce colonialisme misérabiliste qui consistera en l'envoie de tonne de riz à Haiti et en afrique ? Qu'on en finisse avec leur agriculture déjà quasiment éradiquée...
Commençons par en finir une fois pour toute avec les OGM.

Genetic modification actually cuts the productivity of crops, an authoritative new study shows, undermining repeated claims that a switch to the controversial technology is needed to solve the growing world food crisis.
The study – carried out over the past three years at the University of Kansas in the US grain belt – has found that GM soya produces about 10 per cent less food than its conventional equivalent, contradicting assertions by advocates of the technology that it increases yields.
Duffy asked Marohasy: "Is the Earth stillwarming?"
She replied: "No, actually, there has been cooling, if you take 1998 as your point of reference. If you take 2002 as your point of reference, then temperatures have plateaued. This is certainly not what youd expect if carbon dioxide is driving temperature because carbon dioxide levels have been increasing but temperatures have actually been coming down over the last 10 years."
Duffy: "Is this a matter of any controversy?"
Très bon film. Il n'y a rien d'inutile, on voit que l'auteur a pris un soin poarticulier pour nous exposer les faits. J'apprécie beaucoup la discrétion avec laquelle elle réussi à nous montrer son indignation face à ces personnages infréquantables et pire. Chapeau !
Comment une telle firme a-t-elle pu subsister aussi longtemps ?
