Ties with the US endangers Australia’s future.


Recently I bookmarked an SMH press release about our former Prime Minister, Malcolm Frazer, advocating independence from the US, at least in its global military ambitions. In particular with the US harassment of China to the extent that a serious conflict might result. Continue reading

New Study: Two Thousand Years of Northern European Summer Temperatures Show a Downward Trend


Ken McMurtrie:

So where is the evidence that Carbon is a significant factor in global temperature trends?Featured Image -- 16859
Air pollution needs controlling, but what has that to do with carbon controls and costs?
So where is the justification for the political and financial controls?
Perhaps world government agenda is the real reason!

In a paper published in the Journal of Quaternary Science, Esper et al. (2014) write that tree-ring chronologies of maximum latewood density (MXD) “are most suitable to reconstruct annually resolved summer temperature variations of the late Holocene.” And working with what they call “the world’s two longest MXD-based climate reconstructions” – those of Melvin et al. (2013) and Esper et al. (2012) – they combined portions of each to produce a new-and-improved summer temperature history for northern Europe that stretches all the way “from 17 BC to the present.” And what did they thereby learn?

As the international team of researchers from the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Greece, Sweden and Switzerland describes it, this history depicts “a long-term cooling trend of -0.30°C per 1,000 years over the Common Era in northern Europe” (see figure below). Most important of all, however, they note that their temperature reconstruction…

Revolution – Humanity, It’s Time To Rise – Peacefully!


From Collective Evolution post on Face Book.

An opinion on this video which deserves serious contemplation.

Revolution is a strong word which can take many forms.
Peaceful revolution is the only just form, but it might not succeed.
The might of the hierarchy with its military and associated supporters, is clearly in action. Public revolution in the streets, or voiced on the internet is relatively impotent and is leading to violence and censorship respectively. It gets the attention of the ungodly, but only niggles them into responses that clearly show their presence and their power. Nothing done so far has any influence on their evil intentions or on how they are going about creating their own world empire.

Russia and China with a degree of international support, will stand up and be counted, but, heaven forbid, a serious world war may result. Meantime what can the public do?
What is the answer?

If there is one, it can exist  ONLY IF the majority of the population actually realize that they are at the bottom of the heap and being squashed.
The sooner the general population learn the true situations, and do realize that there is a real threat to humanity, the easier it might be to negate the evil slaughter that is deliberately being thrust on us.
Apparently, half the American population are ok with torture. How can that occur?
They think that it is ok because it is being applied to ‘baddies’ and that their own safety is ensured by the result. Or perhaps they are simply sadistic people?
Will they ever open their eyes and minds to enable them to see that they are wrong!
They are being lied to, in so many ways, and cannot comprehend otherwise.
Apparently the same limited understanding of reality applies to most Western countries. If people only had more time to read widely on the internet and many published books, and also have the inclination and ability to push their minds past the indoctrinated barrier of unqualified trust in authorities, unthinking acceptance of news media and come out of their mental comfort zone, things might change.
Imagine!

If all American people said “we abhor our countrymen torturing other people”, “we want things to change”, “we do not support gross expenditure on warfare overseas whilst our own people are suffering from lack of funding in health, education, public services, etc”, “we do not accept brutal behaviour of some police”, “we want the justice that John Lennon, JFK and MLK Jnr stood for, and spoke out for!”

Perhaps then, the force of opinion by the public would have an impact.
If the public stopped buying newspapers and paying for transmitted media propaganda, perhaps the media would support the public instead of their masters?
But first, the public must be aware!
The public must clear the cobwebs from their mind and consider the enormous amount of information on the internet in particular, that convincingly tells of the real driving forces in play and of the illusions that are promulgated by mainstream press.

This video might help that process.

Could there then be a revolution of the public peacefully taking back their freedom?
Dream On!

Maybe there is nothing practical for individuals to achieve, but at least realize that many people are fully aware of the injustices and do speak out about them. At least be aware that these injustices really exist and that they represent considerable dangers to a humane civilization. Then one can make a realistic choice of how they should deal with it.

Science is being corrupted by political bias


Linked from Facebook and copied here because it is the truth!

From Matt Ridley’s Blog:

Policy-based evidence making

Science is being corrupted by political bias

My column in the Times, with post-scripts:

As somebody who has championed science all his career, carrying a lot of water for the profession against its critics on many issues, I am losing faith. Recent examples of bias and corruption in science are bad enough. What’s worse is the reluctance of scientific leaders to criticise the bad apples. Science as a philosophy is in good health; science as an institution increasingly stinks.

The Nuffield Council on Bioethics published a report last week that found evidence of scientists increasingly “employing less rigorous research methods” in response to funding pressures. A 2009 survey found that almost 2 per cent of scientists admitting that they have fabricated results; 14 per cent say that their colleagues have done so.

This month has seen three egregious examples of poor scientific practice. The most recent was the revelation in The Times last week that scientists appeared to scheme to get neonicotinoid pesticides banned, rather than open-mindedly assessing all the evidence. These were supposedly “independent” scientists, yet they were hand in glove with environmental activists who were receiving huge grants from the European Union to lobby it via supposedly independent reports, and they apparently had their conclusions in mind before they gathered the evidence. Documents that have recently come to light show them blatantly setting out to make policy-based evidence, rather than evidence-based policy.

Second example: last week, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), a supposedly scientific body, issued a press release stating that this is likely to be the warmest year in a century or more, based on surface temperatures. Yet this predicted record would be only one hundredth of a degree above 2010 and two hundredths of a degree above 2005 — with an error range of one tenth of a degree. True scientists would have said: this year is unlikely to be significantly warmer than 2010 or 2005 and left it at that.

In any case, the year is not over, so why the announcement now? Oh yes, there’s a political climate summit in Lima this week. The scientists of WMO allowed themselves to be used politically. Not that they were reluctant. To squeeze and cajole the data until they just crossed the line, the WMO “reanalysed” a merger of five data sets. Maybe that was legitimate but, given how the institutions that gather temperature data have twice this year been caught red-handed making poorly justified adjustments to “homogenise” and “in-fill” thermometer records in such a way as to cool down old records and warm up new ones, I have my doubts.

In one case, in Rutherglen, a town in Victoria, a recorded cooling trend of minus 0.35C became a reported warming trend of plus 1.73C after “homogenisation” by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology. It claimed the adjustment was necessary because the thermometer had moved between two fields, but could provide no evidence for this, or for why it necessitated such a drastic adjustment.

Most of the people in charge of collating temperature data are vocal in their views on climate policy, which hardly reassures the rest of us that they leave those prejudices at the laboratory door. Imagine if bankers were in charge of measuring inflation.

Third example: the Royal Society used to be the gold standard of scientific objectivity. Yet this month it issued a report on resilience to extreme weather that, in its 100-plus pages, could find room for not a single graph to show recent trends in extreme weather. That is because no such graph shows an upward trend in global frequency of droughts, storms or floods. The report did find room for a graph showing the rising cost of damage by extreme weather, which is a function of the increased value of insured property, not a measure of weather.

The Royal Society report also carefully omitted what is perhaps the most telling of all statistics about extreme weather: the plummeting death toll. The global probability of being killed by a drought, flood or storm is down by 98 per cent since the 1920s and has never been lower — not because weather is less dangerous but because of improvements in transport, trade, infrastructure, aid and communication.

The Royal Society’s decision to cherry-pick its way past such data would be less worrying if its president, Sir Paul Nurse, had not gone on the record as highly partisan on the subject of climate science. He called for those who disagree with him to be “crushed and buried”, hardly the language of Galileo.

Three months ago Sir Paul said: “We need to be aware of those who mix up science, based on evidence and rationality, with politics and ideology, where opinion, rhetoric and tradition hold more sway. We need to be aware of political or ideological lobbyists who do not respect science, cherry-picking data or argument, to support their predetermined positions.”

If he wishes to be consistent, he will therefore condemn the behaviour of the scientists over neonicotinoids and the WMO over temperature records, and chastise his colleagues’ report, for these are prime examples of his point.

Please read the complete article here, and consider the whole picture. The science institution has much to explain.

Stephen Harper and Oz Prime Minister John Howard SAME SPEECH


Ken McMurtrie:

This video, posted this week, is now 10 years old, but it is reasonable to ask if anything has changed in principle.
The extremely serious issue presented here is that, neither Canada nor Australia are free countries, but are controlled by a “higher” authority. (I place ‘higher’ in quotation marks because higher it may be in authority, but IMHO, lower, much lower, in moral and ethical standards).
Is this not a just conclusion?
Is this not a reason for all Australians and Canadians to start to ponder how much value there is in believing what governments and the media tell us?
A critical think about what we are told, is in order, if we don’t wish to be pawns in a world “chess game”.
Or, we can ignore such truths as “not affecting me” and perhaps live to experience later regrets.

[Video link suspect – but should work from the TIP post.]

Record Global Temperature—Conflicting Reports, Contrasting Implications


Ken McMurtrie:

Several main attributes of this article :
1. Although purely a scientific discussion it is straightforward and easy to read and understand, ideal for public consumption :-)
2. It is written without any agenda bias.
3. It reminds us of the complexities of the “climate science”, the relatively miniscule variations (tenths of a degree), in global temperature averages which are processed from temperature variations ranging hundreds of times larger. Polar (seasonal variations roughly [NP: 0 to minus 40 degC], [SP: minus 15 to minus 100 degC]), compared to Equitorial variations (seasonal variations small, perhaps 3 degC but diurnal temperatures can range from 18 to 35 degC). All this, plus temperature measurement vagaries due to LOCATION, accuracies and SELECTION, plus computer averaging program adequacies makes real science a difficult achievement. Add in the human factors of goals and incentives and we have a very unclear science outcome indeed!
4. Also revealed is the obvious lack of balance in the media and general reporting.

This is a very important social and political concern and deserves global exposure. The lack of substance supporting world-shattering economic controls, including a payment of $AU200 million demanded from Australia, indicates a very poor level of intelligence or understanding by governments, or complicity.

Guest essay By Paul C. “Chip” Knappenberger and Patrick J. Michaels

Despite what you may think if you reside in the eastern United States, the world as a whole in 2014 has been fairly warm. For the past few months, several temperature-tracking agencies have been hinting that this year may turn out to be the “warmest ever recorded”—for whatever that is worth (keep reading for our evaluation). The hints have been turned up a notch with the latest United Nations climate confab taking place in Lima, Peru through December 12.  The mainstream media is happy to popularize these claims (as are government-money-seeking science lobbying groups).

But a closer look shows two things: first, whether or not 2014 will prove to be the record warmest year depends on whom you ask; and second, no matter where the final number for the year ranks in the observations, it will rank among…

Martin Luther King Junior. A philosophy on human behaviour.


Why this topic? It’s inspired by my “addiction” to blogging and Facebook where I have
collected a number of “friends” who have similar ideas to me about justice  and the associated “lack of”, in the modern world.

Maybe it was ever so, but my world is in the here and now, the injustice that is pervading the planet is staring me in the face. My puny effort is to give my energy to the spreading of relevant information on the internet.

Talking of “puny”, how is this for a comparison of really substantial, meaningful and influential philosophy?  (Courtesy ‘Good Reads’, this extract from one of many pages linked here.)

Martin Luther King Jr. quotes (showing 1-30 of 445)

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches
“Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
Martin Luther King Jr., I Have a Dream: Writings and Speeches That Changed the World
“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“I have decided to stick to love…Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches
“There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”
Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches
“Only in the darkness can you see the stars.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“A man who won’t die for something is not fit to live.”
Martin Luther King Jr., The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it, because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“No one really knows why they are alive until they know what they’d die for.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“Forgiveness is not an occasional act, it is a constant attitude.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“There comes a time when silence is betrayal.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“Now there is a final reason I think that Jesus says, “Love your enemies.” It is this: that love has within it a redemptive power. And there is a power there that eventually transforms individuals. Just keep being friendly to that person. Just keep loving them, and they can’t stand it too long. Oh, they react in many ways in the beginning. They react with guilt feelings, and sometimes they’ll hate you a little more at that transition period, but just keep loving them. And by the power of your love they will break down under the load. That’s love, you see. It is redemptive, and this is why Jesus says love. There’s something about love that builds up and is creative. There is something about hate that tears down and is destructive. So love your enemies. (from “Loving Your Enemies”)”
Martin Luther King Jr., A Knock at Midnight: Inspiration from the Great Sermons of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.
“I have a dream that one day little black boys and girls will be holding hands with little white boys and girls.”
Martin Luther King Jr., I Have A Dream
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“We must live together as brothers or perish together as fools.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“Science investigates; religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge, which is power; religion gives man wisdom, which is control. Science deals mainly with facts; religion deals mainly with values. The two are not rivals.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don’t know each other; they don’t know each other because they have not communicated with each other.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“No person has the right to rain on your dreams.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

No wonder he was feared for his influence, sense of justice and his wisdom, by the ungodly who chose to assassinate him.

Martin Luther King Junior was a giant among ordinary men, even above extraordinary men. Certainly above current world leaders, especially those that orchestrate, execute and support  the destruction of honest and innocent people.

He was a religious man, perhaps not taking into account the bigger picture of religion, that is, that other religions have their place in our global civilization, some of which currently create, and all of which have created, unnecessary disruptions in peaceful lives.

So there is a paradox of sorts, when MLK Jnr says that “religion gives man wisdom, which is control”, he ignores the fact that this is not an absolute, there are too many exceptions to give this statement credence.

If he had placed himself above religion, all his philosophy would have been indisputable. It, nevertheless serves as an impressive, universal guide to the whole world, a guide and education for all people to also place themselves above religion, at least that part which is far too attached to earthly fallibilities, and live by logical, humane principles.

This, theoretically would work for “normal people”, but of course there are those whose greed, selfishness and absolute ignorance of civilized behaviour, have no concept of what we are talking about, who will not even stop or slow down to think about MLK Jnr’s words, who do not have the mental capacity or whatever it takes to understand anything except violence as a solution to their problems and/or dreams.

I am not aware of any other person, or organization, that concentrates its teaching(s) on these particular principles and broadcasts them to the ‘rest of the world’ to the extent that it effectively reaches any other than the “already converted”.

As usual, reader comments are welcomed.

ISIS Supply Lines Originate in NATO’s Turkey : Report


Have you ever wondered how ISIS/ISIL/IS was able to spring into the Middle East arena so fully equipped with vehicles and weapons?

Are you still prepared to rely on information and news from the mainstream media?

From ‘Information Clearing House

 

By Tony Cartalucci

November 30, 2014 “ICH” – “LD” – Germany’s international broadcaster Deutsche Welle (DW) published a video report of immense implications – possibly the first national broadcaster in the West to admit that the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS) is supplied not by “black market oil” or “hostage ransoms” but billions of dollars worth of supplies carried into Syria across NATO member Turkey’s borders via hundreds of trucks a day.

The report titled, “‘IS’ supply channels through Turkey,” confirms what has been reported by geopolitical analysts since at least as early as 2011 – that NATO member Turkey has allowed a torrent in supplies, fighters, and weapons to cross its borders unopposed to resupply ISIS positions inside of Syria.

The Golden Trap of Chess Master Vladimir Putin ~ [must read] ~ [Eng-Rus-Ita]


Ken McMurtrie:

A couple of minor logic issues here but the overall picture and summation seems very real. It has always, in recent times, been obvious that keeping the US Dollar from becoming hopelessly deflated has been tricky and has substantially relied on oil trading to prop it up.
Here we learn that no longer can the US rely on this “prop” for much longer.
So this article is a good reminder that the global financial stability cannot be guaranteed.
Also that if we talk about real “goodies and baddies”, the information available to the public is unreliable if the mainstream press and Western leaders are the sources.
Worth a read in my opinion, worth serious contemplation, the author suggests.

“The Golden Trap of Chess Master Vladimir Putin”

By Dmitry Kalinichenko for Investcafe.ru

Accusations of the West towards Putin traditionally are based on the fact that he worked in the KGB. And therefore he is a cruel and immoral person. Putin is blamed for everything. But nobody ever accused Putin of lack of intelligence.

Any accusations against this man only emphasize his ability for quick analytical thinking and making clear and balanced political and economic decisions.

Often Western media compares this ability with the ability of a grandmaster, conducting a public chess simul. Recent developments in US economy and the West in general allow us to conclude that in this part of the assessment of Putin’s personality Western media is absolutely right.

Despite numerous success…

Wanted!–a Few Honest Statisticians, Biostatisticans and Epidemiologists who want to make a difference.


Ken McMurtrie:

Specifically about a particular issue but highlights the issues of authenticity and honesty in the medical publishing and political areas.

Fortunately, the scientific method is a tool to help people progress toward the truth despite their susceptibilities to confirmation bias and other errors.26

Unfortunately, due to a confluence of factors (including political) this has not been done. But unless we want the future envisioned by Robert Dupont and the Drug and Alcohol Testing Industry envisioned in the “New Paradigm” and ASAM White Paper on Drug Testing we need to act now.”
