"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman."

Bilderberg Group 2014 - An Explanation for Beginners

From You Tube:


"Right now, in Copenhagen, Denmark, the global elite are cloistered together in a meeting shrouded in secrecy. The world's most powerful politicians, corporations, media giants, academic leaders and bankers are gathered to exchange ideas on how to push forward the agenda for a New World Order. Many people new to this issue are perplexed by what the Bilderberg Group is and what it does. Is it simply a meeting by world leaders to discuss ways to help improve conditions on our planet? Or is something far more sinister going on.

The following video has been created to help people understand what is happening behind the closed doors of the Bilderberg Group meeting. Among topics of discussion are the identities of some of the Bilderbergers, secret societies such as the Bohemian Club who participate in stylized ritual sacrifice, the pyramid structure of the New World Order, the brokering of private deals between US and other world leaders - and how these deals threaten our liberties."

“The True Story of the Bilderberg Group” and What They May Be Planning Now

From Global Reach - a Review of Daniel Estulin's book.

"For over 14 years, Daniel Estulin has investigated and researched the Bilderberg Group’s far-reaching influence on business and finance, global politics, war and peace, and control of the world’s resources and its money.

His book, “The True Story of the Bilderberg Group,” was published in 2005 and is now updated in a new 2009 edition. He states that in 1954, “the most powerful men in the world met for the first time” in Oosterbeek, Netherlands, “debated the future of the world,” and decided to meet annually in secret. They called themselves the Bilderberg Group with a membership representing a who’s who of world power elites, mostly from America, Canada, and Western Europe with familiar names like David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, Bill Clinton, Gordon Brown, Angela Merkel, Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke, Larry Summers, Tim Geithner, Lloyd Blankfein, George Soros, Donald Rumsfeld, Rupert Murdoch, other heads of state, influential senators, congressmen and parliamentarians, Pentagon and NATO brass, members of European royalty, selected media figures, and invited others – some quietly by some accounts like Barack Obama and many of his top officials.

Always well represented are top figures from the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), IMF, World Bank, Trilateral Commission, EU, and powerful central bankers from the Federal Reserve, the ECB’s Jean-Claude Trichet, and Bank of England’s Mervyn King."

“We’re dooming ourselves and our children”


The full quote from Frances Beinecke, president of the US Natural Resources Defense Council, following their latest National Climate Assessment was:

“Our leading scientists send a stark message: Climate change is already seriously disrupting our lives, hurting our health and damaging our economy.”

“If we don’t slam the brakes on the carbon pollution driving climate change, we’re dooming ourselves and our children to more intense heat waves, destructive floods and storms, and surging sea levels.”

It appears that our attachment to consuming, to getting and spending, will be the cause of our end – and of course the majority of other species on planet Earth.

An alien visitor might conclude that humankind is collectively insane to risk changing the climate of their only home to a point where they or their children can no longer survive.

However, like most casual observations – this would not be true, for it is not the vast majority of humankind that is preventing the slamming on of the brakes, but a select few – those who benefit enormously from the continuation of the burning of vast quantities of fossil fuel to support our established life style and who block most attempts to replace fossil fuel with clean forms of energy.

These select few are those who control the US Congress and it this body that needs, at least, to pass new laws on carbon emissions from power plants – President Obama’s Climate Action Plan. However, as lead author to the National Climate Assessment, Professor Gary Yohe pointed out:

“One of the few places in the US where it looks like climate change is a 50-50 proposition is in the Congressional record. That is problematic.”

As a result, there is a general pessimism amongst the authors of the assessment that Congress will enact the necessary legislation – because of the power of the petroleum and other industries lobby. Such is the cost of a successful campaign to become elected to the US Congress that the giant multinationals are amongst the few who can afford this process – so it is the candidates supported by these that become elected in significant numbers.

It does appear that this lobby, those that claim that there is still insufficient evidence that climate change is being caused by the activities of mankind, will not be convinced that this is the case until it is so obviously true that any proposed action will be no longer of use.

There are more details from the BBC and in the Independent.

The deadly diesel deception: We were bullied into buying diesel cars to help fight global warming. Now experts say this 'green' fuel is killing thousands of us

From the Mail - although acknowledging that diesel does create less greenhouse gas emission - the article claims the health costs are too high.

"I am no global warming denier. I believe that climate change is taking place and agree that we need to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. But not at any cost.

And the cost of the switch to diesel is terrifying.

Diesel exhaust is a complex mixture of thousands of gases and fine particles that contains more than 40 toxic air contaminants. These include cancer-causing substances such as benzene, arsenic and formaldehyde, as well as other seriously harmful pollutants.

The microscopic particles in diesel exhaust are less than one-fifth the thickness of a human hair, small enough to penetrate deep into the lungs and bloodstream, causing inflammation, asthma attacks, heart attacks and strokes, and worsening lung disease in the elderly and young. The World Health Organisation says long-term exposure to these particles — called PM2.5s because they are just two-and-a-half thousands of a millimetre across — alters the way children's brains grow and could make them less intelligent.

Californian research last year found a link between pollutants in diesel fumes and autism."
