Climate Hacking: A Look at Deliberate Man-Made Change Weather

Orig.src.Susanne.Posel.Daily.News- climate.hacking_occupycorporatism

Susanne Posel ,Chief Editor Occupy Corporatism | The US Independent January 6, 2015   Geoengineering, or affectionately called climate hacking has loomed as an option for scientists who want to combat the effects of global warming by “deliberately tampering with [the planet’s] climate” as a more “direct intervention” to our atmosphere, seas and oceans. Those in favor of climate hacking say this “might buy us time to prevent warming above 2C, and that we should look at it seriously in case everything goes pear-shaped with our climate.” One method of geoengineering being used is solar radiation management (SRM). Several scientists…

Are Global Warming & Geo-engineering Preventing an Ice Age? Weather

Susanne Posel ,Chief Editor Occupy Corporatism | The US Independent December 24, 2014   John Holdren, assistant to the President for Science and technology, recently commented that “global warming may be preventing a new ice age.” Holdren affirmed there is “solid evidence exists” that burning petrol and other fossil fuels; as well as “human activities” are producing climate change.” Then the “science czar” stated: “We know beyond any reasonable doubt that humans are the main cause of the warming of the earth’s climate that has been measured over the past few decades. The warming is unequivocal… While the climate of…

New Evidence: The 5 Dangers of Sailing the Plastic Seas World

Susanne Posel ,Chief Editor Occupy Corporatism | The US Independent December 11, 2014   Researchers from the Five Gryres Institute (FGI) have published a study showing that the staggering amount of plastic in our oceans has risen to unprecedented levels. Funding for this study was provided by the Will J. Reid Foundation (HSC) and Seaver Institute (ME). Marcus Erikson, co-author of the study explained: “[Take] 2 liter plastic bottles stacked end-to-end forming a column to the moon and back TWICE. That’s roughly 6 billion bottles afloat on the high seas.” Thanks to microplastics, the toxicity levels in our oceans are…

Early Warning: Atlantic’s ‘Conveyor Belt’ Showing Signs of Slowing Weather

Susanne Posel ,Chief Editor Occupy Corporatism | The US Independent December 9, 2014   Researchers from the University of Exeter have issued a warning that the Atlantic Meridoinal Overturning Circulation (AMOC) shows signs of slowing. The AMOC is the natural “conveyor belt” in the ocean that drives water flow utilizing temperature and saline density to disperse throughout the world’s oceans. The natural flow of heated water is facilitated by the AMOC from the tropics to the Southern Hemisphere to the North Atlantic and is a vital component to the climate and weather patterns of the planet.

Only in Texas: Voters Do Not Have Authority to Ban Fracking? Government

Susanne Posel ,Chief Editor Occupy Corporatism | The US Independent November 6, 2014   Texas Oil and Gas Association (TXOGA) and the Texas General Land Office have filed injunctions to prevent the ban on hydraulic fracturing (fracking) from being enacted in Denton, Texas. Not surprising, in Austin, Texas politicians are drafting legislation to prohibit such bans from becoming local laws. One question big oil is asking is whether or not the Thomas Philips, former justice for the Texas Supreme Court and partner with Baker Botts law firm which represents TXOGA, said the lawsuits will direct the “courts of this State…

Goodbye Petrol. Hello Natural Gas, Fracking & Earthquakes Economy

Orig.src.Susanne.Posel.Daily.News- natural04.gas.epa.co2_occupycorporatism

Susanne Posel ,Chief Editor Occupy Corporatism | The US Independent October 1, 2014   According to reports, the US has become the premier producer of natural gas in the world thanks to the recent shale boom. Statistics show that since 2011, production and extraction of natural gas in the US has risen by an estimated 20%; however America uses as much as it extracts even though production is currently at 20.5% globally. A recent study produced by researchers from the University of California at Irvine (UCI) and Stanford University (SU) in conjunction with Near Zero , “abundant supplies of natural…

Climate Change Means Global Warming Unless the Planet is Cooling Weather

Susanne Posel ,Chief Editor Occupy Corporatism | The US Independent September 9, 2014   In some fields of study when real world observations contradict projections, a new theory replaces the old one. However, in the wacky world of man-made climate change, predictions from computer generated models are foundational and real world observations are considered malleable. To explain recent extreme cold weather phenomenon such as the polar vortex that showed itself last year and is making a comeback in 2014, climate scientists in the US and South Korea state that “as the world gets warmer, parts of North America, Europe and…
