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

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…

Where’s the Heat? Why Acidic Oceans Are Changing Earth’s Temperature Weather

Susanne Posel ,Chief Editor Occupy Corporatism | The US Independent August 22, 2014   Researchers for the University of Washington (UW) have published a study claiming that the missing atmospheric heat can be attributed to a large “sink” into the ocean. Ka-Kit Tung, atmospheric scientist and mathematician with UW teamed up with Xianyao Chen at Ocean University (OU) on this paper to find the missing heat. Tung said: “Locating that sink matters, because it could tell researchers how long our current hiatus might last.” Tung’s team observes ocean heat using sensors placed nearly a mile underwater to measure heat and…

NOAA: CO2 Sequestration Scheme is Killing Our Oceans Health

Susanne Posel ,Chief Editor Occupy Corporatism | The US Independent July 31, 2014   The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has released a study showing how ocean acidification (OA) is altering our oceans and causing irrevocable damage to Alaska’s commercial fisheries. Due to OA, Alaskan communities in the south east and west of the state are “vulnerable” to lower incomes and “fewer employment opportunities” because their livelihood is being threatened. Alaskan king crab and tanner crab are “growing more slowly and don’t survive well in more acidic waters” which is causing monetary damage to the Alaskan communities that depend…

USGS Using Deadly Sonar for Gas & Oil Exploration of Atlantic Ocean Government

Susanne Posel ,Chief Editor Occupy Corporatism | The US Independent July 28, 2014   John Hines is the coordinator of a new exploratory project headed by the US Geological Survey (USGS) to conduct sound blasting to research the ocean floor along the Eastern seaboard in order to predict Tsunamis and underwater landslides; not natural gas and petrol. But yes, they are looking for petrol and natural gas. This scheme is awaiting the final approval by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Haines claims his “research will be low-impact” and will focus on the determination of the US government on…

Why is One-Third of US at High Risk For Earthquakes? Weather

Susanne Posel ,Chief Editor Occupy Corporatism | The US Independent July 19, 2014   The US Geological Survey (USGS) has released a map of potentially hazardous areas prone to earthquakes with percentages and probabilities for insurance corporations, city planners and other companies that would lose billions to a disaster. Mark Peterson, seismologist for the USGS and lead author of the report said: “To assess the risk of where and how often future earthquakes will occur, and how hard the ground will shake, scientists are constantly seeking new data from these regions and using them to develop new ways of modeling…
