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

plastic.ocean.toxic_occupycorporatism

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. Chris Boulton, lead author…

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

Orig.src.Susanne.Posel.Daily.News- denton.fracking.ban.texas.oil.gas.lawsuit_occupycorporatism

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…

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

ocean.acid.global.cooling01_occupycorporatism

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

Orig.src.Susanne.Posel.Daily.News- acid.ocean.alaska.noaa.un.co2_occupycorporatism

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…
