Honest Environmentalists Vs Fake Environmentalists

storybrookeripples: OX and dog blog

.

Here are some photos of my oxen and myself showing what a real, live, true ‘environmen-alist’ looks like.

.

Yes, such people and animals really exist and none of them fly to Cancun to complain about how CO2 is destroying the planet.  They grazed at home and worked in the woods.  My carbon footprint is positive, not negative, since I have 20 acres of woodlands and 5 acres of fields.  An NO NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS._

This is real environmentalism, not the fake kind.  Recently, Madonna had to terminate her ‘elite school’ in Malawi, Africa due to the fact that $4 million was spent and not one thing was built.  This is what happens to most ‘charities’ as we see in Haiti.  Right after the earthquake there, billions were pledged to fix the place, millions of kind people felt pity and donated money and…nearly nothing was built.

.

In the Japanese earthquake, the government is building emergency housing which is exactly what a government is supposed to do.  Haiti doesn’t have a government and Malawi pretty much doesn’t have one, either.  We are assaulted by ads from ‘charities’ and other movements which promise to save the world, save people, save polar bears…and most of this is used to make life really comfy with a huge carbon footprint for the people collecting the loot.

.

This is why things really don’t seem to get better.  If we pass laws changing say, pollution standards, things do get better but we always have a pay off.  For example, cleaner air in Europe and America=hotter temperatures since dust and debris shielded the ground from the sun.  Ergo: as we clean up, we get hotter.

..

Paving roads cleaned up dust, too.  So…it gets more sun, dries out more and black pavement is very, very hot compared to say, grass.  The air is cleaner and the planet gets hotter.  I planted trees in NYC as I was part of the Arbor Society.  I also belonged to the Prospect Park group that revived that beautiful park.  Trees are good for the environment.  They cool things off greatly.

Prospect Park on a hot summer day is significantly cooler than the rest of NYC, for example.  Planting trees is good.  The human population of the tropical regions of the earth are exploding in population.  This, in turn, has led to stripping down the forests and eliminating trees.   This is bad.  The solution is better medicine, more vaccinations and birth control.  So fewer babies are born and the ones that are will live instead of dying before 18 years.  During which, they often give birth, by the way.

.

The infinite nuclear power solution is a complete catastrophe as we see in Japan, a first world country that is being ruined by nuclear power:  Radiation fears mount again in Japan after plant workers injured | Reuters

.

Radiation fears escalated in Japan on Friday after workers suffered burns as they tried to cool an earthquake-crippled nuclear plant, while the government sowed confusion over whether it was widening an evacuation zone

.

…China, meanwhile, said two Japanese travellers arriving in the country were found to have very high levels of radiation.

.

It seems that the nuclear core of the MOV reactor that has deadly plutonium (named after the God of Death, of course!) has cracked.  The core is exposed to oxygen.  The energy has to go somewhere so it goes out the crack.  Note also that Japanese anxious to escape this are carrying this toxin with them.  This is why the Chinese are making people coming from Japan to go through a radiation detection system before entering China.

.

This takes me back to Chip and Dale.  They produced the manure to put in my garden and it created really nice veggies.  But it had to sit first and cure.  This produced methane gases.  I was thinking of using their body wastes (poop) to create methane gas for cooking and heating but they died before I could build the holding tank and set up the system.  But it was my plan before my husband became too ill to help me build this and run it.

.

Methane gas is unbreathable and farmers sometimes die, working around or in holding ponds or areas holding cow dung.  At the same time, it makes corn production much better which is why farmers fertilize fields up here in the Northeast with cow dung in spring!  The dung is also warm.  It really doesn’t freeze up since it is an energy producer that works nonstop.  If buried for a million years, it would become oil.

Oil, coal, cow dung, rotting forest leaves and uranium are all things that, even when ‘inert’ are not inert at all but produce heat or energy…when closed off from oxygen, they are silently active but when oxygen is let in, they burst into fire, so to speak.  That is, they have various states of activity levels and to create fertilizer or electricity, we RESTRICT these processes so they don’t burn out of control but rather, have a safe level of heat expression which we use to create steam.

All of these energy systems for electricity turn things into steam that turn turbines.  Water energy doesn’t do this, it like wind, turns the turbines directly.  But most others create steam.  Solar doesn’t do that if it is directly streamed for use but mega-solar energy plants are all about turning it, too, into steam.

Solar energy-generated steam doesn’t produce any toxins.  Nuclear power doesn’t, either…EXCEPT when it does and then it does this until it stops which can be thousands of years later if we are unlucky.  Once humans cease taking care of Chernobyl, the concrete there will fail and water will enter and it will then leave again, as steam.  And of course, pollute the planet over a wide range.

Jeffrey St. Clair: Inside America’s Most Dangerous Nuclear Plant

The more plaintive the cries for Indian Point’s closure, the more money Entergy spreads around to politicians with reputation for flexibility in these matters. Already this year, Entergy’s New York Political Action Committee—ENPAC New York—has doled out more than $25,000 to New York politicians alone. Everyone got into the act from Pataki and Clinton to Democratic congressman Eliot Engel to lowlier foot-soldiers for the nuclear plant, including two state assemblymen; commissioners from Westchester and Orange counties; Bronx Borough president Adolfo Carrion; and state comptroller Alan Hevesi, whose election campaign was endorsed by the Sierra Club….

…Political money isn’t the only tool in Entergy’s bag of tricks. In late October, community activists in the Bronx reported that emissaries from Entergy were canvassing black and Hispanic neighborhoods in New York City and Westchester County with an ominous warning: If Indian Point closes, air quality in urban areas will deteriorate and more blacks and Hispanics will develop respiratory illnesses. The Entergy reps told people that new coal-fired power plants would be built in their neighborhoods and urged them to sign a petition….Entergy is in a unique position to know, since throughout the Southeast the company has targeted its power plants in black neighborhoods, where it has heralded them as bringing economic engines for impoverished communities…

…The petition drive…was run by a group calling itself by the lofty-sounding name: “The Campaign for Affordable Energy, Environmental & Economic Justice.”

The group was supposedly based in Manhattan. In fact, it was created and wholly funded by Entergy.

Here is their website.  It is insane in the extreme.  Seriously:  CFACT

It is very slick and the people, unlike me, get paid really good to write endless lies.  And the stories about Japan are totally insane.  They claim this means the hundreds and hundreds of nuclear power plants are safer because…we are learning lessons in Japan!  HAHAHA.  We learned NOTHING after Chernobyl.  Instead, we were told, this was due to the Russians being stupid and la, la, la, la.

Well, now, it is the fault of Mother Nature being herself.  If She didn’t exist and this were a static planet, then all would be well, la, la, la, la.  And renewable doesn’t work because we like to fly through the air, race cars and light up cities to the nth degree!  We don’t want to stop doing this so we should use dangerous nuclear power to keep on doing dumb, useless things.

Here is one article I find rather interesting:  Nuclear safety: Reactors that can’t meltdown | CFACT

So far, all assurances that nuclear plants will not melt down have proven to be wishful thinking.  They are inherently unsafe.  By this, I mean, all nuclear power plants will be destroyed eventually in wars.  Why do I say this?  History tells me this!  All the places that now have nuclear plants have had raging, out of control, deadly, wild wars in the last 500 years sinc the invention of gunpowder!

Since one of these nuclear power countries, the USA, has nuked another one, Japan, in the past, this is even more pressing an issue.  This will happen in the future because this is how human history operates: anything that happened in the past can and will happen in the future.  Otherwise, why bother with history?  It would be meaningless.  Instead, it is a powerful teacher.  One we dare not ignore.

    The one part I admire in you is that you really live as you preach. Not like all those hypocrites flying around spending humongous amounts of resources and claiming to fight against “global warming”.

    What do you get, when the old soviet media “Pravda” turns to occultism?

    Society » Anomalous phenomena
    Third World War to begin during Winter Games in 2014
    25.03.2011

    On March 24, well-known Russian astrologists, shamans and parapsychologists gathered to discuss forecasts for near and distant future.

    “The phenomenon that they call the world financial crisis, and which, as they believe, is now ending, was not the financial crisis per se. It was just an omen of the imminent crisis. The real financial crisis is going to take place in the future,” astrologist Aleksei Kolov said in the beginning of the meeting.

    The most impressive astrological forecast was made by Pavel Globa: “Many attack me now claiming that I was promising Russia a quiet year. What kind of quiet year is it if earthquakes rattle Japan. But Japan is not Russia. There will be wars in the world this year, but everything will be fine in our country, except for the summer. The summer is going to be tough: there will be three eclipses in a row in June-July. This year, there will be six eclipses in total. We had such a catastrophic year as this one 20 years ago, when the Soviet Union collapsed,” the astrologist said.

    Eclipses will cause a lot of trouble this year, Globa warned. By the moment of the latest one, which is going to take place on December 10, armed conflicts will occur on the Balkans. Terrorists will plant a bomb at the Nobel Prize award ceremony.

    According to Globa, this year can be compared to 1939 – the year preceding WWII, from the point of view of astrological data.

    Eclipses will be trouble? HAHAHA…since ancient times, the ‘covering of the sun or moon’ has been points of greatest hysteria. On the other hand, this gave birth to the art of astronomy.

    Any star gazer who could predict eclipses was supported by the State and protected. But if they messed up, they were sacrificed to the gods. A dangerous profession but very lucrative if one was a good astronomer.

    You are one multi- talented woman,Elaine..I am in awe!

    I know how to train and run an ox team. A useful antique skill that may come in handy some day. 🙂

  6. Peter

    Elaine, what are the advantages of oxes vs horses for pulling a plow?

  7. Peter

    Oops oxen plural geeses gooses.

  8. wellwell

    Scout and Harry are really wonderful together. I admire your skill with oxen; I get nervous when animals are that big – cattle and pigs are fine, but an ox could stumble or bolt and crush you flat!

    Your experience farming can only be shared by a minority of people because there just isn’t enough land. Global population needs to be cut by at least half. I would like to believe that female reproductive choice will take care of this, but I fear that pollution, disease and war will do the dirty work.

  9. emsnews

    Horses are faster but more dangerous. Oxen are slower but last many hours. They don’t run out of control and you control them by voice and NOTHING ELSE. You talk to them and tell them which way to turn and when to stop or go in reverse.

    They like to listen to other things so you can talk to them and they ruminate about it rather slowly. Horses are much more nervous and easily distracted. Huge oxen can pull huge loads, too. Again: slowly. Big logs, rocks, etc are a breeze for an ox team. They lean into the yoke and then begin to slowly walk. They go better into swamps, too.

    “Among the surprising conclusions: the waste produced by coal plants is actually more radioactive than that generated by their nuclear counterparts. In fact, the fly ash emitted by a power plant—a by-product from burning coal for electricity—carries into the surrounding environment 100 times more radiation than a nuclear power plant producing the same amount of energy.”
    http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=coal-ash-is-more-radioactive-than-nuclear-waste

    Coal releases more radiation than nuclear power.

    We can:
    a use nuclear, save energy and turn to renewables in the next 40 years
    b use coal, save energy and turn to renewables in the next 40 years
    c turn off the lights now

    b means far more radiation released and 1000x the amount of cancers and deaths compared to a.

    Nuclear is the best option we have even with a plant exploding every 25 years.

    We have only 2 choices coal or nuclear for mass production of electricity.

    Solar rooftop energy is 3x more deadly than nuclear.

    But I do think that nuclear plants of fault lines and tsunami areas should be dismantled asap.

    At least the one in Hades, devils point, El Diablo or what was the name of the one in California.
    (nomen est omen 🙂 )

  13. DeVaul

    Dismantled? And what pray tell will be done with all the nuclear crap inside those plants?

    You still don’t get it, do you JT?

    Once nuclear waste is created, there is no where for it to go. That’s why the Japanese were hiding it inside the reactor vaults. They don’t even have a Yucca Mountain site like we do. Neither does France, England, India, Pakistan, China, or Russia. Oh, and we just learned that the Yucca site cannot hold all 72 thousand tons of our current nuclear waste waiting to go somewhere (not to mention the residents nearby don’t want it, but that’s just a political matter).

    If we stop all nuclear reactions right now, catalogue all the waste, transfer all nuclear scientists to disposal units, and conentrate on building huge rockets that can fly the waste off the earth and into the sun, we might have a chance.

    If we don’t give up our quest for infinite electricity, nuclear radioactivity will spread to every corner of the world and we will die out as a species. Oil and coal will run out, leaving behind a huge mess, but nuclear contamination is forever.

    The operators of a stricken Japanese nuclear plant have apologised for a “mistake” in reporting a radiation spike 10 million times above normal.

    Tokyo Electric Power Company, which has previously been criticised by officials for its handling of the crisis at the plant, said it got the readings wrong.

    Despite the mistake, the radiation spike at reactor 2 was still very high and enough to evacuate workers.

    The BBC’s Mark Worthington reports.

    The key part of the above story is that Tokyo Electric refuses to allow independent monitors into the area, so only they get to call the “readings”.

    Like everything related to nuclear energy, they do not want a “second opinion”, and certainly not an independent one, yet many people still believe that “human error” can be removed from all things nuclear.

    Amazing.

    Depleted uranium: a strange way to protect Libyan civilians
    William Hague has said that we are in Libya ” to protect civilians and civilian-populated areas”.You don’t have to look far for who and what are being ‘protected’.

    In that first 24 hours the ‘Allies’ ‘expended’ £100 million on DU-tipped ordnance. The European Union’s arms control report said member states issued licences in 2009 for the sale of £293.2 million worth of weapons and weapons systems to Libya. Britain issued arms firms licences for the sale of £21.7 million worth of weaponry to Libya and were also paid by Colonel Gadaffi to send the SAS to train his 32nd Brigade.

    For the next 4.5 billion years, I’ll bet that William Hague will not be holidaying in North Africa.

  17. DeVaul

    Wow. So we trained his troops and now we are executing them with nuclear tipped weapons. I wonder if the Libyans know we are poisoning their environment? Permanently?

    Despite the change in “leadership”, the US is responsible for 70% of the “heavy lifting”. Why even bother with having a Canadian general in charge, since he takes orders from us? Even the Romans were not this hypocritical. Nor the Soviets, if I recall, but I might be wrong there.

    Eventually, there will be no place to hide from radiation, unless you plan to live underground like the human mutants did on the Planet of the Apes.

    That is just one possible future for us if we do not pull back from the brink. Others are Mad Max, Water World, Soylent Green, and maybe even Skynet. One thing is for sure. The pretty ads with the pristine meadows and pure flowing steams generated by the oil and nuclear power companies will NOT be our future.

    These ads are a direct assault on common sense.

    Please let iPad users opt out of the new format. I can’t even leave a message on “China rolls merrily…” due to format issues. Also, I dont see a recent message summary. Thanks.

    Did this “column” have a point? I cannot find it. Meandering from oxen to nuclear bombs… What was the point?

    ΩΩΩΩΩΩΩΩΩΩΩΩ

    ELAINE: My ox team were old tech animals. They worked very hard and could draw considerable weight and were the mass movers of big, heavy objects from around 3,000 BC to 1900. Now, almost no one in the first world has the faintest idea how to tame, control and train oxen. I do have this select knowledge.

    If the ‘end of the world’ people in the environmental movement and the Christians, etc, are serious about anything, they would beat a path up my mountain to learn my special skills so they can cease using modern electricity, etc. I can teach people all sorts of ‘Amish’ sort of things from how to build a carriage to how to cook without modern stuff. But I no longer live the ‘Amish’ lifestyle for other reasons.

    Anyway, anyone using modern tech while screaming that it is killing us but their favorite tech isn’t killing us always amuses me no end. Especially when they yell that something is killing us. My oxen would be amused, too, since they could clobber careless people with their huge horns…..

  20. emsnews

    I haven’t had a chance to fix things here due to family health crisis problems which has tied up my tech team (the kids) and I hope to resolve all of this soon.

  21. ‘real environmentalism, not the fake kind. Recently, Madonna had to terminate her ‘elite school’ in Malawi, Africa due to the fact that $4 million was spent and not one thing was built.’
    Lets no confuse ‘mis placed charity’ with ‘fake greens’.
