Who Rules America – The Power of the Media


MediaChannelOrg

Published on Apr 12, 2013

The great sociologist C. Wright Mills is one of the fathers of “power structure” studies and he showed that an unelected elite really rules America. Among the ruling institutions that lack accountability and transparency is America’s corporate media. Former network producer and News Dissector Danny Schechter discusses the power of our media and speaks to journalists and media critics in order to demonstrate that what we call news is often propaganda.

Stuxnet (HUNGRY BEAST)


abchungrybeast

Uploaded on Jun 8, 2011

In June last year, a computer virus called Stuxnet was discovered lurking in the data banks of power plants, traffic control systems and factories around the world.

Pandora’s box has been opened; on the new battlefield the aggressors are anonymous, the shots are fired without starting wars and the foot soldiers can pull their triggers without leaving their desks.

Last week the United States government announced they would retaliate to a cyber-attack with conventional force. The threat is real, and the age in which a computer bug could cost lives has begun.

The true cost of oil: Garth Lenz @ TEDxVictoria

TEDxTalks

Uploaded on Jan 9, 2012

What does environmental devastation actually look like? At TEDxVictoria, photographer Garth Lenz shares shocking photos of the Alberta Tar Sands mining project — and the beautiful (and vital) ecosystems under threat.

For almost twenty years, Garth’s photography of threatened wilderness regions, devastation, and the impacts on indigenous peoples, has appeared in the world’s leading publications. His recent images from the boreal region of Canada have helped lead to significant victories and large new protected areas in the Northwest Territories, Quebec, and Ontario. Garth’s major touring exhibit on the Tar Sands premiered on Los Angeles in 2011 and recently appeared in New York. Garth is a Fellow of the International League Of Conservation Photographers

U.N. report details last decade’s climate extremes

(CBS News) CHICAGO – The United Nations issued a report saying the planet saw “unprecedented climate extremes” in the last decade with every spot on the globe affected in some way.

At Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium, research biologist Phil Willink worries about what he sees when he looks at Lake Michigan.

“What’s most disturbing,” he said, “is that when we look at the average lake level over the past decade, it has dropped down and has not gone back up substantially. Not like it has in the past.”

So is it evaporation that’s causing these low lake levels? “Evaporation rates are going up,” said Willink, “and that seems to be due to climate change.”

But low lake levels seem a minor irritant compared to the devastation charted in Wednesday’s report.

The last decade, it said, produced hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico and typhoons in the Pacific that caused $380 billion in damage.

Global temperatures have risen so steeply since the 1980s, that Arctic sea ice is now melting twice as fast as it once did.

About 370,000 people were killed by extreme weather, with many of the casualties blamed on paralyzing heat waves that gripped Europe in 2003, and Russia in 2010.

The last decade was the warmest since the 1880’s. Almost half the nations on Earth broke 50-year old records for high temperatures.

The report said the extreme weather between 2001 and 2010 was not driven by any persistent weather phenomenon such as El Nino.

And indications are that neither the extremes nor their consequences are evening out. For example, Lake Michigan is predicted to drop two feet by the end of this century with untold effects on wildlife, tourism and commerce.

“Even though lake levels have gone up with the spring rains,” Willink said, “they can go right back down and we think that they will go right back down.”

And that, he said, is cause for concern. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-18563_162-57592264/u.n-report-details-last-decades-climate-extremes/
