The Great Awakening Speech that deserves much more attention. Empowers and invites humanity to change the way it thinks and perceives reality. On 9-11-2011 The ‘tracker of truth’ Mike Ruppert evoked a powerful, inspiring, selfless message of incorruptible truth and awareness; shining a bright light in an age of darkness and deceit.
One of the popular myths about Peak Oil is that previous predictions about “oil running out” were supposedly wrong and therefore we should not pay attention to concerns about the depletion of concentrated fossil fuels. This fiction ignores the fact that the best estimates about Peak were extremely accurate
I seen a series of videos originally shared by http://www.youtube.com/user/peoplesta… and what I seen was a real eye opener. The fat cats of Wall Street don’t give a s*$%! about people, they just care about that stuff on paper that was created basically out of thin air. Right from the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913, the fat cats and banking elites have plagued human society, and need to be dealt with!
If you would rather see the video in smaller chunks, you can see them on peoplestandupca’s channel. I just stitched them together to make it more seamless and easy to watch.
Full credit to peoplestandupca for providing such an eye-opening series of videos. It is good to see others out there that are willing to explore con jobs like this in such depth and detail.
Blind Spot is a documentary film that illustrates the current oil and energy crisis that our world is facing. Whatever measures of ignorance, greed, wishful thinking, we have put ourselves at a crossroads, which offer two paths with dire consequences. If we continue to burn fossil fuels we will choke the life out of the planet and if we don’t our way of life will collapse.
There is no panic in this film ….just an absolute and stark reality that we either choose to face or not.
But you will not see this film on network TV or just about nowhere else. It challenges too directly fundamental assumptions on which the continuance of our corporate economy and our consumer culture is based — in particular, the unquestioned assumption that growth is good, that “expansion is tantamount to progress.”
“Blind Spot” makes no attempt to soften or sweeten its message in order to make it palatable to a wider audience. The people interviewed are blunt about the seriousness of the problems we face: peak oil; climate change; population overshoot and a diminished environment.
Whatever temporary progress we make in curbing these problems is quickly nullified by a growing population and the fact that increased technological efficiency in the use of a resource tends to increase (rather than decrease) the rate at which that resource is consumed.
These problems have potentially catastrophic consequences for the entire human species; indeed, we run the risk that positive feedback loops will develop that take matters completely outside our control.
And we’ve largely squandered the last forty years, precious time that we desperately needed to plan for these imminent crises.

Andrew Revkin says farewell to the environment beat at the New York Times newspaper, and hello to his new role as online communicator, author, and academic. He talks with host Jeff Young about ushering in a transformation in how the public understands climate change, and how human beings as a species might be finally learning to grow up. (7:55)
And to greece where a big forest fire is raging out of control for a second day. Emergency workers are working around the clock to control the fires.
A fireman battles to hold back a wall of flames in central Greece.
For a second day, dozens of firefighters, backed by helicopters, are working hard to check the advance of a huge forest fire outside the ancient city of Thebes.
So far the blaze has devoured olive groves, isolated farmhouses and threatened nearby villages.
It’s just one of hundreds of wildfires which has hit the mediterranean country this summer.
But, unlike previous years, emergency services have been quick to bring them under control without serious damage to homes or lives
Wildfires are frequent in Greece and are often triggered by high temperatures, drought or arson.
Two years ago, Greece declared a state of emergency during a 10-day blaze that left scores dead.
A reprieve for the villages lying in the path of this fire – a change in wind direction is keeping the flames away – at least for now.
A state of emergency has been declared in Ukrainian capital, Kiev, on Saturday as the city is paralyzed by heavy snowfall and blizzard totally abnormal for March. Heavy snowfalls are already in full swing in Russia’s Tula and Lipetsk Regions, with snow-clearing vehicles taking to the streets, while the city of Kursk, the administrative center of Kursk Region, which borders Ukraine, was forced to declare the state of emergency too – READ MORE http://on.rt.com/b54d43
In the past century, as the climate has warmed, sea level rise has accelerated. Scientists predict it will only increase, and they’re studying changes in the ocean and land to better understand how and why the water is rising.
Welcome to Transition Studies. To prosper for very much longer on the changing Earth humankind will need to move beyond its current fossil-fueled civilization toward one that is sustained on recycled materials and renewable energy. This is not a trivial shift. It will require a major transition in all aspects of our lives.
This weblog explores the transition to a sustainable future on our finite planet. It provides links to current news, key documents from government sources and non-governmental organizations, as well as video documentaries about climate change, environmental ethics and environmental justice concerns.
The links are listed here to be used in whatever manner they may be helpful in public information campaigns, course preparation, teaching, letter-writing, lectures, class presentations, policy discussions, article writing, civic or Congressional hearings and citizen action campaigns, etc. For further information on this blog see: About this weblog. and How to use this weblog.
