Heat Flip

Scientists warn of a heat flip in 15 years.
They have discovered that excess global warming is being stored in the depths of the Atlantic and Southern Oceans.
New research believes it has the key behind the slowdown in global warming in recent years.
The slowdown of average surface temperature rises in the last 15 years after decades of rapid warming, has been seized on by climate change skeptics.
It has also puzzled scientists, who have hypothesised that everything from volcanic eruptions and sulphur from Chinese power stations to heat being trapped deep in the oceans could be the cause.
The new study, published in the journal Science, concludes that the Pacific alone cannot explain the warming “hiatus” and that much of the heat being trapped by greenhouse gases at record levels in the atmosphere is being sunk hundreds of metres down in the Atlantic and Southern oceans.
But the finding suggests that a naturally occurring ocean cycle burying the heat will flip in around 15 years’ time, causing global temperature rises to accelerate again.

POLLUTION CRUISING

Americans are sending one of their worst polluting ships to bring rich punters on a cruise to experience the environmental devastation of the Arctic.
The luxury cruise operator will use a ship that emits three times more CO2 per passenger per mile than a jumbo jet.
This ‘environmental disaster tourism’, which will be the first ever leisure cruise through the Northwest Passage, is for those wealthy few who wish to witness the effects of climate change first-hand.
Tickets for the 13-deck ship Crystal Serenity, run by Crystal Cruises, will cost between $20,000 and $44,000.
The 32-day holiday for a thousand prosperous customers will feature whales, walruses but “no guarantee” – says the company – of spotting a polar bear.
The 68,000-ton Crystal Serenity,
Popular Science has called the cruise “environmental disaster tourism”.
Research shows the carbon footprint of a cruise ship is triple that of a Boeing 747 – per passenger per mile.

WE HAVE BEEN LIED TO ABOUT OUR ANCIENT HISTORY

How old are humans?
The scientific establishment tells us a hundred thousand years.
Creationist tells us seven thousand years.
But evidence is popping out all over the planet that humans could be here for hundreds of millions of years … if not billions of years.
An MIT Boston scientist tells us: “We’ve basically been lied to about our ancient history. The body of evidence, and the amount if it, would suggest that in a free and open society we would learn about these very interesting artifacts, if it were not for the fact that it interrupts our social order.
“Obviously the internet age has made a huge impact on getting the word out. Because as you might imagine from the video, even a book, book tour, and multiple interviews globally, are all not enough to get the word out.
“At the very least we should at least ask the question, as we are the only human species, how come there is only one human species? When in all the plant kingdom there are multiple species of the same genus?”

CHRISTIANIA ANGEL

Peaceniks battle a tyrant to save their freetown.

CHRISTIANIA ANGEL BY JOHN LIFE

A psychopathic billionaire becomes prime minister of Denmark with plans to take over Europe, and declare world war three on China, but the hippie freestate of Christiania stands in the way of this sex mad media tycoon who makes Berlusconi look like a holy monk. Beautiful Freja visits Christiania in central Copenhagen and falls in love with Hans Christian O’Reilly Andersen. She learns that Hans already has three lovers, so Freja explores the hippie Freetown, and greets his lovers – eco-friendly vegetarian beauties. Freja also meets Hans’ young friends from the Christiania circus, who survive by squatting and dumpster diving; living from what they find in skips and garbage cast offs. Hans and Freja team up with the circus jesters to battle the misogynist tyrant, who resides in hedonistic opulence. However, the youngsters will not fight him with guns, but with bicycles, clowns and jugglers. These peaceful anarchists reject careless greed, but can they live up to Christiania’s non-violent ideals when the bully autocrat attempts to demolish their freetown?

DAZZLE EAGLES

Eagles return to find civilization facing extinction.

DAZZLE EAGLES BY JOHN LIFE

BIRDS CALL FOR COOPERATION TO SAVE OUR PLANET AND RESCUE HUMANKIND FROM EXTERMINATION.

Sea eagles struggle to breed chicks on the Long Lake where their species was hunted out a hundred years ago. They are attacked by crows, gulls, swallows, swifts and Black-Nest – an investment banker. She owns a water plane and shoots any bird that interferes with her scheme to develop the lake into a commercial runway. The eagles find themselves returned to a world in rapid change with extreme weather and many species vanishing forever as civilization faces annihilation from melting ice flooding the Earth. Radical birds revolt against Black-Nest for poisoning the sky. However, only cooperation between birds, eagles and sympathetic humans can stop Black-Nest and save their natural paradise. This intriguing political allegory – wrapped around a compelling love story with a side serving of slapstick – is a metaphorical treatment of the perennial battle between those who see Nature as an ally and others who want to rebuild her in their own image. Dazzle Eagles is suitable for open-minded adults and children of all ages. The birds seem to stay with readers, nesting in our hearts, and whistling to us to save planet Earth.

DID RUPERT MURDOCK MAKE BERTIE AHERN ‘PREMIER’ OF IRELAND

How much control has media tycoon Rupert Murdoch exerted in Ireland?
This question is partially answered in this interview with a Dublin businessman, whose identity we safeguard so he can tell you….

“I attended the launch party of the Irish News Of The World in Dublin’s famous Shelbourne Hotel back in the 1990s. The Shelbourne being a fine old lady in St Stephen’s Green naturally attracted Irish business people, local celebs and a bucket load of business suits from News International to the launch. The NOW editor Phil Hall had flown over for the launch party. He became NOW editor in 1995 until 2000 when he was sacked by Rupert Murdoch for publishing a story on the writer, convicted criminal and Conservative politician Jeffrey Archer that Mr. Murdoch did not want published. Also I noticed, well everyone did, flame haired Rebekah Wade also sipping champagne and nibbling at canapés. She is now called Rebekah Brooks and until the phone hacking scandal was chief executive of News International. News International reporters Paddy Clancy, John Moore and local freelance journalists also attended. The happiest group congregated around singer Finbar Furey who was regaling them with funny stories. The then Taoiseach John Bruton was to attend but did not make the party on the Shelbourne’s second floor. I was called into a side room with four NI / News Corps suits, with the most plumy-ist voices I ever came across. Phil Hall nor Rebekah Wade were called into that room, only the suits and myself. The suits stood nervously about, fidgeting, obviously on the edge of panic. The senior suit, a tallish, grey-haired man, held a mobile phone in his right hand. Mobiles were still a rarity in those days and Irish mobiles then looked more like lumps of turf than the slim ubiquitous communications tools of today. But his mobile was sleek, up market. He addressed me directly, stating they had a problem; the Irish prime minister had not turned up for the launch. John Bruton was Taoiseach from 1994 to 1997, leading a coalition of his Fine Gael Party, the Labour Party and the Democratic Left Party; a government that was credited with turning Ireland’s economy around. The grey-haired suit asked me what other politicians were in attendance. I told them Mary Harney, leader of the small Progressive Democrats pro-business party was inside enjoying their hospitality and as I had walked to the inside room I had noticed Bertie Ahern walking up the stairs to the party. I had to explain to the NI / News Corp suits that Bertie Ahern had become leader of the opposition Fianna Fail Party (1994). Then we stood in silence until the mobile rang. The senior suit answered: “Hello, Rupert.” We could all clearly hear that commanding Australian voice ask how the launch of his new Irish version of the NOW was going. It sounded like he was on some jet, on some trans ocean or trans continental flight. The senior suit was very very nervous and he began to shake when Mr. Murdoch asked what the Irish premier had said. The senior suit explained: “Prime minister Bruton has sent his apologies. He cannot attend because of business of State.” There then followed a silence so thick that a hacksaw could not cut a way through it. Then came a sterner voiced Mr. Murdoch asking what politicians were present. The senior suit looked at me like a wee boy pleading for help before he peed in his pants. I again stated that Ms Harney and Bertie Ahern were present and explained who they were. The senior suit replayed, as I spoke, repeating word for word into the mobile. Again there was a silence before Mr. Murdoch said this Bertie Ahern will be the next premier of Ireland. The suits all nodded in agreement as if taking an order from God on high. The three to four minute mobile call ended and we all trooped back to the party which ended that night, still downing champagne, in Dublin’s most exclusive night club, Lillie’s Bordello. But at that moment I never attached a significance to the mobile call but as history unfolded Bertie Ahern within a short time became ‘premier’ of Ireland, and some could say it was in no small thanks to NI newspapers (the Irish Sun, Irish News Of The World, Sunday Times, The Times and of course Sky) backing Fianna Fail in the 1997 general election. Bertie Ahern became not just ‘premier’ of the Republic of Ireland but subsequently also became a columnist with the News of the World and his youngest daughter landed a book deal that propelled her into international fame and onto the best-seller lists. I never released the import of that mobile call. Thanks to Mr. Murdoch, Bertie Ahern became ‘premier’ of Ireland and went on to bankrupt the country. I wish I never had walked into that room.”

WORLD’S OLDEST EEL FOUND DEAD IN SWEDISH WELL

WORLD’S OLDEST EEL FOUND DEAD IN SWEDISH WELL
When Åle entered the world in 1859, Napoleon III was King of France, and work had just started on the Suez Canal.
But in the little Swedish fishing town of Brantevik, the eel thought to be the oldest in the world has just slithered his last.
Tomas Kjellman, the owner of the well where Åle lived out his long life, told thelocal.se of his memories of the 155 year-old fish.
“My family bought the cottage in 1962, and we always knew the housepet was included,” Mr Kjellman said.
Before public water systems were developed in the 1960s, it was common practice to drop eels in to household wells to get rid of flies and bugs.
“Eels normally only live to be seven years old, they usually get so fat and their intestinal canals stop working. But this one just lived and lived and lived,” said Mr Kjellman, according to: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/sweden/11023470/Swedish-eel-slithers-its-last-after-155-years.html

TIGER SNATCHES WIFE IN FRONT OF HER HUSBAND

A Bengal tiger snatched a woman and dragged her away into the forest in front of her husband last Friday.
They were trying to catch crabs in a shallow river in West Bengal when the tiger pounced and dragged her into thick mangrove undergrowth of the Pirkhali Forest – an area known for tiger attacks – as her husband looked on helplessly.
After he reported the attack, forest guards searched for the woman, but couldn’t find any trace of her, forest official Nabin Chandra Bahunguna said.
The attack happened in the Sunderbans, India’s vast and tangled mangrove forest where the Ganges River empties into the Bay of Bengal.
It was the sixth tiger attack this year in India’s Sunderbans mangrove forest.
