I'm not going to read all this, but have come to the conclusion that so-called "White" people want us all dead. They don't give a shit about a damn thing but money and lots of it. (I know you're not supposed to end a sentence with "it".)

I am really worried about who is building these cities. It sounds like when the Mob built Havana, Cuba. Most of the building going on in West and Central Africa is done by the Chinese. Africans are not building none of their own shit. They let the Chinese do it and in return Africans give up raw materials. http://www.globalpolicyjournal...o-colonialism-africa For example, the proposed city in the Nigeria that was listed in the article. The city sounds like a damn playpen for rich people. ...

What’s Holding Back the Organic Revolution?

What’s Holding Back the Organic Revolution? By Ronnie Cummins Organic Consumers Association, August 20, 2014 There is growing alarm among conscious consumers and activists that our 21st Century food and farming system, and the government-corporate cabal that that props it up, is spiraling out-of-control. Chemical-intensive, energy-intensive, climate-destabilizing factory-farmed and genetically engineered food and farming are destroying not only our health and our environment, but also the...

Human beings are literally out of control despite their pride of superiority and crappy little intellects. They are beasts lost in a feeding frenzy. Otherwise, they would not insanely prey upon one another to the point of mutual self-destruction and environmental collapse. This is the plain truth of the criminally insane human condition.

The God that Whites claim to love so much is going to show them how "superior" they're not. Unfortunately, we're going to go along with them for the ride, which could end up straight to the grave. I've NEVER seen a "superior" white person once his house has been blown down around his feet and beyond when those tornadoes try to blow his ass off the planet or when an earthquake flattens him when overpasses fall down upon his car, while he WAS driving.

Well, I don't think it's the government that charges you for electricity, natural gas, gasoline, or any other form of energy. So, if anyone has anything to gain by lying about climate change, it's Big Oil and all of its agents and representatives.

The difference between weather and climate is a change in the probabilities. Under one set of climatic conditions the probability of a storm of a certain severity might be 5 times in 100 years. Under different climatic conditions 20 times in 100 years. But there would also be changes in other probabilities like record hot springs and summers. The bad thing is if that if the rise in CO2 is triggering this then not in hundreds of thousands of years has CO2 risen so fast. We are in a new...

Climate change will always play a role in human affairs. The Little Ice Age between 1300 to 1870 caused a lot of turning points in history, wars, famines, conquests, pestilence. 1816 was a year without summer many froze and starved to death. The Little Ice Age came about because of 2 very long stretches of low to none sun spot activity and a number of major tropical volcanoes eruptions at least 4 major ones that spilled a lot of ash in the atmosphere blocking sun rays from reaching the...

Our ancestors believe that the earth is a living being. If that is true, then this living being is doing what all life forms do when under attack, and that is to send out signals to all its defenders to counter-attack and destroy invaders and parasites that are attempting to destroy it. Right now, humanity is surely being perceived by this earth/planet, as a deadly germ, a virus, a disease, that is must [cure] rid itself of.
