What To Do About The Weather

Posted in America, Britain, Canada, China, Conservation, Environment, European Union, Health, Modern World, News with tags , , , , on 14/08/2017 by floroy1942

In the last few years we have seen drastic weather changes all across the world. Flooding, drought, heat waves and huge storms have hit our planet as never before. These have all been caused by us humans, for we have contaminated the atmosphere as never before. This is all due to the massive amount of traffic on our roads, and factories that pump out carbon dioxide all of which poison the atmosphere. Instead of allowing the heat to dissipate in space it is trapped in our atmosphere by the pollution. This causes temperatures around the globe to rise as never before. All life on the planet is suffering because of this.

The trouble is the majority of people just don’t care about it, for if they did they would stop buying diesel engined cars for a start and begin reducing the amount of traffic on our roads. Some families have three and four cars, one for father, one for mother, and at least one for the grown-up children. They just do not see that so many cars on our roads are causing this atmospheric problem.

As we look into the future we see that electric cars may eventually take over. But the one problem with this is we do not have enough power stations across the world to carry this extra load. Already we are getting close to overloading our power stations, what with all the gadgets we own. So the introduction of electric cars will cause a total collapse of the power generation system. We have to find another way!

Even if we stop contaminating our atmosphere it will take tens of years, maybe hundreds before the world gets back to normal. In the meantime many hundreds of thousands will die from our poisonous atmosphere. Lung cancer is steadily on the rise, and they are people who do not smoke but live in heavily contaminated cities like London, Shanghai and Riyad. You only have to look at photo’s of these cities, and many more, to see the cloud of contamination that covers them.

If we do not start acting now mankind will be almost extinct on this planet, for our world, for the most part, will become unlivable. Would you really want to go about your daily business wearing a gas mask? No, I thought not!

The sad thing is, most people do not think of the future but are content to live their lives as they do, and to hell with the future. But what sort of life are we leaving our children and their children? We all love our children, but we have no thought about the situation we are leaving them. You may not have to go around wearing a gas mask but what if they do?

A quote: “According to experts, by 2100 weather-related disasters could affect two thirds of Europe’s population per year, with yearly deaths caused by extreme weather predicted to soar 50 times from 3,000 between 1981 and 2010 to 152,000 between 2071 and 2100.” Currently people are living well into their eighties but that figure will drop like a stone in the years to come, and all because of the way we are polluting our atmosphere.

You may well read this and brush it off as nonsense because it doesn’t affect you, but there is no getting away from the problems we will face in the near future. Unless every single one of us starts to make changes in the way we live, we will see in years to come major problems for mankind. But it won’t affect us, it will affect your children and theirs.

 A quote: Lead scientist Dr Giovanni Forzieri, from the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre in Italy, said: “Climate change is one of the biggest global threats to human health of the 21st century, and its peril to society will be increasingly connected to weather-driven hazards. Unless global warming is curbed as a matter of urgency and appropriate measures are taken, about 350 million Europeans could be exposed to harmful climate extremes on an annual basis by the end of the century.”

Image result for climate changeIt is said by scientists that Spain will become a desert because of its lack of rain which is getting worse by the year. It is not the only country that will see such a future, but it could also apply to all Mediterranean countries too. Huge swathes of Africa will no longer be livable as the temperatures increase and the Sahara Desert will take over much of the continent. We are not only talking about Africa and Europe, but America will see much the same in its middle regions.

No matter how much warning we get from scientists the people brush it off as nonsense and that is dangerous. We have to do something to stop this climate change, and that means all of us!

The World In Crisis

Posted in America, Britain, China, Environment, Government, Insanity, News, North Korea, President, Russia with tags , , , , on 13/08/2017 by floroy1942

It has often been said in the past that mankind will end up destroying itself. A bold statement if ever there was one. But with the current crisis with North Korea anything is possible. Kim Jong-Un has said he will fire missiles at the island of Guam in the coming three weeks or so, and if they are nuclear tipped the world will go to war.

President Trump’s statement that he will attack North Korea if that happens could be the prelude to a world nuclear war, for China has already said that if America unleashes nuclear weapons at North Korea they will retaliate. Who knows which side Russia will back if that happens.

Map: Guam in relation to North Korea

Guam has been an American military base since 1898 when they captured it from the Spanish during the Spanish-American war. Since then it has been the only base for Americans in the Far East. Guam is very important for the Americans and has become known as the ‘Tip of the Spear’ for the American armed forces in the Far East.  The remote 210-square mile US territory, about 4,000 miles west of Hawaii in the western Pacific Ocean, is a vital US military outpost and host to strategic bombers and at least 6,000 US service members. It is just 2,200 miles southeast of North Korea and is vulnerable to North Korea attack.

It is rumoured that the North Korea is developing missiles to reach the mainland of America and they are close to achieving this. If this happens we could see all-out war between America and North Korea. This could possibly mean that China jumps on the ‘band-wagon’ against America.

Many American politicians are of the opinion that this will never happen, but with someone like Kim Jong-Un it is dangerous to ignore this. He has total control over his country and has a huge army that could invade South Korea. If this happens we could possibly see Trump unleash nuclear weapons on the north.

There can be little doubt that if this happens, radioactivity will spread around the world and we may well see the end of mankind on this planet.

How Much Longer Must We Put Up With This?

Posted in America, Benefits, Britain, European Union, Extradition, Immigrants, Islamic State, News, Spain, United Nations with tags , , , , on 11/08/2017 by floroy1942

Two days ago a bunch of migrants landed on a beach in Southern Spain and made a run for the town. The prognosis is that we will see many more such incidents in the months to come.

How much longer are we to put up with this? The police were nowhere to be seen and none of the beach holidaymakers were in a position to stop them. Considering that most were young men without families who is to say that they were in fact terrorists.

Europe is already swamped with immigrants and they are causing much hardship among the people, especially old age pensioners in Britain who must choose between heating and eating during the winter months. Paying them allowances to live here in Europe has gone through the roof, and many with eight or ten kids, live like kings living off benefits whereas our people are finding it difficult to get by.

We already have millions of migrants in the E.U. and they are costing us a fortune. Long gone are the times when Europe was a stable country and everyone lived well.

Europe is slowly but surely being taken over by these people and the ones who are suffering the most are the European population. We desperately need a naval force from all countries to turn these people back where they came from. This will hopefully put the people smugglers out of business. The other alternative is to capture them and send them all back where they came from.

Europe cannot possibly keep taking these migrants in, give them homes and allowances each month. We have to start taking care of ourselves. Considering that most of them are economic refugees who come here for the money, they should all be sent back where they came from.

I have often said that the United Nations should step in and kill Islamic State fighters wherever they are in the world. But as usual, they do nothing. We have them all across the world and there is fighting in many countries, but all this would end if they sent out multi-national forces to each country and wiped the terrorists out. It is a sad state the world is in when the United Nations will do nothing to solve this world problem.

“I sat, as did millions of other Americans, and watched as the government underwent a peaceful transition of power a few short months ago …  At first, I felt a swell of pride and patriotism while Donald Trump took his Oath of Office. However, all that pride quickly vanished as I later watched 21 Soldiers, in full dress uniform with rifles, fire a 21-gun salute to the President. It was then that I realized how far America’s military had deteriorated. Every one of them missed the bastard …

Car Keys

They weren’t in my pockets. Suddenly I realized I must have left them in the car. Frantically, I headed for the parking lot. My husband has scolded me many times for leaving my keys in the car’s ignition. He’s afraid that the car could be stolen. As I looked around the parking lot, I realized he was right. The parking lot was empty. I immediately called the police. I gave them my location, confessed that I had left my keys in the car, and that it had been stolenThen I made the most difficult call of all to my husband: “I left my keys in the car and it’s been stolen.” 

There was a moment of silence. I thought the call had been disconnected, but then I heard his voice. “Are you kidding me?” he barked, “I dropped you off!” Now it was my turn to be silent. Embarrassed, I said, “Well, come and get me.” He retorted, “I will, as soon as I convince this cop that I didn’t steal your car!”

The commanding officer at the Russian Military Academy (the equivalent of a 4-star general in the U.S. ) gave a lecture on ‘Potential Problems and Military Strategy’. At the end of the lecture, he asked are there questions? An officer stood up and asked, “Will there be a third world war? And will Russia take part in it?”
The general answered both questions in the affirmative.
Another officer asked, “Who will be the enemy?”
The general replied, “All indications point to China”.
Everyone in the audience was shocked A third officer remarked, “General, we are a nation of only 150 million, compared to the 1.5 billion Chinese (an odds of 10 to 1). Can we win at all, or even survive?”
The general answered, “Just think about it  this for a moment: In modern warfare, it is not the quantity of soldiers that matters but the quality of an army’s capabilities. For example, in the Middle East there have been  a few wars recently where 5 million Jews fought against 150 million Arabs (an odds of 30 to 1), and Israel were always victorious.”
After a small pause, yet another officer from the back of the auditorium asked:  “Does Russia have enough Jews ?

 When I was six months pregnant with my third child, my three year
old came into the room when I was just getting ready to get into the
shower. She said, ‘Mummy, you are getting fat!’
I replied, ‘Yes, honey, remember Mummy has a baby growing in her
tummy.’ ‘I know,’ she replied, but what’s growing in your bum?’

The seven dwarfs always left to go to work in the mine early each morning. As always, Snow White stayed home doing her domestic chores. As lunchtime approached, she would prepare their lunch and carry it to the mine.

One day as she arrived at the mine with the lunch, she saw that there had been a terrible cave-in. Tearfully, and fearing the worst, Snow White began calling out, hoping against hope that the dwarfs had somehow survived. ‘Hello…Hello !’ she shouted. ‘Can anyone hear me? Hello !’ For a long while, there was no answer.  Losing hope, Snow White again shouted, ‘Hello!  Is anyone down there?’
Just as she was about to give up all hope, she heard a faint voice from deep within the mine,  “VOTE FOR CORBYN Snow White fell to her knees and prayed, ‘Oh, thank you, God!….At least Dopey is still alive !’

Most people today think it’s improper to discipline children, so I have tried other methods to control my kids when they have had one of ‘those moments.’ Since I’m a pilot, one method that I have found very effective is for me to just take the child for a short flight during which I say nothing and give the child the opportunity to reflect on his or her behavior. I don’t know whether it’s the steady vibration from the engines, or just the time away from any distractions such as TV, video games, computer, iPod, etc. Either way, my kids usually calm down and  stop misbehaving after our flight together. I believe that eye to eye contact during these sessions is an important element in achieving the desired results. I’ve included a photo below of one of my sessions with my son, in case you would like to use the technique. Should work with grandkids too!

How the British have passively succumbed to the Muslim invasion:
When you leave the hen house gate open, don’t cry after the fox has taken the chickens….
Mayor of London … MUSLIM
Mayor of Birmingham … MUSLIM
Mayor of Leeds … MUSLIM
Mayor of Blackburn … MUSLIM
Mayor of Sheffield … MUSLIM
Mayor of Oxford … MUSLIM
Mayor of Luton … MUSLIM
Mayor of Oldham … MUSLIM
Mayor of Rochdale … MUSLIM
Over 3,000 Muslim Mosques
Over 130 Muslim Sharia Courts
Over 50 Muslim Sharia Councils
Muslims-Only No-Go Areas Across The UK
Muslim Women … 78% don’t work and are on FREE benefits/housing
Muslim Men … 63% don’t work and are on FREE benefits/housing
Muslim Families … 6-8 children planning to go on FREE benefits/housing
… and now all UK schools are ONLY serving HALAL MEAT!
All this achieved by just 4 million Muslims out of the 66 million population!

 A certain little girl, when asked her name, would reply, I’m Mr. Sugarbrown’s daughter.’
Her mother told her this was wrong, she must say, ‘I’m Jane Sugarbrown.’
The Vicar spoke to her in Sunday School, and said, ‘Aren’t you Mr. Sugarbrown’s daughter?’ She replied, ‘I thought I was, but mother says I’m not.’

  A son asked his mother the following  question:  ‘ Mom, why  are wedding dresses white? ‘ The mother looks at her son and replies: ‘ Son, this shows your friends and relatives that your bride is pure.’  The son thanks his Mom and goes off to double-check this with his father.  ‘ Dad why are wedding dresses white?  ‘ The father  looks at his son in surprise and says: ‘Son, all household appliances come in white.’ The husband is still in intensive care and the prognosis is not good!!!

I hope you enjoyed it. ‘Til next time.

Heading For Annihilation

Water Stress Graphic Across The World

According to the scientific data, in 1975 we reached the the maximum capacity of the Earth’s renewal of the planet’s resources, now in 2017 we are using 175 times the Earth’s replacement possibilities. It may seem strange, but Australia is using 5.2 times the Earth’s ecological footprint and next is the USA with 5 times the ecological footprint. Down at the bottom of the scale is India with o.6. In total the world is using 1.7 times the amount of resources on Earth, and our planet cannot replace it.

It is no surprise that the resources are getting used up quickly for we have been thinking only of ourselves and not the planet we live on. We are also contaminating the atmosphere at an ever increasing rate year on year.

If this continues mankind will cease to exist on this planet of ours. Through overfishing, over harvesting forests, and emitting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than forests can replace, humans are demanding more from the earth than it can produce, and this will lead to catastrophe.

Another Forest Fire Due To High Temperatures

Our trees across the world provide us with the much needed oxygen, but they are being destroyed by fire because of the dry weather in some countries, and cut down in others at a devastating rate and soon it will hit all of us. The oceans of the world also provide us with oxygen but they are being contaminated as never before.

Natural resources are being used up far quicker than they can be replaced and this too will lead us to catastrophe. “Our planet is finite, but human possibilities are not. Living within the means of one planet is technologically possible, financially beneficial, and our only chance for a prosperous future,” said Mathis Wackernagel, CEO of Global Footprint Network and co-creator of the Ecological Footprint. I fully agree with what he says, for unless we reign in our appetite for more and more we will cease to exist on this planet. When the amount of water, soil, and clean air that our planet can regenerate is spent before the year is up we can expect big problems in the future.

On today’s news it is said that large parts of the Earth, like central Africa, will be uninhabitable by 2040. This is all due to the steady rise in temperatures and the impossibility of growing food. This could also be true of the United States, for it is undergoing huge drought in central areas.

Already we have millions dying of thirst and hunger in Africa, and if we continue to use up the planet’s resources before they can be replenished we will all be in trouble. Most westerners think nothing of this catastrophe, for we have everything we need on hand, but consider other parts of the world where there is drought, famine and a great lack of water and the people that have to put up with this hardship.

On top of this we are using up all the world’s natural resources faster than they can be replaced. Eventually, at some time in the future we will run out of oil and then what will happen. Back to the stone age I guess. Farmers are also grossly contaminating the soil that grow crops in order to make more money. What will happen when the ground is so contaminated that we can no longer grow food? Already our food is contaminated with all sorts of pesticide which in my view is leading to a lot of the illnesses we see in the west.

Governments the world over must make rapid changes to the way we live, or mankind will cease to exist on this planet. Already some European governments are going to ban the sale of all diesel cars by 2040, why not earlier. By then we will be in dire straits as the temperatures continue to rise. Here in Spain we are undergoing a heat wave such as we have never seen before. Temperatures are rising in some parts of the country to over 40 degrees and this is unheard of in the past. With the man-made pollution of the atmosphere these temperatures are certain to rise year on year, and not only in Spain.

It is imperative that we do something to lower the pollution across the globe by rapidly reducing the number of cars on the road and getting rid of all diesel vehicles. This cannot wait twenty odd years, we must start doing it now.

It makes me very sad to witness the madness of human beings on this planet for very few people, especially in the west, don’t even think about the way the world is going and just shrug it off as it’s not their concern. Meanwhile millions are dying all across Africa but who cares anyway, that is their problem.

What people don’t realize is that eventually it will spread all around the world and then what will we do?

Roy.
