Sudan

Watch the news and you find there is trouble throughout the world in most countries. I really am sick of seeing demonstrations in most countries across the world for one reason or other. Mostly it is the governments who are to blame for this unrest. In Sudan the price of bread has more than doubled due to the government, and this has led to mass protests by the people. In other countries we see mass protests against the government for various things and it is spreading all across the globe.

In Venezuela the people have been protesting against President Maduro for months, and he is steadfast in not stepping down. Unrest is spreading all across the world against the governments that rule, and it is not likely to stop.

When will the Earth return to peace? I fear that this is never going to happen because of the constant truobles in countries all across the world.

We are heading for the destruction of the human race on this planet, not only because of the unrest that presides in most countries, but also the threat of pollution. You may think that this is all rubbish, but I for one can see it coming. Not only because of the unrest in countries but also the contamination of our atmosphere.

Air Contamination In Paris.

Unless we change our policies within a very short time our children will be dying from the pollution caused by us. There are plans to get rid of diesel and petrol cars by 2040 but that may be too late. With over a billion cars and trucks on the road, most of them powered by diesel, we could see people not living to a ripe old age as they do now. Many will die young due to the excessive pollution of our atmosphere.

Air Contamination

I have written about this before, but no-one takes any notice for their lives are all about what they can get out of life. Everyone wants to be rich and afford smart cars and beautiful houses, but this never happens.

It is about time the people of the world start doing something to improve the atmosphere, and put an end to the trouble across all countries, otherwise we will not be long on this planet.

What Will The New Year Bring

The New Year is just two days away and what will happen in 2018? Will the world improve or just carry on as it did in 2017. We have wars all across the globe as we try and eliminate the terrorists once and for all. They have been almost been beaten in Syria and Iraq but will they stop fighting? I don’t think so, for they will travel to other countries like Europe and begin attacks on cities all across the continent.

It is sad a world at the moment and we have to improve it somehow. Even in the Far East there are constant battles with terrorists and it is difficult to beat them. The same goes for The Middle East with the many terrorist organisations, and Boko Haram in Africa.

When you look to the future it is doubtful if the world will ever be at peace. It has taken over ten years to beat ISIS and the battle is not over yet. It will take a long time to eliminate these people once and for all, if that is possible.

In the meantime, we have had one of the most terrible winters in the world and it’s not over yet! Next year we could see seriously high temperatures during the summer and next winter could be worse. It is all due to us poisoning our atmosphere with so many cars and lorries on the road, and decimating the oceans with plastic. Already there are huge areas in the oceans that have gathered plastic and contaminated the seas and it doesn’t stop.

Walking along the seafront in Marbella my wife and I have seen plastic bottles floating in the sea among other things. All left by tourists who don’t care about the state of the sea. We have fish that have eaten plastic and been caught by fishermen, and when they are cut open we find plastic waste inside. We have to change our ways. In many cities you find waste on the streets thrown there by people who don’t care.

The atmosphere is getting more and more contaminated with diesel and petrol cars on the roads. Soon we will not be able to go out without wearing a mask of some sort for the contamination will get into our lungs and cause cancer among many.

There is plans to take all diesel cars off the roads by 2040 but that may be too late. Electric cars are the new norm to replace the current engines but that will take years to fulfil.  Who knows what effect the electric cars will have on the atmosphere? They will certainly get rid of the contamination of our atmosphere but it will take years. And who knows what effect this will have on the health of people? We really don’t know.

It is without doubt a sad world, and we are heading for destruction of the human race unless we can stop it now.

Electric Cars – Not A Good Idea

Posted in America, Australia, Britain, Canada, China, European Union, Germany, Health, News, Toxic Waste with tags , , , , on 04/10/2017 by floroy1942

Electric cars are coming to the forefront of the future, and what is to become of them? They seem to be a good idea in reducing the air pollution around the world, but is it a good idea? How on earth are we supposed to provide sufficient electricity for them.

We are already overloading our power stations with all the electronic gadgets we have, so how are we supposed to provide electricity for cars by the millions. We will need to build thousands of new power stations around the world to provide the necessary power. And what of the charging stations for these cars? They would need to be built by the million so people can get where they are going.

To me this is not the answer, for a catastrophic building programme will need to be initialised to provide all the power that is required by these machines. This will cost billions for every country if it is initiated. Mind you, we could have charging systems in our own home, but imagine what that would cost in electricity bills.

I agree that such cars would cut down the pollution of the world’s atmosphere, and we could in maybe a hundred years get the atmosphere down to what it used to be and save our world from extinction.

Without a doubt, petrol, and especially diesel cars have been polluting the atmosphere like never before in our history. Cities and towns around the world have so much pollution from these vehicles that the general public are suffering. We have to do something about it, but I am afraid the electric car is not the solution. To have everyone driving around in an electric car, van or lorry would cripple the economy of every nation on earth.

The real solution would be to modify our current engines so they don’t contaminate the atmosphere. I think more work needs to be done to make our current engines less polluting. Doing away with diesel cars would be a big step forward, and by modifying our petrol engines so they don’t pollute the atmosphere would also be a big step forward.

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!

Image result for climate changeThe British government is trying to outlaw all diesel vehicles by 2040, but to me that is far too late. We must start taking action now! 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!

“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!

 This is a very nice souvenir photograph of 24 newly wedded couples in Enfield:

 

Just hope, for their sake that each husband goes home with the right table cloth..

 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!!!

Think old & you'll be old, think young and you'll be a delusional old fart!:

 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.’

 

I hope you enjoyed it. ‘Til next time.

Ignorance Is Bliss

Atmospheric Pollution In Cities

I wonder why today’s generation think that our weather patterns are normal? We have areas of the world today where temperatures are rising so fast that it is becoming unbearable. We have floods that have never been so destructive in the past, and droughts are common across many countries of the world.

In Africa for example, people are dying in their thousands because it is so hot and they have no food anymore. We have tremendous floods across the world where people see their houses washed away and many people die. In places like the United States and Portugal the air is so dry that forest fires spring up and reduce them to ashes. The one thing to remember is that we rely on trees among other things, like the sea,  to provide us with oxygen. Even the oceans are contaminated.

Whatever you might say, this is not normal, for fifty/sixty years ago these things never happened on such a huge scale. The world is destroying itself and there is no-one to blame but us humans.

Most of the weather changes have been caused by atmospheric contamination and we have our cars and factories to blame. If we continue like this I can see the end of mankind on this planet, for it will get so bad that the planet will be unlivable.

The sad thing is no-one is doing much to combat this threat to humanity. We have had climate conference after climate conference but nothing is changing, even though governments promise to do something about it.

2017131-115019110-6943-6-atmospheric-pollution

To begin with, measures must be taken to get rid of diesel engines for they are the worst polluters. Second, we need to reduce the number of vehicles on our roads drastically. It is unbelievable that many families have three or even four cars per household. This has to be reduced.

All factories must be made to curb contamination by making sure that they do not pump dangerous chemicals into the air. This will take many years to accomplish but it must be done if mankind is to survive on the Earth.

At the climate conferences all countries say they will abide by the rules that are drawn up, but they seldom do. Life goes on as it always has and the pollution is getting steadily worse. Day by day we see cities covered in smog, and in China for example, people go around wearing masks so the pollution does not get into their lungs. As time goes on this will spread to many other cities across the world.

It is time for governments across the world to make some hard decisions about climate change, for it will steadily get worse as time goes by. It is easy to say “it will be alright in the end”, but it will not. As the pollution of our atmosphere gets worse and worse people will have a very short lifespan, and that is inevitable.
