We Are Poisoning Ourselves!

What is the world coming to? Disaster, that’s what! New information released by Eco Experts shows a map that tracks world atmospheric pollution by country, and the results will surprise you. More than half the world’s countries are producing a toxic atmosphere caused by industry and vehicles way above what the world can handle.

The Most Toxic Countries In The World

The Most Toxic Countries In The World

As you can see, the most toxic are the oil nations who provide the world with this precious commodity. Next in line is Russia and Canada closely followed by the United States.

It has been known for some time that the atmosphere in Chinese cities are among the most toxic in the world, but there are other countries like Doha in Qatar.

To live in places like Shanghai or Qatar must be a very unpleasant experience and your life expectancy must be very short. Already we have seen Chinese people walking the streets wearing masks to try and prevent the pollution from getting into their lungs.

So what does this say for the world as a whole? It means that in effect we are poisoning our atmosphere to the extent that, in maybe twenty or thirty years, the air we breath will so toxic that life expectancy will be very short. The sad thing is that governments the whole world over are not prepared to solve this crisis for humanity.

A group of doctors in London have put forward a request for all diesel cars to be banned from the road because they are the worst polluters of all. It’s a good suggestion, but nothing will ever come of it, for it will be too expensive and the public will never accept it.

American Traffic Jam

American Traffic Jam

It is well-known that many families have three and four cars in America which greatly increases the number of cars on the roads. It’s also one of the reasons why we see major traffic jams on American roads into and out of cities. With more than a billion cars and trucks on the world’s roads it is easy to see where the pollution of our atmosphere comes from.

There can be little doubt that if we continue as we are, the atmosphere will become so polluted that human life will cease to exist on this planet. We are headed for an Armageddon of our own making, and to stop it, governments must come together to solve the problem.

Argentina’s Dirty Trick To Secure The Falkland Islands

The Falklands

The Falklands

Argentina is once again trying to secure the Falkland Islands, this time with the help of the United Nations. After they were soundly beaten during the Falklands war of 1982 they have never ceased to try and gain control of the islands, especially since the rich oil and gas fields were discovered.

Until now they have not had much luck as Britain has held fast onto its ownership of the islands. But now, through manipulation, they have made some progress when the U.N. allowed them to increase their territorial waters from 200 miles to 350 miles, which will bring the islands under their control.

The history of the Falklands is very complicated, but in a nutshell, the islands were thought to have been discovered by various nationalities in the 16th century, but nothing concrete was done about them until 1690 when John Strong named the sound and eventually the entire island group after Viscount Falkland the then Admiralty Commissioner.

The British, having later set up a garrison on the islands vacated them due to the pressure of the American War of Independence in 1774 but left behind a plaque stating their sovereignty over the islands. The islands were taken over by sealers and whalers until the Spanish returned for a time before leaving in 1811. In 1816 Argentina claimed independence from Spain which was recognized by Britain in 1825.

In 1840 the British government agreed to colonize the islands and a permanent settlement was established. In 1850 Britain and Argentina signed a pact for the “Settlement of Differences and Reestablishing Friendship”. Several historians consider this has a negative impact on Argentina’s current sovereignty claim. In 1888 Argentina lodges a diplomatic protest with the UK but the matter is not raised again until 1945 when they claimed sovereignty at the newly formed United Nations.

Argentina has made several attempts to gain access to the islands, until in 1982 they invaded with a military force but were squashed by the British. It is well known that the only reason for the invasion was to distract the Argentinian people from the corruption and bad management of the country by the government of the time. It worked!

Ever since the first colony was set up on the islands the people of the Falklands have said they wish to remain British, and would never consider Argentinian nationality or being a part of that country. It would seem however that the wishes of the people are not considered worthy of thought so far as the U.N. is concerned.

Falkland Oil And Gas Fields

Falkland Oil And Gas Fields

In the last twenty years huge oil and gas deposits have been discovered surrounding the islands, and as a consequence, in  2009 Argentina began a new attack through the United Nations by laying claim to the continental shelf on which the Falklands sits. By extending their territorial waters from 200 miles to 350 miles the islands now fall within their jurisdiction, but only from a deserted island at the southern tip of the country. From the mainland itself the distance is well over the new 350 mile limit.

It was however enough for the idiots at the U.N. to grant their claim, and they must have known that such a decision would cause a giant diplomatic upheaval. They must also have known what the ulterior motive of Argentina must be to gain control of the oil and gas reserves. I just wonder how many Argentinians sat on the U. N. panel?

It will be interesting to see how the British government react to this new provocation.

No More Lollipops For Boko Haram

It looks like the good days are over for the Nigerian Terrorist group Boko Haram. The next time their leader, Abubakar Shekau, goes to the local bank to withdraw some cash for his men he will be disappointed. He may also have trouble if he places an order with Amazon for a fresh supply of AK 47’s.

Boko Haram hit the headlines after they kidnapped more than 200 schoolgirls last month, and this huge blow came from the world’s highest international body, i.e. the United Nations, who have slapped sanctions on the group for its association with al Quada.

Now, if you are cynical of such a move as I am you will wonder how this will affect the terrorist group. The sanctions are an arms embargo and asset freeze, so I guess all this just goes to show how absurd the United Nations can be in times of crisis. It took five weeks after the kidnapping of the the Nigerian schoolgirls by Boko Haram for them to do anything about it.

Samantha Powers, the United States UN Envoy stated: “Today, the Security Council took an important step in support of the government of Nigeria’s efforts to defeat Boko Haram and hold its murderous leadership accountable for atrocities.” Wow! Well in that case Boko Haram’s days must certainly be numbered (I don’t think!).

Burnt Out School

I for one would like to know what effect these sanctions are likely to have on a terrorist group that hides in the jungles of Africa. It’s not as if they drop by the local weapons shop to buy new guns, or make regular trips to the bank for cash now is it? All weapons come from illegal arms sellers, and what makes people think their bank account is labelled ‘Boko Haram’? These are the kind of people who raid a town or village and take what they need, and all the embargo’s in the world are not going to affect them much. The only thing that may be upsetting is they will no longer be able to buy lollipops for the schoolgirl hostages in the local village.

According to envoy Powers, “The sanctions designation would help close off important avenues of funding, travel and weapons to the group.” It is interesting to note that analysts have said it is difficult to say what practical effect the move will have. Well in my analysis, I would say none.

A Less Gruesome Atrocity By Boko Haram.

A Less Gruesome Atrocity By Boko Haram.

I certainly do not expect Boko Haram to walk out of the bush in a week or two with their hands held high as they surrender to Nigerian troops because they are stricken by the sanctions.

The group have been responsible for the deaths of thousands of people in Nigeria since 2009 in their efforts to turn the country into a Muslim State complete with Sharia Law, even though by far the greater majority of Nigerians are Christian. Most of their attacks have been in the Muslim northwest of the country, although many have been made in central Nigeria.

Oil Production In Nigeria

Oil Production In Nigeria

Part of the problem is that the country is one of the richest in Africa because of its oil production, but sadly, little of that wealth has trickled down to the people outside the southwest oil-producing areas. There can be no doubt that President Goodluck Jonathan and his government are largely responsible for this fact as he has not made sure the wealth has been spread across the country to improve the lives of all the country’s inhabitants.

Where people in the oil rich areas are living the high-life, the great majority of the population still live in squalor and that is unacceptable by anyone’s standards. But this does not detract from the fact that Boko Haram is trying to turn the country into an Islamic State.

Since the abduction of the 200 plus schoolgirls, the group have remained firmly in the world headlines as people wait to see what steps will be taken to get them back. In my view, the efforts of the Nigerian Army have been far from satisfactory, but there again, they lack good leadership and a proper plan of action. President Goodluck Jonathan appears to be ‘sitting on the fence’ and incapable of taking any positive action on this problem.

Despite the idiotic approach of the UN with its useless sanctions, which I believe is nothing more than a political move to stave off criticism of their failure to do anything positive. The answer must be, ‘boots on the ground‘ to coin an American phrase.

Boots On The Ground - The Only Way!

Boots On The Ground – The Only Way!

The only way to stamp out this terror group is to have a large international force sweep the area and kill every terrorist they come across. It will be imperative to have the cooperation of surrounding countries like Niger, Chad and Cameroon to make sure they cannot escape over the border to another country like the Taliban do in Pakistan. With one large-scale multinational military action we can rid the world of this group.

Until now the countries of the world have been no more than nibbling at the edges of this type of problem and it is not going away. The Joint American and British actions in Afghanistan are ample evidence of this, for after all these years the Taliban is still as strong as ever.

Decisive multinational action in every country that houses Muslim terrorists is the only answer. Unless they are roundly beaten, and the Muslim world learns that the free world will not stand for this type of action, the problems will persist forever, for it is clear their one aim is Muslim domination of the world.

Senkaku / Diaoyu Islands – The Dispute

Posted in America, Demonstration, Environment, Insanity, Oceans, UN, United Nations, USA with tags , , , on 18/08/2012 by floroy1942

Part of the Chain of Islands

It seems incredible that two of the world’s most powerful economies can get into a major political spat over a small group of uninhabited islands, that with the exception of one or two are not much bigger than a postage stamp, and most appear to be nothing more than large rocks sticking up out of the sea.

The Bonito Factory

The world has had to listen to claim and counter-claim over the disputed islands for the last few months, and there seems to be no end to it. History tells us that the Chinese first recorded the existence of this pimple in the sea as early as the 15th century but did nothing further about them. On 14 January 1895 the Japanese government claimed the islands as part of Japan and built a bonito (a species of predatory fish) processing plant on the islands, and at the time the Chinese made no objections. The business failed in 1940 and the islands have remained deserted ever since.

In 1945 the islands came under American control until 1971 when they were handed back to the Japanese under the Okinawa Reversion Treaty. While under US control, in 1969 a UN Economic Commission  (ECAFE) identified possible oil and gas reserves under the seabed surrounding the islands, and suddenly China started to take notice. Oops! Now money enters the equation! In fact its the Falklands scenario all over again.

Senkaku Islands Location

We have recently entered the period of diplomatic warnings and landings by the Chinese on the islands to claim sovereignty, but how this dispute will end is anyone’s guess. However,  with oil and gas in the mix you can bet there will be a long hard struggle between China and Japan for final control of these otherwise useless rocks.

Latest update 19 August: Now many Chinese people are demonstrating in the streets about something they never even knew existed at this time last year. Talk about a crazy world!

Could We Be Heading For Another Great Depression?

Posted in America, Britain, Environment, Europe, UK, USA with tags , , , , , , on 06/04/2012 by floroy1942

Everyone is suffering from the economic crisis and money is tight as people economize wherever they can, but the worst thing is, in countries like Greece, Spain and many others, the end still seems a very long way off. Because so many people have suffered in the current crisis, it will be very unwelcome news to hear that we could be heading for a total meltdown of the world’s financial systems in twenty years time.

Our Exploding Population

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) predict that we could be heading for a global economic collapse by 2030. They give as reasons for this the exploding world population and our ravenous appetite for natural resources. When you think about it seriously, it does seem likely. Estimates of population growth for 2011 show that 135 million people were born and 57 million died, leaving a population increase of 78 million in a single year. Annually this adds up to a major addition to the number of people the Earth must sustain. Since 1800 the world population has grown by a factor of 700% and it should be obvious to everyone that this cannot continue.

The First and the Last For This Family

As you would expect, countries like China and India top the league for growth, and have already reached the stage where they cannot successfully support such numbers. This is leading to huge areas of desperate hunger and poor living standards among its citizens. India has not taken any measures to reduce population growth, but the problems in China were becoming so acute the government had to impose a restriction of one child per family in 1978. This policy is estimated to have stemmed the population growth by between 250 and 300 million births in the country up to the year 2000 and 400 million from 2000 to 2011.

There can be little doubt, that barring a global war or devastating disease decimating the human population at sometime in the future, we cannot under any circumstances continue in this fashion. The time will come when there are just too many people for the Earth to sustain. It seems inevitable that starving millions will begin migrating ‘en masse’ to the richer countries in search of the necessities of life, whether we want them to or not. You can see the prelude to this in the refugee camps in Africa where the starving are supported by western aid organizations.  Food will become an expensive commodity as the population numbers increase, and global food shortages will no doubt become the norm.

How Long Can We Sustain This

As you can expect, the growing of food will become harder as we work the soil to death in an effort to feed everyone, and this will add a further complication. Today, farmer’s already have to use tons of fertilizer for the soil to support our current food production. Even now the soil is dying because of over-production, for it no longer contains the natural elements that promote healthy plant growth. On top of all this there are signs of what may be coming in the form of drought. This year there are concerns about the lack of water in Spain and even Great Britain among others. So what does that tell us of the future? One thing is for sure, it’s not good news!

The Basics of Life Today

The second major point raised by the MIT researchers was our rampant consumption of the world’s natural resources. Our never-ending greed for more and more energy will eventually lead to disaster, but the sad thing is, no-one seems interested so long as it doesn’t affect them personally. We remain indifferent to the fact that there will come a time when, for example, the oil runs out. Our present way of life  is sustained by this precious commodity for it literally fuels our lives, so what do we do when the last well runs dry? One thing is certain, as stocks finally dwindle wars will be fought over the last drops, for remove the oil from our way of life and we are back in the Middle Ages! Just imagine life without it; no more cars, trucks, boats or ships, no more plastic, no more computers or man-made fibres for clothing and a million other things.

Tornado

Another major factor is global warming, for if current weather trends continue large areas of the globe will become uninhabitable, and again we will see mass migration to areas that are not ravaged by savage storms, hurricanes, cold, heat or floods. When large areas of the world are uninhabitable it will also mean large tracts of land that cannot be used for the growth of food, and so we come back full circle.

We Are ALL Greedy

Mankind has unfortunately reached a stage where we, as individuals, have become so self-centred and greedy that we have forgotten how fragile we are. Our very existence on this planet is solely dependent on how we treat our environment and the Earth’s resources, but sadly, it will take a disaster of earth-shattering proportions to wake us up to the fact. Most people will read this post and not give it a second thought because they think it will not affect them, but what of your children? Throughout the universe we are perhaps a young race, but we must make drastic changes to the way we live if we are ever to become an ancient one!

The Argentine President is Making Herself Look Ridiculous

Posted in Britain, England, Human Rights, Relationships, Royal Air Force, Royal Navy, Security Council, UK, United Nations, USA with tags , , , on 09/02/2012 by floroy1942

As just about everyone knows, the Falklands issue has once again hit the headlines in a war of words between the British and Argentine governments. Now however President Christine Kirchner is making herself look ridiculous just to please the electorate at home.

Argentinian President – A Desperate Woman

Referring to the sending of HMS Dauntless to the islands, and the arrival of Prince William on a six-week rotation, in her latest outburst in Buenos Aries she said, “The question of the Malvinas has stopped being just an Argentinean cause. It has become a Latin American cause. It is a global cause”. She continued, “I have instructed our foreign secretary to submit before the UN security council and the UN assembly this militarization, which is a serious risk to to international security”. A global cause? A serious risk to international security? Really Madam, that is surely bordering on paranoia is it not? It is one ship and a search and rescue pilot!

Prince William Doing His Duty – Nothing More

She also complains that the Prince wears the uniform of an RAF pilot and says he should wear plain clothes. Dammit women, he is in the military and our forces have not yet introduced the idea of going to war in civilian clothes (although this may be another way for the MOD to save money. Hmmm!)!

I wonder what she will say if Prince William is involved in the rescue of Argentinean seamen if one of their vessels gets into trouble and is sinking? I have no doubt this would put her in a quandary, and she will be left standing with her mouth open wondering how to handle it. Such an event would sure as hell take the wind out of her sails.

Argentine P.O.W’s 1982

Britain has, quite rightly in my view, maintained an increased military presence on the island ever since the Falklands war of 1982, and who can  blame them for that. Even President Kirchner admits the 1982 invasion of the islands was a move by the then military junta to divert attention away from the problems on the home front. The islands are 7,000 miles away from our shores and the islanders are British and wish to stay that way.

This is an important point, for the simple reason the United Nations Charter on Human Rights states the inalienable right of people to self-determination. In other words, no-one can force the islanders to accept Argentinean rule, and Argentina cannot force themselves upon them.

UN Security Council – Not Likely to Take the Bait

So all in all, I doubt very much that the UN Security Council will give much credence to this macabre joke by Kirchner. The only fly in the ointment is the United States who have already sided with Argentina on the Falklands issue in this latest round, for their own ends of course! It is now well known there is a massive oil field in the waters surrounding the islands, and once exploration is completed and drilling can begin, guess who will be looking for the lion’s share of the drilling contracts. Need I say more?

Should Argentina win this political battle for the Falklands with the backing of Washington, you can bet most, if not all the contracts will go to American companies. Should Britain retain the islands it will be British companies. That is what is behind this current diplomatic spat, and you can rest assured it will not go away until the oil runs out, and then no-one will give a damn about the islands.

John MacBride – Founder of the First Settlement

The history of the Falklands is extremely complicated, but in a nutshell, it was first discovered by Europeans in the 16th century, possibly by Ferdinand Magellan. Between 1592 and 1690 the islands were visited by various British ships, and were in fact named after Anthony Cary, 5th Viscount of Falkland in 1690. France established a colony on the eastern island in 1764 and a British settlement was established on the western island in 1766 by Captain John Macbride, who was unaware of the French. The French eventually agreed to leave and the eastern island was taken over by the Spanish, ruling from Buenos Aries. Under economic pressures brought about by the American War of Independence the British left the islands in 1776, leaving behind a plaque claiming the Islands.

From Buenos Aries, Spain ruled the islands until 1811 but withdrew under pressure of the Napoleonic wars raging in Europe. In 1832 Buenos Aries set up a penal colony on the island. In 1833 Britain sent a sloop under the command of Captain James Onslow to reclaim the islands, which he did, having asked the Spanish officials to leave.

Port Stanley – Island Capital

So you see, at various times since the 15th century, various countries have claimed the islands, and it was more Spain that occupied them rather than Argentina itself, for the country did not exist during this period, but was no more than a Spanish colony. Britain was the only country to maintain an occupancy for any length of time. During the Spanish occupation it was mostly seal hunters that visited the islands. Argentina finally became a country in its own right after the Peninsula War against the Spanish and was recognized by Britain in 1825.

So if you go back and examine the history of the Falklands, it becomes clear that Argentina has actually little or no claim on the islands, despite all the rhetoric to the contrary. No, I believe the driving factor here is the oil. Currently, we may only be scratching the surface of the amount of oil hidden away under the seabed around these disputed islands, and when push comes to shove, that’s what its all about.

Falkland Oil Fields

The British company that is carrying out the search for undersea oil is Rockhopper, and they have already discovered a field estimated to hold 700million barrels of oil which they named ‘Sea Lion’. The company needs an injection of cash to extend the search and work the ‘Sea Lion’ field, and is currently searching for a partner.

James Hackett – CEO of Anadarko

One American company looks like getting in ‘on the ground floor’ – Anadarko, with close ties to the American Ministry of Defence. Two British and four American companies have expressed interest (naturally), but its Andarko that is currently in negotiations with Rockhopper, having had a meeting with them a couple of weeks ago.

Chief Negotiator of the Islands Penguins Setting Compensation Limits for Oil Contamination

Apparently this has enraged President Kirchner, who sees a golden opportunity of using American muscle to get her own way with the oil contracts as bait, slip through her fingers. It seems from this standpoint, that the best way out of the crisis for Britain may well be to allow some American companies in, in which case Argentina will be completely shut out. Whoever wins the contracts, I hope the islanders get their fair share of the loot. As to the penquins, I doubt they will care very much (so long as we don’t get any oil spills). Like many others, I will await the outcome.

Falklands To Be Handed Over To Argentina?

Posted in Atlantic, Britain, Budget Cuts, Conservative Party, David Cameron, England, Government, Liberal Party, Nick Clegg, Obama, Parliament, President, Relationships, Royal Air Force, Royal Navy, UK, United Nations, USA with tags , , , , , , , , on 15/06/2011 by floroy1942

Not a pretty thought, but its coming unless the Argentinians are asleep!

Admiral ‘Sandy’ Woodward

In January I wrote about the affect the current defence review will have on the future of the Falklands, and this week my view has been vindicated by none other than Admiral Sandy Woodward, who led the task force that recaptured the islands after the Argentinian invasion in 1982.

Related post:

https://floroy1942.wordpress.com/2011/01/27/will-the-current-defence-review-cost-britain-the-falklands/

The Harrier – Even Able To Operate from a Merchant Ship

That he and I are of a similar mind comes as no surprise when you look at what the defence review has done to the Royal Navy. The loss of our aircraft carriers and its fleet of Harrier jets must have caused jubilation in the halls of power in Buenos Aires.

With the substantial weakening of the navy the sole means of defence for the Falklands depends on approximately 1,000 RAF personnel and between 500 and 1.000 Army troops stationed at Mount Pleasant. There were until recently only four aging Tornado aircraft at the airfield, but according to politicians in Whitehall the islands can quickly be reinforced by air from the UK at short notice.

Bombers View of Port Stanley Airfield

Any idiot can see that one Argentine aircraft loaded with bombs could put the runway, and therefore the airfield, at Stanley out of commission, and these ‘reinforcements’ would be ditching in the sea, or crashing on land, when they ran out of fuel. Admiral Woodward made this point clearly. There can be little doubt that without the Royal Navy carrier force the islands are lost.

The most worrying, and sinister development, is that the American government now clearly backs the Argentine claim to the islands. This has nothing to do with the so-called ‘Special Relationship’ the politicians are always crowing about between the United States and Britain, which in my view is now just a sham and only exists for as long as it serves America’s interests. I think the American government look upon Britain as a pet puppy these days, good for a laugh, and occasionally useful re: Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Thatcher/Reagan Special Relationship

Even in 1982 their was much sympathy for the Argentine position in America, but the special relationship (which was then real) between Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and President Regan overruled the general consensus of opinion and top politicians adopted a neutral stance over the issue.

Today we have the Obama administration, and their idea of ‘the relationship’ is different.

At last weeks meeting of the Organisation of American States the USA representative signed a statement supporting Argentine’s claim to the islands calling them ‘The Malvina’s’, which is the Argentine name for the islands. So it is clear which way America will vote.

Clinton at the OAS Conference:

The Falklands Supply Chain

This is a major problem if (read when) Argentina invade again because the Ascension Islands, halfway between Britain and the Falklands, are a vital resupply and fuelling point for any task force, and its an American base. Obviously, refusal by the American’s to allow use of their base would effectively cut off completely any attempt by Britain to regain the islands if we see a repeat of the 1982 invasion. And naturally, that is not counting the fact that we no longer have a carrier force. To put it bluntly, the Royal Navy no longer has the capacity to defend the Falklands !

True, there are plans to build a new force of modern carriers, but the first is not due to be commissioned until 2020, so Argentina has the next nine years in which to invade and consolidate their position in the Falklands. It is fairly certain that should this happen the USA will back the action.

But why? The answer is oil!

Where the black gold is concerned no-one, especially the American’s, have little consideration for anything else, let alone United Nations Resolution 2065 from 1965 which still stands. Item 1 (paraphrased) reads: “bearing in mind……. the interests of the population of the Falkland Islands (Malvinas);”

Read it for yourself if you wish:

http://www.falklands.info/history/resolution2065.html

I was happy to hear the Prime Minister confirm in the House of Commons that the Falklands would remain British so long as the islanders wished it. Needless to say, this statement did not go down too well in Argentina.

It was discovered some time ago that there are massive oil and natural gas reserves  under the ocean close to the islands. There can be little doubt that America wants a piece of the ‘pie’, and what better way to get it than be ‘buddy’s’ with Argentina who for sure will be happy to hand over drilling rights in return for the islands. The USA will get the oil and gas and the Argentinians will also get rich from the revenue’s.

British Falklanders – And Proud Of It!

So you see, now the Argentinians have the backing of the USA, they will have nothing to fear on the world stage when they invade again, so  everyone will be happy, except that is for Britain, and the Falkland islanders.

All nice and neat, well, for everyone except us that is! For not only will our country have been humiliated on the world stage, but the Falklanders will have lost their identity, and we will have lost our share of the wealth lying under the southern atlantic ocean. What price the ‘special relationship then’?

I sincerely hope someone points all this out to our present coalition government!
