"...This is an incredible event," said Tony Juniper, director of Friends of the Earth. "The catastrophe [of these] seabirds is just a foretaste of what lies ahead.
"It shows that climate change is happening now, [with] devastating consequences here in Britain, and it shows that reducing the pollution causing changes to the earth's climate should now be the global number one political priority."..."

The Price of Quenching Our Thirst
In 2002, thirsty Americans consumed 189 billion sodas, juice
drinks, and other beverages packaged in plastic or glass bottles
and aluminum cans. That's over 650 containers per person per
year—or almost two containers a day for every person living in the
United States. Sadly, fewer than half of these bottles and cans were
recycled; the majority were trashed—landfilled, burned, or littered
along roads, beaches, parks, and other scenic places.

days of Noah, so
shall it be also in the days of the Son of Man.
17:27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in
marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood
came, and destroyed them all.
17:28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they
drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
17:29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and
brimstone from heaven, and destroyed [them] all.
17:30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.
Matthew 24:20 But pray ye
that your flight be
not in the Winter, neither on the Sabbath day:
The End of our Civilization as
we know it!
24:21 For then shall be great oppression, such as was not since the
beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh
be saved: but for the Elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

Dry /Ice: Global Warming Revealed
by Drunvalo Melchizedek
What you are about to read is going to change your world forever, of
this I can promise you. I actually apologize that I have to be the one
that brings this unsettling news, but you must know if you wish to
survive for what is coming will either be DRY and heat or ICE and
freezing. Global warming has been in the news for over 40 years, and by
this time we have become complacent. Our scientists have come to the
agreement that global warming will eventually cause major changes and
problems in the world, but in their way of thinking it will be 50 to
100 years before we will actually have to deal with the effects. The
general idea is that global warming will be slow and the world will
find time to discover the solutions to the problems. New powerful
evidence strongly suggests that this scenario is simply wrong, and we
had better prepare for another more abrupt possibility.
One of the first hints that something may be different than what we are
being told (especially here in the US) was published in Discover
magazine in September 2002 with the cover announcing “Global Warming
Surprise, A New Ice Age”, “Oceanographers have discovered a huge river
of freshwater in the Atlantic formed by melting polar ice. They warn it
could soon bury the Gulf Stream, plunging North American and Europe
into frigid winters.” That was almost two years ago, and no one
listened. Life goes on oblivious to the incredible danger approaching.
ENGLAND & SIR DAVID KING
Then in January 2004 enter Sir David King. Sir King is the Prime
Minister of England’s chief scientist. Sir King went to Mr. Blair and
told him of the impending worldwide disaster and that they needed to
tell the world of what was about to happen. Tony Blair told Sir David
King to be quiet and not speak. But Sir King felt that this was simply
too important for him to say nothing, so in January of this year he
deliberately went around Mr. Blair and went straight to the American
journal Science where he published his information and concern. Sir
King said in this article, “In my view, climate change is the most
severe problem we are facing today, more serious even than the threat
of terrorism.” England placed a gag order on Sir David King, and now he
is not even allowed to discuss this subject publicly without threat of
Over the past decade, soy foods have become America's favorite health food. Newspapers, magazines, and best-selling health writers have proclaimed the "joy of soy" and promoted the belief that soy food is the key to disease prevention and maximum longevity.
The possibility that an inexpensive plant food could prevent heart disease, fight cancer, fan away hot flashes, and build strong bodies in far more than 12 ways is seductive. The truth, unfortunately, is far more complex. Soy foods come in a variety of forms, including many heavily processed modern products. Even good forms of soy foods must be eaten sparingly-the way they have been eaten traditionally in Asia. Most important, many respected scientists have issued warnings stating that the possible benefits of eating soy should be weighed against the proven risks. Indeed, thousands of studies link soy to malnutrition, digestive distress, immune-system breakdown, thyroid dysfunction, cognitive decline, reproductive disorders and infertility-even cancer and heart disease.
Americans rarely hear anything negative about soy. Thanks to the shrewd public relations campaigns waged by Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), Protein Technologies International (PTI), the American Soybean Association, and other soy interests, as well as the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) 1999 approval of the health claim that soy protein lowers cholesterol, soy maintains a "healthy" image. ...

For years, apparent increases in illness among marine creatures, from whales to coral, have left marine scientists with the uneasy suspicion that the seas are increasingly plagued by disease. Now, US researchers have uncovered the first good evidence that they are right.
In 1998, a dozen of the world's top experts on diseases of marine animals warned that sea creatures seemed to be getting sick more often, with more diseases.

The latter is certainly pumped full of non-water non-yeast non-flour
ingredients. (One of the problems with baking your own bread is that
most yeast is dried, and packaged into plastic bags)
The former, once baked, will taste fresher and better and be cheaper
and more nature-friendly. Plus you can fine-tune your bread into
containing nutritious ingredients.

'WASHINGTON, D.C., Mar 15 (OneWorld) -- Ten years after the ratification of a United Nations (news - web sites) treaty on climate change, greenhouse gas emissions that lead to global warming are still on the rise, signaling a "collective failure" of the industrialized world, according to the Washington-based World Resources Institute (WRI), a leading environmental think-tank.
"We are quickly moving to the point where the damage will be irreversible," warned Dr. Jonathan Pershing, director of WRI's Climate, Energy and Pollution Program. "In fact, the latest scientific reports indicate that global warming is worsening. Unless we act now, the world will be locked into temperatures that would cause irreversible harm."

Sperm counts are falling and cancer levels are rising. Something is very wrong somewhere, but what? The answer, says Hilary Freeman, may be uncomfortably close to home ... Yesterday, millions of Britons woke up to the news that our daily personal hygiene routines could be making us ill. A study at the University of Reading linked chemicals called parabens in underarm deodorants with a possible breast-cancer risk, after discovering traces of parabens - preservatives thought to mimic oestrogens - in human breast tumour samples.
They also contain aluminium and the armpit is a very sensitive and porous membrane that can absorb it. Aluminium is also in shampoo - WHY? They say that aluminium causes Alzheimer's amongst other ailments, so why are they putting it into these products except to poison everyone, make everyone sick and thus maximise their pharmaceutical company profits? - JAH http://i.am/jah/why.htm http://i.am/jah/illumin.htm
This finding comes just a week after scientists revealed that men's sperm counts have fallen by almost a third since 1989. Again, exposure to hormone-disrupting chemicals - including parabens - is thought to have played a large part. Buying organic and filtering your water may make you feel more secure, but it does little to protect you or your family from environmental toxins.
Forget traffic pollution: the average Briton's home is almost certainly swimming in a cocktail of chemicals, many of which have been linked to allergies, cancers and infertility. These chemicals line your walls, carpets and flooring. They emanate from curtains, PCs, toiletries, even children's toys. And, while the products that you rely upon to keep your home clean do wipe out bacteria and viruses, they also spread toxic chemicals across every surface. http://i.am/jah/heal.htm

Humanity could not exist without it - yet in an extraordinary plan that underlines the catastrophic implications of climate change, scientists now want to curb the Sun's life-giving influence to save mankind from its biggest threat: global warming.
Key talks involving the Government's most senior climate experts have produced proposals to site a massive shield on the edge of space that would deflect the Sun's rays and stabilise the climate.
Hundreds of thousands of tonnes of metallic 'scatterers' would be ejected into the upper atmosphere under the plans. In addition, billions of tiny barrage balloons could serve as a secondary barrier to block rays from the Earth's nearest star.
On land, giant reservoirs holding saline water could be built to offset the rise in sea levels caused by the melting of the polar ice-caps. The oceans, too, would be modified to cope with the planet's increasingly warmer weather. Massive floating cloud-making machines would be dotted across their surface while, below, large plantations of algae would be grown to absorb greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.
The theories were discussed by Britain's most eminent climatologists at a meeting in Cambridge last week to analyse the latest theories to tackle the problem of the planet heating up. They included the Government's chief scientist, Sir David King, who warned last week that climate change was the most severe problem facing civilisation.
Professor John Schellnhuber, former chief environmental adviser to the German government and head of the UK's leading group of climate scientists at the Tyndall Centre, said: 'These are exotic ideas and we probably will have to come up with the right mixture. But the problem has not gone away, so we think this analysis is just in time.
'The present climate policy does not seem to be working. We are not saying we have the magic bullet, but this is a desperate situation and people should start thinking about the unconventional. Preventative plans on a larger scale are needed.'
Environmentalists maintain that the solutions are so radical they serve only to underscore how unprepared governments are to deal with the threat. Last week researchers predicted that a quarter of land animals and plants will die out because of global warming over the next 50 years.

An Unnatural Disaster: Global Warming to Kill Off 1 Million Species
Scientists Shocked by Results of Research; 1 in 10 animals and plants extinct by 2050
Published on Thursday, January 8, 2004 by the Guardian/UK
by Paul Brown
Climate change over the next 50 years is expected to drive a quarter of land animals and plants into extinction, according to the first comprehensive study into the effect of higher temperatures on the natural world.
The sheer scale of the disaster facing the planet shocked those involved in the research. They estimate that more than 1 million species will be lost by 2050.
The results are described as "terrifying" by Chris Thomas, professor of conservation biology at Leeds University, who is lead author of the research from four continents published today in the magazine Nature.
