“The monotonous cry from the Republicans is that Muslim terrorists hate America and only George W. Bush can protect this country. No one has yet discussed why these Muslim terrorists hate America, because of the problems such discussions will cause certain powerful interests.
The sole previous reasons why Muslims hate America and are making war on us, is because of our blind support of Israel. It is a matter of historical fact that Israel was founded on acts of terrorism as bad as the current Muslim ones and in the end, the victorious Eastern European Jews either murdered the Arab inhabitants of Jerusalem or, with the help of British troops, drove them out of their homes and then siezed them for their own use.
The oft-heard argument that “Israel was the homeland” for the Jewish people may well have been true, 2000 years ago, but the current inhabitants of Israel are not Jewish by heritage but by enforced conversion of nomad tribes in Russia in 800. 95% of the Israeli Jews are from this background, not the original Semitics who forced out of Judea by the Romans.
If the United States were to step away from its blind support of Israel, who is certainly not our friend (they are spying on us as a matter of course and have attacked us militarily before) and main a strict neutrality in the Middle East, terrorism against America and its people would cease at once.
But aside from bombs in airplanes or threats of smallpox infestations, there is a far greater threat facing us today than vengeful and patriotic Muslims.
This threat is far more serious and, like the fake Bush “War on Terrorism” completely impossible to neutralize
It is the radical change in the world’s weather.
A recent satellite study of the Greenland ice cap shows that it is melting far faster than scientists had feared - twice as much ice is going into the sea as it was five years ago. The implications for rising sea levels - and climate change - could be dramatic.
· The Greenland icecap contains 1/8th of the total global ice-mass. The total ice-mass on earth is 30 million. cubic km; Antarctica has 27 million.cubic km; Greenland 2.5 million. cubic km.
· The mean height of the Greenland icecap: 2135 meters; 65% of the area lies above 2000 meters;
It has become clearly evident to scientific researchers, that the glaciers of Greenland are melting twice as fast as they were five years ago, even as the ice sheets of Antarctica ” the world's largest reservoir of fresh water ” also are shrinking, researchers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the University of Kansas reported in February.
The Greenland ice cap has been measured, quantified and qualified, and determined to be slightly less than two miles in height and covering an area the approximate size of Mexico This great mass of ice is so heavy that it has pushed the underlying bedrock below the sea level and recent studies indicate that Greenland might well consist of a number of smaller islands. There is no question in scientific circles that should all of this enormous mass of ice should melt, the world’s sea level would be raised by a minimum of21 feet.. This rise, gradual or rapid, would innundate all of the world's coastal areas and their cities, home to a billion people. It would, obviously, cause higher tides, and generate more powerful storm surges and, by altering ocean currents, drastically disrupt the global climate.
In the United States, low-lying coastal areas in Florida, Louisiana, Georgia, the Carolinas, Virginia, Delaware, New Jersey, the entire eastern seaboard section of New York, to include almost all of Long Island except for Montauk, parts of Connecticut, all the coastal areas of Massachusetts including Boston and Cape Cod will certainly be flooded by the rising sea levels An only 1.5 foot rise in sea level will cause the coastline to move 150 feet inland in low-lying areas, resulting in substantial economic, social, and environmental impact.. If, as is now projected by most studies, the Greenland icecap continues to melt at its present speed, the rise in the world’s sea level will rise at least 21 feet and that is not including any melting of the immense Antarctic ice cap which is showing clear signs of rapid meltdown.
The melting of so much ice, and the resulting addition of so much fresh water to the ocean, will without question, impact the circulation of currents and affect regional climate. And further, if all, or a significant portion, the ice in the Antarctic area continues to melt at its present, the sea levels will rise 150 feet overall.
The actual time span of the rising sea level is not known at the present time. Since the sea level varies from area to area, determining the rise of the water level is not a positive science. However, tentative input would indicate that the sea levels taken at the Azores, Britain, Norway and Georgia indicate a rise of at least six inches in the past twelve months. Also, the so-called ‘Atlantic Overturn’ or the Gulf Stream, has been forced over 170 miles further south from its previous position and has dropped 25 degrees of temperature. This will result in far more severe winters in Ireland, Britain, northern France, Holland, Denmark, Norway, the northern coast of Germany, the Baltic states and European Russia. At the same time, it is more than possible that warming conditions in other northern areas such as Greenland, Iceland, northern Canada, Alaska and parts of Siberia will continue unabated.
Studies initially stated that while the melting of the world’s glacial ice was in progress and accelerating, the time frame of a total meltdown had not been established. Now, with more intensive studies, this period has dropped from an initial estimate of a thousand years to a hundred and finally, the most recent calculations predict that if the accelerating melt rate continues, both in Greenland, Antarctia and elsewhere (Swiss and Chinese glaciers are rapidly vanishing and their waters are pouring into the world’s oceans) the time frame has been lowered from between three to ten years
This subject has been of considerable concern to various governmental and business entities around the globe. This is a disaster that cannot be circumvented
and the economic destruction wrought by it cannot be calculated. Because it is inevitable, the general official policies are that while this might
happen at some very distant point in the future, at present there is no cause for worry. Any scientific body subject to government control via financial support, has been strictly warned that any hint of early flooding will be met with severe economic reprisals and that while it can be admitted that there is some melting due to undetermined global warming trends, absolutely no “fright predictions” are ever to be issued.
Major American insurance companies have taken notice of these coming predictions and, coupled with the increasingly violent tropical storms that have devastated and will continue to devastate, American low-lying coastal areas and have declined to insure residents and businesses in these areas.
If this subject receives greater public exposure, many residents and businesses will remove to higher, and safer, ground but their obvious problem would be in finding a buyer stupid enough to purchase their doomed homes and businesses. None of this takes into account further economic havoc wrought by rapidply rising sea levels. Seaports would be rendered useless, coastal roadways and railways would be put out of service, the coastal infrastructures would be flooded, power, water and sewage systems destroyed and in general, areas now home to millions of people with many billions of dollars worth of residences, businesses and long-established infrastructure will simply be under water.
Herein lies the real reason behind the official denials and muted threats of economic revenge against whom they are now calling “ doom criers.”
None of these analysis are secret and anyone who wishes to do so, can easily access any major information service, like the excellent Google, and see the great number of reports for themselves.”
