MIT’s Richard Lindzen, the unalarmed climate scientist
Weekly Standard, Jan 13, 2014, Vol. 19, No. 17 • By ETHAN EPSTEIN
When you first meet Richard Lindzen, the Alfred P. Sloan professor of meteorology at MIT, senior fellow at the Cato Institute, leading climate “skeptic,” and all-around scourge of James Hansen, Bill McKibben, Al Gore, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and sundry other climate “alarmists,” as Lindzen calls them, you may find yourself a bit surprised. If you know Lindzen only from the way his opponents characterize him—variously, a liar, a lunatic, a charlatan, a denier, a shyster, a crazy person, corrupt—you might expect a spittle-flecked, wild-eyed loon. But in person, Lindzen cuts a rather different figure. With his gray beard, thick glasses, gentle laugh, and disarmingly soft voice, he comes across as nothing short of grandfatherly.
Crystal ball not needed to peer into the future for “we the people” of the United States of America. All we need do it look to the condition of the people of the United Kingdom of Britain.
Their healthcare the NHS being in tatters, and their pensioners being frozen out and forced out of their homes with bedroom taxes that make the escalating cost of heating fuel out of reach for them, and this next example of UK public schools and properties being given away for a pittance to private corporations and individuals who then sell them to the rich.
Gove once again distracting fromthe main point of his educatio reform – which is
In less than 18 months Michael Gove has transferred the title deeds of over 1900 English schools and the land the schools stand on to private companies
In less than 18 months OVER £1BILLION worth of title deeds now in the hands of the private sector
OVER £1BILLION state assets given away for free and accountants in the privatae sector cannot believe the government has also spent £481,750,000 in legal fees alone – nearly £HALF A BILLION in legal fees to transfer the title deeds of our schools to private companies
Now Gove has borrowed £half a billion – and we – the tax payers must pay this back – we the tax payers must pay the interest – to give away taxpayer owned assets to private companies
So when you pass the schools you paid to build, that you held the title deeds for – Michael Gove decided he wanted to give it away free
So who owns the schools now
In many cases Michael Gove has handed the title deeds to your school to Tory Party Members
Tory Party Member Mr Harris and his wife – they’ve been given the title deeds for lots of English schools and the land since Michael Gove became education secretary.
Now I wonder why Philip Harris and his good lady wife’s company has been handed the title deeds to taxpayer owned schools worth £100’s millions – Harris made donations to David Cameron as leader of the Conservative Party. He is considered to be one of his personal friends
Who else in the Tory Party is on the board of companies handed the title deeds to £100’s million of taxpayers title deeds to schools and land in England
Mr Stanley Fink – former banker and “god of hedge fund industry” — in 2009 appointed cop-treasurer of the Tory Party –
Fink previously donated £2.62m to the Conservative party
What has Stanley Fink got in return for being a member of the Tory Party and what return has he been given on his investment in the Tory Party
David Cameron gave him a seat in the House Of Lords immediately he came to power
David Cameron and Michael Gove have also gave his company the title deeds for schools and land worth, again, £100’s millions – via Ark Schools
Stanley Fink’s ark schools – state in their accounts – any “underspends” from their schools – the money goes to the Cayman Islands – via Stnaley Fink’s Ark Stockbrokers
So -Mr Gove – Let’s Talk Maths
When Tory’s are in charge of education –
How much did the goverment increase the deficit by just to pay for legal fees to transfer the title deeds of schools – we the taxpayers paid to build and which we owned – nearly HALF A BILLION to day in just 18 month
How Many members of the Tory Party now have the title deeds to the schools and the land ? – I’ve named just two, you tell us the rest
What is the Value of state assets Michael Gove and David Cameron have transferred from taxpayers – how much did the private companies pay for the assets (NOTHING)
How much have members of the Tory Party made from selling school land in the past 18 month (when they got it for free
How much money, from English Education funds, meant to be spent on Education of English children has been transferred to the Cayman Islands for the schools Tory Party Member Stanley Fink’s company controls
What is the total value of the schools and land so far (conservative estimates to date over £1billion – what’s the real figure Michael)
So when Michael Gove tells us children should read in Roman Numerals – Tory Party Members shake hands and congratulate themselves in abusing power in Goverment to transferring £1billion of state assets and Land to each other – that’s the only Maths Michael Gove is talking in England and they celebrate with champagne at how easy it all is
And of course when a school becomes an academy – who handles the teacher’s pension funds – hmm… would that be the private company – instead of the goverment
And then these companies also get their hands on £57 BILLION every year of taxes under the guise of an educaiton budget
Stanley Fink – his company states any “underspends” they transfer to a Cayman Ilsand fund (the money went into the ARk in £billions in £billions )
Of course Stanley Fink the Tory party treasurer has donated over £2 million to the Tory party – and Gove has handed his private company title deeds for schools and land worth at least £1i87million so far – not a bad return on your investment Stanley
Already the US has sold many toll roads, parks, and countless public properties to the Saudis, the Chinese, and who knows else? Our politicians now must endure lectures from our creditors (China’s ridiculing warning about our defaulting on their holdings of +trillion debts).
When we give the engine to pay the note can we drive our automobile to work anymore? It looks like the elite think they have the best chance of making all of us into their serfs once again. But I hope and pray that we will refuse their yoke of slavery.
Dalai Lama calls on young people to create ‘happier century’ on his birthday
06 Jul 2013
“The present-day generation can create better conditions and build a world where everyone can live in harmony and in a spirit of coexistence,” the Dalai Lama, who fled Tibet in 1959 after a failed uprising against Chinese rule, told the crowd.
“Youngsters of today have an opportunity to build a happier century,” said the maroon-robed monk. “For those of us from the 20th century, there is nothing we can do now.”
The Dalai Lama celebrated his birthday at Bylakuppe, 150 miles from Karnataka state capital Bangalore, where the largest camp of Tibetan exiles was set up in India in the early 1960s.
The spiritual leader spoke to some 40,000 Tibetans who migrated from Tibet and settled in India.
In an hour-long speech, he urged people to “practice compassion” and not just think of themselves, adding that education only has value “when you are compassionate towards others”.
There are on Ixquick Search, “About 1,519,774 results” for “Dalai Lama”, and on Startpage Search, “About 3,689,660 results “. The philosophies of Dalai Lama are incalculably powerful upon modern “first world” western societies as well as upon the eastern hemisphere of the Dalai Lama’s origin.
That the United Nations would incorporate the Dalai Lama for the head of their Happiness Agenda should cause us to delve into our own belief systems to anchor, reinforce, know, and “to thine own self be true”, as Shakespeare would put it, before we become enraptured by what would be called “another gospel” by the Christian faith (of which I am a member).
It would be folly to nakedly embrace Dalai Lama’s “happiness” agenda. (First of all warnings coming to mind is the phrase, “happy idiot”) Happiness, Emotions, Mind-set, these are deeply dangerously manipulative avenues are they not?
This foolish young woman can sacrifice her liberty for her “safety” to be able to go to “the movies, the airport, and the mall”.
wow…..she’s such a narcissist that she actually likes the thought of having her every move watched.
It seems all this gal needs is shiny sparkley objects to make her happy and opportunities to play dress-up and look-at-me……….sad to think this girl has been “educated beyond her intelligence” (Mississippi comedian, Jerry Clower quote).
[…]“We are looking through so much data that I think it makes our fight against terrorism worse,” Paul said.
Want to know how and why America has so rapidly come to resemble the totalitarian society described by novelist George Orwell in “1984,” one characterized by universal surveillance? It’s all exposed in a special issue of Whistleblower magazine – titled “ONE NATION UNDER SURVEILLANCE: Big Brother is watching in ways Orwell never dreamed.”
Paul has been an outspoken critic of the NSA’s massive surveillance program, which came under fire after the Guardian reported last week on the agency’s collection of phone records from millions of Americans.[…]
Edward Snowden Guardian’s interview one more source link;
This introduction opens myriad issues of world powers using the world’s resources and peoples of this planet. This video dispassionately lays out their two pronged one world order struggles. Unlike my personal belief that there is good and evil in the world this Bilderberg group believes their brains and power grant them right of rule despite the methods they “must” use which involve manipulation of peoples, systems, and resources including deception, secrecy, theft, and brute power of war.

The common denominator here in my humble opinion is that these two groups look upon themselves as being entitled to mold the world because of their brains to actually hold, take, and keep power and property.
It boils down to two philosophies of one world rule, both of which ignore and minimize individual rights and preclude benevolence and charity of the Biblical sense. Right and wrong seem not to exist in this realm of world power play.
The Anti Communitarian Manifesto
What is the Hegelian Dialectic? and The Historical Evolution of Communitarian Thinking by Niki Raapana and Nordica Friedrich, 2003, Seattle, Wyoming, Alaska.
Abstract: Background: Communitarianism is the theory that individual rights must be balanced against the rights of the “community.” Its many proponents insist that individual rights and liberties pose a real threat to the health and safety of the “community at large.” The founders of the Communitarian Network began “shoring up the moral, social and political environment” in the early 1990s. Today the communitarian theory is the basis for hundreds of new global rules and regulations eliminating individual rights, yet fewer than one percent of the affected population knows about it.
Results: The progression of recent history clearly shows a dedicated effort to lead the world into unknowingly accepting communitarian solutions. To understand how philosophical Communitarianism advanced itself, the authors traced it back to the original source. Using the works of the leading Communitarian theorists, they followed the path from Seattle Neighborhood Plans all the way to the International Court at the Hague.
Conclusion: The foundation for the communitarian theory is undisputedly the Hegelian dialectic; Part I, a tutorial on the Hegelian dialectic is fully substantiated by Jesuit priests, Renowned Marxists and Pope John Paul. Theoretical analysis, i.e.. (A) Communitarianism did not evolve naturally (B) and it was never a movement that arose out of U.S. society (C) therefore, communitarianism has no natural home in the United States., is further substantiated with 70 verifiable, solid references that overwhelmingly support it. Part II, also heavily referenced, outlines historical events leading to the global communitarian synthesis. The changing duality of the new legal system clearly indicates Communitarianism is a criminal enterprise whose aim is to destroy all legal institutions established under national and state constitutions. Both Part I and Part II establish the aims and shared goals of the lesser arms involved in the global communitarian insurrection, showing direct ties to the War on Terror business, the European Union’s integration under Communitarian Law, the emerging North American Free Trade Zone, UN Local Agenda 21, global sustainable development programs, Regionalization, Faith-Based Initiatives, Volunteer America, Community Oriented Policing, Rebuilding Community and Community Development.
I wrote on this subject about a year ago and a fellow blogger made a comment that I agree with whole heartedly,

Interesting “watchword” Muse. I wonder how their “happiness” compares with “the joy of the Lord”….? It seems their “world” is very “Orwellian”, in that whatever word they use, the opposite is the actual truth, so in this case “happiness” actually translates to be: MISERY
Happiness, it is always interesting to discover what the newest watchword is for the globalist push for all nations to join in the long term sustainable green economy global transition, there’s even a UN drafted Covenant that would supersede nations’ constitutions that includes Happiness as an avenue to convincing leaders of communities and cities regions and counties of the wisdom of their proposals.

Marking First International Day of Happiness, United Nations Academic Impact
to Co-host Event on ‘Happiness, Well-being’ with Permanent Mission of Bhutan (a tiny, poor country with a very low GDP per capita, but ranked among the happiest nations in the world)
To mark the first International Day of Happiness, the United Nations Academic Impact of the Department of Public Information will host, on Wednesday, 20 March, 2013, a conversation on “Happiness and well-being: Essential for a sustainable future.”
[…]The day had a trending hashtag on twitter — #HappyDay — and its own website. DayofHappiness.net is led by Action for Happiness, an 80,000-member movement to promote happiness, and Cheers, a positivity and happiness app founded in Los Angeles.
“The U.N. declaring this day is punctuating a movement that’s been going on for a while,” says Farhad Mohit, founder of Cheers. “People are starting to question the way of measuring progress. More income doesn’t equate to more happiness – and it’s hard to argue with happiness, that’s not a bad goal.”
There was even a Hackathon for Happiness. The H(app)athon Project had people in New York, Indianapolis, San Francisco, Bogota, Tokyo, London and Oslo using the latest marketing technology to try and shift the world’s view of value away from gross domestic product.
“We want to create a personal happiness indicator that can teach people: You are worth more than money.” says John Havens, founder of the H(app)athon Project.
The International Day of Happiness was originally suggested by Bhutan, a country that uses the Gross National Happiness Index to evaluate their progress, rather than a gross domestic product (GDP) model.[…]
Now moving close to today we read Sunday, May 12, 2013,
article from United Nations Regional Information Centre for Western Europe
The UN and happiness
[…]Now why would the UN make a matter as private and subjective as happiness into a public and global one? And, why on 20 March? As with many a good fairy tale, the whole thing started with a king wanting the best for his country. In 1972 the king of Bhutan, a tiny and poor, yet happy Himalayan kingdom, grew tired of countries being measured by its gross domestic product solely, and coined the term Gross National Happiness (GNH).
Bhutan, a country with a very low GDP per capita, but ranked among the happiest nations in the world, then started efforts to put happiness on the global agenda. Last summer, the UN General Assembly unanimously adopted the resolution “Happiness: towards a holistic approach to development”http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=39084 , recognizing the pursuit of happiness as a universal aspiration embodying the spirit of the Millennium Development Goals.[…]
The UN and Happinessplan for we in the developed world is to mentally prepare us to embrace “a very low GDP per capita” such as “Bhutan, a tiny and poor, yet happy Himalayan kingdom”.
UN Agenda 21 wants an equally poor communitarian planet of nations going backward together into a “poor, yet happy” United Nations run world.

International Day of Happiness, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Gross National Happiness
The Brussels based United Nations Regional Information Centre for Western Europe – UNRIC provides information on UN activities to the countries of the region. It also provides liaison with institutions of the European Union in the field of information. Its outreach activities extend to all segments of society and joint campaigns, projects and events are organized with partners including the EU,
All of the above entities are being taken over from the peoples they represent by those who want UN Agenda 21 to level and standardize the all nations into an equality of poverty and dependence upon those few 0.000001% who have formulated this definition of “Happiness”.
Central banks and global corporations own the UN, they ARE the UN (just one example, remember the $10 billion dollars that Ted Turner donated to the UN?), and they are guilty of causing the lion’s share of, ” “The economic crisis, accelerating environmental degradation and growing discontent around the world” that is being blamed upon the 99.999999% of humanity who have been lead into this moment of growing global MISERY.
If the UN Agenda 21 achieves its “Happiness” goals there will be MISERY as never before experienced upon this world…..but………I cannot imagine that this insanity could ever be pulled off, yes, some of it has already been begun…….but really……….you can fool some of the people some of the time………..No, I think UN Agenda 21 will go down as another Utopian nightmare, it’s just too unnatural, never gonna stamp out life and light.
What was the coercive act of parliament in 1774? Answer: The Coercive Acts:
Also known as the Intolerable Acts or restraining acts, were enforced in the colonies in 1774 from England under the rule of King George III.
· These acts are a combination of the following: Boston Port Act, Quartering Act, Admin of Justice Act, and the Massachusetts Act.
· With the main port closed, colonies like NY losing gov. power, and the quartering act taking away rights of landowners, the acts urged the colonies to gather and assemble the first continental congress.
Listen to the sounds, the pounding on the door, the helicopter hovering, the barked orders to keep their hands up, and then the sound of spring birds chirping as this desecration of liberty unfolds surreality down the street into hundreds of families homes as Bostonians are forced from their homes in all states of dress and undress, many shoeless, most speechless and frightened out of their ‘sheltering in place’ homes that they’ve already been confined to in the operation’s edict to wait to be ‘rescued’ by the military/swat/police/authorities.
What King George III failed to do has been accomplished by our own ‘protectors’. Sad, sad, sad, portentous event, shameful for all the world to see this disgraceful drill acted out in the name of ‘safety and security’.
This was a seeming lark for these men, but make no mistake this was no harmless exercise.
Looking out your window and having this pointed at you was nothing less that martial law threatening you with your life if you dared to make a ‘suspicious’ move. ‘Freeze’! Is the implied command.
Your only course of action was to take your shoeless coatless children out into the street to be frisked and searched while the ‘protectors’ rifled through your entire home and belongings.
Saddest of all was the gratefulness Bostonians expressed toward the whole sorry affair…………
Bostonians, This Was Not Cool! Disgraced Desegrated Deflowered Defamed, Paul Revere is Turning in His Grave!
In 2002, Rogers said that Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan’s “reaction to the stock-market bubble has caused two more bubbles to grow: a real-estate bubble and a consumer-debt bubble.” In 2006, Rogers said he was shorting US financials, home builders and Fannie Mae.On November 4, 2010, speaking at Oxford University’s Balliol College, Rogers urged students to scrap career plans for Wall Street or the City, London’s financial district, and to study agriculture and mining instead. “The power is shifting again from the financial centers to the producers of real goods. The place to be is in commodities, raw materials, natural resources.”In May 2012 he remarked during an interview with Forbes Magazine that “there’s going to be a huge shift in American society, American culture, in the places where one is going to get rich. The stock brokers are going to be driving taxis. The smart ones will learn to drive tractors so they can work for the smart farmers. The farmers are going to be driving Lamborghinis. I’m telling you. You should start Forbes Farming.”
[…]In December 2007, Rogers sold his mansion in New York City for about 16 million USD and moved to Singapore. Rogers claimed that he moved because now is a ground-breaking time for investment potential in Asian markets. Rogers’s first daughter is now being tutored in Mandarin to prepare her for the future. He is quoted as saying: “If you were smart in 1807 you moved to London, if you were smart in 1907 you moved to New York City, and if you are smart in 2007 you move to Asia.” In a CNBC interview with Maria Bartiromo broadcast on May 5, 2008, Rogers said that people in China are extremely motivated and driven, and he wants to be in that type of environment, so his daughters are motivated and driven. He also stated that this is how America and Europe used to be. He chose not to move to Chinese cities like Hong Kong or Shanghai due to the high levels of pollution causing potential health problems for his family; hence, he chose Singapore. He has also advocated investing in certain smaller Asian frontier markets such as Sri Lanka and Cambodia, and currently serves as an Advisor to Leopard Capital’s Leopard Sri Lanka Fund. However, he is not fully bullish on all Asian nations, as he remains skeptical of India’s future – “India as we know it will not survive another 30 or 40 years”. In 2008 Rogers endorsed Ron Paul for President of the United States.[…]
But…………the signs are everywhere that this financial age is ending and the jobs and occupations of the future will not follow the post WW2 ‘upwardly mobile’, ‘rat race’ that has lead to our IT world that really does not need humans to function. So to survive our progeny our will have to look at different models of employment, investment, and survival. The future is hot on our tails………..
Traditional jobs just keep on being ‘farmed out’ to anyone who will accept the ‘opportunity’ to undercut the current holder of the job. Just one example from Canada;
[…]Dozens of employees at Canada’s largest bank are losing their jobs to temporary foreign workers, who are in Canada to take over the work of their department.[…]
This despite Canada’s workers’ protection guidelines,
[…]Displacement against rulesHowever, it is against federal rules for any company to bring foreign workers into Canada temporarily if it will put citizens out of work.“The rules are very clear. You cannot displace Canadians to hire people from abroad,” said Immigration Minister Jason Kenney.[…]
(Of course these undercutter job replacers will be disposed of by computer and robotics ASAP in the already begun robot age).
A world without humans? Not happening, but those PTB are crazy to try their experiments in eugenics and robotics, so the illusion of the modern world is soon breaking down to the realities of the thread of life here on this beautiful sustaining earth.
Feminism 2.0 (Sheryl SandbergFeminist “Lean In” Author vs Anne-Marie Slaughter, Princeton professor and former top State Department official) Memes for Worker Bees
This represents a Hobson’s Choice. The absence of a third way, a traditional wife and mother role from this debate seems to assume that is an impossible or passe, old fashioned choice.

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, at the offices of the Bloomberg Foundation, on East 78th Street, NY, NY

and many other mainstream media outlets plus,
World Economic Forum in Davos, Ms Sandberg spoke on the topic at the World Economic Forum in Davos last month.
Sheryl Sandberg, “Women in management positions show less flexibility to move to other companies and new areas of responsibility than men, which hampers careers. Little American boys can imagine becoming president, but little American girls cannot.”
Anne-Marie Slaughter (Princeton professor and former senior adviser to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton)
Sandberg’s focus, women’s lagging ambition vs. men (“We will never close the achievement gap until we close the ambition gap,” she has said), “is a much, much smaller problem than our social and political structures,” Slaughter contends. Sandberg’s message, she adds, “isn’t taking account of the full spectrum of women who are not superhuman and rich. Sheryl Sandberg is both superhuman and rich.”
Atlantic Magazine article titled, “Why Women Can’t Have It All,” last year arguing that feminism — and Ms. Sandberg — were holding women to unattainable standards.
By Patricia Sellers June 25, 2012, “Is this a “face-off,”, as the New York Times proclaimed, between two elite, superstar women about what is right or wrong with workaday lives and careers? “It’s a debate about how we solve a common problem,”….. “Since then, both women quietly developed perhaps the most notable feminist row since Ms. Friedan refused to shake Gloria Steinem’s hand decades ago.”
Betty Friedan’s “The Feminine Mystique,” and Gloria Steinem’s MS magazine worked for the same goal, their methods squabbles not withstanding caused great upheavals of traditional human society were two sides to the coin of male/female work place relations, occupations, and personal relations.
(In a related development the Queen of England at age 86 has just this week announced her support for gender equality thereby opening up the throne to women succession. I wonder why the “old girl”, is doing this at this late date? Speculate, speculate, speculate………in any case there is only one crowned head at a time, not much room at the top…….anywhere in the world, is there?)
And finally that reminds me. There are few corner offices and even fewer penthouse offices for anyone to attain. So why train so many for the race to the top at all? Is it a question of conditioned obedience to the corporate model?
Yes, that must be it. I like honey quite a lot, but I’m not envious of those creatures at all, bee society doesn’t appeal to me in the least! But UN Agenda 21 proponents think the hive is grand. Yet that is a failed philosophy built upon a reprobate misunderstanding of the very nature of humans. In the end we aren’t bees and can never be contained in the planned communities Agenda 21 daydream.
What few women and men attain to the lofty goals of both Ms Sandberg and Professor Slaughter might examine whether the sacrifices they advocate to get to the CEO Suite give life meaning or simply lead to regrets of lost opportunities for more valuable experiences in the wider world of existence for the sake of breath itself.
I don’t believe many were meant to rule, the air is too thin for most up there on the top floor. Even if you reach Mt. Everest you can’t live there very long and would you, if you could……in any event it’s the climb and the companions that make for a successful contented happy life, and sometimes its the view, but often even that is obscured, then a kind word and a hot cup of coffee or tea would make all the difference……………
