Ocean Acidification Creates Killer Seas of Extinction


Chile Mass Sea Life Die Off


The Killer Seas Begin — Mass Marine Death off Chile as Ocean Acidification Begins to Take Down Florida’s Reef


We should be very clear. There is no way to save the beautiful and majestic coral reefs of our world without a rapid cessation of fossil fuel burning. And, if we continue burning fossil fuels, we will not only lose the reefs and corals — we will also turn the world’s oceans into a mass extinction engine.

(Masses of dead sea life wash up onto Chile’s shores after the worst red tide in history for that nation. As we witness the tragic carnage in Chile, we should remember that the red tide there, the mass coral bleaching in the Great Barrier Reef of Australia, and the onset of ocean acidification damage to the Florida Reef are all linked by the same thread — fossil fuel burning and a related heating up of the global climate.

Uncomfortable Truths About Banking and Money





Most people like their truth palatable, easy to digest, and believable.  Unfortunately for our emotional needs, some truths are uncomfortable, unsettling, and difficult.
Regarding the United States, the U.K., Europe, and Japan IT IS COMFORTING TO BELIEVE:
  • Debt has increased exponentially for decades, and in the case of the US, for over 100 years. It has worked so far, so we want to believe it will continue for the foreseeable future.
  • Our governments act as if they believe we can borrow ourselves out of debt, spend our way into prosperity, and pretend and extend indefinitely.
  • Every major country has a central bank, so it is comforting to believe they are needed.
  • It is comforting to believe that gold is unnecessary. As per Warren Buffett, we dig it from the ground, and then store it in a vault, where it sits.
These may be common and comfortable beliefs but they are all incorrect, and will be proven false in coming years.
In the US, national debt has increased from about $3 billion in 1913 to over
