Speak Out To Stop the TPP/Save the Grand Canyon/Ban Fracking on Public Lands

The secretive and disastrous TPP is in the House. Although Fast Track was blocked in the Senate, it’s yet to be dropped by the House.

Public Citizen is running a campaign to send letters to House representatives — You can send a letter from their website.

“We’ve seen the damaging effects of the so-called “free” trade deals of the past which send our jobs overseas, undermine protections for workers, the environment and consumers. The U.S. is currently negotiating the most threatening of all trade agreements: the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) — the biggest and most dangerous deal since NAFTA and the WTO.”

EarthJustice is running a petition on MoveOn.org to save the Grand Canyon from mega development–please take a look and sign.

“The Forest Service is currently weighing a permit application from the tiny Town of Tusayan, Arizona, to improve roads and build utilities in the Kaibab National Forest to enable development of a sprawling housing and commercial resort complex on the doorstep of Grand Canyon National Park.

Tell the Forest Service to reject this damaging development proposal now.

The purpose of the proposed roads, sewers, water and other utilities is to literally pave the way for construction of a huge development benefiting Italian developer, Gruppo Stilo USA, at the expense of Grand Canyon National Park.

Because the development may tap and mine groundwater that feeds creeks, springs and seeps in the Grand Canyon, the National Park Service has labeled the project one of the two biggest threats to the park in its nearly 100-year history.”

Food and Water Watch is running a campaign to Ban Fracking on Public Landsplease drop in to sign.  fracking

Update: U.S. Representative Mark Pocan re-introduced the bill to ban fracking on public lands (Earth Day – 4/22/15).

Fracking has already caused serious damage to our public lands, particularly in the areas that serve to buffer America’s most precious national parks and monuments. By the end of 2014, oil and gas companies had leases on over 34 million acres of public land, and over 200 million more acres are currently being targeted for drilling.

No amount of regulation will protect us or our public lands from the impacts of fracking. Regulated fracking still results in harm to people’s health, accidental spills of toxic waste, air pollution, earthquakes, drinking water contamination, habitat destruction and worsening climate change.

The only way to protect ourselves and our land from the risks of fracking is to ban it altogether.

 

 

 

 

 

Why is Geo-Engineering Not Being Talked About Openly?

What do the geo-engineers have to hide? Spraying for supposed “geo-engineering” which dumps thousands of tons of nano-particulate heavy metals and dangerous chemical compounds into our atmosphere, right above our heads — ostensibly to engage in “Solar Radiation Management” (yes, that would suggest Managing the Sun) and into our yards, our streets, our houses, our lungs, our children’s lungs — happens in broad daylight. Anyone can look up into the sky and see the spraying. Just don’t look for it on the News.

Look-Up (Flyer from Geoengineeringwatch.org)

These days the spraying is becoming creative. Thin white trails that taper off. Spraying over oceans and spraying over rural areas and spraying at night so the wind brings the dispersed aerosol in the form of thick metallic haze over cities and towns the next morning. Metallic haze that covers the sun, everyday, whether there are clouds or not in the sky. Billowing aluminium clouds which block the sun.

Take a flight today on a commercial airline inside the US–and probably out–and you’ll see a narrow stream of whitish effluent ooze out from a nozzle on the wing. No, that’s not exhaust. It’s not water vapor. (See filmed in-air spraying, from Dane Wigington, of Geo-Engineering Watch.)

What are the geo-engineers so afraid of? Why are they not speaking openly about this? Why are meteorologists on news stations silent? Why are climate scientists professing concern about climate change yet not acknowledging the part “geo-engineering” has to play in changing our weather patterns and creating drought?

Is it because they have embarked on a path that is infinitely deleterious to humanity? And they know it?

These videos featuring interviews with doctors and farmers, among others, reveal disturbing scenarios of what this aerial spraying is doing to our children, our earth, and ourselves. For more information and for flyers to hand to friends and neighbors, please visit http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org and http://www.aircrap.org and http://www.globalskywatch.com and http://www.whyintheworldaretheyspraying.com.  This is one of those things we need to speak out about! To everyone we know, and everyone in positions of government in our vicinity–at county, state, and federal levels. Geoengineering Watch has a whole bunch of resources and ideas for anyone concerned enough to take action on this.  I hope to post some action links soon, to letters and petitions. Meanwhile, if you know a meteorologist or climate scientist, you might want to ask them: why are we all not talking about this openly and publicly?

Why in the World are they spraying?
