Very Large Solar Proton Event and Plasma Bubbles and bow shock. The main stream media and their agenda taken into context with the global warming swindle, or scam. BS science, Lies, damned lies and statistics, true believers, evangelical warmers and prophets of doom will find zero solace here. Anyone with intuition strong enough to override the pangs of guilt that any conscious human has in the modern world due to being a have yet knowing of the existence of the have nots. Intuitively recognizing the inherent unfairness, outright fraud, blatant propagandizing and total media coverage of the global warming scam and anthropogenic global warming bull shit. AGWBS.

Bio-fuel, peak oil, anthropogenic global warming, carbon credits – all either untrue or set up to harm us. If they are lies, or taxation exercises then maybe other stuff is lies also. Evolution anyone? The big bang? That always seemed counter intuitive to me. It’s the Sun, stupid.

Antibiotics and the character assassination of vitamin supplements. http://jackherer.com/ there is an answer to all our problems. Hemp. The next lie will be that the coming (2008 >>) cooling working against the recent mild warming will give us time to work against the evil man made global warming, or rather the stupid lie that taxation can prevent any climate changes especially those attributed to an anthropogenic activities.Shall we go on ?

The PDO seems to be driven by the huge Aleutian Low in the Arctic/ Saturated adiabatic rate, transient luminous events and total overcast reduces surface insolation by as much as 90%. magnetohydrodynamics – the ascending node of the solar equatorial plane crosses the ecliptic at a certain point, and that this “drifts” around 1 degree every 72 years.
