    Where Does the Carbon Dioxide Really Come From?

    Professor Ian Plimer could not have said it better!

    If you’ve read his book you will agree, this is a good summary.

    PLIMER: “Okay, here’s the bombshell. The volcanic eruption in Iceland. Since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet - all of you.

    Of course, you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress - it’s that vital chemical compound
    that every plant requires to live and grow and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life.

    I know....it’s very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags,sitting up till midnight to finish your kids “The Green Revolution” science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, vacationing at home instead of abroad. Nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50 cent light bulbs with $10.00 light bulbs.....well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just four days.

    The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth’s atmosphere in just four days - yes, FOUR DAYS - by that volcano in Iceland has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon. And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud at any one time - EVERY DAY.

    I don’t really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should mention that when the volcano Mt Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in all its years on earth. Yes, folks, Mt Pinatubo was active for over One year - think about it.

    Of course, I shouldn’t spoil this ‘touchy-feely tree-hugging’ moment and mention the effect of solar and cosmic
    activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which keeps happening despite our
    completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.

    And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud, but the fact of the matter is that the bush fire
    season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years. And it happens every year.

    Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping carbon tax on you, on the basis of the bogus ‘human-caused’ climate-change scenario.

    Hey, isn’t it interesting how they don’t mention ‘Global Warming’ anymore, but just ‘Climate Change’- you know why? It’s because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees in the past century and these global warming bull artists got caught with their pants down.

    And, just keep in mind that you might yet have an Emissions Trading Scheme - that whopping new tax -imposed on you that will achieve absolutely nothing except make you poorer. It won’t stop any volcanoes from erupting, that’s for sure.

    But, hey, relax...... and have a nice day :>)”

    Stunning isn’t it!!!!??????

    Read this informative article - it’s long but educational.

    http://www.constitution.org/juris/fedjur1.htm

    excerpt:

    And a further expression of similar import is found in Harcourt v. Gaillard, 25 U.S. (12 Wheat.) 523, 526, 527 (1827), where the Court stated:

    “There was no territory within the United States that was claimed in any other right than that of some one of the confederated states; therefore, there could be no acquisition of territory made by the United States distinct from, or independent of some one of the states.

    “Each declared itself sovereign and independent, according to the limits of its territory.

    “[T]he soil and sovereignty within their acknowledged limits were as much theirs at the declaration of independence as at this hour.”

    Thus, unequivocally, in July, 1776, the new States possessed all sovereignty, power, and jurisdiction over all the soil and persons in their respective territorial limits.

    This condition of supreme sovereignty of each State over all property and persons within the borders thereof continued notwithstanding the adoption of the Articles of Confederation. In Article II of that document, it was expressly stated:

    “Article II. Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and every Power, Jurisdiction and right, which is not by this confederation expressly delegated to the United States, in Congress assembled.”

    Before statehood was granted, the land was occupied by settlers who had squatters’ rights. Why would statehood be necessary if the US already had jurisdiction and ownership???

    http://usgovinfo.about.com/od/uscongress/a/statehoodproc.htm

    The Typical Process
    Historically, Congress has applied the following general procedure when granting territories statehood:
    •The territory holds a referendum vote to determine the people’s desire for or against statehood.

    •Should a majority vote to seek statehood, the territory petitions the U.S. Congress for statehood.

    •The territory, if it has not already done so, is required to adopt a form of government and constitution that are in compliance with the U.S. Constitution.

    •The U.S. Congress - both House and Senate - pass, by a simple majority vote, a joint resolution accepting the territory as a state.

    Federal Acquisition of Land Within States

    By Bill Howell and J.L. (Jim) Tenney

    Does the federal government’s purchase of lands within the boundary of a state require the consent of the state legislature? If we are in a sovereign state, the answer is absolutely, yes! As a Constitutional Republic, if our elected representatives are not accountable and do not uphold our state sovereignty and individual liberties, then we are lost.

    Although the Enclave Clause of the U.S. Constitution, Article I, section 8, Clause 17, authorizes Congress to purchase, own and control land within the boundary of a state, it is very specific and limiting as to what type of lands the federal government can own and control within a given state. It also leaves no doubt that the state legislature has to relinquish control of those lands. The relevant portion of the Enclave clause reads:

    Congress may exercise exclusive legislative “authority over all places purchased by the consent of the legislature of the state in which the same shall be, for the erection of forts, magazines, arsenals, dockyards, and other needful buildings;”

    Can any agency of the federal government come into a state and purchase land without state authorization as any other buyer would? Is it a private property right for a property owner to sell to the federal government? A proper reading of the Enclave Clause shows the answer to both of these questions is NO.

    Don’t know how to print the map - but since 1776 -the Feds sure have seized more land than the Brits could have ever dreamed of.

    http://bigthink.com/strange-maps/291-federal-lands-in-the-us

    The United States government has direct ownership of almost 650 million acres of land (2.63 million square kilometers) – nearly 30% of its total territory. These federal lands are used as military bases or testing grounds, nature parks and reserves and indian reservations, or are leased to the private sector for commercial exploitation (e.g. forestry, mining, agriculture). They are managed by different administrations, such as the Bureau of Land Management, the US Forest Service, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Park Service, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the US Department of Defense, the US Army Corps of Engineers, the US Bureau of Reclamation or the Tennessee Valley Authority.

    Volcanoes are the real menace and I doubt that the thousands of eruptions are considered in the EPA data. I posted this on an earlier thread but it’s worth repeating. The USGS site has some terrifying statistics.

    http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/hazards/gas/climate.php

    The most significant climate impacts from volcanic injections into the stratosphere come from the conversion of sulfur dioxide to sulfuric acid, which condenses rapidly in the stratosphere to form fine sulfate aerosols. The aerosols increase the reflection of radiation from the Sun back into space, cooling the Earth’s lower atmosphere or troposphere. Several eruptions during the past century have caused a decline in the average temperature at the Earth’s surface of up to half a degree (Fahrenheit scale) for periods of one to three years. The climactic eruption of Mount Pinatubo on June 15, 1991, was one of the largest eruptions of the twentieth century and injected a 20-million ton (metric scale) sulfur dioxide cloud into the stratosphere at an altitude of more than 20 miles. The Pinatubo cloud was the largest sulfur dioxide cloud ever observed in the stratosphere since the beginning of such observations by satellites in 1978. It caused what is believed to be the largest aerosol disturbance of the stratosphere in the twentieth century, though probably smaller than the disturbances from eruptions of Krakatau in 1883 and Tambora in 1815. Consequently, it was a standout in its climate impact and cooled the Earth’s surface for three years following the eruption, by as much as 1.3 degrees at the height of the impact. Sulfur dioxide from the large 1783-1784 Laki fissure eruption in Iceland caused regional cooling of Europe and North America by similar amounts for similar periods of time.

    Yes - abortion and other evil acts by humans to humankind. But those abominations have not reduced the population overall. I believe the statistics in my reference show the birth rate is presently double the death rate.

    Posit that perhaps the “Gay Marriage” phenomenon is supposed to reduce abortions and the birthrate - but then we have IVF etc., for gays & lesbians. Frightening how modern man has become addicted to perverted personal convenience rather than Christian conscience (or natural selection).

    Interesting statistics here:
    http://www.wholesomewords.org/missions/greatc.html

    It is estimated that in 1 AD, there were 300 million people in the world; in 1250, 400 million; in 1500, 500 million. According to UN estimates, the world population reached 1 billion in 1804; rose to 2 billion 123 years later, in 1927; to 3 billion 33 years after that, in 1960; to 4 billion in 1974; to 5 billion in 1987; and to 6 billion in 1999. The Census Bureau put the world population in mid-2013 at about 7.1 billion.
    **********************************************************
    As I read history - human civilizations have experienced mass deaths due to war, pandemics and pestilence. It is usually regional except for the two World Wars. The birth and death rhythm is constant (or increasing due to food production and medicine so the phrase "End of the World" is not likely - unless God makes that decision.

    Let’s consider John’s premise - ever since smoking cigarettes in public places has been demonized and prohibited - men (and women) have felt repressed, angry, bossed around, belittled and treated as lepers. I believe smokers used to be over 50% of the population - a smelly, but happy group. Now, not so much. Even those who still smoke are ‘sent outside’ and treated as pariahs.

    So we have a huge population of angry, nicotine deprived people who might snap at any moment. Beware - carry some smokes and a lighter - you could prevent a temper tantrum or nicotine nuclear explosion.

    from Wiki on the FOUNDER of Dollar General:

    The first Dollar General store opened in Scottsville, Kentucky, on June 1, 1955, the concept was that no item in the store would cost more than one dollar. The idea became a success, and other stores owned by J.L. Turner and his son Cal Turner were quickly converted. By 1957, annual sales of Dollar General’s 29 stores were $5 million. The Turners did not reach this level of success without obstacles. James Luther (J.L.) Turner’s father died in an accident in 1902 when J.L. was only 11. J.L. had to quit school so he could work the family farm and help provide for his mother and siblings. He never completed his education. J.L. knew his limited education demanded that he become a quick study of the world around him.

    Maryland and Virginia police went even further and said they reached out to Washington police and volunteered their help, but they never were asked to activate their AMBER Alert. This is particularly alarming as Tatum is suspected of killing his wife in a Maryland motel last week and he has a criminal record in Virginia.

    Tatum has a gun - so if he’s cornered he might try ‘suicide by cop’ or use Relisha as a hostage - and I will not list the worst case scenario.

    Keep praying.

    The McCanns left their child unattended (negligent) and were questioned as the last people to see their daughter.

    The Rudd parent(s) and other family members are being given a pass - because the suspected murderer was the last known person to have custody of Relisha. The family should be considered as aiding and abetting an abduction.

    Tatum could be anywhere in the US - he’s wanted for the murder of his wife. Probably stole her car for a getaway.

    ***I’m willing to bet that the mother was on welfare though.***

    Probably, the DC General Hospital had been converted to a homeless shelter - where she lived with her boyfriend, 3-4 other children and maybe her mother. All the adults seem complicit in this tragedy.

    Local DC station is giving this case a lot of attention - as it should. At one time she was thought to be in Virginia.

    Remember the national attention give to Maddie McCann’s disappearance (?)- and she was not even in the US.

    It is horrifying how this young child’s family let Tatum into her life. In this instance, the teachers were the only people who behaved responsibly.

    Tatum, 51, worked as a janitor at the shelter and knew Relisha and her family, authorities say.

    Tatum has been charged with murdering his wife, Andrea Denise Tatum, in a Prince George’s County hotel last week.

    The FBI and Prince George’s County Police are each offering rewards of $25,000 in connection to the murder and the girl’s disappearance.

    On Tuesday, authorities released surveillance footage of Tatum and Relisha taken on Feb. 26 at the Holiday Inn Express located at 1917 Bladensburg Road in Northeast D.C.

    http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_species_of_bird_flies_at_the_highest_elevation

    The Bar-headed Goose is believed to be the highest flying bird having been seen at up to 10175 m (33,382 feet). It has a slightly larger wing area for its weight than other geese and it is believed this helps the goose to fly so high.

    The altitude record is held by a Rüppell’s griffon Gyps rueppelli, a vulture with a 10-foot wingspan. On November 29, 1975 one was sucked into a jet engine 37,900 feet above the Ivory Coast in West Africa. The plane was damaged but landed safely.

    The bird that flies highest regularly is the bar-headed goose Anser indicus, which travels directly over the Himalayas en route between its nesting grounds in Tibet and winter quarters in India. They are sometimes seen flying well above the peak of Mt. Everest at 29,035 ft.

    Interesting!!!

    This is going to upset all my FRiends - but I say go ahead - Free condoms, free BC pills, diaphragms etc., but only if all abortions are illegal to include morning after pills.

    Perhaps this is the only ‘deal with the Devil’ that God will approve.

    I agree with Bennett - modern lyrics are not poetry - the ‘melodies’ are repetitive pounding one-noters - and how can anyone consider ‘rap talking’ as music?

    Raised by parents playing Vera Lynn and Bing Crosby on a gramophone - adored Elvis in my adolescence - tolerated the Beatles - enjoyed my children playing Foreigner, Billy Idol et al during the 80’s.

    Now I and the offspring enjoy Classical, Country and our shared memories.

    I have a dear friend who starts the day putting in her teeth, adjusting her hearing aid, donning her glasses and wig.

    She cried tears of gratitude:)

    How on earth is this monster attractive to her sexual partners? Hopefully every one of them takes precautions not to impregnate her - if not, they too are guilty of ‘pre-meditated’ murder.
