It is almost unbelievable

China has become heavily fossil fuel addicted – double the US – which makes it highly dependent on outside-country energy sources which plays into the hands of those countries controlling the oil (Saudi Arabia’s USA best friend) gas (Russia) and coal (Australia also pro-US).

2014: 16% of all Crude Oil imports to China comes from Saudi Arabia 9% from Iraq 3% from Kuwait 4% from United Arabic Emirates, 4% from Venezuela, 2% from Brazil. Totaling to 38% from US controlled Arabic and non-Arabic colonies with oil.

This gives the US another motivation to destabilize Iran (9%) and Russia (11%) and gain control over Angola (13%). So for China to have eye-level negotiations with USA and the rest of the planet it would be important to reduce those dependencies. Same goes for every other country – but it is not easy.

climate change – co2 and average temperatures

while there is no question that the climate is changing and always has been changing – the question is – how are humans altering the atmosphere and what does it mean for ecosystems and mankind itself.

While the cold can kill – the heat can kill as well – by the absence of enough fresh water – i recommend everyone to take a trip to the desert – and rethink cold snow and rain of Europe.

according to this graph: the average global temperature – 200 million years ago – at the time before the dinosaurs were hit by meteoroid – was 20°C?

what also concerns me: less o2 = more stupid

does more CO2 mean less O2? Less CO2 means mankind gets more stupid every day… watch this – pilots are tested to withstand low CO2 levels – and fail regularly – but after short time the brain can’t operate anymore – after 3 minutes brain damage can occur – after 10 minutes death is for sure.

Das Geldsystem tut auf jedenfalls eines nicht: Es fragt nicht nach dem Sinn. Deshalb ist mit dem größten Schwachsinn (Drogen) leider oft am meisten Geld verdient.

Geld ist eigentlich nur eine “Verrechnungseinheit” von Leistung.

Es hat keinen Wert an sich (keinen Material Wert noch nicht mal einen ideologischen Wert).

Aber in dem Moment wo das Überleben von Menschen vom Geld ab hängt – wird es zum Macht / Herrschafts / Regierungs-instrument.

Früher als noch 99% der Bevölkerung in der Landwirtschaft arbeitete (im besten Fall auf ihrem eigenen Land) hatte Geld nicht die alles-dominierende Rolle – die Grundnahrungsmittel hat man (versucht) selbst herzustellen. Jetzt da nur noch 1% der Bevölkerung in der Landwirtschaft arbeiten – ist das Überleben eines praktisch jeden vom Geld abhängig.

Das ist ein Problem welches unbeachtet unter der Oberfläche schlummert – aber es ist ein kritisches Problem – Regierungen sollten dieses als Problem ansehen und ihren Bürgern helfen es zu beheben.

Gebt jedem einen Garten, Saatgut, Werkzeug und einen Lehrer – und die Gesellschaft kann sich selbst heilen.

English:

One thing the monetary system DOES NOT: Ask for meaning.

The most meaningless senseless things sometimes generate the most money.

Money is actually just a unit for trading human work.

It has no intrinsic value (it’s just paper not gold (anymore)).

But when the survival of humans start to depend on money – it becomes a tool of power and reign and government.

100 years ago 99% of the population were farmers (in the best case on their own land) – money did not have this god-allmighty-kind-of-rule-them-all power over mankind – 99% were growing their own food to survive. Now that only 1% of the population works on farms – basically everyone’s survival has become dependent on money.

this is often under the radar but a critical problem that needs fixing – and governments should recognize this problem and help their citizens in fixing it.

give everyone a garden, seeds, tools and instructions – and society will heal itself.

Beim Geldsystem geht es immer um das generieren von Privileg/Recht auf Geld Betrag X und dem anschließenden generieren von Rechten/Privilegien aus dem Geldsystem heraus (wer darf was womit)

im Grunde kann man im Kapitalismus auf zwei arten an Geld kommen – durch Arbeit oder durch Diebstahl/Betrug.

der Übergang dazwischen ist fließend.

In the monetary system its all about generating a right to charge amount money X – so it is tightly knit with the law-system (hence lawyers tend to make a lot of money) – what then follows is a generation of rights and privileges by money e.g. buy a house buy a car buy a second house to “own it” – not necessarily use it – but generate the privilege/right to own it.

 

Car bomb kills crusading Panama Papers journalist in Malta

Center CEO, John Dunbar, condemns attack, demands thorough investigation 

News sources today are reporting the tragic death of Daphne Caruana Galizia, a journalist who led the Panama Papers investigation into corruption in Malta.

Caruana Galizia, 53, was reportedly killed in a car bombing near her home. Local media reports indicated that in recent days she had filed a police report complaining of death threats.

Caruana Galizia was a fearless journalist and blogger who exposed numerous offshore dealings of prominent figures in Malta. She was also the mother of International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) developer and data journalist Matthew Caruana Galizia.

The Center for Public Integrity spun off ICIJ earlier this year. John Dunbar, CEO of the Center condemned the attack, saying it was “not only a tragic killing of a courageous journalist but an attack on the profession as a whole. This must not go unpunished.”

ICIJ released a statement condemning the attack:

“ICIJ condemns violence against journalists and is deeply concerned about freedom of the press in Malta,” wrote its director, Gerard Ryle. “ICIJ calls upon the Maltese authorities to investigate the murder and bring the perpetrators to justice. ICIJ’s thoughts are with the Caruana Galizia family at this time.”

No group or individual has come forward to claim responsibility for the attack according to news accounts at this writing.
