GATESHEAD 5G TEST RESULTS : THE WHO,WHY AND HOW! – Annie Logical Uncensored Spread the word far and wide. As a concerned member of the public I wanted to find ‘experts’ who could explain to myself and others, exactly what was happening in Gateshead, with claims being made that the lampposts were operating with 5G signals. I contacted a man who was a member of an organisation called BEMRI which stands for Bio-Electromagnetic Research Initiative. Time to stop hiding behind warming trends Dr Rajendra Pachauri, head of the IPCC, has reportedly acknowledged to Graham Lloyd of The Australian, that there is a “17-year pause in global temperature rises”, a fact that apparently has been suppressed in Australia. Dr Pauchauri endorses debate, saying that people had a right to question the science, whatever their motivations. But according to Lloyd, Pachauri’s views contrast with arguments in Australia that views outside the orthodox position of approved climate scientists should be left unreported. Am I an “approved” climate scientist?

What is coppicing? Coppicing is an ancient form of woodland management, that involves repetitive felling on the same stump, near to ground level, and allowing the shoots to regrow from that main stump. (Also known as the coppice stool) A coppiced woodland will have trees with multiple stems growing out of the stool, which arise from dormant buds on the stool. These buds might also grow from the cambium layer of the cut stem, or root buds close to the stumps. Most shoots come from above ground, but in hazel they can emerge just below the surface. Coppicing is a highly effective method of producing a great deal of fast growing, sustainable timber without the need to replant. Top 10 Solutions to Reverse Climate Change Paul Hawken and the Project Drawdown experts thought they knew what to expect when they modeled and ranked 80 solutions that could reverse climate change. But the data had some surprises in store. Most prominently was that even when the solutions are modeled in terms of what they call a “Plausible Scenario”—a conservative measure of projected solution implementation that is “reasonable yet optimistic”—society still makes great strides toward achieving drawdown, the point where greenhouse-gas levels in the atmosphere begin to decline. Together, all 80 reduce or sequester carbon by 1,051 gigatons by 2050 in the Plausible Scenario.

Local resident claims that women in Gateshead are enduring stillbirths due to street lamps Radiation given off by state-of-the-art street lamps is wreaking havoc on the residents of Gateshead, according to local Mark Steele. He said people living in the area are experiencing symptoms of insomnia, nose bleeds and several women have even endured the horror of stillbirths since the introduction of LED lamps that he believes emit 5G radiation. In his circle alone, Mr Steele, 58, is aware of three women have lost their children since the lights were installed in September 2016, with one giving birth to a deformed child that survived just three hours. Mr Steele, who was part of the IEEE, which claims to be 'the world's largest technical professional organisation dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity', said: 'We are seeing babies dying in the womb as these transmitters are situated outside people's bedroom windows. It's a humanitarian crisis.'

Representative concentration pathways. : Opening the future : Nature Climate Change It took more than two years to hash out the first step in the IPCC's new approach to scenarios: choosing a handful of emissions trajectories, known as representative carbon pathways (RCPs). The RCPs then became the basis for new runs of the latest climate models. In parallel, the RCPs are also intended to be focal points for research on socio-economic scenarios, to see what kinds of developments might take the world along each pathway. The IPCC authors chose four emissions trajectories to focus on, and have labelled them based on how much heating they would produce at the end of the century — 8.5, 6, 4.5 and 2.6 watts per square metre (W m−2).

10 Solutions for Climate Change The enormity of global warming can be daunting and dispiriting. What can one person, or even one nation, do on their own to slow and reverse climate change? But just as ecologist Stephen Pacala and physicist Robert Socolow, both at Princeton University, came up with 15 so-called "wedges" for nations to utilize toward this goal—each of which is challenging but feasible and, in some combination, could reduce greenhouse gas emissions to safer levels—there are personal lifestyle changes that you can make too that, in some combination, can help reduce your carbon impact. Not all are right for everybody. Some you may already be doing or absolutely abhor.

How a Professional Climate Change Denier Discovered the Lies and Decided to Fight for Science The hardest part of reversing the warming of the planet may be convincing climate change skeptics of the need to do so. Although scientists who study the issue overwhelming agree that the earth is undergoing rapid and profound climate changes due to the burning of fossil fuels, a minority of the public remains stubbornly resistant to that fact. With temperatures rising and ice caps melting — and that small minority in control of both Congress and the White House — there seems no project more urgent than persuading climate deniers to reconsider their views. So we reached out to Jerry Taylor, whose job as director of the Niskanen Center involves turning climate skeptics into climate activists. It might seem like an impossible transition, except that Taylor, who used to be staff director for the energy and environment task force at the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and vice president of the Cato Institute, made it himself.

NGOs and European defense forces shipped another 85,000 Africans to Italy Written by Nicholas Farrell The law on whether NGO ships that ferry thousands of illegal migrants from Libya to Europe via Italy each week are smugglers or rescuers is very murky but the name of their game is without doubt very fishy. So I asked an independent Dutch research institute, Gefira, which has done lots of work on Europe’s migrant crisis, to take a closer look at the activities of the NGO fleet. In 2016, its 20 or so vessels – together with European Union and Italian naval and coastguard ships – “rescued” a record 181,000 migrants from open boats near the coast of Libya and brought them to Italy which at its southernmost point, Sicily, is 275 nautical miles (318 miles) from Tripoli.
