Trying To Reason With The Hurricane Season–2018

In Saner Thought

Every year the residents of the Gulf Coast wait for the news of the upcoming hurricane season…..a report on what we can expect to be the “norm”…..not a big deal for most Americans but those that live on the Gulf Coast have had too many disasters to ignore the predictions…..

We wait so that we can plan out our year with supplies, escape routes, etc…….everything we will need to keep our families safe in case another Katrina is waiting to crap on the Gulf Coast……

The 2018 forecast is out….it could be revised before the start of the season on 01June……..

It may seem like we just said goodbye to Harvey, Irma, and Maria, but the new hurricane season is near its official start of June 1. With that, Colorado State University is out with its annual Atlantic forecast, and the season looks to be a little busier than usual…

The human population of the earth has more than doubled since the Earth-Rise picture was taken in 1968, making caretaking of the earth and human birth control even more urgent.

Here in an old, old tradition from thousands of years ago, written almost 2,000 years ago, one sees much biological truth. The human body reflects the earth and water itself. If you poison the earth and the water with lethal radionuclides, humans and other life takes up these man-made radionuclides:
Genesis 2:6 “But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. 7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

7 Habits That Are Making You Unhappy

Openhearted Rebel

By Luke Miller, Truth Theory

Sometimes it is less what we do, and more what we don’t do that has the biggest impact on our lives.

Happiness; something that everyone wants to find in some form, yet elusive enough that many never really find the deep level of satisfaction that they crave. Often we go for everything that surrounds the potential happiness, instead of just going direct to the source. This often leads to immense suffering.

There are many “things” in the world, yet none of those “things” will actually bring us anywhere closer to our desires. It is feelings that we need, and feelings are created by experiences and mindset.

7 Practices That Lead to Empowered Health

Openhearted Rebel

By Hilde Larsen, Wake Up World

In my practice, I see how important planning is. No goal, no plan, no action, no result. When we have a focus, an honest intent, passion and direction, nothing can stop us.

I also see a difference between planning and being too rigid; by that I mean, a plan that comes from the desire to create and follow through needs to be firm. BUT, it also needs to leave you the space that YOU need to feel empowered by it, not imprisoned.

HSBC has joined an increasing list of large banks by announcing Friday it would not longer finance coal-fired plants, oil sands and arctic drilling.

The move, announced by Europe’s largest bank at its annual meeting as part of its new energy policy, seeks to head off criticism from investors who want the institution’s actions to be aligned with the Paris Agreement, a global pact to limit greenhouse gas emissions and curb rising temperatures.

Daniel Klier, HSBC’s sustainability boss, said the decision reflected the bank’s ambition to help its customers make the transition to a low-carbon economy.

“Europe’s largest bank, however, will continue to finance coal-fired power plants in Bangladesh, Indonesia and Vietnam.

“We recognize the need to reduce emissions rapidly…

Carbon capture offers a false hope that we can sustain our use of coal.

By Cam Walker

Last week, the Andrews government announced it was launching a “world-first” project to produce hydrogen in the Latrobe Valley.

The project is being developed by a consortium of Japanese energy and infrastructure companies led by Kawasaki Heavy Industries, with the support of the Victorian, Commonwealth and Japanese governments. It aims to convert brown coal into hydrogen, which will then be transported to Japan for use in fuel cell electric vehicles and power generation.

The Loy Yang brown coal mine in Victoria’s Latrobe Valley.

On face value this attempt to turn our remaining coal resource into new export opportunities might seem like a good idea. But once you drill into the issue it becomes complex very quickly.

Firstly, there is the awkward fact that this project won’t be able…

A report by Sandhya Santoo for Trinidad’s Express.

SWARMS of locusts have arrived in Piparo and have begun eating their way through the farmlands.

Farmer and resident at Johnstone Road, Richard Boodoo said he risks losing his fields of crops and little has been done by the Ministry of Agriculture to contain the situation.

Boodoo is calling for the Ministry of Agriculture to intervention and begin spraying pesticide in the area.

Boodoo said he has made numerous complaints to the Ministry for assistance, with no response.

“I have called so many times for them to come out to my side and they haven’t come. I don’t know what the y are waiting for but the locust will eat away everything that I have planted. I have fields of coconuts and hot peppers and I could lose it all. The locust eating away everything and Ministry isn’t doing enough,” he…
