  TOGETHER as [ONE] • COP26: CLIMATE DEAL SOUNDS

  THE DEATH KNELL FOR COAL POWER - Boris Johnson

 

For every day that passes, this conclusion receives further confirmation • "The ruling classes of this world are constitutionally incapable of responding to the catastrophe in any other way than by expediting it. Unfortunately, COP26 did not produce any compelling reasons to revise that conclusion. Less than a week after the end of the summit, the Biden administration held the largest federal offshore drilling auction in US history.

“The administration has more than sufficient authority under the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act to cancel this lease sale.”



There is little to suggest that any other government signing the Glasgow Pact will behave differently

What is the metaverse and Web 3.0 ? ...

At first mention, you may think the metaverse sounds like a fantasy world in the latest futuristic Hollywood blockbuster, and truth be told you are not wrong.

The term was first coined in Neal Stephenson’s 1992 sci-fi novel Snow Crash, in which he described a virtual reality-based successor to the internet.

A few decades later, the 2011 dystopian science fiction novel Ready Player One,by Ernest Cline, also centred around a metaverse called the OASIS, which is accessed with a virtual reality headset and wired gloves to escape a world crumbling by an energy crisis.



ALL of which I would most indefatigably suggest, requires A CHANGE of THINKING

Fast forward to today, and the metaverse is now a hot buzzword in Silicon Valley. It is also tied to the development of Web 3.0, which some believe will be the next chapter of the internet’s existence.…

WHAT THE PAPERS DON'T SAY •••

The Government’s Anti-Corruption Champion...

responsible for implementing the anti-corruption strategy, is John Penrose MP. He is the husband of Baroness Dido Harding – head of the Test and Trace programme. But the intersection of public sector appointments and political party donations has not only been witnessed in relation to the pandemic.

The Byline Intelligence Team has calculated that a quarter of top Conservative donors – those who have donated more than £100,000 to the party – have received a title or a peerage. Of the Conservative Party’s 20 biggest donors since 2010 – those donating more than £1.5 million – 55% (11) have received an honour or a title. Ten were given these perks in the past decade.

A more recent trend, and one catalogued extensively by Byline Times, has been a concerted attempt to appoint Conservative-leaning figures to public bodies. One former Government official …

A STARK WARNING TO MANKIND IN[DEED] !!!

"James Lovelock will go down in history as the scientist who changed our view of the Earth from a barren rock covered with a thin coating of life to a self-organising system that in many ways resembles a single organism. Following a conversation with the novelist William Golding, Lovelock named this self-regulating system after the Greek earth goddess Gaia. Viewed with suspicion by Darwinian fundamentalists, Gaia theory is now widely accepted and used in scientific disciplines. Its implication is that humanity is part of a much larger system that it cannot control, still less master. The Earth's self-regulating processes impose limits on human ambitions, and if humanity acts to destabilise the system, the Earth will readjust in ways that show no regard for human welfare." 



In The Revenge of Gaia - the most important book ever to be published on the environmental crisis - Lovelock applies Gaia theory to climate change. Using the latest scientific findings, he concludes that an abrupt and radical climatic shift is unavoidable. Global heating - as he prefers to describe it…

Having subsequently had an exclusive demonstration from Phillips, of their development of that which was to become their Laservision Videodisc Project, and had explained that instead of frame accessible PAL video. up to 1.5 GB of data could be stored, I produced the…

From COP1 to COP26:flashes of brilliance...

 YEARS of DISAPPOINTMENT



As the world gears up for COP26 in Glasgow, Marco Magrini charts the fortunes of the COP summits
 ...



'The danger of global warming is, as yet, unseen, but real enough for us to make changes and sacrifices, so that we do not live at the expense of future generations.’ It was 1990 when these words were uttered, during the second World Climate Conference in Geneva. The utterer was UK prime minister Margaret Thatcher. ‘Our immediate task,’ she went on to say, ‘is to carry as many countries as possible with us, so that we can negotiate a successful framework convention on climate change in 1992.’ 

As incredible as it may seem, that is what happened next.



The 1973 oil crisis or first oil crisis began in October 1973 when the members

of the Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries led by…

THE HUMAN BRAIN [IS] HARDWIRED NOT ONLY ...

to ASK THE QUESTIONS but ALSO TO KNOW THE ANSWERS



SPIRIT, like God, denotes an object of psychic experience which cannot be proved to exist in the external world and cannIot be understood rationally. This is its meaning if we use the word “spirit” in its best sense. Once we have freed ourselves from the prejudice that we have to refer to concepts of external experience or to a priori categories of reason, we can turn our attention and curiosity wholly to that strange and unknown thing we call spirit.



Mercury, the ambiguous god, only comes as the lumen nature, the Servator and Salvator, to the help of the very necceasry human understanding that relates [IT]self to the highest light ever received by man and does not, unmindful of it, trust exclusively to the cognitio verspertina.
