U.S. Government climate control investments: Farce or no farce?




“Alarmists are very lucky that there haven’t been any large eruptions in the last 15 years, because the depravity of their scam would be obvious to everybody” ~~ Steve Goddard



According to the document image above left dated June 11, 1986, our earth was suppose to become extinct 4 years ago with another source stating 8 years ago.

On April 14, 2014, former president, Mary Robinson stated global leaders and scientists have 20 years to save the planet, which means we roughly have until 2034/2035 before our planet is going to disappear.


Earth Day is near and in honor of “ED” I sincerely want to stress the “sky-will-fall if we don’t invest $400 billion or more per year” nonsense thrown around by our feathered, liberal friends.

To say "fossil fuel emissions are causing global warming" is mathematically + scientifically preposterous, impossible, and a bunch of more farcical gibberish.

Essentially what the government is advocating is that "cancer causes cigarette smoking."

Consequently, the politicians and our government have this all backwards as do the quaky scientists the government commissioned to scientifically quantify the myths and speculative climate control farce all at the expense of "we the people's" tax dollars.

THE GREENHOUSE EFFECT AND COWS

Regarding the greenhouse effect, although the majority worry about possible global warming from the additional carbon dioxide (CO2) we put into the atmosphere by mankind, the amount is roughly 80% of the 5% (or 4% of 100% CO2) with less than 1% (of 100%) coming from fossil fuel emissions.

Additionally, a recent article in “Freedom Outpost” indicated that the largest producer of greenhouse gases from that 4% (80% of 5%) are from cow flatulence and belches and NOT FOSSIL FUELS. So what next? Is U.S.A. government going to KILL THE COWS?




WILL THE SKY FALL DUE TO CARBON DIOXIDE (CO2)?


Furthermore, even if we reduced the amount of CO2 by the U.S. that comes from cows (this does not count the rest of our world), it would have no impact at all on changing the forces of natural climate and atmospheric changes.

According to a Columbia University article titled "The Carbon Cycle and the Earth's Climate," our global climate would be significantly cooler even with no CO2 in the atmosphere. Source: The Carbon Cycle and Earth's Climate, Columbia University.

Unfortunately, what the politicians, celebrities, ultra-rich liberals want "we the people" to believe and to waste our $$$ on is that "our-sky-is-falling" and we can stop this only if we invest billions and trillions of dollars in the next few years (government never guarantees it will work).

Do you agree that we all need to examine why the government is so hell bent on heavily investing in these unsubstantiated climate control programs?

RICH KEEP GETTING RICHER, POOR KEEP GETTING POORER, AND THE MIDDLE CLASS IS ON THE BRINK OF EXTINCTION
Politicians (all parties here), celebrities, advocates, supporters of this nonsense –receive tons of donations for campaign funding for their own selfish interests at “we the people’s” expense. The poor are getting poorer and the middle class are on the brink of extinction.

Not surprisingly, the rich become richer, investors make tons of $$$, politicians stay in office for longer terms, etc., and they do not care if the program doesn't work. All this while "we the people's" taxes are spent on climate control programs that are not substantiated but since investments are made by government insiders, they continue to have inflated bank accounts.

Moreover, there is no proof that what these climate control companies are doing will actually be successful or have any substantial impact. Do you believe technology can win over Mother Nature?

Theoretically, the only math and science relevant is that the climate control quaks hired by our government are getting ultra rich, becoming million to billionaires all at the expense of "we the people’s" tax dollars.


Consider the growing wealth of Gore, Clinton, Pelosi, liberal celebrities, etc., (to mention a few) all emanating from our government’s climate control propaganda. All while “we the people” keep on getting less opportunity.

It’s not redistribution of wealth that is needed but redistribution of government expenditures that really matter.

Additionally, the tax rates consistently decrease as the rich get richer and middle class taxes increase as their wages decrease.

PHOTOSYNTHESIS AND RESPIRATION

The Columbia article titled "The Carbon Cycle and the Earth's Climate" explains the outgassing as well as how photosynthesis works and how the majority of CO2 released is from natural elements (e.g., midocean ridges, volcanoes, rock, plants, trees, animal life, cows, man, etc. and not fossil fuel emissions).

Additionally, the article describes how photosynthesis and respiration are in continual opposing sides and will never balance out. It's not as if we can inject a needle with penicillin into the ground and alter our planet's climate.


Not surprisingly, the result is that over geologic time, there is more “oxygen put into the atmosphere and carbon dioxide removed by photosynthesis than the reverse." This is in total contrast to what scientists commissioned by our government have been indicating.

Isn’t it about time that we stop putting our country into more debt over this absurdity thrown upon us at the expense of our tax dollars?

Isn’t it about time we invest in substantial issues such as eliminating our deficit, investing more in our economy, employment, health care insurance reform, technology, education, military, families, their health, mental illness, etc.?

This is not to say that our country should not study sustainable development and environmental science concepts. Sustainabilty is integral for making better decisions for the future of our ecosystems and environment but it must be clearly thought out and planned in a much more organized, integrated scenario and at significantly lower costs. No individuals should be capitalizing on sustainability efforts period! The benefit of sustainability development is that it takes into account everything including social, economic, environment, and viability (meaning viability will guarantee the success of the program).

Do you agree we need to focus on real issues that matter? The government has been working on a backward equation (e.g., "cancer causes cigarette smoking") for several years and our deficit is growing exponentially. We will probably reach a $20 trillion dollar deficit before 2020.

Unequivocally, I hope this puts climate control expenditures into perspective. Our government cannot keep on wasting tax dollars on nonsensical climate control quack programs that simply do not work.

Disappointingly, the current government climate control programs add a few jobs (if any), go to family members, buddies, etc., and few insiders become rich at the expense of making "we the people" poor. The Columbia University article (http://www.columbia.edu/~vjd1/carbon.htm ) also describes real facts about the “Greenhouse Effect.”


EARTH DAY

Earth Day will be celebrating its 45th event (44 years) this coming April 22nd, and I have been supportive of Earth Day since it was first introduced back in 1970. I would not advocate that we all should ignore efforts to conserve energy, water, and recycle, as well as implement solar and alternate fuel. However, they need to become available for public use only when there is valid proof that our atmosphere will positively impact the world with significantly less dollars than current costs.

650 SCIENTISTS DISAGREE WITH A U.N. REPORT BY 52 SCIENTISTS

An article in 2009 by American Thinker reported that a Princeton University professor and former Director of Energy Research at the Department of Energy (1990-1993), presented some of his key findings on climate change and reported that 650 prominent international scientists, including both former and current IPCC participants, have challenged the claims about global warming made by the 52 scientists commissioned by U.N. panel's report. He also stated carbon dioxide (CO2), the compound singled out by the IPCC as a major contributor to global warming, has, in fact, a beneficial compound essential for life on earth.

Moreover, we need to be reminded, that the earth has been changing climates for zillions of years way before America was burning fossil fuels. This article also concludes that current warming period (which actually ended 10 years ago) began in 1800 following the close of the little ice age (1300-1650 AD), which was preceded by a Medieval Warm Period (800-1300 AD) and noted that the little ice age and the Medieval Warm Period were conveniently omitted from the IPCC report.

On all accounts, this fact is valid proof that global warming had nothing to do with fossils fuel burning.

Also worth noting is that over the last 10,000 years since the last ice age, there have been several global warming events. Thus further supporting that climate change has occurred multiple times without actions of mankind. (Source: American Thinker

Obviously, wasting inordinate amounts of government time and money on climate control programs that bear no guarantee to significantly improve the earth's atmosphere is stupidity. Also, over the past 3 years the U.S. has spent nearly 8 billion dollars of "we the people's" tax monies in other countries for climate programs that we will never know outcomes or if the $$$ are going to the program.

Unfortunately, even if what these 52 scientists reported had any grain of validity, nothing we would do would ever generate a significant difference in our world's atmosphere.

Historically, our government and politicians have been wasting our tax dollars on programs that will have no impact on the forces of Mother Nature, have no proof or guarantee these programs will work, and it’s about time they focus on the more pressing issues.


WHERE HAVE ALL OUR TRILLIONS GONE?

Regrettably, our government spending is on the verge of increasing debt to $20 trillion before 2020. The government needs to focus on our economy, eliminating debt, improving employment, supply chain sustainability, reforming healthcare, our military, the injured, families of deceased military, mental health, hunger, homelessness, education, etc.

Additionally, as much as I respect and admire Ann Curry, the likes liberal NBC media, sorry to say, they are riddled with deception, nonsense and propaganda. Many are out of touch with what our country imperatively needs.

Do you think our government is intentionally silencing the hundreds of prominent atmospheric and climate scientists who oppose the existing global warming programs? Do you think climate control is a farce? Isn’t it time our country moves forward instead of backward?

Mobile Magic: The Saatchi & Saatchi Guide to Mobile Marketing and Design
book Review by Gloria Buono-Daly
GBDaly Smile Rating - 5 smiles Up )))))


“Mobile is the fastest-growing arena of marketing, but it is also a space that can be intimidating for all types of business because the customer is in total control and brands have to be invited in..." ~~ Tom Eslinger, Saatchi & Saatchi’s multiple Cannes award-winning Worldwide Creative Director of Digital and author of Mobile Magic: The Saatchi & Saatchi Guide to Mobile Marketing and Design



Mobile Magic: The Saatchi & Saatchi Guide to Mobile Marketing and Design by Tom Eslinger is not your standard mobile marketing guide – it is fast becomming the “bible” to the world of mobile marketing.




Mobile is big business and is the most rapidly "adopted consumer technology" in the world.




According to the ITU (International Telecommunication Union), worldwide mobile phone subscriptions grew from 12.4 million in 1990 to over 6.8 billion by February 2013, penetrating about 96% of the global population (estimated at about 7.1 billion) and reaching the bottom of the economic pyramid.

Now, more than ever, the demand to create mobile marketing campaigns successfully and with impact is crucial.


Mobile connectivity is virtually ubiquitous and it’s going to take “Mobile Magic” to keep ahead and be successful at implementing mobile marketing campaigns. (photo right courtesy of FreeDigitalPhotos)

Helping marketers in doing just that is the new book "Mobile Magic: The Saatchi & Saatchi Guide to Mobile Marketing and Design" by Tom Eslinger (Wiley, February 2014).

“Mobile Magic” puts relative content into relevant perspective – besides including a worthy historical section on the evolution of mobile, Eslinger shares his insights and perspectives on the nature and scope of mobile marketing like no one else can. ("advertising cloud" photo below left courtesy of FreeDigitalPhotos)

Reflecting on his decades of experiences as Creative Director at Saatchi & Saatchi, Eslinger tells real-world mobile marketing stories from Saatchi & Saatchi clients Lexus, General Mills’ Lucky Charms and P&G’s Gillette Venus.

According to Eslinger, creating successful mobile marketing campaigns must involve 4 key elements known as “MIST” (Mobile, Intimate, Social and Transactional). This coupled with his three filter Ps (Portable, Personal and Potent) are essential for consistent mobile marketing successes.

Eslinger emphasizes “why” being without any of these key essentials a mobile campaign will never reach its full potential and “how" marketers can be successful "when" they receive target audience feedback to their brands through social network communications and mobile transactions.


Eslinger lists “5 things to do right now” sections at chapter endings, which are highly effective in helping readers navigate mobile, understand intricacies and intimacies of mobile, and realize the importance of engaging customers through mobile.

As you read the book you will note many aspects of mobile you thought you knew but really didn’t.

“Mobile Magic” is filled with so many valuable takeaways it’s more than a guide – it’s like a “bible” to the world of mobile marketing. Every marketing and creative director who needs to implement mobile marketing campaigns for their business needs this book.

Twitter reaches the BIG 008 today! Happy Tweet-Day to you!


Happy 8th B-Day Twitter.

Still no definitive business model or $ profit yet Twitter continues to spread wings, ripple effects and much intrigue! Wishing you many more twitterers, tweets and TweetDays!

According to Stan Schroeder, writer of Mashable, Twitter's B-Day is today -- last year I was wrong, I thought it was March 22nd, but it's indeed March 21st -- the first day co-founder Jack Dorsey tweeted his very first tweet. Here is Schroeder's article from Twitter's 6th, Happy 6th Birthday, Twitter!

Twitter hasn't changed much with the exception of it's phenomenal growth. According to many resources including Mashable and SocialMedia, Twitter has about 200 million accounts and averages 400M tweets per day. While this statistic may be debatable since others including Mashable indicate that Twitter has over 500 million, Twitter itself has reported that as of February 2013, they have 200 million users. Below is a blog I wrote back in 2009 all about Twitter:

Twitter, a micro-blog with a 140-character-limit blurb known as a “tweet” having potential to create a chain of social media networking events that can lead to exponentially larger alterations of social media networking instances. Twittering appears to have maximized the power of connecting. In less than 4 years, it is  estimated that there are over 250 million twitter accounts worldwide.

But if you think that Twitter and the bird’s far reaching effect is enough to make your media campaign a success, try spreading your wings and flying. You just might find yourself in a nose-dive!

Of course, everyone is twittering, with hopes of creating shifts in perspectives that will lead to greater connections, better businesses and stronger communities.

It’s been said that a sea gull’s simple flap of a wing can change weather, and so too a simple tweet can create ripple effects in the customers, employees, friends, colleagues and even those people and entities that you have never known and now suddenly have become your followers.

Why then are there still no analytics for measuring effectiveness, or tried and true processes and marketing solutions from this bird?

Although Twitter’s wide massive appeal has grown so quickly in such a brief time, it is still considered new. Twitter became available to the public in 2006 but really gained momentum in April 2007. According to Wikipedia “The tipping point for Twitter's popularity was the 2007 South by Southwest, SXSW, festival. During the event usage went from 20,000 tweets per day to 60,000.” This all occurring after the Web 2.0 buzz of 2006, which arose 2 years after the first Web 2.0 Oreilly Conference, October 5 – 7, 2004, at the Hotel Nikko in San Francisco, CA.

Today, there are many factors that contribute to the success of a social networking marketing campaign and Twitter is just one of the many digital integrated marketing tools. Besides having experience, skill and passion about what you are communicating, successful social media marketing requires a well thought out, detailed, marketing plan and timeline. Even with all this, there are still no guarantees; What works for one company or person  may not be as effective for another.

While there are no magic bullets that will guarantee the overall success of your campaign, below you will find a listing of some helpful tips to guide you through the process of integrating twittering into your corporate digital marketing programs:

1. Create momentum with effective communications and set up kick-off meetings well in advance of your deliverables

2. Optimal participation is key. Schedule regular (weekly or bi-weekly) meetings (virtual or in person) and involve as many employees/departments in your organization.

3. Ensure that your meeting handouts include guidelines for branding specs, e.g., having company logo included on all tweets, regardless of whether a company is using different blog/tweet names for different products,/themes, etc., appropriate tone, buzzwords, keywords, etc.

4. If your social marketing media campaign calls for multiple bloggers and twitterers, make sure your respective tweet names match respective tweet blogs; This information should all be mapped out (e.g., spreadsheet) and incorporated into your digital marketing plan alongside all of the other marketing tools you will be integrating

5. Use common sense and discuss best practice to ensure employee tweeters know their leaps and bounds when contributing to avoid compromising your blogs/tweets integrity and reputation

6. Tie in tweets with your company’s blogs – an example is how Martha Stewart’s tips, ideas, etc., from her blog into tweets – again, not necessarily coming from someone from her company, but created such a brand following that followers as well as employees include her ideas in their blogs

7. Understand and learn of the importance of following potential customers, existing customers, vendors, suppliers, etc.

8. Incorporate short and simple auto-respond tweets for new followers – assuring real-time reply in the event no one is able to respond immediately; Although the majority of folks recommend not using auto-responds, my suggestion is to test the waters but keep auto-responds short, thanking them for connecting and sharing relevant information.  If you feel auto-responding is working against you, simply remove it. At least you can say you gave it a try.

9. Understand the importance of hashtags and other application enhancements and use them carefully. E.g., including hashtags in your tweets, e.g., #followfriday; and applications, Tweet Meme, etc. There are pros and cons to hashtags - some folks feel the short 140-character blurbs get distorted from the #hashtag symbol while others are embracing it. So far, I haven't been incorporating hashtags into my tweets. I plan on giving #hashtags a try soon.

Happy 278th Saint Patrick's Day America! Try My Irish Soda Bread Easy 1-2-3 Recipe


"A best friend is like a four leaf clover: hard to find and lucky to have!"           ~~ Anonymous Irish Quote

SlĂ inte
(pronounced: slawncha, like "lawn-chair" but with an "s" in front of it, is how one would say Cheers in Irish Gaelic)
My favorite Irish soda bread recipe, towards the end of this article. I post it every year. Enjoy!

Happy Saint 278th Pat's Day!
Happy 278th St. Patrick's Day America! The first recorded parade anywhere in America was in Boston in 1737. In Ireland, the Irish have been celebrating the feast of St. Patrick since the ninth century.

This year it's Monday, March 17th! With many being bit by the leprechaun earlier in time for the many parades through the country beginning today. The oldest and largest of the St. Paddy’s Day parades in the Western Hemisphere, dating back to 1762 -- New York City's St. Paddy's Day Parade -- steps off Fifth Avenue in New York City Saturday, March 16th fourteen years before the Declaration of Independence (NYC's oldest cultural and religious parade, 252 years ago but 253 St. Patrick's Day PARADE EVENTS AGO).

According to a PinkNews.com article, New York and Boston mayors plan to boycott St Patrick's Day parades in 2014 due to ban on gay marchers by the organizers. St. Patrick's Day is known traditionally as a religious holiday honoring the patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick as well as a celebration of the Irish culture.

Interestingly, the original color associated with Saint Patrick was blue. The color green and its association with Saint Patrick's Day began in the early 17th century with the use of green ribbons and shamrocks to celebrate St Patrick's Day. It is known that Saint Patrick used the symbolic shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish.

Although not a legal holiday in America, Saint Patrick's Day, is celebrated throughout the country. It is observed as a celebration of Irish and Irish American culture. Celebrations include prominent displays of the color green, eating and drinking, religious observances, and numerous parades. The holiday has been celebrated on the North American continent since the 1763.

One of the longest-running and largest Saint Patrick's Day parades in North America that occurs each year is in Montreal. The Canadian city flag includes a shamrock in its lower-right quadrant. The annual celebration has been organized by the United Irish Societies of Montreal since 1929. The parade has been held annually without interruption since 1824.

However, St. Patrick's Day itself has been celebrated in Montreal as far back as 1759 by Irish soldiers in the Montreal Garrison following the British conquest of New France.



Like many households on Saint Patrick's Day, in the center of our breakfast table you will find tasty, Irish, soda bread to celebrate the luck and charm of the Irish. I baked this easy Irish soda bread earlier today and just had to share my easy recipe by posting on my blogs. The great thing about this is the prep time was slightly less than 5 minutes and it baked in an hour.
INGREDIENTS:
► Flour 3 1/2 cups
► Sugar 3/4 to 1 cup (or try sugarfree alternatives; e.g., splenda or equal)
► Baking powder 1 tablespoon
► Eggs 2 medium size
► Milk 1 cup
► Melted butter - 1 stick
OPTIONAL:
► Raisins 1 cup
► Caraway seeds 2 tablespoons
► Be imaginative. I used Flax Seeds

Step 1 : Soda Bread Dough (3 min)
► Prepare oven at 375°; In large bowl combine dry ingredients
► Flour
► Sugar
► Baking Powder
► Optional ingredients - I added 1/2 teaspoon Flax seeds
► Add remaining ingredients - Milk, Eggs, Melted Butter


Step 2 : Knead Dough (2 min)
► Knead dough and divide the dough into 2 round loaves
► Sprinkle flour if dough is too moist and sticky
► Using a cake knife, mark the top of each dough loaf with an X

Step 3 : Place loaves in 375° oven (60 min)
► Wait at least 10 minutes before slicing

Total time - 1 Hour and 5 Minutes




“Every man desires to live long, but no man wishes to be old.”
--Jonathan Swift (1667-1745), Irish author and satirist.

See what you missed video montage of the acclaimed new documentary "A Whole Lott More" is here

See what you missed video montage for the special screening of the acclaimed new documentary "A Whole Lott More," hosted by Executive Producer, Loreen Arbus, is here! Watch, be inspired and see what you missed.

Event coverage report below originally posted November 4th, 2013.
"We made this film to bring more awareness to employment issues for people with disabilities. In a tough economy, everyone worries about their job, their home and their children’s futures.

With so much on our minds, is there even space to think about the 80% of Americans with developmental disabilities who remain unemployed?"


On Monday, November 4, 2013, there will be a special screening of the acclaimed new documentary, "A Whole Lott More".

SPECTACULAR "SEE WHAT YOU MISSED" FACEBOOK PHOTOS of the special screening "A Whole Lott More" ARE HERE! Yay!

The film follows three individuals - each has a different attitude towards work and a different disability. It is an important film about an often ignored issue and powerfully brings to light how, for the good of all Americans, more people with disabilities must be included in the working world. The film recently debuted at the HotDocs film festival in Toronto.

Loreen Arbus, Executive Producer of "A Whole Lott More," is hosting the screening.

Arbus is also the First woman to head up programming at a major U.S. Network and a Disability Rights Activist/Producer/Founder & Chair of “Women Who Care.”


Also in attendance will be Victor Buhler, Director of “A Whole Lott More” and Joan Browne, Former President of Lott Industries.

Victor Buhler, Loreen Arbus, and Joan Browne, who appears prominently in the film, will discuss the movie after the screening.


ABOUT “A WHOLE LOTT MORE”:

Around eight million people in America have a developmental disability. Those who work often find jobs in ‘workplaces’ - coalitions of businesses and social service agencies that traditionally provide manufacturing jobs. In Toledo, Ohio, there is Lott Industries. For decades Lott Industries competed successfully for auto industry contracts, employing 1200 workers with disabilities. With the collapse of the local auto industry in neighboring Detroit, Lott has struggled to keep its doors open.

The film looks at the impact of Lott’s struggles and examines the wider world of employment options for people with disabilities. Our documentary focuses on three unforgettable individuals – each with a different attitude towards work and each with a different disability. The film showcases their incredible resilience and makes the case for greater employment opportunities for all.


Below is the film trailer for the documentary “A Whole Lott More.”
