    Inside Climate News ^ | 10/24/2012 | Robert Krier
    Scientists have been trying to come up with ways to weaken hurricanes since the 1940s. Nothing that has been tried so far has worked, but that hasn't stopped a virtual cottage industry of researchers from hatching the next big, bold proposal. The latest idea, published in the August issue of the journal Atmospheric Science Letters, comes at it from a new angle and at an opportune moment: A study published last week in the National Academy of Sciences concluded that large, damaging hurricanes will happen with greater frequency as global temperatures climb. Early efforts at hurricane modification involved "seeding" clouds...

    “The Russian people, like people everywhere, deserve the right to have their voices heard and their votes counted,” Clinton said during a speech that month in Lithuania. “And that means they deserve fair, free, transparent elections and leaders who are accountable to them.” After her speech, when demonstrations in Moscow grew still larger, Putin suggested that his political opponents were following marching orders from Clinton and her team. Opposition parties “heard the signal, and with the support of the U.S. State Department began active work,” Putin said. Kremlin officials repeated the charge in private meetings with U.S. diplomats, expressing a...

    THE US and South Korea have carried out a series of chilling military drills in a devastating response to Kim Jong-un’s missiles tests. The allies undertook a military exercise, codenamed Max Thunder, in a bid to “sharpen tactical skills” and “test aerial combat capability”. Around 1,000 US airmen and fighter jets have teamed up with the South Korean Air Force in a joint combat training to ensure they are ready to combat the North’s provocations, the Pacific Command (PACOM) announced today. On Sunday, President Donald Trump tweeted: “Our military is building and is rapidly becoming stronger than ever before. Frankly,...

    TWO NEW PIPELINES Before the civil war, two competing pipelines put forward by Qatar and Iran aimed to transport gas to Europe through Syria. Qatar’s plans were first put forward in 2009 and involved building a pipeline from the Persian Gulf via Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and Turkey. The gas field located 3000 metres below the floor of the Persian Gulf is the largest natural gas field in the world. Qatar owns about two-thirds of the resource but can’t capitalise on it fully because it relies on tankers to deliver it to other countries and this makes its gas more...

    Seattle, Wash., Feb 16, 2017 / 03:35 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- A Washington state florist must pay fines and legal costs for conscientiously objecting to serving a same-sex wedding, as the state’s supreme court upheld a lower court’s decision on Thursday. “It’s wrong for the state to force any citizen to support a particular view about marriage or anything else against their will. Freedom of speech and religion aren’t subject to the whim of a majority; they are constitutional guarantees,” Kristin Waggoner, senior counsel with the group Alliance Defending Freedom who argued the case before the Washington Supreme Court, stated Feb....

    Former President Barack Obama spoke out through a spokesman praising protesters opposed to President Donald Trump's executive order barring people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US. Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis released a statement saying that the former president was "heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country." "Citizens exercising their Constitutional rights to assemble, organize, and have their voices heard by their elected officials is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake," Lewis said. Though the statement avoided criticizing Trump directly, Lewis said that the president "fundamentally disagrees...

    The Secret Service has reportedly said it will open an investigation into Madonna after the singer told the Women's March on Washington that she had thought about 'blowing up the White House'. Donning a black p***yhat, the music icon caused controversy by dropping the F-bomb four times, sparking a slew of apologies from broadcasters airing the protest live. She went on to speak of her rage at the election result, telling the crowd she had thought a lot about 'blowing up the White House' but knew that it 'wouldn't change anything'. According to the Gateway Pundit, a spokesman for the...

    "The essential difference between the two lies in this: the civil disobedient does, while the revolutionary does not, accept the general legitimacy of the authorities," What Civil Disobedience Is Not, Chapter 2, pg-44-45. Asked whether he would try to forge a relationship with the president-elect, Lewis said that he believes in forgiveness, but added, "it's going to be very difficult. I don't see this president-elect as a legitimate president." This type of language and talk is not about civil disobedience or anything of the sort. It is Revolutionary speech against the legitimate authority. Lewis is very dangerous and while he...

    On January 2, 2013 President Barack Obama signed and enacted into “law” HR 4310, also known as Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012, which was part of the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). A large majority of concerned Americans were focused on the indefinite detention of US Citizens without trial clause contained in the NDAA, and missed HR 4310 which received little to no attention. The US Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948, more commonly known as the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, was first introduced as the Bloom Bill in December 1945 in the 79th Congress and subsequently passed...
