Medical Ethics ? ( 2 )

Once again I re-post an article that should be read and well considered , it is by The Opinionator at Up Pompeii . I make no comment .

Trust Your Muslim Doctor? --- Think Again

FROM THEOPINIONATOR:

Shiek Yer'Mami over at the Winds of Jihad has posted the results of a poll where the question asked was: Do you trust muslim doctors?

67% said they do NOT trust muslim doctors

I thought this was a good time to repost a blog I wrote regarding the Muslim Doctor's Association of Great Britain - which clearly shows that doubts about trusting muslim doctors are well founded. Can you imagine if other non muslim doctors cited non muslims as their priority?

UK MUSLIM DOCTOR ASSOCIATION EXPOSES THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT MUSLIMS

29/12/08 UPDATE - the original link to the MDDA no longer exists ---
HERE is the new LINK-- the constitution has not changed.

Below is the beginning section of the Constitution of the Muslim Doctors and Dentists Association of the UK -

Please note under section 2 Objects and powers- that their main object is to ADVANCE THE ISLAMIC RELIGION IN THE UK and to promote and preserve the good health of MUSLIMS in the UK.

NO WHERE IS IT FOUND THAT THE MUSLIM DOCTORS AND DENTISTS HAVE AS THEIR PRIME OBJECTIVE THE GOOD HEALTH OF THE NON MUSLIM BRITISH PEOPLE- in fact- the British people in general are not even given a mention as only muslims are a worthwhile. It is obvious that this lack of concern, by muslim doctors, for kafir patients in not exclusive just to the UK but would extend worldwide.


Why might that be?

Why don't you ask
Dr. Mohammed Asha or Dr Bilal Abdullaor EngineerKafeel Ahmed--oops sorry Kafeel died from burns suffered when trying to blow up Glasgow Airport.

Just think if the British Medical Association had a statement that British doctors should prioritize non-muslim British people --one can imagine the throngs of muslims pouring into our streets with angry contorted faces screaming and demanding.

What is even more alarming is that the
British Medical Association, by its silence, is condoning the clearly discriminatory behaviours of the moslem doctors - as stated in their M.D.D.A. UK Constitution. It is also disgusting that no government official or new media has even investigated this clear evidence of discrimination.

So please keep the below in mind the next time you go to your muslim doctor or dentist and remember that he does not place YOU or YOUR HEALTH as a priority. Muslim's come first by their very own "code of (un) ethics".



Constitution
The Muslim Doctors and Dentisits Association UK (M.D.D.A. UK)

1. Name

The name of the Association is Muslim Doctors and Dentists Association UK (the Association)

2. Objects and powers

2.1 The objects of the association shall be:-
2.1.1. To advance the Islamic religion in the practice of medicine in the United Kingdom
2.1.2. To advance medical education in relation to the doctrines, practices and traditions of the Islamic religion.
2.1.3. To promote research in various aspects of medical science and to disseminate and publish the useful results of such research.
2.1.4. To promote the preservation and protection of the good health of Muslims in the United Kingdom.



FROM THE OPINIONATOR - ADDENDUM:
Below is the UK General Medical Council standards of practice - emphasis mine



UK General Medical Council

The GMC is charged with supervision of the conduct of the profession. This includes educational standards, personal ethics and behaviour. The extent to which the GMC should question personal ethics and behaviour if they do not impinge on medical practice may be debated. They have a number of publications, many of which are available at their website. The booklet "Good Medical Practice"4 is sent to all doctors and available on-line. The start of the document is quoted:

    Patients must be able to trust doctors with their lives and well-being. To justify that trust, we as a profession have a duty to maintain a good standard of practice and care and to show respect for human life. In particular as a doctor you must:
  • Make the care of your patient your first concern.
  • Treat every patient politely and considerately.
  • Respect patients' dignity and privacy.
  • Listen to patients and respect their views.
  • Give patients information in a way they can understand.
  • Respect the rights of patients to be fully involved in decisions about their care.
  • Keep your professional knowledge and skills up to date.
  • Recognise the limits of your professional competence.
  • Be honest and trustworthy.
  • Respect and protect confidential information.
  • Make sure that your personal beliefs do not prejudice your patients' care.
  • Act quickly to protect patients from risk if you have good reason to believe that you or a colleague may not be fit to practise.
  • Avoid abusing your position as a doctor.
  • Work with colleagues in the ways that best serve patients' interests.

Clearly the MMDDA UK is in violation of the standards of medical practise as stated above.

Merry Christmas .

Can I wish all my readers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for 2009 .

This has turned out to be a disappointing year , we , the people , have been betrayed by greedy bankers and industrialists and by an incompetent government and an equally incompetent opposition . Any other company would have been allowed to fail if it had become essentially insolvent , but we are told that building societies and banks are special cases , no , if Northern Rock had been allowed to fail we would NOT have had this crisis . Now the foreign owned car industry has the begging bowl out and New Labour will , under the Prince of Darkness , rescue them at OUR expense . However there is no help for us , who are in personal debt , no , we are saddled with Browns wicked legacy for the next 30 years , he is deliberately wrecking this country ; I have seriously queried if he is mentally ill .
I have a granddaughter who will , in a few years , be qualified in an honoured profession , I say to her and her younger brother , start a life elsewhere in a country that appreciates hard working professionals and cherishes freedom , somewhere outside of the E.U.
This is not the Christmas message that I wanted to deliver but circumstances dictate honesty .

Nora passes on .


Farewell Nora , you will be deeply missed by all of your fans , may you Rest in Peace . Kathy Staff the much beloved star of " Last of the Summer Wine " has died , she has gone to join the other members of the show that have passed on in recent years . Of the original cast few remain , the most prominent being Peter Sallis ( Norman Clegg ) , top left in the picture above .
LotSW is a show that portrays the very best of Northern working class life , the honesty , work ethic and sense of fun , it does it without smut or filth . Even Howard and Marina never get to consummate their flirting , this is British humour at it's best .
It proves that the Ross / Brand filth is not required to get laughs from the public ; Cleggy , Howard , Smiler and Entwhistle are natural comical characters that charm and delight .
I can only hope that in Heaven Nora is chaseing Compo with her brush .

Democracy E.U. style .

From EU Referendum comes a report of a meeting between the scum of the E.U. and the respected President of a sovereign nation , I should warn the eurocracts that the Czechs have been threatened before and were prepared to send cavalry against tanks !!

Excerpts from the transcript of a meeting between Václav Klaus, President of the Czech Republic, and members of the Conference of the Presidents of the European Parliament, Friday 5 December 2008, Prague Castle.

Daniel Cohn-Bendit MEP: I brought you a flag, which - as we heard - you have everywhere here at the Prague Castle. It is the flag of the European Union, so I will place it here in front of you.

It will be a tough Presidency. The Czech Republic will have to deal with the work directive and climate package. EU climate package represents less than what our fraction would wish for. It will be necessary to hold on to the minimum of that. I am certain that the climate change represents not only a risk, but also a danger for the future development of the planet. My view is based on scientific views and majority approval of the EP and I know you disagree with me. You can believe what you want, I don't believe, I know that global warming is a reality.

Lisbon Treaty: I don't care about your opinions on it. I want to know what you are going to do if the Czech Chamber of Deputies and the Senate approve it. Will you respect the will of the representatives of the people? You will have to sign it.

I want you to explain to me what is the level of your friendship with Mr Ganley from Ireland. How can you meet a person whose funding is unclear? You are not supposed to meet him in your function. It is a man whose finances come from problematic sources and he wants to use them to be funding his election campaign into the EP.

President Vaclav Klaus: I must say that nobody has talked to me in such a style and tone for the past 6 years. You are not on the barricades in Paris here. I thought that these manners ended for us 18 years ago but I see I was wrong. I would not dare to ask how the activities of the Greens are funded. If you are concerned about a rational discussion in this half an hour, which we have, please give the floor to someone else, Mr Chairman.

EU Parliament President Hans-Gert Pöttering: No, we have plenty of time. My colleague will continue, because anyone from the members of the EP can ask you whatever he likes. (to Cohn-Bendit:) Please continue.

President Vaclav Klaus: This is incredible. I have never experienced anything like this before.

Daniel Cohn-Bendit: Because you have not experienced me..

Pesident Vaclav Klaus: This is incredible.

Daniel Cohn-Bendit: We have always had good talks with President Havel. And what will you tell me about your attitude towards the anti-discrimination law? I will gladly inform you about our funding.

Hans-Gert Pöttering: Brian Crowley, please.

Brian Crowley MEP: I am from Ireland and I am a member of a party in government. All his life my father fought against the British domination. Many of my relatives lost their lives. That is why I dare to say that the Irish wish for the Lisbon Treaty. It was an insult, Mr. President, to me and to the Irish people what you said during your state visit to Ireland. It was an insult that you met Declan Ganley, a man with no elected mandate. This man has not proven the sources from which his campaign was funded. I just want to inform you what the Irish felt. I wish you that you get the programme of your Presidency through and you will get through what European citizens want to see.

President Vaclav Klaus: Thank you for this experience which I gained from this meeting. I did not think anything like this is possible and have not experienced anything like this for the past 19 years. I thought it was a matter of the past that we live in democracy, but it is post-democracy, really, which rules the EU.

You mentioned the European values. The most important value is freedom and democracy. The citizens of the EU member states are concerned about freedom and democracy, above all. But democracy and freedom are losing ground in the EU today. It is necessary to strive for them and fight for them.

I would like to emphasize, above all, what most citizens of the Czech Republic feel, that for us the EU membership has no alternative. It was me who submitted the EU application in the year 1996 and who signed the Accession treaty in 2003. But the arrangements within the EU have many alternatives. To take one of them as sacrosanct, untouchable, about which it is not possible to doubt or criticize it, is against the very nature of Europe.

As for the Lisbon Treaty, I would like to mention that it is not ratified in Germany either. The Constitutional Treaty, which was basically the same as the Lisbon Treaty, was refused in referendums in other two countries. If Mr. Crowley speaks of an insult to the Irish people, then I must say that the biggest insult to the Irish people is not to accept the result of the Irish referendum. In Ireland I met somebody who represents a majority in his country. You, Mr. Crowley, represent a view which is in minority in Ireland. That is a tangible result of the referendum.

Brian Crowley MEP: With all respect, Mr. President, you will not tell me what the Irish think. As an Irishman, I know it best.

President Vaclav Klaus: I do not speculate about what the Irish think. I state the only measurable data which were proved by the referendum.

In our country the Lisbon Treaty is not ratified because our parliament has not decided on it yet. It is not the President's fault. Let's wait for the decision of both Chambers of the Parliament, that is the current phase of the ratification process in which the President plays no role whatsoever. I cannot sign the Treaty today, it is not on my table, it is up to the parliament to decide about it now. My role will come after the eventual approval of the Treaty in the Parliament. . .

...

Hans-Gert Pöttering: ... In the conclusion - and I want to leave this room in good terms - I would like to say that it is more than unacceptable, if you compare us, compare us with the Soviet Union. We are all deeply rooted in our countries and our constituencies. We are concerned about freedom and reconciliation in Europe, we are good willing, not naïve.

President Vaclav Klaus: I did not compare you with the Soviet Union, I did not mention the word[s] "Soviet Union". I only said that I have not experienced such an atmosphere, such style of debate in the past 19 years in the Czech Republic, really.
My thanks to Anthony Coughlan for passing this on.

A comment on our nation .

I spotted this at Longrider's blog , he has had the courage to do that which I should have done years ago , when I first saw the way this country was going . I leave Longrider to state his own position :

As I write this, Longrider Towers is awash with boxes, full of possessions gathered over the past two decades. Slowly, the house is becoming depersonalised in preparation for the new occupant. On Thursday evening we will drive to Portsmouth to catch the evening ferry and make our home across the channel.

This is the culmination of an idea that germinated when travelling through the Larzac in the summer of 1990. An idea that grew into buying a house and spending every available holiday for the past five years working to make it a home. There was a point a couple of years back, one starlit night in the quiet moments as one year died and a new one started, when I made the mental adjustment and there was more home than here. Now, looking at the home we’ve known for twenty-one years, I am ready to go.

When we first thought about living in France, our motivation was the countryside, the climate, the pace of life and the French way of doing things. A love/hate relationship with France became more love than hate. In the meantime, my love for my homeland has descended into contempt. Contempt for a population that is so passive that it fails to hold its political class to account. The French will bring the country to a grinding halt if their politicians upset them. They are not always right, but their willingness to say “non!” has my admiration just as the willingness of the British to accept the erosion of our civil liberties with a shrug earns my utmost derision. I have watched in despair as the righteous have eaten away like a cancer at the things that made this nation so great, that made Britain a wonderful place to live. No longer are we free to speak our minds for fear of the industry so willing and ready to take offence, of the righteous who decide what is “acceptable” or not. Thought crime is becoming a reality in 21st Century Britain.

We live in a country that has reversed the presumption of innocence, that undermines the very principle of justice, where mere suspicion is sufficient justification for the state to seize assets, where law is made on the basis of prejudice and puritan morality rather than reason, evidence or justice, where the citizen is being criminalised and treated as a suspect, where the police are becoming politicised and no longer adopt the Peelian principles, where politicians believe they, not the electorate, are the masters; politicians who treat the electorate with open contempt.

This is a land where youngsters leaving education have A* exam grades yet are barely able to string a sentence together, and mathematical illiterates such as I have to explain to them how to work out percentages. Where our history is being lost or rewritten, a nation that is being taught to be ashamed of its past rather than proud of its heritage.

France is not a common law country, but the French are not followed wherever they go by surveillance cameras, they are not subject to constant demands by the state to poke about in their business. If the state did, they would call a general strike and mean it. The French, when faced with law they do not like, will either get it changed or ignore it. Their national belligerence is something we have forgotten to our cost. I can travel almost all the way to Montpellier and come across only one set of traffic lights and they are switched off. The only speed camera is well signposted and if I take the back road I won’t see one at all. The standard of driving is better, more disciplined and courteous. Oh, and I can sit in my back garden in the summer, in the shade beneath my walnut tree and the loudest thing I will hear is next door’s chickens.

Yes, I’m going for the quality of life. I always was. It’s just a shame, though, that my own country has changed such that I want to leave it behind.

All that said, I’ll be back in December to work…

Chicago bound .



Chicago really is a beautiful city , the picture illustrates the majesty of this skyline , and I have to report that Doc Jr. has returned home ; for her now regards the United States as his home . Although the employment situation is bleak he hopes to target his skills at those sectors of society that the downturn will have little effect on ; for if one cannot afford to move home one tends to improve the home that you already have . The second group are the wealthy , who are not affected anyway , they are generally prepared to pay for high-end workmanship .
It is now up to him and his team to seek out a living and his colleagues have great faith in his abilities ( I believe that there is already a plan A and a plan B , plan C is being worked on ) , a different and polite approach can often take one far . So I wish them good luck in their endeavours and bon chance .

An historic event .

A momentous change in U.S. politics took place today with the election of Barack Obama to be the 44th. President of the United States . My son , Doc Jr. , who returns to his home in Chicago is ecstatic and discibes what as taken place as iconic , things will never be the same again .
You will know that I have backed Sarah Plain and the sight of Republicans booing her was sickening , they seem to have picked her as the scapegoat , when to pick an old man , lacking in charisma , to go up against a vibrant young man was entirely the fault of the party . I do hope that Palin gets a chance next time .
I want to see three things come from an Obama Presidency :
An adequate free health service for ALL who need it .
A toning down of U.S. military interventions .
An awareness by Black Americans of their true and equal place in society and an increase in literacy and general educational standards in that population to achieve that end .
The forgoing is an enormous task but one that needs doing and I truly say God Bless America .

Strange electoral choices .

Winter in Chicago--- from Fulton Park .


Doc Jr is to return to the U.S. in the next few weeks , back to Chicago , and he is so excited ; he is excited that when he gets back Obama may be the President-elect . Such a strange lad , I would have thought that he would tend towards being a Republican , tending towards the Tories here , he says that the U.S. will benefit from a Black person in the White House . If the polls are to be believed he may get his wish , however , in my opinion , he should be careful what he wishes for ; a U.S. that lurches to socialism may be too much for many , Obama may disappoint some of his own supporters .

Still , Doc Jr. is also looking forward to the Chicago winter , snow ,ice and -30oC temperatures , there really is something wrong with him ; The Doc likes the warm , maybe it's something to do with my old bones , so it will be summer when I visit him .

Fit to form a government ?




The above picture raises the question of whether the Tories are fit to be the government of the United Kingdom , if one saw this behaviour on the street one could think it the antics of idiots . Indeed it is the behaviour of idiots and if the Tories carry on in this way , under the inept leadership of Cameron , they will not win the next general election ; they are squandering the lead over Labour that they have . It was thought that Browns poor performance and the country's economic woes would lead to Labour loosing and the Tories winning , but Camerons total inaction puts that in doubt .

Away again .

Modern radiotherapy unit .


Having just returned from Cambridge after a great conference I am off to Birmingham to a cancer conference . It is at events such as this that my faith in human nature and the good in people is reinforced , the majority of the scientists who lead the fight against cancer are young , often under 30years of age .

Such as been the advances in cancer treatment that it is now being looked upon as a long term condition , I look forward to learn of the latest advances

Saturday, 27 September 2008

Off to Cambridge .

You will have noticed that Doc has not done much posting of late , mainly because I had not a great deal of good news to impart . Well salvation is at hand , tomorrow I go to a conference in Cambridge , such a beautiful place to visit .
It will be a pleasure to converse with people of equal intellect , who actually know how to conduct a civil conversation . It was an unexpected discovery to find that just as much knowledge exchange takes place over diner and in the bar ; it is un-nerving to be discussing philosophy at 0200am. and still making sense .
So I go to re-charge my batteries and leave the economic situation behind , along with the Tory party conference who will , I am sure , manage to convince the country that they are still unfit to govern . It is not only the Labour Party that needs a new leader , so do the Tories , the question is who?

A comment.

I posted this comment in response to a post by KGS at Tundra Tabloids entitled "We are losing Europe to Islam" . Tundra Tabloids is a fine site and I would heartily recommend you to visit it soon , your education is not complete without putting T.T. in your favourites .

Blogger the doctor said...

Whilest I agree with the basis of your argument in this fine post , I fear that effectively Islam has already taken Europe . The people have had to stand back and watch their national governments and the E.U. make Muslims "preferred" citizens . Benefits , housing , household goods and cars , all are given to the immigrant people ; our own people in need are given very little .
Yes , the native populations could do something about it ; sheer force of numbers would prevail in any confrontation , however our governments relies on the fact that we are law abiding citizens . The immigrants , on the other hand , care nothing for our laws and break them with impunity , knowing that the police are reluctant to take action against them . Islam has already won , I wish that it was not so .

The death of the British way of life .


Am I depressed ,despondent or just plain fed-up , no I am livid ; that this once proud nation has been reduced to a state of penury and subservience is enough to induce apoplexy in the mildest of men .

How the " greatest Chancellor in history " , one Gordon Brown , could so miss-manage the country's economy so badly is beyond belief . To reduce the people of this nation to a poverty level not seen since the war years , and that was not a governmental failing , such that even the middle classes are suffering and drastically cutting back , is not easy to do . However Brown has managed it and Darling refuses to do anything about it , even to make it worse , just to get back at Gordon . Personal debt , banks collapsing ,job losses , when will we wake up up and get rid of this scum , this winter people are going to die and their murderers will be Brown and his government of criminals .
I raise the spectre of subservience as a warning , Brown's illegal act in giving away to a foreign power the sovereignty of the U.K. by the Lisbon Treaty must be punished .
Not by a slap on the wrist or as The Huntsman ( grand chap ) says , a reconciliation commission , no they should be tried and when found guilty , treated in the same way as Black Jack Ketchum was treated .... see photo at top of post .

Paedophilia is legalised by the E.U.

It is with incredulity that I reproduce a post from SIOE's website regarding the legalising of paedophilia in the Lisbon Treaty . THIS IS NOT A MISTAKE .

The Lisbon Treaty permits paedophilia - the end of the EU?

Posted by Sitemaster on September 9, 2008

With thanks to Mr Niels Erik Søndergård

THIS POST IS TOO SERIOUS TO WARRANT A PICTURE.

Please read it right through.

The EU Lisbon Treaty of 2007, to all intents and purposes, is identical to the EU Treaty of 2004 (The EU Constitution rejected by French and Dutch voters), but with paragraphs being relocated and consequently renumbered.

Page 412 Article 21 of the Charter of the Lisbon Treaty is identical to Article 2-81 in the EU Treaty of 2004 and states, “Any discrimination on the basis of… sexual orientation or any other factor is prohibited”.

In all previous treaties, such as the Nice Treaty, there is a protocol which excludes paedophilia from the prohibition of discrimination (NJS 16 AUG).

Staggeringly, in the Lisbon Treaty, and also according to the view of the EU Information Office, there is no protocol on paedophilia!

The EU culture radicals have been there!

Without such a protocol, the Lisbon Treaty Article 21 legalises paedophilia in line with other sexual orientations. Some might argue that other articles in the Lisbon Treaty might be interpreted so as to contradict Article 21, but the fact is those writing the EU Charter Article 21 in the Lisbon Treaty were well aware of the exclusion of paedophilia from previous treaties.

So was this just an oversight? Hardly! Those national parliaments which have ratified the Lisbon Treaty have been asleep. Many, if not most, members of these parliaments have admitted they have not even read the Lisbon Treaty, preferring to entrust its construction to professional lawyers.

However, the authors of the Treaty have undoubtedly studied the earlier treaties carefully, to ascertain that all that they desired was carried over in the new treaty, while everything we the people want, was omitted. Government officials, therefore, have quietly but deliberately, chosen to preserve the nasty crime, paedophilia, so that it is now in our culture. Why?

The explanation is simple: they want to placate the Arab muslims. The supposedly holy prophet was happy with little girls, and even his deputy, Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeinei wrote in his book Tahrirolvasyleh in 1990:

“A man can have sexual pleasure of a child as young as a baby. But he should not penetrate her vagina.However, he declared the second form of child sex abuse is acceptable ….”

This sounds ridiculous to a sane person’s ears, but actually, Europe, with France in the lead, has worked hard for a cultural, political and economic alliance / entente (”Eurabia”) with the Arab countries, particularly since the oil crisis in 1973. Of course, this “cooperation” includes the acceptance of Muslim culture including child pornography and even abuse - on European soil.

How can our politicians and our most senior lawyers have allowed this disgusting practice become a part of our way of life?

Can they REALLY have DELIBERATELY made paedophilia legal?

WHAT ELSE IS IN THIS DAMNED LISBON TREATY?

WHAT IS TO BE DONE WITH THESE POLITICANS AND LAWYERS WHO HAVE GRANTED CHILD ABUSE RESPECTABILITY?

As to the answer to the last question in the post , it involves 15ft. of hemp rope and a lamp post .

McCain--Palin 2008 .

It is not often that I comment on U.S. politics , however I am moved to do so following the disgusting treatment that Sarah Palin is getting on both sides of the Atlantic . The Times contained sneering articles re: Mrs. Palin , the repetition of scurrilous lies and innuendo , it's petty mindedness is all too apparent for anyone open minded . Indeed it's Obama bias makes balanced reporting all but impossible ,
but when did the truth ever get in the way of a " good story " .
I am particularly upset at the fake sympathy regarding her 17 year old daughters pregnancy , how many politicians have sent their girls away to " Europe " as an excuse to have a child quietly and get it adopted , or even for them to have an abortion . Probably too many to count ; however Sarah Palin did what many mothers do in that situation , give her a hug and get on with dealing with the situation , if nothing else Palin is human , how few politicians have that quality .
The Democrats make much of her inexperience , but she has more executive experience the either Obama or Biden , she is at this moment the Commander in Chief of the Alaskan National Guard and running one of the largest States in the Union . I look forward in a few years to seeing the inauguration
of President Palin ,
Hail to the Chiefess .

Russia recognises two new nations .



I am pleased to report that Russia has recognised the sovereignty of South Ossetia and Abkhazia ; predictably the Americans have decried this action . I do not recollect them objecting when the Serbian province of Kosovo illegally declared it's independence ; the sheer hypocrisy of the United States is breathtaking . Accordingly I shall recognise them too .

Declaration

Be it known that The Doc Spot recognises the independence of South

Ossetia and Abkhazia as sovereign nations .

Doc Jr.--- An update .

The latest news in the family is that Doc Jr. is preparing to return to the U.S. following his economic migration ( temporarily ) to the U.K. , his departure , in about a moths time , will be bitter/sweet . I will once more be my own master and be able to do as I wish , but I suppose that I will miss his acerbic wit ; I commented that a prophet is without honour in his own land , and bemoaned a general lack of respect , to which the response was that children are there to " take the mickey " out of their parents . I suppose that this is the modern equivalent of the slave whose job it was to whisper "Thou art mortal" to their master .
Still the bright side of this is that I get to visit Chicago on a "free" holiday and annoy him .

The E.U.s biased sense of justice .

I felt that I had to repost this article by Tapestry at The Tap blog , whilest not wishing to be an apologist for the terrible acts committed during the breakup of Yugoslavia , it was not only the Serbs who committed war crimes .

Was Mladic's Father Murdered At Srebrenica?


Given all the efforts being made by the EU to force the Serbs to hand over war criminals such as Karadzic and Mladic, the world could be forgiven for imagining that the Serbs were the only side to commit war crimes in the Balkans. What is being overlooked, however is the other side of the story. There were equally barbaric acts committed by Albanians, Croats and others, but these for some reason have been going unpunished at the Hague Tribunals, with witnesses intimidated or mysteriously dying or disappearing.

There can be no justification for the kinds of acts that were carried out at Srebrenica in the Balkan Wars by Mladic, where thousands of Moslem men and boys were rounded up by The Serbs and machine gunned to death in the football stadium. As far as the world's media were concerned, these acts were committed by Serbs as if they had come from nowhere.

But if you try to understand why a man like Mladic could find committing such acts to be justifiable to his own conscience, you could ask a little more about his background and life's experiences. It turns out that in WW2 his father fought as a partisan and, when he was captured, that he was tortured and murdered by the Ustase.

The NAZI-supporting Croatians murdered millions of Serbs, gypsies and Jews during the war, and yet unlike the Serbs who are being hunted and condemned as criminals for relatively lesser acts of imitation, the Croatians and Albanian murderers have been allowed to live and work unchallenged, many treated to this day as national heroes.

Take Franceticu (pictured) who commanded The Black Legion. There has been a memorial plinth saluting him as a hero on public display in Croatia up to the present day, and yet he was responsible for the murder of tens of thousands of Serbs. The Black Legion operated out of Srebrenica in Bosnia. Is it possible that Mladic knew that his father was murdered there, and he saw his actions in Srebrenica as justified revenge for the loss of his own father?

As people weigh the terrible acts of war committed by Caucasian and Balkan nations upon each other, and see that those from one side are always the 'baddies' it is worth remembering that were it not for the Russians and the Serbs, Western Europe would not have regained its freedom from the Nazis. While condemning modern Russian and Serbian brutality, it is worth trying to see things from a more objective viewpoint than is achievable if you take the story only as presented by the world's media. In war there is often little justice, and it is not sensible to put ascribing guilt for the past in front of achieving peace for the future.

The Serbs are asking that the world negotiates with them about the loss of Kosovo. They are being refused the privilege of being treated as the sovereign nation, and they are being portrayed as the wrongdoers by the world's media at every turn.

If Western Europe were to be thinking about its future role in the world and seeking its own security, it would not be so blatantly humiliating a key ally of Russia. Our own future might depend of achieving a more objective and less moralistic posture towards the Balkans and to Russia, or we too might be forced to relive the horrors of the past.

UPDATE - background to the hunt for Mladic HERE. His father was from Bosnia and was murdered by Croatian Nazis when he was 2 years old.

Do we see the war criminals from the other factions in the war being prosicuted , NO only the Serbs , such is E.U. justice .

Medical ethics ; a thing of the past ?

An interesting post , written by Dr. De'ath and published on The Devil's Kitchen , it is self explanatory and is rather sad . I thought that medics and academics were above such infantile behaviour , I guess that they are not .

Freedom of expression or lack of it

A junior doctor has recently been suspended from work following an astonishing chain of events, amazingly this happened in the UK and not in China, I shall briefly outline the story below which demonstrates the dangers involved with vocally expressing one's anger at Comrade Brown et al's gross incompetence:

Doctors.net.uk (DNUK) is a website that doctors use for email and forum banter; Carol Black, a medico political stooge with umpteen committee positions, had recently been reelected unopposed into her position as chair of the Academy of the Medical Royal Colleges.

Given that the catastrophic failings of various recent reforms of medical training had resulted in so much suffering for so many junior doctors and their families, most doctors are not best pleased that no one has yet been held to account for these negligent reforms and that the same muppets are still manning the ship.

One doctor happened to express his dissatisfaction with events by posting some rather colourful comments concerning Carol Black's re-election. This doctor lives and works in Scotland, but strangely a key figure behind the government's reforms, a lady called Prof Elisabeth Paice, happened to be reading his words on this private DNUK forum and she reported these comments directly to one of her chums in the Highland Deanery. The doctor was then immediately suspended despite the fact that the comments were withdrawn from the forum rather rapidly.

The abuse of power that has occurred here seems to typify the way in which the filth who rule us 'govern' this country. Pulse has spoken to Prof Paice who tried to defend her position by claiming that she felt compelled to complain directly to this doctor's Dean due to the ‘excrementous and scatological’ language used. Personally I don't see why the withdrawal of the comment and a quick personal apology should not suffice.

Chickens come home to roost .


In 1990 South Ossetia declared its independance from Georgia , feeeling that they were ethnicly nearer to being Russian than Georgian , an uneasy "peace" with frequent clashes has ensued since . Today Georgia , in the middle of a Georgian led ceasefire , invaded South Ossetia ( shades of Pearl Harbour ) and tried to take contrl of the country . Georgia claims that it is only re-uniting a part of its territory , a stance backed by both the U.S. and the E.U. ; oh wait ! did not those two states say that Serbia could not regain its sovereign territory , Kosova , and did they not send troops in to defend Kosovo .
In response to this invasion , Russia sent in troops to protect its peacekeepers and its citizens , a most proper reaction in my view ; the Great Hypocrites , the Yanks and EU , back Georgia and tell Russia to withdraw its troops . This is reported on the BBC news and Sky news ; the corrupt BBC bias its reporting with 90% of the interviews being pro-Georgian and referring to the South Ossetians as rebels , such balanced reporting . Sky news on the other hand gave a balanced view and discussed the issues from both sides , and also made the comparison with Kosovo , it was not a propaganda site for the lies of the Georgian President . I never thought that I would praise Sky news , but well done .
It is reported that George Bush spoke to Vladimir Putin while they are together in China , I hope that Putin kicks the Georgian butt and the Yanks too , if they get in the way .

A Proposed Constitutional Amendment
Background and justification to Amendment 28

Whereas Religion is defined as an institution dedicated to improving social conscience and promoting individual and societal spiritual growth in a way that is harmless to others not participating in or practicing the same;

Whereas the United States of America was founded on the ideals of individual rights, including the individual right to practice one’s religion of choice, or no religion, and that there would be no compulsion of religion, nor state sanctioned religion, nor a “religious test” for participation in the body politic;

Whereas Islam includes a complete political and social structure, encompassed by its religious law, Sharia, that supersedes any civil law and that Islam mandates that no secular or democratic institutions are to be superior to Islamic law;

Whereas Islam preaches that it and it alone is the true religion and that Islam will dominate the world and supplant all other religions and democratic institutions;

Whereas Saudi Arabia, the spiritual home of Islam does not permit the practice of any other religion on its soil and even “moderate” Muslims states such as Turkey and Malaysia actively suppress other religions;

Whereas Islam includes as its basic tenet the spread of the faith by any and all means necessary, including violent conquest of non-believers, and demands of its followers that they implement violent jihad (holy war) against those un-willing to convert or submit to Islam, including by deception and subversion of existing institutions;

Whereas on 9/11/2001 19 Muslim hijackers acting in the name of Islam killed 3,000 Americans, and numerous other acts of terrorism have been directed at the American people around the world;

Whereas representatives of Islam around the world including Osama Bin Laden (architect of 9/11), the government of Iran including Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, HAMAS, Hezbollah, and other Islamic groups have declared jihad (war) on America, and regularly declare that America should cease to exist;

Whereas there is no organized Islamic opposition to violent proponents of Islam;

Therefore: Islam is not a religion, but a political ideology more akin to Fascism and totally in opposition to the ideals of freedom as described in the United States Constitution, especially the Bill of Rights.

Be it resolved that the following Amendment to the Constitution be adopted:

Article I

The social/political/ideological system known around the world as Islam is not recognized in the United States as a religion.

The practice of Islam is therefore not protected under the 1st Amendment as to freedom of religion and speech.

Article II

As representatives of Islam around the world have declared war, and committed acts of war, against the United States and its democratic allies around the world, Islam is hereby declared an enemy of the United States and its practice within the United States is now prohibited.

Article III

Immediately upon passage of this Amendment all Mosques, schools and Muslim places of worship and religious training are to be closed, converted to other uses, or destroyed. Proceeds from sales of such properties may be distributed to congregations of said places but full disclosure of all proceeds shall be made to an appropriate agency as determined by Congress. No compensation is to be offered by Federal or State agencies for losses on such properties however Federal funding is to be available for the demolishing of said structures if other disposition cannot be made.

The preaching of Islam in Mosques, Schools, and other venues is prohibited. The subject of Islam may be taught in a post high school academic environment provided that instruction include discussion of Islam’s history of violence, conquest, and its ongoing war on democratic and other non-Islamic values.

The preaching or advocating of Islamic ideals of world domination, destruction of America and democratic institutions, jihad against Judaism, Christianity and other religions, and advocating the implementation of Sharia law shall in all cases be punishable by fines, imprisonment, deportation, and death as prescribed by Congress. Violent expressions of these and other Muslim goals, or the material support of those both in the United States and around the world who seek to advance these Islamic goals shall be punishable by death.

Muslims will be denied the opportunity to immigrate to the United States.

Article IV

Nothing in this amendment shall be construed as authorizing the discrimination against, of violence upon, nor repudiation of the individual rights of those Americans professing to be Muslim. The individual right of conscience is sacrosanct and the practice of Islam within the privacy of home and self is strictly protected to the extent that such individuals do not violate the prohibitions described in Article III.

Brown : In the Name of God go .







Following the loss of the Glasgow East seat to the SNP , Labour politicians have beeen out telling us , the people , that we do not understand the real issues involved . That we cannot understand the global issues underpinning the collapse of the U.K. .
Such cheek , we do understand all too clearly , for when we look at the government I can say that ALL of them are my intellectual inferiors , there is not one of them that understands the dire state of Labour than myself and many of the British people .
To now demand a " clear the air leadership election " does not do ; I now demand the ultimate leadership election , a General Election , go to the Country now .
To quote Oliver Cromwell " In the Name of God go . " .

Global warming myth is finally dead .

I reproduce a truly learned article by one of the worlds leading scientists , a man who's credentials are unimpeachable , this is a long article but MUST be read .

It shows what a lie the so called climate change "scientists" have promulgated and corrupt politicians have raised taxes upon .


COMMENTS ON THE RECENT STATEMENT BY THE CLIMATE

COMMITTEE OF THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF NEW ZEALAND

Dr Vincent Gray


INTRODUCTION

As an Expert Reviewer for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for eighteen years, that is to say, from the very beginning. I have submitted thousands of comments to all of the Reports. My comments on the Fourth IPCC Report, all 1,898 of them, are to be found at IPCC (2007) and my opinions of the IPCC are in Gray (2008b)

I am therefore very familiar with the arguments presented by the IPCC, many of which have now been copied by the Royal Society of New Zealand, and the responses to them.

I will first comment on the Introduction

to make absolutely clear what the evidence is for climate change and anthropogenic (human-induced) causes.

The climate has always changed and always will. No evidence whatsoever for a human contribution to the climate is given in their following statement.

Their Summary is as follows:

The globe is warming

This statement is a lie. The globe is currently cooling. According to the CSSP Report (Karl et al 2007), there are currently nine authorities currently involved in providing a dataset of monthly global temperature anomalies. They are

NOAA’s National Climate Data Center (NCDC, GHCN-COADS)
NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS)
Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia (HadCRUT2v)
NOAA radiosonde network , (RATPAC)
Hadley Centre Radiosonde Network (HadAT2)
University of Alabama Lower Troposphere TLT MSU (UAH )
Remote Sensing Systems Lower Troposphere TLT MSU (RSS)
National Center for Environmental Protection Reanalysis (NCEP50)
European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts Reanalysis (ERA40)

Eight of these authorities agree that the globe is currently cooling. Only GISS disagrees.

because of increasing greenhouse gas emissions

No evidence is presented to justify this conclusion. There are “projections” of computer models but these are not predictions, they are merely the results of assumptions made in the model. No “projected” result has ever been successfully related to an actual change in the climate.

Measurements show that greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere
are well above levels seen for many thousands of years.


This statement is a lie. 90,000 measurements published in peer-reviewed journals since 1850, some by Nobel Prize-winners, have been suppressed by the IPCC because they do not agree with this statement. (Beck 2007). Stability of carbon dioxide in ice cores thousands of years old is questionable. (Jaworowski 2007). Recent measurements of carbon dioxide are confined only to exceptional circumstances over the ocean, and do not include measurements over land. (Manning et al 1994).

Further global climate changes are predicted,

This is another lie. Computer models of the climate have never been shown to be capable of prediction, and the IPCC recognises this by using the term “projections” for the output from the models. This statement refers only to greenhouse gas concentrations anyway, not to any other “global climate change”

with impacts expected to become more costly as time progresses.

“Expected” by whom?. By “experts” whose finance depends on favourable “expectations”. On what basis?. Purely on the opinions of these “experts”.

Reducing future impacts of climate change will require substantial reductions of greenhouse gas emissions.

Again, mere opinion, without any evidence that this “requirement” will work.

fostering evidence-based scientific debate

There is no “debate”. This is a one-sided statement which does not permit discussion or disagreement in public. At least I can debate it on the Internet.

We hope this statement makes a useful contribution to public understanding of climate change.

I hope that my comments will make a similar useful contribution.

THE STATEMENT

There has been an overall upward trend in global surface temperature since the beginning of the 20th Century.

Typically, from the nine global temperature records, you choose the least reliable, the surface temperature record, which suffers from numerous problems and biases, such as poor and unrepresentative sampling, poor quality control, and urban and land-change influences. The least reliable section was at the beginning of the 20th century, when presumed influences of greenhouse gases were negligible..

The surface record has been highly irregular and it has included several upwards and downward “trends”, none of which could be called “overall”. A downward “trend” was shown from 1940 to 1976, apparently uninfluenced by increased greenhouse gas emissions, It is difficult to explain why the greenhouse gases had a sudden reversal of influence for the upwards “trend” from 1976 to 1998. After 1998 the temperature has fallen, and there was a “trend” downwards from 2002 to the present day, unnoticed by this statement.

Most of the observed global warming over the past 50 years is very likely to be due to increases in greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere.

“the past 50 years” has been dishonestly chosen to eliminate the most reliable observed global
temperature records, the radiosondes, (from 1958) and the MSU satellites (from 1978) for exclusive consideration. This record actually shows “global cooling” from 1958 to 1976, so it is only the bit in the middle of the record, 1976 to 1998, which showed “global warming”; considered “very likely” to have been “due to increases of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere”. It is strange, that the greenhouse gases suddenly stopped operating from 1958 to 1976 and from 1998 to 2008.

As before, the opinion that this strange behaviour was “very likely” comes entirely from “experts” with a conflict of interest.

Greenhouse gases warm the lower atmosphere by allowing sunlight to reach the Earth?s surface but trapping some of the infrared radiation emitted by the Earth. Human activities have increased the concentrations of carbon dioxide, methaneand nitrous oxide since the mid-1700s. More than half of the carbon dioxide concentration increase has occurred since 1970.

This may be true, but there is no evidence that there have been any harmful effects as a result.

Human activities have also increased concentrations of aerosols (small ?air pollution? particles) in the atmosphere. These may have partially offset the heating effect of the greenhouse gases by scattering some sunlight back to space.

This may also be true, but it merely shows that net effects can be very complicated. Since more aerosols are emitted in the Northern Hemisphere than in the Southern Hemisphere, and over land rather than sea, one might expect greater cooling in the North and over the sea. In reality, it is the South and the oceans where temperature rises have been less.

Natural factors also cause climate variations. Climate has always varied, over timescales of decades, centuries and millennia. Until recently these variations have had only natural causes
? including changes in the tilt of the Earth?s axis, the shape of theEarth?s orbit, the energy output from the sun, dust from volcanic emissions, and heat exchanges between the atmosphere and the ocean (such as El Niño). This natural variability still occurs in addition to the human influences. Thus while the overall decade-to-century temperature trend is upwards, individual years can still be warmer or cooler than previous years
.

Here you display your prejudices. When the temperature goes up it is “very likely” due to human greenhouse emissions, It is only due to natural causes when it goes down, and great efforts must be made to eliminate these by averaging over the year, the decade, the century, in the hope that they can be covered up.

Further global changes are predicted. Many impacts are expected to be more costly as time progresses. Even if the concentrations of all greenhouse gases and aerosols were held constant at year 2000 levels, a further warming trend would be expected for at least several decades, due mainly to the slow response of the oceans.

Here we go again. Climate models cannot make “predictions”, but the IPCC soothsayers have no limit to what can be “expected” without any evidence.

Additional increases in greenhouse gas concentrations, and resulting changes in climate, will occur over coming decades unless concerted international action is taken to substantially reduce emissions. Impacts will vary regionally but, aggregated and discounted to the present, they are very likely to impose net annual economic costs which will increase over time as global temperatures increase.

The end is nigh! Prepare to meet thy doom!!! Unsubstantiated nonsense.

*Measurements show that:* * Atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide have increased by 35%, 150% and 18% respectively since around 1750^1 <#1> .

So what?


Air temperature (averaged over the globe’s surface) has risen through the past 100 years. The linear warming trend from 1906 to 20052 was 0.74°C [0.56 to 0.92°C]3.


Only if you believe the unreliable record all that way back. But why does it matter?


Globally-averaged sea level rose by 17 cm [12 to 22 cm] during the 20th century.


Highly unlikely. When tide-gauges are kept level with GPS the rise disappears.

Average northern hemisphere temperatures during the second half of the 20th century were very likely warmer than during any other 50-year period in the last 500 years and likely the warmest in the past 1300 years.

A dishonest trick obtained by comparing unreliable and unrepresentative “proxy” measurements with weather station data influenced by urban heating.

For the globally-averaged surface air temperature, 2005 and 1998 were the two warmest years in the instrumental temperature record (i.e. since 1850. Twelve of the thirteen years during the period 1995-2007 are the warmest since 1850).
The poor accuracy and undoubted bias from urban heating make these comparisons worthless. For information on the undoubted influence of urban heating, see Gray (200) and Gray (2008a). For a recent statistical demonstration of socio-economic bias see McKitrick and Michaels (2007)

Mountain glaciers and snow cover have declined on average in both hemispheres.
Spring peak river flows have been occurring 1 to 2 weeks earlier in basins with important seasonal snow cover in North America and northern Eurasia (based on observations over the period 1936 – 2000), due to earlier warming-driven snow melt.Arctic sea-ice summer extent has decreased at an average rate of 7.4% [5.0% to 9.8%] per decade since 1978.

There has been a global temperature cycle which had a peak value in around 1950, a trough around 2975 and another peak in 2000. It has been particularly prominent inn the Arctic where it is reinforced by the Atlantic Decadal oscillation. The recent fall in temperature is likely to reverse these effects. Some of these changes go back to the previous ice age and some are due to changes in local vegetation or precipitation.

Observations since 1961 show the average temperature of the global ocean has increased to depths of at least 3000m, with decadal fluctuations superimposed on this long-term trend.

The observations show a periodic behaviour related to the ocean oscillations. The measurements are highly inaccurate and have been revised twice already.

The ocean has become more acidic because of uptake of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Parts of the ocean emit carbon dioxide now and are thus more acidic than others. Organisms are already adapted to both extreme changes and any increase in carbon dioxide will only change the proportions. Evolution should easily handle any changes in ratio.

For New Zealand the air temperature shows substantial year to year fluctuations, but shows a clear increase over time, with a linear trend in the country-wide average of 0.9°C between 1908 and 2006. The average sea level rise over the twentieth century was 16±2 cm. The number of frost days has decreased since the 1950s at many New Zealand sites.

There was no overall change in temperature in New Zealand since 1950 and the previous figures are dubious. The sea level all over New Zealand has levelled out since GPS devices enabled accurate levelling. Doubtless it is possible to select those “many” sites that justify your prejudice.

Present global atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide far exceed pre-industrial values dating back at least 650,000 years.

Only if you suppress the information documented by Beck (2007) and Jaworowski (2007)

The global increases in carbon dioxide concentration since pre-industrial times are due primarily to fossil fuel use and land use change.
About 2/3rds of these anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions since 1750 are estimated to have come from fossil fuel burning and about 1/3 from land use change. About 45% of this carbon dioxide has remained in the atmosphere.

If it is true why should I care?

The combined influence on the energy balance of the Earth-atmosphere system of all anthropogenic emissions between 1750 and 2006 is likely to be at least 5 times larger than the influence of changes in solar output over the same period.

No part of the earth ever has an “energy balance” and there is no reason to suppose that such a balance exists. The Sun has much more influence than estimated here because you ignore feedback effects such as the influence on clouds and the influence of cosmic rays. Current changes in sunspot numbers are already having more effect than you are prepares to admit.

Very energetic volcanic eruptions (such as that of Mt Pinatubo in 1991) can place small particles high in the atmosphere, blocking sunlight and leading to cooling for a few years.

You usually ignore these effects when you derive “trends”.

Increasing atmospheric temperatures lead to an overall increase of water vapour in the atmosphere. Water vapour is itself a strong greenhouse gas, so this amplifies the warming effect of the increase in anthropogenic greenhouse gases.

You usually ignore the importance of water vapour by pretending it is a “feedback” to the effects of the minor greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide. You also conceal the fact that its distribution of water vapour in the atmosphere is extremely unbalanced, with most of it over the tropics and very little over the poles. Its role in the climate is almost completely unknown at present.

The frequency of heavy precipitation events has increased over most land areas, consistent with warming and observed increases of atmospheric water vapour.

Typical vague statement. “Increased” since when? where?, with what variability? Measurements are highly inaccurate.

Projections for the 21st Century from the IPCC’s4 2007 assessment (assuming no substantial efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions) include:

Note that these are “projections”, NOT “predictions” They are not based on evidence, only on partisan “expert” opinion.

An increase in globally-averaged surface temperature of 1.1 to 6.4°C by 21005.
A globally-averaged sea level increase of 18 to 59 cm by 2100. However these projections do not include uncertainties in climate-carbon cycle feedbacks nor the full effects of dynamic changes in ice-sheet flow, so do not provide an upper bound for possible sea level rise.
More heat waves, fewer frosts, and more heavy rain events are very likely.
The area affected by droughts is likely to increase through the 21st Century. Increases are likely in the peak wind and rain intensity in tropical cyclones

More irresponsible ranting.

Projections for New Zealand based on these global projections suggest6:
A New Zealand-average warming7 of 0.2 to 2.0°C by 2040 and 0.7 to 5.1°C by 2090. Fewer cold temperatures and frosts, and more high temperature episodes.
A stronger west-east rainfall gradient (wetter in the west and drier in the east) in winter and spring, and an increasing risk of extreme rainfall as the century progresses.
Increasing drought risk during this century in areas which are currently drought-prone.
An increase in New Zealand-averaged sea level of the same order as the IPCC global projections.
Natural year to year variations in New Zealand’s climate will be superimposed on top of these projected anthropogenic changes.

They are getting 38 years of comfortable well-paid work before everybody tumbles to the scam in 2040.They have an excuse already ready for when it fails, and can be extended another 50 years. It is in the last sentence.

Some potential further risks are being quantified by ongoing research:
Some studies suggest substantial parts of the Greenland ice cap, and perhaps of the West Antarctic ice sheet could melt over the coming 1000 years. Global average sea level at the height of the last interglacial about 125,000 years ago (when average polar temperatures were around 3°C to 5°C warmer than now) was likely 4-6 m higher than at present.

The standby of contemporary scientific research is the could be/might be discovery, which is merely “suggested”. And “likely”.

Models indicate some slowing of the oceanic meridional overturning circulation (MOC) is very likely during the 21st Century. The MOC carries warm water into the North Atlantic where it cools, sinks and then spreads through the other ocean basins at depth.

No limit to this stuff.

As the globe warms, the oceans and biosphere may become less efficient at absorbing carbon dioxide, leading to a larger fraction of the anthropogenic emissions remaining in the atmosphere.

Maybe, maybe.

Reducing the future impact of climate change will require substantial reductions of net emissions of greenhouse gases. Major international policy changes would be required to deliver these reductions but various technologies exist to provide them:

Here it comes. Punish the people for being too prosperous.

More efficient use of energy, e.g. better designed and insulated houses, more efficient appliances and industrial processes
Renewable energy sources, e.g. hydropower, geothermal, wind, marine, and solar
Lower-carbon fossil fuels such as natural gas and the capture and storage of emissions from power plants
More efficient transport and urban systems and the use of appropriate biofuels and other renewable energy sources to power transport
Reforestation, reduced deforestation, and lower emission forms of agriculture

Green Party propaganda. There is an election coming up.
I have never understood why it is so necessary to punish the animals as well as the humans. Cows and sheep do not eat fossil fuels so they make no contribution to the “human” carbon dioxide emissions. They eat grass, and convert most of it into meat, milk and wool. A small residuum is emitted as methane which is converted back to carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and then is converted into more grass
I burn wood in a wood stove. It is entirely converted into carbon dioxide which helps grow more trees. I just recycle it. So do the animals. But I suppose they will be after me too soon.


CONCLUSION
This Climate Change Statement is veritably an orchestrated litany of lies, to borrow a phrase. As a longstanding member of the Royal Society of New Zealand I am unable to tolerate such a departure as this from the supposed objectives of fair or responsible comment on scientific matters, so I have resigned in protest.

That sinking feeling .


I looked for an image to represent " Great Britain " going down the pan , however I saw this , it is perfect , the once Great Britain reduced to a sinking rowing boat by Gordon Brown . We have seen our once prosperous nation reduced to a basket case by the worst Chancellor and Prime Minister ever , Brown has managed to snatch defeat from victory in the economic war .
Our country's economy is in the severest recession / depression / satgflation in a very long while , curtsey of Prudence Brown . This is the "man" who said " there will be no return to the Tory days of boom and bust" , yes I agree this is no boom and total disaster .
With the Westminster pigs filling their trough , the public on fixed incomes and pensions are faced with actual inflation of 18% ,rising prices for everything and the threat of 60+% rises in fuel bills ; it is becoming a fact of life that " do we eat today ?"
is asked often . When the poor start to die as a result of not being able to heat their homes or feed themselves , who will be held responsible .... no one of course .
It is a sad fact that Brown is actually no better than Mugabe , the politicians live well and the poor starve ; such is Britain today .
Will no one pay for me to leave this hell hole !!!!
