Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Solar Power Indeed

NASA warns solar flares from 'huge space storm' will cause devastation.
The Telegraph (UK)

Space weather 24/7

We've all now seen what happens when a single oil rig goes badly wrong, has anyone thought about the potential consequences of a solar flare wiping out the electronics of every single oil rig in the world, and most other electronics as well?

"The best laid plans of mice and men gang aft agley" - Robert Burns.

Here is an audio file of the flare from June 12, 2010. The "whoosh" is the solar flare.

Whistleblower in Jeapordy

Free Bradley Manning!
Wikileaks video leaker nabbed by creepy snitch
by Justin Raimondo, June 09, 2010 in AntiWar.com

We are coming to resemble the former Soviet Union, in which every whistlebower was seen as the enemy of the state, and to be silenced by any means necessary. America is hosting a nest of vipers, which needs to be routed out entirely, and many of them are in charge.

The Abominations of Greed and Hubris

From The Daily Beast comes a horrific compilation of photos of damage done to nature, sea and humanity by the BP oil catastrophe. You need to to see this. We must get off the junk, and we must do it now. We cannot poison our world.

Shame upon those who allowed such, beginning withourselves for not pushing harder to end the oil monopoly years ago. Shame on the government colluders and the corporate bean counters who ris e to great power on the broken backs of dead workers, wildlife and ways of life. Shame on BP, and shame on Tony Hayward, CEO of BP sold £1.4 million of his shares in his company shortly before the Gulf of Mexico oil spill caused its value to collapse. Shame.
