There have been several significant developments over the past few decades in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) which now require special and immediate attention. The multitude of oil spills — both large and small — require extraordinary remediation measures, as well as the application of safe and proven technologies which will not make the existing hydrocarbon pollution worse. There are other major sources of water pollution in the GOM which have also became apparent, particularly since the eye-opening 2010 BP oil spill.

Industrial Scale Rip Off Of Kiwis By Energy Companie

Prime Minister John Key has unashamedly allowed energy companies to rip off Kiwi families through the emissions trading scheme (ETS) to the tune of $1.4 billion, says New Zealand First.

“Mr Key must explain why he has allowed this rort to go on,” says Leader Rt Hon Winston Peters.

An Infometrics economic analysis revealed in Parliament today by New Zealand First shows that:

Customers and households are being charged substantially more that the ETS costs paid by energy companies

Energy companies are charging $11 a credit factored in to customers when they are purchasing foreign carbon credits for $3

$1.4 billion has been taken from Kiwis through overcharging customers an average 75% more than the energy companies paid in ETS compliance costs.

“As an example, Genesis Energy took an extra $36.7 million between 2010-2012, thus misleading mum and dad investors by inflating the share value when the company was sold off by the government.

“Clearly this was a strategy by the National Government to push up the ‘value’ of Genesis to squeeze as much out of the sale as possible.

“While this rort has gone on the government has rejected a proposal by iwi to use the ETS to create jobs and investment in the regions with little cost to the taxpayer.

“This is sadly typical of the current National Government – pushing private profits while caring little for New Zealanders who need jobs and a decent standard of living, and continuing to ignore the plight of the regions,” says Mr Peters.

(NaturalNews) Very often, there is nothing so destructive and harmful as government bureaucracy, in which nameless, faceless automatons make decisions based on inflexible, arcane and inane rules.

And it isn’t just the federal bureaucracy; states can be just as guilty of blindly implementing policies that are clearly idiotic. Take Michigan, for example, and the subject of food.

Cannabis: It’s simply human rights and equality

By Andy Gregory

The Rotorua Daily Post article by Annemarie Quill is an example of someone who doesn’t see, or want to accept, the society she lives in and what’s going on around her.

Hundreds of thousands of New Zealanders, including people she will like and respect, use cannabis regularly.

The so called “frightening” statistic in her article, that 9 per cent to 14 per cent of New Zealand and Australian citizens use cannabis, is neither alarming nor unknown. Continue reading Cannabis: It’s simply human rights and equality

New World Order: Blueprint of Madmen

Yes there are people who never care another people like the elite like David Rockefeller, Bill Gates, George Soros, and more and they want to bring down the world population because they want the world for themselves and this very dangerous for humanity. And it’s up to us to wake up and stand up and there are still some good people and the problem the good people are allow the evil people to take control because we allow and accept the system and the principle for their agenda.

We don’t have to go along with the system and the principle of their agenda because it’s design to bring us down to our knees and to destroy us. Only if we realize what is really happen in reality. And it’s time to wake up and get off our knees and get to work. The Elite are preparing for themselves and they have secret organic farm and their cattle feeding on organic grass and feeds because they know whats coming. And they will not tell us to prepare ourselves for worse because it’s not part of their agenda. I’ll say to myself “time for me to get more fundamental for growing my own food and you should do the same because time is short”.

Currently, the world is facing a number of problems, politically, socially and economically. While we may be paying attention to important stories such as the Islamic State’s movements in Iraq and the ongoing fighting in the Gaza Strip which are extremely important, there are dealings being made behind our backs of which we know virtually nothing about. There are major international trade deals in the works and the government seems to be getting prepared for the fallout.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) has its roots in the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) organization. In 1994, APEC stated in its Bogor Declaration that:

With respect to our objective of enhancing trade and investment in the Asia-Pacific, we agree to adopt the long-term goal of free and open trade and investment in the Asia-Pacific. This goal will be pursued promptly by further reducing barriers to trade and investment and by promoting the free flow of goods, services and capital among our economies….

We further agree to announce our commitment to complete the achievement of our goal of free and open trade and investment in the Asia-Pacific no later than the year 2020.[1] Continue reading The Coming Calamity, the Coming Resistance

Forcing private companies to become mass surveillance hubs

The Ministry of Health says it will not adjust immunization targets for the West Coast, even though the ever-growing Gloriavale Christian Community refuses to immunize its children.

The group, now numbering over 400, lives communally on the shores of Lake Haupiri, inland from Nelson Creek.

Gloriavale members promote breast-feeding as a way of boosting their children’s immune systems, but reject vaccinations.

Despite growth at the commune, the overall vaccination rate on the West Coast fell to 79 per cent for eight-month-old babies in the last quarter, which that a good [edited by Matthew Miller] figure in the country.

Ministry of Health chief adviser, child and youth health, Pat Tuohy said the ministry was aware of the high decline (opt out) rates on the West Coast and was working with the West Coast District Health Board to help it achieve the immunization health target.

Meat, Seafood Prices Rising Due to Widespread Drought and Disease: USDA

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Overall U.S. food inflation will remain near the historic norm in 2014, even as prices for meat and seafood are pushed higher by disease and widespread drought, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said on Friday.

Prices for shelf-stable and processed items made by companies such as General Mills and Kraft Foods Group are relatively flat.

“It appears that supermarkets are maintaining minimal price inflation on packaged food products, possibly in an effort to keep prices competitive in light of rising cost pressures for most perishable items,” the USDA said.
