Oil, water, war...

The Toronto Sun said 3500 people showed up for the "red rally" in Toronto. But fellow blogger, "where'd that bug go?" said "i believe the attendance was between 600-800." That's quite a wide gap in between those numbers.

The Waukesha Water Utility hopes to avoid a lengthy process of applying for Lake Michigan water access through a compact needing approval by all the region’s states by arguing its ground water system’s connection to the Great Lakes basin and easterly flow should deem it eligible with or without the new guidelines in place.
But whether the utility succeeds in its strategy, laid out in letters sent this year to the governor’s office and Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, Waukesha still must gain approvals for a diversion from all eight Great Lakes governors and two Canadian provinces’ leaders, a DNR official said Friday.


This is interesting, a machine that pulls the humidity from the air and turns it into drinking water. A few are also touting the machines as a potential solution to the clean-water shortages that plague the Third World. If it became widely used in Third World Countries, I wonder if it would have any environmental impact. I have no idea, any thoughts?


It appears thehe Alberta oil sands "are in danger of getting bogged down by escalating labor and materials costs." There has been criticism that Alberta is losing money by allowing raw product from the oilsands to be shipped to the United States for upgrading, Premier Ralph Klein says he’s asked his energy minister to review the issue. But BP has already invested US$3B in a northwestern Indiana refinery to handle Canadian crude. If you read the whole article, it also mentions another possible plant in Chicago. It doesn't sound like much will come of the issue for a plant in Canada, but who knows?

There will be no direct Canadian government subsidies for the proposed Mackenzie Valley natural gas pipeline, but an ownership position is possible, says a newly appointed chief federal representative for the project.

Just days after German help in the south was ruled out, a defense ministry source says that German military aircraft are seeing action in the volatile southern region of Afghanistan.





The link between Mind and Social / Environmental-Issues.

The fast-paced, consumerist lifestyle of Industrial Society is causing exponential rise in psychological problems besides destroying the environment. All issues are interlinked. Our Minds cannot be peaceful when attention-spans are down to nanoseconds, microseconds and milliseconds. Our Minds cannot be peaceful if we destroy Nature.

Industrial Society Destroys Mind and Environment.

Subject : In a fast society slow emotions become extinct.
Subject : A thinking mind cannot feel.
Subject : Scientific/ Industrial/ Financial thinking destroys the planet.
Subject : Environment can never be saved as long as cities exist.


Emotion is what we experience during gaps in our thinking.

If there are no gaps there is no emotion.

Today people are thinking all the time and are mistaking thought (words/ language) for emotion.


When society switches-over from physical work (agriculture) to mental work (scientific/ industrial/ financial/ fast visuals/ fast words ) the speed of thinking keeps on accelerating and the gaps between thinking go on decreasing.

There comes a time when there are almost no gaps.

People become incapable of experiencing/ tolerating gaps.

Emotion ends.

Man becomes machine.



A society that speeds up mentally experiences every mental slowing-down as Depression / Anxiety.

A ( travelling )society that speeds up physically experiences every physical slowing-down as Depression / Anxiety.

A society that entertains itself daily experiences every non-entertaining moment as Depression / Anxiety.



FAST VISUALS /WORDS MAKE SLOW EMOTIONS EXTINCT.

SCIENTIFIC /INDUSTRIAL /FINANCIAL THINKING DESTROYS EMOTIONAL CIRCUITS.

A FAST (LARGE) SOCIETY CANNOT FEEL PAIN / REMORSE / EMPATHY.

A FAST (LARGE) SOCIETY WILL ALWAYS BE CRUEL TO ANIMALS/ TREES/ AIR/ WATER/ LAND AND TO ITSELF.
