What is pollution, and what is not!

Notice what is missing from this list of pollutants from the US EPA. The one thing all governments are trying to make out as the one thing killing the earth, CO2 is not even listed as a pollutant, because it isn’t!. And it does nothing to cause pollution in places such as China like the list below does so in the meantime nothing gets done to fix the pollution problem in China because everyone is trying to fix the one thing that is not the actual problem.

“The EPA lists five major contributors to air pollution: Ozone, Particulate Matter, Carbon Monoxide, Nitrogen Oxides, Sulfur Dioxide, and Lead.”

“Even if you fervently believe that emitting carbon dioxide will lead to catastrophic global warming, CO2 has nothing — zero — to do with the air pollution in Beijing. And it’s not a mistake without consequences. China has a serious health problem to address, one that has effects carried past their national boundaries. If Beijing chooses to placate environmentalists by spending money on carbon dioxide mitigation and diverts resources from smokestack scrubbers and automobile pollution controls, the result will be unnecessary suffering, sickness and premature deaths.”

Myths about fracking

Matt Ridley has an article that goes over five myths about fracking of CSG thats shows the facts about it and how wrong the enviro-nazis are.

Here are five things that they keep saying which are just not true. First, that shale gas production has polluted aquifers in the United States. Second, that it releases more methane than other forms of gas production. Third, that it uses a worryingly large amount of water. Fourth, that it uses hundreds of toxic chemicals. Fifth, that it causes damaging earthquakes.

The total number of aquifers that have been found to be polluted by either fracking fluid or methane gas as a result of fracking in the United States is zero.. Two recent peer-reviewed studies concluded that groundwater contamination from fracking is “ not physically plausible.”

So much for one country

This is concerning that the main indigenous affairs advisor to the federal government is saying things like this.  He is saying that Australia does not exist because the aborigines have not acknowledged it’s existence, or that they did not even bother accepting the sham apology that Kevin Rudd did years ago.

“We can have all the Reconciliation Action Plans that we like, but there will be no reconciliation until Indigenous people are willing to accept the nation’s apologies; until we as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people acknowledge Australia’s right to exist”

Is your Technology use a sin

Having just read  this article from Desiring God I thought the author raised an important question, one that I have been questioning myself recently.  Is the use of technology (Facebook, Twitter, email) daily really a good use of my time.  I may not have put it at the level of a sin as the author does but I do know that I spend way too much time doing nothing until I have read every update on FB for the day.

“Many of us may realize the pull that technology has on us and feel the weight of our guilt because of the wasted time. But like Paul says, Jesus is our rescuer. He came to redeem us from each and every sin, including the squandering away our time on the iPhone.”

As the author point’s out while there are some benefits to technology there are also consequences to those actions, including the damages to the real world relationships we may have.

“No doubt, technology provides many benefits to our lives. But we can’t be naïve to the consequences, including primarily its impact on our in-person relationships. It entices us away from face-to-face contact and real authentic connections. More often than not, it’s a time waster. It sucks us in and consumes hours. We think we are logging in to check one thing and an hour later we finally come up for air. The limited granules in the sands of our life’s clock trickle down while our fingers swipe and click our days away.”

So for me this is another gentle reminder to pull back from my technology use and to catch up on my real world task list.
