 - Geoengineering has been back in the news recently after the US National Research Council endorsed a proposal to envelop the planet in a layer of sulphate aerosols to reduce solar radiation and cool the atmosphere.

The proposal has been widely criticised for possible unintended consequences, such as ozone depletion, ocean acidification and reduced rainfall in the tropics. Perhaps even more troubling, geoengineering is a technological fix that leaves the economic and industrial system causing climate change untouched.

The mindset behind geoengineering stands in sharp contrast to an emerging ecological, systems approach taking shape in the form of regenerative agriculture. More than a mere alternative strategy, regenerative agriculture represents a fundamental shift in our culture’s relationship to nature.

Regenerative agriculture comprises an array of techniques that rebuild soil and, in the process, sequester carbon. Typically, it uses cover crops and perennials so that bare soil is never exposed, and grazes animals in ways that mimic animals in nature. It also offers ecological benefits far beyond carbon storage: it stops soil erosion, remineralises soil, protects the purity of groundwater and reduces damaging pesticide and fertiliser runoff.

But these methods are slow, expensive and impractical in feeding a growing population, right?

 - Magnesium is already known by many as a tremendous booster of health. It contributes to sound sleep, helps with digestion and constipation, relieves muscle aches, and even improves heart health and migraine headaches – but here’s a shocker: magnesium in small doses leads to an astonishing reversal of depression.

Magnesium is one of the most important elements in the human body. It is a micronutrient and mineral that is involved in thousands of biochemical processes crucial for the proper functioning of the cardiovascular, alimentary, endocrine, and osteoarticular systems, but oddly, it seems absolutely vital to regulating our mood and levels of happiness.

In a breakthrough study conducted by researchers at the Larner College of Medicine at the University of Vermont and published in PLoS ONE has found that just 248mg of magnesium per day leads to an about-face of depression symptoms in study subjects.

 - It seems the FDA is doubling down in its wild jihad against natural and alternative health products, individual choice and anything that threatens Big Pharma’s profits and control.

After years of claiming that homeopathy is an ineffective placebo, the FDA is now claiming that it’s dangerous. The FDA has announced plans to crack down on the sale of a number of homeopathic products.“In recent years, we’ve seen a large uptick in products labeled as homeopathic that are being marketed for a wide array of diseases and conditions, from the common cold to cancer,” FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said in a statement announcing the new policy.

Naturally, con-men like Paul Offit are jumping on the bandwagon, labeling homeopathic manufacturers as snake oil salesmen and rejoicing over the coming holy war being launched by his fellow fanatics who believe that only doctors, successful CEOs and bureaucrats are capable of making choices for individuals. As always, Offit fails to mention how his very existence as a “professional” is due to a lifetime of sucking at Big Pharma’s tit. But that’s another article for another day.

There has long been speculation that cosmic rays (artist's impression) – charged particles travelling through space - may affect our atmosphere. But now researchers show that the rays trigger the formation of 'seeds' in our atmosphere which allow clouds to grow around them - Cosmic rays from exploding stars can influence weather on Earth, a pioneering study has found.

There has long been speculation that cosmic rays – highly charged particles travelling through space - may affect our atmosphere. But now researchers at Denmark Technical University show that the rays trigger the formation of 'seeds' in our atmosphere. These seeds allow clouds to form around them – and can potentially have a cooling effect on the Earth.

Cosmic rays can be flung out by our own sun and from exploding stars - supernovae. The researchers claimed the discovery helped fill in a mysterious gap in our knowledge of our climate and may help to explain unusual periods of warmth and cold during the past 2,000 years. The researchers said the effect of cosmic rays 'gives a physical foundation to the large body of empirical evidence showing that solar activity plays a role in variations in Earth's climate.'

As clouds are essential for the amount of solar energy reaching the surface of Earth, they said the implications can be significant for our understanding of why climate has varied in the past and also for future climate changes. They cited as examples the Medieval Warm Period around year 1000AD – around 1-2C (1.8-3.6F) warmer than in the early 20th century. The other was the Little Ice Age 1300-1900AD when temperatures dropped across northern Europe by 0.6C (1F) and glaciers advanced across the Alps. Both periods were consistent with changes in solar activity.

 - The danger from the Global Warming crowd is that they are misleading the entire world and preventing us from what is dangerously unfolding that sparks the rapid decline in civilization – GLOBAL COOLING. 

previously warned that this is not my opinion, but simply our computer. If it were really conscious it would be running to store to buy heating pads. This year will be much colder for Europe than the last three. It will also be cold in the USA. We are in a global cooling period and all the data we have in our computer system warns that the earth is turning cold not warm.

This cooling is very serious. This decline in the energy output of the sun will manifest in a commodity boom in agriculture as shortages send food prices higher. We will see famine begin to rise as crops fail and that will inspire disease and plagues. We will see the first peak in agricultural prices come probably around 2024 after the lows are established on this cycle. We have been warning that this rise would begin AFTER 2017.

- Whether you live in the Northern Hemisphere or in the Southern Hemisphere, the Solstice is a time to celebrate, to let go of that which no longer serves us, and to set the energy for the new Solar year!

You're invited to join us for the Solstice group distant healing event on Thursday, 21 December.
 
The focus of the Solstice event is the release of stress and disharmony that we've accumulated in our energy fields during the past year, and to set the energy for the coming year, both on a personal and a planetary level.

Each participant will receive distant healing work as an individual and as part of the group, and will play a part in holding the energy for the morphic field and the planetary side of the healing.

Awakening, critical mass awakening, Paul A Phillips, New paradigm, consciousness, empowerment, transformation, mass awakening, world change - People have awakened as a consequence of a number of synchronicities (meaningful coincidences) that have happened from time to time during their lifespan. The mass awakening and its gathering momentum can also be attributed to the ease of access to which truth-revealing information has been available in recent years through the internet and in particular, the independent media, exposing the evil machinations of the elite…  However, there is a bifurcation going on:

While many have been awakened the internet has also dumbed down people in the droves. Some of this devastating dumbing down can be attributed to the affects of social media control such as Facebook and how Google limits information through controlling algorithms… Further, the independent media is under threat with accusations of “fake news.” Then there’s the threat surrounding net neutrality.

Many of the dumbed down would find the truth too unbearable as it would shatter their illusions of the fake world they believe to be real… but they are living as victims…

 - As the science shows, there seems to be a field of consciousness that connects all things in the Universe, a concept which has only just been scratched by science. If this unifying field very well exists, numerous questions follow—is reality as we know it a holographic projection of this higher consciousness? Where does this consciousness come from? And why are we here if this is merely an illusory projection of something more profound?

These deeper mysteries of space, time, energy, matter, biology, and consciousness are the fundamental questions of our existence. And it seems we are now at the precipice of this sacred knowledge—knowledge which for millennia has been waiting for us to re-access. Imagine the potential for life as we know it if we could begin to better tap into this intelligence?

Soon, every science fiction and fantasy movie might be closer to reality than we would have ever thought possible.

 - In the modern-day, informed consent is one of the most pressing issues/concerns with regard to our health freedom.

Informed consent is defined as having the right to make informed choices while knowing the risks involved when offered medical treatment. Further, for informed consent to truly exist, whether it’s for a patient or a participating subject for medical research, individuals involved should not be coerced or criminalized for refusing the offered intervening medical treatment.

Informed consent was an established basic human right for our health freedom after a Doctors Trial in Nuremberg 1947. However, in recent times, there has been a disturbing growing trend where the medical ethical principle of informed consent has been violated.

 - Trapped in a food desert, deep in the South, there’s a depressing burger joint pretending to be a a retro “Drive-In” blast from the past. It is in fact a bleak vision into a corporate Idiocracy. A corporatocracy for the masses.

In this monochromatic human corral, the underpaid workers miserably slop cold burgers and burnt fries onto cafeteria trays as they shout “958!” “959!” into the P.A. system. Bright lights hang down over uneven tables and quick tempoed music goes “duh! duh! duh!” as a repellent for migraine sufferers. But really it’s an unconscious command to hurry! hurry! hurry! Shove that dry burger down the gullet even though it was a frozen coin tossed on an oil-slicked grill just seconds ago.

A woman brings her last, shriveled french fries to her mouth as they bleed grease down her fingers where she pinched them. She barely wipes them off before smearing them on her iPad like a preschooler fingerpainting.

Eight TVs flash and blare with sexual overtones to sell more toxic junk like soda, cologne and more “convenience” food to sleepy eyed patrons, mouths agape before they sway painfully back to their cars. When they drive home they’ll be besieged by ugly billboards and obnoxious radio ads to repeat the same eating ritual with promises of eternal pleasure.
