The End Game or: How the Dupes were Duped or: The Euro Ten Years on

2011-12-10 1 comment

The Euro was probably the most hyped-in currency the world may have ever known.

That fact alone should have been reason for suspicion.

In this article we contrast some of the eulogies heaped on the Euro back in around 2001/2002 when it was introduced as a tangible currency with these past weeks’ near-obituaries.

Neutrinos, Physics, Meteors and the Survival of Humankind

2011-11-18 2 comments

As you may have noticed, CrisisMaven recently dabbled in speculative thought about the role of a universe-wide encyclopedia cum news service.

The reason this came about was that recently at the Large Hadron Collider around Geneva/Switzerland and crossing under the French border a team of scientists reported they had reason to believe that neutrinos created during the LHC experiments and to be captured in the neutrino observatory in Gran Sasso/Italy actually arrived there “ahead of time”, i.e. at a faster pace than currently allowed by the theory of relativity.

When these news first broke CrisisMaven felt it was too early to comment as the findings were highly and hotly disputed, even from amongst the collaborators, however, it reminded him of ideas about the role neutrinos might have in a universe teeming with natural (and artificial) intelligence.

Archaeology, the Internet and Neutrinos

Or: Space and the Universe are a Palimpsest

.

Most recently Israeli archaeologists unearthed a crusader’s inscription believed to be around 800 years old and, which is why it makes headlines, written in Arabic.

For those who have followed archaelogical progress over several decades (and reconstructed it from the very beginnings of “modern” archaeology starting probably with people like Schliemann trying to find Troy etc.) it is quite obvious that not only have many things been unearthed in recent years that former generations would have never believed to have existed but it seems clear that what has so far been found is but a fraction of what there is to be found at some future point; and then some, because probably most of the stuff will never be found, go unrecognised or being inadvertently destroyed, e.g. while excavating for a new underground rail system etc. Read more…

Why Our Future Must Be Solar As Our Past Once Was

When you put a pot on the hot plate on your stove and switch on the heat – do you not expect the pot to get hot?
When you add energy on the earth’s surface to what the sun and geothermal influences already provide would you not expect the earth respectively the atmosphere to get warmer?
Then why do scientists not consider this as a source of global warming? Why do they concentrate on potential influences of some gases in the atmosphere while proposing to heat the earth to a much greater extent by adding heat through sources like nuclear fission or fusion which indubitably add to earth’s heat balance?

How to protect your garden patch or field against radioactive fall-out

Do you own a garden, a patch of land, a field where you plant, esp. for human food or animal feed? Then you should prepare against letting the radioactive fall-out from Japan into your soil, where it will remain and contaminate your plants and e.g. livestock for probably decades.

Here’s the advice I already gave to people back in 1986 after the Chernobyl incidentRead more…

Politicians of all countries, recollect yourselves!

Dear politicians, there’s no alternative to forever turning our backs on nuclear energy and fast. Sure, the nuclear industry will protest vigorously and will see profits dwindle but they will survive without much problem – as opposed to many Japanese. It is but a question of time until another country will be hit as well – we should have understood that much by now. The so-called residual risk is not just unlikely nor is it negligible. And if you don’t rise to this sad occasion and get behind your people (a majority of whom never fancied nuclear power), then you will not only risk the health and livelihood of countless human beings but also your own and, above all, your power.

To our good and loyal subjects: After pondering deeply the general trends of the world and the actual conditions obtaining in Our Empire today …

2011-03-28 1 comment

… We have understood that to effect a settlement of the present situation We need to resort to an extraordinary measure.

We should have ordered Our Government long ago to communicate to the people of Japan and to the world that Our Empire should not embark on a scheme of using nuclear energy for base motives such as producing energy and putting our future and our people and other peaceful nations at risk. Read more…

How I brought down the Nuclear Industry in my Country – and how you can do it in yours …

The nineteen-seventies were the hey-day of nuclear power. Almost every country, big or small, super-power or developing country, thought they should build as many atomic reactors as possible. And then, all of a sudden, or so it seems, most of these ambitious projects came to a screeching halt. Was it the Three Mile Island accident that caused it? Were people more opposed to nuclear energy than before? Not really.

Dangers, Properties, possible Uses and Methods of Purification of radioactively contaminated (drinking) Water (e.g. in Japan)

Most methods and tools being recommended here on the Internet such as purification by filtration will not lead to your desired result of decontaminating “radioactive water”.

Here is what you need to know and what you can do [updated March 31st 2011, see end] – e.g. even if you can’t buy bottled water anymore.

a) Radioactive contamination of drinking water in Japan at this point in time can come about in only two ways: Read more…

Bloom of Doom VIII: US Figures Stronger than Feared

If you think the title is a contradiction, well, not more so than the idea that debt or subsidies could increase wealth. Where truth can’t win by argument it needs to do so by stealth (that almost rhymes). The President of the United States has published a report on the state of the economy which proves how uneconomical the state has become. From that report you can glean two things, the bad and the ugly: the US economy has greatly deteriorated further and it seems beyond the point of no return.

Breaking News: Gold Price Manipulation

2010-04-13 6 comments

While we had planned an in-depth post on how the gold price was manipulated over the past several decades in a few days’ time, there has just been a whistle-blower who went public two days ago:

“The banks, which do the Federal Reserve’s bidding in the metals markets, have long been the government’s lead actors in keeping down the prices of gold and silver, according to a former Goldman Sachs trader working at the London Bullion Market Association.” (Emphasis CrisisMaven)

Read the full story in the New York Post – MICHAEL GRAY: “Metal$ are in the pits – Trader blows whistle on gold & silver price manipulation“, Last Updated: 4:33 AM, April 11, 2010.

If you want to know the complete proof, go to GATA – Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee, esp. their “Documentation“.

(Statistical resources in our References section!)

You will then understand why the gold price currently is not reflecting the true debasement of the dollar and its kindred fiat currency brothers and sisters … and why therefore the surge, once it comes, will be completely out of proportion with anything you’ve ever seen (and anything most analysts dare currently to predict in order to not be ridiculed – but make no mistake, just think why a zero divisor for integers in mathematics leads to an undefined result in computing and what that result would actually be called in common language).
