The World for People who Think

Comet 2

How many falling fireballs and sun-grazing comets will it take to wake people up?

A video collection of just some of the fireballs that have been seen around the world in the past couple of years, along with some stats that indicate they are happening more and more often.

Comment: Should we be worried? NASA certainly is. Their advice?

Ice Age cometh: Record return of Arctic ice cap as it grows by 60% in a year; top scientists warn of global cooling

A chilly Arctic summer has left nearly a million more square miles of ocean covered with ice than at the same time last year - an increase of 60 per cent. The rebound from 2012's record low comes six years after the BBC reported that global warming would leave the Arctic ice-free in summer by 2013.

Instead, days before the annual autumn re-freeze is due to begin, an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia's northern shores. The Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific has remained blocked by pack-ice all year. More than 20 yachts that had planned to sail it have been left ice-bound and a cruise ship attempting the route was forced to turn back.

Some eminent scientists now believe the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century - a process that would expose computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming as dangerously misleading.

The disclosure comes 11 months after The Mail on Sunday triggered intense political and scientific debate by revealing that global warming has 'paused' since the beginning of 1997 - an event that the computer models used by climate experts failed to predict.

Comment: This comes as no surprise to SOTT's regular readers since we've been disputing so-called global warming for years. Here's just a few recent articles to add to the mix:

Vladimir Putin's New York Times op-ed: 'A plea for caution from Russia'

What Putin Has to Say to Americans About Syria

Recent events surrounding Syria have prompted me to speak directly to the American people and their political leaders. It is important to do so at a time of insufficient communication between our societies.

Relations between us have passed through different stages. We stood against each other during the cold war. But we were also allies once, and defeated the Nazis together. The universal international organization - the United Nations - was then established to prevent such devastation from ever happening again.

The United Nations' founders understood that decisions affecting war and peace should happen only by consensus, and with America's consent the veto by Security Council permanent members was enshrined in the United Nations Charter. The profound wisdom of this has underpinned the stability of international relations for decades.


Another Nineteen suspects - Mind bending 9/11 'coincidences'

Interview with author Kevin Ryan on Guns and Butter radio show

The best book on the people around (and perhaps behind) 9/11: Another 19 by Kevin Ryan.

The "other 19" is group of insiders who have been running together for decades, some of them going as far back as the Nixon administration.

They're specialists in things like "continuity of government", coups, advanced demolition techniques, arms smuggling, covert military operations, news media manipulation, money laundering, covert dealings with Middle Eastern terrorists, security systems for the World Trade Center, and air defense systems.

They're proven killers, liars, and thieves who have demonstrated they'll do just about anything to get what they want.

As a group, these 19 actually ran US air defense system AND security for the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. They also managed the clean up and the (laughable) investigation, set post-attack military plans, and explained it all - including the "need" to invade Iraq to the press.

They were involved in things like the Phoenix Program, drug running in Vietnam, Iran Contra, the First Gulf War...

All in all a very experienced group - with close ties to the Bush family and its cronies - that was more than capable of pulling 9/11 off. See more here.

Exposing the names and connections behind the 9/11 conspiracy

Was 9/11 really an inside job? After reviewing this documentary, and checking the evidence, I think the answer will be clear to you.

Special thanks to Michael C. Ruppert, Mark H. Gaffney, and Kevin Ryan for solving the crimes of 9/11 with their amazing research. This video is a compilation of evidence they have uncovered.

Comment: Obviously this doesn't tell us everything about 9/11, but it's nevertheless a very good summary of many connections that clearly show the official story to be little more than a Disney fantasy production.

Reality Check: More Americans "Rethinking" 9/11?

© rethink911.org
Did you know that a 3rd building fell on 9-11? That bill board is today over Times Square. It was placed there through donations to a campaign called Rethink 9/11.

In fact, that group has placed posters and signs across the world, from Australia, to Canada, from San Francisco to right here in New York City.

So what is Rethink 9/11? Wouldn't only a fringe group of people would still question 9/11? Perhaps not, because today we will tell you about new polling that shows a majority of those polled either question the official 9/11 story or don't believe it at all. Is that possible?

The first step toward truth, is to be informed.

Philip Hammond praises 'fabulous' arms trade fair in London

Selling weapons abroad is a top priority for the government, Philip Hammond, the UK defence secretary, made clear on Tuesday, praising what he called a "fabulous show" displaying "fantastic kit".

It was the opening day of London Docklands' biennial arms bazaar, the biggest so far with 40 countries, including Russia and Israel, having their own national pavilions, and as many as 1,500 companies offering their wares.

Official guests at the arms show include the governments of Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya - countries that need to build up their armed forces after recent conflicts in which Britain has played its part - as well as such traditional arms trade allies as Saudi Arabia and the UAE.


Syria: Assad not responsible for Ghouta gas attack, says freed hostage Pierre Piccinin

Belgian writer and Syrian hostage Pierre Piccinin said Assad is not to blame for the Ghouta Chemical gas attack
A Belgian writer held hostage for five months in Syria has said that his own rebel captors denied that President Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the Ghouta massacre.

Pierre Piccinin said that he and fellow hostage Domenico Quirico, an Italian war reporter, heard their jailers talking about the chemical weapon attack and saying that Assad was not to blame.

Quirico confirmed to La Stampa newspaper that they had eavesdropped such a conversation through a closed door but added that he had no evidence to substantiate what he heard.

Piccinin said the captives became desperate when they heard that the US was planning to launch a punitive attack against the regime over the gas attack in the Damascus suburb.
