America turns red, white and green

Interview that caught my attention that I wanted to point out in a recent New Scientist article done by Graham Lawton with President Barack Obama's science adviser John Holdren. Part of that recommended piece:
On a global level, what needs to happen as we approach the United Nations climate summit in Copenhagen in December?

The industrialised nations need to get their acts together before they can expect the developing countries to come on board. We have historically produced a large part of the problem, although the numbers are shifting. Two things are obvious: the industrialised nations have an obligation to lead, and the developing countries have to join pretty soon, or we're going to be cooked.

I believe that if the US can go to Copenhagen with a specific policy in place, the chances are very good that we can get an agreement in which major developing countries make commitments that will move them onto a declining emissions trajectory. They are still waiting for concrete evidence that the US is going to move, but I think if the US does move, we will see a degree of progress at Copenhagen that will surprise people.

"The people in the industrialized nations need to lead."

If the last 2 decades have shown anything it's that governments won't do a damn thing until the seas boil, the land burns, and our air resembles the stinking soup on Venus.

Having done my own in depth investigation, reading the massive scientific data which includes data going back to the dawn of earth; this whole "crisis" which depends on the pivotal issue that mankind and our pathetic species is able to induce global warming or climate change, that religion which claims that we must slit our own throats in order to save the planet is a bunch of horse hockey.

Go read Heaven and Earth and you will understand how the natural cycles of earth are controlled by other factors completely out of our control.

What happens will happen whether we are industrialized and use fossil fuels or whether we sit and freeze in some cave hoping for a better day.

Lastly, is Anonymous still trying to sell adult sex toys or is that some other kind of spam? lol

簡善琳瑜珈補習班創辦人簡善琳老師,在三十幾年前瑜珈風氣尚未盛行的少女時代即對它產生濃厚興趣少時體質贏弱敏感也因瑜伽而獲得顯著改善,所以立志貢獻所學,藉由瑜珈來達成幫助國人身體健康的願望。高雄瑜珈中簡善琳瑜伽養生會館除了硬體設備在會館環境上建立最精緻、最優質的多功能複式場所外,為避免其他瑜珈教室之師資情況(即投入教學工作則無力再學習進修之窘境),對於師資的培訓與要求更是不遺餘力,所有師資不分資深資淺每個月都要接受新的瑜伽課程訓練,期盼與國際接軌,隨時給予學員最新的資訊與知識。針對初學者教授九大關節操、拜日式、基本功法、淨脈呼吸法等,溫和而緩慢的瑜珈,透過簡單的延展動作及呼吸按摩身體各部位的經脈,奠定初學者學習瑜伽的基礎。會館裡有初級瑜伽、整體瑜伽、哈達瑜伽、養生瑜伽、有氧瑜伽、塑身瑜伽、氣功瑜伽、瑜伽提斯、Ashtanga、孕婦瑜伽、進階瑜伽、體位法瑜伽…等數十項豐富瑜伽課程提供選擇。

Not interested in buying room furniture from China, termites in the room from China or taking Yoga in China or any other network marketing in China.

I do enjoy the free translation site so I can read all the spam left here which normally I would ignore.

I'm waiting for one of them to try to sign me up for Amway. lol

T.F. I found the Motel one to be interesting.

That's the one advantage of my wordpress blogs as opposed to this one, the spam catchers.
