Group Warns on Consumption of Resources

Here are some headlines:

Group Warns on Consumption of Resources
Environmental Group Says Consumption of Resources Outstripping Planet's Ability to Cope
(Story)

Overconsumption threatens ecological balance, WWF warns (Story)

UK carbon output 'under-reported' (Story)

Human Demand Outstripping Earth's Supply (Story)

Sometimes the Clear Politics of a view are so easy to see it is not even fun. When the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) rings the bells of doom, are you supposed to be worried? Has the World Wildlife Fund ever not rung the bells of doom? Has the WWF ever said, “Things are not so bad?”

Well, things are not so bad, and if they were really concerned about resources, they would stop wasting paper on poor science reports, stop flying around the world for meetings, stop eating too much, stop breathing, and free up some resources. The truth is, like some mentioned here earlier, what they are really concerned about is that there will not be enough for them.

If you are a naysayer who thinks they may really care, ask yourself a question: “Will the solution come from advancement in technology, or will it come from conservation?”

Some answers are as easy to grasp as the Clear Politics of the frightened.

Item#1 The Heinz-Kerry/Kofi Annan connection

Based upon previous and various biographical listings for Theresa Heinz Kerry, she proudly posts that she was a classmate of Kofi Annan at the Geneva Language school. They are apparently really good friends. This brings up a lot of questions:
1. With her friendship and her obvious financial control of John Kerry...what would or could he do about the "Oil for Food" scandal that Kofi and son are up to their backsides in?
2. Since we have only two pages of Ms. Heinz-Kerry's financials, exactly where did some of the money come from...maybe "Oil for Food" either directly or via France or another "ally."
3. Will the U.N. become our "new" government, complete with President of the U.N. Bill Clinton.
4. Where will all this leave our security?

Item #2 The REAL Flu Shot Story

The Flu Shot was originally manufactured in the U.S. It is designed to prevent the top 3 to 4 strains of flu from taking hold. When the liability became too great, Chiron based in the U.K. started manufacturing it because liability wasn't as great upon them. They did it as a favor to us, even though there was a low profit margin.

Now to the liability issue. In the late 80's a North Carolina man got the flu after receiving the flu shot. He sued the U.S. company that manufactured it and won $5 million for his pain and suffering. Now for the good part, he and many others in the U.S. have sued. These suits were based upon a precedent set by this suit. His attorney was an up and coming ambulance chaser by the name of John Edwards. Get the picture.
