Wind farms' role in the fight against global warming

Wind turbine technology has only just started and is improving all the time. Once turbines increasingly move off-shore the potential resource is enormous. We conservatively estimate that by 2020 around 15% of our electricity could come from wind. The number of turbines needed to do that will depend on their size and efficiency.

Author Claims Admin Complicit in 9/11

David Ray Griffin presents his case at UW-Madison

David Ray Griffin asks the tough questions about Sept. 11, contending U.S. officials had some knowledge of what was coming and possibly orchestrated the attacks.

Griffin, whose book, “The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11,” came out a year ago, drew an enthusiastic standing ovation from the majority of the 400 or so people who packed his lecture Monday night at Bascom Hall.

A retired Christian theologian, Griffin, 65, taught for more than 30 years at the Claremont School of Theology in California.

His comments Monday night were directed at religious people, who he said need to respond to Sept. 11 – and the American empire that has ensued – based on the moral principles of their religious traditions.

Excerpt:
Though He was born into a life of wealth and privilege Bush’s introduction into the super secret super decadent society of the ruling rich and his first alleged homosexual experiences probably began in 1968 while he was a student at Yale University. In her book 'Secrets of the Tomb---Skull and Bones, the Ivy League, and the Hidden Paths of Power,’ Alexandra Robbins describes how Skull & Bones initiates were selected from American aristocracy to be pushed to the heights of power in a globalist empire. Initiates took part in satanic rituals in a windowless building at Yale University, known as ‘The Tomb’. As part of the initiation ritual, new members engaged in homosexual acts in a coffin while divulging secrets about their sex lives and other personal information. From that day forward the acts committed by the initiate and their confession were used as a means of control, and it formed a dark bond among the inner circle members of the Skull & Bones Order.

Housing prices, especially on the west coast and in the east's Bos-Wash (Boston-Washington, DC) corridor, began to rocket in the second half of 1995 as dot-com profits were plowed into real estate. The boom has been sustained by sensationally low mortgage rates, thanks principally to the willingness of China to buy vast amounts of US Treasury bonds despite their low or negative yields. Beijing has been willing to subsidize US mortgage borrowers as the price for keeping the door open to Chinese exports.
