There is a direct corelation with military technocrats and climate change. Sagan argued the now accepted hypothesis that the high surface temperatures of Venus can be attributed to and calculated using the greenhouse effect. In 1958, the two worked on the classified military Project A119, the secret Air Force plan to detonate a nuclear warhead on the Moon.[18] Sagan had a “Top Secret” clearance at the U.S. Air Force and a “Secret” clearance with NASA.[19] While working on his doctoral dissertation, Sagan revealed US Government classified titles of two Project A119 papers when he applied for a University of California at Berkeley scholarship in 1959. The leak was not publicly revealed until 1999, when it was published in the journal “Nature”. A followup letter to the journal by project leader Leonard Reiffel confirmed Sagan’s security leak.

False Alarms in Limon– Military Developed Hurricane Naming and steering Project Stormfury, Cirrus and Baton

Here is some history of hurricanes.

Later, latitude-longitude positions were used in the naming process. However, this cumbersome identification method was confusing during radio communication and more subject to error, according to NOAA. The United States nixed it in 1951 in favor of a naming system based on the phonetic alphabet (including names such as Able, Baker and Charlie) developed by the military.

Hurricane Otto recently went through Costa Rica. The shopping season was canceled on Black Friday even though the weather was nice in Limon. News reports said the hurricane hit Limon but it did not.

—————————————

Project Stormfury was an attempt to weaken tropical cyclones by flying aircraft into them and seeding with silver iodide. The project was run by the United States Government from 1962 to 1983.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Stormfury

Project Cirrus was the first attempt to modify a hurricane. It was a collaboration of the General Electric Corporation, the US Army Signal Corps, the Office of Naval Research, and the US Air Force.[1] After several preparations, and initial skepticism by government scientists,[6] the first attempt to modify a hurricane began on October 13, 1947 on a hurricane that was heading west to east and out to sea.[5]

An airplane flew along the rainbands of the hurricane, and dropped nearly 180 pounds (82 kilograms) of crushed dry ice into the clouds.[1] The crew reported “Pronounced modification of the cloud deck seeded”.[5] It is not known if that was due to the seeding. Next, the hurricane changed direction and made landfall near Savannah, Georgia. The public blamed the seeding, and Irving Langmuir claimed that the reversal had been caused by human intervention.[6] Cirrus was canceled,[5] and lawsuits were threatened. Only the fact that a system in 1906 had taken a similar path, as well as evidence showing that the storm had already begun to turn when seeding began, ended the litigation.[5] This disaster set back the cause of seeding hurricanes for eleven years.

The objective of Project BATON was the analysis of the life history of thunderstorms. A Department of Defense research activity supported by the Advanced Research Project Agency, Project BATON sought to expand understanding of storm physics as an aid to weather forecasting, fire prevention, and, possibly, for artificially controlling the weather. Dr. Helmut Weickmann, as an employee of the U.S, Army Signal Research and Development Laboratory, and Dr. Paul McReady of Meteorology Research, Inc., were joint leaders of the Project BATON team.[9]

During the 1962 July–August storm season in Flagstaff, Arizona, the scientists, selected “guinea pig” storms, and seeded them with chemicals. Effects were thoroughly analyzed from the ground and from the air with time-lapse motion picture cameras, stereo still cameras, storm radar, lightning detectors, and airborne heat sensors. Among the agents inserted in selected clouds were “condensation nuclei” which temporarily increased the number of water droplets in the cloud, and pulverized dry ice, which turns a portion of the cloud to fine snow crystals that remain aloft. The utilization of these agents facilitated study of a storm’s characteristics.[9]

Simple Mechanical Hybrid

This hybrid would improve cold starts.

Here is a simple mechanical hybrid.

Lots of room for my hybrid system that’ll make battery-electric hybrid-vehicle owners jealous. My plan is to have the diesel engine double as a steam generator. This way, my engine won’t be wasting more power than it uses. I still need to convince Cyclone Power Technologies to give me a waste heat steam engine. Then I’ll mount it in the bed, run it constantly, and have it power all my accessories and a hydraulic pump. I’ll install a Dana 60 front axle with a hydraulic pump connected to the differential. This will allow me to shut off my diesel engine (in the city) and only use it when needed (on the highway). When I’m in town I’ll just be trickle-charging my hydraulic accumulator with the steam engine and driving only with the front wheels.

Nevada Small Farm Conference

February 3 – 4, 2017   //   Nugget Casino Resort – Sparks, NV

The Nevada Small Farm Conference celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2016. The conference planted its roots in 2003 at John Ascuaga’s Nugget in Sparks.  It moved to the Sands Hotel in Reno from 2004-2005.

The conference went dormant for several years due to lack of leadership and funding. In 2010, the conference found new interest and energy and moved to rural Nevada under the leadership of the Western Nevada College Specialty Crop Institute.  The 2010-2012 conferences were held in Fallon at Western Nevada College and the Fallon Convention Center.

Attendance tripled within three years, and the conference outgrew its site in Fallon. In 2013, it returned to its roots at John Ascuaga’s Nugget in Sparks, which has since changed its name to The Nugget Casino Resort.

The Conference Planning Committee remains committed to growing and sustaining this valuable resource for Nevada’s farmers and ranchers. The 2017 conference returns to the Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks.

Fatal Misconception The Struggle to Control World Population Matthew Connelly

Population Control is an interesting topic. I think pollution is the problem not population.

http://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=9780674034600

Fatal Misconception is the disturbing story of our quest to remake humanity by policing national borders and breeding better people. As the population of the world doubled once, and then again, well-meaning people concluded that only population control could preserve the “quality of life.” This movement eventually spanned the globe and carried out a series of astonishing experiments, from banning Asian immigration to paying poor people to be sterilized.

Supported by affluent countries, foundations, and non-governmental organizations, the population control movement experimented with ways to limit population growth. But it had to contend with the Catholic Church’s ban on contraception and nationalist leaders who warned of “race suicide.” The ensuing struggle caused untold suffering for those caught in the middle—particularly women and children. It culminated in the horrors of sterilization camps in India and the one-child policy in China.

Matthew Connelly offers the first global history of a movement that changed how people regard their children and ultimately the face of humankind. It was the most ambitious social engineering project of the twentieth century, one that continues to alarm the global community. Though promoted as a way to lift people out of poverty—perhaps even to save the earth—family planning became a means to plan other people‘s families.

With its transnational scope and exhaustive research into such archives as Planned Parenthood and the newly opened Vatican Secret Archives, Connelly’s withering critique uncovers the cost inflicted by a humanitarian movement gone terribly awry and urges renewed commitment to the reproductive rights of all people.

Casco Viejo, Panama

Casco Viejo (Spanish for Old Quarter), also known as Casco Antiguo or San Felipe, is the historic district of Panama City. Completed and settled in 1673, it was built following the near-total destruction of the original Panamá city, Panamá Viejo in 1671, when the latter was attacked by pirates. It was designated a World Heritage Site in 1997.[1]

Peperomia pellucida (L.) Kunth

http://www.prota4u.org/protav8.asp?p=Peperomia+pellucida

Because Peperomia pellucida is very widely used for medicinal purposes and because it contains a range of complex bioactive compounds, research into its pharmacological properties deserves more attention. Its use as an easily collected or cultivated spicy vegetable justifies research into possibilities for its domestication. Its great genetic diversity and wide ecological adaptability may make selection of cultivars and development of appropriate crop husbandry measures relatively easy.
