CABINET'S DECISION ON NCL'S PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT ON CRAWL CAYE

Belizeans and true friends of Belize, It appears as though the Cabinet has made a pronouncement concerning the proposed Norwegian Cruise Lines development on Crawl Caye. As with all things, especially in dealing with matters deriving from this administration, a word to the wise is that despite what you glean from the press release…”the devil is in the details”. On the surface it looks as though the Cabinet made a wise, sound and appropriate decision, based on the statutes involving environmental protection. Yet, it causes the “enquiring mind” to query why, on one hand they opt to disregard issues pertaining […]

Gulf of Mexico clean-up makes spill 52 times more toxic

Mixing Oil With Dispersant Increased Toxicity to Ecosystems Article from Georgia Tech   Nov. 30, 2012 — If the 4.9 million barrels of oil that spilled into the Gulf of Mexico during the 2010 Deep Water Horizon spill was a ecological disaster, the two million gallons of dispersant used to clean it up apparently made it even worse — 52-times more toxic. That’s according to new research from the Georgia Institute of Technology and Universidad Autonoma de Aguascalientes (UAA), Mexico. The study found that mixing the dispersant with oil increased toxicity of the mixture up to 52-fold over the oil […]


Mayas ready to wage WAR over oil drilling in Southern Belize 3

Originally posted on Amandala The vastly divided opinions of the Maya of Toledo on the very contentious issue of petroleum exploration have rival rural factions at loggerheads, with leading environmental and cultural activists from the south waging a new battle against both the Government of Belize and US Capital Energy, which they contend are not acting in their interest—but solely on the basis of the wealth private individuals can amass from the industry. The Sarstoon Temash Institute for Indigenous Management (SATIIM), the Maya Leaders Alliance (MLA), the Toledo Alcaldes Association (TAA), and the four communities represented by SATIIM: Graham Creek, […]


U.S Capital says it’s G.O.B. who made the rules to EIA Consultation engagement

Originally posted on News5 The environmental community has come out in full support of the Maya Leaders Alliance and the Toledo Alcaldes Association because of what they believe is a botched consultation in Sundaywood village. The meeting last week Thursday should have been to educate the public and respond to their concerns regarding U.S. Capital Energy’s desire to drill in the national park and communal land. The company’s P.R. consultant told News Five that they had no control over the function of the meeting. Niall Gillett told News Five via phone that the government itself set the requirements.   Via […]

The Missing Secrets Of Nikola Tesla

Nikola Tesla (10 July 1856 7 January 1943) was an inventor and a mechanical and electrical engineer. He is frequently cited as one of the most important contributors to the birth of commercial electricity and is best known for his many revolutionary developments in the field of electromagnetism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Tesla’s patents and theoretical work formed the basis of modern alternating current (AC) electric power systems, including the polyphase system of electrical distribution and the AC motor, with which he helped usher in the Second Industrial Revolution.

Offshore Oil Drilling In Belize 2

Belize’s Government Under Pressure At Home For Offshore Drilling Concessions By Bilal Morris   The debate around offshore drilling in Belize hit center stage in June of 2010 with the Mayor of San Pedro, Elsa Paz, calling on her own government to have ‘consideration’ about making decisions on offshore drilling. Paz joined forces with advocates like the Coalition To Save Our National Heritage on the island to send a message to the Barrow administration to stop making decisions without consultation that can hurt the environment of Belize in the long run. “I believe that government should have some consideration before […]


HAARP – We can change WEATHER 1

We can change WEATHER – cause Droughts, Floods, Earthquakes & destroy your land – HAARP in action HAARP = High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program WEATHER WEAPONS in action – Nikola TESLA (1856-1943) [the genius who saw so much in his LUCID or precognitive (as in PRECOGNITION) dreams]. US has them [Gakona, Alaska] Russia has them [SURA] but NOT CHINA [China uses primitive cloud seeding with silver iodide crystals]. The clasic “signature” informs us if HAARP has been initiated. Horizontal “rainbows” + look up USGS mapping for evidence of corroboration. Nikola Tesla was a Serbian-American inventor, mechanical engineer, and electrical […]


GreenRoots: The Water Apocalypse 1

Water apocalypse? Yep, coming to a reservoir or an aquifer near you, in the not too distant future. Water is the essence of life, sustaining every being on this planet. Without water, there would simply be no plants, no animals, and us, the main culprits. But the global water supply isn’t just at risk, it’s already in crisis as I post these links below the fold. This scarce resource is facing heavy and unsustainable demand from users of all kinds, and farmers increasingly have to compete for water with urban residents and industries. Scientists and resource specialists say freshwater scarcity, […]
