Simon’s Edge™ – Vol. 29

Here is Volume 29 of “Simon’s Edge,” previously called “Simon Says Weatherwise & Otherwise,” an out-of-box and alternative collection of news link substantiated intelligence on the subjects of climate, weather, technology, financial investments/commodities, socio-economic and health-related risks, issues, ideas, potential “Black Swans” and insights to help gain Bulldog Pundit readers an ‘edge’ in the onslaught of news from around the world.

RESEARCHERS FIND PARTICLE TO COOL THE PLANET
What could possibly go wrong?  What frightens me about this is that someone might get the bright idea to synthesize this stuff and try spraying it everywhere in hopes of cooling the planet.  And trigger the next Ice Age.  Wonderful.  Not particularly inviting when the globe is already cooling.  And watch:  Monsanto will be selling these invisible ‘MonCriegee’ biradicals as a GM licensed product.  All natural production of ‘MonCriegee’ biradicals will be prosecuted or destroyed in order to protect the planet-saving ‘MonCriegee biradicals’ from abusive use by nature or skeptics (sarcasm again); you know, anybody caught breathing or digesting the product will have to purchase a right-of-use license.

GOOGLE JUST MADE BING THE BEST SEARCH ENGINE
For years, Google Search has been the highest quality web product.  Sure, Bing had a rocky start.  But if you haven’t seen Bing recently it’s worth another look.  It has a super clean interface.  It’s fast.  And operators work the way you expect them to.  Best of all it’s relevant.  Also, there is evidence in the past that Google’s board of directors had lowered rankings on certain words/terms/sites to bury information/mislead the public.  Not sure if it’s true but I didn’t like the implications.  I want my search engine to be politics-free thank you very much.

WHAT IF HUMANS WERE TWICE AS INTELLIGENT? 
Suppose that in some future society, part of the population, say 10 percent, became hugely intelligent, while the rest stayed where we are now or even dropped behind a bit.  What would that do to society?  We need to be able to boost emotional or social intelligence to have a more harmonious society with a concentration on increasing goodness, wisdom and morals.  Pure intelligence is just like an absolute force or power, but with no direction it can be, at times, more easily directed towards lack of good (evil) because it can certainly encompass more egotistical attitude.

MSM BLIND TO CLOAK OF REPEAT BUSINESS IN TOXIC CANCER DRUGS. 
It starts out, “The drug, called Voraxaze, helps eliminate methotrexate in patients whose kidney function has been compromised by treatment with high doses of the chemotherapy agent [admitting that chemo is terribly toxic for the body].  Methotrexate is normally eliminated from the body by the kidneys, but prolonged high doses of the drug used to treat cancer can result in kidney failure.”  Oh dear, please God, allow more people to see that there are cures the natural way.

TAKE A PEEK UNDERNEATH DENVER INT’L AIRPORT. 
And if we think we saw all of the underground maze, we are mistaken.  There are tunnels leading out 20 miles away from the airport.  Why would you need a tunnel 20 miles long to transport bags??  There is a whole ‘city’ underneath there.  This is a massive conveyor system to move huge quantities of supplies.  You take a guess what else is going underneath there.

OVER 30 (MINUS A FEW) WAYS TO GET SMARTER IN 2012. 
Do you know anything about ‘Freedom’, an Internet-blocking software that lets you concentrate on the task at hand?  Do you cook with turmeric?  Get the TED App.  Sleep more.  Learn Chinese or Arabic.  Eat Fair Trade organic dark chocolate.  As you go through the list, you can see though where society fails – as in their recommending to play violent videogames.  It really makes one wonder!

HOW TO RAISE YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS. 
Eat more high-vibration foods, clean your clutter and observe your decisions as if you were your own life coach.  Wow, this is REALLY good advice.

HOW ON EARTH COULD MERCEDES-BENZ NOT HAVE KNOWN? 
Mercedes’ apology for using a photo of Ernesto “Che” Guevara to promote its luxury cars does little to quiet an outcry.  And so it shouldn’t.  How did this get ‘missed’, or was it ‘overlooked’ to try pushing new boundaries?  And why is this important anyway?  More and more young people think it’s a fashion statement to wear this Marxist revolutionary’s picture, when in fact it’s extremely offensive.  Ultimately, Mercedes-Benz likely knew what it was doing, just like Benetton used blacks and whites in provoking themes in the 80s.

NASA FUDGES CLIMATE DATA: WORSE THAN CLIMATE-GATE?
In going down a research ‘rabbit hole’, it is true that NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) has been progressively modifying data by “lowering temperature values for far-back dates and raising those in the more recent past”.  We finally saw the 2010 letter from Senators John Barrasso (R-WY.) and David Vitter (R-LA.) to NASA chief Charles Bolden demanding answers to questions surrounding uncovered irregularities in the space agency’s climate data.

FRACKING VERY LIKELY DOES NOT CAUSE EARTHQUAKES
Earthquakes have been going on for millions of years.  Most earthquakes originate from 10 to 80 miles beneath the surface of the land, with their energy rippling upwards and sideways.  For example, a few minutes of research reveals that Ohio experiences an average of about 5 minor quakes in this region every year, and the strongest one occurred there in 1937, well before fracking.  However, if you line-up the earthquake increases and decreases through each decade, you can see there is a good r-squared correlation between solar flares / coronal mass ejections and earthquakes; that is, the higher the number of solar ‘interruptions’ / activity, the higher the frequency of more intense earthquakes for most regions.  I have come to realize that despite what you hear about fracking, it is not scientifically just to bring scare tactics into the equation when the science does not match the evidence.
