Here is Volume 32 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.
BILL GATES SPENDS EXORBITANT AMOUNTS OF CASH EVERY YEAR TRYING TO PUSH GEO-ENGINEERING INITIATIVES
Gates is a huge advocate of global intervention programs that forcibly affect large people groups whether they like it or not, and one of his projects is spending untold millions of dollars from his own personal fortune to fund research into climate geo-engineering programs. This computer guy (of course, no background in climate science) thinks it’s the best thing to spray the atmosphere with tiny particulate matter (and literally nano-scopic mirrors) for the alleged purpose of reflecting sunlight back into space, and thus cooling the planet. The entire concept of geo-engineering to save the planet is utter hogwash, of course. However, geo-engineering gives unprecedented control over the world’s weather patterns to a select few, allowing them to manipulate the environment for their own gain. Indeed, this is very scary because the planet is already cooling without all this.
WHO ‘OWNS’ YOUR DNA SEQUENCE AND YOUR RIGHT TO CONSUME?
Courts and bureaucrats continue to assert that citizens have no fundamental right to produce and consume the foods of their choice. In an absurd ruling this year, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals allowed the patent on these human genes, even though the DNA sequence occurs in nature. The court decided that simply because researchers had been able to extract it, the firm owns it. Of course, under this thinking, all of nature can be patented if human technology allows extraction.
A DARK UNION BETWEEN BIOLOGY & COMPUTER SCIENCE?
Just a bunch of big words and esoteric concepts in describing an “advanced” biological computer? Yea, you read right – the beginnings of a cybergenetic organism. I know, I’ve been watching too many ‘Terminator’ movies, but when you see the sponsors, think again what this is all about – “This work was supported by the National Science Foundation, the Israel-US Binational Science Foundation, and the Skaggs Institute for Chemical Biology, as well as graduate fellowships from the Irwin and Joan Jacobs Foundation, the Fine Foundation, the Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute, and the Israel Ministry of Science and Technology.” Dig deep, if you are interested, and maybe you’ll see some dark passageways like I did.
A NATURAL DISASTER THAT MIGHT…JUST MIGHT OCCUR
Just remember what happened back in 2008. Millions of Americans lost their jobs and millions of Americans lost their homes. Now experts all over the globe are warning that another great financial crisis that could be just as bad as 2008 (or even worse) is coming. In risk management, it’s always good to be prepared no matter how contrary you are.
HOW ABOUT THOSE 30,000 DRONES COVERING USA SKIES?
In case you didn’t know it – and you probably didn’t – Congress, with little fanfare, passed an FAA reauthorization bill last week. President Obama is expected to sign into law that will make it much easier for the government to put scores of unmanned spy drones into American skies.
AN UNSETTLING WEEK FOR GLOBAL WARMING’S “SETTLED SCIENCE”
Now it appears that cloud tops are lowering around the planet. The average global cloud height is linked to the average global temperature — generally, the higher the average cloud height, the higher the average surface temperature, and vice versa. And of course there’s the new icing on the ‘global warming cake’. Data from 2003 through 2010 from the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellite show virtually zero net melting from the massive Himalayan ice cap, the world’s “third pole”. Oh, wait a second: in addition, the GRACE satellite found that total ice loss outside of Greenland and Antarctica was previously estimated 30% too high. All in all, what with the finding of yet another cooling feedback, no net melting (within the range of measurement error) in the Himalayan ice cap, and confirmation of a low rate of sea level rise, it’s been a bad week for climate hotheads. My prediction is this flip-flop will occur with accelerating determination because when the truth has to come, it will be set free, especially with integrity holds a light in the dark.
FIVE “SCIENTIFIC” MYTHS ABOUT FAT
As Jon Barron, a world-leading nutraceutical researcher says, “Why would you listen to a medical doctor when it comes to nutrition?” They barely study it in medical school. They really know very little about it. All you have to do is look at the food served in a hospital to understand the limits of their knowledge. Doesn’t everyone in the hospital try and have friends and family smuggle in “real” food? What does that tell you? If you want to learn which foods can kill you and which foods your body will thrive on, you have to look to the people who walk their talk – the real health experts.
EVEN GOVERNMENT PROPAGANDISTS ARE RETHINKING GLOBAL WARMISM
A growing number of people in the scientific community are coming forward to express doubts about the prevailing scientific opinions concerning global warming. Read the entire report here to find out it’s in essence all about Dr. Schmidt versus Dr. Happer – and of course, no allusion to anything else here (if you change a few letters in each name).

GRAPES MORE POWERFUL THAN CARROTS FOR THE EYES
Preserving eye health is a key concern as we age and this study shows that grapes may play a critical role in achieving this.
