Simon’s Edge™ – Vol. 14

Here is Volume 14 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.

 

ALLOPATHIC MEDICATION IS GETTING INCREASINGLY JEALOUS OF THE HUGE SUCCESSES IN ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE 
Today we continue to see mainstream medicine reject much in alternative healing, including healing energies and frequencies, kinesiology, traditional healing around the world and more.  In many instances, mainstream rejection of alternative healing violates the foremost principle of the scientific method itself:  observation.  Alternative healing has been observed to be successful dating back hundreds and even thousands of years.  Mainstream medicine continues to reject observed success as merely anecdotal and contends that only rigorous testing will provide any validation.  As history has taught us, much of those rejected items may well be validated once science finally catches up or owns up.

WHAT [ECONOMIC] RECOVERY?   
What policy and monetary-makers fail to grasp is that this time really is different.  Typically it’s the cyclical sectors of the economy such as business inventories, auto production, etc. that lead to the variability of the economy and produce expansions and contractions.  However, this time around the main driving force is a broken consumer credit cycle.  Rather than leveraging-up on debt like they have during every recovery since the Great Depression, the U.S. consumer has reached maximum credit saturation and instead is deleveraging and reducing overall debt levels.  The proof is in the pudding:  from the charts in this article, five of the last 6 post recovery cycles never even showed a contraction in revolving consumer credit as the former peak was exceeded the very next month, and yet we are at 34 months and counting since the former peak in this cycle!

BP HAS ITS OWN ‘ARMY’ IN CONTROLLING THE MEDIA, A SITUATION LIKE THE FOX GUARDING THE HEN HOUSE
How can BP say more oil is not there when they have many ships out there sampling it?  New photographic and video evidence will prompt a “scientific” inquiry into the source of the quickly growing oil slick located very near the former Deepwater Horizon site in the Gulf of Mexico.

ASTHMA INHALERS TO BE BANNED OVER ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS 
Here is yet another example of how ludicrous the global-warming scheme is going – epinephrine inhalers (that help short-term breathing situations in mild asthma sufferers) will be banned by Dec. 31 because they contain chlorofluorocarbons.  The action is part of an agreement by many nations to stop using substances that deplete the ozone layer.

CANCER CAN  BE CURED, NOT BY BEING DOUSED BY CHEMO
“CANCER is Curable NOW” pulls together wisdom from more than 30 international holistic professionals who have been working passionately in the field of cancer alternatives.  This stunning documentary reveals truths about the cancer industry.

YET ANOTHER CASE OF THE EPA ‘ASLEEP BEHIND THE WHEEL’
Laboratory tests commissioned by Environmental Working Group have detected hexavalent chromium, the carcinogenic “Erin Brockovich chemical,” in tap water from 31 of 35 American cities.  Despite mounting evidence of its toxic effects, the EPA has not set a legal limit for hexavalent chromium in tap water nationally and does not require water utilities to test for it.  The “easy” solution is avoid drinking public water, despite the so-to-speak “claims” of these officials: .

AL GORE’S BRAINWASHING FOCUSED ON GETTING THE WORD OUT THROUGH SCHOOL-TEACHERS
Slick marketing in his 24×7 climate reality show is becoming increasingly desperate as scientific proof gains on showing Gore’s multi-faceted lies. Having watched Gore’s recent 24 Hours of Reality internet media show this past week, I could see that very same level of desperation present in all of the day’s presentations.  I saw a level of incoherence not seen before in the Global Warming crusade.  I saw a faith-based movement clearly facing a rapidly unraveling ideology.  Ironically now, even traditional global warming activists have been wary of having anything to do with Gore’s telethon, where presenter upon presenter attempted in vain to cherry pick any extreme region weather event on the globe and connect it to man-made global warming.

A TWISTED ZONE OF ECO-SPIN 
The most bizarre turn of green ideology is that many top climate zealots have been claiming that “global cooling is caused by global warming”.  This bizarre idea has been successfully implanted into the minds of a faithful flock, but it is quite obviously the death pangs of a flock who have lost their way.  In this twisted zone of eco-spin, millions could perish from famine or a spike in food prices brought on by early frosts, and elderly residents might die trapped in their homes without sufficient heat.  Climate fantasists will tell you that this is all down to man-made global warming, in much the same way that Pat Robertson told us that Hurricane Katrina and the Haiti earthquake were brought on by God’s vengeance for those peoples’ sins.  Combine this with Gore’s pictures of dying kids, and THIS is the new ‘movement’.

DIMENSION ‘HOPPING’ … FINALLY IT’S COMING OUT (IN THE ‘NEW SCIENTIST’ MAGAZINE TOO) 
A CERN experiment claims to have caught neutrinos breaking the universe’s most fundamental speed limit of light.  If real (and of course Stephen Hawking has done a lot to prove that worm holes and bi-location is possible), the finding will force a rewrite of Einstein’s theory of special relativity, one of the cornerstones of modern physics.  See this:  .

TEEN’S SOLAR INVENTION PRETTY COOL (BUT SADLY CITES NEED TO REDUCE C02 OUTPUT) 
Unlike other devices that let solar panels move to follow the sun, the SunSaluter doesn’t use a motor – instead, it turns because the different metals it’s made of expand in the sun at different rates.  That means the invention is about 1/60th as expensive as traditional solar trackers – $10 versus $600 – and simple enough to be maintained by kids in developing communities.

As always, thanks for reading.  I appreciate your interest. Until next week … connect the dots, be aware and seek out the ‘edge’ you need.
