Petition: Stop U.S. Lottery To Kill Off 400 Bison In The Grand Canyon

www.change.org

Steffi P started this petition to President Joseph R. Biden and 1 other

Stop U.S lottery to kill off 400 Bison in the Grand Canyon. 

Bison constantly face extinction and are endangered. The U.S. National Park are going to hire 12 skilled hunters to control the Bison population of a total of 600 Bison over populated in the Grand Canyon. Only 200 Bison will remain after this contract. 

 A better solution to handle an endangered species is to RELOCATE the Bison to another location where they can roam and multiply freely. Perhaps to other known locations where they once roamed where there’s no concern of Bison population. 

This petition is a matter in holding the U.S. Federal government and U.S. National Park accountable in stopping similar future lotteries involving killing of wildlife and to find better solutions in preserving wildlife and parks. 

This lottery affects people in the community and across the world, the land, and our future. 

There’s no space for the Bison so there’s no space to lose this petition. Please sign this petition today so we can preserve the National park and the Bison. 

Winning this petition is a must! Let’s all work together to hold the U.S. government accountable to see that the Bison roam new land ‘LIKE’ perhaps Alberta Canada?!

The Negative Social Cost Of Carbon And Rising CO2 Levels Greening Earth


The peer-reviewed evidence is compelling that CO2 emissions are net-beneficial, rather than harmful, and the social cost of carbon is negative. Here are some papers:

US FDA: Investigating Viruses in Cells Used to Make Vaccines; and Evaluating the Potential Threat Posed by Transmission of Viruses to Humans

Shouldn’t the vaccine makers be doing this research/paying for it, and then let the FDA evaluate it, rather than the FDA doing the research? This researcher was paid $158,123 plus a $1,000 bonus in 2018 by the taxpayer/US debt.

This hits the nail right on its head… About Kneeling..

maddmedic.wordpress.com

From John McNulty..

“I watched the Democratic leaders of Congress kneel
in the halls of Congress for about 9 minutes,
for the death of a black man named George Floyd.

I have never seen them kneel for a fallen *Police Officer.

I have never seen them kneel for a fallen *Soldier.

I NEVER SAW THEM KNEEL FOR THE *SOLDIERS THAT
HILLARY & OBAMA LEFT TO DIE IN Benghazi!!

I have never seen them kneel for the thousands of
(black and white) *babies aborted EVERY DAY.

I have never seen them kneel for
a murdered *white man or woman.

I have not seen them kneel for the
thousands of *black-on-black murder victims.

I have not seen them kneel for the thousands
of *elderly people that died in nursing homes
due to the Corona Virus.(Especially N.Y.)

I have to ask: *WHY are Democrats putting
the life of George Floyd as more valuable
than the lives of everyone else?

In fact, Democrats have put so much
value on the life of George Floyd,
they have allowed rioting, looting,
arson, murder, and mayhem in
communities Nationwide..

ASK YOURSELF – WHY NOW?”

The family (brothers and sister) of
George Floyd opened a Go Fund
Me account to “help the family”?

It has already raised $14,455,100.00
and still counting from donations as of
June 22, 2020 Yes, almost $14 1/2 MILLION.

This is for a guy who was arrested NINE times;
was a convicted drug dealer (and at a drug
deal the day he died);held a gun to the
stomach of a pregnant lady while his five
buddies robbed her home; did prison time
three different times totaling about eight years,
and obviously didn’t learn from our penal system.

And America is memorializing him
by painting murals of the guy on the
sides of buildings like he’s a hero?

Unbelievable!!

You got to be kidding me.

Crime does pay! ….and to pour salt in
the wound, Rep. Pelosi(democrat )presented
his brother a folded American flag flown over
the Capitol in his honor in a beautiful
tri-cornered presentation case.

How Much CO2 Gets Emitted to Build a Wind Turbine?

turbine base

stopthesethings 6 – 7 minutes

The ONLY justification for wind power – the massive subsidies upon which it entirely depends (see our post here); spiralling power prices (see our post here); and the suffering caused to neighbours by incessant low-frequency noise and infrasound (see our post here) – is the claim that it reduces CO2 emissions in the electricity sector.

STT has pointed out – just once or twice – that that claim is nothing more than a central, endlessly repeated lie.

Because wind power fails to deliver at all hundreds of times each year, 100% of its capacity has to be backed up 100% of the time by fossil fuel generation sources – which run constantly in the background to balance the grid and prevent blackouts when wind power output collapses – as it does on a routine, but unpredictable, basis (see our posts here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here). And for more recent woeful ‘efforts’:

The Wind Power Fraud (in pictures): Part 1 – the South Australian Wind Farm Fiasco

The Wind Power Fraud (in pictures): Part 2 – The Whole Eastern Grid Debacle

The mountains of dismal hard data tends to cut against the wilder claims emanating from the wind-worship-cult compounds that wind power ‘displaces’ – and will eventually ‘replace’ – conventional generation sources, but the ‘threat’ to BIG COAL, BIG GAS & BIG OIL is more imagined than real:

Why Coal Miners, Oil and Gas Producers Simply Love Wind Power

Even before the blades start spinning – the average wind farm clocks up thousands of tonnes of CO2 emissions: “embedded” in thousands of tonnes of steel and concrete. So, every wind farm starts with its CO2 abatement ledger in the negative.

Here’s Andy’s Rant with a breakdown of just how much CO2 goes to build one of these things.

So what’s the carbon foot print of a wind turbine with 45 tons of rebar & 481m3 of concrete?
Andy’s Rant
4 August 2014

Its carbon footprint is massive – try 241.85 tons of CO2.

Here’s the breakdown of the CO2 numbers.

To create a 1,000 Kg of pig iron, you start with 1,800 Kg of iron ore, 900 Kg of coking coal 450 Kg of limestone. The blast furnace consumes 4,500 Kg of air. The temperature at the core of the blast furnace reaches nearly 1,600 degrees C (about 3,000 degrees F).

The pig iron is then transferred to the basic oxygen furnace to make steel.

1,350 Kg of CO2 is emitted per 1,000 Kg pig iron produced.

A further 1,460 Kg CO2 is emitted per 1,000 Kg of Steel produced so all up 2,810 Kg CO2 is emitted.

45 tons of rebar (steel) are required so that equals 126.45 tons of CO2 are emitted.

To create a 1,000 Kg of Portland cement, calcium carbonate (60%), silicon (20%), aluminium (10%), iron (10%) and very small amounts of other ingredients are heated in a large kiln to over 1,500 degrees C to convert the raw materials into clinker. The clinker is then interground with other ingredients to produce the final cement product. When cement is mixed with water, sand and gravel forms the rock-like mass know as concrete.

An average of 927 Kg of CO2 is emitted per 1,000 Kg of Portland cement. On average, concrete has 10% cement, with the balance being gravel (41%), sand (25%), water (18%) and air (6%). One cubic metre of concrete weighs approx. 2,400 Kg so approx. 240 Kg of CO2 is emitted for every cubic metre.

481m3 of concrete are required so that equals 115.4 tons of CO2 are emitted.

Now I have not included the emissions of the mining of the raw materials or the transportation of the fabricated materials to the turbine site so the emission calculation above would be on the low end at best.

Extra stats about wind turbines you may not know about:

The average towering wind turbine being installed around beautiful Australia right now is over 80 metres in height (nearly the same height as the pylons on the Sydney Harbour Bridge). The rotor assembly for one turbine – that’s the blades and hub – weighs over 22,000 Kg and the nacelle, which contains the generator components, weighs over 52,000 Kg.

All this stands on a concrete base constructed from 45,000 Kg of reinforcing rebar which also contains over 481 cubic metres of concrete (that’s over 481,000 litres of concrete – about 20% of the volume of an Olympic swimming pool).

Each turbine blade is made of glass fibre reinforced plastics, (GRP), i.e. glass fibre reinforced polyester or epoxy and on average each turbine blade weighs around 7,000 Kg each.

Each turbine has three blades so there’s 21,000 Kgs of GRP and each blade can be as long as 50 metres.

A typical wind farm of 20 turbines can extend over 101 hectares of land (1.01 Km2).

Each and every wind turbine has a magnet made of a metal called neodymium. There are 2,500 Kg of it in each of the behemoths that have just gone up around Australia.

The mining and refining of neodymium is so dirty and toxic – involving repeated boiling in acid, with radioactive thorium as a waste product – that only one country does it – China. (See our posts here and here).

All this for an intermittent highly unreliable energy source.

And I haven’t even considered the manufacture of the thousands of pylons and tens of thousands of kilometres of transmission wire needed to get the power to the grid. And what about the land space needed to house thousands of these bird chomping death machines?

You see, renewables like wind turbines will incur far more carbon dioxide emissions in their manufacture and installation than what their operational life will ever save.

Maybe it’s just me, but doesn’t the “cure” of using wind turbines sound worse than the problem? A bit like amputating your leg to “cure” your in-growing toe nail?
