Armenian Birth Pangs: The Velvet Revolution Continues- US Led NATO Looks To Expand...

 Will they have success? Considering they've had their man in Armenia for two years now? Success may be theirs to have.

I've been reading through lots of material on the Nagarno Kharabahk  situation. There is tons of disinfo. Lots of unsubstantiated claims. That's to be expected. What's very interesting and unexpected is the 5 eyes based "news" outlets spinning against Azerbaijan and Turkey, while propping up all manner of Armenian claims. American and UK sources are very pro Armenian despite the fact Armenia is supposed to be a staunch ally of Russia? A protectorate of Russia? Under the influence and sway of Russia? Though that isn't really the case and all.  And Nagarno Kharabahk isn't part of Russia's reduced influence in Armenia.

Pashinyan would know very well how to work/manipulate a compliant media. Being a "media" man supported by by western NGO's.  That's been covered here previously, check the 2018 reports:

Pashinian, who for years run Armenia’s best-selling daily, “Haykakan Zhamanak,”   
In 2013 -Pashinian also stated that his movement could advocate a “velvet revolution” in Armenia if serious fraud precludes regime change through elections.  

Of course, Pashiny(i)an did take power:

 The more we believe things change, the more we fail to realize they are exactly the same.

Let's step back even further to a report, published by yours truly April / 2016:

Nagorno-Karabakh is not a localised conflict

It's definitely not a localized conflict. No sireee....

It does not take a leap from reality to see how this conflict could spill over into a bigger war in the South Caucasus.
 Far from being just a localised conflict watched by many with curiosity on our television screens, the war in Nagorno-Karabakh is actually a tangled web of competing geopolitical interests from across the region.
The risk of the war spilling over is real. 
 This is not about Russia poking Turkey in the eye! The US talking head is spinning that nonsense and it's just that nonsense- Russia has no interest in fomenting war with Turkey-
Russia has sold a whole pile of arms to Azerbaijan, so the US presented simplistic narrative doesn't fit.
The South Caucasus is a tinderbox almost perpetually on the brink of igniting. Often it is Russia's hand that is shaping and influencing events in the South Caucasus.
But Russia isn't the only player as the very biased writer finally acknowledges
For the US, events in the South Caucasus can affect regional security, and by extension, the US and Europe's security.
For Europe, stability and security in the South Caucasus matters for energy reasons and for the bigger dream of creating a continent that is whole, free and at peace.
 A Europe whole and free- This is a US idea to dominate the entirety of Europe. 
  How far down the rabbit hole are your prepared to go to have a minimal understanding of what's at stake here? How about back to 2014? 
This long in the works plan is moving forward. It is progressing. Those who tell you the US doesn't engage in long term planning are either very stupid or intentionally misleading. I'll let you decide for yourself

That's NATO talk for a Europe under the thumb of NATO. We've talked this topic previously readers. And oddly Hillary Clinton mentioned that at the time of the Brussels bombing- It's a plan.

Despite its physical distance from the United States, events in the South Caucasus can affect regional security and, by extension, transatlantic security. 

Energy reasons and dominating Europe- Oops, I mean making Europe whole and free ;) 

Goodness gracious, why that was mentioned just the other day!

The dangerous actions of Armenia risks to further destabilize the region,
Pipelines
which has a strategic importance for Azerbaijan and Europe, as it provides energy and transport links to Georgia, Turkey and Europe for the Azerbaijani oil and gas as well as other export commodities. By jeopardizing major infrastructure projects, such as the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline, Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum gas pipeline, Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway, Armenia could put European energy and transport security at huge risk."

 Let's cut to the chase- CATO Institute

"Ankara’s declaration (declarations are meaningless without action) especially creates the danger of a showdown between Turkey and Russia, since Moscow regards Armenia as a client, if not an outright protectorate. ( I don't buy that idea- that's a very NATO idea) The mere possibility of an armed confrontation between a NATO member and Russia is cause for alarm, since Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty considers an attack on any alliance member as an attack on all. A military incident between Turkey and Russia would require the United States to sort‐​out which party was guilty of aggression, and if it appeared that Moscow had initiated the clash, Washington would have an obligation to come to Turkey’s defense."

Wow! Let's talk about what is being stated by CATO- The mere possibility of a confrontation, not an actual confrontation,  just a maybe would require the rest of NATO to step up and defend Turkey.  This is pretext.  Considering everything that has taken place in Syria? With the US aiming for Turkey right there alongside their PKK pals? The Mediterranean conflict which sees the US opposed to Turkey's attempts to exercise it's own right to trade and protecting it's commercial interests. Come on! The US is looking to expand NATO into Armenia in a very big way and Armenia is doing all it can to help with attain this goal!

 Spin from "Radio Free Europe"  Turkish-Russian Rivalry Influences Azerbaijan-Armenia Fighting

 I'm stating, because it's clear to me, NK has flared up at this time because the US is looking for an excuse to enter/occupy Armenia. They got their man in power. And that man, Pashinian is making all manner of unsubstantiated claims of Turkish involvement. This will give the US exactly what they want. With a side benefit of causing conflict between Turkey and Russia. There is no way Turkey wants more US troops stationed at it's border alongside their PKK proxy army. In a replay of the same situation we see in Syria. The presence of the PKK was reported, here, a couple of days ago

"The alarming reports that Armenia has been relocating Kurdistan Working Party (PKK) terrorists from Syria and Iraq to the occupied territories of Nagorno-Karabakh to prepare for future hostilities and train Armenian militias is news of the sort that should keep you awake at night, not only in Azerbaijan but also in Europe, writes James Wilson.

Arevordi @ Heralding the Rise of Russia has long written about US influence in Armenia- Wonder what he's thinking right about now?

Smart Cities Predicted to Create 2.46 Trillion in "Growth Opportunities" Thanks To Covid-19 (84) : The Great Reset

 The Human Zoo aka the "Smart City"

Frost & Sullivan analysts are calling on technology leaders to assess the emerging opportunities resulting from Covid-19 and innovate to build company-, society-, and consumer resilience.

The nine key trends highlighted in The Reshaping of Industries Caused by Covid-19 analysis are:

Connected living: the increased adoption of contactless surfaces post-pandemic will power the home automation and security markets. Systems encompassing voice activation technology will become increasingly popular among consumers

The internet of things, including human things

Connected work: reformed connected work scenarios will accentuate the need for “cloud everything”. New subscription-based models will witness a growing demand for unified-communications-as-a-service (UCaaS)

Digital health: digital health driven by telemedicine and robotic care will become the new standard of care delivery. Standardisation of service across the care continuum will require more service and technology providers

Geopolitical balance: countries should work together to keep trade flowing and ensure the supply of essential products, sending a signal of confidence to the global economy

Human augmentation: the behavioural analytics market is expected to reach $3bn in revenue in 2030, up from $230m in 2019. Post-Covid-19, behavioural data will be used to enhance healthcare systems, financial services, and cybersecurity

Lights-out operations: autonomous “lights-out” operations will propel the demand for remote asset management solutions, and service providers will focus on data management strategies and data-driven business models

Smart cities: smart cities will create business opportunities with a market value of $2.46 trillion by 2025. Smart cities will prioritise more digitalised services and a strong data analytics infrastructure, leading to increased spending on technology

Supply chain optimisation: the supply chain industry is creating radical innovations with augmented reality, virtual reality, advanced robotics, real-time inventory tracking, and exploring how 3D printing could completely disrupt the supply chain in the next 10 years

Technology advancements: pandemic preparedness will speed up the deployment of artificial intelligence (AI) solutions and accelerate AI innovation. Beyond specific disease management, post-pandemic economies also will rely on AI and machine learning (ML) tools to expedite digital transformation across key business initiatives.

“The shift in focus on cost optimisation and on avoiding further production losses post-Covid-19 has accelerated the adoption of automation and industrial robots across various industries,” added Chaitanya Habib, visionary innovation group research analyst. “As a result, the global industrial robotics market is expected to grow from $44.6bn in 2020 to $73bn in the next five years, with increasing FDA approval and patent activity.”

Long in the works- The Great Reset- wake up to the scam of the "pandemic"


Two Cases of Transverse Myelitis (Serious Neurological Disorder) in Astra Zeneca Covid Vaccine Trials -

Two previous reports:

 The latest

 AstraZeneca, Under Fire for Vaccine Safety, Releases Trial Blueprints

Experts are concerned that the company has not been more forthcoming about two participants who became seriously ill after getting its experimental vaccine.

Experts have been particularly concerned about AstraZeneca’s vaccine trials, which began in April in Britain, because of the company’s refusal to provide details about serious neurological illnesses in two participants, both women, who received its experimental vaccine in Britain.

AstraZeneca’s 111-page trial blueprint, known as a protocol, states that its goal is a vaccine with 50 percent effectiveness  

To determine with statistical confidence  (statistical confidence is not the same as the real world - due to the FACT that AZ will have cherry picked their test subjects, etc.,) whether the company has met that target, there will have to be 150 people ill with confirmed coronavirus among participants who were vaccinated or received placebo shots.

However, the plan anticipates that a safety board will perform an early analysis after there have been just 75 cases. If the vaccine is 50 percent effective at that point, it might be possible for the company to stop the trial early and apply for authorization from the government to release the vaccine for emergency use.

 The problem with looking at the data too many times, after a relatively small number of cases, is that it increases the odds of finding an appearance of safety and efficacy that might not hold up. Stopping trials early can also increase the risk of missing rare side effects that could be significant once the vaccine is given to millions of people.

Or billions of people? Making the "side effects" not so rare.

Dr. Topol said AstraZeneca’s plan, like those of Moderna and Pfizer, had a problematic feature: All count relatively mild cases of Covid-19 when measuring efficacy, which may hamper efforts to determine whether the vaccine prevents moderate or severe illness.
Cherry picking test subjects and data...
The company has released few details about the two cases of serious illness in its trial. The first participant received one dose of the vaccine before developing inflammation of the spinal cord, known as transverse myelitis, according to a participant information sheet for AstraZeneca’s vaccine from July. The condition can cause weakness in the arms and legs, paralysis, pain and bowel and bladder problems.

AZ said the first vaccine victim had "multiple sclerosis"- This serves their interest to make such a claim and shouldn't be accepted as accurate. The second vaccine victim, another women, whatever happened to her seems to have gone down the memory hole.

Transverse myelitis can sometimes be the first sign of multiple sclerosis, which involves more complex symptoms. But the myelitis alone can also occur after the body encounters an infectious agent like a virus.

The condition is rare, but serious, and experts said that finding even one case among thousands of trial participants could be a red flag. Multiple confirmed cases, they said, could be enough to halt AstraZeneca’s vaccine bid entirely.

“If there are two cases, then this starts to look like a dangerous pattern,” said Mark Slifka, a vaccine expert at Oregon Health and Science University. “If a third case of neurological disease pops up in the vaccine group, then this vaccine may be done.”

Would Astra Zeneca acknowledge a third case? Seems doubtful. 

Dr. Mark Goldberger, an infectious disease expert at the Global Antibiotic Research and Development Partnership and a former F.D.A. official, said he found the rapid restarting of trials abroad to be “a little disturbing,” especially given the lack of details around the patients’ symptoms and the ambiguity around their connection to the vaccine.
The company did not immediately inform the public about the neurological problems of either participant. Nor did it promptly alert the F.D.A. that it was again pausing its trials after the second U.K. volunteer developed illness and an independent safety board called for a temporary halt, according to multiple people familiar with the situation. The company’s chief executive told investors about the problems but did not discuss them publicly until the information was leaked and reported by STAT.

The vaccine being developed by AstraZeneca, which formed a partnership with Oxford University scientists, uses a virus meant to carry coronavirus genes into human cells and trigger an immune response that will protect people from the coronavirus. This so-called vector is a modified form of an adenovirus that causes common colds in chimpanzees but is considered safe for people. Several other companies, including Johnson & Johnson and CanSino, are pursuing similar adenovirus-based approaches, although there are multiple types of adenoviruses, and specific ingredients differ from vaccine to vaccine.

While other adenovirus-based products have seen some success in the past, they have also been linked to serious adverse events. The most famous was the case of 18-year-old Jesse Gelsinger, who died in 1999 after receiving gene therapy through an adenovirus that sparked a lethal inflammatory response from his immune system.

WHO Records Lower Coronavirus Deaths All Across the Globe- Just the Facts and Farr's Law

 The trend continues

" The World Health Organization (WHO) reports a decline in coronavirus fatalities across the globe, Hans Henri Kluge, WHO regional director for Europe, said in an interview with TASS.

"There is [an] increasing [number] of cases, but lower mortality and less people in hospitals, and less people in intensive care units," he said."

Flashback  Coronavirus Death Predictions Bring New Meaning to Hysteria- Farr's Law &Epidemics

 

Farr’s law
William Farr demonstrated that epidemics decline at a mathematically predictable rate, using empirical observations of a smallpox epidemic to confirm this. He later formulated several other mathematical equations and laws that apply to epidemics, e.g., that prevalence of a disease can be calculated from the mathematical product of incidence and the average duration.
 In the mid-19th century, Dr. William Farr made the observation that epidemic events rise and fall in a roughly symmetrical pattern that can be approximated by a bell-shaped curve. He noticed that this time-evolution behavior could be captured by a single mathematical formula (“Farr's law”) that could be used for epidemic forecasting.

Birth Pangs: Nagorno Karabakh Flares Up- Regional Instability Rises & Which Parties Want Russia and Turkey at Odds?

 It’s curious. The timing of of this flare up.  Russia and Turkey have been cooperating in Syria. Making agreements concerning Libya.  Trade. Tourism. Purchases of the S-400.

Diplomacy has been working between the two nations for some time now.

You know there are interested parties who just hate that cooperation, right?
Cue the fighting in Nagarno Karabakh! Which may draw Turkey and Russia into the fray on opposing sides. Or not.  Though Armenia is NOT the staunch ally of Russia many believe it to be. But they still do have influence.  Also, keep in mind that Armenia has a fairly large Kurdish community, that has been infiltrated by the PKK. And has participated fully in the ethnic cleansing and annexation of Syria. That has been covered here previously.

He revealed that the Armenian battalion are fighting in Al-Hasakah province, including in Ras al-Ayn, Tall Tamr and Mount Abdulaziz, and that they are composed of Armenians from many locations. 

We want to turn our militia into a bigger brigade. There are people who want to join from Syria, Lebanon, Armenia, Kurdistan and Europe

* Where the Americans, French, Israeli etc are, of course
               
After writing the intro, reminding readers of PKK involvement in Armenia I went back through days worth of reports to get an idea of what may have happened. Unsurprisingly there are  reports of movement and massing of persons at disputed territory- by the Armenians. And it was Kurdish forces.  I'd also read that this was occurring, but, it didn't click at the time. Now, of course, it does.

PKK’s involvement in the Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict would jeopardize European security

Azerbaijan

"The alarming reports that Armenia has been relocating Kurdistan Working Party (PKK) terrorists from Syria and Iraq to the occupied territories of Nagorno-Karabakh to prepare for future hostilities and train Armenian militias is news of the sort that should keep you awake at night, not only in Azerbaijan but also in Europe, writes James Wilson.

Changing the demographics of the occupied territories by bringing in refugees of Armenian origin from Lebanon, Syria and Iraq is one thing, even though unlawful, but populating Nagorno-Karabakh with PKK militants, classified by all Western countries, including the US and the EU, as a terrorist organisation, is another.

The artificial resettlement policies of Armenia following the explosion in Beirut on 4 August this year and the Syrian War in 2009, aim to change the demographics of Nagorno-Karabakh and to consolidate the 30-year-long Armenian occupation. They represent a violation of international law, the Geneva Convention and various international agreements. Professionally hired militants and terrorists being resettled to Nagorno-Karabakh would be designated as an war crime under international law, putting peace and stability in the region at risk.

The dangerous actions of Armenia risks to further destabilize the region, which has a strategic importance for Azerbaijan and Europe, as it provides energy and transport links to Georgia, Turkey and Europe for the Azerbaijani oil and gas as well as other export commodities. By jeopardizing major infrastructure projects, such as the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline, Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum gas pipeline, Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway, Armenia could put European energy and transport security at huge risk."

There is way more going on here then many realize.

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s government is busy with the deployment of terrorist organizations in the occupied Azerbaijani territories, Azerbaijani MP Arzu Naghiyev told Trend on Sept. 25.

“The main goal of the Armenian side is preparing for new provocations and war,” Naghiyev added.

 “There is enough information about the resettlement of terrorists of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) to the occupied territories.”

“Moreover, it has been proven that ASALA terrorist organization operates in the occupied territories,” the MP added. “This statement was made from the highest tribunes.”

“There is only one goal - to continue the war against Azerbaijan by using mercenaries and terrorists,” Naghiyev said. “While informing the world community on this issue at the general debate of the 75th session of the UN General Assembly, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said that Armenia recruits and uses mercenaries and terrorists from different countries against Azerbaijan. Armenia is a state sponsoring terrorism. Armenia committed more than 30 terror acts in Azerbaijan. We have credible information about the presence of Armenian ASALA terror organization on the occupied territories."
Going all the way back to Monday there are reports of an Azerbajaini

An Azerbaijani soldier was killed during a conflict with Armenia at the border, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry announced early Monday, adding that their neighbor's army had violated the cease-fire in the Tovuz region.
President Ilham Aliyev: Today, right to vote in Armenia belongs to Soros


“It doesn’t befit anyone to scratch someone else’s back. Independence in Armenia is formal in nature. What kind of an independent country is it if it cannot make decisions on its own? What kind of an independent country is it if it is ruled by Soros? Pashinyan is a product of the Soros regime. Today, the right to vote in Armenia belongs to Soros. Look at the biographies of members of Pashinyan's ruling team. All of them come from Soros, Transparency, or another human rights organization. They turn a blind eye to the despotic actions that have taken place in Armenia,” the Azerbaijani president said.

Oversensitive COVID-19 Tests Detecting Dead Coronavirus Cells, Driving False Positives...

 The huge problem with PCR testing has been covered repeatedly here. This is one point you can hammer home to the leaders/elected "officials" that shouldn't be. Send them the originating link to this article. 

I've taken this type of action repeatedly. I want the local leadership to know they are being watched and will be held to account for their treachery against us all.

If we don't do what needs to be done, for ourselves, no one else is going to.

Link

A study by the Oxford University’s Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine (Oxford, England) suggests that the current COVID-19 diagnostic tests could be too sensitive and may be detecting dead coronavirus cells, leading to overestimated infections.

According to the researchers, the tests used to diagnose COVID-19 are so sensitive that they may be indicating people are infected with SARS-CoV-2 even when they had the virus 70 days ago. Prof Carl Heneghan, director of the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine, believes that eight days after contracting COVID-19, the chances of an infected person passing on the virus to others become zero if there are no symptoms. However, fragments of the coronavirus can still remain in the body for several weeks afterwards.

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests currently used to detect SARS-CoV-2 have technical limitations as they cannot distinguish whether the virus in the patient is alive or dead. The researchers analyzed 25 studies on PCR tests and found that such tests can suggest people are infected even after their bodies’ immune system has already fought off the coronavirus because these tests only provide a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ as to whether the virus material is in the body. This means such people would test positive even though the coronavirus in their bodies may be harmless and non-infectious.

"After about day eight, you can still find the RNA fragments," Prof Heneghan told BBC Radio 4's Today program. "Some studies have reported up to 70 days that you intermittently shed. You can understand the importance of this, because what you want to do is find those with active infection and not those with the RNA fragments."

“Evidence is mounting that a good proportion of ‘new’ mild cases and people re-testing positive after quarantine or discharge from hospital are not infectious, but are simply clearing harmless virus particles which their immune system has efficiently dealt with,” added Prof Heneghan.

From earlier today

Study of UK key workers shows around half (49%) who self reported COVID-19 symptoms did not have the disease

Study of UK key workers shows around half (49%) who self reported COVID-19 symptoms did not have the disease

Undoubtedly, these “self reported” cases  made the numbers count and are all still there along with so many others. Millions and millions globally, no doubt.

The PCR test is too sensitive and should not be used for this type of identification- It is detecting remnants of virus that are dead. Making these test results a poor measure of infectiousness or actual cases that may be cause for concern. See newer post : Oversensitive COVID-19 Tests Detecting Dead Coronavirus Cells, Driving False Positives... Or prior post linked in sidebar.  The Covid House of Cards (2) "The PCR Test As Conducted Gave the Globe a Pandemic that Didn't Exist"

New research from Public Health England (PHE) presented at this week's ESCMID Conference on Coronavirus Disease (ECCVID) shows up to half of UK key workers from a cohort of just under 3,000 individuals recruited (including police, fire and healthcare workers) who had self-reported symptoms of COVID-19 did not test positive for antibodies to the disease. This suggests that their symptoms were due to other conditions. The study was presented by Ranya Mulchandani, PHE, Birmingham, UK in collaboration with PHE colleagues and academic partners across the UK.

Screening for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies is under way in some key worker groups; however, how this adds to self-reported COVID-19 illness is unclear. In this study, the team investigated the association between self-reported belief of COVID-19 illness and seropositivity.

The authors carried out a study of three key worker groups which took place at six acute NHS hospitals and two Police and Fire & Rescue sites across England in June 2020. They recruited individuals from three streams: (A) Police and Fire (B) healthcare workers and (C) healthcare workers with previously positive PCR result for COVID-19 (this last group was used to assess the immunoassay sensitivities, namely the ability of the antibody tests to correctly identify those with SARS-CoV-2 antibodies or 'true positive' rate.

The team used a study-specific questionnaire to collect self-reported signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and compared this with serology results from two SARS-CoV2 immunoassays (Nucleoprotein—Roche Elecsys and Spike-protein—EUROIMMUN).

Between 01 and 26 June, 2847 individuals were recruited: 1147 from Stream A, 1546 from Stream B and 154 from Stream C. 943 of the 2847 participants (33%) reported belief they had had COVID-19, having experienced compatible symptoms; however, 466 (49%) of these were seronegative on both antibody assays, meaning it is very unlikely they had had COVID-19. The Roche Elecsys and EUROIMMUN assays had 96.6% and 93.3% sensitivity respectively.

Self-reported belief of COVID-19 was common among the frontline worker cohort. About half of these individuals were seronegative, despite a high sensitivity (accuracy) of serology in this cohort, at least in individuals with previous positive PCR results. These data suggest that self-reported symptoms substantially overestimate COVID-19 disease relative to serology, and that in the key worker cohort studied, many mistook non-COVID-19 respiratory disease, particularly during the early part of the COVID-19 outbreak, as COVID-19.

Ranya Mulchandani, UK-FETP Field Epidemiology Fellow at Public Health England and the study's lead author, said: "In the course of this study, we tested just under a thousand people who thought they had had COVID-19 due to compatible symptoms. We found that half of them lacked any evidence of having had the infection, testing negative for the presence of antibodies. This was also true for a substantial number of frontline health workers.
Surely they got some time off with pay, perhaps even some additional danger pay and lots of attention for their dis-ease.

The Daring Plan to SAVE The Arctic With Glass? Death Cult Stupidity? Or Weather Warfare and Evil?

 Considering the carbonutzi's are a death cult?💀 My answer is... weather warfare and evil. 

  There is an understanding of the massive harm this maniacal plan can cause. (Collapsing the food chain,suffocating the planet ) But, psychos and profiteers are, well, psychos and profiteers. They don't care. So, this can't stupidity. It can only be evil.

BBC Future Planet

"The melting of the sea ice has impacts far beyond the Arctic and its inhabitants. It will contribute to rising sea levels, and some say it’s already disrupting weather patterns around the globe. If we lose our protective white shield entirely – which some reckon could happen just decades from now – it could have the same warming effect as another 25 years of fossil fuel emissions at current rates, which would mean more intense droughts, flooding and heat waves. By rebuilding sea ice, Field hopes her approach will also restore its ancient function as a planetary air-conditioner and help counteract the effects of global warming"

Some "reckon" that could happen?   Reckon = Opinion or Belief.

"Many scientists frown upon such technological interventions in Earth’s planetary system, known broadly as “geoengineering”, arguing that fiddling with nature might cause further damage. However, “the utter lack of progress on climate mitigation is really opening up a space for all of these [geoengineering] things to be discussed,” says Emily Cox, who studies climate policy and public attitudes towards geoengineering at the University of Cardiff. That said, the urgency does not erase the uncertainty. “What do you do if something goes wrong… especially in the Arctic, which is already a fairly fragile ecosystem?”


Field launched the Arctic Ice Project formerly known as ICE911 — in 2008, soon after watching the climate change documentary An Inconvenient Truth, 😱 which convinced her of the urgency of doing something about the melting sea ice. 

 About that "formerly known as"? A rebrand would suggest to us that ICE911 has a bad reputation. And their brand identity has soured. Big time! Considering the significance of a brand, ease of identity and association.- ICE911 was clearly a toxic brand. Coincidentally or not the name change took place before this article appeared at the BBC- Timing?

"We've changed our name" - September 17/2020 

Prior to the ICE911 rebranding they were in Davos. You know Davos? Where the elites mingle. Plan. Plot. Strategize. Organize. Mobilize.

New Investments and Research Indicate Multi-Trillion Dollar Market for Climate Restoration Through Carbon-Capture

At Davos, Ice911 Research announced that they will deploy testing of their climate restoration material on sea ice [In addition, Ice911 Research announced a new $50 million investment in the research of ice restoration technologies on Arctic sea-ice.] 

I'll repeat that. 

• At Davos, Ice911 Research announced that they will deploy testing of their climate restoration material on sea ice [In addition, Ice911 Research announced a new $50 million investment in the research of ice restoration technologies on Arctic sea-ice.] 

Global Climate Restoration Task Force Launched to Drive Action

To catalyze and connect the mounting initiatives and reach the scale necessary for climate restoration efforts to realize their full potential, Thunderbird and The Foundation for Climate Restoration launched a new Global Climate Restoration Task Force at a high-level event at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, along with founding partners from the private sector, government, and civil society.

“Climate change and the devastating impacts of rising global temperatures are impossible to ignore. But I know we can not only achieve climate transformation, we can also do so in a way to advance inclusive and sustainable prosperity worldwide," Khagram said. "That is the challenge of this new decade of action." 

Leaders in the global movement for climate restoration are demonstrating momentum including:

• This week Microsoft announced it will be carbon negative by 2030, and launched a $1 billion fund for carbon reduction, capture, and removal technologies over the next four years, committing to remove all carbon it has emitted since 1975. 

• In August 2019, Stripe committed to pay, at any available price, for the direct removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and its sequestration in secure, long-term storage. 

• In December 2019, Goldman Sachs pledged to spend $750 billion on sustainable finance projects over the next decade. 

• In December 2019, a record 631 investors managing over US$37 trillion signed the Global Investor Statement to Governments on Climate Change, which called for an acceleration of private sector investment into the low carbon transition and improving climate-related financial reporting.

And Ice911/ Arctic Ice Project is in with it's peers! You understand that right? 

This is the globalist death cult in action. 💀

Continuing on with the BBC- Bogus Bullshit Corporation's report

 Scientists agree that the beads are well-intentioned, but worry about their potential effects on the Arctic ecosystem. If they float around there indefinitely, “it’s just going to clog up the ocean and mess with the ecosystem,” says Cecilia Bitz, an atmospheric scientist at the University of Washington who specialises in Arctic sea ice.

Never mind the potential to "suffocate the planet"- Failing phytoplankton, failing oxygen.

But suffocating the planet is no problem, right? Don't you give that a second thought.

Field argues that the balls are safe because silica is so abundant in nature – indeed, it routinely washes from weathered rocks via rivers into the sea.

However, some biologists are concerned about the potential effects on the creatures at the base of the Arctic food chain. Depending on how much light the silica beads reflect, they could block sunlight from photosynthesising plankton, such as diatoms, algae that live under the sea ice and around it. Any change in plankton abundance could cascade up the food web and have unpredictable effects on organisms from fish to seals and polar bears, notes Karina Giesbrecht, an ocean chemist and ecologist at Canada’s University of Victoria who has studied the role of silica in Arctic ecosystems.

On top of that, the silica balls are similar in size to diatoms, which are eaten by zooplankton known as copepods, Giesbrecht notes. If the beads sank into the water column, copepods might consume them thinking they are diatoms, without gaining any nutrition. In the worst case, the copepods could starve, with knock-on effects for other members of the Arctic ecosystem.

So far, Field has been using beads that mostly stay afloat (though some inevitably sink each season), and she is planning to test their impact on plankton ecosystems. If there are any harmful effects, she’ll explore ways of tailoring the beads to make them ecologically safer, she says. One option she is considering is whether to tweak their composition such that they dissolve after a period of time. There are many other questions that her team, which is about to undertake further testing in seawater-filled pools in Alaska, will have to answer to convince the world that the approach is safe and effective.

For one, Mark Serreze, a climate scientist who directs the US National Snow and Ice Data Center at the University of Colorado, Boulder, wonders whether they’ll work as intended. “If you put down the silica beads in an area of fast-moving ocean currents, notably the Fram Strait, they will be quickly dispersed,” rendering them ineffective, he says.

 So let’s see the silica beads could damage/harm the plankton? The change in plankton would cascade up the food web and have unpredictable results on many, many living organisms from fish to seals to polar bears.. The oceans and planet could suffocate because of the harm to the plankton.
Then there is the problem of the beads being similar in size to diatoms which are eaten by zooplankton, which would then starve and die, with the cascading effects for all other members of the Arctic ecosystem
Does that all read to you like these people are trying to kill a myriad of living plants and animals with their profiteering  geo- engineeering warfare?  Weather warfare against humanity?  It certainly suggests warfare to me.  Warmakersprofiteers never give a dam about the environment and nor does this rebranded group from what I can read. 

Despite their warm and cuddly self promotion. Death Cult💀

It's way past time to wake up, friends

War Between Syrian Gov’t and Opposition Is Over: Lavrov

Syrian Observer

The entire interview:
 

"Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov considers the military confrontation between the Syrian government and the opposition in the country to be over, noting that there are only two hotspots in Syria, namely Idleb and the areas east of the Euphrates.

Lavrov said, in an interview with Al-Arabiya TV, whose text was published on the official website of the Russian Foreign Ministry on Monday, “I recently returned from Damascus, where I visited with the Russian Deputy Prime Minister, Yuri Borisov, who held talks on the prospects of economic cooperation, while I discussed with colleagues political situations.”

He continued, “I do not think that those who have spoken with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, and other state officials, can say that the government of the Syrian Arab Republic is only counting on a military solution to the conflict. This is not true. The military confrontation between the country’s government and the opposition is over.”

He explained, “Idleb’s lands are under the control of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, but this area is being narrowed. Our Turkish colleagues, based on the Russian-Turkish memorandum, continue to fight terrorists and separate the moderate opposition from them.”

Better then two years ago it was stated here that a slow liberation of Idlib was the plan Russia and Turkey had agreed to. It seemed the most sensible when one considered the entirety of the "birth pangs" situation. However, there seemed to be an on line contingent that wanted a full out losing, for Syria, battle. One that would have only seen the US and their PKK allies taking advantage of the resulting chaos. Judging by Lavrov's recent statements.. it seems my assessment of two years ago was correct.

 "He continued, “The second hotspot is the eastern side of the Euphrates River, where the American military personnel operating in the area illegally united with the separatist forces, and are playing with the Kurds in an irresponsible manner.”

Lavrov stressed that the US military, “brought American oil companies to the region and started pumping oil for their own purposes without respecting Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, as stipulated in Resolution 2254 of the United Nations Security Council.”

In a related context, Lavrov said, in response to a question about fears of a joint attack by the Syrian and Russian forces on Idleb, “There is a Russian-Turkish memorandum that is still in full force, and patrols on the M4 highway have been stopped due to security motives, because Tahrir al-Sham always carries out armed provocations and attacks the positions of the Syrian government forces, and also tries to attack the Russian air base in Hemeimeem.”

He added, “Our Turkish colleagues affirmed their commitment to fighting terrorism and separating real opponents, who are ready for negotiations with the government, from terrorists. There is no need for the Syrian army and its allies to launch any attack on Idleb. It is only necessary to target terrorist sites and eliminate their only remaining outpost on Syrian territory.”
