Ack Värmeland du fria, or, Du Gamla, Du Fria Värmland.

Ack Värmeland du fria, or Du Gamla, Du Fria Värmland.

Once upon a time, 50 years ago, at a “Gasque”(a get together of students from Chalmers Univesity of Technology and the Royal University of Technology) i sang this song.

It has since been published in the song-book Flerstämt (Notfabriken).

The song has changed during the years, but this is how it was sung the first time.

Ack Värmeland du fria, du fjällhöga nord, Du tysta bland Svea Rikes länder.

Du tronar på minnen, förlovade land Då ärad jag ändå återvänder.

Ja där vill jag leva och bli vad jag var.

Ja jag vill leva, ja-ga mig en mö.Då vet jag att aldrig dö I Norden.

 

Ack Värmeland du fria

 

China, the powerhouse of the world. Check the CO2 statistics.

The IMF numbers show China on track to produce $17.6 trillion worth of goods and services compared to the U.S.’s slated $17.4 trillion, based on a well-established and widely used economic measure known as purchasing-power parity (or PPP).
Meanwhile, in Lima, Peru, China offered new details on its commitment to rein in greenhouse gases and called on rich nations to speed up delivery of the $100 billion in annual climate-related aid they’ve promised by 2020. Su Wei, China’s lead climate negotiator, coupled his comments on China’s commitment with a call to accelerate funding for climate aid, shifting the pressure to industrialized nations, led by the U.S. and European Union, to do their part toward reaching an agreement next year. The “$10 billion is just one 10th of that objective,” and “we do not have any clear road map of meeting that target for 2020,” Su said. Climate aid is “a trust-building process,” he added.( –Alex Morales and Reed Landberg, Bloomberg, 5 December 2014)
Rich nations’ pledges of almost $10 billion to a green fund to help poor nations cope with global warming are “far from adequate,” particularly Australia’s lack of a donation, the head of China’s delegation at U.N. climate talks said on Thursday. Su Wei also urged all rich nations to deepen their planned cuts in greenhouse gas emissions, signaling that a joint Chinese-U.S. announcement of greenhouse gas curbs last month does not mean an end to deep differences on climate policy. (–Reuters, 5 December 2014)
Granted, rich nations produce more CO2 than poor nations, so how does China stack up in CO2 emissions?
Here are the stats for 2013:
China         10 GT of CO2 28% of world total
U.S.A           5                     14%
E.U.             3.6                   10%
India            2.5                     7%
Russia        2                         5%
Rest of world 13 GT           46% of world total.
By this account China is already a rich country and should be the first to share.
But it is getting worse.

Barack Obama and the Chinese negotiator agreed on a deal that U.S. would reduce its greenhouse gases by 24 to 28% by the year 2025 and China promised to try to halt its scheduled growth by the year 2030. E.U. have legislated similar reductions as the U.S.
So by 2030 we can look forward to a world CO2 emission balance like this:
China               30 GT of CO2, 45% of world total
U.S.A.                4                        7%
E.U                    3                         5%
India                  7.5                    11%
Russia              2                          3%
Rest of world 18                        28 % of world total.
This is what Barack Obama heralded as a major breakthrough!
He will allow China to become six times as powerful as the U.S.A in the next 15 years.
And we will help them by being part in transferring 100 Billion to developing countries (of which China is one) in the next 10 years.
If you doubt the numbers, consider this: China already consumes 45% of the world’s coal mining, mostly low grade, polluting lignite. The air quality in Beijing is so poor that a day that is merely unhealthy by our standards is considered a good day.
The climate conference in Lima, Peru, RIP.

Make sure your community is ready for climate change

Climate change is happening now — and we’ve got to be ready because we’re going to see more extreme weather.
That’s why we’re taking action. Last Tuesday, the President made a historic announcement with China that sets new targets for carbon pollution reductions.
And on Monday, the Administration released the Climate Resilience Toolkit to help our communities respond to our changing climate.
Check out these easy-to-use tools, including interactive maps and visualizations, that will help prepare your community for the impacts of climate change. See how you can help your community or business get ready.

Whether you’re a small business owner, planner, farmer, policy leader, or an interested resident, these tools can help you make sure that you have a climate-ready community or business.

Have questions about what climate change means for you, why it matters, and what we can do to fight it? Last Thursday, Dr. John P. Holdren, Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, announced that he wants to answer your questions.

Ask Dr. Holdren your questions on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Vine with the hashtag #AskDrH — and he’ll answer some of them on camera.

People through the ages have always complained about two things. Life isn’t fair, and the weather. Obama has promised to fix both.

[Update 2] On the other hand:

China has rejected the scrutiny of efforts to limit carbon emissions, a key tool that the US says is necessary as more than 190 countries work to come up with a new deal to fight climate change. Chinese negotiators sought to delete provisions in a draft text that would have paved the way for other countries and non-governmental organizations to submit questions about its carbon-reduction plans, according to environmental groups that are official observers to the talks. –South China Morning Post, 8 December 2014

Obviously, China is not satisfied being only six times more powerful than the U.S. by the year 2030.

Obama changes the law so illegal aliens can get Obamacare. Verse 21 in the impeachment song.

On Tuesday, Oct 25 in Chicago Obama made a speech on immigration reform, and he was interrupted by some hecklers.Obama said that the protesters were right about a lot of illegal immigrants getting deported but that he was acting to change it.

Then he said:“What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,”

On another front Barack Obama’s Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell recently told a group of Latino bloggers in an online chat that the Obama administration wants to make Obamacare available for illegal aliens.

Which brings us to verse 21 of the rapidly growing impeachment song:

I just changed the law, beware,

Illegals get Obamacare.

You are rich, you all can share

with aliens, impeach me if you dare.

 

And here is the whole impeachment song: (To the tune of “Please release me, let me go”)

Please impeach me, let me go
I can’t usurp it any more
Make decisions is a chore
and bargain, it is to me a bore.
.
I believed in change and hope.
It changed for worse, I cannot cope
I began to sulk and mope
I am at the end of my rope.
.
I have had all I can take
Dethrone me now for goodness sake
Lest a bigger mess I make
So check my credentials, I’m a fake.
.
I was made in U.S.A.,
but born in Kenya, so they say.
ineligible to play
commander, defrock me, don’t delay.
.
Nothing I did was a hit.
I acted more like a nit-wit.
Dad was just a drunken Brit.
Depose me, I’m not allowed to quit.
.
Please, I am but one lame duck
The grizzly moms have too much pluck
I am scared they’ll go amok
So boot me, your country starts to suck.
.
Sacrificed the SEAL team six
I heaved them all the old deep-six
Add Grand Treason to the mix
Disbar me! This dog has no more tricks.
.
Fast and Furious was my pace
And that’s how I did win the race.
It did blow up in my face
So launch me somewhere to outer space.
.
In Benghazi people died
And Hillary and Rice both lied.
I was AWOL, went to hide.
So face it: I’ve joined the other side.
.
AP bothered me with facts.
I spied on all their phone contacts.
That’s how a thin-skinned guy reacts,
My next move? Guantanamo barracks.
.
IRS was my best friend.
With thugs on which I did depend.
But they failed me in the end.
So jail me, or this will never end.
.
When those phony scandals broke
I shrugged my head, I’m just a bloke.
It’s not lies, I just misspoke.
I fooled you twice, now we all are broke.

VA healthcare, it is said:
Deny, delay until they’re dead.
Be found out, it is my dread
my epitaph will state: You have been had.

.

Ten* Jihadists did I free

for one deserter**, look at me;

breaking laws for all to see;

You gave me your vote, it had to be.

.

Children crossing Rio Grande;

As shields they get the welcome hand;

Open borders for my band;

Jihadists, and thugs will rule your land.

.

Lois Lerner lost her mail.

My IRS began to fail.

Soon I am no chief to hail,

Guantanamo next – and post no bail!

.

Open borders was my thing

Of amnesty for all I sing.

And Jihadists here to bring

I wanted to be Caliph and King.

.

Sharyl Atkisson was framed.

We planted secrets, she’ll be blamed.

But, she found out what we aimed.

A Quisling I am, but not ashamed.

 

Amnesty by my decree,

myself an alien, don’t you see

Constitutionality?

I’m Emp’ror, no laws apply to me.

.

In Ferguson, show no remorse;

I gave advice: “You stay the course”.

Arson, riots, join “the force”.

Alinsky has been my best resource.

.

I just changed the law, beware,

Illegals get Obamacare.

You are rich, you all can share

with aliens, impeach me if you dare.

.

*Five Jihadists were released last year as a goodwill gesture to get the negotiations with the Taliban moving, then five more for the exchange.

** The charge of deserter is unproven. I chose to use it rather than the most probable term “defector”. I have to do it since Susan Rice prematurely declared he served with “honor and distinction” which is wrong to claim in the middle of an investigation.

EPA proposes to ban – Argon? Agency run amok.

EPA Proposes to Remove 72 Chemicals from Approved Pesticide Inert Ingredient List

Release Date: 10/23/2014
Contact Information: Cathy Milbourn Milbourn.cathy@epa.gov 202-564- 4355 202-564-4355

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is requesting public comment on a proposal to remove 72 chemicals from its list of substances approved for use as inert ingredients in pesticide products.

“We are taking action to ensure that these ingredients are not added to any pesticide products unless they have been fully vetted by EPA,” said Jim Jones, Assistant Administrator for the Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention. “This is the first major step in our strategy to reduce risks from pesticides containing potentially hazardous inert ingredients.”

So banning the safe use of Argon

is part of this agency’s jargon.

It’s the new EPA

run amok, on display

“Ban everything useful” – like carbon.

Here is a partial list of the 72 substances proposed for removal from the currently approved inert ingredient list.

EPA-argon-lisr

For the chemically challenged, Argon is an inert gas (it doesn’t react with anything), is the third most common gas in the atmosphere (0.93%), is heavily used in aluminum welding to prevent oxidation among other uses.

The Argon used in these processes is taken from the air and returned to it, so there is no excuse.

Twenty days in record territory for Antarctic sea-ice in 2014. Nine new absolute records set.

(Updated Oct 10antarctic_seaice_sept19-617x416)

The results are in. New absolute record for ice in Antarctica since measurements begun was set in 2012. It was then broken in 2013, and in 2014 there was nine new absolute records, twenty-one days in record territory, and so far this year 193 daily records set.  The Antarctic ice sheet is growing year by year. It is Climate Change, and it is getting colder. Last June was the coldest month ever recorded in Antarctica.  The CO2 content in air keeps setting new records, and so does the ice, the ice keeps growing. Time to reevaluate the climate models.

Here are the 44 days with most ice ever recorded, 28 are for 2014, 15 for 2013 and one for 2012:

Nineteen days in absolute record territory and 190th daily record for ice in Antarctica!

The results are in. New absolute record for ice in Antarctica since measurements begun was set in 2012. It was then broken in 2013, and in 2014 there was nine new absolute records, nineteen days in record territory and so far this year 190 daily records set.  The Antarctic ice sheet is growing year by year. It is Climate Change, and it is getting colder. Last June was the coldest month ever recorded in Antarctica.  The CO2 content keeps rising, the ice keeps growing. Time to reevaluate the climate models.

Here are the 35 iciest days recorded:

The water on Earth predates the sun. The bible tells me so.

There was an interesting headline in Los Angeles Times’ Science Now:

Water on Earth predates the solar system, and even the sun.

There is nothing new under the sun.

God Himself told us soin the Holy Bible.

Genesis 1:1-3(NKJV)

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. 3Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.

So it should come as no surprise that the water was there before the sun was formed.

Now the scientific paper in Science  from which Los angeles Times quoted says it in scientific terms in its abstract: (by  L. Ilsedore CleevesEdwin A. BerginConel M. O’D. AlexanderFujun DuDawn GraningerKarin I. ÖbergTim J. Harries)

“Identifying the source of Earth’s water is central to understanding the origins of life-fostering environments and to assessing the prevalence of such environments in space. Water throughout the solar system exhibits deuterium-to-hydrogen enrichments, a fossil relic of low-temperature, ion-derived chemistry within either (i) the parent molecular cloud or (ii) the solar nebula protoplanetary disk. Using a comprehensive treatment of disk ionization, we find that ion-driven deuterium pathways are inefficient, which curtails the disk’s deuterated water formation and its viability as the sole source for the solar system’s water. This finding implies that, if the solar system’s formation was typical, abundant interstellar ices are available to all nascent planetary systems.”

The editor of Science tries to simplify it so all can understand:

Nature or nurture for solar system ices?

“We know that life’s favorite molecule, water, exists throughout the solar system. What we don’t know is whether present water levels reflect the chemical conditions of our parent nebula or whether they result from later reprocessing in the young system. The levels of deuterium and hydrogen in solar system water ice offer a tracer for chemical history, and Cleeves et al. model the processes at play. The analysis suggests that all nascent planetary systems may have the same water resources that we did.”

Science, this issue p. 1590

Methinks the beginning of the Holy Bible gives the best explanation of how Creation happened, completely void of scientific jargon.

In those three verses God establishes His principles:

In the Beginning – There was a beginning.

God – God was before the beginning of time and space.

Created – God Created all in the beginning

The Heavens and the Earth. – Yes, indeed every matter.

The earth was without form – Not even the sphere was formed.

And void -No life yet.

And darkness was on the face of the deep – No light was yet started, only matter, especially water.

And The Spirit of God hovered over the waters – The Holy Spirit – God’s Spirit was there at Creation forming everything.

And God Said – Here is introduced the Word that later became flesh and dwelt among us. Jesus Christ was present and active during creation.

Let there be Light – And so, the creation of life could begin.
